The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum is getting its first permanent space. According to the Jackson Hole News and Guide, the society has rented spaces around town since its 1958 inception.

A Gillette 12-year-old recently gained national fame. The Casper Star Tribune reports a video of Aydin Jeffress hitting a home run during the Little League Mountain Region Tournament earlier this month spread quickly after people noticed he was wearing adult-sized yellow work gloves instead of traditional batting gloves. Jeffress started wearing the work gloves a few weeks earlier during practice because he kept ripping through his batting gloves. Professional athletes and companies have reached out to Jeffress over it.
