Letter to the editor: Supporting Teeters this election

Posted: Wednesday, Jul 23rd, 2014
I write this letter to publicly express my heartfelt thanks to Goshen County's State Rep. Matt Teeters. Rep. Teeters was the driving force for securing a $20 million legislative grant for the new Career and Technical Education Center (CTEC) building on the EWC Torrington Campus.
Many phone calls and meetings with the EWC senior staff and I resulted in

Letter to the editor: Questions on Hill report

Posted: Wednesday, Jul 23rd, 2014
I have read the MacPherson report in its entirety and found it interesting, but the one thing I didn't find was why the state legislature added a footnote to the budget restricting T to T training (Teacher to Teacher). To me, it makes perfect sense having the best teachers show their methods to those teachers who could be better.

Letter to the editor: Can marriage be redefined?

Modified: Wednesday, Jul 23rd, 2014
Can marriage be redefined? Is marriage something that human beings made up and named, or is it something that is experienced in the very nature of man?

Recently, while attending a birthday for our grandsons, a party balloon popped and then quickly another one. I witnessed their elderly grandpa yell out; his hands began to shake uncontrollably and his breathing became labored.
I was shocked and when I asked what was happening, I was told it was PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) from serving during the Vietnam

Letter to the editor: Disabilities don’t affect the mind

Posted: Wednesday, Jul 16th, 2014
As I walk around Torrington putting up Mayor Mike Varney campaign signs, I am astounded at the tripe I am hearing. For the sake of humor, I'll tell three laughable myths.
One of several rumors says Mayor Varney is in terrible health and seeking another term as mayor against his doctor's wishes. Another says he is barely able to

Opinion column: Is Haynes onto something?

Modified: Wednesday, Jul 16th, 2014
Taylor Haynes, gubernatorial candidate for governor, created a bit of a controversy over the weekend. In an interview with the Casper Star-Tribune, Haynes said, if he were elected, his first act as governor would be to throw the federal government out of Wyoming.
Specifically, Haynes would take steps to take over all federal lines in Wyoming and open them
