- Labor Department picks Utah company to run Job Corps Center - RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Labor has awarded a five-year, $41 million contract for operation of the Wind River Job Corps Center to a Utah-based management company. Management and Training Corporation will operate the Riverton-based center, which is scheduled to open this summer. The company operates 21 Job Corps centers nationwide. The center will be able to serve about 260 residential students and 40 off campus students. There will be energy, health and nursing courses, accounting and heavy truck driving. The center is part of a national training and employment program administered by the federal government to reduce employment barriers faced by disadvantaged young people ages 16 to 24. Operators of the facility will be expected to handle administration, training, security and other services.
- Wyoming coal mine profits fall in 1st quarter - CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Only one of the four major coal companies working in the Powder River Basin in northeast Wyoming posted a profit in the first quarter of this year. Industry experts say plummeting natural gas prices are prompting utilities to accelerate their movement away from coal. Industry analyst Hans Daniels said power plant conversions to natural gas cost coal companies 11.7 million tons in lost demand during February. Of that, 5.5 million lost tons came from the Powder River Basin. The challenging environment prompted Peabody Energy to recently declare it was evaluating the financial structure of its U.S. mines. The St. Louis-based firm operates the North Antelope Rochelle Mine south of Gillette.
- Lawmakers nix vague design plans for capitol restoration - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Lawmakers say they need more detailed floor plans for the state Capitol’s restoration before they can sign off. Legislators and Gov. Matt Mead weren’t satisfied with the plans presented to them Tuesday during the Capitol Building Restoration Oversight Group’s meeting. Their refusal to approve the design doesn’t necessarily mean delays for a project that was slated to begin this summer, but does show a growing frustration among lawmakers that more detailed plans haven’t been finished since they voted for the project in 2014. The $292 million project renovates the Capitol building, among other endeavors. Project coordinators plan to have a detailed design ready in 30-45 days. If delayed, the project would lose out on $6 million to $8 million.
- Autopsy planned on human remains found near Casper - CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — An autopsy is planned on human skeletal remains that hikers discovered at the base of Casper Mountain. Natrona County Coroner Connie Jacobson said an autopsy will take place on Thursday. Officials say the remains, discovered Sunday, had likely been in the open for more than a year. Jacobson says there was no obvious cause of death, personal effects found nearby did not contain any identifying information and investigators are still trying to determine the person’s age, height and gender. The coroner’s office plans to take a DNA samples and compare dental records against a database in an effort to identify the person.
- Judge hands man 25-year sentence in Internet sex case - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a California man to 25 years in prison following his guilty plea to attempting to coerce a 13-year-old Laramie County girl he met over the Internet into producing sexually explicit videos. U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson on Tuesday sentenced 24-year-old Christopher Beets of Santa Rosa, California, to 300 months in prison. The judge ordered Beets to register as a sex offender and remain under supervision for life following his release. Police arrested Beets last summer after the Laramie County girl turned to her parents for help after a stranger she encountered on the Internet demanded she produce sexually explicit videos of herself and other children. Federal prosecutor Jim Anderson says Beets had approached several young girls through social media sites.
- Tractor-trailer crushes pickup at landfill; no one injured - POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a tractor-trailer dumping trash at a landfill in Powell tipped over and crushed a man’s pickup, but no injuries were reported. The Park County Sheriff’s Office says 52-year-old Craig Coen pulled his pickup alongside the truck and was getting ready to dump some trash Saturday afternoon when he saw a shadow approaching. He then realized the tractor-trailer was tipping over. Sheriff’s spokesman Lance Mathess said 66-year-old James Haworth, who was operating the larger truck, was trying to dump a load of dirt, gravel and trash from the trailer when the vehicle tipped and crashed down on the pickup. Members of the Powell Volunteer Fire Department and Park County Landfill staff helped sort out the vehicles after the mishap.
