Good morning, and welcome to Cowboy State Daily radio news for Saturday, September 16, 2023! 

Today’s top stories:

32 people and organizations are suing the U.S. Forest Service, saying the department didn’t shut down a man-made fire during the dry windy days of September 2018 in time to spare their homes and lands from the Roosevelt Fire. 

Health care is an industry that uses a lot of energy, and hospitals in Wyoming will feel the pinch should the Wyoming Public Service Commission approve Rocky Mountain Power’s requested 30% rate hike. 

The Wyoming Democratic Party wants to increase the state’s $5.15 per hour minimum wage – which hasn’t been updated since 2001.

Accused of trying to kill his own mother and detaining his girlfriend by shooting out her tires, a Jackson man is facing life in prison.

It's the time of year when some regions of Wyoming start flirting with freezing, but according to Meteorologist Don Day, the first snow of the season is still weeks away.

And a young black bear with a sweet tooth has earned the nickname “Winnie the Pooh.”
