www.LovellChronicle.com September 16, 2010 I The Lovell Chronicle I 3 ,00Peop " le the news Cowley news Sugar beets and ceiling beets DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 In one week it will of- ficially be fall, and oh, the weather has been perfect this last week. Every time I go visit Sally Wilson she is canning produce, fruits and jellies. Her garden is yielding fine produce and she has friends bringing tomatoes, peppers, plums and chokecherries. One really admires a person who gets such ful- fillment from the difficult, time consuming process of canning. I tried it once and the pressure cooker blew up with purple beets in it. My ceiling never looked the same and so I can do jellies and jams, but I stay away from those cookers. They scare me. Trucks are loaded with beets and harvesting has begun. Fall is a favor- ite time of year for many people and the farmers are working from dawn to sunset. The beets look wonderful and I hope a re- peat of last year will not hinder this year's crops. The days are brilliant and warm, and the nights are just glorious. What a great season. My son, Nathan T. Shumway, has been liv- ing with us since late July. He has spent time with his dad, Boots Shumway, and his sister, Cresta Peterson, and her family and has been reunited with his friends from high school. Now that the weather is cooling off a bit, he is getting ready to return to his home in Pa- tagonia, Ariz. John and I have enjoyed having Na- than in our home, and we'll miss him when he leaves. Nathan drove to Bill- ings last weekend for a late summer barbeque with friends, John and Caro- lyn Barnes, and their girls. They gathered at Greg Marchant's home and Ran- dy Marchant and his fam- ily attended and Tad Seibel and his family spent the af- ternoon catching up, eating good food and reminiscing with one another. Last weekend Karen and Randy Peterson and Shirley Busteed drove to Bear Lake to spend the weekend with their Utah relatives. Shirley said that about 20 to 25 family mem- bers attended. Her son Richard and Diane Monk Busteed have a timeshare home and Shirley said the house is most wonder- ful with seven bedrooms and several bathrooms up- stairs. Richard and Diane let Shirley stay in the main floor bedroom as she is on oxygen 24/7 and has diffi- culty climbing stairs. The windows opened to the shoreline and the view was spectacular. On the way back, the three stopped in Riverton to visit with Tra- vis and family. It is good to be able to see family, be- cause all we have is fami- ly and friends to make life joyful and loving. The weather cooperat- ed and it was gorgeous and warm. The home is close to the shore of Bear Lake with ATVs and watercraft available for fun. Byron news Town mulls repayment to State of Wyoming GARY GRUELL 548-2220 The Mayor's Luncheon was held last Friday at the Byron Complex. Only 17 residents joined togeth- er and enjoyed the festive soups and sweets provided by donation. Thanks are ex- tended to these generous individuals for their con- tinued support of the lun- cheon, which is provided free of charge to all mem- bers of our community. The next luncheon will be on Oct. 8. Sign-up sheets for providers are at the clerk's office in the Com- plex. The November lun- cheon witl behdoanual Chili-'Cook, off. r kepig with last year's event, the entry fee will be $5. Judges will be those who partake of the various chilies. The winner will take all. Town Clerk Vicki Gib- son attended the Wyoming Association of Municipali- ties Clerk and Treasurer (WAMCAT) workshop in Casper. She was appointed to the board as a committee chairperson until the win- ter workshop in January of 2011 when the position will be filled by election. At the workshop, the University of Wyoming announced a partnership with the WAM- CAT in which classes will be available from the De- partment of Education to certify clerks through the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. Not only will this allow clerks to be- come certified but it will make available continued education classes to keep them certified. Only a hand- ful of clerks and treasurers throughout the state are currently certified. The IIMC was found- ed in 1947 and is a pro- fessional association with more than 10,000 members in the U.S., Canada and 15 other countries. The IIMC's primary goal is to active: lypromote the continuing education and professional development of municipal clerks through extensive education programs, certifi- cation, recertification, pub- lications, networking and research. The IIMC also en- gages in municipal research administration, enhances critical professional skill development and fosters a spirit of mutual assistance and good fellowship among municipal clerks around the globe. In a letter to Mayor Meier, State Treasurer Jo- seph Meyer stated he had been communicating with the executive directors of WAM and the Wyoming County Commissioners As- sociation concerning the discovery of an overpay- ment of mineral severance tax distribution made by the treasurer's office back in fiscal year 1995. Meyer went on to state how the overpayment hap- pened and said the discov- ery of the overpayment did not become apparent un- til fiscal year 2004. During the 2008 legislative session, Meyer attempted to ad- dress the liability using re- versions to the general fund rather than seeking repay- ment from local govern- ments. This approach was rejected by the Appropria- tions Committee with com- ments that the liability and overpayment should be the responsibility of municipal- ities and counties from fu- ture state shared revenues. Through a couple of au- dits, the amount of mineral severance tax money trans- ferred to the Treasurer's of- fice by the Department of Revenue and the amounts distributed to local govern- ments resulted in a verifica- tion of a $3.65 million nega- tive account balance. Meyer's office has bro- ken down the repayment from counties and towns throughout Wyoming. By- ron's repayment amount is $3,008 and Lovell's is $12,751. One consolation is that the repayment is inter- est free. Can you imagine the uproar if that occurred due to an error beyond mu- nicipalities' control over 15 years ago? I believe Mayor Meier will recommend to the council that this man- datory repayment be paid in one lump sum, which should make it a bit easi- er later on during the year when funds really become scarce. The School Commit- tee met this past Monday and they were to report to the council at the regular meeting of the town council Tuesday, Sept. 14. An up- date on that situation along with the highlights of the council meeting will be ad- dressed in next week's col- umn. As always, have a great and safe week. Dausman to wed Hitz Dave and Carrie Daus- man and the late April Burke have announced the engagement and upcoming wedding of their daugh- ter, Angela May Dausman, to Jordan Morrison Hitz, the son of Mike and Linda Hitz. The couple will be mar- ried on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010, in Byron with a re- ception following. The cou- ple will make their home in Lovell where Angie is employed at the North Big Jordan and Angela Horn Hospital District and Jordan at American Col- laid.
