April 5, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle 15 DAVID PECK A member of the Wilson Brothers Construction crew moves a manhole into place Tuesday on Sixth Street between the Wyoming National Guard Armory and Constitution Park. South Project resumes on Nevada Avenue BY DAVID PECK A sure sign of spring is the resumption of the Lovell water and sewer in: frastructure project, and sure enough, the big ma- chines from Wilson Broth- ers Construction have be- gun to roll. The 2011 portion of the South Phase actually con- tinued until January 17 in order to get the water line across the Globe Canal and to residents atop the bench north of Garfield, and on Monday, about 11 weeks lat- er, Wilson Brothers began mobilizing for the spring and summer work to come. Owner/operator Kim Wilson and project engineer Frank Page said Tuesday that work began Monday, though the project wont totally gear up until next Monday, April 9. "We're trying to get roads back in shape and things cleaned up," Wilson said. "It was pretty cold and miserable when we shut down in January." Wilson Brothers was busy Tuesday installing a new manhole on Sixth Street between the Wyo- ming National Guard Ar- mory and Constitution Park. The manhole will reach an under-drain sys- tem that drains ground- water north and then east from the southeast part of town. Wilson said it was im- portant to get the manhole in before water flows in the Globe Canal. Starting Monday, Wil- son Brothers will start mill- ing asphalt on the upper bench in the area of the hos- pital and will continue to mill the rest of the project below the hill. People will need to get their cars off the street, Wilson said, and people will be given notice. The first thing after the milling will be to complete the "Nevada Hill" portion of the project. Page said that means disinfecting and pressure testing the water main and completing ser- vice lines, then complet- ing the under-drain from the Globe Canal to the top of the hill. After that, Ne- vada Avenue can be rebuilt, though it won't be paved until paving is done late this summer. "We'll start at the top of the hill and do all of the water and sewer work first, then work our way into the lower area below the bench," Wilson said. Work was under way this week by Wilson Broth- ers, installing water ser- vice lines between Seventh and Eighth on Nevada, and Montana-Dakota Utilities has been finishing its gas line project with comple- tion of the main line and resumption of service line connections. Hospital foundation's Evening With Friends features magician/comedian BY DAVID PECK Tickets are on sale now for the North Big Horn Hospital Foundation's annual Evening With Friends fund- raising event, which will take place on Saturday, April 28, at the Lovell Com- munity Center. Foundation Director Janet Korit- nik said the evening will begin with a social "hour" from 5:30 to 7 p.m. that includes appetizers, a cash bar and a silent auction featuring artwork, pho- tographs, jewelry, quilts and baskets, followed by an "elegant" dinner of prime rib or chicken Kiev, with compli- mentary wine at each table. The headliner this year is profes- sional magician/comedian Shawn Pres- ton of Denver, known as "The Magic Dude." Koritnik said Preston is known for his quick wit and spontaneous hu- mor combined with exceptional slight of hand. His act includes music, humor and magic. He will also interact with guests during the social hour. All proceeds from the Evening With Friends will go to the permanent endowment for the foundation that will be matched dollar for dollar by the State of Wyoming. Koritnik noted that several silent auction items are already available for bidding on the hospital's website - www,nbhh.com.

County proclaims April Month of Military Child oming National Guard in been directly affected by Purple-up Day April 13 BY KARLA POMEROY The Big Horn County commissioners proclaimed April as Month of the Mili- tary Child, something every county was doing this week. "It's a way to recognize families serve too and don't get a lot of recognition for it," Chairman Jerry Ewen said. National Guardsmen Mike Laird and county 4-H Educator Gretchen Gasvo- da-Kelso came to support the signing of the procla- mation by the commission- ers proclaiming April as Military Child Month. Gas- voda-Kelso said 4-H has partnered with the Guard in support of military chil- dren. She said this year the junior leaders .built more than 400 hero packs that included booklets with fun- ny sayings, LifeSavers, Q- tips and more. The packs were distributed by the Wy- Cheyenne. As part of Military Child Month, April 13 is "Purple-Up" day with peo- ple encouraged to wear pur- ple in support of military children. She said ,Greybull schools are on spring break and will purple-up on April 20. Laird said commission- ers across the state are signing on behalf of the gov- ernor since he can't be in every county. Kelso added that fami- lies not involved in the mili- tary don't necessarily un- derstand what the children go through when a parent is deployed. The proclamation states, "Whereas thousands of brave Americans have demonstrated their courage and commitment to free- the military deployment of at least one parent; and "Whereas, These chil- dren and youth are a source of pride and honor to us all, and it is only fitting that we take time to recognize their contributions, cele- brate their spirit, and let our men and women in uni- form know that while they are taking care of us, we are taking care of their children and youth; "Whereas, The recogni- tion of April as Month of the Military Child will allow us to pay tribute to military children and youth for their commitment, their strug- gles and their uncondition- al support of our troops be- cause when parents serve in the military their chil- dren serve too; and "Whereas, A month- dom by serving the Armed long salute to military chil- Forces of the Unit Statea dren and youth will encour- of Amecd\\;inac dui; age local communities to posts in Afghanistan, Iraq provide direct support to and around the world; and military children and fam- "Whereas, Approxi- ilies" ... the commissioners mately 5,000 of Wyoming's proclaim April as the Month children and youth have of the Military Child."
