CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s effort to make its public school students better prepared for college and careers may take longer than originally hoped. Members of the Wyoming Board of Education told a panel of lawmakers yesterday that districts and the state lack the ability to meet the established timeline to implement the state’s new education reform law. Paige Fenton Hughes says it may take about two years longer than originally planned.

TEA, S.D. (AP) — A spokeswoman for the South Dakota Attorney General’s Office says an investigation into two former Tea police officers, including former Chief Brian Ketterhagen, is not related to a lawsuit in Wyoming. Ketterhagen is one of three officers being sued by a Wyoming man wrongfully convicted of murder. The lawsuit claims Ketterhagen, as captain of the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office, withheld evidence in the case of Troy Willoughby.
