It’s snowpack forecast season, and trained eyes find the published reports in the Tribune to gauge the estimated runoff potential in area drainages. Agricultural fortunes are, of course, a … more
I celebrated by buying my first resident fishing license, saving about $80 off the price of a nonresident license. Soon I’ll be applying for hunting licenses. It takes 365 days to become a Wyoming resident. I understand the reasons. I can’t … more
Maybe that’s why I enjoy seeing Roseanne back on TV on Tuesday nights. When Roseanne was originally on ABC from 1988 to 1997, it was one of the most popular shows on TV, ranking in the top five shows its first six seasons on the air and … more
If you haven’t heard, Taylor Swift abandoned her neutrality on politics over the weekend and announced to the world on Instagram that she was an ultra-liberal, left-wing, Hillary Clinton-loving … more
When I left southeast Missouri three years ago — first to move to Nebraska and later here to Powell — I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be getting home for Thanksgiving that … more
At 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 12, wide awake in the international wing of the London Gatwick airport, I received a message from Matthew Taggart. “I’m coming up to Cody at the end of the month … more
“I’m here. Are you close?” asked Destin Harrell, a BLM biologist in the Cody field office. I wasn’t. Until that moment I was snug in my bed. “I’ll be there soon,” I said. In a panic, I must have looked and sounded like a mad … more
How far is too far when it comes to punishing people for making inappropriate remarks? We might have gotten our answer on Friday, when Lilly Diabetes pulled its sponsorship of Conor Daly’s … more
“You know something, Virginia?” my mom asks, as we sit together on the leather couch, Sugar Bear snuggled between us, fingers curled around mugs of morning-after-Christmas coffee. “Hmmm?” I ask, balancing my cup between crisscrossed legs, … more
You share in a whole new set of challenges, triumphs and failures together, as well — experiences that expedite and intensify the tightness of your relationships exponentially. In a month’s time, you find you’ve created more unforgettable … more
I like to begin spiritually related columns with a couple of my late father Alfred’s favorite church jokes that he’d tell our pastor, much to mom’s scowling chagrin. Stop me if … more
You may already know the bittersweet, inspirational love story that brought my big brother (I’m the youngest, ya know), Paul, and Jane Miller together. Cancer stole both their happy marriages to the tune of 81 combined years, so in a backhanded … more
