YELLOWSTONE-GEYSER TRESPASS

CHEYENNE — Yellowstone National Park officials have ticketed a man caught on video wandering close to Old Faithful geyser, where he risked burns from the boiling-hot water that erupts every hour or so. The man’s actions between eruptions startled a crowd of a couple hundred people at the park’s most famous attraction. At one point, he lay on the ground near the gurgling hole. “A bunch of the crowd thought he was going to jump. We didn’t know what was going to happen,” said Ashley Lemanski of Harbor Beach, Michigan, who shot the video Friday. By Mead Gruver. SENT: 250 words.

ENGLEWOOD — Phillip Lindsay is taking the NFL by storm.
