I hate shooting an assignment and thinking you’re absolutely killing it, and then getting to the office and thinking, “where the hell are the awesome pictures I was taking?” S’mores was that assignment. Makes me angry.

Noah Richardson licks his lips as his mother, Sherri Richardson, takes a bite out of the three-year-old’s s’more as they, along with the boy’s sister, Gabrielle, 5, and dad, Shane, take part in Camp Out Under the Stars at Sunset Elementary on April 5, 2011. The event brought together parents and children in an effort to promote writing and reading together, and featured a reading around a campfire, fishing for books and s’mores eating. MOTIONBLURFAIL

It’s windy sometimes.

Claus and his wife, Krystal, and their two young children were home at the time, but other than some shaken nerves nobody was hurt when the large spruce fell. “It sounded like a bomb went off,” said Krystal.

West Park Hospital got some new Chillers.

The units, which supply cold air to the building, were part of  $600,000 project to replace the 35-year-old units that previously cooled the hospital. According to Tim Waldner, West Park’s Director of Plant Operations, the new chillers will be able to provide an extra 100 tons of cooling capacity while using about a third of the electricity, adding that the units will essentially pay for themselves in about four years. Waldner said the units, which are known as magnetic bearing chillers, are the first of their kind to be used in Wyoming, and will offer greater efficiency with lower maintenance costs.
