June 19, 2014 1 The Lovell Chronicle 1 3 iiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiii COWLEY BALLPARK SEEKS GRANT continued from page one walking and jogging. Each lap would be about 400 me- ters, he said. The skating rink will feature a six-inch wall and a liner with hockey lines on it. The rink will be laid and tacked down once the grass goes dormant in the late fall, then removed in the spring. Adding the rink will allow the baseball park to be used more than three or four months a year, the mayor added. At a cost of $12,000, the rink will be the last phase of the multi-faceted project, Peterson said. "This project makes the park a 12-month park, which is kind of unique in the Basin," he said. The top priority is the lights, and bids should be let this fall, Peterson noted, after the grant money is ap- propriated on July 1. Pry- or Mountain Engineering of Cowley is the engineer for the South Park Project. BOON TO BASEBALL Senior League Base- ball Manager Ray Peter- son said the project should enhance baseball in North Big Horn County. He said he hopes that bids for the lights come in below the projected $250,000, which might allow at least ma- terials to be purchased for a planned indoor batting cage just beyond dead cen- terfield, which would also provide a hitting backdrop when viewed from home plate. It will be exciting to have lights at the ballfield, Ray said, and he plans to have a ceremony at the first night game thanking ev- eryone who donated to the project, such as the Burl- ington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad, which contrib- uted $10,000 toward the lights. Joel Peterson said he hopes the entire park will help halt the attrition that is taking place as ballplay- ers grow older. He said there are 212 kids playing Little League baseball, and Ray Peterson said there are only around 30 total play- ing Babe Ruth and Legion ball. With youths wanting to work, having night prac- tices and games will allow players to work during the day and participate in base- ball at night, both Peter- sons said. "I'd like to see two, three or four Babe Ruth teams like their used to be," Joel said, and Ray add- ed that it would be nice to have a developmental "B" Legion team. Night baseball also will allow more adult volun- teers to participate in the programs after a workday, the Petersons said, Ray Peterson said he has encouraged the Town of Lovell to construct a Babe Ruth field in town, so there would be two regula- tion-sized ballparks in the area, which would enhance practices and game sched- uling. Lovell is currently in the planning stage. ENHANCED NEIGHBORHOOD Joel Peterson said the South Park Project will dovetail nicely with planned improvements to 4th South including water and sew- er lines, street resurfacing and new sidewalks, curb and gutter, plus parking for the ballpark along the north and west sides. The mayor would also like to see restrooms even- tually added near the picnic/ playground area. The cur- rent concession stand could be used not just during baseball games but also for the splash park and, during the winter, the ice rink and sledding hill, tying the en- tire project together. "This will make an en- tire package," Peterson said. "It will allow everyone to come and participate. The young kids can play in the splash park while the older kids play baseball. I would love to see girls soft- bail, too. "This is just the start- ing point. I would love to see lights around the Lit- tle League field so there could be a fast-pitch soft- ball league." ONCE UPON A TIME continued from page one Absaroka Mountain Thun- der cloggers and Olivia Frost singing "Landslide." After intermission and the third act of the Not-So- Grimm Tales, Rick Banks, Wade Averett and Scott Watson will act to "Smart Dressed Man" in the style of Duck Dynasty and the Illusion Dancers - Desiree Amber Felkins, Jill Car- penter, Adrian Mangus, Rachel Simmons, Lara- Lee Reber, Melissa Wolv- ington and Lauren Shum- way - will dance to "Cruela De-Vii." Brett Crosby will sing "Good Old Humble Cowboy" and Ashley Steenbakkers, Whitney Grant, Kaitlyn Grant, Jordan Harper and Marissa Parks will dance to "The Glow." Emily and Sar- ah Browning will sing "Let It Go." The Follies will con- clude with the Rose City Rockettes dancing to "Some- day My Prince Will Come." Rockettes are Ashley Steen- bakkers, Amber Mayes, Mya Meier, Kendra Price, Heather Bartling, Emilee Bryson, Maddie Crawford and Lacey Johnson. Desiree Crosby and Cristy Jameson are helping Bush with the Follies. Ron- da Schroeder will paint a mural for the show. FILM FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND continued from page one it comes") about a wom- an waiting at home for her husband or boyfriend and realizing there's something in the house, and it isn't him. "Both of these made me jump and raised the hair on the back of my neck," Zeller said. He emphasized that the late Friday block is recommended for older audiences. Saturday from 3 to 4:30 - Family Friendly Films. The block includes three of the four animations accept- ed by the festival as well as "Show and Tell" about a boy who tried to top the best show and tell he's ever seen. Saturday from 7-9 - A Mixed Bag of Treats. High- lights include "The Tele- graph Man" about a man who delivers telegrams and must endure the emotional response from people when the news is bad and "Ab- saroka" by Cody filmmak: er Patrick Mignano, which was filmed in the Big Horn Basin. "Malpractice" from the Vancouver Film School is a humorous film similar to an episode of the TV comedy show "Scrubs," Zeller said. Zeller encourages peo- ple to attend as many blocks as they can. "People who just show up Saturday night will wish they could have seen more of the film festival," Zeller predicted. "People often say that. "Thursd.::aght there are so many gSJct films. Fri- day night there are so many good films." FANS SPEAK OUT Some fans of the film festival attend almost every year. "I think it's fun to see other people's creativity. I do enjoy that," said Lori- lyn Beck of Lovell. "It's fun to see what people come up with. "I told someone at the college (NWC) about it who had never been there. I said these are shorts. If you don't like one, there will be another one soon. If you do like one, you'd wonder if it will go on (and be made into a feature film). It's interest- ing to learn about the whole movie-making process." Having examined the lineup for this year's festi- val, Beck said she's looking forward to the festival.: "I'm particularly excit- ed this year. A lot of them have already won awards," she said. "When you think about it, it really is a big deal in the movie world, even though we're in a lit- tle town. "I wish more people would come." Brian Dickson said it's good to see the works of young filmmakers. "Some people may ex- pect an a Academy Award film and they're not," he said. "But you have to start somewhere in a film career. What a great opportunity for filmmakers, "If there's one on there that you're not enjoying, go get some popcorn and come back. I've not enjoyed every one I've seen." Dickson said he's glad to have the festival in town. "I just really appreci- ate Jason and his enthusi- asm on this and his desire to make it an annual event in town," Dickson said. "I think people will really en- joy it." Rex Myers of Powell and his wife Susan Rich- ards have been to the last three years of the festival. "We think it's one of the most entertaining evenings of the year," Myers said. "The selections are wonder- ful. That doesn't mean we like all of them. This is the sort of thing you only get in the big city. It's wonderful- ly broad and diverse, great entertainment. "We've lived other plac- es and have gone to the- aters that do foreign films. Where can you see foreign films anywhere else in Wy- oming or even Billings for that matter? And here they are." Myers, an adjunct pro- fessor at NWC, said he agrees with the "give it a try" mantra ,of this year's festival. 'It's a good phrase," he said., "When I peddle the idea on campus, I say (to colleagues), Zou ought to go and try it.' "It's entertaining and it's just great to see all of the wonderful things peo- ple are doing with film out there. It's not Hollywood --the standard, formula- ic thing you get from Hol: lywood. People come back and say Wow!' "We even like to go in ,the spring and watch the %est-of-the-festivai section." Dr. David Hoffman is now certified to do D.O.T. physicals.
