TOP STORIES:

WYOMING SOLDIER RETURNS

KAYCEE _ When DeMaret Kirtley was last home in July 1950, he posed for a photo. His starched Army uniform hanging from his thin frame, Marston — as his friends and family called him — stood next to his father, the two men staring straight ahead, quintessential Wyoming ranchers. When Marston posed with his mother, he was closer, as warm with her as he was reserved with his dad. In another photograph, he leaned back against the fence of his parents’ porch, his hands in his pockets. He was 20. By Seth Klamann, Casper Star-Tribune. An AP Member Exchange. SENT: 930 words.

HALL OF FAME-BOWLEN

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Before Alzheimer’s forced him to step down several years ago, Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen began his day the same way every day: grabbing two sticks of Big Red gum from the equipment room and then stopping by the training room for updates from head athletic trainer Steve Antonopulos. “Our conversations went from the players’ injuries to the players’ families to his issues,” Antonopulos recalled. “The trusted relationship that we had with each other has been phenomenal.” By Arnie Stapleton.
