RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — A Pavillion woman accused of causing the death of her infant son has accepted a plea deal and may avoid jail time.

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Sierra Club says the environmental review of Grand Teton National Park’s annual elk hunt is out-of-date, and the group has asked that the park conduct a new evaluation. The organization argues that conditions had changed since the park last completed such a study in 2007. The hunt’s goal is to keep the park’s elk population at about 1,600.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Road and parking area improvement projects are scheduled to begin the first week of July in Yellowstone National Park’s Tower Junction and Canyon Village areas. But the park says little impact is expected on visitors enjoying the summer season because most of the work will be during the night.

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — Sweetwater County’s economy is driven by oil, gas and trona production. But a planned uranium mine in the Lost Creek area north of Wamsutter is expected to increase domestic uranium production between 25 and 50 percent by 2014. Ur-Energy has acquired most of the necessary licenses and permits for the project. Production is slated to begin spring 2013.
