What's New with Wyoming Cowgirl
On the Ranch?
Each week, 'Wyoming Cowgirl' Cris Paravicini writes about her experiences on their ranch on the Green River north of Daniel. Cris has developed a following On the Ranchof folks who read her accounts regularly each week. If you haven't discovered her site, we invite you to visit her at www.wyomingcowgirl.com for a real treat. Her down-home writing style is unique and refreshing! What's new this week? Cris has pictures of the Daniel Social (which she helped organize) and unveiling of the new Daniel book. Later, they rounded up the cattle from Horse Creek to bring them in for calving season. She comments that they acted very scared of something and kept looking over their shoulders, wild-eyed and more than happy to head home. What do you suppose had them all stirred up?

Boaters Encouraged to Register their Boats Now
Both new boat owners and renewals are encouraged to register early and to submit all the required paperwork, says Maggie Barnes, who oversees boat registrations for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. In Wyoming, all boats equipped with a motor of over five horsepower must be registered.  Barnes reminds new boat owners to submit a notarized bill of sale, dealer's invoice and proof of sales tax payment with their registration form. All owners are urged to register early to make sure they are ready to launch when lakes open up. Barnes encourages boaters to take advantage of the 3-year registration. "That way boaters only have to deal with the application every three years and get to save a little money by doing it," she said.
   Boat registration is $15 annually or $40 for three years. Forms are available from G&F offices, license agents and on the "fishing page" of the G&F website at gf.state.wy.us.

Check the Results of the Hunting Draw Online
The Wyoming Game & Fish Department is posting the results of the big game hunting license draw on their web site. Hunters should receive their official notification of the draw results in the mail within 15 days of the drawing. Hunters can also call the Game & Fish during regular business hours, to ger the results. This phone call costs $5 per call, and you must be 18 to call. Get the draw results from their web site at: http://gf.state.wy.us/HTML/hunting/licensedraw.htm

Pinedale Roundup Newspaper continued...
The first issue of the new Pinedale Roundup came out last Thursday, February 22nd, under the new staff. The paper sports a new masthead featuring a graphic of local Cowboy Joseph "Tobe" Houston in his western attire from the early 1900s. Houston was a cowboy who spent many years living in the Daniel area. The Pinedale Roundup will be undergoing changes in appearance and content over the next couple of weeks as the new staff settles in and is able to incorporate the new redesigns. Last week they hit the ground running transitioning from the Journal, moving to their new building, and putting the week's paper together on time. We look forward to seeing the new look and coverage as the new staff gets on their feet again gearing up for a larger paper each week. Stories from the Pinedale Roundup will appear on Pinedale Online front page where the Sublette County Journal stories were. The old stories from the Sublette County Journal have been archived and can be found at http://meek.sublette.com/scj

Wyoming Game & Fish Contributes to County Tax Coffers
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department paid over $203,000 of property taxes to counties in 2000, a $2,500 increase from 1999, according to a recent press release from the WG&F Department. The G&F pays property taxes on all real estate, which includes habitat areas, offices, warden stations, fish hatcheries and bird farms. "To some degree there's the misconception that Game and Fish real estate purchases remove land from the tax rolls," said G&F Fiscal Chief Larry Gabriele. "But the Game and Fish, like private businesses and unlike most other government agencies, pays property taxes on all the land and buildings it owns."
 All counties received G&F property tax payments. The amounts ranged from $49,888 paid to Fremont County to $289 in Weston County. Other leading county payments were Teton $19,619, Park $17,534, Laramie $17,511, Sheridan $15,989 and Natrona $11,577. Since 1992, the G&F property tax bill has increased $70,000.
 In addition to property taxes, the G&F also distributed $21,265 in irrigation fees between Big Horn, Fremont, Goshen, Lincoln, Sublette and Washakie counties. The largest fee, $10,027, was paid to Fremont County. Irrigation fees increased by $36 in 2000. -Wyoming Game & Fish Department

Lakeside Lodge Submits Master Development Plan for Proposed Expansion
Lakeside Lodge, located on Fremont Lake northeast of Pinedale, has submitted a proposal to the Pinedale Ranger District to substantially expand their current facilities over the next ten years. Lakeside Lodge operates under a National Forest Special Use Permit from the U.S. Forest Service. Proposed new facilities include 15 small log duplex cabins, four large log duplex family cabins with kitchens, a motel/lodge with 40 total rental rooms, 30 RV sites, 39 slip marina, three small employee cabins, a lakefront recreational area and multi-purpose pavilion, and improved and expanded parking. 
  Current facilities at the resort include a two-story lodge that was renovated in 1996, four log duplex cabins, a 31-slip marina and refueling dock, 20 RV sites, and boat trailer parking area. Copies of the proposed expansion are available from the Pinedale Ranger District Forest Service office.
  An Environmental analysis has been initiated to assess issues and determine possible environmental impacts of the proposed developments and possible alternatives. The Forest Service is soliciting comments regarding concerns, support or opposition to the proposal. Comments should be sent in to the Forest Service by February 28, 2001. Mail to: B-T District Ranger Bob Reese, PO Box 220, Pinedale, WY 82941. For more information, contact Dave Swank at the Pinedale Ranger District at 307-367-4326.

Continental Divide National Scenic Trail
The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail runs for over 3,000 miles from Canada to Mexico. Approximately 200 miles of the Trail is in Wyoming in the Bridger-Teton and Shoshone National Forests, from South Pass to Yellowstone National Park. 
   The Wyoming section of the trail ranges from around 7,500 to 11,000 feet, traversing the length of the Wind River Range and crossing the west slope of the Absarokas. The trail is usually open from late July through September, depending on the previous winter's snowpack. About 80 miles of this section is above treeline and over half is within designated wilderness, 53 miles in the Teton Wilderness and 70 miles in the Bridger Wilderness. Black bears range throughout the mountains in northwest Wyoming, and most of the area between the northern Wind River Range and Yellowstone Park is grizzly bear country. 
   Full-service communities close to this section of trail include Pinedale, Jackson, Lander and Dubois. Potential re-supply points are at South Pass, Big Sandy, Green River Lakes and Togwotee Pass. Visitors are strongly encouraged to check with local Forest Service offices for current conditions along the trail for the dates they wish to hike. Topographic maps, camping equipment, food and stove fuel can be found at the towns close to the trail.
   A booklet describing the Wyoming section of the Trail, "Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, A Visitor's Guide for the Wyoming Section between South Pass and Yellowstone Park", is available from the Bridger-Teton National Forest. More information is available from the Pinedale Ranger District, PO Box 220, Pinedale, WY 82941, 307-367-4326.

Game & Fish Urges Caution for Ice Fishing
Ice fishing is a wonderful activity for the avid outdoors person, but the Game and Fish Department recommends anglers use extreme caution anytime they venture out on the ice. "Ice conditions on Wyoming's lakes can change rapidly," said Mike Snigg, Laramie Region fisheries biologist. "Sometimes warm days, which deteriorate ice conditions, are followed by bitterly cold days that give the illusion that the ice is safe." It is important to know, not only what current conditions are, but also what recent weather conditions have been before heading out, he said. 
   Ice thickness on lakes is far from uniform and can change quickly. Springs or seeps, wind and changing water levels often create unsafe spots.
  The G&F suggests the following precautions to reduce the chance of an accident:

  • Keep in mind that clear blue ice is stronger than cloudy ice. 
  • Never drive vehicles, ATV's or snow machines onto the ice.
  • Carry a length of rope and wear a personal flotation device.
  • Shuffle or slide your feet, never run.
  • Long nails or spikes tied to a cord and carried around your neck will help you climb out if you do break through the ice.
  • Avoid places near open water or running streams.
Anglers are advised to fish with a friend and to pack an extension ladder in case of an accident. If someone falls through the ice, extend the ladder and push it toward the victim, as you crawl, disperse your weight on the ice. When the victim grasps the ladder rung, slowly start backing up and pull them out of the hole. Once back on the ice, have the victim stay prone, until he or she is safely pulled away from the area. Then immediately get the victim into a warm environment and dry clothes. "Some anglers complain about bulky life preservers," Snigg said. "There are many new types of life jackets and float coats, which are unobtrusive and comfortable. Wearing one may save your life if you break through the ice." -Wyoming Game & Fish Department

Daniel Social debuts the new Daniel book - Sat, Feb 10, 6:30 pm, Daniel Schoolhouse
 The book committee is proud to announce that 780 pages, 811 photos, 30 maps, and 250 livestock brands have come together in the long awaited two-volume book, DANIEL, WYOMING-THE FIRST HUNDRED YEARS, 1900-2000. This epic, numbered, first-edition publication-sure to become a collector's item-will be debuting at the Daniel Social on Saturday, February 10, at 6:30 pm, for $50 per book set. 
   Final book production figures are as follows: Total publication cost, including shipping to Daniel, is $47,959.50. To-date contributions total $35,175.00, leaving an under-balance of $12,784.50. The remaining deficit recently had to be borrowed to allow the release of the books from the publisher, Agreka Books. When the loan is repaid, the balance from the book sales will be given to the Daniel Community Center building fund. Over 300 of the 1,000 books have already been reserved with the remaining volumes expected to disappear like hotcakes before an August haycrew.
   After the Daniel Social, the books will be available at the Daniel Trading Store and the Green River Bar in Daniel for $50 per set. Book signings are being arranged in Pinedale and Big Piney. At a later date, the remaining books will be offered to interested bookstores and other outlets. The price at that time will no doubt increase, so please plan to buy your books early. 
   If you wish to order a book set by mail, make your check payable to the Daniel Community Center in the amount of $50 plus $7 shipping fees per set. Mail to: Book, Box 102, Daniel, WY 83115-0102.
   The book committee says that the book is truly remarkable and wishes to thank the incredibly long list of contributors, who have donated in ways beyond measure towards the realization of this masterpiece. 
   Please plan to attend the BIG Daniel Social where, in addition to celebrating the birthday of both the new book and the town of Daniel, more country fun than you can imagine will happen under one little schoolhouse roof. Together with the high school rodeo club, we'll feed you, laugh with you, dance with you, sing to you, ring bells for you, thank you, and especially, make you feel right at home. 
   And don't forget the dessert auction that same night! Both ladies and gents from near and far will be baking their favorite sweets, all of which will hit the auction block and be offered for sale to the highest bidder. Best of all, the baker goes with the dessert! So, don't miss Bob Beard's luscious Chocolate Cream Pie and Ben Pearson's old-fashioned Scratch Cake. Or, maybe you'll take a fancy to Sonny Alexander's mom-from-Maryland's renowned Carrot Cake, or Mike Vargo's special, after-work Chocolate Pound Cake, or Rudy Paravicini's deluxe Frosted Cherry Pie. And, if you're lucky, you might roll away with one of Dudley Key's famous pies or Russell Nelson's surprise cobblers. We're told that there might even be a Blackberry Cheesecake and Caramel Sticky Buns, and maybe, a German Chocolate Cake. But the real question is...Will Stu McKinley make a pie, will Jim Kiever fry donuts, and will Stan Zierlein bake a batch of FFA Chocolate Chip cookies? Can't say for sure, but, the real icing on the cake is this: The historic Daniel schoolhouse now has indoor bathrooms for your comfort's sake! So, come on out to our town and share in the fun!  (more about the book)

Pinedale Airport Plans for Expansion
The Pinedale Airport Board held a public meeting Wednesday, January 31 at the Pinedale library on the Airport Layout Plan Update and topics concerning planned potential runway expansion. The Airport Layout Plan Update for Pinedale's General Aviation Airport, Ralph Wenz Field, was presented by JPS Aero Consultants Inc, Aviation Planners from Colorado. It reflects possible future runway expansion, hangar development, and other light industrial development when and if needed in the next 20 years. 
   The airport completed a construction project last summer that involved resurfacing of the runway, relocating some of the cross taxiways, upgrading the lighting system, and installing a wildlife fence. Currently the airport is classified as a CII airport and meets all FAA design standards for that classification.  The concern for the future is that the existing 7,100 foot runway length does not meet the design recommendations for that rating, and it is proposed to add 1,800 feet to the existing runway, extending it to 8,900 feet, to meet safety concerns. This expansion would put the end of the runway in the middle of the current Airport Subdivision. Adjacent landowners, and those living in the path of the runway expansion, expressed surprise and concern about the possibility of land acquisitions projected for property located within 2 or 3 miles of the existing or expanded runway, noise concerns, and air traffic increases. 
   According to the latest analysis, the Pinedale airport presently gets 8,600 aircraft "operations" per year, with a landing or a takeoff considered to each be a separate operation. By the year 2005 that number is expected to be 9,173, and by the year 2020 it is projected to be 11,135 operations. Of the current traffic, 92% is local or itinerate use. No air carrier or commuter traffic was recorded. Air Taxi traffic was 600 operations in the year 2000, and military traffic operations was 20 and not expected to increase. 
  This meeting was the only public meeting scheduled on this matter. A preliminary Airport Layout Plan, and all the maps, are available for review at the Pinedale Town Hall, 210 W Pine Street. A set of the Plan maps has been left at Office Outlet in Pinedale for the public to copy. For more details about the Plan, please contact Rick Patton, Aviation Planner for JPS AeroConsultants, Inc at 719-429-0675 or by e-mail at rpatton@ris.net Comments about the proposed plan are being solicited from the public and can be sent to the Pinedale Town Hall at PO Box 709, Pinedale, Wyoming 82941, 307-367-4135, e-mail: top@wyoming.com. Public comments will be included in any future Environmental Impact Statements for the airport expansion and should be sent into the Town before their March Town meeting.

Update on Wild Horse Killings 
Bureau of Land Management law enforcement officers and special agents from several states are continuing to investigate the shooting deaths last month of 37 wild horses in southwest Wyoming. The horses were found in the Rock Springs and Rawlins area. The BLM has conducted overflights of the areas and report that no additional dead horses have been discovered. Law enforcement staff is working long hours to patrol areas and to investigate all leads, but so far no new information has been released regarding possible persons involved in the shootings.

The new Summit BuildingKnotty Pine Plaza gets a Facelift
The Knotty Pine Plaza, now renamed to the Summit Building, is getting a facelift.

The new owners, Summit Investments, New entranceshave a two-phase plan to upgrade the building. Phase I, going on now, is to work on the exterior with repairs to the roof, replacing windows, add entrance ways, and even up the exterior roof line.
