Stio and Made have ‘sideline style’

Do you have a Stio men’s Skycrest Snap Shirt or one of Made’s Tetons-inspired needlepoint card wallets? According to those are “sideline chic” accoutrements. “Thanks to big U.S. names in the world of snowsports these days — think Mikaela Shiffrin, Chloe Kim, Bryce Bennet and Jessie Diggins — Americans have something to cheer about on the World Cup sidelines,” it said. “And now that multiple world-class skiing events, like the women’s Alpine World Cup in Killington and the cross country 2020 Minneapolis World Cup are hosted on home soil ... the time to don those Team USA hats and patriotic colors is now.”

Unemployment plunges

What a difference a month makes. Teton County’s unemployment rate in December dropped 45% below November’s rate, according to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. “Most county unemployment rates changed very little from November to December,” the department’s Research and Planning Section said in a press release. “Teton County was the exception. Its unemployment rate fell from 5.2% in November to 2.9% in December as the winter tourism season got into full swing.” Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate held steady from November to December at 3.7%, slightly above the U.S. rate of 3.5%, the press release said.

Editors note: The Cowork Space item was amended to show a correct new drop-in rate.
