Here is a recap of the top Wyo4News stories sponsored by First Bank of Wyoming

Local News:

**** Sunny today with winds less than 25 mph today and tonight. High today 88. It will be mostly sunny Thursday and Friday, with a very slight chance of showers on Friday. Here is your seven-day forecast here.



**** With the new school start times for Sweetwater County School District #1 students coming up in August, officials are reminding students and parents that bus pickup times and routes may have changed. Parents are asked to check the new District #1 morning and afternoon routes as the bus taking students to school may be different than the bus bringing them home. Also, due to school start times, morning bus seats may be limited, so parents may want to consider driving students to school. However, afternoon routes will be more flexible, so seating should not be a problem. District #1 bus routes and times can be found on their website.

**** The Archie Hay Post 24 American Legion in Rock Springs is collecting clothing and other essential school needs for a giveaway event occurring July 24 and 25 at the Post. New or gently used clothing can be dropped off at the Post on Broadway until 6 p.m. on Monday, July 19.  In past years, the local group Four Moms did this school clothing drive but cannot do it this year, so Post 24 stepped in.
