8 I The Lovell Chronicle I March 7, 2013 Anthony Estes of Deaver placed first in the high school division at the Stars of Tomorrow competition held in Powell recently. Citizens interested in helping in an emergency are encouraged to sign up for a Community Emer- gency Response Training course in Lovell. Sponsored by Big Horn County Emergency Man- agement, the CERT course will be held every Tues- day from March 19 through April 30 at the Big Horn County Annex in Lovell. Each class is scheduled to run from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Big Horn County Emer- gency Management Coor- dinator John Hyde said CERT is deigned to build up a community emergency response corps in the event of a major emergency when first responders may be overwhelmed. "Following a major di- saster, first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for these services," Hyde said. "Fac- tors such as number of vic- tims, communication fail- ures and road blockages will prevent people from ac- cessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in or- der to meet their immediate life saving and life sustain- ing needs. "One also expects that, under these kinds of condi- tions, family members, fel- low employees and neigh- bors will spontaneously try to help each other. This was the case following the Mex- ico City earthquake where untrained, spontaneous vol- unteers saved 800 people. However, 100 people lost their lives while attempting to save others. This is a high price to pay and is prevent- able through training." Topics during the course will include disaster pre- paredness, fire safety and how to suppress small fires, triage, treating basic inju- ries, conducting light search and rescue operations, CERT organization, disas- ter psychology, terrorism and disaster simulation. ' rou can be taught how to prepare yourself and your family for a disaster, some very basic firefighting skills, disaster first aid, search and rescue techniques, dealing with the psychological side of disasters and terrorism," Hyde said. For more information call Hyde at 548-2516 or 307-254-4967 or Dennis Woodward at 548-2409 or 272-7073. Pre-registration is re- quired, and the deadline is March 10, Hyde said. BY PATTI CARPENTER Anthony Estes of Deaver took top honors at the Stars of Tomorrow com- petition sponsored by the Powell Kiwanis Club in Powell on Friday, Feb. 22. Estes, 17, won first place in the high school age group division by performing his own composition entitled "Temptation" on the piano. The Rocky Mountain High School sophomore said the sounds in the piece remind- ed him of a battle between good and evil, so he named the piece accordingly. Estes was inspired to learn the piano at age 7 af- ter hearing his older sis- ter Malerie play. He began composing his own music at age 12 and has written nu- merous pieces since then. Estes said he sees the com- petitions as a valuable way to get feedback about his music. He plans to study mu- sic in college and would like to compose music for the movies someday. His win at the Powell compe- tition makes him eligible to compete in Buffalo later this month. Addison and Ashley Aagard of Lovell performed a vocal duet of "Vivo Per Lei." The pair won third place for their performance in the high school age division. Alexis Minemyer of Byron placed third in the grades 3 - 5 category for her dance performance in a group with several girls from Powell to the song "Shake a Tail Feather." Stetson Asay, Kiara Jolley and Serrentity Zin- gelwicz, all of Lovell, per- formed in the kindergar- ten through second grade class. Although the class is not judged, the young per- formers received a medal for their performance. County to look at expanding solid waste board BY KARLA POMEROY The mayors of the coun- ty's three largest municipal- ities came to the Big Horn County Commissioners two weeks ago to seek repre- sentation on the Big Horn County Solid Waste Board. Basin Mayor Amy Kania said they are here to make sure they have a "place at the table" with the solid waste board. She said they would like to have the board membership expand- ed by two to have a north and south member. She said state statute allows up to nine members and there are currently five members. "We attend the meet- ings, but to have direct rep- resentation would be more beneficial," Kania said. Commissioner Keith Grant said there is like- ly some process that they would have to go through to expand the board. Chair- man Jerry Ewen said they could direct the county at- torney's office to look into the process. Greybull Mayor Bob Graham said, "Amy and I have had a lot of discus- sion about this and felt we weren't very well rep- resented, especially being the major supporters of the landfill." The board is ap- pointed by. the county commissioners. Lovell mayor Bruce Morrison said he is in favor of having representation on the board. "We're not really disgruntled, we just feel we need to be part of the discus- sion of what's going to hap- pen with our landfill." He added that they know changes are coming and it's better if they are part of. the discussion. Grant said, "Garbage is becoming a bigger and big- ger issue and the more help we can get the better." Kania said Mondays are the big trash days in Basin and they take three to four trips to the landfill. Graham said Greybull picks up dai- ly and takes about two trips, except Friday. The commissioners agreed by consensus to have the county attorney's office research the procedure. Open enrollment is here! Register online now at n h h l ittlele a a u e. c o m.
