The university and the Governor have been working on methods of having that statue and others "relocated" but it's met with a lot of resistance from the Conservative corners.  The students had just returned in the last week or so and they apparently decided to take matters into their own hands.  Some of the talk around here is that they figured if they waited for an "official" removal, that a Charlottesville-type calamity would ensue, though the video of the toppling looks more frenzied than calculated.

The governor will be fine; current gov. is fine, but a little bit of a game-player. Didn't advocate for Medicare expansion then once it was defeated, fought for it. No change yet for our congressional delegation; I hope Barrasso falters but don't count on it.

If the local defeated candidates take a hint and stop trying to install their hateful agenda, it would be a good day.

As a 3:1 political minority in this state, being able to avoid the nutjobs is pretty much a blue ribbon day.

 
That goes for all of us these days.
We have a federal election coming up next year (already? I know!) and the Conservatives are ramping up their fear mongering of 'the other' already. The Koch bros are funnelling money into elections up here too, via the resource extraction industry. Thankfully, Canadians didn't bite on that crap the last time around.

Well, the Wyoming primaries were yesterday, and while Barrasshole and Cheneysdottir both advanced, they also both had challengers that took 1/3+ of the vote. In a GOP state like this, to have the GOP primaries involving an incumbent be contested at all is sort of unheard of. Cheney will win the general in a walk, probably nearing 75%, but Barrasso has a challenger whose only negative for those who talk to him is the (D) by his name. He can sell his vision to anyone, if he can get them to drop the blind party loyalty. Gary Trauner #CountryB4Party
 
The race for Governor went to a guy who endured withering anonymous attacks, some terrible negative advertising, glossy mailings, really nasty stuff that literally made me change parties to vote for the guy. If he upsets the Tea Party wing so much, he's got to be the best of the lot. He beat out Foster Friess, the out-of-state billionaire who backed Trump and decided that in exchange for his support there, the Trump machine would support his bid for elective office. Steve Bannon suggested he run against Barrasso, but decided to run for Governor. He has a home in Jackson Hole, but probably could have run  for any of a few states. Don Trump Junior sent the most lackluster endorsement letter I've ever seen. "From the desk of Donald J. Trump, Jr." all set in Times Roman and just looking like a rough draft. It did have typos. Friess was the guy who advocated using aspirin as birth control. Ladies, just put the tablet between your knees. But the 3rd place out of 7 was a fossil fuels activist and while she would have been better than Friess, she still would have sold our public lands to ...Foster Friess and oil cos. The two of them together split the right-right-wing vote.

A couple of gerrymandered state districts changed hands, a long-time stick-in-the-mud from the next county finally lost to a guy I don't really care for (retired school administrator) but he's eminently more qualified for the position.

Our county commissioners' race had several super-right, tea party is RINO, candidates who all lost. They had run for precinct committeeman a few years ago and were up for it again, and even lost there.

I've always said that real, local, Wyomingites are conservative, but not hateful. These ones who got beat are all from somewhere else and moved here to try to make it an Idaho panhandle white nationalist enclave.

This story represents a clear example of capitalistic greed, the need for regulatory oversight, and  how inept and greedy politicians can twist regulations to suite their own needs at the expense of the public.

Tom Marino is a four-term Republican member of the House who represents a district in northeastern Pennsylvania that has been hard-hit by the opioid crisis. Yet Marino also has been a friend on Capitol Hill of the giant drug companies that distribute the pain pills that have wreaked so much devastation around the nation.

Marino was the chief advocate of the Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act, which requires the government to meet a higher bar before taking certain enforcement actions.

The Drug Enforcement Administration fought against the bill for years, but finally relented last year after a leadership change at the agency. Marino is now President Trump’s nominee to become the nation’s next drug czar.

The new law makes it virtually impossible for the DEA to freeze suspicious narcotic shipments from the companies, according to internal agency and Justice Department documents and an independent assessment by the DEA’s chief administrative law judge in a soon-to-be-published law review article. That powerful tool had allowed the agency to immediately prevent drugs from reaching the street.

Several hundred people have gathered in downtown Durham - several blocks from where I work - in response to rumors that there would be a KKK/White Supremacist protest, which was to be in response to the illegal removal of a Confederate monument by a crowd here a few days ago.  There have apparently been no KKK types showing up.  The crowd marched several blocks and now appears to be dispersing, according to news reports.  Durham is a much larger city than Charlottesville, probably about 250K, and has a substantial police force (I can hear their motorcycles once in a while), but this gathering looks more like a party in some ways.  No incidents that I've heard of - apparently a "peaceful" rally. Hopefully it will stay that way. It's really hot and humid today, so I don't know how much longer people will stay out there. There are a couple of news helicopters hovering around.  Anyhow, it doesn't appear that they will impede my route home; after all, there's a bartender in my hometown (about 15 miles away), impatiently awaiting my arrival.

H'burg Animal Care and Control received a call recently for a kitten stuck in a very deep storm drain.

ACO Earhart responded and found a young kitten without the ability to escape from this predicament. Utilizing her prodigious knowledge and experience, ACO Earhart requested help from Sergeant Hammer with the Harrisonburg Police Department, as well as from H'burg Public Works.

Together, ACO Earhart, three members of H'burg Public Works, and Sergeant Hammer were able to remove the exceedingly heavy grate over the storm drain and set a trap to attempt to save the kitten. Because no human would be able to enter the storm drain safely, ACO Earhart ingeniously tied a rope to the handle of the trap, and with the help of Public Works, set the trap.

ACO Bechtel was informed of the situation and after securing a friendly Husky at the R'ham-H'burg SPCA, received a call for another loose Husky in the road in the area of Port Republic Road and Forest Hill Drive.

ACO Bechtel, after a very recent encounter with skunk, was able to smell skunk spray from nearly a mile away while responding to find the new loose Husky. ACO Bechtel found said Husky and found that the adventurous girl had climbed to freedom, then found what she thought was a friendly black and white cat.

After making sure the fragrant Husky was safe in his vehicle, ACO Bechtel responded to the storm drain, due to a recent rain, and found that the trapped kitten had indeed been lured into the trap ACO Earhart had set.

ACO Bechtel, holding the trap suspended by rope with one hand, balancing on one foot, was able to pull the heavy grate aside with his other hand, removing the kitten from the drain. The fragrant and adventurous Husky's family was found and ACO Bechtel returned her to her family before taking the kitten to the R'ham-H'burg SPCA.

ACO Bechtel was informed of the situation and after securing a friendly Husky at the R'ham-H'burg SPCA, received a call for another loose Husky in the road in the area of Port Republic Road and Forest Hill Drive.

ACO Bechtel, after a very recent encounter with skunk, was able to smell skunk spray from nearly a mile away while responding to find the new loose Husky. ACO Bechtel found said Husky and found that the adventurous girl had climbed to freedom, then found what she thought was a friendly black and white cat.

After making sure the fragrant Husky was safe in his vehicle, ACO Bechtel responded to the storm drain, due to a recent rain, and found that the trapped kitten had indeed been lured into the trap ACO Earhart had set.

ACO Bechtel, holding the trap suspended by rope with one hand, balancing on one foot, was able to pull the heavy grate aside with his other hand, removing the kitten from the drain. The fragrant and adventurous Husky's family was found and ACO Bechtel returned her to her family before taking the kitten to the R'ham-H'burg SPCA.
