Most all of us are familiar with the Spider-man origin story. How Peter Parker, after acquiring his powers, is cautioned by his Uncle Ben that, “With great power, comes great responsibility.” I would like to expound further on that by saying, “With failure to exercise that great responsibili…

The loss of this program will adversely effect at-risk youth in the state of Wyoming. Currently there are five students out of Gillette who are being discharged mid program without the benefit of the hard work they put in over the last two months. The current class is to be returned to their…

Why move the City Pool? There is already a pool at the Rec Center, and there is a water park out at the Energy Capital Sports Complex. The thing about the Sports Complex and the Rec Center is that they are out in the blazing sun in high traffic areas.

In your Aug. 30 article on the library board meeting, you reference board member Charles Butler who said he read the ALA’s Code of Ethics, which opens with the sentence, “we significantly influence or control the selection, organization, preservation, and dissemination of information.” Mr. B…

I would like to thank the semi-genuine letters of revival from Florida to anywhere else they lied from to renovate the Liz Cheney doctrine of “dip-stick-ed-ness” and conspire to continue her rule here in Wyoming. Unfortunately, unlike many states, Wyoming residents have a brain quite larger …

I voted for Liz Cheney twice. I was even willing to give her a pass at the impeachment vote for former President Trump. But only one month after January 6, when she stated that President Trump “does not have a role as the leader of our party going forward,” I was amazed she could even voice …

Republican In Name Only is a term that is disrespectful and violates Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment, “Thou shalt not disparage another Republican.” Yet I find a use for it here.

I just received one of those expensive full color campaign flyers in the mail today and am shocked at the hatefulness and tone of it. Has Ogden Driskill resorted to bringing Washington D. C. politics to Wyoming? Is the rumor true that Liz Cheney’s war chest is funding Ogden?

To the voters in Senate District 23, I encourage you to support Eric Barlow with your vote. He has proven himself as an effective legislator with the ability to get things done for the good of Campbell County and the State of Wyoming. Being selected to be Speaker of the House by his peers sh…

I would like to attempt replying to Ms. Eddy’s question about who would vote for congresswoman Cheney. Anyone that watched helplessly while an armed mob stormed the Capitol building and waving the American flag as they killed police officers. And you think that is normal?

January 6, 2021 a coup nearly overturned the election and thus destroy our democracy. Every U.S. elected official and federal employees should be denouncing that day’s heinous actions at the top of their voices, condemning those who participated in the riot and work to find out how this coup…

In youth sports today, where is the line that separates tough love, educating, teaching competitiveness and being “too hard”? As a teammate, parent, coach, or spectator. At what point does it become harassment or abuse? To me the answer is easy; when a player is afraid to play the game, go t…

The Primary is right around the corner, and Wyomingites are faced with a choice. Harriet Hageman has demonstrated which side she really is on. She’ll make the same claims as ever about smaller government and opening up natural resources, but the real draw that she is counting on is that she …

In a July 7th, Cowboy State Daily interview, Secretary of State Ed Buchanan reacted to the statewide showings of the film “2000 Mules” by strongly denying any suggestion of voter fraud in Wyoming. Tara Nethercott, who wants his job, was quick to applaud Buchanan, writing she was “proud” of h…

This Texan wants to thank you, Wyoming, for giving us Liz Cheney. Representative Cheney is a beacon of light, a speaker of truth and a true patriot. She has become America’s Representative as she stands for the things that make this country great. She is a national treasure.

Abortion is now illegal in many states. Or soon will be, because of “Trigger Laws,” passed by state legislatures in anticipation of Roe v. Wade being overturned. (One such law is pending in Wyoming.)

During the Sheridan congressional candidate forum one topic that was heavily on the minds of Harriet Hageman, Robyn Belinskey, and Anthony Bouchard was how unfair the treatment has been of the Jan. 6 insurrectionists as compared to the rioters in Portland, Oregon.

In 2016, Rep. Liz Cheney was lauded as a “proven, courageous, constitutional conservative” by Harriet Hageman. Back then, Ms. Hageman disparaged Donald Trump as “someone who is racist and xenophobic.”

With all the vitriol about the Roe v. Wade decision, it might be enlightening to reveal the truth about what an abortion entails.

Campbell County Attorney, Mitch Damsky, during the public forums for re-election waved Tyler Martinson’s wrongful conviction for child abuse in the air like it was a trophy. The very unfortunate baby involved was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Yet, despite the medical evidence,…

I live in the Foothills subdivision, and have done so for over 40 years. The current project to rebuild and straighten Foothills Boulevard has been plagued by vandals who have moved and destroyed the road signs placed for the safety of the public because they were “inconvenienced” or as a prank.

I am writing in appreciation for the excellent article discussing the work and impending retirement of my longtime colleague and friend, attorney Francis “Frank” Stevens. This was read with a mixture of sadness to see him stop his terrific work, and happiness that he has chosen new pathways.

During the Sheridan candidate forum for congress, candidate Harriet Hageman raised an issue about Mark Zuckerberg’s donation of $400 million that she claims was used to fraudulently elect Joe Biden. This money is dubbed “Zukerbucks” by those who continue to believe the stolen election lies.

Liz Cheney is a wolf in sheep clothing. As she tries to destroy Donald Trump and everyone who has ever supported him she boldly asks the voters of Wyoming to forgive and forget. President Trump did more for this country than anybody in recent history and continues to help hold this nation to…

As I warned in an earlier letter, the U.S. Supreme Court, its rationale colored by the historical contortions of Samuel Alito, followed through on a leaked rough draft of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. In a 6-3 decision, the Court casually erased a woman’s constitutional right…

Election time once again. Time to sit through the public forums, or watch later on GPA or PBS. Time to make decisions about the future direction of our wonderful city. Do we move forward, stagnate, or slide backwards? The essence of most elections is always taxes. No one likes to pay taxes, …

When I Pastored, The Westside Baptist Church, and lived in Gillette, Wyoming, for 10 years (1993-2003), I guess I got spoiled about how the 4th of July OUGHT TO BE CELEBRATED by any and all proud, American communities. While I am sure there are other communities out there, I haven’t seen any…
