12 I The Lovell Chronicle I June 28, 2012 BY PATTI CARPENTER Sixteen girls can call themselves "safe sitters" now after attending six hours of training over a two-day period at North Big Horn Hospital. Safe Sitter is a compre- hensive babysitting train- ing program created by Dr. Patricia A. Keener, a na- tionally recognized board certified pediatrician. The goal of the program is to make teens "better sitters today and better parents tomorrow." Organizers of the program claim more than 150 documented cas- es of lives saved by gradu- ates of the program. The program teaches teen babysitters how to deal with medical emer- gencies during the course of their duties as baby- sitters. In the workshop, teens are taught the latest guidelines of the Ameri- can Heart Association and American Academy of Pe- diatrics in a curriculum that includes CPR, chok- ing rescue and first aid techniques. Though not certified in these areas, the idea is to provide the young babysitters with enough information and basic skills to deal with many different medical emergencies. "Safe Sitter is a well- rounded youth develop- ment program with a med- ical basis and it teaches serious life and business skills in a fun way," said Executive Director Sally Herrholz. North Big Horn Hospi- tal recently became certi- fied to offer the course and hospital employees Trisha Mangus and Renae Mill- er received special train- ing qualifying them to teach the program. The program was offered for the first time this week and, according to hospi- tal spokesman Janet Ko- ritnik, the class filled up almost immediately and PATH CARPENTER A group of teen babysitters attended a course at North Big Horn Hospital this week to learn skills that will help them deal with medical emergencies that could happen while they are babysitting. there are almost enough "Instructors who preventing injuries in names on the waiting listteach the program to 11 their communities, but to fill another class al- - 14-year-olds find it re- they're just as excited to ready, warding to know they're know that other skills such as business, medical, personal safety and par- enting are being taught," said Herrholz. Students who became certified this time around included Heather Bartling, Alexis Ferguson, Char- mayne Fleming, Mariah Mader, Metya, Meyja and Mylee McArthur, Dela- nee Miller, Kelsie Mollett, Lily Myers, Siobhan. My- ers, Sami Newman, Eliza- beth Price, Hanna Sawa- ya, and Masey and Larissa Tippetts. All 16 girls who attended received special certificates upon comple- tion of the course. "We would like to offer this course at least a few times a year but may offer it again this summer since so many have expressed interest in it," said Korit- nik.

Ranger programs at Bighorn Canyon Rangers at Bighorn Canyon National Recre- ation Area have a variety of campground programs, guided tours and a speak- er series planned this sum- mer. Visitors to either the North District or South District will be able to en- joy campground programs every Saturday night on a range of topics as well as roving ranger programs throughout the park most days. Check locally for times and topics. In addi- tion, the South District will be presenting campground programs on Friday nights. The Summer Speakers Series will feature research- ers and special speakers at the Cal S. Taggart Bighorn Canyon Visitor Center in Lovell almost every Thurs- day at 7 p,m starting June, 28.through the end of July. Mac Blewer, a gradu- ate student, cultural geog- rapher and field researcher with the University of Wyo- ming's Geography Depart- ment and American Studies Program, will kick off Big- horn Canyon's speaker se- ries with two programs. At 4 p.m. Thursday, join Blewer as he discusses "The Lost Barracks of Heart Mountain." At the height of World War II, there were more than 380 barracks at the Heart Mountain Intern- ment Camp. After the con- flict's resolution, the site's barracks were sold, many of them at a dollar apiece to homesteaders, moved to new locations and used as homes and ranch struc- tures. Many vanished. Today, researchers, staff and volunteers from the University of Wyo- ming and the Heart Moun- tain Wyoming Foundation seek to uncover the fate of these historic structures on the greater Heart Moun- tain landscape and the sto- ries of the Heart Mountain homesteaders before they are lost in time. Blewer is interested in hearing your stories and learning about barracks that may have been moved to Lovell. At 7 p.m. Blewer will present "The Bandit In- vincible-, BuSh, Cassidy, An American :. Tradition." The name,"Butch Cassi- dy" means many things to many people. To some he was a Robin Hood figure and hero, to others a com- mon thief akin to a nation- al terrorist. Throughout the American West, residents and visitors encounter rep- resentations and remem- brances of Butch Cassidy, the renowned outlaw and famed leader of the Wild Bunch. In towns he robbed, in areas he ranched and in places he reputedly stayed along the Outlaw Trail, he has become an indelible part of the local heritage, folklore and history. As Butch Cas- sidy's great-grand-neph- ew, Bill Betenson, asserted, "Butch Cassidy slept every- where, robbed every town's bank and danced with ev- eryone's grandmother. Like Daniel Boone or Davy Crockett, he has become a part of our national story, part of America's invented tradition of who and what we are as a people. In addition to the speakers series, the follow- ing, programs will be pre- sented by Bighorn Canyon staff this weekend: June 29: Eddy Hulbert: (Silversmith of Hillsboro), Horseshoe Bend Camp- ground loop B Amphithe- ater, Ranger Danielle Peck, 8 p.m June 30: The Life and Legacy of Chief Plenty Coups, Ranger Jessica Joyce, Afferbay Campground Am- phitheater, 9 p.m. June 30: The Fur Trade, Horseshoe Bend Camp- ground, Ranger Shawn Wil- liams, loop B Amphithe- ater, 8 p.m. If you have questions about upcoming programs or need directions, please call Christy Fleming at 307-548-5402 or Adrienne Moore at 406-666-2351.

The proceeds will go for paint for the meeting- house interior. Are you on? Nothing quite so ri- diculously laughable and phony as this two-act comedy farce has ever be- fore been attempted in Cowley. 75 YEARS AGO THE LOVELL CHRONICLE JULY 1, 1937 Laramie's latest night- time sport is shooting rats at the city dump with the aid of automobile head- lights. The dump is over- run with the rodents and a number of residents are going nightly to test their marksmanship on the rats as they race across piles of trash. The Laramie Chamber of Commerce is planning an anti-rat cam- paign in an effort to rid the area of the rats. It is feared they will spread. 50 YEARS AGO THE LOVELL CHRONICLEJUNE 28, 1962 Photo: Petite and tal- ented Anne Kelly emerged from 12 candidates to win the "Miss Big Horn Coun- ty" title June 16.

Last Wednesday, there were two members of the public in attendance for the final open house as the pub- lic input portion of the plan- ning process for the North Big Horn County Airport Master Plan draws to a close. Airports Manager Carl Meyer said there has been little turnout from the public at the several pub- lic meetings held regard- ing the north master plan, in part, he believes, due to public apathy, and in part because the airport is of in- terest only to -a : particular section of the public. "Airports are not of par- ticular interest to the gen- eral public, but they are important and the public meetings have been an op- portunity to disseminate in- formation," Meyer said. He said the process for the north master plan is winding down and the coun- ty and airports engineering firm GDA are writing a doc- ument that has had "very little public input." Meyer said people think their opinion is not going to matter, but that's not the case as was seen Wednes- day. He said GDA had three alternative designs to ex- pand the general aviation area at the north airport and the two members of the public suggested another alternative that likely will work the best. "We have no precon- ceived plan. We truly want public input. It makes a dif- ference," Meyer said. get your copy of at the courtesy counter of Red Apple or have it delivered via USPS with a year-long subscription by calling 548-2217 The master plan will provide guidance for the air- port for the next 8-10 years. It's a guiding document for the county and for the Fed- eral Aviation Administra- tion so they know what the county has planned when funding becomes available. He said in order to gain additional input from a core group of users at the air- port, he and GDA person- nel will be meeting with the gliding group. "The Cowley airport is a popular place for gliders because of the thermal air and the lack of traffic," Meyer said. While the plan has taken the glid- ers into consideration, Mey- er and GDA felt it was im- portant for them to review the plan. He said they will meet with other groups, as well, but are hoping to have a final document ready to send to the FAA for its for- mal review process in the next 60 days. SOUTH AIRPORT The meeting last Tues- day in Greybull was the first in what will be a near- ly year-long process for the South Big Horn County Air- port Master Plan. He said the meeting Tuesday was primarily to discuss the planning process, funding of the project and funding of airports in general. He said the one member of the public who attended didn't ask questions, but listened to the information dissemi- nated. This was the first of four to five public meetings that will be held through- out the planning process, Meyer said. Meyer said most air- port projects are funded 90 percent from the FAA and 10 percent locally with the Wyoming Department of Transportation Aeronautics Commission funding 6 per- cent and the county 4 per- cent. The master plan cost for the south airport is bud: geted for $167,000 with the county paying $6,600 from the airport budget. Another financial item Meyer wants to emphasize is that all revenue from the airport stays at the airport. He said aviation fuel, air- port parts and equipment and even airline ticket reve- nue are all used to fund the FAA and aviation projects across the country. While at the north end GDA is finalizing an: al- ternative,a, submit to the FAA, GDA will begin devel- oping different expansion alternatives for the south airport. Meyer said two factors will be driving their plans: Significant general aviation expansion. Expansion of the ramp space for additional com- mercial businesses. He said initially GDA will be looking at a new taxiway off of Runway 28 west of the existing devel- oped area to expand general aviation area. He said there will be four to five more public meetings over the next five months for input on the future of the south airport. Those unable to attend the meetings may request an airport user survey from GDA or Meyer. Meyer's of- fice is located in the Land Planning/Engineer Build- ing in Basin (the old jail) or call 568-2551. LOVE t I Ix I.
