Unemployment Creeps Up

unemployment

Unemployment in Teton County began creeping up again last month with the approach of the end of winter season, although that level was well below the same month last year.  The increase in March only amounted to a tenth of a percent, but is likely to increase more before the summer tourist season brings with it the need to increase staffs again.  Elsewhere in the state, Lincoln County saw the highest jobless rate at 7.9% while Sublette County enjoyed the lowest at 4.0%.  Teton County’s 5.8% is comfortably below the national unemployment average of 7.6%, but still surpassed the state average of 4.9%.  Last year, Teton County posted a jobless rate in March of 7.0%.

    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
  • Change gears on the outdoor activities - July 17, 2014
    Next week’s the last full week in July, and if you live anywhere near Cheyenne, that means Cheyenne Frontier Days. It actually starts tomorrow.
