It may be another Netflix weekend

February 27, 2015

Hi, my name is Kristen and I’m a Netflix-aholic. Well, not really, but I’m seriously considering becoming one this weekend. We don’t watch a lot of TV in our house. Yes, we have cable — but it’s mostly so I can watch the cable news channels. Otherwise, my husband and I watch the occasional episode Read More

A changing sense of home

February 21, 2015

As you grow older — moving from high school, to college and to your first jobs — the concept of home changes with you. When you’re younger, home is where your parents are. It’s where you live and where you are surrounded by loved ones. In college, my sense of home changed a little bit. Read More

Somehow, winter plans turn to summer adventures

February 14, 2015

About this time last year, I was sitting around a table with glasses of wine, a few friends and a map. The map was of the Bighorn Mountains and we were starting to plan our trek up Cloud Peak. There is something about this time of year that leads to plans. While this month has Read More

Sad realizations

February 7, 2015

It is a sad day when you realize your pet is getting older. Of course, each day they age. But one day, you look up and you realize that they aren’t quite as spry as they used to be. That day happened to me a couple of weekends ago. My husband and I went snowshoeing Read More

Column: Award season buzz

January 31, 2015

This time of year is always a blast for me. I never watch the red-carpet awards shows, but I like to read the follow-up coverage on who won and who was nominated. The coverage helps me pick out the movies I may have missed throughout the year and need to either catch in the local Read More

Column: Almost time for FAB

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. We heard some feedback from attendees and those who couldn’t make it that fall was just a tough time of year to get away. So, we moved the event Read More

Winter driving always an adventure

January 16, 2015

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. That day, I drove to Cheyenne with two Press reporters to attend the Wyoming Press Association convention (see Read More

Headlines we wished for, nearly achieved

January 2, 2015

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

Column: Joys of travel, holidays

December 20, 2014

A couple of days ago, I began a trip down to Florida to hang out with my husband and his family who live just outside of Gainesville. I haven’t spent much time in Florida, but I’ve spent many, many hours in airports. In college, I was in an airport almost every weekend between February and Read More

Column: The joy of Christmas cards

December 13, 2014

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. But after many hours spent doing online research and turning up no new information we stopped digging. About a Read More

Column: My encounter with a legend

November 15, 2014

Kristen Czaban is the managing editor of The Sheridan Press. I’m quite positive that looking back over my career 40 or 50 years from now, one of the highlights will be when I met Bob Woodward. For those who do not know him, he’s the journalist of Watergate fame. He and cohort Carl Bernstein covered Read More

Column: That time of year again; thinking Christmas gifts

November 7, 2014

It’s nearly that time of year again. It is time for all of us to hunt through shopping centers, catalogues and websites to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Yes, I know that Christmas isn’t all about presents. I also know that you shouldn’t need a special occasion to spoil the ones you Read More

Column: Celebrating each other’s quirks

November 1, 2014

In my entire life, I’ve only spent about six months living by myself. Growing up, I had my mother, father, brother and dog. In college, I always had a roommate — some good, some bad. After college, I moved to Sheridan and found a roommate so that I could afford rent. I got lucky; she Read More

Here’s to one more worthy nonprofit

October 24, 2014

It’s not very often you get to hear about businesses more worried about making the world better than they are about making a profit. It would have been easy — OK starting a business isn’t easy, but you know what I mean — for Emily Betzler to take the route that may have led to Read More

Column: Nobel awards give voice to the murmur

October 18, 2014

There has been a lot of talk over the last week or so about the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize. The winners made quite the stir. Malala Yousfzai, a 17-year-old Pakistani advocate for girls’ education, became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history. The Nobel Committee also took great care in choosing the Read More

Column: Books, pizza — two of my favorite things

October 11, 2014

Do you remember “Book It!”? It was that program in elementary school that rewarded you with pizza if you read a lot of books. Well, fellow reporter Hannah Sheely mentioned to me Thursday that Book It! has launched an alumni program in honor of its 30th anniversary. Awesome. I loved Book It! as a kid. Read More

Column: A personal challenge

October 4, 2014

This week a friend of mine sent me a TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert titled, “Success, failure and the drive to keep creating.” The talk focuses on what you do when you’re faced with either the blinding glare of success or the blinding glare of failure. It turns out that both endings fling you far Read More

Column: Collaboration over competition

September 20, 2014

Earlier this week a juvenile male stole a truck. He drove through town until law enforcement pulled him over. When the officer got out of his squad car, the juvenile man drove off, leading officers in a pursuit that traveled onto the interstate. Once on the interstate, the juvenile ended up on the wrong side Read More

Column: Gaining perspective over the years

September 13, 2014

Our education reporter, Alisa Brantz, started an interesting conversation in the newsroom the other day. She was talking about a group of kids at a local school district who didn’t know about the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. The kids have often heard the mantra “Never forget,” but were either too young Read More

Remembering my favorite titles

September 6, 2014

I’m not usually a fan of social media posts that call on you, and then others, to make lists. You know the ones I’m talking about. “List five words that describe our friendship,” or “List the top five most-played songs on your iPod.” If that wasn’t annoying enough, they then ask you to list 10 Read More

Landmark day for women

August 30, 2014

Whether or not you knew it, the 94th anniversary of a pretty important day just passed us by this week. On Aug. 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment — the one that granted U.S. women the right to vote — was signed into law. Voting is a right so many of us — and by us Read More

Taking the time, effort to give thanks

August 22, 2014

When is the last time you received a hand-written note from a friend? Whether it was a thank-you letter, an invitation to a gathering or just a way to catch up — can you remember? There is something very special about somebody taking the time to write, not just type, a note. The penmanship, the Read More
