UGRB Ozone Outlook for January 19 - 21, 2020 (posted 1/17/2020)
Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality
This is notification that the Air Quality Division (AQD) of Wyoming’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has issued an Upper Green River Basin (UGRB) Ozone Outlook starting on Sunday, January 19 and forecasted to persist through Tuesday, January 21, 2020. The AQD will continue forecasting daily to determine if an Ozone Action Day should be issued to implement Ozone Contingency Plans.

UGRB Ozone Outlooks are issued when meteorological conditions conducive to ozone formation are forecasted to persist for multiple days in the UGRB Ozone Nonattainment Area. Wintertime ozone forms in the Basin when there is a presence of ozone precursor emissions including oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds coupled with meteorological conditions, such as strong temperature inversions, low winds, snow cover, and sunlight.

During an UGRB Ozone Outlook, please consider reducing ozone precursor emissions. Some actions that could be done to reduce ozone precursor emissions include: minimizing idling of vehicles and engines, not overfilling gas tanks, tightening fuel caps, deferring truck and equipment fueling to evening hours, and postponing construction activities and open burning. When UGRB Ozone Outlooks are issued, please consider postponing non-essential activities or completing essential activities prior to the days included in the UGRB Ozone Outlook to reduce precursor emissions and ground-level ozone formation.

Current information on ozone levels at the Air Quality Division's monitoring stations at Pinedale, Daniel South, Boulder, Big Piney, and Juel Spring can be found at www.wyvisnet.com. More information on ozone and the health effects of ozone are available at the Wyoming Department of Health website, https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/infectious-disease-epidemiology-unit/disease/ozone/.

UGRB Ozone Outlook para el 19 y 21 de enero de 2020
El Departamento de Calidad Ambiental de Wyoming
Esta es una notificación de que la División de Calidad del Aire (AQD) del Departamento de Calidad Ambiental (DEQ) de Wyoming ha emitido una Perspectiva de Ozono de la Cuenca del Alto Río Verde (UGRB) a partir del domingo 19 de enero y se pronostica que persistirá hasta el martes 21 de enero de 2020. El AQD continuará pronosticando diariamente para determinar si se debe emitir un Día de Acción del Ozono para implementar los Planes de Contingencia del Ozono.

Las Perspectivas de ozono de UGRB se emiten cuando se pronostica que las condiciones meteorológicas propicias para la formación de ozono persistirán durante varios días en el Área de no logro de ozono de UGRB. El ozono de invierno se forma en la cuenca cuando hay presencia de emisiones de precursores de ozono, incluidos óxidos de nitrógeno y compuestos orgánicos volátiles, junto con condiciones meteorológicas, como fuertes inversiones de temperatura, vientos bajos, cubierta de nieve y luz solar.

Durante una Perspectiva de ozono UGRB, considere reducir las emisiones de precursores de ozono. Algunas acciones que podrían hacerse para reducir las emisiones de precursores de ozono incluyen: minimizar el ralentí de vehículos y motores, no llenar excesivamente los tanques de gas, apretar los tapones de combustible, diferir la carga de combustible de camiones y equipos hasta las horas de la tarde y posponer las actividades de construcción y la quema al aire libre. Cuando se emiten las Perspectivas de ozono de UGRB, considere posponer actividades no esenciales o completar actividades esenciales antes de los días incluidos en las Perspectivas de ozono de UGRB para reducir las emisiones de precursores y la formación de ozono a nivel del suelo.

Puede encontrar información actual sobre los niveles de ozono en las estaciones de monitoreo de la División de Calidad del Aire en Pinedale, Daniel South, Boulder, Big Piney y Juel Spring en www.wyvisnet.com. Puede encontrar más información sobre el ozono y los efectos del ozono en la salud en el sitio web del Departamento de Salud de Wyoming, https: //health.wyo. gobierno / salud pública / infeccioso unidad de epidemiología de la enfermedad / enfermedad / ozono /.

John Paravicini resigns from Pinedale Town Council (posted 1/15/2020)
At the January 13, 2020 regular Pinedale Town Council meeting, Councilman John Paravicini submitted a Letter of Resignation, effective the end of that meeting. He said it was with great sadness that he was resigning from the Council, having served on it for the past 18 months. He intends to apply for the Sublette County Assessor position that just opened up with the resignation of Jeness Saxton. Paravicini has worked in the Assessor’s office for sixteen years and is a good potential candidate to step into her position for the remainder of the term.

"I would like to thank Mayor Murdock and my fellow Council members for the privilege of helping govern my hometown these past 18 months. I am proud of the many accomplishments that we have realized and hope that my replacement will help maintain the momentum and positive environment that we have created…. Lastly, I would like to thank the residents of Pinedale who trusted me to serve on this Council. It has always been my goal to give my best efforts to improve our town and make it a place that we, and future generations, can be proud of."

Mayor Matt Murdock and the other Council members thanked Paravicini for his service and dedication to the position.

The Pinedale Town Council will address the vacancy at their next Town Council meeting and announce the steps for advertising for applications of interest to fill Councilman Paravicini’s vacant chair. The seat has another 2-1/2 years to go on the term.

Paleoindian red ocher paint quarry in Wyoming
Upper Green River Basin Chapter WAS
The Upper Green River Basin Chapter of the Wyoming Archaeology Society will be having a meeting on Tuesday, January 21st, at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale. There will be a short business meeting followed by a presentation by Spencer Pelton, the new Wyoming State Archaeologist. Everyone is welcome for the free program.

PRESENTATION: "The Powars II Paleoindian Red Ocher Quarry, located in Sunrise, Wyoming, is the only identified Indigenous paint mine in North America" by Spencer Pelton, Wyoming State Archaeologist

The site was discovered in the historic era around 1940, but hasn't been the subject of intensive archaeological inquiry until the last several years. Recent excavations have yielded a large assemblage of early and middle Paleoindian artifacts spanning Clovis to Hell Gap times (ca. 13,000 to 11,000 years ago). This presentation will summarize the history of investigations at the site, major findings from recent excavations, and ongoing historic preservation efforts at the site.

Spencer Pelton received his PhD from the University of Wyoming in 2018 and became the Wyoming State Archaeologist in November 2019. Spencer primarily researches the early Prehistory of the High Plains and Rocky Mountains, but also maintains interests in global human dispersal and the peopling of the Americas. Spencer conducts excavations at several Paleoindian sites in Wyoming, most recently at the Powars II ocher quarry and the Sisters Hill site. Spencer splits his time between Laramie and Douglas, WY with his wife Hallie and their dog Cashew.

UPCOMING MEETINGS: Please visit www.sublette.com/was for information about upcoming presentations. We already have speakers scheduled and posted for February and April meetings, and will post March when available.

MEMBERSHIP: Dues for 2020 membership are due by end of March. $20/Individual, $25/Family. If you would like to be a member and have not paid yet this year, please bring payment to the January, February or March meetings, or print and mail the membership form (http://www.sublette.com/was/pdf/Membershipform.pdf) along with your dues. Membership dues help support WAS efforts at the state and local level including paying travel for speakers to come here to give great presentations.



SaturdayU to focus on future of Wyoming Fossil Fuels (posted 1/15/2020)
Presentation in Pinedale on Jan. 23
Sublette BOCES
Sublette BOCES along with the Sublette County Library are pleased to present SaturdayU, a offering from the University of Wyoming, the event will be held Thursday, Jan. 23, 2020. The theme of this program is "A Low-Carbon Future for Wyoming Fossil Fuels?"

Wyoming exports the bulk of its abundant energy resources and thus is subject to market and policy developments beyond its borders. An increasing number of states are adopting polices that mandate the utilization of renewable and clean energy resources. The federal government continues to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from industrial facilities, including coal-fired power plants and natural gas separation plants. This Saturday University program will explore the global, national and local decisions that affect our communities. Experts from the School of Energy Resources will explain current UW projects in western Wyoming as well as provide an important overview that will shape a community discussion about what the coming energy transition means for Wyoming.

Three professors from the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources will be presenting, with Dr. Jean Garrison, UW Director of the Office of Engagement and Outreach moderating. The evening begins at 5:30 pm at the Sublette County Library Lovatt Room, Pinedale with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and beverages.

At 6 pm, Mark Northam, Ph.D, Executive Director, UW School of Energy Resources (UW-SER) will present his talk, "The Coming Energy Transition: Implications for Wyoming and the Globe." This presentation will frame the discussion regarding the energy transition that is underway as it highlights the implications these changes have for our communities and state.

At 6:50 pm, Scott Quillinan’s, Geologist and Director of Research, UW-SER, presentation is titled "Techological Challenges and Opportunities for Wyoming: Ongoing Projects Advanced by the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources." This talk will introduce several initiatives advanced by SER that seek to develop new technologies and new markets for Wyoming resources: Wyoming CarbonSAFE, approaches to net-zero and carbon negative coal combustion technologies, novel non-thermal uses for Wyoming coal and the ongoing critical mineral exploration to support the quickly growing demand for electric vehicle batteries.

At 7:40 pm, Kipp Coddington, director of Energy Policy and Economics, UW-SER will give the final presentation of the evening, "What SER’s New Policy Center is Doing to Help the State of Wyoming." In this presentation Coddington will describe how The Center for Energy Regulation and Policy supports policies decision-makers and scientists by creating a conduit for research to provide interdisciplinary information and knowledge to contribute more directly to Wyoming’s citizenry and economy; by providing effective policy development and assessment, and by facilitating partnerships with public, private and non-governmental entities.

SCUF reminds residents to have working CO alarms in the home (posted 1/13/2020)
Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer
Sublette County Unified Fire
On Wednesday January 8, 2020, Sublette County Unified Fire was dispatched to a Carbon Monoxide (CO) incident in Pinedale. Firefighters from Battalion 1 responded to the home where a family, including three young children, were found waiting outside. The family explained the Carbon Monoxide Alarm that was recently installed in the kitchen area had activated with a loud alarm. Firefighters investigate/13/2020 combustion. Firefighters advised the homeowners not to use the stove top until it could be checked by a professional. Sublette County EMS checked the family members for possible Carbon Monoxide exposure to be sure everyone was safe. The family did the right thing by going outside immediately and calling 911.

SCUF would like to remind residents to have working CO alarms in their homes on every level and outside each separate sleeping area. CO alarms are designed to alarm before potentially life-threatening levels of carbon monoxide are reached. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 400 people die each year in the United States from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Proper installation, operation, and maintenance of fuel-burning appliances in the home is the most important factor in reducing the risk of CO poisoning. At low levels, CO poisoning symptoms can include dizziness, headache or flu-like symptoms. At high levels, victims can have mental confusion, vomiting, and they can even die. At extremely high levels, it is possible to lose consciousness suddenly without experiencing less severe symptoms.

Additional Information: Usually our recommendation is to have the residents enlist the help of a professional appliance service technician to evaluate and ensure the appliance is in proper working order. Early detection of CO is key. Without these detectors you would be unaware of the dangerous gas in the event an appliance is malfunctioning. If anyone would like more information regarding carbon monoxide detector use, installation or the SCUF smoke detector program feel free to contact the SCUF office in Pinedale at 307-367-4550.

2020 All School Reunion over Rendevous Day in July
Pinedale All-School Class Reunion July 9-12, 2020 (posted 1/8/2020)
Alumni please sign up soon
Bill Johnson
Notice to all Pinedale graduates and near graduates. We will be hosting an All School Reunion on Rendezvous weekend at the old home 20!! We expect all of you to head back to this same ole' Sublette County dirt that once again will recharge your soul! As soon as you enter The Green River Valley and see the beauty of those mountains again you will say, "Damn it's good to be home!"

The Rendezvous Pageant is the 2nd Sunday in July. The days leading up to the pageant are busy too. The Mountain Man Museum puts on talks that tell of the Indian way of survival and the same for the mountain man. There is the annual Community Church pancake breakfast. The Rendezvous Parade is held on Saturday and is always a big event. We intend to line up all our Veterans and honor them in this parade. If you can walk down Main Street and endure all the noise and applause, that will be big! If you can't walk that far we will push you in a wheel chair or haul you in a side by side ATV. You will all be honored! Bring your military cap.

There will be Indian dancing and singing in the park and dozens of booths selling their wares. If that is not enough there are nightly rodeos for entertainment. That lists the rendezvous side of things. What about reunion events? We will sign you in Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. If you prepay $100 for a couple and $50 for a single you will not have to stand in the slow line but can grab your packet and proceed. We would like you to prepay as soon as possible for the following reason. We can't properly plan without knowing about how many will attend. This is especially critical for the food and the entertainment. For instance, we sure don't want you to go hungry! Also, we might try to hire some professional musicians for a big event if we have enough people and the money! New music for the newer grads! Older music for the older grads!

One evening we might plan a story telling event at the school auditorium. Many untruths will be told I'm sure! Possibly we could schedule a golf tournament and a horse shoe tournament. Maybe others would like to play Pinochle or Bridge. We are presently open to new ideas so let us know if you have one. Special committees of "go getters" will make most of the final decisions.

We will try to line up a big barbecue or smaller ones if that makes the most sense. There will be Pinedale graduate musicians that will get together and perform. Karaoke would be cool! Maybe we can line up boats to give rides to the head of the lake. Driving up Skyline Drive to Elkhart Park never gets tiresome and most of the road is freshly repaved and widened. Forget Green River Lake. That wash board road will ruin your car! It's maintained by the Forest Service!

We presently have $4,100 in our all school reunion account which is money left over from the last all school reunion. Make out your checks to 2020 All School Reunion and then write in the year you graduated or would have graduated. That will help us keep track. If the money is a problem, send less. We want all of you to be here! Mail to P O Box 2354, Pinedale WY 82941
These are tenuous times. For everyone's good we need to reconnect and spread the Love. It may be our last chance to do so! Bill Johnson

We still have their addresses from last time but many are not current addresses. It is a big job to find everyone by mail. This time we are doing it mostly on Facebook. Whether you have a computer or not it will be YOUR job to look up the "Pinedale All School Class Reunion" Facebook page to get updates. The reunion is scheduled for the 9th, 10th, and 11th, of July. The Sunday pageant is on the 12th.

There is no formal offer, but if Big Piney- Marbleton graduates want to join us for the barbecue, music, and other events then we encourage it. We need to build a better bridge with our Sublette County friends. This could be a great start! We all like to visit don't we? You just have to let us know and pay your fair share.

Finding a room on Rendezvous week-end could be a big problem for the Tourists! You have the advantage of knowing way ahead of time that you need to reserve a room. Do it! Many of you can stay with friends. As a last resort bring your air mattress, sleeping bag, and a small tent. We can help find you places to camp. Ya’ all come back here, ya’ hear! No excuses just like in school!

Our reunion organization works like this. We are trying to find class leaders for every class that will attempt to get in touch with their classmates by computer or by mail or both. All of you know where someone lives that we don't. Help us by contacting them. Otherwise a lot of people are going to be left out! Find out who your class leaders are and work with them. Later on a list of all the class leaders will be posted on the reunion page. We will have special committees that put together the events. So far we have very little representation past 1989. That needs to change!
