Subduing the Sioux The Bloody Wars of 1876 (Part 1)

Posted: Monday, Jul 27th, 2015
[At the beginning of 1876], the gold rush to the Black Hills and Indian resentment at this "invasion" were mounting like thunderheads on opposite sides of the horizon, soon to meet head on. The following stories of the day [from publications such as the Cheyenne Leader and the Omaha Bee] give some idea of the white man's feeling and viewpoint,

Military earns right to bear arms

Posted: Monday, Jul 27th, 2015
Dear Editor, 
A recent article in the Casper Star Tribune continued the attack on those legislators and other concerned Wyoming citizens that favor Wyoming control of the public lands in Wyoming instead of Washington, D.C.

Posted: Monday, Jul 27th, 2015
After two false starts, Jordan finally tied the proverbial knot last week.
It was a simple, country affair. Actually, it was an all-hands-on-deck affair.
The proposal happened in May, after Bret, the groom, presented Kim and I with a pair of dwarf goats as signs of his eternal love for our daughter.

The pros and cons of camping

Modified: Monday, Jul 20th, 2015
I can't get enough of survival shows. Not the voting-off-the-island, fake-reality type, but the true roughin' it variety, where people try to survive for weeks on termites and murky water.
I don't consider myself high maintenance by any means, but I often wonder if I could survive in the wild for an extended amount of time.
I'd need to brush up

John Hunton Diaries: An ill-fated trek to Washington (part 2)

Posted: Monday, Jul 20th, 2015
Chief Red Cloud and the delegations first met President Grant at the White House on May 19th, but after greeting them, the President said he was too busy to discuss their problems that day and shunted them along to talk with the Commissioner of Indian Affairs and the Secretary of the Interior --- a real case of "passing the Buck"
