June 18, 2015 I The Lovell Chronicle I 5 Japanese teaching fellow coming to Northwest College in August Natsuki Kobayashi from Nagano, Japan, will start a year-long teaching fellow- ship at Northwest College in August and become the first resident of the college&apos;s new Intercultural House. Kobayashi holds a bach- elor's degree in sports and health from Niigata Univer- sity and certifications as an athletic trainer and person- al trainer. Interestingly, her Palates and English stud- ies were undertaken in the United States. The Big Horn Basin community will have sev- eral opportunities to meet Kobayashi during her resi- dency. She'll be enrolled in NWC classes and featured in public programs through- out her stay, and she will also team-teach Japanese language studies with MilD Asay, an ESL instructor at NWC. "Natsuki's contributions will add challenging but re- warding enrichment to our already-popular Japanese NATSUKI KOBAYASH I language classes," Asay said. A Cowley native, Asay lived in Tokyo for 18 years and said he is eager to aug- ment this cultural dimen- sion to his students' experi- ence of the language. Intercultural Program Manager Emelee Volden concurred, saying in addi- tion to Kobayashi's contri- butions to NWC's newest language program, her year-long residency will be a fitting way to launch the college's new Intercultural House. "The Intercultural House will provide numer- ous opportunities for cultur- al exchange," Volden said. "And having a fellow-in-res- idence from Japan will give NWC students and commu- nity members opportuni- ty for more in-depth explo- ration of East Asia and the Japanese language." Kobayashi and Asay will team-teach First Year Japanese I from 11-11:50 a.m. Monday through Thursday beginning August 24. Second Year Japanese II is offered from 2-2:50 p.m. the same days. Community members interested in au- diting or enrolling can call 307-754-6073 to register. Kobayashi's fellowship was negotiated through the Alliance for Language Learning and Educational Exchange. Police Report Police investigate report of concealed weapon at town meeting The Lovell Police De- partment received the fol- lowing calls for the week of June 9 - 16: June 9: A motorist accused her ex-boyfriend of stalking and trying to run her off the road. An officer made con- tact with both parties and explained state statutes to them, which seemed to calm the situation. June 10: A resident report- ed an individual who was impaired and incoherent. Police were unable to locate the man. A business owner re- ported a man wearing a woman's bra reading, what appeared to be por- nography in public. The matter is under investi- gation. A resident complained that a group of children were making strange noises near his property. Police patrolled the area on foot, but were unable to find the children. June 11: Police investigat- ed a report of an individu- al who brought a concealed weapon to a recent meeting at Town Hall. Police spoke to the man and explained to him that, though no con- cealed carry permit is re- quired in Wyoming, it is il- legal to carry a concealed weapon into government meetings. A verbal warning was issued. Officers responded to a report of vandalism by a resident who said an um- brella and some plants were knocked over on her property during the night. An officer respond- ed but determined that the incident was caused by the wind. Police responded to a ver- bal brawl at a local bar but were unable to locate the parties involved.

The individual was warned that it was a violation of a town ordinance similar to litter- ing but specifically apply- ing to pets.

Numerous warnings issued for weeds and junk vehicles BY PA'I-rl CARPENTER If the weeds in your yard are growing up around your unlicensed vehicles, don't be surprised if you re- ceive a warning letter from the Lovell Police Dept. ask- ing you to clean up your yard. It's the law in Lovell that property owners and residents must control weeds on their property and there is also an ordi- nance specifying that not more than one unlicensed or "junk" vehicle can be kept on a residential prop- erty, and that vehicle must be covered or kept in a garage. Failure to comply with either ordinance can result in stiff fines. In the case of junk vehicles, the offend- ing party could be liable for costs of abatement and a fine of up to $750 for each day beyond a 14-day warn- ing period. Residents vio- lating the weed ordinance face fines of up to $750 plus the cost of removing weeds, if they do not comply with- in 14 days of receiving the warning. The town's weed and junk ordinance states that "It shall be the duty of every person, whether owner, les- see or renter of any vacant lot, building or premises, drive-ins, dwelling hous- es, apartments, tenements or other establishment at all times to maintain their premises including the al- ley adjacent to said prem- ises and including areas between the curb and prop- erty line in a clean, order- ly condition, free of any un- sightly growth of weeds." Ifa property i s reported as being unsightly, a police officer will personally veri- fy the complaint, then de- liver a written letter to the person residing at the ad- dress asking them to com- ply with the ordinance. In cases where the property is vacant, a notice is delivered to the owner by certified mail. If the party served does not comply within 14 days, a citation is issued and they must answer to a judge. The Lovell Police De- partment is already gently reminding residents of their responsibility to comply by serving written notice to those who don't. Lovell Po- lice Sergeant Steve Allred said those cited must com- ply or face fines. Big Horn Basin Outlook Weekend Outlook Aud% Corners CalP=[your oer in now and pick it up at the drive through!

Police enforcement to increase for warrants BY PATrl CARPENTER If you have outstand- ing municipal court war- rant, it's a good time to pay up. According to Lovell Po- lice Sergeant Steve Allred, the department will be in- creasing enforcement of outstanding municipal court warrants, beginning this week. Allred said some of the warrants are up to 10 years old, with outstand- ing fees ranging from $10 to $1,000. He said many of the warrants are for fail- ure to pay fines or failure to appear in court. With more than 200 warrants on record, police plan to step up enforcement with in- creased vigilance and ar- rests when necessary, said Allred. "This is an on-go- ing problem that needs to be resolved," said Allred. "People need to under- stand that these warrants are a serious issue that can and will result in arrest." Allred said since war- rants are a matter of public record, individuals unsure of whether they have one can contact police dispatch or the clerk of the munici- pal court to find out if they have any outstanding. He added that the fine can be paid directly to dispatch and the warrant will be re- moved immediately once it is paid. "We're trying to take the most appropriate steps to get these warrants re- solved," explained Allred. "Our goal is to advise peo- ple in advance how they can take care of the war- rants, so further steps are not required. "By allowing people to be proactive, it allows them to take care of the war- rants and saves them from further consequences." Allred said a list of peo- ple who have outstanding warrants will be published in the Lovell Chronicle in the near future. Those who have paid their fines will not appear on the list.
