For the last four days there has been something wrong with the html language of the blog, causing it to act and appear different. That, combined with a leak in my water well and the family being here for my 73rd birthday, has caused some disruptions in my ability to blog. But as of this evening, the sand trap on the well is replaced, we had a wonderful family gathering, the technical problems have been resolved (I hope) and I well do my best to continue sharing the types of news and commentary important to us all.

Cristen Wohlgemuth Many of us grew up watching the great American westerns. They featured stars like John Wayne, Gary Cooper, and Clint Eastwood, fighting for justice, settling the wild frontier, and roaming free on the range. These stories captured something unique about our history and who we are as a people. Westerns became popular because they touched somewhere deep within the American heart. Did you know that, today, a little piece of that history lives on? In Wyoming’s gorgeous Bridger-Teton National Forest, cowboys still , just as they have done since the 1800’s. The Green River Drift cattle drive has been going on, more or less the same way, for well over a century. In much of the American West, unfortunately, this fabled aspect of

The number of market-ready cattle backlogged in feedyards may not be as large as previous estimates. While any tally of cattle currently waiting on available shackle space is – at best – an estimate, an analysis of 2020 Cattle on Feed and slaughter data from USDA suggests industry estimates of 1 million cattle backlogged may be overstated by as much as 50%. “After a closer analysis of the flow of cattle through feedlots from Cattle on Feed reports, steer and heifer slaughter, and packing plant capacity utilization, I believe the 1 million head backlog figure is too large,” says Sterling Marketing president John Nalivka, Vale, Ore. “Instead, the backlog in feedlots from the April slowdown is probably closer to 400,000 to 550,000 head.” In de.

As COVID-19 cases continue declining in many states, new threats are emerging: Alongside growing unemployment rates and an increase in depression, births are declining. According to provisional figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, births in America are in 35 years. Nearly 4 million babies were born in the U.S. last year, but that was still a 1 percent birth decrease and 2 percent fertility decrease from 2017. Birth rate decline has historically been to economic crises, and this pandemic, which looms larger than the 2008 recession, could eventually be an even bigger threat to Americans’ economic status, happiness, and more. The Numbers Don’t Look Good. In some ways, this isn’t ne.

Kevin R. Brock ...Keep in mind the FBI cannot begin to investigate anyone, especially a U.S. citizen or entity, without first creating a document that lists the reasonably suspicious factors that would legally justify the investigation. That’s FBI 101, taught Day 1 at the FBI Academy at Quantico, Va. To the untrained eye, the FBI document that launched Crossfire Hurricane can be confusing, and it may be difficult to discern how it might be inadequate. To the trained eye, however, it is a train wreck. There are a number of reasons why it is so bad. Two main ones are offered below (if you would like to follow along, the ): ...Second, the Crossfire Hurricane case was opened as a (FARA) investigation. A FARA investigation involves a criminal vi.

When a woman told a wildlife official she thought she'd seen a wolverine on the beach of Washington state's Long Beach Peninsula they didn't believe her. The elusive creatures live in remote mountainous areas and any sightings -- let alone on a beach -- are rare, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). Then she showed them a picture. In the May 23 snap, a furry animal with distinctive markings appears to be eating the carcass of a marine animal that washed ashore. Jeff Lewis, a mesocarnivore conservation biologist with the WDFW, told CNN about the encounter and that he confirmed the animal was indeed a wolverine. There are only around 20 of the mammals in the entire state, . They are usually roaming in the remote.

I know. I couldn't believe it wasn't Ernest Tubb, either. This really is Allen Flatt with That's What She Wrote (1953). Ronnie Pugh, in his book Ernest Tubb: The Texas Troubadour wrote, "Mercury, in fact, became almost a second home for Ernest Tubb imitators, since they also signed Tubb Clone Allen Flatt in 1954, after his earlier discs for Jamboree, Tennessee and Republic. Hal Smith recalls Flatt had live radio programs on WKDA, A Nashville station. Imagine that: Ernest Tubb so popular that he was mimicked in his own city!" Tubb recorded a different tune with the title That's All She Wrote.

Cheyenne Frontier Days, billed as the world's largest outdoor rodeo, has been canceled for the first time in its 124-year history due to the coronavirus, city and state officials announced Wednesday. Event organizers decided the risk of spreading the virus was too great for the more than 140,000 people who visit the city for Frontier Days over the last two weeks in July, Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr told The Associated Press in an interview. “What this pandemic means is we just can’t come together,” Orr said. "We really have to stay apart so we can come together again sooner rather than later. It’s clear that we just aren’t going to be ready for this.” Frontier Days carried on through both world wars and the Great Depression, when tough financ.

I was expecting a check in the mail with the stimulus payment. Instead I got a debit card. I had to call a phone no. and enter a bunch of damn numbers to activate the card. Then establish a PIN number. Then go to and register, with a username and a password that had to have certain characteristics. The registration was a 5-step process, including 2 secret questions, plus two emails with verification codes. Since I didn't want to play their debit card game, I had to give my bank name, routing and account numbers, and the amount to be transferred. This could take up to two business days. Not fun with my fading eyesight and crippled fingers. Instead of just turning a check over and writing for deposit only, I had to spend an hour a.

John Sexton In order for this to make sense you have to be familiar with the preceding steps in this very unusual case. You probably know by now that Judge Emmett Sullivan is the judge handling the case of Michael Flynn. When the Department of Justice decided to drop the case against Flynn, it appeared that would be the end of it. But instead of dismissing the case, Judge Sullivan appointed a retired judge named John Gleeson to come up with arguments contrary to those presented by the DOJ, i.e. arguments why he shouldn’t dismiss Flynn’s case. The selection of Gleeson for this task was not arbitrary. Just days before Sullivan selected him, Gleeson had co-authored a piece in the Washington Post headlined, “” In the piece, Gleeson recommend th.

A grizzly bear attacked and critically injured a man mountain biking near Big Sky on Monday. Local authorities got a report of the bear attack just after 1 p.m. on Monday, said Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks spokesperson Morgan Jacobsen. A man in his 60s was mountain biking alone on a trail on private property in the Spanish Peaks Community just above Ousel Falls Park Trail near Big Sky. Initial investigations from FWP show that its likely the mountain biker surprised the grizzly bear after rounding a sharp corner on the trail. "It does not look like a predatory attack," Jacobsen said. The biker was able to escape the bear and walked to the South Fork Road where he got help from a passing motorist, Jacobsen said. He wasn't sure how far the.

Ten Thousand Commandments is the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s annual survey of the size, scope, and cost of federal regulations, and how they affect American consumers, businesses, and the U.S. economy at large. Written by CEI Vice President for Policy Wayne Crews, it shines a light on the large and under-appreciated “hidden tax” of America’s regulatory state. The current edition marks 26 years since the first report was published as part of the Journal of Regulation and Social Costs in 1993. Federal government spending, deficits, and the national debt are staggering, but so is the impact of federal regulations. Unfortunately, the financial impact of these rules gets little attention in policy debates because, unlike spending and taxe.

David Beenken was a staple in his community. A proud farmer since 1976, his farming career was full of challenges, including the crisis in the 1980s and producing pigs in the 1990s. While he had a love for farming, he also had a love for tractors and went to school to be a diesel mechanic. “He was the neighborhood mechanic,” says Caleb Hamer, a farmer in Hudson, Iowa. “Anything of his genre. he'd be willing to work on.” People who knew David Beenken say he was a man with a generous soul, always eager and willing to help. “He was so outgoing,” says Scott Beenken, a farmer in Hudson, Iowa and David’s son. “He was a social animal, really. He thrived with people.” David had a memorable smile rooted in compassion, and a farmer who will now be mi.

Bob Boze Bell. August 2, 1876. Wild Bill Hickok walks from his camp on the edge of Deadwood to Lewis, Nuttall and Mann’s No. 10 Saloon. Entering around noon, he encounters about a half-dozen men.

Massie and Charlie Henry Rich, a card dealer Wild Bill knows from his days in Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory. Wild Bill joins their game. Wild Bill sits in the only available seat, near the rear entrance of the saloon, facing the front door. He usually sits along the west wall, but Rich is occupying that seat. Wild Bill prefers that seat’s view of the entire room, including good views of the front and back doors, and asks Rich for his “regular” seat, but t.

A Los Angeles animal rights activist is accused of staging gruesome dog killings during trips to slaughterhouses for footage in his foundation videos, according to a report. Marc Ching, who runs the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation, allegedly paid a butcher in Indonesia to hang a dog in one video and burn it to death so he could stage the scene for the camera, . His undercover reels from slaughterhouses were brought into question by local animal rights activists in Indonesia, Cambodia and elsewhere in Asia who said that the killings depicted are much crueler than the normal methods there, the outlet reported. Several butchers captured in Ching’s videos said he showed up on a visit to a market in Tomohon, Indonesia, asking to buy dog meat i.

Tyson Foods, the largest meat processor in the United States, has transformed its facilities across the country since legions of its workers started getting sick from the novel coronavirus. It has set up on-site medical clinics, screened employees for fevers at the beginning of their shifts, required the use of face coverings, installed plastic dividers between stations and taken a host of other steps to slow the spread. Despite those efforts, the number of Tyson employees with the coronavirus has exploded from less than 1,600 a month ago to more than 7,000 today, according to a Washington Post analysis of news reports and public records. What has happened at Tyson — and in the meat industry overall — shows how difficult it is to get the na.

The Bureau of Land Management has started testing a promising new fertility control vaccine that could help address the growing overpopulation of wild horses on public rangelands. Researchers believe the Oocyte Growth Factor (OGF) vaccine, administered to a captured wild mare through a single dose, may safely prevent pregnancy for up to three years or longer. Following an environmental analysis and final decision record issued last March, testing of the vaccine began May 12 and is taking place in Carson City, Nevada as part of a joint research project between the BLM and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s National Wildlife Research Center. As part of the project, 16 previously gathered wi.
