October 16, 2014 I The Lovell Chronicle I 15 BY DAVID PECK The water and sewer mains and service lines are finished, street grinding is under way, joint sealing is to follow and if the weather holds, the Lovell Main Street Project should wrap up on time, project officials said this week. Timing has prevented the block from Kansas to Jersey from becom- ing a soft closure block, as just after sidewalk work and cleanup was com- pleted, the street grinding work had reached the block. The grinding contractor, Multi- ple Concrete Enterprises, Inc., of Og- den, Utah, started work Monday, Oct. 6, and reached Jersey this week. Rei- man Corp. Project Supt. Lloyd Wulf said at Tuesday's public meeting that grinding could be completed to Jersey by Saturday night, then move west to Hampshire next week. Grinding is being done for profile (removing high spots) and then tex- ture, Wulf said, requiring multiple passes. Next up is asphalt paving where the concrete street intersects with side streets and the highway at each end of town, and WyDOT Resident Engineer Ben Steed said a Mountain Construction crew should be work- ing by the end of the week, paving Jersey Avenue first, after which the detour will be moved one block west from Kansas to Jersey, opening up the block to traffic. Officials said there will be some temporary intersection closures during the paving work at Nevada and at Oregon. Joint sealing will begin this week as well, officials said. The work in- volves grinding and cleaning the ex- pansion joints in the concrete pave- ment, then filling and sealing the joints much like crack sealing is done on streets and highways. SUNDAY WORK? With warm weather critical to the process, the joint sealing contractor has asked to work this Sunday, Oct. 19, if necessary, Councilman Brian Dickson reported to the Lovell Town Council Tuesday night. Dickson said the contractor is checking church ser- vice schedules for Main Street church- es so as not to disturb worship ser- vices but would like to work later in the day if necessary. The sealing process can be quite noisy, he said. "There is a 90 percent chance they won't have to work on Sunday," Dick- son said, "but they want permission, just in case." The council voted to allow the contractor to work this Sunday if necessary. HKM REPORT Engineer Andrew Mattie of DOWL HKM Engineering gave his monthly update at Tuesday's coun- cil meeting and said the Main Street project is progressing well. "All of the water and sewer sys- tem has been tested and finished," Mattie said, "and we've put back all of the concrete sidewalks and curb and gutter. Grinding is progressing well. Fortunately, we've had really good weather. "The closeout date is Nov. 6, and I think WyDOT will make that." Mattie said the Town of Lovell has been very good to work with, not- ing the steady and helpful presence of Dickson. "Ninety-nine times out~ of 100, if you told me a council member would follow me around, I might ask for ex- tra pay," Mattie said, "but I had Brian Dickson. He's done a really good job, and we couldn't have done it without him. And he never takes much credit." Added Town of Lovell Public Works Director Doug Savage, "Bri- an has been great on the project. He's saved me a ton of time." Mattie noted that preparations are already under way for the asphalt paving, which he said could begin as early as Thursday or Friday or as late as early next week. "People will have to be a little bit flexible, but it will move pretty quick," he said of the process. "We're trying to open it up (Main Street) as quickly as possible." Mattie said work on the punch list will begin on the east end of town and work west, adding, "If the weather holds, we should be close to 100 per- cent by Christmas." annual Wyoming youth ages 8-18 have an opportunity to show what experi- encing nature means to them and ex- hibit their creative abilities by enter- ing the second annual WY Outside Video Contest.

Sponsored by orn Wita( istrict Lovell Inc: and Loveli Area Chamber of Commerce' Quick facts on Breast Cancer Breast is the most common in American women and the second leading cause of women's cancer deaths. The five year survival rate of breast cancer is over 90% when detected early. In 1940, the lifetime risk of a woman developing breast cancer was 5%, or one in 20. In 2005, the American Cancer Society estimates that risk to be 13%, or almost one in eight. 70% of all women with breast cancer have no known risk factors. Male breast cancer is a rare disease, but the incidence has increased over the past 25 years. Who Should Get Screened? The American Cancer Society's current Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines recommend yearly mammograms Mary Freund at age 40 and Shelby Frost FNP, GNP-BC continuing for as FNP, BC long as a woman is in good health, clinical breast exam about every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over, and that all women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and should report ANY breast change promptly to their doctor or nurse. Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s. Women are encouraged to make healthy lifestyle choices such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, and reducing alcohol, if a woman drinks. These choices can help reduce their breast cancer risk.The American Cancer Society also encourages regular breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early, when it is most likely to be curable. Mary Freund, GNP, FNP-BC and Shelby Frost, FNP-BC are offering free clinical breast exams and cancer risk screening for women when they schedule their mammograms at North Big Horn Hospital in October. Please call North Big Horn Hospital Clinic at 548-5201 to schedule your complementary clinical breast exam and cancer risk screening. Or call the radiology department at 548-5245 to schedule your digital mammogram without providers' orders.
