Accessing God’s power through grace and faith

Posted: Thursday, Jul 30th, 2015

God has a great plan for each person's life, and He wants us to enjoy every day of our lives. But we can't do it if we live in fear and lack confidence. Confidence is the belief that you're able to do what you need or want to do. God gives us confidence, but we need to know how

Honor our D-Day heroes

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 28th, 2015
Dear Editor,
On D-Day, General Dwight Eisenhower did not tell his troops that we were going to defeat the National Socialists so that we could cooperate with them. The order Eisenhower gave was to rid the Earth of Hitler, his band of murderous thugs, and everything that they stood for.

To love or not to love?

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 28th, 2015
Dear Editor,
Many voters have a constricted view of what is truly happening to our future and would rather follow sports figures and actors/actresses than elected leaders' and unelected judges' actions. Many don't understand what they read and tend to misquote.
In her July 15 letter, Marci said, "Both writers considered the ruling to be judicial activism", totally false. From

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 28th, 2015
When I heard about a study concerning owl vomit and cheatgrass, I thought to myself, "Now that's got to be an Op-Ed, if I ever heard of one." Then I thought, "Wow, those words would be one of the best Google searches ever!" Not that it would be the most popular search term, but one that brings a smile to

The reality of being more than a conqueror in life

Posted: Thursday, Jul 23rd, 2015

Romans 8:37 says that Christians are "more than conquerors" in this world. But do we really know what it means to be more than a conqueror? I know it took many years for me to learn what it means and how to live the victorious life Jesus died to give us as believers.
I remember many years when I

Our public lands falling under “Sharia Law”

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 21st, 2015
Dear Editor, 
A recent article in the Casper Star Tribune continued the attack on those legislators and other concerned Wyoming citizens that favor Wyoming control of the public lands in Wyoming instead of Washington, D.C. Included in the latest attack was the following, "I'd expect huge tracts being bought by Chinese billionaires, Russian oligarchs or Arab sheikhs." The last invoking

Military earns right to bear arms

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 21st, 2015
Dear Editor,
Thursday, July 16, 2015, was a dark day for our nation, and a dark day for my beloved Corps!
Four brothers lost their lives to a cowardice act of terrorism by an Islamic Extremist! The President's answer to this was for military facilities to remain vigilant. My question is how are the recruiting offices supposed to be vigilant

Congratulations Jordan and Bret

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 21st, 2015
After two false starts, Jordan finally tied the proverbial knot last week.
It was a simple, country affair. Actually, it was an all-hands-on-deck affair.
The proposal happened in May, after Bret, the groom, presented Kim and I with a pair of dwarf goats as signs of his eternal love for our daughter.
After that, it was a whirlwind six
