Locals Honored at Governor’s Business Forum

Clarene

The Wyoming Business Hall of Fame inducted its inaugural group of business leaders in the state which included Jackson’s Clarene Law during the 31st annual Governor’s Business Forum that just concluded in Cheyenne yesterday.  Wyoming Business Council CEO Bob Jensen called the inductees the model forgood business practice in the state.  It sets the stage for people to see an example of what ethical business is like in Wyoming.  He said these are, “people that have contributed so much to the state through their efforts in their own businesses.” Law was numbered with such late business leaders as James Cash Penney who founded JC Penney Department Stores, Homer Scott who founded First Interstate Bank, and “Dave” True of True Oil Company.  Earlier in the evening Ruth Ann Petroff and Jackson’s Snake River Roasters were honored as a Wyoming Success Story. Petroff told the state’s business leaders that the business is necessarily a small one since it is impossible to replicate on a large scale since roasting changes from day-to-day due to weather, atmospheric pressure and what condition the beans are in. She says for all coffees, the flavor starts degrading after about two weeks.  Consequently, for specialty high-end coffees, they try to roast to order and work closely with consumers to use them promptly in order to bring out its highest quality.  Petroff told the group she hopes to double or triple the company size in the next ten years.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
