But, the fro- zen earth has disappeared. The fields are being plowed, the earth has turned and it is beautiful. As people travel to Bill- ings and leave Bridger, the earth is red, the plowed ground is symmetrical and assures us that Spring re- ally is here and life goes on in its cycle. The new calves and lambs are grow- ing steadily and it's a plea- sure to see the countryside springing to life. Marguerite Simmons, Brenda Brost and Kathy May are in charge of the Pi- oneer Book this year for the big reunion in July. If you know some teachers who were in the Cowley High School that you wish to be acknowledged, contact any of those three women. The Easter weekend brought families together for wonderful food and vis- iting. The celebration of Christ's resurrection was held as people of all de- nominations were in their churches and had programs and prayers of thanks to Christ as he sacrificed his life for our redemption. Ray and Cresta Peter- son took their two sons, Jordan and Kyle, on a fam- ily vacation last week. They saw Ray's brothers, Curt and Ken, and their fami- lies in Utah. They drove to St. George and saw their Uncle Pat and Aunt Sid- ney Whalen and on to Las Vegas to see uncle Tom and Marcy Tebbs and Cresta's cousin, Teresa. It was a wonderful trip, and the four returned to Cowley late Fri- day night and their son Re- ese and wife Stephanie of Riverton came home for the weekend. Doug Arnold is a new resident of Cowley. He is the new manager of Cow- ley Lumber and is current- ly staying with Rudy and Dorine Strom until his fam- ily arrives after the school year. He and his wife Vick- ie have six children, the oldest being 12. They are from Conifer, Colo. Vickie ........ is Dorine's sister, and she is looking forward to them living in Cowley near them. Welcome to Doug and his family. Byron news GARY GRUELL 548-2220 The annual Easter Egg Hunt is one of the several community events spon- sored by the Byron Lions Club. They also sponsor the BBQ lunch and the parade during Byron Days celebra- tion, provide eye exams and glasses for the needy, schol- arships for graduates, con- tribute monetary donations to the Byron Recreation Dept. and youth activities such as baseball. With that in mind, the Lions Club will be hold- ing their annual auction on April 24 at the Byron Bar. The auction is the club's top fundraising event. Dona- tions are now being accept- ed for the auction. Contact any member of the Lions Club and help them help our community. If your pets have not yet been licensed for the year, they are now overdue. Con- tact Vicki at the Town Com- plex for more information. Wyoming Gas has start- ed replacing their gas lines on the north side of Byron. This project will be com- pleted in four to six weeks. Wyoming Gas replaced the lines on the south side of Town last summer with only a few mishaps that were taken care of. I was asked to remind people of their refuse con- tainers being removed from the street after being emp- tied by the Solid Waste Dept. Forgetting to bring them back into your yard happens now and then. You are asked to be a bit more diligent in complying with the ordinance. The Mayor's Luncheon will be held this Friday at its regular time, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Only two soup providers have volunteered for this month. If you would like to contribute to this popular community event, please call Vicki with your intent to provide soup this week. Remember, the lun- cheon is free to the public. This Friday, the Byron Lions Club and the Byron Bar are hosting a road and ditch clean-up. It is hopeful that this would be another community event and an attempt to clean a two-mile stretch ofHwy. 14A west of Byron to the George Abra- ham home. Volunteers are asked to meet at 4 p.m. Fri- day at the Red Eagle Pump Station. Tuesday, April 13, there will be a regular town council meeting at 7 p.m. with a work meeting at 6. The general public is wel- come at any council meet- ing, other than executive sessions. As always, have a great and safe week. Get Growing o., with Gary Emmett GARY EMMETT It is that time of year again, time to get the Band- aids out of the cabinet and onto my hands and fingers. While I am building up the calluses on my hands for the= season ahead, I have al- ready had a couple of blis- ters form and pop. Sitting in front of a computer and driving as much as I have done in the last six months has allowed my hands to go soft and lose the calluses from last year. Springtime has brought about the time to start work- ing out in the yard more and more. With the additional daylight we are starting to get each day, it is easy to find myself out longer and longer on the days that I am home. There is always something that needs to be raked, shoveled or moved. My hands are now starting to show the effects of the ex- tra time spent in the yard. I have been raking the dead leaves from last year away from the rose bush- es and some of the peren- nials throughout the yard. Some of these leaves were purposely and strategical- ly placed last fall as an in- sulating protection. How- ever, there were plenty of stray leaves that, over the course of the winter, blew in and decided to add their protecting values to places I didn't know needed protec- tion. But what do I do with all of the extra leaves? There has been talk about a community com- posting project. I didn't want to walt that long to see what was going to hap- pen there, and I don't like sending clean yard waste to the landfill, and by clean, I mean without chemicals. And I couldn't burn the leaves, so I spread them out on my lawn, got the lawn mower out of the garage, and mowed over them. I'll start my own compost pile. Actually, I'll discuss composting later, but for now, the chopped up leaves are going in the garden. We are putting in raised beds for part of our garden this year, and so the leaves will aid in mixing with the soil, creating a lighter, fluffi- er planting bed. However, this would be a great addi- tive to help in the aeration of a regular garden and/or flowerbed, too. Since the chopped up leaves are brown, they have a high carbon ratio. I won't be adding any green mate- rial to the soil yet, so I will have to offset the high car- bon ratio with some added nitrogen. This will help in balancing the carbon to ni- trogen ratio that is so im- portant in composting. This source of nitrogen can come from regular fertilizer, but be careful how high the first number is on the fertilizer bag. I like to use some of the organic nitrogen fertil- izers, such as blood meal, because they are slower to break down and will not burn or hurt new vegetable starts. As I am raking, shovel- ing and mixing the chopped leaves with the dirt that I brought in from the neigh- bors, thanks Kim and Wayne, the blisters have started to form once again on my hands. But that is my fault because I was will- ing to work with the broken tool that needed to be fixed or replaced. Yes, I consider gloves to be tools. They are impor- tant and need to be taken care of also. There are many things that need to be done to get ready for spring and work- ing in the yard. Make sure your shovels, hoes and pruners have been sharp- ened and are in good work- ing condition. These main- tenance tasks or repairs will allow for easier work and for your safety in the yard. Duct tape isn't the answer to fixing a cracked handle. Though I have seen it done, I can say that I haven't used it myself to splice a handle of a shov- el or hoe. When using the proper tool in good working condition, that task at hand won't seem like drudgery: You will enjoy working in the yard even more. Even though I have several pairs of gloves to choose from, I have one pair in particular that has been worn through a couple of seasons. They are very com- fortable and have seen a lot of use. They have served me well, yet I can't seem to part with them. Hence, the real reason to get the Band-aids out: my gloves that I have relied on for so long just need to be replaced. Band- aids won't hold them to- gether any longer.

The two remaining dormitories from the sugar factory will be moved onto the lot and placed in the shape of an 'T' to make a spacious hospital with ac- commodations for 12 pa- tients and a full suite of of- fice rooms for the doctors, baths, x-ray, operating room and kitchen. The new building will provide excel- lent facilities for the clin- ic of Doctors Croft, Hors- ley and Croft, filling a real need in the community. WW~ At the Basket Store seven pounds of apples, 25 cents; three pounds of rice, 19 cents; bacon, 29 cents/ pound and flour-Gold Med- al 48-pound bag, $2.09. Any orders over $3 were deliv- ered free. W~t~ Taking a prominent place as one of the major operations in a program of building and remodeling on the Armada. Theatre is be- ing pushed to early~comp]~e- tion. The chaliges, in this popular showhouse include removal of the wood floor downstairs and the laying of a sloped concrete floor. The Armada has long enjoyed a reputation for ex- cellent sound results, and with a continuance of the policy of showing all the best shows, Lovell will have the best theatre in the Big Horn Basin. 50 YEARS AGO APRIL 7, 1960 The Lovell Chronicle: Burglars broke into the Hillman Sport Shop in Love]] sometime Friday night and made off with be- tween $500 and $600 worth of guns and ammunition. The weapons taken were from three different racks in the store and all but one re- volver were older guns from a collection. The exception was a new .22 magnum. Only a few of these are on the market. It is believed that the persons who broke in were not acquainted with the location of the weap- ons as they stole a used ri- fle which stood beside a new rifle complete with scope. They also cleaned the store of 30-30 and 30-06 shells. The Lovell Town Coun- cil repealed the ordinance against trading stamps in the community after review- ing a poll taken at a sam- pling of business places in the town. It was brought to the council's attention last week that local business was being lost to other communities in the area which were using stamps. At that time the council instructed the poll to be taken and at the same time contacted the county at- torney about enforcement of the state law that bans trad- ing stamps. During the poll, which was conducted Friday and Saturday, 517 names ap- peared in favor of the stamps, while only five signed against their use. The council then voted to repeal the ban .... Residents of the comxnu- nity have been issued a no- tice by the Town of Lovell to clean up their property dur- ing the period of April 2 to 16. The town officials will cooperate in the removal of debris if it is placed in the al- leys or other convenient loca- tions. To put some teeth into the request, the officials have stated that any property not cleaned by the April 16 dead- line will be cleaned by city crews and the owners of this property will be assessed for the service. It is noted by the officials that residents should have enough pride in their own property and the community that the latter action will not have to be used. They stated however that they were in no way fooling and would take action to get the city in shape for the coming summer sea- son. i- $ !M i !- t
