With the top spot in the conference on the line, the Northwest Trappers rallied past Laramie County last week and then beat Eastern Wyoming for another hard-earned win.

About a year from now, all sorts of “experts” will write books trying to explain the election of 2016 to us.

There is an election coming up.

I haven’t mentioned this election in this space since the middle of July, so some of you may have wondered if I had forgotten about Hillary and The Donald. Some of you may actually have been celebrating that omission, either because you don’t want to think about the election or because you can guess what I might say and don’t want to hear it.

As if we didn’t have enough issues bouncing us around these days, now we have a flag problem.
