We’ve been here before: Wyoming nuclear project echoes of past

WYOMING — When state officials unveiled in June that a nuclear demonstration project is slated for Wyoming, they touted it as an advanced technology. But critics of the Natrium project say we’ve been here before — with the same technology and the same assurances made — only to see hopes dashed and massive public investments go to waste.

EXPLAINER: Will Wyoming do enough to limit evictions?

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A federal freeze on most evictions enacted last year is scheduled to expire Saturday, after the Biden administration extended the original date by a month.

Lenhart: Wyoming and America are better because of Mike Enzi

Wyoming lost one of its titans this week with the passing of former U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi. Sen. Enzi was an example of the best of Wyoming. He served his community, his state and his nation with a humble attitude and a hard work ethic. He was a throwback to a different time in the U.S. Senate, when the focus was on the deliberative body and finding solutions, rather than the grandstanding and deadlock was see so often today. Mike Enzi was the rare politician that met our (often unrealistic) expectations of how we hope our politicians act. We were lucky to have him.
