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.

    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
