Column: Always a city girl?

May 1, 2015

I’ve lived in Sheridan for nearly seven years now. Initially, when I moved here in 2008, I swore up and down I would only be here for one year. I had just graduated from Northwestern University (Go ‘Cats!) and just needed some more work experience before I could move up to a bigger newspaper. Those Read More

Column: Itching for dirt under my nails

April 25, 2015

Spring has sprung — mostly — and I’m all of a sudden eager to get into my garden and get some dirt under my fingernails. For the last several years, my husband and I have utilized a plot at one of the community gardens in town. We pay our $40 and we get to use Read More

Building each other up

April 18, 2015

Today, I’m probably taking a minute to relax and breathe a little bit now that the FAB (For. About. By.) Women’s Conference has ended for 2015. Anyone who tells you planning an event is easy is fooling you. I’m not sure I could have done it without the support of the committee of women who Read More

When it comes in threes

April 10, 2015

There is an urban legend of sorts that death always comes in threes. I’ve never believed it or seen it happen, though. Yes, I’ve known people who have died. But their deaths were not followed directly by the deaths of other friends or loved ones. So, I never believed the urban legend to be true. Read More

Column: Spring sports fever

April 3, 2015

While most sports fans are combing their TVs for coverage of the NCAA tournaments, I’m not. Don’t get me wrong. I like basketball and I’ll watch a game here and there. But, this time of year my focus is elsewhere in the sports world — college softball. I don’t know what it is about this Read More

Column: Sweaty palms, turning stomach

March 27, 2015

I’ve always slightly dreaded any need for publicly speaking in front of large groups. I do it anyway, and I get over it, but it always makes me nervous. My palms get sweaty, my stomach turns a little and my thoughts tend to get a little jumbled. So when I was invited to be a Read More

Why innovating is never easy

March 13, 2015

A colleague recently introduced me to Clay Christensen and his concept of “disruptive innovation.” The phrase is a bit of a buzzword these days, appearing in Forbes, The Seattle Times, The Economist and even leading to events like a “festival of disruption.” For those of you who don’t know him, just as I didn’t, Christensen Read More

Exciting prospects on the horizon

March 7, 2015

There is a lot of buzz in the newsroom these last couple of weeks. Or at least there is a buzz in my office. We have the most staff we’ve had in quite some time and we’re all excited about what this means in terms of what we can do. Part of this adventure will Read More

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
