Tom Morton

Hi. I'm the newest member of the K2 Radio news team, which marks the next phase of my three-decade journalism career including reporting for the Casper Star-Tribune from 1992 to 2012. For the past year-and-a-half, I've been taking classes at Casper College including web design, Photoshop, guitar, new media communications, creative writing, field biology, math and Spanish. Before arriving in Wyoming, I worked at papers in Colorado Springs and Beaumont, Texas. My formal education includes earning a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in S. Hamilton, Mass., and a Bachelor of Arts in English Lit from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. I have yet to graduate from the College of Hard Knocks. Avocations and experiences include outdoorsy stuff, traveling by train, tutoring at Casper College's Writing Center, herding a cat named Noir, reading, writing including a couple of published books, acting at Stage III Community Theatre, driving a stock car, dancing, and driving my 1948 MG TC -- "the sports car America loved first." Musical interests range from classical to blues to rock. I fly the flag on my 1919-era house, listen to the Clash, cook, collect antiques, and nurture a curiosity about what's around the next bend. I look forward to reporting again on our wonderful, wild and sometimes wacky Wyoming.

Late Friday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Kelly Rankin approved a protective order that blocks the disclosure of what happens, such as settlement offers, in talks behind closed doors with Hedquist, Patterson, their attorneys and the Wyoming Association of Risk Management (WARM), which is a publicly fund
