- Firefighters make progress on large wildfire in Wyoming - DUBOIS, Wyo. (AP) — More favorable weather conditions helped firefighters battling two large wildfires in western Wyoming. The Lava Mountain Fire in the Shoshone National Forest northwest of Dubois had little growth yesterday (Wednesday) thanks to light winds. The fire has burned about 19 square miles and has more than 760 firefighters battling it at a cost so far of over 7 million dollars to fight. The fire yesterday (Wednesday) burned up to a rural subdivision area with about 290 seasons homes, but firefighters were able to save any homes from being burned. In neighboring Bridger-Teton National Forest, firefighters were able to make progress on fighting a fire that has burned about 37 square miles in Sublette and Teton counties. They increased containment on Wednesday to 15 percent. About 720 firefighters are on the fire. A new lightning-caused fire in Grand Teton National Park is being monitored.
- Poll: over 50 percent in GOP House race undecided - CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A poll shows that over 52 percent of Wyoming Republican voters are undecided in the race for the state’s lone U.S. House seat. The poll was commissioned by the Casper Star-Tribune and Wyoming PBS and was conducted by Pulse Research of Portland, Oregon, during the second week of July. The poll interviewed 300 registered Republicans by telephone. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 5.65 percent. Of those expressing a preference for a candidate, 21 percent favored Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Tim Stubson was next with 8.7 percent, followed by Leland Christensen at 4.1 percent and Darin Smith at 2.5 percent. None of the other Republican candidates in the race received more than 2 percent. The primary is Aug. 16.
- Proposed rule: Wyoming to charge for public records access - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming state government is considering a proposed rule to allow state agencies to charge the public for staff time required to respond to requests to inspect electronic records. The Wyoming Department of Administration and Information released the draft rule this month. It calls for agencies to start billing after the value of staff time spent responding to a request exceeds $180. The Legislature called for the rule to be drafted two years ago. Top legislators say records requests are becoming increasingly burdensome. A panel of legislators will review the rule in coming weeks before it goes to Gov. Matt Mead for his consideration. The Wyoming Press Association and some other groups are opposing the rule, saying it would infringe on the public’s ability to hold government officials accountable.
- Man sentenced for scratching initials into Roosevelt Arch - GARDINER, Mont. (AP) — A Texas man has been sentenced to three days in jail and ordered to pay $250 in restitution for carving his initials into the iconic Roosevelt Arch at the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Park officials say a visitor spotted 26-year-old Dakota D. Tipton of Joshua, Texas, scratching the initials “DDT” into the keystone above a small walkway arch on one side of the larger arch on June 10. Tipton appeared via phone for sentencing Tuesday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Carman in Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming. The U.S. Marshal’s Service will determine where Tipton will serve his sentence. President Theodore Roosevelt laid the cornerstone to the 50-foot-tall arch in April 1903. The inscription on top reads: “For the benefit and enjoyment of the people.”
- Investigators: Grand Teton employee dorm fire was suicide - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Investigators have determined that a man set a fire at an employee dormitory in Grand Teton National Park a year ago in an act of suicide. The fire at Colter Bay last July killed 28-year-old Anthony Graviano and slightly injured four others. Federal officials released an investigation report Wednesday in response to a records request submitted by The Associated Press. The report says the Teton County Coroner’s Office ruled the manner of death suicide. The coroner’s office determined severe burns, smoke inhalation, carbon monoxide poisoning and alcohol intoxication contributed to Graviano’s death. Graviano was alone in the dorm room. Investigators found a lighter on the floor and a can that contained a flammable liquid that spilled under a bed. The fire displaced about 70 dorm residents.
- Hundreds attend UW budget town hall - LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — As the University of Wyoming scours its budget for places to cut expenses, one idea that will be looked at is hiring private contractors for non-academic work, such as landscaping. Michael Pishko is dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the university in Laramie. Pishko says a university’s core mission is teaching, research and service to the state, not plumbing or landscaping. Pishko says third-party services are regularly used at other universities. UW President Laurie Nichols said the idea will be analyzed once other, more pressing matters have been attended. Hundreds of faculty and staff attended a town hall meeting Tuesday that Nichols called to provide information about the budget cuts that have occurred and are planned for in the future.
