Letter to the editor: A well done program

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 1st, 2014
This is a very sincere thank you to EWC's Community Education Department for hosting Mr. Sam Mihara and his personal memories and perceptions of the day-to-day life at Heart Mountain, a Japanese-American internment camp.
Mr. Mihara conveyed how it felt to be uprooted from what he knew as his home, not really understanding why, and then for many of

Letter to the editor: Transparency

Modified: Wednesday, Oct 1st, 2014
I studied Sandy Pittman's political brochure and saw no difference in how city government operates now than her goals. She says, "It is about issues only," and names no issues.
She uses transparent differently several times, leading me to believe she doesn't understand.  In politics, transparency means holding public officials accountable and fighting corruption.
When government meetings are open to

Letter to the editor: Addressing the censure

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 1st, 2014
The recent censure of school board Trustee Valerie Peterson was another attempt to silence the people's voice. The board doesn't seem to want anybody that tries to affect any change to board policy.
The current drug testing policy, in a lot of people's opinion, is an infringement on student and parent's rights. Because the courts ruled it constitutional doesn't mean

Opinion column: It’s time

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 1st, 2014
Laramie and Cheyenne did it. Evanston, Mountain View and Burlington, too.
These five localities in Wyoming banned smoking in all bars and restaurants at some point in the last few years. Casper, Green River and Rock Springs have some level of tobacco restrictions, as well.
Last week, the Elks Lodge in Torrington took the same step, barring all smoking in

Letter to the editor: Response to Sept. 10 letter

Posted: Wednesday, Sep 24th, 2014
Two weeks in California and a wonderful surprise. The Telegram opinion Sept. 10, signed Gary Webster and titled Moses, was an example of the axiom, "You have a right to be wrong." Self-proclamation a government decree. Opinion, a personal view.
Like Moses, I'm one-sided, the truth side. Torrington was NOT sued for electrical rates. Refer to Casper paper July 23, 2012,

Letter to the editor: Questioning Islam

Posted: Wednesday, Sep 24th, 2014
How many beheadings of journalists and others will it take before the liberal media and the education establishment refutes two myths they have perpetuated for years, namely: A) That all religions are basically the same; B) That Islam is peaceful religion?
Now, for those lacking credible knowledge about Islam, allow me to remind readers that the Qu'ran (Koran) and major

Opinion column: A student-athlete’s duties

Posted: Wednesday, Sep 24th, 2014
Last Friday, I was tinkering in my father-in-law's garage a few blocks from the college when a young man dressed in EWC athletic apparel politely interrupted whatever it was I was doing and handed me a flyer, the type that hangs on a door knob if no one is home.
The flyer was information regarding the upcoming general obligation bond
