  • TMT Detailing, Keeping Your Car, Truck or Even Boat Looking Sharp

    Gary Honodel|Sep 7, 2023

    The Cowboy State lifestyle can be pretty tough on our vehicles. Winter weather, dirt roads, the nature of the work that pushes our economy and the Wyoming idea of recreation, pile dirt, grit and mud both inside and out. A clean car makes a happy driver, but it means more than just pride of ownership; it has a direct impact on the value of any vehicle. Enter Tate Terrill of TMT Detailing. Tate started TMT in Baggs last November. Initially it was just something of a side hustle to fill the gap whe...

  • A new feature for the kids, a survey for our readers & a word about the Sun social media accounts

    Gary Honodel|Sep 7, 2023

    This week we are introducing a special page in the Saratoga Sun for kids called Kid’s Scoop. This is developed by a retired college professor and designed to engage elementary age students with some educational and fun features that will promote reading. Reading is something we can just take for granted; maybe pass by the importance since it seems second nature to us. But not to all of us. There is an unfortunate incidence of kids reading behind grade level in our schools nationwide. Students w...

  • Books are only a problem if Our kids can Read!

    Sep 7, 2023

    Cheyenne – There has been a major dust-up over the past year or so about the materials available to our children in our school libraries and even our county libraries. While I do not condone or believe that our school libraries are an appropriate place for many of these books, I am far more concerned with the ability of our children to be able to read. According to the Wyoming Department of Education’s WYTOPP scores from school year 2021-2022, only 47.89% of our 3rd graders are reading at a proficient or above proficient level. That means a m...

  • It's All Connected

    Sep 7, 2023

    In the recently popular paranormal television series, Manifest, lead character Cal Stone and others often repeat the phrase “It’s All Connected.” The same may be said of all Creation from both Christian and Native American spirituality perspectives. In the book of Genesis, we learn “First this: God created the Heavens and the Earth—all you see, all you don’t see.” Through the stories presented, we learn how God created everything including human beings. We understand that we were created as a part of God’s creative work and to be in relationshi...

  • Investing in a grand champion

    Joshua Wood|Sep 7, 2023

    A grand champion market steer isn’t something that happens overnight, nor is it something which happens without sacrifice. Just ask Shelby Knotwell. Shelby, who graduated from Saratoga Middle/High School earlier this year, has had three grand champions with the most recent being at the 2023 Carbon County Fair. She also won in 2019 and 2021. This year, however, was even more memorable for Knotwell as her steer sold for $45 per pound to Steven Perkins, owner of Perkins Oil Company. At 1,219 p...
