Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A wildfire scarring the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeast Wyoming has jumped the Laramie River, a disappointing turn for crews hoping the waterway would prove a natural barrier. The U.S. Forest Service has called on more experienced fire managers and crews to handle the 3,500-acre blaze because of its growing complexity. It was 10 percent contained last night.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The presidents of the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University have reaffirmed plans to sell a 50,000-acre ranch the schools jointly own in southeast Wyoming. The woman who gave the Y Cross Ranch to the schools, Denver philanthropist Amy Davis, has said the gift hasn’t seen enough use for hands-on agricultural education.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Casper City Council is considering a proposed indoor smoking ban, with a final vote scheduled June 19. The Casper Star-Tribune reports the ban would include restaurants, bars and private clubs, among other public places. An earlier version would have exempted private clubs, but Council members on Tuesday approved an amendment striking the exemption.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Several players in this week’s Wyoming Shrine Bowl all-star game at Casper have their eyes on playing football for the University of Wyoming. Laramie lineman Josh Teeter, Evanston running back Matt Eddington and Lander wide receiver Tanner Simpson will all be preferred walk-ons this fall for the Cowboys. Teeter and Eddington are members of the Shrine Bowl South team, while Simpson will play for the North squad for tomorrow’s game.
