A controversial bill that would have made Wyoming's abortion law the most restrictive in the nation was killed by a House committee in Cheyenne. Members of the Judiciary Committee, voting 5 to 4 against the bill, said that the proposal was too much, too soon. As drafted, the Human Life Protection Act would have outlawed abortions except when a mother's health was in jeopardy, or in cases of rape or incest.

The grass-roots peace movement has gone high-tech with computer networks that link activists worldwide as they organize against war in the Persian Gulf, according to organizers of a network based in San Francisco. The activists have not stopped handing out leaflets to win followers, but many are typing summaries of their activities on personal computers and shipping the reports directly to PeaceNet, a network that claims 8,000 subscribers in 50 countries.

"I've got an armlock on this place," Thyra Thomson, 68, said as she stood in front of Wyoming's 1888 gold-domed Capitol. She laughed. But she meant it. In her 23rd year as secretary of state, Thomson has served in the state House longer than any other elected official in Wyoming's history. Secretary of state in Wyoming is the second highest political office, equivalent to lieutenant governor. There is no lieutenant governor here.

A gay University of Wyoming student was brutally beaten, burned and left tied to a wooden ranch fence like a scarecrow, with grave injuries including a smashed skull, authorities said. Four people have been arrested. A passerby found the victim, Matthew Shepard, 22, near death half a day after the attack. He was unconscious and his skull had been smashed with a handgun. He also appeared to have suffered burns on his body and cuts on his head and face.
