  • Homecoming halftime hijinks

    Jimmie Earls, Pine Bluffs Post Editor|Sep 22, 2016

    Pine Bluffs High School celebrated homecoming last week and at halftime of the football game, crowned Kyle Steger, right, as king and Montanna Chrystal (not pictured) as queen.

The home crowd got a big laugh out of the...

    Bill Sniffin|Sep 22, 2016

    A unique part of the four-year curriculum at Wyoming Catholic College in Lander is a three-week wilderness course taken by all freshmen just before starting college. The wilderness trip is a true spiritual experience as these young people from all over the USA (students come from 38 different states) as they bond with others and attend religious services with the two priests who tag along. The Catholic faith involves communion with wine and bread in the form of hosts. This is where this story...

  • Hornets win big for homecoming

    Jimmie Earls, Pine Bluffs Post Editor|Sep 22, 2016

  • Banner County News

    Barb Cross|Sep 22, 2016

    Good morning Banner County, friends and neighbors. I hope this week has been treating you well. We sure can not complain about the weather, except maybe the lack of moisture. The sunflowers are looking nice though, aren’t they? We have seen quite a few deer lately, but not the elk. The leaves are beginning to change color too and are sure beautiful. As the weather turns colder and soon after the snow begins to fly we will not be able to enjoy our National Parks quite so much, if at all. So for S...

  • Albin News

    Charlene Smith|Sep 22, 2016

    There is a legend that claims the Native Americans used the seven sisters, a constellation, to tell them when to reap and sow. With all the technology the world offers today, the best guide to our weather is still the stars above us and the living animals and crops around us. The mullee and white tail deer started their search for foliage and cover which means hunting season is not long off. The corn in the field is just about dry enough to harvest. With no help from any “app,” we can saf...

    Jimmie Earls, Pine Bluffs Post Editor|Sep 22, 2016

    With budget shortfalls expected across state, county and municipal governments, the Town of Pine Bluffs is looking to get the most bang for its Sixth Penny Tax buck for the upcoming budget cycle. Last Monday, during their bi-weekly meeting, Pine Bluffs Town Council discussed their share of tax income and how to best use those funds to cover several town projects over the next four years. “We met on the 15th (of September)”, said council member Alan Curtis, who has been acting as the town's representative at sixth penny planning meetings. “Pe...

  • Fall is a great time to mulch

    Tree Care Industry Association|Sep 22, 2016

    "I know we're supposed to do something to our trees in the fall, but what?" Tree owners often feel compelled to spray, prune or apply something to their trees and landscape plants on a regular basis. But, unless there is a specific reason to spray, prune or apply things to landscape trees, the best thing to "do" to keep your trees healthy is apply a layer of composted mulch. "Fall is a great time to be out in the yard spreading shovels-full of composted woodchip mulch under your trees," says Tchukki Andersen, BCMA, CTSP* and staff arborist...

  • Looking Back

    Sep 22, 2016

    1 Years Ago September 21, 1916 ACCUSES FRIEND OF ROBBING HIM Last night a very interesting case was considered in Justice Mann’s court, but was dismissed on account of the plaintiff being unable to present the proper evidence against those whom he had previously accused. J. O. Hamilton from near Bushnell arrived here the evening before in a state of intoxication and was assisted by Jelmer Falstrom and others in caring for his team. Being unable to secure lodging, Falstrom invited him to bunk with him. Hamilton had in his pocket book some s...
