Your newspaper and newspapers across Wyoming are advocating in the state legislature to make government information more accessible to you.

Nearly 80 years ago the world watched in horror after discovering millions of Jews, supporters and other groups standing against the genocide were marched to their deaths; among them was my family. Last week, I spoke before my son’s sixth grade class regarding the Holocaust and how we survived – but also how we face many of the same and similar trials, tribulations roughly 80 years later.

The ghosts and/or spirits of Clarene Law, Leland Christensen, Hank Coe, and Jim Angell seem omnipresent when I think of the Wyoming Legislature.

The Goshen County School District’s board of trustees voted to table the approval of Superintendent Ryan Kramer’s contract to the board’s March meeting. The matter was brought up again during a special meeting held Jan. 16. The board voted to approve Kramer’s contract extension through the 2024-2025 school year. Four board members voted against the extension: Chris Alexander, Bob Peterson, Wade Phipps and Matthew Cushman.

TORRINGTON – Despite its religious roots for many cultures, people and times in history, New Year’s is mostly a secular celebration worldwide, especially in the United States.

An endearing tradition which lasted until recently when all of our lives abruptly stopped – at least for a short time.

Maybe that is the politics of Florida and California but that is not who we are or what we are here in Goshen County.

We are rapidly approaching the holiday season – with that being said, animals are not holiday gifts; they are a “furever” home commitment.

The General Election has come and gone. Though some of us may not have had the result we desired, it’s imperative to remember we are all neighbors in Goshen County, all people striving for the best for our community.
