Changes proposed for water conservancy district BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor IRON COUNTY – With crucial water decisions looming in the valley’s near future, County Commissioner Dale Brinkerhoff has proposed changes to the Central Iron County Water Conservancy District to prompt more community involvement. Brinkerhoff, who also serves on the CICWCD board of directors, said

the proposed changes were discussed at the Jan. 10 commission meeting and would change the way CICWCD board members are appointed. Currently the commission selects all the board members with no input from the cities. Brinkerhoff believes three board members should be recommended by Cedar City, two by Enoch, one by Kanarraville (also representing the unincorporated areas of the county), and one by the county,

representing the agricultural community. While the commission would still appoint the members, they would take the suggestions from the communities, he said. He would like to see elected officials from the communities as a majority of the board members, he added. “I want that decision-making process to come from the cities,” he said. Four of the seven current board

members have terms expiring at the end of February – Brent Hunter, Leon Hyatt, Sheridan Hansen, and Laurence Ashdown. Rick Bonzo, Roy Urie and Brinkerhoff have terms expiring in February 2013. However, as Brinkerhoff is now the county commissioner overseeing the CICWCD, he will be resigning from the board when the changes are in place, he said. That will leave five positions and this year, he wants to see

two positions recommended by Cedar City, one by Enoch, one by Kanarraville, and one by the commission to represent the agricultural areas. Enoch currently has one elected representative in Bonzo, who is also on the Enoch City Council, he said. Brinkerhoff said the reason for his proposal is that he feels the cities are paying the bulk of the taxes to fund See WATER | 7

K-9 officer’s life celebrated BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The life of K-9 officer Gino was celebrated during a memorial service Saturday that drew a large group of law enforcement officers and community members. Gino served the community for more than seven years before passing away Jan. 3 after being hit by a car. He spent those years with his handler, Officer Jason Thomas, and the two were well known throughout Utah and surrounding areas. Cedar City Police Lt. Darin Adams, who oversees and coordinates the department’s K-9 program, was among those who spoke at the service. He said Gino’s health had been deteriorating and he believes the dog’s sudden death could have been a blessing in disguise. Gino had been in the process of retiring. Cedar City Police Chief Robert Allinson said some

may be critical of giving so much attention to a dog, but Gino was an ambassador for the police department who reached out and touched lives throughout his life. He joked that Gino had never complained about the

criminals and detecting drugs or doing demonstrations during Red Ribbon Week, the annual Scout Expo, or numerous other events throughout the year. Gino and Thomas spent countless hours training as well, he added.

long hours he worked, because he didn’t have a new vehicle, or because he hadn’t had a raise that year. “Gino just loved to be there by Jason’s side,” he said. Adams said Gino was dedicated to all aspects of the job, whether apprehending

“Gino was serious about what he did,” Adams said. Those present watched a DVD put together by Tristan Dumas and saw photos and video footage of Gino doing demonstrations, interacting with children, training, and posing with some of the drugs

he had detected. There was even footage of Gino leaping from a landing helicopter and apprehending a “suspect” during a training. The video said in his time with the police department Gino helped to seize billions of dollars worth of drugs. Thomas also spoke at the program and said Gino saved his life on multiple occasions and was always a great protector of himself and his family. He had so many good memories, he said. He told some humorous stories about Gino, including relating an experience about a week and a half after he received Gino, when the dog jumped from the third story of the parking garage and was unharmed. Thomas added that while Gino was hurting and beginning to have problems, he had a very good year, participating in marijuana farm raids and much more. See K-9 | 8

CEDAR CITY – Some very brave, or perhaps crazy, souls will be jumping into the freezing waters of the Lake at the Hills at noon Saturday as part of the second annual Polar Plunge. The plunge was organized last year by Bob Tate, Cedar City Leisure Services director, as a fundraiser for Special Olympics Utah. Polar Plunges have become a popular fundraising idea for Special Olympics groups across the country and Cedar City is now one of many cities that have the event. Tate said that after Cedar City got the Lake at the Hills, he decided it would be a good idea to try holding a polar plunge in the community. Each participant will pay $25 or may gather $25 or more in pledges to test their fortitude in the icy depths. Participants can register as a team or individually. “Plungers” will receive a hooded sweatshirt for participating. This year, there will be a costume contest, Tate said. The

Utah Shakespeare Festival will have an expert on hand to judge the participants for the best costume. The plunge will take place on the boat ramp on the southeast corner of the lake, Tate said. Currently there is no ice on the lake, so participants will run down the ramp into the water and back out. Tate said there will be life guards, EMTs and firefighters on hand to keep things safe in case anyone gets too cold. When asked why anyone would voluntarily jump into freezing cold water, Tate said people do it because it’s a good cause and also because they’re probably a little crazy. Last year almost 90 people participated and more than $2,000 was raised for Special Olympics Utah. “It was our first year and it went great,” Tate said. To register, call the Leisure Services office at 865-9223 or sign up in person at the Cedar City Aquatics Center (2090 W. Royal Hunte Drive). No wetsuits are allowed. Participants can register on the day of the event for an extra $5.

BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor ENOCH – Bud Swensen of Horrocks Engineering visited the city council last Wednesday to discuss a draft of the Capital Facilities Plan and the council set a date for an open house. Councilor Gary Wilcken said the council has already had one public hearing and a comment period, but he wants community members to have every opportunity possible to view the plan and provide input before it is approved. The other city councilors agreed, and Councilor Rob Dotson said he likes the idea of an informal open house rather than a public hearing. The open house was set for Feb. 16 from 4 to 6 p.m., before the council’s meeting. Swensen said the document is very close to being a final draft, but he wanted to councilors to take time to

look at it and give him any other suggestions. A couple of the councilors had read the document, but most had not had time between receiving it and the meeting. Feedback so far was positive though. “I went through this plan and I was very impressed,” Dotson said. Councilor Celesta Lyman asked Swensen if the fissures in the Park View subdivision had been taken into account in the plan, as they could affect the city’s total build out. He said he did not factor that in, he just used their zoning information. If land values were to skyrocket again, he said, someone would find a way to develop the subdivision. The city council also discussed a new emergency operations plan at the meeting. Dotson said Marie Brooks had written them a new plan that fits the city a lot better than the 10-year-old plan the council had looked at during

Youth learn leadership skills, more at conference

Helen Rosso

Youth participated in activities and heard from speakers during last week’s Leaders 4 Life conference at the Heritage Center. The event drew a larger crowd than last year and was a success. BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The second annual Leaders 4 Life conference at Festival Hall drew 118 middle school and high school age students who heard from speakers on a wide range of subjects. The conference, put on by the Safety Solutions Coalition, was a success. Helen Rosso, coalition project director, said the 118 participants was a good increase from the 96 who attended last year, and they are hoping for even more next year. The youth provided a lot of great feedback and really enjoyed themselves, she said. They liked the speakers and had fun with the mechanical bull that was brought in. She said there was a good mixture of new and returning participants, and this year included the addition of students from Gateway Preparatory Academy. Other schools represented included Cedar High School, Canyon View High School, Canyon View Middle School, Cedar Middle School, SUCCESS Academy, and Parowan High School. It was a diverse group of youth, she added, with those who were already highly involved in school and outside activities and those who were considered more “at risk.” All participants were selected by teachers and councilors at their schools. Rosso said the coalition learned from the first year and was able to make it even better this year. It was also helpful that instead of a committee of four, like last year, this year’s conference was put on by a committee of nine people.

Sarah Kunzler, a sophomore at Cedar High School, said she had been involved with the Safety Solutions Coalition for three years and attended last year’s conference. While she enjoyed the speakers and conference both years, she felt that this year’s conference improved on last year’s success. Cedar Middle School eighth graders Branson Palmer and Jessica Brown said they were both at the conference for the first time and they really enjoyed it. They especially liked keynote speaker Ryan Moran and felt Reggie Shaw’s message about avoiding texting and driving was very important for youth, they said. Moran’s presentation Friday morning was very fun and high-energy and really drew the youth in. At one point he took volunteers Ashley Hancock and Dakodah Terry onto the stage, blindfolded them, and got them to eat “live Canadian newts,” which actually ended up being wet gummy worms. He used the demonstration to discuss the fear of the unknown, pointing out that neither of the girls had ever seen a Canadian newt but were worried to eat something they couldn’t see. Moran told the students that as leaders, they will meet many new people and they should be open to new people, new ideas, and new places. He also talked to the youth about how honesty builds trust and told them to be inclusive, not exclusive. Other keynote speakers included Shaw, Alli Rathgeber of Utah NetSmartz, Christian Moore of the WhyTry pro-

gram, and Miss Utah Christina Lowe. Presenters for Thursday’s break-out sessions included prosecuting attorney G. Tyler Romeril from the Iron County Attorney’s Office, health educator Cambree Johnson from the Southwest Utah Public Health Department, Detective Mike Bleak with the Cedar City Police Department, former Skinhead recruiter and member TJ Leyden, Mark Fuller of WhyTry, temporary Patrol Sgt. David Evans with the Cedar City Police Department, and actor Corbin Allred, who is also currently a paramedic, SUU student, and more. Rosso said they had some fun door prizes such as an mp3 player, iTunes gift cards, and T-shirts. They appreciated their sponsors, who helped with food costs, she added. Partners and sponsors listed in the program were the coalition, the Cedar City Police Department, The Heritage Center, Five Buck Pizza, Toadz, Iron County School District, the Iron County Attorney’s Office, the Utah Army National Guard, NetSmartz, Southern Utah Mobile Crisis Team, StrHATE Talk Consulting, DPS/Communications, Southwest Health Department, Coca-Cola of Southern Utah, Walmart, State Bank of Southern Utah, Valley View Medical Center, Tristan E. Dumas Photography, Iron X Fit, DJ Johnny Utah, Enoch Police Department, Mega Pro, Iron County Children’s Justice Center, Sherrie Hansen’s State Farm Insurance, Aura Surreal, Cedar Heart, Safety Quest Academy, Del Taco, and Primary Children’s Medical Center.

Don’t count the democrats out A t a dinner event last week, the talk turned to politics, and the woman across from me commented that the future for Barack Obama and the Democrats looked dim (“Just look what happened in the recent election,” she said. “The Democrats are toast!”). She might well be correct in the short-term. But outside of Utah and a few other Deep South GOP bastions, the Republican Party should have major worries. The GOP needs to read the tea leaves. In many ways, the hearty and ultra-conservative Republican base is out of step with the general voter. The controversy over gay rights is a perfect example. The majority of Republicans in the U.S. Senate voted against the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the military, yet the measure was supported by 78 percent of Americans (Support nearly doubled in 17 years). The numbers are closer on gay marriage, but even here the Republicans are drifting away from public

opinion. In a Pew survey, fewer than half of Americans now oppose gay marriage – the first time in 15 years of Pew poling – and an Associated Press poll reported that 52 percent supported the right for gay men and women to marry. By almost a two-to-one margin, people under 35 support gay marriage. Of course, younger Americans often don’t vote but senior citizens and aging baby boomers do. And here, the GOP future is still murky. In order to significantly cut the federal budget, the knife must be taken to Social Security and Medicare. The elderly strongly oppose any cuts. The Republicans want to repeal ObamaCare, yet when baby boomers were asked

to name their biggest worry about retirement, almost half named rising health care costs. With last week’s news that a major insurer in California wants to jack up insurance rates by 59 percent, don’t be surprised if many Americans start looking more favorably on government intervention. The Republicans are firm that tax rates should not rise for the rich – but only about 33 percent of people in an AP poll agreed. Republicans by and large oppose the DREAM Act provisions associated with illegal immigration; depending on which poll you read, about half of Americans support the concept. Of course, the Democrats face their own problems. The vast majority of

voters say they want the U.S. to pull troops out of Afghanistan and Democrats are especially angry that Pres. Obama hasn’t already pulled the plug. But by the time of the next election, most of the troops will be home and if the economy continues to improve, Pres. Obama might not look like easy pickings. The Republican dilemma is that growing populations – younger, urban, and ethnic – seemingly side with the Democrats on social issues. The Republicans attract older voters who want spending cuts, but are downright cranky on cuts to Social Security and Medicare. If the Democrats play their cards right (insisting that tax cuts only go to employers who hire new employees and by penalizing employers who ship jobs out of the country), they will still be in the game. The views expressed in this column are the opinion of the writer and not necessarily those of the ownership or management of this newspaper.

Brian Head, Duck Creek to host snowmobile tour event BRIAN HEAD – When March comes in like a lion, you’ll want to be in Brian Head, Utah to hear the roar. Organizers from Brian Head and Duck Creek are making final preparations for the first Brian Head/Duck Creek Snowmobile Poker Run scheduled for March 5. “Brian Head is well known for the ski resort and great snow,” said Angie Haderlie, Brian Head Chamber of Commerce director, “but we are also the gateway to some of the most fantastic snowmobiling terrain in Utah. We want to give

people an entertaining way to enjoy it.” Despite the name, the event does not include actual gambling. Riders will be able to leave from either Brian Head or Duck Creek on Saturday morning, stop at five locations along the way, and pick a card. The riders will gather at The Grand Lodge in Brian Head Saturday night for a party and awards celebration. Riders will leave at set times through the morning to reduce congestion on the trail. The ride includes the scenic vistas surrounding Brian Head

Peak, the designated Cedar Breaks National Monument trail, and riding through the Dixie National Forest. “We hope people will come see Brian Head and Duck Creek from a whole different perspective.” said Tom Stratton, Brian Head Public Works director. Participants may bring their own machines or rent them through the businesses on the mountain. Interested parties can register early on the chamber website, www.brianheadchamber. com, or call (888) 677-2810.

Family struggling to cover funeral costs CEDAR CITY – After 24-year-old Nicholas Goodman passed away unexpectedly Jan. 6, his family is struggling to cover his funeral costs. Goodman’s sister, Mary Parks, said they have raised only a small portion of the funds they owe so far, and the family, which lives in Cedar City, still needs to raise more than $2,000. Any donations will help, she said.

Goodman and his fiance, Shawneen Store, were expecting a baby girl, according to his obituary. He had a very big heart and is missed by many, it added. Parks said donations can be made at State Bank of Southern Utah under Nicholas Goodman’s name or by contacting Southern Utah Mortuary in Cedar City.

New club to provide youth with a drug-free hangout BY CARIN M. MILLER Reporter CEDAR CITY – Cedar City’s newest hangout for youth, Gotham, will have a trial run opening Saturday at 7 p.m. where kids of all ages are invited to enjoy live music in a safe, drug free, environment. Lance Van Sant said he and his wife, Yvette, decided to open Gotham after realizing there were not many venues available in the surrounding area where kids can get together and do fun things that won’t possibly lead to trouble eventually. “My wife and I, we have four kids, and you realize there is not much in this town for them to do (and) there really is not a place for kids to go and be social,” Van Sant said. “We have been in this city three years. In the other places we have lived like Salt Lake City and Las Vegas kids had venues, places they could go, but not really around here.” Living in such a remote location with such a high population of youth, Van Sant said it is easy for kids to get caught up in drinking and doing drugs out of boredom and lack of positive outlets for them to invest time into. “I want to teach kids they can have fun without doing the bad stuff (because) if they find something that’s fun that doesn’t have that (alcohol and drugs) they are going to keep coming back to it,” Van Sant said. “We want to let kids know if you have

good grades, you have taken the DARE pledge and you stay away from the bad influences in life, we are going to reward that at Gotham.” According to a press release, the club will have a comic book theme, hence the title of the club itself.

AT A GLANCE:

Gotham

A safe, drug-free environment with live music and fun ■    Opening Saturday ■    7 p.m. ■    1065 S. Main St., Cedar City ■    Call 701-0438 for more information “In the front will be a study area and store where they will sale comics merchandise and snacks,” the release reported. It went on to say that while the club is open to kids of all ages there will be strict guidelines and adherence to city curfew standards as well as on-site security making sure the zero tolerance policy is adhered to. To ensure that there are plenty of fun activities for people of all ages to enjoy, Van Sant said Gotham will offer a variety of classes, themed nightly events such as karaoke night and college

bingo night, as well as live music on a weekly basis. “We are trying to create an all ages venue that goes from little tiny kids all the way on up to college students and parents,” Van Sant said. “(One thing) we have been planning to do on early afternoons is … teach art lessons. Afterwards we will have a young kids dance party where they do the hokey pokey and fun stuff like that.” Saturday’s trial opening will act as sort of a rough draft, Van Sant said, offering the opportunity to work out the kinks in the club and gauge the public response so they can fine tune activities to meet the needs of the community. “So far we have K9 Eclipse and possibly one other band then at 10:30 DJ MOGE will take over,” Van Sant said. “At about 1:30 I will start DJing and just keep going all night long until the last kid drops.” The doors will open at 7 p.m. and I.D.s will be checked at the door. All those under 18 must have arrangements in place to make sure they have left by curfew unless accompanied by a parent. Anyone without I.D. will receive an under 18 bracelet and must leave by curfew as well. There will be a small cover fee at the door but the first 30 SUU students with current and valid student I.D. get in free. Gotham is located at 1065 S. Main St. Contact Lance at 701-0438 with any questions or find them on Facebook.

Groovefest looking for support in ninth year BY CARIN M. MILLER Reporter CEDAR CITY – The ninth annual Groovefest American Music Festival will take place in June, but for now those who wish to support the event are being called to action. “An event such as Groovefest takes quite a bit of money to operate … each year gets a little more expensive and more capital is needed to run it,” a press release reported. According to the release, though many previous Groovefest supporters are already on board this year, in order to meet the needs of the five-day festival and continue to keep it free to the public, no offer of support, big or small, will be turned away. As always the creators of the festival have planned an eventful get-together and in traditional Groovefest style Tim Cretsinger, founder, said they have added one new element this year just like they have every year before. “Groovefest Run For the Music – Quarter Marathon was an idea based on the popularity of such events the last few years,” Cretsinger said. “We approached Byron Linford, Cedar City’s event coordina-

tor, and he decided he wanted to take on the planning of it. He is getting help from local runner Mark Hollingshead.” One new element from last year that will be making a comeback in 2011 is the collaborative efforts of the Cedar City Arts Festival, which happens to be celebrating its 10th anniversary, according to a press release. “This event hosts over 40 booths from fine art to fine crafts in multiple categories such as ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, painting, and more,” the release reported. “To participate in one or both events (the arts festival will also take place in August) artists must submit an application to be juried by a selection panel that looks for distinctive concept, excellent workmanship, appropriate presentation, and medium.” The continued relationship is an added bonus, Cretsinger said. “Pairing up with the Arts Festival was the best thing that could’ve happened,”Cretsinger said. “The two elements of art just had a natural flow and it was a very successful partnership.” In addition to the traditional forms of support

Groovefest is seeking, one new element being sought after this year is that of a lifetime supporter that would be willing to provide a stage for the festival permanently. “Another element of the support levels that we discussed was the ‘lifetime supporter’ level,” Cretsinger said, “which would basically mean someone or some entity who could step up and buy us a stage, so we would not have to struggle to obtain one each year.” As June draws ever nearer and the anticipation of the musical extravaganza builds, Cretsinger said he is just grateful that Cedar City residents and businesses have been as helpful over the years as they have and the free festival can continue to provide live entertainment based in the deepreaching roots of American music. “We feel fortunate to live in a community that embraces the arts and to be in an area that we can feel good about sharing with the rest of the world,” Cretsinger said. “Groovefest is our gift to the community and we are forever grateful to the people of Cedar City for embracing it as their music festival.”

Additionally, some very important decisions, including whether to participate in the Lake Powell Pipeline, will be made in the near future and he believes the cities should be making those decisions. CICWCD General Manager Scott Wilson provided a memo to the members of the board and the county commission, outlining the benefits of having an appointed board of directors. “One of the strong positives to having an ‘appointed board’ is that individuals with specialized knowledge and interest can be appointed to these boards of (directors),” the memo reported. “These

individuals bring specialized knowledge and interest to these positions and have volunteered thousands of community hours assisting the local governance leadership burden.” Wilson added in the memo that “unelected boards” throughout the state have donated countless hours on hospital boards, cemetery maintenance boards, fire district boards, and more. “I feel that our regional community is at a point where very thoughtful and grounded decisions need to be made based upon knowledge,” Wilson said in the memo. “My existing board of (directors) has accumulated significant specialized knowledge of our local water issues while serving on the CICWCD board of (directors). I am concerned that this accumulated expertise is on the verge of being disregarded at a

time when their accumulated knowledge should be valued most.” Wilson also attached a document listing the experience of the board members. He added at last Thursday’s meeting that while the communities and county need to be brought together to discuss the serious issues the valley is facing, he believes a board of directors with representatives from the communities could have a tough time and not have the necessary experience. “Whoever sits on the board of directors is going to be making huge decisions,” he said. Brinkerhoff said the existing board does have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and city officials serving on the board would still have the opportunity to consult with those individuals and draw upon their knowledge if they

are willing. Wilson said upcoming decisions will include the Lake Powell Pipeline, for which cost figures should be available around March, how to deal with the subsidence and earth fissure problem, and a new discussion about trying to get down to $150 gallons per capita per day, which would eliminate a need for more water being brought in. Resident Ed Hahne said he figured his water usage, even with two college students living with him part of the year, to be less than 130 gallons per capita per day. Wilson pointed out that figure also includes public facilities, industry and tourist use. It is reached by dividing the amount of water used in the entire valley with the number of residents. “It would be devastating to the community,” board member Sheridan Hansen said.

Continued from page 1 “Gino was at the top of his game,” he said. It is not often in the area that a bite apprehension is necessary, he said, and he attributes that to education and all the time K-9s and their handlers spend out in the community, he said. Most of the time when a K-9 arrives a suspect will give up. Thomas also told the crowd about Gino’s influence when he was shot just more than four years ago. He said he would not have come back to work if it hadn’t been for Gino, and he was thankful he did. The program also included musical numbers from the South Elementary Singers and performing trio Ash Creek. Todd Boyer of Southern Utah Mortuary also spoke and Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Kim Riddle, Thomas’ sister, read a poem. The service concluded with a K-9 salute, as service dogs from Iron County and several other areas were brought in by their handlers and voiced a tribute to Gino.

Satellite Salon series unites generations through music

Dr. Lynn Vartan teaches children about rhythm while getting the involved by playing drums in the “Music Unwrapped” program Saturday. BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The two-day Satellite Salon series engaged community members of all ages Friday and Saturday through music and art. Series creator Dr. Lynn Vartan said it is very important to her to bring people together through the creative arts, and the series allows that. It includes all ages, from toddlers to adults, in the experience. The series began Friday afternoon with a master class featuring Vartan, guest artist soprano Kathleen Roland, and painter Brian Paul Hoover. Vartan said the class was amazing, with five university students and three high school students participating. They had a really great question and

answer session in particular, she said. Saturday morning families participated in an intimate “Music Unwrapped” question, where all the children were invited onto the stage to interactively learn about their voices and rhythm. The children all spread out on the floor and learned about proper inhaling and exhaling for singing, and practiced singing vowels on a scale. Those who wanted to were invited to show their best imitation of an opera singer. The kids were also told that they can be musicians any time by using their voices and by using their bodies as instruments.They practiced clapping, stomping, snapping and more while following a rhythm. Participating children

also enjoyed getting to play the drums, and many had an opportunity to come up with an improvised solo. “Anything goes when you’re improvising,”Vartan told the kids, and she and Roland improvised a song. A few children also took the opportunity to improvise through singing and playing the drum. After the program, one parent told Vartan and Roland that they felt “Music Unwrapped” was a great opportunity for their children, as they were able to learn through fun and in a less rigid format than standard music lessons. Roland said she enjoyed the “Music Unwrapped” portion of the series, and the children were very well behaved. “They were so great,” she

said. Hoover was not at the morning program, but six of his paintings were and families had an opportunity after the program to look at the paintings and play on the drums and the marimba. The series concluded Saturday evening with a free concert for community entitled “Music with a Splash.” The concert included Roland and Vartan performing various pieces showcasing vocals and percussion instruments, as well as Hoover doing splash painting onstage while the musicians provided an improvised performance. Vartan said the Satellite Salon Series is planned with two each year – one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester.

Ailey II dancers to bring passion, beauty to season CEDAR CITY – CCMA’s first artistic offering of 2011 is the medium of dance – always a favorite with audiences. Ailey II Dance Company performs Friday at 7:30 p.m. on the Heritage Theater Stage. Ailey II is said to be a blend of the country’s best young dancers and choreographers lending their talent, passion and creative vision to the art of dance. This group, known as one of the most popular companies in the U.S., was formed in 1974, when the legendary Alvin Ailey, at the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, initiated a workshop comprised of the most promising young dancers in attendance at the Alvin Ailey school. It was from that workshop that the original members of Ailey II were hand-picked by Mr. Ailey himself. This new group embodied his pioneer-

ing mission, to “establish an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people.” The dancers performed in over 25 cities during their 200910 North American tour. Under the artistic direction of Sylvia Waters, Ailey II gives its dancers opportunities to refine their technique through performance and teaching experience. Many of the past members are now professionals: teachers, dancers and choreographers with the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, other professional dance companies, schools and on Broadway. Ailey II continues to garner critical praise, honors and awards for its residency work with colleges and universities as well as for its visits to elemenSee AILEY II | 11

USF’s ‘Macbeth’ traveling school performance offered in Cedar City CEDAR CITY – On Friday at 7:30 p.m. the Utah Shakespeare Festival will present an exclusive performance of the “Macbeth” Shakespeare in the Schools touring production for Cedar City residents. Tickets are $5 and are available at 1-800-PLAYTIX or 586-7878. Tickets will also be available at the door. “Students will love ‘Macbeth’ because it is a passionate play filled with bloody, supernatural elements,” said Festival Education Director Michael Bahr. “Despite the thrilling nature of the play, it is also a morality tale that has a great message for students of all ages. At the conclusion Macbeth suffers the consequences of unchecked ambition.” There will be additional Cedar City performances

from today through Friday for local school groups, and one special performance for Foothill High School tonight at 7 p.m. From January to April the festival will present the education tour of “Macbeth” to more than 30,000 students in four western states. The tour will spend 13 weeks on the road visiting schools, community centers and prisons across Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and Wyoming with about 60 performances in 50 schools as part of the Shakespeare for a New Generation program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. Director Christopher Clark has created a “garden shed” production of “Macbeth” with the actors using various found objects as set and prop pieces. The stage will be filled with sticks, lad-

ders, wheel barrows, umbrellas, and other objects that would likely be found in the average garden shed, but each of these items will be used to represent something entirely different. For example, a stick will be used to represent a sword. “If the average student were staging this play with friends in their backyard these are objects that the student would likely have access to,” said Clark. “Our production takes everyday objects and uses them in an innovative way to tell the story. I think students will find this production to be inspirational as well as educational.” Clark is an assistant professor of acting at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. Prior to his current appointment he was a member of the faculty at Brigham Young

University where he directed touring productions of Shakespeare for nine years. Clark earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Exeter in England, where he worked at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. The program focuses on original practice in performance, which informs the way Clark approaches his directing projects. “What we are doing here is not all that different from how Shakespeare’s company See MACBETH | 11

The power of suggestion is often more effective. The rudimentary props and set pieces used in this production, through the power of suggestion, tell a great story.”

Each year, the festival creates a production of a Shakespeare classic to visit communities across four western states. The ten-person touring group serves as both the acting company and technical crew for each production, with seven actors playing more than 20 different roles, a stage manager, technical director, and company manager. The group also works with students in workshops ranging from stage combat to Shakespeare text.

Members of Ailey II perform “Blues Suite.” The group will visit Cedar City Friday at the Heritage Theater.

UTAH – Registration is now open for the 24th Annual Arbor Day Poster Contest. Teachers in K-6 and special education are encouraged to get students to participate. The theme for this years poster contest is Trees are Terrific … Where You Live and Play! All participating schools receive a tree to plant and the winning school in each of three regions receives a $500 award. Other prizes will be awarded to the artists in the statewide and regional category. The deadline for registration is Feb. 15 and poster entries will be accepted until March 23. The aim of the contest is to promote the planting of trees in community settings throughout the state. Urban forests have been linked to overall community health, safety and quality of life. This year, the Utah Society for Environmental Education has identified specific activities that tie the poster contest to the state’s core curriculum. Meridith Perkins, Urban and Community Forestry Coordinator said the poster contest gives kids a chance to think about forests in and around where they live and to express what they think about trees. The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands has hosted the poster contest since 1987. Last year 134 schools participated, resulting in 551 entries.

Rams win 5 in a row, undefeated in region BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor

Siobhan Sherwin

Parowan’s Zack Wood goes for a basket during the Rams’ Friday victory over Cross Creek Academy at home.

Parowan's boys’ basketball team is currently sitting at the top of Region 13, having defeated every other team in the region save Millard who they face tonight at home. Last week saw Parowan improve its winning streak to five after putting down the bottom two teams in Region 13: Enterprise and Cross Creek. They started off their week hosting Enterprise on Wednesday. Though Enterprise's team is very young and not very accurate at the basket, Parowan coach Blair Einfeldt complimented the team's effort against the Rams. “They are very well coached,” Einfeldt said. “They were more prepared for our pressure than any team we've faced so far this season.” The Wolves even managed to outscore the Rams in the second quarter, but Parowan's Zack Wood laid up 25 points and Gary Hamilton had 20, leading to a 74-55 victory. Hamilton's 20 points represented a career best for the senior who didn't even make the varsity team two years ago. Today he is not only one of the most important people for the Rams, but was voted by his teammates at the beginning of the season as one of the captains.

“Gary is a very efficient scorer,” Einfeldt said. “He distributes the ball when he needs to and he can make the basket when he needs to. What he is now is a tribute to all the hard work he has put in.” Parowan went on to host Cross Creek Academy last Friday in a competition that resembled the Harlem Globetrotters facing off against the Washington Generals. Though the competition was never serious, gameplay was emotional and hectic with tough fouls emerging from often blatant hostility on the floor. Cross Creek Academy is a residential treatment school and as such athletics have never been a priority. Students come and go, preventing any real chance of serious competition. With the realignment of classifications by the UHSAA, Cross Creek will move down to 1A next season where Einfeldt feels they will find a better fit. “They struggle a bit more than other teams,” Einfeldt said. “But they are a region team and we have to play them like a region team. I think they'll do better in Region 1 and I wish them well.” Tonight at 7, in Parowan, the Rams face Millard, the only other regional team with an undefeated record (4-0, 5-8 overall). After tonight one of the giants of Region 13 will fall.

Falcons lose King, but end losing streak BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor There was something off during last Wednesday's Canyon View/Hurricane match-up's starting lineup announcement. Rather than running on the court in his uniform, Kameron King was wearing a blue shirt and tie. Turns out, a broken ankle has sidelined one of Canyon View's top athletes, removing him from play until at least the second week of baseball season, where he was expected to play as a starting pitcher. With the highest average points per game in the team with 11.2, his loss was a tough blow to the Falcons, but they managed to rally together to bring down the Hurricane Tigers 51-49 providing their first regional victory of the season. “I'm very proud of my team,” King said after the game. “They really stepped it up and filled in the gap I left them.” The victory was an upset for Hurricane, which is enjoying a 3-3 regional record (11-4 overall) and who went on to beat Cedar High last Friday in a 61-41 game. Zack Hansen and Ryan Robbins stepped up in offense, scoring 16 and 15 points respectively for the Falcons. The first half saw a virtual tie before

Hurricane made a 19-13 run in the third leading by 7 going into the fourth. Robbins and Zane Affleck both had steals in the final minutes of the game that resulted in baskets leading to a 13-6 fourth quarter run and the Falcons first victory since region competition began. For Canyon View coach Jim Langford, the victory showed a team he knew existed all season. “We've never had a game where we couldn't have won,” Langford said. “We've been close all season and tonight we had every player stepping up and playing like I knew they could.” The victory celebration was short lived, however. On Friday the Falcons hit only 31.1 percent and fell to the Pine View Panthers 36-65. After a tied first quarter, the Panther's gave the Falcons a 21-8 run in the second, digging a hole the Falcons could not escape from. A 20-6 fourth quarter cemented the win. The Falcons improved their record to 1-5 (6-9 overall), tying with Pine View for last place in the region behind Hurricane. Canyon View travels to Snow Canyon tonight before having a chance this Friday to take revenge as they host their in-town rival Cedar High.

SUU’s gymnastics team took another victory last Friday, defeating Sacramento State with a season-high score.

Thunderbirds score season-high, take victory over Hornets Southern Utah swept each individual title on Friday night as the Thunderbirds scored a season-high 195.750 victory over the Sacramento State Hornets. The win leaves the T-Birds undefeated on the year at 3-0 and perfect in the Western Athletic Conference at 2-0. “We looked extremely good tonight,” coach Scott Bauman said after the meet. “We had to battle with a few line-up changes, but I think the bar team looked incredible and the beam and floor teams were amazing.” SUU led start to finish during the meet as Lindsey Schultz got the team out to a quick start with a meet-best 9.800 on vault to claim the title. As a team, the Thunderbirds began the night with a 48.675 and steadily increased as the meet progressed. Sacramento State began the night on bars and struggled with two falls, trailing the home team with a 47.775 after the first rotation. The T-Birds only competed five on the uneven bars with each gymnast: Ari Lamb, Caitlin Kennedy, Brooke Cersosimo, Lauren Jeffrey and Alyssa Click scoring a 9.775 or better. Kennedy and Cersosimo led the team with career-bests of 9.800 to share the individual title. Southern Utah's team score of 48.925 was the highest this season as the lead grew to almost two points after the second rotation, 97.600 to 95.975. SUU broke through the 49-point barrier for the first

time of the season during the third rotation as the T-Birds scored a 49.050 on beam. The feat was repeated on the final rotation as the Thunderbirds scored a 49.100 on floor. Sacramento State finished the night with a pair of 47's, scoring a 47.975 on floor and a 47.000 on beam for its final tally of 190.950. Click and Lamb were the story on beam for the Thunderbirds as the duo scored matching 9.875’s, marking career highs for both gymnasts as they shared the individual title. Sophomore Michaela Chernoch also tallied a career high, scoring a 9.775 to share third place with teammate Shannon Coughlin. Coughlin saved her best for last, scoring a meet-high 9.900 on the floor exercise to capture her third consecutive floor title of the season. SUU gymnasts swept first through fourth on the event as Lindsey Schultz (9.875), Click (9.800) and Lamb (9.775) rounded out the top scores. Lamb also claimed the all-around title with a careerhigh 39.100, matching Southern Utah's season-high set by Cersosimo last week against UCLA. Southern Utah will be back in action this week when the Thunderbirds travel to Provo, Utah for a matinee meet at Brigham Young University. The T-Birds will join Iowa State and Utah State in the quad meet, scheduled to begin at noon in the Smith Fieldhouse.

DHHS Thunder takes top Missing numbers hurt PHS wrestling region spot in swimming BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor

BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor Looking to be the favorite at state, the Desert Hills Thunder took first place in both the boys’ and girls’ competition at the region swim meet last Thursday and Friday. The new Cedar City Aquatic Center was packed with athletes and spectators on both days of the competition in its first competitive event, providing the space and amenities that such a competition requires. The Desert Hills girls’ team has taken region every year in its three-year history, upsetting Cedar High's previous 24 years. Earning 406 points, the Lady Thunder had a comfortable lead over Cedar's second place finish of 345. Canyon View finished in third place with Hurricane in fourth. The Thunder boys’ team took home their second regional win in a row, scoring just above Canyon View’s team. Cedar came in third with Hurricane in fourth. On the first day of competition, everything went to Desert Hills. Earning gold in all eight contested events for both boys and girls, the Thunder found themselves in a commanding lead that attracted the attention of the entire state. The coaches poll has since placed the Thunder's teams as the favorite at state. The following day saw more competition from Cedar High and Canyon View, which should preview some amazing individual performances when

The Region 9 swim meet took place Thursday and Friday. CHS and CVHS had some impressive individual performances. the teams travel to state on Feb. 4-5. Of special note for the Falcons was the Canyon View boys' 200 freestyle relay team that claimed the gold with members Riley Brown, Noah O'Connell, Richard Edwards and Matt Bray earning a time of 1:34.87 ahead of Cedar and Desert Hills. Cedar High earned three gold medals in the meet. Sophomore Emily Morris was gunning for the 1:07.71 state record for the women's 100 breaststroke, but fell just short, with a time of 1:08.29, though she was well ahead of all other competitors. Morris had a 10th of a second loss in the previous day’s 50 freestyle behind Krissia Beatty of Desert Hills and is hoping to improve on both times at state. “I don't really like having

the pressure,” Morris said. “But I think I could take (state) in both.” Cedar also saw Senior Casey Mauer come into his own, taking the gold in the 100 men's breaststroke ahead of Desert Hills' Bradey Karratti. Mauer and Karratti are ranked first and second in the state in the men’s 100 breast and will be each other’s toughest competition at the State Championships. Cedar also saw a gold go to Chanel Anderson in the 100 free. Anderson will go to state with the sixth best time in the state for the 100 free, which she earned at the CHS invitational at 58.02. In 4A, the Snow Canyon Warriors took first place for both boys and girls in the final region competition with a split region.

Going into a wrestling match knowing that two matches will have to be forfeit is a tough prospect. Such a scenario precludes the chance of a team victory unless every other match is a victory. While the Parowan Rams have a very tough echelon of high-weight seniors, anemic performances from lower weight classes combined with forfeits to doom the Rams to defeat against the Beavers Jan. 18. “We had some great wins near the end with some of the upper weights,” Parowan coach Kyle Johnson said. “But we need to win those lower weights.” Twelve points came from the forfeits in the 120 and 130 weight classes, but it was the early losses in the 103 and 112 classes that put the Rams in real trouble. Josh Campbell put Parowan's first points on the board with a pin early in the first round, but another victory wouldn't come for the Rams until Trexton Lozano faced off against Zach Eyre at 152. “We've wrestled each other quite a bit,” Lozano said of Eyre before the match. “He's a good wrestler, a good friend, and he's part of a good team. I know that he is going to give it his all and I will too.” The longest bout of the night, Lozano and Eyre wrestled through four rounds. Lozano started with a slim lead, but a series of back-and-forth takedowns in the final seconds of the third round left the score tied 7-7. In the fourth round

both wrestlers were called on stalling before Lozano was able to throw down Eyre with less than a second on the clock for two points and the win. After the exhaustive match the two wrestlers showed their respect for each other with hugs and heartfelt compliments. “It was a great match,” Lozano said. “Every time we wrestle it is a great match and you have to respect that.” Lozano's win put the Rams score to 9, behind Beaver's 31. Victories at 160 and 171 took the score to 9-48, which cemented Beaver’s win before Parowan's big boys stepped onto the mat. Even though their team had all but lost, Parowan's

show had just begun. The Rams’ three biggest seniors: Isaac Blackburn (189), Clayton Cluff (215), and Collin Shurtleff (285), each earned pins, rocketing Parowan's score to 24. Both Blackburn and Shurtleff pinned their opponent in the first period while Cluff took a 5-3 firstround lead before his pin with 44 seconds left in the second. Even with the strength of Parowan’s top dogs, Johnson knows he'll need to see victories in the lower weights if Parowan hopes to compensate for its incomplete team. “We are going to face these guys again at the region duel and at state,” Johnson said. “Hopefully we will have a better outcome.”

Siobhan Sherwin

Parowan’s Trexton Lozano beat Beaver’s Zach Eyre Jan. 18. The team fell with losses in lower weight divisions and two forfeits.

The Jaguars had their record slip to 3-15 overall and 1-7 in Summit League play. Senior forward Challis Pascucci used a 15-point second half to finish with a teamhigh 25 points while also grabbing a gamehigh 11 rebounds to notch her seventh double-double of the season and seventh career 25 point game. Fellow senior Caitlyn Sears scored 20 points and made five steals as the Thunderbirds improved to 3-0 when Pascucci and Sears both reach 20 points in a game. Freshman Desiree Jackson added 11 points and fellow freshman Andrea Jones came off the bench to score 10 points. Southern Utah used a season-high 53 percent shooting effort and 41-19 rebounding advantage to record their eighth straight home victory. The Thunderbirds also shot 24-of-32 at the free throw line and forced IUPUI into 18 turnovers. “I was very pleased with our effort on the boards tonight,” coach JR Payne said. “Rebounding was huge and we did a good job of executing on the offensive end against a tough, scrappy, very athletic IUPUI team. It always feels good to get a conference win on your home floor in front of our fans.” SUU opened up a 10-point lead in the early minutes after a couple steals ignited a 14-4 run for the Thunderbirds. Pascucci had six points during that stretch that gave the Thunderbirds an 18-8 lead at the 1:36 mark. IUPUI answered with its own run over

the next two minutes, using a 9-0 spurt to make it a one-point game. Sears caught fire in the final minutes of the half, scoring seven consecutive points in SUU’s 9-3 run to open their lead up to 31-23 with 4:37 remaining. IUPUI continued to knock down shots though, using the three-ball to keep SUU’s lead in the single digits. Following the Jaguars fourth three of the half, Sears hit a nice runner in the lane and Jones and Jackson each hit a pair of free throws as the Thunderbirds went into the half with a 39-31 lead. SUU shot 48 percent from the floor and scored 12 points off of 10 IUPUI turnovers in the first 20 minutes. Sears and Pascucci finished the half with 11 and 10 points, respectively. The Thunderbirds opened the second half with Pascucci scoring seven points in SUU’s 12-4 run to open up a 53-39 lead at the 15:40 mark. Again the Jaguars battled back, putting together an 11-3 spurt to get within six. SUU then went back to Pascucci and Sears to pull away for good, using an 11-2 run highlighted by consecutive layins for Sears and a big three by Jones in the right corner. Freshman Angel Dorn capped the run with a layup to give the Thunderbirds a 72-58 lead at the 6:29 mark. Southern Utah would keep their lead in the double-digits for the rest of game. Pascucci’s free throw gave the Thunderbirds their largest lead of the game, a 16-point advantage at the 5:53 mark. The Thunderbirds finished with 19 second-chance points and had sophomore forward Tayler Anderson grab seven boards to go with her six points. Goff finished with eight assists and five points. Pascucci produced a 13-for-14 effort at the charity stripe.
