Wyoming’s employment picture is looking a little brighter as reported Friday by the Wyoming’s Department of Workforce Services in their quarterly census of employment and wages.  Total unemployment insurance covered payroll in Wyoming increased by $215.8 million in the first quarter of 2012 and employment rose by 6,470 jobs while average weekly wage increased by 5.2%.  Here in Teton County, however, wages actually only grew by 1.9%.   The state’s report says that job growth in first quarter was higher than its five-year average; 2.5% compared with 3/10%.  Those figures were reflected in Teton County’s employment picture as well.  Total wages and average weekly wage also grew faster than their five year averages.  However, the department points out that despite the recent growth, overall employment remains approximately 6,200 jobs, or 2.2% below its first quarter 2008 level. In other words, the state has yet to recoup all the job losses of 2009 and 2010.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
