Top, survivors and caretakers take the traditional first lap at the Relay For Life Event Friday night at Warrior Stadium in Worland. Right, Bonnie Amend’s travel partner, Jingles the Clown, rides in her pack. Jingles was a gift from Amend’s aunt more than 60 years ago. Her aunt was the first of many loved-ones Amend has lost to cancer that she honors each year during the Relay For Life. She is a cancer survivor herself for many years. However, she underwent surgery earlier this month and continues to wait on the results of her biopsy. The Relay kicked off with an address from Dawn Scott of Cody. Scott was diagnosed with cancer when she was 20 years old and is a 16-year survivor. She introduced the crowd to the “Stupid Cancer” program that provides a wide range of services for younger people with cancer.
Wyoming issues citations against Western Sugar
CHEYENNE (AP) — Wyoming workplace safety officials have proposed fining
Western Sugar Cooperative $194,000 for 39 citations at the company’s two
processing plants in the state.
Denver-based Western Sugar has plants in Lovell and Torrington.
The state Occupational Safety and Health Administration says its citations at the Torrington facility include numerous fall hazards, inadequate signage and failing to place safety guards around equipment with moving parts.
The Lovell facility citations included unmaintained personal protective equipment, failure to conduct hazard assessments and employee consumption of beverages in close proximity to chemicals.
OSHA previously cited the Lovell facility this year for 12 citations and proposed penalties totaling $71,000 following the death of a worker.
A Western Sugar spokesman Kent Wimmer says the company is cooperating with OSHA and highly values worker safety.

Worland Volunteer Fire fighters spray Aquarius Film Forming Foam on a fire pit and surrounding ground just south of Cactus Drive on Friday afternoon. Black smoke could be seen from the highway and the fire was quickly put out. The white foam can be seen on the embankment just below the spray near the fire fighters.
Small oil field fire quickly snuffed by firefighters
Liquid coming from a fire stack and igniting was soon under control
after it was reported to the Worland Fire Department.
The fire department responded around 1:30 p.m. on Friday with one engine and two command units. The location was easily found as a plume of black smoke marked the oil field area where the Carol Holly Company has a pumper.
The fire ran and ignited the fire pit close by, Worland Fire Chief Chris Kocher said. Occasionally valves have failures and the liquid bypasses the valve, he said. The cause of the fire will be determined by the company.
Upon arrival at the area on Cactus Drive, volunteers applied Aquarius Film Forming Foam, or A Triple F, which is carried on the engines for purposes like this, he said.
“The flare pit had the fire where it was intended to be,” he said.
The flare pit did as it was supposed to and prevented the fire from getting into the grasses and having a running fire into the valley.
Washakie County Ambulance and the Washakie County Sheriff’s Office were on standby.
The fire department was also called on Thursday evening to 789 Hwy. 20 North for a fire that covered 1.14 acres on private land. Shortly after the 6:40 call, crews had it knocked down. The cause is under investigation, Kocher said.
