Searchers continued to look for a missing hiker in the Clarks Fork Canyon area on Monday as a week of searching has turned up no clear sign of where he is.

Jason Shefelbine, 32, of Billings, has been missing since Saturday, Oct. 1, when he went on a day hike in the area.

Park County residents are in line for a more than $2.7 million break on their garbage bills.

On Thursday, the State Loan and Investment Board gave preliminary approval to Park County commissioners’ request for a $5.45 million half-loan/half-grant funding package to help close portions of the Powell, Clark and Meeteetse landfills.

Searchers in Park County are continuing to look for a 32-year-old Billings man who hasn't returned from a Saturday hike in the Clarks Fork Canyon area.

Jason Shefelbine was last seen Saturday, Oct. 1st, around 2 p.m. northwest of Antelope Mountain between the Chief Joseph Highway (Wyo. 296) and the Clarks Fork River. He was wearing shorts, a t-shirt, a black day pack and was carrying a fishing pole.

Anyone with information about Shefelbine is encouraged to contact the Park County Sheriff’s Office at 307-527-8700.

Recent limits to stay in place for coming season

Yellowstone National Park officials say the public had valid criticisms of its proposed plan for winter use in the park, and they’re taking more time to address those flaws in the plan.

“The public comment period did exactly what we hope a public comment period would do in a process like this,” Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk said in a conference call with reporters last week.

After 30 years of service to the city of Powell, Police Chief Tim Feathers is calling it a career.

Feathers formally submitted his retirement notice to the city on Thursday. It will be effective Dec. 31.

For the first time in years, the Powell High School boys tennis team broke through for a fourth-place finish and a trophy at the state tournament in Gillette.

“We had an awesome state meet, especially on the boys side,” said PHS coach Ray Bieber, adding that many of the girls improved on their play from regionals.

When most high school athletes gather for a state tournament, they’re sorted into different classes based on their cities’ population — 1A, 2A, 3A or 4A.

Not so in tennis, where everyone is lumped into one egalitarian fracas.

Shutting down parts of the Meeteetse, Clark and Powell landfills is going to be a multimillion dollar expense and Park County commissioners are hoping to get some help from the state of Wyoming.
