    The recent pardon of the late world heavy weight champion Jack Johnson by our president was a gracious act long overdue. A previous motion had passed the House but died in the Senate in 2008. Johnson’s racially motivated conviction for violating the Mann Act after he had married a white woman resulted in his beginning a year term in Leavenworth prison in 1920. It was not a salutary place; I buried one of its inmates who had done much more than a year there. Johnson skipped bail and spent several years in Europe via Canada. In Barcelona, much in need...

    In the fall of 2018, the first legal, scheduled grizzly bear hunt managed by a state government, will be held by Wyoming. Much of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) is in the state of Wyoming. Grizzly bear-human conflicts have escalated with the expanding grizzly bear population. In 2017, of the 56 known and probable deaths of grizzly bears in the GYE, most were caused when bears attacked people or were destroying property. From wdtn.com: Names will be drawn until 10 hunters have paid for their licenses and certified they've taken a firearms safety course. Each license will be valid...

    The Idaho Fish and Game Commission on Thursday approved a limited hunting season for grizzly bears in eastern Idaho just a year after the animals were removed from the Endangered Species List. Under the plan, the Department of Fish and Game will hold a random drawing to award one Idaho hunter a grizzly tag for a hunting season running from Sept. 1 to Nov. 15. If successful, the hunter won't be allowed to reapply for future tags. Baiting or hound-hunting will not be allowed. Grizzlies in the Yellowstone National Park region were on the Endangered Species Act list until 2017,...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming school district where U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos suggested that teachers might need to be armed to protect children from grizzly bears voted Tuesday on doing just that, though concerns about school shootings worry parents more than the possibility of big bruins on the prowl. The 4-2 vote by the Park County School District No. 6 board in the town of Cody near Yellowstone National Park came after more than six months of discussion and debate. Under the proposed policy...
  • Teenager Dies From Explosion of Makeshift Cannon in Wyoming

    A 14-year-old boy in rural Wyoming who was building a small cannon using instructions from YouTube videos died after the contraption exploded, a local newspaper reported on Friday. The cannon misfired late on Thursday as Archie Pearce was assembling its components, in an abandoned lot in the northern Wyoming community of Recluse, the Gillette News Record reported. A 12-year-old child who was with Pearce was later treated at a hospital for minor flash burns. They were building the device as an experiment, with no intent to cause harm, Campbell County Sheriff Scott Matheny told the newspaper. "They were in over...

    Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed HB 141 on 12 March, 2018. The bill reforms state law to restore First (freedom of religion) and Second (right to keep and bear arms) Amendment rights. The bill repeals existing state law that bans concealed weapons in any place people are assembled for public worship. From kemmerergazette.com: Monday, March 12, Governor Mead signed HEA 34 (HB 141). This not a gun bill; it is a government bill. “Concealed Weapons in Places of Worship” is not about whether concealed weapons will be in places of worship or not. It is about whether church or...

    A family is suing a Michigan school district after a group of kindergarteners allegedly sodomized their child and recorded the assault on an iPad. The federal lawsuit, filed this week against the Grandville School District, claims that nearly four years ago, the district failed to intervene when five-year-old “Jimmy Doe” of Century Park Learning Center in Wyoming, Michigan was taken to the “mudroom” and was forcibly touched, sodomized, and photographed by classmates. The lawsuit specifically names the victim's kindergarten teacher Hillary Hubert, former Grandville School district superintendent Ron Caniff, current superintendent Roger Bearup, assistant superintendent Scott Merkel, and the school’s...

    More than two dozen Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to re-engage in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. The 25 GOP lawmakers sent a letter to Trump on Friday saying they support his recent comments that he may consider U.S. participation if the 11-nation Asia-Pacific pact is improved.

    Since Donald Trump's election, environmental zealots have mostly had a very rough two weeks — and Donald Trump has had nothing to do with any of it. Two developments they consider really bad (meaning good for the rest of us) far outweigh the single item they're celebrating. First, in Wyoming, just two days after the election, their "fracking is bad" Exhibit A in Pavillion, Wyoming was completely discredited. Second, in Texas this week, a huge oil discovery was reported — so big and unprecedented that the only commenter at the Associated Press's coverage of the story at the Washington Post...

Weatherby’s move to Sheridan is expected to create 70 to 90 jobs and more than $5 million in annual payroll over the next five years.

    Republican establishment-types in the House, as well as congressional Democrats, say they are close to finalizing a bipartisan amnesty plan for as many as 3.5 million illegal aliens. In a comment to the Hill, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) said a group of House Republicans and Democrats were swiftly crafting an amnesty to push for passage either this week or at the beginning of the new year. “We’ve had very good meetings here with the Problem Solvers Caucus — [Rep.] Will Hurd [R-Texas] has been working on a potential compromise with some Democrats as well, so we could see something as...

    Sen. John Barrasso said Wednesday there will be plenty of time to tackle immigration reform, including a new policy for children brought to the U.S. illegally, early in 2018. “The deadline that President Trump has set is actually March and so there’s time to do that,” Mr. Barrasso, Wyoming Republican, said on Fox News. “There are discussions. But for me, I’m going to focus on border security, enforcement and ending chain migration.” Mr. Trump announced the end of DACA — an Obama-era policy that allowed people brought to the U.S. illegally as children to stay — and asked Congress to...

    “Watch your step. It’s steep on the way down.” There’s something unnerving about climbing down a set of narrow stairs and into a metal pod buried on a rural plot of Wyoming ranch land — bad things happen in buried bunkers, don’t you know — and when coupled with the darkness of the room below, it feels bit like you’re stepping to your doom. “There’s nothing to be scared of. You’re safe down here,” Dylan* said, stifling a laugh. The 35-year-old father of two has spent the last few years preparing for disaster, and the addition of this pre-fabbed steel...

    Planned Parenthood loses 27 more facilities in 2017 and is down to 597 in the US. Prior to 2002, there was no easy way of verifying exactly how many Planned Parenthood medical facilities existed in the United States. Planned Parenthood published a number every year and we had to believe its number. But, by 2002, the network of STOPP contacts across the United States had grown so much that we could verify a lot of PP’s claims. In addition, the Internet had become very useful and helped us track everything. As a result, we began doing an annual survey of...

    Parents are upset about politics’ pervasiveness in the classroom. One of the answers a Jackson Hole High School English teacher gave her students on a multiple choice quiz Thursday was “A) He was shooting at Trump.” Teton County School District No. 1 confirmed the answer was on a quiz administered online by their secure learning management system. The quiz has since been taken down. Jim McCollum was surprised when his son Rylee McCollum, a junior, came home and showed him a screenshot of the online test. "I had to read it two times," McCollum said. "I was like, 'Are you...
