As summer draws to a close, we applaud the well-organized and managed construction project to widen U.S. Highway 14-A east of Cody to five lanes — two lanes going each direction, with a turning lane in the middle.
The $9. 6 million project is the last of 11 projects the Wyoming Department of Transportation has planned and overseen since 2001 to widen the highway between Powell and Cody at a total cost of nearly $66.4 million, making it easier, faster and safer to travel between the two cities.

Little Byron Brown has deep-blue eyes that mirror his pleasant disposition. But behind those beautiful eyes lurks a tumor that threatens the 21-month-old’s eyesight.
Fortunately, the tumor was found fairly early, and new medical technology makes it possible for his doctor, a specialist, to target chemotherapy directly to the tumor. There’s a good chance that Byron’s cancer will be cured.
