Before I get into my rant here, several things screwed up my day. First it got cold again, plus rainy, but not just here. The unpredictable weather even postponed the Toyota Dealers 400 at Richmond NASCAR race. There I was , chips, peanuts, soda, and a downpour . Now I got to miss the dang thing due to church. Although I might cut short church a bit. Then I get up, with this dream in my head. I can’t remember all the details, except the awakening part was me giving some blonde a ankle rub. She had these vivid pink ankle socks, not the normal nylons that attract me so well. Then outside of some members of the club, of all our corporate and close friends, the only bunch that remembered that Monday is my birthday, was Hooters>at least somebody remembered.
Allrighty then, if you reside in Evanston Wyoming, what you see is all too much Utah influence in Evanston, and much of the local commerce is dependent on Utah, at least metro Utah. Power company? Utah. Natural gas for heat? Utah, even most if not all of the local media is UTAH, we see UTAH metro news, which has little if anything to do, with what’s going on in Wyoming. Want news of what’s going on in Wyoming’s state capitol ? It’s either the Casper Star Tribune, or surfing the Internet. No local news for hell sake, and the greedy bnuggests of our local newspaper that I stay away from like I do NGL, there is no local news. Weather ? That’s so called reported from our competing radio station, except for several things, NONE OF IT IS LIVE!! You get a twice a day recorded or imported stream, which makes me wonder, what are they using. Download horsepower is not our problem it’s the upload speed to be able to feed Livestream. Oh on going over the air? For us that’s two years down the avenue. Reason, bidding on what few local holes of the FM band is feverous. The real question again comes from the greed of Utah radio and broadcasters big heavy weights. There ought to be a law against somebody just erecting a tower and rebroadcasting their stations, from Salt Lake City. Should local radio/tv, be just that ? Local. Trust me we are working at correcting that situation. We are working with a local congressman to get some vision on the issue.
On the one hand, one can yap that it’d be easier for Utah just to annex Evanston. Move the state line 20 to 30 miles east and make the state line in Lyman. The problem, is many don’t want to pay Utah’s heavy taxes. Yet the same people, will not openly support and assist someone or an organization trying to bring and create a local media, or for that matter the need to give the boot to Utah. Make this Wyoming. From the Idaho Utah line near Strevelle Idaho to Oregon, from Burley to Caldwell, Utah tried really hard to dominate Idaho’s economy. when the 2002 Winter Olympics came you saw all kinds of urban corporate enterprises start up. Thinking that all that Utah money from those Olympics would bubble up over the border. Guess what? The Olympics completed, those same Enterprises, evaporated like a summer snow storm, in Hazzard. Shortly after and it’s a shame, it took a bunch of small town, short stubborn minds to die off and now Twin Falls, Burley and other towns are IDAHO, and are improving and excelling beyond dreams. The Magic Valley became really MAGIC. Now its Evanston’s turn. I say get Utah out of Wyoming, mostly Evanston. Oh and in closing , want cable TV, and such? It’s a company in UTAH, not Wyoming. Maybe its time for a Wyoming cable/internet/phone company? Yes, HazzCom is working on it.
