Western Exposure: Same Old — If you're reading this, you probably live in Wyoming. And that means you probably spend a lot of time in the car. In this state we're blessed with wide-open space above all else. Which is great, until you need to get somewhere in a hurry.

Western Exposure: Means of Escape — I don't have the urge to run away from any part of my life. I have a job I enjoy, a great family, and friends who mean the world to me. But if the opportunity to leave behind the stress and responsibility of being a productive citizen ever came up, it wouldn't hurt to be ready.

Western Exposure: Abound — Earlier this week a local leader referred to Casper as the cultural center of Wyoming. Hearing the quote spoken out loud seemed like an odd way to describe our town, but I didn't know why. I have no room to criticize, though.

Western Exposure: Glass Ceiling — I was fortunate to grow up in a family where experiencing the outdoors was mandatory, no matter how hard it was raining or what was on television that weekend. I car camped as a kid, did my time as an awkward, depressed Boy Scout, and by the end of high school had developed a love for backpacking.

They're geared toward inspiring positive pursuits in young people, whether it be reading, sports, respect for nature or the community of church life.

[Updated] Search for boy missing in the river now a recovery mission — Authorities continue to search for an 11-year-old boy who disappeared in the North Platte River on Monday afternoon, but said they are now treating the effort as a recovery mission, rather than a potential rescue. The boy went missing after trying to help his younger brother, a Casper Fire-EMS spokesman said.

Western Exposure: Hell Freezes Over — I didn't mention my graduate school coursework in copyright law when a burly representative of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club challenged a reporter and I on the subject. Some arguments you just aren't going to win. And when he offered to have a group of his buddies come "explain" it to me, I figured he wasn't interested in debating the fair-use doctrine.
