Training Available For Health Care

workforce

Wyoming workers seeking careers in health care received a tremendous boost as the result of a federal grant awarded to the Department of Workforce Services worth nearly $5 million. The grant, which was awarded through a competitive process, was announced by the U.S. Labor Secretary Wednesday.  It will allow training of more than 14-hundred Wyoming workers over the next four years in occupations such as Registered Nurse, Medical Records Technician, Health Information Technician and Dental Assistant.  Training will target low-income single mothers with children at home, Native Americans, veterans and eligible spouses, unemployed workers, low-skilled workers, and those requiring training/education to advance into the health care field. The program is being administered in collaboration with two other lead partners: Central Wyoming College and CLIMB Wyoming.  Several health care employers and other educational institutions are also providing services including St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson.

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 […]
