Miller said a pre-cast concrete box will be used. The intersection will be widened, he said, along with Second Street. Ultimately, he said, Sundance Creek will all be taken under- ground in that area. 5. Ordinances: The council got back to consideration of a flood plain ordinance on which it had two readings last year before halting action when questions arose on the third reading. An Aug. 1, 1989 dead- line faces the council in passing the ordinance. Main purpose of the ordinance is to protect the community from someone who might build in the flood plain and endanger the city in some way. Revisions will be made in the ordinance and the council will hold the first reading on it at its March meeting. Vernon Montgomery of the city planning commission, explained the purpose of a zoning ordinance for the council He said the proposed ordinance is flexible and meets the community's own unique needs. Basically, Montgomery said, the ordinance retains an indivi- dual's freedom but still exer- cises some control. Miller suggested that the planning committee put to- gether a model zoning ordin- ance in the next few months so that the council could consider it but not necessarily pass such an ordinance. 6. Other business: The council examined the city's equipment needs and the mawr said the equipment is in bad shape. Some needs to be gotten rid of, he said, or else the city will just have a pile of junk. Kiplinger said the highest priority need at the moment is a tractor to pull the city's rotary mower in order to get the mowing done in the city. Also discussed was getting rod of an old city car and pickup and adding a utility vehicle - a Blazer type - to the city's fleet. The council also discussed water deposits and approved a raise in the water deposit from $25 tyo $50. In addition, the city maintenance crew was given authority to turn off the water when a renter vacates a dwell- ing. The council also gave its approval to a request from the school district to make a no parking zone on Fourth Street at the old high school so the district will have space to fill its newly-installed coal bin there. The city considered an offer from Sundance State Bank to buy the building and property adjacent to the city hall. Miller said the city really has no need for the building and the council decided not to obtain the pro- perry. The city could have pur- chased the building for $21,000 cash or $25,000 under a lease- purchase agreement. Use of snowmobiles in the city was examined by the council and Police Chief Joe Popham said the city is not the place for snowmobiles. The president of the Bear Lodge Club will be invited to the next council meeting. The council indicated it needed some input from the club before taking any action to eliminate the nuisance. Miller advised the council that Banner and Associates plans to produce an acceptable report on a proposed new air- port. The FAA had withheld payment of funds to the city until Banner came up with a First Baptist Church satisfactory report. 10th and Cleveland ~ ~,~he council ~l~'!~pDroved a in.fwl , ~ W~.ot,~, 11.30 ,'~ WAd~sday e~est from~sh~dustrtes Sunday School - , ~, ......v - "~'~ ~ "to ~p1~rate thre~ l~l~g~'vbhml'ds Night Prayer meeting - 7:30 p.m. on the Canyon road and also Church of Christ 123 Edna Preacher - Steve Albin Bible Study- 10:00 a.m. Worship- 11:00 a.m. Evening Worship - 6:00 p.m. Wednesday Night Bible Study - 6:00 p.m. Chapel of Faith 116 S. 3rd Pastor R.W.

"Women in Science," photo exhibition to be held here "Women In Science," a photographic exhibition, will be on display February 13-24 at Sundance Elementary School. Numerous women have made important contributions in a variety of scientific fields, often with little recognition or reward for their accomplishments. "Women in Science" is spon- sored by the University of Wyoming Art Museum in an attempt to increase public knowledge of women's contri- butions and to encourage modern women to fulfill their potential in seeking careers in science. The exhibition is composed of 24 photos, plus identifying information describing the nature and significance of contributions made by each of the women scientists selected from a broad span of history. The example shown is "Florence Rena Sabin." Arrangements for the "Women in Science" traveling exhibition were handled by the UW Cultural Outreach Pro- gram, a concerted effort to make campus cultural resources available in all parts of the state. This program is funded in part by the National Endow- ment for the Arts through the Wyoming Council on the Arts and the Friends of the UW Art Museum. Traveling bake sale scheduled A traveling bake sale will be held Monday by the Sundance Friends of the Library. Persons willing to donate bake sale items should bring them to Crook County Library between 8 and 9 Monday morning. Following the bake sale, a luncheon will be held from 12 noon to 1 p.m. at the library with new officers to be install- ed. There is no charge for the luncheon to which the public is invited. Let it snow: Mount Rainier in WashIngton state may take the prize for the snowiest place on earth. Ranger Rick magazine reports that over 48 feet of snow fall there in a normal year. i It was late on a winter afternoon when the phone rang in the office. I picked it up and a voice I hadn't heard for some time rasped, "Allen. See you in 15 minutes. R's time we had a conflab." In the old days I used to hold quaint little tete-a-tetes with a mangy character named Mr. Q, a man for whom I had developed quite a liking. We used to meet under the Third Street bridge - the old one, not the new one. I threw a light pack together and mushed on over to Third Street. There wasn't anyone there, so I tore up some old gum wrappers, threw in an old cigarette package and a couple of bum checks and started a little warming fire in an old Crisco can. Sundance Creek burbled by, some of it under the ice and snow. There was a bit of open water and an old beer can, an empty milk carton and a couple of other things for which words fail me, floated past. All the good things in life. I heard a honking sound, like a wild goose headed for the ligh lonesome, and a muffled curse and I turned in time to see Q, his scrawny frame outlined against the sky, come sliding down the steep bank. His high heeled boots were dug in as though he had a" live one on the end of a rope and his heels made deep grooves in the snow. Q lost control, did a split S and an Austrian schluss, and ended up in a limp heap. I examined the old geezer closely. A pair of beaded leather pants hugged his skinny legs and a faded Mexican serape clasped his thin shoulders. A World War I flying helmet rode atoD his bald head. the goggles rushed high on his dome. He picked himself up finally about the time I thought he was a goner. His faded blue eyes blinked beadily at me, as ferocious as a politician away from the trough. Q eased his frail body onto an old wooden crate that said, in faded letters, "Gate City-Sunshine Dairies." He glared at me and I smiled genially, turning my charm loose on him. "Hi, ya, Q. Long time no see. ' ' Q grunted and hauled a gunnysack full of Red Man chewing tobacco out of the inner recesses of his costume. He stuffed tobacco into his maw like a gang of stokers firing the boilers on the Lusitania. He finished and sat there humped up like a cold bullfrog. Suddenly, his jaws rotated like the wheels on a locomotive spinning on slippery rail. He launched about a pint of dark liquid down the stream in an easterly direction. The Pactola watertable rose about eight feet and a meterologist in Southern California took a hasty glance at his equipment and muttered something about 8.6 on the Richter scale. Q smiled grimly. "How are you, Allen. Boy, you ain't getting any younger - or prettier either." I nodded and popped a Hershey kiss into my mouth, checking to see that Doc Peters wasn't watching. I said, "Well, Q, what do you think about this pay raise for Congress?" The old boy bristled up like a maddened chickadee. He spit about a gill into the creek, melting ice for 40 rods and said, "By damn, Allen. That took gall, didn't it? Here they wanted a big fat raise 'cause they couldn't make ends meet. Welcome to the club, Congressman. Find out how the other half lives." Q sat there chewing and he grumbled, "I always thought you got a raise because you did something to earn it. Pshaw, I'm behind the times I guess because Congress sure as hell hasn't done anything to earn it." He glared at me. "You getting all this down, Allen?" I had an empty book of matches out. I nodded, "I'm getting it all, Q. I'll make you famous." Wyoming congressman Richard Cheney and his wi~! recently made a $250 contribution to the Crook Co~j~armer's Scholarship Fund.

CattleWomen to serve beef samples Information for the Beef Cook-Off's will be available and recipes will be distributed when the Crook County CattleWomen hold a public beef "Tasting Roundup" February 14 at Decker's Food Center in Sun- dance from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. commemorating "Heart-y Beef Day." This is a state-wide pro- gram to get the Cook-Off infor- imation to the public and to make contact with prospective contestants.

OF ENGLISH~ AND don't give a damn what the public thinks. They just had a raise here a couple of years ago and now they want another one. It was hypocritical of them the last time, allowing the raise to go through and then voting against it after it took effect." Q shrugged and looked at me. "Attaboy, Allen, give that soapbox a workout." I put a few more scraps in the Crisco can and flames shot high. Q laughed out loud. "Hoe, Boy, watch it, Allen, We.could have another Yellowstone right here and they'd want you to p ay for it out of all the exorbitant profits you're making." I chuckled at that and recklessly threw some old bills into the fire. "Burn, baby, burn," I muttered. "Let the smoke darken the skies and there be night without end." Q regarded me with mouth ajar and eyes ashining. "By gum, Allen," he chortled, "you're something. You sure have a way-with words. You been around them politicians, haven't you?" I laughed, "Cut it out, Q, you're making me blush." The old guy stood up and hauled his blanket around his scrawny frame. He pursed his lips and launched a dark projectile southward and a telephone lineman down in the Rochelle Hills waved his handkerchief in quick surrender. Q muttered, "What I claim, Allen, is that a man ought to be honest and not lose sight of where he came from and where's he been." He stared into the rushing water, as though he-were looking back in time and studying a bronc in a dusty corral with the sun striking the motes of dust, making long dancing rays Finally, Q hunched his shoulders, his train of thought broken. "The hell with it, Allen. They listened to the I~blic this time but once ain't enough. They'll be back, knocking on the door, trying to get into the till again. They never give up." Q went away down the creek, shuffling in the powdery snow. "So long, Allen. See you again real soon. We'll chew the rag again." He mushed away into the gathering gloom of night. I put the fire out by sinking the can in the creek. "So long, pard," I whispered as I rode away into the sunset. WRITING 1.
