Sublette County Fair Lynn Thomas Memorial Art Show on display through July 30 (posted 7/23/16)
Reception July 28th
Regional artists and beyond are looking forward to exhibiting a variety of paintings, drawings, etchings, metal art, pottery, and sculpture at the Third Annual Sublette County Fair Lynn Thomas Memorial Art Show at the Community Hall on the Sublette County Fairgrounds in Big Piney, Wyoming. The show opens on Sunday, July 24, and will be on display through Saturday, July 30. Artists will be painting in the area on Thursday, July 28. The public is cordially invited to a reception at the Community Hall that evening beginning at 5:30 P. M.

Pinedale Elementary School art teacher, Cristy Anspach, will select Best of Show which includes a cash prize of $100. Director's Choice award is $50. Four Purchase Awards will be given by Jo Crandall, Jay and Brianne Brower, Melanie and Cory Bennett, and First Bank. There is also a ribbon for People's Choice.

The show is open to participants 18 years of age and up. Artwork will be accepted at the Fair Office beginning on Monday, July 18. A committee will begin hanging the show on Saturday, July 23. It is one of the few art shows that requires no entry fees or financial contributions from the artists. Any sales go directly to the artists.

The event is co-sponsored by the Sublette County Fair Board and the Mixed Media art group. It is in memory of Boulder, Wyoming artist, Lynn Thomas, who died of cancer in 2009. She was a long-time member of Women Artists of the West and a stalwart supporter of the Fair, 4-H, the Sublette County community in general, and the arts all across the state. She generously donated many paintings to multiple causes. She was president of the Wyoming Artists' Association, and the organization's Grand Wyoming Artist in 1997, a member of the Sublette County Artists' Guild, and a signature member of the Mixed Media art group.

It is the goal of the Fair Board to promote the art show as a prestigious "destination" event each year.

Man killed in 2,400 foot fall in Grand Teton Park (posted 7/23/16)
Gary Falk victim of fall
Grand Teton National Park
MOOSE, WYOMING — Grand Teton National Park Rangers responded to two major incidents today. At approximately 10:30 a.m. Teton Interagency Dispatch Center was notified that an individual fell in Valhalla Canyon and was believed to be seriously or fatally injured. Park rangers responded with a reconnaissance flight to survey the situation and two rangers from that flight were inserted in the area via helicopter and hiked to the scene. It was determined that the individual was deceased and a recovery effort was initiated.

The individual was identified as Exum Mountain Guide Gary Falk. Falk was leading a group of clients to summit the Grand Teton. On the descent, Falk fell from the top of the Owen Spalding Rappel into Valhalla Canyon near the Black Ice Couloir. Falk fell approximately 2,400 feet. Falk’s body was recovered via helicopter long line and Teton County Coroner declared Falk deceased Saturday afternoon.

Another Exum guide assisted the clients with their descent. Exum Mountain Guides is a concessioner with Grand Teton National Park.

Falk, 42, from Ouray, Colorado, has been working for Exum Mountain Guides for 12 years. He has a wife and two young sons. Exum President and co-owner Nat Patridge said, "The Teton Guiding community is devastated with this lost. Gary was a diligent guide, always the consummate professional. Exum is grieving from this news and struggling to comprehend the situation. All Exum operations will be closed Sunday, out of honor and respect for Gary. Our love goes out to Kate and their sons."

Park rangers also responded to a rescue of a 25-year-old woman from Walker, Michigan. A call was received by Teton Interagency Dispatch Center at approximately 1:15 p.m. informing of an individual hiking in the south fork of Garnet Canyon that fell on snow and was severely injured. A short-haul rescue was used to extract her from the scene of the fall to a park ambulance that transported her to St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson.

No stopping along the roadway or parking in pullouts is allowed within the fire area. No passing allowed in passing zones within the fire area. The Granite Creek drainage is still under mandatory evacuation. Bondurant residents have been allowed to return to their homes. Fire danger is rated Very High on the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The Forest Service is in the process of evaluating if they should move to Stage I fire restrictions soon, which will mean campfire and outdoor smoking restrictions. Fire managers thanked the public and cooperating agencies for all the offers to help and the excellent teamwork on this fast-moving fire.

Lava Mountain Fire update - July 22, 2016 (posted 7/22/16)
Burning northwest of Dubois, portion of CDT trail closed
Pinedale Online!
The Lava Mountain Fire is burning 20 miles northwest of Dubois on the Wind River Ranger District of the Shoshone National Forest, on the east side of the Wind River Mountain Range, in thick timber. The fire was caused by lighting and smoke was first reported on Sunday, July 10th, a week before the Cliff Creek Fire started. Firefighters walked the area and made several flights. However, for the first few days, crews were unable to locate the fire due to its lack of size and visible smoke. On July 16th the fire grew to around 250 acres due to increased temperatures and wind. At that time, additional resources were ordered and a Type 2 Incident Management Team was deployed to Dubois.

As of Thursday, July 21st, the Lava Creek Fire was at 1,200 acres. Residences from Big Diamond Ranch to Double Bar J Ranch are currently evacuated. All residences from the Lava Mountain Lodge to Falls Creek Campground should be set to leave in the event of additional evacuations. Highway 26 is currently open and is being used as one of the detour routes by people who want to get from Jackson and Yellowstone Park over to the Pinedale area due to the closure of US 191/189 through Hoback Canyon due to the much larger Cliff Creek fire. The Union Pass Road is still currently open.

NOTICE TO CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRAIL HIKERS: A portion of the Continental Divide Trail from Pilot Knob to Sheridan Pass is now closed due to the Lava Mountain Fire.

For more information about the Lava Mountain Fire, see Inciweb at: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4864/

Fire Danger raised to Very High (posted 7/21/16)
Bridger-Teton National Forest
Teton Interagency fire managers announce that the fire danger rating has increased to Very High for the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park and Teton Interagency Dispatch Area.

With exceptionally dry conditions, local residents and visitors alike should practice heightened fire safety at all times.

When determining fire danger ratings, fire officials evaluate several factors such as: the moisture content of grasses, shrubs and trees; projected weather conditions (including temperatures and possible wind events); the ability of fire to spread after ignition; and the availability of fire-fighting resources. A fire danger rating of ‘Very High’ means that fires can start easily, spread quickly and burn intensely.

Recent hot temperatures, low humidity and windy conditions have combined to increase the potential for intense fire activity across the Teton Interagency fire area.

The smallest spark has the potential to cause significant damage, always crush smokes dead out; never leave a campfire unattended; ensure that your vehicle has a properly installed spark arrester that is operational; and, stop and park only in areas clear of vegetation.

Campers are reminded that unattended or abandoned campfires can easily escalate into wildfires; therefore, it is important that all campfires are completely extinguished and cold to the touch before leaving a site. Campers and day users should have a shovel on hand and a water bucket ready for use. All campfires must be completely extinguished and cold to the touch before leaving a site.

All recreationalists should be mindful that they could be held liable for suppression costs if their actions contribute to starting a wildfire.

To report a fire or smoke in Bridger-Teton National Forest or Grand Teton National Park, call the Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch Center at 307-739-3630. For more fire information, please visit www.tetonfires.com.
