The new Cody library is moving towards a completion date of October 4. Check out some shots of the work in progress.
"Negative is that votes don't count! Waste taxpayer money to please a few. And - what is your point??"Mr. Pung's other sign read, "You can't fix stupid."
"According to Wyoming Department of Revenue statistics, county hotel and motel tax collections saw a 40.7 percent increase from 2002-2006 for January-March. These significant economic benefits have been incurred despite a drop in winter visitation through the east entrance."But not so fast.
"The east entrance is open just 90 days in the winter and visitation has averaged a scant 13 people per day for the past three years. Last season, that number shrank to around 3 entries per day."No doubt, 13 folks a day is kinda low, and 3 entries a day is downright crummy. But a quick math check throws some doubt on the number-crunching.
Basically, we want to use this blog to do things we can't do with the paper.
Things we just couldn't fit. If we have four terrific photos (or stories) from the Park County Fair's rabbit show, it's unlikely we'll be able to get all of them in the paper. But online, space isn't an issue. So when we run out of room, this is where we'll put the extra stuff. Online exclusives. Things like audio, video, and interactive features don't print well, so we'll stick them here. This is also a place where we can include reminders for upcoming events, or post sports scores. We know a lot of things happen between the Tribune's publication dates. Things that are a little too silly. Journalists aren't serious all the time, but papers kind of need to be. If we need to recount a hilarious anecdote or point out that students in Park County School District #1 consume more pickles per capita than anywhere else, we'll probably do it here.
