Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:    I appreciate Mr. Thorson’s letter in favor of a state income tax, however, I am in complete disagreement with him on it. Our taxes do provide for essential services at the national, state and county levels of government — the question becomes one of how do we pay for them.    It...
To the Editor:   I applaud the three commissioners, Don Taylor, Vera Huber and Garrett Borton, who voted to add prayer back to the official meeting of the Weston County Commissioners! It clearly demonstrates courageous leadership and right order in their priorities. May the Lord bless them and all...
To the Editor: As the president of the Wyoming Association of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Centers (WAMHSAC), the executive vice president, and the chief business officer for VOA Northern Rockies (Volunteers of Ameria), we are deeply engaged in the ongoing conversation about mental health...
To the Editor:    Regarding the rise of crime rates in Weston County, as reported in the Jan. 18 issue of your newspaper.   A society’s crime rates are a somber measurement of the presence or absence of good morality among its constituents. And the only effective source of morality in any society...

To the Editor: No judge may authorize a Legislature to violate its own Constitution. Article 3, Section 3 of the Wyoming Constitution has not been amended. Article 3, Section 3 states, “Each county shall constitute a senatorial and representative district; the senate and house of representatives...
To the Editor:   I grew up in Newcastle, being a third generation to do so. I lived there for approximately 30 years, (1949 to 1979) before moving on.    At this point in time very few of the generation before me remain. I still have classmates from the Class of 1967 and friends in Newcastle. I...
Dear Editor:   Randy Vlatch has written something I can agree with and that is the United States is not a Christian Nation, however we are a nation which was founded on Christian principles.  The U.S. is the only nation which was founded on a written constitution and not by military conquest in...
To the Editor:    The article about losing the ag program leader was interesting.    There seems to be a lack of leadership in the Weston County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees and Superintendent (Brad) LaCroix. By doing nothing, you allowed this to escalate. Now you can hope this quietly...
