The Wyoming Miners' Hospital Board is faced with too little money to deal with a growing numbers of miners registering for its medical program. The more than 7,600 current and former miners currently enrolled are taxing the system to the point that services are having to be suspended. The Miners' Hospital Board is proposing several major changes to eligibility criteria to help save money. For instance, office staff and other workers who have casual or no direct contact with the mining process would be excluded.
Authorities are looking for a man who robbed a bank north of the Cheyenne Regional Airport.

No weapon was shown during the robbery. The suspect is described as 25 to 30 years old, white, 5-foot-9 and about 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a camouflage hat, sunglasses, a black shirt and blue jeans.
