The Sublette County Chamber of Commerce held their 2023 annual gathering on Friday, March 24th at the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale. The event included a scavenger hunt through the Museum where attendees could meet with several of the new small businesses in the county showing some of the food items they had for sale. Several small businesses were on hand from Pinedale, Big Piney and Marbleton displaying their drinks, food services, fresh produce, and custom catering services. Food items were available for sampling including crackers, cheeses, fruits, fresh hydroponic-grown salad greens & vegetables, healthy drinks, freeze dried foods, mini cheesecakes and cookies. The Boulder Store provided a cash bar for the event. Prizes for the scavenger hunt included an arrowhead necklace and custom engraved pocket knives.
Chamber Executive Director, Kaddy Fyfe Shivers gave out their annual awards for several categories. Chamber members voted on their choices for these awards.
Business of the Year: Engel & Völkers - Big Piney – Sierra Banks (sierrabanks.evrealestate.com/)
Non-Profit of the Year: Main Street Pinedale, (www.mainstreetpinedale.com)
Going Green Business: Log Cabin Motel, Pinedale – Sofia and Forest Wakefield (www.thelogcabinmotel.com/)
Highlighted businesses were:
Mountain Fresh Produce and Secret Garden Café: This is a brand new business that hopes to be open by mid-April in Pinedale. They will be located at 461 S Pine Street. Sisters Sierra and Savannah Sherman were at the event to showcase their products. They will be offering local hydroponic-grown fresh produce. Hydroponics means these plants are grown in water instead of soil, which allows them to grow up to 50% faster. Mountain Fresh Produce does not use any sprays, pesticides or harmful chemicals of any kind, so produce is clean, fresh, and toxin-free. Currently they have a variety of lettuces, kale, arugula, mustard greens, water cress, bok choy, lemon balm, basil, parsley, oregano, peppermint, chives, cilantro, carrots and radishes. Coming soon will be spinach, dill, thyme, tomatoes, egg plant, squash, cucumbers, onions, sugar snap peas, peppers, leaks, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, artichokes, celery, mushrooms, dragon fruit, watermelon, berries, and avocadoes. They will also have different kinds of berries and citrus fruits imported. Customers will also be able to taste a lot of their products and purchase fresh produce in their up-front retail cafe. They will be offering weekly pick-up orders with free home-delivery in Pinedale on orders over $50. They can be reached at 307-749-2740 (Vikki) or 307-749-6407 (Savannah), by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on the web at www.Mountain-Fresh-Produce.com. (They’re looking for help, if interested, let them know.)
RutRoe Survival Supply – Freeze Dried Foods: Stacey Roe was on hand to give samples of her wide variety of freeze dried foods. These included several different kinds of ice cream and candy snacks. Freeze drying is a process of removing water from foods, which extends their shelf life and makes them more transportable. Imagine being up in the mountains for a long backpacking trip and getting to having the treat (but not the mess) of ice cream! Products that were showcased included freeze dried mint chocolate chip ice cream, blue cookie crunch ice cream, birthday cake ice cream, cotton candy ice cream, chocolate mudslide ice cream, s’mores ice cream, sprinkled animal cookie ice cream, pumpkin pie, star bursts, skittles, nerd crunchy clusters, and Greek yogurt strawberry bites. All these and more are great for healthy snacks as well as convenient foods to take on hiking trips and outings. RutRoe Survival Supply can be found on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.

Please watch out for animals on the road (posted 3/25/2023)
Pronghorn herd on Paradise Road on Saturday, March 25th. Photo by Pinedale Online!
In addition to it already having been a very hard winter on big game, the deep snow is making it hard for animals to get around and find food. It is not uncommon now to find herds of deer and antelope using the roads as their travel corridors because it is the easier path to get around.
The tall berms of snow/ice on both sides of the road from the months of snow plowing also hinders the ability of animals to get off the road when traffic comes along. Drivers can easily come up over a hill and suddenly find a whole herd of antelope in their lane, or encounter them suddenly in their headlights on a dark highway at night. Vehicles that are traveling very fast, or that can’t stop quickly, can sadly run into and kill or injure numerous animals in a herd all at once when this happens.
These pictures were taken on Saturday, March 25th on Paradise Road south of Boulder. This herd traveled a good couple of miles down the road before finally finding a place to exit, right before a big County snow plow came in the lane where they had just been.

Wyoming Legislature Wrap-Up – March 23, 2023 (posted 3/23/2023)
Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
Hello Sublette County and LaBarge, this is Albert Sommers reporting after the end of the 2023 General Session of the 67th Legislature. This session was different than any I have previously been part of. We had more freshman House members, twenty-nine, than any time during my service in the Legislature. As Speaker of the House it was my job to ensure that the floor ran smoothly and everyone adhered to the Rules of the House. Due to the number of new members, more debate occurred on the floor than we would normally see. Debate is a good thing, but too much debate slows the process down. We are constitutionally limited to 60 days of session over a two-year period, and we had scheduled 37 days for this General Session. Despite these challenges, I believe we had a very productive session and moved Wyoming forward. Keep reading to see how.
The various appropriation (spending) bills that passed the Legislature will have a lasting positive impact on Wyoming. HB1 - The Supplemental Budget bill, resulted in the Legislature saving nearly $1.4 billion, the most ever put to savings in a single budget in the State’s history. For every $1 spent in HB1, roughly $3.5 dollars were saved. Wyoming currently receives about 1/3 of its revenue from investment earnings, and measures taken during this legislative session will add to that. This will help generations of Wyomingites.
Specifically, the supplemental budget bill pays $8 million for property tax refunds to residential homeowners, restores deep cuts made during the pandemic to health care for Wyoming’s poorest citizens, fully funds K-12 education and brings pay for state employees up to their 2013 real wage levels.
HB0195 - American rescue plan act appropriations-amendments redistributed unspent dollars from the original amount Wyoming received from the federal government in the American Rescue Plan Act. HB195 put $12 million toward grants for outdoor recreation and tourism, $3 million toward hunger initiatives, $20 million for local government support projects, $30 million for water and sewer projects, and $40 million for health facility capital construction. I successfully passed an amendment that pulls $15 million of the health facility construction dollars into a separate fund to be used for inflationary pressure on already funded health facility projects. This pot of money should allow the Sublette County hospital to be eligible to apply for an additional $5 million in grant money for inflation of construction costs. These funds will help Wyoming communities improve or sustain their quality of life.
Other appropriation bills will make a difference in Wyoming. SF0146 - State funded capital construction provides dollars for construction at the University of Wyoming, community colleges, and at the Wyoming State Fair. HB0093 - Omnibus water bill-construction continues Wyoming’s long tradition of investing in Wyoming’s people through expenditures on water programs, most of which are funded by dedicated severance tax dollars. As a part of HB93, the Legislature put $30 million of our excess revenue into the Water Account III, because an investment in future impoundment projects is essential for Wyoming.
I sponsored several bills this session that dealt with issues from my local communities. HB0108 - Sale of THC vaping devices and edibles to minors-prohibited was brought to me by our local prevention committee. This bill prohibits the sale to minors of dangerous products like Delta 8 THC. HB0222 - Colorado river advisory committee will give water users in the Green River Basin and Little Snake River Basin a voice at the table in the quickly evolving policies on the
Colorado River. There is no question that issues surrounding the Colorado River will have consequential and perhaps catastrophic repercussions in the future for those of us in the Upper Green, if the hydrology of the Basin does not substantially improve. We must remain vigilant on this topic.
I passed a constitutional amendment HJ0002 - Constitutional amendment-residential property class by getting it amended into SJ0003 - Property tax residential property class. Northwest Wyoming Senators and Representatives worked together to get this amendment available to the citizens in the next election. If the amendment passes, it will allow residential property tax to be separated from commercial and agricultural property tax, which will give future legislatures more options to provide residential property tax relief. HB0098 - Property tax-homeowner's exemption was converted into my HB0054 - Homestead exemption and passed the House, but inexplicably died in the Senate Revenue Committee. This bill would have exempted homeowners from paying taxes on the first $50,000 worth of assessed value and would have amounted to an average of $300 savings for homeowners. The bill also would have backfilled lost revenue of local government by using state funds.
I also drafted bills that passed the session but were handed off to other legislators. These bills include HB0188 - Wolf depredation compensation, which provides livestock producers with compensation for wolf damage in the predator designated area; HB0123 - Collection of antler or horns by residents and nonresidents is a bill that gives Wyoming residents a seven day head start over non-residents during horn hunting season; HB0128 - Voyeurism within enclosed spaces solves a hole in the law and was brought to me by the Sublette County Attorney’s Office; and HB0180 - Brucellosis testing-notification requirements requires the Wyoming Livestock Board to create a communication plan with producers when non-negative brucellosis tests are found. It also requires the State Vet Lab to provide notice back to an affected herd owner within 3 days of discovery. This bill was in response to a non-negative case last fall in Sublette County, and the slow communications that followed.
The local issue of what to do about the increasing number of guided fishing boats on Wyoming’s rivers, both domiciled in Wyoming and from outside Wyoming, will be the number one priority for the Travel, Recreation and Wildlife Committee this interim. I drafted two bills that prompted this interim topic: HB0084-Regulation of commercially guided boats and HB0232-Outfitters and guides-amendments. I hope my local fishermen and fishing guides will engage in this statewide issue in upcoming months.
There has been much discussion during and after the legislative session about the three bills that I did not send to committee. Local Sublette County residents were bombarded by robo-texts from the National Freedom Caucus about those three bills.
Part of my leadership responsibility is choosing which standing committee a bill goes to or whether it is sent to a committee at all. I take this responsibility seriously; bad policy can create major consequences for Wyoming. Bills that are unconstitutional, not well vetted, poorly written, duplicate bills or debates, and bills that negate local control, restrict the rights of people, or risk costly litigation financed by the people of Wyoming are – and have traditionally been – less likely to be introduced.
Other leadership positions share the ability to hold bills back. House Majority Floor Leader Neiman, a Freedom Caucus member, held 57 bills back. A total of 30 bills died in my drawer and nearly 100 House bills and Senate Files died in House committees. The process for a bill to evolve from an idea into a law is arduous, as it should be.
Please see the following link for my explanation of the fate of those three bills: https://cowboystatedaily.com/2023/02/26/albert-sommers-im-focused-on-wyoming-solutions-not-out-of-state-influences/
In a nutshell, a nearly exact duplicate of the school choice bill died in committee earlier in the session. I sent Chloe’s Law out to committee but left the other transgender surgery bill in my desk because they were solving the same issue and conflicted with each other. The Parental Rights Act bill was unconstitutional and violates my ethos of local control. The reality is, the Wyoming Legislature met for only 37 days and there is not enough time to hear every bill. Time constraints are a major factor in determining what is debated.
I heard from many of you on the campaign trail about very specific issues that were important to you, and I made promises to address them. One of those topics was transgender athletes. I co-sponsored SF133, which bans biological males from participating in all-female sports for grades 7-12. This bill passed and is now law. Another was eliminating cross-over voting. I voted in favor of bill HB103, which limits when a person can change their party affiliation, but this bill went too far in my opinion and will likely have to be fixed in subsequent sessions. I also brought tax relief bills and voted for others’ tax relief bills this session, and I will bring back my Homestead Exemption bill next session.
Abortion was one of the hottest topics during my campaign, with passionate people on both sides of the issue. I ended up voting for SF0109-Prohibiting chemical abortions and the revised Senate version of HB0152-Life is a Human Right Act. Both bills needed cleaning up, but I think both bills are a poor substitute for the trigger bill that was passed a year ago and is now in the court system. I do not think a pro-life stance should exclude being pro-mother and pro-child. HB0001-General government appropriations provided more money in the Supplemental Budget for the Developmentally Disabled Waiver program and DD preschools, helping populations of children with great needs. I supported HB0004-Medicaid twelve-month postpartum coverage, which extends Medicaid coverage for women and children up to twelve months postpartum. I believe HB4 is one of the most impactful bills to pass the Legislature this session. I also supported SF0079-Plan of safe care-newborns, which requires care providers to develop plans of safe care when the newborn has been affected by substance abuse. And I supported HB0111-Endangering children-fentanyl and SF0094-Federal Indian Child Welfare Act codification. Both of these bills were created to help children.
With the General Session now over, we move to interim work. Much more work will be accomplished in the next 10 months, before the next legislative session convenes in January 2024. I invite each of you to get engaged on the issues that matter to you. Follow the work and ask questions. I can be reached at email@example.com with questions or comments.

Free Emergency Health Profile available (posted 3/16/2023)
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
Sublette County residents now have the ability to create a free Emergency Health Profile at emergencyprofile.org to share opt-in medical information with Sublette County Communications 911 Center in the case of an emergency. RapidSOS, the world’s first emergency response data platform, teamed up with The American Heart Association, The American Red Cross, and Direct Relief to launch this initiative in an effort to get first responders critical health information in an emergency.
Today, 9-1-1 telecommunicators are forced to rely on the limited information a wireless phone call can provide, often resulting in dispatching delays and first responders arriving on scene under-informed. In partnership with public safety, RapidSOS created an emergency response data platform that securely links life-saving data from over 350M connected devices to over 4,800 Emergency Communication Centers nationwide - protecting more than 300M people in the U.S. This data helps the Sublette County Communications 911 Center accelerate response times and provides first responders with incident-specific information prior to arriving on-scene.
The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office Communications 911 Center became RapidSOS ready on 3/13/2023. Our call-takers use the RapidSOS Portal, a browser-based tool, to access accurate caller location and additional life-saving information when responding to wireless 911 calls.
How can you become RapidSOS Ready?
Citizens can create their free Emergency Health Profile by visiting emergencyprofile.org and entering pertinent medical and profile information, such as:
• Name, Date of Birth, and address
• Pre-existing conditions
• Medical Notes (ex. Mental health issues, developmental disabilities, etc.)
• COVID-19 symptoms
• Emergency contacts
"Our 911 agencies and first responders do incredible work every day to keep our communities safe," said RapidSOS Senior Director of Public Safety, Karin Marquez. "We hope that the Emergency Health Profile will provide Sublette County telecommunicators and first responders with another tool to help them respond quickly and provide the appropriate care during a caller’s time of need."
To ensure data privacy, information is associated with an individual’s phone number and is only made available to first responders when a 911 call is placed from the associated phone number. To learn more and create a free Emergency Health Profile, visit www.emergencyprofile.org.
