The artwork of 31 of the Middle East's premier contemporary women artists is coming to Jackson. “I AM” is an international traveling exhibit focusing on the contributions that Middle Eastern women make to local and global culture, and movements for peace and harmony.  

It’s already made stops in Jordan, London and Washington DC, and will open at the Center for the Arts in Jackson on Friday evening.

Students are required to do fire drills and tornado drills, yet Wyoming does not require public schools to do sexual assault prevention. Young people are more likely to be impacted by sexual violence than they are by any of those dangers. Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control estimates that approximately 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18.

For many women, getting their hair cut means going to the same stylist every six weeks for years, or even decades. In an effort to take advantage of those enduring ties, the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault is training beauticians to recognize the signs of abuse and how to help. Getting the program off the ground, however, has been slow going.

Former Wyo. bishop faces another sex abuse suit

Nov 4, 2011

Another lawsuit alleging sexual abuse has been filed against the former Roman Catholic bishop of Wyoming.

A Missouri man says Joseph Hart abused him when he was a child at St. Regis Church in Kansas City between 1975 and 76. The lawsuit was filed on Thursday in Jackson County, Missouri.

Five other people have previously accused Hart of sexual abuse. Their lawsuits were settled in 2008 as part of a $10 million deal involving allegations against a total of 12 clergy members.
