During his visit to Jackson this week, Wyoming’s US Senator John Barrasso said the value of the land owned by the State of Wyoming inside Grand Teton National Park that is being sold to the Department of Interior is increasing.  Barrasso says the state’s Washington delegation has been working with Governor Mead on trying to find a way to consummate the second half of the deal to sell the land.  However, he says as the negotiations drag on, the value of that land continues to appreciate.  He says things always take longer than they should in Washington, so the question now is, ‘What’s the value of that land at this time?’  Says Barrasso: “The value continues to go up in my opinion, so that Washington I don’t think should not just rely on the good people of Wyoming to say, ‘OK, you know that old price applies.” In a recent news conference, Governor Mead also pointed out that the negotiations cannot drag on indefinitely. He says the issue has been pending for long enough and he says he believes there is some urgency to settling the deal if it is going to be done at all.

    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 […]

    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
