The Wyoming jinx continued for No. 5 Utah. Gregg Sawyer hit two free throws and Justin French made a three-point play in the final 1:26 as Wyoming upset the visting Runnin' Utes, 62-56, last night. The Utes have not won at Wyoming since 1993 - when NBA rookie Keith Van Horn was a freshman. Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt said it was nothing magical, just patience. "We played one of the finest teams in the country tonight. They are extremely well coached," Shyatt said.

An agonizingly long wait for Haddon Heights football star Derek Armah turned out to be worth it in the end. Armah has signed a letter of intent with the University of Wyoming, a Division I-A team that competes in the Western Athletic Conference, Heights coach Al Mailahn said. Armah, an elusive 5-foot-11 185-pounder, played quarterback and defensive back and returned kicks for the Garnet last season. He led Heights to a 9-2 record and a share of the Colonial Conference title.

My home is below granite cliffs, my bed is pine needles, my roof a sky of tangerine and red. As September comes to Wyoming, the sandhill cranes that wade the shallow ponds of this moraine grow restless as night temperatures dip into the 30s. Already the aspen forest's wavering edge is shot through with yellow, and beyond, in a huge meadow, a herd of pronghorn antelope, led by a mother and her twins, start running. Who knows why? Then I see: A black bear has rambled out from beyond the curtain of trees.

University of Wyoming officials began an investigation yesterday into allegations that former Cowboys forward Fennis Dembo accepted cash payments before his senior season. The allegations, published yesterday in the Rocky Mountain News, were attributed to the high school coach of a Colorado recruit who visited Wyoming last fall. Wyoming athletic director Paul Roach said that he had notified the NCAA's compliance division of the allegations. The article in the Denver newspaper alleged that Dembo, now with the Detroit Pistons, was seen receiving an undetermined amount of cash on two occasions.

In Wyoming, choreographer Terry Beck renders the most elusive of subjects in the best way possible, as metaphor. This theater piece, which the Terry Beck Troupe premiered last night at the MTI Tabernacle Theater, is a haunting flow of images about the passage of time and the way people of different ages respond to it and each other. Inspired by the idea of the hourglass, the central metaphor in Wyoming is sand - sand trickling out of a hand, falling almost silently from sandbags suspended from the ceiling, or in one episode careening from a bag with such force you fear for the people standing near it. The falling sand makes beautiful sounds.

Fennis Dembo scored a career-high 41 points to lead Wyoming to a 78-68 upset of UCLA in the NCAA West Region second round yesterday in Salt Lake City. The Cowboys (24-9) took control in the final 5 minutes of the game to earn a shot at No. 1-ranked Nevada-Las Vegas on Friday at the West Region semifinals in Seattle. UCLA (25-7) took the lead early in the first half and held it, but never by more than eight points, until Wyoming's surge. Wyoming outscored the Bruins 18-4 over the final 6 1/2 minutes.

Loyola-Marymount might have opened some eyes in the West Regional yesterday, but for the Lions it was business as usual. The Lions, coached by former La Salle coach Paul Westhead and fueled by ex- Dobbins stars Bo Kimble and Hank Gathers, outlasted Wyoming, 119-115, in an NCAA first-round game that was the highest-scoring matchup in tournament history. Loyola (28-3) thus advances to a second-round game tomorrow against North Carolina, which defeated North Texas State. In the other second-round game, Florida, which defeated St. John's, will meet Michigan, which trimmed Boise State.

Andre Emmett scored 27 points and Kasib Powell added 17 and seven assists to help Texas Tech defeat Wyoming, 90-84, yesterday in Lubbock, Texas. The win extended Tech's win streak to eight heading into Big Twelve Conference play. Tech (11-1) nearly squandered an 18-point halftime lead. Wyoming's defense toughened and the Red Raiders' shooting turned cold during a 17-4 Cowboys run early in the second half. Wyoming (9-4) pulled within four inside the final minute. Tech, however, made 6 of 8 free throws in the final 30 seconds to hold off the Cowboys.

Perhaps Stephen Jimenez never saw the 1962 western The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance , with John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. He may be unfamiliar with the film's moral: "This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend. " Back in 2000, when Jimenez first went to Laramie, Wyo., it was to research a made-for-TV screenplay based on the notorious murder of Matthew Shepard. Shepard, a gay 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was tied to a fence and viciously pistol-whipped in 1998.

Liz Cheney to run in Wyo. CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter Liz Cheney will run against Wyoming's senior U.S. senator in next year's Republican primary, her campaign said Tuesday. Liz Cheney, 46, is the elder of Dick Cheney's two daughters. Her announcement is a political challenge unlike anything Wyoming has seen for years, maybe decades. Republicans in the state rarely challenge incumbents of their own party in national office. All three members of the state's congressional delegation and all statewide elected officials are Republican.

James "Randy" Udall, 61 - brother of Sen. Mark Udall (D., Colo.) - was found dead in the Wyoming wilderness Wednesday after taking a long backcountry hike from which he never returned. Foul play was not suspected, but an autopsy was planned. Mr. Udall, an environmentalist and energy-efficiency, had told his family about his plans to take an extended hike through an obscure route in the Wind River Mountains of western Wyoming, which his family said was his "favorite mountain range in the world.

DENVER - Storms brought a tornado and 2-inch hail to Wyoming on Thursday, a day after thunderstorms pummeled parts of Wyoming and Colorado with golf-ball-size hail and heavy rain. Three homes were heavily damaged by the tornado Thursday, and 10 to 12 other structures also have damage, said Kelly Ruiz of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security.

Growing up, Craig Johnson had the kind of romantic aspirations we all do. He wanted to be a cowboy. And he wanted to be a writer. Most of us end up forfeiting these types of daydreams to life's harsher demands. Johnson held onto his. Both of them. Even found a way to make them sustain each other. On Friday, he'll be in West Chester to promote the release of his seventh Walt Longmire mystery, Hell Is Empty, in paperback, and the release of the eighth, As the Crow Flies, in hardcover.

Three years before a Wyoming billionaire decided that the city of Chester could use a dental clinic, the first-floor room in the Frederick Douglass Christian School was merely a concrete shell. It had been used as a pantry, office, and storage space. But on May 4, the renovated room will open as the Grace Dental Clinic, with state-of-the-art equipment and a volunteer staff that will charge just $10 per visit. "We need this in this city," said Kim Strand, a stay-at-home mother from Chester.

WYOMING, N.Y. - To many travelers "of a certain age," the pinnacle of summer vacation fun could be found at places such as Gaslight Village in Lake George, N.Y., with its "old-timey" feel, rides from bygone days, and vaudeville entertainment. Lake George's Gaslight Village closed in 1989. But for a little something different, something that carries a definite whiff of nostalgia, head to western New York where another Gaslight Village is located - a real one. Wyoming, a charming little village of 500 residents, is in the county of the same name 50 miles southeast of Rochester.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Chris Coyer was the forgotten one. Perhaps it was because the Temple quarterback suffered a game-ending injury to his throwing shoulder (left) in the regular-season finale. Maybe it was because Wyoming was focused on trying to stop tailbacks Bernard Pierce and Matt Brown. Whatever the reason, the Cowboys didn't appear to have a suitable game plan for Coyer. And it hurt them in Saturday's New Mexico Bowl at University Stadium. "That quarterback made some great decisions," Wyoming linebacker Brian Hendricks said after the Owls' 37-15 victory.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The New Mexico Bowl had just ended, and Temple emotion was flooding the field like a hurricane off the Atlantic. This one was for the Owls teams of the past and for the ones in the future. This was for their fans who believed, and their critics who didn't. Temple can now sit at the head table with respectable programs. Anyone who disagrees has very little argument. Not after the Owls defeated Wyoming, 37-15, Saturday afternoon at University Stadium.
