16 I The Lovell Chronicle I January 1, 2015 Speech team makes good showing at Cody competition BY PATFI CARPENTER Speech and debate team members travelled to their first competition of the sea- son this week, which took place in Cody on Dec. 19-20. The team consists of seven members from Lovell High School and five from Rocky Mountain High School and one homeschooled student who will travel to competi- tions as a team throughout the state. Coach Deb Fink said she is pleased to see how well some of her Students fared at the competition, es- pecially those who are new to the speech and debate team and were competing for the very first time. Around 150 students were in the competition from nine schools. Fink said that is fewer schools than normal because some schools had already start- ed their holiday break. She added that the meet in Cody is a novice meet, which was good for the newer mem- bers and a great warm-up for the more experienced members. Due to a lack of teams, the novice and varsity duets were judged as one catego- ry. The teams of Ani Baird and Mikayla Thompson and Miguel Gurrola and Colton Wardell placed third. The novices (Baird and Gurrola) were also "recognized" for their work. Fink said she was es- pecially pleased with some PATTI CARPENTER Colton Wardell (left) and Miguel Gurrola rehearse the week before last in preparation for a competition this weekend in Cody. of the novice members who did quite well in their com- petitions, like Baird, who took third place in novice poetry, Xavier Allen who placed in the top two thirds of the novice poetry catego- ry and also placed in the top third of novice drama, miss- ing the finals by only one point and Taylor Woodford, who also placed in the top two thirds of the novice po- etry class. In the varsity division, Cole Moncur took fourth in poetry and first in drama. Fink was not surprised by his success, since Moncur of- ten places at competitions. Alecx Christensen won two rounds and lost two rounds in the very chal- lenging Lincoln/Douglas debate. Fink said she was very impressed and said this kind of placing is ex- cellent for a first-time cam- petitor. He also made it into the top two-thirds of the extemporaneous speaking competition. Next up, the team will travel to Powell for a highly competitive meet held an- nually at Northwest Col- lege Jan. 9 - 10. "I think they learned a lot at the competition in Cody and I think they will do well at Northwest," said Fink. Judges needed for Jan. 9 and 10 high school forensics tournament More than 300 students from nearly 15 schools will be debating, persuading and entertaining their au- diences at the 44th annual Trapper Rendezvous Foren- sics Tournament for Wyo- ming high schools Friday and Saturday, Jan. 9 and 10, at Northwest College. Because the tourna- ment is so large, 50 judges are needed every round to score all the events, which include humorous, poetry, dramatic and duet inter- pretation, extemporaneous speaking, oratory and three forms of debate. To help people feel more comfortable with judging, NWC Forensics coaches of- fer a workshop at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6, in the Yel- lowstone Building, Room 208. For an individual ap- pointment, contact Bob Becker at 307-754-6118. Becker, one of the NWC forensics coaches, said some people are hesi- tant to judge because they don't think they're quali- fied but find it quite simple and enjoyable when they do it. The primary compo- nent of judging individu- al events is simply to rank performances from best to worst. Commission pulls public lands position BY KARLA POMEROY The Big Horn County commissioners will not be con- sidering the public lands position at this time. Chairman Jerry Ewen announced Monday that they would not proceed with the position. "It's become obvious it's not going to work," he said. The commissioners had approved a six-month budget and a job description at the Dec. 2 meeting, with the inten- tion of hiring outgoing commissioner Keith Grant to the position at the Jan. 6 meeting. The commissioners then set up a public comment period at that meeting. Ewen said that public comment period has been can- celled since they will be pulling the item off the agenda. He said the new commission will take some time to consid- er how best to approach working with the various federal agencies the county deals with on a regular basis. Grant had been the county's liaison for the federal agencies, attending meetings as needed. At the Dec. 4 meeting, Ewen said, "One of our primary interests is to retain Keith's (Grant) knowledge and expe- rience and to have him continue as an advisor to the coun- ty with federal lands." He said Grant has tremendous institutional knowl- edge that would be valuable, particularly as they finish the BLM's Resource Management Plan. The federal lands policy office is recommended in the county master plan adopted in 2010. Highway Patrol announces change in approach Methods for gauging the performance of Wy- oming Highway Patrol troopers will change in 2015, Patrol Administra- tor Col. John Butler an- nounced recently. The recent mandate re- quiring a specified number of traffic stops made and ci- tations issued by any indi- vidual trooper will no longer be used as a performance measurement during job evaluations. The standards were included by the Patrol as a component of the State of Wyoming's performance appraisal system. "We understand that our policy of setting forth the expected numbers of traffic stops and citations during a certain period of time is perceived by some as constituting a quota sys- tem," Col. Butler said. "Al- though we in the Patrol have never considered it as such, we acknowledge that the perception exists and that's why we are taking steps to address the issue. "Regardless of how our management tailors the job evaluation process, the Wyoming Highway Patrol's overriding goal will contin- ue to be the vigorous en- forcement of traffic laws which directly impact high- way safety. We are commit- ted to curbing hazardous driving behaviors whenev- er it is encountered, with emphasis on impaired driv- ing, speeding, distracted driving and failure to wear seat belts. "It has always been our directive to troopers when they witness a violation of any traffic law, they should initiate a stop. Troopers do have discretion wheth- er that stop will result in a citation or a warning. But when a seat-belt violation is discovered during a stop, it is our expectation that a citation will be written for that particular offense." For Rent Far Rent I.
