Commentary

My, how things have changed in my wonderful newspaper business over the past 45 years!

We all know that Wyoming is the windiest state in the union but gusts recorded back on Jan. 5 raised some eyebrows.

They were so severe, U. S. Sen. Mike Enzi even posted some of them on his Facebook page.

Wyoming is full of unusual and mysterious places. The Medicine Wheel between Lovell and Sheridan is one such place.  The birthing rock north of Rock Springs is another.  And one of the oddest of all is the Ames Monument, known as the  “pyramid of the plains” located between Cheyenne and Laramie.

For a while it was all around me and then poof, it was gone. I am referring to the year 2014.  How could a year go by that quickly?

Alas, this means it is time to offer up my 2015 predictions of what is going to happen. 

Both statewide and worldwide, the biggest news story of 2014 has involved oil – both in how prices have dipped and how production has grown.

Sometimes, just sending folks a piece of Wyoming can suffice, even if it is a small one.

Retiring Secretary of State Max Maxfield thinks copies of the new Wyoming commemorative coin would make a great Christmas gift.

In a recent column, I questioned that in the current Wyoming Republican-dominated political landscape, would it even be possible for such popular Democrat governors as Ed Herschler, Mike Sullivan or Dave Freudenthal to win today?
