    Tennis splits with Cody

    The Powell High School girls tennis team trumped Cody again on Tuesday, while Cody got a bit of revenge on the Powell boys. Playing in Cody, the Lady Panthers won four of five matches — as they did on Sept. 4 — while the Panther boys went 2-3; the boys had beaten Cody 3-2 earlier in the year.

The Wyoming Department of Health reports that 34.6 babies per 1,000 are born to girls ages 15-19. That’s down from 50.1 births per 1,000 in 2007 but still far too high; the national rate is 29.4 births per 1,000 to teen moms.

A young man who was involved in a triple murder in Clark isn’t getting out of the life-long prison sentence he agreed to last year.

In a succinct Tuesday decision, District Court Judge Steven Cranfill denied a request to give Stephen Hammer, 20, the chance to one day become eligible for parole. As a result, Hammer still has no opportunity at ever being paroled.
