The Cowley Progress

Word came to The Progress this week that unless better patronage is accorded to the movie show that the Cowley Theatre will be closed indefinitely. It is now running at a loss to the owner. As the only place of amusement in Cowley it would be a real calamity to be deprived of this enjoyment. Manager Bischoff has been giving us the best and latest in films and service. Let’s go.

The Lovell Chronicle

Vinegar and kerosene aren’t sold from a keg anymore. The coyote hides, saddles and bridles are gone, but there’s still a demand for bib overalls and kerosene lamps at the Cowley Equitable. Typical of the old general store of pioneer days, the Equitable is probably one of northern Wyoming’s first “department stores” and probably one of few that has been run by the same family since 1907.

Lovell High School juniors (l-r) Mandy Tew, alternate Shannon Fowler, and Mary Harrison were selected from north Big Horn County schools to attend Girls State in 1993. Delegates from Rocky Mountain High School students include Karen Jensen and Desiree Bond. See more in excerpt from 25 years ago.

Two Rocky Mountain High School Future Business Leaders of America students are on their way to the national convention after placing high enough in the state competition recently to qualify them. Jeanna Bair qualified for nationals in accounting and business law by placing second in both events. David Barrett placed second in business calculations to qualify him for nationals. Linda Malliott received a second in computer application but only the top place getter in that event qualifies for nationals.
