Moody out, Carrizales in BY JENNIFER BUTLER Board Chairman Matty Moody and Board Secretary Karen Sylvester welcomed newly appointed fair board members Casey Sorenson, Felix Carrizales and Tim Flitner, along with the new fair manager Deb Schnitzmeier, at the fair board meeting Monday, Jan. 9. Before the annual reorganization of the board (election of officers), Moody read a statement regarding her year as chairman. She said many members of the community have said they would like to see the fair return to how it was 30 years ago, but she added that it is impossible because of the changing of times. But she believes that the fair can and should be enjoyable for all community members. She then thanked the service offered by previous board members Mitch Shelhamer, William Bridges and Alfred An- derson. She added the board positions are purely volunteer and serve in what is often a "thankless job." She added dur- ing the past year the board, along with many members of the community, had tried their hardest and dedicated time to creating a successful fair. Moody said that now with new board members and a new fair superintendent the focus needs to be placed on the upcoming fair and establishing trust and teamwork among the new members. Moody then nominated Carrizales to replace her as the chairman. Sylvester then nominated Flitner as the vice- chairman, Moody nominated Sorenson as the treasurer and Flitner nominated Moody as the secretary. All nominations were approved by the board. The new board did not hesitate to start discussing the pressing issue the fair board has been facing. According to Moody the grant application to the Daniels Fund was sub- mitted on Thursday, Jan. 5, as required. The grant is to match funds for the consensus block grant to construct an all-purpose building on the fairgrounds. Big Horn County Maintenance Supervisor Fred Werner suggested the board review the plans that were submitted and create a back-up plan in case the grant was not awarded. According to Wer- ner, if the grant is not met the consensus block grant fund- ing could be used for critical maintenance issues, such as the electricity. The board agreed to review the plans for the all-purpose building and to meet with Big Horn County Grant Writer Maria Eastman to review all possible grants the fair could be awarded. Flitner said, "To my understanding the money is there. We just need to go out and get it." OTHER BUSINESS In other business Monday, the board moved to keep the premium bank account with Security State Bank. The board approved using the Basin Post Office, Fair- grounds Office and the Basin Republican Rustler as their sources for public release of information. The board set the meeting schedule for the year as the second Monday of the month at 7 p.m. They agreed to elimi- nate the time change during the summer months. The board agreed to hold a contest for this year's Big Horn County Fair theme. Moody said all submissions can be sent to bhfair@tctwest.net or mailed to the Fair Board Of- rice. Moody added there are no regulations for the contest. Wiley to retire, interim plans discussed BY KARLA POMEROY After 26 years, Big Horn County Public Health Nurse Sue Wiley will be saying goodbye next month as she retires. Wiley told the commis- sioners last week, "I will kind of miss it. I always said I don't want to stay home and clean, but I have grandkids to chase and oth- er family things to do." She came to the com- missioners with State Nurse Supervisor Linette Johnson of Lander and Pub- lic Health Nurse supervisor in Lovell Kimberly Cowan. "I wanted to provide contact information for Linette and Kimberly," Wi- ley said. "We've been meet- ing this morning going over continuity of services for my upcoming retirement." She said Cowan will as- sume some of her duties in the interim, including su- pervision of staff and budget oversight. Cowan will split time between the Greybull and Lovell offices until a re- placement is hired. Wiley added that she is going over grant procedures and reporting requirements with Cowan and the office will continue to work with grants administration. She said her last work- ing day will be Feb. 2, but added that she will be tak- ing a few weeks off this month. Johnson said, "Susan has been amazing to work with. Her knowledge she has shared is amazing. She has a transition plan well in place that she has worked on over the past year." Johnson then discussed the process for Wiley's re- placement. She said all new employees have to be ap- proved by the Public Health Administrator under the Wyoming Department of Health and a request to fill the vacancy has been sub- mitted. She said she didn't know how long the process would take but didn't fore- see any issues with the re- quest. She said she hoped everything would be ready to begin advertising by the time Wiley retires. When asked if the com- mission could assist the of- fice in any way, Johnson said a letter stating how important the role is in Big Horn County couldn't hurt. She said the commis- sion will be involved in the hiring process and she would welcome one or all three members sitting in on the interviews when that time comes. She said inter- views would be conducted locally. Wiley said she will con- tinue on a volunteer basis working on emergency pre- paredness. Chairman Jerry Ewen said, "We really appreciate all you've done for the coun- ty. It's run so well. There are never any complaints." He added, after Wiley com- plimented her staff, "It's be- cause of leadership."

He forgot to mention the bill... 25 YEARS AGO Lovell Chronicle, January 22, 1987 Workers and management at the Western Sugar Factory in Lovell cel- ebrated a milestone this week when the factory Sunday night produced the equivalent of its I millionth bag of sug- ar.

Fuller enjoying work with Wyoming Chiropractic Association BY DAVID PECK Lovell chiropractor Ross Fuller said he has very much enjoyed his ser- vice on the board of direc- tors of the Wyoming Chi- ropractic Association, to which he was named at the association's spring con- vention last May. Fuller said the pur- pose of the WCA is to pro- mote camaraderie among members of the profes- sion, facilitate networking and work on legislative is- sues through lobbying and working with Wyoming leg- islators. The WCA also works with the Wyoming Chiro- practic Board of Examin- ers, the appointed body that approves chiroprac- tic licenses in the state of Wyoming and adminis- ters tests and procedures to make sure chiropractors meet state standards. "We work with the gov- erning board on issues that have an effect on the pro- fession like laws and regu- lations," Fuller said, noting that the WCA is working on new Workman's Camp uti- lization guidelines - guide- lines the state uses when a chiropractor treats a work- er who has been injured. The WCA is also work- ing with the new federal health care rules and reg- ulations known as the Pa- tient Protection and Af- fordable Care Act to assess how the act will affect Wy- oming. The WCA has been working with Rep. Elaine Harvey of Lovell and the House Labor, Health and Social Services Committee, which Harvey chairs. Ross Fuller Fuller said the WCA board meets once a month by telephone conference call, and gets together as a board twice a year for a spring convention and fall convention. "We're responsible for bringing in speakers and developing continuing ed- ucation for chiropractors across the state," Fuller said. Fuller is going on 14 years as a chiropractor. He earned his degree from the Palmer Chiropractic Col- lege in Davenport, Iowa, and practiced in Montana and Utah before moving to Wyoming in 2003. He started a practice in Cody and also worked at North Big Horn Hospital, then opened Yellowstone Chiropractic in 2005. He and his wife, Wendy, live in Cowley with their five chil- dren.
