A state grant was awarded to the town of Jackson this morning to build a natural gas fueling station at a local service station in time for summer tourist season.  Mayor Mark Barron and members of the Energy Conservation Works committee met with the State Lands and Investments Board Thursday and made their case for more than three-quarter million dollars to establish a fueling site at Shervin’s Independent Oil.  Barron explains that Shervin’s has the land and fuel islands ready and available, and they have space for large busses or trucks to pull through.  Consequently, he says, “We would be prepared for the school system should they begin to convert to natural gas, certainly our START busses and town and county vehicles, get into a cleaner, less expensive Wyoming fuel.” Barron says the local group pledged to help encourage residents to convert vehicles and fleets and provide technical advice as well as low-interest loans to help make the conversions possible.  Under the agreement with Shervins, 10¢ of every gasoline-equivalent sold would be returned to the Energy Conservation Works.

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 […]
