Public meeting for Union fiber-fed broadband project June 26 in Pinedale (posted 6/25/19)
Union, along with local public officials, will be holding a public presentation of Union's proposed fiber-fed broadband project build-out plan on Wednesday, June 26 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lovatt Room in the Sublette County Library in Pinedale. Representatives from Union will be available to answer questions throughout the event. There will be formal remarks by Pinedale Mayor Matt Murdock and Sublette County Commissioner David Burnett at 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend and learn more about the project. Refreshments will be served.

The construction of the project will begin on Thursday, June 27th with a ground-breaking ceremony to be held at 9:00AM near the Burger Barn just south of Pinedale. Union will be constructing fiber lines underground through Sublette, Sweetwater, and Lincoln counties to connect LaBarge, Marbleton, Big Piney, Pinedale, Farson, and Eden to the network.


Union expands fiber-optic broadband in Sublette, Sweetwater, and Lincoln counties (posted 6/25/19)
Union
Union Telephone Company, now known as Union, is launching a fiber-fed broadband project that will connect La Barge, Marbleton, Big Piney, Pinedale, Farson, and Eden to its regional 100GB fiber network.

Construction on the project starts on June 27 at the groundbreaking ceremony being held at 9 a.m. near the Burger Barn in Pinedale. Union will be constructing fiber lines underground through Sublette, Sweetwater, and Lincoln counties to connect LaBarge, Marbleton, Big Piney, Pinedale, Farson, and Eden to the network. When each community is connected to the regional fiber network, Union will then begin connecting the residences and businesses in the community to its fiber-fed broadband internet service.

"The bandwidth of optical fiber is unbelievable," says Brian Woody, Chief Customer Relations Officer for Union. "Once the network is in place, it will greatly benefit connected communities in terms of economic development, across a broad range of health care services, and will provide improved access to educational opportunities."

Additionally, Union along with local officials will be holding a public presentation of Union's proposed build-out plan on June 26 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lovatt Room in the Sublette County Library, located in Pinedale. Representatives from Union and elected officials will be available to answer questions throughout the event with formal remarks provided by elected officials at 6 p.m. Anyone wanting more information is welcome to attend.

Pinedale Mayor Matt Murdock said, "Since 2014, high-speed, high-capacity and redundant optical fiber has been a critical infrastructure priority that the three towns and Sublette County have actively pursued together. Fiber is a tangible asset whose full potential has not yet been defined and which opens a new horizon to be explored by Pinedale’s community to diversify and amplify our regional economy. We look forward to welcoming new residents and new businesses that can move into our community, able to enjoy our exceptional locality while remaining connected and active within the wider world. Union continues to demonstrate its commitment to Wyoming communities, and we are grateful that they will be providing such an excellent service throughout Sublette County and count on a long and fruitful relationship."

Sublette County Commissioner David Burnett said, "The Sublette County Board of Commissioners have been working diligently in cooperation with the municipalities of Pinedale, Big Piney, and Marbleton over the last two years to develop a project that would provide fiber and increased broadband services in Sublette County. Collectively we see the benefits that broadband would give to our county including, but not limited to, enhancement of economic development, opportunities in healthcare and telemedicine, as well as improvements to the quality of life for our citizens. We are grateful for Union’s project to expand fiber optic broadband in Sublette County. We look forward to working with them and growing our relationship."

Woody added, "Every resident, business, and government agency in this region stands to benefit from the addition of Union’s fiber-fed service to their community. By delivering broadband internet service to these rural Wyoming communities, we are improving these already great places to live and work and contributing directly to the development of the local entrepreneurship ecosystem."

"As the person assigned by the state to see broadband grow here in Wyoming, I couldn’t be more excited for this much needed infrastructure project that will benefit much of rural Sublette, Sweetwater and Lincoln counties, some of the states more rural and bandwidth challenged areas," said Russ Elliot, the State Broadband Manager for the Wyoming Business Council.

He added, "What is most exciting about this build is that it will provide residents of that region, affordable, reliable, redundant and future proof technologies that will last for decades. This not just a catch up project, this is a leap forward project that is setting a standard for others to emulate. Thank you Union for stepping up."

Union, started in 1914 as Union Telephone Company, has grown from a small-town local landline provider to a fast-growing regional wireless provider. Since 2012, Union has invested $30 million dollars in building 600 miles regional fiber network to provide high-speed internet service to underserved rural communities throughout Wyoming. This family owned and operated Wyoming-based telecommunications provider serves Wyoming, Northwestern Colorado, and parts of Utah and Montana with a vast regional wireless voice and high-speed data network connected to a national network of roaming partners.

"Our investment in fiber-optic broadband reflects Union’s continued commitment to improve service to underserved rural communities. It is a legacy that my grandfather John D. Woody started when he formed the company over a hundred years ago to help neighbors stay connected across Wyoming’s vast terrain," Woody said.

"Union continues to build projects that benefit Wyoming," said Cindy DeLancey, president of the Wyoming Business Alliance. "Having additional fiber optic capacity opens more doors for business in rural areas which continues to help power Wyoming’s economy."

Woody explained that fiber has many advantages over other internet delivery systems.

"Fiber, the size of single human hair, can carry far more data at much greater speeds – literally at the speed of light. And, delivering broadband to a community over a fiber provides multi-path redundancy that lowers the risk of a large-scale outage. Further, fiber service lines are buried underground, making disruptions from bad weather far less likely than other types of broadband internet service. Bottom-line, Union provides its customers with the bandwidth they need and the consistency of service they can depend on."

BLM to conduct prescribed burns in Sublette, Lincoln Counties (posted 6/12/19)
Bureau of Land Management
The BLM High Desert District’s Pinedale Field Office will be conducting two prescribed burns in Sublette and Lincoln County this summer between June and July.

Fire operations will begin only when conditions are favorable for a safe and effective burn.
The Pine Grove prescribed fire project is located approximately 15 miles northwest of La Barge and consists of 53 acres of slash and standing conifer.

The Burdick prescribed fire project is located approximately 13 miles west of La Barge, on the east face of Miller Mountain, south of the La Barge Creek drainage.

There are 470 acres of slash and standing conifer targeted to burn on the Burdick prescribed fire project. These controlled burns are part of the Wyoming Range Mule Deer Habitat Project, developed with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Wyoming Range Mule Deer Initiative in 2011.

The purpose is to improve vegetation conditions in crucial mule deer winter range, transition range and fawning ranges. Prescribed fires reduce conifer where it is encroaching on native aspen stands and stimulates new aspen growth. It is a beneficial management tool used to replicate natural wildfire, and can help return the ecosystem to its natural composition and healthiest function.

Fire crews will implement a number of burning tactics to start and control the burns. Smoke will be visible to the public during the operations. For public safety, fire crews will remain on scene and monitor the burn areas afterward to ensure the fire is completely out. For more information, contact Mark Randall at (307) 367-5350 or visit the Pinedale Field Office located at 1625 West Pine Street in Pinedale.


Wolf News Roundup 6/12/2019 (posted 6/13/19)
Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
Wyoming wolf conflict
USDA Wildlife Services (WS-Wyoming) has issued its decision for wolf conflict management in Wyoming. The agency had prepared an environmental assessment analyzing "the potential environmental impacts of alternatives for WS-Wyoming’s response to requests for assistance to reduce adverse impacts on livestock and other domestic animals, property damage, and wolf-related threats to human health and safety in Wyoming as requested and authorized by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD), the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA), the Eastern Shoshone Tribe, or the Northern Arapaho Tribe. The EA was prepared in cooperation with the WGFD and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and in consultation with the WDA, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Northern Arapaho Tribe."

The decision document continues the federal agency’s role in wolf conflict management activities, with a few changes. The agency will increase reporting requirements for instances where WS-Wyoming recommends the use of nonlethal methods, cooperator use of nonlethal methods, and limits the annual maximum number of wolves removed for wolf damage management by the agency in Wyoming.

Moving beyond reintroduction
The Idaho Rangeland Resources Commission’s five-part series on wolves looked at how wolf reintroduction and recovery have affected people in Idaho. Read IRRC chair Royce Schwenkfelder’s recap and commentary at the link provided below.

Oregon’s plan
The Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife adopted changes to its wolf management plan that require the use of non-lethal methods to deter predators prior to wolf control, and only allows lethal control as an option if a wolf is involved in at least two confirmed attacks in a nine-month period.

Washington review
Washington State Representative Joel Kretz successfully pushed legislation that requires a statewide analysis of the status of wolves in the state to see if a change in conservation status is warranted. Washington has a state-endangered species law. The bill also provides funding for wolf deterrents and responding to conflicts.

France cull
The wolf population in France has increased to about 530 animals, a 23-percent increase from the year before, and French officials have decided to up the country’s wolf cull from 10-12 percent of the population to 17-19 percent of the population.

Prescribed burn planned for West Fortification Rx (posted 5/25/19)
Burns planned for near White Pine Ski Area and N Cottonwood Creek
Bridger-Teton National Forest
PINEDALE, WYOMING – The Bridger-Teton National Forest is planning to conduct a prescribed burn on the Pinedale Ranger District in June, as environmental conditions become conducive.

The West Fortification Mountain Rx is located adjacent to White Pine Ski Area approximately 10 miles north of Pinedale, Wyoming. Crews will ignite the 190-acre unit by hand using drip torches. Implementation will take one to two days and mop-up and monitoring efforts will take one to two weeks. Public information will be available on site in the White Pine parking lot during ignitions.

This burn is part implementation of the Skyline Wildland Urban Interface Fuels Reduction Project to remove hazardous fuels build up and increase firefighter and public safety in the event of a wildfire. Additional resource benefits include aspen enhancement/restoration, Douglas fir restoration, old growth tree enhancement and reduced hazard trees near powerlines and communication sites.

Fire managers are also hoping to burn the Cottonwood II Rx on the Big Piney Ranger District, in mid to late June. This 155-acre unit is located approximately 20 miles west of Daniel, Wyoming on Sjhoberg Creek on the north side of North Cottonwood Creek drainage.

Objectives include, increase aspen stand regeneration, reduce conifer encroachment, increase forage conditions for wildlife habitat and reduce hazardous fuels build-up while restoring fire-adaptive ecosystems. This vegetation treatment is an interagency cooperative effort with Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Sublette County Unified Fire and Teton Interagency Fire.

Actual ignitions for these burns will depend on meeting strict parameters for weather and fire behavior conditions. Smoke will be visible from Hwy 191/189, Pinedale and surrounding area during the ignition phase and for a short time after lighting has been completed. No closures are anticipated with these projects.

For more information on prescribed fire, fuels reduction projects, and defensible space, visit www.tetonfires.com or call the Pinedale Ranger District at (307) 367-4326.

Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
Wolf delisting comment period
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has extended the comment period for its proposal to remove gray wolves in the contiguous United States from the list of federally protected species.

According to a press release from the agency: "The Service is extending by 60 days the public comment period on a proposed rule to remove the gray wolf from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife under the Endangered Species Act. We are extending the comment period to allow all interested parties additional time to comment on the proposal."

Comments must be received on or before July 15, 2019. Full details are provided at the link below.

Oregon
The Trump administration’s proposal to remove gray wolves from the list of federally protected species drew the support of the head of Oregon’s wildlife department, but the governor of that state issued a letter overriding the wildlife department, instead declaring that "The state of Oregon and its agencies do not support the delisting of wolves…"

Washington
Washington state officials are assessing whether to relocate wolves from the eastern portion of the state to the western region where no breeding wolf population currently exists. Wolves in the eastern one-third of Washington were removed from federal protections in 2011, but remain federally protected in the remainder of the state. Wolves throughout Washington are also subject to a state endangered species law.

Outfitter permit contested
A Jackson Hole outfitter illegally killed a wolf last year, and now the Humane Society of the United States has request that his outfitting license be revoked. Click on the link below for the article in the Jackson Hole News & Guide.
