PAGE 6 THE SUN]DANCE TIMES DECEMBER 12, 1965 Hulett kids learn to be rx)sifive The second grade classes at the capitols and, yes, even the White can't" from their vocabulary and Hulett elementary school started their year accentuating the posi- tive by becoming aware of the power of words and how their choice of words helps them to realize and use th~ full poten- tial. The children wrote individual lists of their "I Can'ts", things which they felt they were not capable of doing. All of the lists were put in a cardboard box and the box was buried in a symbolic ceremony. The followiug eulogy was read at the site of "I Can'ts" final resting place: "Friends, we gather here today to honor the memory of "I Can't". Wldle he was with us on earth, he, touched the lives of everyone, some more than others. His name, unfortunately, has been spoken in every public building-schools, city halls, state House. We have provided "I Can't" with a final resting place and a headstone that contains his epitaph.. He.is survived by his broth- ere "I Don't", "I Won't", and "I Choose Not to" and his cousin, "I Can". They are not as well known as their famous relative and are certainly not as strong and po- werful yet. Perhaps sOme day, with your help, they will make and even bigger mark on the world. May he rest in peace and may all present here pick up their lives and move forward in his ab- sence." Each class then made a Rest in Peace sign for "I Can't", on which they listed the names of the survivors. The children has discovered that by eliminating the phrase "I by using less limiting words in its place such as "'I choose not to" or "I can" they are taking re- sponsibility for themselves. The second grade teachers, Dottle Roebuck and Toni Neiman, say that they have been amazed at the carryover from this and other positive self-concept activi- ties. The ch~dren are realizing that they are able to do many things which they did not pre- viously believe they were capable of doing. They are also becoming very aware of the responsibility they have for their actions. The children are good at re- minding their teachers about us- ing more positive words in place of "I can't". So both teachers and children are being challenged to be more responsible and to accept new challenges. Cou declared dis mter area provide annual imxiuction loans because of reduced income as a result of this had weather. To qualify for production loss loans, applicants must have suf- fered at least a 30 percent loss of their normal production per acre or normal per animal production. Production losses are calculated! from an aversse of the past five years immediately preceeding the disaster year and may be made for an amount up to 80% of the total actual calculated production loss. Physical loss loan applicants must have suffered substantial losses affecting the ability of their operation to continue on a rea- senably sound basis. All Appli- cants must have sufficient equity to secure the 10an and the opera- tion must show repayment ability. Under the FmHA disaster loan Crook county was one of eight Wyoming counties declared as natural disaster areas November 27 by Secretary of Agriculture John Block. Eligible farmers may qualify for emergency loans due to losses caused by the drought which occurred January 1, 1985 through October 1, 1985. Counties included in the dis- aster area are Campbell, Johnson, Natrona, Niobrara, Platte, Sheridan and Weston. In addition to the eight primary counties, eight contiguous count- ies, were included in the designation, Albany, Big Horn, Carbon, Converse, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie and Washakie. The purpose of this designation is to provide emergency loan assistance to farmers who qualify so they may replace property or This Week at Your Ubrary searched stories, make a valuable and fascinating contribution to Wyoming lore. Another very special Wyoming tale is POLECAT BENCH by Allen G. Richardson. This true story of early life in the Powell country includes Indians and outlaws, rough riding, and sharp dealing, end it starts out with a "I'd seen the angry clouds building up in the northwest, but told myself it was just a spring squall. Now I wasn't so sure. But I'd already decided to go on alone, and I wasn't about to go hack to Charlie at this point. After all, I Was twelve years old end had a job to do. I glanced around.

Incidentally, if you haven't seen the dandy article about Sundan~ artist Spring Pruet by Sundance writer Pat Larsen, there's a copy up on the bul]entin board at Sundance Library. (Rapid City Jnd., I)ec.5; '851 Dee. 9-13, 1985 As we all agree, Wyoming is a state that's worth writing about. Even so, it's perhaps surprising the number of people who have done just that-sat down to write about their experiences, their neighbors, their county, or their ancestors. Often these are small books, with private printings of only a few hundred copies. Sometimes they find a major publisher and you may see them advertised in a national magazine. Just about always, they represent a tremen- dous amount of work and research on the part of their authors, and almoat, as often, you'll find mention in them some- where of someone you know or, knew of, or events you remember. Your county fibraries have many of these books-you might want to look them over next time you come in. A new one at Sundance Library is IN SEARCH OF HOLLYWOOD, WYOMING: 1894--THE SILENT YEARS-- 1929, by William R. Huey of Cheyenne. Huey says in his intro- duction, "From the beginning of the motion picture indm~ry in the late 1890's, Wyoming and its people have been the subject of countless themes and motion pic- ture settings.The film industry early, the true char- acter of the Wyoming Western and produced many a fine actor, actress, and author." This book, concentrating on the silent film era, is the only one on the subject. The many illuetra- tions, along with the well-re- : CHRISTMAS SALE .: OF BOOKS I(XX)'s *~ * one! * assistance program, the amount available to qualified producers cannot exceed the sum of the production or physical loss or q~500,000 whichever is less. H the farmer or rancher cannot get credit from other sources, the FmHA interest rate is five per- cent for the first $100,000 and eight percent for anything over $I00,000. Those who can obtain credit elsewhere may receive a loan for losses at 11.875 percent. The deadline for applying for FmH loans under this disaster designation is July 28, 1986. for further information, farmers located in designated counties are encouraged to contact their local FmHA county office.

Jed took over the conversation at once, of course. It went something, like this. "It's hot-I know, because I've been there. We went to Disney World, I i i I i I remember? It's so hot there, that if you wipe your face with your hand, you get wet on these two fingers end there are two beaches there and we went to both of them! And we saw some dolphins. You could see them real good with binoodars, but I didn't have any, so I had to use my bare eyes. Then we went to an alligator garden. There was one with his eyes closed you know? Well, I thought it was a log that somebody cut down and carved to look like an alligator." We have to be careful about what we call Alec these days. He's gotten very touchy. One afternoon, as Alec drifted out from the nap room, he was greeted by Donald. "Hi Alecy" shouted Donald. Alec's indignant reply was "I'm not Alecy~ I'm Alec-Bo-Balec~" Larry and his pre-school class were making totem poles. When Larry's turn came to explain his drawing, he said "This is my morn, this is my dog. See, he has paws, and this is my dad's motor to the Ram Charger." Tmvis, Jed and Lucas decided to breve the cold after lunch. They put on everything they had and headed out. Ten minutes later, they burst back in, breath- less, with red cheeks. "A little chilly, boys?" asked Sally, to which Travis politely replied, "No thanks, I don't really like chili very muc.h."
