ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE - In this Jan. 10, 2008 file photograph taken in Jackson, Miss., the Mississippi state flag is framed by the unfinished stair railing on the stage under construction on the south steps of the Capitol. The Confederate symbol on the Mississippi flag could hurt the state's bid to host the Southeastern Conference baseball tournament starting in 2012 because some people find the emblem offensive says Craig Mattox, the SEC assistant commissioner for championships, Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2010.

Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead, center, listens to Jackson town officials during a tour the East Gros Ventre Butte landslide Monday, April 28, 2014, in Jackson, Wyo. Mead says after touring a slow-moving landslide he wants to help local officials defray the cost of the disaster. Efforts to slow the slide by hauling in tons of dirt and rock appear to be working. Ground movement has slowed to just a tenth of an inch per day — much less than a surge April 17 and 18 that sheared one house in two. (AP Photo/Jackson Hole News&Guide, Bradly J. Boner)
