CLE e September 29, 2011 I The Lovell Chronicle ] 15 Byron gews What's in a name? Plenty if you look at Byron history E, DENNEY NEVILLE 548- 7829 "What's in a name?" to quote Shakespeare, but not quite in the same context as Juliet's use of the phrase in her intimate conversa- tion with Romeo. In Shake- speare's version Juliet says to Romeo that "a name is an artificial and meaningless convention." Love struck Juliet was wrong about fam- ily names. Family names al- ways have meaning because they are tied to history in- volving the complete frame- work of people in a commu- nity. With the names comes the history of community, people, families and indi- viduals. My cousin, Bart NeV- ille of Casper delivered a packet of old documents to me recently dating back a century. These documents contain the names of many families that were the first to settle in the town of By- ron. They were the first to till the ground, move aside At the right is a photocopy of the signatures on the application for the incorporation of Byron in 2010. the sagebrush, cross the riv- er, build the bridge, survey the lots to define the streets, survey the Sidon and the Elk canals and secure the water rights, dig the ditch- es, cultivate the fields, grow and harvest the first crops. Eventually gas and elec- tricity came and they built the foundations, walls and roofs of homes, schools and the churches. People with names, not "meaningless conventions," did all these things to build our commu- nity. They pioneered the way for us. They ate what they raised, caught and shot. Now we can buy Chi- nese food prepared in Pow- ell, cooked by cooks that have moved here from China, and we can bring it to Byron and eat the tasty menu of delicacies while watching television in the comfort of our homes. We need to be grateful for the sacrifice and hard work of the honored names of our community, even keep- ing them sacred and not meaningless conventions of identification. One of the documents in the package, of special interest, is the applica- tion for incorporation of the Town of Byron. The date on the document is February 24, 1910. The 28 names listed on the docu- ment are of our !'Founding Fathers." If you can help with the recognition of these names, please contact me. This document will be on display in the town hall. What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. William Shakespeare Oh, what's its name? I can't remember, but it sure smells like a what-cha-ma- call-it. William Forgeterite Amanda and Cameron Mackay Wocicki wed Cameron Ross Mac- kay and Amanda Nicole Wocicki were married on August 18, 2011 in the Rex- burg, Idaho LDS Temple. Amanda is the daugh- ter of Dexter and Lisa Woodis of Cowley and Steve Wocicki of Riverton and the granddaughter of Vic and Vicky Strube of Greybull, Keith and Carol Rasmus- sen, Dexter Woodis Sr. of Cowley and Gene Wocicki of Riverton. Cameron is the son of Greg and Sheila Mackay of Redmond, Washington, grandson of Boyd and Gail Mackay of Salt Lake City and the late Glen and Lula Gilbert of Othello, Wash- ington. Open house receptions were held in Cowley and Redmond, Washington.

The sun is bright, the wind is still, crops are about to be har- vested, gardens are being gleaned. The machinery has been put together at the sug- ar factory and the farmers are ready to begin the beet harvest. This time of year is quite wonderful and if the weather cooperates, there will be many crops brought in with the hard work that brings the farmers a suc- cessful season. Some members of the community had visitors last week. Lena Jane Harston of Georgetown, Calif., spent a week in the Cowley area visiting friends and rela- tives. She was a guest of her sister Mary and Mary's hus- band, Bob Yorgason. The two sisters are the daugh- ters of the late Stott and Ge- nielle Partridge. While Lena Jane was here, a barbecue was held in her honor and it was attended by 37 relatives from Cowley, Lovell and Greybull. Among the guests were Lena and Mary's broth- er Stan and wife Diann Par- tridge of Lovell. Tim and Jerrie Townsend also had com- pany last weekend as their son Rusty and wife Kel- ly Jane, along with their daughter, Madelyn of Rex- burg, Idaho spent time with the Townsend fam- ily. They drove to the Big Horns, to the Beartooth Mountains, later had good food and just had a good time together. Leslie Blackburn and her parents, Ken and Janeen, hosted a barbe- cue for the Northwest Col- lege girls basketball team last week. Eleven team- mates of Leslie's convened at her grandparents Ken and Sharon Blackburn's home for the event. The girls were treated to ham- burgers, corn on the cob and all the usual buffet food. Af- ter eating, the group retired to the patio porch for visit- ing, a team meeting and all became better acquainted. Dean and Teddie Tip- petts have completed their second duplex on the land they own across the street from the Don Graham home. They are beautiful, have three bedrooms and two baths, and now both du- plexes are almost all rent- ed. One unit is still available and it is such a good plan to have duplexes in our little town as it is growing and developing. Another duplex has been started on the for- mer Tippets land by Randy and Karen Peterson, which now belong to Dr. John and Margaret Bennion of Bill- ings. The original home has been razed, the debris tak- en care of, the old trees and. shrubs removed and the land cleared. The dirt foundation has been dug, and each day it is interesting to watch the Bennion Construction prog- ress and continue. It is still strange to have that 1904 home gone, but how exciting to witness growth. John and Marga- ret have built their beauti- ful brick home on "Tuckes Hill" and daily one can see the end result approaching as driveways and shrubs and groundwork is almost accomplished. We'll be glad to have the Bennions back in town.
