Teton County and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS have announced that members of the fire department will be conducting structure assessments for wildland fire threat to homes and businesses located within the wildland urban interface in town and around Teton County over the next several months and advising residents of actions they can take to minimize the risks to their homes and property.  Fire Chief Willy Watsabaugh says the project is being funded with grants and other donated funds, and will allow fire personnel to visit every structure located within the forested subdivisions and most unincorporated areas of the county to determine how each structure could be protected in the event of a wildland fire.  Watsabaugh says inspectors will be knocking on doors, asking permission to tour the property to conduct the assessment.  Crews will begin at Red Top Meadows, moving north along Fall Creek Road to the Teton Pass area and on to Fish Creek Road.  Other areas will be assessed as time allows.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
