  • Supreme Court denies appeal in possession case

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 18, 2023

    The Wyoming Supreme Court has denied a Newcastle man’s appeal against his sentence on possession charges after illegal substances were found in his vehicle during a traffic stop in Crook County. David Garrison pleaded guilty to one count of possession of marijuana as part of a plea deal. He was sentenced by Judge Stuart S. Healy III in November, 2022 to between one and three years in a state penal institution and a fine of $500. On January 3, 2022, a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper initiated a traffic stop on Garrison’s vehicle on Highway 16....

    Meetee*tse annexation approved CODY (WNE) — A proposed annexation that will increase the size of Meetee*tse by more than 70% moved forward last week following a 3-2 vote by the Town Council on May 4. The question of whether to annex 390.7 acres into the town limits proved divisive among council members. Mayor J.W. “Bill” Yetter and council members Eric Scott and Josh Blake voted for the measure, while Corey Guthrie and Dustin Taylor voted against it. Yetter said the annexation would have significant benefits for the town. “The benefit to the tow...

  • Hunter charged with killing grizzly found on North Fork

    Mark Davis and CJ Baker, Powell Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|May 18, 2023

    POWELL — The grizzly bear found dead along the North Fork Highway last week was killed by a Cody area hunter who said he mistook the animal for a black bear, according to court documents. The hunter, Patrick M. Gogerty, reportedly came forward on May 2 — the day after he reportedly shot the bear, and after the bear’s carcass drew widespread public attention. “Gogerty should have turned himself in immediately,” North Cody Game Warden Travis Crane wrote in an affidavit included in court records. Park County Prosecuting Attorney Bryan Skoric charg...

  • Study: Pollution causing Wyoming health issues

    Nicole Pollack, Casper Star-Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|May 18, 2023

    CASPER — Air pollution from oil and gas production is harming Wyomingites’ health, a new study says. Researchers from Boston University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, PSE Healthy Energy and the Environmental Defense Fund compared emissions of a trio of pollutants — nitrogen oxide, ozone and fine particulates — to rates of respiratory and cardiovascular hospitalization and childhood asthma in 2016. Their peer-reviewed analysis, which was published May 8 in the journal Environmental Research: Health, found that oil and gas act...

  • City offers support to daycare

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    The Sundance City Council has pledged support to KidPrints Inc. in an effort to help alleviate a tough financial time for the daycare. As well as paying off the note on the building to avoid an increase in rent, the city has decided to replenish KidPrints's coffers in the amount of $4000. The alternative to this assistance, said Mayor Paul Brooks, is to risk Sundance no longer having daycare facilities available – a service he feels is too important to the community for that to be an option. T...

  • County forgives penalty fees on unpaid taxes

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    Lessons learned and information gathered, the Crook County Commissioners have agreed to waive $1552.78 in penalty fees on personal property tax payments that Black Thunder Oil was not aware were owed. Jeff Waliezer and Roni Steed of Black Thunder approached the commission last month to explain that the company had not received any notice of these taxes until a bill arrived with a ‘past due’ penalty. According to Waliezer, Black Thunder found itself in a messy situation after acquiring the assets of BW Oil, which went bankrupt in 2013. The com...

  • City prepares for new state-mandated training

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    The rules are not yet finalized, so the Sundance City Council is not yet sure who will need to take the new state-mandated training for officers and council members who are involved in handling finances – or what exactly the certification process will involve. “From how I understand it, if you are a council member or appointed and you deal with finances of any sort, you have to go through a training to make sure that your meetings are essentially reported correctly, that you understand how the finances of these organizations work,” said Counc...

  • Commissioners hear concerns over mine plans

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    A planned 317-acre bentonite mine close to Pine Haven has caused raised eyebrows among town residents, two of whom visited the Crook County Commissioners last week to share their concerns. The Keyhole State Project is under the auspices of Black Hills Bentonite LLC and will be situated on land leased from the state. According to the company's permit application to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), 17 homes are located within a mile of the active site, the nearest of which...

The backward and cold spring has delayed dairy operations, although Mr. Linander says if conditions warrant, the station will be opened before that date. Drilling operations will soon begin on Cole Divide, 14 miles from Sundance on the Moorcroft road. A.R.

  • WYDOT reminds residents to keep signs out of rights-of-way and off traffic poles

    May 11, 2023

    The Wyoming Department of Transportation would like to remind residents, businesses and realtors that placing signs along the roadways, on traffic poles or fences along state and federal highways is prohibited. Wyoming statute (W.S. 24-10-104) states that outdoor advertising must meet certain conditions for placement. Placing signs or objects within highway rights-of-way is prohibited, including on right-of-way fencing or on trees, traffic signs or traffic signal poles within the right-of-way. Signs in the rights of way and on traffic poles...

    Black Hills Energy to use Wyodak coal to research hydrogen generation GILLETTE (WNE) — Black Hills Energy will be using Powder River Basin coal to research hydrogen generation. Black Hills Energy was recently awarded a grant from the Wyoming Energy Authority to conduct a feasibility analysis on hydrogen generation using coal from Wyodak Mine. The ongoing research project partners engineers from Black Hills Energy with clean power production experts from Babco*ck & Wilcox Enterprises, or B&W, as well as members of the Chemical and Biomolecular E...

  • State GOP urges districts to adopt 'parental rights' policies

    Maya Shimizu Harris, Casper Star-Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|May 11, 2023

    CASPER — The Wyoming Republican Party is asking local school districts to adopt policies that align with Senate File 117 — a bill proposed during the session this year that’s similar to Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law, and which would have barred classroom instruction about gender identity and sexual orientation in certain grades. Two county parties — Park and Sheridan counties — passed resolutions in April and March, respectively, urging their local districts to adopt policies that align with Senate File 117. The state GOP central...

  • Bill Gates tours Kemmerer plant

    Rana Jones, Kemmerer Gazette Via Wyoming News Exchange|May 11, 2023

    KEMMERER — Microsoft billionaire and TerraPower Chairman Bill Gates toured the Naughton Power Plant in Kemmerer on Friday and saw where TerraPower will build a nuclear reactor before conducting a press conference that afternoon. “Getting things right here will be a big part of how we keep electricity reliable and keep the United States at the forefront of providing energy technology to the entire world,” Gates told locals who packed a room at the Best Western Fossil Country Inn. “The United States has had some challenges with energy securit...

  • City projects begin to ramp up for spring

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    Spring is clearly in the air for the City of Sundance, with much of Tuesday’s council meeting taken up with discussions of work in progress or soon to begin. The council hosted a public hearing for a grant application it intends to submit to WYDOT to fund a new box culvert under 3rd Street. Mayor Paul Brooks explained that the city has been denied on this grant in the past because it had not solicited public input, and is therefore doing so now. No comments or objections were forthcoming from the audience, so the grant application will be m...

  • City anticipates double the liquor licenses New law will eventually increase bar and grill liquor licenses from two to six

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    Thanks to a change in Wyoming law, the City of Sundance will have double the bar and grill liquor licenses within the next couple of months – and triple the current number by 2028. The Wyoming State Legislature passed SF 13 this year: bar and grill liquor license phaseout. The intent was to phase out the current population formulas used to figure out how many licenses a municipality or county can have. The population formulas currently allocate two licenses to Sundance. One of those is in use by Uncle Louie’s Diner, while the other is sti...

  • County considers switch-up of audit process for special district

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 11, 2023

    Every so often, something crops up that leads you to question the way things have always been done. Such was the case last week for the county commissioners, when County Attorney Joe Baron and County Clerk Melissa Jones brought to their attention a quirk in how the county’s audit is set up. Specifically, Crook County Weed & Pest is included as a “component part” of the county’s audit, along with the library and fair. However, said Baron, the latter two entities are considered to be “component parts” because they share in the county’s 12...

    May 11, 2023

  • Courthouse basem*nt to get major overhaul

    Sarah Pridgeon|May 4, 2023

    When the majority of the basem*nt level of the courthouse was taken up by historical artifacts, it wasn't obvious to the beholder just how much space there is available. Now the museum has taken up its new home in Old Stoney and those 10,000 square feet lie empty, it's time for a new lease of life for the county's seat of government. Eventually, the basem*nt floor will allow for more spacious offices and additional storage, as well as an additional – but smaller – community room to provide a m...
