    Mike Heath Laramie County Master Gardners|Jan 13, 2022

    For the past year I've been working to convert my greenhouse over to full-hydroponic even though I don't seem to be making much progress at times. During CFD I moved all of the peppers over to the first hydroponic tray from the climate-controlled warehouse unit and planted cucumbers in the upper tray.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Larry Kane|Jan 13, 2022

    I very much appreciate the Guest Columns that Mike Heath has been submitting to the Post. I have not read one single thing he has written that I disagree with. In your December 30th paper, you printed a “Letter to Editor” from Carl B. Enstrom of Lincoln, Nebraska, which I very much disagee. He was extremely critical of a recent column by Mr. Heath. He hopes his “comments will reduce the anxiety for people living in and around Pine Bluffs, Wyoming”. How kind of him to set all us ignorant folks straight. Engstrom states that “Biden has managed t...

  • The 'Call' to Serve

    Jan 13, 2022

    Why did I join the Military? This is a question I get asked a ton. The short answer is because I wanted a good job with benefits. However, there is more to it than that. I will give a little story. My dad, was in the United States Air Force and was able to move around. With that, I was born in North Dakota, moved to California, then to Panama and Nebraska, before settling in Illinois when I was in the middle of second grade. Growing up in a military family, you get to see and appreciate many...

    Mike Heath|Jan 13, 2022

    For nearly two years Liberals, Wyoming health departments, and the mainstream media have emphasized the number of COVID cases as they report daily statistics to the public as much, if not more than they emphasize the number of deaths. This is a gross misrepresentation of the data and nothing more than a scare tactic. Don’t get me wrong. The number of cases is a critically important statistic but only for internal decisions with government and the healthcare field. In fact, from a strict public health standpoint the number of cases is i...
