Weighing in ...

I am going to weigh in on a few things that have been on my mind lately, starting with the election. I realize people have been sounding off about the delegate system, about the fact Wyoming has no real voice in selection of presidential nominees....

One of our co-workers here at the Daily News had a birthday this week. He was very excited about it. Something you don’t see a lot with people who are let’s say over 40. There’s the old joke about “I’m 29 again.” I myself have been 29...

Fundamental change needed for Wyoming's revenue sources

As Wyoming enters a bust cycle potentially more damaging to our economy than previous ones, the time for fundamental change is upon us. It is illogical for state government to continue today’s spending levels without new revenue sources. The...

I’ve said in this space before a couple of my favorite Sunday news talk shows are Reliable Sources on CNN and Media Buzz on Fox. They talk about media coverage from the week’s events. I would think this week they’ll have plenty to talk about...

Life is short and so am I. I stole that from my brother. Yes, neither of us are on the tall side. But he said it in our conversation the other day when he was describing how he lightens the mood at meetings when things get too tense. Life is too...

What an exciting time in Worland. There is much to celebrate. We started off the month with a state championship high jumper in indoor track, after last month having some state championship wrestlers. Then came this past weekend. And what a weekend...

There’s a movie title from 1963, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” The movie didn’t have anything to do with politics or today’s society, but it’s a perfect title for the world we live in. The title of the movie refers to craziness...

Who cares what I think about Donald Trump?

Because not enough reporters, columnists and editors asked themselves that question, the country is now being blackjacked by a Trump candidacy that will change America, whether he wins or loses. In most newsrooms, the first announcement of a Trump...

My first car was a '51 Chevy

When you’re 72, you’ve owned a lot of cars in your life. I bought my first car when only 14, a 1951 green six cylinder Chevy two-door sedan. I thought it was wonderful. I was almost 15 and sure that the day of my birthday I’d get a driver’s...

A few years ago on Facebook I read a story about a young child trying to select the right puppy at the shelter. Each puppy she picked up her father would look at her and she would say no. He asked what she wanted and she said puppy size or so he hear...

Walking in Worland

I like to walk. We’ve always lived close to downtown Worland and so I developed habits of walking to the grocery store, to my office, and to the courthouse, bank, post office, etc. Unless a trip is more than, say, seven or eight blocks, I walk....

Every four years February gets an extra day, so instead of 28 there are 29 days in the second month of the year. Why? Well according to timeanddate.com, the additional day every four years, helps the calendar year (365 days during non-Leap Years)...

I wonder why the United States doesn’t have a better way of selecting the party nominees for president. Why for the most important position in the country do we let every state set up their own system, their own time. Some states have caucuses,...

The 2016 Budget Session for the Wyoming Legislature opened Monday and with a 20-day session things move quickly so it’s important for citizens to pay attention. There have been 158 House Bills filed and 11 House Joint Resolutions, along with 104 Se...

 

Going over my Christmas books

I’ve done quite a bit of reading during the last few months, starting with a stack of books I bought in Salt Lake City in November when my wife and I had to travel there for medical reasons. And then I got my usual bunch of books over Christmas....

Sunday there’s this big game on CBS. You may have heard something about it. It’s called the Super Bowl. The 50th anniversary of the big game in fact. I’ll be watching. My dogs will be hiding. My husband may hide too. If things go as badly for...
