Glenrockian artist and all around incredible woman, Ginny Butcher, sought out to make some of her dreams come true, and she did... with a little paint, a blank canvas, a vision and a brush.

During the first and second week of August Butcher hosted a gathering of artists at Thistle Hollow, providing a workshop for the artists, on Plein Air Art.

On Tuesday morning, August 9th Butcher led the way for the artists up Boxelder road in the area of the Grant Ranch, and Turtle Rock Ranch.

Supreme Court says rapist will spend life in prison

by Bill McCarthy

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Supreme Court said today a 54-year-old rapist will spend the rest of his life in prison. Warren W. Rathbun, who had two prior first-degree sexual assault convictions, tried to kidnap a woman in a parking garage east of the state Capitol in Cheyenne. Rathbun, who is incarcerated now, had been out of prison about two weeks before he punched the woman in August 2009. He ran when the woman screamed. She was the third woman he had approached in the parking garage that day, supposedly seeking directions. Rathburn had been held for more than 19 years in the Wyoming State Penitentiary for firstdegree sexual assault. He had first-degree sexual assault convictions in 1989 and 1990. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle

reported during Rathburn’s sentencing that Laramie County District Attorney Scott Homar argued for the life sentence. Rathbun had a “long criminal career” that began in 1977. Rathbun has spent three to five years out of incarceration in 30 years and tried to reentered society five or six times, Homar said. In his appeal, Rathbun argued that an attempted kidnapping charge amounted to double jeopardy. Rathbun had been sentenced to six months for battery of the woman after a circuit court judge said there was not enough evidence to warrant a felony kidnapping charge. Homar, however, filed the felony charge a second time based on new evidence. The Supreme Court said that battery and kidnapping are different crimes. He also unsuccessfully argued that the judge used the wrong penalty range when sentencing him.

Mustangs: Myth & Manipulation in the American West [This article was originally published in The Progressive Rancher Magazine, and was sent as a response to Time Magazine after their publication of a biased and inaccurate article - Billionaire Pickens' Wife Battles for Wild-Horse Sanctuary - TIME] By Linda Bunch & Becky Lisle Since its passage in 1971, the Wild Horse & Burro Act and the animals it protects have become a powder-keg in the West, generating a great deal of passion from various sides of what has become a volatile and highly polarized issue. Unfortunately, but probably not surprising, misrepresentations and distortions of truth have become standard throughout the entire debacle because of mustang advocacy groups' perception and very vocal, wel¬lorchestrated, and well-financed campaign to the effect that great cruelties and injustices are suffered by the mustangs at the hands of the BLM and public land users. As area rancher and neighbor of the Mustang Monument, Hank Vogler was heard to

quip when quoting Wyatt Earp: "If the truth gets in the way of legend, print the legend!" Some of the misinformation, circulated widely and without discretion as truth, is so outlandish that long-time wild horse advocate and activist Willis Lamm was compelled to write an article with the intention of distinguishing true advocates from fringe groups. He noted that the wild horse advocacy movement has lost much credibility in recent years because of what he referred to as the Hysteria Corps, laptop experts, and self promoters. Of the Hysteria Corps, Lamm stated: (they) "are addicted to sensationalism. They are invested in bizarre, fantastic stories such as truckloads of horses disappearing in the night, BLM

running horses off cliffs and a host of other ludicrous concoctions. " Lamm explained about the laptop experts that "anyone with basic internet savvy can start a web page or a blog and portray himself or herself as a journalist and/or expert in any subject," and of the self-promoters, "there are a few individuals who see the cause as a means to increase their own esteem, to sell something and/or to collect money. Oftentimes the self promoters will present themselves as experts, in some instances offering credentials that they don't actually have." The ever-present theme is that greed of the natural resource industry is the underlying reason for mustang removal, and the rallying cry of mustang advocacy groups is "let them run free." Some groups go as far as to sugcontinued on page 6

by Mike Pyatt Most of my readers should recall those crazy mirrors at the fair or carnival that distort your image to appear very thin and elongated or wide as a barn and squatty looking. Fortunately, you knew it wasn’t how you actually appeared-merely a “trick of the mirror”. That was for fun. Consider this: we cannot see our face. With the possible exception of staring down either side of our proboscis, depending on its size, absent the aid of a mirror or similar object that casts a reflection, we’re limited to view the frontal part of our body, and a small portion of the back of our limbs. Not our face. We must rely on a mirror or someone else to describe our visage, or what they think we “look like” in a facile manner. Even a quick survey at our own hand can merely estimate the curve of our face, the soft or rough lines of our cheek or brow, or plumb the depth of the inset of our eye socket, for example. But such a facial scan is but an incomplete picture. A close, but slightly myopic, friend of mine from my Hoosier State insists, every time we reunite, that I haven’t changed since high school. He is generally

not prone to flattery. His assessment compels me to compare my vintage high school photo to any mirror in the house. The “mirror screams back loudly”. The unvarnished truth is now apparent. My friend surely meant that those who knew me back then may recognize me from my basic features that haven’t changed drastically over the years. Our 50th high school reunion in 2012 will test that theory. Not surprisingly, we who have resisted “wrinkle removers”, “face lifts” or “laser surgery” that promote an elusive “fountain of youth” look, know they are nothing more than “quick fixes”, or worse over time. To test my skepticism, try applying one of those “wrinkle removers” to a raisin. One Hollywood starlet has had so many facelifts, her knees are now on the back of her neck. Genetics play a major role in our predominant endomorphic, ectomorphic, or mesomorphic physique. For the most part we will drag that basic frame to our grave. For my male counterparts who are proud members of the “bald eagles club” know that the paucity of hair is primarily the work of genetics. Next month will mark my 67th birthday, and, though my crop is graying, and cut short, with minor revisions, the original version is intact. No bragging rights. Just thankful each time the brush runs through it. Some of us still use hair gel, while others opted for “mop and glow” or wear a “rug”. Although it is unlikely that many covet baldness, more are even less inclined to wear a hair-piece that is

about as undetectable as a 3 year old in a candy store. Gravity will have its way with all of us sooner or later. It’s only a matter of time. For those inclined to “remodel” the “old kisser”, most everything below the neck line slipped long ago. In comparing the two, it is a confusing picture. “No Speedos,” please! And thongs should be worn only on the feet. Vanity has infected the entire race. Some more than others. To that degree most of us compensate for that aging process. Your’s truly follows an almost obsessive work-out regimen to mitigate the ravenous effects on the aging body. There’s nothing funnier or sadder than an aging person of either gender dressing like their offspring. Compensation masquerades itself in many forms. It is, in fact, a commendable trait to look one’s best. That trait has fallen on hard times. When’s the last time you attended a wedding or funeral? Sandals, coveralls and bare midriff? Get the drift? The line betwixt “looking one’s best” and trying to “fool the mirror” is a fine one indeed. “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” That famous phrase uttered by the furious, wicked witch in the 1812 Brothers Grimm, “Snow White“, is a question better left to the witch. What do you see? “The Mirror Tells the Tale!” What do you think?

Home repairs for when the kids head Draft environmental impact stateNEWS FROM THE NEST back to school ment for Gateway West Transmission Line available for public review Laramie, Wyo., company creates Drug smuggler fails in attempt program for military mental to deliver marijuana load health therapy

(ARA) - As your family heads back to school, take some time to complete a few simple home repairs. Doing your "home"-work projects now will allow you to spend more time with your family and less time fixing, cleaning and repairing things this fall.

Get outside for some yard work After a summer full of outdoor fun, it's time to tidy the yard before winter comes. Clean and safely place any outdoor furniture in storage. Once the furniture is put away, give your deck or patio a good power washing. Bring your indoor plants back inside and prune your trees and shrubs to encourage healthy growth. You should also remove any leaves or debris from your gutters to avoid clogs or other drainage issues. Inspect the driveway While you're outside, check your driveway and patch any cracks or potholes that may have resulted from the summer heat. You may also want to consider

resealing your driveway in the fall to keep it smooth and even all year long. Sealing your driveway will also protect it from any winter snow or ice damage.

Organize your garage Fall is an ideal time to clean the garage and clear out any unwanted items your family has collected over the summer. Invest in a good storage system that will keep you organized, and clear pathways around vehicles and doors. Move your rake or leaf blower to the front of the garage and consider placing holiday or winter items in an accessible spot for the coming season.

Install a remote thermostat With the kids back in school, your home may now be unoccupied for a large portion of the day. Lowering your thermostat while the family's away can provide substantial cost savings. A programmable thermostat will allow you to create custom temperature settings for the hours you are home and away. Some

models, like the AccuLink(TM) Remote Thermostat from American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning, allow you to set and control your home's temperature remotely using most Web-enabled cellphones and computers.

Check and seal your windows Proper insulation will not only keep your family comfortable, but it may also help to improve the overall energy efficiency of your home. Air drafts are often easy to spot. First, make sure your windows are tightly shut. Then, feel around the edges of your windows for air leaks. If you feel a draft, you can easily seal the leaks with do-it-yourself caulk or weatherstripping. Seasonal maintenance will help to protect your home and prepare it for winter. With a little effort this fall, your "home"-work will be sure to make the grade.

A draft environmental impact statement (EIS) analyzing a proposed electric transmission line between Wyoming and Idaho has been released by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for public review and comment. The public has until Oct. 28 to review and comment on the draft EIS. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a notice of availability of the document on July 29 which started the comment period. This project is jointly proposed by Idaho Power and Rocky Mountain Power, and would result in construction of nearly 1,100 miles of high voltage transmission lines across southern Wyoming and southern Idaho. The project proponents have applied to the BLM and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) for right of way grants to construct, operate and maintain transmission lines from the proposed Windstar substation near Glenrock, Wyo. to the proposed Hemingway substation near Melba, Idaho, approximately 20 miles southwest of Boise. Construction of Gateway West would add 3,000 megawatts (MW) of transmission capacity. The transmission line will serve present and future needs of customers, enhance electric system reliability and transmit electricity generated from new and existing resources, including wind.

The BLM is the lead federal agency for the National Environmental Policy Act process for this project, and is working with cooperating agencies including the USFS; National Park Service; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; Bureau of Indian Affairs; states of Idaho and Wyoming, including the Idaho Army National Guard; Cassia, Power, and Twin Falls counties in Idaho; Carbon, Lincoln, and Sweetwater counties in Wyoming; the SaratogaEncampment-Riverside and

Medicine Bow conservation districts in Wyoming; and the City of Kuna, Idaho.

The BLM, local, and state cooperators have worked together to develop a range of reasonable alternatives to this proposed action that will be discussed during public information meetings. Those meetings are planned for: Idaho – Boise, Kuna, Murphy, Melba, Mountain Home, Twin Falls, Burley, Almo, Fort Hall, Montpelier, American Falls and Pocatello; Wyoming Kemmerer, Rock Springs, Rawlins, and Douglas; and Jackpot, Nev. Specific dates for meetings will be announced at least two weeks in advance. All meetings will be from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Fish and Wildlife Service had listed the Preble’s meadow jumping mouse for protections in Colorado in 2008 that it felt were unneeded in Wyoming.

Cowboy Poet TJ Casey

I’ll Ride I’ll ride across the prairies; I’ll ride where no man goes. I’ll ride to destinations; thru rain and sun and snow. I’ll ride atop the mountains; to the valley far below. I’ll ride across the nation; Wyoming’s where I’ll go. I’ll ride my faithful pony across the great divide. I’ll ride the lonesome trail; on down the other side. I’ll ride until I’m feeble and the last coyote’s cried; then when I’m called up yonder, you can bet your boots I’ll ride.

I’ll ride to gather cattle across this western land. I’ll ride south from the Yellowstone; to the flowin’ Rio Grande. I’ll ride across the desert amidst the dunes of sand. I’ll ride to destinations; where a cowboy makes a stand. I’ll ride through grassy meadows; where the wild flowers bloom. I’ll ride the western prairies; where a man has lots of room. I’ll ride my faithful pony where I hear the thunder boom. I’ll ride across this nation; where the highest mountains loom.

A “Pinch” of Open Range Magazine’s Bunkhouse Recipes Ranch Pickles

Fill a large jar (about one gallon) with small to medium cucumbers. Add two tablespoons of salt, and a large bunch of dill. Fill the jar with boiling water, put the lid on, and set in the sun for about two weeks. After the pickles were gone, the cook would sometimes add some hard boiled eggs to the pickle juice and let it set for a week or so, and offer the cowboys another treat. -Legends of America MUSTANGS, from page 1 gest that all captive mustangs be returned to the range, regardless of the ecological disaster it would create. In Australia, pressure from activist groups and the resulting "let them run free" policy has resulted in a monumental crisis with both feral horses and feral camels. The Australian feral horse population is estimated to be as many as 400,000, and the feral camel population is well over 1,000,000. Both species are classified as pests in Australia because of not only their devastating environmental impact, but also the destruction to private property and safety risks they pose to people. Thousands of feral horses and camels must be regularly, systematically gunned down by shooters hired by the Australian government. Like Don Quixote fighting windmills, the misdirected efforts of the Hysteria Corps undermine what real progress could be made in viable, holistic solutions that include mustangs as part of the rangeland ecosystem. The radical mustang advocacy camp's most common general fallacies are listed below, followed by rebuttals. Mustangs are native to North America: Ted Williams of Audubon Magazine wrote: "The argument that equids are "native" to this continent because their progenitors were present during the Pleistocene -a mantra from the wild-horse lobby-makes as much sense as claiming that elephants are native because woolly mammoths were here during the same

period. Roughly 10,000 years after the extinction of North American horses, Spanish explorers introduced a larger domesticated species. But the continent's plant communities, having coevolved with ungulates that had cloven hooves and lacked upper teeth, were ill-equipped to handle solid hooves and meshing incisors. Result: ecological havoc. Another mantra from the wild-horse lobby is that the "mustangs" extant in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming are closely related to animals unleashed by the conquistadores. They are not; they are mongrels-a genetic morass of breeds issuing mostly from recently escaped or discarded livestock." Mustangs were once prolific in the American West: Another myth perpetuated by wild horse advocates is that wild horses dominated the landscape of the inland West much like the buffalo herds of the Great Plains. In Peter Skene Ogden's Snake Country Journals which are a daily diary of his explorations of the northern Great Basin from 1827-1829, no mention is made of herds of wild horses although he frequently refers to the lack of game and the necessity to kill their own horses and mules for food. The theft of their horses by the Indians was a constant problem and the source of most of the trapper-Native American hostility. Logic dictates that if the indigenous inhabitants of the area had access to beautiful, shiny wild and free mustangs, they wouldn't brave the powder and ball of the fur trappers in order to

acquire one of their weakened, grass-deprived mounts which in Ogden's words were "of questionable quality". Mustangs are going extinct: The BLM states: "the current on-therange population of wild horses and burros (approximately 38,500) is greater than the number found roaming in (the year the Wild Horse & Burro Act was enacted) 1971 (about 25,300). The BLM is seeking to achieve the appropriate management level of 26,600 wild horses and burros on Western public rangelands, or nearly 12,000 fewer than the current West-wide population." Mustangs are being removed from the range to make room for cattle: The BLM states: The removal of wild horses and burros from public rangelands is carried out to ensure rangeland health, in accordance with land-use plans that are developed in an open, public process. These land-use plans are the means by which the BLM carries out its core mission, which is to manage the land for multiple uses while protecting the land's resources. Authorized livestock grazing on BLM-managed land has declined by nearly 50 percent since the 1940s; actual (as distinguished from authorized) livestock grazing on public rangelands has declined by 30 percent since 1971. The BLM utilizes cruel gathering and handling practices: The BLM states: Two reports issued in the fall of 2010 - one by four independent, credentialed equine professionals and one by the Interior Department's Office of Inspector General - found, without any ideological or political

bias, that the BLM's gathers of wild horses are conducted in a humane manner. The Inspector General determined that the BLM's gathers are "justified" and reported that the agency "is doing its best to perform a very difficult job." Member of the Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Committee, Dr. Boyd Spratling, stated that the mortality rate directly from gathering and transport is 1%. Despite such data and the expert opinions solicited in the effort to ensure unbiased, objective results, the Hysteria Corps has accused the BLM of an elaborate "whitewash" scheme. Mustangs are sent to slaughter: While the Wild Horse & Burro Act states: "The Secretary shall cause additional excess wild free-roaming horses and burros for which an adoption demand by qualified individuals does not exist to be destroyed in the most humane and cost efficient manner possible," it has become the policy of the BLM to simply ignore this, and instead house mustangs for decades at taxpayer expense. Bob Abbey was quoted as saying that the options of slaughter or even euthanasia of excess mustangs are "off the table." Thus, the BLM has actually been found by the Government Accountability Office to be in "non-compliance" with law. Enter Madeleine Pickens, whose highly- publicized eco-sanctuary in Elko County, NV, is touted by Pickens herself as being a "forever home" for mustangs, and also able to save the taxpayer money. In early June 2011, Pickens turned out 500 horses on her property and stated on

It needs to be strongly emphasized that the wild Paiute horses that she acquired are not "mustangs," as they were not owned by the BLM, and thus, by the American taxpayer. Pickens' acquisition of these horses is not saving the taxpayers a dime-the horses were privately owned by the Paiute tribe and were being disposed of in a manner entirely consistent with sound management practices of private property. She, or rather her "agents", simply placed the highest bids. If Pickens wants to run a rescue for privately owned horses on her private property, which is totally within her rights, her ranch should be promoted as such. Calling wild Paiute horses "mustangs" is intentionally misleading, but is par for the course considering the liberties Pickens has taken with her Native American persona. The National Tribal Horse Coalition actually publicly protested Pickens' use of the Native American image and cultural heritage, specifically for her 2011 Rose Bowl Parade appearance. Their statement reads as follows: "The NTHC is opposed to animal rights groups like the Madeleine Pickens Wild Mustang Foundation who have freely used the symbolism of the North American Indians and horses to promote agendas in direct opposition to the tribes' position, this float is a perfect example of the romanticism affiliated with the North American Indians and their horses, therefore, the NTHC calls on the leadership of the Rose Bowl Parade and any and all other decision makers to prevent this float from being in the parade as it is an abuse of the reputation of the North American Indian." Pickens does intend to acquire actual mustangs and return them to nature, and while this fans the flames of romanticism, the truth is that forcing horses to revert to foraging after having been handfed in captivity for years does not do the horses any favorsespecially when differences in climate are taken into consideration. The often harsh winter conditions of Pickens' property are a stark contrast to the mild winters of the BLM holding facility in Palomino Valley north of Reno. Continued on page 7

tional Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA). All such environmental documents require a period for public review and comment before being finalized. Existing law would need to be changed. The BLM does not have the legal authority to reimburse a private party for grazing titled horses (i.e., formerly government-owned horses now privately held) on either public or deeded land; reimburse a private party to graze untitled (that is, still government-owned) wild horses on public lands; or manage wild horses on public lands outside Herd Areas that were legislatively created in 1971. To ensure the American taxpayer receives fair value, the Saving America's Mustangs Foundation would need to submit a formal proposal in response to a BLM solicitation that would be open to the public for private-partner preserves. The BLM is developing such a solicitation. The BLM is concerned that in some of the areas proposed for the Nevada sanctuary, forage and water exist to support a maximum of 970 wild horses, far below the 10,000 the Foundation has indicated it would like to support. In spite of such information, her website states: "The stocking level of horses will be phased in over time, starting with about 10,000 animals and increasing about 4,000 animals per year until the appropriate stocking rate is reached. This phase-in of stocking is necessary for additional forage production projects to come on line. The maximum number of horses the ranch can support is near 30,000. Rumor has it that in addition to the 500 mares and foals "rescued" thus far, Pickens has also purchased or adopted a number of stallions. Pickens' website states that "From 2001 to 2008, the BLM removed more than 79,000 wild horses and burros from their rangelands while placing only 47,000 into private care through adoption." When the very essence of her eco-sanctuary plan is to help manage the excess mustangs, why, then, would Pickens be purchasing breeding

A BLM statement also says: "Mrs. Pickens' plan proposes to take the animals from private pastures and facilities and instead graze them on private and public lands on a large ranch in Nevada. However, current Federal law prohibits the BLM from using allotments associated

the fence from Pickens' Paiute mares. Not much can stand in the way of the call of nature, not even a barbed wire fence. Then there is the issue of gates which are frequently left open intentionally or "accidentally" by other users of the public lands. But perhaps keeping her horses contained isn't really Pickens' intention at all, and her ranch is just the gateway to the Hysteria Corps dream come true: letting the mustangs run free. (Thank you to Demar Dahl, Elko county rancher and Elko County Commissioner, Sue Wallis, Wyoming rancher, legislator, and United Horsemen vice-president, and many others who have offered input and encouragement to move forward.)

One of the pressing questions regarding the Pickens property and intentions for it is: "how will she keep 'her' horses (mustangs and otherwise) separate from mustangs already present in the area?" Her website states: "The Ranch boundary is securely fenced. Fenced railroad & highway right-of-ways are major portions of the boundary. The fenced boundary in the high country would not be pressured by large numbers of horses. The high country boundary fences may be damaged as a result of winter snow and ice, but would be inspected and repaired prior to the horses returning to the high country each season. Agreements would be honored to ensure a good neighbor policy. Cattleguards would be installed on all roads that access through the ranch boundary."

According to a representative of the sale yard where the horses were purchased, the horses actually came from multiple private (read: not BLM) sellers over a period of time. The horses were taken to a feedlot as the herd was gradually accumulated from September to December 2010.

By implementing a few recycling tactics across your home and encouraging the same behaviors in the classroom, you can turn your student into a green "hero" and help her embrace earth-friendly habits. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, only 30 percent of consumer waste is recycled each year. This presents a great opportunity for children to use their green thumbs and take part in saving the planet. Here are a few ways to get your children started:

1. Give paper some TLC Paper accounts for as much as 50 percent of landfill space. Rather than add to this waste, implement a designated paper recycling bin that can be easily accessed where you tend to use paper most in the home or in the classroom. Or, better still, put your paper products to good use by challenging your kids or students to create paper craft projects. Then encourage them to recycle any scraps when finished. 2. Get crafty In addition to paper products, all kinds of waste can be "upcycled" into useful or decorative items. For example, a painted egg carton can make a unique storage box for small objects like beads or paper clips and tissue paper

glued to a clean spaghetti sauce jar makes for an attractive vase. The possibilities are endless, so you'll not only be saving trash from a landfill, you'll be inspiring creativity. 3. Better together Recycling is often more effective when multiple people take part. Teachers can set a goal for their classroom, school or even individual students to recycle a specified amount of paper, plastics, aluminum and glass before the end of the school year. Parents can support this effort by encouraging children to not only recycle at home, but to also take recyclable materials into the classroom to participate in the school's project.

4. Adopt a program Encouraging your children to take part in a recycling-focused program can develop valuable habits while encouraging some fun. One such program is the Elmer's Glue Crew Recycling Program, a classroom resource designed to teach children how they can help save the planet, gives recycling-related lesson plans as well as fun and engaging projects for their students. Throughout the year, the classroom or school collects empty glue bottles and glue sticks to be recycled through TerraCycle. For additional information on the Elmer's program, visit ElmersGlueCrew.com and Facebook.com/GlueCrew.
