April 5, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle 13 PROJECT tal construction projects. Six of the nine municipalities must give the go-ahead in order for the proposed sales tax to be placed on the general election ballot in November. Morrison said the ideas that have come up so far for Lovell's project (or projects) in- clude a new building that would house both the Lovell-Kane Museum and the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center and, sug- gested this week, new restrooms and a con- cessions area for the Lovell Rodeo Grounds. At tonight's meeting the town will ex- plain the proposed sixth-cent tax program and the current ideas for the money and will also listen to any new ideas for proj- ects whether citizens are for or against the proposal. Morrison said written comments will also be accepted. continued from page 1 "The bottom line is that the people will vote on it and decide," Morrison said. "It's not like we're trying to shove it down peo- ple's throats. It's an avenue for funding that can work really well. "It's going to be a tough sell. I'm totally for it. I think it's a great way to do some of the projects we need." There is a short time frame to get the sales tax proposal approved for the ballot, and that's why Thursday night's meeting is important, Morrison said. It's a chance for people to weigh in on the idea and ei- ther accept or reject going forward with the proposal and/or accept or reject the ideas expressed for Lovell's portion. People can come or go tonight at their leisure, Morrison stressed, with no formal presentations to be made. PATTI CARPENTER The Relay for Life event will feature a beautiful display of candle-lit luminarias to honor those stricken with cancer as it has in previous years. The luminarias are rearranged repeatedly during the night to spell different inspirational words like hope and faith. Relay for Life date set BY PATTI CARPENTER Organizers have set the date to light up the night once again at the Sixth An- nual Relay for Life cancer fundraising event, which will be held on Aug. 10 and 11. The theme this year is "Celebration." Ten teams have al- ready signed up for the event, with many return- ing from last year. Ac- cording to organizer Cheri Mickelson, the group hopes to surpass the re- cord amount of $36,000 raised for cancer research in previous years. The event begins on Friday night at Kevin P. Robertson Memorial Sta- dium, starting at 7 p.m, As in previous years, a survi- vor's lap around the track will set the stage for an en- tire evening of team mem- bers taking turns walking around the track. In previ- ous years, as many as 75 cancer survivors walked that first lap around the track. Caregivers also took a lap to honor those friends ad family bers who supported the cancer sur- vivors throughout their or- deal. After the initial laps around the track are tak- en by survivors and care- givers, team members wiIl alternate individual laps throughout the night. The event will also feature a beautiful dis- play of candle-lit luminar- /as to honor those stricken with cancer. Luminarias are small paper bags filled with sand and one strategi- cally placed votive candle. When lit, the bags create a lantern effect. Community members can purchase the bags, and request the name of someone they know who was stricken with cancer to be written on the bag. The dramatic presentation is designed to remind the community of how many friends, family members and neighbors have been touched by cancer in their lives. One of the new teams this year will be led by can- cer survivor Dorothy Bush. Bush invited all of her chil- dren to come to Lovell to join her team this year. "This just goes to show that anyone can form a team; you don't have to be a business," said organizer Cheri Mickelson. Mickelson has entered a team every year for the past five years. This year her team is sponsored by the Brandin' Iron Restau- rant, and a few of the wait- resses from the restaurant plan to join Mickelson in her walk to fight cancer. "My mother is a survi- vor and I've lost both of my mother's parents to cancer, two of her brothers died of cancer, my father passed away with cancer, so I've lost many family members to cancer," explained Mick- elson. "So, that's my big- gest reason to relay; I don't want to see my grandkids go through what I went through. I'd love to see the day when someone says, 'oh, I've got cancer' and the other person says 'oh, what's that?'" New teams this year will include the Bible Church, Minchow's Food Court and VIP Pre-school, Lovell High School's girls state championship basket- ball team is also entering the event and has put out the challenge to the boys basketball team or any of the other sports teams in the area to start up a relay team, as well. Other indi- viduals have also picked up packets for the event and are in the process of assem- bling their teams. "We're shooting for 15 teams this year, that's what our goal is," said Mickelson. "We're already three quar- ters of the way there." The event begins on Friday night at 7 p.m. and ends on Saturday morning at 7 a.m. This year will in- clude a family fun night with booths that offer fam- ily-friendly games. There will also been food avail- able for sale at "tailgate" concessions put on by the individual teams with the proceeds going toward the group's contribution to the event. The evening will also include local entertain- ment as in previous years. Spectators are invited to come and watch teams walk laps around the track the entire evening. Can- dlelight luminarias will light up the night in a bril- liant display that changes throughout the evening.
