Cheyenne, WY – It is still legal in Wyoming for passengers to have an open container of alcohol in a moving vehicle. A bill to outlaw this narrowly died Wednesday in the state legislature. The bill banning open containers of alcohol needed just one more vote in the House of Representatives to become law. But, for now it is dead. The sponsor of this bill, Senator Tony Ross, says this is the angriest he's ever been. Those voting against the bill say there are other laws on the book that focus on drunk driving and this bill would go too far.
Gillette, WY – Developers of the new Cam-plex Multi-Event Center in Gillette are hoping to sell the naming rights to the facility. But general manager Dan Barks says it won't be easy to find a big-name, big-money sponsor because of Gillette's remote location and low population. Barks says it might prove easier if the facility was along Interstate 90, which it is not. Barks says he's heard estimates that the facility might get two (M) million dollars for naming rights. That revenue would come in handy.
