Froih oUr files 75 YEARS AGO JANUARY 2, 1936 The Lovell Chronicle: Members of the sales force of the Roney Sales and Service garage of Lovell re- ceived a $25 bonus for sell- ing the largest amount of winter accessories for cars of any agency of like size and classification in the United States. All Chev- rolet dealers were entered in the competition, and it seems quite an honor for a local firm to win over deal- ers in much larger cities. 50 YEARS AGO DECEMBER 29, 1960 The Lovell Chronicle: Byron school officials are presently trying to find a way to alter plans for the new school construction by $86,000. They found that modifications would have to be made to the present plans following a Dec. 14 opening of bids. The new building is to contain seven classrooms, a band room, auditorium and swimming pool. The total amount of the three low bids came to $486,148. 25 YEARS AGO JANUARY 3, 1986 The Lovell Chronicle: Slick Lovell streets and drivers not adhering to the laws of physics have pro- duced multiple "fender- bender" accidents around town in the past week, ac- cording to Lovell Police Chief Dave Wilcock. "The week of the first storm, we saw very little in the way of accidents. But as the holi- day season has progressed, so have the accidents." Wil- cock said. He noted that six accidents have occurred round Lovell in the past week, with several citations being issued. Byron news RACHEL GEORGE 548- 7170 I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas this year. Like other surround- ing towns, Byron woke up Christmas morning to a beautiful coat of frost out- side. This is the kind of frost that is full of texture and intricacy as it settles on every branch of a tree, blade of grass, and even makes the weeds look stun- ning. I stepped outside just as the sun was rising over the water tower, and the slight shade of pink in the sunrise combined with the frost truly created the look of a winter wonderland. As the day progressed and piles of empty boxes and other trash began to amass, I felt sympathy for our solid waste employees knowing that, if my house is representative of anything, they will have their work cut out for them on garbage day. People not from Byron may smile when they hear us talk about the great gar- bage service we enjoy here, but it really is true. They haul off almost anything we ask of them, and do it without complaint. Out of curiosity I visited with Jack Hessenthaler about the disposal of Christmas trees. He told me if peo- ple want their tree recy- cled they can take it to the concrete dividers on North Pryor Street. Otherwise, it can be taken to the front of your property and they will take it away. Last week I report- ed on the visit of the Cor- dova's son, Charlie. This week they were happy to have their other son, Clin- ton, home on leave from his military service. Clin- ton serves in the Army and has been stationed in DRUE TEBBS-MEEK 548-6901 The college students who were high school stu- dents just a few years ago returned to their families for the Christmas holiday and the New Year approach- ing. Many families had gatherings in large groups to eat, love and spend time with one another. Before we know it the schools will open for class and a new year will be upon us. The second semester will be- gin and relatives, friends and travelers will return to their respective lives. This holiday has been wonderful so far. Then on to 2011 and a new year begins. Tuesday, Dec. 21, was a joyous day for the Allred and Winters family. Steph- anie Allred, daughter of Mi- chael and Carmen Allred of Cowley, and Scott Work- man Winters, son of Nor- man and Marla Winters of Burlington, were married in the Billings LDS Temple and that evening a recep- tion was held in the cultur- al hall of the Cowley LDS Church from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Though it was a very cold evening, the cultural hall was filled to capacity as relatives, friends and loved ones celebrated the union of this young couple. Car- men's sister, Sylvia Bowles of Orem, Utah, attended the occasion and then she flew to Argentina to visit her parents. Many friends and relatives of the Allred and Winters families were in town for the occasion. Stephanie was beauti- ful in her white "mermaid" satin wedding gown, cov- ered in sequins through the bodice and train and chiffon over the satin. Her brides- maids were her sisters Ra- chel and Jessica in gorgeous blue satin dresses with brown sashes around the waist and lovely corsages. The groom and his grooms- men, Cliff Winters and Da- vid Allred, were dressed in navy suits and boutonnieres and looked handsome and cheerful. Stephanie's young brother, Jonathan, dressed in his navy striped suit, sat in the front room as the guests signed their names and brought their gifts. Scott and Stephanie's colors were navy blue and brown and the tables were decorated with blue cloths and brown coverings. Tru- dy Workman of Lovell made their cake and it was three- tiered on posts with blue and navy decorations. Car- men made her famous Ar- gentinean cookies and hot chocolate was served with mints and various condi- ments. One lovely sight was the blue satin quilt made by Stephanie's grandmother, Karma. Scott and Stephanie Colorado. He is scheduled to be deployed to Afghani- stan most likely in May or June. The Byron Rec Dept. met just before Christmas for children to enjoy time creating gingerbread hous- es. In addition, each child received a stuffed animal to take home. Bob and Sandy Mes- sick have their son, Ryan, with wife Amber and their two children visiting. They are here from the Atlanta area where Ryan is a prac- ticing surgical physician's assistant in a vascular clinic. In the clinic where Ryan works they perform procedures like bypasses in the legs or putting in a main line for dialysis pa- tients. The blood vessels of the body as a whole are what are referred to as the vascular system. Amber is the daughter of Sue Abra- will live in Powell and at- tend Northwest College for a semester. Scott is major- ing in human biology and Stephanie is taking curric- ulum classes before decid- ing on a major. Congratula- tions and may peace, health and love attend you as you begin your lives together. Last Friday in the Bill- ings Gazette there was an article titled "Organization seeks VA cash for home- lessness" written by Cindy Uken. The article includ- ed the fact that Montana could receive up to $1 mil- lion to help veterans and their families on the brink of becoming homeless. It is quite a long article, but the reader noticed a picture of a familiar face who is An- thony Snell, the coordina- tor for the Healthcare for Homeless Veterans Pro- gram. Anthony is the son of former resident Bill Snell, who grew up in Cowley with his brothers and sis- ters and his parents. Bill is the son of the late Jay and Frieda Snell and grew up in a big house where Linda and the late LeRoy Parker now live. The original home the Snells lived in was de- stroyed by fire. There are an estimat- ed 108,000 veterans in Montana and about 550 of them are homeless, ac- cording to a survey admin- istered in January of 2010 by the Montana Continuum of Care Coalition. This De- partment of Veterans Af- fairs introduced a $50 mil- lion homeless prevention program. It is the first time the VA will pay for services for spouses and children of veterans at imminent risk. Snell said the VA is now taking applications from private nonprofit or- ganizations and consumer cooperatives interested in providing the needed ser- vices. With funding, com- munity organizations could better provide coun- seling training, education assistance, limited finan- cial assistance, transporta- tion, child care, rent, utili- ties and other services to participating veterans and family members. This organization for our veterans and their fam- ilies should be a reminder of those who have served our country and their fami- lies, and help provide a new life for many people. The VA has founded a Nation- al Call Center for veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. It provides free, 24/7 access to trained counselors. Veter- ans may call 877-4AID VET (877-424-3838). We are proud of Antho- ny Snell, who lives in Hel- ena and has roots running deep in our small communi- ty. Good work! ham and is able to help in the care of her mother while here. This time of year a fa- miliar sight around Byron is the many flocks of geese to be seen flying overhead. Last week I looked out my kitchen window and saw one of the largest groups of geese in my neighbor Tom L angston's field that I have ever seen before. There were several hundred feeding on what I assume were oats planted there as a cover crop for next year's alfalfa. I clearly lacked the stealth needed to get very near the geese since in my efforts to obtain a close-up photo I eventually scared them off. The sound of that many birds taking off together however was amazing. The whole expe- rience was another small reminder of why I love liv- ing in Byron.
