Thanks for updating the community regarding ASUW’s conversation about the pride flag. Feelings will run strong on both sides, but let me throw in some perspective. My father landed at Normandy in the summer of 1944 and retired in his sixties as a Major in the Army Reserves. He was a flag-fly…

My family recently subscribed to the Boomerang, about one month ago. In that time, of the 4 Sunday profiles I have read, 3 have been about men and 1 was about a couple who recently had a baby. I have enjoyed all of these profiles, but still would like to see the bias shift towards sharing wo…

I am writing this letter in regards to the article posted in the Boomerang on Feb. 11 of a Laramie man killed in a crash. I am the owner of the SUV that Jeremy Dwayne Nabb was driving. I never said Jeremy Nabb stole it. The article posted was false. Jeremy had the keys and drove the SUV all …

Although retired from the University, I occasionally teach one class of the Wyoming State Constitution-required American government classes. The section I teach is designated for international students. Last spring, my class enrolled an unusually large number of students from the Middle East…

The letter to the editor submitted by Amber and Kyle Mercil Feb. 19 regarding the questionable bidding practices of the Laramie Rifle Range Corporation was spot on.

My name is Chrystal Nabb. Jeremy Nabb was my brother, the man who died in a crash Feb. 6 on Hwy 210 in the Boomerang Feb. 11. The article said Mr. Nabb was driving a SUV that was stolen from Cheyenne. That is a false statement. Jeremy had keys to the SUV and drove it quite often.

The pride flag should be flown on Prexy’s because it would be a step in the right direction for a state that has seen injustices committed against its LGBT sisters and brothers. Some say the American flag is inclusive to all Americans. It should be. But all you have to do is look at our hist…

I was recently asked to take a survey about the issues facing America today – and it is clear there are many on American’s minds: jobs, health, environment, war, veterans, women’s and civil rights for all, racism, immigration, guns, drugs, bank regulations, special interests, the 1%, corpora…

There is no doubt that some of the earliest residents of Laramie were just passing through. Exactly one year after Laramie was founded, the two great railroads, the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific, met at Promontory, Utah, on May 10, 1869. The great migration to California could now be…

When you think of successful ageing, what do you think of? We likely expect our hair to change color or amount and understand that our faces will show lines of character before too long. But those are normal ageing processes. Diminished function can be kept at bay for a long time, so I think…

I write to convey sincere appreciation to Presidents Nichols, Young, Leach, Patterson, Hicswa, and Schaffer for their strong and well-researched argument in opposition to HB 136, a bill that seeks to allow concealed firearms on campuses across the state.

House Bill 136 would permit concealed carry onto the University of Wyoming’s campus. It is puzzling that our state Legislature continues to push for firearms at UW, as a similar bill was rejected last year by UW students, staff, and faculty.

Q: I often eat an egg for breakfast because I’ve found that protein helps me feel better in the morning. However, a friend said that the cholesterol in eggs causes dementia and heart disease. Should I stop eating my egg?

No matter how successful we are in our pursuit of photography, there are always areas where we can improve our photos’ effectiveness. This is true for beginners who want to shoot a lower percentage of snap-shot photos and increase the percentage of good personal photos, and for professionals…

They’ve done it again. Members of the University of Wyoming Nordic Ski Club will, once again, represent the United States at the World University Games. Beginning Jan. 29 and going through early February, six UW skiers, two UW coaches and three ski team alumni head for Almaty, Kazakhstan. Fo…

The freshly dug mounds of dirt catch my attention. They stand out starkly against the white snow. I ski closer and get excited. I stop a foot away from the main burrow diggings, careful not to disturb anything. I am in investigative mode and hit the “recall” button on my memory.

Photography is a form of visual communication and the main goal in taking almost any photo is to draw peoples’ attention to the finished photo and then keep their attention long enough for them to derive a message from the photo.

I ran 755 consecutive days, covering some 2,022 miles. I was one of three official Wyoming members of the U.S. Running Streak Association. Alas, a year ago I had to let it go. I ended my running streak due to knee surgery. During physical therapy I was told that riding a bike was fine, thoug…
