  • Casper man arrested after allegedly breaking into residence, while occupants were homeCasper man arrested after allegedly breaking into residence, while occupants were home

    A Casper man has been arrested, after it was alleged he entered a residence, without permission, while the occupant was home. It is further alleged that the suspect tried to gain entry into the home later, again with the occupants home, by trying to pry a door. 46-year-old Richard Alan Conner faces a felony charge of Burglary, as well as a charge of felony Property Destruction. Conner made his initial appearance in Natrona County Circuit Court, wearing a jail jumpsuit and shackles. Conner was active in court, mouthing phrases and using sign language to communicate with members of the public viewing the proceedings. Despite admonishment from bailiffs, members of the audience would occasionally sign back. According to court documents, officers responded to an address on Indian Paintbrush, in Casper, on November 15ht, 2017. Witnesses reported that an occupant of the home was alone in the lower level of the him, and had come upstairs to investigate a noise. The witness claims that the resident found a man in his home, identified as being a laborer who was working in the neighborhood, inside the home. The witness asked what the suspect was doing in the home and the suspect responded that he was “just cutting through.” The witness reported that he ordered the suspect to leave, at which point he did. At which point the witness locked the doors of the house. A little while later, the witness told police he heard a “banging” from upstairs. The witness again came up to investigate and said that the suspect was trying to pry open a back door with a tool. The witness then shouted for the man to leave. It was estimated that approximately $7,000 of damage was done to the back door. According to reports, the suspect may have left the area in a white SUV. Police made contact with 39-year-old Kevin Johansen, a laborer with a nearby roofing job. It was reported that other employees of the roofing company identified the car that had left the area as belonging to Johansen, and that it had been taken by another employee identified as Richard Conner. Johansen was arrested on charges of Failure to Comply and Failure to Appear, on an incident unrelated to the November 15th burglary. Employees of the roofing company were questioned and were unable to account for Conner’s whereabouts during the time of the burglary. Work gloves that were found at the scene of the burglary, were shown to employees of the roofing company, who identified the gloves as belonging to Conner. Police report finding a white SUV belonging to Johansen outside of an Evansville home. After several attempts, police report making contact with Conner at about 8:30 am, on November 16th. Conner informed officers that he had heard they were seeking him and that he was coincidentally about to go to the Police Department to “clear his name.” Conner denied breaking into any residences and claimed to be innocent of any wrongdoing. Conner was arrested and transported to the Natrona County Detention Center. Police note in reports, that the victims claim that over $800 in tools had been taken. It was further noted that additional houses had been broken into on Indian Paintbrush, including a vacant home, and another home that was reported to have nothing taken, but did report a damaged shower head. During his initial appearance, Assistant District Attorney Trevor Schenk pointed out that Conner has a long history of prior felony thefts, including a recent 15-year prison sentance. Schenk recommended a $10,000 cash or surety bond. Despite the recommendation, Circuit Court Judge Stephen Brown handed Conner down a bond amount of $20,000 cash or surety. All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.

  • Man arrested after allegedly fleeing a vehicle crash, with reported injuriesMan arrested after allegedly fleeing a vehicle crash, with reported injuries

    A Casper man was arrested, after allegedly fleeing the scene of a three-car collision, and hiding in an apartment from police officers. Others involved in the accident were reported to have been taken to an area hospital for injuries to their heads, necks, and backs. According to an arrest affidavit, the Casper Police Department responded to the scene of a three-car collision near the intersection of East 2nd Street and Iowa Avenue, just after 3:15 pm, November 16th, 2017. Police say that witnesses on the scene reported that the man who caused the accident fled the crash before officers arrived. It was reported that the man fled the scene on foot, after approaching and looking at the two other cars involved. During investigation, police matched the ownership of the car with a female resident of an apartment on East Yellowstone Highway, and that the owner of the car was known to live with 39-year-old Christopher Lee Borino. Police made contact with the registered owner of the vehicle at the East Yellowstone street address. Officers informed the woman that her vehicle had been involved in an accident and that Borino was believed to be responsible. Further, officers advised that Borino had an active warrant for his arrest. The woman initially denied that Borino was in the home, saying that he had been gone for several weeks. She also said that she had left her vehicle at an area parking lot, the day before. Police voiced that they did not believe that Borino was not in the residence, citing that neighbors had identified him as being around the property recently. After the woman consented to a search of the home, officers report that Borino came out of a back bedroom with his hands up, stating “I’m here.” Police say that during an interview with Borino, he admitted to causing the accident at 2nd and Iowa, and had left the scene because he knew he had an active warrant. Broino was arrested and booked into jail on recommended charges of Hit and Run With Injuries, Failure to Grant Right of Way when Entering a Roadway, and No Insurance. In addition, Borino faces a charge of Failure to Comply and potential probation revocation. All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office. The medical conditions of the other individuals involved in the crash wer not released by court or law enforcement authorities.

  • Colorado man arrested in Natrona County, alleged to have had over 1 lb. of marijuanaColorado man arrested in Natrona County, alleged to have had over 1 lb. of marijuana

    A Fort Collins, Colorado man is facing charges of felony Possession of a Controlled Substance- Marijuana in Natrona County, after Troopers say they found over a pound of marijuana in his vehicle. According to court paperwork 33-year-old Ira Whitney was taken into custody, during the late night hours of November 16th. Highway Patrol Troopers say that Whitney was observed driving a black Pontiac G6, on I-25, near milepost 184. Reports say that the Pontiac was observed going 90 mph, in a posted 80 mph zone. Troopers say that they further observed the Pontiac fail to maintain it’s lane of travel while driving. A stop was initiated and an arrest affidavit says that when the Pontiac pulled over it struck the curb, and the driver stopped the car with the vehicle’s front passenger tire parked on the curb. Troopers contacted Whitney and note that they could smell an odor of marijuana and alcohol about the suspect’s person. Troopers also report seeing a black canister labeled “THC,” and a multi-colored glass pipe with suspected marijuana in the bowl. The affidavit says that both the canister and the pipe were in plain view on the passenger seat. When questioned, Troopers say that Whitney admitted to having a gram of marijuana in the vehicle, and saying that his last drink had been a rum and cola, at a bar in Fort Collins, two hours before the stop. Whitney further advised that he worked at the bar. Whitney was taken into custody, and a subsequent search of the vehicle yielded an open Bud Light bottle that was described as “cool to the touch,” found in between the passenger seat and center console. Further, Troopers report finding a six pack of Bud Light in the car, with two of the bottles removed. In the trunk of the vehicle Troopers discovered approximately 1.2 pounds of suspected marijuana, divided up between four separately packaged vacuum sealed bags. After a field sobriety test, Whitney was placed under arrest just after midnight. During his initial appearance in Natrona County Circuit Court, Whitney was charged with Felony Possession of Marijuana and Driving While Under the Influence. Whitney’s bond was set at $10,000 cash or surety. All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.

  • Poison Spider Students and Parents Gather for Thanksgiving Feast (Photos and Story)Poison Spider Students and Parents Gather for Thanksgiving Feast (Photos and Story)

    Poison Spider School kindergarten teacher Sharon Chapman decided to throw a Thanksgiving party. That was 25-years ago. Chapman has since retired and moved to Jackson, but her party lives on. Poison Spider serves a rural area west of Casper, where most people live miles from each other. School functions such as the annual Thanksgiving feast brings them together. “We’re kind of a family out here at Poison Spider,” said principal Tammy Creger. “We’ve had parents and grandparents in here all morning working and cooking.” Students in grades K-4 get to enjoy the feast with their families. As the school enrollment grew, the feast was saved for the younger students. As a trade-off, older kids get to look forward to their own end-of-school banquet with family. “Our parents are so awesome,” said special education teacher Carol Michenzie. Michenzie leads the team that brings the feast together. “I kind of inherited it,” said the 15-year veteran of the school. Volunteers and staff prepared eight turkeys and sides, while parents brought in pies and other desserts and toppings. After a short singing program from 3rd and 4th graders, parents, grandparents and children gathered in lines to load up on food. Many went home afterwords, too full to possibly do any more school work. The 8th-graders won’t be completely banned from the feast. They’ll come in later to help clean and stack tables. “They do it for the leftovers,” said Michenzie. Students perform a short singing program before the annual Thanksgiving feast on Friday morning at Poison Spider School.

  • Keystone pipeline leak won’t affect Nebraska rulingKeystone pipeline leak won’t affect Nebraska ruling

    LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Discovery of a 210,000-gallon oil spill from the Keystone pipeline that critics say demonstrates the risks of energy transport to the environment, will not affect Nebraska regulators’ decision next week on an expansion of the system because they are not allowed to consider pipeline safety, a state official said Friday. Keystone operator TransCanada Corp. shut down the pipeline early Thursday morning and workers were testing to determine the cause of the spill on agricultural land in Marshall County, South Dakota, near the North Dakota border about 250 miles (402 kilometers) west of Minneapolis. The spill announcement came just four days before the Nebraska Public Service Commission votes Monday whether to allow the Keystone XL expansion pipeline to cross the state. A state law passed in 2011 prevents the commission from factoring pipeline safety or the possibility of leaks into its decisions. The vote Monday will be on a proposed route for the Keystone XL, which also would be operated by TransCanada. The new pipeline would carry an estimated 830,000 barrels of oil a day from the oil sands areas of Canada through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, where it would connect with the existing Keystone pipeline. The decision will be based solely on testimony and documents during public hearings over the summer and from more than 500,000 public comments, Nebraska Public Service Commission spokeswoman Deb Collins said. “The commission’s decision … will be based on the evidence in the record,” Collins said. The Keystone XL proposal has drawn intense resistance in Nebraska from a coalition of environmental groups, Native American tribes and some landowners who don’t want the pipeline running through their property. Nebraska lawmakers gave the five-member commission the power to regulate major oil pipelines in 2011 in response to a public outcry over the pipeline and its potential impact on the Sandhills, an ecologically fragile region of grass-covered sand dunes. But when they passed the law, legislators argued that the state couldn’t factor the risk of leaks into its decision because pipeline safety is a federal responsibility that pre-empts state law. Opponents of Keystone XL are incensed that the leak won’t be considered as a factor. “There is a reason TransCanada and the big oil lobby did not want this information on the record,” said Jane Kleeb, director of the Bold Alliance, a coalition of groups that have opposed the Keystone XL for nearly a decade. President Donald Trump issued a federal permit for the expansion project in March even though it had been rejected by the Obama administration. The existing Keystone pipeline transports crude from Canada to refineries in Illinois and a major storage hub in Oklahoma, passing through the eastern Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. It can handle nearly 600,000 barrels daily, or about 23 million gallons. Since 2010, companies have reported 17 spills bigger than the leak announced Thursday, according to U.S. Department of Transportation records. State officials have said they don’t believe the leak polluted any surface water bodies or drinking water systems. An aerial photo of the spill released by TransCanada on Twitter shows a darkened area of oil on flat agricultural land. There do not appear to be any waterways or towns nearby. TransCanada spokesman Matthew John said the company will need to do “extensive testing” along with federal regulators and independent testing facilities before they can pinpoint a cause. Residents near the spill reported a surge of activity as cleanup crews arrived at the scene. Suzie Easthouse, general manager at the Front Porch in Langford, a city southeast of the spill area, said the restaurant will be catering for TransCanada workers at the site. Easthouse said she’s serving Friday supper and a middle-of-the-night shift meal for 80 people, with meals for 100 people on Saturday. “I’m pretty much going to be working a 24-hour shift here now,” Easthouse said. Easthouse said she has mixed emotions about the pipeline, a tug between the business it has brought to the area and her environmental concerns. She said she thinks the spill will have lasting effects in the area. “It’s almost like everybody’s fears have come true with it,” Easthouse said. “It’s not the notoriety we really want in small town South Dakota.” Image of Amherst incident taken earlier today by aerial patrol as part of our initial response.

  • Wyoming game managers take public comment on grizzly bearsWyoming game managers take public comment on grizzly bears

    JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming Game and Fish Department public meeting on how to manage grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem drew comments and ideas from hunting guides who perceive there are too many grizzly bears and environmentalists insistent that Jackson Hole should remain a hunting-free sanctuary. About 100 people attended the meeting Wednesday night when they were asked their thoughts on population monitoring, research, conflict management, information and education and grizzly bear hunting. The comments and ideas voiced included prohibiting grizzly bear hunting until the Yellowstone region’s bears are connected with the grizzly bear population in northwest Montana; requiring wildlife managers to tell the public where tracked grizzlies are in real time when the bears venture into well-used areas; and requiring that meat from a hunted grizzly bear can’t be wasted, the Jackson Hole News & Guide reported. “I would recommend that the regulations say you can’t shoot a bear within a mile of a road,” said Maury Jones, a local ranch manager. Such a buffer, Jones said, could ensure that wildlife watchers enjoy their viewing experiences without worrying about seeing a grizzly bear die. Dan Thompson, the state’s large carnivore supervisor, said hunting grizzly bears would be “biologically sustainable” because there are an estimated 695 bears in the Yellowstone region of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently determined that the Yellowstone grizzly population no longer needed federal protection and turned management of the species over to the three states. Conflicts between humans and grizzly bears are increasing as the bear population expands. State game managers consider hunting as one of the tools needed to help control the situation. Other tools include capturing and relocating bears. Conservation groups generally oppose hunting of grizzly bears and several are suing to restore the federal protections, contending the bears are still threatened by a warming climate that limits their traditional food sources such as whitebark pine nuts and by increasing conflicts with humans.

  • UW Researchers’ Discovery May Keep Insect off of Endangered Species ListUW Researchers’ Discovery May Keep Insect off of Endangered Species List

    The recent discovery of a rare aquatic insect in Grand Teton National Park by University of Wyoming researchers may keep it off the endangered species list. Lusha Tronstad, an invertebrate zoologist with the Wyoming Natural Diversity Database (WYNDD) at UW, and her colleagues have been finding Zapada glacier or western glacier stoneflies in the Tetons the last three summers. “The stonefly was previously only known from northwestern Montana, but we heard a report a few years ago it may live in the Tetons,” Tronstad says. “We sampled in the Teton Range and found the stonefly in several alpine streams. Information from our study informed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and [the agency] reopened the comment period to reconsider the listing of this stonefly.” According to a New York Times article earlier this month, the western glacier stonefly and another species, the meltwater lednian stonefly, were proposed, in October 2016, for protection under the Endangered Species Act. A year later, a final decision was expected. However, the latest discovery of the western glacier stonefly in Grand Teton National Park and Montana’s Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness has put that decision on hold. “The reason they[U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service] put it out for comment again is because stoneflies were found 500 miles from where they were previously known in Glacier,” Tronstad says. “These insects are really special, in that they live in streams that are near glaciers,” Tronstad continues. “The reason people care is because the glaciers are melting. Glaciers, which are crucial to the stoneflies’ habitat, will be lost.” Stoneflies are important biological indicators of water quality. Stoneflies are considered “shredders,” meaning they break down leaves — that fill the glacier streams — into smaller pieces. Tronstad says there are currently no formal estimates as to how many western glacier stoneflies live in the Tetons, nor is there any number that has been determined as a necessary threshold to keep the insect off the endangered species list. Tronstad says she and colleagues have written a paper on the subject that is currently under review by Freshwater Biology, a journal that publishes papers on all aspects of the ecology of inland surface waters, including rivers and lakes, connected ground waters, flood plains and other freshwater wetlands. Her research colleagues are Joe Giersch, an aquatic entomologist at the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center with the U.S. Geological Survey; Scott Hotaling, a postdoctoral researcher at Washington State University; and Deb Finn, an assistant professor of biology at Missouri State University.

  • Tesla wants to electrify big trucks, adding to its ambitionsTesla wants to electrify big trucks, adding to its ambitions

    DETROIT (AP) — After more than a decade of making cars and SUVs — and, more recently, solar panels — Tesla Inc. wants to electrify a new type of vehicle: big trucks. The company unveiled its new electric semitractor-trailer Thursday night near its design center in Hawthorne, California. CEO Elon Musk said the semi is capable of traveling 500 miles (804 kilometers) on an electric charge — even with a full 80,000-pound (36,287-kilogram) load — and will cost less than a diesel semi considering fuel savings, lower maintenance and other factors. Musk said customers can put down a $5,000 deposit for the semi now and production will begin in 2019. “We’re confident that this is a product that’s better in every way from a feature standpoint,” Musk told a crowd of Tesla fans gathered for the unveiling. Musk didn’t reveal the semi’s price. The truck will have Tesla’s Autopilot system, which can maintain a set speed and slow down automatically in traffic. It also has a system that automatically keeps the vehicle in its lane. Musk said several Tesla semis will be able to travel in a convoy, autonomously following each other. Musk said Tesla plans a worldwide network of solar-powered “megachargers” that could get the trucks back up to 400 miles of range after charging for only 30 minutes. The move fits with Musk’s stated goal for the company of accelerating the shift to sustainable transportation. Trucks account for nearly a quarter of transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., according to government statistics. But the semi also piles on more chaos at the Palo Alto, California-based company. Tesla is way behind on production of the Model 3, a new lower-cost sedan, with some customers facing waits of 18 months or more. It’s also ramping up production of solar panels after buying Solar City Corp. last year. Tesla is working on a pickup truck and a lower-cost SUV and negotiating a new factory in China. Meanwhile, the company posted a record quarterly loss of $619 million in its most recent quarter. On Thursday night, Tesla surprised fans with another product: An updated version of its first sports car, the Roadster. Tesla says the new Roadster will have 620 miles of range and a top speed of 250 mph (402 kph). The car, coming in 2020, will have a base price of $200,000. Musk, too, is being pulled in many directions. He leads rocket maker SpaceX and is dabbling in other projects, including high-speed transit, artificial intelligence research and a new company that’s digging tunnels beneath Los Angeles to alleviate traffic congestion. “He’s got so much on his plate right now. This could present another distraction from really just making sure that the Model 3 is moved along effectively,” said Bruce Clark, a senior vice president and automotive analyst at Moody’s. Tesla’s semi is venturing into an uncertain market. Demand for electric trucks is expected to grow over the next decade as the U.S., Europe and China all tighten their emissions regulations. Electric truck sales totaled 4,100 in 2016, but are expected to grow to more than 70,000 in 2026, says Navigant Research. But most of that growth is expected to be for smaller, medium-duty haulers like garbage trucks or delivery vans. Those trucks can have a more limited range of 100 miles (160 kilometers) or less, which requires fewer expensive batteries. They can also be fully charged overnight. Long-haul semi trucks, on the other hand, would be expected to go greater distances, and that would be challenging. Right now, there’s little charging infrastructure on global highways. Without Tesla’s promised fast-charging, even a mid-sized truck would likely require a two-hour stop, cutting into companies’ efficiency and profits, says Brian Irwin, managing director of the North American industrial group for the consulting firm Accenture. Irwin says truck companies will have to watch the market carefully, because tougher regulations on diesels or an improvement in charging infrastructure could make electric trucks more viable very quickly. Falling battery costs also will help make electric trucks more appealing compared to diesels. But even lower costs won’t make trucking a sure bet for Tesla. It faces stiff competition from long-trusted brands like Daimler AG, which unveiled its own semi prototype last month. “These are business people, not fans, and they will need convinced that this truck is better for their balance sheet than existing technology. It probably is, based on the specs provided, but this isn’t necessarily a slam dunk,” said Rebecca Lindland, an executive analyst at Kelley Blue Book. Musk said Tesla will guarantee the semi’s powertrain for one million miles to help alleviate customers’ concerns.
