Players sought for semipro football team BY DAVID PECK Professional football may be coming to the north Big Horn Basin with the organi- zation of a semipro team to be a member of the American Developmental Football League of Colorado. Former Rocky Mountain Grizzly Josh Gruell of Byron is helping to assemble and organize the team as general man- ager, and he will also play on the squad, which will be called the Northern Wyoming Timberwolves. Gruell has scheduled a team meeting for this Saturday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. at the former Byron school building, and all inter- ested players 18 and older are invited, along with prospective coaches.

Settlemier said Snell, who has attended two su- pervised boot camps so far, will be on her own for the next nine months working toward her goal at home. She said the show will film her again at the six-and nine-month benchmarks of her journey and she will continued from page 1 be evaluated by a skin con- sultant after she has lost around 40 to 50 percent of her weight to determine if she will require surgical re- moval of excess skin as a re- sult of her extreme weight loss. If she does require the surgery, it will be provided to her through the show. "Now that she's com- ing home, she will be on her own and need the support of her communi- ty more than ever," said Settlemier. "We hope the whole town shows up to support her. It's a great op- portunity to put Lovell on the map, and to show the world what this small town is all about." Safety Pediatrics " ROCKY MOUNTAIN POWER Let's turn the answers on. 14A CLOSED AFTER CRASH Spurbeck of New Philadel- phia, Ohio, was traveling down the mountain on 14A around 7:50 a.m. Tuesday on a 10 percent downgrade and negotiating a curve in the highway when the 2012 Volvo tractor he was driving crashed into the east side of the roadway. The crash site is about two miles up from the Five Springs turnoff. Highway troopers on the scene were investigat- ing brake failure as a con- tributing factor in the crash as the truck's speed became too great for the downgrade and the curves, which caused the truck to tip and roll, WyDOT stated. Trooper Dan Walk- er said the driver used too high a gear while de- scending the steep grade and after the brakes failed bounced off the Jersey bar- riers on the exposed side of the highway, preventing continued from page 1 the truck from going over the edge. "He hit that sucker hard," Walker said. The highway was closed with debris strewn across both lanes of traffic and the tanker trailer jutting out into the inside or east- bound lane while a North Big Horn Hospital ambu- lance crew worked to free Spurbeck from the wreck- age. With the cab up on the steep embankment, EMTs first got the driver out of the cab, then helped him down the slope to the await- ing stretcher. He was trans- ported by ambulance to the hospital in Lovell with mi- nor injuries, according to Walker, and was released. The highway remained closed while Trooper Walk- er conducted his initial in- vestigation at the scene but reopened to one lane of traf- fic alternating up and down the mountain as Lovell vol- unteer firemen controlled traffic above and below the site. The truck remained on the mountain Tuesday eve- ning and the highway was again closed while a crew pumped the latex from the tank, Lovell Fire Chief Jim Minchow said Tues- day night. Walker said the truck was removed and the highway re-opened early Wednesday morning. According to WyDOT, the load of latex is not con- sidered to be a hazardous material, but emergen- cy responders were able to contain the latex that was leaking from the tanker, with the crash scene ap- proximately 150 feet from a water source. Minchow said the tank- er was heading to the Celo- tex Corp. sheetrock plant in Cody. ALZHEIMER'S WALK SEPT. 20 to End Alzheimer's."
