Letter: Signs and solutions

April 29, 2015

Re: Bullying Sir Winston Churchill once was quoted, “For every one man that digs at the root of a problem, there are 100 that whack at the leaves.” As a guidance counselor who works with teenagers, this quote would be fitting if one considered the “problem” to be bullying. Bullying is a horrific act that Read More

Letter: FAB Conference was ‘fabulous’

April 28, 2015

Re: April 17 at SC I would like to thank The Sheridan Press and Sheridan College and all of the sponsors for the wonderful FAB (For. About. By.) Women’s Conference held April 17 at Sheridan College. It was fabulous! The keynote speaker, Karen McNenny, was one of the best speakers I have ever heard. The Read More

Letter: Moral obligation not to waste food

Re: Earth Day film On Earth Day, a special documentary aired, “Just Eat It.” It revealed that we waste 40 percent of all food while 15 percent of our people don’t get enough to eat. The waste begins in the field where unsuited product is left behind. The product is culled again in packing — Read More

Letter: Protecting our children through air quality action

April 24, 2015

Protecting our children through air quality action Re: Monitoring, inspections Wyoming is a place where there should be plenty of fresh air and sunshine. But unfortunately, poor air quality in our state is a true concern. Recess is cancelled for school kids in Pinedale on unhealthy “ozone action days.” A report by the Wyoming Department Read More

Letter: Dangerous intersection

Dangerous intersection Re: Wyoming, Sheridan Avenues The intersection at Sheridan Avenue and Wyoming Avenue is an accident waiting to happen. The turn lanes for north and south Wyoming are designed wrong and are going to cause a head-on collision. I hope the city addresses this situation as soon as possible. Dwight Thompson Sheridan

Letter: Press request reasonable

April 21, 2015

Re: Rocky Mountain Ambulance reports The April 14 Press article on the RMA contract reported that Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens does not keep the RMA end-of-month ambulance call reports. The end-of-month reports are kept by RMA, by Sheridan County and the state EMS office. The reports are part of Wyoming Trauma Reporting and are Read More

Letter: SHS project embodies community commitment

April 16, 2015

Re: Osborns, legacy leadership The groundbreaking for the locker room project at Sheridan High School was appropriately ceremonial, but I wish to highlight a more meaningful exchange that took place that afternoon. I would like to extend kudos to Casey Osborn of Emit Technologies for seizing what presented itself as a teachable moment for the Read More

Letter: Sen. Barrasso holds health of country, Wyoming foremost, Re. Mueller letter, Press, April 11

April 14, 2015

Mr. Mueller’s opinion seems to be shaped by Mother Jones magazine, but be that as it may, it would appear his criticism of Sen. John Barrasso’s participation in the now famous “Letter to the Mullahs” was pretty much nullified by George Will’s column, the political cartoon on the same page, and what we know now Read More

Letter: Class warfare among the rich, Re: Inheritance taxes

HR 1105, the Death Tax Repeal Act of 2015, is likely to come to the floor this month. Its promoters’ argue that inheritance taxes hurt small business and family farms. They are really disingenuous. They should address that issue rather than repealing a tax intended to abolish government by an economic elite and to promote Read More

Letter: Vote Barrasso out; sellout to lobbyists

April 10, 2015

Vote Barrasso out; sellout to lobbyists Re: Israel, big pharma It seems that Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming has lost sight of his obligations to his citizens. He is spending more time creating an active alliance against President Obama and less time working as a U.S. senator effectively representing the people he was elected to Read More

Letter: WPA endorses reopening of state ACLU office

Re: Open records, public documents It was with some concern that we, the board of directors for the Wyoming Press Association, read recently of the American Civil Liberties Union’s decision to close its Wyoming office. Over the years, the ACLU and its Wyoming staff have been crucial in the ongoing effort to maintain government transparency. Read More

Letter: ‘Objective’ left media reinforces tomfoolery

April 8, 2015

Re: Obama, Kerry, Iran deal, Syria;  unemployment, zero growth, Benghazi Hardly a surprise that the vaunted January-February job numbers have been revised significantly downward. There are now over 93 million Americans not working, among whom are over 12 million African-Americans and over 56 million women. I guess the “burgeoning economy” described in the left media Read More

Letter: ‘Do the right thing,’ leadership, transparency, Re: Remembering John Patton

April 7, 2015

Sheridan and Wyoming has lost a rare public servant in John Patton. As a Wyoming journalist, I have had more than my share of time to observe those elected to represent us in this grand experiment called “democracy.” The service is difficult and challenges those who attempt it. Most officials strive to put aside their Read More

Quotes re: Rep. John Patton’s death

“John Patton was a wonderful Wyoming man and a thoughtful, hard-working legislator who set a positive example for his colleagues. He loved Wyoming and it showed in his service. I was not at all surprised to find him still working during a recent visit at the hospital. We are sorry to lose a friend and Read More

Letter: ‘Freedoms’ being redefined in Indiana

April 3, 2015

‘Freedoms’ being redefined in Indiana Re: Civil, business, gay rights Is this really a debate about religious freedom or just freedom itself? After all, isn’t America the home of the free and the brave? Or has it become a nation where the brave are branded as dangerous bigots and our freedoms are eroded daily? For several Read More

Letter: Parenting, treatment essential in remedies, Re: Pot access in Colorado

Because of our proximity to Colorado, Wyoming residents presently have a heightened awareness as to the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana. As with any substance, there are many concerns regarding the potential abuse of marijuana, regardless of whether it is legal, decriminalized or otherwise. But it is imperative we don’t lose sight of substances Read More

Letter: Trans-Pacific Partnership harmful too, Re: trade agreements

March 31, 2015

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will be just as harmful to the world as NAFTA, the North American Trade Agreement. It will destroy the rights of actual people to benefit international corporations involved in trade. It will protect the international corporation’s monopolistic rights while destroying national sovereignty. It is opposed by hundreds of organizations including human Read More

Letter: Grateful parent

March 27, 2015

Grateful parent Re: Proud of Arvada-Clearmont schools This week’s Arvada-Clearmont Spring Concert featuring Basque Heritage was a pure delight. I commend Mrs. Olson, the K-12 music teacher for Sheridan County School District 3, for her ability to plan a unique, lively and rich musical and dance experience for our students. My heart swelled to see Read More

Letter: Misinformation in radio report, Re: Rental car companies at airport staying open

As most know, changes are happening at the Sheridan County Airport, notably the final departure of Great Lakes Airlines on March 31. Clarification of a related article written by Pat Blair, which appeared on a local online media website March 17 is needed as it contains a misleading statement. It was written that airport manager Read More

Letter: Commander in chief totally out of line

March 26, 2015

Re: Senators disrespect commander in chief, Donna Robbins letter “It is both disappointing and shocking that a former constitutional law professor (President Obama) thinks he can avoid the constitutional checks and balances on the branches of government on a technicality, especially when it involves one of the most significant foreign policy issues of our time.” Read More

Letter: Heed the lessons of the past

March 24, 2015

Heed the lessons of the past Re: Sowell column, March 23 I sincerely hope that my fellow Sheridan Press readers read Thomas Sowell’s column in Saturday’s edition. He made an excellent case for heeding the lessons of the past in approaching today’s dangers. Citing Winston Churchill’s famous warnings about the existential threat Adolf Hitler posed Read More

Unexpected mentors

March 20, 2015

I’ve been to a lot of conferences. Wyoming Press Association, Inland Press Association, women’s conferences, sports conferences — a lot of things are different about each event, but one things is consistent. At each of those conferences, at least one speaker talks about the importance of finding a mentor. Even for the FAB (For. About. Read More

Letter: Secret ballots a disservice to voters

Secret ballots a disservice to voters Re: Council decision on liquor license After sitting through the Sheridan City Council Meeting on March 15, I was so disappointed that the Council made its decision pertaining to the available retail liquor license under a series of secret ballots. In today’s political environment nationwide, I was astounded that our Read More

Letter: White House ‘nincompoops’ keep informed via TV

Thank heavens for television, or the White House would be in the dark about world affairs. Never in this history of the Republic have we had such a motley lot of petty nincompoops steering the ship of state. There are not enough adjectives to describe contempt many have for this administration. With the Rev. Al Read More

Letter: Go Cowboys!, Re: Lack of UW coverage

March 19, 2015

I realize that you have a small space to devote to sports and that local sports take precedence, but Sheridan is a Wyoming town and many of the residents have attended the University of Wyoming or their children have. I find that the Press’ coverage of the University of Wyoming basketball has been spotty at Read More
