Main St., Lovell, Wyoming 82431 Byron news BY PAM;'LA COZZENS HOPKINSON 548-2471 pamhopkinson@gmail.com Last Thursday while Ed and Julie Riding were taking their nightly 'sunset walk,' they spotted what looked like a large cow in a field on the river bottom. As they approached to a closer vantage point, Julie casually said, "Oh, it's a moose." Wait...a moose? Yes, it was, but there is more to the sto- ry. Earlier in the day, the moose had casually crossed the high- way east of town and ended up in the field of horses where the little black dog resides (used to be So- lon Cozzens' field, currently Lar- ry Mulholland's). The horses and dog took it all in stride like this strange look- ing newcomer is welcome and belongs. But, the moose seemed to be looking for perhaps a less populated area and ambled along across Main Street, gathering a crowd here and there as he went. He is young, his large ears almost as big as his leaf shaped antlers, but he is a big guy, not in a hurry, but not really wanting to hang around any spot for too long. Moose are solitary animals, so on he traveled, giving people a start and a mad scramble to get a good picture. Of the many pic- tures snapped, the most clear was a photo by Cindy DeLacruz, as Moose headed toward the river bottom, which is where our sto- ry began. But, where did he come from? Most likely the Big Horns, I would guess, perhaps looking for greener pastures, having felt the cold weather moving in. As the harvest is winding down, I heard one gardener say he was really tired of fresh toma- toes and peppers, but I know next spring he will be the first one to get his garden planted. This year seems to be a blessed year for gardens. Mary and Waldo Jensen PHOTO COURTESY OF Cvm)Y DELAcetuZ Residents of Byron had a surprise visitor on Thursday, when a young male moose passed through town after spending some time bedding down in a nearby field. have been busy gathering and sharing the harvest of 14 apple trees. Mary recently had foot sur- gery and is to be off her foot for at least five more weeks. But you know that is not going to slow her down. I stopped over a few days ago and she was in the kitchen, in her wheel chair, in the middle of everything with freshly canned applesauce on the counter. Wally son l rr,m to can following her step-by-step supervision. I sensed they were willing and able but not particu- larly excited about their newly ac- quired kitchen skills. Something is up with the chickens around town. The Alan Clarks and a few neighbors are experiencing a dearth of eggs from formerly happyand productive laying hens, yet down the street the Giffords are getting as many as usual. Ed did mention having to trap a couple of foxes that had been digging into his coop. I hoped they weren't the cute little foxes I watched playing to- gether out on the old Marathon road loop north of town. There were two, and they were oblivi- ous to their audience. The culvert had attracted them and they were playing and crawling in and out from one end to the next. Hope- fully, they are still out playing and didn't find the coop in town. If you xp ]gt on chickens know why they decide to stop lay- ing, I'm curious, so let us know. There will be a "Meet the Candidates" night on Thursday, Oct. 18. David Peck has agreed to moderate. But the fun part is a chili cooking contest and free food. It will be in the cafeteria at the old school building, so mark your calendars. It should be cool enough to make chili a good dinner choice and you can ask questions about things you may have heard, read or have an interest in. Kyle Peterson Peterson leaves for mission Kyle Shumway Peterson, son of Ray and Cresta Peterson of Cowley, has been called to serve a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. Kyle has been called to the Arizona Tempe Mission, English-speaking. Elder Peterson spoke in the Cowley Second Ward on Sept. 23 and entered the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, on Sept. 26. He will spend three weeks in the MTC before depart- ing for Arizona. The mission cov- ers the lower southeast corner of California, Central Arizona and stretches across the state into a small area of New Mexico. Pat and Sylvia Crosby Six-month mission ahead From our files 100 YEARS AGO The Cowley Weekly Progress October 5, 1912 "Through Snow and Sun- shine" is the title of a beautiful five-act melodrama, which is to be presented at the opera house Monday by home talent. This will be one of the finest dramas ever staged in this city and should be well patronized. 75 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle October 7, 1937 Beans stopped a softball game at Basin last week, much to the disappointment of several hun- dred fans. Bean factories required all of the available electric power to continue operation, making it necessary to shut off the powerful lights which illuminate the base- ball field. 50 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle October 4, 1962 Photo: Bob Negro of the Big Horn IGA stands with the Grand Champion of the third annual fat stock show and sale held Satur- day. Negro purchased the ani- mal from Brent Price for a total of $432.90. 25 YEARS AGO The Lovell Chronicle October 8, 1987 Employees at the Georgia Pacific gypsum operation helped celebrate 20 years of operation in Lovell.

After spending approximately a week in training in the MTC, the Crosbys will report to their mis- sion in Texas. Cowley news BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 The Parker family hosted a birthday party for their moth- er, Linda Parker, two weeks ago. Linda turned 75 this year, and the children and grandchil- dren held the party at the his- toric Cowley Academy. The buf- fet supper was scrumptious as the vegetables and fruits were in season, the sandwiches were delicious, there was a beautiful cake plus other desserts and a large crowd attended the occa: sion to honor Linda. Linda married the late Le- Roy Parker and had three chil- dren, who grew up in Cowley and attended our school system. Linda has worked at the post of- fice for many years as a substi- tute with David Marchant, Jack Nicholls and now Debra Full- er. She also works at other jobs and has taught her children to work hard. She is a great influ- ence for everyone who knows her. She is a quiet, sensitive, pri- vate person and has a sense of humor, is generous and kind. We all congratulate her on her birth- day as she works each day and is an example and an asset to our town. We love her and admire her diligence and consistency. Kris and Stephanie Brim- hall have a beautiful new daugh- ter who was born Sept. 18 and weighed 7 pounds, 8 ounces. She has two older sisters, Kassidy and Kennedy, both 3. Kassidy has the gorgeous red Brimhall hair. Kennedy has her mother's color- ing and has dark brown, shiny tresses. Kielley is pronounced Kylie. She has a reddish tint to her hair. Each child's name has seven letters. Maternal grand- parents are Brenda and William Pearce. Her great-grandparents are Nan and the late Don Nich- olls. Paternal grandparents are Keith and Carol Brimhall. Her great-grandparents are the late Keith and Elese Brimhall. Con- gratulations to the new addition to the young Brimhall family and to their gorgeous girls. Ray and Cresta Peterson have a new grandson, who was born Tuesday, Sept 25. He weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces and has been given the name Colton Reed Peterson. His parents are Jordan and Brittany Peterson of Laramie. Maternal grandpar- ents are Ron and Shari Harper of Las Vegas. His paternal grand- parents are Ray and Cresta, and his great-grandparents are Le- Rose and the late Dee Ray Peter- son, Boots and Barbara Shum- way of Lovell and Drue and the late John C. Meek. Colton has a first cousin, Connor Reese Peterson, son of Reynold Reese and Stephanie Peterson, who was born the week before Colton. Cresta and Ray have two grandsons who look like brothers and we are all feel- ing joyous and thankful that the two little boys are healthy and, of course, most handsome. Ray and Cresta have been on the road al- most constantly the last two weeks meeting their grandsons and taking their son Elder Kyle Shumway Peterson to the mis- sion home in Provo on Sept. 25. The family has had much excite- ment and traveled to Riverton, then home, Laramie, Provo, and back to Laramie to see their new grandson and home again. They are exhausted, but exhilarat- ed. New births are miraculous events and we are thankful that the three babies born within the same week or so are healthy. On a more somber note, we have experienced two deaths in the last few weeks. Carol June Landes Banks died unexpected- ly Sept. 7 and left her husband, Ken Banks, to mourn her pass- ing. She and Ken were married 59 years and we not only pray for her sorrowful husband, but her six children who live in Cowley and Lovell. Carol was a beautiful woman physically and spiritu- ally, was a devoted wife, a histo- rian, and she left a legacy of ge- nealogy for her family. She was quiet and loving, always smiling and loved her family and people. Ken and Carol have lived in Cowley on the hill next to the late Grant Taggart family, which is now Deb's Childcare home, for their whole married life. We miss her smile, her per- sonality filled with love and send our sympathies to her husband, children, grandchildren, great- grandchildren, friends and all who knew this lovely, quiet, gen- tle lady. We all suffer her loss. Eva D. Lynn Green Asay was born April 3, 1917, and died Sept. 24 in Lovell. She leaves be- hind her daughters, Geraldine Townsend of Cowley and Diane Ley of Powell, and son Dennis Green of Casper, her step-chil- dren Jan Ellis and Scott Asay of Lovell and her daughter-in-law Judy Green. She was a joyous person who loved life and adven- ture, worked hard at various jobs during her lifetime with cheer and efficiency. She loved to cook and she was active and travel- ing until these summer months when she began to fail at age 95. She lived a full and adventur- ous life and loved every minute of it. She was kind and good and beautiful and has left behind her grieving children, grandkids and great-grandkids, and her sis- ters Julia Paris and Ireta Fuller Musgrave. She left behind many friends at the care center and her spirit of joy and love are assets she gave to her family. She was bright, cheerful and loving and we miss her and send sympathy to all who loved her. Even though she was 95, losing your mother and grandmother leaves family and friends with a loss because when your last parent leaves, you are an orphan. We hope and pray that her son, Leonard, grandson Mike Townsend, her husband TG Green and husband Orvin Asay and all her family on the other side have met her and she is now free of her pain with those who have crossed the veil. She was a beautiful person with a beautiful spirit and loved her life and lived it to the fullest. Our sympathies to her family and friends.
