Main St Lovell, Wyoming 82431 Get Growing with Gary BY GARY EMMETT getgrowingwithgary@gmail.com We are coming out of one of the hottest and driest summers that I can ever remember. And it is not over yet. As the welcomed cooler nights have been coming, along with the cooler days, one can see the effects of the long, hot summer. There are steps you still need to take to ensure that you are able to enjoy your yard throughout the fall. Watering has been a cra- zy ordeal. But you now need to start cutting back on the amount of water that you have been ap- plying to your lawn. If you keep watering your lawn the same amount you were at the first of the month and throughout July, you will more than likely end up with fungus in your lawn. If you were watering your lawn an Cowley news BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 School is in session once again. Last week teachers and employees of the schools re- turned to campus to prepare for the fall semester. School began on Wednesday. It's hard to believe that it is time for school and the summer has passed by so quickly. Wasn't it just the first of July as were preparing for Pioneer Day? The football boys have practices twice a day, the elementary stu- dents have been actively prac- ticing on the school grounds and here it is, the 2012 school year. Jeremy and Cinthia Shell have moved into our communi- ty as new residents. Jeremy was transferred through Haliburton from Phoenix where the family lived for eight months. Cinthia is happy for the move as Phoenix was so congested and both she and her husband wanted to leave city life. Both Jeremy and Cinthia were raised in Basin and Shell. When she mentioned she grew up in Shell, I asked her if she remembered the late Frank Hinckley, Sr and she did go to school with one of his sons. Frank Hinckley was origi- nally from Cowley and graduated from Cowley High School. He was brother to the late DeVere Hinck- ley, Wyoming H. Willis, Mary H. Meeks, John Hinckley, who taught at Northwest for most of Byron news BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 548-2471 pamhopkinson@gmail.com With school starting soon, a few of our young Byron families decided to take their children on one last camping trip. The plans were set in motion and when all was decided they didn't go far, but it was far enough to feel away from their regular routine and to make it a mini vacation of sorts. There was beach, water, fish- ing and warnings of snakes and no campfires allowed. They went to the area above Horseshoe Bend. The kids played in the wa- ter and on the rocky beach. Early Saturday morning, Mitch Lofgran got an early start and arranged several poles, baited and in the water just waiting for their fisher- man to grab on and start catching fish. The poles were each propped by the chairs that had been set up the night before. As she woke up, Summer Lof- gran poked her head out of the tent she and heard: "Grab the pole! Grab the pole!" She saw the chair fall over and the pole being pulled away and made a mad dash to catch it, but not soon enough. Mitch had dropped his pole and run after it but to no avail. The fish bit and swam away, pulling the pole into the water and on its way. French toast distracted the kids for a while, but after a hour, cut back to 45 minutes. If you were watering 45 minutes cut it back to 30. However, you will want to make sure your trees and shrubs are watered deeply. Fertilizing needs to be cut back on your roses, trees and shrubs. You don't want to stim- ulate any extra growth on the plants. Yet it will soon be a great time to use a weed and feed on your lawn to control the weeds that have been growing in your lawn. Be careful, because you will still need to watch how high the temps get and you don't want to apply any weed killers to your lawn when temperatures are still above 85 degrees. I will usually wait until after Labor Day. If you don't want to use a weed and feed, you are able to use the liq- uid weed killers. I prefer to use a product called Weed Free Zone, his adult life, and Maurine Hinck- ley, who worked in Billings. It appears that we are all connected in some manner. Jeremy and Cinthia have sev- en children ranging in age from 9 to 7 months. They live at the Anderson place near Lou Marchant Wilson's home and what I still call the Can- ning Factory Road. They are close to the Wilson Construction office and they are glad to be in the com- munity. Jeremy works in Lovell for Haliburton and Cinthia home schools her children, which seems a bit overwhelming to me, but we are glad they are now part of our community and we welcome them and their children. Donna Cozzens sent e-mail last week to say that Frankie Coz- zens traveled to Laramie in late June to see her granddaughter, Lindsay Kate Cozzens, perform the lead role of Patsy Cline in "Al- ways Patsy Cline" at the Snowy Range Summer Theatre. Lindsay Kate, an alumna of the Universi- ty of Wyoming lives in New York City and is the daughter of David and Donna Cozzens of Laramie, where Donna is an office assis- tant at the Wyo. Union (CAC) at the university. Lindsay's dad, David Coz- zens, is the Associate Vice Presi- dent for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at the university. Da- vid Cozzens is the son of Frankie and the late Dave Cozzens. Da- few hours of other fun, fishing called again. So they threw in their lines and it wasn't long be- fore Ethan (son of David and Jen Hessenthaler) snagged something and reeled it in. Believe it or not, it was the pole that had earlier swam away and the fish was still attached to the hook. These kids will all have a great tale to tell on their "what I did this summer" re- ports. Serena and Brandon Hes- senthaler and family, as well as Jeff and Jenny Noall and fam- ily, were all there to witness the event. My granddaughter Sadie delivered a sack of a few fish and was hoping I would cook them. I made a rule a long time ago that I would cook fresh fish if they were speckled, rainbow trout. Any- thing else was great fertilizer for the trees. These fish had whiskers and that just doesn't seem to go on a fish. As Cole would say, "It's creepy." When I was growing up here in Byron, my friend Mary (Dea- ton) and I used to go visit her aunt Ida Mae Sessions. I loved going there because she lived in that big grand white house with the wrap- around porch right in the middle of Main Street. It reminded me of those southern mansions you see in the movies. The home now belongs to Gene and Robbie Edwards, and it has an.interesting history. When Edwin Sessions and his wife An- nie (NeVille) came as newlyweds to Byron, they first lived in a tent containing the chemical carfen- trazone. This chemical quickly kills the persistent weeds in your lawn. You still need to watch the temperatures, though. You might have noticed some dry looking patches in your lawn. This could be from insects. Both billbugs and white grubs are doing damage down at the root zone of your grass. If you have seen the little elongat- ed white moths flying from your grass, these are the moths that are laying the eggs of sod web- worms. As the sod webworm matures, they start eating the blades of grass. Using chemi- cal granules containing imida- cloprid can control these lawn insects. Using permethrin can control the sod webworm or use bifenthrin based chemicals. Fall is a great time for plant- ing. You can start reseeding or vid grew up in Cowley, graduated from here and both he and Donna have important careers. We're impressed. Joining Frankie for the per- formance was Frankie's daugh- ter Leslie Cozzens Davies of Rock Springs and Leslie's daughter, Jensen Cozzens-Lynch, and her husband, Brent, residents of Las Vegas. Donna gave me more infor- mation about her daughter Lind- say. She has been a vocalist since the age of 12. She was trained in opera, with polishing at the In- terlochen Arts Academy in Michi- gan and a year at Ohio's presti- gious Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. She counts her time as a theater major at the University of Wyoming among the highlights of her career. "Loved it here," said Cozzens, who since graduating from UW in 2005 has lived in New York in pursuit of her dream to make it on Broadway. Both of Frankie's granddaugh- ters have musical talent. Frankie and all of the Jensen family mem- bers have splendid voices, and I remember Frankie singing in all the musicals, the choir and as a soloist in the years I grew up in this town. And, I don't remember her husband. Dave's voice, but I recall the beautiful Andrea Coz- zens and her gorgeous, strong, vi- brant soprano voice. Congratula- tions to them all. and then a log cabin until they purchased a "ready made" house from the Sears catalog. (Around 1912-1914.) This was a kit house. They were shipped by rail and delivered ready to build with all necessary hardware, fixtures, lumber, roofing and siding cut ex- actly to fit. The builder was responsi- ble for the foundation but Sears provided everything else. Sears advertising showed that these large two-story kit homes cost be- tween $1,000 and $2,000 and that a customer could save $800 to $1,000. The large green home on the corner across the street (Er- nie and Evelyn Jensen's former home and present home of the Larry Colyar family) was also a Sears catalog home. Can you imagine the excite- ment in watching these two beau- tiful homes being built? Remem- ber many of these folks had left grand homes behind to come here and live in tents. I'm sure it was the talk of the town from the day of delivery until it was fin- ished. Those porches have seen a lot going on in our town. In the past month, I have be- come aware of three cases of shin- gles, so I thought I would put out a public service announcement. If you have had chicken pox in your past, you should check into get- ting the shingles vaccine. It cuts down your chances of shingles by 50 percent and if you do get them it reduces the misery. You've been warned. Take heed. top dressing your lawn to help repair the damaged spots. Just make sure that the seed stays moist and comes in contact with the soil. Trees and shrubs do very well when planted in late summer and into the fall. And I am going to try a late batch of garden peas. I hope I haven't waited too long. I will let you know how they turn out. Iris rhizomes or roots need to be planted as soon as you get them. Start watching for tulip and daffodil bulbs. Don't forget you can plant perennials, too. Mums and asters are starting to bloom; this adds great color in the garden. As you can see there are still many things to do in and around your garden. If you have any gardening questions, you can email me at getgrowingwith- gary@gmail.com.

Harback marriage announced Ronald and Christina Har- back have announced their mar- riage that took place May 18, 2012, on Fort Myers Beach, Fla. at sunset. A small reception followed with family and friends. Senior Chatter Alzheimer's Walk is Sept. 22 BY PHYLLIS BRONKEMA North Big Horn County's ev- er-busy senior center is alive with ideas for its yearly "Walk To End Alzheimer's" event to take place on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 8 to 10 a.m. Three team captains have already volunteered and are rounding up team members. Each captain receives a special complimentary T-shirt. It's not too late to become a team captain yourself and form your own team. Or you may join one of the already existing teams. You are invited to call the center at 548-6556 and ask to speak to either Denise or Kim if interested in either choice. Area businesses are invited to form a team, too. Fun gifts will be given that day for the team that walks the most miles, has the most people and/or raises the most money. Ideas for prizes are still being de- veloped. The theme of the walk itself is Reminisce. Novel activities are being planned for that day in keeping with that theme. If you are unable to attend the walk, there are easy and af- fordable ways to become involved. Forget-Me-Not flowers are avail- able at the center for $2 each on which names of loved ones who have suffered from this disease can be placed. Or you may pur- chase one just as a memorial for any loved one. Perhaps the name of a caretaker for victims of Alzheimer's may be placed on a flower. There is also a quilt be- ing raffled off, and there will be a 50/50 raffle going on until the 22nd. Last yea s winner netted $90. The center would like to en- courage as many people as possi- ble to become a part of this worth- while cause.
