Once a year, we Americans pause to give thanks. This is in honor of our ancestors who asked for a day of giving thanks because they had survived their first winter and because enough of them had survived the treacherous journey to form Plymouth Plantation, a small group of settlers led by Wi…

The Wyoming Board of Land Commissioners voted 4-1 on Nov. 5 to reject the surface lease of school trust land inside a proposed wind project, forgoing an estimated $21 million income over the 40 year life of the project to support our fiscally strapped public schools. Worse, that decision als…

A mandate to wear facemasks without enforcement isn’t a mandate, just another plea for cooperation from the public. A vaccine for COVD-19, third leading cause of death in the U.S., won’t be available for several months. Those who disobey the mask “mandate” (Wyoming’s compliance lowest in the…

My neighbor Nick and I got to talking the other night about Wyoming’s budget problems. With COVID and the coal industry’s collapse, the governor said the state might start abandoning small towns because we can’t afford to maintain their sewers and streets.

The late, former New York City Mayor Ed Koch was known for frequently asking, “How am I doing?” He did well enough, obviously, to earn a second term as mayor, but lost his bid for a third term to David Dinkin, who only lasted one term before being unseated by Rudy Giuliani.

We are dividedOur country is definitely divided but it’s not over race, it’s over ideology or how America should be operated. Many in our country blame this on Trump but I beg to differ. How can this be Trump’s fault when it obviously started during Obama’s presidency?

Wyoming is currently ranked ninth nationally and is in the “red zone” for new COVID-19 cases, meaning we have had more than 100 new cases for every 100,000 residents in one week. Over the past couple of weeks, there are new records in the State for number of new cases in one day, number of h…

We can agree“There, Arjun could see stationed in both armies, his fathers, grandfathers, teachers, maternal uncles, brothers, cousins, sons, nephews, grand-nephews, friends, fathers-in-law, and well-wishers.” —Bhagavad Gita 1:26.

Wind ProjectThe billboard on 3rd Street proclaims that Vedauwoo tourism will be “forever ruined” if the Rail Tie Wind Project is built. Interesting, because the turbines wouldn’t be visible from Vedauwoo, except perhaps if one was perched on top of the highest rocks.

If you wanted to spread coronavirus throughout the state of Wyoming, what better way than a football game in Laramie? And here it comes, in the midst of record-setting numbers of new COVID-19 cases on Ragtime Cowboy Joe’s 100,000-square-mile ranch.

This was not the column I had planned writing introducing myself to readers of the Boomerang, and to residents of Laramie. But as the saying goes, “Man plans and God laughs.”

When I was growing up, Halloween was a special time. We’d make our own costumes, parade in them at school, and go “trick-or-treating” in the neighborhood. Every year, we would go across the street to a welcoming home, with an older couple who had no children. I don’t remember their names, bu…

It was an ideal time for some serious thinking and pondering. We were enduring extensive windshield time recently as Nancy and I hauled our 2005 motorhome to its winter home in Las Vegas. In a car that trip makes for a long 12-hour day. In a 34,000-pound motorhome towing a car (about 58 feet…

My grandson Rhyland and I started playing chess when he was 4. Playing chess requires learning some complex rules. Learning the different ways in which each piece is permitted to move while figuring out strategies to support each move requires a player to learn the rules. Until you learn to abide by them, you’re not really playing chess.

For most of the coronavirus pandemic, Wyoming’s hospitals treated fewer than 20 coronavirus patients a day. The numbers would sometimes rise, like they did in July, but they’d soon fall again. The state’s health system was not being overrun as was feared when the virus first emerged here in March.

The University of Wyoming and the state lost a legend with the passing of Dr. George Frison on Sept. 7 at age 95. Thanks in large part to him, Wyoming folks can see that big game hunting is an unbroken thread of our culture that runs from the Ice Age right up to the present.

Unlike some of his urban counterparts across the country, Sundance Mayor Paul Brooks’ call to defund his small town’s police department isn’t about racial equity or criminal-justice reform. It’s purely about keeping the lights on.
