Liz Cheney: No political plans

CASPER -- Liz Cheney says her recent move to Wyoming wasn't motivated by politics.

The daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney and her family moved from Virginia to Jackson Hole earlier this year. She's also been making the rounds at Republican events around Wyoming, raising speculation that she could be preparing to run for office.

Cheney said she and her family were thrilled about moving home and her children were excited to be close to their grandparents.

When asked whether she was considering a run for Congress in 2014, she said she's very focused on helping Mitt Romney in this year's election.

Cheney said she hasn't spoken to Sen. Mike Enzi. There's been speculation he might not run again to allow Cheney to run.

Grizzly captured and relocated

CODY -- The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped and relocated another adult female grizzly bear.

The agency says the bear was captured Tuesday for damaging apple trees and frequenting a residence near Clark in northern Wyoming.

The bear then was relocated to the Blackrock Creek drainage on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, about 35 miles northeast of Jackson.
