  • Freezin' for a reason

    Sarah Pridgeon|Mar 17, 2022

    Fundraising isn’t always for the faint-hearted. Each winter brings the opportunity for the bravest among us to leap into the icy waters of Keyhole Reservoir and raise money for Special Olympics Wyoming. Save the date for this year’s icy leap: the Jackalope Jump will be taking place at the marina at Keyhole State Park on March 26, with registration beginning at 11 a.m. and the jump beginning an hour later. Funds raised by the shivering swimmers will go towards the estimated 1600 Special Olympics athletes in this state through program costs inc...

  • Flags of our mothers

    Sarah Pridgeon|Mar 17, 2022

    Of the original six flags created for the State of Wyoming, two have hung in the Natrona County Library and Buffalo's Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum for more than 50 years. But until this week, displaying those flags was illegal. When Wyoming historian Kylie McCormick visited the county to give presentations on women's suffrage, she took a moment to discuss a particular bill from this year's legislative session. Thanks to her research, a single sentence has been added to a law from 1945 that...
