10 I The Lovell Chronicle ! July 19. 2012 COURTESY PHOTO Scotty Jameson hurls in a pitch during the first game of the Williston State College District Tournament in Williston, North Dakota on May 19. After starring at Williston, Jameson signs with Nebraska-Kearney Scotty Jameson of Lovell recently completed his second college season at Williston State College in Williston, N.D. The Tetons' baseball team set a school record for the most wins, finishing second in the North Plains District Tournament, and with a final record of 36- 21 overall. Jameson was named the conference's Most Valuable Pitcher af- ter being named the confer- ence's MVP in his freshman season. Along with a Confer- ence MVP and a Confer- ence Pitcher of the Year award, Jameson was a two-time all-conference se- lection along with being named to the All-Region and All- District teams both years. Jameson has also been inducted into the Williston State College Hall of Fame and is part of the All-Decade team for the school. The Tetons rolled in conference play, going 16-4 overall. Both seasons Jameson was a Teton, the team won the Region XIII championship. DISTRICT TOURNAMENT In the first game at their district tournament held in Williston, N.D. on Friday, May 19, James- on was called on to pitch against Miles City Commu- nity College. Almost going the distance, he lasted 8 2/3 innings, striking out an impressive 13 batters, al- lowing only one earned run and only five total hits. The Tetons' bats were hot and heavy behind their pitcher scoring 9 runs for a final score of 9-1. Powell native Tyler England, who played with Jameson on the Powell Pioneers, racked up three RBIs on three hits in- cluding a homerun. The Tetons' second game didn't go quite as smoothly. They faced the fourth-ranked team in the nation in Des Moines Area Community Col- lege immediately after their game against Miles City Community College. Jameson's 3-for-5 perfor- mance at the plate wasn't enough to rally past the DMACC Bears' offense and they lost 11-3. On Saturday, May 20, the Tetons found them- selves in a rematch against DMACC. Again, they could not overcome the Bears and lost 8-3. The Williston State Tetons finished the season ranked number 15 in the national poll. Jameson finished his sophomore season with a team leading .383 bat- ting average, 59 hits, 2 homeruns and 41 runs scored. A 7-1 record and a 1.79 ERA on the mound led to him being named Conference Pitcher of the Year. "Scotty has been an in- strumental part of the pro- gram the last two years," head baseball coach Shawn Cote commented. "He is a great player and an even better person. WSC has been lucky to have such a great individual in the pro- gram." Jameson has had some tough decisions to make, as he has been recruited by more than 15 schools, rang- ing from NAIA to Division I. After taking a recruit- ing trip to Kearney, Neb., Jameson has decided to be- come a "Loper." Jameson signed his National Letter of Intent early this summer and is due in Kearney Au- gust 20. "We are very excited to add Scotty Jameson to the University of Nebras- ka at Kearney baseball program," head coach Da- mon Day said. "After a suc- cessful season at Williston State we were impressed with his abilities and what we thought he could do for our program. We feel he has the ability to anchor our infield, be a positive force in our batting order and bring us a successful pitcher on the mound. We are truly excited to have Scotty Jameson be a part of the University of Nebraska at Kearney baseball pro- gram." To the Phantom/host crew that picked up Jones/Park and all the trash and remains of the Byron Days celebration ... THANK YOU! Your commitment and dedication to do this each and every year for our community does not go unnoticed and we know who you are! A sincere thankyou alsogoes out to all who volunteered and helped make this Byron Days the best celebration ever! Summer Safety Nearly 70 percent of Americans have been involved in some kind of summer emergency, ranging from insect bites to heat stroke and other life-threatening situations. With the high temperatures that we have been experiencing this summer listed below are some tips if you do find yourself facing a summer emergency. MHS, PA-C BE SURE TO HYDRATE Drink plenty of fluid. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink. If you must exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, nonalcoholic fluids each hour. Avoid liquids with alcohol or sugar -- they will cause you to lose more body fluid. Stay away from very cold drinks -- they can cause stom- ach cramps. Limit your outdoor activity to morning and evening hours and wear lightweight, light-col- ored, loose-fitting clothing. Monitor young children and elderly people because they are more sensitive to heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Body temperature can rise to I06F or higher within I0 to 15 minutes. A very important tip for summer health is to drink enough fluids -- hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. SIGNS OF HEAT STROKE If they have a body temperature above 103 degrees, red, hot dry skin, and no sweating, means that the body's sweating mechanism is failing, and the body is unable to cool down. If the person has a rapid strong pulse, head- ache, dizziness or nausea -- call 911 and get the victim to a shady area. In the meantime, try to cool the victim rapidly using whatever methods you can like spraying them with cool water from a hose.

VOTE WYOMING WOLF PROBLEM Prior to the 1995 wolf reintroduction, Wyoming had, after I00 .years of wildlife management, the largest an,sLncentration of wildlife in-thelower 48 states. I remember my I ridlng back country viewing herds of 100's of elk, mo6^"=eer and But, no more. We have not seen a moose in Yellowstone in years. After all those years of wildlife management the indigenous wildlife of the Yellowstone ecosystem has now been reduced to a hairy pile of wolf feces. The wolves the federal government used to repopulate Wyoming, Idaho and Montana were of several different Canadian sub-species, a wolf that commonly tops out at 120 to 150 pounds, not the native wolf that tops out at 90 pounds. The wolves that now inhabit our State are not, and never have been, indigenous to Wyoming. These wolves are true predators and kill for the sake of killing. The federal government lied to us. Nothing new here. Wyoming was told that we would get 10 packs each in the State of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, all to be within the Yellowstone Park boundaries. Later, the federal's changed their minds, wanting 15 packs in Wyoming outside the Park, for a total of 25 packs! We now have a pack in the Big Horns! This pack will only grow in numbers. I know of few ranchers who have not been deeply affected by the reintroduction of the wolf. Ranchers in affected areas lose calves and livestock by the score. As if rancher's didn't have enough problems! Just ask a rancher how easy it is to get reimbursed for livestock losses. Governor Mead has been negotiating with the federal's over the wolf issue. The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission recently voted to allow hunters to kill up to 52 wolves in this State in the fall. Governor Mead remains hopeful that Congress will act to exempt the State's wolf management plan from legal challenges he expects from environmental groups. Wyoming's approval is the latest in a series of State actions since our Governor reached a deal last summer with the U. S. Department of the Interior to end federal protections of wolves in the State. Federal approval of wolf delisting in Wyoming may happen by fall of 2012, Don't hold your breath, it's an election year. The agreement would require Wyoming to maintain at least 10 breeding pairs of wolves and at least 100 individual animals outside Yellowstone Park and the Wind River Reservation. Under the Wyoming plan, trophy hunting of wolves in a flex zone around Yellowstone Park will be permitted beginning in October, 2012. Again, 52 permits are slated to be issued. Wolves in the rest of the State would be classified as predators that would be shot on sight year round. The deal sounds good and Governor Mead should be congratulated for his efforts. However, the fly in the ointment is that this deal still has not been exempt from legal challenges. Congresswoman Lummis has worked to get this exemption, but, without success thus far. If the past is any indication, and knowing the left as I do, the screwball environmentalists are lining up in full battle array to find a sympathetic federal judge to sue the State of Wyoming. Once that happens, the agreement and all of our Governor's efforts will be of little use and the people of Wyoming will be back to square one.
