  • Digging out, drying out from a monster spring snowstorm

    Bill Sniffin|Apr 7, 2016

    How do you prepare for a 36-inch spring snowstorm that is headed your way? Before I answer that question, let me set the scene for you: It was on a fantastic and amazing Easter Sunday afternoon when we got the news that this wonderful warm weather was about to change – and it was about to change in the most dramatic way possible. Three feet of snow? I always tell people that the Wyoming winters are mild. It is spring that will lay you low. Here in Lander, we average 110 inches of snow per y...

    The Pine Bluffs Town Council April 4 approved contracting workers to take care of the city's landscaping this summer.

  • Pine Bluffs boys place fourth in Bayard; girls finish fifth

    Coach Dustin Lee|Apr 7, 2016

    It is with great pleasure I am sending you the first track results of the 2016 season! Once again spring has come quickly and we have been working hard since early March and have been eager to show off our talents. Last week's meet in Kimball, Neb. was cancelled due to weather, but this past Saturday in Bayard, Neb, it was generally a nice day.

  • Burns girls and boys take to the track in Bayard

    Coach Brooks Hoffman|Apr 7, 2016

    The Burns track teams were excited to get out and compete in their first meet of they year. It has been a slow start fighting the elements and making adjustments to work around the Wyoming weather. It was a nice day in Bayard today only having to deal with some wind. The Burns girls team has a number of younger ladies who did well for their first high school meet. I thought that they competed well and found out what areas need some work and what areas they can build on to improve their marks. I was very pleased with the upper-class girls who re...

    Barb Cross|Apr 7, 2016

    Good morning Banner County! Hope yours is going well. I am having computer issues so will try to make this short and sweet. Short anyway. Wasn’t the weather last week something else?

In last week’s news, I commented that April Fool’s Day had come and gone..well April Fools! This week it really has. The Banner County School board will hold its regul...

  • Albin News

    Charlene Smith|Apr 7, 2016

    What is that you’re saying? You can’t please everyone all the time? Perhaps someone ought to tell Mother Nature. Not that too many people can complain. If you want more snow, we got it. If you have spring fever, the 70 degree temperatures and mild days should take care of that. That in between cool warm Tuff, got that, too, in a span of ten days. So, there will be no complaining about the weather. Mayor Kelly Krakow and Aaron Anderson again helped us get through the wet heavy snow. This las...

  • No Till Notes: 10 tips, Part 3

    Mark Watson|Apr 7, 2016

    I’ve been discussing 10 tips for successful no-till crop production and thus far I have covered choosing a good crop rotation, winter wheat as the most important crop for supplying a consistent amount of residues to make the rest of the crop rotation function, and utilizing a stripper head to manage this amount of residues. I think another important production tip for our area is to add field peas to the crop rotation prior to the winter wheat portion of the continuous no-till crop rotation. F...
