January 19, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle I 3 Happy ending for shelter dogs The Unexpected Happens WHEN IT DOES, OUR CERTIFIED TECHS WILL BE THERE fOR YOU, BY PATTI CARPENTER Animal control officer Phil Angell was pleased to report this week that all of the dogs mentioned or pic- tured in the article that ap- peared on the front page of last week's Chronicle have been adopted. "I think the article helped raise awareness," said Angell, "and it was nice to find these dogs homes." Angell received many calls about the puppies, and all were adopted out fairly quickly. A truck driver who was passing through town and happened to see the ar- ticle in the paper, adopted one pup. The pup will have a permanent home in West Virginia, but will most like- ly do a lot of traveling with its new owner. Karyn and Jim Felt of Lovell adopted another pup- py. "I saw the picture of the puppy that was in the pa- per," explained Karyn. "By the time we called Phil, it had already been adopted. We were so disappointed until Phil told us that there were two more puppies that were siblings of that one." Karyn sent Jim into the shelter because she was afraid that her "soft heart" would lead her to adopt all of the dogs that were in there. So, sight-unseen she requested the dark col- ored one, which was black and white with a little bit of brown color. They were told the pup PATTI CARPENTER Karyn Felt enjoys a moment with Izzy, the pup she adopted from the shelter in Lovell last week. was a male and decided to name him "Ozzy." After a day of calling him by that name, they realized that he was actually a she and changed her name to "Izzy." "We are so happy with our new puppy," said Karyn. "I think it's all going to work out really well for us. So far, Izzy has been really good and she seems to learn fast." "We're excited that so many were adopted," said Lovell Police Chief Nick Lewis. "The last thing we want is to have to eutha- nize animals. We would rather see them re-united with their owners or in new homes." Lewis noted that it is much easier to reunite lost dogs with their owners if they are wearing a collar and tag as required by local ordinance. "The nice thing about the tag is that we can look up the owner of the dog by looking at the number on the tag and let them know their lost dog has been found," said Lewis. "When the dog is registered and receives a tag from us, we are also keeping a history of the dog's rabies shot in- formation, so, if someone is bitten they don't have to go through painful rabies shots." According to local or- dinance, all dogs must be current on their rabies vac- cination and must wear a collar and special license in town. The license can be purchased at the Police Dept. in Lovell for a nomi- nal fee of $2.50 for dogs that are spayed/neutered and $10 for intact animals. Nearby towns have similar ordinances.

The Lovell Chronicle won multiple awards at the l l3th annual Winter Cori- vention of the Wyoming Press Association over the weekend in Laramie. The paper won 14 indi- vidual awards called Pace- maker Awards, a total that earned the Cl@onible the Sweepstakes Award in the small weekly category. The Chronicle was also judged second best in photographic excellence. Former Chronicle news editor Brad Devereaux won a first place photography award in the feature pho- to cagtegory for his 'lurtle Patrol" photo that showed Shriner Riley Cooke stick- ing out his tongue during the Mustang Days Parade to seek a piece of candy from a boy along the parade route. Devereaux also won second place in the sports photo category for his pho- to of the Rocky Mountain Lady Grizzlies celebrating following their state volley- ball championship win over Wright at the 2010 State Tournament in Casper. Chronicle reporter Pat- ti Carpenter won a honor- able mention photography award in the portrait/per- sonality category for her photo of little Danika Crum- rine sleeping on her grand- father Pat Marchant's lap during the Sept. 17 fund- raiser for the Lovell-Kane Museum. In writing, Chronicle Editor-Publisher David Peck won the top two spots in the spot news writing category, winning a blue ribbon for his Sept. 1 story about the kayaking tragedy that cost the Harder family two young boys on Aug. 29. Judges said the sto- ry had "vivid descriptions and a well-constructed nar- rative" with a "good use of quotes." Peck won second place in the spot news category for his story about a drunk driving striking and killing two Pryor Mountain wild mustangs north of Horse- shoe Bend on July 24. "Can you 'humanize' a story about horses?" judges wrote. "I was hooked after the first two grafs. An ex- cellent example of taking a routine story and making it memorable." Peck also won a blue ribbon in the sports news category for his story about the Lovell Lady Bull- dogs beating Burns to win the 2011 state basketball championship last winter. Judges said the story had a "great lead" and had a "good use of stats and pho- tos to give a reader a com- plete look at the team's ac- complishment." The Chronicle staff also won the top prize for head- line writing among small weeklies. Judges wrote that the Chronicle was a "clear win- ner in this category" and noted that "strong, active headlines draw readers in without cheap clich6s." Devereaux won second place in the general news category for his Jan. 27, 2011, "War on the West" story about possible use of a "Wild Lands" designation by the Bureau of Land Man- agement to set aside public lands from multiple use. Judges called the sto- ry "a good scene-setter for what will be a very contro- versial issue." Chronicle Production Manager Pat Parmer won three second-place awards for graphics work. Parmer won second in open page design for her "back-to-back track titles" page after the Lovell Lady Bulldogs won their second straight state track championship in May. Judges liked the "good, solid graphic" and said the "oval of photos" and the "catchy 'back2back' art make the top half of this page very effective." Parmer won two awards in the merchandise ad cat- egory. She won a second- place award for her "Think it...Print it" ad for Big Horn Engraving. Judges wrote that the ad had a "power- ful use of photographs to visually put 'proof in the ad copy 'pudding,'" add- ing, "That was a nice touch working in the copy about how the business supports the community: a big deal in small-town America." Parmer also won an honorable mention in the same category for her Lovell Drug Valentine's Day fea- turing the words 'Tour Val- entine will be Flying High" above a dog with large ears that appear to be flapping. "On a page filled with cute animals, this little gal screams 'Look at me!' Nice choice of font given the Val- entine's Day theme," judges wrote. "Nice use of white space to set apart the dog pic and thus give it more impact." Finally, Parmer won second place in the "best de- signed ad" category for her "Gone in 90 Minutes" house ad promoting the Chroni- cle's full-page ad sale a year ago. "People can't miss this one," judges wrote. "What a super idea - makes ad- vertisers act. Your switch- board operator must've been flooded with calls! All the details spelled out thor- oughly, and it was smart to list the regular cost of a full page ad so advertisers could see what they'd be saving. Good way to pick up business during a slow time of the year for newspapers." The Chronicle was judged to have the second- best web page among small weeklies, and judges not- ed that the site "provides a nice brisk read of top sto- ries." The Chronicle staffwon honorable mention under the plus business ad idea category for last year's Valentine's Day Pet Lover Contest, and judges wrote, "Boy, I'll bet this one gen- erated plenty of 'table talk' buzz in various kitchens and restaurants when it ran. Way cool twist on the standard "Valentine's Day Contest' theme. The cre- ativity in the raw idea re- ally makes this idea work." Chronicle publisher Da- vid Peck said he is pleased to see members of his staff rewarded for the hard work and long hours they put in every week to produce the newspaper.
