t ,11 www. LovellChronicle.com July 29, 2010 I The Lovell Chronicle I 3 Grant and Jackson to wedAug. 12 PeopZe in the news MichaelandMarianne I Grant of Lovell have an- nounced the forthcoming marriage of their son Lucas to Shanae Jackson, daugh- ter of Kevin and Bonnie Jackson of Afton on Aug. v rnn ews 12, 2010, in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. :1 Lucas is a 2006 gradu- Lucks and Shanae it ate of Lovell High School. 1 GARY GRUELL 548-2220 This week's column kind of picks up on last week's. I had reported that several residents had called the clerk's office in regard to the irrigation water ser- vice fee that began on the first of the month. I received a complaint from one individual who was upset with the term "several" and that his com- plaint was directly directed to me. It is my belief that the term "couple" repre- sents two, "a few" represent three to five, and "several" represent six to a dozen or so. "Many" would represent a percentage of probably 20 to 30, and of course, "major- ity" would represent more than 51 percent. In this par- ticular case, my use of the term "several" is accurate and does not need any more justification. The individual making the call to me has the right to his opinion and I accept his complaint with- out prejudice, but I will not retract the term "several." It should be noted, how- ever, that the majority of the received calls at the clerk's office were to inform the town that the caller does not use the ditch de- livery system and therefore they would be credited for the charge. As stated be- fore, the clerk's office has no way of knowing for sure who does or who doesn't use the ditches. The procedure used to initiate the fee was probably the best way to do so. Both the clerk and the mayor were expecting more calls than actually received, which indicates the new fee has been accepted rather reasonably. On a very positive side, there have been a few lov- ing neighbors that have called volunteering to pay the new fee for others that they believe cannot afford the additional cost. This type of compassion is one of the many reasons Byron is a great place to live. It is common knowledge that the town has six indi- viduals seeking two seats on the town council and four individuals seeking a term as mayor for the town of Byron. As a courtesy, the first Pre-Primary Receipts Report of all candidates seeking public office is due to the County Clerks office not later than Aug. 10. A copy of the report is avail- able at the Byron Complex. Once completed, the report should be mailed to the County Clerk's office at PO Box 31, Basin, WY 82410. As a public service, there will be a "Meet the Candi- dates" forum on Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Rocky Mountain High School auditorium. In- terested persons in the town have formed a list of ques- tions and the candidates will be asked to respond to those questions. The public will also be allowed to ask questions of the candidate if they so desire. If you are not registered to vote at this time, you may register at the polls on elec- tion day, Aug. 17. The elec- tion will be held at the By- ron Complex. As always, have a great and safe week. Shanae is a 2009 graduate of Star Valley High School. They are both attending the University of Wyoming where Lucas is studying engineering and Shanae is studying child psychology. Hyde returns from mission in Japan Mark Gardner Hyde, son of Carola and John Hyde of Lovell, returned Thursday, July 1, from serv- ing a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mark served in the Japan Sen- dai Mission, which covers the northern part of Japan. After spending the last two years with the Japanese, Mark is now fluent in that language. He reported his mis- sion in the Lovell Fourth Ward on Sunday, July 11. Mark Hyde He said the weather in Ja- pan is much like ours, ex- cept much more humid. Mark's parents and other family members were able to travel to Japan and tour with him before his return to Lovell. Mark plans on attend- ing college at Eastern Utah in Price, Utah. He will at- tend on a baseball scholar- ship. i, I. h Get Growing ,o, with Gary Emmett nun What a week it has been and I don't know where to begin to share; might as well start at the top. Grasshoppers: They are still out there wreak- ing havoc on our gardens. First off, if you are apply- ing a granule insect killer and it is not baited, it is very unlikely that it will do anything to your popula- tion of grasshoppers. You must use a baited granule like the Eco-Bran that you can get from the County Weed at/d- Pest.: s: es- day morning they had the large 44-pound sacks and were waiting for the small- er 2-pound shakers to come in. I am using both the bait- ed granules and also spray- ing with the liquid carbaryl in the early morning or late night when the grasshop- pers are not so apt to take flight and I can make sure that I can get a good contact with the chemical. Lawn problems: Though we have had problems with grubs and other lawn in- sects that are doing dam- age "not -all of ti ese'*p - lems can be blamed on the insects. Some of it comes from fungal problems. You can spray for these fungal problems, however, you will need to make a secondary application. Another problem that can occur in a lawn is by spraying weed killers. Usu- ally there is a warning about not spraying your lawn when daytime temps are going to be above 85 degrees (F). In high tem- peratures, the weed killer can volatize and start to drift across your yard caus- ing damage on youT other plants that you didn't want to kill. Certain weed kill- ers can also burn out grass when temperatures get too hot. Always read and fol- low the labels and remem- ber that just a little more doesn't mean it will do just a little bit better. Vegetable gardens: With warmer nighttime temperatures you might start to see some fungal problems on some of your plants. There is a garden fungicide that is safe for your vegetables called Da- conil. Follow the directions to see how many days that you will need to wait to har- vest your vegetables. Potato Beetles and oth- er beetles are starting to rear their ugly heads, too. Be careful of what you are spraying. I prefer to use Spinosad to control the oth- er insects in my garden. On the good side of the season is that most gardens are starting to produce their harvest. Cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and other vegetables are start- ing to come on. This is the time when we start to see all the work we have put i,n come to fruition." Hdwev~r, remember to lock your dad doors at church because my zucchini is coming on strong. Last week I spent a couple of days up at the Paintrock Lakes camping and fishing. It was a great place to get away from it all and celebrate my wife's birthday with family. The mountains were alive with color and I even saw a few varieties of plants that I didn't know would grow up in those high elevations. It was really a treat to see all of the flowers that sur- i'ound us if we only take the time to stop and take a look around. [ I 75 YEARS AGO JULY 26, 1935 The Cowley Weekly Progess: Hot weather? Here it is: special for Saturday, July 27. All the Root Beer you can drink for 5 cents at Bassett's Drug Store. (ad shown) Last Sunday, when a Cody airplane was zoom- ing over Cowley, Council- man Grant Taggart looked up Mayor Tebbs and insist- ed on taking the latter "for a ride." The Mayor objected strenuously, stating that he felt much safer on terra fir- ma, or whatever it is what one calls solid ground. How- ever, Mr. Taggart finally won the argument, insist- ing only that the doughty councilman go along. When they had taken the air, the pilot insisted on learning Mr. Taggart how to oper- ate not only the "stick" but also the controls. That's when the mayor began to act a little squeamish and grabbed for the parachute- who wouldn't, with an un- learned pilot in control? However the party circled over Lovell a few times, and then headed for the Cowley airport, Mr. Taggart pilot- ing like a veteran until in sight of the landing, when the pilot took charge and lande# the plane, much to the relief of the mayor. It takes guts a plenty to keep from hollering "Bloody Mur- der" when up in the air with an unlearned pilot. Yet the Mayor took it and appar- ently liked it.

It is listed under the "Keeping Posted" heading on the last page, and is re- ported by Arthur W. Baum. This is his text about Wyo- ming. Baum says there is only one stretch of highway on our map that he would not willingly travel again- the Shell canyon road, 'U.S. 14' between Grey- bull and Ranchester, Wyo. 'It is notched into the side of a mountain and there is no shoulder. The most hair-raising stretch of road I have ever seen' said this veteran tourist." The "Post" editor added, "We will take his word for it." The best part of the whole article is that many of the "Post" readers will also take his word for it and use "Wyo- ming 14 which brings them through Lovell."

A spokesman for the refinery stated that a formal grand opening will be planned for later. Some construction re- mains to be completed.
