Girl Scouts sleep over at BBHC with nocturnal animals

Clutching a glowing flashlight and clad in fuzzy slippers, Sabrina Shoopman declares, “I'm nocturnal!”

Nocturnal indeed.

Having just met a real-life nocturnal owl, young Sabrina and 11 fellow Powell Girl Scouts are practicing their own night-hunting skills as they embark on a scavenger hunt in the darkened Draper Museum of Natural History at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.

Meeting Tuesday on Chief Joseph hauling

Park County residents and officials are getting their opportunity to weigh in on a Montana mine clean up plan that involves hauling tens of thousands of tons of gold tailings over the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway.

Officials from the Montana Department of Environmental Quality will be in Cody on Tuesday, Nov. 16, to discuss their clean up plans for the McLaren Mine outside Cooke City, Mont.

Brucellosis confirmed

No other infected herds have been found

Brucellosis has been confirmed in a Meeteetse area cattle herd where three cattle initially tested positive for the bacterial disease in late October.

So far, there is no indication that the disease has spread to surrounding herds in Park County, state Veterinarian Jim Logan said.
“Everything else we have results on so far has been negative,” Logan said Wednesday.

Just like regular season, Panthers' playoff schedule starts with RIverton

In many ways, it will feel like the start of football season all over again when No. 4 Riverton (5-3) returns to Powell this Friday night for a 3A quarterfinal contest against the fifth-ranked and also 5-3 Panthers. After beginning the regular season against each other, the two schools will now battle for the right to play at least one more week.

Chilean students reflect on mine rescue

Watching news coverage of the rescue of 33 miners in a copper mine in Chile earlier this month took on a personal meaning for a few Northwest College students.

The miners were trapped after a cave-in at the San Jose Mine in northern Chile three months earlier.

Three candidates jostle at forum

There was plenty of trash talk at last week's Park County Commission candidate forum.

While the discussion was civil, the subject matter at the Powell event largely focused on the future of the county's garbage.

A second chance to swim

With water draining from canals for the winter, the East Yellowstone chapter of Trout Unlimited once again is pursuing trout in draining irrigation canals.

As of Monday, around 2,200 trout had been captured in canals and released into the Shoshone River.

Clerk's race draws most money

The general election race for Park County Clerk has drawn far more money than any other local race, say campaign finance reports filed last week.

The pre-general election finance reports for incumbent clerk, Kelly Jensen, a Democrat, and Republican challenger Jerri Torczon show Torczon with a significant monetary edge.

Meeteetse brucellosis testing continues

Up to 3,000 cows may be tested this week

Teams of veterinarians are testing up to 3,000 cows for brucellosis in the Meeteetse area after preliminary tests showed three cows from a herd in that area may be infected with the bacterial disease.

Dr. Jim Logan, the Wyoming state veterinarian, said Monday that teams of vets would test cattle every day this week. He estimated up to 3,000 cows would be tested, including the herd the three cows came from and cattle in up to nine other herds that mingled with this one on summer grazing allotments.

Hunter kills attacking grizzly

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.
