"Right to Counsel' is a new book by Pinedale residents John LaBuda and William Dale Wilkinson, III (Trey).
Book signing for ‘Right to Counsel’ August 17 (posted 7/29/16)
New book by John LaBuda and Trey Wilkinson
Book signing for ‘Right to Counsel’ August 17
New book by John LaBuda and Trey Wilkinson

Pinedale residents John LaBuda and William Dale Wilkinson, III (Trey) have co-authored a new book entitled, "Right to Counsel." The book is a murder mystery based in Pinedale, Wyoming. This is the first book for both men. There will be a book signing at the Pinedale Library on Wednesday, August 17th starting at 5PM.

"This was a project John had in mind for some time and starting a little over two years ago we started working on it together," said Trey. "It's a murder mystery based in Pinedale, Wyoming, with a unique twist at the end."

About the Book
A quiet little mountain town in western Wyoming is awakened when one of the town’s prominent figures is murdered. The wife of Pinedale’s mayor is found dead at a local hotel and questions arise when a handful of characters are questioned and become involved.

Jimmy J, the town drunk, looks good for the murder; however, his attorney believes in innocence until proven guilty.

The mystery adds a unique twist when a pair of lovers are pitted one against the other in the courtroom. The tactical prosecutor, Angela Scott, and highly decorated defense attorney, J.B. Royce, must trust one another as they go to battle in the legal arena.

An incompetent sheriff, an ambitious young reporter, a mysterious businessman, and a talented, yet ethically-challenged lawyer will leave readers wondering who’s right?...who’s wrong?...and who’s the murderer?

About the Authors

John Patrick LaBuda grew up in Berlin, Wisconsin. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. After earning his undergraduate degree, he made his way out west to attend the University of Wyoming College of Law. He graduated in 1992. John began the practice of law as a public defender in Sheridan, Wyoming. He then spent time in Rock Springs, Wyoming, partnering in a business.

In 1997, John moved to Pinedale, Wyoming, where he currently resides, and started LaBuda Law Office, P.C., a general practice law firm. John has served as Secretary-Treasurer for the Wyoming State Bar. He has also volunteered for a number of organizations and events during his time in Pinedale. He is excited to have pursued his ambition to write his first novel. John is married to Mary Anne. They have three children: Thomas, Hannah, and Katherine Beverly.

William Dale Wilkinson, III (Trey) is originally from Rochelle, Illinois, outside of Chicago. He currently lives in Pinedale, Wyoming. Trey graduated from the University of Illinois with a major in Communications and worked in the newspaper industry for a number of years. He currently is a licensed commercial insurance agent and is involved in the purchase and sale of real estate. Trey is married to Jennifer and they just welcomed their first child, a little girl. Trey is also the head basketball coach for Pinedale, Wyoming, the setting for this novel.

Town of Pinedale update (posted 7/23/16)
Water billing, Wind River Mountain Festival
Town of Pinedale
As you may have noticed, no water bills were sent at the beginning of July. This is not a mistake. Water billing will be conducted monthly from here forward. You will receive your next bill at the beginning of August. It will be prorated to get it on track for a monthly billing cycle.

Any metered use you see on your bill is just for information only at this point. Currently, the water bill is still based on the same flat rate it has always been. It is just being divided by 3 to accommodate the new monthly schedule.

Early this fall, we will be transitioning to metered billing. Dates and rates will be published on www.townofpinedale.us as soon as possible. We strongly suggest you check your past and current bill so you know what you are currently consuming at your home or business. This will help you manage in the future. We appreciate your patience while we undergo this change.

This weekend, be sure to stop by the Wind River Mountain Festival at the American Legion Park. This is the first annual celebration of Pinedale receiving the Continental Divide Trail Coalition Community designation. This prestigious designation will be celebrated with educational events, shopping, food, beer games and activities, music, silent auctions, and more. Be sure to check out all the fun this Friday night and Saturday, at the American Legion Park. For details visit: www.greatoutdoorshop.com/windriverfest.

The Pinedale Fine Arts Council teamed up with the Wind River Mountain Festival to bring us Laney Jones and the Spirits, live in concert at the park, here in Pinedale. Laney Jones and the Spirits were recently covered with rave reviews in Rolling Stone Magazine. Local favorite Jason Burton kicks off the show at 5:30 PM. Don’t miss this show. Food and beverages will available on site, and benefit both the festival and the Pinedale Fine Arts Council.

Wildfire smoke health risks (posted 7/23/16)
Sublette County Rural Health Care District
Wildfire smoke can be a significant health risk for those individuals with respiratory and cardiac disease as well as the very young or elderly. With the recent and ongoing wildfires on both the Bridger-Teton and Shoshone National Forests, smoke in Sublette County can be expected. The smoke from both forest and grass fires can be very irritating to the eyes, throat and lungs due to the particles the smoke contains.

Malenda Hoelscher, Health Care Administrator for the RHCD states, "The wildfire smoke can be especially bothersome for our community residents that already have pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Symptoms that are typically associated with wildfire smoke include: difficulty breathing normally, cough with or without mucus, chest discomfort, wheezing and shortness of breathing and exacerbation of already present seasonal allergies."

For most healthy people, low amounts of wildfire smoke are more unpleasant than a health risk. However, David Kappenman, MD warns: "if wildfire smoke is triggering symptoms, especially for those with pre-existing conditions, it is critical that patients should:

Take their medications as prescribed and use a rescue inhaler if one has been prescribed. They should not attempt to take more medication without consulting their medical provider. Consider leaving the area until the air is clear again and/or stay indoors as much as possible with windows closed. Limit or eliminate outdoor exercise until the air clears."

Dr. Kappenman concludes that it is critical if patients are experiencing new or increased symptoms and/or feel they need additional medications or oxygen, they should call the clinic for help in determining the best treatment.

The good news is that while many people may have respiratory symptoms when breathing smoky air, most symptoms are short-lived and resolve as the smoke dissipates.

If you are experiencing new or increased respiratory symptoms as a result of wildfire smoke inhalation, please feel free to call either the Pinedale Medical Clinic at 307-367-4133 or the Marbleton-Big Piney Clinic at 307-276-3306. Please dial 911 for emergencies.
