  • Hospital, first responders shine on tragic day

    David Peck, Lovell Chronicle, July 13|Jul 18, 2024

    The planners and designers of North Big Horn Hospital’s expanded state of the art emergency room surely had in mind a scenario like that which unfolded a week ago when four young men were involved in a horrific incident where fireworks went off inside a moving vehicle on the Fourth of July, severely burning all four. Perhaps some might have wondered if the large, multifaceted space was really needed. Was it overbuilt for a small hospital? Four young men and their families would answer that question emphatically: It was absolutely needed. The n...

  • Transparency at work in School District 2

    David Peck|Mar 28, 2024

    Newspapers from coast to coast last week celebrated Sunshine Week, a time to champion openness and transparency in government in issues from access to public records to open meetings. Ironically, Sunshine Week 2024 happened to coincide with an example of transparency worth celebrating right here in our neck of the woods. Thursday night, Big Horn County School District No. 2 held a public forum during which citizens were able to question three finalists to be the next principal of Lovell Elementary School. We’re not sure most folks realize how r...
