In an effort to meet rising costs of publishing newspapers, we announce this week that beginning with our next issue, Jan. 6, 1949, The Cowley Progress will be consolidated with The Lovell Chronicle. It is no longer possible to provide the Cowley community a newspaper with continued cost increases in all our operations.
The Chronicle will continue to carry all the news of the Cowley community, and we feel that the people residing there will be better served under the consolidation and our advertisers will enjoy an increased circulation at no extra cost.

Every community has its unsung heroes, certain individuals who, by their actions – usually behind the scenes – make the community a better place in which to live. One such person in north Big Horn County is coach and teacher Gerry Christiansen. Affectionately known as Coach C, Christiansen penned more than 300 letters at Christmas this year, once again writing at the top of paper that bears a Christmas story, and he annually writes more than 350 end-of-the-school-year notes to his students and to teachers.

The North Big Horn County Museum and Historical Center received the go-ahead from the Town of Lovell to establish a mini-museum in the Lovell Area Chamber of Commerce Building on Main Street in Lovell during the December 10 council meeting at town hall.
Museum board members Rich Fink and Karen Spragg attended the November 12 council meeting, along with chamber board president-elect Craig Trumbull to request a sublease with the town to use part of the chamber building to display historical items until the museum can obtain its own building.
At the December 10 council meeting, a  month-to-month sublease with Lovell-Kane Area Museum Inc., with an end date of Nov. 30, 2014, was presented, and the council voted to approve the lease.
