  • Moskee burn restoration project proposed

    Oct 6, 2022

    Black Hills National Forest officials are proposing to restore the Moskee burn area, located approximately 15 miles southeast of Sundance off Moskee Road. In August, 1936, a wildfire burned approximately 4700 acres on National Forest lands and 2400 acres on private lands near the old town of Moskee.

    Maya Shimizu Harris, Casper Star-Tribune Via Wyoming News Exchange|Oct 6, 2022

    CASPER — After learning of a write-in effort to oust Republican nominee Sen. Ogden Driskill, the Campbell County GOP expressed frustration at Republican candidates “re-inventing themselves” to run in the general election.
