  • Governor's task force: No easy fix for pain at the pump

    Dustin Bleizeffer, WyoFile.com|Oct 27, 2022

    There are no quick or easy ways to protect Wyoming customers from price spikes at the fuel pump, according to a new state report. Trends in regional oil-refining capacity and fuel storage are moving in the wrong direction. A state fuel tax holiday would be too costly — an estimated $120 million annual drain on state revenue — while exerting a “minimal impact” at the pumps. “Even producing substantially more crude oil would not immediately impact the supply of gas or diesel,” according to the report commissioned by Gov. Mark Gordon. Gordon form...

During a forum at the Ten Sleep Senior Center on Oct. 20, the majority of the entities spoke to the lunch crowd and answered questions.

    WENDY WIECKI, Substance Abuse Program Coordinator Cloud Peak Counseling Center|Oct 27, 2022

    Seasonal depression, also called seasonal affective disorder (SAD), is a type of depression. It’s triggered by the change of seasons and most commonly begins in the fall.

You can also get a mild version of SAD, often times just labeled the “winter blues.” Let’s face it, it’s normal to feel a little down during colder months when you’re stuck inside more and it gets darker earlier. But full SAD goes beyond this...
