The Business Coun- cil had voted to award the Town of Cowley $991,960 under the Community Fa- cilities Program, which will allow the town to continue efforts to gradually renovate and restore the 77:year-old structure as a community center. SLIB, made up of the five statewide elected officials - Gov. Matt Mead, Secretary of State Max Max- field, State Treasurer Joe Meyer, State Auditor Cyn- thia Cloud and State Supt. of Public Instruction Cindy Hill - voted April 12 to ap- prove more than $6 million in Business Ready Commu- ties Program grants at its meeting in Cheyenne, in- cluding the Cowley project. The Community Facili- ties Program assists com- munities in preserving for- mer school and government surplus facilities that have existing or future commu- nity uses. Project engineer Willie Bridges of Pryor Mountain Engineering said in March that the Town of Cowley was able to use the value of the building itself as the match for the grant and that no additional monies are required to be spent on the latest phase of the ren- ovation. He said the town bought the building from School District No. 1 many years ago. The project will include an entire new floor includ- ing some foundation work, Bridges said, adding, "The led and moved we assume there will be some things we won't see until we re- move the floor." Bridges said the floor joists will need to be re- placed, as well as some of the concrete piers. Also in the plans is pressure washing and re- sealing all of the logs in- side and out, first remov- ing old chinking and then replacing it with new syn- thetic chinking that will be similar to silicone caulking but with a different texture specifically designed for log chinking. Bridges said the project will also include insulating the roof with a rigid poly- styrene insulation. Because the insulation will add a layer to the roof section, new fascia and soffit work will be performed around the eaves, he said. funded earlier by an en- ergy efficiency grant un- der the American Recov- ery and Reinvestment Act- of 2009, is a new heating and air conditioning sys- tem that will be installed this spring and completed by June 30, Bridges said. New doors and windows are also included in the energy- efficiency phase of the proj- ect and were installed this winter. Funds for the next phase of the renovation project will become avail- able on July 1, Bridges said, md after about a two- month design period, the project should be ready to go to bid in the fall. Some interior floor and re-sealing work will be able to be com- pleted over the winter, with the exterior roof and out- side wall work continuing the following spring. BLM and Honor Farm to host wild horse adoption The Bureau of Land Management and the Wyo- ming Honor Farm will host a wild horse adoption and gen- fling clinic, the first of two to be held at the facility this year, on May 18-19 in River- ton. The BLM and the Hon- or Farm have worked coop- eratively since 1988 to train and adopt wild horses. The Honor Farm has found that this program contributes to inmate rehabilitation suc- cess. Trainers and wild hors- es make positive strides to- gether by learning to respect and trust each other. Train- ers learn that through com- munication, patience and respect, even a wild animal will respond positively. In- mates who are released af- ter working in this program have a greater chance to suc- ceed in the outside world. On Friday, May 18, the Honor Farm will offer a free clinic to discuss the gentling program, followed by a pre- view of the horses. The clinic will feature demonstrations by Honor Farm Training Su- pervisor Jeff Martin focusing on catching a horse, advance and retreat, picking up feet and beginning to ride. The gentling clinic runs from 1-3 p.m. and is open to the pub- lic. On Saturday, May 19, the gates will open at 7:30 a.m., with the competitive bidding beginning at 10:30 a.m. Approximately 30 hal- ter and saddle-started hors- es will be available for adop- tion. All horses offered have been trailered and have had their feet handled. Applica- tions for adoption will be ac- cepted on both Friday and Saturday. A covered four- horse trailer with a swing gate is required to adopt. Lunch concessions will be available at the adoption. The Wyoming Honor Farm is located one mile north of Ri- verton. Take US-26 to Hon- or Farm Road. For more in- formation, visit www.blm. gov/wy/st/en/programs/ Wild_Horses.html or call 866-4MUSTANGS (866-468- 7826).

Thirty-one years ago in the first week of May, the first is- sue was printed. Beginning with this week's issue we are labeling them Volume 32. We hope that the paper may en- joy thirty-one more years of reading by the people of the Shoshone valley. 50 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle, May 3, 1,962 Photo: Better late than never. For those who missed the traditional color picture on the cover of the Easter edi- tion, here it is. The picture was somewhat slow getting back from the lithographers where the Chronicle color sep- arations are made. We figured the two subjects in the pho- to were much too sweet to go unpublished. The little man is Donald Davis and the lily-bearing girl is Cindy Bischoff. 25 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle, May 7, 1987 The Bighorn National Forest plans to implement on June 1 new camping regulations that could dramatical- ly change the way people use the forest. The new regula- tions are two-fold in nature, establishing a 14-day limit for camping and restricting camping in what they call "visu- ally sensitive" areas.
