CHRONICLE PATH CARPENTER PHOTOS “One Book” Wyoming author Cat Urbigkit speaks to a group of elementary school children during an event held at the Lovell Elementary School library on Monday. One Book Wyom BY PATl'I CARPENTER Mountain lions, coy- otes and bears, oh my! Students at Lovell Elementary and Mid- dle Schools learned about predators, sheep, shep- herds, akbash guardian dogs and donkeys who en- joy the company of sheep during a very informative visit by One Book Wyo- ming author Cat Urbigkit. Urbigkit, who lives on a working livestock ranch in Sublette County near Pinedale, has combined her writing and photogra- phy skills with her knowl- edge of‘ sheep and cattle ranching into a career as a children’s book writer. So far, Urbigkit has written about 10 books about var- ious aspects of ranch life. “This experience of visiting the schools is fan- tastic,” she said. “My hope is that I will show these children that you can live in Wyoming, work on a ranch and write books, all at the same time.” According to librari- an Gwen Walker, the stu- dents at Lovell Elemen- Byron News Lovell tary School prepared for Urbigkit’s visit by read- ing the books selected by the “One Book” statewide project. As part of the “One Book” project, a city, town, county or even an entire state picks one book to read, share and celebrate. Urbigkit’s books “Brave Dogs, Gen- tle Dogs,” “The Guardian Team” and “Shepherds of Elementary School student Addisyn Perkins gets a book signed by author Cat Urbigkit at a special “One Book” Wyoming event held at the school library on Oct. 12. Coyote Rocks” are part of this year’s One Book Wyo- ming selection. During her visit with the children from Lovell schools, Urbigkit gave colorful accounts from stories she has written during what she refers to as “writing from the range.” She delighted the chil- dren with a tale about how a donkey and a guard- ing uthor visits Lovell schools ian dog learned to work as a team to guard sheep and another about how puppies learn to love the smell of sheep by sleeping in a bed of freshly sheared wool. She answered ques- tions about everything from why sheep wear bells (so the shepherd can hear them moving at night) to what to do if you happen to run into a guardian dog while he is working (stay away from his sheep). She said many of these experi- ences inspired her books. Urbigkit’s other books include “Cattle Kids,” “Path of the Pronghorn,” “The Shepherds Trail” and “A Young Shepherd.” Each child received a special folder and book- mark featuring Urbigkit’s photography. Libraries across Wyo- ming are hosting Urbigkit with the goal of inspiring conversation, book dis- cussions and cultural pro- grams, according to the One Book Wyoming web- site, which can be found at www.0nebookwyoming. com. Seeking old school lunch favorite recipes BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 307 —2 72-8979 pamhopkinson@gmail.com Steven Hunder and his children have made Byron their new home. Steven is a 2000 graduate of Rocky Mountain High School. He purchased the home where Bernice and Solon Cozzens lived. The home has gone through a few different owners and remodels. I re- member when Joy Mulhol- land installed the big win- dows so she could enjoy the view of the mountains from her living room. I’m sure Steven will be happy in the home and we hope he will enjoy living in our community. He is an out- doorsy guy and likes wood- working. Welcome to By- ron, Steven and family. 't.‘ Susan Asay (Cliff and Florence) Mathis, another former Byron soul, recent- ly asked on the “old Byron folks” Facebook page about a recipe for the “spoon burgers” they used to serve during school lunch. I thought she was refer- ring to “nu-ways,” which are also referred to as loose meat sandwiches or sloppy Joes. But spoon burgers are different; they involve a layer of dough, meat fill- ing and a topping of dough. The only thing I remem- bered was the dough and hamburger pinwheels cov- ered with a tomato soup mixture and they were dif- ferent than what is cur- rently served. So, I got to thinking. Not long ago, Brent Carter supplied the recipe for the famous lunch ladies cinna- mon rolls and lots of Byron folks wanted that recipe. Back in the 508 through the late 60s (my era) the lunches those good wom- en served were amazing, with the exception of some of the vegetables, name- ly green peas,'which was really stretching it to say they were green. They were more like greenish grey mushy fare, but that was before we had access to fresh flash frozen veg- gies, which makes all the difference. Pearl Sessions, Gen- evieve Peterson, Lucille Petrich, Martha Wirth and other great cooks served up wonderful food daily. Everyone loved cinnamon roll day, and some even liked the pigs in blanket day, which was probably my least favorite. It seems everything was home- made, including the rolls, the gravy and most every- thing else. There were no powdered mixes or prefroz- en entrees. It was just good home cooking. At that time the lunch- room (now the town hall community center) was situated across the street to the west near where the southernmost pod is locat- ed. We would go up steps to the entry, get our tick- et punched, pick up a tray and snake around the out- ermost walls as we moved through the line. For an extra few cents we could get extra milk and a sec- ond slice of bread, which most of the high school boys did. Seconds were available after everyone had been served. There was a table set up over by the door where each of us scraped our trays. In first grade, Mrs. Nicholls had the original clean plate club, which ev- eryone wanted to belong to in order to get a smil- ing nod from the teach- er, which also began the sneaky clean plate club, which involved putting the peas into the empty milk carton. I hope that wast- ed food went to someone’s pigs. There was talk of starving kids in China, but I could never quite make that connection to our left- over slop. Several different reci- pes were shared with Su- san, and finally Elaine Abraham came through with the original from a page in the old cookbook. Now there is a search for an actual book to be cop- ied, bound and distributed to any Byron High School student who would be in- terested. So, the call is out. If you know of a book, or someone who has a book, let me know and I will pass it on to Jackie Hecht who has the knack for get- ting things like this done. I hope we will be able to soon enjoy some of those good old homemade good- ies again. C‘U‘l“ Miguel Gurrola will soon be leaving his home- town of Byron for his Ma- rine training. The Eagle Rock Development group has raised some funds and other locals are sponsoring a “glow run” the night of Oct. 24. Many would like to give Miguel a good send; off. We want him to know he has lots of support from his hometown, so take part in whatever you can to help show him we care and that we want to hear from him and will be pulling for him as he goes through the grueling training to be- come a Marine. nieces, October 15, 2015 The Lovell Chronicle I 15 Senior Chatter center to host another flu shot clinic next week BY PHYLLIS BRONKEMA Three different events will take place at the North Big Horn Senior Citizens Center in Lovell during the week of Oct. 19-23.

Also, only Linda Spragg and her helper(s) are al- lowed to cut the cakes. Co- operating with these things will better help the Center obey health regulations.

Schubert not Shubert Our apologies to Na- tional Park Service Rang- er Benjamin Schubert for the misspelling of his last Cowley News name in two articles that appeared on the front page of the Lovell Chronicle on Oct. 8 and Sept. 17. A lot to celebrate in Cowley this week BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 307-548-6901 John and Carolyn Barnes had a birthday party for their grandson Logan Allen Timpany, who turned 1 last'week. Logan is the son of Justin and Melissa Timpany and he and his parents live in the late Ed and Edith Cook Barnes’ home in town. Sixteen or 17 relatives helped celebrate and hon- or the young boy and en- joyed cake and ice cream with family. There were great aunts and uncles, nephews, cous- ins, aunts and uncles and friends. They all had a ball at the party. Carolyn served fried fish that were caught Sat- urday morning. She also served fajitas and jalape- nos and everyone had a wonderful dinner. Logan received many presents and instead of a birthday spanking he received lots of hugs and kisses. Ev- eryone was glad to cele- brate the beautiful young boy’s first birthday with the Barnes and Timpany family. Congratulations, Logan. Pat and Joe Davis are thrilled to have their son Jordan and his wife Cary Hessenthaler Da- visand children Jackson, Derek and Chloe home to stay, after living in Cor- vallis, Ore. At this time the young family is living with Cary’s parents, Jack and Syd Hessenthaler, in Byron. Jordan has a de- gree in horticulture and graduated from Montana State University in Boz- eman. He now works for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West museum in Cody as a grounds supervisor and landscaping expert. Cary works for her sister Lynn in Powell at Lynn’s Daycare Center and keeps busy. She loves being with her sister and with the children. Jordan and Cary’s children are Jackson, an eighth-grader, Derek, a fourth-grader and Chloe, a second-grader. They love the schools they are attending in Cowley and stay at Joe and Pat’s home on Sunday night so they can walk to school in the morning. The Davis chil- dren will continue going to school in Cowley until the Christmas break but will attend school in Cody af- ter the break. Pat and Joe have three Weimaraner dogs named Heidi, Quincy and Albert. The dogs have beautiful gray coats and are built like slim young labs. The grandparents are also tak- ing care of their grand- children’s two dogs, in- cluding Jack, a schnauzer and Charlie, a Jack Rus- sell terrier. She said all the dogs spend the day with each other outside and all come in the house at night to sleep. Last Sunday I was going down their block and saw a tall, beautiful woman walking five dogs on leashes, then I recognized Pat, stopped her to talk and laughed as those five dogs strained at their leashes. It was quite a cheerful scene and Pat was laughing and trying to talk and hold the dogs at bay. She and Joe love dogs and are very good parents and grandparents. Jordan, Cary and the kids are thrilled to be back in the area for the fall months. The kids love school and have made many friends, and Jordan and Cary are so happy to be in Wyoming again. Though they are moving to Cody, Pat said it will be so nice because it was a long 16—hour drive to Cor- vallis from here.
