News of Riverton, Lander and Fremont County, Wyoming, from the Ranger's award winning journalists.
Jan 30, 2013 - Staff
In Sunday's Ranger, the page C-3 story "Wranglers beat depleted Wind River boys 61-53" should have said Shoshoni's win snapped a nine-year losing streak against Wind River. The Wranglers last beat Wind River in February 2004.
In Sunday's Ranger, the page one story "Superintendent bill passes; late amendment tough on Hill" about Senate File 104 removing most executive powers from the Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction, reported on a late amendment to the legislation. The bill was amended shortly before passage to include a provision calling for the superintendent to be moved to an office -- meaning a work space -- separate from the premises of the Wyoming Department of Education "immediately."
The language of the amendment does not call specifically for a police escort from the building, although eyewitnesses Friday afternoon said a law enforcement detail was sent to the superintendent's office to accomplish that task if necessary. The police escort did not take place Friday because the legislation had not yet been signed by the governor.
