Park Land Sale Discussed

sold

Members of the Teton County Legislative Delegation met yesterday with the Director of Wyoming’s Office of State Lands and Investments to discuss the breakdown of the sale of state lands inside Grand Teton National Park to the federal government.  Representative Keith Gingery says while the first two parcels have been successfully sold and transferred to the federal government, the sale of the remaining two – valued at approximately $110-million – is threatened by federal budget constraints.  The alternative of completing the sale with the exchange of BLM lands along with their mineral rights elsewhere in the state is being discussed.  However, if such a land exchange agreement is unable to be realized, Gingery says the State Lands Board is obligated to lease or dispose of the parcels in such a way to realize the largest possible proceeds to benefit the state’s public schools.  Among those attending Monday’s meeting were Representatives Keith Gingery, Ruth Ann Petroff and Marti Halverson, and Senators Leland Christensen and Dan Dockstader.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
