Wyoming to Breckenridge: "Hands off our logo"by Steven John, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — The cowboy logo at Breckenridge public schools is facing its final roundup. The western Minnesota school district has decided to phase out the logo rather than fight a trademark infringement accusation by the state of Wyoming.
Officials in Cheyenne demanded that Breckenridge no longer use the distinctive bucking horse and rider logo, which is used as a symbol for the state of Wyoming as well as the University of Wyoming Cowboys.
All Things Considered host Steven John talked to Breckenridge superintendent David Pace about the controversy.
