Centennial wrestler Nathan Kraisser has two state championships and a national ranking, but the junior is still looking for his first Mount Mat Madness title. On Friday, he decided to take a difficult route to get it, weighing in for the 119-pound class instead of the 125-pound class he has wrestled in for most of the season. Kraisser, ranked No. 15 nationally by Intermat at 125 pounds, chose the lighter class for an opportunity to wrestle Wyoming Seminary's Dom Malone, who is ranked seventh nationally and has beaten him here twice — the first time in the final and last year in the semifinals.

Playing in their first American Indoor Football Association title game, the Baltimore Mariners made every attempt Sunday to link their newfound success to the city's storied football past, even bringing in Colts Hall of Famer Lenny Moore to serve as honorary captain. By the end of AIFA Bowl IV, it was clear to the announced 6,075 in attendance at 1st Mariner Arena that the indoor upstart had found its niche. Quarterback E.J. Nemeth fired three second-half touchdown passes, including a pair to Aaron Yarbough, as the Mariners rallied from an early 16-point deficit for a 57-42 win over the Wyoming Cavalry to complete the first perfect season in the brief history of the AIFA, the third largest of the nation's arena football leagues in terms of size.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- He dropped by the office of his one-time intern, who is now speaker of the Wyoming House of Representatives, to chat. He shook hands with old friends and admirers as he worked his way down the aisle of the state Capitol. His wife teared up when the crowd gave him a standing ovation as he left the chamber. Vice President Dick Cheney came back to Wyoming yesterday, wrapping himself in the warm embrace of this sub-zero city where he started his political career. By his own account, it was a relief after the pummeling he took for accidentally shooting a fellow hunter last weekend.

Warned last fall that it was likely he would be charged with federal tax evasion, Thomas A. Korjack didn't hang around to see what would happen, investigators said yesterday. A nuclear physicist at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Korjack, 49, took out a $280,000 mortgage on his Churchville home, liquidated his investments and started missing work for days at a time, according to a federal affidavit. A week ago, Internal Revenue Service detectives caught Korjack in Wyoming, where he was living under an assumed name.

Thank you for the "Our View" piece on not complaining about the heat ("Heat: stop griping, start describing," July 7). Five years ago my family and I moved to Wyoming from Maryland. Wyoming has four seasons--Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter and what they call Summer. The only thing that gets me through is knowing I can come spend a good chunk of my summer in Maryland, where I have vowed to never complain about it being too hot! When I am here and the temps top the 90's, I go outside and soak up all the heat and humidity, so next May when it's 30 degrees and snowing, I might avoid going totally insane!

RAWLINS, Wyo. - Wildlife officials are combing the snow-covered high plains here for clues to explain the mysterious deaths of 280 elk, more than 60 percent of a herd that inhabits the southern edge of Wyoming's Red Desert. State Game and Fish officials say they cannot recall an elk die-off of this magnitude unrelated to harsh winter weather. The stricken elk, wintering in a broad swale, were found beginning a few weeks ago, dying of dehydration or starvation. "There are a lot of strange things about this," said Dr. David Barber, an epidemiologist for Wyoming's Health Department.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. - In 1978, Dick Cheney was crisscrossing Wyoming's grand vistas in search of votes. He was campaigning to become Wyoming's sole member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and his crisp style reflected his most recent experience in Washington, D.C., as chief of staff to President Gerald Ford. With Sens. Alan K. Simpson and Malcolm Wallop, Cheney helped turn Wyoming into a Republican bastion. And many of the issues that shaped their campaigns in the 1970s and 1980s remain current in 2000.
