Drug trade investigation results in two arrests BY RYAN FITZMAURICE Two residents of Cow— ley have been arrested for conspiracy to deliver con— trolled substances. Lynette Frost, 53, and Steven Anthony Frost, 67, have both been charged with two counts of unlaw— ful delivery and two counts of conspiracy to deliv- er controlled substances. All four counts are felony charges. Lovell Police Chief Dan Laffin said the two are known in the department as being involved in the 10— cal drug trade and also al- leged the two are well— known in the community for the same. The arrests are the re— sult of a long-term multiple agency investigation, ac— cordin to Laffin. “I ave had people in my office who I’ve talked to who I’ve known to be in the drug business. Every time, I’ve given them three options,” Laffin said. “The first is quit the lifestyle. The second is get out of my jurisdiction and the third is or I’ll bury you in jail.” Laffin said, regret— tably, some continue in the drug trade until held responsible. “They get comfortable because the investigations take a while,” Laffin said. “But the bear trap will close in on them.” Signs not allowed in highway rights-of-way The Wyoming Depart- ment of Transportation issued a reminder July 6 that advertising signs can- not be placed in the state frights'4of-way. ' " " “With the upcom— ing elections, we’ve seen an increase in the num— ber of signs our mainte- nance crews are having to remove from the right— ofvway fence or from the right—of—way itself,” said WYDOT area maintenance supervisor Brian Pittman of Basin. “Wyoming law and WYDOT policy prohibit placement of signs in those areas, so when our mainte- nance crews come through an area, they pick them up and take them to the area maintenance office. Who— 10—104 ever owns the sign has two weeks to claim the sign, and then we dispose of the sign if it is not claimed.” Wyomin Statute ,24— , fist-ates that-outdoor advertising must meet cer- tain conditions for place— ment. Fines and even jail time can be inflicted on those who don’t comply with the law. “This applies to political candidates, real estate rep— resentatives and residents advertising garage sales. Posting these signs along roadways is illegal with— in the right—of—way of ru— ral highways and inter— states,’ Pittman said. “The signs can become a real problem for motor- ists, both by restricting line of sight and creating a potential collision hazard. We understand signs are placed to help business- es, but rights—of—way must Stay clear of signs fetisafE~ ty reasons.” " Business people and citizens who believe their signs may have been removed by WYDOT crews may contact the nearest WYDOT maintenance of— fice to make arrangements to pick up the signs. “Our concern is always for the safety of the travel— ing public,” Pittman said.

Enzi cosponsors bill to increase g0vernment efficiency Washington, DC. — US. Senator Mike Enzi, R—Wyo., signed on to leg— islation that aims to cre— ate more efficienc by modifying, consoli ating or repealing outdated, du- plicative or unnecessary agency regulations. “Congress should al— ways be looking to stream— line the federal govern— ment so it is more efficient and accountable to hard- working taxpayers,” Enzi said. “Wasting taxpay— er dollars is unacceptable and our nation’s spending crisis makes it even more important to reduce need- less and duplicative gov— ernment programs.” The Unnecessary Agency Regulations Re- duction Act would create a process to eliminate mul— tiple regulations originat— ing from any and all agen- cies in a joint resolution. It would require the Admin— istrator of the Office of In— formation and Regulatory Affairs, on an annual basis, to submit a list of outdat- ed, duplicative or burden— some agency regulations to modify, consolidate or repeal. The list of recom— mended regulations for consolidation, modifica— tion or repeal would be in— cluded in the President’s Unified Agenda. The list would then be transmit— ted to the relevant con— gressional committees to review, and the final list of recommendations would 'be introduced as a joint resolution, which would be eligible for expedited con— sideration in Congress. The legislation is led by US. Senator Rick Scott, R—Fla., and also co- sponsored by US Sena— tors Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Steve Daines, R—Mont., Josh Hawley, R—Miss., Kelly Loeffler, R—Ga., David Per- due, R—Ga., and Thom Til— lis, R—N.C.
