Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging Wyoming high school students to apply to be a Senate Page for one of the two summer sessions in Washington, D.C. The deadline for summer applications is March 5.
“The page program provides a front row seat to debates in the Senate. It’s a unique experience for any participant, which they will carry with them forever,” Enzi said. Last Updated on Monday, 24 February 2014 13:11Read more: March 5 deadline for Enzi U.S. Senate Summer 2014 Page Application
LANDER – On December 20, 2013, a Riverton man pled guilty in the Ninth District Circuit Court in Riverton to poaching a buck mule deer in a closed season. The incident occurred on June 28, 2013, near the Honor Farm, east of Riverton.
Jarrod Maloff, 19, of Riverton originally entered a not guilty plea and was scheduled for a jury trial in mid-December. A few days before the trial, Maloff and his attorney reached a plea deal with Deputy County Attorney Oakley. In a change of plea hearing, Judge Roberts sentenced Maloff to $1,000 in fines suspended, $3,000 in restitution, one year of hunting privileges suspended, six months unsupervised probation, and Maloff cannot possess firearms or ammunition or be around anyone that does for six months. In addition, Maloff spent several days in the Fremont County jail after an arrest warrant was served for the illegal take of the deer.

This year all applications must be submitted online by using the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website, wgfd.wyo.gov. The paper application process has been phased out as the online application process has proven to be more efficient and accurate and is easier for hunters to ensure their applications are received in advance of the deadline. It has contributed to a substantial cost savings over the old process. Last Updated on Friday, 21 February 2014 06:13
Beets are not only healthy to eat, but research proves they now can keep you safer on the roads as well. The Wyoming Department of Transportation began using an anti-icing product made from sugar beets to help keep the roads clear in the Sheridan and Buffalo area in 2011 and now are using the product in the entire northeast corner of Wyoming.
Beet juice is a natural product that works well when mixed with liquid salt brine to keep ice from forming on the roads before a storm. It also helps melt snow and ice once they are already on the road. Last Updated on Thursday, 20 February 2014 06:08Read more: WYDOT Uses Beet Juice To Keep NE WYO Roads Clear
