From the Oct. 25, 1934 News Record:
Campbell County needs a vigorous, fearless investigator for state senator. Some $4.6 million is the fabulous sum the United States government allowed Wyoming under the National Relief Highway Program for 1933-34. Less than 1 percent is the share Campbell County was allowed out of that, according to available information. Why is it that state highway income and state highway spending are not made public? Some $2.3 million more (the figures stagger one) is the enormous sum now available for 1935, in addition to the $4.6 million the government gave before. Only $69,000 is made available to Campbell County up to now. Campbell County has been discriminated against in distributing road funds for years. You, who for years have been denied your share of state and federally built roads, now have a chance to vote for a man who has the ability to find out the truth and the courage to tell it and do something about it. Vote for Harmond C. Ride, independent.
From the Oct. 11, 1951 News Record:
Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey announces that local draft boards will begin reclassifying about 500,000 married men without children this week, and said some will be inducted almost immediately. The draft law passed by Congress in June ordered the reclassification of childless married men from 3-A to 1-A unless they qualify for deferments on some grounds other than marriage. Hershey warned married draft registrants to notify the local boards “immediately” if they have become fathers in the past two years. He also pointed out that the new regulations change rules governing deferments in cases where a registrant claims unborn children as dependents. In the past, a registrant has been able to obtain a dependency deferment from the date his child was conceived — and on his own say so. The new regulations require a registrant to file a physician’s certificate stating that a child has been conceived.
From the Nov. 7, 1974 News Record:
“Gillette can make it happen.” That is the slogan of Michael B. Enzi, who will take office as mayor of Gillette in January. Enzi received 1,604 votes to win over James T. McManamen, who took 547 votes. Enzi said he has drawn up a list of priorities for city and administrative needs. “The problems with the priorities is that Gillette needs all of them right now. With the impact we are getting, we’re being pushed into a time frame that makes everything a necessity,” he said. “With enough suggestions and enough people willing to help, we can put the problems into the right time frame and get them solved.”
