    Roscoe the Rascal|Mar 23, 2023

    Hello everyone, it's me Roscoe. A few weeks ago I said I would give you a glimpse into a typical day for me. I am not sure if the day is supposed to start about 2 a.m. when Shadow wakes Mom up to put her outside, for what no one knows, but if she goes well I have to go because I don't want to miss out on anything. If Shadow really has to use the doggie restroom, she does so quickly and goes back to the door. Sometimes we have to chase off a stray cat, sometimes some deer, or check out to make...

    AVERY HOWE, Staff Reporter|Mar 23, 2023

    When Debbie Hammons was first elected to the Wyoming House of Representatives in 2005, a reporter asked her how it felt to be a minority. She replied, "Which minority are you talking about? Being a woman or being a Democrat or being from the Big Horn Basin?" Hammons was born in 1950 and raised on a Worland, Wyoming ranch.

To get it out of my mind, I’m writing about everything (Maybe not all but 800-plus words worth) in this column. So, in no particular order, here we go. Aaron Rodgers returned from his darkness retreat and learned on that journey that he’d like to play for the New York Jets. I don’t know what’s more on brand, Aaron Rodg...
