    Jimmie Earls, Pine Bluffs Post Editor|Mar 24, 2016

    The Laramie County Sheriffs Department is urging area residents to keep their vehicles secure and not to keep valuables visible through windows after a series of car burglaries in Burns and the surrounding area.

  • Our lonely and amazing roads provide vital links to citizens

    Bill Sniffin|Mar 24, 2016

    Last week, we took our time cruising through that amazing labyrinth known as Wind River Canyon between Shoshoni and Thermopolis. The narrow towering walls staring down on you (sometimes through the sunroof) can make a person feel pretty small. It took Mother Nature millions of years to carve that gorge through the Owl Creek Mountains, sometimes gouging out less than an inch a year. Over time, you get this impressive cut in the mountains. And how important is this cut? It is a primary route for...

    Jimmie Earls, Pine Bluffs Post Editor|Mar 24, 2016

    The Town of Albin has given Kaiser Flooring from Cheyenne to green light to replace the gym floor in the town’s community center. The Albin Town Council met March 10 and opened one bid received from Kaiser, which came in at $76,265. The original quote from Kaiser back in November 2015 was for $84,000, which included game lines and the Wildcat logo in the center of the basketball court. The latest bid did not include graphics. “It says game lines are not included, so what would it cost, I wonder,” said Mayor Kelly Krakow. “That may be the dif...

    At certain times in our life, we wonder where the time went. If we still have some left to accomplish all of our dreams and goals. Springs arrival often makes us feel as if things are left undone. As if we need to get busy so summer will show up. Have no fear, friends. Spring is here for a while, and summer will come, whether you weed, feed, plant, and clean or not. Speaking of cleaning, nothing clears out the winter muck and dust like an Auxiliary broom. They are still available at the...
