CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A slow-moving landslide in Jackson sped up significantly yesterday, splitting a house in two, causing an uplift in a road and a parking lot, and threatening to destroy unoccupied homes and businesses. A geologist said at a town meeting yesterday that the 100-foot-high hillside is unlikely to collapse suddenly like the deadly March 22 landslide in Oso, Wash.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Cindy Hill says she intends to be back on the job Monday morning running the Wyoming Department of Education after a judge's ruling that puts to rest her bitter legal battle to regain the office. The order codified a Wyoming Supreme Court finding that the bulk of a state law that stripped most duties from the state superintendent of public instruction was unconstitutional.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities say a Laramie County woman shot a pit bull that attacked her golden retriever. The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports that Yvette Dalley was walking her dog on Thursday when two pit bulls attacked it. The paper reports Dalley wounded one of the pit bulls with a handgun. It later died of its injuries, and the uninjured pit bull was euthanized.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A federal judge has allowed the American Civil Liberties Union to file a brief in a lawsuit filed by Roman Catholic organizations in Wyoming. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne and other organizations are trying to block a birth-control coverage requirement in the federal health care overhaul. The ACLU argues the federal requirements don't violate religious rights.
