Cowboy State Daily Video News: Monday April 29, 2024

It’s time to take a look at what’s happening around Wyoming! My name is Wendy Corr and I bring you the Cowboy State Daily editorial headlines for Monday, April 29.

Most people would like to think they would act like Ryan Pasborg did on February 1, 2022, when he rushed into a burning Green River house to save a mother and child trapped inside, but it is impossible to know until faced with this situation.

Pasborg’s life has changed a lot since that fateful day, receiving a Carnegie Medal — the nation’s highest civilian honor for heroism — and a new job and career thanks to his heroic actions that day, according to Leo Wolfson from the Cowboy State Daily.

“The house was on fire and he saw it as he was passing and he immediately stopped, went into the house, crawled on his hands and knees and saved the mother and her young child. Two years later, Pasborg received this medal from Governor Mark Gordon on Saturday evening. But what’s truly remarkable and how much his life has truly changed since then is that when Pasborg found out he was going to receive this medal in December, he was actually unemployed at the time. And the gaming company Pace-O-Matic, which runs Cowboy Skills Games – and they had honored Pasborg in the past at Cheyenne Frontier Days – found him to be the perfect person for the position they were trying to fill in Wyoming. But I spoke to Paul Goldean, the owner and CEO of the company, and he said it came down to the character, courage and heroism that showed they were looking for exactly the right person in their next employee to represent the company in Wyoming. .”

Pasborg said it was a job that changed his life. He now plans to retire from the company.

The Pinedale, Wyoming, mother who received $400 in citations for setting up a stand for her daughter to sell Girl Scout cookies wants to retire from the international stage.

In fact, after telling her story to Cowboy State Daily’s Pat Maio on Monday, she turned down offers from people wanting to show support for her daughter’s effort to sell 1,200 boxes of cookies. Pat says he has personally responded to nearly 100 emails regarding the story.

“Everyone wants to know, where do you send money to buy cookies for Girl Scouts?” …I even had one person offer to pay the $508 legal bill. You know, buy 100 cookies, buy 29 cookies, or whatever, you know, boxes of cookies. But the mother told me, which I think says a lot about her, that she said it wasn’t about the money. This is an abuse of power.

City officials maintain their legal version of the case and say the citations were justified.

A man calling himself Lee The Horselogger has been living on the road in a horse-drawn wagon for 18 years, and he’s crossing into Wyoming again.

Cowboy State Daily’s Mark Heinz caught up with him near Hanna, on his fifth trip across America.

He earns his living as a professional horse driver. In other words, doing things like driving these horse-drawn carriages around big cities. …in 2006, he embarked on a journey that has never stopped since. He took breaks here and there. Technically, this is his fifth crossing of the United States. This time he leaves Nevada to go to Boston. But he doesn’t see these crossings as separate crossings, he sees them as part of this same continuous journey that he has been making since 2006 in a horse-drawn wagon.

Horselogger has a network of friends he’s made along the way who help him with tasks such as running errands or delivering bags of grain for his horse, a Suffolk punch gelding named Jesse, who weighs 2,250 pounds and consumes about $1,000 worth of food per month. .

Saratoga cowboy JB Zielke traveled all over the world, taking jobs on ranches where he could and learning how the world made westerns.

Cowboy State Daily’s Jake Nichols interviewed the world-traveling jet setter, who – quite by accident and much to his satisfaction – traded a short-lived, adrenaline-fueled bull riding career for something as dangerous: working on a ranch in some of the most remote places. on earth.

“He stalked cattle on every continent except one. He traveled around the world. His passport is filled out and he has taken out a book. He’s just a fascinating guy to talk to – from Argentina to Mexico, Sweden, South Africa and Mongolia where he rode a reindeer. JB Zielke has been hitting cattle all over this planet.

His self-published book, “The Lost Cowboy,” won two 2024 Spur Awards. In it, Zielke chronicles his adventures on six of the world’s seven continents, places that offer the last of the Wild West.

If returning native species to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem were truly a priority, the nation’s first national park would be teeming with more than just grizzly bears, wolves, and enormous bison with prehistoric genes. There is also said to be a thriving population of giant mammoths inhabiting the ecosystem.

And if a group of ambitious geneticists has anything to say about it, Yellowstone tourists may one day have to navigate mammoth traffic jams on their journeys through the park with its majestic bison and bears. That’s according to Cowboy State Daily’s Andrew Rossi.

“Colossal Biosciences is committed to resurrecting the woolly mammoth through a mammoth-elephant hybrid by 2028. And it wants to bring these genetically resurrected mammoths into modern environments and essentially make them wild animals, restoring animals extinct for at least 10 years. at least 10,000 years old and perhaps more.

Faced with the question of a hypothetical future with mammoths in Yellowstone, many scientists believe that the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem could absorb their return without much problem. But these gigantic creatures could wreak havoc on tourist vehicles as well as modern buildings.
