LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming has recorded a slight increase in enrollment for the first time in several years with gains in freshmen and transfer students providing good news to the college that has been dealing with funding cuts from the state. A total of 12,397 undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled this fall at the university's campus in Laramie and at its outreach facilities around the state. In the fall of 2016, enrollment was 12,366.

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming regulators are being asked to approve a new application to dispose of wastewater underground for a proposed oil and gas project in Natrona and Fremont counties. Dallas-based Aethon Energy has asked the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission to approve four disposal wells for wastewater as part of recent developments in the long-anticipated Moneta Divide project.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Federal officials say a Wyoming judge must determine whether the city of Casper is liable for a 2015 fire before they can determine how much it can receive in reimbursement. The Casper-Star Tribune reports the 2015 blaze, which originated in a Casper landfill, burned nearly 16 sq. miles of land. The city of Casper asked a judge in 2016 to determine whether it was liable for the fire, but the judge has yet to make the decision and it is unclear when it could come.
