CHRONICLE October 6, 2011 I The Lovell Chronicle I 13 Cowley news DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 Mike Whalen, formerly of Cow- ley, the son of Ruth Jensen Deardeuff and the late Carroll Whalen, now liv- ing in Queen Creek, Ariz., with his wife Phyllis, called a few weeks ago to tell me about his son-in-law, Dan- iel Henderson of Boston, who is in a jazz band called The New Hot 5. Dan- iel is married to their daughter Mi- chele. Michele sent an e-mail concern- ing the band's summer in France. Daniel studied music in Boston at the New England Conservatory and achieved a master's degree in music and is now teaching music at Harvard. The jazz band called The New Hot 5 is comprised of the follow- ing young men: Steve Call, who plays the tuba; Daniel Henderson on the trumpet; Joshua Payne, banjo; Clark Burnside, clarinet; and Will Kimball, trombone. This past summer Daniel and his band were invited to perform in a jazz festival in the French Alps, called Jazz en Vercors. The bandlead- er is a BYU music professor and the rest of the band are former BYU stu- dents. The group traveled around to neighboring villages to perform con- certs. The group stayed a few nights in a town called Villard de Lans and before the concert they traveled to a village called Autranz, France, which was located in a beautiful countryside with a field of cows next door to the venue. The bandleader, Steve Call, de- cided to pull out his tuba and start playing a tune for the cows. Daniel followed suit and pulled out his trum- pet and joined in playing ' When The Saints Go Marching On." It was a de- light to see. The cows perked up im- mediately and began to gather around to listen to the music. As the group had been travel- ing around they noticed how beauti- ful the cows were in the Vercors re- gion of France. The cows wore their rapt attention. People began to arrive for the concert and gathered around smiling and laughing. It was a de- lightful experience. The video was filmed and posted on YouTube and entitled "Jazz For Cows" and then picked up by a few popular websites and began to get ex- posure. The first show to pick it up was "Good Morning America." Soon afLer that Conan O'Brian showed a clip of the video as well as "The Today Show" and "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. It has also been shown on local channels all over the nation. The video now has more than 100,000 views on YouTube and more than 250,000 views on Yahoo. You can find out about the band at www.newhoth.com where one can learn what the band is doing now and in the future. You can also see a video of their serenade to the cows on their website. The band also has a Face- charming cowbells and wagged their book page and one can get updates tails happily to the music. They tru- about them. The band hopes that this ly seemed like happy cows. Well, the exposure will lead to future gigs and whole band joined in and played a few invitations so they can take part in songs for the cows as they stood in jazz festivals all over the world.

DENNEY NEVILLE 548- 7829 nevilleart@tctwest.net Pressed with nostalgia I write of some things that are missing, things gone from the current school proper- ty in Byron, erased through the years by sod, concrete, fire, demolition and recon- struction-pavement, trees and shrubbery. The founda- tions of three previous school buildings and a large stone church previously occupied the same area. Focus on the second school in Byron, the one that burned down in December of 1924. In the bell tower was a large bell, impressive for a small town at that time. On that March morning when the building caught fire, someone was able to ring the school bell long enough to hopefully summon help. All was in vain, however. The school was totally con- sumed. The bell survived. AfLer the fire the bell was moved to a place northwest of the football field and placed on the ground where it stayed, abandoned for a number of years. I last saw it there in the late 50s, 1958-59. The bell was large in size, dark from fire, rust and time. When we were young and limber, not old and rusted as we are now, we would stand on top of the bell and jump off to see who could land the furthest away from it. I have often wondered what became of that old school bell. Remembering Ernest Hemmingway's book, "For Whom the Bell Tolls," often reminds me of that oldbell, abandoned there for so long, silenced from the sound it was designed to make. Ed and Jeri NeVille (I know them well), still liv- ing, 96 and 93, both heard the school bell's last ring- ing sounds and watched the school burn. Dad remembers very well the sound of the bell that March morning as it rang out for the last time in our community. As far as I know, they are the last, living members of our community to hear the old school bell ring. We can only wonder about its fate. When I remember it, I feel like we neglected and lost something of historical value. To have the bell now would be to have something tangible to connect us with an important event in our community's history. If there are others within the read- ership of the Chronicle who witnessed this event, please let me know (I will keep your age a secret). Cindy Cordova has re- minded me that the Byron Memorial Park committee is moving forward with plans to improve the park area. Funds for a tree in memo- ry of Vera Jones Poe have been donated. The tree will be purchased and planted somewhere in the park area next spring. Anyone wishing to donate to the park com- mittee should contact Cindy. Work on the new By- ron Bridge is going well and should be open to the public for use sometime after the middle of October. This past week I spoke with one of the DOT engineers, as I photo- graphed the progress being made. He described how the new concrete deck and the approach from the north and the south would be done. It should give the bridge many years of trouble free use. Maybe we should have a ceremony and bust a bottle of root beer on it. The Byron Troll will be back and might demand some sort of ceremo- ny, significantly acknowledg- ing his return. Get growing with Gary GARY EMMET[ getgrowingwithgary@ gmail.com My last article about getting ready for spring sparked a few detailed questions. Can I divide my daylilies now, and can I still plant trees this late? The weather that we have been experiencing lately has been incredible. Daylilies and other peren- nials such as Shasta Dai- sies can be divided at this time. Trees, of all kinds, can be planted this time of year. The soil temperature will continue to stay warm even as the ambient tem- peratures start to cool. Looking out at the extended weather forecast indicates what a beautiful October it seems to be turning into. These conditions make for ideal planting of trees and shrubs. Preparing the soil where you will plant your trees and shrubs is very important. The hole that you dig should be at least twice the size of the root ball of the plant. If your root ball is 18 inches wide, make sure the hole that you dig is 36 inches wide. Make sure to dig the hole deep enough that the root ball of the tree sits slightly lower than the level of the ground around it. Slightly means no more than two inches deeper than the soil. You do not want a deep settling pond around the trunk of the tree, nor do you want the surrounding soil to be mounded up against the trunk of the tree. Proper hole prepara- tion and using loose dirt mixed with compost to back fill around the root ball al- lows for quick root devel- opment and plant estab- lishment. Water the plant in thoroughly using a root stimulator or a mild wa- ter-soluble fertilizer. This will also aid in root devel- opment. I like to add water to the hole prior to back fill- ing with soil, and then once again, as I have the plant covered. This time of year as plants are going dor- mant, roots can become bet- ter established when given the proper conditions. Yes, trees and shrubs and even perennials can be planted this late into the season. I would recom- mend also to mulch around the newly planted plants. Cover the area that you dug with mulched leaves and grass clippings two to three inches deep. When buying plants at this time, make sure it is a plant that is hardy for this area. Some business- es might be clearing out plants that will not sur- vive the winter. Make sure that the plants are hardy for growing zones 2, 3, or 4. Zone 5 plants are question- able and more than likely will not make it through the winter. Can I bring in some plants and winter them over inside? Please submit wedding and engagement announcements to us via emaih Icnews@tctwest.net; fax:307-548-2218; or bring to our office at 234 E. Main St., Lovell, Wyoming There are two main problems about bringing in plants from outside to the inside for the winter: bugs and light. Make sure that your plants are bug free before bringing them in. There are plenty of bugs that can hide in the soil and on the underside of the leaves that you might not see. Isolate these plants so that they do not infest your houseplants. You can spray and use insecticides to con- trol the bugs, but be careful of what you use. Lighting is critical. A south facing window is op- timal for providing win- ter light for your plants. You might need to supple- ment this light, too. If your plants start getting leggy or they are stretching for a light source and their leaves have lost their deep color and sheen, you do not have enough light for those plants. Move the plants or add more light. If you have any garden- ing questions please email them to getgrowingwith- gary@gmail.com and I will try to answer them here in the paper. Thanks to Ted- die, Joyce, Janice, and Sta- cey for your questions this week. Breast Cancer Month cancer is the most common cause cancer in women and the second most common cause of cancer death in women in the United States. While the majority of new breast cancers are diagnosed as a result of an abnormality seen on a mam- mogram, a lump, or change in consistency of the breast tissue can also be a warning sign of the disease Increased awareness of breast cancer risk in the past years has led to an increase in the number of women undergoing mammography for screening, leading to detection of cancers in earlier stages and an improvement in survival rates. Still, breast cancer is the most Com- mon cause of death in women between 45-55 years of age. With advances in "screen- ing, diagnosis, and treat- ment, the death rate for breast cancer has declined. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
