Snowstorm heading in

JACKSON -- Bad news for travelers but good news for skiers: A significant winter storm is headed into Wyoming this weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the western Wyoming high country from Kemmerer north through Yellowstone.

Forecasters say the storm won't be so bad down low, but heavy snow will fall in the mountains. That could present problems for people trying to get across Teton Pass west of Jackson.

Meteorologist Dave Lipson with the Weather Service in Riverton says Teton Pass could get 2 feet or more of snow.

Not-guilty plea in fatal wreck

CASPER -- A man accused of causing a fatal crash near Bar Nunn in October has pleaded not guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide. Ryan Nordstrom entered his plea in Casper Thursday.

Nordstrom worked in North Dakota and was driving through Wyoming at the time of the crash on Interstate 25 south. Authorities say the 27-year-old rear-ended a U-Haul trailer being hauled by a pickup. Authorities say the impact caused the pickup to cross a lane and flip. Twenty-seven-year-old Daniel Barto was driving the truck and died.

Utility sending out refunds

CHEYENNE -- A Cheyenne utility says it has mailed refunds to customers who were overbilled since January 2005.

Officials at Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power told the Wyoming Public Service Commission Thursday that they have fixed mistakes in customer accounts that resulted in more than $1 million in overbilling.
