Main St., Lovell, Wyoming 82431 Bob and Carol Negro celebrate 60 years of marriage Friends and family members of longtime Lovell residents Bob and Carol Negro gathered at the historic Sheridan Inn in Sheridan on Sunday, Sept. 16, to celebrate the couple's 60th wedding anni- versary. Family members in atten- dance were daughter Kathi and husband David Johnson of La- Crosse, Wisc.; daughter Barba- ra and husband Frank Holvik of Kristiansand, Norway, and their children Katherine Holvik and Andreas Holvik and fiancee Na- tassja Hemmingby; daughter Lori and husband Brad Feather of Worland and their children Ian and Jared and wife Mandy Feath- er; son Mitch and wife Annette Negro of Lovell and children Ty- ler, Brittany and Nicole; and Car- ol's sister Jan and husband Gary Roose of Yakima, Wash. Bob and Carol Negro were married in Auburn, Wash., on Sept. 27, 1952. After three months of marriage, Bob, who had enlist- ed in the Navy in 1950, was sta- tioned in Guam for six months, then later was stationed in Ha- waii and Japan before his dis- charge in 1954. The young couple moved home to Lovell and went to work with Bob and Carol Bob's father, Chuck Negro, oper- ating the Big Horn Market, which later became Big Horn IGA. They continued to work for the family business, which had become the Red Apple Supermarket, until re- tiring in 2002.

Byron news We lose another Byron original BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 548-2471 pamhopkinson@gmail.com It was with sadness I learned about Roger Sny- der leaving us. He certainly fought the good fight and was brought back these past few years from sev- eral near death battles more than once. I became ac- quainted with Roger in his later retired years, as he was part of a small gang that hung out every morn- ing at Mom's store. It was expected that by about 9 a.m. they would gather. Olden Uncle Dave (Cozzens), Dick Havig, Ron Wirth, Roger and sometimes RB Smith (the young- ster of the group) would still be there at noon to keep an eye on those school kids that hit the door in a scramble. They all had a lifetime of stories to share, and plenty offish tales. They loved to fish and would freeze their catch and then have a big fish fry and invite everyone who wanted to come. I think it was Roger who told me he didn't really like to eat fish, but he loved to fish. He spent several years perched on that stool across from the cash register and actually got to know my youngest daughter Holly from the time she could barely climb up on a stool next to her grand- ma Dorothy at the cash register. Holly would take the money from those coffee customers and make change for them. Roger watched her grow up behind that counter over the years of visits up here. He al- ways asked about her and I am so glad they were able to see each other during Byron Days after a few years of Holly being away. I remember Roger telling me that, as a teenag- er, his mom would help him get all slicked up to ride his bike over to Lovell to the dances that were held there for the youth. Roger had a ready laugh and re- ally enjoyed being in that store gang. One by one those stools were empty. It was always sad when one of that gang moved on. Their stool sat with the group as over the years it dwindled in size. Those from out of town didn't even understand the concept about going into a store and coming out empty handed after a few hours of jawing. But us small town folks, we get it or at least we used to. The leaves are turning. I have a vine with bright red leaves. The colors are amazing. As kids we used to blame the color on Jack Frost, who would touch the trees with his paint brush and bring fall in with cooler weather coming fast on his heels. Can you name the song with the line "Jack Frost nipping at your nose?" Do you give up? It is "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire" (thank you Google). A couple of nice changes taking place for you to notice as you drive around our village. Joyce Zarate has constructed a small green house that will give her beautiful flowers next spring to put in her per- petually beautiful yard. Todd and Debbie Wilder re- placed that giant window in what used to be Hop- kinson's Studio with an updated version. What a process. That was one giant window. Gary Gruell's home now looks like a new home. Lots of work and creativity have gone into joining two sections and tying in a new roof. I expected to return home from my Arizona vis- it to see all of the stud walls up at the "pumpkin patch" house but instead found what looks like blue foam Lego blocks being filled with cement. James and Jenna of Alotta Construction tell me that it is a very efficient building method. On Saturday we invited some friends to bring their sledgehammers and in return they got break- fast and cinnamon rolls. What I got was three walls demolished and a big mess. We threw out the whole kitchen including the kitchen sink! Thanks to the wrecking crew. It can only go up from here. Senior Chatter Walk to End AIzt eimer's exceeds $3,000 goal BY PHYLLIS BRONKEMA Last Saturday's Walk to End Alzheimer's held at the North Big Horn Senior Center was a smash- ing success. Mark Feit, Develop- ment Director of the Great Plains Chapter of the Alzheimer's As- sociation, came all the way from Lincoln, Neb., to attend the event. He commented, "I've never before seen a walk of this type end up to be so much fun." That is due to Director De- nise Andersen and her tireless game staff, always coming up with something new to make it that way. This year they had purple balloons tied to chairs all around the course. When the mu- sic stopped, each walker went to the nearest chair and won a prize, which was either cotton candy, a cupcake, a cookie, a moon pie or a popcorn ball. Participants were constantly coming in the building to claim their prizes, then head- ing right back out to the track to resume walking. Bret Savage, as the usual master of ceremonies and music player, added to the fun in his own unique style. "I don't know what I would do without him," said Andersen. The Center met and exceeded its $3,000 goal. "That's more than one dollar for every man, woman and child in Lovell," commented Andersen. "The whole morning was such a fantastic show of community, vol- unteer and staff support."

You, who are burning oil lamps, do you realize what your light bill amounts to each month? You are constantly burning up wicks, buy- ing new globes, new lamps and today a gallon of oil, tomorrow a gallon of oil. Do you realize that your lights are costing you more than up-to-date electric lights should cost you? 75 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle September 30, 1937 There's no housing problem in Laramie as far as three enterpris- ing students are concerned. John- ny Winterholler, Cowboy football and basketball ace, his brother Phil, and Lynn Doerr, have set up housekeeping in their homemade trailer house on a lot east of the university plant and they plan to live there all winter. 50 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle September 27, 1962 Photo: Reigning royalty for Lovell's homecoming were these in their homemade trailer three pretty coeds.

BY GARY EMMETr getgrowingwithgary@gmail.com As the long hot summer has turned into a wonderful Indian summer, the weeds are continu- ing to raise their ugly heads. One weed specifically has an ugly head or at least a painful one. Goats head, Tribulus Terrestris, commonly known as puncture vine, has been leaving its thorns all around. You might even have had the misfortune of stepping on one and feeling the painful re- sult. Goats head is an annual weed vine that is usually found in poor soils, along an alleyway, near sidewalks, or just in your lawn and flowerbeds. The thorny seed heads can often be found in the soles of your shoes and if they haven't pushed their way through to poke your feet, they will almost always poke your fin- gers upon removing your shoes. This devil's weed has been known to puncture bike tires. It is truly a weed with cruel inten- sions. Handle carefully. I have seen and removed some of these vines that have spread out over a nine square foot area. And along each ten- dril, there can be found many of the thorn bearing nutlets or seeds. I have found one of the best ways for me to remove the vines is to cut the roots, trying to keep all of the vines intact. I then can remove the whole plant and place it in the garbage. Upon removing the plant, you will no- tice the many seeds that have fallen off of the vines and are on the ground. Try to remove as many as you can. If you choose to use weed kill- ers containing 2, 4-D, glyphosate or Dicamba, know that the seeds will still mature and fall off of the vine. That is why I prefer to pull the weeds. Be prepared next spring for more plants to start growing. You can prevent the starting of new weeds by using a pre-emergent chemical next spring in the areas that have been infested with these vines. On a happier gardening topic, now is the time to start planting your fall bulbs for your spring colors. You can use a slow release fertilizer like bone meal, but it's not necessary. The bulbs that you will plant have already stored their energy to produce next spring's flowers. As you plant the bulbs, make sure that you water the bulbs well. The bulbs still need to produce roots this fall and watering makes sure that moisture is present pri- or to the ground freezing. Iris rhizomes should be planted now also. If you pur- chase the rhizomes, or roots, you will find them dried out. I will soak my new rhizomes in wa- ter prior to planting them. Don't leave them in the water for more than 30 minutes. When plant- ing, you should slightly cover the roots, but do not bury them too deep or they will not flower next spring. Believe it or not, spring is just around the corner. Okay, it is a few months away, however, the seed catalogs will start show- ing up here shortly. But there are things still to do this fall to get ready for next spring. On Oc- tober 10 I will be conducting a class with the Lovell Community Ed program on winterizing your yard.
