LARAMIE, wyo – The director of a group called the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood says keeping children away from advertising is a growing challenge. Susan Linn is in Laramie as part of the U-W Consumer Issues Conference. Her group recently filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission regarding a cartoon series that features characters advertising a brand of shoes throughout the program. Linn is urging people to get involved in the complaint to try to stop this illegal practice.
LARAMIE, wyo – After growing by about 13 hundred acres on Tuesday, Yellowstone's Antelope Fire is continuing to expand. Fire Information Officer Marianne Baumberger says the fire has jumped the Yellowstone River, and it's sending up a big column of smoke.
"It spotted over across the Yellowstone and into an area of some heavy timber that's kind of sandwiched between the 2002 Broad Fire and some 1988 burn."
