This summer I will attend my 50th high school graduation reunion. As someone that old, what on earth could I possibly tell a crowd of Wyoming high school or college graduates during their important time?

Some day little Theresa Freeh will realize what a special little girl she was on that Wednesday when Pope Francis kissed her.

She was among 800,000 people crowding the Vatican in the center of Rome during the sainthood ceremonies recently where two former popes were canonized.

At a recent meeting of the Lander Planning Commission, of which I have been a member for years, it was mentioned that we would soon be deciding on the addition of yet another “storage” facility on the east edge of our town.

Wyoming folks are not shy about talking about their favorite places in our home state.

And I am going to take that habit to an extreme in my next book, which will include photos and stories of 101 of Wyoming’s favorite places.

This is one of my favorite Wyoming stories and it includes an interesting twist at the end.

Yellowstone National Park is just about my single most favorite place on the planet. It is this vast two million acre park full of wonderful creatures and amazing sites.

During a long winter of road closures, sub-zero temperatures and ample snowfall, there was a long list of interesting news happenings that involved rock bands, billionaires and tragedy in the Cowboy State.

An energy development concept that seemed to fit Wyoming when first proposed 40 years ago has recently been back in the news. 
 
This idea was to establish “energy reservations” in various isolated parts of the country.  And no place in the USA has the vast amounts of energy that Wyoming has.  And as the least populated state in the country, we must admit we have some isolated places, too.
When you make a promise, keep it. – From Code of the West, Wyoming. 
 
It makes sense that the larger the population base, the bigger necessity for strict rules of conduct.  Places like Hong Kong, New York City and Dallas would not function well if people could not be counted on to obey the same rules and regulations.
