Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Fire crews anticipating the return of hot, dry, windy weather this weekend have worked to build lines around a wildfire burning in Wyoming’s Medicine Bow National Forest. The Russell’s Camp fire is located about 30 miles south of Glenrock and has burned just over 4 square miles since Sunday. Warmer temperatures yesterday meant the fire was more active.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — U.S. Forest Service officials insist new rules dictating where fire retardant can and can’t be used in dozens of national forests won’t hinder firefighting. The new rules are meant to prevent fire retardant from harming protected plants and fish. The company that operates much of the U.S. private fleet of large tanker planes says the rules could have a small impact on response times.

DENVER (AP) — The Wyoming lawyer for a Colorado man accused of improperly building a road in an area being considered for federal wilderness protection says Andrew VanDenBerg only settled to avoid costs of a trial. Karen Budd Falen of Cheyenne disputes that the road was in a wilderness study area and says VanDenBerg only cleaned up an existing road so he could reach his patented mining claim.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — All 16 of the men’s and women’s athletic programs at the University of Wyoming are meeting NCAA academic guidelines. The NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate measures all Division I sports programs academically over a four-year cycle. Teams that fail to achieve a score of 925, the equivalent of a 50 percent graduation rate, can lose scholarships or become ineligible for their postseasons.
