CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A judge will hear arguments today in a lawsuit against the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University, which are seeking to sell a ranch donated to the schools in 1997. The schools say they could better use the Y Cross Ranch to fund scholarships. Amy Davis donated the ranch to be used as a site for hands-on teaching. The 5,000 acre ranch is between Cheyenne and Laramie.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Several media outlets are challenging the University of Wyoming’s decision not to release the names of candidates being considered for the school’s new president. The Casper Star-Tribune, Wyoming Tribune Eagle and The Associated Press filed the lawsuit yesterday in state District Court in Laramie. A UW spokesman says candidates might not apply if their names were not kept confidential.

POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Growers say year’s sugar beet crop in the Lovell area in north-central Wyoming is the second-best on record.
