2 I The Lovell Chronicle I June 14, 2012 PATTI CARPENTER Tracey Walker performs a lung function test on Rob Johnson during a trial run of new portable spirometry equipment last week at the Western Sugar Factory in Lovell. Hospital tries out new lung testing equipment BY PA'B'I CARPENTER On May 31, North Big Horn Hospital performed a trial run of its on-site lung function testing (spirome- try) system at the Western Sugar factory in Lovell. The screening is part of a respi- ratory screening that meets OSHA requirements for fac- tory workers who use cer- tain types of facemasks in their work. North Big Horn Hospital has been provid- ing this basic spirometry in the hospital as an outpa- tient service, but recently purchased new equipment that is portable and makes on-site testing possible. "This year we have a new portable unit and the respiratory department thought they could be more efficient by going on site to do the testing," explained Tracey Walker, Director of Cardiopulmonary Services for North Big Horn Hospi- tat. "Western Sugar was kind enough to agree to the trial. There was positive feedback from the West- ern Sugar employees and I think this was successful. We plan on doing this again in the future." The new equipment was purchased in September and was paid for by the North Big Horn Hospital Faun- dation with funds raised at their annual golf tourna- ment. The old spirometer was several years old and had become unreliable. "The Respiratory Department appreciates having the new unit, and the possibility of going out to our local businesses to do this testing is very excit- ing," said Walker. The hospital staff also uses the equipment for both inpatient and outpatient testing for asthma, chronic lung disease and it is con- sidered a diagnostic tool for other lung diseases. It can also be used to monitor the progression of a lung dis- ease process, which helps doctors see if medication or treatment is helping or if the disease is worsening.

June 23, 1935 - May 4, 2012 Ralph E. Harmon of Burbank, Calif., died in the early morning hours of May 4, 2012, following compli- cations from extensive sur- gery. Mr. Harmon was born June 23, 1935, to Samuel Cove and Hilma Nicholls Harmon in Lovell. His ed- ucation began in Wyoming and continued in Califor- nia through high school. In post-secondary stud- ies Ralph earned degrees in electronics, mechanical engineering and business management. Ralph began work- ing for Bendix Corp. as a draftsman while still in high school, moving up the ranks within the company as his talents were recog- nized. The corporation as- sisted him through classes of higher learning. Bendix Corp. became Allied Signal and finally Honeywell. Dur- ing his 40-plus-year career he helped develop various programs that produced U.S. missiles and the jet fighter F-111. His ability to work with people and a good work ethic gained for him the "problem solver" reputation. He served during the Ko- rean War in the U.S. Army, honorably discharged as a staff sergeant. He worked with his army buddies in establishing orphanages for numerous Korean/Ameri- can homeless children. Ralph married Gall V. Paul in August of 1959. Three children came to this union: twin boys John Car- lin and Paul Allen, and a daughter, Melinda Su- zanne. The Harmon home was open to foster children, as well. Gall died in Janu- ary of 1995. Football, baseball and golf were lifetime loves for Ralph. He joined baseball or softball teams every sea- son as long as he was physi- cally able. He coached ball teams even longer, having a positive influence on many young men over the years. He coached Mindy's softball teams while she enjoyed the game. Ralph married Ban- nie Paul on April 30, 1999. They were able to have 13 good years together before his passing. He was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife and his two sons, John and Paul Harmon. He is survived and grieved for by his wife, Bonnie; his daughter, Melinda (Perry) Satterlee; four grandchil- dren: Josh, Stiles, Jake and Paige Satterlee of Washing- ton State; a step-daughter, Juliana Penman of Ken- tucky; his sister, Myrna (William) Despain of Mink Creek, Idaho; four neph- ews, Daniel, Bruce, Jason and Blaine Jolley and their spouses; one niece, Nicole Kojakanian, and numerous grandnieces and nephews, who all admired and loved their Uncle Ralph. He will be missed by many first and second cousins and friends whose lives he has touched. Cremation has taken place in California. A small stone in his remembrance is placed near the remains of his father in the Lovell Cemetery.
