A deer hunter in the South Fork area killed a grizzly bear sow Oct. 27 when the bear attacked him.

The lone hunter was in the Aldrich Creek drainage in the upper South Fork of the Shoshone River when he encountered a 10 to 12-year-old sow, a news release from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department said.

The sow had two yearling cubs in tow and thought her offspring were threatened, said Mark Bruscino, Game and Fish bear management program supervisor in Cody.

Food drive slated for Wednesday night

Loaves and Fishes pantry shelves bare

Expect your doorbell to ring Wednesday night.

While it's still too early for trick-or-treaters, hundreds of youth will hit Powell's streets Wednesday night from 5:30-8 p.m. for the annual food drive.

Going door to door, young volunteers will collect food donations to replenish bare shelves at Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes.

Two Powell veterans were chosen to go on last month's Wyoming Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., a long-delayed thank you for their service in World War II.

They each had another distinction as well. At 91, Laverne Solberg of Powell was the oldest of the Wyoming veterans to go on the flight.

The play day was a benefit in remembrance of Rowdy Smallwood, a 9-year-old cowboy who died after a farming accident. Sunday's auction and other events raised more than $20,000 for the Smallwood family, according to Christi Greaham, an events volunteer. Tribune photo by Kara Bacon

A District Court judge has ordered Park County Attorney Bryan Skoric to turn over information outlining how his office determines the appropriate court for juveniles accused of criminal wrongdoing.

In cooperation with other agencies — such as local personnel from Department of Family Services, Park County Youth Services and law enforcement — the county attorney serves as the gatekeeper or “single point of entry” for all juvenile criminal cases in Park County.

Participants in a cultural history tour of Yellowstone National Park visited Lake Hotel and several other historic buildings in the park. Pictured above is the sun room at Lake Hotel, which Wyoming columnist Bill Sniffin said many folks claim to be one of the most “centering” places on the planet. Attempts now are under way to have the hotel put on the National Register of Historic Buildings. Tribune photo by Ilene Olson

Although few people visiting Yellowstone National Park realize it, several of the historic buildings they see were designed by the same architect.

Robert C. Reamer designed the Old Faithful Inn (1903-04) and its west wing (1927), the Lake Store (1919), the Lake Hotel (1922-23), the Upper Hamilton Store in the Old Faithful area (1929), the National Hotel (now the main wing of the Mammoth Hotel) at Mammoth Hot Springs and Mammoth Hotel Cottages (1938). Reamer also redesigned the National Hotel in 1936 after a fire, and may have had a hand in the design of the stone arch leading into Yellowstone from Gardiner, Mont.

Realistically, the end result will almost certainly be the same — Bloomer will spend the rest of his life in prison.
