    More than two dozen Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to re-engage in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. The 25 GOP lawmakers sent a letter to Trump on Friday saying they support his recent comments that he may consider U.S. participation if the 11-nation Asia-Pacific pact is improved.

    Many people in the gun culture have asked why gun manufacturers would stay in states that are consistently attacking Second Amendment rights. States such as New York and California.Weatherby, Inc. is making the move. The announcement was made at the Shot Show. From the press release email: Firearms manufacturer Weatherby, Inc., is relocating its manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters from California to Sheridan, Wyoming, company officials announced today from SHOT Show in Las Vegas, the world’s largest annual shooting, hunting and firearms industry trade show. The move is expected to create 70 to 90 jobs and more than $5...

    Since Donald Trump's election, environmental zealots have mostly had a very rough two weeks — and Donald Trump has had nothing to do with any of it. Two developments they consider really bad (meaning good for the rest of us) far outweigh the single item they're celebrating. First, in Wyoming, just two days after the election, their "fracking is bad" Exhibit A in Pavillion, Wyoming was completely discredited. Second, in Texas this week, a huge oil discovery was reported — so big and unprecedented that the only commenter at the Associated Press's coverage of the story at the Washington Post...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Firearms manufacturer Weatherby Inc. is relocating its manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters from California to Wyoming, marking another catch by Wyoming of a company abandoning a state that isn’t as gun friendly. Weatherby’s move to Sheridan is expected to create 70 to 90 jobs and more than $5 million in annual payroll over the next five years.

    Republican establishment-types in the House, as well as congressional Democrats, say they are close to finalizing a bipartisan amnesty plan for as many as 3.5 million illegal aliens. In a comment to the Hill, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) said a group of House Republicans and Democrats were swiftly crafting an amnesty to push for passage either this week or at the beginning of the new year. “We’ve had very good meetings here with the Problem Solvers Caucus — [Rep.] Will Hurd [R-Texas] has been working on a potential compromise with some Democrats as well, so we could see something as...

    Sen. John Barrasso said Wednesday there will be plenty of time to tackle immigration reform, including a new policy for children brought to the U.S. illegally, early in 2018. “The deadline that President Trump has set is actually March and so there’s time to do that,” Mr. Barrasso, Wyoming Republican, said on Fox News. “There are discussions. But for me, I’m going to focus on border security, enforcement and ending chain migration.” Mr. Trump announced the end of DACA — an Obama-era policy that allowed people brought to the U.S. illegally as children to stay — and asked Congress to...

    “Watch your step. It’s steep on the way down.” There’s something unnerving about climbing down a set of narrow stairs and into a metal pod buried on a rural plot of Wyoming ranch land — bad things happen in buried bunkers, don’t you know — and when coupled with the darkness of the room below, it feels bit like you’re stepping to your doom. “There’s nothing to be scared of. You’re safe down here,” Dylan* said, stifling a laugh. The 35-year-old father of two has spent the last few years preparing for disaster, and the addition of this pre-fabbed steel...

    Planned Parenthood loses 27 more facilities in 2017 and is down to 597 in the US. Prior to 2002, there was no easy way of verifying exactly how many Planned Parenthood medical facilities existed in the United States. Planned Parenthood published a number every year and we had to believe its number. But, by 2002, the network of STOPP contacts across the United States had grown so much that we could verify a lot of PP’s claims. In addition, the Internet had become very useful and helped us track everything. As a result, we began doing an annual survey of...

John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said, hailing the accomplishment.

Miguel Martinez faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. If found guilty, Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison. Martinez’s public defender, Tracy Hucke, said at a previous hearing that her client identifies as a woman and uses the name Michelle.

    Parents are upset about politics’ pervasiveness in the classroom. One of the answers a Jackson Hole High School English teacher gave her students on a multiple choice quiz Thursday was “A) He was shooting at Trump.” Teton County School District No. 1 confirmed the answer was on a quiz administered online by their secure learning management system. The quiz has since been taken down. Jim McCollum was surprised when his son Rylee McCollum, a junior, came home and showed him a screenshot of the online test. "I had to read it two times," McCollum said. "I was like, 'Are you...

"I tried to help the best I could." Eric Wanchisen, 45, said the crash occurred in front of the residence of an emergency room doctor who was home. "What's the odds she was home? She had them all assessed before the ambulance came," Wanchisen said. Multiple neighbors credited her with saving the life of a baby who was in a stroller that was hit. Wanchisen said all the...

    The folks who run the Town Hall in Jackson, Wyoming proudly displayed a portrait of President Obama during his terms in office. But they won’t be extending the same respect to President Trump. Mayor Pete Muldoon removed portraits of President Trump and Vice President Pence – replacing them with a portrait of Chief Washakie, a renowned Native American warrior. The mayor told me in a lengthy email that he stands by his decision – even though he acknowledged Trump “won the election under the rules we have in place.” “Dictators like Joseph Stalin required their portraits to be displayed...

    CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The only Planned Parenthood in the state of Wyoming is closing down. Planned Parenthood's Casper location confirmed Tuesday it will close this summer after more than 40 years of operation because of financial reasons. ""This is a challenging decision," said Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains official Adrienne Mansanares. The Casper location, which opened in 1975, serves around 500 patients per year, the Casper Star-Tribune reported ( Mansanares said most Wyoming patients who receive care from Planned Parenthood do so at the organization's Fort Collins location in Colorado.

    Gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan could find themselves in the crosshairs of hunters as soon as this fall. A ruling is expected soon from the same appeals court that recently lifted protections for wolves in Wyoming. Officials say that whether Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan can hold wolf seasons this fall would depend in part on how soon the court rules. Meanwhile, wolf-hunting supporters in Congress aren't giving up even though a Minnesota representative was instrumental in killing an effort that would have allowed the three Midwest states to resume wolf hunting.

    In a letter dated April 21 and addressed to the Armenian National Committee of America Western Region (ANCA-WR), Wyoming Governor Matthew H.

    Advocates of abolishing the $1 Federal Reserve note are at it again, this time hoping that President Donald Trump and conservative Republicans will finally side with their three-pronged approach to revamping the nation’s currency system. Under S. 759, introduced March 29 by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., the government would end production of the $1 Federal Reserve note, revise the composition of the 5-cent coin, and suspend production of 1-cent coins. While the draft legislation calls for an end to paper dollar notes and the cent, it is silent on dollar coin production. Backers of the legislation...

He suffered from PTSD and was homeless before he was discovered in a hotel room in Sheridan with only a few belongings, including some Bruce Springsteen CDs and his autobiography. Reiman appeared to have no family until his sister was finally located. EVANSVILLE, Wyo. (AP) — Hundreds of people...
