P CHRONICLE Neighborhood Watch open house highlights accomplishments of group BY RYAN FITZMAURICE A May 18 neighborhood watch open house, in By- ron capped a busy year and a half for the organization in coordination with the Big Horn County Sheriff‘s Department. Around 50 attend— ed the open house, where presentations on K—9 units, fingerprinting and DNA, search and rescue, emer— gency vehicle protocol, se— nior citizen safety, the color red program and local EMS volunteer programs were made to the community. “We meet monthly, and in these monthly meet— ings, we talk about dif— ferent types of safety, the neighborhood watch mod— el or the community watch model. It’s the police, com— munity and the citizens working to ether to ap— prove the li est le of their citizens,” Sherif Ken Black— burn said. “It’s not limited to just criminal activity, it’s also public safety.” Among the activities held by the neighborhood watch since its beginning in 2020 have been monthly presentations, which have included topics such as In— ternet crimes and scams, the sex offender regis— try and human trafficking, emergency management services, fire prevention and home safety and sui— cide awareness. Apart from the month- ly presentations, the group, in partnership with the Bifg Horn County Sher- if s Department, donat— ed 418 items to the Lovell Fire Department food drive in 2020, hun blue ban— ners and blue ights on the RYAN FITZMAURICE Byron residents enjoy 'a meal of Slopp J oes during the neighborhood watch open house, held May 18.

Perhaps most sig- nificantly, the group has played a role in creating a volunteer first respond— er force for the Byron and Cowley areas. “It gave us an opportu— nity to get to know our of- ficers, and our sheriff has been so great in supporting us and making sure we had the resources to start the group," Bern Mayor Pam Hopkinson said.

Because of COVID—19 and other circumstances, we did not have a chance to meet our new neigh— bors until recently. Now I can share about what love— ly people they are. Cardston George and Keath Fenton first met in Southern California, where they served mis— sions for the Church of Je— sus Christ of Latter—day Saints in 2012. On August 1, 2014, they were married in the Draper Temple in Utah. While Keath was pursuing. his music degree at BYU, Cardston managed a jew— elry store.

Cardston was keeping the same hours as her husband worked as a special ed paraprofessional. Her hob— bies include flower arrang- ing (making her own wed- ding bouquet), reading and collecting Christmas trees. Since- Mr. Fenton di— rected several musicals, Cardston assisted by do— ing hair and makeup for the actors. Keath compli— ments his wife by saying how good she is with eo— ple; his students love her, which I can understand, visiting this sweet, joyful young mother. She, in turn, tells me how talented her husband is, playing 12 dif— ferent instruments, a won- derful singer and a bak- er. He has made a total of three wedding cakes So far. One year ago, on June Vacant Land Pending Y Multi Unit - Active 23, they were blessed with a delightful baby girl named June. They take turns changing diapers and loving her as much as possible. They are very happy to be in Wyoming. They explain that there is a much better opportuni— ty for teachers here. Keath is now teaching band in Lovell. Since Cairdston was raised in Cody, she has a lot of family in this area and is happy to be closer to them. She is in the process of helping plan a huge fam— ily reunion for the George family, which will be held at Bear Lake in Utah. Since she is a~stay-at—home mom, she has time to make lots of phone calls for reserva- tions and planning. It has been an adjustment for her because she has al- ways worked outside of the home and likes to stay busy.

When Cardston’s great grandparents first came to Wyoming, they lived in a barracks at the reloca- tion camp. They later built a house and a dairy barn with wood reclaimed from the camp. Carston’s great-grand— mother, Evaleen George, at 97 years old, continues to live there today. She had eight children, and her children also had big fami— lies, including several sets of twins, which seems to run in the family — one reason, possibly, why it is such a big family reunion being planned. We want to welcome this sweet family to Cowley. We love you already!

Some have built a new home, and some have bought a home already waiting for them. I am slow on gettin around to visit with each amily to , introduce them, but I will start with my nearest new neighbors. Kim and Kirk Ohman and their children, Kamer— on, ready to start kinder- garten, and Khloe, the baby, moved into the green house that back in the ear- ly early days belonged to the Winzenrieds and later Mrs. Lilas Cowley and her three children. Cliff and Florence Asay and their large family moved into the residence after that. I told Kirk that their home held a lot of history and shared the times that I got in on at least watching the breadmaking and the but— ter-churning activities of the Asay family. I have admired the way Kim and Kirk jumped right into cleaning their yard. They are wor ing on a sys- tem to get the water to the very large front yard. Kameron is a smart and talkative boy and in— formed me that he knew Colton, who lives up the street, and played outside .1 AM ajyt ‘ Lovell Bible Church with my granddau hter Lily when she visite . He introduced his little sister to me. Kim is the daughter of long—time residents Pam and Joe Mooney. She met Kirk when he was in the Young Marines and her fa— ther Joe was his CO. Kirk was raised in Powell. His grandfather’s brother was Dr. Ohman, who used to live in Lovell. He told Kim that he would never move to Byron, but one should never say never. He admit- ted he was now very-happy to have settled here. Kim moved back to a place she enjoyed. She shared mem— ories of Cozzens Store and the candy, pop and hot dog trips. She remembered Dorothy and Mrs. Asay with fondness. Kirk grew up working with his dad on cars, trucks and bikes. He has a bike he is working on. By trade, he is a roofer and has worked in the contracting busi— ness in his adult years. He now works at Tractor Sup— ply and is the fix—it man for his grandparents” rent- als in Powell. Kim works as a direct care worker with adults with disabilities in home health care. It’s nice to haVe new families in town, and it is great to have someone come back home to be a part of their hometown community.
