    Staff Report|Sep 22, 2022

    Birds in Wyoming are again testing positive for highly pathogenic avian influenza.

    Virginia Parker|Sep 22, 2022

  • How leaders take away freedom

    Mike Armstrong|Sep 22, 2022

    When I have a bad day, such as yesterday; I had an instance where one of my flexi-pipes, under my sink in the bathroom, came apart spraying water everywhere, I calmed down by reminding myself it could be way worse. I could live in Eastern Ukraine. I really can’t imagine a scenario, like what is happening in that country, especially seeing all the damage which is being done to so many towns and villages. My little pipe coming apart can’t even compare to having a bomb hit my house and losing eve...

  • Queen Elizabeth's passing

    Virginia Parker|Sep 22, 2022

    I was not surprised to hear of the Queen’s passing, but I was very sad to hear of it. My entire life I have heard and read about the British Aristocracy. My uncle was from Blackpool, England and spoke occasionally about the royals. He was not a fan, but I became one. So, when I heard of the Queen’s illness and declining health, I reminisced, remembering how impressed I was by her elegance and bearing. All families have scandals and skeletons in the closet that we want to keep hidden but in the...

    Mike Armstrong|Sep 22, 2022

    The Saratoga Panther High School football team faced the Niobrara Tigers and played extremely tough throughout the game until the 4th quarter where some tough breaks had the Tigers jump ahead 14 more points to be at 20 with eight minutes left in the game.

  • Finding the right fit

    Joshua Wood|Sep 22, 2022

    It has been said that variety is the spice of life. If that statement is true, then C6 Outfitters in Rawlins, Wyoming may certainly be bringing a little flavor to the downtown area. Owned by David and Abbey Ross, C6 Outfitters opened on March 5 at 405 W Cedar Street, right next to Buck's Sports Grill. C6 is not what one might call a typical outfitter. As if to make this point, an atypical bull elk hangs in prominence behind the cash register. While the left antler is, by all observations,...
