USA-TORNADOES/

In response to the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead is joining an effort to raise money to support victims of the natural disaster and help Oklahoma rebuild. Jackson Hole residents Foster and Lynn Friess have committed to donate $1 million in challenging all 50 Governors to raise a matching million dollars by working with citizens in their respective states to raise $20,000 per state. In response, Governor Mead has asked the citizens of Wyoming to join in the effort to help the citizens of Moore, Oklahoma rebuild their lives.  The National Christian Foundation, working with the Salvation Army and the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City, has agreed to accept donations, make distributions free of charge and deliver donations to Moore. The money will be used to restore local parks and playgrounds at the schools, and for gift cards to local stores, which people can use to purchase toiletries, bedding and kitchen utensils.  Donations should note “Governors’ Match” to qualify for the Friess match.

    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
