CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Two military air tankers from Wyoming are in Boise to help fight wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. The planes haven't been called up to fight a particular fire but will be flown throughout the region on an as-needed basis. Often that means heading out on missions as temperatures climb and fire activity picks up during the afternoon.

BURNS, Wyo. (AP) - A Burns man is under arrest following the fatal shooting of his wife. A Sheriff's Office Spokesman says 61-year-old Ron Zimmerman of Burns is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder. Deputies found 51-year-old Teresa Zimmerman dead from a single gunshot wound at the couple's residence in Burns. No charges have been filed in court yet against Ron Zimmerman.

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials are reminding boaters of a program aimed at keeping harmful invasive species like zebra and quagga mussels out of Wyoming waterways. State regulations require that any watercraft brought into Wyoming from March 1 through Nov. 30 be inspected before launching. The mussels colonize in large clusters and ruin infrastructure and destroy fisheries.

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Riverton Regional Airport officials are inviting the public to come see a Lockheed C130 Hercules cargo plane in person. The airport director tells The Riverton Ranger the gigantic plane is scheduled to land between 6:45 and 7 this morning to pick up a National Guard rocket launcher that will be displayed at Frontier Days in Cheyenne.
