   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
The diet in today’s edition of the Joke of the Day is pretty crumby!


"The revelation of thought takes men out of servitude into freedom."

~Emerson (1803-1882)


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
Federal law requires coal companies to set aside money to reclaim the land after a mine is closed down. Wyoming has allowed coal companies to self-bond… which is similar to writing an IOU instead of actually putting money aside. Several major coal companies have declared bankruptcy, and there are concerns that the cost of reclaiming the mines will fall onto taxpayers.   Should Wyoming stop its self-bonding policy?



Lawmakers in New York are considering a ban on declawing cats. The practice is already outlawed in Los Angeles and several European countries. Supporters of the ban say it is unnecessary and cruel. Opponents say declawing can prevent euthanasia for cats with destructive scratching behavior.   Should declawing cats be banned?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Wyoming class sizes for Kindergarten through 3rd grade are set at 16 students per teacher. Some state lawmakers are considering increasing the class sizes to 20 or 24 students per teacher, as a way to save money.  Should class sizes for the lower grades be increased?

Yes, increase the class sizes
30.4%

No, do not increase the class sizes
69.6%

State lawmakers are considering raising taxes on the wind industry, to make up for declining revenues from coal and other minerals. The money would go towards school construction and maintenance. Representatives of the wind industry say tax hikes would stifle development.   Should taxes on wind power be raised?

Yes, raise taxes on wind energy
55.6%

No, do not raise taxes on wind energy
44.4%
