    City Power Outages

    May 24, 2019--TORRINGTON, Wyo. Power outages this morning were caused by a squirrel.

    Electric Superintendent Dana Youtz, said “There was a dead squirrel on the west side of the Curtis Substation.”

    The squirrel went up the volt line to the substation. A jumper was melted in the Curtis Substation and caused brown-out conditions. When workers arrived at the substation, they noticed that it was only at 3,600 volts, which is exactly half of what it should be. Western Area Power dropped the circuit so that the City could do repair work.
    Even though the radio station is outside of city limits, we operate on city power. The outage caused the radio stations to be off the air this morning. The Curtis Substation operates over half of the city electric service and affected many areas including South Torrington, Western Sugar, Main Street, and clear out to Dinklage Feed Yard.

    May 20, 2019 TORRINGTON, Wyo. (RELEASE)--Eastern Wyoming College staff members have recently received multiple student loan relief scam calls from 1-800-400-7942 to personal cell phones. Voicemails left by the companies include statements such as “I believe we may have called you a while back because you qualify for a reduction in your student loans,” and “You actually have a notification on your federal student loan that you’re not in the lowest possible repayment option. This can be costing you thousands of dollars annually, and tens of thousands over the course of the loan, so it is important that you contact me as soon as possible as this is a time sensitive matter.” Callback numbers given include 844-866-1433 and 858-926-5084, but there are likely additional numbers being provided. Emails and letters are also a common form of communication from companies claiming student loan debt relief.
