LES fifth-graders celebrate Arbor Day BY PATTI CARPENTER Members of the com- munity joined Lovell Ele- mentary School fifth-grad- ers in Constitution Park on Wednesday, April 25, to learn about the many ben- efits of trees and plant a few new trees at the park in cel- ebration of Arbor Day. Prizes were given for the winning posters (first through third place) to each of the fifth-grade class- rooms. Lovell fifth-grader Mikel May's poster took the grand prize and he won a trophy, an IPod and an "ad- vice from a tree" T-shirt for his efforts. May's poster was also sent to Project Learning Tree, a division of the Wyo- ming State Forestry Service, where it was on display with other posters from around the State. Magdalene Cruz won first place in Mrs. Gern- hardt's class. Freedom Rrule Warman place'fiird. Andrea Monterde took first in Mr. Harsh's class, Talon Grant second and Mat Savage third. Calvin Mickelson took first in Mrs. Hinkley's class, Alea Mays took second and Tylee Bassett took third. The first place winners from each classroom won a brand new scooter. The sec- ond place winners received Stomp Rockets. The third place winners received Su- per Skyrocket balls and Na- tional Park Service puzzles. This year's celebra- tion began with a Tree City Proclamation being read by Mayor Bruce Morrison, who talked about the significance of trees in the community. Jennifer Schneider, Lovell Tree Advisory Board chairman, talked about how important it is to be- come better stewards of the environment. She also an- nounced this year's poster contest winners. Paul Morency, District Forester with Wyoming State Forestry service, talk- ed about the importance of trees, tree care, and how "Trees are Terrific, Inside and Out", which is this yeas Arbor Day poster con- test theme. He also present- ed the Town of Lovell with the "Tree City USA Award" for maintaining its Tree City USA status. In order for a City to become a "Tree :City USA the city must pro- : daim :atff celebrate Arbor i Day, establish a tree adviso- ry board, have a town tree ordinance and spend $2 per capita for trees and tree care. Lovell has met these requirements. Bighorn Canyon NRA Supt. Jerry Case challenged the kids to be like the Lorax and protect trees in their environment from degrada- tion and destruction. Following the discus- sion about trees and their many benefits, the students grabbed shovels and, in Lovell Elementary School fifth-grader Mikel May won the grand prize in an Arbor Day poster contest, which included a trophy, an iPod and a special t-shirt.

Each child who partici- pated received a Smokey Bear grab bag provided by the Forest Service. Club News Daughters The Big Horn County Company of Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) met April 9 in Burlington with President Mary Jensen con- ducting. The museum presenta- tion by Patty Hansen was from a pioneer journal en- try. In the early 1840s the city charter of Nauvoo, Ill., was revoked, leaving the city of 15,000 plus vulnerable to lawless strangers who came to commit crimes, figuring their offenses would falsely be viewed as "Mormon" of- fenses. During this time, the "whistling and whittling bri- gade" protected the defense- of Utah less city. The brigade was a large group of boys with knives and sticks who would gath- er around any undesirable stranger, whistling and whit- fling, not saying a word but following him wherever he went. There was never any fighting, but frustration fi- nally caused the stranger to leave the city. Some highlights from her personal history were shared by Nadine Larson. Ann Bridges presented the ornate wedding album of her mother-in-law, Melba Bridg- es for an artifact. Hair art was the sub- Pioneers discuss Nauvoo history ject of guest speaker Laura Gerstner of Ten Sleep. Dur- ing the Victorian Era, 1835- 1900, the practice of saving hair was very popular Before photography was invented and when it was still not af- fordable for the majority of people, it became a common practice to make keepsakes from the hair of family mem- bers, loved ones and friends. Hair was used to make wreaths, framed pictures, bracelets, watch chains, necklaces and rings (even earrings). Porcelain hair receiv- ers, which were ornate jars with a hole in the lid through which strands of hair could be placed, were used to col- lect the hair that could be used for the keepsakes. These are now valuable col- lector's items. Delicious ice cream floats and Easter chocolates were served by the hostess commit- tee of Renon Jones, Michelle Jones and Nancy Bullinger. Announcements included the closing social May 14 will be a potluck salad luncheon a 1 p.m. in the Lovell Annex.

Powell recycling now takes pressed board and more items BY TESSA SCHWEIGERT The Powell Tribune You can begin recycling more items locally. Powell Valley Recycling manager Mary Jo Decker an- nounced this week that the center will now accept pressed board (including cardboard boxes used for cereal, shoes, crackers, beer or shirts), plastic film (such as shrink wrap or dry cleaner bags) and propane cylinders (often used for camp stoves). Since the recycling center moved into its new facility west of town last fall, Decker said the center's board has looked at expanding what recyclables they can receive. The center started accepting all types of recyclable plastics -- No. 1 through No. 7 -- when it moved into the new location at 946 Road 10, north of Fremont Motors. "We wanted to find markets for some of the things that we hadn't been able to do in the past. That was our next step," Decker said. The center receives aluminum cans from Yellowstone National Park, and Decker said the truck that drops off Yellowstone's cans will then haul away the propane cylin- ders and recycle them. "This is just going to be a service to our customers -- we're not going to make a dime on them," Decker said. In addition to Yellowstone, Powell Valley Recycling also receives materials from Greybull, Basin, Lovell, Ralston and other surrounding communities. "Not just Powell," Decker said. Decker said she has seen an increase in recycling since the new center opened. In its first six months of operation, the new center re- ceived 386 tons. That's up from 382 tons for the same time frame last year. Even though the tonnage hasn't increased significant- ly, volumes have increased, Decker said. "Plastics have just ballooned -- and they don't weigh anything," she said. Decker reminded people to clean out their plastics and other recyclables before dropping them off. Plastic liners should be removed from cereal or cracker boxes. "Take the caps off bottles and rinse out food stuff," Decker added. "We want to try to keep this place clean." If items are too dirty or mixed with trash, they have to be thrown away. "Some of it is a health issue," Decker said. "I don't ex- pect our employees to dig through people's dirty Kleenex- es, which we get a lot of." Garbage -- including items that are not recyclable -- belongs in the landfill, not at the recycling center. "We have to pay for our garbage, too. We can't afford to take it to the landfill," she said, If you wonder whether something can be recycled, call Powell Valley Recycling at 754-9773. The recycling center is open from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturdays. Editor's Note: The organizers of the recycling site in the Red Apple Parking lot in Lovell ask those recycling to not throw boxes or bags of recycling on top of the trailers or on the ground, saying the practice is inconsiderate to the :,volunteers who take these ratrs to PoweU.  . :;,:' .... :'If the bins are full, th Sk that those recycling mate- rials bring the materials back another day. Leaving items outside of the bins is considered littering and is a legal of- fense that may incur a fine. Rocky Mountain Power will recycle old fridges, freezers If you could use some extra cash and more space for spring cleaning, you can definitely use a Rocky Mountain Power program that pays rewards for having old, energy- wasting refrigerators and freezers picked up and properly recycled. Offered throughout the year, the utility's "See ya lat- er" refrigerator program is especially popular right now as people tackle annual spring cleaning projects, according to Carol Hunter, Rocky Mountain Power vice president. If customers really don't need that older, extra refrig- erator or freezer chugging away in the garage or base- ment, they can call Rocky Mountain Power to schedule a time to have it picked up for free. In addition to the extra space they'll gain, participat- ing customers in Wyoming receive an incentive check for $40 in the mail a few weeks later. What's more, the aver- age program participant saves as much as $150 over the next year through lower household energy consumption. Older refrigerators and freezers kept in garages and base- ments are typically so outdated that they require up to three times more electricity to keep running than newer models built to higher energy efficiency standards. Scheduling a time for a home pickup is as easy as mak- ing a toll free call -- 1-866-899-5539 -- or an online visit to Rocky Mountain Power at rockymountainpower.net/re- cycle.
