(This week I'm featuring some random close-up photos)

Central Wyoming College campus
The campus has grown considerably in the last 48 years. It now has two dorms, an apartment building, a large fine arts building, the original classroom building (remodeled and expanded) and now attached to the original administration building, large library, student center, book store, gymnasium, small theatre, studios and offices for the Wyoming PBS station, and a new health science building.
Unfortunately, CWC and other educational institutions are currently dealing with massive budget cuts. Governor Mead stated last week that even deeper cuts could occur in all state-funded programs.
Wyoming's economy is heavily dependent on the energy industry (oil, natural gas, and coal), and currently these industries are quite depressed and unemployment is high. We can only hope things will turn around soon, but frankly, the state could be in for some very lean times for several years.
