CLE e October 23, 2014 I The Lovell Chronicle 15 Correction Eagle's Nest grizzly bear It was incorrectly stated in the Cowley News in last week's edition of the Chronicle that a grizzly bear was trapped in the Eagle's Nest subdivision located between Powell and Lovell. The subdivision is actually located be- tween Powell and Cody. Meet Pastor Barth today The Lovell United Methodist Church will host an open house today (Thursday) for Pastor Jim Barth, who began serving the church this summer. The open house will be held at the church, 15 Park Ave., from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. BOB RODRIGUEZ Ready for the Byron Haunted High School tours are (l-r) Brendan 'Wolfman' Roman, Victoria Dickson, Evelyn Carter and Ashley Glumac. 'Byron Haunted High School' offers frightful experiences BY BOB RODRIGUEZ Because of its fright- ening labyrinth of horror, the "Byron Haunted High School" presentation for the Halloween season is PG-13 and not recommend- ed for younger persons. Ghoulish guided tours of approximately 20 min- utes are offered from Thursday, Oct. 23, through Saturday, Oct. 25, and Thursday the 30th through Saturday, Nov. 1. Hours will be from 8 p.m. until there are no more custom- ers willing to brave the scary scenarios. The en- trance will be at the main door of the former By- ron High School on Main Street. Each of three ghostly guides will lead groups of four to six persons through pretty much the entire length and breadth of the former high school. And it will be a frightful experi- ence. So says Victoria Dick- son, director of the Byron Recreation Dept., which is sponsoring the Haunt- ed House. Indirect light- ing, darkened rooms and hallways and eerie noises will be parts of the tours, as well as spooky props designed to scare visitors out of their wits or at least make their hair stand on end. For several days a vol- unteer crew has been pre- paring the site for the unnerving Halloween pro- gram. Proceeds will be used to defray Haunted High School staging expenses and for other rec events. "We're inviting ev- eryone to come meet the new and old ghosts of the school, as it is haunted," said Dickson. Cowley News Halloween carnival Monday at log gym BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK asked to bring canned goods to help race, which is a suburb of Ogden, 307-548-6901 .......... support the local food drive ................ Urals.an& Ryan lives in American *** Fork, Utah. We send our love and Halloween has always been a favorite night in Cowley, especial- ly for the young people. A lot of peo- ple decorate the outside of their homes with spiders and cobwebs and some have monsters to greet the trick-or-treaters. People put up orange and black lights that shine on pumpkins and scary doors. The costumes the young- er generations wear are fun to look at for the community members who stay home and give out treats. Some of them are very inventive. Porch lights are on and it just invites the little kids in, even if the weather is nice. This year the Cowley Recreation Dept. is sponsoring a Halloween Car- nival on Monday, Oct. 27. The carni- val will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Dinner will be served for $2 and it will consist of a hot dog, chips, soda and a cupcake. All the proceeds will go to the FFA. There will be fun games and cool prizes. The event will be held in our beautifully renovat- ed gymnasium. Those attending are Cal and Marlene Jones received some wonderful news last month. Their son Brandon and his wife Macy have a new baby girl born on Sept. 24, weighing in at seven pounds. She has been given the name Ember Ma- rie Jones and she is welcomed with love and joy. Cal and Marlene Jones are her paternal grandparents and Steven and Mary Winters of Otto are the maternal grandparents. The Jones family has had a year of fear and prayers, but fortunate- ly all seems well now. Two of their children have had cancer problems and both have been receiving chemo- therapy and/or radiation for many months. Marlene said that their fam- ily history shows no sign of cancer. Their daughter Shelley, who is only 48, has her cancer in remission now and their son Ryan, 43, has leuke- mia. They are both in remission and regaining their health and Cal and Marlene don't have to be gone for months at a time now to help them as they suffer through their treatments. Shelley lives in Washington Ter- prayers to the whole family and we are glad to hear they are regaining their strength and health so they can enjoy life once again. The town has a new member of the community, a baby boy named Logan Allen Timpany, who was born to Melissa and Justin Timpany at the Powell Valley Hospital on Oct. 7, weighing 7 pounds, 15 ounces. His grandparents are John and Carolyn Barnes and Mark and Jan- sy Timpany. Great-grandparents are Neil Clapp and Mary Timpa- ny-Clapp and the late Ed and Edith Cook Barnes. Congratulations to the family and all who love him so much. Melissa and Justin live in her late grandparents' home and Ed and Edith had a warm, inviting place with lawn, bushes, a chokecher- ry bush and decorations Ed made of western animals outside and oth- er scenes. How nice it is to live in a place where love was shared by a couple who were married since their youth. Congratulations to everyone. Byron News We mourn the loss of two residents BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON pamhopkinson@gmail.com This past week we have said goodbye to two of our community family. The first is Bill Martin. He and his wife Linda have lived in Byron since he re- tired. They purchased the former Cliff and Elizabeth Powelson home and made it their own. I always appreciated their efforts to decorate for Halloween and Christmas. I believe their yard was the first to reflect the holiday spirit with their inflatable scenes and other decor. He loved his dogs and it sounds like he was a fun grandfather to nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. How many grandpas rock out to Pink Floyd? He did. I know he is missed. Our condo- lences to Linda and her daughters and families. Laura Nation also passed away after spend- ing some time at the New Horizons Care Center. Laura was the daughter of Griff Abraham (brother to George). Her grandfa- ther John moved to Byron in 1906 and, not want- ing to have his boys work in the mines, purchased land three miles northeast of Byron and put them to work clearing sagebrush. His wife Katie (Gran- nie Abraham) called it her "Bonnie Brae Farm." She said it was the most beau- tiful place ever. Katie was born and raised in Scotland where she worked three years to raise the money for her passage to Ameri- ca. Grannie Abraham was Laura's grandmother. Now we see where Laura got her roots. Lau- ra loved living on the farm she referred to as "Abra- ham Acres." Just like her grandmother before her, Laura had a big heart and mothered and grand- mothered many besides her own. I have a personal mem- ory of Laura. My son Tra- vis and her grandson Syd were classmates in high school. One day at lunch, sitting across from each other, they became in- volved in what seemed to be a disagreement over pudding, which of course if you are a teenage boy, could only be solved by a food fight. They were both expelled. Laura and I talked and we both were so frustrated. Knowing our boys, we felt that being expelled was actually rewarding them. Since neither cared much about being in school, it would only serve to encour- age them in their bad be- havior. We talked about it and hatched a plan, which we took to Grant Sanders. The idea was that, in- stead of kicking them out of school for a few days, they should be made to at- tend school and we (Laura and I) would attend every class and sit with them in- cluding lunch in the lunch- room. Grant liked the idea, so Laura and I got to go back to school. Once the initial ribbing took place the boys both adjusted, shrugged their shoulders and went on with it. Laura and I had the joy of sitting through class after class. For me it was dj vu. I was once again in civics class with Mr. Doerr and math with Mr. Jensen. Not much had changed, except I used to like school, and now I was here to help make sure these boys didn't goof off again. Well, Laura and my grand ex- periment did keep the boys in school, but had no long- term effect on their behav- ior (although they were never expelled again). We made it through and learned our lesson. We have laughed about it many times over the years. Laura has family and many friends that will miss her. I can imagine Laura on the other side, telling her Scottish grand- ma Katie all about her be- loved "Bonnie Brae Farm." Till we meet again. Murphey receives national certification BY PATTI CARPENTER NBHH paramedic Scott Murphey received nation- al certification after com- pleting 84 questions on a special test administered by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Techni- cians (NREMT), testing his competency as a paramedic. "The single most im- portant goal of the Nation- al Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians is to offer assurance that EMS personnel providing treat- ment to patients--at their highest moment of need-- are competent," states the organization's website. "I didn't have to do this for my licensing in the state of Wyoming. It isn't required here, but it keeps me nationally registered so I can go into another state, like Montana for example. SCOTF MURPHEY It also allows me to cross state lines in the event of a disaster," explained Murphey. Murphey became a paramedic in Wyoming in December of last year. PATTI CARPENTER Brayden Harris enjoys a fort he made out of a cardboard box on Tuesday, Oct. 14, at the Head Start and Early Head Start hosted community cardboard challenge, held at the LDS Church Gym in Lovell. Kids challenged to think outside the box at event PATTI CARPENTER If you really want to see. young imaginations at work, just give a group of children a pile of card- board boxes. That's the ba- sic idea behind the "Glob- al Cardboard Challenge." So far, more than 100,000 children from around the world have participated in the annual event that gives children the opportunity to create anything imaginable out of simple materials like cardboard or other recycled items. On Tuesday, Oct. 14, the Head Start and Ear- ly Head Start programs hosted a community card- board challenge at the LDS Church Gym in Lovell. Children from the commu- nity put their heads togeth- er to turn otherwise dis- posable items into works of art. Children of all ages participated, and even a few adults were inspired to show off their creative side. The Global Cardboard Challenge was launched in 2012 and is now a popular annual event across the na- tion. Inspired by the short film 'Caine's Arcade' the Global Cardboard Chal- lenge is organized by the Imagination Foundation. According to its website, the primary purpose of the Imagination Foundation is to celebrate child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it.
