CLE November 21,2013 I The Lovell Chronicle ] 13 Rebecca and Steven Ballard and Harrison to wed Steven Ballard and Rebecca Harrison plan to wed on Dec. 7, 2013, in Salt Lake City. Ballard is the son of Brian and Melinda Bal- lard of Byron. Harrison is the daugh- ter of Steven and Pam Harrison. Her hometown is Boulder, Colo. Hooper book signing Saturday in Cody Lovell author Jaci Hooper will sign copies of her newly published chil- dren's book "Gary" from noon to 4 p.m. this Sat- urday, Nov. 23, at Moun- tain High Health Foods in Cody. "Gary" is about a lit- tle boy who gets into the bad habit of taking things that don't belong to him, a seemingly innocent hab- it at first. The book shows how a bad habit can grow to become harmful. Schutte book presentation Tuesday Author Karen Schutte will introduce her second historical novel, "Seed of the Volga," during a spe- cial event at the Lovell Branch Library on Tues- day, Nov. 26, at 7 p.m. According to librar- ian Sharalyne Nicholls, Schutte will give a Pow- erPoint presentation and will also have copies of the book to sell. The Lovell Branch Library is located at 300 Oregon Ave. Schutte was raised on a farm near Emblem and is a graduate of Greybull High School and the Uni- versity of Wyoming, earn- ing a Bachelor's Degree in Design Marketing. She presently lives in Fort Col- lins, Colo. Schutte owned and op- erated Interiors by Karen for 25 years, but upon her retirement she felt com- pelled to record her fami- ly's history of German im- migration. She dove into historical research and produced her first nov- el, "The Ticket," and be- cause it was well received she was inspired to pro- ceed with her second nov- el, "Seed of the Volga." As in "The Ticket," Schutte again in "Seed of the Volga" spins a com- pelling family story woven with rich historical detail, a press release about the novel promises. She has finished the skeleton manuscript for the third historical nov- el of the family-saga tril- ogy, "Flesh on the Bone," which enfolds the legacy and lives of the children of her first two books, Jake and Raisa. She hopes for a 2015 release of her third nov- el and has plans for three more family-based histori- cal novels. Byron News Congratulations to Ed and Jeri NeVille on 80th anniversary BY PAMELA COZZENS HOPKINSON 548-2471 Most people feel like they have achieved a special status by staying to- gether through their 80th wedding anni- versary. But Ed NeVille, 98, and Jeri Pryde NeVille, 96, have accomplished a true mar- ital record. They have been together for 80 years. Now that is a true milestone and a very high mark to strive for. If you would like to visit with Jeri and Ed on their anniversary, Monday, Nov. 25, you are invited to drop by their home in Byron and visit anytime from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The family has requested no gifts, flowers, etc. Just bring yourself and enjoy the company. Wouldn't it be great if they share their secret of how they achieved so many happy years together? Their kids (Denney, Wally and Cody) would most likely say it is the result of having such well-behaved, dar- ling children who did nothing to contribute to any grey hair. Ed and Jeri could tell us more. I hope they will. The Thanksgiving holiday is getting pretty slighted right now. Have you no- ticed how it is already becoming squished out of the limelight by Christmas? For years, no one put up decorations until the weekend after Thanksgiving, but now some expect that all decorations be up before. How did that happen? I suspect it began slowly by someone who froze their toes and fingers putting up lights in the cold that hit after Thanksgiving. It may have been innocent enough. We can put up the lights before Thanksgiving, but we won't turn them on until after. Then someone got over anxious and flipped the switch and then it all came tumbling down and everyone jumped on the bandwagon and now if you aren't lit up, well, you are out in the cold (literally, in the cold putting up your very late lighting). I love Christmas, the decorations, the sparkles, the music, the parties and, of course, Santa, but I'm feeling a little sor- ry for Thanksgiving right now. After all, it is the holiday of gratitude, the feasting with family, the counting of blessings, the giving of thanks. All of this is supposed to happen before the gift getting merriment of the holiday that follows. We have a week to just slightly adjust our priorities and give Thanksgiving its due, full of family memories and stuffing and pumpkin pie. We can then roll on into the Christmas season with some grateful perspective to carry us through. Clear your calendar on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 6 p.m. I can't say more and still be congruent with what I was just saying in the preceding paragraph about overshad- owing Thanksgiving. But I can hint-- fire truck, red suit, miniature ponies, pic- tures, party--get the idea? Good, mark it down. More details will follow after Thanksgiving. Have you heard that a new shooting range and archery range are in the works? Where, you ask? At the formerly swampy town property northwest of town. If you have any ideas for the range, let Carl Watts (new member of recreation board) know. We think it's going to be great fun and there will also be some gun safety classes offered. Open gym (no membership required) is on Fridays from 1:30 to 3 p.m. School age and up are welcome to attend. Supervision provided. Come join the fun. Note: The gym will be closed the day after Thanksgiving except for private parties. Club news DKG: Longtime educator book planned The RHO Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international society for key women educators, met Nov. 12 at the Lovell Bible Church. Fourteen area wom- en enjoyed a delicious supper of a variety of soups, salad, dessert and rolls. Marie Bramson, a newly initiated member, presented a program on draw- ing. She explained her philosophy of art and showed how to use light and shadows when drawing. President Shirley Tranas called the meeting to order. Roll call was taken by secretary Marilyn Tillett. Members an- swered by telling what they were thank- ful for. Minutes were approved from the September meeting. The treasurer's re- port was presented by Sally Wambeke. There was a discussion on the book "Let Your Light Shine." Any woman ed- ucator who has taught in Wyoming and was born in 1950 or before, is eligible to have their biography printed in the next edition. For more information contact Judy Ferren in Lovell. Before adjourning the meeting, Presi- dent Tranas reminded members about the state meeting to be held in Casper April 25-26. Local ladies attending the meeting were Chauna Bischoff, Marie Bramson, Dorothy Bush, Sandy Bush, Pat Dixon, Judy Ferren, Coleen Lewis, Marilyn Rev- elle, Marilyn Tillett and Sally Wambeke. Cowley news Fail leaves and mild temperatures mark the season BY DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 Linda Parker just returned from Okla- homa and Texas after a month of va- cation with her family members. Her brother, Ernie Roybal, was traveling to Florida and Texas last month and Linda went with him. They drove to Bethany, Okla., to see their sister Loretta Hecker and her family. Ernie sings at the Pioneer Day tal- ent show and we all have known him for many years through that event. Lin- da said it was so nice to visit with her sister Loretta because when Linda was around 5 years old, Loretta lived with her grandparents and she was unable to spend much time with her brothers and sisters. She returned to the family home when she was 14 and Linda and LeRoy were married and lived in Cowley where they raised their family. Linda's brother Lee from Iowa flew into Bethany to visit with the family members. Loretta, Linda and Ernie then drove to Ft. Worth to see their niece Leslie and her husband Kris Crawford and to spend the evening and another day with fam- ily. The family had a reunion of sorts, enjoyed each other tremendously and then went their separate ways. Lin- da went back with her sister Loretta to Bethany and they caught up with each other's childhood and married lives and their children and after a month Linda flew back to Wyoming. She said it was a worthwhile trip and enjoyed her first real vacation in many years. She said she saw the connection her family had with each other during their reunion. She's glad to be home after her stay but had a great time with her sister and brothers. r The weather has just been quite a pleasure these past few weeks. Most of us have cleaned the leaves off our yards, then the wind blew and lots more leaves arrived and this week I've seen many town members in their yards gathering leaves again. After the rains we had the skies were clear and the temperatures have been in the 50s. The plowing is fin- ished, the cows are moved to the sugar beet fields and it has turned out to be a reasonable time as fall arrived in all its beauty. We are all winterizing homes and cars. It has even been warm enough to wash our cars and we are all enjoying the fair days as we anticipate the cold months. My brother, Tom Tebbs, moved from Vegas to Cody recently and came to see me last week. He hasn't been in Wyo- ming for more than 30 years and he was stunned when we drove around Cowley and saw our new schools, the beautiful new homes, our Main Street and all the improvements since he was last here. We went to Cowtown Cafe to eat and the food is wonderful. We are all excited to have our local caf open again. Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner? This is a time when we celebrate our thankfulness and gratitude for our country, our homes, our family and our freedoms. Even though perilous times are upon us, we wake up with hope and faith that our way of life and democracy will somehow stand vigilant. All of us are blessed to be in this area and through troubles, illnesses and oth- er issues and through our grief at times, we celebrate with our loved ones, have hope and give thanks for all we have and endure. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday. New nurse to help expand school services BY PATTI CARPENTER Allison Tolman has accepted a position as a school nurse in Big Horn County School District No. 2. She will share her time equally between the middle school and the high school in the district. Nurse Mer- edith Despain will continue as full-time nurse at the el- ementary school. Tolman got her feet wet last year as a part time nurse at Burlington Schools. Prior to that she was a nurse in an OB/GYN clinic in Idaho. Tolman earned her de- gree as an LPN at Ida- ho State University in Pocatello. She said she hadn't thought about being a school nurse until the op- portunity presented itself when she moved here with her husband, Nick Tolman, who is the Music Director at Rocky Mountain Middle/ High School. "It's different, but it's fun," she said. "I enjoy the one-on-one with students and it is always fun for me to work with people more than just giving shots and IVs." Tolman said she misses working in OB/GYN, espe- cially since she is a trained lactation counselor, but she likes having weekends, Allison Tolman summers and holidays off, which is better than most nursing jobs would offer. "I could be doing shift work at a hospital, but in- stead I'm enjoying more time with my husband," said Tolman. Tolman met her hus- band when they both played in the pep band in college. The two still play in the trombone choir at Northwest College and she enjoys sitting in with the pep band at Rocky Moun- tain High School now and then. She always enjoys sew- ing and scrapbooking and her new work schedule al- lows more time for those activities. Club news Lovell Woman's BY WILLADENE KRAFT The Lovell Woman's Club held their monthly meeting Nov. 13. President Garnet Sorenson conducted the meeting. The program, "Israel - Ancient Artifacts," was presented by guest speaker Carolyn Alchele. She shared her experienc- es that she had during the five times she participated in archaeological digs spon- sored through the Universi- ty of Nebraska. The project itself is his- toric. In 1987, a team solved an archaeological mys- tery by discovering the lost city of ancient Bethsaida, a place Jesus may have visit- ed. It is built on the ruins of an even more ancient city, which is believed to be the capital of Geshur, a king- dom mentioned in the Old Testament. Carolyn said that she definitely has what is called the "Bethsaida bug." She enjoys finding shards of pot- tery, plates, coins, jewelry and other treasures. Ar- chaeologists discovered the older city's main gate and Club hosts think it was erected several centuries ago. In May, 120 students from all over the world worked in two-week shifts on the 20-acre dig. Due to the extreme heat, she said that it was very im- portant to drink two quarts of water while working be- cause if you waited until you thought that you were thirsty, it would be too late because you would be se- verely dehydrated. Carolyn showed slides of the area, shards, jewel- ry, vases, coins, a beauti- ful hand embroidered jack- et and a dress that she brought back from Israel. Her presentation was very enjoyable and informative. Hostesses Marilyn Rev- elle, Mary Jensen and Ar- lene Ross served a wonder- ful pumpkin roll and cider punch after the meeting. The next meeting will be held on Dec. 11 at 1 p.m. in the Big Horn Federal hos- pitality room. Tracy Bas- sett and Ranee Ferbrache will be showing different ways of tying and wearing scarves. i .................................................................................................................................................................................... i From our files i Mrs. Guinn lends a hand i i to restrain drawing on the bathroom walls i 100 YEARS AGO Cowley Weekly Progress, Nov. 23, 1913 Born to Prof. and Mrs. W.

But for the men and machines which now must transform the beets to sugar, the record harvest means they will enjoy the longest campaign in the Lovell factory's history.
