A State Cookie?

chocolate chip cookies

You know it had to happen.  Wyoming has a state bird – the Western Meadowlark, it has a state flower – the Indian Paintbrush, it has a state tree – the Plains Cottonwood, it even has a state dinosaur – the Triceratops.  It was only a matter of time before a bill would be introduced to establish an official state……cookie. The bill is enough to make even the Keebler Elves proud.  Sponsored by Laramie County Representatives Lee Filer and Kenneth Esquibel, and Senator John Hastert, the bill seeks to establish the chocolate chip cookie as the official cookie of Wyoming.  Filer explains that students at Goins Elementary School in Cheyenne wanted to know how a bill becomes law.  With the cookie bill, he says, “The kids will learn how to lobby and testify in committee – which is great to teach them young so they have a better understanding of the process.”  But why a chocolate chip cookie?  Filer explains the students learned from local cookie makers that the chocolate chip cookie is their biggest seller.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    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.
