If you use Westover Road to enter or exit the Westover Subdivision, plan on leaving early for your destination. Public Information Officer Joe Lunne contacted the Basinsradio.com early this morning with frustrating information for the public.
Once again a water main break will be closing that section of Westover Road between Oregon Avenue and Highway 50 indefinitely. Traffic flow in the area had already been disrupted as a construction project to prevent the constant breaks was already in progress.

GILLETTE - Wyoming Game and Fish Department game wardens are looking for information about the illegal killing of several big game animals on the Clarkelen Road south of Gillette.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking information on recent poaching activity occurring in the Gillette area. On the evening of September 27 or the early morning hours of September 28, 2013 several big game animals were poached out of season on the Clarkelen Road south of Gillette, Wyoming. Warden Dustin Kirsch had the following to say, “These animals were taken out of season prior to the opening of big game rifle seasons on October 1st. This illegal activity was done with the utter disregard to human safety and took several trophy big game animals from the licensed hunters in Wyoming. These animals would have made great trophies when the 1st of October came around for licensed, law abiding hunters.” Last Updated on Monday, 30 September 2013 12:00Read more: Help Catch Clarkelen Road Poacher

Yesterday Gillette Mayor, Tom Murphy appeared on News Talk 1270 am KIML. Murphy talked about some of the current happenings with the city and also took calls from area listeners. The synchronization of traffic signals in Gillette was one complaint the Mayor responded to. Murphy noted that traffic signals on 2nd street and Highway 59; though in the city limits, are controlled by the state.
“What has happened in the past is that they have set these lights to synchronize and then they just leave them alone. It is my understanding, especially on highway 59, a program should be implemented this spring that they will actually measure traffic in real time and adjust accordingly, and so the complaint of coming through our community and having to stop and start will hopefully not be an issue come this next year. “---Murphy Last Updated on Friday, 27 September 2013 12:31Read more: Mayor Talks Pay Raise Debate, Traffic Flow/Construction Updates and WAM
