Passenger service on train No. 30 was delayed Tuesday when the southbound train was detained in the Lovell yards because of a freight derailment Monday night at Kane. Three cars of a Burlington freight train jumped the tracks and overturned, injuring a brakeman, W.H. Douglas, of Greybull, it was reported. Officials of the line said Douglas was riding in the caboose and was knocked unconscious when the car overturned, but it was not believed he was injured seriously. Another derailed car was loaded with automobiles, and the third was an ore car.

The coyote, Gip, raised from infancy by the Everett McConahay family, proved last Friday what the McConahays knew all along, “You can’t trust ‘em.” In spite of a seemingly friendly attitude which lulled younger family members into thinking Gip could be treated like a dog, she turned on 4-year-old Cheryl Rasmussen and inflicted lacerations about the ear, neck and scalp which required several stitches, Mrs. McConahay said. Cheryl is the McConahay’s granddaughter.

Lots of joyful splashing can be heard at the Lovell pool most mornings as the Lovell Recreation District conducts swimming lessons for kids eager to cool off and learn something at the same time.
