Science fair judges needed

Central Wyoming College seeks judges to rate projects created by middle and high school students during the West Central Regional Science Fair in late January.

Fair coordinator Suki Smaglik is asking prospective judges to evaluate the projects anytime from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 27 and/or Jan. 28. She said it is helpful if the judges have experience in science, math, technology, engineering and/or science/health.

Smaglik also is asking companies and organizations to sponsor a prize or donate small giveaway items for students.

The public can view the entries Jan. 29, with an award ceremony following at 1:30 p.m. in room 100.

To judge the projects or make a donation, contact Smaglik at 855-2146 or

Delinquent brand period ends

CHEYENNE -- The Wyoming Livestock Board wants to remind residents that the delinquent brand period has drawn to a close on the 2013 renewal period.

In accordance with new legislation passed in 2013, any brand that was up for renewal and was not renewed by the March 1 deadline was considered delinquent.

Any delinquent brands that were not renewed by Dec. 31 will be declared legally abandoned and by law will be available to be applied for by other applicants. As part of the abandoned process, all delinquent brands not renewed before Dec. 31 will be moved to the abandoned brand category at the soonest convenient time after Jan. 1.

As part of the research process on newly abandoned brands, recording staff will check for any delinquent fees that have been submitted to the Wyoming Livestock Board before Dec. 31. Those fees that have been submitted before the Dec. 31 deadline will be evidenced by a postmark or agency date stamp. Acceptance of applications for the newly abandoned brands from the 2013 renewal will begin Monday in order to process those delinquent brands received that have been postmarked before Dec. 31.

After a delinquent brand has been deemed abandoned, the applications for delinquent brands will be processed and researched for identical and look-a-like conflicts on a first-come, first-served basis. No lists of abandoned brands from the 2013 renewal will be published or released until after Monday. Lists of abandoned brands can be viewed at the Livestock Board office or ordered from the office.
