Dutch auctions, Orcutt seep and subdivisions

Council members agreed to sell the plot of land where the old town hall once stood at 210 W. Pine St. through a descending auction. The council directed town attorney Ed Wood to draft a resolution outlining the sale process to present to the council at an upcoming meeting. The resolution will set the official date for the auction. With a descending auction, the auctioneer establishes a high price and then drops the price down in increments until a buyer makes a bid. For example, in a Dutch auction, the seller agrees to set the initial offering at $1 million. The auctioneer then drops the price to $990,000, then $980,000 until a buyer makes a bid, or agrees to the price, at $970,000. In a Dutch auction, once the initial bid is made, the auction is over.

Garden of Beauty, Cooper and LeeAnn Shelton

Although Cooper and LeeAnn Shelton started their gardening adventures in Sublette County only a year ago, they have sparked the curiosity of many travelers going to Jackson with the glowing green lights emanating from their large greenhouse near the Rim Station on Highway 191 in the dark of winter. A large group of Sage and Snow Garden Club members took a field trip to the greenhouse last week and honored the new gardeners with its prestigious Garden of Beauty Award. The 42- by 120-foot greenhouse may be the largest in Sublette County, and although it is fully automated with its computer-controlled lighting, heating, irrigating and fertilizing systems, it is a full-time job for Cooper and LeeAnn to plant, monitor and harvest the hundreds of plants growing indoors. Salad greens and herbs are grown hydroponically in rock wool fiber pods nested in pop-out rails with a circulating water/fertilizer solution.

Fishing for the Fight nets success

The FFF board set three goals when it hosted its inaugural fly-fishing tournament in 2017. First and foremost is to raise funds for the nonprofit’s cause. All proceeds go directly to support the organization’s mission to help “families fighting cancer, people with special needs and children with chronic illness.” The second goal was to host a total of 23 teams competing in the tournament in honor of Sublette County – County 23. The limited entry event is now capped at 23 teams. The final goal consisted of creating a fly-fishing tournament “like no other.” Avid fishermen and women participate in two days of epic, guided fly fishing in spectacular rivers and streams across Sublette County and around LaBarge. In 2023, Fishing for the Fight met and surpassed each of its original objectives set in 2017.

SCCD Corner

Each spring, rivers and streams throughout the county rise as the snow in the mountains begins to melt away. In some years, this rise in the water happens gradually over time; in other years there can be drastic “spikes” that happen suddenly due to certain conditions. Rivers, streams and their tributaries fluctuate greatly in the amount of water that they carry from year to year and season to season. Many factors contribute to this annual spring runoff or “high water” and the timing of this phenomena is affected by many variables such as: how much total snow was received, how much snow-water equivalent was retained in the snow, spring precipitation amounts, wind velocities, increasing daytime temperatures, overnight low temperatures, dam regulation and water diversions, to name a few.
