CHRONICLE June 11, 20i5 I The Lovell Chronicle 13 BY DAVID PECK Nick Tolman is step- ping down after two years at the helm of the Rocky Mountain High School mu- sic program to join the U.S. Army, play in a military band and have a bit of an adventure, he said in an in- terview last week. The move will allow him to play professionally and his family to explore a different part of the coun- try, or even the world, he said. "As a family we felt like we wanted to get out and experience some new things, have an adventure," he said. "I grew up in Ida- ho and have always lived in the Rocky Mountain West. "I had always known about the Army and the opportunities there. I de- cided to audition and see what happens. By the time I found out (about the audi- tion results) we had pretty much decided we wanted to do it." Nick and Allison Tol- man, the school nurse at Lovell High School and Lovell Middle School, have one son, Simon, age 15 months. Tolman said there are 29 active duty bands in the U.S. Army, and after coming in contact with an Army liaison (a recruiter and Army band member) he sent in some recordings and Byron News BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 307-272-8979 pamhopkinson@gmail.com Satuxday morning the recreation department's football field was flooded and looked like a mirror re- flecting the blue sky. It had been flooded for a dual pur- pose, to water the grass and to provide some fun for local kids and some parents who showed up to participate. Starting at 9 a.m there was a handful of early birds. The water was cold, but no one seemed to care. As the sun did its duty and warmed things up a little, more ar- rived. By midmorning, the count was 35 kids and par- ents splashing, chasing multicolored balls through "croquet" stands that were fashioned from Hula-Hoops cut in half, throwing Fris- bees and racing through the water. At about 10:30 it was time for a refreshment break, which included ice water, Gatorade, pop and some sugar (candy) for more new ' I DAVID PECK Rocky Mountain music director Nick Tolman plays the electric bass during a recent concert at Rocky Mountain Middle/High School. He is now off to the U.S. Army to perform with an Army band. the liaison flew in to meet with him in Powell. Tolman auditioned on trombone, guitar and bass and was recommended by the liai- son to a hiring board, which ultimately accepted him. He will begin basic training in South Caroli- na on June 15 and after 10 weeks of basic will move on to Virginia Beach for 10 more weeks at the Army School of Music where he will train how to be an Army musician. During that time Tol- man will be stationed with one of the 29 Army bands. He noted that five of the bands are located overseas, and he would love to play with a band in Germany or Belgium. quick energy. After about 20 minutes playing with "Lambo," the little lamb who followed her kids to school for play and to soak up some sun while lying on beach towels, back into the water they went for more. By noon it was over. Kids went home wet and tired. If anyone knows who owns a large friendly black lab without any identifi- cation and wearing no col- lar, he joined in the fun and quickly dispatched the beach balls and the brightly colored balls with his bite. It was great fun for him, but unfortunately those items were purchased for this and future activities. He would have returned home wet and also tired from his morning activity. I hope you come for the next water ac- tivity day, but Mr. Friend- ly (the lab) needs to stay home. There were more than 2,000 hits on social me- dia about the activity, and there were several requests nto day of fun to please plan a "do over," so the Byron Recreation Department will be spon- soring another water event on June 20 if all the details can be coordinated. Watch for information and check the classified ads for more information. There will be a break from water activities un- til after Byron Days July 6 through 11. However, don't forget that there is a free outdoor family movie night coming up at the recre- ation department's football field on June 15, with no flooding. Bring your blan- ket or lawn chair and join in the fun at 8:30 p.m. I being on hand for whatev- er was needed. Your help was noted and appreciated. That includes Becky Bates, Alexis Edwards, Summer Lofgran, Kelly and Derek Morgan and any others who helped. Thank you for your time, effort and support of this activity. A few months ago I wrote about Mel Robison and his military experi- ence during World War II. I would like to feature oth- er Byronites who served by writing about them in the Byron News. If you had a relative that was in one of the wars and you have any have heard talk of a water/ stories movie night combo later in the summer, where partic- ipants can bring an inflat- able floater or inner tube and enjoy a beach movie. Jaws? Eeek? Who knows what may happen. Thanks to the volun- teers who came early to help with setup, getting waivers signed, handing out treats and, in general, or memories you could share, please con- tact me at the above email address. Also, although I try to be attentive and note what is happening around the community, I know there are things that are missed. So, if you have a fami- ly event or something you would like to share, please contact me. Thanks.

SHELLY HEIDEN AND RUDY STROM Cowley News Cowley couple BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 307-548-6901 May was a busy month for Collin and Pat Stevens. The couple went to two graduations and experi- enced a delightful cruise to Alaska for a week. Collin and Pat first at- tended the college grad- uation of Steven Corr Jr. He lives in Grand Junc- tion, Colo and graduated from Mesa University with a bachelor's degree in geo science. Most of us probably re- member Steven, who lived with his grandparents for two years and graduated from Rocky Mountain High School. He was a delightful student, very good-looking and had a personality plus. I subbed for Pat Davis in English during those two years and after Steven ad- justed to our small school he had many friends. He was very intelligent and it was a joy to know him. We were glad he was here in our school and in the community. The next graduation the Stevens went to was for their son Brian, who earned his doctorate in entomology from the University of Wy- oming. He and his wife La- Nessa and three children Porter, Lindsay and Kaden live in St. George, Utah. Collin and Pat's next on cruise adventure was a cruise to Alaska for a week. They cruised down the coast of Alaska and saw beautiful scenery and wildlife. They said the food was good and the trip was fantastic. Pat has a cousin in Juneau and they visited with him and his wife. Kathy and Pete treated them to a day of whale watching on his per- sonal boat. The late Evelyn King had a house on a corner lot of Main Street, and after her death Collin and Pat had the old home razed and redid the whole area into a park with the title "Grand- ma's Corner of Heaven." The lawn is beautiful and there is a table frr people to stop and eat, rest or just enjoy the view. They have supplied it with wonderful items such as flowers and statues. They made the whole corner into a sort of paradise. It is a beautiful, restful place. There is a free library there filled with books, and people can take a few or one and replace it with an- other book and it has been very successful. Pat said that they are now having a little addition to the free library that will be just for the children, so if you have some children's books you don't need anymore you can donate them to the library. ~,: ~. : Y<>[7 Lovell Building Center BBM Construction Haskell's Furniture & Flooring Brenton Nuttall Lights & Such Brosius Electric Jeremy Crippen Vickie Tippetts J-he Hen House La De Da Valley Floral & Gifts KC Hardware and my good friend Brad Iz-i. dt CY O ictL Wili fie doing for mosquitoes in the early morning hours, weather permitting, or the next available day.
