Letter to the editor: Puebla - Vote not all that close

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 26th, 2014
I read with great amusement the mayor's opponent's response to election results thinking the balloting was close. I have run many campaigns here in Wyoming and when employed by AT&T in Utah and California, and also in New Jersey when I was on loan to Bell Laboratories.
There are other facets when analyzing an election than the ballot numbers.

Letter to the editor: Combat veterans insulted

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 26th, 2014
Only two combat veterans, Al Hamburg and Tom Bleming, were on the ballot for U.S. Senate, and both were insulted in the Aug. 15 Casper Star-Tribune.
A newspaper has the right to support and endorse its candidates but has no right to slander and degrade others. Being in the military does not make one a combat veteran, you have to

What a wonderful hospital Torrington has. Recently, my mother, Hanna Van Mark, needed surgery. I can't express how grateful my dad, sisters and I were at the treatment our sweet mother received, and continues to receive.
Though I no longer live in Torrington, I am in the health care industry and so I asked lots of questions, looked at all

Letter to the editor: Thanks to local medical professionals

Posted: Wednesday, Aug 20th, 2014
This letter is about Community Hospital and our local medical professionals. It is not about me, but it involved me, and I would like to encourage others in our county. 
I have been visiting our local Banner Health Clinic for allergy shots regularly. It's like family time there, where I run into old neighbors and friends in the waiting room

Opinion column: Wedding rules for fathers

Modified: Wednesday, Aug 20th, 2014
After almost 60 years of searching, I have finally found the one thing for which I have an exceptional talent, Father of the Bride.
Once upon a time, I was pretty good at sports (with the clear exception of golf), working with kids and families, hunting, fishing and building things. However, they all take a back seat to my abilities
