- Close calls illustrate Fremont fire danger - RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Someone flicked a cigarette butt into a tree line last weekend at Grannier Meadows, nearly sparking a major fire in Shoshone National Forest. Flames grew and started to lick at a tree before alert Forest Service workers put it out. The Riverton Ranger reports (http://bit.ly/1nNxgYm) the workers found the cigarette butt at the fire’s origin, among pine needles and duff. The incident at a camping ground south of Louis Lake was just one of many involving fire in the Shoshone Forest in Fremont County this summer. Forest district manager Steve Schacht says crews have been dousing 10 to 15 improperly extinguished campfires every weekend. That’s a problem, given that there are about 400 campsites to monitor throughout the Loop Road complex in the Southern Wind Rivers.
- Grill suspected in fire that damaged Riverton home - RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — A propane grill may be to blame for a fire that heavily damaged a Riverton home. The Riverton Ranger reports (http://bit.ly/1koDApR ) that no one was injured in the fire last weekend. Officials believe the fire began near a propane grill on the back deck of the split-level home. The fire spread inside, covered the rear of the house and reached the garage and attic. Riverton Volunteer Fire Department chief Mike Hutchison said the kitchen and dining room areas were heavily damaged, and the entire home was impacted by smoke and heat. A resident who was home at the time of the fire escaped unharmed.
- Teton County will hire temporary housing director - JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Teton County Housing Authority will hire an interim replacement for its outgoing leader rather than seek a permanent replacement. The Jackson Hole Daily (http://bit.ly/1oe9waY ) reported Thursday that authority board members are concerned the job description could change since the county is rewriting county planning rules. Residents are also in the middle of discussing the future of public housing there. A task force looking at how to create more workforce housing is expected to release its plan in late August. Christine Walker announced earlier this month that she was resigning as the authority’s executive director. She could remain on a contract basis to manage the construction of a new 66-unit affordable housing project, the biggest in the county’s history. The authority is seeking a $700,000 federal grant for the project.
- Resolution near in nose assault - CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A lawsuit stemming from an assault that cost a Cody man part of his nose is close to being resolved. The Cody Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/1pIDYf0 ) that a trial date has been vacated for Brent Coffin, accused of aggravated assault and battery. Coffin’s attorney, Nicholas Carter, said in court papers that he believes a resolution to the lawsuit has been reached. Coffin was arrested after he allegedly bit off part of David Hodson-Eckert’s nose during a fight at the Silver Dollar Bar in July 2013. Court papers say Hodson-Eckert and others were trying to calm Coffin after he became angry that the men’s room at the bar had run out of paper towels.
- Cloud Peak Energy posts $2.1 million loss - GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Cloud Peak Energy, which operates only in the Powder River Basin, has posted a $2.1 million loss in the second quarter of 2014, compared to a $4.1 million gain for the same period last year. The Gillette News Record reports (http://bit.ly/1zzC7QO ) that Cloud Peak, like other mining operations in the basin, has been affected by rail service disruptions. That’s what Cloud Peak president and CEO Colin Marshall said during an earnings conference call this week. He said that some 20.6 million tons of coal were affected by rail delays. Marshall said that Cloud Peak reduced its costs per ton of coal, compared to 2013, with higher sales prices and by servicing equipment in-house rather than contracting the work.
- Stolen WWI gas mask found in Rapid City pawn shop - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A World War I gas mask stolen nearly 100 years ago from the Wyoming State Capitol is back home after ending up in a South Dakota pawn shop. The Wyoming State Museum announced its return Wednesday. The mask and other artifacts were brought back to the United States by Sgt. Robert Pennewill after the war. The collection was purchased in 1919 by entrepreneur William Coe, who donated it to Wyoming. Many of the items were stolen from an exhibit at the Capitol in 1920. Earlier this year, the museum received a tip that a mask being sold online by the Presidential Pawn shop in Rapid City, South Dakota looked like the one taken from Wyoming. The shop donated it to the state.
