  • Fall is Coming and So Is Harvest Part 2

    Mike Heath Laramie County Master Gardners|Sep 1, 2022

    This is the first year I've tried potatoes so I'm completely unfamiliar with growing and harvesting. So far, the growing piece of the equation seems to be going well. The plants are about two and a half feet tall and lush. I've been able to keep the potato beetles off so they even have most of their foliage. Last week I dug up one of the plants to see how the potatoes were developing, hoping I could start harvesting, and they weren't ready. I had about five good sized potatoes (supper) and a...

  • Wyoming Legislature Bullies Elected Officials...Again

    Mike Heath|Sep 1, 2022

    The Wyoming legislature, specifically Senator Cale Case of Fremont County, is once again trying to influence elections in Wyoming. The voters spoke and Case, among others, didn’t like their choice for Secretary of State.

This isn’t the first time Case abused his senior position in the legislature to overturn the will of the voters. In 2013, Case used his position to strip the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Cindy Hil...

    Jim Merryfield|Sep 1, 2022

Scoring was not important as learning how to deal with the play and the players against you. In a quick interview with Stu Lerwick who wears #12 and plays quarterback...
