I was born in Wyoming, so I’m not a native Idahoan, but I’ve been in Idaho mostly since 1935. I went to High School in four different states including Idaho.

I spent a couple of Years in Alaska. I was with an engineering outfit in Alaska which is now an Air Force base. I was supposed to go back to school; I did for a year, that’s where I met my wife.

I got independent and said heck with it, that’s why I’m here.
I had two Farm Bureau people meet in that feed lot down there one morning when I was doing some welding and it looked like it might be a good deal so I’ve been a member every since. I think that was probably in the early 70’s, something like that I don’t remember for sure.

Grass roots:
“It’s very important; I think we don’t want to get away from it.
I’ve introduced a number of things that went a long way some that went flat others that didn’t. I guess wolves are one thing, Kind of a disappointment but it got to where it is now, though. I think Farm Bureau could have done different and better than they did. I’m not here to bad mouth it, but I think we could have done better. I think we can still do better. We are afraid of political correctness to challenge it. The enviros don’t like us anyway, why worry. We should look at the middle of the crowd, the ones you can sway, I don’t know if we are doing the best job. We’re afraid to call a spade a spade because it’s going to offend somebody. We had a fellow who didn’t like wolves, he went before the legislature, and they said he was a little too much, he didn’t go over well at the legislature, yea that’s true, and you can get too far ahead.

To get any action out of any person or group you have polarize things, and I think that’s something Farm Bureau should think about is: polarization. That way you can get action out of a person or a group.

Is Farm Bureau needed?
Oh definitely it is…the greenies hate us the tree huggers and all that.

Who in Farm Bureau stands out in your mind?
Dave Bivens, Dr. Greg Nelson and yes we got another one down there, Judy Boyle, great people.

“I guess its High Country, Wyoming is 6-7-thousand feet, the elevation here is 35-hundred feet. The upper end of the place is 45 hundred feet or better, it’s kind of a narrow strip, it’s in three different drainages, plus drainage here to the east. Consequently we get every varmint in the world that comes by, we’re talking bear, wolf cougar and lots and lots of coyotes.

They have wolves now and consequentially trappers cannot do much because you might kill a wolf. Consequentially there has been very little coyote control the last few years and coyotes are swarming around here.

My folks aways supposed Id go to engineering school, I thought I would go look and see what the other side of the hill looked like and go back and go to school. I did, I went to work for an engineering outfit 26 miles outside of Fairbanks. I worked there two years for an engineering company, and Korea was starting to warm up, you had to register for the draft. I was thinking that maybe I should go back to the states, so my friend and I went back. I graduated from Longmont, we went back to join the Guard there so we could go to college and get by and when I started the school back in ’48, there were five freshman girls in the class, and Betty was one of them.

After 50 years of marriage, it occurred to me, the boys always figured the girls, the BA’s anyway went to school to find a husband.After 50 years of marriage, it occurred to me that I went to school to find a wife…I thought if she is so damned smart, why did she marry the likes of you. But anyway my wife is tired of hearing that.

It was at the University of Colorado, school of engineering, there were only about 2-thousand in the school of engineering, there were lots of BA but not many engineers, that’s why five girls in a school of two thousand boys, they stood out.

Denver, Longmont & NorthWestern RR

Denver, Longmont & NorthWestern RR

The former Denver and Rio Grande locomotive #6 is seen almost fully loaded south of Longmont and north of Canfield. The car lettered for the DL&NW is a combine, half baggage and half passenger car. It is easy to see that the passengers were ready to re-embark after pushing the train up the hill! The #6 had all the tractive effort of a gerbil in a squirrel cage. Ha!

Longmont & Erie Railroad
Jan 3, 1878 - Incorporated to the Rob Roy Bank and Star mines.
March 12, 1881 - The company name was changed to Denver, Longmont & Northwestern Railroad.
August 6, 1881 - The first locomotive was named after John H. Wells, a prominent Longmonter and promoter, the general manager. The locomotive was #6 on loan from the Denver and Rio Grande.
Nov 24,1881 - The route of ten miles was completed around Empson Hill to Mitchell mine south of Canfield.

Denver Utah & Pacific
Dec 1, 1880 - David Moffat and Associates of Denver chartered the new route as his first attempt to build west through the mountains and to the Pacific. He wanted to build to Boulder then climb the Rockies and through a tunnel actually started at Yankee Doodle Lake below Rollins Pass. His Denver, Northwestern & Pacific, later the Denver & Salt Lake RR, eventually followed this general route. Rollin’s mail line west was never to be built on the Denver, Utah & Pacific.
Nov 24,1881 - This line branched from the proposed the Pacific mainline at Halleck Junction, 9.5 miles northwest of Denver to Canfield’s coalfields 13.5 miles. There it connected with DL&NW’s line.
1884 - The Denver, Utah and Pacific Railroad laid narrow gauge trackage into Lyons to access the quarry sandstone for Eastern markets in Chicago and New York for their brownstone houses. Sandstone rubble was used for railroad ballast, slabs for sidewalks, curbs and gutters. Many of the beautiful buildings that grace our Colorado University Campus at Boulder are built with Lyons sandstone, as well as many other buildings elsewhere.
