On August 13, 2015 the Casper Star Tribune ran a story entitled Natrona County students organize around ditching the dress code.

This is the introduction to a 2015 series on juvenile rights starting with one that happens to be in the news and that appears to be lawful protest through civil disobedience. Here is the story in brief.

It is said that those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. Indeed, they are fated to have history reach like something out of H.P. Lovecraft's nightmares, ensnare them in its tentacles, and drag them to their dooms.

Our lesson for today begins in England, in the time of Elizabeth I. Yet it has implications for us today in Wyoming. At that time, Elizabeth was concerned with King Phillip of Spain. She feared an invasion of Protestant England by that most devout of Catholic kings. So she sent forth “gentlemen adventurers” on English shipbuilding technology. Some she sent to harass Phillip's booty from the New World. Some she sent to found colonies in the new world, in hope of striking it rich as the Spanish had done.

The opponents of the Transfer of Public Lands (TPL) from the federal government to the states use several arguments against the proposal. Two of them are:

  • The states can't manage their public lands.

  • The states will sell off the public lands for development.

Really? Tell that to Adirondack Park in upstate New York.

I discussed a variety of juvenile justice topics with Glenn Woods at the KYDT radio station in Gillette. The station staff was wonderfully friendly, professional and accommodating. Glenn Woods let my Airedale, Lucy right in the broadcast room. I love Wyoming. The interview aired on the same day on KYDT, KVOC, KOYA (SD), KBFS (SD), KPOK (ND). The Bold Republic is also syndicated.

On July 30 the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released an advance-estimate version of its GDP numbers for the second quarter of 2015. For the first time since before the Great Recession it looks like there is some real strength building in the economy. First, the summary from the BEA:

Real gross domestic product -- the value of the production of goods and services in the United States, adjusted for price changes -- increased at an annual rate of 2.3 percent in the second quarter of 2015, according to the "advance" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 0.6 percent (revised). The Bureau emphasized that the second-quarter advance estimate released today is based on source data that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency ... The increase in real GDP in the second quarter reflected positive contributions from personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, state and local government spending, and residential fixed investment that were partly offset by negative contributions from federal government spending, private inventory investment, and nonresidential fixed investment. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.

What do you think?
