www LovellChronicle corn October 7, 2010 I The Lovell Chronicle I 11 i? BY BRAD DEVEREAUX During a quick tour of portions of the Big Horn Basin last week, gubernato- rial hopeful Lelsie Petersen made a stop in Lovell to talk to citizens before the upcom- ing election on Nov. 4. Petersen was born in Lovell, where her father was a ranger with the U.S. Forest Service. Her parents moved the fam- ily to Dubois when she was 2 years old. Peters- en said she was too young to remember much about Lovell, but she still has a photograph of herself as an infant sitting on a horse at a ranger station outside of town. "It's great to be here 60-some years later to re- new old ties and feelings," she said. Petersen arrived in Thermopolis on Wednes- day, Sept. 29, and made stops in Worland, Basin and Greybull before com- ing to Lovell Friday. She said the weather and the people she stopped to talk with were both great dur- ing her time in the basin. She spent time visiting se- nior centers, visiting Main Street businesses and talking to voters about their concerns. Petersen said she has been busy campaigning around the state recent- ly. On Tuesday, Sept. 28, Petersen had many ap- pointments including a press conference where Gov. Freudenthal spoke favorably about her quali- fications. She also had an interview with the Chey- enne Tribune-Eagle edito- rial board last week where she was asked about her position on virtually every issue in Wyoming politics. "It's a very demand- ing thing," Petersen said. "I love it. It sharpens you up." PUBLIC NOTICE Final .navment Ple e vote to continue the 3 mills and additional 3 mills levy for ....

According to her Web- site, Petersen's campaign is built on three primary concerns: balanced pro- tection of Wyoming's spe- cial places with the need to strengthen and promote energy production, invest- ment in communities, and finding affordable health- care solutions that keep hospitals strong and dec- tors in communities. Petersen said she wants to have a transparent gov- ernment so that Wyoming citizens can stay informed about what is happening within the government. Wednesday is Double Print Day -- 2nd set is free!

As women age and go through menopause, their breasts change and signs of breast cancer are easier to detect. If 1,000 women over age 40 get a mammogram: 920 women will have a normal mammogram (although a small number of these women will have a cancer that was missed by the mammogram). 80 women will have an abnormal mammogram and require further tests. After further testing, results will show: 76 women do not have breast cancer. 4 women have cancer.

First of all, I want to thank everyone who supported me in the Primary[ I appreciate it very much! Now, to catch up, the last several weeks our day to day operations such as marriages, title work, recordings, payroll, accounts payable and commissioners' correspondence have really picked up and that shows in the revenue that my office is generating. Our day to day operations are challenging due to the election demands and being short staffed. Employees are taking their well deserved vacations and we are sending an employee to the Lovell satellite office as scheduled. I am gearing up for the demanding weeks ahead for the General Election. The Secretary of State's office has certified Big Horn County's primary election. I notified the elected and nominated candidates and municipalities of the results. I prepared an official resolution signed by the commissioners that the South Big Horn Senior Citizens Center is officially a district. (Congratulations to the community!) I have put all state, county, municipal and special district board candidates on the ballot. I have proofed, tested, and produced the sample ballots. We are sending out absentee ballots, and for the first time, the election law allows us to e-mail ballots to our men and women in the military. I attended a three-day meeting in Laramie with county clerks from around the state to work on legislative changes to laws that appear to be cumbersome. Yes, I am pulling my hair out! I have found it necessary to spend time researching commissioners' minutes going back years looking for documents that may or may not have been presented to the commissioners from the airport board. Some ofyou may have noticed a little finger pointing going on of late. It seems like finger pointing can turn into quiet a little tar baby! What's the old saying about people who live in glass houses? I will leave this issue for now, hoping I don't need to address it further in the future. Let's not forget, this is a great nation! This country has some major problems we should be focusing on with our Washington politicians! What do you voters think of the war, campaign financing and the huge debt taken on to bail out the Wall Street bankers? We as voters can make a difference, if we keep discussing these issues with our nation's leaders! P/ease recycle this newspaper Northwest Colle w,o ,. 0 ge.
