Wyoming Adopts Lottery Logo

The Wyoming Lottery Commission yesterday unveiled the logo that will be used for Wyoming’s lottery sales.  In addition to the words “WyoLotto” emblazoned across the middle of it, it depicts a jackalope reaching for a star.  Lottery Commission Chief Executive Officer Jon Clontz says he believes it is an image that relates very well to Wyoming.  He says he believes the logo is very unique but also relates in a very familiar way to people in Wyoming.  He says, “They’ll see it that’s within that Wyoming culture, but also (you know) it’s different than the other icons and things that you see representing Wyoming.” While tickets won’t be going on sale right away, Clontz says that time is approaching soon.  Once the lottery participation begins here, state law requires that the first $6-million of the revenue the state derives from the lottery will be distributed to cities, towns and counties based on Wyoming’s tax formula.  Additional earning will be placed in the state’s permanent land fund’s common school account.

  • 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 […]
  • Enzi Opens Campaign HQ in Cheyenne - April 17, 2014
    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • 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 […]
