Letter to the Editor

This Side of the Pond

Getting Boris Johnson out of 10 Downing Street has proven to be a lot like trying to persuade a wasp out through an open window. It doesn’t want to go and its main skill set involves dipping and...

Freedom

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). Freedom: autonomy, self-determination, independence, choice. All very desirable and rightly so, yet wrongly applied to the hurt of self and many. Freedom is recognizing...

This Side of the Pond

Quick, off the top of your head: what edible item are you least likely to include in your dinner plans tonight? If your answer was “stinging nettles”, I’m afraid you’re not going to be much...

 

This Side of the Pond

Secretary Buchanan responds to Mike Lindell's comments regarding Wyoming elections

Mike Lindell is NOT the purveyor of election integrity truth. On May 29, 2022, Mike Lindell, peddler of pillows and promises, traveled to Wyoming to speak in conjunction with a political rally. While here, he took it upon himself to allege publicly...

 

This Side of the Pond

I’ve been confusing my husband for years, but neither of us realized I was doing it. While that sentence could probably apply to our entire marriage, in this case I’m talking specifically about my...

Weary indifference

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Gal. 6:9 Life gets weary. Tiring, wiping or wearing one out. The resulting disillusionment and jadedness can sap and exhaust an individual,...

 

State should back away from crypto

Given Sen. Cynthia Lummis’ mentioning Bitcoin during her ill-advised graduation address at the University of Wyoming a few weeks ago, it seems fitting to discuss how bad cryptocurrency is as a followup. Cryptocurrency isn’t what its backers claim...

 

Letters to the Editor

Old Glory I have seen Old Glory flying in the wind after the smoke of attacks clear away. Sandstorms weather my colors in a matter of hours. My heart still fills with pride seeing the “Colors” fly high over this great country. Flying the flag...

This Side of the Pond

Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed here in the US since 1949, but it seems like we mostly haven’t paid attention to it because maybe it didn’t apply to us – or so we thought. We’re fine. Our family is fine. Our neighbors are...

If you’re a follower of the royal family, you already know that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration is in full swing. To commemorate her 70 years on the throne we have a brand new dessert,...

 

Letter to the Editor

“If men are not governed by GOD they will be ruled by tyrants.” – William Penn “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams “It cannot be...

 

Editorial: Casper Star-Tribune, May 8

Guest Editorial

I recently received a fund-raising appeal, that says, "Dear Friend, The Liberal elites, the Fake News Media and the Marxist Democrats hate America – and they hate you." I am tired of the politics...

 

Postscript

Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him – Prov. 30:5 Postscript. Better known as “P.S.”, a postscript is used when someone wants to add information at the end of a letter or email. These are often...

 

Letter to the Editor
