Cynthia Lummis announced that she is running for the U.S. Senate seat that Mike Enzi will leave empty at the end of his term. Lummis is the first of several high-profile names in Wyoming politics expected to step up to the plate for the job. Photo courtesy of Cynthia Lummis.
The gold dome of the newly restored Capitol Building gleamed brightly under the Wyoming sun Wednesday. The “people’s house” reopened amid a full day of celebrations in Cheyenne. After a series of speeches on the Capitol steps, House Speaker Steve Harshman led a large crowd of dignitaries, guests and onlookers in a countdown to the moment of the official ribbon cutting.

In Rawlins, City Council is set to tackle the first of three readings needed to revise vague language in Title 8 municipal that officials used to set different requirements for the city’s two licensed trash haulers.

A double-edge sword of a decision was handed down yesterday in the lawsuit brought by Dirty Boyz Sanitation against the City of Rawlins. On one hand, District Court Judge Dawnessa Snyder ruled that city council violated Wyoming public meetings laws in April of 2018. That’s when council, meeting behind closed doors, discussed enforcing trash hauler requirements with the city manager and then took collective action. The smoking gun was an email the city manager sent to a competing trash hauler detailing the decision council had reached illegally behind closed doors. Although council’s decision was illegal, Judge Snyder also ruled that a new council ultimately corrected the wrong by discussing the issue at a public meeting nine months later. As a result, the judge ruled that the issue is moot and granted the city’s request to dismiss the case. Photo: Cali O’Hare/Bigfoot 99.

  1. I love listen to Bigfoot radio all the time. But I really like the morning show with Jim. However this comment is a kudos to the radio station for playing the National Anthem, “Star spangled Banner”. In these times of political madness. It is a breathe of fresh air to here it at any time. Thanks Jim for keeping the patriotic feeling going ever day. It kind of reminds me of my younger days staying up late and the TV station would sign off with the national Anthem. God bless America..
