Brown letter: ‘Even if one jihadist gets in, we all are at risk’

Sue Green was right to remind us of the history of man’s brutality to man. Evil will continue to plague mankind long after Sue and I are dead. But we need to move the dialogue forward from the 1600s to the current state of events.

Why so much building at the University of Wyoming?
Posted: April 26, 2016

The coal miners that were recently laid off in Thunder Basin should all move to Laramie and go to work on the University of Wyoming campus and enter into the university’s “new building a month” program.

Public input critical to new junior high school plans
Updated: April 25, 2016 - 11:04 pm

Recently in the Laramie Boomerang, I read that architects have advised the Albany County School Board that Laramie needs to have two junior high schools. It amazes me we (allow) out of town people to dictate what Laramie needs or doesn’t need.

O’Hara letter: Violence can be diminished
Posted: April 24, 2016

I write in response to two fine letters from Jean Brown (April 10) and Sue Greene (April 17) on the subject of terrorism fostered (or not) by Christianity and Islam. Their letters address the inherent danger of any organized religion, usually created by men, that takes up arms in the name of Jesus or Mohammad — masquerading fanaticism as religious zeal.

Posted: April 24, 2016

About the possible sale of 700 acres of city-owned land to the Mountain Cement Co. for its use in expanding shale mining operations, several questions and concerns come to my mind.

Posted: April 24, 2016

Spring snow comes, and spring snow goes, but the beautiful people of Laradise are a constant. Thank you to everyone who stopped by Java Java Espresso on Friday to contribute to a fundraising event for Home on the Range Animal Haven. Kim and her crew went above and beyond to make this event a tremendous success.

Collins letter: A great day to spend with artists
Posted: April 24, 2016

This past dreary Saturday afternoon was brightened with a visit to an art exhibit at the Lincoln Community Center. Young artists in various stages of artistic development gave me the opportunity to see their recent work and have my mind dance to some real toe-tappers.

Obermiller letter: Mental health care needed for suicidal individuals
Posted: April 24, 2016

I noticed the photo story featuring three officers who were given medals in connection to their response to a person who expressed suicidal thoughts some time ago, which caused enough of a disruption at the Snowy Range Ski & Recreation Area that a police response was requested. I don’t remember reading the details of how this individual, who was said to have a knife, poised enough of a threat to the three officers where deadly force was needed in order to subdue this “suicidal” and apparently threatening individual.

Green letter: Terrorism by, against people of all faiths should be stopped
Posted: April 17, 2016

I am responding to Jean Brown’s editorial about “helping” the discussion of immigration from Iraq. Jean says in her letter that, “We don’t find these types of terrorist acts from other faiths.” Excuse me? Terrorism has been with us before most of us knew what a “Muslim” was.

Brizuela letter: Democratic super-delegates for Hillary Clinton, stick to your guns
Posted: April 17, 2016

About 13 percent of the U.S. population is African-American, and we have elected a black president twice. About 51 percent of our population is female, but we have never even nominated a woman for president. All of our daughters and granddaughters have said, at some time, “I want to grow up to be president.” This is our chance to show them that it can really happen.
