Legislative Update — Sept. 19

Hello Sublette County and LaBarge, this is Albert Sommers reporting to you from the interim of the 66th Legislature. On Sept. 6-7, I participated in the Joint Education Committee (JEC) meeting in Cheyenne. On Sept. 8, along with a delegation of folks from Sublette County, we met with members and staff of the State Land and Investment Board (SLIB) to discuss state grant funding for Sublette County’s new hospital project.

Column: Sport fishing and conservation

Most fishers, local or visitors, are not that interested in the history or current philosophy surrounding recreational fishing and conservation of aquatic species. They want to visit a pristine stream or lake, absorb nature and have an opportunity to hook a game fish. I believe it would be good, particularly for locals, to have an understanding of the complexities of managing recreational fishing in conjunction with conservation and how it relates to the water they are currently fishing.

Letter to the editor: county virtues?

Sublette County elected commissioners Joel Bousman, Sam White and Tom Noble have opened the flood gates for out-of-state developers to rezone (A1) ultra rural migratory corridors of threatened species for individual developer financial gain against Sublette County Planning and Zoning Board recommendations and overwhelming Sublette County resident opposition. The allowance to rezone for out-of-state billionaire Joe Ricketts' Upper Hoback resort and multi-millionaire California real estate developers Jason (Smee Homes Inc/CA and Rim Realty Inc/WY) and Melinda Moyes' (Melson Realty/CA and Rim Realty Inc/WY) 40 Rod property for monetary gain is contradictory to community virtue.

Clay Kainer announces candidacy for Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney

In May of 2022, Kainer had no intention of running as a Republican nominee for the office of the Sublette County and Prosecuting Attorney. Although he knew there was widespread dissatisfaction with the current administration, he did not appreciate how bad things had truly become. A wide and diverse group of citizens who approached Kainer made it clear that the candidates who were on the ballot for the Republican nomination would simply maintain the status quo.

The Intrepid Explorer: Sept. 30

We are asked to shoulder the responsibility and allow punishment from the atrocities of our forefathers. Everyone of now should deny this. We should never forget what has transpired. In fact, this is what we should learn from.

Sublette County Artists’ Guild early activities

The membership of the Artists’ Guild has always been very involved in creating countywide community events. In 1935 the club sponsored a reenactment of the Green River Rendezvous, with members writing the script and helping put on the show at the Daniel historical site. The pageant has continued on in the same tradition under the sponsorship of the Sublette County Historical Society and now the Green River Rendezvous Pageant Association.

Column: We get stranded because we’re not bright

Like everyone else who lives in this cold tundra, we plan our summers carefully. All winter as we’re notified of summer happenings, we jot it down, and one particular weekend, “shindig” was on our list. We got up early, donning shorts, hats and sunglasses, remembering money and sunscreen, and loaded our lawn chairs. It never crossed our minds to tote an extra car battery. Boy, we’re irresponsible … and dense.

Letter to the editor

I would like to encourage Dr. J.I. Bertoncelj to educate herself on the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. I believe she will discover that without the efforts of past hunter/conservationists like John Audubon and Teddy Roosevelt, it's unlikely there would be "magnificent bull moose" to view.

Guest column: Where have all the workers gone?

Numbers point in two different directions. Our older workers are retiring in numbers greater than we’ve experienced before, including those who are retiring at a non-traditional age (i.e., under age 65); and the decline in millennials working in Wyoming is substantially greater than the decline in the state’s overall millennial population. There are several possible reasons for this...

Local column: College kids just need money

Another funny item was a vacuum. Oh, so naïve. It said Bissell models came with a washable filter. If a kid ever packed a cleaning device into a dorm, trust me, it would never be moved from its spot, and that filter would remain so pristine, you could use it in a surgical unit.

The Intrepid Explorer

Nietzsche became “an inscription surface” for the typewriter and famously typed "our writing tools are also working on our thoughts." This meaning is that when we use a typewriter, as when we now use a smartphone, at one level we are inscribing information onto paper or a screen; but at another level the device is inscribing ways of thinking on us.
