Being a rural hospitalist is a lonely life. When there is no cardiologist or pulmonologist or infectious disease specialist, you reach out, and hope someone is on the other end of the phone. Lately it has been a lot of voicemail. Twenty-three hospitals I called one night. Another COVID patie…

Once upon a time, back before WWII, workers emerging from factory floors and rising with blackened faces from mines would carry their lunch pails and their weary bodies out to stand in line before a paymaster’s window. There, he doled out their daily earnings. A few dollars in hand, many the…

During Thanksgiving it can be easy to get so caught up in preparations we forget to remember what the holiday is all about. For most of us, it’s easy to be thankful for the big moments such as marriage or the birth of a child. However, how many of us take the time to think about the small th…

How often do we hear those magical, first date stories ... “It was love at first sight,” “I knew this was the gal I’m gonna marry,” or “I realized she was my cousin, but the heart wants what the heart wants?”

Even though this editorial was initially written prior to the Friday state championship football game in Laramie, we wanted to give a shout-out to the success of our fall Cody High School sports teams.

When the Cody Police Department reached out to the Cody community in last month’s forum to see how it can improve, it seemed as if law enforcement and the public had differing views on what is important.

Who among us can rightfully claim to be a victim? You know, the guy like Sideshow Bob who always steps on the rake, banana peel or, worst-case, bear trap. Maybe more relatable, the mediocre golfer playing great when a near-perfect drive hits a tree and never comes down. It happens occasional…

It has been customary in recent years that when you know someone has served in the military you thank them for their service. This came into fashion about the time of 9/11. I think this was a way for American society to make up for the poor treatment of military veterans during the Vietnam W…

Meta.  That, as most of you have seen or heard, is Facebook’s new name.  With the name change, Mark Zuckerberg has shifted the conversation from the woes of Facebook, his company’s original platform, to a new endeavor.  It’s not just a game changer or a way of tamping down the heat springing…

Last month’s memorial for the 13 service members killed outside of the Kabul, Afghanistan airport in August was a fitting memorial to those service members who paid the ultimate price with their lives.

They called it a “pressed ham.” I call it rude and unfair to the old couple behind us. I was a 16-year-old rookie 3rd baseman visiting for the summer, unfamiliar with the local tradition these senior players presented to this sweet, elderly couple behind the bus. (I stereotype, but have you …

There are many well-intended efforts in life that go astray when they are appropriated by individuals who have different agendas than the original creator. In Brian Schroeder’s “Divided state of America” opinion column written on Oct. 28, Schroeder identifies many of these bastardized result…

Quarantined students in the Cody School District will have the opportunity to potentially return to school sooner than the typical 14 days of quarantine thanks in part to the district’s acquiring 1,000 vault tests from the U.S. Department of Health.

There is no question in our minds the Biden administration’s executive order requiring certain businesses to mandate vaccines or weekly testing would be federal overreach.

Is there any holiday more joyous or sacred than Halloween? Well, maybe a couple I suppose, but let’s not split hairs. When I was a quote, unquote, a young “whippersnapper,” in Pa. come Trick or Treat night, I’d make tracks from our rural farm country where at best you’ might get a few eggs o…

Study after study after study show that we humans don’t just lie, we often prefer to tell a lie over the truth and we’re actually and amazingly (or I found it so) more susceptible to believing a lie than the truth.

As the COVID-19 delta variant has a greater effect on children, one questions loomed in recent weeks with Halloween approaching: Is it safe to go trick-or-treating this year?

It would be gratifying if we could say we were shocked the Park County Republican Party made no announcements after committeeman Troy Bray from central Powell sent a vulgar email to State Sen. Tara Nethercott (R-Cheyenne). Even if he were admonished privately, failing to announce it publicly…
