Around Wyoming, Tuesday, February 20

Wyoming’s Chancey Williams gained another accolade for his music career. K2Radio reports his new song “A Cowboy Who Would” was featured on the national radio show Country Top 40. The show features the most popular songs in country music each week.

Casper Fire-EMS firefighters were called upon to save a dog in the river. Oil City News writes it had somehow made it to an island in the middle of the rapids and was stranded there. They were able to use a specialized blow up boat to get to it. The dog was then sent to Metro Animal Services.

The University of Wyoming Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing’s RN to BSN Program has been recognized as one of the best in the Mountain West region by RNCareers.org. The website looked at things like the program’s flexibility to allow students to continue working while taking courses, quick completion time, and affordability.

And, with Valentine’s Day having just passed, a study by Looper found that Wyoming’s favorite rom-com was Bridgette Jones’s Diary.

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.
