  • Uneventful rally

    Aug 17, 2023

    The Annual Hulett rally has come and gone again and the memory from this one may be the wet, cool weather. With temperatures in the 70s and low 80s and chances of rain almost every day, bikers may have stayed closer to Sturgis for this rally. Local businesses were definitely busy building up to Wednesday and some vendors said they actually sold more on Tuesday rather than Wednesday.

    Sarah Pridgeon|Aug 17, 2023

"I spent 36 years in the retirement system but I had been a volunteer before I became a paid guy," Harrison says. Retirement didn't stick – after a three-year vacation, Harrison found himself looking for a new challenge. "You know, there's a l...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Aug 17, 2023

    Dear Editor, To the citizens of Crook County: in 2022 the Legislature passed a bill mandating training for boards and elected officials. The intent was probably good, however there is a clause that enables removal of persons that don’t comply. The training (possibly indoctrination) is 8 hours!!! Very few people have the time to accomplish this!! Some have been threatened with removal. If you have, please let me know right away. I personally will not comply for several reasons. We offer training for our boards and don’t need the hea...

    Aug 17, 2023

    With human cases in nearby states and a higher-than-usual number of mosquito pools within Wyoming testing positive for West Nile virus, the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) wants people to remember to protect themselves from mosquito bites. “Wyoming’s reported human West Nile virus case numbers have been quite low the past several years,” Courtney Tillman, epidemiologist with WDH, said. “But with more positive mosquito pools being reported this summer than we have seen in nearly 10 years and cases popping up in neighbor states, a reminde...
