Letter to the editor: Firearms not the problem

Modified: Thursday, Apr 17th, 2014
Gun confiscators use only part truth, ignore facts when presented with them and quote professor Michael Bellesiles' anti-gun book. He was forced to resign from Emory University when other scholars began checking his "evidence" and "scholarly integrity".
Since the Centers for Disease Control began publishing data in 1981, gun suicides have outnumbered gun homicides. As gun homicides have declined sharply

Opinion column: Just too hot

Modified: Wednesday, Apr 16th, 2014
Spring, as the old saying goes, is in the air. Even with snow on the ground at the time of this writing and chilly temperatures forecast for the next day or two, the golf course is greening up, the robins are out in force and the air has a different, earthy feel to it.
It won't be long now before

Letter to the editor: TPP: What’s in a name?

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 16th, 2014
This time we'll look closer at the first of the two forthcoming trade agreements being negotiated by the Obama administration, TTP, or Trans-Pacific Partnership.
This agreement has been in negotiations for several years and currently includes: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chili, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam (Japan is also joining).
I wonder why

Letter to the editor: A pro-life supporter

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 16th, 2014
Sen. Al Simpson (retired) has become very vocal about his progressive views on the social/moral issues.  He claims that his opinions represent mainstream Republican, indeed conservative, values.  Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Wyoming Republican state platform declares that every child has a right to life that cannot be violated.  Simpson's view, by contrast, exactly corresponds to the

Letter to the editor: Tell Washington

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 16th, 2014
To every member of the U.S. Congress:
The U.S. Constitution is and should remain in the governing document for our nation.
All illegal immigration must be stopped immediately.
The American military must continue to be the finest in the world.
The power of special interests must be stopped and our nation returned to a constitutionally based government.
The right to

Opinion column: Is free trade really free?

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014
Have you ever read an advertisement that sounded really good until the details became known? That may be the situation with the trade agreements currently in negotiations with the Obama administration.
There are two rather big ones: TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership). Notice they both declare "partnership", common sense tells me everyone involved in

Opinion column: Climate change not settled science

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014
A real legislative representative must sometimes attend public meetings throughout the district and keep constitutes informed on what he is doing; ours does not. Matt Teeters is OUR representative, not Ireland's, and I take great umbrage in anyone showing their ignorance about human-caused global warning as a consensus science and berating Teeters, who doesn't agree.
It is far from

Opinion column: Recollections of the past

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014
A recent article in the Telegram mentioned the destruction of the McKinley Ward in Gering, Neb. The article brought back memories of my days in the kindergarten through sixth grade back in the ‘40s.
I remember the teachers, Mrs. Cheney, Roberta Franklin, Minnie Fullen and Miss Forsling, the music teacher.
One event comes to mind, when I played hooky with

Letter to the editor: Obama peace prize a joke

Modified: Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014
The Barack Obama campaign for president in 2007 was a political spiritual movement.
Faith in the leader spilled out from college campuses and public and political supporters. In America and the world, it was believed that this political messiah would be the fulfillment of all hopes and promises.
In 2009, the smart people in Oslo, Norway gave Obama

Opinion column: Our charge – drive safe

Modified: Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014
In 2013, we drove safer in Wyoming, and it paid off. We saw the fewest deaths on our highways since 1945. For the first time since World War II, when there were reduced speed limits and gas rations, Wyoming had less than 100 highway fatalities. Moreover, the decrease in fatalities in 2013 was a significant one-year change, it was a
