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.

Western Exposure: Summer Memories — Adults are always trying to impart on kids the attributes that will help them succeed later in life. Take summer camps for example. They're geared toward inspiring positive pursuits in young people, whether it be reading, sports, respect for nature or the community of church life.

Canadian soldier mistakenly buried with Nazis laid to rest in Saskatchewan — EASTEND, SASK. - A Saskatchewan-born soldier was laid to rest Wednesday in his home province, 70 years to the day after he was killed in northern France during the Second World War. Lawrence S. Gordon fought with U.S. forces, but his remains couldn't be accounted for after his death.

[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.

How Population Growth Affects Linkage Disequilibrium — Abstract The "LD curve" relates the linkage disequilibrium (LD) between pairs of nucleotide sites to the distance that separates them along the chromosome. The shape of this curve reflects natural selection, admixture between populations, and the history of population size. The present article derives new results about the last of these effects.
