According to a report released by the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Rubio was driving a 1994 Ford Explor- er southbound on the high- way at anunsafe speed on the snow and ice packed roadway and impaired driv- ing is a contributing factor being investigated in this crash. "Mr. Rubio lost control of the Ford while negoti- ating a right hand curve," stated the report.

From Our Files FBI called in to search for Ted Louie 75 YEARS AGO, JAN. 18, 1940 The Lovell Chronicle G.V. Cutler had the honor of throwing the switch which energized the electric line for the Deaver, Frannie, Cowley and Kane sections. As he threw the switch, which en- ergized nearly 80 miles of line, Mr. Cutler remarked that the community had reached a new step in the development of the Big Horn Basin. The people on farms of this vi- cinity have been living under pioneer con- ditions but will now have the conveniences of an urban community. 50 YEARS AGO, JAN. 14, 1965 The Lovell Chronicle A letter to the FBI from a Lovell res- ident triggered a search this week for the body of Ted Louie, salesman who disap- peared in Lovell about 14 years ago.
