October 18, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle I 3 BY DAVID PECK In Cowley, there is no laundry list of projects that would be funded by the pro- posed sixth-cent specific use tax. There is only one, and according to Mayor Joel Pe- terson, it's work that needs to be done. Cowley wants to resur- face all streets in town and install curb and gutter, as well as aprons, at intersec- tions. The project would cost $2.3 million. "We have one project on the list," Peterson said. "We can piecemeal it together, but to do the task right will cost $2.3 million. "We want to do an over- lay on every street, which will eliminate the loss we will face in 10 years." Putting curb and gut- ter and aprons at intersec- tions would not only pre- vent damage to property and street signs caused by drivers cutting corners, it would provide more safety to children and other pedes- trians crossing the street, the mayor said. "There isn't an edge right now, and more and more kids are walking to school," Peterson said. DAVID PECK This intersection at First West and Fourth South in Cowley has literally become a gravel turning lane due to the lack of curb and gutter in town, which would be added to Cowley streets if the sixth-cent sales tax passes, Mayor Joel Peterson pointed out this week.

BY KARLA POMEROY Basin resident Linda Harp announced last week she is declaring an official write-in campaign for the of- rice of county commissioner. Harp ran for the Repub- lican nomination against Jerry Ewen in the August primary election and lost the nomination 1,339 votes for Ewen to 1,225 votes for Harp. She said a lot of people contacted her after the pri- mary election to consider being a write-in. "The race was close and a lot of people thought I should continue the race," she said. Harp said she was also concerned with the low vot- er turnout, saying, "We need more people to get out and voice their opinion." She said she recent- ly saw the following quote and hope it inspires people to get out and vote this No- vember. "It matters that you vote. It is your voice - and the only person who can silence your voice is you. So applaud, complain, march, protest, petition - these are your rights but, without your vote, they are mean- ingless actions, backed up by nothing." Linda Harp Harp said she and her committee will be get- ting out information mak- ing sure those who want to write-in her name know how to spell it and to make sure they understand the write-in process. People must circle the write-in box and write the name in for it to be counted. "I know it's a chal- lenge to do a write-in cam- paign, but that's not to say it's impossible," Harp said. "A write-in campaign can work, but people have to put forth the effort." l Go local Advertise now on Wyoming's #1 rated , Call small weei lynewspaper 54Ca21 17 I website I www.LovellChronicle.com J O and eve purcha ed ur sponsors ryone who ticket for )n Inc.
