2 I The Lovell Chronicle I July 7, 2011 P PLE www. LovellChronicle.com Cowley news Fireworks and barbecues mark Independence Day DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 The Fourth of July cel- ebration was filled with ac- tion in our smallcommuni- ty. Firecrackers resounded and fireworks were shoot- ing in the sky with their noises and brilliant lights. Lots of people had vis- itors for the long weekend and enjoyed each other's company as they celebrated with good meals, outdoor barbecues and close com- panionship. There were many flags displayed, some houses had patriotic deco- rations and the weather co- operated; it was not blaz- ing hot, with a warm wind and a cool cloudy evening and the warm wind became COO1. Later, the thunder and lightning arrived and a rainstorm swept the area that did not deter the fire- works. What a splendid way to express our freedom with great displays of pa- triotism. Mac and Edie Crosby have returned from Boston after a long week or so of traveling. Their son, Jesse, and his wife, Amber, and three children, Peter, 6, Emilia, 4 and Eliza, 1, have been in Logan, Utah, where Jesse attended Utah State to gain his clinical psychol- ogy degree. He has been awarded an internship at Harvard Medical School and the family will be there one to three years. Mac and Edie went to Logan to help them pack, and then assisted them by driving the moving van for five long days. The young Crosby family followed the van in their automobile, moved into their new place and are now trying to ac- climate themselves to city life. Mac and Edie flew back by plane and are re- lieved that their long ven- ture is accomplished. They will miss the family but what an accomplishment this young man and his family have earned. Con- gratulations to the Crosby family. Carlyle Eyre's funer- al was last Saturday at 10 a.m. When people who were not in his family read the obituary posted last week, his war record, his Purple Heart, Silver Stars and his many accomplish- ments astounded most of us. He was a quiet, unas- suming man whose many good deeds influenced young and old. We grieve his passing because of his wonderful spirit and gifts, but he suffered ill health for many years and has been so lonesome for his wife who died last year. He lived a long and fruit- ful life, so the sadness is alleviated a bit because he is no longer in pain and his achievements will live on in his children, grandchil- dren and all his posterity and those who knew him and were his friends. Golden Welch and his younger brother, David Welch, sons of the late Art and Mary Welch, drove Hope Ballard Eyre, pictured in the early 1900s, wields her signature rifle while standing on a rock formation near Cowley. from Las Vegas and Salt Lake City to attend the funeral services in honor of their friend and men- tor. Golden said he began working with Carlyle and his father Elmer Eyre at the young age of 8 when Elmer Eyre taught him to drive a tractor. Both Golden and David worked for the Eyres during their younger years and the two Eyre men impacted their lives with their work ethic and kindnesses to the two young fellows during their time together. Many rela- tives and friends traveled long hours to honor Carlyle Eyre and his life. He and his family will not be for- gotten. A few weeks ago, I was at the home of David and Leta Marchant and while there looked at the pic- tures in their home that family members and their children had painted. As we walked out to their door I noticed a picture of a young, shapely wom- an standing on this big rock pointing her rifle. It looked like a picture of An- nie Oakley, and Leta told me a delightful story of her mother, Angiy Hope Bal- lard. Angiy Hope Ballard was born in 1894 in Drap- er, Utah. The family came to Burlington to live around 1888. They were very poor, so they had to live off the land. Hope's older broth- ers Ross and Seth taught Hope to shoot when she was about 8 years old. The fam- ily didn't have much money and they had to travel to Basin on a horse or in their buggy to get supplies. Food and ammunition were very dear, so each shot had to count. Hope became the huntress of the family as she became very good at handling her gun. She killed rabbits, sage hens and grouse, pheasants and deer to feed their large family. Hope attended el- ementary school in Burl- ington and came to Cowley for high school at the Big Horn Academy. There she met the love of her life, El- mer Eyre. When Elmer and his mother and dad and the rest of the children served a LDS mission in Illinois for two years, Hope went to work at Pahaska Teepee and waited for her sweet- heart and then they mar- ried and lived on the fam- ily farm. Elmer's parents, Wil- liam Naylor and Julia Vic- toria Smith Eyre, came to this area in 1900 by train to Bridger, Mont. They went to the railroad camp at Pryor Gap and spent the winter building rail- road grade, and probably lived in a tent during the harsh months. They then moved to Cowley. They had eight children. Leta said her dad sang each day in the morning to his chil- dren and danced and was a joyful, energetic man. Genevieve Mann, his granddaughter, said he was the best grandpa in the world because of his joyous nature, his singing and his love of dancing. During my growing years, I watched Mr. and Mrs. Eyre attend every dance in Cowley and the area and they were so graceful and full of life and joy. What grand memories of a family who were so im- portant to us all. Renner chosen for leadership conference BY DAVID PECK Lovell sophomore Kassi Renner will have a rare op- portunity to explore our na- tion's capitol and also learn leadership skills after being selected for the Washing- ton Leadership Conference through the Wyoming FFA Foundation. Renner, the daughter of Russell and Toni Renner of Lovell, applied and was ac- cepted for the conference, which will be held July 12- 17, receiving a scholarship through the FFA Founda- tion donated by Tri-State Generation and Transmis- sion. She was accepted af- ter filling out an applica- tion form, obtaining letters of recommendation from three teachers and writing an essay about her activi- ties and accomplishments in FFA and 4-H. Academics also played a major role in Kassi Renner her selection, she said. Renner's school activi- ties include basketball, volleyball and the North- west College Math Contest, along with FFA, where she is serving as the chapter historian. She is also active in 4-H and found great success last year showing her market cattle. Her bull was a grand champion at the Big Horn County Fair, and she ad- vanced to the state fair with both a heifer and a bull. At the state fair she won Grand Champion Fall Born Heifer and Grand Cham- pion Maine Anjou Bull, as well as Grand Champion Fall Born Bull. In Washington Renner will attend a variety of leadership seminars, vis- it various monuments and museums, meet and visit with Sen. John Barrasso, visit the U.S. Capitol build- ing, tour Arlington Nation- al Cemetery and perform community service. Each day carries a dif- ferent leadership title in- cluding Authentic Leader- ship, Know Your Purpose, Value People, Take Action and Serve Others. Renner can attend up to 12 leader- ship sessions.
