Quoted in the news

Jan 2, 2013 - From staff reports

Our community ... has to pull together and work together to reduce this mortality rate.

-- Fremont County Coroner Ed McAuslan, after announcing that the county was all but certain to break its all-time suicide record in 2012

We rammed this down communities' throats with no time to get their ducks in order. (It would be great) to have the people who build the schools send their kids to the schools.

-- State Sen. Cale Case, R-Lander, on the lack of responsiveness to local concerns shown by state school construction rule-makers

Our students can kind of expect a little bit of a bump, but they're not going to get hit hard all at once. We do all we can to have those keep pace with the increases. We're certainly sensitive to the students and their needs.

-- Central Wyoming College vice president Jason Wood, after the college announced a 4 percent tuition increase

It's pretty exciting. I've been in the business for 40 years, and this is only the second time in my life that I've ever seen a black-footed ferret.

-- Wildlife biologist Barry Betts said, on an apparently successful black-footed ferret colony observed outside captivity in South Dakota, more than 20 years after the animal was saved from extinction through preservation efforts in Wyoming

Most kids I know survive on the breakfasts and lunches here.

-- Tessa Mihelich, Riverton Middle School eighth-grade students, as she helped prepare the bags of food for students who depend on school meals to eat during their Christmas break

Driver inattention or carelessness is something that needs to be addressed and a solution found to prevent future accidents.

-- Gloria Gregory of Riverton, in a letter to the editor on ongoing safety concerns at the intersection of Highway 27/789 and Honor Farm Road north of Riverton

So there hasn't been this sort of doomsday, 'we're going to kill all the wolves,' in fact it appears to me we probably won't even meet the quota we set, which was very conservative.

-- Gov. Matt Mead, on Wyoming's first licensed wolf hunt since the animals were reintroduced to the state in 1996.
