THE OLD Main Street Theater has been up for sale for several years and is one building on Main Street the city would like to have filled. BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The Cedar City Redevelopment Agency met after the city council meeting last Wednesday and heard a presentation from Cedar City-Iron County Economic Development Director Brennan Wood and

others. Wood said since HyettPalma Inc. visited Cedar City in November and updated its old study, a committee had been formed with about 15 people from across the community. That committee had identified some priorities. Those priorities were presented at the meeting

Wednesday to the agency. Wood said the top priority had been identified as business recruitment. Some of the top priorities included streetscape, business mix and placement, and nightlife. Kristie McMullin, of Southwest Applied Technology College, presented on some refined action items

for business recruitment on behalf of the committee. She said the first and probably most important tool in business recruitment would be a Buxton study. Buxton Company is based in Texas and a Buxton study would provide an analysis of See DOWNTOWN | A12

IRON COUNTY – The Central Iron County Water Conservancy District Board of Directors will have its first meeting with its three new board members this week and a Capital Facilities Plan for the Lake Powell Pipeline project will be presented at the meeting. The meeting will be Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the Cedar City Library in the Park. The Lake Powell Pipeline CFP includes cost estimates and those numbers will be important as Iron County communities that draw from the Cedar Valley Aquifer have some big decisions to make in the near future. The new board members include Cedar City Councilor Steve Wood, Enoch Mayor Bob Rasmussen and

Kanarraville Mayor Keith Williams. They will be sworn in at Thursday’s meeting. The board changes came because of the county commission’s desire to have more elected officials on the board. CICWCD General Manager Scott Wilson said though it has seemed that the Lake Powell Pipeline project has moved slowly to this point, many studies and reports have been prepared. Now, the information has been collected and will be given to the cities and county so decisions can be made. It is important that the region take action to get more water, as there is currently more being withdrawn from the aquifer than is put back in each year, he said. “I hope that the community can appreciate how challenging this water situation is,” Wilson said.

Feedback given at federal solar meeting BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Department of Energy visited Cedar City last Wednesday for one of 13 public meetings regarding areas it has proposed as “solar energy zones.” The agencies have identified 24 areas in six western states as ideal for utility-scale solar energy development. They had the meetings primarily to accept public comments, and will accept written public comments through April 16. Three of the proposed solar energy zones, and the only ones in Utah, are under the BLM’s Cedar

City Ranger District. The proposed Escalante Valley SEZ is 6,614 acres and is about 15 miles north of state Route 56 and west of Lund Highway. The proposed Milford Flats South SEZ, at 6,480 acres, is in Beaver County, about five miles west of Minersville. Also in Beaver County, the proposed Wah Wah Valley SEZ is 6,097 acres and is northwest of the Milford Flats South location. A map of all proposed solar energy zones and more detailed information on each of them is available at http://solareis.anl.gov. The SEZs have been identified through the preparation of a draft Programmatic Environmental

Impact Statement, with is different than a standard Environmental Impact Statement. “A Programmatic EIS evaluates the environmental impacts of broad agency actions,” said Karen Smith of Argonne National Laboratory. “It does not evaluate specific projects.” The completion of the solar PEIS is expected in autumn of 2011, and this is a crucial time, as public comments will only be accepted on the draft through April 16. Comments may be submitted online at http:// solareis.anl.gov or mailed to Solar Energy PEIS, Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Avenue, See SOLAR PEIS | A12

Impact fees examined City approves water system BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor PAROWAN – Councilor Steve Decker presented the rest of the city council with impact fee information at last Thursday’s meeting and said he believes the city’s impact fees could be lowered significantly. Bruce Challman, a retired engineer who is serving on the city’s economic development committee, has recently been going through the study that the impact fees are based on. He said the study took a projected population of 63,000 residents, which is the maximum based on land available. Decker said Challman reprojected the city’s infrastructure needs based on reasonable growth and a reasonable bond period of 20 years. Challman said they based growth on the governor’s office’s numbers, which may still be a little high. He said it would probably take 150 years or more for Parowan to grow to 60,000 residents. Census numbers from 2010 put the city at 2,790 residents. Decker said Challman was still going through the information for the power impact fee, and probably would be for a couple more months. However, he believed all the other fees could be lowered from around

$9,500 to less than $4,000. The council can also choose to leave the fees where they are at or set them anywhere in between. They just cannot exceed the amount recommended in the impact fee study. Challman said it is possible that if impact fees were more reasonable in Parowan there would be more construction going on. Councilor Troy Houston said he would like to see the numbers on the power impact fee before making any sweeping changes, and said the council believed it was doing the right thing for the city when it previously set its impact fees. “I’m going to say we were mislead,” he said. Decker said he is fine with waiting for the power information. He just wants the council and the public to know the fees are being looked at. Connection fees will also be examined, and the new information will be given to the city staff for their comments, he said. Councilor Dennis Gaede said he wants staff to see how lowering the impact fees could affect them and the city’s finances. “I’m all for lowering the impact fees,” he said. “I just don’t want us to make them too low to where we get into trouble.” The council also discussed the power bond, which they

had previously talked about refinancing when the Center Creek Hydro Plant project was on the table. The council voted Feb. 10 to sell or decommission the plant, but City Manager Shayne Scott said last Thursday the council can still think about refinancing the current bond. He said there may be some merit in using a general obligation bond to refinance. General obligation bonds must go to an election and they base the ability to pay those bonds on property taxes. Currently the city’s power bonds are funded through the user fees, and Scott said they could continue to pay them from the same revenue source if they got a general obligation bond. Having the property tax guarantee, though, would allow them to get a significantly lower interest rate. One resident said that would allow the city to raise property taxes, even if that wasn’t the intent, and it would be a personal guarantee to the bond of all the residents, rather than the power users. Scott said that was true, but that he felt it could be a benefit to the city. “I think it would be irresponsible of us not to try to get the best interest rate possible,” he said. No decision was made at the meeting in regards to a general obligation bond.

engineering agreements BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The Cedar City Council approved four engineering service agreements at last week’s city council meeting for work on four water line projects and the city is moving forward quickly on its infrastructure improvements. City Engineer Kit Wareham said in an interview that the city has broken

the water, sewer and storm drain improvements into 10 projects. The city will do the engineering work on six on the projects and the engineers have now been approved for the other projects. Wareham said the next few months will be very busy. Work on one of the sewer projects is expected to begin in two to three weeks and he hopes work will have started on all the projects by

the middle of June. The city council voted Feb. 2 to move forward with the projects, spending $5 million on the water system, $1 million on the sewer system, and $870,000 on the storm drain system. “We need to get a jump on some of our aging infrastructure,” Mayor Joe Burgess told other city and county officials at a coordinating council meeting March 2.

Enoch looking for city manager BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor ENOCH – More than nine months after letting its former city manager go, the city has announced that it will be hiring a new city manager and applications are due by Monday. A job description and list of requirements has been posted on the city’s website, www.cityofenoch.org. “The City Manager serves as the Chief Administrative Officer of the

city and the duties include supervision of 13 employees in the administrative and public works departments, with additional employees in the summer,” according to the information on the website. The city manager also oversees the “municipal, financial and budgetary matters; enforcement of all policies, programs, laws and ordinances; participation in the development of the city’s goals and future planning; and providing advice to the

City Council on all significant matters affecting the city and its operations,” the information sheet added. Enoch City currently has a population of about 5,800 and a budget around $1 million. The city has been without a manager since former City Manager J. Bryan Dial’s employment was terminated at the June 2 council meeting.

UHP trooper OK after car hit on interstate BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor IRON COUNTY – Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Kim Riddle is planning to go back to work this week after sustaining minor injuries when her parked vehicle was hit on Interstate 15 March 7. Riddle said Saturday her legs and knees were bruised and swollen from hitting the dash and the muscles in her arms and back were strained. She had also been getting daily migraines since the accident. She was taken to the hospital by a Cedar City Police officer after the crash, and spent about three hours in the emergency room before being able to go home. Riddle said she fortunately had her seatbelt on at the time of the crash, and she actually looked up and saw the car coming in her rearview mirror just before it hit her. She grabbed the steering wheel to brace herself, straining her arm muscles on impact. The trooper was investigating a rollover crash just north of Cedar City and had been there just over an hour at the time of the impact, she said. The accident occurred at about 9:30 a.m., according to a Utah Highway Patrol press release. The roads were snow covered and it was still snowing. The occupants of the Nissan car that hit Riddle’s car were not injured, the press release reported. Riddle’s car was totaled, she said.

MAYOR JOE BURGESS poses for a photo with Chin Ho Lee, who was named a Business and Economic Development Ambassador for the city last Thursday.

Business, economic development ambassador to represent city BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – Chin Ho Lee, a Korean native who became an American citizen and has served as a Federal Bureau of Investigations special agent, was named a special Business and Economic Development Ambassador for Cedar City last week. Lee was presented with a certificate recognizing the title Thursday at 1 p.m. in the Cedar City Council Chambers. The city council approved the title in its meeting last Wednesday. According to Cedar City’s proclamation, which Mayor Joe Burgess read before presenting it on a plaque to Lee, Lee has a master’s degree in international business from the University of Washington. “In order to promote economic growth and the general welfare of the City of Cedar City, the City Council finds that it is in the best interests of Cedar City to name Mr. Chin Ho Lee as Cedar City’s spe-

cial Business and Economic Development Ambassador,” the proclamation reported. Lee spent just over 24 busy hours in Cedar City, touring Valley View Medical Center and Southern Utah University and meeting with VVMC and SUU administrators, Utah Shakespeare Festival Executive Director R. Scott Phillips, Iron County School District officials, and SUU Asian students. Lee spoke briefly after receiving the certificate and title, and said Cedar City is small but has great potential. It has a beautiful airport terminal and he liked the statues on Main Street, he said. He hoped he would be able to be a good middle man for Cedar City and other communities in other areas of the world, he said. He is currently stationed in Japan, but travels extensively, especially in Asia, and has many opportunities to meet people. “On the Asian side I’ll do my best,” he said.

Former Cedar City Mayor Gerald R. Sherratt said Cedar City has a long association with Korea, as its men in the 213th spent time there during the Korean War. Cedar City has a sister city relationship with Gapyeong, a city in South Korea, he added. Lee said he chose Cedar City to represent because his friend, Wayne Wickizer of Western Trade Partners, is looking into business opportunities in Cedar City. Wickizer said hee and Lee were both FBI agents and both taught defensive tactics. Wickizer has been attracted to Cedar City because it is a “complete city,” he said. It has good transportation access, infrastructure, schools, and everything a business could need. He hopes Lee’s connections in Asia will be beneficial. Wickizer has been working with several local individuals, including Brennan Wood, Cedar City-Iron County Economic Development director.

SUU great at promoting experiential learning To the Editor: Southern Utah University has done a great job promoting experiential learning through study abroad, internships, national student exchange, and so on and I want to truly thank them for that. There is so much more to college than just sitting in a classroom and studying and SUU has helped students become involved in so many different ways. Personally, I have done one study abroad to Kenya, Africa and this May I will participate in another study abroad to Europe as well as an internship. Groups like the Leavitt Center for Public Service and Politics, the Sargon Heinrich Global Engagement Center, the Intergovernmental Internship Cooperative, the Service and Learning Center, and so many others help students to get involved with service

projects, internships, and study abroad trips that can help students gain experience, build resumes, and truly get the most out of their college experience. SUU is continuing to push for even more experiential learning for students and in my opinion this is taking the university in the right direction. I hope that all students at the university will get involved in these programs and I hope that their families will encourage them to do so as well. I want SUU to know that we as students truly appreciate their efforts on this front and look forward to the continuation on this path. It is my hope that the community will also be able to see the value in experiential learning and support SUU as they continue to take the university in this exciting direction. Tilli Huntsman Enoch

BYU a Perry Como place in a Lady Gaga world

W

hile the news media howled at House Bill 477 shielding public access to government records, the public was concerned with two other (juicier) items. No one asked me what I thought of H.B. 477. Instead they asked … What did I think of actor Charlie Sheen? (Answer: He needs a shrink more than he needs an agent); and what was my position on how BYU handled a star basketball player who broke the school’s Honor Code? (Answer: Well, that’s a little more complicated). BYU’s suspension of Brandon Davies had all the ingredients of a tonguewagging story: sex, religion, sports, and a national ranking. The twittering was not just about Jimmering. Suddenly BYU was the lead story on ESPN. Commentators took different views; Ogden columnist Jim Burton admitted that BYU could be viewed as a “laughingstock,” but supported the school for holding

Cyclops BY BRYAN GRAY athletes to the Honor Code standard. In contrast, Salt Lake sportswriter and radio host Gordon Monson criticized BYU for not letting the athlete play basketball while setting up a repentance plan with his LDS bishop. A BYU graduate told me he agreed with Monson (“Premarital sex is not uncommon in Provo,” he said. “Making a big deal about one particular athlete is unfair. It should have been handled outside of the media after the season.”). I can see both sides. Certainly BYU’s stand is popular some Utah counties where residents applaud the school (and the church) being different from other universities

and popular culture. Being different is a selling point – but BYU supporters could also be different by applying blue paint on their faces before attending Sunday services. The asylums are full of people who are “different.” The key is to be different for a worthy purpose understandable to the average person. Neither do I worry that Brandon Davies was “picked on.” Of course he is being treated differently than the average BYU student. A basketball player on a Top Ten nationally-ranked team has more notoriety than a math major. The Honor Code was not a secret. The player knew what was expected of him when he enrolled and

received his scholarship. BYU’s action will not help in its future athletic recruiting, and many will view Utah as an oppressive backwater, a Perry Como kind of place in a Lady Gaga world. Locals will praise BYU as a bulwark of integrity and a school-of-its-word. In The Razor’s Edge, author W. Somerset Maugham wrote, “Men and women are not only themselves; they are the region in which they were born, the city apartment or farm in which they learned to walk…the old wives tales they overheard, the food they ate…the poets they read, and the God they believed in. It is these things they have made them what they are…and you can only know them if you have lived them.” That’s the reason the BYU Honor Code suspension is controversial. The lifestyles of its critics are generally much different than those of its supporters. They see the issue differently, even though some active Mormons have heartburn over how the incident played out.

Rotary Youth Lounge dedication scheduled BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor

Ashley Langston

THE ROTARY Youth Lounge is just off the main lobby of the Aquatic Center and will be dedicated next Wednesday at noon. The club's donation made the room possible.

CEDAR CITY – The Rotary Youth Lounge in the Cedar City Aquatic Center has been completed and a dedication and ribbon cutting for the room is set for noon next Wednesday. The Rotary Club donated half the room’s cost to the city in September, and then sold bricks to help raise the rest of the funds. The total cost of the room was $25,000. The engraved bricks have now been installed. The room was in the city’s original plans for the aquatic center, but was cut because of funding issues. The Rotary Club’s donation made it possible and it was added back into the plans. Nina Barnes, city councilor and Rotary Club member, said the lounge is a place for kids to spend time, study or play while waiting for their parents. It will especially be useful for members of the swim teams. The lounge is just off the main lobby of the aquatic center.

Senior volunteer programs to get funds from walk CEDAR CITY – Volunteer Center of Iron County, a nonprofit volunteer service agency, invites community members to sign up to participate in the inaugural “Walk in the Park” event on April 16 at the West Canyon Park in Cedar City. The “Walk in the Park” will benefit Senior Corps volunteer programs including Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. The walk will also serve as a celebration and appreciation of all community volunteers in conjunction with National Volunteer Week. The walk is supported through individual contributions and corporate sponsorships. Participants can register online at http://volunteersolutions.org/vcoic or at the Volunteer Center, 88 E Fiddlers Canyon Road, Suite H, Cedar City. The minimum registration amount for participation is $10. The 3K walk will begin at 9 a.m. from Coal Creek trail in the West Canyon Park and continue up Cedar

Canyon and back. Each participant will be given a goodie bag. Prizes, entertainment and refreshments will be included. Senior Corps volunteer programs are run through the Volunteer Center of Iron County, which has played matchmaker to hundreds of nonprofit organizations needing assistance, and countless volunteers eager to help them. Since 1995, organizations serving a myriad of causes from animal advocacy to violence prevention have relied on the Volunteer Center as their source for volunteers who want to make a difference. In the three-county area (Iron, Beaver and Garfield), the Volunteer Center has more than 750 volunteers. The time these volunteers donate to the community adds up to more than 71,000 hours. That hour figure multiplied by $20.25 (the current estimated value of the volunteer hour) represents a value to the community of over $1.4 million annually.

the cut is in the branch collar and that it is a clean cut with no jagged edges or tears, so that the tree can naturally close off the open wound, preventing insects and disease from entering the tree. Never allow anyone else or yourself to “Top” your trees. While this not acceptable practice will quickly shorten the height of your tree and get the tree’s branches out of utility lines and other potential safety hazards, it also quickly opens the tree up to a host of diseases, potential death, and other problems like a dramatic disruption to the tree’s food distribution by cutting off more than 30 percent of the tree, causing the tree to go into starvation mode; opening up the tree and surrounding vegetation to scalding and full sun exposure; and increasing the speed of tree disease and decay fungi. Additionally, the tree sprouts that shoot up from each topping cut are not structurally attached to the trunk, causing weak limbs and branches that won’t withstand a lot of weight from winter storms and wind. While topping a tree will cost less in the short term than proper pruning skills, the long term costs include tree disease treatment expenses, constant proper pruning of the tree to provide some structural stability, tree removal and replacement expenses, and increased liability risk of weakened limbs and branches. Why Hire an Arborist? The following information is taken from the International Society of Arboriculture Trees Are Good publication “Why Hire an Arborist,” copyright 2007 International Society of Arboriculture. “Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to

your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Sometimes tree work should be done only by experts who are trained and equipped to work safely in trees. “An arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. “What is a Certified Arborist? Certified Arborists are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience and by passing a comprehensive examination developed by the International Society of Arboriculture.” Arborists can provide such services as pruning, removal, emergency tree care, planting, and plant health care, a concept of preventive maintenance to keep trees in good health, which will help the tree better defend itself against insects, disease, and site problems. Arborists can also provide fertilization, cabling or bracing to help support to branches with weak attachment, aeration to improve root growth, lightning protection system installation, and spraying or injecting for insect and disease problems. “Selecting the Right Arborist for the Job.

Cedar Breaks trying for Barbecue eatery cuts ribbon family snow hike again BY LISA BOSHELL Reporter CEDAR BREAKS – In an effort to increase awareness of the winter recreational opportunities available at Cedar Breaks, a free family snow shoe and cross country ski hiking series will continue with its second hike this weekend. February’s hike had to be cancelled due to a large snowstorm, so this Saturday’s hike will feature the snowman-building contest that was planned for the cancelled outing. The hike will be a crosscountry ski or snowshoe tour

of Cedar Breaks, guided by the park’s rangers. Participants will be able to visit the winter Yurt for hot chocolate and the hike will be about two miles round-trip. Daphne Sewing, chief of education and partnerships at Cedar Breaks, said that there will be prizes for the snowman building contest with categories including tallest, biggest, ugliest and others. Cedar Breaks is asking that those interested in the hike should call their office and register so rangers can anticipate how many people will attend, so participants can be given safety information and in case of cancellation,

participants can be reached beforehand, Sewing said. Those interested should meet at 9 a.m. at the Cedar City Main Street Park pavilion (200 N. Main St.) or at 10 a.m. at Georg’s Ski Shop in Brian Head. Because of limited parking, participants will be asked to carpool to the trailhead. Sewing suggested renting equipment from SUU’s Outdoor Center or Georg’s Ski Shop. The final hike in the series will be Saturday, April 16. All the hikes are dependent upon good weather. For more information or to RSVP, call 586-9451.

SCOTT, HEATHER and LON ALLEN cut the ribbon at Sonny Boy's Barbecue last Friday. The business has been open in Cedar City for a few weeks but celebrated it grand opening last weekend. BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor

LISA BOSHELL

THe CEDAR BREAKS Yurt is will be the destination for Saturday's Family Snow Hike.

CEDAR CITY – Sonny Boy’s Barbecue, a new Cedar City business backed by years of family barbecuing experience, had its ribbon cutting last Friday with the Cedar City Area Chamber of Commerce. Lon Allen, who started the restaurant with his son, Scott, and Scott’s wife, Heather, said they have had restaurants in northern Utah for about nine years, but have been looking at coming to Cedar City for a while. “We’re excited to be here,”

he said. Allen said he has been backyard barbecuing for about 25 years, and raised his son around barbecue, so the family has “barbecue in our blood.” He has traveled extensively and tried a wide variety of barbecue, and they do it correctly, cooking the meat at low temperatures very slowly, he said. A lot of people in Utah think barbecuing is equivalent to grilling, so it is a continuous educational process, he said. Sonny Boy’s cooks its brisket and pork in its indoor pits for 12 to 14 hours, and on Friday

they were cooking ribs outside the restaurant in a smoker. “We do barbecue and we do it right,” he said. Their sides, including hush puppies, coleslaw and their popular fried cauliflower, are made fresh daily, Allen added. The northern Utah restaurants are called Lon’s Barbecue and Grill, but this store was named Sonny Boy’s because that is what Allen’s father used to call his sons and grandsons. He passed away last year. The restaurant also offers catering and hopes to be in Cedar City for a long time, Allen said.

First Fire Road Cycling event planned in Cedar City CEDAR CITY – Multisports Events, a division of Multisports.com, has announced Fire Road Cycling™, a new off-road cycling experience that will take place in Cedar City on July 9. The event will include a two day expo at Main Street Park in downtown Cedar City and feature courses of 25km, 60km, and 100km in distance – all on improved dirt roads offering riders of every level and their families the opportunity to experience the spectacular beauty of Southwest Utah and all the summer activities Cedar City has to offer. Multisports Events partner Paul Huddle said, “Our goal is to offer an off-road cycling event that is accessible to anyone and everyone. You won’t need extreme skills to enjoy this event but the 60 and 100km courses will definitely provide a nice challenge in terms of fitness – yes, there is a climb or two. “With the explosion in popularity of epic 100-mile mountain bike events, we believe that Fire Road Cedar City could be used as the perfect tune-up or even a

chance to get a taste of what comes with events of that magnitude,” he added. “It’s a challenging course that combines the elements of altitude, climbing, and spectacular scenery but without the need for extreme mountain bike handling skills. “Of course, we’ll have all of the aid, SAG, technical and EMS support that comes with our experience in putting on large scale professional events,” Huddle continued. “If you can ride a bike, you can be part of this event.” The 100km course will feature over 7500-feet of climbing with vistas of Kolob Canyon, Zion National Park, Brian Head and Cedar Breaks before descending back down to Cedar City. The 60km course has a total elevation gain of almost 5,000 feet and includes the same ascent of Kanarra Mountain Road (over 3,000 feet in 8 miles) that the 100km riders will climb. Novices will appreciate the gentle terrain of the 25km course that will include the same neutral roll-out on Main Street but skip the big climb for a tour of the west

side’s trails to the finish line at Main Street Park where the expo, awards, post-race food, and other festivities await. In addition to age group awards for the 25, 60 and 100km events, Multisports Events will offer a $3,000 prize purse in the 100km event. All the members of Multisports Events are also avid mountain bikers. “We are our own event demographic.” said Heather Fuhr, 15-time Ironman Champion. “When we ride, we now almost exclusively ride mountain bikes. I have done some off-road triathlons, mountain bike races, and adventure races and, frankly, had a difficult time enjoying them because I was constantly in fear of the technical aspects of these events. “Invariably, most courses were above my bike handling ability and skills. I didn’t have the background with this or associated activities and know I’m not alone. I love the Fire Road Cycling style of riding off-road. I love the fitness aspect, the quiet beauty, and

ability to go places I can’t access on a road bike.” Cedar City Mayor Joe Burgess said he was excited at the proposition of hosting the inaugural Fire Road Cycling event. “I’m excited Cedar City was chosen to host a mountain bike event of this quality and scope, but I was not surprised,” he said. “We really offer it all – great terrain, altitude, unmatched scenery, and the people and infrastructure it takes to pull off a really quality event. I’m confident that this race will become one of the premiere events of its kind in the country.” Roch Frey added, “Cedar City is an undiscovered outdoor enthusiast’s dream location – not just for the MTB rider in the family either. In addition to world class training facilities there are multiple national parks within a short drive, a Tony Award-winning Shakespeare Festival, and every amenity you could want. We didn’t just discover a phenomenal mountain bike venue when we came to Cedar City but a true vacation destination.”

Chickenpox outbreak found IRON COUNTY – The Southwest Utah Public Health Department, as of Friday, had confirmed 19 cases of chickenpox in Iron County in the past week. All cases reported were school-aged children, including many who were unimmunized. Chickenpox (varicella) is an acute contagious virus that typically starts with a sudden slight fever and a rash that progresses into hundreds of lesions. The illness lasts from a few days to two weeks. Symptoms usually appear within 14 to 21 days after being exposed. Chickenpox is

spread by coughing and sneezing, and by direct contact with an infected person or surface. The disease is often mild in healthy children but can cause more severe symptoms and complications in adults, pregnant women, premature babies, and anyone with a poor immune system. Getting chickenpox a second time is rare, but shingles, a disease caused by the same virus, can occur later in life in people who already had chickenpox. “We’re working with school administrators and families to prevent any further spread,” said Kari Abeyta,

SWUPHD Public Health Nurse. “We’re following state guidelines and having unimmunized kids stay home for 21 days after the last known case. Schools and daycare facilities are the most common places for chickenpox outbreaks, and it can last for months in a facility unless preventive steps are taken.” Vaccination is the best way to prevent chickenpox. Since the vaccine was approved in the United States in 1995, chickenpox cases have declined by almost 90 percent. For more information consult your healthcare provider or the SWUPHD at 586-2437.

Driver Safety Class offered CEDAR CITY – An AARP Driver Safety Class is being offered for those over 50, to refresh riving behaviors and sharpen skills. Cars have changed and so have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads we drive on every day. Upon completion of the four-hour course, a certificate will be received for a

discount on auto insurance that is good for three years. There are no tests. Class time is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 18 at the Cedar City Senior Center, 489 E. 200 South. There will be a Car-Fit event after the Driver Safety Class. The Car-Fit assessment has been designed to give a

quick, but comprehensive check of how well you and your vehicle work together to drive safely. The event will also help older drivers adapt to factors that affect their driving and to make changes to their vehicle to make it “fit” better.

Artisans offer kids' classes CEDAR CITY – Artisans Art Gallery is excited to announce that they will be offering a series of art classes for grade school and middle school age artists. The first session of the “Young Artist Art Classes” will be once a week, for four weeks each Wednesday, beginning March 23. The second four-week session will begin April 27.

We hope that the students will not just learn and have fun, but also be inspired by the talented artists here at the gallery.” Melissa Sullivan, Artisans gallery director, is looking forward to bringing students into the gallery as well. “People have been asking if we would start teaching classes since we first opened the gallery,” she says. “Now, in our new location, we finally have the space to do so. In addition to the kids’ classes, we are also in the process of putting together adult art classes, as well. I think it’s going to work out great for everyone.” Artisans Art Gallery is at 94 W.

Wood said he believed it would give a realistic picture. “(A) Buxton study will tell you what you can support,” he said. Dave Tanner, of SUU, also presented on behalf of the committee. He said having a Buxton study would be valuable in helping identify businesses that could excel. Once those types of businesses are identified the city could try to recruit them into available properties. Tanner also spoke about streetscape, and said the extensive improvements that have been made downtown since 1996 need to be expanded along Center Street to Southern Utah University and the Utah Shakespeare Festival. An extension of the landscaping and lighting would help increase the flow of pedestrian traffic between SUU and the USF and Downtown Main Street. The committee has also dis-

Wood said the committee has identified Phase 1 of the downtown project to be the Buxton study, a master plan to identify any needed zone changes, building incentive programs and agreements, and developing a concert series. While the RDA seemed to be supportive of the Buxton study,

they seemed reluctant to fund a master plan. Councilor and RDA Member John Westwood said he wants to make sure the committee is looking at the city’s general plan, which includes a strategic area plan. He doesn’t want to pay for something that just duplicates what the city already has, he said. Wood said the general plan allows things downtown that HyettPalma does not recommend.

Councilor and RDA Secretary Georgia Beth Thompson said she is cautious on some of the recommendations for Phase 1, but she does like the idea of the Buxton study.

Connie Simkins, a Panaca resident and secretary of the area’s grazing board, said they have concerns about specific plants and areas, but support the idea of solar energy. “We are definitely in favor of renewable energy, but we strongly

feel that it needs to be site specific and technology specific,” she said. Gerald Whipple, of Solar Unlimited in Cedar City, spoke in support of the idea of solar energy development on BLM lands. “We have a great region for photovoltaic and renewable energy here,” he said. He added that he hopes they will use the appropriate technologies for the reason to make as little of an impact as possible.

Jane Summerson of the U.S. Department of Energy and Linda Resseguie of the BLM said they were pleased by the attendance at the meetings, which were offered in areas that would potentially be affected. Some of the comments they received gave them a new take on the subject and they had received a lot of useful input.

Cedar Reds find victory over Uintah BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor

SIOBHAN SHERWIN

Cedar beat Uinta Thursday 4-1 at home after losing to Desert Hills 0-1 on Wednesday. The team is using a defensive heavy 4-3-3 strategy and coach Scott Kamachi said they are still working a few things out.

Cedar soccer coach Scott Kamachi has shaken things up a bit with his team, going for a defensiveheavy 4-3-3 strategy, and things are looking optimistic for the team. After a razor-thin loss to Desert Hills on Wednesday, they secured a decisive victory over Uintah on Thursday. “The last couple of games have been kind of frustrating for us,” Kamachi said after the victory. “We are still working things out and we're going to see some missed passes along the outside, but 4-1. We're not going to complain. It's good to get a win and get positive motion going.” Against Desert Hills, it was Kyle Kinman who scored the only goal while Gustavo Morales grabbed the shutout against the Redmen. Things picked up for Cedar on Thursday as they hosted Uintah. Though the game was non-region, it proved that Cedar's method does work. Cedar's Justin Jones earned the first goal after dodging Uintah's defenders and hitting the long shot for the 1-0 lead. The strong 4-3-3 defense kept

the ball far away from Cedar goalkeeper Alan Payne. “Alan's a good keeper and we feel comfortable with him back there,” Kamachi said. “That's the reason we can do the 4-3-3 is because we know Alan's back there to support us. He can get behind those shots and help us out quite a bit.” At the 33-minute mark, Jones did a repeat performance, netting a second goal. “I'm a midfielder and it's not normally my job,” Jones said. “But I made it through and went in.” Uintah stutter-stepped and got a shot past Payne with one minute left in the half bringing the score to 2-1 as the siren sounded. In the second half, Payne was able to work with his team's heavy central defense, which forced Uintah to take sloppy outside shots that Payne easily stopped. Mitchell Hansen broke free at the 56 minute mark for a goal and teammate Ryan Kern pushed one through a mere three minutes later bringing the final score with Cedar in a 4-1 advantage. Cedar improved to 1-2 overall (0-2 in region). The results of Tuesday’s matchup between Cedar and Canyon View were not available at press time.

Levins tops SUU 5K record SUU takes first league series After a first-place finish in the 5,000meter run at the Oxy Distance Carnival, Cameron Levins has set a new Southern Utah record of 13:49.82. Levins’ time shaved almost eight seconds off the first-place record he set the previous weekend at the UNLV Invitational. Many other T-Birds also found success last weekend as the team split up for the Oxy Distance Carnival in Los Angeles, Calif. and the Northridge Invitational in Northridge, Calif. “We saw a great performance from Cam this weekend,” coach Eric Houle said. “I think it will be remembered for years to come.” Eric Sandall also finished well for the men in Los Angeles, taking sixth place in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:55.35. The women were led by Kirsten Bradford, whose third-place finish and time of 4:37.67 in the 1,500-meter run ranks ninth for Southern Utah. Steffi Minson also took home a third-place finish with her time of 11:24.45 in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. The women in Northridge also performed well as Chelsey Allen took home a first place finish in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.15. Shaye Maurer led in the 100-meter hurdles, finishing second with a time of 14.04. She was closely followed by Jasmine Paicely, who finished in third place with a time of 14.49. Maurer, Paicely and Allenalso helped the women’s 4x100-meter relay team race to a second-place finish with a time of 47.75, along with teammate Christina Day. The 4x400-meter relay team took home a first-place finish with a time of 3:46.40. That team included Maurer, Allen, Day and Kylie Frandsen. The throwers were led by Kayla Kovar, who finished second in the discus throw, improving her fifth-place SUU rank with a mark of 154-06.Adrienne Hill followed closely with a third-place finish and a mark of 149-07. Amber Madril also found success as she placed third in the javelin with a mark of 129-04. The men’s team was led in Northridge by hurdler Kodai Kusano, who took home a first-place finish in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.77. Kusano also earned a fifth-place finish in the 400-

meter hurdles with a time of 53.84. Cody Olsen led the throwers with a first-place finish in the javelin for the second week in a row with a mark of 207-05. Tyler Anderson also had another successful meet as he finished sixth in the hammer throw with a mark of 170-06. Anderson’s mark ranks sixth in Southern Utah’s top 10. “It was an awesome weekend for us,” Houle said. “We had an ideal track, ideal competition and ideal weather and it resulted in some great performances in both locations.” The Thunderbirds will take a twoweek break from competition before traveling to Palo Alto, Calif. for the Stanford Invitational and Tempe, Ariz. for the Arizona State Invitational. Both meets will take place Mar. 26-27. Press release submitted by SUU Athletics.

A Lady T-Bird slides into home plate last Friday during a game against IPFW. BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor

SUU ATHLETICS

SUU’s Cameron Levins runs at UNLV a few weeks ago.

It was a busy week for the Southern Utah softball team, but the end result was a victory in their first Summit League series. Things started out rough, however. Last week's snow storm moved the home-opener series against Utah to Dixie where the T-Birds faced a double defeat, losing 3-5 and 1-10. As the snow melted and things warmed up, so too did SUU’s team. On Friday they hosted IPFW for the first Summit League games of the season. The first game of the series saw SUU take a 2-point lead in the fifth inning when junior Haylee Hoch hit a single to the Mastodons’ pitcher that pushed two home. IPFW got

two in on the next inning, but Southern Utah answered with sophomore Nicole Huntsman and freshman Cora Cordova each earning an RBI to bring the score to 4-2. IPFW managed a double that brought in a single runner in the seventh, but it wasn't good enough and SUU walked away with the 4-3 win. The second game in the series saw the Mastodons push through 9 runs in the first inning. Southern Utah saw seniors Aly Daniels and Darleen Fernandez, as well as freshman Madison Resley each knock the ball out of the park for three home runs, but that was all the T-Birds managed in the game. Five points in the second for IPFW finalized the score, leaving Southern Utah behind 3-14. Fernandez led off Saturday's

game with a two-run double in the first and earned a third run the next inning, being hit in by Haylee Hoch. Heather Black had the mound for SUU and kept IPFW without a hit until the fourth. Huntsman nailed a two-run home run in the sixth, bringing Southern Utah's score to 6, ending the scoring for both teams in SUU’s favor 6-2. Southern Utah improved to 7-15 overall and 2-1 in league play. For Black, it was the second pitching victory with 7 innings allowing 2 runs on 5 hits. SUU will be back in Summit League action this weekend. They host the Leathernecks of Western Illinois for a double header on Friday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. On Saturday, first pitch is scheduled at noon.

T-Bird gymnastics finishes second to Future of deer hunting focus Iowa on Senior Day of Wildlife Board discussion The Bulls were the seventh and eighth grade boys lower bracket champions for Cedar City’s Jr. Jazz program. The program has announced its champions and sportsmanship champions.

Southern Utah University honored its five departing seniors at the end of the meet, but the team finished behind Iowa on Saturday afternoon, falling to the Hawkeyes 196.450-195.400. The Thunderbirds did post a victory over Utah State as the Aggies finished the competition with a 193.150. SUU and Iowa began the meet in a deadlock after the first rotation, as both teams scored a 48.925 on vault and beam, respectively. The mark was the second highest team score on vault this season with seniors Shannon Coughlin and Lindsey Schultz leading the way for the T-Birds with matching 9.875’s. The duo finished second overall on the event. Southern Utah then moved to bars, hitting 6-of-6 with sophomores Alyssa Click and Michaela Chernoch finishing fourth on the event with 9.825’s. However, Iowa took the lead with the first of three team 49’s, scoring a 49.025 on floor. Following the second rotation Iowa led 97.950 to the Thunderbirds’ 97.750. SUU suffered a fall during its second routine on beam, but bounced back to hit 5-of-5 on the event with Click again leading the team with a 9.875. The score marked a new career-best and also garnered first-place honors for the

Vancouver, Wash. native. Senior Ari Lamb was close behind with a 9.825 as the Thunderbirds finished with a 48.650. Southern Utah rounded out the night with its first 49 of the competition, scoring a 49.000 on the floor exercise. Schultz, Coughlin and Click each finished in the top five, scoring a 9.850, 9.825 and 9.800, respectively. However, a final 49.175 by Iowa on bars left the T-Birds in second place with a 195.400. Despite the loss the score was the third highest for Southern Utah this season. Lamb tallied the top allaround score for the Thunderbirds with a 39.125 and was followed by Lauren Jeffrey with a career-best 38.750. Following the meet, Southern Utah’s five seniors – Jenna Vogt, Lindsey Schultz, Bailey Pendley, Ari Lamb and Shannon Coughlin – were each honored for their individual contributions to the gymnastics program over the course of their careers. SUU will be back in action this weekend, looking to defend its 2010 conference championship when the Thunderbirds take part in the Western Athletic Conference championships in San Jose, Calif.

The future of deer hunting in Utah is among the items members of the Utah Wildlife Board will discuss when they meet in a work session today in Washington. The board will not take action on any of the items it discusses today. However, the items the board discusses might be taken to the public

for comment and input at upcoming Regional Advisory Council meetings. The public is invited to attend the session and listen to the discussion, but public comment will not be taken at the meeting. Those who can’t attend the session can listen to a recording of it. The recording should be available

by Monday at www.wildlife.utah.gov/ dwr/board-minutes.html. Today’s meeting starts at 1 p.m. The session will be at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel, 2450 N. Towne Center Dr. in Washington. The meeting will include a mule deer management discussion and board meeting procedures discussion.

Help decide how wildlife is managed Your chance to help decide how Utah’s wildlife is managed is almost over. March 30 is the last day a group can nominate you to serve on one of Utah’s five wildlife Regional Advisory Councils. You can download a RAC nomination form at http://go.usa.gov/YuQ. Nomination forms are also available at any DWR office. RACs hold about 10 meetings a year to listen to proposals from the Division of Wildlife Resources about hunting, fishing and wildlife management in Utah. The RACs also take input from the public about the proposals. After voting on which proposals each RAC prefers, the chairperson for that RAC presents its recommendations to the Utah Wildlife Board.

Members of the board consider the input. Then the board makes the final decision regarding wildlife management in Utah. RAC meetings usually last from three to five hours. The meetings are in the evenings, usually on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. RAC members represent one of six interests: hunters, anglers and trappers; people who don’t hunt or fish; ranchers and farmers; locally-elected public officials; federal land managing agencies; and the public-at-large. To fill one of the upcoming vacancies, you must live in the region of the state you wish to represent. Also, no later than March 30, the following must happen: If you want to represent the public at large, you must contact a group in your community and ask them to

nominate you.  Examples of groups that have nominated people in the past include political groups, small town councils, animal sanctuary committees and recreational groups. If you want to fill one of the other five positions on the RAC, you must contact the proper conservation group or organization in your region and ask that they nominate you to fill the vacancy you’d like to fill. For example, if you want to fill a sportsmen vacancy, you must contact a Utah sportsmen group and ask them to nominate you for the vacancy. For more information, or to learn about wildlife or conservation groups in your area, contact the DWR office at 865-6100 or Staci Coons, the DWR’s Wildlife Board/RAC coordinator, at (801) 538-4718 or stacicoons@utah. gov.

ULM’s late inning rally beats T-Birds Scoreboard Southern Utah University had five players record multihit games, but the University of Louisiana – Monroe scored three runs in the eighth inning to take the series finale 8-6 Sunday afternoon. This loss represented a total series loss in Louisiana having lost Friday and both of Saturday's double headers as well. Junior shortstop Bo Cuthbertson led the Thunderbirds (5-8) with three hits and redshirt junior Justin Neuhart and redshirt sophomore Brock Westphal each hit their first home runs of the season. The Warhawks rallied from a 6-5 seventh inning deficit with the late runs to improve to 10-5 on the season. ULM took an early 1-0 lead with a bases-loaded walk in the first inning, but the Thunderbirds later tied things up on redshirt sophomore Taylor Shaw's RBI-groundout in the third inning. Southern Utah took its first lead of the afternoon with a run in the fourth inning. Westphal was hit by a pitch to start the inning and redshirt-freshman Taggart

An SUU player pitches in a home game earlier this season. The T-Birds are on the road until March 31. Lunceford followed with a single. Sophomore D.J. Andrade then walked to load the bases and Westphal then came across on the next play,

giving SUU a 2-1 lead. The Thunderbirds went on to add a pair of runs in the fifth on RBI-groundouts by Neuhart and Westphal to give

SUU a 4-1 advantage. The Warhawks countered with four runs in their half of the fifth, using five hits to knock out SUU starting pitcher Chase Rezac and take a 5-4 lead. Southern Utah answered right back with the long ball as Neuhart homered to left and Westphal followed with a big fly to left center, giving SUU a 6-5 lead. Louisiana-Monroe rallied with three runs off the SUU bullpen in the eighth, scoring a pair of runs on a two-run single after an error on a sacrifice bunt allowed ULM to load the bases. The Warhawks later capped the scoring with another RBI-single to build an 8-6 lead. The ULM bullpen went on to work around a leadoff single from Mitchell Kauweloa and post a scoreless ninth to hand the Thunderbirds an 8-6 defeat. The T-Birds played Grambling State in Louisiana on Tuesday, but results were unavailable at press time. They will face Utah Valley in Orem Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Melting ice means hot fishing If you like to catch trout from the shore, start paying attention to Utah’s fishing reports – some of the best shore fishing of the year is about to begin. Ice is starting to pull away from shorelines at various mid-elevation waters around the state. As the ice pulls away, the sun hits the shallow water near the shore. If it doesn’t get cloudy or windy, the sun can warm the water fast. As the water warms, trout and other cold water fish move into the shallow water in search of food.  And these fish are hungry – it’s been awhile since they’ve had a decent meal. “At many of the state’s waters, spring is the very best time to fish from the shore,” said Roger Wilson, cold water sport fisheries coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.  “It’s a great time to take your kids fishing. They can catch a bunch of fish using simple techniques.” If the sun comes out and the wind doesn’t blow much, fishing during “ice off” can stay fast and furious for one to two weeks. Then, after a couple of weeks, the ice recedes even farther from the shore. As the ice recedes, water in other parts of the reservoir or lake starts to warm up too. “When that happens, the trout start to disperse and move away from the shore,” Wilson said. Your ice-off fishing experience doesn’t need to last only a week or two, though – if you stay updated on which waters are starting to open, and you’re willing to travel a bit, you can extend your ice-off fishing experience into May. Wilson said lower and mid-elevation waters will open first, followed by waters at higher elevations. “Depending on which waters you’d like to fish,” he said, “ice off will start anywhere from mid March to mid May.”

Basic tackle and some warm clothes are all you need to catch fish from the shore in early spring. You can stay updated on where the ice is coming off a number of ways. Visiting fishing-related websites and chat lines is one of the best. The following provide good fishing information for Utah: www. wildlife.utah.gov/hotspots; www.bigfishtackle.com; www. utahwildlife.net; and www. utahonthefly.com. Stores that sell fishing tackle, such as Sportsman’s Warehouse and Fish Tech Outfitters, also provide excellent, up-to-date information. Stores located at various marinas around the state are also good information sources. “Also, pay attention to what the anglers around you are using,” Wilson said. “If they’re catching fish with a certain lure or bait, and you have that same lure or bait, put it on your line and start using it.”

Wilson said trout usually group together in schools and cruise the shoreline during ice-off.  For that reason, it’s important to be patient. “You have to be patient in the spring,” Wilson said. “You can sit for awhile with no action, and then – all of the sudden – it’s ‘pop, pop, pop’ as the trout move through the area and hit your bait or lure.” PowerBait, worms and nightcrawlers are excellent baits to use during ice off. Wilson recommends placing a large sinker on your line, a foot or two above your bait, and then casting your bait and letting it float just off the bottom of the water you’re fishing. If you decide to use a lure or a fly, try one that imitates a leech. Dark-colored tube jigs and grubs are excellent lures to try, while dark wooly buggers

are the ticket for fly anglers. Wilson suggests coating your bait or lure with Smelly Jelly or another type of scent. “This is especially important if you’re fishing a plastic lure,” he says.  “Even if a fish has already struck your lure, if the lure has some scent on it, there’s a good chance the fish will strike it again.” Wilson says casting your bait onto the ice, and then reeling it so it falls into the water next to the edge of the ice, is a good spot to fish your bait. The edge of the ice is also an excellent spot to place your lure before you start retrieving it. You can learn more about fishing at ice off by listening to an interview Wilson did for the DWR’s weekly radio show. The interview is available at www. wildlife.utah.gov/radio.

The Falcons are 3-1 after their first week of the season, including an important win over Delta. Brayden Nicholes got credited for two wins with Jason Holmes picking up a win against Del Sol.

K9 nonprofit to help dogs that help community

Film showing to open trails symposium

Ashley Langston

DEPUTY JEREMY HOLM poses with his new bloodhound Elvira. She has about four more months of training, but is doing very well. BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor IRON COUNTY – Police service dogs are continually utilized in Iron County to make law enforcement and the public safer, and the K9 program is about to get a boost with the formation of a nonprofit organization called Friends of Iron County K9s. Cedar City Police Officer and K9 Handler Jason Thomas said just last weekend there were two examples of the dogs’ value. With people running and hiding for police, the dogs were able to find and help apprehend them. “(K9s are) tools that do things that we as officers can’t do, and they do it in a lot safer way and it takes a lot of risk away from the officers that are involved,” he said. Thomas said it is impossible to put a price tag on what the dogs do for the officers and the community. Iron County Sheriff’s Deputy Quinn Averett, also a K9 handler, said dispatch pages K9 units to respond any time there is a dangerous inci-

dent. “We try to be involved in most serious incidents because the dog is one of the best tools we have to end situations without violence,” he said. “Most people … would rather get shot than bit by a dog.” Currently there are five K9 officers in Iron County, but that number will be increasing to six soon, as the Cedar City Police Department is adding another dog. Thomas said Clint Pollock has been chosen as the handler, and Voodoo, the department’s new 5 1/2-year-old German Shepherd, is currently living with Pollock. Though the dog is trained, Pollock is not yet. Thomas expects them to be a working pair by July, he said. The dog was donated to the Cedar City Police Department after the Salt Lake County Unified Police Department got a new handler. Thomas said they wanted to place a new dog with a new handler, and Cedar City was one of about six cities that applied to receive Voodoo. He thinks it is positive to have another dog in the department, and

it will just enhance what they do and benefit the area even more, he said. With the new dog’s addition, the Cedar City Police Department will have more than one K9 unit for the first time since probably the early 1990s, Thomas said. Voodoo is a very good tracker that is trained as a patrol and narcotics dog, and the CCPD’s emphasis will be on narcotics and tracking, he said. Another boost to the program is Thomas’ certification as a K9 instructor. He is the only instructor in the area, and he will be able to train Pollock and other officers and dogs. Dogs need to be re-certified each year, so that certification will save money on travel for Iron County K9 units. It will also help surrounding counties. Thomas will also soon be certified as a “judge,” and are allowed to administer tests to new handlers and certify new handlers and dogs. “We’ll be able to be more self sufficient in our area,” Thomas said. Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Ryan Bauer is also a judge in Iron County, he said.

Thomas is currently training his new dog, Jax. He was previously the handler for Gino, and was in the process of retiring him when Gino was hit by a car and killed Jan. 3. Jax was certified for narcotics in December, Thomas said, and he will finish patrol school the end of May. While Jax is young, at not quite 17 months old, he has had drug finds on the street and is performing. “He’s doing well,” Thomas said. As the Cedar City Police Department sees transitions in its K9 program, the Iron County Sheriff’s Office is also in the process of training a new bloodhound. It’s previous bloodhound, Aerial, passed away in November after her stomach became twisted, a common problem for bloodhounds, Iron County Sheriff Mark Gower said. Aerial’s handler, Deputy Jeremy Holm, said he had been working with her since April 2008. The ICSO received her, and the new dog, Elvira, from the Kody Snodgrass Memorial

CEDAR CITY – A public showing of “In Pursuit of a Dream,” a new educational documentary film showing life along the Oregon and California Trails in the 19th Century, will be at the SUU Theater in the Sharwan Smith Center next Wednesday at 7 p.m. The film was recently chosen as a finalist at the International Family Film Festival. Producer Candy Moulton of Boston Productions will be in Cedar City at the event, which is sponsored by the Oregon-California Trails Association. During the summer of 2008, 24 students left their homes in the city, exchanged their shorts and sandals for long dresses and pioneer pants, and set off on a two-week journey on the Oregon and California Trails, traveling by wagon train in Wyoming and Oregon. Living in tents, riding in mule and horse-drawn wagons, and cooking outside, the students were learning about history by recreating an experience that in the 1800s drew 400,000 people to take part in the westward migration. Like the 19th Century pioneers they were “In Pursuit of a Dream.” The once-in-a-lifetime journey challenged even the toughest in the group as they traded their modern conveniences for tents and bedrolls, loaded their wagons, and took off for adventure on the Oregon and California Trails. Along the way they met explorers, gold seekers, and natives. They learned about manifest destiny—the clarion call of the 19th century that drew people from their homes in the East to resettle in the West. They also learned about themselves See SYMPOSIUM | B5

SUU farm to give community gardening opportunity BY LISA BOSHELL Reporter CEDAR CITY – Southern Utah University’s farm will be offering residents the opportunity to grow their own gardens this spring and summer – an opportunity that may not be available to many community members otherwise. In the past, the SUU farm (380 S. Westview Drive) has offered up about 20 garden plots to students and faculty members, but has opened up their garden space this year to allow any community member to participate. Marguerite Smith, president of the Native Plant Society and garden coordinator, said the farm has expanded the garden to include 60 plots, all of which have already been filled. Smith said that they are

now taking names of interested parties on a waiting list, as there is a possibility that the garden will be further expanded to include even more plots. “There has been a lot of community interest,” Smith said. “There is no other place available like this (in the area).” Many people have moved from areas where community gardens were more widely available, Smith said, and so they have been looking for the chance to participate. The plots are 10 feet by 10 feet and for a $10 fee, all watering is taken care of by a drip system. Participants simply have to take care of planting, weeding and maintaining their plots. Items such as tomato cages are allowed as well, as long as they are removed at the end of the season, Smith said. Weed control around the

perimeter of the garden and on pathways will be taken care of by the Master Gardeners, who will also be available for gardening questions and information. The Master Gardeners are in the middle of a 14-week program that will finish up in April and part of the requirement for certification is to donate 40 hours of volunteer work, Candace Schaible, Master Gardener instructor, said. The Master Gardeners also run and maintain the Waterwise Demonstration Garden at the Iron County Visitors Center on Main Street and are currently teaching a free gardening class every Wednesday evening through the end of the month. Those interested in having their names placed on a waiting list for plots may call Smith at 867-5487 or e-mail her at nls400@msn.com.

SUU's FARM will provide gardening spots to residents this summer. All the plots are currently booked, but those interested may put their name on the waiting list.

Enoch has great SEP meetings Teachers at Enoch Elementary are so appreciative of the many parents who came to visit and discuss students last week. SEP meetings are an integral part of the school year. We believe that a strong team consisting of parents, teachers, and students is the key to classroom success. Open communication and proactive planning encourages academic success. Students at our school aim for the stars and showing off their accomplishments makes teachers so happy. Reading growth, math skills, and blossoming self-confidence abound at our school. Kindergarten registration was also last week. Welcoming eager new faces to the halls of our school is so exciting. Thank you for supporting the book fair this year. Watching young students load up on new books is a promising sight to see. Excitement and zest for reading is a thrill that can’t be matched. Our students love the adventures that reading can bring. Keep reading, Enoch Tigers!

Escalante Valley raising marquee money March 28 Escalante Valley School PTA has been working hard to raise enough money for a school marquee. They hope everyone will support our McDonald’s fundraiser. Join us for dinner at McDonalds on March 28 between 6 and 8 p.m. Be sure to come inside and say “hi” to our workers! The fourth grade also encourages everyone to visit the school and take a look at the beautiful “Utah History” quilt they created. Raffle tickets for the quilt are available

Foundation at new cost. Holm said Aerial was a real asset to the area, finding several people in and around Iron County in her 2 1/2 years here. On her first catch, she trailed a suspect a mile and a half through the desert of Lincoln County, Nev., and found him hiding under a cedar tree, wearing camouflage and hiding from the airplane that was helping in the search. Elvira is expected to be just as valuable an asset. She has about four more months of training, but is already ahead of the training schedule and has been successful in tracking a suspect. She is responding to training well and is very eager to work, Holm said. Holm and Elvira have bonded very quickly. She is currently about nine months old, he said. Averett said Iron County Sheriff’s Corporal Jeff Malcolm and Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Cole Douglas also have K9s. Averett said the nonprofit, Friends of Iron County K9s, is currently in the beginning stages, but they hope to have a board of directors meeting soon and finalize details on how community members can donate and help. “The dogs are such a huge asset to us and we’re really struggling with the economy,”

in the office. Proceeds from the quilt are also earmarked for the marquee.

Fiddlers getting new PTA Board Fiddlers Canyon Elementary is excited to announce our new PTA Board members. They are as follows: Jillynne Fullmer, President; Amy Rigby, President-elect; Tonia Ashdown, Secretary; and Mackenzie Stratton, Treasurer. Fiddlers’ PTA is second to none and it’s because of the quality parents that work so hard to help our students. Thank you to the outgoing board, as well:  Kristen Warden, President; Jillynne Fullmer, President-elect; Tonia Ashdown, Secretary; and Tammy Hulet, Treasurer. They have done a wonderful job and have truly helped our school excel!

Iron Springs has great Arts Night Arts Night at Iron Springs was a great success! On March 2 over 400 family members gathered to appreciate and applaud the talents of our students. First, the third graders sang two songs, directed by our music specialist Becky Warmington. Next, the fifth graders sang two patriotic songs. Finally, students and families were free to browse through the art portfolios of over 500 students. On Feb. 22, ABC4 TV weatherman Joe Chevalier visited the second grade classes.  It was interesting to have him explain what makes different kinds of weather and answer the students’ questions. Iron Springs Elementary Community Council meeting will be Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the Library. The community is

he said. Funds raised by the nonprofit will help train, maintain, feed, and provide medical care and equipment for the dogs in Iron County. They will first benefit the Cedar City Police Department and Iron County Sheriff’s Office dogs, he said, but will also be used for other agencies with a need. The board of directors includes Thomas, Gower, and himself, Averett said. The nonprofit is independent from the sheriff’s office or police department, he added. Thomas added that the nonprofit will also help fund the food and medical care of retired dogs in the area. Most retired dogs live the rest of their lives with their handler and his or her family, but costs can become burdensome. “They’ve had a hard working life,”Thomas said, and retired K9s do have medical expenses because of their work. The nonprofit will also help with training expenses, Thomas hopes. Training has to be continuous, with constant reinforcement. There are always new ideas and K9 training is always evolving, so having more funding will help local law enforcement keep up with the K9 community. Thomas also said he hopes they will be able to use the nonprofit to educate people about the K9 program in Iron County. “Both agencies have a big desire to put these dogs in the community,” he said.

North Arts Night, Spelling Bee are coming up soon Dr. Seuss Day was a smashing success! A special thanks goes out to Mrs. Patty Johnson and her students from CMS who shared their version of “The Cat in the Hat” with us. We appreciate the supportive parents who attended SEP Conferences last week. Our wonderful PTA is planning a special meeting to discuss the emergency procedures at North Elementary. It was previously announced for Thursday, but that meeting has been changed to April 14 in the North Elementary gym. Friday is our annual Science Fair. Come and see what our Polar Bear scientists can do. We also have Arts Night on March 30 and the Spelling Bee on March 31 for first, second, and third grades, and April 1 for the fourth and fifth grade students. Thursday is Kindergarten Registration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the gymnasium.

Parowan plans school’s 50th birthday party Parowan Elementary School will celebrate its 50th birthday on April 6. In conjunction with this celebration, the students and staff are attempting to read 500,000 minutes or 10,000 minutes for every year that Parowan Elementary has

been a school. With five weeks left to read, the students and staff are already more than halfway to their goal. If the goal is met the school will hold a birthday celebration, which will include special guests that have worked at Parowan Elementary School, a slide presentation of people who attended the school in 1961, birthday balloons, “Happy Birthday” T-shirts, birthday cake and more. The students and staff are reading frantically and looking forward to this exciting event.

South students to perform play Our students are getting ready to show off their performing talents! They have been rehearsing with our choir director and music teacher, Mrs. Leavitt, to perfect the play they have been working on, “School House Rock.” Students will perform the play for the rest of the school on Friday in the afternoon, and again for family and friends later that evening at 6:30 in the gym. All are welcome to attend! It’ll be a great show. Also, for those with children who will be entering Kindergarten next year, registration will be in the gym today from noon to 3:30 p.m. Bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate, immunization record, and social security card. Your child must be 5 on or before Sept. 1, 2011, to enroll in Kindergarten for the coming school year.

Three Peaks has fun Parent Night The March Marvin and Jesse Character Education assembly was this week. The topic was “Hard Work.” We

appreciate school counselor Connie Wallace assisting with this activity each month. Parent Night was March 9. Students were invited to attend with their parents. The focus was on reading activities drawn from books written by Dr. Seuss. Matt Nickerson, a favorite Southern Utah storyteller, did a wonderful rendition of a Dr. Seuss tale and sang silly songs with the families. SEP conferences were last week. The staff at Three Peaks would like to thank all parents for  your wonderful support with your children and attending these important meetings. The attendance was outstanding. Three Peaks has recently signed contracts with Johnson Controls to install a new solar system on the roof of the school. Mr. Tim Taylor and the teachers will be receiving training on science activities that will include solar in the curriculum.

CVMS students going to region science fair Congratulations to our Orchestra II members who recently received a “Superior” rating at the Southern Utah Performing Arts Festival in St. George.

and how the decisions they made could have serious and unexpected consequences for their group. Some made it, others did not. This special showing will include an introduction by the producer and information on how it can be used in the classroom and the materials that will be available for teachers. Students will be admitted without charge; adults are $5 per person. The showing of the film will be the first event of the Oregon-California Trails Symposium that will run through March 27. The public symposium will be on the campus of Southern Utah University. The symposium differs from OCTA’s annual conference by focusing on a specific trail of the West. According to Travis Boley, executive secretary, the focus at this meeting is the Southern Wagon Trail from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles. Symposium sessions begin on Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. in the Gerald R. Sherratt Library and continue on Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. in the Sharwan Smith Theater. Topics include the Howard R. Driggs Collection of

students competing in the fair. Our sixth grade students are preparing for the upcoming Career Carnival on March 28. This is an exciting opportunity for students to view a wide range of job opportunities. We remind parents of sixth grade students to get their student’s immunizations up to date and present proof to the school before the first day of school next year. There will be a special clinic at Southwest Utah Health Department on March 22 from 4 to 7 p.m. just for incoming seventh graders. Third term ends Friday.

CMS kids put on musical shows Cedar Middle School’s Community Council Meeting is today at 3 p.m. in the Faculty Room. The three Cedar Middle School Orchestras did a fantastic job at their concert on March 2. They played a wide variety of Pops music including “The Macarena,” “Wipe Out,” “Music of the Night” from “Phantom of the Opera,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Theme from the Simpsons,” “Jurassic Park,” “Themes from the Lion King,” “Jump Jive and Wail,” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.” It was exciting to see all three orchestras combine to play a blues piece called “Boogie Man Blues.” The orchestra students at Cedar Middle School have clearly worked hard and have been improving every concert.  This was their best concert yet.  Congratulations to all of the hard working orchestra students! Congratulations also to our CMS bands for their wonderful Pops concerts.  All enjoyed their up-beat, catchy music.  We hope parents of next year’s sixth graders will see the value of enrolling their child in our band program.  If you did not already enroll in band, it is not too late to make the change. Band rocks!
