  • Golfers take to the streets of Hulett

    Apr 6, 2023

    Eighteen teams of four hit the streets of Hulett for Urban Golf. What is Urban Golf? Hitting tennis balls with golf clubs on the streets.

    Sarah Pridgeon|Apr 6, 2023

  • Crook County among fastest-growing in Wyoming

    Sarah Pridgeon|Apr 6, 2023

    Crook County’s recent population growth is considerably higher than the state and national averages, according to new data released by the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information’s Economic Analysis Division.

  • Teton Village resident recovering from being trampled by moose

    Billy Arnold, Jackson Hole News&Guide Via Wyoming News Exchange|Apr 6, 2023

    JACKSON - Hannah Garland finds it oddly comforting that she knows which moose trampled her Friday morning. "Had it been a rogue moose, I would've been constantly living on edge, like 'Are you the one? Are you the one?'" said Garland, 27, who lives in Teton Village, where moose are constant features on the landscape. But knowing that it was Yellow 72, a collared, suburban moose known for her mangy look, hair loss and springtime tick infestation, allows Garland a bit more certainty in where she...
