Frankie is not one to boast about the number of tickets he’s written, but sufficient it is that his reputation be known from coast to coast, San Diego to Maine and from Tampa to Washington’s hills. Aye, yes, we will miss you, my friend. You have made our streets much safer, but don’t forget, when you come for a visit you have set the standard, “When in the city limits ya better not exceed what’s posted or yer gonna get toasted.” Have a great and productive retirement, Frankie, and we wish you the very best.

Planned as the Seminary closing social
and held in an open field south of town, the “Mud Bowl” took the cooperation of the Lovell Fire Department, who used their equipment to siphon water out of the ditch for the gooey mess. The same willing workers stood by to hose off the mud bowlers after it was all over.
Pic: What started out as a football game, appropriately dubbed the “Mud Bowl,” ended in a mud-slinging, free-for-all last Friday for graduating LDS seminary students. Here, David Hammond’s expression sums up the pure pleasure of it all.
