2 I The Lovell Chronicle I January 29, 2015 Farmer urges Kay "KK" Francis King Linda Graves drwers to slow for Jan. 26,1937-Jan. 21,2015 May17, 1951-Jan. 20,2015 Kay "KK" Francis King, Linda Jean Graves, emergency lights BY DAVID PECK A Lovell area farmer is asking the driving public to pay attention and heed warning lights when driving on lo- cal highways following a scare last Friday night. Brad Tippetts said he was working to return a loose cow to pasture Friday when a number of vehicles drove by at a high rate of speed, putting him and themselves in danger. He is urging the public in a letter to the editor this week to slow down when drivers see warning flashers on or along the highway. Tippetts farms east of Lovell in the Sand Draw area and said he checks his highway frontage for loose cows ev- ery evening. Friday, he had already checked during the late afternoon but while heading to town for dinner with wife Colleen just after dark around 6:30 p.m., he spotted one loose black angus cow just east of Sand Draw adjacent to Rick and mother Ruth Tippetts' place, where Brad Tip- petts pastures some of his cows. He said the cows can gain access to the Rick Tippetts yard and grounds but there is a highway fence between the home and U.S. 14A adjacent to the property. He said one cow managed to get out and was eating grass on the north side of the highway next to the fence. Driving with his wife in her car, Tippetts stopped just off the westbound lane in an attempt to apprehend the loose cow, turning off his headlights butturning on his emergency flashers. "I know from experience that if you have a car with its headlights on it's hard to see flashing lights, and it can also blind the cow," he said. "I got the cow turned around to head back to Rick's yard, but the cow crossed the road on me." Tippetts flipped around to chase the cow to the east and parked directly in the eastbound lane with his flash- ers on to protect the cow and, he hoped, slow traffic, since vehicles had already whizzed by when he was partially off the highway in the westbound lane. Being fully in the eastbound lane was no better, he said, as more vehicles zoomed by at around 70 miles per hour, he estimated, a couple of them nearly clipping him while he was out trying to apprehend the cow, which even- tually exited the highway at a county road to the east. "I had to bring her back and finally got her across the highway," he said. "I had to be out there like a cross- ing guard and had to holler to Colleen to see if traffic was coming." Tippetts said he was so upset by the zooming vehicles that he threw his coat at one car and the driver slowed and apologized. He figured about five vehicles went by. The point is, Tippetts said, that drivers should slow down if they see emergency flashers. "It's the law that if a highway patrolman has someone pulled over people must slow down. Can't I get the same courtesy with flashing lights on?" he asked. "People are in such a darn hurry. They can't (stop to) help you anymore. I apologize for having cows on the road occasionally, but things happen." Tippetts said drivers need to be attentive this time of year when cows are down off mountain pasture, noting that there are cows: pastured on botlt ,sides of 14A from Miller's Fabrication east for seven miles or so. From our files Hinckley introduces bill in 1915 legislature regarding wagon tires 100 YEARS AGO, JAN. 30,1915 The Cowley Weekly Progress Representative J. H. Hinckley is introducing some mighty good in the legislature. He has introduced a bill making it unlawful to sell wagons in this state having tires less than three inches wide after July 15, 1915. This is a splendid measure, and we hope he will succeed in en- acting it into law. i iii:iii!iiii+iiiii(!iiiiiiiiii!iii!ill ++ [ top Sto0000es The Bible Church online every week at  wog:,m00 so.,oo ,o+. : 5+ ,,a,.
