Written by Kati Hime, Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine Images by Adria Trembly, Dubois & Levi Hime, Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine I was sitting in the Ford Wyoming Center (previously known as Casper Events Center) in February 2022, watching the Wyoming High School Activities Association’s State Wrestling for the first time.

Looking around me, parents were clad…

There, smack in the heart of the town, is an old-fashioned Penney Store, complete with a basement, a…
