The denigration of patriots Re: Parker column, Press, Mar. 4

March 6, 2015

Kathleen Parker, assuming the role of adjudicator of congressional pragmatism, excoriated some 50 conservative members of the Republican House majority, opined that “principles defended at the expense of pragmatic application is the business of priests.” So, officials whom the American people elected to stand up to an out-of-control president should just apply “pragmatism” and cave Read More

NSI Wolves show teamwork, pride Re: State 1A tournament

March 5, 2015

It is with great pleasure that we take the time to recognize one of your county’s finest programs. As avid activities and high school sports followers, we are blessed with getting to travel the state and watch our young men and women participate in a wide variety of contests that will hopefully help them as Read More

Congrats to coach Moser; not the only head coach Re: Press article, Feb. 23

March 4, 2015

We would like to congratulate Diane Moser as she retires from her coaching career at Tongue River High School. Her dedication and achievements for 41 years as head coach of the Lady Eagles is remarkable. The Press published a very nice write-up regarding her many years of service. It also stated that she was “the Read More

‘Concealed carry’ talks not realistic Re: Gun laws ineffective

March 3, 2015

With the recent discussion in the Legislature about “concealed carry” at the University of Wyoming, let’s remember past events. Did the “gun-free school” signs prevent the carnage at Columbine, Virgina Tech or Sandy Hook? No. They served to exacerbate the slaughter. The signs ensured the murder victims would be unarmed and helpless. How many murderers, Read More

When is a contract not a contract? Re: City ambulance services

The city of Sheridan entered into a contract with the Sheridan firefighters union and apparently hasn’t been living up to the agreement. Even the (appointed, not elected) senator has joined the battle from Cheyenne with his phony arbitration bill. The arbitrator who is supposed to be neutral can be anybody that the group chooses, even Read More

Letter: Failure of Great Lakes result of service

February 27, 2015

Re: Surveys needed A Feb. 24 article in The Sheridan Press read, “Great Lakes, the only airline serving Sheridan, is losing money on the flights, adding the airport won’t reach the 10,000-passenger mark this year.” If Great Lakes will not reach the 10,000 mark (approximately 14 departures and 14 returns per day), I contend this Read More

Letter: No more knee-jerk reactions

Re: Second Amendment rights, HB114 I think that the only way to ensure the safety of people in this great state of Wyoming is to quit taking away our constitutional rights. Knee-jerk response to emotionally charged issues such as school shootings is claiming our rights at an alarming rate. Any citizen who has gone through Read More

Letter: Cities ripe for history, recreation tourism

February 21, 2015

Cities ripe for history, recreation tourism Re: Advertise, promote I read that grant funds are now available for a new air carrier for the city. I do hope that we can get a very reliable carrier for this area, and have more than one flight in and out a day. The Chamber of Commerce should Read More

Predators, livestock, grazing on public land

February 20, 2015

Re: Respect mountain water Killing predators is the saddest aspect of grazing livestock in this area. The predators are noble, exquisite creatures, unlike the over-bred livestock that is often smeared with its own excrement polluting our watershed.  The mountain water deserves more respect.  It is a treasure, as are the predators. At the top of Read More

Illegal immigrants, Social Security cards

Re: Cole letter, Press, Feb. 18 Charles Cole’s letter was well-written and to the point. The punch line was his final paragraph: What are principled representatives in Congress to do regarding the latest presidential “memo” regarding the Social Security numbers for illegal immigrants? Ann Coulter describes it best. “If the Republican majority in both houses Read More

Letter: 17,600 Wyomingites versus 19 senators

February 19, 2015

17,600 Wyomingites versus 19 senators Re: Medicaid expansion There are more than 17,600 Wyoming citizens without health insurance. I’m not sure if I read it right, but it was only 19 state senators who voted against the Medicaid expansion bill. To state Sen. Charlie Scott: we need some numbers from you. Such as how many of Read More

Letter: ‘Perpetual’ war and its expectations

‘Perpetual’ war and its expectations Re: Sheridan Peacemakers American citizens are responsible for their government’s decisions and for holding it accountable.  Because war is so onerous and consequential, some of us have been holding peace vigils to protest the decision for war and to urge peace. These vigils are sometimes challenged by veterans who take Read More

Letter: Goose-stepping Democrats,“left” media in cahoots

February 18, 2015

Goose-stepping Democrats,“left” media in cahoots Re: Possible DHS shutdown Here we go again! On cue, the national “news” media, including even a few conservatives like George Will, are already blaming the Republican Congress for an impending shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security. The partial government shutdown of 2013 was an effort by principled conservatives Read More

Letter: “Crony capitalism;” voters said no in ‘08

February 17, 2015

Re: City shops for leader The city of Sheridan is advertising for a financial and administrative director. The job description for the position states the director will assume management for all administrative departments. The director will be responsible for city finances, purchasing, budget, council agenda, IT services (established IT contracts and IT priorities). The director Read More

Letter: Obama, Iran, Muslims, ISIS, humility, terrorism

February 11, 2015

Obama, Iran, Muslims, ISIS, humility, terrorism Re: National Prayer Breakfast President Obama at the annual prayer breakfast (Feb. 5) compared what is happening with ISIS today to the Crusades (800 years ago) and the Inquisition (400 years ago). He seems more concerned with getting a deal with Iran than protecting our country from terrorists. Obama Read More

Letter: Cyclists, walkers, joggers:

February 10, 2015

Cyclists, walkers, joggers: Be smart and be seen I would like to remind cyclists, walkers and joggers to wear light, bright, reflective clothing. I could have easily had a collision recently with a cyclist dressed in solid black from helmet to toe and riding a dark bike. Be smart and be seen. Cathy Storm Sheridan

Letter: More business ‘deaths’ impact Obama’s ‘recovery’

More business ‘deaths’ impact Obama’s ‘recovery’ Re: State of the Union “truths” In his State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama said that the economy had recovered and it’s time to “turn the page.”  His allies in the national “news” media continue to trumpet the low 5.7 percent unemployment rate.  However, this is the U-3 Read More

Letter: Vaccinations, circumstances

February 5, 2015

Vaccinations, circumstances The parents’ decision of whether or not to vaccinate (their children) can maybe be decided by considering the situation that would exist if vaccines were never available. Richard Kuzara Sheridan

Letter: Kinskey against firefighters, poor

Kinskey against firefighters, poor Re: Sheridan Press, Jan. 27 Will wonders never cease? In the aftermath of many controversial events in the life of Sheridan County politics, our new (state) senator, Dave Kinskey (appointed, and not elected by the people), comes out strongly against our Sheridan Fire Dept. heroes and against the needy people of Wyoming. Read More

Letter: Distasteful’ coverage is unnecessary

Distasteful’ coverage is unnecessary Re: Clemens letter, Press, Jan. 31 To Susan Clemens, I extend my heartfelt sympathy for your tragic loss compounded by the distasteful coverage by The Press. This is not the first time The Press has unnecessarily sensationalized a local tragedy at the expense of family and friends. If you are waiting for Read More

Letter: Legislators, lemmings, and a free market

February 4, 2015

Legislators, lemmings, and a free market Re: Wyoming Medicaid expansion One popular misconception about lemmings is that they mindlessly run off cliffs to their deaths, presumably following a leader with a poor sense of direction.  Lemmings can swim, but do drown when they set out for new habitat lacking the physical capacity to cross a body Read More

Letter: ‘No place for public’ with state agencies

February 3, 2015

‘No place for public’ with state agencies Re: Land rules, conflicts House Bill 209, the transfer of federal lands that cleared the House Judiciary Committee, sets Dec. 31, 2017, as the day the federal government shall extinguish title to all public lands. The day that Wyoming would receive that title would be day the public loses Read More

Letter: Recycling beneficial nationally, locally

January 31, 2015

Recycling beneficial nationally, locally Re: Environment, employment Currently less than 35 percent of households and less than 10 percent of businesses in the U.S. recycle.  Improving and increasing recycling is one of the greatest opportunities for our environment, our natural resources, and our economy. If U.S. recycling levels can reach 75 percent, it will be Read More

Letter: ‘Appointed’ Sen. Kinskey’s arbitration legislation

‘Appointed’ Sen. Kinskey’s arbitration legislation Re: Press, Jan. 27 I take exception to the word “firefighter” in the headline. Rather, “Kinskey Sponsors an Arbitration Bill” would be more accurate. Kinskey, as mayor, could not negotiate with the city firefighters for nine years. The city spent funds to arbitrate six times. Sen. Kinskey wants to eliminate Read More

Letter: Press coverage hurtful

Press coverage hurtful Re: Clemens death I must commend you on your bold reporting. My daughter was killed on Jan. 16. You published the article in the Press. I get that. She had a DUI on Jan. 11, which you printed in the report. I get that as well. What I do not get is Read More
