Judge weighs wolf listing

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy will hear oral arguments today (Tuesday) in Missoula, Mont., about whether gray wolves can be legally removed from the Endangered Species list in Idaho and Montana while being kept on the list in Wyoming.

Earthjustice, on behalf of 13 wildlife conservation groups, filed the suit, questioning whether wolves, hunted in Montana and Idaho last fall, can be removed from federal protections in those states while remaining under federal protections in Wyoming.

Wolf impact rally slated May 22

A “Wyoming Wolf Impact Rally,” designed to weigh the canine's impact on agriculture and outfitting, will take place on Saturday, May 22, at City Park in Cody.

“We do support the (Wyoming) wolf management plan that was heard in Judge Johnson's court,” said rally organizer Tim Hockhalter, of Timber Creek Outfitters of Crandall.

The spring hazing of bison on the west side of Yellowstone National Park aimed at minimizing the potential spread of brucellosis from bison to cattle. But it has caused some humans to lock horns.

Conservation groups decry the federally-funded hazing, but the Montana Stockgrowers Association says hazing is necessary to thwart potential brucellosis infection in cattle.

A preliminary budget for 2010-11 was approved last week by the Park County School District No. 1 board.

Mary Jo Lewis, coordinator of business services for District No. 1, presented the budget based on preliminary figures.

The new budget is based on anticipated revenues of $22,340,906 — an increase of more than $433,000 over this year's anticipated revenue.
