Wyoming followed up its 44-17 win at Utah State with a 38-14 home loss to Hawaii in the 2021 regular-season finale. Hawaii also experienced massive roster turnover after head coach Todd Graham resigned in mid-January and was replaced by Timmy Chang. “We’re coming back with a chip on our shoulder after last year’s game,” UW linebacker Easton Gibbs said. The Cowboys planned to pack their running game after finishing with 362 yards and averaging 7.4 yards per carry against the reigning Mountain West champion Aggies.

Two hundred years ago, in the landmark case of Cohens v. Virginia (1821), the future of our Constitution, the aspirations of national unity and the status and role of the federal judiciary itself, were before the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court could not exercise appellate authority over state court decisions, then each state would be free to interpret federal legislation and the Constitution as it wished. The Cohen brothers, members of a prominent Baltimore banking family, had been convicted in a Virginia court for violating the state’s law prohibiting the sale of lottery tickets. Five years earlier, in Martin v. Hunter’s Lessee (1816), the Court had held, over the objection of the high court of Virginia, that it enjoyed appellate authority over a state court decision in cases involving civil suits. Now, in Cohens, Virginia continued to insist that the Supreme Court could not review state court decisions involving criminal law.21 days ago Casper Star-Tribune
But to outgoing State Superintendent of Public Instruction Brian Schroeder, addressing concerns about the sexualization of children in public education have surpassed those issues in importance. He first brought up his worry over the treatment of gender identity and sexual identity in Wyoming schools in a vitriolic June statement issued by the Wyoming Department of Education. "Not in our schools, not with our children, not in our state and not as long as I draw breath." He mentioned that Wyoming teachers are paid similar salaries as teachers in surrounding states. The woman, who said she has a masters degree in education, had been a teacher for 12 years before quitting.1 month ago Casper Star-Tribune
His mother, accompanying him to the school board meeting for the first time, watched from a seat in the crowd. School board elections have become the fulcrum of those discussions; in Natrona County, 15 candidates are competing for four open seats.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — For days North Korean officials have raged over U.S.-South Korean military drills, promising a violent response. That response came this week, when the North fired more than 20 missiles — one of which splashed down near the South Korean sea border. The latest launches follow a string of North Korean tests of nuclear-capable missiles. North Korea may realize that Moscow, which has been a supporter of the North and its military for decades, could benefit from the distraction the missile tests create for Washington. But another North Korean nuclear test could also be a risk for the North itself, Jeffery Robertson, an associate professor of diplomatic studies at Yonsei University, wrote recently.1 month ago Casper Star-Tribune
