Historians describe Afghanistan as the graveyard of empires. The British, Soviets — and now — the US, each failed to understand how its complex mix of language, history and culture would rupture an outsider’s zeal to fundamentally change this ancient country.

Golly G-string, once again I feel compelled to respond to another out of control article about the library and the sex police in Gillette. Do none of these people have a vagina or engage in sex? The V-Word is a collection of essays written by young women in the hopes it will inspire other yo…

In 2009, Harriet Hageman represented McMurry Redi Mix against the people of Sublette County over the expansion of a gravel pit. Though the existing pit had a tremendous impact on the local way of life, Hageman fought vehemently for it to increase from a 10-acre operation into a 335-acre mine.

We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country (e.g. China may already have the capability — which it may use in an economic crisis,) or it can occur naturally. It could re…

I’ve personally seen no less than six people leave the gay lifestyle. I’ve personally seen people enter it. I’ve personally seen people become alcoholic, and I’ve personally seen people leave the alcoholic lifestyle.

Mr. Schofield, I’m so happy you are back with your rants and ramblings about how the Democrats are destroying the world. As you kick back in your comfy recliner tuned into Fox Propaganda Network on your big screen TV, let me fill you in on a couple of things from the Democratic side.

Regarding the Sept. 7 article on page B4 of the Gillette News Record entitled “Afghanistan becomes a flash point for candidates in their race to oust Cheney,” I can only say that after I got off the floor from gales and gales of hilarious laughter that in spite of the big money from big tech…

Any reasonably intelligent, common sense individual doesn’t have to buy a vowel to figure this out. All one has to do is watch what is going on. The Democrats have one commandment that motivates them: If they can’t win under the present rules, rules that have guided this country for 250 year…

On July 17 and 18, Gillette celebrated Pride. You probably didn’t notice it unless you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community or you’re a member of the group who through intimidation caused Mikayla Oz to cancel her magic show. The same group that intimidated her a group that has also been prote…

As most of us know, a group of community members is protesting the availability of certain books in the public library. This group has repeatedly voiced their concerns that these materials are available for youth. According to the group, their campaign is an effort to “save” children.

In response to Martin Crump’s Aug. 24 letter, I would like to make a few things clear because he doesn’t seem able to grasp the true situation here.

Oh, Nello, I’m so glad that “Big Rusty” found a nice green pasture with beautiful flowers in the cemetery. I wonder how long it took him to find this little paradise? Do you suppose that he roamed our city in its entirety before he chose this lovely little Eden? I hope he saw all the beautif…

Once again, we read that a public board has been subjected in their public comments, to rants from a predictable group of citizens. No one argues that citizens have a right to confront public officials with concerns.

In response to Kathy Halvorsen, “that religion should not dictate other’s beliefs.” Neither should non-religion dictate other’s beliefs. People are being intimidated into accepting the LBGTQ agenda, witness a local church being vandalized for speaking out against this agenda.

This letter is being addressed primarily to the Gillette community. I’m writing this letter to share my appreciation and my gratitude (if you will) for what you all have done for me.

I want to thank ex-judge and library board member Charlie Anderson for his revelatory performance Aug. 12 at the meeting between county commissioners and the library board.

I love the library. I’m sure the staff there are doing their best to serve all patrons, regardless of race, sex, religion, and political belief, to the best of their ability.

He has been found! It kind of reminded me of the great racing horse Secretariat. Was of the same color, very large and had a very big heart. He just loved his artsy platform that he stood on located on the right side going north off the Gurley overpass.

Having my mom’s grandfather settle in Wyoming circa the year 1907 and many of my family still in Wyoming (including the Gillette area), I read The Gillette News Record editorial of July 31, 2021, entitled: “We will miss Mike Enzi.” It was a very nice and fitting tribute to a man who was a fo…

I am not known for being a braggart, but I suspect that I may have been instrumental in Mike Enzi’s decision to make a career change many years ago.

I am a Messianic Jew. I believe in Jehovah/God and his Son Yeshua/Jesus. I believe in the Bible, God’s Holy Word. I believe the Yeshua died for our sins, and was resurrected and will be coming back soon as our king.

There must be a way to select a Republican that can oppose and defeat L. Cheney in the next election. It will never happen unless the party can figure out a way to pare her opposition down to one or two (preferably one).

I would like to address the Bertchs’ concerns of the Mount Pisgah Cemetery beautification and sculpture programs as well as the concert in the gardens series. I truly feel sorry for the Bertchs that they believe that the cemetery is a place for sorrow and mourning only.

Regarding the “Still no masks in local schools despite CDC recommendations” article, in the July 29 Gillette News Record, all I can say is “Thank You, thank you, thank you” folks for having the brains to disavow this control nonsense issued by the CDC.

I thought I would find out first-hand what was going on at the library so I attended a board meeting on July 26. I was a few minutes late so I stood in the back. It was packed. A very good thing.

When are the religious conservatives going to dig themselves out of the ignorant hole they seem to have buried themselves in? You people are such hypocrites it should be embarrassing to you.

Many of us are aware that a local library is a vital resource for any community that considers itself part of a democracy. Beyond an expansive collection of books on any topic, your library is a hub of resources that have the power to inform and connect people of all backgrounds.

As I've watched Gillette from afar since leaving in 2013, I cannot say that I'm completely surprised at how this community has continued to divide itself even in the face of growing challenges that deserve attention and consensus.

When I think of the Gillette College, I think of opportunity. Opportunity for our young people to further their education at a much reduced cost, opportunity to meet young people coming from all parts of the world to further their education, opportunity to educate them on our agriculture, mi…

I have lived in Gillette for almost all of my life, and for the most part it has been a positive experience. Wyoming is a wonderful place to enjoy nature and everything it has to offer.
