Towns Funding YNP Plowing Attracts National Press

financial contributions

The day funds were approved by Jackson Hole tourism interests to plow the road between the South Entrance and Grant Village in Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Chamber Director Jeff Golightly predicted the action would bring the kind of publicity that couldn’t be bought.  This week, the decisions of tourism interests in Jackson and Cody have caught the nation’s attention with stories published by Reuters News Service, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, Scientific American and a variety of other news outlets across the nation.  Golightly says all the press didn’t surprise him, but some other reactions have caught him by surprise.  Golightly says he received an email from a resident of Florida who had visited Yellowstone as a youngster, but she hadn’t returned for a visit in over forty years.  Still, Golightly says she wanted to make a contribution to help plow open the entrance. Golightly says the chamber has very quickly put together a website that will be put online soon, allowing people from around the country to participate in the effort.  Golightly says people are looking for a positive story as it relates to sequestration and this has become the kind of story news agencies everywhere are anxious to pick up.
