Wyoming News Briefs

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Two Cody teens are scheduled to appear in court today in the killing of a woman and her parents in a tiny Wyoming town near the Montana border where residents say they’ve been left shaken by the violence. The Park County sheriff says 19-year-old Stephen Hammer and 18-year-old Tanner Vanpelt were arrested Saturday after neighbors gave deputies a description of two men seen entering the victim’s house in Clark. The sheriff gave no indication of motive.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Plow the Beartooth. That’s one idea being floated to aid tourism in Cody during a delay in opening Yellowstone National Park to automobiles this spring. The annual job of clearing snow from park roads was supposed to begin yesterday. Because of federal budget cuts, spring plowing is delayed two weeks. The National Park Service will save $30,000 a day but at a cost to tourism.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Legislature intends to direct state agencies to prepare for budget cuts despite Gov. Matt Mead’s recent veto of a similar directive in the state’s supplemental budget bill. The Legislature’s Management Council is a group of senior lawmakers who set legislative priorities. It voted last week to require legislative committees to review budget cut proposals of 2, 4 and 6 percent from most state agencies.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana officials say the final tally from the state’s wolf hunting and trapping seasons is 225 predators. Wildlife officials say hunters killed 128 wolves and trappers another 97 in the season that closed Feb. 28. That’s an increase over 2011 when 166 wolves were killed. Trapping was not allowed.
