Pinedale election

Very few Pinedale residents turned out to cast their votes in the town election on Monday. According to Town Clerk Patty Racich, there were only 37 voters. Top vote getter was councilwoman Nylla Kunard, with 36 votes, followed by council members Gary Heuck and Barbara Boyce with 33 votes each, and Mayor Rose Skinner with 30 votes.

Connie Snow and Ralph Wenz each received two write-in votes, while Bill Snow and Jeff Goltz each received one write-in.

Handcart trekkers

Bureau of Land Management's Lander Field Office is making available for public review an Environmental Assessment for the issuance of a Special Recreation Permit to the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints, Farm Management Company. The EA analyzes impacts to the environment for the proposed SRP to manage organized groups of handcart trekkers along a segment of the Oregon, Mormon Pioneer, California, and Pony Express National Historic Trails in Fremont County.

The proposed activity would be a non-exclusive use of BLM administered public lands; therefore, current uses on the public lands, including other recreational uses, would still occur. The proposed handcart trekking route of approximately 26 miles begins on Church property at Sixth Crossing, near Sweetwater Station to Church property at Rock Creek Hollow, southeast of Atlantic City.

An electronic version of the EA is also available on the Lander Field Office web site at:

Comments on the proposed actions and alternatives presented and the adequacy of the impact analysis will be accepted until May 31. Comments may be submitted via regular mail to: Ray Hanson, Project Lead, Bureau of Land Management, Lander Field Office, P.O. Box 589, Lander, Wyo., 82520. Comments may also be submitted electronically to:

Neal joins Case

State Senator Cale Case announced that former Casper Star-Tribune editor Dan Neal has joined the Case for Congress campaign as its lead strategist in the Republican primary election.

Case is challenging incumbent U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin for the GOP nomination for election to Wyoming's lone seat in the U.S. House.

"Dan brings more than 20 years of experience as a journalist covering issues important to the people of Wyoming. He knows the state and its people," Case said. "The organizational skills he acquired at the newspaper also will greatly aid my campaign."

Neal said he is joining the Case campaign because he believes the state deserves better representation in Congress. "The senator and I share the same philosophies of fiscal responsibility, responsible use of natural resources and protection of Wyoming's environment. When Congress casts the tough votes, Cale will always be there for Wyoming."
