Your opinion piece about the forum, “Why Truth Matters: The Murder of Matthew Shepard...20 Years Later,” should have been on the editorial page. It’s ironic that a forum about truthfully exploring multiple sides of an issue was covered completely one-sided by your reporters. Thank you for co…

Your front page story was 180 degrees out of phase with what I observed! Your “journalists” were not factual. THE PRESENTATION WAS NOBLE AND POWERFUL. To write in your lengthy article that Mr. Jimenez was “willfully and knowingly lying” on the front page of your paper is repeating slander an…

Coverage of an October 9 forum in Laramie — “Why Truth Matters: The Murder of Matthew Shepard . . . . 20 Years Later” — quotes Wyoming Equality’s Sara Burlingame as saying that one of its participants, Stephen Jimenez, author of The Book of Matt, “is willfully and knowingly lying.” If the qu…

I was riveted to my seat for the nearly three hours of panelist comments, video clips, and heart-wrenching stories from eye-witnesses and family members of those affected by the murder trials of Mathew Shepherd.

During the public forum held at the Albany County Library on Sept. 20, 2018, a question was asked from the public regarding the hiring standards that the sheriff candidates would incorporate. I gave an example of the hiring standard my opponent, Mr. O’Malley, had previously used. Essentially…

Well folks, I have really good news – the radiative Greenhous Effect (GHE) hypothesis has been conclusively shown to be false. It can’t be true because it violates the second law of thermodynamics. This means that so-called ‘Greenhouse Gases’ is also a false concept and atmospheric CO2 has b…

The lead story in the Sept. 7 edition of the Boomerang caused me to reflect on an issue I have thought about for many years- the legacy for the Laramie community created because of the national fervor related to the death of Matthew Shepard and the trial of Aaron McKinney and Russell Henders…

It is inconceivable to me that any thinking person would view Stephen Jimenez’s book about Matthew Shepard as anything other than an attempt to cash in on a tragic event. The article does not identify who organized the panel to discuss Mr. Jimenez’s work of fiction, but it demonstrates a sho…

Let’s make Wyoming and America Great Again. Register and vote this election. We have been so greatly divided by the Trump administration. They have pitted the United States against the world, media against media, Democrat against Republican, black against white, brother against brother, and …

An old landmark of Laramie has come to light with the opening of the new Snowy Range Bridge over the railroad tracks. It is a large stone building, a remnant of Laramie’s original glass factory. It sits behind the Gas Light Motel on Third Street, especially visible when traveling east over t…

Leading up to August’s primary election, this board strongly encouraged voters to support renewing the sixth penny, or specific purpose tax. The measure overwhelmingly passed with just more than 80 percent of Albany County voters’ approval.

Stoics believed that underneath the worst, there is always worse. I think that is always a good place to start, so things can be kept in perspective. We have three egomaniacs named Putin, Kim Il Un and Trump and other strong men together in something like wedded bliss. We have a nation with …

I am writing in response to Pat Buchanan’s column of October 2nd. In that column he lays out the case for why Republicans need to play hardball with the current Supreme Court nomination and any other part of the current political process of social change. His premise is that post WWII courts…

Pat Buchanan asked “Are Republicans born wimps?” A song in South Pacific answers “You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear.” And they hate losing power and the fact that the majority of American people did not vote for Trump, do not approve of the job he or Congress is doing. They are afraid…

Running for political office asks a lot of people. A successful campaign usually entails spending hours meeting with potential voters, devouring as much information as possible on the issues and engaging in — we hope — spirited yet civil debate with one’s opponents. Not to mention the increa…
