How To Use This Site

This blog was updated on a daily basis for about two years, with those daily entries ceasing on December 31, 2013. The blog is still active, however, and we hope that people stopping in, who find something lacking, will add to the daily entries.

The blog still receives new posts as well, but now it receives them on items of Wyoming history. That has always been a feature of the blog, but Wyoming's history is rich and there are many items that are not fully covered here, if covered at all. Over time, we hope to remedy that.

You can obtain an entire month's listings by hitting on the appropriate month below, or an individual day by hitting on that calendar date.

We hope you enjoy this site.

Wyoming History in the Making: 2014 Legislature now likely to go into special session.

It now appears to be a near certainty that the Legislature shall convene a special session, immediately following the termination of the budget session, this year.

All special sessions are historic events.  This one may be particularly notable as it arises in such unusual circumstances.  The expressed goal of the special session, should it occur, would be to pass new legislation to fix the bill that resulted in changes to the state's education department, and more specifically to the role of the elected head of that department.  The Supreme Court found the statute passed last year to be unconstitutional and the Governor's office has authorized a petition for a rehearing.  The Legislature now seems disinclined to wait for the results of the rehearing.  Whether the Legislature will also consider a bill of impeachment for Cindy Hill remains an open question.
