In his address at the RNC Retreat, President Trump cautioned that no one should be overly optimistic about 2020. While it is true the clown corps currently running against him is doing everything they can they can think of to ensure a Trump victory, do not relax. President Trump was right on…

One of the foundations of our country is free speech. So, even though we cringe when we hear discordant messages, we know folks have a right to their opinion. Nonetheless, when that free speech is divisive, it contributes to the gridlock now present. It seems civility is almost unknown betwe…

A recent essay in Time Magazine (Sept. 9) really got my blood boiling. It wasn’t as if I was surprised by what the author, journalist Caitlin Moscatello, had to say. After all, she was simply verbalizing what many Americans seem to believe these days. And yet, as I read her short piece, I co…

Mr. Gonzales, thank you deeply for your resounding letter of support on Saturday the 7th. I really appreciate it. Just knowing that you read it and go to such lengths to refute an opinion makes it all worthwhile. Thank you.

For about a year now, I’ve been doing some research about what was, at one time, a pretty significant Jewish community here in Carbon County. This topic arose out of personal interest initially. But over the months, I have come to see that like any social history, the study of this area’s Je…

Each time I read one of Rusty Rogers articles I cringe, for good reason. He’s constantly pushing the agenda and narrative that Trump has somehow rescued the United States from adverse failure, but fails to point out that never in our country’s history have we had a commander in chief so daft…

It was about two hours prior to kick-off against Mizzou when my neighbors and I began tailgating in Summit View Parking Lot, a slab of non-clumsy-friendly gravel loaded with monstrous camper trailers, inebriated tailgaters passing around pre-game bottles of liquor and tons of portable grills…

One of the first things I did upon my arrival in Rawlins was to get myself a library card. It was as essential to me as anything else one does when they move. As far back as I can remember, when I was not playing outdoors I was reading and utilizing my school and local libraries. I spent so …

A reversal of fortune is precisely what we will get if Donald Trump is not reelected. When was the last time you can recall that we had more jobs than people to fill them? 401Ks are rising, everything lost in “08” is repaid and then some. It does bounce around some due to the perceived trade…

Summer flies it seems. Before we know it, it is time to harvest and begin planning for our next growing season. So, it is important to take some notes and make early plans for next year. For example...

For the past couple of weeks now there have been rumors – now actually confirmed – that the President has been looking into making a purchase of some new real estate to add to our Union. Initially many believed that this was just a bunch of hooey, fake news if you will. You can’t believe eve…

It is not news to the people of Rawlins that the Wyoming State Penitentiary faces a staffing crisis. Neither is it news to the Wyoming Public Employees Association (WPEA).

Back in the early days of television Groucho Marx had one of the first game shows. I don’t remember the name but it was fun and sort of interesting in its own way. The guest – or guests – would come on stage where Groucho sat at a raised desk. He would crack jokes and ask questions and if a …

I doubt that I’m alone in noticing that there seems to be a feeling of Autumn in the air these days. Each morning as I get up I can’t help but feel a slight chill as I prepare to come to work. I get the coffee brewing with a bit more alacrity than usual. And let’s be honest, the signs are al…
