====================================

A WOMAN WHO ADMITTED IN MAY TO STEALING MEMORIAL VASES FROM GRAVESITES AND SELLING THOSE VASES AS SCRAP METAL WAS SENTENCED TO A TERM OF IMPRISONMENT WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON IN NATRONA COUNTY DISTRICT COURT.

JUDGE CATHERINE WILKING SENTENCED 51-YEAR-OLD JANNA L. SZYNSKIE TO A TERM OF SEVEN-10 YEARS IN PRISON ON ONE COUNT OF WRONGFUL TAKING OR DISPOSING OR PROPERTY.

SZYNSKIE WAS ALSO ORDERED TO PAY $40,500 IN RESTITUTION, A FRACTION OF THE MORE THAN $173,000 REQUESTED BY NATRONA COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY MIKE BLONIGEN. BLONIGEN SAID HE BASED HIS FIGURE ON THE COST OF $368 TO REPLACE EACH OF THE 471 VASES STOLEN.

HE SAID HE KNEW THERE WAS NO WAY SZYNSKIE COULD PAY THAT MUCH, BUT HE ALSO DIDN'T KNOW HOW HE COULD JUSTIFY ASKING FOR ANY LESS.

BLONIGEN TOLD WILKING THAT 374 VICTIMS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED, AND THEY CONTINUED TO COME FORWARD UP UNTIL JUST A FEW DAYS BEFORE WEDNESDAY'S SENTENCING HEARING.

BLONIGEN SAID THE IMPACT OF THE CRIME HAS BEEN DEVASTATING.

A PARTICULARLY TROUBLING ASPECT, BLONIGEN TOLD WILKING, WAS SZYNSKIE'S APPARENT WILLINGNESS TO DO ANYTHING FOR MONEY.

BLONIGEN SAID PROBATION WOULD LIKELY NOT BE EFFECTIVE. HE DETAILED SZYNSKIE'S CRIMINAL HISTORY, WHICH INCLUDES A DRUG CHARGE, THEFT AND EMBEZZLEMENT, AS WELL AS HER PREVIOUS INCARCERATION AND THREE PRIOR ATTEMPTS AT INPATIENT TREATMENT FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE.

DURING HER STATEMENT TO THE COURT, SZYNSKIE TURNED AROUND AND APOLOGIZED TO THE VICTIMS WHO PACKED THE COURTROOM.

SZYNSKIE SOLD THE STOLEN VASES AS SCRAP, AND RECEIVED ABOUT $2,900 IN EXCHANGE.

A COAL COMPANY THAT WAS RECENTLY DENIED A PERMIT TO MINE IN NORTHERN WYOMING IS APPEALING THE DECISION.
RAMACO CARBON FILED THE APPEAL FRIDAY, WITH COMPANY LAWYERS SAYING THERE WERE A NUMBER OF PROCEDURAL ERRORS LEADING UP TO AND FOLLOWING A CITIZEN'S BOARD DECISION THAT THE PLAN FAILED TO ADDRESS ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS.

THE BOARD'S OPINION WAS FOLLOWED BY A DENIAL FROM STATE REGULATORS, WHO SAID RAMACO WILL HAVE TO FURTHER STUDY HOW BLASTING WILL AFFECT THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY AND WHAT MINING WILL DO TO WATER AND SOIL.

THE FACILITY WOULD BE LOCATED IN A PREVIOUSLY MINED AREA IN NORTHERN WYOMING NEAR THE SMALL RANCHING COMMUNITY OF RANCHESTER. IT WOULD BE THE FIRST NEW COAL MINE IN WYOMING IN DECADES.
