Wyoming Newspaper Project
Friday, May 4, 2012
Have you ever taken a look at the Wyoming Newspaper Project? This resource is easily available in the LINKS section of this website. You can discover the stories that formed Wyoming through this project. For the sheer volume of information they contain, newspapers are the single most important printed record of human activity. Historians, genealogists, and other scholars rely on them to provide a first-hand and sometimes the only account of local news. Available through this website are newspapers printed in Wyoming between 1849 and 1922, in an easily searchable format. This is a work in progress and pages continue to be made available. If you are a history buff or looking for something that happened in our area, check it out today!
The newest novel by C.J. Box is “Force of Nature.” In 1999 Nate Romanowski was with a secret Special Forces Unit in Central Asia when a colleague did something terrible – now, the man is eliminating anyone who knew about it. Nate knows the man will strike out at his friends to draw him out which makes the Pickett family a target; he also knows the only way to fight back will be outside the law. He can do it – but he doesn’t know about his straight arrow friend, Joe. Call today to place a hold.
