It’s not often I’m ashamed of my country of birth, but today is one of those days. I find myself horrified at the latest news coming out of the UK and I’m not sure I’ll ever see my people the...

 

Biden's land grab – the federal policy for intentional decline

It

“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). IT: A pronoun used to refer to that one previously mentioned. We are often told in this world to get with it. A movie has been made named “IT”,...

 

This Side of the Pond

For a long time, the Wyoming Legislature had a reputation for pragmatism. The lawmakers who inhabited it tended to be largely conservative, but they focused more on solving practical issues and less on fighting ideological battles that have little...

To support England’s national soccer team has always been a harrowing commitment to stress, dashed hopes and heartbreak, over and over again…but not any more. On Sunday, we came a single kick...

 

This Side of the Pond

Letters to the Editor

I ran for office as a CCMSD Board Trustee in order to make a difference, and to work with a team of people who want what is best for the district, and the people of this county. I wish to thank the people of Crook County for putting their faith in...
