Plows Commence From South Entrance

plow start

A variety of local dignitaries are to be on hand later this morning as Wyoming Department of Transportation plows commence to clear the road in Yellowstone National Park from South Entrance to Grant Village.  The work is enabled with funds raised by Jackson Hole tourism interests including individual businesses, the chamber of commerce and the Joint Powers Travel and Tourism Board to pay for the use of state equipment and personnel. Under the plan, state plows are predicted to meet up with park crews south of Grant Village on May 2nd. That means South Entrance would be able to open on time May 10th. Tourism interests say the two-week delay in opening the entrance that had been predicted due to delayed plowing date brought about by sequestration could have cost up to $2.5-million dollars in tourist spending here.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
