State officials have called Hill's document request overly broad.

A legislative committee has been ordered to investigate Hill, who already has undergone several other probes. Many believe the new committee's effort is a precursor to impeachment.

B-T gets lockers

JACKSON -- Two bear-resistant food lockers are headed to the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

The 8-by-8-foot food storage lockers will be installed near Turpin Meadows and Pacific Creek. They are large enough for horse and stock feed. The group's wildlife program manager said the public locker idea was born out of some bear conflict field work the coalition did last year.

Rig count dips one

Wyoming's count dipped one.
