Byron news Myrna will be missed BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 548-2472 pamhopkinson@gmail.com Myrna Jensen has been dealing with bad health for the past eight years. She was a patient woman by all accounts, and her passing was sweet relief for her. A beautiful funeral was held on Satur- day morning to pay tribute and say good- bye to Myrna, who has been a special addi- tion to the women in our community for 50 years. Her children did a wonderful job of sharing stories of their mom and her quiet yet firm nature. Heber shared a story about coming home from school as a teenager to find Mac, a small child, sitting on the floor in a large pile of flour he had just recently dumped everywhere in the kitchen. Myr- na sat on the sofa resolutely insisting that there would be no help with the vacuum as Mac's job was to tediously pick up the flour with a teaspoon and put it in the gar- bage. It took a long while, but Mac did the job. Lesson learned. Jan told of her room setting aside her dinner preparations to spend time needed to accompany Sue or Kaye with their mu- sic until it was practiced to satisfaction. Myrna loved books and classical music and learning. It is evident that this love of cul- ture was passed on to her children as they shared beautiful words and music that would have made their mom so very proud. Sue Jensen Decker, wrote and per- formed a song that would turn hearts to the memory of this special woman. It was so fitting for Myrna and was a very beau- tiful and sweet reminder to all of us who treasure the memory of a wonderful morn. Our sincere condolences to Dick and the family during their time of mourning. Thursday afternoon the showdown be- gan. Gary Petrich from Cowboys and Cooks Catering, Bob and Barb Acton from Hawg Heaven and myself from Pam's Kitchen all gathered in front of the old school to begin the Chili Challenge. We chopped, stirred, tasted and tested each other's en- tries. Some members of the community came early to check it all out. At 6 p.m. the judging began. Judges were Cameron Frates, Danny Marchant and John Na- tion. There were five different chili sam- ples in the contest. In the end, guess who won? You got it. I am trying not to rub it in too much to these professionals who did a great job. Our rules were few and far between and we had a lot of fun. The prize was 200 grand and in the end I shared my 100 Grand candy bars with them because I couldn't bear to let them go home empty handed. Those who came to the Meet The Can- didates Night got to taste a variety of chili with onions and cheese and for dessert, cinnamon rolls furnished by Sydney Hes- senthaler and Jeanie Petrich. David Peck did a great job of moderat- ing the panel of candidates for town coun- cil, Sydney Hessenthaler, Todd Wilder and myself. The audience asked some great questions and got some good answers. Mostly, it was just a great get-togeth- er and I heard from several that we need to do this type of thing more often. I hear Gary has perfected a great carrot cake rec- ipe, so maybe next time it will be a Deli- cious Dessert and Delicacy Delight Night. The Haunt is happening and the spooks are spooking. The people you see running from the building on Main are going back for more. One attendee went through three times in one night. That's just frightful! There will be more to come this Friday and Saturday night and the big finale on Halloween at 8 p.m. See you there and beware! Cowley news Cowley residents on the road before winter BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 Two weeks ago I wrote about J.R. Vezain and his accomplishments in rodeo. Last Wednesday evening, while watching the news station, Q2 in Billings, I saw him being interviewed by the sports reporter. The NILE conven- tion was held last week. J.R. looks healthy and quite wonderful, and as I watched his ride on the bull during the competition, it is apparent that this is a dangerous sport. The news- caster introduced him as the "Cowley Cowboy" and discussed the fact that this young man is in the fourth spot as a contender, and will be in Las Vegas soon. J.R. talked about his goal of winning the gold buckle as the number one spot and it was quite a thrill to watch this mature young red-headed man be- ing interviewed. We wish him great success and we'll follow his achievements as he meets his goals. ww* Bob and Sharon John- son flew to Othello, Wash., to spend six days with Sharon's mother, Helen Reichert. Mrs. Reichert is 95 years old, still living in her home, full of energy and enjoys her life to the full- est. Sharon said that her brother Jim Peppler of Tul- sa, Okla., flew in for a fam- ily visit. Her brother Jack Peppler lives in Othello, so their reunion was good for them all. This month might be called the traveling time before winter hits us. Bobi Jo Leonhardt just returned from Loa, Utah, where she visited with friends of the family. She spent two weeks down in Loa, which is about 130 miles from Cedar City, Utah. During her stay she drove to Manti, Utah and met with her daughter Nat- alie and her husband Zane Jones and granddaughter Rachael Jones. The Jones family drove from their home in Denver. She also saw her grandson, Seth Jones, who lives in Pro- vo. She said she had to get used to the 8,500-foot alti- tude, but after two days she loved the country and its beauty and had a great trip. Another couple, Joe and Pat Davis, returned from their two-week trip Friday evening. Joe and Pat flew to Phoenix to visit with their daughter Becky and hus- band Scott Fillerup and their two sons, Danny and Jesse. Danny just turned 8 and was baptized, and Joe and Pat were thrilled to be there. The two families in separate cars drove to the Redwoods and had a totally wonderful trip viewing the majestic trees and country- side in California. The only mishap they had was the car Scott and Becky and kids were driving in lost its transmission. Fortunately, Scott was able to pull off on a Pasadena, Calif. exit and was able to get his car off the freeway. The group called a tow truck and were waiting for it to arrive, and suddenly Joe remembered someone that he knew who went to school and played football with Joe at Utah State in Logan, Utah, over 40 years ago. The two couples haven't seen the Bill and Jackie Staats family for 20 years. His friend and fellow football player owns a huge construction company and he told Joe to have the car towed to his working ga- rage in Valencia, Calif. Bill and Jackie offered them their house for an over- night stay and so all six were able to talk and vis- it and renew their friend- ship. The car was unable to be moved, so Joe and Pat rented a van and the group was able to go on with their trip the next morning. Scott and Becky's car will prob- ably not be the family car again. Mr. Staats offered to fix it, sell it and send them the difference. It is good to have friends. The six piled into the van the next morning and drove to Corvallis, Ore. to be with Joe and Pat's son Jordan and Carey Hessen- thaler Davis and their chil- dren, Jackson, Derek and Chloe Marie. Jordan's fam- ily just bought a new home and have moved into it and so their trip ended with joy and pleasure. Pat said she and Joe put 3,000 miles on the rent- ed cars driving to Phoenix, then on to Corvallis and back to Phoenix where they returned the rented van and flew back to Billings. They had a fabulous trip. 26 00"Annual Abate [. 27, 2012 for the 26 th time! e Four Corners Bar in Lovell m.

"Ben, your pole ..." yelled Jason Zeller (left) when the 38-inch, 19.5 pound lake trout hit brother Ben Zeller's line at Buffalo Bill Reservoir on Oct. 18. Ben knew he had a big fish on the line, but didn't see it until after 15 minutes of wrangling. Jason managed to land a 19-inch rainbow trout the same day.
