Simpson Says "Right" Not Great For Republicans

Laramie, Wy – Former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson is concerned about how the push from the right seems to be impacting the Republican Party. Simpson says pushes from the left hurt Democrats in the 80's and he thinks the G-O-P should beware. He was disturbed about some of the criticism that former Supreme Court Nominee Harriet Miers had to face. "Republicans never do well when they give their own people the saliva test" said Simpson.

Thomas Opposes Fees

Washington D-C –
U-S Senator Craig Thomas says fees are not appropriate for most Bureau of Land Management lands and Forest service land. During a hearing on last years passage of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act Thomas said that while Park Service fees are useful he thinks other fees can go too far. Thomas thinks charging someone extra to go fishing in the Big Horns or to ride around on the Sand Dunes in Southwest Wyoming is wrong. Thomas says fees on other federal lands should only be charged for legitimate enhanced services.

Bush Reflects In Laramie

Laramie, Wy – Former President George Bush says he's had a marvelous public life that has mixed some good with the bad. Bush participated in a public conversation with former Senator Alan Simpson at the University of Wyoming. Bush notes that despite a tough campaign where he lost to former President Bill Clinton he has enjoyed working with Clinton on Tsunami relief and now helping hurricane victims. Bush says the key to getting through tough political times is to have a sense of humor. The event marked the end of U-W's major fundraising campaign that raised over 200 million dollars.

Laramie, WY – The discovery of chronic wasting disease in a new part of the state this fall was not a surprise to the Game and Fish Department. A deer and an elk shot in the far southern part of Albany County tested positive. Game and Fish says the discovery was hardly a shocker since the disease is established in all surrounding hunt areas. These positive tests match up with others documented since statewide testing for chronic wasting began in 2003.
