1445 - General election predictions for Wyoming

1444 - Old Wyoming is turning into New Wyoming
By Bill Sniffin
  No, I am not running for any political office, but lately we have been all over Wyoming and what we have seen is very impressive.

         In Gillette for a state tourism summit, we heard Mary Silvernell of the Campbell County Lodging Board say that lodging tax receipts are at “an all-time high.” It is not tourists who are filling all those hotel rooms, but workers in the oil and gas industry.

         It appears the Powder River Basin is enjoying that similar kind of boom as that is occurring up north in the North Dakota Bakken Formation, yet it is relatively unknown around the state that this is happening.
