  • Health care prices are higher in Wyoming than elsewhere. But no one is sure exactly why.

    SETH KLAMANN, Casper Star-Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|Mar 21, 2019

    CASPER — Attempt to diagnose the reason for high health prices in Wyoming and you’ll find no shortage of supposed causes. There are the insurance companies — which one Casper doctor called a “bloated sucking worm,” but other officials said lacked the power here to dictate pricing, and one insurer said are critical to delivering care to Wyomingites. There are the hospitals, which a legislative committee is examining to determine their role in driving up prices. Others in the health sector said the facilities have an outsized role in determini...

  • Ozone levels puzzle officials

    HEATHER RICHARDS, Casper Star-Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|Mar 21, 2019

    CASPER — Joel Bousman wasn’t sure if ozone would be a problem Friday, despite a warning from the state. The snow covered the sage brush and the wind was less than 10 miles per hour — both bad signs. On the other hand, it had been overcast most of the day at the Sublette County commissioner’s ranch near Boulder — a small community about 12 miles southeast of Pinedale, within view of the Wind River Mountains. You need the right mix of factors to create ground-level ozone: sunlight, snow cover, little to no wind and, of course, emissions from the... Full story
