Peter Pan may have been the biggest star at the annual South Side Elementary Egg Drop Thursday. Each year, students in Donna McGarvin and Jenifer Berdahl’s third grade classes wrap their raw eggs in containers and toss them off the roof of the school to see if the egg survives. This year, there was a sticky theme of peanut butter. It worked surprisingly well. Above Principal Wade Sanford tosses an egg. Left, Ethan Warren and below, Chase Johnson show off their intact eggs.
at Hot Springs State Park
By Bob Vines
WORLAND – An organizational meeting to discuss the future of
Thermopolis’ TePee Pool at the Hot Springs County Museum attracted 110
supporters of the iconic hot springs pool Wednesday night.
According to one of the meeting organizers Amber Galovich, of Thermopolis, the group hopes to bring the issue up at a larger event with state officials at Hot Springs State Park in a little over a week.
Wyoming terminated their 35-year lease agreement with the pool’s operators and have informed the owners they must tear down the building and remove their property by May 6. The state wants to make room for a facility that would include high-speed slides, diving boards, a lazy river, a splash park and climbing walls, according to Wyoming Director of State Parks Milward Simpson.
The state claims that TePee Pools failed to meet the purpose of the lease which was to create a first-class facility that meets the standards and trends of the industry and is up to the level of comparable facilities in the Rocky Mountain area.
After the announcement was made public last week, TePee Pool’s lawyer Ed Moriarity told the Associated Press that the company won’t “acquiesce to (Simpson) peaceably.”
Galovich was surprised by the large showing Wednesday night. “It was a much better turnout (than I expected),” she said. “When I first posted it on Facebook I didn’t get any response so I got really nervous.”
She said that as the meeting progressed, it was apparent that people wanted more information. With this in mind, plans for the Hot Springs State Park meeting began to take shape.

Judge issues narrow
ruling in public records case
By Bob Moen
CHEYENNE (AP) — A state judge has ruled that elected officials cannot
use the Wyoming Public Records Act to obtain massive amounts of internal
documents from other government agencies.
District Judge Peter Arnold issued the ruling recently in a lawsuit filed by state schools Superintendent Cindy Hill against Gov. Matt Mead and the state Department of Education director.
Arnold ruled that Hill can’t seek the documents as superintendent but can make the request as a private individual.
Bruce Moats, Hill’s attorney, said Thursday that the lawsuit remains alive because the ruling was narrow and Hill also filed her lawsuit as a private individual.
However, Moats said Arnold’s ruling is the first of its kind that he knows of in Wyoming.
Attorney General Peter Michael could not immediately be reached for comment.
Hill filed the lawsuit in her capacity as superintendent and as a private citizen. It seeks correspondence among employees in the department and the governor’s office related to her being replaced last year as head of the agency under a new law that has since been ruled unconstitutional by the Wyoming Supreme Court.
