The Laramie Boomerang interviewed UW economist Anne Alexander, who said high fuel prices are not only affecting everyday consumers, but also the cost of goods that are delivered on trucks, which is having a widespread impact. The Casper Star-Tribune (CS-T) also interviewed UW economist Rob Godby for a similar article.
UW’s Wyoming Teacher-Mentor Corps was mentioned in a CS-T article that focused on experts and lawmakers discussing how to fix teacher recruitment and retention as the state faces teacher shortages.
The Boomerang noted that UW, Laramie and the state are putting more of a focus on some of the newest areas of technology that some hope will become a major economic stimulator for the Cowboy State: blockchain and cryptocurrency.
