BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The Air Force is expected to decide as soon as next month whether to expand a bomber training area over the Northern Plains that includes parts of Wyoming. Known as the Powder River Training Complex, the area would be used by B-1 bombers based at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota and B-52 bombers at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota.

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — An environmental group is challenging a 2008 U.S. Forest Service decision that permitted five elk feedgrounds in the Jackson Hole area. The Western Watersheds Project has filed a lawsuit that argues Bridger-Teton National Forest officials violated their own forest plan, the National Environmental Policy Act and the Wyoming Wilderness Act in approving the feedgrounds. The elk feeding areas are run by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to help elk survive the winter.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Cases of Vesicular Stomatitis in other states have prompted action from the Wyoming Livestock Board to keep the viral disease out of the state. The state veterinarian says all livestock imported from any state where the disease has been diagnosed must be accompanied by a health certificate written within 10 days prior to entry into the state instead of the usual 30 days.

(AP) — The National Park Service is accepting more public comment on proposed infrastructure improvements at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch in Yellowstone National Park. The Park Service is accepting public comment until midnight Aug. 15 on the proposal. The Lamar Buffalo Ranch is a National Register Historic District.
