  • Sobriety Above All

    Joshua Wood, Stevenson Newspapers|Mar 9, 2023

    "I always made a promise to myself that if I was ever to use heroin again, I would make sure it killed me because I didn't want to live that lifestyle." Michelle Ellis was 13 years old when she first experimented with alcohol and marijuana. That eventually led her to prescription pain medications then to heroin and to methamphetamine. Ellis just recently celebrated three years of sobriety from methamphetamine and six years from heroin. Just like her road into addiction wasn't easy, neither was...

  • Taking the Highway to Health

    Joshua Wood, Stevenson Newspapers|Mar 9, 2023

    The famous rock band AC/DC once sang about taking a particular path to a place for those who misbehaved in life.

  • To heat or to eat

    Virginia Parker|Mar 9, 2023

    When you're hungry, you eat. When you're cold, you turn up the thermostat or build a fire in the stove. That is what the majority of us do. Sadly, this isn't the case for nearly 60,000 people in Wyoming, 1 in 8 of whom are children. It's hard to believe, but there are people in Wyoming facing the trade-off between food and heat. This dilemma has the potential to result in worsening the quality of diet for people who are already suffering, prolonging illness and in the case of the elderly, could...

  • Welcome to Siberia – Wyoming's winter body count has been high

    Bill Sniffin|Mar 9, 2023

    If you made a movie about this year’s Wyoming winter, it would have to be a survival story. There have been so many great rescue stories but also some awful accident stories. The worst was the deaths of five Missouri high school kids on Interstate 80 east of Rawlins. Another horrible Rawlins death was when a semitruck collided with an ambulance killing a young man who left behind his wife and three kids. The body count has been extraordinary with at least four wrecks each killing a pair of siblings. I just cannot imagine the devastating l...

  • A consolation for the Lady Rattlers

    Mike Armstrong|Mar 9, 2023

    Head Coach Mark Gillies is proud of the Little Snake River Valley (LSRV) Lady Rattlers. “There were plenty who didn’t think we would get to regionals this year, much less state,” Gillies said. “To get to walk away with some hardware and a win for our last game, it feels pretty good and I am really proud of this team.” Gillies said there were times in the season the team did not play up to their capabilities. He knew there was talent on the team, but too often there was not strong consisten...
