Western Exposure: Betsy Brown — He called her Betsy. Or, alternately, the Brown Bomber. Both names seemed to fit just fine. Besides, I was too in awe of the hunk of metal before me to focus on what anyone was saying. Nick Cody sold me his truck the other week.

Western Exposure: Clear and Calm — A Wyoming winter is my preferred habitat. Most people consider spring to be the season of rejuvenation or rebirth. And with good cause. The frozen landscape thaws and is transformed as grasses green, trees bud and flowers bloom. Furred and feathered creatures appear and their young are born.

Western Exposure: Cover For Me — A few months ago, I filed an entry under this weekly column in which I waxed poetic about trading in my day-to-day responsibilities for an old camper and heading out to live off the grid. Someone later told me that midway through the read, they thought I was surprising my employer with an unconventional letter of resignation.

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.

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.
