States say Feds meddling in State voter registration process (posted 8/5/2022)
Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Buchanan media release
Secretaries of State Ask President Biden to Rescind Executive Order Inserting Federal Agencies Into State Voter Registration Processes Without Prior Congressional Approval

CHEYENNE, WYOMING – Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Buchanan has joined fourteen other Secretaries of State from across the country jointly signing a letter to President Joe Biden asking him to rescind Executive Order No. 14019, which calls for federal agencies to act beyond their Congressionally-specified functions.

The Executive Order directs federal agencies to develop their own plans to register voters in those states that use an agency's services or programs. The Executive Order further directs those agencies to share these plans with the President without first consulting the states.

The letter cites a lack of Constitutional authority of an Executive Order to direct federal agencies to operate voter registration services beyond their Congressionally-specified functions.

The letter also says that Biden’s Executive Order duplicates voter registration efforts already conducted at the state level, and ignores codified procedures and programs for voter registration outlined in state laws and constitutions.

As the supreme law of the land, the U.S. Constitution clearly indicates that state legislatures, not the President, shall prescribe the way and manner a state manages its election process. Neither the U.S. Constitution nor the National Voter Registration Act include any such grant of executive authority to the President to require federal agency involvement with state-level voter registration processes.

Any actions to reconfigure states’ voter registration duties and responsibilities must be done by Congress or the states themselves, not through the Executive branch. The signatories to the letter contend that the Executive Order erodes the responsibility and duties of their state legislatures.

A complete copy of the letter can be found here.


Wind storm in Pinedale
NWS graphic
Wind storm brings down power in Pinedale (posted 7/23/2022)
Wind gusts up to 51mph were recorded at the Pinedale Airport as a storm blew in Friday evening, July 22nd. Parts of town only had their power flicker while the south end of Pinedale lost power for about two hours.

Rocky Mountain Power reported the cause of the outage was trees blowing over downing power lines. They said about 300 customers in Pinedale lost power for the longer period. The outage was centered in the south Pinedale area including the Fox Willow to New Fork Social Club subdivisions. Business along Pine Street and a few blocks south just had their power flicker and came right back on. Rocky Mountain Power reported a power outage at the same time in the Daniel area impacting 39 customers.

Reports of damage included shingles being blown off a garage roof in the Forty Rod area. Several trees were reported blown over in the Fox Willow subdivision. The Museum of the Mountain Man had two of their small outside shade tents next to the Pavilion picked up and dragged over across the patio into the middle of the parking lot, including the heavy cement blocks that were holding them down to the ground. The tents and support poles were crumpled and destroyed.

The Battle of the Badges annual charity game was being played in Pinedale at the time when the big wind storm hit. This year’s battle featured softball between the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office/Wyoming Highway Patrol and Sublette County Emergency Management Services/Sublette County Unified Fire. The event was held at the new Dudley Key Sports Complex on the west end of Pinedale. The game was nearly over when rain and strong winds caused organizers to make the decision to call the game for safety reasons. The game was 30-27 at the time. A generous donor contributed to end the game and call it a tie. The event raised $1400 for MESA Therapeutic Horsemanship.

Postage rates increase (posted 7/18/2022)
First Class Forever stamp is now 60 cents
Pinedale Online!
In case you didn’t realize it, the rates for postage stamps went up on July 10th. The cost of a first-class Forever stamp rose from 58 cents to 60 cents. A postcard stamp has risen from 40 cents to 44 cents. Other products and services have had price increases as well. The U.S. Postal Service requested the rate increase in April, 2022.

Below is the media release posted on the USPS website:

July 2022 Postage Price Changes
On April 6, 2022, the United States Postal Service® filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) of price changes to take effect July 10, 2022. On June 9, 2022, the PRC announced the approval of changes, which include a two-cent increase in the price of a First-Class Mail Forever stamp from 58 cents to 60 cents.

The proposed prices, approved by the Governors of the U.S. Postal Service, would raise First-Class Mail® prices approximately 6.5 percent, which is lower than the Bureau Labor Statistics annual inflation rate of 7.9 percent as of the end of February. The price changes reflect a judicious implementation of the Postal Service’s pricing authority provided by the PRC.

For information on the July 2022 Competitive Products and International Special Services price changes, see July 2022 Postage Price Changes - Competitive Products and International Special Services.

The new First-Class Mail prices can be summarized as follows:
July 2022 First-Class Mail Prices
First-Class Mail Current Price Proposed Price
One-ounce letter, domestic $0.58 $0.60
Single-piece letter, additional ounce $0.20 $0.24
Metered mail 1-ounce $0.53 $0.57
Postcard stamp $0.40 $0.44
One-ounce letter, international $1.30 $1.40

The Postal Service is also seeking price adjustments for Special Services products including Certified Mail, Post Office Box™ rental fees, Money Order fees and the cost to purchase insurance when mailing an item.

As inflation and increased operating expenses continue, these price adjustments will help with the implementation of the Delivering for America plan, including a $40 billion investment in core Postal Service infrastructure over the next ten years. With the new prices, the Postal Service will continue to provide the lowest letter-mail postage rates in the industrialized world and offer a great value in shipping.

The PRC has reviewed and approved the prices. The complete Postal Service price filing with prices for all products can be found on the PRC site under the Daily Listings section at https://www.prc.gov/dockets/daily. The Mailing Services filing is Docket No. R2022-1. The price change tables are also available on the Postal Service’s Postal Explorer website at https://pe.usps.com/PriceChange/Index.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.

Algae Bloom Advisory issued for Big Sandy and Eden Reservoirs in Wyoming (posted 7/15/2022)
Recreational Use Advisories in place
The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) has issued a harmful cyanobacterial bloom (HCB) recreational use Bloom Advisory for Big Sandy Reservoir and Eden Reservoir based on data provided by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). The WDH is working directly with resource management agencies to ensure that signs are posted at all waterbodies with advisories. Additional details regarding advisory status, including changes to the type of advisory, and other HCB resources can be found at WyoHCBs.org.

The WDH issues recreational use advisories when cyanobacterial cell densities or cyanotoxin concentrations pose a risk to people engaging in swimming or similar water contact activities in areas where cyanobacterial blooms occur. HCBs may also pose a health risk to animals. Bloom Advisories are issued when a HCB is present and toxins may be present. Toxin Advisories are issued when cyanotoxins exceed recreational thresholds. Waterbodies under an advisory are not closed since HCBs may only be present in certain areas and conditions can change frequently. Advisories will remain in place until blooms have fully dissipated and cyanotoxin concentrations are below recreational use thresholds identified in Wyoming's HCB Action Plan.

If you encounter a potential HCB, the Wyoming Department of Health and the Wyoming Livestock Board recommend the following:
• Avoid contact with water in the vicinity of the bloom, especially in areas where cyanobacteria are dense and form scums.
• Do not ingest water from the bloom. Boiling, filtration and/or other treatments will not remove toxins.
• Rinse fish with clean water and eat only the fillet portion.
• Avoid water spray from the bloom.
• Do not allow pets or livestock to drink water near the bloom, eat bloom material, or lick fur after contact.
• If people, pets, or livestock come into contact with a bloom, rinse off with clean water as soon as possible and contact a doctor or veterinarian.

Questions about health effects and recreational use advisories can be directed to Courtney Tillman, Surveillance Epidemiologist, Wyoming Department of Health, at courtney.tillman@wyo.gov or (307) 777-5522. Questions regarding cyanobacteria sampling can be directed to Kelsee Hurshman, Natural Resource Analyst, Wyoming Department of
777-2073.

Fire Danger increases to High (posted 7/14/2022)
Bridger-Teton National Forest
Teton Interagency fire managers have elevated the fire danger rating to high for Grand Teton National Park, the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the National Elk Refuge beginning Wednesday, July 13.

The forecast is for continued warmer and drier weather. Visitors should not be deceived by how green the landscape looks. It is the dead and down timber and fuels that are carrying fire right now prompted fire managers to elevate the fire danger rating. That is what happened on the recent Sandy Fire on the Bridger-Teton National Forest in late June and that type of fire behavior is expected to continue over the next several weeks.

A high fire danger rating means fires can start easily and spread quickly. When determining fire danger, fire managers use several indicators such as the moisture content of grasses, shrubs, and trees; projected weather conditions including temperatures and possible wind events; the ability of fire to spread after ignition; and availability of firefighting resources across the country.

Public land users can help prevent wildfires by not having a fire at all and instead dressing for success with layers and warm clothes.

Fire managers advise recreationists to use caution if choosing to build and maintain a campfire. In areas where campfires are allowed, fires should never be left unattended and must be completely extinguished before leaving. So far this year, there have been 29 illegal and abandoned campfires in the Teton Interagency Fire area. Unattended or abandoned campfires and warming fires can quickly escalate into wildfires and recreationists can be held liable for suppression costs if their campfire becomes a wildfire.

All campers and day users should have a shovel on hand and a water bucket ready for use if choosing to have a fire. Soak, stir, feel, repeat. It is extremely important that all campfires are "dead out" and cold to the touch before leaving.

Visit the Teton Interagency Fire web site at TetonFires.com to learn more about fire safety and what fire regulations may be in place. To report a fire or smoke in the immediate area, call the Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch Center at 307-739-3630.

Sublette County no longer the only county in Wyoming without a hospital (posted 6/28/2022)
Kari DeWitt, Sublette County Hospital District
On June 24, 2022 the Sublette County Hospital District (SCHD) received approval for a $32.2 million USDA Rural Development Community Facilities loan to fund the construction of a new Critical Access Hospital (CAH), the first of its kind in Sublette County.

Sublette County has long had the dubious distinction of being the only Wyoming county without a hospital, but in November 2020, voters chose to rectify that situation by overwhelmingly voting in a Hospital District. Healthcare is a fundamental need for Sublette County citizens and the approval of the USDA loan application is a key step in improving healthcare access across Sublette County.

Sublette County Commissioners Joel Bousman and Tom Noble note that, "Sublette County approved the formation of a Hospital District with the understanding that the Sublette County Commission would provide up to $20 million to fund a new nursing home upon completion of a merger of the Sublette Center (the current Long Term Care center) with the Hospital District, which puts healthcare services in Sublette County under one umbrella. The goal of all of this is to improve healthcare services in our county and allow our senior citizens the option to remain in the county for care. With approval of the USDA loan, we can now move in that direction."

The current long-term care facility, the Sublette Center, is 50 years old and in desperate need of updating. The new facility will attach to the hospital with a number of improvements over the existing facility, including private rooms and a memory care unit.

This joint project is the capstone of a multi-year community effort led by community members eager to see healthcare improve in Sublette County.

"The historical significance of this announcement is not lost
on us," said Tonia Hoffman, SCHD Board Chair. "We are thrilled to be a part of pulling the project together in spite of the many obstacles we faced and are grateful for the various members of the entire team of people who contributed in any way. We look forward to creating a lasting legacy of patient care in Sublette County." SCHD Board members include Hoffman, Jamison Ziegler, Kenda Tanner, Wendy Boman and David Bell.

While Sublette County currently has two clinics (one with an attached emergency room), critical healthcare services – including blood transfusions, chemotherapy and, most of all, the ability for any patient to stay overnight – have never been available.

The new CAH facility will consist of a 10-bed inpatient unit plus a pharmacy and laboratories. The building will be staffed with full-time doctors and mid-level providers, as well as a variety of professional staff in other healthcare positions. The 70,000-square-foot facility will also offer advanced imaging capabilities, including ultrasound, X-ray, CT and mammograms.

The 50-bed long-term care facility will include a 10-bed memory care unit, one of only two in western Wyoming.

"Having a Critical Access Hospital in Sublette County will greatly increase care. In the past we have been lacking in basic services," Dave Doorn, SCHD Administrator, states. "Having a CAH will be a game changer for our community."

A key piece to the project moving forward was the Sublette Center (the current LTC facility) agreeing to merge with the Sublette County Hospital District. As the Sublette Center currently operates as a nonprofit, the merger will improve pay and benefits for the Sublette Center staff. The merger will also allow both organizations to share services such as dietary, IT, infection control and housekeeping.

"Forming one healthcare entity for Sublette County is better for the community," Sublette Center Board Chairs Patty Racich and Marilyn Jensen write. "Our board believes the success of elder care lies in strengthening relationships. We hope to work towards continued improvement of healthcare for all ages of Sublette County residents and provide exceptional care for long-term care residents."

"Assuring quality healthcare for the residents was important to the support of the project," Sublette Center Administrator Dawn Walker adds. Each room in the new long-term care facility will have a bathroom and shower. Unlike the current facility where most of the rooms are doubles, requiring patients to have a roommate, most rooms in the new facility are private. Dawn Walker notes, "This will make such a difference for our residents."

This project has been a long time in the making. Medical Director Dr. David Burnett, who has practiced medicine in Sublette County for 33 years, has a framed copy of the front-page article from the Big Piney Examiner dated October 15, 1925. The headline of the article reads, "A Hospital Is Our Most Essential Need". Dr. Burnett notes, "Thanks to years of hard work by first the Sublette County Rural Health Care District board, and then the newly formed Hospital District Board, and significant community support from all towns, mayors, county commissioners, our state representatives and our citizens, Sublette County will now have a hospital. One hundred years of progress and the hard work of many have led us to this. It is a most significant development that will have great impact on our county."

After Sublette County’s November 2020 election to form a Hospital District, the newly elected board focused on an opportunity in the USDA’s Communities Facilities Program for rural areas. Established in the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, CAH is a designation given to eligible rural hospitals by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, essential to receiving compensation for eligible patient care. With the application’s approval in June 2022, and the obligation of funding, the SCHD is ready to begin construction.

Layton Construction has been selected as the Construction Manager. Layton is a national construction firm that has completed dozens of healthcare projects. Most recently, they built the beloved Pinedale Elementary School in 2010. With USDA loan approval, Layton stands ready to start the subcontractor bidding process and groundbreaking on this historic project. Completion is expected in 2024.

ERAP Update (posted 6/26/2022)
Emergency Rental Assistance Program
Wyoming Department of Family Services
If you are eligible for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) and you are in need of additional services to help you stay safely in your home, please contact the community based organization for your county for more information about housing stability services. Costs related to obtaining or keeping safe housing will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the community based organizations.

ERAP funding also provides specialized services for eligible seniors, individuals with disabilities, domestic violence survivors and human trafficking survivors to support their ability to obtain and maintain safe housing.

Seniors and individuals with disabilities: The Wyoming Department of Health’s Aging Division provides these specialized services.
Survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking: The Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault provides these specialized services.

ERAP Funding Update
With rising gas and food costs, the demand for ERAP remains high. June has already surpassed May in expended funds.

Currently ERAP has issued $5.1 million in assistance payments, and it is quickly looking like June will beat April as the highest paid month. ERAP is a temporary federally funded relief program helping eligible Wyoming households struggling to make rent, internet and utility payments.

Please keep in mind that even though you may be eligible for assistance, we cannot promise funding will be available in the future. Do not wait to apply.

Since its launch in April 2021, ERAP has helped 9,364 Wyoming households with a total of $41 million in assistance. Of the rental payments, $32 million went to landlords, $5.9 million to households, $2.5 million to utilities and $5,700 for moving expenses.

Wyoming has issued 2,144 letters of intent to households who are homeless or without a current residence. Of those approved letters of intent, 552 households have obtained housing.

More Information:
• ONLINE: dfs.wyo.gov/erap
• PHONE: The call center is open 9 AM - 6 PM, Monday through Friday. The toll-free number is 1-877-WYO-ERAP (1-877-996-3727).
