   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
We have a political blizzard in today’s edition of the Joke of the Day!


"It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them."

~Alfred Adler (1870 - 1937)


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
One of the candidates for U.S. House in Wyoming is suggesting that some form of military service be mandatory for anyone over the age of 18. Participants would serve for two years and would not necessarily be assigned combat roles. The candidate says part of the pay would be set aside for education and other civilian needs. The candidate says the work would build a sense of pride.   Should military service be mandatory in the United States?



The Wyoming State Board of Education has passed new rules that would allow students to graduate if they pass competency tests, regardless of whether they passed or flunked courses.  Should students be allowed to graduate if they flunk a course but pass a competency test?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Wyoming law requires local governments to buy advertising for legal notices in newspapers that have a minimum circulation of 500 and are for sale to readers. Sublette County tried moving the legals to a free shopper, which the county estimated would save $20,000 a year. A judge has ruled against the county, saying that using the shopper did not comply with state law.   Should legal notices only be allowed in paid newspapers?

Legal notices should only be published in regular newspapers
52.2%

Legal notices should be allowed in free shoppers
47.8%

A coalition of Native American tribes has asked the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to transplant grizzly bears to appropriate habitats within reservations, rather than allow trophy hunting of the animals. Native Americans consider grizzlies to be sacred, and could transplant all of the bears that would be used for hunting. Game and Fish is considering the proposal.   Should grizzly bears in Wyoming be transplanted to reservations, or managed through hunting?

Transplant grizzly bears to reservations
61.7%

Allow hunting of grizzly bears
38.3%
