    Pow! Pow! Pow! That was the sound of the explosions coming from the high-powered revolvers used by some rough-looking, tough-talking cowboy-types in front of the Irma Hotel in downtown Cody. We were there in July and my granddaughters held their hands over their ears in shock at just how loud a high-powered pistol could be. The Cody Gunfighters have been staging their downtown shootout six nights a week from June to September since the 1980s before big crowds in front of the historic Irma...

    Jimmie Earls, Pine Bluffs Post Editor|Sep 15, 2016

    Where does a 6-foot-10, 235-pound senior forward, who has multiple basketball scholarship offers on the table, go after high school? Anywhere he wants to!

    A coolness is in the air, a different color of blue brightens our afternoon skies. A change is in the air. Maybe the weather thought since we have settled into the new school year, it, too, could settle into fall. This season of warm afternoons and cool mornings always comes a little too soon for the youngsters. As we age, it seems, we welcome fall more and more.
