12 I The Lovell Chronicle I July 22, 2010 www. LovellChronicle.com Livestock sale in arena on Friday, parade Saturday BY BRENDA TENBOER The 2010 Big Horn County Fair may be oper- ating on a shorter budget, but there is no shortage of enthusiasm looking at the weeks ahead. Fair week, with the theme of "Legacy of Yes- terday, Promises of Tomor- row" officially runs Aug. 2 through Aug. 8. The Junior Livestock Sale will be held in the are- na on Friday, Aug. 6, begin- ning at 6:30 p.m. to allow for shade and use of the of the new sound system donated by Big Horn Rural Electric. The beer garden adjacent to the grandstand will be up and running so buyers may enjoy a cold brew while waiting for the animal of their desire to come up for bid. A dance will immedi- ately follow the sale, accord- ing to fair manager Howard Gernant, with the Saugers providing the live music. A pick-up category is now included in the Sunday afternoon demolition derby lineup. It will be held be- tween the loser's heat and the winner's heat when there is typically a long break. All drivers are asked to read the new rules, which are included in the fair book and posted online at Www. bighorncountyfair.com. The fair parade sched- ule was juggled a little bit during fair board meetings this year, but the end result is 10 a.m. on Saturday. Pa- rade entries are due by noon Friday, July 30, at the Basin Town Hall, call 568-3331 for further information. By July 23, 4-H mem- bers need to submit P.A.C.T entries to the fair office and scripts are also due, but need to be turned in at the UW Extension Office. All open class hay and samples are also due July 23. The following week all Junior, 4-H and FFA en- tries are due on Wednes- day, July 28. All open class horse entries must also be registered by July 28. All other open class entries are due the following Monday, Aug. 2. Sheep lead entries are due later in the week on Wednesday. Pig wrestling is sched- uled in its historical Thurs- day nighttime slot and team entries are required in the fair office the previous busi- ness day. Gernant said entertain- ment is lined up on the free stage from about noon on Friday and Saturday on the midway. It is unclear yet how many vendors will choose to set up for fair week as reg- istrations are still being ac- cepted, Gernant said. The Big Horn County Health Coalition is respon- sible for the giant air toys for children, such as the bounce house that was on the grounds last year. Fewer grounds crew workers are available due to budget constraints, with seven full-time helpers al- lowed during the week. In- terviews take place Thurs- day, according to Gernant. The number of cleri- cal staff in the office is also expected to be down this year. Overall, fair week prom- ises to offer talented local entertainers, an improved rodeo and an exciting new category in the demo derby, Gernant said. La De Da to host Business After Hours All local businessmen and women are invited to attend the July session of Business After Hours today (Thursday) from 5 to 7 p.m. at the boutique La De Da at 186 East Main Street in Lovell. There will also be a spe- cial presentation at 5:30 and again at 6:15 about Compass Personal Develop- ment for Women. "Business After Hours is designed to be primarily a social function, so please feel free to stop by after work for a few minutes or plan to stay a while," Lovell Inc. Director Sue Taylor said. "These informal, ear- ly-evening events are ideal for meeting fellow business people and strengthening long-lasting business rela- tionships." Two doctors with Lovell ties When Paul Larson was in the Rochester Methodist Hospital for his four-day chemo treatment in prep- aration for a stem trans- plant recently, a young doctor, Daniel Spoon, was assigned to care for him during his hospital stay. Ann was curious as to where Dr. Spoon was from and surprised when he said Montana. Ann then proud- ly proclaimed that they were from Wyoming, but he probably hadn't heard of Lovell. Ann was surprised to hear that he did know of Lovell. The doctor's great- grandfather, Henry Keil, had a store in Lovell. Ann remembers Keil's Grocery Store on the corner where the 4 Corners Bar is now lo- cated. The Bischoffs bought their groceries at Keil's. Ann remembers her moth- er sending her to Keil's as a little girl with a dollar to get a pound of hamburg- er, a pound of butter and a loaf of bread and bring some change back home. Dr. Spoon's mother is Ann Keil, who now lives in Laurel. She relates many stories of Lovell to him. Jane Keil of Lovell is his great aunt. Dick Keil graduated from Lovell High School in the class of 1953. He met another Mayo Clinic doctor, Kenneth MacDonald, whose wife is the granddaughter of Bon- nie Porter. Bonnie's moth- er ran the Elite Shop on Main Street in Lovell. Bon- hie was an aunt to Loret- ta Bischoff, Fern Wardell, Rose Marie Brinkerhoff, Jay May and Priscilla Ca- turia. Mayo Clinic in Roches- ter has 1,887 full-time doc- tors, and the Larsons met two very nice doctors with Lovell connections. Small world, isn't it?

July 21, 2010 Re: Apology for PAWS Issues Dear Wyoming students, teachers and citizens: I am writing to apologize for technology issues experienced by some teachers and students during the online administration of PAWS testing from March 8 to April 14 of this year. My Pearson colleagues and I deeply regret the disruption, and are dismayed to have let you down. We understand that students, teachers and school administrators work very hard to prepare for the PAWS. And, we recognize that, in light of these efforts, the problems that occurred are all the more disappointing. We appreciate the assistance we received from the Wyoming Department of Education and local school districts to resolve the issues, and we have taken comprehensive corrective action to avoid such issues in the future. In the weeks now following completion of the PAWS testing window, ongoing analyses of the test results are underway to help schools and teachers plan for the coming school year. We are committed to providing the best possible products and services to Wyoming students and educators, and grateful that you're willing to work with us as we take additional steps to regain your confidence as well as that of the Department of Education. We will be giving that task our all. Sincerely, Darice Keating President, State Services Pea rso n N ExI3 ElL: I i I-PEDIC" PRESSURE RELIEVING SWEDISH MA'i-rRESSES AND PILLOWS
