Paul Krza

Paul Krza is a longtime Wyoming radio and print journalist and a former editor and columnist on the Casper Star-Tribune. He’s also written for numerous regional and western publications, and now lives in Albuquerque, N.M.

Rock Springs was bursting in 1977 when “60 Minutes” came to town to cover sleaze and alleged corruption. Soon after, top cop Ed Cantrell shot his undercover agent, Mike Rosa, in a police cruiser in front of the Silver Dollar Bar. The crime, the trial and its drama fixed boomtime Wyoming in the national imagination as a new kind of wild West.
