    Sep 14, 2016

    CHEYENNE (AP) — Wyoming voters will decide in November whether to change the state constitution to allow the investment of billions more dollars of state funds in the stock market. Supporters say the move would allow the state to reap higher returns. Opponents counter that the state shouldn’t bet money it can’t afford to lose. The Wyoming constitution currently allows the Legislature to direct the investment of state permanent funds and the funds of the state public employee retirement system into stocks and other equities. Currently, state...

  • It's the International Year of the Pulses

    Mae Smith, Columnist|Sep 14, 2016

    When I first heard that 2016 was designated by the United Nations as International Year of the Pulses I thought, ‘Pulse, like a heartbeat?’ I was wrong. They were not talking about a heartbeat. Pulses are legumes like beans, peas and lentils. Dry beans, which are a pulse, are grown in the Big Horn Basin. Many pulses are also major components of cover crops and others are found on native rangelands. A whole year was dedicated to these amazing plant parts for many reasons. 1. Pulses are healthy to eat. They are a good source of protein, fib...

    Robert Gagliardi, WyoSports|Sep 14, 2016

    LARAMIE — Shaun Wick said he feels good, despite a different role. The University of Wyoming senior running back missed the final eight games of last season due to concussions. He was granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA to come back this season, and he figured to join junior Brian Hill as a potent 1-2 duo. Hill and Wick are fifth and seventh, respectively, on UW’s career rushing list. But through the Cowboys’ first two games, Hill has 50 carries for 174 yards and three touchdowns. Wick has 10 carries for 22 yards. “I feel good an...
