Feds to decide which route will receive subsidy

Cody airport officials are asking the federal government to continue subsidizing winter flights to Salt Lake City — although a proposal to provide service to Denver would be hundreds of thousands dollars cheaper.

Essential Air Service — the federal program that subsidizes commercial flights to and from Yellowstone Regional Airport during the winter months — is a frequent target of budget hawks.

Attorneys general from 45 states and the District of Columbia have accused Cody Laboratories’ parent company of conspiring with its competitors to fix the price of an antibiotic.

Park County had a couple more decades to pay back the roughly $2.5 million that it borrowed from the state government to reclaim some of its old landfill trash pits.

A routine traffic stop in Yellowstone National Park turned into a windfall for the federal government.

Last week, a judge ruled that the government can keep more than $20,337 in cash that a Yellowstone ranger seized from two Illinois men in July.

In connection with an alleged scheme to defraud the Wyoming Medicaid program, Powell psychologist Gib Condie has pleaded guilty to one count of felony health care fraud.

Last year, the National Park Service helped launch a campaign called “Find Your Park,” which encouraged Americans to visit and appreciate our national parks.

But this year, it appears the Park Service’s new campaign slogan might be, “What’s in your wallet?”

Powell psychologist Gib Condie pleaded guilty to a felony charge of health care fraud at a Friday afternoon appearance in federal court in Cheyenne.

A Powell psychologist who is alleged to have submitted more than $6.8 million worth of fraudulent bills to Wyoming Medicaid has reached a tentative plea deal with federal prosecutors, court records say.

Plea may be withdrawn if Supreme Court rules in his favor
