Bush Reflects In Laramie

Laramie, Wy – Former President George Bush says he's had a marvelous public life that has mixed some good with the bad. Bush participated in a public conversation with former Senator Alan Simpson at the University of Wyoming. Bush notes that despite a tough campaign where he lost to former President Bill Clinton he has enjoyed working with Clinton on Tsunami relief and now helping hurricane victims. Bush says the key to getting through tough political times is to have a sense of humor. The event marked the end of U-W's major fundraising campaign that raised over 200 million dollars.

These positive tests match up with others documented since statewide testing for chronic wasting began in 2003.

Education Law In Flux

Laramie, Wy – A trial started Monday with lawyers for school districts arguing the model for funding education in Wyoming is unconstitutional. At the same time a committee from the legislature is re-working the funding system. The House chair of the committee, Jeff Wasserburger, says his committee should take care of many of the concerns that will come up during the trail, but the lawsuit focuses on school construction too. Wasserburger says that is not something the legislature is taking on right now.
