The confer- ence brought together members of the Ranch A Restoration Founda- tion Board and government om- clals from Cheyenne. Those par- ticipating from Cheyenne were Marlene Slmons, Representative from Crook/Weston and the president of the Foundation Board; Cynthia Loomis, from the governor's office; Art Reese, rep- resenting Wyoming Game & Fish; and John T. Keck, State Historical Preservation Office, Department of Commerce. Joe Baron, Crook County Attor- ney, attended the meeting and said that they discussed a number of things. He said that the federal government will be turning the deeds for Ranch A over to the state about April l, 1997. In the mean- time, Wyoming officials are trying to get the federal government to provide information on the where- abouts of Items taken from Ranch A to aid in their return. They are also trying to get something done about the condition of the prop- erty. He noted that the state does not havd any money to put into repairs or maintenance. i Negotiations are going on now to Set up a three-year lease for the Babcock House with the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Baron said that they have been using it for a geology field school for student. The School of Mines is currently looking as using Paha Sapa, the former Girl Scout camp. They would like to find renters for the four apartments at Ranch A, but Baron says it Is difficult with the cold weather. Baron also discussed some of the aspects of the video conferenclng. At present It Is set up In the base- ment of the courthouse In the community room. The monitor Is large and easily seen from quite a distance. It utilizes two-way audio and video, allowing conversations to be carried out at the same time the speakers can see each other. Baron wasn't quite sure what the sound system was but said that they could hear clearly throughout the conference. Work will soon begin on a new building to house the Public Health office and the Mental Health office. When that happens, Baron said that the space presently occupied by Mental Health would be used for the video-conferencing. Slmons was quite excited about the conference and talked about some of the ways the equipment can be used. Until now anyone wanting to get involved in a video conference had to travel to another town. Baron agreed that the equipment is available for a variety of uses but added that it needs a government entity to back any use. He said that educational users have first prior- ity; government uses, second; and private uses, which must have a government sponsor, are third. Meetings such as the annual meeting of Powder River Energy could fall in this last category. Anyone wanting to use it needs to contact Cheyenne to schedule that use. The system works from phone circuitry and mlcro-wave, utilizing a dedicated line which belongs to the state. According to Baron it is known as a TI circuit. In addition to the monitor, other equipment with It Is a microphone and cam- era. Crook County Commissioners were notified last week that the request they submitted to the Farm Loan Board for $427.570 was ap- proved for the full amount. This funding will be used to construct a new building to house Crook County Public Health and North- em Wyoming Mental Health at the comer of 5th and Main Street (the parking lot of the present library). Crook County was also notified in July, 1996 that they received $213,000 from the Community Development Block Grant to assist with the construction of this facility. These are grants rather than loans and the county will not have to repay them. warns m Lion's Club pool winners named The Sheriff.s trace would like to After making a pledge on the warn the public about a phonephone, the solicitor then send an The winners of the Lion's Club solicitation scheme that is pres- undatedletterslgnedbyapresldent Super Bowl pool board were an- ently taking place.
