6 I The Lovell Chronicle [ May 26, 2011 www. LovellCh ron icle. corn Derik Romero Melissa Ellis Schuylar Davis Susie Shumway Hunter Hinckley LJ Eli Moody Girls and Boys State reps prepare to delegate BY BRAD DEVEREAUX Chosen for leadership qualities by school ad- ministrators, juniors from Rocky Mountain High School and Lovell High School are preparing for the upcoming Girls State and Boys State events. The annual events are meant to allow students to experi- ence state government and develop leadership skills while meeting students from around Wyoming. Juniors Ethan Strom, son of Rudy and Dorine Strom, and Derik Romero, son of Zillarrael and Melin- da Romero, were selected to represent Rocky Moun- tain High School at Boys State this year. Eli Moody, son of Brad and Matty Moody and Hunter Hinck- ley, son of Ann and Schuy- ler Hinckley, will attend from Lovell High School. Selected to repre- sent LHS at Girls State this year are juniors Su- sie Shumway, daughter of Glynn and Joyce Collins, Melissa Ellis, daughter of Spencer and Annette El- lis and Schuylar Davis, daughter of Randy and Re- gena Davis. Both events will be held June 4-11. Boys State will be in Douglas and Girls State will be held in Powell. Most of the students said they aren't thinking of politics as a career choice, but that they are look- ing forward to the experi- ence and participating in a mock congress setup. "It will be interest- ing to learn about how the government of Wyoming works," Shumway said. "I think it will be fun." Ellis said her father, Spencer, is into politics, which is part of the reason she wants to participate. Students will run for offices and draft and de- bate legislation at the weeklong annual event. Some have yet to decide on a topic for the bills they will bring, but others are drafting legislation that deals with abusive rela- tionships, seat belt re- quirements for school- owned vehicles and giving state control to federally owned lands. Boys State incorpo- rates a military style drills as a part of the experience in addition to the congres- sional proceedings. Moody said he looks forward to both aspects of Boys State. 1-90 traffic routed through Greybull, Lovell areas If you've noticed a re- cent surge in traffic coming through Lovell, it's prob- ably due to vehicles being routed through Big Horn County to reach their fi- nal destinations following flooded roads in Montana. Due to flooding, a por- tion of 1-90 and the Decker Highway has been closed to motorists. The only de- tour route around the 1-90 closure from Sheridan is now U.S. 14 West of Day- ton over the mountain to Greybull and then north to Lovell following Hwy 310 into Montana. There is some flood- ing 16 miles into Montana but the major flooding is 26 miles into Montana and the road is completely impass- able in this area, according to the Wyoming Depart- ment of Transportation. There is no estimation at this time as to when 1-90 from Sheridan to Har- din or the Decker Highway .will reopen, according to WyDOT officials. WyDOT suggests the following detour routes during the closure: PASSENGER VEHICLE TRAFFIC From Sheridan go to Ranchester and use U.S. 14 west of Dayton over the Big Horn Mountain to Greybull. From Grey- bull take U.S. 310 north to Lovell and through Deav- er and Frannie into Mon- tana. Continue on U.S. 310 to Laurel. At Laurel take 1-90 East to Billings. SEMI TRUCK TRAFFIC From South Dakota take Highway 34 at White- wood to Bell Fourche. At Bell Fourche take High- way 212 to Broadus and then go north on Highway 59 to Miles City. At Miles City go west on 1-94 back to Billings. From Gillette take Hwy 59 north to Broadus and then go north on Hwy 59 to Miles City. At Miles City go West on 1-94 back to Billings. From Buffalo take U.S. 16 west over the Big Horn Mountains to Ten Sleep and then Worland. At Worland go north on U.S. 20/16 to Greybull. From Greybull take U.S. 310 north to Lovell through Deaver and Frannie into Montana. Continue on U.S. 310 to Laurel. At Laurel take 1-90 east to Billings.
