PARKING LIMITED AT FIREWORKS DISPLAY continued from page 1 to help with parking. So, we are going to take this very seriously this year and if the parking attendant says 'park here' that is where you have to park." Fleming said a lot of resource damage in the park last year was due to the fact that people ignored the instructions of the parking attendants and parked in off road areas. Fleming said park service employees have already barricaded some of those areas and there will also be temporary fencing in place to block especially sensitive areas. Moore described the barricades as log booms that look like big telephone poles. "The goal of blocking these areas is to prevent more resource damage," said Moore. "We hope that people will not attempt to go over the barricades. Most vehicles would not be able to successfully do that anyway. "Horseshoe Bend is sparse enough as it is, in terms of vegetation, so we want to keep what we have there and we want to keep it as natural as possible. Our biggest concern, that is because we have reduced the amount of parking, we are going to meet capacity very quickly and people need to understand that when that happens they will need to watch the Visitors to the area arespends more than $10,000 also warned that parkingon fireworks for the event, and other traffic laws which is funded entirely will be strictly enforced, by donations. Chief Jim in particular speeding, passing and driving under the influence. "Some of the biggest problems we've had in the past is with people being Minchow said firefighters will be asking for donations, which are very much needed this year to support the cost of hiring a professional fireworks company to put fireworks from the side of impatient on their way the road on Highway 37."home," said Sheriff Ken Fleming addea that last Blackburn. "This year minute volunteers to help with parking are welcome and would be very much appreciated. "We have contacted several different organizations this year to help with the parking but have been unsuccessful in getting help, but if there are people who would like to come and help with parking that would be great," she said. "People who would like to help can meet us at the visitors center at 3 o'clock." Fleming said many families carpool to the area to watch the fireworks and that is encouraged, especially in light of the parking situation this year. we will have no-passing signage on the road and this will be strictly enforced, since it has been a major cause of accidents in the past." Blackburn added that he is proud of the fact that the event has been accident- free for about seven years and he plans to keep it that way by having a deputy stationed around every half mile along Highway 37. Fleming and Blackburn said all of the public agencies involved in the event want people to enjoy the fireworks and that can best be achieved if everyone follows the rules. Each year, the Lovell Volunteer Fire District on the display. Donations can also be mailed to or dropped offat the Fire Hall, which is located at 314 Nevada Avenue in Lovell. SLIB GRANTS continued from page 1 it could be a month to a month and a half before the major construction begins. The project should be mostly finished by early fall and completed by mid-No- vember, Emmett said. The Town of Greybull also received a $320,000 Community Enhancement Grant for improvements to the Herb Asp Community Center. The second annual Par- ents and Friends of the Blue Jackets Golf Tourna- ment will be held on, Sat- urday, July 19, at Foster Gulch Golf Course. The tournament will be a three- man scramble. The tournament will include various prizes such as gift certificates, cash and other donated items. "Sweetheart" raffle tickets will also be sold for $10 to win a special night out for two. All proceeds from the tournament will go to the Lovell FFA Chapter. The funds are used by the chap- ter to provide scholarships to active members, covering costs for members to attend National FFA Convention and to help with expenses associated with other lead- ership events as needed. Last year's tournament exceeded expectations and was one of the reasons the Lovell FFA Chapter was named Innovative Chapter of the Year at the 2014 Wy- oming State Convention. "This award was a great honor and could not have been possible without the Parents and Friends of the Blue Jackets support group and the many sup- porters throughout the Big Horn Basin who donated and came to play golf," said Chapter President Kassi Renner. The entry fee is $30 and includes a meal provided by the group. Teams can reg- ister for the tournament during the Mustang Day's Golf Tournament on June 28 or through the following contact information: Janna Abraham at 307-899-0285 or email p.f.bluejackets@ gmail.com.
