CASPER CITY COUNCIL WILL ASK WYOMING'S CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION -- SENS. MIKE ENZI AND JOHN BARRASSO, AND REP. LIZ CHENEY -- TO ASK THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE TO CONSIDER BUILDING A POST OFFICE ON THE CITY'S WEST SIDE.

COUNCIL VOTED 8-1 FOR THE POST OFFICE RESOLUTION AS A RESULT OF PARADISE VALLEY RESIDENT BRIAN CLARK COLLECTING SCORES OF SIGNATURES FROM INTERESTED PEOPLE ON THE WEST SIDE.

WHETHER THAT EFFORT AND GOOD INTENTION GETS ANY RESULTS IS ANOTHER MATTER.

COUNCIL MEMBER DALLAS LAIRD SAID HE SUPPORTED THE RESOLUTION BECAUSE THE PUSH FOR IT CAME FROM CLARK WHO IS IN HIS WARD
COUNCIL MEMBER JESSE MORGAN ALSO COMPLIMENTED THE EFFORT OF CLARK, WHO SAID MARCH 20TH THAT FAR MORE PEOPLE LIVE ON THE WEST SIDE THAN THE TOWN OF MILLS, WHICH HAS ITS OWN POST OFFICE.

BUT MORGAN ADDED THE MILLS POST OFFICE IS NEAR THE WEST SIDE, AND THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE ISN'T BUILDING NEW POST OFFICES BECAUSE OF THE COMPETITION FROM THE DIGITAL WORLD AND OTHER METHODS OF SENDING MAIL AND PARCELS.

MORGAN, WHO VOTED AGAINS THE RESOLUTION, ADDED THE BUILDINGS NEED TO BE PROFITABLE, BECAUSE THE POSTAL SERVICE TREATS EVERY POST OFFICE LIKE A BUSINESS.

ANOTHER OFFICER COMPLETED A VEHICLE INVENTORY OF THE SUBARU AND FOUND A SMALL BLACK PLASTIC CONTAINER CONTAINING MARIJUANA. AN OPEN CONTAINER OF POTTER'S VODKA WAS ALSO DISCOVERED, ACCORDING TO THE AFFIDAVIT.
==================

METEOROLOGIST DON DAY SAYS THAT WHILE SEVERE WEATHER FOR THE UPCOMING SUMMER MONTHS IS HARD TO PREDICT, THERE ARE TWO PERIODS WHERE IT BECOMES MUCH MORE LIKELY..

OVERALL DAY IS PREDICTING A HOT, DRY SUMMER FOR THE AREA. BUT HE SAYS DORUGHT CONDITIONS ARE UNLIKELY, IN LARGE PART BECAUSE SOIL MOISTURE LEVELS ARE NEAR NORMAL AT THIS POINT.
