#Activate10: It all started with a free lemonade stand

“Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.”

(Riverton, WY) – A kick-off and brainstorming session to create a Youth Entrepreneur Program is happening Thursday, September 30th, at 5:30 pm in the Riverton City Hall Council Chambers.

A program to spur the creativity and entrepreneurship of our local youth was a wish of the late Brett Watson. His vision stemmed from one kiddo’s free lemonade stand this past June and wanted to see stands all across Riverton.

The Riverton Ambassadors, a local group with a mission to move the city forward, is working to see Brett’s wish to fruition and they need the community’s help.

A few current thoughts about the program include kiddos learning how to put a marketing plan together, figuring out their product, and the cost they plan to sell their product at – maybe older kids could mentor or local organizations help with this process.

A parent or community sponsor – the “bank” – would help them get off the ground and once the summer is over they would pay them back and could pocket their profit.

Again these are just some of the current thoughts about the program. The Riverton Ambassadors need community help to get things off the ground.

County 10 will share the latest updates from the NWSR as they are released.

Rare human case of pneumonic plague reported in Fremont County

0

(Fremont County, WY) – The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) announced today, September 15th, the detection of a rare but serious case of pneumonic plague in a northern Fremont County resident.

Plague is a bacterial infection that can be deadly to humans and other mammals, including pets, if not treated promptly with antibiotics. This disease can be transmitted to humans from sick animals or by fleas coming from infected animals; in this case, the person had contact with sick pet cats.

Plague can also be transmitted from person to person through close contact with someone who has pneumonic plague. Individuals with a known exposure to plague require post-exposure treatment with antibiotics to help prevent illness. WDH is notifying individuals who may need this kind of treatment.

Plague symptoms depend on how the patient is exposed. The most common form is bubonic plague, where patients develop the sudden onset of fever, headache, chills, and weakness and one or more swollen, painful lymph nodes called buboes. This form usually results from the bite of an infected flea.

Individuals with septicemic plague develop fever, chills, extreme weakness, abdominal pain, shock, and possible bleeding into the skin and other organs. Septicemic plague can occur as the first symptom of plague or may develop from untreated bubonic plague and can be caused by the bite of an infected flea or the handling of an infected animal.

Individuals with pneumonic plague develop fever, headache, weakness, and a rapidly developing pneumonia with shortness of breath, chest pain, and sometimes watery or bloody mucous.

Pneumonic plague is the most serious form and is the only form that can be spread from person to person. Pneumonic plague can develop from inhaling infectious droplets or may develop from untreated bubonic or septicemic plague.

Dr. Alexia Harrist, state health officer and state epidemiologist with WDH, said while the risk for humans to contract plague is very low in Wyoming, the disease has been documented throughout the state in domestic and wild animals.

“It’s safe to assume that the risk for plague exists all around our state,” Harrist said. “While the disease is rare in humans, it is important for people to take precautions to reduce exposure and to seek prompt medical care if symptoms consistent with plague develop.”

To reduce the risk of plague, WDH recommends:

  • Reducing rodent habitats around the home, workplace, and recreational areas by removing brush, rock piles, junk, cluttered firewood, and possible rodent food supplies.
  • Wear gloves if handling or skinning potentially infected animals to prevent contact between your skin and the plague bacteria.
  • Use repellent if exposure to fleas is possible during activities such as camping, hiking, or working outdoors. Products containing DEET can be applied to the skin as well as clothing.
  • Keep fleas off indoor and outdoor pets by applying flea control products. Animals that roam freely outdoors are more likely to come into contact with plague-infected animals or fleas.
  • If pets become sick, seek care from a veterinarian as soon as possible.
  • Do not allow dogs or cats that roam free to share beds with people.

This human plague case is the seventh thought to be acquired in Wyoming since 1978. Other recorded Wyoming cases include a 1978 out-of-state case acquired in Washakie County, a 1982 Laramie County case, a 1992 Sheridan County case that resulted in death, a 2000 Washakie County case, a 2004 out-of-state case acquired in Goshen County, and a 2008 out-of-state case acquired in Teton County.

Missing 22-year-old believed to have last been in Grand Teton National Park

0

(Moose, WY) — 22-year-old Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito is missing and believed to have last been in Grand Teton National Park on August 25th.

Due to the parties in this case residing in North Port, Florida, the North Port Police Department (NPPD) will be the primary investigating agency, in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, according to a press release from NPPD.

Gabby’s vehicle was recovered in North Port at her home on September 11th. A home shared with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie and his parents. That vehicle was fully processed for evidence along with FBI agents Tuesday evening.

As of today, September 15th, Brian has not made himself available to be interviewed by investigators or has provided any helpful details. They know Brian returned to North Port on September 1st — ten days before her family reported her missing on September 11th. NPPD has no information that a crime occurred in North Port. Brian Laundrie is a person of interest in this case.

The FBI has set up a national hotline to receive tips. 1-800-CALLFBI (225-5324). That is now our primary tip line. So far, they have received hundreds of tips that are being vetted through multiple agencies. If anyone has seen the van photographed and information that might be helpful, please let us know.

According to her family, they were last in contact with Gabby during the last week of August. Prior to the last communication, she is believed to have been in Grand Teton National Park.

Gabby and Brian were traveling in a white 2012 Ford Transit van with Florida license plate QFTG03. Gabrielle, 22, is white, approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall and 110 pounds. She has blonde hair and blue eyes, and several tattoos, including one on her finger and one on her forearm that reads “let it be.”

h/t NPPD

Grand Teton law enforcement rangers are working with the Investigative Services Branch of the National Park Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Teton County Sherriff’s Office, Jackson Police Department and other law enforcement agencies to investigate her disappearance. 

Anyone with possible information on Gabby Petito’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the FBI tip line at 1-800-CALLFBI (225-5324).

Women will participate in the One Shot Antelope Hunt for the first time

(Lander, WY) – State Auditor Kristi Racines and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow along with local Wyoming State Representative Ember Oakley and Megan Degenfelder of Morningstar Partners will compete in the 2021 Wyoming One Shot Antelope Hunt September 15-18.

While notable past shooters include the likes of General Norman Schwarzkopf, Roy Rogers, Senator Al Simpson, and Vice President Dick Cheney, this is the first year that women will participate as hunters. 

“The One Shot Antelope Hunt has been a cherished Wyoming tradition for generations,” Governor Mark Gordon said. “It is a special year for the One Shot. I’m looking forward to spending time in the great outdoors with friends who appreciate our hunting legacy.”

The purpose of the event is to promote the ideals of good sportsmanship and game conservation, which has not changed since its inception 77 years ago. Emphasis is placed on camaraderie, ability in the field, and accuracy with a big-game rifle. In 1975, the Hunt partnered with the Water For Wildlife® Foundation, a conservation organization designed to benefit wildlife with a focus on providing water sources to drought-stricken habitats. 

“I’m honored and humbled to be a part of this historic hunt, particularly since it’s in my home county,” Racines said. “In Wyoming, hunting is a critical part of our culture, and for good reason. It engenders respect for our lands, our wildlife, and most importantly, for each other. This hunt honors our past, while carrying these important values into the future.”  

With the inclusion of seven women in this year’s hunt, several of the traditions have been altered or omitted from the event. Ceremonies this year include a Native American Ceremony, coordinated with members of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe. Hunters will hear the “Legend of the Hunt” and participate in a brothers and sisters ceremony, in which participants’ bullets are blessed for the hunt. 

“The purpose of the hunt remains unchanged: to promote the ideals of sportsmanship and game conservation,” said Darin Hubbel, President of the One Shot Hunt Board of Directors. “It has always been our goal to bring new hunters and supporters to the community while maintaining strong traditional ties to our roots. By opening our event to a more diverse group, we ensure both the event and the sport of hunting remain viable for future generations. We also want to thank the Wyoming Game and Fish and the Shoshone Tribe for their continued support.”

Hunters shoot individually and compete on teams of three. Racines is on a team with Governor Gordon. Balow is on this year’s only all-Wyoming, all-women’s team with Oakley and Degenfelder. There is one other sponsored all-women’s team competing. 

“It is novel to think about ‘breaking through the glass ceiling’ by being the first women to compete in the One Shot,” Balow said. “But, I assure you that is not why we are participating. Like others before us, we appreciate the comradery of the hunt and the stories that follow, we grow from the self-reliance of self-confidence that comes from an ethical harvest, and we are committed to conservation of wildlife and outdoor resources.”

Funeral services for lifelong Lander resident Edwin T. “Butch” Hudson, age 80, will be held on Monday at 11 am at the Lander Community and Convention Center with interment to follow at Mount Hope Cemetery. There will be open visitation starting at 10 am until service time. Butch passed away the morning of Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Sage West Lander hospital.

Edwin T. Hudson was born February 3, 1941 to Henry and Wilma (Gustin) Hudson in Lander, Wyoming. He grew up in Lander schools. He played football in high school and was very active in the music and acting programs. He graduated from Fremont County Vocational High School in 1959. He attended Casper College on a music scholarship and worked odd jobs to pay the bills. He worked as an orderly and as a security guard in the emergency room at Natrona County Hospital. He also served as ambulance driver. 

After Casper College he worked odd jobs in Lander including Bishop Randall Hospital and Darr Funeral Home. He attended Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in 1962-63 graduating with his embalmers degree.  This is where he met Diane Ekardt on a blind date. She was a student at the Jewish school of nursing. They continued to write letters after Butch had graduated and moved back to Lander. For her graduation he sent her a train ticket west. She obliged and the couple were married on August 30, 1964. 

Butch worked for Davis Funeral Home until they opened Hudson’s Funeral Home on South 3rd Street in Lander in the former Catholic Church in 1966. The business grew and in 1969 built the permanent home on Mount Hope Drive by the cemetery. The new facility offered modern funeral service options but Butch and staff also operated a home oxygen service as well as an ambulance service. Butch was passionate about Emergency Services. This along with his love of teaching and human anatomy led him to become the first certified Emergency Medical Technician instructor in the State of Wyoming. From 1970 to 1980 Butch and Diane, along with their children Annie, Kathy and Nick were weekend warriors traveling around the state teaching volunteers the basics of Emergency care. Butch was instrumental in creating the Wyoming Ambulance & EMS Association which helped to bring more folks together with annual trauma conferences and competitions that allowed first responders from all around the state to gather, show the skills and talk about the successes and failures of, at the time, a very infant practice in Wyoming. These teachings and events helped shape emergency services and have a lasting impact on the citizens of Wyoming.

Butch served as city councilman and served two terms on the Fremont County Commission. During his two terms he was instrumental in creating the Fremont County Association of Governments or FCAG. This brought all the cities, towns and public entities of Fremont County together to help solve county-wide problems and allowed communities to work together for the betterment of their citizens.

Butch was very active in the community of Lander during these years. He volunteered his time with many great organizations including serving on the Lander Volunteer Fire Department, Lander Pioneer Days Parade Committee, Lander One Shot Antelope Hunt, was very active with the Lander Rotary Club, was instrumental in starting the Lander Valley High School Booster Club and has been a decades long 32nd degree Mason in the Lander Lodge No. 2.

Butch was passionate about his hobbies. He was an excellent cook, an accomplished woodworker, writer, and painter and was an avid fly fisherman. He and Diane were passionate about their family and doing everything possible to show support and love for their children and grandchildren. They loved family dinners, holiday gatherings and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with family at their cabin on Pass Creek. They enjoyed travelling in their motorhome in retirement and just being together.

He is survived by his children Annie and Bill Heninger, Kathy and Ron Wells, Nick and Toni Hudson all of Lander, grandchildren Josh, Emile, Kegan (Kendra), Kolbey, Jenae and Jaclyn of Lander, Casper and Laramie; siblings Gwen and Dory Montezemi of Hebron, Kentucky, Dick and Celina Hudson of Lander, Cheryl and Foy “John” Jolly of Cheyenne and Dave and Nancy Hudson of Lander, along with numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

He is preceded in death by his wife of 57 years Diane, his parents Henry and Wilma Hudson, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
