WYOMING WILL REAP MANY BENEFITS OF A $3.5 BILLION INVESTMENT IN WIND POWER GENERATION BY ROCKY MOUNTAIN POWER IN THE NEXT THREE YEARS.

COMPANY SPOKESMAN DAVE ESKELSEN SAID THURSDAY THE SALT LAKE CITY-BASED COMPANY WILL FILE REGULATORY PAPERWORK IN WYOMING, UTAH AND IDAHO TODAY FOR A PLAN TO EXPAND THE AMOUNT OF POWER FROM WIND BY 2020.

ESKELSEN SAID THE BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS WILL BE LONG TERM.

THE PROJECT, CALLED ENERGY VISION 2020 HAS THREE PHASES TO CONTROL COSTS.
THE TRANSMISSION PROJECT WOULD EXTEND FROM A SUBSTATION IN THE SHIRLEY BASIN TO A SUBSTATION NEAR THE JIM BRIDGER POWER PLANT EAST OF ROCK SPRINGS

THE TIMING IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE FEDERAL PRODUCTION TAX CREDITS FOR WIND ENERGY WILL EXPIRE IN 2020.

THE PROJECTS ARE EXPECTED TO CREATE BETWEEN 1,100 AND 1,600 CONSTRUCTION JOBS IN WYOMING, AND ADD ABOUT $120 MILLION IN TAX REVENUE FROM CONSTRUCTION.

EVERYONE LOVES A FOURTH OF JULY COOKOUT, BUT IT'S IMPORTANT TO TAKE SOME PRECAUTIONS SO FOOD POISONING DOESN'T RUIN YOUR PICNIC.

CHEYENNE-LARAMIE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT DEPUTY DIRECTOR GARY HICKMAN SAYS THE BEST THING PEOPLE CAN DO IS KEEP HOT FOODS HOT AND COLD FOODS COLD.

"BASICALLY WHAT THAT MEANS IS ANYTHING THAT'S FROZEN, THAT NEEDS TO BE KEPT FROZEN IS ZERO DEGREES FAHRENHEIT, ANYTHING THAT NEEDS TO BE KEPT COLD IS 41 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT."

HICKMAN SAYS WHOLE MUSCLE MEATS, SUCH AS STEAKS, HAVE A TENDENCY TO CONTAMINATE FROM THE OUTSIDE IN AND REALLY ONLY NEED A GOOD SEAR, WHILE CHICKEN AND GROUND BEEF SHOULD BE COOKED TO 165 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.

"EVERYBODY LIKES THAT PINK-IN-THE-MIDDLE HAMBURGER, BUT IT'S PROBABLY BETTER IF IT'S NOT PINK IN THE MIDDLE. THEY CAN STILL BE JUICY, BUT RAW HAMBURGER, LET'S FACE IT, IT'S ALL MIXED UP TOGETHER, IF YOU DON'T TAKE CARE OF IT AT HOME, YOU KNOW YOU LEAVE IT OUT TO LONG, IT STARTS TO GROW THINGS."

HICKMAN SAYS THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE FOOD IS COOKED TO THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE OR STAYING COLD ENOUGH IS TO USE A FOOD THERMOMETER.
