From our files 100 YEARS AGO The Cowley Weekly Progress September 7, 1912 A crowd of our "fresh" young men imagined one day this week they had a "hunch" that the two couples we men- tioned last week as having matrimo- nial bees in their bonnets, were going to Utah this week, consequently armed themselves with the customary quantity of rice and went to the depot to await their victims, but no one appeared and the joke was on the boys. 75 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle September 9, 1937 For the sixth consecutive month, Wyoming was above the national per- centage of increase in savings, building and loan mortgages accepted for insur- ance by the Federal Housing Admin- istration.

According to superintendent Glenn Engelking it will be about two weeks be- fore the new high school building will be ready to occupy. The delay stems from the $25,000 loan which the district re- ceived from the Wyoming Emergency School Fund. It was earlier expected the new building would have to be opened without tile on the floor, lockers, or the completion of dressing rooms in the physical education section of the build- ing. 25 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle September 10, 1987 The Fitch Brothers are coming to town! A committee for the State of Wy- oming Economic Development Loan Fund, commonly referred to as Amend- ment 4 money, approved a $750,000 low interest loan that will allow Fitch Broth- ers Manufacturing Co. of Orem, Utah, to move their operations to Lovell, where they will manufacture automatic video vending machines.
