10 I The Lovell Chronicle J September 22, 2011 BY DAVID PECK The Battle of the Big Horns charity arm-wres- tling tournament Saturday was a big success, organizer Devin Bair reported. The amateur tourna- ment was held behind the Shoshone Bar Saturday af- ternoon to raise money for ongoing medical expenses of the Trey Englert family. Englert lost his hand in an industrial accident on July 4. "I've wanted to do at least one (tournament) in Lovell," said Bair, a profes- sional arm-wrestler. "I've been arm-wrestling for 12 years now and we've nev- er had a tournament in Lovell. It was a pleasure to introduce arm-wrestling to Lovell. "Everyone who watched the tournament enjoyed it. They left feeling pretty good about the event. Everybody had a ball." Bair said there were 50 entries in various classes Saturday, and two master referees donated their time. The event raised more than $2,500 for the Englert fam- ily. "We had the highest quality referees you could have, World Arm Wrestling Federation master refer- ees, and they donated their time," Bair said. Bair said many people helped the cause on Sat- urday. His company, Bair- co, paid the expenses of the tournament, including awards, but he noted that Larry Slater of Big Horn Engraving provided T- shirts and trophies at a dis- count. Gary Petrich roasted a pig, and the Shoshone Bar organized the food. Sponsors included Pro- duction Machine, Bairco Construction, Budweiser, Big Horn Engraving, Mid- way Auto Sales, Miller's Fabrication, Minchow's Service and Food Court, NEPECO and the Shosho- ne Bar.

They completed their projects the summer of 2010 at the Cowley Le- gion/Babe Ruth Baseball field. Davin is the son of Da- vid and Anne Brumwell of Cowley, and his project con- sisted of painting the con- cession area of the baseball building. The Town of Cow- ley donated most of the ma-, terials used in the project. Kyle is the son of Cres- ta and Ray Peterson of Cowley, and his project was painting the restrooms of the baseball building. The Town of Cowley also do- nated most of the materi- als, with items purchased at Cowley Lumber. Both boys received help with their projects from Troup 38, adult leaders of the Young Men/Young Women programs in the Cowley Second Ward, and family members. The eagle is the sym- bol of the United States of America, and Scouting's highest award. BY KARLA POMEROY The Big Horn Coun- ty commissioners accept- ed two bids for updating the current snow removal equipment to be used as a backup after new equip- ment arrives next year. At Tuesday's meeting, Bill Harris of GDA said four quotes were received to retrofit the South Big Horn County Airport equipment. He recom- mended the commission- ers approve option two -- a plow from CMI-TECO of Casper and the labor for installing the new 12- foot plow as well as oth- er repairs by Ameri-Tech of Casper. Total cost was $14,185. A bid from Big Horn County company Miller's Fabrication was about $13,000 higher. Harris said comple- tion will be 60 to 120 days. The commissioners asked what would be used for snow removal while the equipment was in Casper getting retrofitted. Acting Airport Manag- er Willie Bridges said an old truck with transmission problems could be used, or in an emergency the equip- ment from the North Big Horn County Airport could be brought down. OTHER BUSINESS In other business in an abbreviated Big Horn County commissioner meeting Tuesday, Engi- neer Bridges gave an up- date on the Bresnan con- duit work around the county. He said he has been watching the crew on the north end of the county. He said there have been some issues but they have worked to cor- rect them quickly. He said the line in a few spots has been installed too close to the roadway and he will send a letter to have it moved. Chairman Jerry Ewen thanked him for watching the crew, adding, "We need to send a message that we are paying attention." Bridges also report- ed that Road 20 and John Blue Road have been made passable, but a lot of work is still left on the roads damaged by flooding from Big Horn Lake earlier this summer. After an executive ses- sion the commissioners approved a sick leave bank request for one employee and approved half of the amount requested for an- other employee. Grants Administrator Maria "Eastman reported that a new energy retro- fit grant is available with a maximum of $25,000. She is seeking $17,000 to be a match for a project to replace thermal con- trols in the courthouse. The county is also hoping to use leftover funds from an earlier energy retrofit grant. She said she needs one letter from a plumber that worked on the boil- er project before the proj- ect can be completed and the county can request the leftover funds. The commissioners ap- proved a simple subdivi- sion for Ron and Kathy Boyd on the south end of Orchard Bench Road. The proposal divides a 9.2-acre lot and a 2.57-acre lot from a 50-acre parcel. The commissioners adjourned to travel to the Wyoming Association of County Officers confer- ence in Jackson. Dr. Roger )n OB/GYN To schedule an appointment, Call Powell Valley Clinic P_owcl!
