ANGELA ROKICAK Hyde to begin duties as EMC March 1 BY KARLA POMEROY Wyoming Game and Fish Game War- den John Hyde officially accepted the po- sition to become Big Horn County's next emergency management coordinator. In an interview with the Big Horn County commissioners Friday, Jan. 16, Hyde asked for six weeks before beginning duties on March 1. Hyde said after 35 years with the Game and Fish he will be retiring next month. "This is an opportunity for change," Hyde said in addressing a question by Com- missioner Jerry Ewen on why he wants to become the next EMC. He said it would be a positive change and he could still be serv- ing the public. "It's a way to better myself, a good way to fmish my life out. I look at it as a chal- lenge," Hyde said. He said he sees his experience with Game and Fish as an asset with some of the duties similar includLag the need to work with other agenciesl -i~ Hyde will be replacing RiCh Fir/k, ~b worked part time as the coordinator and has taken a civilian job with the Wyoming National Guard. Hyde will serve full time. Salary has been recommended by the Local Emergency Planning Commission inter- view committee at $41,698. The state sup- ports the position with 50 percent of the funding, Commissioner Keith Grant said. In other business Friday, Jan. 16, the commissioners: Tabled a decision to hire a summer intern for the Big Horn County Attorney's office. County and Prosecuting Attorney Georgia Antley Hunt said she has inter- viewed a second-year law student but fund- ing for an intern was not budgeted. Com- missioners Ewen and Grant expressed concerns about adding a non-budgeted ex- pense at this time. The decision was tabled until February when the commissioners may have more information on the type of funding the State Legislature will provide counties this year. Received a letter stating that the public hearing for the B'linda Dover road issue has been continued. A new date has not been set. The hearing was originally scheduled for Feb. 16. Set a public hearing for the Hyatt- ville Community Center for a Community Development Block Grant application. Kris Robertson asked the county to support the grant application, adding that the applica- tion must be submitted by the county, but the Hyattville Cemetery District would handle the administration of the grant. The grant will help with the center's reno- vation. Robertson said they are seeking ad- ditional grant funding for Americans With Disabilities Act improvements including remodeling the bathrooms and installation of ramps. The hearing will be at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 28, in the commission- ers' meeting room in the Big Horn County Courthouse. Heard a report from Grant regarding the revision to the Bureau of Land Man- agement Big Horn Basin Resource Man- agement Plan. He said the Big Horn Ba- sin counties -- Hot Springs, Washakie, Big Horn and Park -- have hired a consultant to help address the counties' management concerns with the BLM. The counties, the conservation districts and the consultant, Ecosystem Resource Group of Missoula, Mont., will be meeting in Cody on Jan. 29 to discuss the duties of the consultant. Funds for the consultant are provided through a grant from the governor's office. Grant asked the commissioners to use the portion of the funds that Big Horn County agreed to pay for the match for the grant to help support participation from the South Big Horn Conservation District and the Shoshone Conservation District. The commissioners approved using matching funds for the grant to support the districts. Grant will look into the possibility of using funding from the Big Horn County Federal Natural Resource Planning Grant for the Big Horn Reservoir. Appointed Dean Wolvington to the Big Horn County Solid Waste Board. Horn players unite at NWC If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Moncur, 73, died quietly on Jan. 20, 2009, after a several-year battle with Picks disease. He was born March 3, 1935 in Brownsville, Tex- as, to Alphonso Moncur and LaPriel Cutler Moncur the seventh of 10 children. He grew up in Lovell, liv- ing on Little Valley Ranch and helping the family run it. Larry was a very hard worker on the ranch and he loved the outdoors and mountains of Wyoming with the horses, hunting, fishing and other activities. He graduated from Lovell High School and attended college in Utah. He survived and recov- ered from a broken neck in a 1956 diving accident and then attended medical school at the University of Rochesterwhere he received an MD degree in 1961. While in medical school, he joined the U.S. Air Force and after graduation spent a number of years stationed in Hawaii for an internship and residency. While in Ha- waii he met and married Diane Button and they had two daughters, Julia and Sara. He was also stationed in Japan for a period. He returned to Hawaii to practice medicine but eventually returned with his family to the main- land and joined the San- sum Clinic in Santa Barba- ra as a Gynecologist where he remained for the rest of his career. His wife, Diane, died in 2001 after a linger- ing illness. Larry was an avid pi- lot and would fly his air- plane throughout the west and down into Mexico with other doctor pilots to pro- vide medical care for needy people. He was a very car- ing person. He always made sure that others were com- fortable and satisfied before thinking of his own needs and wants. He took special care of his mother in her older years, and took great delight in his children and grandchildren. In 2003, Larry married Kelly Scott and they had a son, Larry Jr., who has the characteristics of his father when he was young. Lar- ry was admired and loved by all who knew him and shared his vibrant life and keenness. Larry is survived by his wife, Kelly; daughters Ju- lie Sorenson (Jim) and Sara Gilcrest (Robert); son Larry Jr. and six grandchildren.
