How to run your race to win

Posted: Thursday, Aug 27th, 2015
We've all heard the phrase, "Everyone has a race to run." That just means we all have our own lives to live. And as Christians, God has a specific purpose and plan for each of us. The apostle Paul says to us in Hebrews 12:1, "Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let

The Diaries of John Hunton: The Saga of Fallen Leaf (Part 1)

Posted: Thursday, Aug 27th, 2015
[The military and emigrants' lust for land, gold, and adventure weren't the only forces that threatened the Sioux's way of life during this bygone era. For instance, some of them were lured from their tribes by a fascination for the "white man" and his culture. In his works, my grandfather presented the following cases in point --- the sad story

Freedom is not doing what you like

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 25th, 2015
Dear Editor,
Response to Letter to the Editor, Aug. 19, 2015, ‘Wyoming's Liberty and Freedom'
How about this, "Freedom is not doing what you like, rather the right to do what you ought," (Pope John Paul II)?
In regard to the Letter to the Editor on Aug. 19, there must be a response. So, now we have made an analogy

We do listen when the Pope talks

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 25th, 2015
Dear Editor,
We would like to respond to some misrepresentations in the article, "When the Pope talks, Goshen County doesn't listen." As parishioners of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, we feel that our local clergy and Pope Francis were misquoted. This encyclical challenges everyone to conversion. This is not easy. We can't pick and choose which teachings we like

Woman has responsibility in life of child

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 25th, 2015
Dear Editor,
In response to the Aug. 19 letter equating abortion with ‘liberty and freedom,' several considerations are in order.
The author compares an unborn child to an intruder and asks, "What responsibility does the homeowner now have in respect to this intruder?" Well, the homeowner does have responsibility if she gave away her house keys. And that is what

Babies are humans, not things.

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 25th, 2015
Dear Editor,
Ms. Shaver wrote a very nice letter/opinion on the subject of abortion. And she gave some good talking points. But she misses a fundamental point. Using her own example of the intruder in the house, no court would sanction her for evicting an intruder, if that intruder was then free to go on his way and find another

Abortion is murder, reader says.

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 25th, 2015
Dear Editor,
The Declaration of Independence IS the foundation of our laws not just lofty ideals. It lists Royal abuses which guided the Founders in writing content of Articles of Confederation and Constitution. I had no ancestor as grand as Marci's husband. Mine were simple Apache warriors who had uninvited guests and did no activity to produce them so aborted

Go on a Hayride

Posted: Tuesday, Aug 25th, 2015
On a recent Thursday after a long day's work, when the weight of the week had everyone a little bogged down and ready for bed, my dad had an idea.
He recently purchased an old John Deere tractor, and aside from mowing the neighbors' ditches a few times, hadn't got to use it much.
He suggested we go on a

Diaries of John Hunton: Memories of “Calamity Jane” (Part 2)

Posted: Thursday, Aug 20th, 2015
A newspaper story of that day . . . [described] how Calamity Jane once took Mr. [James C.] Abney . . . [who] operated the first scheduled stage and mail line between Cheyenne and Fort Laramie . . . "for a ride" in one of his own rigs, figuratively speaking. On June 10, 1876, this redoubtable frontier lass rented a

Four truths that will turn your frown upside down this year

Posted: Thursday, Aug 20th, 2015
Would you like to be in a good mood every day? You are probably thinking, Yes, of course I would. Who wouldn't? I spent a lot of years being controlled by a variety of moods and believing I had no choice in how I felt. I envied all the "happy people." I used to wonder, What is their secret? Why

Wyoming’s liberty and freedom

Posted: Wednesday, Aug 19th, 2015
Dear Editor,
Thank you to Paul Puebla, for correcting my glaring 100-year error about the date the Constitution was adopted. I'm embarrassed I missed that in my proof reading, especially since my husband is directly descended from one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence! Although I love the lofty ideals espoused in that document, I understand that it

GCEDC is beneficial

Posted: Wednesday, Aug 19th, 2015
Dear Editor,
Recently Bud Patterson has written two opinion pieces for his column that have unfairly and inaccurately represented the Goshen County Economic Development Corporation. I am not directly involved in GCEDC, and my opinions do not represent theirs.
Economically speaking, our county has some serious issues, most recently with the closing of Western Sugar. This is not specific

Reaching Out

Posted: Wednesday, Aug 19th, 2015
Earlier this week I was on assignment, I like saying that, "on assignment", It sounds so international, so exciting. So, earlier this week I was on assignment at Torrington Middle School, taking pictures of a new teacher and the sixth-grade orientation, when I spied a young girl "participating" in the orientation activities. In her group, she stood off to the
