October 15, 2015 The Lovell Chronicle I 7 BY DAVID PECK A local business spe-' cializing in small engine and power sports engine repair has relocated from Byron to Lovell. Brothers Wayne and Darrell Brost and Wayne’s son Ethan opened 3B Small Engine Repair about a year ago, working out of the old Byron/Rocky Mountain High School welding shop at the for- mer school building in By- ron after purchasing the business from Chris and Mandy Joy. Although the Brosts said they were treated very well in Byron, the lo- cation didn’t offer running water or a restroom, nor heat in the winter, so they have moved to 160 Sho- shone Ave. in Lovell, just across the railroad track from Greenhouse Gardens on the north side of Lovell. The building in Lovell housed Wayne Black- burn’s shop for many years and later Edwards Filter Cleaning. Along with the move, principal operators Wayne and Ethan Brost are pro- moting their business as 3B Small Engine and Pow- er Sports, noting that they work on more than just lawnmowers, also repair- ing ATVs, snow machines and side-by-sides. 3B can also order ac- cessories like snowplow blades, winches and other items including after-mar— ket performance parts and OEM parts built by the manufacturer. “We’ve got a new deal- ership for OEM parts, a good supplier,” Wayne said. Ethan said he likes the location of the new op— eration, which will be visi- ble to greenhouse custom- ers during the spring and summer months. “It’s a matter of loca- tion, location, location,” Wayne said, and add- ed Ethan, “What it real- ly comes down to is the DAVID PECK Ethan (left with son Max) and Wayne Brost are pleased with the new location of 3B Small Engine and Power Sports at 160 Shoshone Ave. in Lovell, across the railroad track from Greenhouse Gardens. 3B Repair opens new shop in Lovell storefront.” The Brosts have built up the business in a num- ber of areas, they said. “We have a large in- ventory now,” Ethan said. “We have everything for Chainsaws and a ton of stuff for power sports like oil, filters and belts. If we need to order something it can be here in two days, or one day with overnight shipping. “We also have a large inventory for lawnmow- ers like blades, belts, tire tubes, filters, oil, plugs and seats and seat covers. If it has to do with a chain- saw, weed eater or lawn- mower, we have it or can get it.” 3B is open Wednes- day through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 pm. and Sat- urday from 9 a.m. to 1 pm. Appointments can be made by calling 307- 202-0446. The Brosts of— fer pick up and delivery throughout North Big Horn County.

Recognized since 2012 as the home of the Beng- hazi attack, Libya claims a long, rich history touched by Berbers, Phoenicians, Persians, the Spanish and Ottoman empires and an Italian occupation that end- Zambezi? palm/o mer. ed during World War II.

Griffin said the team learned from parents inter- viewed that families are en- gaged and there is good com- munication. He noted that many said they felt their in— put was valued. The team suggested a few areas of focus that could take “what’s already great and make it even better.” Those areas include us- ing student and teacher data more effectively and devis- ing a system to assess the district’s curriculum and to evaluate its effectiveness. He concluded by show- ing the district’s scores, not- ing that they are “way above average” and “quite possibly Overall Score Teaching Learnig Impact Leadership Capacity Resource Utilization the highest scores” he has ever seen. The overall score for the district was 336.99 compared to an average of 278.34. In the teaching and learn- ing area the district scored 318.25 compared to the net- work average of 268.94.

He said the new kitchen would be much larger and allow for food preparation for very large groups. He said other communi- ties have applied for similar grant funds and have been 5:, g :gFoster ~ very successful, emphasiz- ing that, contrary to rumors, the facility is not a private club; it is for public use and available to everyone in the community. Citizens of Cowley were sent a survey recently ask- ing for input and ideas re- garding the project. About 50 responded, according to town clerk Lisa Woodis. A rough drawing was presented at the meeting with initial recommenda- tions for the layout of the addition.

We also used to have a craft fair. This would be a great place to have that, too. There are a lot of opportunities for the use of this facility. We’re already using the log gym way more than I thought we would ever use it. This would allow us, as a commu- nity, to use it even more.” ' roentgen. ac. 3mm $701142 117/0142?! 8) W—m—WFM Gm 8’ Caz/med W Wm 92mg I 164 E.
