From The Mayor This is an exciting time of year in our community. With the cold weather on the way out, we are able to really get “Festival City” in full swing. The actors and staff from the Shakespeare Festival have arrived for another great season. This year’s USF season will be even more exciting with construction beginning on the new Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Performing Arts and the Festival’s new Shakespeare Theatre, which is expected to be open for the Festival’s 2016 season. (The Festival will continue its current programming of eight shows and a free nightly Greenshow, as well as seminars, orientations, and backstage tours during the construction.) For more information check out their website www.bard.org. Over the next few months there will be a number of fun activities and events throughout our City.

From The Editor The Price of Freedom It was 1985. Reagan was president, Nintendo was launched, and Madonna was taking pop culture by storm. I was seven years old, and summer break was almost here. It was time for the end of year recital. I was dressed in my Sunday best, and singing my little heart out on the three tiered stage of the auditorium. I knew I was a citizen of the United States of America. I recited the Pledge of Allegiance by heart each day with my class, and got to take my turn putting up the American flag. But until that recital, I had never FELT patriotism. As I stood there singing the newly released song “Proud to be an American” at the top of my lungs for the audience, I felt a distinct swelling in my chest. As the flag was raised high, tears came to my eyes as I mouthed the words, “I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me,” too choked up to add voice to them. In that moment I could see those brave men, on the battlefield, defending my freedom. It was personal that day. It was more than words on the pages of a history book, more than the special effects in Hollywood films, more than a 4th of July sparkler. It was real. Fast forward almost thirty years to today. I am married to a man who served in the Army for six years. We have two little boys of our own, but I still get choked up when I hear that song. I still see those men, those brave warriors of freedom, fighting for our right. Memorial Day and Independence Day are great reasons to get together and barbecue with loved ones, but let us not forget the reason we are celebrating. We are celebrating freedom. We are celebrating the lives of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and honoring them for their service. We are celebrating the beauty that surrounds us in this most unique and beautiful area that we are lucky to call home in Cedar City, Utah. There ain’t no doubt, I love this land. God bless the U.S.A.

P e t r o g ly p h s By Cedar City Magazine Staff So close yet so far away. Just a few miles off the interstate mainstream there is a place where you can step back in time. Back to a time when people walked or rode their horses through this area that we call Color Country, breathing the cool crisp air of a spring morning and experiencing this beautiful area in a way that can not be done while traveling northbound along I-15 at 80 mph. This place, just thirty minutes outside of Cedar City, is on the National Register of Historic Places, yet many of us have never been there. In fact, most people like me have traveled I-15 and State Highway 130 most of my life and didn’t even know it existed. So if you have a free afternoon, and would like to step off the roller coaster we call life, take a short trip north to the Parowan Gap. The Parowan Gap has two features of distinction, one natural, one man-made. The gap is a nationally recognized extravaganza of petroglyphs--a superb “gallery” of Native American rock art. You can witness what is at least a 1,000 year accumulation of art work pecked into the rock. Geometric designs, images of lizards, snakes, mountain sheep, bear claws and human figures adorn the smooth canyon walls of the pass. Secondly, the pass near Parowan is a classic example of a wind gap, an unusual geological landform marking where an ancient river has cut a 600-foot-deep notch through the Red Hills. Several centuries ago Native Americans traveling through the area stopped and pecked designs onto the smooth faces of large boulders found on the east side of the gap. Over the years many of the boulders have been covered with these chiseled figures known as petroglyphs. What these designs mean is still unknown. Archaeologists debate that they represent concepts, ideas or actual happenings. Perhaps they were part of a religious activity or hunting ritual. The local Native Americans consider them to be an important part of their cultural history, relating stories of their ancestors. Current researchers believe that the semi-nomadic ancestors of the present day Southern Paiute also created some of these figures. Several species of wildlife make their home in the Gap’s cliffs, canyons, broad plains and forested areas. Several endangered animals make their home there including the sage grouse, pygmy rabbit and the Utah prairie dog. The Gap area also has a high concentration of
hawks, eagles, falcons and owls, so keep your eyes to the sky and the cliff outcroppings. Please tread lightly, causing as little disturbance as possible. Rock art should be photographed or sketched but not touched in any way. Fingers and palms leave oils that speed deterioration. Chalking the figures will eliminate the chance to use new dating techniques in the future. Directions: From Cedar City: Go north on Main Street (or take Interstate 15 Exit 62) to UT 130. Continue north 13.5 miles, then turn east (right) 2.5 miles on a good gravel road to Parowan Gap.

Why Utah fishing is more accessible than you might think
By Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
Look around. The weather is warm, the snow in the mountains is melting and local ponds have been stocked with fish. Now is the time to start off the summer right with a relaxing, fun family adventure. The truth is, more than 50 percent of Utahns say they want to go fishing this year, according to a Division of Wildlife Resources survey completed in February 2014. And according to the same survey, the top reasons Utahns like to fish are: 1) To enjoy nature and be outdoors. 2) To spend time with family and friends. 3) To relax and disconnect from technology and the busyness of life. Surprisingly, only 25 percent of Utah residents actually buy a fishing license and go fishing each year. The DWR manages more than 50 community fisheries throughout Utah, including new ponds opening this year in Iron and Wasatch counties. Most Utahns have many fishing options within a 30-minute drive of their home. Before planning a fishing trip with his kids, always check the fishing portion of the DWR’s website. “The site has fishing reports for waters across Utah,” he says. “The Utah fishing guidebook is also available, so you’ll know what the fish limits and the rules are.” Here are three ways to connect with your family through fishing:
1. Find a fishing spot near you on FishUtah.org A fishing outing does not need to take an entire weekend or even an entire day. Most Utahns live within an hour’s drive of numerous fishing options. To help you locate nearby fishing getaways, the DWR created FishUtah.org, a microsite with an easy-to-use locator tool. Just enter your address and zip code to find the closest ponds, rivers and lakes. 2. Kids under 12 fish for free in Utah Children under 12 years of age do not need a fishing license to fish in Utah. They can also take a full limit of fish. The only exceptions are kids who want to fish with a second pole or a setline, in which case a fishing license and a second-pole or setline permit is required. Starting July 1, however, anyone with a fishing license in Utah can fish with two fishing poles. A second-pole permit will no longer be required. 3. Pick up a Utah Fishing Guidebook In addition to explaining Utah fishing rules and regulations, the guidebook offers helpful information about season dates, water bodies and Utah’s native fish. The guidebook also covers fun programs like fishing contests and Free Fishing Day. Guidebooks are available online. You can also get a printed copy at DWR offices and from fishing license agent locations.

Outdoor Living Left: Jamis Citizen entry level fitness bike. Cost: $380. Right: Jamis Ventra Sport available in Men’s and Women’s specific models. Cost: $725.
HELMET: A must! 80% of serious bike injuries involve the head. Your odds of avoiding brain trauma are good if you wear a helmet every time. Cheap is OK. I’ve cracked a few helmets now..... pretty badly. Without them, head meets pavement at 18-20 mph... I’ve met quite a few people by now that have been hurt much worse, and of course the many ghost bikes I’ve seen are a constant reminder.
Intro to Cycling By Cedar City Magazine Staff When getting started in the the sport of cycling, the cost may get a bit over whelming so start with the basics: If you are a minimalist, you can get by with less, but please make sure you have a helmet. BIKE: Old, new, green, red, pink, blue, it is a simple machine with few moving parts. Somewhere between free, $10, and $100 will get you on the road. The Deseret Industries has a great selection of used bicycles that need little to no work to get you on the road. A GOOD new bike from High Knees Cycling will start about $250-700, the differences from a $59 Wal-Mart bike are many: it will last longer, work better, need adjustments less frequently, and be more fun to ride... but for now, just get started with what you can afford. There are only a few things you need to take care of on any bike: keep air in the tires, a little oil on the chain, and adjust brakes and seat so it fits you right and everything moves without rubbing (you AND the bike). If you can’t get anyone to help you and you’re not mechanical, High Knees Cycling has a full service staff willing and ready to get you riding. High Knees Cycling is owned and operated by people that love bikes and love to talk bikes; they will never try to sell you anything you don’t need. They will understand your situation and give you good advice. Don’t be afraid to say you don’t understand, they will explain. If you want to ride your old bike at the lowest cost possible, let them know, and they’ll treat you fair. When you get more serious and start thinking about a new bike, they will know where you’ve come from and steer you right.
START RIDING: Start small, and have a destination! The thing I’ve found with beginners is, if you have fun, you’ll want do it more. In the beginning, one to two miles (five to ten minutes) each way is plenty. Try riding to the grocery store or a little errand to give your ride purpose. If it’s a “fitness ride”, start out with five, ten, or fifteen minutes, and build up a minute or two the next time. Your body is amazing--you will advance quickly, and in about a month you will be stronger and faster than you started just by getting your muscles fit. Group rides and clubs are good ways to get started too, they have all levels of riders so you can get with a group going just your speed. The most common mistake people make is over-doing it. I hear stories all the time... “Man am I sore!... I was having so much fun I kept going but didn’t realize I’d have to double the distance to get back home.” So, have fun, take short routes with detours or stop offs, take photos of your adventures, and as you gain experience and fitness you will naturally go further with less effort.

Milt’s Stage Stop: The Tradition Continues
By Randy Lovell As Daniel Aiken steps into the position of manager of the restaurant it is evident that Milt’s is a source of both personal and family pride for him. He has worked hard and learned from the best, and he has earned the chance to lead Milt’s into the future. To those who may be new to the area, Milt’s and has been the best steak house in Southern Utah for over fifty years. Many have come and gone during this time but only Milt’s has withstood the test and continues to see its reputation for incredible service and quality food grow each day. Milt’s truly has EARNED its reputation. The name comes from Milt Jolley, a local boy born in Paragonah in 1919, who, after serving two tours in the armed forces, returned to his Southern Utah roots to leave his mark. He organized the Southern Utah Advertising Association and was passionate about promoting the State of Utah, especially Southern Utah and Cedar City. While working for the Utah Travel Council, he assisted in the creation of the Painted Hills Golf Course, Brian Head Resort, and the first Park City Ski Resort. He also started a few businesses in Cedar City, including, Milt’s Taxi Service, Milt’s Bowling, and Milt’s Circus Lounge but it was his opening of a restaurant in 1954 with some of his G I buddies, Pat Fenton, Jimmy Hoyle, and Geoger Burch, that helped put quality cuisine on the menu in Cedar City, and Milt’s on the map. Milt’s has continued to this day to serve the best steak and seafood in Southern Utah! Milt ran it for a few years until Walt Wolfinger took it over in 1956. The reputation for great food was growing and has continued to grow since. In fact they are still using many of Walt’s original recipes and techniques that made Milt’s famous. The key to most of his recipes were
to keep things simple and use fresh ingredients. With the restaurant business coming full circle – now serving meals that are simple, full of fresh ingredients, and healthy – it is nice to know that Milt’s hasn’t had to change a thing. Their commitment to buying only the best beef, seafood, and produce has made it easy for them to continue providing their guests with a great meal. In 1975 a young man named Rusty Aiken was hired as a dishwasher at Milt’s. He fell in love with the business and within a year he was managing the restaurant. Throughout the late 1970’s and early 1980’s he, along with some dedicated college classmates, built Milt’s into what it is today. He and his wife, Kim, bought the restaurant from the management company in 1983, and later bought the building from Milt and his partners in 2000. In the late 1980’s Rusty bought a small forty acre farm in Cedar Valley with the hope that it would help him raise his kids. It did just that. Daniel says the “hard work ethic he has, was learned on the farm.” Just like the restaurant, the farm has become a family affair. They began raising Registered Black Angus Cattle in 1990 and take great pride in the quality of beef they raise. Daniel says “We are just as proud of the cattle we raise as we are of the steaks we serve.” As I ask Daniel about his first memory of the restaurant and how old he was when he started to work, my mind went back to a simpler time in my own life. A time that we both grew up in, an era where you could start working at a young age. Although I started to work in the grocery store and he started in a restaurant our experiences were similar. I started at the end of my seventh grade year and Daniel began to fill in as a dishwasher around age ten. We both learned about the importance of hard work and responsibility, but beyond that we learned that you can have a lot of fun at work. He started his apprenticeship at Milt’s early, standing atop a milk crate to reach the double sink where he peeling shrimp or washed potatoes, while his Dad put on prime rib, or met with his food salesmen. He has been along side his father and learned every step of the way. He has always enjoyed listening and learning from current and past employees. From Milt’s first dishwasher Jessie Rob, to past managers like Betty Rember, Milts roots run deep and their branches have served the community well. A lot of my favorite lectures have been given by past server, Patty (Allen) Petters, and my mom and dad. As we discussed the business, it became evident that one of the main reasons for their longevity and success is their people. You can read all the business books you want and most of them will tell you the same thing: success comes when you can find and keep good people. Rusty, Kim and now Daniel have created a culture that makes working at Milt’s a pleasure. This is showcased by the fact that many of their employees have stayed with them for a long time. Scott started the year before Daniel was born and has been with them ever since. Becky and Marci started before he was born, they each left for a while then came running back. Robyn has been with them for seventeen years. In 2000 Milt’s went through a major remodel. The old kitchen was completely demolished and replaced with a new one for the first time since Milt’s opened some 50+ years ago (when the seating areas and the kitchen were on the same level), and another dinning room
was added. Along with the remodel there were a few subtle changes to the menu, starting with baking their own bread and adding a few new menu items like ahi tuna, orange roughy, and pork tenderloin to complement the existing famous salad bar, prime rib, steaks, jumbo shrimp, Alaskan king crab and Australian rock lobster. I asked Daniel what he sees in the future for Milt’s and he says, “Milt’s staying on the same track for years to come. The loyalty of our customers run generations deep, they like Milt’s the way it is. As time goes on I’m confident that we will make subtle adjustments to our menu to cater to the ever changing market, but we will hold true to the roots that made Milt’s what it is today.” As I sat and watched him visit with a customer, you could tell that he feels right at home in his new position and loves what he does. As he takes yet another compliment from a satisfied customer he humbly responds, “I’m glad that you like it.” He went on to say “We have many regulars that come to Milts, some come in twice a month, others twice a year. But many of them we know on a deeper level than just a customer, and take great pride in maintaining our reputation of being a nice warm cabin for people to come home to.” My family and I are proud to be included in the group that Milt’s calls “regulars.” Milt’s Stage Stop is in good hands, and the tradition that we simply know as “Milt’s” will continue for many years to come.

By SUU Alumni Relations Staff
Jared Barnes Comes Home
The stories of the interrelation of Cedar City and Southern Utah University are legion, and Cedar Ridge Golf Course director and pro Jared Barnes presents but one example of the symbiosis. Jared moved to town in 1984 when his father, Don, joined the teacher education faculty of the University. His mother, Ann, also served on the teacher ed faculty a few years later. Enjoying life in Cedar City, Jared took a special interest in golf, and became one of Cedar Ridge Pro John Evans’ junior golfers at a young age, then was coached by Evans at Cedar High before joining the Thunderbird golf team in 1989. Following an LDS mission to Lisbon, Portugal, Jared returned to SUU and found Evans had become the Thunderbird coach. The well-respected pro was a tremendous influence on Jared, and it might not have then surprised either that the youngster would one day replace the retired mentor. That transition occurred in October, after Jared had put in his time at several courses in northern Utah. After earning his BA in accounting in 1996, Jared set off on a number of adventures in golf and in life, and his most recent stint as a head golf pro was at Glen Eagle Gold Course in Syracuse, Utah. Along the way, he also served as president of the Utah Section of the PGA. “We’re thrilled to be back in Cedar City and we know the future is bright here,” Jared says of his family, consisting of wife Julie, and daughters Clara, Lily and Anna, as well as son Luke. Julie is the daughter of former SUU business professor Jerry Horgesheimer, who passed away in 2000. Jared also feels a great sense of optimism about Cedar Ridge and is proud to build upon the legacy of Evans, who directed the course for 31 years, and designed the back nine, which was added in the ’80s. The course began as a nine-hole facility in 1962. “We’ve just remodeled the Clubhouse, giving it a great, fresh look, and our persistent prairie dog problem will soon be solved. It’s a great course, and we want people to get away from the everyday problems of life and enjoy themselves here. It’s our job to provide an atmosphere for that and to make everyone feel welcome, because they certainly are. We’re excited to build on the great work that John did over the years,” said Jared. He is also excited about the relationship with SUU men’s and women’s golf teams and their coach Richard Church, who practice and host NCAA play at Cedar Ridge. “The student athletes bring a lot of great spirit to the course, and our regular customers are quite interested in their results and progress. They’ve become Thunderbird fans,” he said. He looks back on his own experiences at SUU with pride and affection, and said that some of his best friends in life were golf teammates. “In fact,” he said, “our group gets together every year to play, and John joins us as well.” So, everywhere he turns, SUU alumnus Jared Barnes is pleasantly faced with his Thunderbird past. He also looks to its bright future. “The growth of the campus is amazing, and what’s to come is equally exciting,” he said, “I’m proud to be a Thunderbird.” The SUU Alumni Association is a vital part of the University and welcomes all to keep in touch and abreast of campus activities through its website at suu.edu/alumni.
2 Characteristics of
Legendary Leaders By Jeff Sherman Easily recognized yet rarely found are the legendary leaders, the ones who stand out. Legendary leaders create a cause and move people. They challenge the status quo and deliver, comfortably at odds with skeptics. They do not conform nor revolt. They simply lead. Consider two characteristics everpresent in those we define as legendary. Legendary leaders accept accountability for their mistakes. The legendary create no excuses. They do not blame. Instead, they innately understand that blame and success share nothing and they therefore seek only solutions going forward. Legendary leaders view mistakes as stepping stones to the inevitable success. They foster a culture where creativity is not leashed to reward or failure, rather, one where creativity is viewed more as rushing waters overflowing, rumbling, splashing recklessly over obstacles in the path. Leaders focus on capturing the power of the creativity, not stifling it or diverting it into the pungent pond of micromanagement. Leaders savor things fresh.
About the Author
Legendary leaders provide recognition rather than seek it. Modest in their approach, legendary leaders see strength in numbers and actively honor the work of the team. They do not stand at the forefront waving a banner as accolades are given out. Instead, legendary leaders watch for subtle signs of excellence in others, then cultivate that excellence into a mighty force. People are generally multitalented, proficient in favored areas, and willing to grow. Legendary leaders find the untapped capabilities in those they lead and begin to build strength therein. In recent years, the focus on return on investment (ROI) has driven scrupulous attention to bottom line numbers and statistics. Important as those numbers are, would-be leaders who champion only short term ROI courses of action will eventually see the cost show up in their business culture fragility. To be frank, successful leaders must focus not only on the return on investment, they must also maintain resiliency in terms of return on individuality. I see the need to infuse quality lifepractices and humanity back into business ethics. We are ready to thrive in that direction.
Believing that “Beyond
Today’s leaders mediocrity dreams are found,” Jeffrey T. Sherman, Principal define account of ShermanSpeaks LLC is a ability and foster public speaker and consultant culture. They utilizing a relationshipbuilding blueprint to drive create new syner fledging companies and gistic outcomes individuals to the next and redefine level: Defining 2.0™. employee contri www.ShermanSpeaks.com bution. Too often, leadership searches select individuals with high bottom-line numbers. Indeed, leaders largely impact the bottom line, but do so indirectly. The greatest leaders impact those who impact the bottom line. Therein is the difference. When provided true leadership, employees gain confidence in themselves and their fellow workers. They believe that they can accomplish the extraordinary. And typically they do. Resolve to build your company from the inside out. Own your mistakes and seek solutions. Give recognition to those who deserve it. Capture all integral business and community aspects of growing brand awareness. A brand is much more than a company logo; much more than an ROI. It is the people who daily make things happen.

MILT’s STage stop restaurant By Randy Lovell WOW... It was like coming home for the Holidays, to a comfortable place full of memories and friends, as my wife, daughter and I sat down to enjoy a meal at Milt’s last week. It’s been awhile since we had been to Cedar City’s Original Steakhouse as we have been living out of the area, and as expected, when you are away from something for a period of time, our expectations were high. As we walked through the door, it was obvious that not much had changed, the rustic feel of a mountain cabin, the smiles on the faces of everyone we met and the peaceful feelings that we felt inside as we remembered times spent here with friends and family, some of whom are no longer with us. We were home, and as we were about to find out, if anything, Milt’s had gotten better with time. And just as Milt’s had done for thousands of guests before us, our expectations were met head on and surpassed! Located just 5 miles up Cedar Canyon Highway 14, Milt’s Stage Stop Restaurant is the perfect distance away from the hustle and bustle of life. The short drive gives you just the right amount of time to relax and forget the days worries. In 1956, Walt Wolfinger took over the restaurant. He had served his cooking apprenticeship in one of Switzerland’s finest hotels, spent time crossing Europe discovering culinary treats, tested and refined his talents in Las Vegas then settled in Cedar City and was ready to share his expertise with his new hometown. Milt’s quickly gained a reputation for amazing food and excellent service, a reputation that has continued to grow for over 50 years. In fact they are still using many of Walt’s original recipes and techniques today. Rusty and Kim Aiken have owned the restaurant since 1983, with their son Daniel now the manager. He is joined by cooks, Rob Boren and Jim McDowell, and an incredible staff including our waitress, Becky, one of many longtime employees. The Staff takes great pride in their work and make providing their guests with some of the best food in southern Utah seem almost effortless. We started by sharing the sautéed mushrooms and deep fried zucchini appetizer combo. The mushrooms sautéed in wine, butter and garlic were excellent and the zucchini was cut thin, lightly breaded and served with a warm cheese sauce that made the dish scrumptious. A trip to the salad bar came next. Not a massive cafeteria style salad bar but one that was chock full of fresh garden greens, vegetables, and comfort foods like carrot sticks, and creamed cucumbers (my favorite). It was as if they had just stepped out back and harvested the night’s greens from their own garden. Knowing that the portions are very generous and wanting to save room for dessert, deciding on the main course became extremely difficult. Everyone knows Milt’s serves great steaks , but they also have an extensive offering of fresh seafood, a breast of chicken teriyaki and pork tenderloin. 14 www.cedarcitymag.com
My daughter chose the orange roughy, a succulent white fish that was pan fried to perfection and topped with a rich creamy apricot sauce, accompanied by a delectable baked sweet potato dusted with cinnamon. Even for a steak lover like me, this entree was incredible and I will have to think twice when I order next time. I went with the Shrimp N’ Filet combination with buffalo chips; a 7oz perfectly cooked filet seasoned with cracked pepper & salt and topped with sliced mushrooms sautéed in butter and garlic and three jumbo shrimp. The shrimp was very lightly battered and then deep fried. The light flaky batter was a perfect addition to the star of the show, the shrimp was so fresh it actually “popped” as you bit into it. All of this was accompanied by Milt’s signature buffalo chips, a baked potato sliced thick, deep fried and sprinkled with a house seasoning. Need I say more? My wife thoroughly enjoyed a tender succulent breast of chicken which had been marinated in a teriyaki sauce, cooked on the broiler and served with pineapple and sautéed mushrooms on a bed of rice. And.. as has happened before, we had no room for dessert. Knowing that we were missing an incredible treat, we vowed to come back soon. Yes, we would be back soon, because we had come home.

Celebrating Parenthood By Chad D. Olson, LMFT There are two holidays coming up that celebrate parenthood and give us an opportunity for reflection: May 11th is Mother’s Day and June 15th is Father’s Day. As a marriage and family therapist, I have the opportunity on a regular basis to hear the experiences of my clients as they strive to reach their potential. A common intervention that is used in couple or family counseling is called a genogram. It is a pictorial means of diagraming family relationships looking for patterns throughout the generations. From the many genograms I have helped people complete, there is one very strong commonality: parents matter! The influence of a parent is far reaching and can be for better or for worse. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day naturally facilitates an opportunity to reflect as we ponder our memories and experiences with our mother and father. For some, this will be a time of joyous reflection as they express gratitude for the sacrifice and generosity of wonderful parents. For others, it may be a time to try and find forgiveness in their hearts for the difficulties they experienced growing up. And for others, it may be a time of sorrow because of premature separation or unrealized expectations. Whatever our situation may be, it is a time to realize the long lasting effects of relationships. Abraham Lincoln said, “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” The love of a mother is powerful, selfless and unconditional. On a personal note, that unconditional love was expressed by my mother on the day I was born. As the nurses weighed me, they read the scale: 11 lbs. 1 oz. Yes, that is written correctly: 11 pounds! How grateful I am for my angel mother! The example set by mothers can be long lasting. A team of researchers at BYU have studied and written about a concept known as the intergenerational transmission of values. The idea is to
discover how much of what parents or grandparents teach through word and/or example is incorporated into the lives of About the Author their children/grandchildren. Although With a Masters Degree there is not a perfect correlation, there from BYU, Chad Olson is a licensed Marriage & Family is a strong link between the beliefs and Therapist who specializes in behaviors across generations. Once helping couples and families again the conclusion seems obvious – reach their full potential. parents matter! I believe that Mother’s Day and Father’s Day also provide an opportunity to reflect upon our own roles as a mother or a father, a grandmother or a grandfather. Father’s day is celebrated in various ways in different cultures; however, a common way to honor fathers is to give them gifts in one form or another. As I have been pondering the celebration of Father’s Day, I have chosen to make this Father’s Day unique. I am going to do the gift giving. While I appreciate the thoughtful gifts and notes that my family gives me, I want to spend this Father’s day making sure each of my children knows how much their dad loves them. My four children each have unique interests and needs, so I am going to thoughtfully consider how I can reach out to each one of them and be the dad I believe they need in their lives. It is truly better to give then receive. What would be the effect if each parent decided to respond a little softer to their children or express a bit more patience or even dedicate some more time to being involved in their children’s lives? I believe that it is through small things done consistently over long periods of time that the biggest differences are made in the lives of our children. There are few things as rewarding as being involved in a child’s life and helping them feel loved, safe and secure! It is worth every “sacrifice” we may have to make to achieve that goal.

T r i but e By Terrin Parker
My father turned sixty this past year. Often dignified, sometimes silly, and always affable, my dad has been a light in my life, all my life. From the time I was small enough to climb up his long legs and flip around as he held my hands, to the time he gave my hand to another, to the time he held my babies in his hands, he has enriched my life and filled its shelves with volumes of love and memories: “Daddy-daughter dates” and fancy food. Subway sandwiches and Sandies for lunch after a long morning in the saddle herding cows. Oatmeal cookie dough on Sundays. Pack trips up Pine Valley mountain. Jumping waves at Newport Beach. Camping and Dutch-oven dinners. Weekly “interviews” to discuss life, sans judgement. My dad is and has always been a source of comfort and strength to me. I once attended one of the “Cowboy Poetry Gatherings” he often goes to, and since I know he enjoys them I decided to attempt to write a cowboy poem of my own about him for his 60th birthday. It was a bit of a challenge to compose verse in western slang, but I did my best.

Dr. Scott Newbold on Kids and Summer Safety By Kristy Ann Pike As families look forward to vacations, camping, and lazy days by the pool, pediatrician Dr. Scott Newbold of Intermountain Cedar City Clinic offers some safety tips for kids during outdoor activities. Heads first. “Accidents are the most common reason kids die, much more common than cancer or asthma or mental health issues. When kids are doing activities like long boarding, biking, riding a fourwheeler, or horseback riding, they should wear a helmet. Period. It should not be negotiable. Elbow, knee, and wrist pads make me feel good, but kids wearing pads and no helmet frustrate me. We can fix a broken arm, but we cannot fix a severe brain injury.” Drink up. “Being in southern Utah, we are accustomed to high temperatures, but ignoring the fact that we are outside and in the sun can cause dehydration, heat exhaustion, and in extreme cases heat stroke.” One way to help prevent dehydration is to cover up using lightweight, breathable clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses. The other key? “Drink more water. You can tell if you are drinking enough if your urine is clear. Kids should drink at least every 20 minutes during activities in the sun. Water alone is beneficial up to a point, but if you’re sweating, sports drinks or flavored milk will help replace electrolytes and carbs. If your child becomes so stressed during an activity that they begin vomiting they should be evaluated in the ER.” Those on the sidelines, including infants and adults, can also be susceptible to heat exhaustion. “And just because you are at the lake or pool, that doesn’t mean you can’t become dehydrated.”
Reapply. “We recommend sunscreen even on cloudy days. The SPF number is not as important as reapplying every two hours. Use of sunblock on infants under six months has not been studied, so keep them out of the sun whenever possible and use only a minimum amount of sunblock.” Bug off. Long pants and sleeves provide a barrier against ticks, mosquitoes, and snakes. “It is also a good idea to use repellents including deet.” Deet can be poisonous, so don’t put repellent on anything a small child can get into the mouth. “Instead of spray, use a small amount of cream on the nape of the neck, elbows, and behind the knees.” When dealing with bees, keep in mind that they only sting if they’re afraid. “If a child gets a bee sting, use a credit card to gently scrape across the skin and remove the stinger. Using tweezers can squeeze additional toxin into the skin.” Water wise. “Backyard pools should have a fence at least five feet high on all sides, with gate latches that lock themselves and preferably an alarm that sounds when the gate is opened. Parents should use touch supervision for young children, keeping them within hand’s reach. Try not to use inflatable swim aids; instead choose a well-fitting life vest.” Swim lessons are a very good idea, and parents should know how to perform CPR. “The main thing to remember is that this is a great place to live!” concluded Dr. Newbold. “Get out and have fun, just be safe when you’re doing it.”
Because accidents aren’t scheduled. Find quick relief at Intermountain InstaCare. With our call-ahead program you can spend less time in the waiting room and more time getting treatment. We’re here when you need us.

By Nikki Allen Koontz The Utah Shakespeare Festival 2014 season is here! Eight plays running from June 23 to October 18, 2014, including four plays ranging from Shakespeare classics to a Stephen Sondheim musical to a world premier adaptation of a beloved novel. Tickets are available now via the Festival website, www.bard.org; telephone, 800-PLAYTIX; or at the Ticket Offices at the Adams Shakespearean and Randall L. Jones theatres. The Adams Shakespearean Theatre will feature three plays by William Shakespeare, playing from June 23 to August 30. First is the Festival’s continuation of its History Cycle with the third play in Shakespeare’s theatrical chronicle of England and its kings: Henry IV Part One. This follows the first two in the series produced in 2013: King Johnand Richard II.The History Cycle will continue chronologically through all ten plays in future years. Also in the Adams Theatre will be two more Shakespeare plays (Measure for Measure and The Comedy of Errors) which are part of the Festival’s ambitious Complete the Canon Project, an ongoing initiative to produce all of Shakespeare’s thirty-seven plays between 2012 and 2023. In the Randall L. Jones Theatre will be a new adaption of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, commissioned by and premiering at the Festival and written by Joseph Hanreddy and J. R. Sullivan, and Stephen Sondheim’s brilliant fairytale-inspired musical, Into the Woods. These two shows will run from June 23 to August 30. In addition, the Randall Theatre will host a fourth Shakespeare play, also part of the Complete the Canon Project: Twelfth Night.
One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, Twelfth Night will play throughout the Festival season, from June 23 to October 18. Rounding out the late end of the season will be playwright Steven Dietz’s Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, a mystery adventure about the world’s most popular detective, and BoeingBoeing, a high-flying farce by French playwright Marc Camoletti. Both will play from September 20 to October 18. “I think 2014 embodies the perfect balance of progressive programming for the Utah Shakespeare Festival,” said Artistic Director David Ivers. “Most importantly, by producing four of Shakespeare’s plays we further deepen our connection to our namesake playwright. I’m particularly excited that Twelfth Nightwill have such a long run in the Randall, allowing Shakespeare to be exposed to our loyal guests and new students across many regions.”

FITNESS By Emily Fonnesbeck RD, CD, CLT
As the weather gets warmer, many find motivation to amp up their fitness. This is great, but let’s remember that food fuels fitness. What you eat will impact how you perform. You want to pre-fuel and re-fuel…meaning you need to eat before and after! Here are some general guidelines to get you started. 1. Hydration: Weigh yourself before and after your workout. The difference will be the amount of water lost through sweat. For every pound lost, drink two cups of water. This will ensure adequate hydration. Your urine should be clear or pale yellow – another sign that you are drinking enough water. 2. Pre-Fuel: Consume a small amount of complex carbohydrates right before a workout. A small piece of fruit may be all you need. If you have two or more hours before, try to eat a balanced meal of protein and complex carbohydrates (toast with peanut butter and fruit) to ensure adequate energy. 3. Energy: For workouts lasting longer than an hour, you want a carbohydrate source during the workout. I usually recommend my clients dilute tart cherry juice concentrate in water (with added electrolytes if you are a heavy sweater). Tart cherry juice is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It has been shown to reduce the effect of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and aid in recovery from exercise. It is also an effective treatment for arthritis, showing a more powerful effect than some prescription medications. 4. Re-fuel: Be sure to eat within 30-45 minutes of finishing your workout. A post workout meal or snack should, once again, be a balance of protein and complex carbohydrates. A bowl of oatmeal with nuts and fruit, salmon with quinoa and veggies, or a salad with beans, seeds and fruit are all great options. 5. Consistency: What you eat when you aren’t exercising is just as important. Regular, balanced meals will ensure you have the energy for each and every workout. Balanced meals full of nutrient dense

Kids and Water Safety By Dr. Michael Marsden Last summer, more than 200 children between the ages of one and fourteen drowned in a swimming pool or spa in the U.S. The most tragic thing about drownings is that they are almost always preventable. They happen in pools and spas, lakes and rivers, bathtubs and sinks. I have even seen a case when someone literally drowned in a bucket of water. Admittedly, accidents are going to happen. I don’t want parents or caregivers to feel they are being judged when they do. Just as we will never prevent all car accidents, we will never prevent all drowning accidents. But we can do better. It is extremely important that kids get safety training around water, and they should start young. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death among children between the ages of one and four, and nearly three-quarters of last summer’s drowning victims were younger than age five. I am a proponent of Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) self-rescue training for infants and small children. This intense infant swim training teaches children to flip over on their backs if they fall into water. I really recommend it as soon as babies become mobile. As they get older, children should have swimming lessons and be taught a healthy respect for the water. Swimming pools and hot tubs should have double barriers. If the backyard is fenced, a second fence surrounding the pool or a strong cover that will hold up if a child falls or walks on it will provide an extra measure of protection from accidental drowning. Life jackets are a must, especially around large bodies of water. They are also appropriate for smaller children at pools, but don’t replace close supervision. I have watched people at the lake put their kids in life vests and then leave them alone. That’s a recipe for disaster. No precautions substitute for close, qualified adult supervision. In nearly every drowning or near-drowning I have seen, the first words the parents say to me are, “I only turned my head for a few seconds.” That’s all it takes. Not only do the people supervising need to be vigilant, they should also be comfortable around water and trained in rescue breathing and CPR. There have been recent changes to CPR, so now is a good time to refresh that training. Adults can drown too. The biggest problem for teenagers and adults is that they think 24 www.cedarcitymag.com
they can do more than they can. Alcohol, drugs, and even cold medicine can impair judgment and contribute to drowning deaths. I did my pediatric residency in the Phoenix area, which at the time had one of the highest incidences of drowning and near-drowning. It seemed I never had a shift in the intensive care unit when I didn’t have a child there as a result of a near-drowning. It’s a topic that has become personal for me. Please, this summer, respect the water. And don’t forget to have a great time!

Sunscreen: Six Things Everyone Should Know by Dr. Benjamin Carter A few months ago, I diagnosed a patient with skin cancer. The patient was accompanied by a family member who asked me, “How can the sun, which is good for us, cause skin cancer?” The answer to that question is too long to explain in detail in this article, but her question made me think in broader terms about things that are good for us, but can cause damage if exposure is excessive. Too much thyroid hormone causes hair loss, tremors, rapid heart rate and other health problems. Too much ibuprofen, which can be helpful to treat pain, can lead to kidney failure. Too much calcium can cause abdominal pain, kidney stones, memory loss and bone fractures. All of these things, when produced or consumed in appropriate amounts, are beneficial to our bodies. You can, it would seem, have “too much of a good thing.” Some things we have control over, such as our consumption of ibuprofen and our sun exposure. Some things we do not have control over, such as our thyroid hormone production (or in my case my chocolate consumption). The things we can control or behaviors we can modify are things we should pay particular attention to. My patient required surgery to treat her skin cancer. While surgical removal of skin cancer is commonplace for me in my practice, for many of my patients this experience causes anxiety and discomfort. It is my preference to avoid the sun damage that can cause cancer in the first place, so as to avoid biopsies and surgeries later on. Hopefully the information presented below will help us improve our interactions with the sun and its rays and reduce our risk of skin cancer. Here are six things everyone should know about sunscreen: 1) SPF stands for sun protection factor – it is based on a sunscreen’s ability to reflect or absorb ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. It has no reference to ultraviolet A (UVA) rays. Both UVB and UVA rays from the sun can cause cancer. There are two ways to think about SPF. First, SPF is a way to measure how long it will take for someone to get sunburned. SPF = your time to burn with sunscreen/your time to burn without sunscreen SPF 15 = 150 minutes to burn with sunscreen applied/10 minutes without sunscreen applied If it normally takes me 10 minutes to burn (have my skin turn light pink) and I apply SPF 15 sunscreen, it will take 150 minutes for me to burn. The second way to think about it is based on blocking power as a percentage: SPF 15 blocks 93 percent of UVB rays SPF 30 blocks 97 percent of UVB rays SPF 50 blocks 98 percent of UVB rays Anything over SPF 50 is likely providing marginal benefit at substantially increased cost.
2) Not all sunscreens are created equal. The term broad spectrum refers to the fact that a particular sunscreen can block both UVB and UVA rays. However, even amongst broad spectrum sunscreens there are differences. Perhaps the most important thing to understand is whether or not you are using a physical blocker (zinc) or a chemical blocker (avobenzone). They About the Author are both effective but physical blockers Dr. Benjamin Carter was offer a more complete barrier to UVB raised in St. George and attended Dixie College and and UVA rays. Newer zinc sunscreens can the University of Utah prior be both effective and virtually invisible. to moving to Milwaukee, I recommend zinc oxide concentrations Wisconsin for medical above 7%.

Ben enjoys spending time with 60-120 minutes making reapplication of his family at home and in the sunscreen every two hours a must. outdoors. 4) There is no such thing as waterproof, sweat proof or all day protection when you are talking about sunscreen. In 2013, the FDA issued formal regulations prohibiting sunscreen manufacturers from making these claims. Sunscreens must now use the terms water resistant, sweat resistant and long lasting protection. Dr. Ben’s Tips for Enjoying the Sunshine • Apply sunscreen 15 minutes prior to exposure • One shot glass of sunscreen to cover your body (quarter of a bottle) • SPF 30 to SPF 50 – Nothing more, nothing less • Sun protective clothing reduces sunscreen applications considerably • Remember the high priced real estate – Protect the ears, nose and the rest of the face 5) Vitamin D deficiency has not been associated with sunscreen use. There is some controversy regarding this topic, but to date, the large scale medical studies indicate no significant reduction in vitamin D production following application of sunscreen. This is particularly true for the majority of us who use far less than the recommended amount of sunscreen (recommended amount is one shot glass for full body coverage). Alternative Vitamin D sources include salmon, eggs, fortified milk and orange juice and oral supplementation. 6) In addition to preventing skin cancer, sunscreens also prevent wrinkling, discoloration of the skin and aging of the skin. Many of these effects are the result of UVA rays not UVB making broad spectrum coverage even more important. Cedar City Magazine | June/July 2014 25

How to Get By Emily Fonnesbeck
The summer is quickly approaching bringing many opportunities for wearing a swimsuit. You may be planning family vacations, heading to the beach or just splashing in the pool with your little ones. While these events should be fun and enjoyable, for many they can be cause for anxiety. The question, “Is my body ready for a swimsuit?” may have crossed your mind. Look no further! I have a step by step plan that will have you fully prepared for a summer of fun in the sun: Step 1: Walk to your bedroom Step 2: Find your swimsuit Step 3: P ut the swimsuit on your body There you have it!
Chances are you have a mental list of benefits you plan to receive when you finally meet your health, weight and fitness goals. Looking “good” in a swimsuit may or may not be one of them. It is very common thinking that if I could just accomplish X, Y and/or Z, then I would be happy. If I could just get rid of this challenge (be it weight, health, financial, relationships, etc), all my problems would be solved. The reality is if you aren’t happy now, you never will be. In my experience as a dietitian and nutrition coach, health and weight challenges are meant to teach us something deeper. Food and weight is just the teacher and only when you identify the lesson and
view the challenge as a learning experience will you find true happiness. While each individual’s experience is unique, there are four common lessons I see often: 1. Letting Go. This could mean letting go of past hurts, anger and/or resentment or letting go of the need to control yourself, others, or outcomes. There is beauty and healing in letting go of expectations or the need to measure up to an ideal we or others have set for us. 2. Acceptance. Your health and weight concerns are often calling for you to accept yourself. They teach you to be an advocate for your own well-being and to speak out about
Health & Wellness
what will and won’t be good for you. This should be done in a loving and compassionate way, but also with confidence in who you are. When you accept yourself, it becomes much easier to accept others. Acceptance means a lack of judgment and comparison; a sure fire way to find true happiness. 3. Balance. There is a balance between restriction and chaos that I call Freedom, Choice, and Responsibility. Finding that balance takes practice. It is truly rewarding to see that as clients find balance with food, they find balance in life. The way you approach food is the way you approach life. How do you approach food? 4. Patience. An essential element to baking
bread or planting a garden is TIME. You can have all the right ingredients and take all the necessary steps…but it still takes time. Only when the experience or challenge is viewed as a learning experience will you realize faith and hope in what is possible. Your health and weight concern isn’t about the food, it’s what the relationship with food is trying to teach you. Until you learn the lesson, the challenge will stick around. Once you dig deeper, you may find your answer. You may also find the challenge is free to leave. I invite you to take a step back and look a bit deeper. I also invite you to look at the list of all you expect to happen when you meet
your goal and start living that list NOW. I am a big believer in positive energy and what you put out is what you get in return. If you start living your ideal life, you might just find it. While you are at it, put on your swimsuit and head to the pool.

Modesty Made Modern By Cedar City Magazine Staff Just a few short years ago, if you were not one of the lucky ones who could find that “perfect swimsuit” at your local retail stores, your purchase soon became an odyssey. An odyssey that for some, lasted the entire summer. Finding the right size, the right type, the right color, the right cover up, the right amount of modesty... some women even resorted to improvising with T-shirts and board shorts just so they could swim, and enjoy the summer sun. Sound familiar? Thankfully the shopping landscape for swimsuits has changed and we now have more choices than ever. Whether you plan on sitting by the pool, playing on the beach, houseboating at the lake or participating in any other water activity, your odds are better than ever that you will be able to find that “perfect” suit to fit your lifestyle and desired activity this summer. One area that has seen phenomenal growth is the area of modest swimwear. In fact, an on-line community now flourishes for those interested in this type of attire. Knowing that modesty means something
different to everyone, all of us are unique and each of us has a story. Some of us have scars from surgery, some have extreme skin sensitivity to the sun, some are older, some are younger, some are plus size and some are pregnant. For some of us the words “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny and Bikini” have never nor will ever be a part of our vocabulary, and some of us are just simply tired of shopping at stores that only cater to girls with runway model shapes. Even women with the “perfect body” may still want to try something a little more modest. The modest swimsuits of today are not the same as yesterday. Styles that are modest, yet comfortable and uniquely designed, are catching the eye of bloggers across the country. This totally fashion conscious world that we live in is actually beginning to embrace modesty without even knowing it. A variety of new styles have also emerged, from Simply Modest’s “swimdresses” to HydroChics’ sporty leggings, knee-length skirts, and skorts to DivintaSoles’ suits that resemble conventional one-piece swim suits
but with a little more coverage. Beverly Swimwear, where you can actually design your own swimsuit, has suits that are a little longer and have more overall coverage while maintaining that mid-century modern look that everyone is wanting to wear this summer. Availability is easier than you might think, from the internet to your local Costco. You can look on Pinterest and literally find hundreds of pictures, comments and websites that cater to modest swimwear. Check out sites like Downeast Basics, Hapari Swimwear and Beverly Swimwear just to mention a few. Others include, WholesomeWear, HydroChic, Simply Modest, Diviine Modestee and DivinitaSole. Make this the year that you choose to enjoy the water. Go skim boarding, paddleboarding, tubing or any other activity while soaking in the sun and do it in the perfect swimsuit for you. One that YOU picked out yourself, one that fits your lifestyle and is a modest as YOU choose.
