Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Firefighters say it’s unlikely that Wyoming’s largest wildfire will be fully contained until fall or winter. Rain and cooler temperatures are helping firefighters, but officials caution that the fire season is still young and warm, drier weather is returning this week. The nearly 150-square-mile Arapaho Fire burning northwest of Wheatland is 75 percent contained.

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Attorney General Greg Phillips has sided with Central Wyoming College in Riverton in a disagreement over how to pay for a new health and science education building. The Riverton Ranger reports Phillips says the state along should cover the initial costs of the project before the college begins tapping into $11 million in local revenue.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Department of Transportation officials say they’re pleased with the just-approved federal transportation bill that keeps highway funding for the state relatively level. WyDOT chief engineer Del McOmie says the state highway agency had been bracing for the possibility of federal cuts. That would have further strained an already tight budget.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming ranchers have been selling off cattle early because there’s not enough grass for them to graze on because of the drought. The Casper Star-Tribune reports that the Torrington Livestock market sold more than 17,000 head of cattle in June, nearly ten times as many as normal. More ranchers are also delivering animals they’ve sold this month, rather than wait until August or September.
