I'll take a thick, juicy, T-bone steak anyday. Kudos for Miss Tanis for going over their and working and living the way they do. And thankyou to the native's for destroying the stranglehold that P.E.T.A had on Miss Tanis . Hopefully she now understands that their is nothing wrong with eating meat, and that she keep's eating it when she is back home. Doubt it, the radical vegetarians will kidnap her again.

since when does a college kid joining the peace corps make the news in a city the size of GR? On WOOD's front page nonetheless.

I think it is nice to see a "good" story for once in the media. Especially in Wyoming. Kudos to Kristen for doing her part to make a difference in the world.

I have more respect for this young woman than any overpaid CEO.
Good job!

I am a former Peace Corp Volunteer who served in Africa. I salute you and am excited to know about another local person in the Peace Corp. It is a great experience that will change your life forever.

Kudos Kristin! I've been following your adventure and the stories you have been sharing. Couldn't be prouder to have you in the Peace Corp. Keep up the great work teaching and learning in South America!

Thank you, Kristen, for taking "time out" of your American way of life to help people in an underdeveloped country. I'm sure that you will learn much more about yourself than just about anywhere else! Keep up the good work.
