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.

Natrona County International Air Port, formerlly the Casper Air Base, to receive environmental review

Twelve locations on the ground of the Natrona County International Airport, which started out as a United States Army Air Force base during World War Two, are being investigated by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for possible environmental contamination.  Sewage and waste disposal locations are the primary concerns.

Granted, such investigations may be warranted, but its odd to think that an investigation of these locations now, so long after they ceased being used, would be done.  More than anything, it might demonstrate our very much heightened modern sensitivity to environmental concerns.
