Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A University of Wyoming official is crediting the school’s scholarship opportunities with the university’s 4.9 percent federal loan default rate, well below the national average of 13 percent. Financial Aid Director Joanna Carter says 42 percent of UW undergraduate students take out federal loans, compared with about two-thirds at most colleges.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Superintendent Cindy Hill will get to argue her case against a law that stripped her of most of her responsibilities in front of the state Supreme Court. The justices agreed to hear Hill’s lawsuit after a Laramie County judge said it raised constitutional issues. Advocates of the law say the change was necessary because Hill was hindering school reform and doing a poor job of running the department.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Attorneys for two Casper women who pleaded no contest to distributing synthetic marijuana that sickened four people in Wyoming last year say their clients didn’t believe they were breaking the law. The attorneys say the women believed they were distributing a legal drug. The illnesses triggered a health alert that eventually led to the discovery of 12 similar cases in five other states.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Coach Dave Christensen says he liked what he saw when Wyoming held its first spring practice in full pads. The Cowboys practiced outside in War Memorial Stadium yesterday after conducting their previous three spring practices in the UW Indoor Practice Facility. Christensen said he was pleased with his team’s focus and performance.
