Apr 5, 2013 - Lew Diehl, RivertonEditor:
Thanks to the many people who have shown your concern and best wishes during the loss of "Trapper Jake" Korell. His loss was a great blow to us all who worked with and knew him well.
He was into his passion --coyotes --until the last moment. A trapper for 93 years, known for his excellence in preparing his hides for the very top prices, and his passion for passing his knowledge onto young kids --teaching the right way to do it all.
Several people have expressed concern that the Wind River Heritage Center will close with his passing.
The museums are the property of a Wyoming corporation, Wind River Heritage Center Inc. The business of the corporation is controlled by a seven-member board of directors.
Currently Lew Diehl is president and CEO. Doc Holloway is vice president, John Boesch is treasurer.
The board would like to get two or three new members --younger and willing to get involved. Please inquire.
Y'all come and see us.
