Population Of Lost Springs, Wyo., Surges To Four
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne, with news from Lost Springs, Wyoming. The town is getting a new highway sign that reveals a demographic shift. Drivers on Route 20 will notice the town's population seems to have quadrupled - from one person to four. But that's actually not the case. Residents told the�Casper Star-Tribune�the original sign - reading population one - was inaccurate. When it was put up 10 years ago, Lost Springs had a full five people living there.
