JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Teton County commissioners have approved the final development plan for an affordable housing development for teachers.

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — One of the largest coal mines in the U.S. is about to ship its billionth ton of coal. The Cordero Rojo surface coal mine in the Powder River Basin in northeast Wyoming has been in operation for 38 years. Last year, almost 37 million tons of coal from the mine was sold. That ranks Cordero Rojo third in the U.S. for production.

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — The Sheridan County Sheriff's Office says it doesn't intend to file charges after an 11-year-old boy was accidentally shot in the head with a .22-caliber rifle. The unidentified boy was treated and released from a hospital in Billings after the shooting last week at a ranch in northern Sheridan County.
