Open House at the Deadline Ridge Lookout August 24 (posted 8/22/19)
The Sublette County Historic Preservation Board and Bridger-Teton National Forest invite the public to come to an Open House for the Deadline Ridge Fire Lookout on Saturday, August 24th from 11AM to 2PM.

The Lookout is remotely located on Deadline Ridge in the Wyoming Range, but it is well worth the trip, both for the view and to see this restored iconic structure that represents such an important part of the history of forest management.

Built in 1941 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, this fire lookout was used into the late 1960s. It was later decommissioned once airplanes and better communication technology allowed for faster ways to detect and report wildfires. As happens with so many of these structures that are no longer in active use, the lookout fell into disrepair and was deteriorating.

Very few of the original fire lookouts remain on the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Members of the Sublette County Historic Preservation Board took on the project of bringing this lookout and its important history back to life. Board members conducted a "Clean It, Fix It, Paint It" project which lasted three years. Board members repaired, rebuilt and replaced several windows, repaired and replaced roof shingles, and repaired the chimney on the roof. More dramatically, with cooperation from archaeologists from the Forest Service to find the original paint colors, the volunteers repainted the lookout back to its original colors. This included repainting the large white "8" on the roof which identified it from the air. Board members also worked with the Green River Valley Museum to put in an interpretive display about the lookout at the Museum.

The Deadline Ridge Fire Lookout is located high in the Wyoming Range. It sits at about 10,000 feet elevation and has an incredible view of the Wyoming Range and Snyder Basin area. It is about 45 minute drive southwest of Big Piney taking somewhat of a maze of backcountry forest roads to get there. The snow just recently came off from the area, and conditions are somewhat muddy in places. High clearance vehicles are recommended. Parking is very limited, so for the Open House, carpooling is strongly encouraged.

During the Open House visitors will have a chance to take in the sweeping scenic view, look at the restoration work, and sign the Lookout guest register. Forest Service representatives will be on hand with educational materials. 2019 is the 75th Anniversary of Smokey Bear for the Forest Service, so there will be additional information about 50 years of forest management and public education about fire suppression and fire’s role in the ecology of a healthy forest.

Refreshments (cookies and lemonade) will be served. Please feel free to bring your own bigger lunch if you wish. Bring a folding chair or picnic blanket if you want to be more comfortable. Accommodations are very rustic and there are no services or conveniences at the Lookout. Also, the wind can be very strong at times, so make sure whatever you bring can withstand the weather and won’t blow away. Very young children should be carefully supervised at this site. Sunscreen and mosquito spray also are recommended.

Directions are a bit complicated, so watch for the arrow direction signs along the way. From Big Piney, go south three miles and take the Calpet Road turn off and then follow the signs. For more info call 307-360-7689 or email dawn@pinedaleonline.com.

Southern areas of Forest go to Very High Fire Danger (posted 8/22/19)
Greys, Kemmerer and Big Piney Ranger Districts increased to Very High

Teton Interagency fire managers and staff are busy responding to fire incidents locally, regionally and nationally. The Teton Interagency area, including Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest and National Elk Refuge, has had warm temperatures, low humidity and some winds the past few days. These conditions can rapidly dry vegetation and create ideal conditions for wildland fire combustion and rapid spread. Similar weather conditions are predicted throughout the next week.

The Greys River, Big Piney, and Kemmerer ranger districts, including the Wyoming and Salt River Ranges, of the Bridger-Teton National Forest have moved to "very high" fire danger. The remainder of the Teton Interagency area remains "high" fire danger.

Fire danger ratings are determined by considering a number of factors. To decide a fire danger rating, fire managers consider the moisture content of grasses, shrubs, and trees. They also look at predicted weather conditions including temperatures and possibility of rain, lightening, or wind. Fire managers consider the ability of fire to spread after ignition, and availability of firefighting resources across the country. The Wyoming Range is drier than surrounding areas and areas to the north because it did not get recent precipitation.

Everyone, including visitors to public lands, should always use extra caution with fire. It is critical to put out all campfires and warming fires. As of today, 105 campfires have been abandoned in the Teton Interagency Dispatch area. Anyone choosing to have a fire should be in attendance of their fire at all times. Before leaving, drown any fire with plenty of water, stir all ashes and coals until they are soaked, and cold to the touch. Explosives, including fireworks and exploding targets, are illegal on national park and national forest lands. Do not park or drive on dry grass, ensure chain saws have working spark arrestors, and when smoking outside ensure cigarettes are crushed and do not flick ashes on dry vegetation.

There are currently no fire restrictions in place. Conditions and contributing factors are being evaluated daily by fire managers with coordinated conversations among counties and land management agencies on this topic. Last year, during late August and September, there was an increase in fire incidents due to dry conditions and human actions.

Please visit the Teton Interagency Fire website www.tetonfires.com to learn more about current fires, fire safety, and any fire regulations that may be in place. To report a fire or smoke, call the Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch Center at 307-739-3630.


LaBarge Creek Road will temporarily close for culvert replacement (posted 8/13/19)
One day closure in mid-August

The Bridger-Teton National Forest will temporarily close LaBarge Creek road to complete a culvert replacement in mid-August.

As part of a multi-year project to improve road infrastructure and stream passage for native Colorado River Cutthroat Trout in the LaBarge Creek drainage, culvert replacement construction will occur on Little Clear Creek on the Kemmerer Ranger District. This work will connect two miles of currently inaccessible spawning and rearing habitat, as well as reduce the risk of future road failures.

A temporary road closure in the LaBarge drainage will occur during the week of August 19. During that week, LaBarge Creek Road (FS 10138) will be closed for one day, but will not remain closed overnight.

Travelers in the LaBarge headwaters should consider alternative routes, including access over Sheep Pass via the Smiths Fork Road (FS 10072) or access from the Tri-Basin area along Greys River Road (FS 10138). It is important to be aware that construction traffic throughout the week could slow travel in these areas.

The Kemmerer Ranger District would like to offer thanks in advance for cooperation during this important work. Please contact Fish Biologist, Kate Olsen, with further questions at kate.h.olsen@usda.gov or 307-367-5751.


Mike Petty appointed new Fire Battalion Chief for Big Piney/Marbleton (posted 7/30/19)

MARBLETON, WYOMING - On Wednesday, July 25, 2019 during their regular training meeting, Sublette County Unified Fire formally appointed Mike Petty as the new Battalion Chief for Battalion 2 – Big Piney/Marbleton. Battalion Chief Petty will provide primary supervision for the Big Piney/Marbleton response area and ensure the facilities, apparatus, equipment, and firefighters are prepared to respond to emergency incidents in Sublette County.

Fire Chief Shad Cooper explained, "Mike has over 15 years of experience as a volunteer firefighter with our organization. He is fully qualified as a Fire Officer II and is currently working to complete his AS in Fire Science from Columbia Southern University". Cooper further explained, "Battalion Chief Petty has already displayed exceptional leadership as a company officer for many years. His significant experience, education, and qualifications will greatly enhance the capabilities of our organization". Mike Petty will also continue to serve as the Public Information Officer for Sublette County Unified Fire in addition to his new responsibilities as a Battalion Chief.


Two wildlife underpasses to go in north of LaBarge (posted 7/30/19)
The Wyoming Game & Fish has approved $1.25 million to help pay for two wildlife underpasses along US 189 north of LaBarge, Wyoming. The underpasses and associated fencing will go in along a five mile stretch of highway that has a record of vehicle collisions with mule deer. The road intersects an area where mule deer cross in the fall and spring traveling to and from their winter range habitats. The agency expects the underpasses will reduce collisions by up to 90 percent. The projects are expected to be completed by 2022.


GRVM Free Movie Night Aug 1 – ‘Shane’ (posted 7/29/19)
The Green River Valley Museum in Big Piney will have a free movie night on Thursday, August 1st. The movie to be shown is "Shane". The movie will be in the museum’s back building starting at 7:00PM. Free snacks and refreshments provided. Bring a few friends!


Fire Danger Increases to High (posted 7/23/19)
No restrictions in place at this time

Western, Wyoming, July 23, 2019 – Fire danger has increased to "High" for Bridger-Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park, National Elk Refuge, and the rest of the Teton Interagency Dispatch Area.

Recent hot temperatures and regular afternoon winds have created dry forest conditions. With little to no forecasted rain in the coming weeks, fire activity is expected to increase. Three wildfires have been detected in the last week, with the Box Creek Fire remaining active in the Teton Wilderness.

A high fire danger rating means that 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 locally and across the nation.

There are no fire restrictions currently in place, but it is important to be aware of the increased risk and take extra care when building campfires, parking on dry grass, or recreating outdoors.

Visitors and local residents are reminded that unattended or abandoned campfires can easily escalate into wildfires. This year there have already been more than 83 abandoned campfires reported in the Teton Interagency Dispatch area. Campers should be prepared with plenty of water and a shovel on hand.

As a reminder, simply pouring water on a fire is not sufficient. Most of the reported unattended fires found by fire personnel involve smoldering logs and white ash which can easily spread embers when stirred by a breeze or gust of wind. Campers need to drown campfires with plenty of water and then stir the coals, repeating as necessary. Before leaving the area, the campfire should be cold to the touch. Campers need to be aware they could be held liable for suppression costs if their campfire becomes a wildfire.

Please visit the Teton Interagency Fire website at tetonfires.com to learn more about current fires, fire safety, and any fire regulations that may be in place. To report a fire or smoke, call the Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch Center at 307-739-3630.

Middle Piney Dam and Road Closure (posted 7/11/18)
Middle Piney Lake access will be closed for three summers for dam reconstruction
PUBLIC NOTICE: Forest Road #10024 heading to Middle Piney Reservoir is now closed above Sacagawea Campground for the next three summers while the dam is being reconstructed. There will be heavy equipment up and down that road. Due to a safety concern for both the public as well as the construction crew, the road will be closed to all traffic during the summer season (including on foot).

The back side of the lake will still be open to the public, but know that it is going to be a long hike OFF-ROAD AND OFF-TRAIL, and there will be NO MOTORIZED access.

According to the Wyoming Water Development Office, the dam is in need of reconstruction due to its high risk of failure. The State is also funding the reconstruction project.

Construction is going to take the shoreline down to its natural level and completely reconstruct the man-made dam. Because of the short field season in the area, the process is going to take at least three years to complete.

During the winter season, while construction activity is on hold, NW Construction will remove their equipment and supplies as much as possible to allow winter access.

Please call the Big Piney Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest for more information, 307-276-5800.

Info on vehicle registration laws in Wyoming for non-resident workers (posted 5/29/18)

In a joint release issued on Tuesday (May 29, 2018), Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell and County Treasurer Robb Slaughter described the details of Wyoming statute concerning vehicle registration for non-residents working in the state.

"The Wyoming statute that addresses this issue," Slaughter said, "is W.S. 31-2-201 (j) and (k). It can be reviewed online at the State Legislature’s website at http://www.wyoleg.gov/StateStatutes/StatutesConstitution?tab=0 ."

Lowell and Slaughter outlined the statute as follows:

A non-resident who is employed in Wyoming, on either a temporary or full-time basis, and who is the owner or operator of a vehicle in Wyoming that is not a commercial vehicle must immediately obtain a valid Wyoming registration or purchase a temporary registration.

To obtain a temporary registration, their vehicle must display a valid registration from another jurisdiction and be properly insured. Application is made in person at the County Treasurer’s Office at the Sweetwater County Courthouse at 80 West Flaming Gorge Way in Green River. The fee for a temporary registration is $50.00 per month and cannot exceed 120 days per vehicle. If a worker is going to be employed in Wyoming for longer than 120 days, a regular Wyoming registration must be issued.

Those applying for a temporary registration will need to bring with them the following:

- The vehicle’s current, non-expired registration
- Proof of insurance
- Color of vehicle
- Payment for temporary registration in the form of cash, credit card, or debit card

Subsection (k) of the statute makes the following provisions for a commercial vehicle owner, a non-resident owner of a vehicle who is not employed in Wyoming, or any owner, upon transfer of ownership to, as an alternative to registration:

A 30-, 60-, or 90-day permit may be obtained in any 12 month period. The temporary permit begins on the date the owner enters Wyoming or on the date of purchase of the vehicle. The fees for a temporary permit are:

Up to 30 days - .10 X regular registration fee
Up to 60 days - .20 X regular registration fee
Up to 90 days - .30 X regular registration fee

Lowell and Slaughter noted that Wyoming has full reciprocity agreements with Idaho, New Mexico, Illinois, and Nebraska. Non-residents working in Wyoming who live in these states may run with their regular registration. If they take up residence in Wyoming, however, (by living here over 120 days, for instance), they must obtain Wyoming registration.

In addition, Wyoming has daily commuter reciprocity with Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Utah. Non-residents who live in these states and commute to work daily in Wyoming may run with their regular registration.

Lowell emphasized that Sweetwater County deputies are enforcing this statute, and will continue to do so.

Slaughter said those with questions may contact their County Clerk’s office.

Big Piney, Wyoming, "Ice Box of the Nation"

Big Piney & Marbleton
Ice Box of the Nation
Big Piney is the oldest settlement in Sublette County, Wyoming and was named by Dan B. Budd for the Piney Creeks. In 1879, Daniel B. Budd and his partner Hugh McKay brought a thousand head of cattle from Nevada hoping to ship them at Point of Rocks, but winter caught up to them here in the Green River Valley. The following year Dan Budd moved his family here and that is how the settlement of this town began. Big Piney was called "Ice Box of the Nation" when it was officially made a weather station in 1930. Big Piney had the coldest year round average temperature of any place nationally.

It's a curiosity, considering most Wyoming towns are few and far between, that Big Piney and Marbleton would only be a mile apart. They have separate post offices and town governments. Big Piney was incorporated on July 5, 1913. In the early days there was a lot of drainage problems with the site on which Big Piney was built. So Charles Budd, eldest son to Dan B Budd had hope to build the town up on the bench to alleviate this problem. Charles did establish Marbleton on the bench, in late 1913, but it never replaced Big Piney. Any attempts to combine the two towns has been unsuccessful. The truth is people here kinda' like it that way. Both towns cooperate with each other, they have a common school. The citizens of these two towns take a lot of pride in the growth of their little metropolis over the past years and think the founders would be proud too. Both communities have thrived in the last several decades because of the oil and gas industry. In the 1980's Marbleton recieved it's own post office, because of the number of people moving to the area.
