  • Lost ammo

    Zachary Laux, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Mar 6, 2014

    The Nebraska Department of Transportation temporarily closed Interstate 80 between exits 0 and 9 Feb. 27 after several 40 millimeter rounds fell off a F.E. Warren Air Force Base security forces team Humvee. The incident closed I-80 in the early morning, redirecting all traffic from both directions to Highway 30, until about 11 a.m. westbound and 9:40 eastbound. The rounds were discovered in the early morning Feb. 27, shortly after sunrise in a backpack somewhere between exits 0 and 9 on I-80,... Full story

  • Legislative Update

    John Eklund and Charlene Smith|Mar 6, 2014

    Representative John Eklund spoke about the recent decisions in the Wyoming House of Representatives and was pleased with the congruency of the decisions between the communities, counties and legislature. "The House approved $175,000 for the hardship model for communities," Eklund explained. "It was great to see the communities and counties agreeing with us for this model. Some of the bigger towns and counties could have overpowered the smaller ones but they didn't." Eklund was also pleased with... Full story

  • I'm not lost, just not here anymore

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Mar 6, 2014

    Do you ever wonder where lost things go? Not like the last game of the season that was lost. We all know those losses take up residence in the deep scars of our memory labeled regret. And not the losses of years or memory. Again, unfortunately, as the years and the unnecessary trips to the cupboard when I needed something from the fridge tell me those all go away, far far away, never to be found again. A black hole somewhere inside. I am curious, though, where the lost things such as passports,...

  • Athlete of the Week: Marquice Rivers

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Mar 6, 2014

    Marquice Rivers, son of Mary Needham, did not have the start to his senior year that he would have liked. "The football team didn't do so well," Marquice says. "But we are doing really well with basketball. It has been a lot of fun." Marquice is looking forward to the state tournament in Casper this week, as it is his first time on a state playoff team. Marquice went to state in track but does not plan to participate this year. "I really don't like running," Marquice said as he considers the...

  • State Bound: Hornets teams make state together after 22 year drought

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Mar 6, 2014

    Pine Bluffs Hornets have a winning style. Game in and game out, win or lose, they focus on the task at hand and when complete refocus on the next task. This methodology has worked well, bringing the Hornets and Lady Hornets to the highest level of competition: the state tournament in Casper numerous times in the past two decades. But not since 1992 have both teams formatted a winning strategy together and made the final tournament. Dust off the purple and gold, fill the tanks with gas, because o... Full story

  • State Competition: Been there

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Mar 6, 2014

Coach Dan Clayson was pleased with the training and the preparation and was confident the squad could hold their own. River Schroeder placed third for the highest finish of the 16. Senior Cecil Brockman ended his high school career with a fourth place state finish. Nolan Schindler placed fift... Full story

  • Wyoming State competition: Doing that

    Charlene Smith|Mar 6, 2014

    Since 1996, the Burns Broncs have ended the basketball season without more than a pat on the back and a "good job" from the coaches and parents. This year, Coach Sean Patterson and the parents are hopeful for something more. Something that could adorn the glass chambers just inside the high school doors: A championship trophy. The Burns Broncs have been to Casper since March 1996, but never quite made it to the championship round. Ironically, this team of seniors has gone to state every year sin...

  • Lady Broncs' season ends at regionals

    Charlene Smith|Mar 6, 2014

    The Lady Broncs looked forward to an aggressive battle at the 2A East Regional Tournament leading to a trip to Casper. After a disappointing loss to Big Horn in the first round, 47-41, Burns knew it would be an uphill battle. Burns led by six with less than half of the fourth quarter left, but missed rebounds and flat scoring led Big Horn to the victory. In the consolation round, Burns met Lusk, and kept up with the scoring and lead halfway through the game. In the fourth, however, Lusk found th...

  • Next season starts now, not November

    Dorothy Timm|Mar 6, 2014

    The Pawnee Coyotes basketball team lost the neutral playoff game Feb. 26 against Peetz, 60-40 at the 1A District Tournament in Sterling. The Coyotes season ended with a 2-18 record. Disappointment often comes hand in hand with hope for the future. That hope rests in the laps of the young men who will step off the bench for Pawnee next year. Some of them had extensive playing time due to the upperclassmen sustaining injuries during the season. Two scoring positions will be vacated by Austin...

  • Lady Coyotes end season

    Dorothy Timm|Mar 6, 2014

    The Pawnee Lady Coyotes Ladies traveled to Sterling Feb. 25 to play Caliche in a neutral playoff game at the 1A District Tournament held at Northeastern Junior College. The Lady Coyotes had many close games that didn't fall in the win column for them, but the fans are very proud of the A plus effort they showed all season. The Coyotes lost to Caliche 28-72, ending the season 5-15. This was the last year Caliche would play in the 1A tournament, as they will move up to 2A for the next school year....

    Sharon Stacy Janet from the Burns Library|Mar 6, 2014

    The last few weeks have sure given us a lot of snow! All this moisture has me thinking about spring, warmer weather and blooming flowers. All the moisture should really help our growing season. I’m looking forward to the blooming flowers and fresh veggies from the garden. Gardening is a great hobby for any age and is a hobby that everyone can participate in, regardless of age or health. Get a little dirt under your fingernails and plant a flower to celebrate Plant a Flower Day on March 12. On M...

  • Banner News

    Mar 6, 2014

    This week I would like to express sympathy to Carroll and the family of Geneva Mathews who passed away a week ago Monday. She was a sweet lady and a longtime resident of Banner County. It is still very cold, which is definitely Not news to any of you. However, it is also not as severely bitter cold as it was a few days ago. With February a thing of the past I was looking at the Farmer’s Almanac and thinking about this business of March coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb. There was no doubt in my mind that it came in like a lion, I...
