Funeral Mass for Karmen Marincic August 13 (posted 8/10/18)
August 6th, 2018, all six Republican candidates running for Wyoming Governor came to Pinedale for a local forum. The candidates were Bill Dahlin, Foster Friess, Harriet Hageman, Sam Galeotos, Mark Gordon, and Taylor Haynes. The forum was conducted by State Senator Fred Baldwin from Kemmerer.
After the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer, each candidate shared opening remarks, followed by each answering questions, and then each gave their closing remarks. The public was asked to submit questions, and the local party thanked those who submitted questions.
Three candidates for US Senate also spoke - Dave Dodson, Charlie Hardy, and Anthony Van Risseghem.
To raise funds for the Sublette County Republican Party, a quilt donated by Deanne Bradley was auctioned. Foster Friess was the high bidder.
Nathan Winters, running for State Auditor, and Leland Christensen, running for State Treasurer, as well as many of the local candidates also attended.
Five of the Gubernatorial candidates also were in Marbleton at the senior center at 8 am for cinnamon rolls and coffee. Liz Cheney, running for US Representative; Dave Dodson and Charlie Hardy, both running for US Senate also attended. With an estimated 60 local people present, the crowd was given the opportunity to ask several questions of each group of candidates.
Several of the candidates also went to Rendezvous Pointe in Pinedale for lunch later that day, and a Meet & Greet following the noon meal.
The August 6th candidate functions concludes the scheduled Sublette County Republican Party primary election events. For anyone who missed the Governor or County Clerk/County Attorney forums, they were recorded and are available on the public Sublette County Republican Party Approved Facebook page. Sublette GOP encourages citizens to vote in the primary election on or before August 21st.
Thank you to Donna Shafer, Sublette County Republican Party Chairman, for her contribution to this story.
The Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust will host their 17th Annual Roundup Fundraiser & BBQ on Saturday, August 25th. This year’s event will be held at the Sommers Ranch, on the Green River southwest of Pinedale. The funds raised at this event directly support u Land Trust’s conservation and stewardship efforts, and help to educate producers and the public about agriculture and conservation.
Highlights of the evening include live music by country western singer Brenn Hill, food by Pitchfork Fondue, and a free tour of conserved ranches. There will be a live and silent auction to benefit agricultural land conservation. The Annual Roundup fundraiser is a family-friendly event, so bring the youngsters!
The adjacent Sommers Homestead Living History Museum, operated by the Sublette County Historical Society, will stay open late during the evening so event guests can walk over and tour the Homestead. Restored buildings on the historic site include the 100-year-old two story log homestead house, a log ice house, underground root cellar, garage/shop, log bunkhouse, meat house, and log barn. The museum does living history to interpret homestead era history of the early 1900s in the Upper Green River Valley. There are a lot of hands-on living history things to do at the Homestead, so the kids will have a lot of fun milking the cow, collecting chicken eggs, digging for blocks of ice in the ice house, hand washing laundry on scrub boards, roping, doing leather work, playing on the Homestead playground, and more.
Schedule of Events:
3:00 - 4:30 PM: Free tour of the conserved properties
4:00 – 5:00 PM: Cocktail hour with music from Brenn Hill
6:00 PM: Program begins
7:00 PM: Paddle Raiser and Live Auction

Dave Bell and several friends spent a week in the Bridger
Wilderness of the Wind River Mountains from July 28 to
August 3rd. They explored the No Name Lakes area including a
trip to the top of 12,068’ Glover Peak. "The flowers are
incredible this year!" he said. "In spite of some smoke, we
had a really terrific week in our beautiful mountains."
