Wind River Brewing moving brewing operations to Evanston, Wyoming (posted 4/27/16)
Wind River Brewing Company of Pinedale will be expanding their brewing operations to Evanston, Wyoming. They will be moving into the historic Roundhouse building, built in the early 1900s to service railroad locomotives used by the Union Pacific Railroad. The unique building is now owned by the City of Evanston and one section of the building has been restored and is being used as a meeting and convention center. It is a big attraction in the town. Three other sections of the Roundhouse remain unrestored, but provide a huge expanse of floor and high ceiling space for potential future use. Wind River Brewing will take two of those open sections for their new brewing operations.

The City of Evanston recently received news that the State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) has awarded them $3 million in a community development grant towards completing the restoration of the historic Roundhouse. The grant will be used to complete the masonry, windows and doors for the outside façade of the remainder of the Roundhouse. Wind River Brewing will build a larger brewery, have a restaurant, tasting room and gift shop in their space. They plan to keep their brewery and restaurant in Pinedale as well.

First Annual Battle of the Gyms (posted 4/27/16)
Terry Allen
Andrew Zook, owner of Wyoming Athlete Development in Pinedale, put on the First Annual ‘Battle of the Gyms’ in Pinedale on Saturday, April 23, 2016. Five teams of six athletes each from Wyoming participated in the competition. Team Iron Kitchen from Alpine, Two teams from GYM22 in Jackson, and Team PAC and Team Wyoming Athlete Development from Pinedale competed in Powerlifting, Strongman and Endurance events.

Bright blue skies greeted competitors Saturday morning, but a low dark line of roiling storm clouds threatened from the western horizon. The building wind added extra swing to the pony-tail on the back of Kendall Brunette’s head as she did high-kicking warm-ups in the parking lot.

The booming tunes provided by DJ Ben Davis welcomed participants into the gym and made toddlers and athletes break out spontaneously with their dance moves. The music seemed to make the building walls pulsate. Ben gave the photographer his best DJ pose. "I lift to stay in shape and stay active and so my wife won’t leave me," he said. "I’ve been working out over 10 years. I work out at the high school gym…drop by sometime. We’ve got a pretty good bunch of guys over there."

Metal plates clanged as they were slid onto bars; hands were thrust deep into the talc bucket labeled ‘puke bucket’ and then clapped together creating great white clouds as they knocked off the extra. Athletes got set and then dramatically lifted impossible weights over their heads and then dropped them with great crashes that shook the floor.

Outside on a sprint course, athletes picked up either 75 or 100 pound beer kegs, large welding tanks weighing 130 pounds each, one in each hand for a total of 260 pounds, and great barbells loaded with well over 100 pounds each.

As the sky turned black and the first few raindrops appeared, the teams of six took turns with each of the three devices and made their way down the course and back as fast as they could. Unlucky for Team PAC and Codie Bush, one of her male teammates took off jogging with her 75 pound keg, so she had to carry the 100 pound keg, which equaled her own body weight, down the course. But it worked out okay because the photographer got some really great face agony shots.

A large iron sled weighing a minimum of 110 pounds was loaded with more weight for successive runs until it weighed 235 pounds. Each team had to push the ever increasingly weighted sled the length of the skating rink in the west parking lot until everyone had their turn. There was a bit of vomiting or a serious threat of vomiting after a few of those killer pushes.

The next event was the truck pull. The truck turned out to be a big bobtail water tanker attached to an arm sized rope. The first team to try to pull the truck across the finish line was the PAC team. Andrew yelled ‘go’ and pulled the trigger on his stop watch and the team gave the rope a mighty tug…then about 3 or 4 successively mightier tugs, but the truck didn’t budge. Finally, someone got with the driver Mike and they figured out the air brake release hadn’t been pushed in all the way. Problem solved, Team PAC put their backs into it and hand over hand dragged the big truck across the finish line.

Back inside, a steady line of athletes took turns climbing the rope tied off on a high metal beam. When they got to the top, they gave the beam a quick slap and took the elevator down.

The finale of the day’s event was The Death March. A quarter mile course was laid out in the large dirt lot to the west of the skating rink. The teams pulled and dragged the iron sled, carried or rolled the 90 pound Atlas stone and carried or dragged the 110 pound anvil around the now muddy course. Every 15 seconds the athletes had to drop or stop their weighted items and drop into the dirt, mud and a suspicious white spill, and do push-ups, jumping jacks, and burpee’s for 15 seconds. Then get back up and start pushing and carrying their burdens.

The far end of the course had 6 or 8 dirt berms, approximately 3 feet high that they had to drag, push, roll or carry all the weight over…while slipping in the mud created by the now freezing rain and snow blizzard.

Sopping wet, frozen, and gasping in exhaustion; each muddy and bloody team collapsed into the weeds across the finish line...to the delight of the also soaked and frozen photographer whose main goal was to capture the essence of their struggle.

Not one to make anything easy, event host Andrew Zook only awarded one prize; and that went to champions GYM22 of Jackson. "The battle of the gyms proved to be one of the most extreme team competitions I have ever put on," Andrew said. "I was impressed with how hard these teams were able to push through the pain and agony of these events just to be crowned champions. Not one team bowed out or gave minimal effort. Because of the nature of this event the athletes could only prepare so much until they had to just let the mind take over and go beyond what the body could do. This was a great event to host in Pinedale and just the beginning of what Wyoming Athlete Development plans to bring to this great community."

Kendall Brunette of Team PAC was wet and bloodied but enthusiastic as ever. "This competition provided an awesome opportunity to showcase the strength and dedication of local athletes. Thanks to the Zooks for putting the event together -- I hope it is the first of many!"

Doug Wellemeyer, who at first glance one might take for being one of the most dangerous looking of the athletes, also turned out to be one of the most polite. He regularly tried not to cross in front of the photographer as he was shooting, and said ‘excuse me’ a lot. But he also knew the value of looking right into the lens when the camera was turned on him. As a result, we got some great images. "I’ve been competing like this for 8 years," said Doug. "This event is a tune-up for The Strongman event in July at Rendezvous."

Unable to run down the author of the following quote before posting this story, it will nevertheless be included. A member of the Jackson GYM22 team, a Marine, is rumored to have said that this event was tougher than anything he’d ever seen in the Marines.

Wyoming Legislature update – April 25, 2016 (posted 4/25/16)
Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers reporting to you from the Sommers ranch calving pastures. I do not believe that I have ever seen such an early spring. I hope we continue to get some beneficial moisture, as that helps cattle, wildlife, meadows, and lawns. There are a few issues that I would like to update the community on.

On May 9th and 10th, the Joint Corporations Committee of the Legislature will meet in Lander, at the Inn of Lander. At 1:15 on the 9th, the committee will discuss the issue of county residents participating in municipal elections. I have been contacted by several property owners in Pinedale about their inability to vote on municipal issues that affect their property rights and wallet. I had the Legislative Service Office research this issue almost two years ago, and they found that Colorado has a statute that addresses this concern. Colorado allows municipalities, by charter ordinance, the ability to grant qualified non-resident property owners the right to vote in municipal elections. This is strictly a home rule decision in Colorado, which a town council would make of its own volition. Qualified voters have to meet certain age, citizenship, residency, and ownership requirements, and any similar effort by Wyoming should have strict criteria for participation. I asked the Legislative Service Office to draft a bill based upon the Colorado law, but have not filed the bill during a session because I wanted the idea to be vetted thoroughly through a legislative interim by citizens, clerks, and municipalities. Prior to this last session, I was contacted by a Senator from eastern Wyoming who was interested in a similar idea. I have also been approached about expanding municipal voting rights to citizens within some defined radius of a town, one to five miles. One mile has some justification due to a town’s ability to deny a subdivision plat within one mile of its border, thus affecting private property rights of those who cannot participate in the election of decision makers, but I am more supportive of qualified property owners. We presented these ideas to the House and Senate Corporations Committee Chairman, and the concept was placed on the interim study list. Some of the municipalities in Sublette County support this increased flexibility, provided towns make the decision, but some municipalities do not like the concept. Everyone will have the opportunity to voice their concern or support for increased municipal voting flexibility on May 9th. Unfortunately, I will not be at this May 9thmeeting, because the Select Committee on Statewide Education Accountability meets that day in Casper. I serve on that select committee. If you want to provide comments on the municipal voting issue, but cannot make the meeting, please send me your thoughts via e-mail. Pro or con, I will send the chairmen your comments. My e-mail is albert@albertsommers.com.

I have never been a big fan of state level education accountability, because I believe that is the role of local school boards. Two years prior to my arrival in the Legislature, Wyoming passed a comprehensive bill mandating the creation of an accountability model for Wyoming schools. This statewide accountability effort had been pushed at a federal level, and was part of a national reform movement for K12 education. I will never believe that legislators and state bureaucrats know more about educating children than do the teachers and administrators hired by local citizen boards. Phase I of Wyoming’s education accountability program, school accountability, is fully in place, and utilizes the statewide assessment to grade school performance. If Wyoming simply uses this system as a way to shine a light on those schools needing support, and then if the state can provide some meaningful support, this will be a successful endeavor. Phase II of education accountability is teacher and leader accountability, and would attempt to grade teachers and principals at a state level. In my opinion, this is a local school board’s job, and the state should not be involved in those decisions. At the May 9th and 10th meeting of Select Accountability, we will discuss topics like Phase II accountability, Wyoming’s next statewide assessment, and alternative school accountability. I have been vocal about eliminating Phase II, and need to be at the meeting to continue to support that position.

This past session, I was a co-sponsor of a bill that raised the speed limit on highways from 65MPH to 70MPH. As someone who travels the long stretches of road in Wyoming, I look forward to the new speed limit. However, in recent weeks, I have received multiple comments about the effect this raise in speed limit will have on migrating big game in Sublette County. Certain stretches of highways in Sublette County already see high big game fatalities, and I certainly do not want to see that exacerbated by this higher speed limit. I visited recently with a communication specialist for the Wyoming Department of Transportation, and she assured me that the department will monitor wildlife collisions, and that they have the authority to reduce speed limits based upon local conditions. I have often thought that a reduced speed limit during night time hours would help reduce collisions in these migration areas. I will continue to pursue the issue of lowering speed limits in these critical wildlife movement areas, especially the moose corridor between Boulder and Pinedale. Please e-mail me any concerns or questions on these or other issues.

Thank you
Albert

Pinocchio Comes to Town (posted 4/19/16)
Terry Allen
The Missoula Children’s Theatre came to Sublette County Friday night, April 15, and put on their version of Pinocchio, using child actors from our own community.

Pinocchio was written in 1883 by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. It is a story of a woodcarver named Geppetto from a small northern Italian village near Florence. Geppetto carves a wooden puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy. The play follows Pinocchio as he grows into a real boy, but who is prone to telling lies and fabricating stories as he learns life’s lessons along the way.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre was founded 40 years ago and this year will send out a fleet of little red trucks loaded with sets and costumes and work with 65,000 children in more than 1200 communities in all 50 states and 17 countries.

Mandy Corbett from New York and California, who was acting as the Director for this show, is an actor herself. She recently graduated from Pacific Conservatory Theatre. "I auditioned for this job because I wanted to learn the tools and strategy required to put on shows in one week," she said. "It is pretty intensive learning experience. We drive to a town and in about 14 hours of practice over several days, we are able to put on an exciting show with kids who may never have been on stage before."

Andrew Yabroff who was a working actor in Chicago for three years decided he wanted to travel with his acting. He also successfully auditioned for the job. "I switch off acting and directing duties with Mandy every two weeks," he said. "Tonight I’ll be playing both Geppetto and Stromboli. After the play, we will ask for volunteers to help pack up our truck and then in the morning we’ll hit the road and be putting on another play in a few days."

Emma Liske played a clown and said the thing she liked the most was making people smile.

Keegan Hankins acted as a street urchin and liked the face paint and the costume.

John Covill, who played Jiminy Cricket, said he liked to be able to jump around and yell a lot. "But, I didn’t agree with the makeup part," he said. "I had to wear lipstick."

Adrienne Jones, who played a Baby Doll, said she was a pro now. "I got to speak," she said. "It was a speaking role. I want to see the video."

Bridger Kaiser was in the audience and said his favorite characters were the Toys and the Foxes.

Matty Lea really enjoyed her role. I was a Tot Soldier," she said. "I was great at marching. I saluted and marched."

Hannah Kaiser ran into a few problems. I played a Baby Doll," she said. "But, the pants were too long and the bonnet choked me. But, I’m happy except for the pants."

Sidney Wise, who played Pinocchio, said she was surprised to get the part. "I just tried out for the role and did my best," she said. "I had some experience in the past because I played Peach Fuzz a gay pirate in Blackbeard. What I like most about Pinocchio was being able to do all the falling on the stage. I also met some very amazing people. I was a little nervous, but when I heard the audience laughing and clapping it made it easy and fun."

A special thanks to Arnie Brokling who for the price of a beer, allowed me to use his photo of Pinocchio.

Fishing Report – April, 2016 (posted 4/17/16)
Mike Kaul, Two Rivers Emporium
Most streams around Pinedale have shucked off their ice cover and in the lower parts of our valleys there is a lot of open water. Fishable stream water will increase daily, but most of the lakes are still solid blocks of ice. Sections of the Green and New Fork Rivers present good fishing opportunities. This may be one of those seasons where we get some excellent pre-runoff fishing. Even with low water temperatures the fish will move on big streamer patterns. It is a good idea to trail a weighted dark nymph behind the streamer to get your offering deep into the water column where a lot of the lethargic trout will be holding. We have very little accumulated snow in the lower valleys, but there is a good snow pack high in the Wyoming Range and the Wind River Mountains. If the projected weather patterns hold for the next several weeks, we should see good fishing opportunities in late April and early May. After a traditional runoff in June, we will have some excellent fly fishing beginning in early July and continuing through September.

One thing is certain, the weather and water conditions will change periodically throughout the next several weeks. Please feel free to contact us for current fishing and water projections. (307-367-4131 or e-mail 2rivers@wyoming.com)
