Teton County now qualifies for disaster assistance due to this summer’s drought conditions.  Governor Matt Mead had made a request for all Wyoming counties to receive a drought disaster declaration, except for Teton County. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has been reviewing conditions for each county as drought information is received, designating eight counties of the 22 requested now as primary natural disaster areas.  Those are Hot Springs, Laramie, Carbon, Sweetwater, Uinta, Lincoln, Sublette and Fremont Counties.  Meanwhile, eight other counties qualify for assistance as contiguous to the primary counties.  Those counties are Albany, Natrona, Converse, Platte, Goshen, Washakie, Park and Teton Counties.  Governor Mead explains that drought disaster declarations provide some relief for loss of pasture land, hay, and consequently livestock.  He says he plans to continue to push for all counties in Wyoming to receive assistance because the entire state is impacted in this exceptionally dry year.

  • 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 […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
