CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Park County officials have scheduled a July 21 meeting to reconsider a plan to have Wyoming cover the costs of educating the children of Yellowstone National Park employees who live in Mammoth Hot Springs. For decades, the federal government covered the bill for the few dozen northern Wyoming youngsters to attend the public schools in nearby Gardiner, Montana.

KEYSTONE, Colo. (AP) — Authorities in Colorado are learning of a Wyoming connection in a knife attack. The Summit Daily News reports that the unidentified 18-year-old victim told police he came to Colorado to party after making about $50,000 selling a house in Thermopolis. The victim said he fought back after being attacked with swords, a belt and a combat knife.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Highway Patrol says no charges will be filed in a crash that killed a bicyclist from New York State. Fifty-nine-year-old Gary Griffin was riding with a group of bicyclists when he was struck by a pickup truck Monday morning on Wyoming 220 south of Casper. Patrol officials say the driver was unable to avoid colliding with Griffin and won't be cited.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A 31-year-old Cheyenne man has been sentenced to 75 years to life in prison for the shooting death of his estranged wife, which was witnessed by the couple's 10-year-old daughter. Christopher Town pleaded guilty last October in the death of 29-year-old Crystal Town. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports the shooting occurred as she went to Town's home to pick up the girl.
