Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Incumbent Wyoming Republicans Sen. John Barrasso and Rep. Cynthia Lummis have raised about $4 million between the two of them for their re-election campaigns so far. Meanwhile, the two Democrats perhaps most likely to face Barrasso and Lummis in November’s general election said yesterday they’ve raised about $17,000 collectively. Wyoming will hold its primary Tuesday.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Laramie police say an officer has shot and wounded a 26-year-old man after responding to a call about a possible car break-in. Police say Kevin R. Cook, of Laramie, was hospitalized in serious but stable condition yesterday. Police say the officer involved in Wednesday night’s shooting was treated and released for unspecified injuries.

FORT LUPTON, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was killed after a rupture at a natural gas well in northern Colorado was from Wyoming. Weld County coroner’s officials identified the victim yesterday as 60-year-old Brian Wallace of Evanston. They say he died immediately from blunt force injuries after the explosion Wednesday at a well operated by Encana Corp.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An economic index for 10 Midwest and Western states, including Wyoming, has dropped again, and an economist says the drought is “dampening economic activity across the region.” The Rural Mainstreet Index dropped further into negative territory this month, hitting 47.1, compared with 47.9 in July and 56.7 in June. Survey organizers say any score below 50 suggests future economic contraction.
