Here is the latest Wyoming news from The Associated Press
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's congressional delegation wants to know why the federal government is paying for what they call an unnecessary road survey for Grand Teton National Park. The Jackson Hole News&Guide reports that Rep. Cynthia Lummis and Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso say there's no reason to spend on an environmental analysis when, they claim, the park service has decided to make the 8-mile-long Moose-Wilson Road a one-way route. The agency has not formally responded.
DENVER (AP) — Deputy VA Secretary Sloan Gibson says the agency's scheduling problems and personnel investigations can be cleared up in two years. Gibson made the prediction yesterday while visiting the Denver veterans' hospital. The VA is trying to reduce long wait times for veterans to get care and punish employees accused of falsifying data to hide the problem. Last week the VA said it would discipline six employees in Colorado and Wyoming accused of falsifying health care data.
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Citing rising construction costs, the Central Wyoming College Board of Trustees has approved an extra $850,000 to build a new facility in Lander. The Riverton Ranger reports that college administrators said bids for the project came in higher than expected.
CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Cody police arrested a man for possessing a stolen motorcycle after he called them seeking protection from two men he claims were seeking to harm him. The Cody Enterprise reports that 44-year-old Mark Price of Nampa, Idaho, was arrested in late July. Price said he feared for his life, but did not say why.
