BLM Pinedale seeks volunteers for bald eagle survey (posted 12/7/2023)
Bureau of Land Management
The Bureau of Land Management Pinedale Field Office is seeking volunteers to assist with a national mid-winter bald eagle survey on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2024.

Volunteers should call the Pinedale BLM Field Office by Thursday, Jan. 4, 2024 to be assigned survey routes along public roads in Sublette County, Wyoming, and receive instructions on survey methods and eagle identification. Two-person observation teams are needed so that one person can safely drive while the other observes and documents eagles.

Since 1979, federal and state agencies as well as volunteers from the public have counted bald eagles throughout the U.S. every January. By monitoring and estimating national and regional count trends, an index of the total winter bald eagle population in the lower 48 states has been established. For more information, please contact Theresa Gulbrandson at 307-367-5359.


Jill Tegeler
Obituary Ė Jill Tegeler (posted 12/5/2023)
Jill Mary Tegeler, born on October 2, 1942, in Milwaukee, WI, departed from this world on November 30, 2023, in Pinedale, WY.

Jill's journey began with a passion for education, and she graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a degree in Education. Her adventurous spirit led her to Cheyenne, WY, where she taught at Saint Maryís High School. It was there that she met the love of her life, Don Tegeler, and on June 15, 1968, they exchanged vows in Milwaukee.

In 1973, Jill and Don made their home in Pinedale where Jill transitioned her career to real estate and found great success taking over Allen Agency and becoming an integral part of the Wyoming Real Estate Association. Jill's commitment extended to community service, contributing to the Sublette County Chamber, The Food Basket among many others.

Her faith was central to her life, and she served in various roles at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church. Later, she continued her volunteer work with students at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Tucson during winter retreats.

Jill had a remarkable ability to connect with people, and she cherished the many friendships she cultivated over the years. Her love for Wyoming was manifested in her enjoyment of hiking in the Wind River Mountains and cross-country skiing. Jill was a devoted supporter and fan of her children and grandchildren, attending their sporting events with enthusiasm and spirit.

Jill is survived by her brother, Jack Bardeen of Eagan, MN, her son, Kelly (Denise) Tegeler, daughter Kerry (Jay) Majhanovich, and three granddaughters: Shelbi Tegeler, Maggie Majhanovich, and Mandy Majhanovich all of Pinedale, WY.

Services will be held Saturday, Dec 16th at Our Lady of Peace at 11 am, with lunch to follow at 42 Broken Hills Dr in Pinedale. In lieu of flowers, Jill's favorite charities were The Food Basket of Pinedale or Our Lady of Peace in Pinedale. Jillís memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her, and her legacy of kindness, adventure, and compassion will be a lasting tribute to her remarkable spirit.


Seeking volunteer firefighters
Seeking volunteer firefighters (posted 12/5/2023)
Shad Cooper, Fire Chief, Sublette County Unified Fire
Sublette County Unified Fire is currently recruiting volunteer firefighters. Each of the six fire stations in Sublette County are staffed with dedicated volunteers who take their responsibility seriously. Imagine if there was no one available to help when someone calls 911 to report an emergency. That is why it is so important to recruit volunteer firefighters and help protect our neighbors and communities when it is most needed.

Volunteer firefighters come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and genders. There are men and women of all ages who volunteer in a variety of roles. Retirees, teachers, industrial workers, business owners, health care workers, retail sales workers, laborers, administrative professionals, ranchers, students, and many other professions are represented on the fire department. We have several members who have retired from their careers and joined the fire department as a means to stay active in the community. We also have several junior firefighter cadets who gain valuable experience and learn about civic responsibility. Everyone has skills that are important and beneficial as a volunteer firefighter.

Sublette County Unified Fire responds to far more than just house fires. We also answer calls for motor vehicle accidents, wildland fires, hazardous materials incidents, specialized rescues, serious medical accidents, and many other types of emergencies as well. Many of our volunteers appreciate the community involvement and the opportunity to engage in rewarding activities like school presentations, parades, and fireworks displays. Other volunteers like the camaraderie and friendship in the fire department. Others may like belonging to something important with rich history and traditions. Many others volunteer for personal fulfillment and sense of self-worth. Still other firefighters may like the excitement of helping during an emergency. Whatever the reason, there is something for everyone at the fire station.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter can fill out an application and enroll in the upcoming firefighter recruit academy. The recruit academy starts in early January and provides new recruits with the necessary basic knowledge and hands-on training to be safe while responding to emergencies. As part of the academy, firefighters will learn about things like fire behavior, suppression, hoses & nozzles, ropes & knots, ladders, extinguishers, rescue tools, technical rescue skills, and fire investigations. The recruit academy is designed to work around the schedules of the volunteer firefighters so it doesnít conflict with work schedules or family activities.

For more information about becoming a member of the fire department, please contact the administrative offices of Sublette County Unified Fire at 307-367-4550. We are happy to answer any questions from anyone interested in joining.
