Numerous resources, ecosystems found in local BLM field office

By Karla Pomeroy

WORLAND — Unique is one word to describe the Worland Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management.
Worland Field Manager Becky Good said, “We have a dynamic office. We have every resource that the bureau has,” (all within the boundary of the Worland field office. The Worland field office follows along Highway U.S. 14 and the Greybull River Road.
The field office includes part of Park County, southern Big Horn County and all of Washakie and Hot Springs counties.
Good said, “We manage both surface and mineral estates for our geographic area.” The field office boundary covers 2.2 million acres.
“We, actually, for the field office, have a lot of public lands,” Good said, noting there are some private surface lands with public minerals but the majority in the boundary is public surface with public minerals.
Good described the field office, located at, 101 South 23rd Street in Worland, as “We’re the place the public comes when they want to utilize public lands for permits.” She said they also help educate the public.
“I think our staff does a really great job with outreach to the community to educate about the resources that we have available, what public lands are and what are resources are, and to try and educate the public to be good stewards of the public lands, and to enjoy the public lands. We also try and incorporate the public where we can in projects,” Good said.
She said the Wyoming Boys School helped with some trail management and 4-H works with the BLM on some clean-up projects.
Assistant Field Manager of Resources Mike Phillips said, “We’re not here as a road block to the public. We’re here to facilitate their use of public lands to make it possible so there is multiple use in a responsible way.”
He added, “We’re here to maintain, protect and improve public resources for now and future generations.”
Good and Phillips said another item that makes the Worland Field Office unique is the number of different ecosystems. Phillips said, “We have everything from subalpine to the desert floor.”

Early start for new Ten Sleep School Superintendent

By Ryan Collins
Staff Writer

TEN SLEEP — Ten Sleep’s new district school superintendent Jimmy Phelps will assume his new position on June 1. That’s one month earlier than the standard starting time for a superintendent, but Phelps wanted to get a head start on his new position.
“It’s a gorgeous town. My wife Gloria and I, we both feel blessed to be invited to be a part of the town, the community, the school district,” said Phelps, during a phone interview Monday. “The hiring process was very enjoyable. I got to meet with lots of people during the hiring process. I got to meet the staff, and interview with them. I got to meet with the community, which was very enjoyable to meet the people and listen to what they had to say.”
Phelps brings 25 years of educational experience to the table, but recently he took a break from education. Phelps was the chief operating officer of Cal Western Packaging in Tennessee from 2004 until last year when his family sold the company. His previous position as the superintendent in Green River, he from 2002-2004. Phelps was also the superintendent of a small rural Arkansas school district for six years.
“Ten Sleep is getting ready to face a big construction project, building their new campus. I had several building projects in Arkansas as the superintendent there. I think my experiences there will be valuable for some of the issues Ten Sleep faces,” said Phelps. “The bottom line is to provide a quality education for the students.”
