The monthly report from the Wyoming Department of Employment shows that Teton County enjoyed a sizable decrease in its jobless rate during April, but still remains in the double-digits.  According to the report, that rate last month was 11.2 percent, which still placed the county in the position of having the highest unemployment in the state for the month.  The report points out however that the county’s tourist season beginning in May typically spells an upturn in employment.  Statewide, the unemployment rate remained unchanged from March, holding steady at 5.3%.  The best place to find a job last month was Sublette County where 3.4% of the population was idled.   The national average for April was 7.7%.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck.
