  • How does our threesome compare when it comes to Congressional clout?

    Bill Sniffin|Jun 15, 2017

    As a long-time observer of our two U. S. Senators and one U. S. Congressperson, it would seem to me that today we have a chance to have more clout in Congress than ever before. Senior Sen. Mike Enzi is one of the most effective bill-passers in the Senate and holds powerful positions. He is widely respected and has been in Congress long enough that when he talks everyone listens. Junior Sen. John Barrasso has chosen a path climbing up the power pole in the Senate and currently is the...

    The issue of transportation of students from the Albin area to Burns High School was settled Wednesday, June 7 at the monthly Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting for the Laramie County School District No. 2. When the high school in Albin was closed in 2003, students of that community were compelled to attend either the high school in Burns or Pine Bluffs. Many chose Burns and the district made arrangements for Albin students to be transported to either high school. Since that time, and specifically this spring, the district has had to...

  • Radcliffe makes rank

    Penny Merryfield, Pine Bluffs Post|Jun 15, 2017

Radcliffe dropped out of East High School in Cheyenne in 1998. Like many teenagers she was frustrated with where she was and had visions of something different. While her grades were great, her mind and heart were not. She became a dropout. Radcliffe entered the military in 1999 because her test scores were high and the Navy had plans for...
