Promontory Pointers 3-28-12
The Promontory community gives a hearty “thank you” to Rocky Mountain Power for responding so quickly to our recent power outage. The wind blew so violently a cross-arm snapped and the power lines dangled dangerously. There were several crew trucks on the scene.
Jim and Starr Mitchell got home from church to find the power outage in effect, so they had enough light through their windows to have several rousing games of backgammon. Starr also reports having their garden all ready to receive seeds as the time and weather permits. She and Jim have already planted pea seeds and spinach seeds for early crops.
Laura and Zane Wheatley took their girls, Everly and Georgia, to Hogle Zoo on their way to a cousin’s wedding reception in Payson. Everly is still talking about the elephants and rhinos. Both girls loved the slides at the little playground and didn’t want to leave.
Boyd Udy’s family’s three cutter and chariot teams won their races on Saturday at the World Finals. Sunday the teams didn’t win, but did well enough to keep racing this coming weekend.
Boyd is “loving” this warmer weather and reports he has only four more sections before finishing his new fence.
Kaye Draper did Karaoke and dinner at the Liberty Senior Center Wednesday. On Friday she and Ruth went to dinner. That evening Kaye’s apartment building served green ice cream and green punch to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, then played bingo. On Saturday Kaye attended her ward Relief Society birthday party. After lunch the sisters watched “17 Miracles.” On Sunday she drove herself to West Valley City for dinner and cards at the Bolton residence.
Winnie Richman would like to thank Jim and Starr Mitchell for helping her get the cows and bulls off the road Sunday on their way home from church. “I couldn’t have chased them in my high-heeled shoes,” she says. “Even the truck couldn’t go there.”
On Monday Aaron Richman picked up Clynn’s rolled barley from the co-op and off-loaded it into the grainery. He and April then helped Winnie feed.
On Tuesday Winnie attended Marriah and Skyler Richman’s piano lessons.
On Wednesday Winnie finished her latest painting and friend Carolyn Carter started a new one. Thursday evening Winnie attended the Promontory Precinct Republican Caucus. “It was very interesting and informative,” she says.
On Friday Winnie prepared a meal for sister Pam Apodaca who was returning home from open heart surgery. Then Winnie went to preview some sale bulls before the Ward Bull Sale at Anderson Livestock Auction in Willard.
On Saturday Winnie tried to buy two of the bulls, but was way outbid.
