Last summer, a jury rejected Rogelio Rodriguez Jr.’s arguments that state drug enforcement agents had the wrong man; last month, a judge rejected his request for probation.

If you were to query Wyomingites about the things they dislike about the federal government, you’d likely hear — over and over — a complaint that Washington, D.C., takes a “top-down” approach. It’s another way of saying that we don’t like it when politicians or bureaucrats thousands of miles away come up with ways to affect our area without involving us first. The objections to edicts from Washington are so commonplace here that you might call it a Wyoming mantra.

A 49-year-old Cowley woman was murdered on Thursday. Authorities say Carol J. Barnes of Cowley was stabbed to death by her ex-husband, Donald J. Crouse, at his apartment in Lovell.

Authorities have arrested a 48-year-old Casper area man on suspicion of murder, alleging he killed his former wife in Lovell on Thursday.

It should come as a surprise to no one that the National Park Service’s proposal to more than double the cost of a week-long pass to Yellowstone National Park has been ill-received by locals. No one welcomes the prospect of having to pay more taxes or fees for something — especially when that something is the opportunity to enjoy public lands.
