Food insecurity is taking up more table space in Wyoming. The U-S-D-A has released new statistics on how many families have a tough time providing regular nutritious meals. Close to 13 percent of Wyomingites are in that situation, a percentage that has been creeping up since 2006.

Here's a look at the past week's top stories from Sheridan Media News:

The Johnson County Commissioners, at their meeting earlier this week, approved catering permits for the upcoming Bison Backers' Banquet and NRA Banquet.

The Incident Management Team on the Gilead Fire released the latest information on the fire this morning, and as of 8am, the fire was listed at 5,300 acres and 30% containment. The change in acreage was credited to better mapping.

Wyoming voters will decide in November's general election whether to amend the state constitution to specify that the opportunity to hunt, fish and trap will be preserved.

Governor Matt Mead released a statement Friday saying he thinks the de-listing of the Wyoming gray wolf from the Endangered Species List has been a long time coming.

Sheridan Media recently reported on the effects of this year's record-setting drought and how it may impact wildlife. Game and Fish information Specialist, Warren Mischke, said we may see deer, elk, moose or bears in unusual
areas.

UPDATE- The Gilead Fire Incident Management Team confirmed that the fire has grown to 5,632 acres and is still sitting at 5% containment.
