  • Albin Day was a scorcher

    Zach Spadt, Pine Bluffs Post|Jul 14, 2016

    The theme for Albin Day 88, "Let's Celebrate," was appropriate. Held annually for 88 years now, the event attracted attendees both young an old for a day of good, American celebration.

Lunch followed thereafter at 11 a.m. In a change of events after lunch, Laramie County Fire District 3 forewent fire hose bowling, but had an event that children loved. As...

    Bill Sniffin|Jul 14, 2016

    There is always a tired old saying: “When you lose your job, it is a recession. When I lose mine, it is a depression.” That has never been truer in Wyoming than it is today.

But lately it seems I am driving in and out of a patchwork of wildly diverse places where a lot of folks are suffering economically while nearby other folks are...

  • Albin News

    Charlene Smith|Jul 14, 2016

    If life is like a parade, then Albin Day must be the band with the majorette team. The music and the action always draw you in and make you pencil in the day for next year. It may only last one day and, by most everyone’s standards, is a smaller town festival. But just like the band with the baton girls, they may pass by in an instant, but they get your foot tapping and bring a smile to your face. Money makes everyone smile as well. Five lucky people were smiling at the end of Albin Day when t...

    StatePoint Media|Jul 14, 2016
