January 24, 2015

It’s almost that time again — time for the 2015 FAB (For.About.By.) Women’s Conference. If it sounds different from last year already, that’s because it is.

Winter driving always an adventure

Winter travel in Wyoming is always kind of a game of chance. Sometimes it snows, sometimes it hails and sometimes its 60 degrees and sunny. Thursday, it felt like it was a little bit of all three.

Headlines we wished for, nearly achieved

Ahhh, a whole new year. The hectic 12 months that was 2014 has come to an end and I’m already filling up the calendar for 2015. In that mix are trips, hikes, meetings and the like. But really, these past few days, I’ve been getting my social media and “looking back” fix. I’m a sucker Read More

Holiday deeds that warm the heart

December 26, 2014

This time of year it is a lot of fun to be a reporter. Yes, it tends to be a quieter season, but it is also a season full of heartwarming stories of love, caring and giving. I spent this Christmas alone — well, mostly, my dog was home too. My husband was helping family Read More

Letter: Not the Democrats’ first anti-CIA rodeo

December 16, 2014

As Krauthammer correctly notes, the chair of the SCCI, Dianne Feinstein, D-California, Read More

Column: The joy of Christmas cards

One of my favorite times of year is right now. It isn’t the lights, the cheer or the overall feeling of fellowship — though I enjoy those too — that gets me going, though. I’ve said before how much I enjoy a good hand-written note, and this time of year gives me the opportunity to Read More

Column: How looking back allows you to move forward

December 5, 2014

There is something about this time of year that makes me look back. Maybe it’s the early darkness that falls each evening and keeps me indoors poring over good books and journaling. Maybe it’s the copious amounts of food that lull me into a sleepy satisfaction. Better yet, it could be all of the holiday Read More

Column: A family history

November 22, 2014

When I was younger, a couple of my family members dabbled in genealogy. We didn’t find a whole lot, but we found a little bit of information on our ancestors. I always found the hobby fascinating.
