  • Wyoming as a melting pot?

    Bill Sniffin|Mar 27, 2014

    One of the great things about the whole concept of the United States of America is that it is a fantastic melting pot of people of different nationalities, colors and creeds all coming together to form a nation of 50 different and diverse states. One of those states, Wyoming, is not much of a melting pot in most sections of the state. Along with North Dakota, our state is one of few states in the country that is almost entirely Caucasian. Very few African-Americans and very few...

A number of events are scheduled across the state to honor military youth. Children whose parents have been deployed live with uncertainty and concern for their parents on a daily basis.

    For the special this week at the Hereford Community Church Steve Hauer read “Is The Bible The Inspired Word of God?” The sermon topic was “A Friend’s Denial” referring to Peter. All four gospels tell about Peter when he denied knowing Jesus. But Jesus still loved Peter and gave him a second chance, just as Jesus gives each of us a second chance when we don’t do what we should. Peter repented and was forgiven. That is what we must do, too. When we make mistakes, we need to repent and ask forgive... Full story

    There sure is a lot of nonsense going on. Leprechauns, pots of gold and such and on top of all of the that mother nature has been pretty wacky. Wind chills making the weather four degrees one day, school closures, and 50/60 degrees again. All in the same week. Somewhere in all of that is spring. Although we have been enjoying the girls’ traveling basketball team competitions I am unashamed to say that I am happy that they are about to come to an end for this year. Our girls will play in Chadron this weekend, so you know what I will be up to! T...

The daughter of a successful children’s book writer, she helped edit her mother’s manuscripts from an early age but was not published herself until she was 57.

  • No Till Notes: 'Looking Back'

    Mark Watson|Mar 27, 2014

    I’ve been thinking about what I learned during the past winter months while attending numerous educational events focusing on no-till crop production. While there are many benefits to no-till crop production I think the most important message I heard was the benefits of diversifying crops and cropping systems to benefit soil health. The benefits of diversified continuous cropping are numerous including building organic matter, improved soil microbiology, water infiltration and water holding c...
