  • Different digits for assistance

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Nov 14, 2013

    For a while now, the dispatch for emergency, police and fire calls have been going through the Laramie County Combined Communication Center in Cheyenne. And the transition, albeit some hiccups, has gone well, "It is still a process of transition," Pine Bluffs Police Chief Robin Clark said. "The biggest thing is using addresses whenever we talk to dispatch. They don't know where 'John's' house is." Clark added her officers need to adapt and say they are at an address rather than "Exxon," since... Full story

  • A thankful and colorful Veteran's Day

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Nov 14, 2013

    The area schools and American Auxiliary Post 60 didn't wait until the eleventh hour on the eleventh day to show their appreciation and respect to local Veterans, Monday. Carpenter hosted a breakfast for the Veterans along with interviews by the students and a chance to get their picture taken with family. The Burns elementary showed up later and helped honor, with their voices, the 40 local Veterans present. The service time varied from two years to 35 years and all the branches of the military...

  • Is Mike Enzi Pater Familias? And is Liz Cheney bona fide?

    Bill Sniffin,|Nov 14, 2013

    Having breakfast with Liz Cheney recently and listening to her at our Rotary Club got me thinking about this unprecedented Republican U. S. Senate primary race going on in Wyoming. Cheney and three-term senior Sen. Mike Enzi have raised over two million dollars and the primary election is not until August 2014. Amazing. This race got me thinking about a movie. Watching the Coen Brothers motion picture, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, brings to mind some great lines in connection with the race...

  • Help save a life by reaching out to our veterans

    Bobbie Barrasso|Nov 14, 2013

    Help begins with a conversation. As a co-chair of the Congressional Spouses for Suicide Prevention and Education, I'm taking the opportunity to join the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in raising awareness of the problem of suicide among our active military, veterans, and their families. It is important we recognize suicide and address it as a public health crisis. In Wyoming, suicide is currently the 7th leading cause of death – and veterans make up an estimated 20 percent of t...

    Barb Cross|Nov 14, 2013

    Good morning! Here we are smack in the middle of November. Hard to believe isn't it? The lawn is still green although this last snow wiped out all of the leaves. We woke up Monday morning to a shroud of fog for as far as we could see which was about ¼ of a mile. Cold too. I told the kids the bus might be a few minutes off due to the weather; she pulled in and Joe couldn't find his coat. She waited, and finally went ahead on to school, which is more than I would have probably done if I...

  • Rescue gets new look

    Charlene Smith, Pine Bluffs Post staff|Nov 14, 2013

    After months of waiting, Albin watched its new ambulance drive down main street Monday afternoon to the fire hall where it will be housed in between runs.

The town oversees the ambulance and its volunteers which is separate from the volunteer fire department. The new ambulance was purchased from...

  • Hereford News

    Carolyn Ragsdale|Nov 14, 2013

    For the special this week at the Hereford Community Church Steve Hauer read "The Sighs of the Puppy." The sermon topic was "Prayer Power." Prayer is the foundation of a relationship with God. Romans 8:26-30 tells us that when we don't know how to pray, the Holy Spirit helps us. We should pray about situations we face, for our families, and for our needs. We are told to pray in the name of Jesus. So even though God knows what we need, when we pray God moves to change our situations. Next week...

  • Hornets November Newsletter

    Todd Sweeter|Nov 14, 2013

    We are just beginning one of the few quiet times within a school year. Most sports are between seasons, we are two months away from Christmas, and there are no state assessments looming.

Academics: The after school study program has been very successful. Every Tuesday and Wednesday there are several students that come in and receive...

  • Looking Back

    Nov 14, 2013

    1 years ago Postmaster General Burleson's attention should be called to the rotten mail service that is being dished up to the American people. We have no fault to find with the postmasters, but there is surely something wrong somewhere when mail is on the road three or four days between two post offices. Two wagons to which were attached eight horses and two drawn by six big mules attracted much attention on Carey avenue yesterday for the animals proved that they were drawing more than...

  • No Till Notes "Grinding"

    Mark Watson|Nov 14, 2013

    We finally were able to start combining our irrigated corn yesterday afternoon as the moisture in the corn dropped to below 16% which was welcome news. Overnight it snowed about 4 inches, so we're back in a holding pattern again. This has been a familiar pattern this fall planting and harvesting season. I was visiting with a good friend of mine who was comparing his sugar beet harvest to the crab fishermen on the television show "Deadliest Catch". He felt his sugar beet harvest was similar to...
