TOP STORIES ON THE WIRE:

HEALTH CARE FRAUD

CHEYENNE — A federal judge wasn’t influenced Monday by dozens of letters supporting a Wyoming psychologist who admitted to stealing money from Medicaid and ordered him to serve a three-year prison sentence and pay nearly $2.3 million in restitution. U.S. District Judge Alan Johnson on Monday also imposed three years of supervised release after Gibson Condie, of Powell, serves his prison time for one count of health care fraud. By Bob Moen.

TRUMP-ELECTRIC GRID

WASHINGTON — An independent energy agency on Monday rejected a Trump administration plan to bolster coal-fired and nuclear power plants, dealing a blow to President Donald Trump’s efforts to boost the struggling coal industry. The decision by the Republican-controlled Federal Energy Regulatory Commission was unexpected and comes amid repeated promises by Trump to revive coal as the nation’s top power source. The industry has been besieged by multiple bankruptcies and a steady loss of market share as natural gas and renewable energy flourish. By Matthew Daly. SENT: 780 words, photo.
