WyoFile works hard to inform civic discourse around the most persistent and vexing problems facing Wyoming. And if the headline in this photo can be believed, we can cross first amendment threats off our coverage list. This Constitutionally precocious little girl (or is it bear cub?) has that one solved.

Chris Dickey and his daughter may not have actually made the state’s honor roll, but they did make use of the WyoFile photo booth on Jackson Town Square during Old Bills fun run on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Old Bill’s Fun Run itself, however, has been honored far and wide. The first-of-it’s-kind fundraiser turns out the Teton County community to support local nonprofits while raising matching funds to multiply the donations that each organizations receives. Before this year’s iteration the annual event had “brought an astounding $146 million philanthropic dollars to our community,” according to the organization’s website. The model has been such a success that it’s spawned dozens of “Baby Bills” — copycat community fundraisers — around the world.
