Grizzly Bears relocated away from Pinedale (posted 7/30/14)
Wyoming Game & Fish
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped and relocated an adult female grizzly bear with a cub of the year July 28, 2014. The bears were captured for killing livestock on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment north of Pinedale, Wyoming.
In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Shoshone National Forest, the bears were relocated to the Fox Creek drainage of the Clarks Fork River approximately 15 miles northwest of Crandall, Wyoming. The release site is located in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.
Grizzly bear relocation is a management tool afforded bear management personnel to minimize conflicts between humans and grizzlies. The decision to relocate and the selection of a relocation site is made taking into consideration the age, sex, and type of conflict the bear was involved in. Since grizzly bears are listed as "Threatened" under the Endangered Species Act, consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the appropriate land management agency is also made to minimize the chance of future conflicts and maximize the survival potential of the relocated grizzlies. Bears are relocated in accordance with federal law and regulation. When selecting a relocation site, the department makes every consideration to minimize potential conflicts with livestock and people.
Bears can create conflicts after they have obtained food rewards. The department continues to stress the importance of keeping all attractants (food items, horse feeds, bird seed, and others) unavailable to bears. Reducing attractants reduces human-bear conflicts.
Presentation on underage drinking and drug use trends Sept. 1 in Pinedale (posted 7/30/14)
Sublette County Prevention Coalition
The Sublette County Prevention Coalition and the Prevention Management Organization will offer a free presentation on underage drinking, alcohol, clothing trends and drug trends from 6:30-8 p.m. on Monday, September 1 at the Hampton Inn in Pinedale. The presenter is Officer Jermaine Galloway (A Tall Cop Says Stop), an Idaho law enforcement officer since 1997 who has more than 11 years experience in underage drinking, drug and alcohol enforcement.
This free presentation will open your eyes to what is around you as a parent, and community member. Galloway’s presentation also covers current clothing trends of youth and young adults. Many of these clothing items are purchased unknowingly – and thus support drug financed companies and gang-related support. Many fashion trends also promote drug and alcohol symbols and behavior, unknowing to many parents but a symbol to the community. Galloway presents information that all parents, school teachers and police officers, counselors, nurses and anyone who works with our youth should know and understand.
At 6-foot, 9-inches tall, Galloway looks like an intimidating presence, but he is devoted and passionate about education, training and enforcement when it comes to alcohol and drug use and abuse prevention. Officer Galloway is a nationally and internationally recognized instructor and is well known for his countless hours of research on alcohol and drug trends.
Officer Galloway has worked several different assignments, including: crime scene investigation (CSI), DUI task force, officer mentoring and as a field training officer. He has coordinated and led thousands of alcohol related initiatives. He currently provides nationwide training to police officers, prevention personnel, educators, counselors, parents, treatment providers, health professionals and community coalition members on alcohol and drug trends, drug identifiers, drug clothing, party patrols, party drugs, Fake ID's, drug concealment, alcohol and energy drinks, drug logos, synthetic drugs, drug concentrates, non-traditional ways of alcohol consumption, cough medicine abuse, alcohol laws, drug stash compartments, popular culture music, and other community based alcohol and drug initiatives.
Galloway also spends much of his time speaking to youth on the harms of underage drinking, drug abuse and tobacco. Each year Jermaine has spent countless hours talking to youth at school assembly’s and town hall meetings. Currently, Galloway has trained more than 50,000 people nationwide and internationally.

Wildfire activity report (posted 7/27/14)
Two lightning-caused fires are burning in the Upper Green River Valley area.
The Bang Creek fire was discovered in the Bacon Ridge (Union Pass) and Gros Ventre area over the weekend, it is currently at 52 acres in size. Smoke is visible from the Green River and New Fork Lakes area. This fire is being allowed to fill its natural place on the forest landscape. Fire activity is reported to having moderate spread potential burning in aspen, mixed conifer and subalpine Fir.
The Scab Creek wildfire was first reported on Thursday, July 24th burning approximately 11 miles east of Boulder, Wyoming in the Scab Creek Wilderness Study Area. It is about 150 yards from the Bridger Wilderness boundary. It has has burned approximately 1/4 acre of timber, brush and grass in steep, inaccessible terrain in the Silver Creek drainage. The fire is creeping and smoldering, but producing significant smoke due to heavy timber. Based on current and expected weather as well as concern for firefighter safety due to the extreme topography, the fire will remain in monitor status unless fire activity increases. If this occurs, minimum impact suppression tactics will be used with safety remaining the number one priority.
Outdoor recreationists are urged to use caution or avoid these areas entirely since fire behavior can change suddenly and fire spread is unpredictable if high winds develop. Fire managers advise to be cautious when traveling in these areas and be aware of signage. For more wildfire information visit www.tetonfires.com and to report a wildfire, call Teton Interagency Fire at 307-739-3630.

The Town of Pinedale invites the public to check out their new website. It’s at the same domain address, www.townofpinedale.us. Online information includes contact information for Town staff, a calendar of events with dates of upcoming meetings for the Town Council and boards, licensing requirements, Planning & Zoning permits and regulations, parks & recreation information, Town code, online bill pay, links to other useful information, and more.

The annual fee for the website is $4,340 which includes 24/7, 365-day tech support, secure off-site hosting, use of software for local access to update the pages, and a free redesign after five years.

White Pine season lift passes on sale (posted 7/20/14)
White Pine Resort
Lift passes for winter 2014/15 at White Pine Resort are now on sale. Priced at $245 for an adult (18-69 years old), pre-season lift purchases in July represent a 45% saving on the price of a season pass on opening day. The early discount continues through to July 31st. Student (13-18) and Senior (70+) season passes are $195.00, Junior (6-12) are $145.00 and child (5 and under) is $40.00.
To help promote the early discounts, White Pine Resort will be holding "Funday Sundays" on July 27th and August 24 at the resort, offering complimentary hamburgers and hot dogs with live musical entertainment. Additionally the lifts will be operating for mountain bike enthusiasts and hikers wanting to enjoy a free ride up to the top of Fortification Mountain and make their own way down. "We are looking forward to meeting our local skiing population and we wanted to tempt them with some great pre-season prices. Purchase early and enjoy the savings" says new co-owner Roy DeWitt.
New for 2014/15 is a cancellation waiver priced at $10.00. "Purchase your season pass now and if for any reason, you are unable to ski this season, we will provide a full refund. People get transferred, injured or simply change their mind. If a season-pass holder buys the waiver and contacts White Pine before November 30, 2014 requesting a refund, they will receive their money back, no questions asked" says co-owner Alan Blackburn.
White Pine Resort will also be offering ski rental season packages. "As parents of young children, we know how quickly our children outgrow their shoes and at White Pine we want to cater to that need by making equipment changes available throughout the winter with seasonal equipment packages" says DeWitt. "We will have a shipment of skis and snowboards arriving in the fall and we will have skis and snowboards available for rent for all age groups" promises DeWitt. Ski rental season packages start at $99.00.
And for those who are tired of lugging gear up to the mountain, White Pine will be offering a number of 6’ ski lockers available for rent. Priced at $110 for the winter, it will mean somewhere to pick up or leave skis and poles close to the lifts.
Full details on pricing can be found on the "White Pine Season Passes 2014-15" mail-in form available at Rock Rabbit and Office Outlet in Pinedale. Phone 307-367-6606 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of the mail-in form.
