  • Karla's Kolumn: A different type of shopper

    Karla Pomeroy, Editor|Nov 24, 2018

    I didn't go Black Friday shopping. Well at least as of this writing, because, that's correct, I am at work, writing this column and working on the Saturday issue. We are closing early today and if I get all my work done there are a few local deals I plan to check out before heading over to the lighting ceremony at Pioneer Square. I'm excited about the lighting ceremony. I think it will brighten up the city for the holidays and I hope it gets everyone in the mood for Christmas. Mother Nature is...

  • Wyoming climbs out of bust

    HEATHER RICHARDS, Casper Star-Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|Nov 24, 2018

    CASPER — The oil and gas industry continues to drive down unemployment rates in parts of Wyoming, though the state average remains higher than national numbers. The U.S. unemployment rate currently sits at 3.7 percent compared to Wyoming’s 4.2 percent. The state’s gradual climb out of a simultaneous bust in coal, oil and gas has yet to fill the gaps in jobs and state income created by the downturn. But a year and a half of favorable crude prices has shifted job numbers, particularly in areas of the state where activity in the oil and gas field...

  • High-stakes showdown

    Scott Nulph, WyoSports|Nov 24, 2018

    LARAMIE – Even if Colorado State wide receiver Preston Williams hadn’t stepped out of bounds before catching a touchdown pass on the final play of the Rams’ Nov. 17 loss to Utah State, today’s matchup with the Aggies and Boise State would have still been for first place in the Mountain West Mountain Division. It just wouldn’t have quite as much juice. The No. 21-ranked Broncos (9-2 overall, 6-1 MW Mountain) host the No. 14 Aggies (10-1, 7-1 MW Mountain) at 8:15 tonight in Boise, Idaho. Not only does the winner earn a spot in next Saturday’s MW...
