Sandy Chapman celebrates her 90th birthday.
Sandy Chapman celebrated her 90th birthday on Oct. 23 at the family ranch in Wilson. Sixty-five good friends and relatives were on hand to honor her, which included her three children, Neil, Scott and Kelly, and four of her grandchildren. There were also nephews from California and New Mexico and her nieces and nephews from Jackson. She was told to make a wish before blowing out her candles. She said, “I wish I wasn’t 90!” Sandy has lived at the ranch for 60 years plus many summers during her childhood. She is known for her biking and colorful outfits. She was overwhelmed and appreciative of everyone who came to her party and to those who called and sent cards and gifts.
Carruths leaving Jackson
Much is changing in the lives of Ann and Vance Carruth. They have sold their home in Jackson and will be relocating to western New York on Lake Erie. They have purchased a home there so they can be near their daughter, Nancy, and her family. It also was getting more difficult for them to handle the wind, snow and taxes living up on the ridge.
They are currently renting back their house and will leave permanently in March. They moved to Jackson in the late 1970s and were both hired by the Teton County School District. They have a long history of volunteerism in our community. We thank them for the positive influence that they have had on many children in our community. They will be sorely missed.
A good winter read
Between 1955 and 1987 the United States Coast Guard Cutter Glacier was the largest and most powerful icebreaker in the free world. Consequently, it was often given the most difficult and dangerous Antarctic missions.
“Wind, Fire, and Ice,” by Robert M. Bunes, is the dramatic first-person account of its most legendary voyage. In 1970 the author was the chief medical officer on the Glacier when it became trapped deep in the Weddell Sea, pressured by 100 miles of wind-blown ice pack. It was beset within 70 miles of where Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ship, the Endurance, was imprisoned in 1915. His stout wooden ship succumbed to the crushing pressure of the infamous Weddell Sea pack ice and sank, leading to an unbelievable two-year saga of hardship, heroism and survival. The sailors aboard the Glacier feared they would suffer Shackleton’s fate or one even worse.
Freakishly good luck eventually saved the ship from destruction, but the story is told as the author experienced it. The crew had to face a three-hour inferno and eight-story-high waves that drove the ship to the brink of disaster.
“Wind, Fire, and Ice” is the story of a physician fresh out of an internship who naively assumes he is going to have an easy assignment and see numerous exotic ports. Instead he experiences adventures and adversities beyond his imagination as well as jarring conflicts with an obsessed captain.
Longtime Jackson resident Joe Burke was in the Coast Guard from 1969 to 1971 and served on the Glacier alongside the author for six months. Joe kept a journal during his tenure and is quoted many times in this terrific story.
Lindsey is heading out
Gloria Lindsey, the owner and stylist at Images Salon, is moving to Oklahoma. She has been in the same location at South Highway 89 for 14 years. In all of that time she has raised her prices only one time. Her clients and friends are sorry to see her go but wish her the best in her new endeavors.
Veterans Day activities
On Wednesday, Nov. 10, lunch can be picked up at the Senior Center of Jackson Hole from 12 to 1 p.m. Lunch for veterans, their spouses and seniors age 60 and older are compliments of the Bank of Jackson Hole. Grilled flank steak with side dishes is on the menu. Reservations must be made by 3 p.m. Nov. 9. Call 733-7300.
The American Legion Post will be conducting a Veterans Day observance on Town Square on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. That is the time that the shooting stopped and World War I ended. The Jackson Hole High School choir will be there singing the hymns of all the branches of service about 10:40 a.m.
There will be a group of runners from the Jackson Police Department who will begin their 11-mile run to collect food for the Jackson Food Cupboard. The public is encouraged to bring food items to donate.
