A Laramie startup has been selected for a national program designed to help accelerate startups in the carbon-removal industry.

It’s one of 30 companies accepted into the program, and the first in the state.

And a new book by a Casper historian details the worst passenger rail disaster in Wyoming. K2Radio reports Con Trumbull just released “Steam, Steel, and Silence: The Story of the Cole Creek Train Wreck.” He will be signing copies at the Fort Caspar Museum on October 21.

Ivy started as a science news intern in the summer of 2019 and has been hooked on broadcast ever since. Her internship was supported by the Wyoming EPSCoR Summer Science Journalism Internship program. In the spring of 2020, she virtually graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.S. in biology with minors in journalism and business. When she’s not writing for WPR, she enjoys baking, reading, playing with her dog, and caring for her many plants.
