It is somewhat disheartening that the astounding clarity and truth my opinions exude regarding local, state and national issues, as well as seasonal conundrums that crop up and are cordially covered (like when I hit a bad pot hole and my false teeth fell out and bit me in the leg, or when I …

I grew up in what you’d call a “progressive community.” I don’t know where Mrs. Michaels’ grew up, but in the 1950s we had a heated year round indoor pool, a fantastic free library started by Phoebe Hearst, a beautiful theatre (formerly an opera house), free hospital and clinic and other unb…

Please allow a few lines about what is called “The Trump Bump,” increasing daily due to the absolute insanity of the liberals and the total hypocrisy and outright lies they put forth each and every day to the American people.

I appreciate the letter of my Democrat opponent to the News Record because it allows me to respond and therefore educate her and my constituents regarding the dire straits that we face in terms of our state budget.

Writing about people we love that have passed on is one of the most difficult writing assignments anyone could have delivered to their doorstep. Nevertheless, this Norwegian shall not be remiss in his duty to try to explain just what we had in our wonderful Kathy Brown, (almost four decades …

In a recent News Record article, Rep. Hallinan referred to a white paper developed by the Joint Committee on Education in 2016. The paper suggests five solutions which could modify or reduce education funding. He stated that the paper “… laid out how we can cut education funding by $200 mill…

Gillette, Wyoming, is a community full of good people from every fabric of life that continue to help their friends and neighbors, as we continue to lift each other up to new levels of success and creativity. These are the neighbors across the fence in every direction, north, south, east and…

There is much to be said about the exceedingly and increasingly disgusting discourse of national, state, and local politics and the tolls and polls they take on our humanity and freedom as Americans using the ingenious art of deception and propaganda, willfully splattered haphazardly across …

This letter is written in response to Deb Michaels recent 8/25/20 progressive rattlesnake bite entitled "Our political lie is out of control" (spelled verbatim correct as printed), in which she slops on about our "small, socially and culturally challenged town of Gillette and rural Campbell …

I recently read a very disturbing letter to the editor written by Deb Michaels concerning politics in Gillette. After thinking on it, I decided to respond with a letter of my own regarding the topic.

Kathy Brown always had a smile on her face. Kathy’s stories in the Community Section of the News Record were always my favorite. Her smile would even show through in the stories she wrote.

I’m sorry that I haven’t had an opponent in this primary election as it hasn’t allowed me to take part in the inquiries to the candidates listed in the News Record. People who know me know that I have no desire to keep my opinions to myself.

People who know Wyoming know Wyoming. It’s not much more complicated than that. We can also tell who is from here versus who just lives here.

I’m sure many readers were shocked to see the large, expensive ad by the “Frontier Conservatives PAC, LLC” in the Aug. 10 issue of the News Record.

“Disheartening”, “surprising”, “shocking”, “unfair”, “outrageous”, “slanderous”, disrespectful”, “egregious”, “broken”, “sick”, “unpatriotic”: These are only a sample of the numerous words circulating in conversations around our county regarding so many recent local political events.

Campbell County needs to send respected, recognized, and experienced representation to the 2021 Wyoming Legislature. Voters in Senate District #24 with their vote in Wyoming’s Aug. 18 Primary can make that happen.

Primary elections are Aug. 18. Nearly all local, county AND state races have more than one person running. That is good for the community: We hear differing opinions and there is opportunity for debate.

I’ve tried to figure out why America is so embarrassingly inept when dealing with COVID-19. Despite health professionals’ bravery and sacrifice, we are failing to meet the pandemic’s challenges.

My name is Jason Peterson and I write to the community as a whole in an effort to sincerely apologize to all of those who reside in the Gillette and Campbell County areas for my irresponsible and selfish behavior.

Voting citizens of Campbell County, I urge you to remove the incumbent, unelected County Commissioners in the upcoming election and pursue new leadership. Commissioner Faber and Commissioner Shelstad have shown themselves to be unworthy of our trust as leaders.

We need change. Wyoming is in trouble. The warning light has been furiously blinking warning of trouble to come and our current legislators remain oblivious. Rep. Barlow, Rep. Pownell, and Sen. Von Flatern have failed every one of us.

It was with bucket list-like appreciation in my heart that I read the front page article in the July 21 News Record print edition headlined “Generations enjoy flight of a lifetime” with the subhead “For many, flying in WWII bombers more than a thrill ride, it’s emotional.”

Some may have read of the different escapades of my disappearing dumpster — diving into the ditch one day, running to the neighbor’s yard the next day, spiraling into the wind the next week or, like the Flying Dutchman, showing up in unlikely places like Moorcroft as if it rode there on the …

I enjoyed greatly the “Red, might and blue” headline and article in the hard copy of the June 30 News Record, with the sub-line “Campbell County residents step up to save Fourth of July celebration.” (I love Gillette)!

Why is there no push by local officials to get people to wear masks and practice social distancing? How is this pandemic going to end? Wait it out, wish it away?

I am disappointed in the Mayor, City Council and Ann Turner, as editor of the Gillette News Record. Shay Lundvall is an individual of impeccable moral character. Can he make a mistake in judgment? The answer is a simple “yes.”

Rural hospitals in financial trouble should concern everyone. Even our beautiful hospital here in Gillette and our beautiful long-term care facility Legacy Living Center are at the heart of this issue. This is not just affecting someone else somewhere else it will affect every person living …
