New utility license to include flat fee BY KARLA POMEROY The Big Horn County commissioners reviewed a draft of a new utility license last Tuesday, May 18, where the county would charge a flat $300 fee for any utility license. .\\; antmlpated, Bridges said the new license also outlines the procedure and possible liqui- dated damages if a road clo- sure goes beyond the request made in the application. In other business last week: Engineer Willie Bridge .. : The .commissioners said the fee would help covdr 'Jgreed' t0' 'zdnsfer  $6,000 costs of inspections that are  m the general fund to the required for any utility ease- ment regardless of the type of utility. Cut fees remain at $1,000 with a $2,000 bond, he said. The new license also outlines requirements for repairing a gravel road and leaves in the requirement to bore under a paved road if possible before cutting a road. After some problems earlier this year where a road was closed longer than coroner's budget. The coro- ner is over budget in his au- topsy line item. Bridges and Road Foreman Jerry Denniston discussed work on the Cold Springs Road. It was de- cided to try and make the project a two-year project rather than try and get it all done in one year. They will complete the work on Road 52 with the Division of State Parks and Cultural Resources assisting with fi- nancing materials since the road goes into the camp- grounds at the Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site. Bridges reported that it will be best to rebid the Washington Park restroom project with the additional funds from the Lovell Li- brary project now available. Commissioner Jerry Ewen asked that the new rest- room be designed to allow it to be heated at a later time to make it a year-round bathroom. The commission- ers signed the cooperative agreement with the Wyo- ming Department of Trans- portation for the South Airport and Rest Area Plan- ning Grant, which includes looking at moving the mu- seum to the rest area.

AMT3 Gregory Sykes (left) and AET3 Matthew Lotz, both of Air Station Kodiak, observe ice conditions in the Arctic from the rear of a Kodiak-based HC-130 Hercules aircraft during an Arctic Domain Awareness flight on April 13. The Coast Guard assisted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration with  gathering air samples during the flight for a long-term record they are building. Lovell resident working with coast guard in Alaska The crew of an HC- 130 Hercules aircraft from Air Station Kodiak flew an Arctic Domain Awareness flight over Alaska's north- ern coastline to assess the winter ice buildup in the re- gion and provide additional joint and international ser- vice personnel and govern- ment researchers with a firsthand look at the Arctic April 13. Among the crew, serv- ing in the loadmaster po- sition, was Aviation Main- tenance Technician 3rd Class Gregory Sykes, 24, of Lovell, according to a U.S. Coast Guard press release. Sykes is serving a three- year tour in Kodiak. He has previously served at a surf boat sta- tion in North Bend, Ore., and aboard the Bahrain- based Coast Guard Cut- :: ter Baranof for a year in the Arabian Gulf at Pa- trol Forces Southwest Asia in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Endur- ing Freedom. Kodiak is his first unit since graduating from a Coast Guard avia- tion technical school in Elizabeth City, N.C. Sykes has earned a number of qualifications at a junior rank, becoming a qualified aircrewman, loadmaster, dropmaster, dropmaster instructor and security sys- tems operator. Arctic Domain Aware- ness flights provide vis- ibility on seasonal mining operations and coastal ero- sion while supporting the Coast Guard's Homeland Security mission, maritime domain awareness and science research, as well as testing personnel and equipment capabilities, identifying challenges and surveying sea ice. During the flight the crew observed ice condi- tions and vessel traffic at the northern Alaska lati- tudes. The Coast Guard as- sisted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis- tration with gathering air samples during the flight for a long-term record they are building. The research- ers are building a record of baseline CO2 and methane emission levels for the re- gion that they can measure future readings against. Sykes will serve at least one more year in Alas- ka prior to transferring and continuing his Coast Guard aviation career. He hopes to remain in the HC- 130 aircraft community. In his spare time he is an avid outdoor athlete and takes advantage of the Kodiak area to hike, ski, fish and volunteer. He recently took up sea kayaking. Westpoint student tells his story BY BRAD DEVEREAUX Students who are inter- ested in joining the armed forces and also get a college education have several op- tions. For students who want to test their mental and physical strength at the highest level, the Mili- tary Academy at Westpoint is a school that has been teaching Americans to be soldiers passionate about Duty, Honor and Country for more than 200 years. Ted Scott was at Lovell High School Wednesday, May 19, to speak to stu- dents about his experi- ences while attending Westpoint. He gave pre- sentations and held ques- tion-and-answer sessions in Lovell classrooms. Scott just completed Ted Scott his second year at the acad- emy and told students the school offers "great experi- ence, great opportunities and a great education." Several things separate Westpoint from normal colleges, Scott said, from waking early in the morn- ing and requiring physical activities to offering differ- ent classes including de- fense strategic strategy, counter insurgency and counter terrorism. Scott is a double major in defense strategic studies and Rus- sian. Westpoint graduates are commissioned the rank of Second Lieutenant in the Army, and they are committed to at least five years of service follow- ing graduation. Scott said he plans to stay in lon- ger than five years as the school then pays for grad- uate school with a further commitment. Scott hopes to use his training to become a for- eign area officer, stationed in a foreign country and serving as the country's military ambassador to the U.S. Army. Businesses recognize the leadership taught at Westpoint, Scott said, but the application process is not easy. Applicants must pass a physical test, have a minimum score of 25 on the ACT, and a rec- ommendation from a con- gressman before their ap- plication is sent to the admissions office at West- point. If accepted, room, board and tuition is paid for by the school. Scott, a 2008 Greybull High School graduate, plans to graduate from Westpoint in 2012.
