This Side of the Pond

When a story from the UK made it across the pond last week, I couldn’t figure out what the fuss was about. Why was everyone so excited about a Roman ruin? In case you didn’t happen across the...

This Side of the Pond

In last week’s column, I took a look back at 2021 and discovered it wasn’t quite the disaster it seemed – at least, it wasn’t all that bad if you were a thieving dog or lost your wedding ring...

 

Purpose

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end – Ecl. 3:11 There exists purpose in life. This is not found in a procedure but...

 

Our View

We would like to recognize the many members of the community – and our extended community – who we have lost during the year of 2021. Our condolences to all their loved ones. In most years, we aim to include as many as possible of those who have...

Helping small businesses? Don't forget your local newspaper!

My desire to visit Disneyland was triggered by two things. The first was a photograph of an entire slice of chocolate cake defying gravity atop a milkshake, because if you're going to indulge your...

 

Dear NP

Dear NP, “In a recent column, you discussed how to lower cholesterol levels without taking medications. Please talk about the long-term side effects of taking statins, such as the increased risk of...

 

This Side of the Pond

Something sinister is happening and I don't know what to do about it. Every time I walk into my office, there's a new piece of holiday detritus staring at me. It started with a cardboard snowflake,...

 

Light

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. ~ Gen. 1:3-4 Light. The first thing God created and placed over the earth and declared good....

 

This Side of the Pond

We never have arguments about the things you’d expect in this office. It’s not current events or politics, philosophy or even sports, because that would make this a normal place to work, populated...

 

This Side of the Pond

I was tasked with making dessert for this year’s Thanksgiving feast, because my sister-in-law is as clever as she is a good host. I opted for a raspberry cheesecake and apple crumble tassies, becaus...

 

This Side of the Pond

I don’t wish to brag, but in just over two weeks I will be indulging in the purest form of Americana. For the first time in my life, I will do something I never envisioned as a possibility: walk...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear editor, Deer population is conspicuously low. I carefully read the article on the deer harvest being down, but feel that the deer population is down farther than the article suggested. I’m sure that our game wardens and biologists are far...

 

Dear NP

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, People have questioned why so many people are vaccine hesitant, especially here in northeast Wyoming. I think a quick look at a Pfizer vaccine fact sheet available at vaccine distribution outlets will shed some light on why folks are...

 

This Side of the Pond

Considering that the only complaint I have ever had about the War of Independence is the wasteful tossing of teabags into the wrong kind of water, you’d think my loyalty to a proper cup of tea...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Senator Driskill’s opinion essay (Sundance Times, October 14) on the topic of Medicaid expansion stated that we should base our opinions on the facts. I could not agree with him more, so I undertook a search of facts. On the issue of...

 

A new "normal"

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Gen. 1:1) NORMAL: Conforming to a standard, pattern, level or type. Considered usual, typical and routine. We’ve heard a lot about returning to a new normal post COVID-19. Whatever that is,...

 

This Side of the Pond

Everything changes, nothing lasts forever: these are facts we are all expected to live with. Unless your name is Nigel, in which case a formal request has been sent for your assistance in raging at...

 

This Side of the Pond

Were half the villages of my home county given new names to save the sensibilities of a queen? This is not a question I expected to ever ask myself, and it’s all the fault of a goose. I keep up...

 

Don't push Medicaid expansion on Wyoming

Every session for the past several years, the Wyoming legislature has endured one push after another for Obamacare Medicaid expansion. For my part, I have held steady against expansion in every...

 

Why we need a community forum

I am not sure what I expected our country to look like in 2021, but I certainly did not expect it to be so fractured and so bogged down in hate. My oldest son was a year old on September 11, 2001. The wave of patriotism following that day gave me...
