|WyoLotto transfers $1,001,963 to State Treasurer’s OfficeKFBC Radio / 15 h. 23 min. ago more|
WyLotto 1-16-18 On Friday, Jan. 5, WyoLottoTM transferred $1,001,963 to the State Treasurer’s Office, where the funds will be distributed to Wyoming cities, towns and counties. This is the second of four quarterly transfers that will occur this fiscal year [July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018]. To date, the Wyoming Lottery has transferred a total of $6,539,300.94 to the State of Wyoming since launching in 2014. Committed to giving back to Wyoming, quarterly revenue transfers are a critical part of WyoLotto’s mission. “Thanks to our dedication to paying off our start-up loan early, we were able to start making transfers to the state in April 2016, making this our eighth transfer,” said Jon Clontz, WyoLotto CEO. Clontz added that he is very excited for 2018 and expects it to be the most successful year yet. “We have been working hard to get our brand recognized by players throughout the state, and as such have set a goal to be in as many communities as possible focusing on relationships with retailers and smaller communities. We’re thrilled about giving back to Wyoming with this most recent transfer and the positive impact it will have on our counties and municipalities. Overall, it is far-reaching and meaningful—to residents, to businesses, to winners—celebrating keeping money in Wyoming that, without the Lottery, would have been spent elsewhere,” Clontz said. Not only are Wyoming communities winning, but players and retailers are also winning. • Since launch, the Wyoming Lottery has seen 2,269,922 WyoLotto players take home $33,505,280 in winnings. • There are approximately 450 WyoLotto retailers around the state. • According to the Wyoming Lottery’s 2017 Governor’s Report, retailers have earned over $5 million in commissions from August 2014-October 2017. Small businesses around the state have been able to realize the benefit derived from a new revenue source that didn’t exist before the Lottery was formed. A young corporation, the WyoLotto continues to increase revenue and decrease expenses. Large jackpots, like the recent Jan. 6 of nearly half a billion in Mega Millions and over half a billion in Powerball, hugely impact sales forecasts on a positive note. By state statute, at least 45 percent of net proceeds from lottery sales must go to the prize pool. In 2015 and 2016, approximately 55 percent each year went to the prize pool. This number rose to 57 percent in 2017. To receive updates and notifications about Cowboy DrawⓇ , Mega MillionsⓇ , PowerballⓇ or Lucky for LifeⓇ visit info.wyolotto.com/signup.

|Wyoming Governor Matt Mead announces the 2018 Magpul Governor’s MatchKFBC Radio / 15 h. 27 min. ago more|
Gov 1-14-18 Governor Matt Mead is pleased to announce the second annual Magpul Governor’s Match, August 4-5 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation will work with match director Strategic Match Design (SMD) to create a festive atmosphere for the Governor’s Match – a nationally recognized “multi-gun” competition and spectator event. Top athletes will compete for thousands of dollars in prizes and recognition as the best. “We have a strong firearms tradition in this country,” said Governor Mead. “In Wyoming we value hunting, shooting sports and those events that promote excellence and appreciation of these skills. The event highlights our heritage through elite level competition.” The 2018 match features United Multi-Gun rules – allowing shooters to compete in traditional “3-gun”, “2-gun” or pistol caliber carbine divisions. The format allows new enthusiasts to be competitive while still challenging top tier shooters. “We listened to competitors and talked with Governor Mead to develop our plans,” said Charles Sole of Strategic Match Design. “We’re excited to be working with this team, the firearms industry and the competitive shooting community to build a fair and exciting event. Shooters want a fast paced, fun and friendly competition. We’re going to give them that and more,” added Strategic Match Design’s’ Rob Romero. “This event will be great for shooters, spectators and their families,” said Domenic Bravo, Director of the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation. “We are going to make sure this is a fun, festive event that everyone involved can enjoy.” The Governor’s Match will take place on August 4th-5th, 2018, at Otto Road Shooting Range in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

|New License Plate Proposed For WyomingKFBC Radio / 1 d. 11 h. 53 min. ago more|
AP 1.15.18 CASPER, Wyo. (AP) – A Wyoming lawmaker wants the state to issue a new license plate that would fund efforts to prevent vehicle-animal collisions. Democratic Rep. Stan Blake of Green River says the wildlife plate would cost $100 for those who want it. The Casper Star-Tribune reports the proceeds would fund overpasses, underpasses, fencing and signs along wildlife migration corridors. Bill Panos, director of the state transportation department, has said that animal-related collisions account for one in 15 fatal auto crashes in Wyoming. The Legislative Service Office estimates the bill could generate $50,000 for wildlife conservation efforts over the next three years.
|Daylight Savings Time Bill Comes Up AgainKFBC Radio / 1 d. 11 h. 59 min. ago more|
AP 1.15.18 WORLAND, Wyo. (AP) – A proposal to keep Wyoming on daylight saving time year-round is back before the state Legislature. Republican Rep. Dan Laursen of Powell has pre-filed a bill that would keep Wyoming from reverting to standard time from November through February. Laursen tells the Northern Wyoming Daily News that he doesn’t like changing the clocks. Republican Rep. Mike Greear, of Worland, opposed a similar proposal last year. Greear says if Wyoming adopted Laursen’s idea it would be isolated four months of the year unless neighboring states also made the switch. But Laursen argues neighboring states might make a change if Wyoming does. Laursen’s bill will require two-thirds vote for introduction during the upcoming budget session of the Wyoming Legislature in Cheyenne. The session begins Feb. 12.
|Oil Production Up Means More Revenue For WyomingKFBC Radio / 1 d. 12 h. 10 min. ago more|
AP 1.15.2018 CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – New revenue forecasts predict increasing oil patch activity in Wyoming will generate more tax revenue for the state’s depleted coffers. But the bump in oil tax revenue isn’t near enough to counter the current and expected continued decline in coal and natural gas revenue. The Wyoming Legislature meets next month to craft a new state budget while facing a huge revenue shortfall brought on by the downturn in the state’s mainstay fossil fuels industry. Wyoming’s public K-12 education system alone faces a more than $400 million deficit over the next two years. The new revenue forecast was presented Monday at the Legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee in Cheyenne. Committee co-chairman Republican Rep. Bob Nicholas, of Cheyenne, says the state still has a long way to go to cover its budget deficit.

|Old Z’s Building First Choice For Municipal CourthouseKFBC Radio / 1 d. 12 h. 20 min. ago more|
By Staff 1.15.18 CHEYENNE – The Carey Building site (17th St. and Carey Ave.), commonly referred to as the “former Z’s” building, received the recommendation as the preferred location for the new City of Cheyenne Municipal Court by the Municipal Court Site Selection Committee. The committee met Wednesday and voted unanimously to accept the report by Noel Griffith and Associates for full City Council consideration, and further recommended support of the conclusion that the Carey Building/Site is the most appropriate for the municipal courthouse. The Carey Building was one of four proposal evaluations presented to the Municipal Court Site Selection Committee. Other proposal sites included: The Hynds Building (1608 Capitol Ave.), Mayflower Building (112 West 17th St.), and a vacant lot located at West 18th St. between Bent Ave. and O’Neil Ave. The next steps for the Carey Building location include a presentation of the findings to City Council during a work session scheduled for Monday, January 29th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Committee Room 104 at 2101 O’Neil Ave. Buyer Affinity Ventures along with Chuck West — a representative for the current owner – each submitted a proposal for the Carey Building location. The current site has an estimated 14,520 square-footage sitting on 0.33 acres. A total of six project objectives for the new court location were utilized during the proposal review process: 1. Usable Space The facility should have 10,000 to 11,000 square-feet of useable space – preferably on one level -to maximize workflow efficiency. 2. Parking The location should provide adequate parking for 40 to 50 vehicles (including both staff and customers who will access the court Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) Parking should ideally be able to be separated into two areas, one for judges and court staff and another for public for security purposes. 3. Security The facility must meet the security requirements of a Municipal Court 4. Project Budget Cost of the facility must be fiscally reasonable ($9M has been approved by the voters). 5. Site Location Preferably the site should be located within the downtown area, but other options will be considered. 6. Benefit And Impact The proposal for the site should consider benefit of new construction or renovation to the community and impact on the Historic District. Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr applauded the work done to evaluate the proposals. Orr said “I’m pleased with the process so far, and look forward to consideration by the full council. We have the opportunity to bring life to a long-blighted corner of our downtown, while providing proper space and needs for our municipal court well into the future.” Members of the Municipal Court Site Selection Committee are Mayor Orr, Councilman Bryan Cook, Del Lummis representing the Downtown Development Authority, Cheyenne Planning and Development Director Robert Briggs, Judge Mark Moran, and City Attorney, Sylvia Hackl.
