CLE May 22, 2014 I The Lovell Chronicle I 3.2 Cowley News Former Cowley resident forms special knitting group BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 There is an article on Facebook about Becky Knip- pel and the group of women who are Mukwonago, Wis. knitters who knit an item called "Breast Friends." Becky grew up in Cowley and is the daughter of Shir- ley Lewis and the late Rich- ard (Dick) Busteed. The article stated that a group of about a dozen women meet every other week to knit. Becky and the group knit for a purpose and Becky brought the idea to the ladies. "I happened to visit my morn in Wyoming and my cousin, who is an X-ray tech, had run into a lady who had breast friends," she said. "She was really tickled with them, and she had gotten them from a project called Bosom Buddies in Casper. She gave me the pattern, and I brought it back and asked these guys if they would like to do it." That is how the proj- ect got started. The knitters work hard to knit anatomi- cally correct breasts for can- cer survivors who may have had a mastectomy. Two ladies from Muk- wonago got together to knit and started discussing knit- ting projects and began their own group. They called everyone who knew how to knit and others joined when they heard about it. The women are contributing to a great cause and an option that may be more comfort- able for some women. Becky said they were able to give one pair to a woman who was so thrilled to wear them because they are washable and soft. The woman called Becky to tell her how thankful she was to have the chance to wear them. She said she spent a lot of money on special bras and prosthetics in the past but now they are just put away in her closet. The group wants to give their creations away to those who can benefit from them. They welcome the wom- en who knit to their group and to be able to be a part of Breast Friends. If anyone wants to get more informa- tion they can email Becky at beckyrae50@gmail.com. *** Frank and Cora Wein- and are a young couple who bought Ruth Tippetts' home behind my house. They mar- ried and had their daughter Daizy, a beautiful addition to their lives. She was just 22 months old when it was discovered that she had a tumor on her kidney and it was cancerous. The tumor weighed two pounds. The young family went to the Denver Children's Hospital where doctors re- moved her left kidney. For- tunately, the cancer was encapsulated and so began this family's journey with cancer. After her surgery Da- izy endured radiation for a week then chemothera- py for the next seven and a half months, and she braved the ordeal and illness that comes with chemo. She and her parents came to church every week and they lived their lives as normally as they could. Daizy is lucky she has such a large extend- ed family and cousins. As the family and the commu- nity watched and prayed, this little girl was sweet and good and even while ill she fought and overcame, and now her hair is growing back and is lovely. She has a new brother to love named Canyon and he is eight months old and is loved by all. What a mir- acle the family and all who, love her have witnessed. It almost overcomes one who contemplates what this family went through and endured with grace and a strong attitude, their faith and hope. She has her reg- ular checkups and they have been clear. The Make a Wish foun- dation in Wyoming is in Casper and Cora, her morn, applied online and were giv- en a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Fla. When she was inter- viewed and questioned about what she wanted to see at Disney World, she re- plied, Ninja, so her wish was granted. The family, includ- ing Grandmother Julie Ann Weinand, flew to Orlan- do and stayed in the Nick- lelodeon Suite and guess what it was decorated with? Yes, the Ninja Turtles. Right outside her room was a small swimming pool and play area and the suite was large enough to accom- modate Julie Ann, Frank, Cora, Canyon and Daizy. It was beautiful and the food was great and the family spent a wonderful week, and Daizy spent some time with the Ninjas. They also saw baby dol- phins, which swam right up to them, and killer whales and sea lions. They went to a pet show that includ- ed cats, dogs and a pig. The small children loved the roller coasters and the car- ousels. They also were able to see Dumbo and I believe ride on him. They enjoyed the Ani- mal Kingdom and went on an African safari on a truck and a wildlife preserve. Da- izy loved the gorillas. Their week was spent loving ev- ery minute of their days and evenings with the magical land of Disney. The only disappoint- ment to Daizy was that she wanted her cousins there also. Frank and Cora, the kids and all the cousins made her dreams come true after they got home by going to The Reef in Billings, and the whole Weinand fami- ly and all her cousins were treated to swimming, a pic- nic and a great day of being with family. So Daizy's wish- es were accomplished and her magical time continued. Molly Varney and Daniel Zeller Zeller, Varney to wed Eric and Sandy Var- ney of Worland have an- nounced the upcoming marriage of their daugh- ter, Molly Christina Var- ney, to Daniel Reiten Zeller, son of Gene and Virginia Zeller of Lovell. The couple will be sealed for time and all eternity in the Billings, Mont., LDS Temple on June 7, 2014. A reception will follow that evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lovell Community Center. Molly and Daniel live in Laramie, where both are students at the Uni- versity of Wyoming. Dan- iel is majoring in mechan- ical engineering, Molly in physical education. Byron News Local artist gives gift of roses to Byron moms BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 307-272-8979 pamhopk inson@gmail.com Artist Glen Harvey was busy carving during the winter months and his proj- ects included hand-carving 60 beautiful roses, which were given as Mother's Day gifts at the LDS Church on Sunday, May 11. I have shared stories about his wood carving in past columns. He usually portrays animals, but last winter he came up with the idea of making the roses. Every one is a full blossom rose in shades of pink with dusty green colored leaves. Each took at least 12 hours of carving and is one-of-a- kind piece of art. What a treasure for the moms and a wonderful act of service to the moth- ers in Byron. On behalf of the moms, thank you, Glen Harvey. A Byron High School graduate has moved back to town. Carl Doerr has a lock- smith business and has also built a successful book sell- ing business on Ebay. He has rented space in the old school building on Main Street just down the hall from the town recreation center. When he returns from Portland with his final load of books I will include more details about his work in my column. Welcome back, Carl. As you have noticed, along with the warmer weather and the greening up around town, the weeds are coming along nicely. On Wednesdays, from 3 to 5 p.m., anyone needing weed spray can pick it up at town hall at a substantially re- duced price since we are purchasing it in bulk. The Town also has weed spray- ers that can be checked out or you may bring your own container. Friday, May 30, begin- ning at 8 a.m., Big Horn County Weed and Pest will be in Byron to help iden- tify noxious weeds around our community. Any resi- dent who thinks they may have some can call Town Hall to get on the list. They will identify and spray the weeds and suggest spray for other problem areas. Saturday, May 31, is our community clean-up day. Participants should meet at Town Hall for juice and sweet rolls and get on a team to help around town. We will also meet at 1:30 p.m. for hot dogs and ham- burgers at Jones Park. The water slide will be up for the kids until 3 p.m. If you need help on clean-up day, please call Town Hall at 548-7490 and add your name and the nature of work to the list.. The Solid Waste Dept. has agreed to help haul large items on that day. It is said, "all work and no play makes us dull," so you are invited to work together and then party at the park and feel good about helping to spruce things up around town. l Advertise your business '1;':: ':ur$1ii u gour:ld iw)c u:tem:rs Debora Good 3 Agent 8 Box Lovell, WY 82431 Email: dgood@ bighorn federal.corn " Big Horn Co..t00 Public Health" Immunizations Pregnant Women's Medicaid F-.
