Wyoming News Briefs

UPTON, Wyo. (AP) — A northeastern Wyoming blaze has grown to six and a-half square miles, prompting the Bighorn National Forest to close more roads and trails. Lightning started the Gilead Fire on Aug. 14. Another blaze burning in that part of the state has burned one home and led to the evacuation of dozens of others after flames sped through Upton.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The National Weather Service says Cheyenne’s average temperature from June through August was a record 69.9 degrees. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that’s 3.5 degrees higher than average for the period. The previous record for the three months was an average of 69.5 degrees, set in 1881.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Montana man convicted of kidnapping a Wyoming woman and forcing her to drive him to Montana has been sentenced to 31 to 50 years in prison. KCWY-TV reports authorities say Guy Hanway escaped from the mental health wing of a Lander hospital in 2010 and kidnapped the woman. After driving to Montana, the woman spotted police in Billings, stopped the car and ran to the officer. Officials say Hanway had passed out from drinking.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming will play Michigan State in football in 2014.

The Cowboys and Spartans have played each other in football only twice before — in 1976 and 1977. Both previous meetings were in East Lansing.
