Crook County Republicans will be the first in the state to weigh in on the presidential election this weekend when precincts caucus at the courthouse in Sundance.

Crook County Committeeman Bruce Brown says registered Republican voters will meet to talk about platforms and resolutions that will be forwarded to the County and State Conventions in March.

Wyoming Governor Matt Mead says it is doubtful that his office will propose legislation for the 2012 session on how the state should handle Juvenile offenders. Some reports have claimed that Wyoming incarcerates more Juveniles than any other state. Governor Mead says his office is trying to verify that information and is closely looking at good practices that are taking place in some of the counties in the state. Mead says it has been a difficult issue to resolve, but he does want to find a solution.
