Finalization of the counting of the votes for the sale of the company will oc- cur at this time, with people having until 10 a.m. to cast votes or to change votes. TCT CEO Chris David- son said they will be check- ing mail that morning to get any ballots in the mail and there will be someone at the Cody office in case bal- lots are dropped off Satur- day morning. Ballots can be brought to the meeting prior to 10 a.m. Also at the meeting there will be the vote for the oversight committee. There are 20 members nominated. The election of the oversight committee will only be nec- essary if the sale of TCT is approved, Davidson said. All votes cast will be counted and a member does not need to be present at Sat- urday's meeting in order for his/her vote to be counted. Davidson said he is hop- ing that the elections com- mittee and the board will allow the votes to be made public. The Big Horn County commissioners voted Tues- day on the TCT transaction. Alr some discussion about all the information they have received from different sides and asking for input, the commissioners voted unani- mously to cast a "no" vote for the county. One main con- cern expressed by all three commissioners was the in- formation from the Save Our Co-op committee that the price is not a fair price. The county, if the trans- action goes through, would receive about $13,000 from the 911 lines in Burlington and Hyattville. The Big Horn County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees voted "no" on the transaction at its November board meeting. According to business manager Richard Parker, the district would receive $280,000 if the transaction goes through. He said the district would have to ear- mark the funds for a specif- ic project, otherwise it would be turned back to the state to be considered as part of the district's overall general fund funding model.

He weighed more than 12 pounds. Tom was educated in the original Cowley grade school and high school. When he was 18 he worked for Taggart Construction under the tutelage of Paul Meeks and McKay Well- ing and the other workers. He was a hard worker and was promoted to driving heavy machinery at a very young age. Tom met Sharon Green in Sheridan, and they married. Tom and Sharon moved to Cowley after the marriage and he worked at the ranch with his dad, Jesse, and grand- father James S. Tebbs. Their three children Tere- sa, Tom and Tim were born in the Lovell Hospital. After a few years Tom and his family moved to Billings, where he began a sales job for the Fuller Brush Co. and soon rose to be their top salesman. He also worked as an in- surance man and that led him to further his ca- reer in other sales jobs. He moved to Las Vegas with Sharon and the kids and sold insurance. They later divorced. Tom met Marcy Heine in Las Vegas. It was love at first sight and they were married six months later. Marcy brought two beautiful daughters, Pa- mela and Barbara, to the marriage. Tom brought his own beautiful daugh- ter Teresa and two hand- some boys, Tom and Tim, to the marriage. Tom's career took the family to Salt Lake City and soon the couple had two more boys, Tyler and Dan. The family was complete and the two raised sex;en chil- dren together. Years later the fami- ly moved to Park City for a few years, then back to Las Vegas as Tom went on to be a successful sales- man until his retirement. He was meticulous, hand- some and diligent, and he dedicated himself to his ca- reer that he loved. He pro- vided for and loved his family and was a vigilant salesman even af- ter he retired. He could charm anyone with his personality and his high intelligence and drive to succeed. Tom was preceded in death by his father and mother, his older brother, Jesse M. Tebbs Jr., his be- loved wife Marcy and his son Timothy Tebbs.
