Community Bak Pak Program a success (posted 4/4/2020)
Helping to get food to hungry kids
Here is a message from JJ Huntley & the Community Bak Pak Program Volunteer Team:
On March 26th, the Community Bak Pak Program put out the "call" that more backpacks (new or used) were needed to continue providing food to kids who might not otherwise have enough to eat on the weekends.
Within a week, well over 50 backpacks were donated. Along with those that will be returned from the kids each week, we now have plenty of backpacks to easily finish up this school year.
The Bak Pak Program Volunteers are deeply grateful for this generous and timely response to the urgent need.
THANK YOU Everyone who donated. You took ACTION to ensure our kids are fed!
Working to Eliminate Food Insecurity for our Youth,
JJ Huntley & the Community Bak Pak Program Volunteer Team

This is the last grooming of the spring season
Mike Looney, Groomer, Sublette County Recreation Board
Friday, April 3, 2020, 8:00AM report:
Most trails above have been groomed this morning. About 1 inch of new snow from yesterday. Chilly, -3F degrees at the Nordic Equipment Building and -10F at the Warming Hut. Use caution on the downhills, may encounter some icy spots. As the week progresses due to warming afternoon temperatures and cold mornings, the crust skiing should improve. This will be the last grooming for the season. Thanks to all the folks who use the trails and especially the ones who pick up after their pets.

KC Lehr, Sheriff, Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
PINEDALE, WYOMING – April 3rd, 2020 - Yesterday afternoon around 2:30pm, residents of the Split Diamond Subdivision in Pinedale may have seen a large law enforcement presence in the neighborhood. I want to assure everyone that your neighborhood is safe and that everyone is okay.
On Wednesday April 2nd, Sublette County Sheriff’s Office dispatch received a call from a resident of the Split Diamond Subdivision. That resident was not at home, but their Ring doorbell just recorded a person leaving their front porch with a package in tow.
After speaking with several neighboring residents, we were able to contact the individual caught on camera. It turned out that it was a very helpful neighbor delivering miss-sorted mail to the residence. They just happened to have their mail and a box in their hands at the time.
Thank you to all of those residents that assisted the Sheriff’s Office. You have a very tight-knit neighborhood that looks out for one another.

SCSD 1 further expands Free Meals Program (posted 4/2/2020)
Sublette County School District #1
Sublette County School District #1 (SCSD 1) recently announced that it was expanding its free meals program to include all students in our school district.
Today SCSD 1 is announcing that it will further expand its free meal program to include any child living in our school district, 18 years of age and under .
This service will be available beginning April 8th and the district is working on a plan to expand the delivery of meals to areas outside of Pinedale. More information will follow on distribution locations and times outside of Pinedale as it becomes available.
To join the program, please fill out the application on the district website. Families may also fill out a paper application at Pinedale Middle School during our current meal distribution times of 7:45 am – 9:00 am and 5:15 pm – 6:15 pm.
All applications are confidential and will be protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
SCSD 1 would like to encourage ALL families to participate in this program. While we know that the need for each family is different, we also view this as a way to support our community on a larger scale. This program might not be a necessity for some families, however, the money saved by utilizing the program could be reinvested elsewhere in our community for businesses who may desperately need it.
SCSD 1 is committed to being a good community partner during these challenging times. We hope you will consider joining us in this effort by making use of this program.

Letter from TOP Mayor to Pinedale residents (posted 4/2/2020)
Town of Pinedale
April 1st, 2020
Residents of Pinedale:
Like you, we are very concerned about the impact that COVID-19 is having upon our residents – jobs, families, day-to-day living, etc. As we see on the news, there is a growing number of funding sources being made available, but there is confusion on who can apply and how. Therefore, we wanted to put together a quick list (that we will continue to update) to help our community to understand what is available to them. Further, we have begun putting together a team of volunteers who are willing to work one-on-one with you if you need additional help with these resources.
In this time of crisis, know that the Town of Pinedale stands with you and will help however we can. If there are other sources of funding that you are aware of, or other means by which the Town can legally help within our own constraints, please do not hesitate to contact either me or the Town Clerk.

Dog rescued from Fremont Lake (posted 4/2/2020)
On Tuesday, March 31st, a dog was rescued after falling through the ice into Fremont Lake.
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
PINEDALE, WYOMING –April 2nd, 2020 - Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at approximately 1:15pm, Sublette County Dispatch received a call of a dog who had fallen through the ice into Fremont Lake just outside of Pinedale. Sublette County Deputies, Wyoming Highway Patrol and Tip Top Search and Rescue responded immediately to assist.
Once on scene responders found the dog approximately 40 yards off shore and the dog holding onto the edge of the ice in a hole approximately 10 foot across. According to the reporting party, the dog had been in the water approximately 30 minutes. Deputy Morgan approached the dog with caution and was able to crawl across the ice to the dog. He was then able to successfully pull the dog safely out of the water without incident. The dog was very happy to be free from the cold water and was returned to its owner who was anxiously awaiting on shore.

Help for Pinedale businesses (posted 4/1/2020)
Town of Pinedale
Pinedale businesses: Like you, we are very concerned about the impact that COVID-19 is having upon our local businesses. As we see on the news, there is a growing number of funding sources being made available, but there is confusion on who can apply and how. Therefore, we wanted to put together a quick matrix (that we will continue to update) to help each business understand what is available to them. Further, we have begun putting together a team of volunteers who are willing to work one-on-one with you if you need additional help with these resources.
We also encourage you to subscribe to email updates from the SBA via www.sba.gov/updates and check Wyoming’s Department of Workforce Services site frequently at www.wyomingworkforce.org.
Lastly, Main Street Pinedale has opened their Façade Grant fund for applications if there are businesses who would like to take advantage of this down time to make physical improvements to their buildings. These funds require a match, however, there are also funds available for that as well. In this time of crisis, know that the Town of Pinedale stands with you and will help however we can. If there are other sources of funding that you are aware of, or other means by which the Town can legally help within our own constraints, please do not hesitate to contact either me or the Town Clerk.
Matt W. Murdock, Mayor Maureen Rudnick, Town Clerk
CARES Overview The measure creates a $349 billion program for the SBA to offer unique loans to small businesses (500 or fewer employees). The loan amount is based on 250% of the borrower’s average monthly payroll cost for the preceding year (provisions for seasonal employers are included), up to $10 million. Collateral requirements are waived, and the "credit elsewhere" requirements (which have slowed down the process) have been waived as well. The loan is forgiven if used for payroll costs, mortgage interest, or rent/utilities. * An exception was made to the small business requirement for restaurants and hotels. The 500-employee number is based on the number of employees at each physical location. So, a restaurant or lodging property with 600 employees over five restaurants or hotels would qualify for these loans. This ensures that a number of larger independent restaurants, franchise owners and lodging properties can participate.

Have fun!

Shoppers: Help ‘Flatten the Curve’ (posted 3/31/2020)
Sublette COVID-19 Response Group
Sublette County, help us "Flatten that curve" while shopping for supplies with these four helpful tips if you’re at Ridley's, Burney's, Dollar Store, OBO's or similar stores:
1. Limit the number of shoppers in the store at one time
2. Physical Distancing keep 6 feet of distance while in line
3. Please only 1 one shopper per family in the store if possible
4. Don't shop every day, buy enough to last a week if possible at a time and don't hoard supplies.

If sick, stay home, but call the Clinics if you have concerns or questions
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
This whole time during COVID-19 we have encouraged the public to stay home if they are feeling ill....
However, if you are sick and having medical concerns and really not feeling very well, please still call the clinics. Providers are still available at both clinics and can even see patients via telehealth. We don't want people staying home getting sicker and not seeking out medical treatments.
Clinic staff are here for you even if your medical concern is not COVID-19 related.
