New fields to open

Council hires city manager BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor

Ashley Langston

the fields at the Hills will be dedicated Saturday and workers are putting the finishing touches on the "tot lot" and some areas around the fields.

BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – Construction is wrapping up on the Fields at the Hills, just west of the Aquatic Center, and the facility will open this weekend with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. and games throughout the day. Games begin at 10 a.m. and the day’s line-up includes the MLB Hit, Pitch & Run competition, girls’ softball, boys’ baseball and adult leagues. The MLB contest is a free competition sponsored by Leisure Services that provides boys

and girls, ages 7 to 14, a chance to show off their skills. Each participant will be given points based in their performance in each area and those with the highest scores will advance to the sectional competition. To get involved, call Leisure Services at 865-9223. Ron Chandler, city manager, said the fields were built to accommodate the growing needs of the community and to bring in outside tournaments. The Little League, softball and adult programs have all been growing locally and the complex by the Rotary Centennial Veterans Park as well as the fields at Bicenten-

nial Park will continue to be used. The four new fields, two of which are lighted, will allow more flexibility. Cedar City Events Coordinator Byron Linford said there are eight regional youth baseball or softball tournaments scheduled so far and many have multiple age classifications. “The largest tournament will include approximately 128 teams or nearly 2,000 participants,” he said. The addition of the four fields makes the city, for the first time, truly competitive in attracting large tournaments that previously Cedar City would have

been unable to accommodate, he added. In addition to the four ball fields, the complex includes a central concessions building with restrooms that’s second floor provides a perfect view of all four fields. There are two pavilions and a “tot lot,” or small playground for younger children, Chandler said. The tot lot is the result of the city’s partnership with a local family for an Eagle Scout project and the equipment was being installed Monday and Tuesday. Work on the fields began See FIELDS | A12

ENOCH – Robert Dotson was chosen as the new city manager with a unanimous vote by the city council last Wednesday. Dotson was a city councilor, but declared a conflict of interest and abstained from the city manager vote. After he was voted in, he resigned as a city councilor. He asked for two weeks before beginning the job so he could give notice to his current employer. C o u n c i l o r ROBERT DOTSON Celesta Lyman said the city was looking for someone very community minded, honest, personable and loyal. Councilor Gary Wilcken said there were 21 applicants from as far away as Texas. They narrowed the pool to three applicants and interviewed each of them. Before beginning interviews, they identified what they were looking for in a city manager, he said. Wilcken said he and the other councilors know Dotson cares about the community and is a good person with a good heart. Lyman added that Dotson is very knowledgeable, and, as a city councilor, has studied the issues and learned everything he can. See CITY MANAGER | A12

Paiute tribe upset about plans for hill BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor SOUTHERN UTAH – The Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah is upset that the Washington County Water Conservancy District plans to use rock from a hill in Toquerville for reservoir construction, because the tribe believes its ancestors are buried in the rock of that hill. Gaylord Robb, PITU Trust Administrator, said the hill, near Anderson Junction in Toquerville, is the resting place of Chief Toquer, who lived during the time members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints settled the area. There are also Mormon pioneers buried at the bottom of the slope and culturally sensitive artifacts and petroglyphs at the base of

the hill. Robb said some of the bands would traditionally put bodies in cracks of boulder fields, especially when the boulder fields were lava rock, and they would cover the bodies with smaller rocks, which the tribe believes was to keep the bodies from being dug up by animals. The tribe lived at the base of that hill for hundreds of years and there could be many graves on the hill, he said. They don’t know how many graves there are or the exact locations, he added. The WCWCD did not know about the Native American significance when the property was purchased earlier this year, District Assistant General Manager Barbara Hjelle said. They have had an archeologist survey

the site and are not aware of anything of archeological significance in the areas they plan to remove rock from, she said. The district does not plan to take any rock off the side or base of the hill, See PITU | A12

A boulder at the base of the hill near Anderson Junction is covered in petroglyphs that Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah Trust Administrator Gaylord Robb said tell the history of the people who lived there for hundreds of years. The tribe does not want the Washington County Water Conservancy District, which owns the property, to remove rocks from the hill for reservoir construction.

Center works to create global experience Walk to aid Volunteer Center of IC CEDAR CITY – SUU’s Sargon Heinrich Global Engagement Center had its first academic conference last Thursday and paired the event with a “ribbon tying” to celebrate the center’s efforts to make connections and link people together. Kurt Harris, the center’s director, said rather than the traditional ribbon cutting to symbolize the opening of the center, they wanted to stress that the center is about bringing people together across cultural lines. Sargon Heinrich, who made significant contributions to make the center possible, was in attendance and tied two ribbons together. One ribbon was red, white and blue to represent the United States and the other was red, black and green, which are the colors of the Afghanistan flag. The conference that took place that afternoon was entitled Afghanistan & America: Complex Connections. According to a bio on Heinrich in the conference program, he is the founder and CEO of ACCL International, a company based in Dubai that’s motto is “Afghans Building Afghanistan.” The company is the fifth-largest employer in the country, employing more than 4,000 people. “Opportunities he provides directly support over 12,000 men, women and children,” the program reported. Harris said Heinrich has been very generous with his resources, but most importantly he serves as a good role model for students. “It’s an honor to be working in a center that has his name on it,” he said. Harris said Heinrich is a humble man who is enjoyable to be around, and he has had many amazing experiences. He has been shot by the Taliban and survived a night in a jail where everyone was out to kill him. Harris said the Office of International Outreach developed into the Global Engagement Center last summer. The director of that center retired at about the same time, and Harris was named the interim director. He recently received the title of director. The standard study abroad

The ceremony was part of the dedication of the center. program, which sends students to various countries for a semester or the summer, is the foundation of the center, but they are looking for opportunities beyond that program. They are looking for internships for students in other countries, and are trying to expose students on campus to varied ideas and cultures. “We’re trying to internationalize the campus,” Harris said. The center’s mission is “to foster empathy, cultural understanding, experiential learning, and personal enrichment at SUU by providing students, faculty and staff with the resources and guidance necessary to enhance their learning and research in safe, intellectually stimulating programs in a variety of locations worldwide,” the conference program reported. Previously, international experiences have been primarily clustered among students of just a few majors, and they want to create more oppor-

tunities for students in all areas of study. The world is much more international now than in the past and students will not just be competing for jobs against other people from the United States, but against people from all over the world, Harris said. In fact, he said, five SUU English students who will graduate in May have teaching jobs lined up in Korea. On April 5, just before the conference, he returned from Spain, where he spoke with representatives at a university who want “language assistants,” or people to help students learn English. SUU Provost Brad Cook, who attended grade school with Heinrich and later worked with him in Kuwait putting out oil well fires, said the center is tangible evidence of SUU’s progress toward providing experiential education. They want to engage people, and students will be required to choose one of five areas of experiential learning, he said.

Cook said he believes this added value is something students need in their education. A degree is just a starting point, and employers are looking for some type of experience. The Sargon Heinrich Global Engagement Center is the first of five experiential learning centers, he said. Harris said the conference last Thursday went well, with good attendance. It included a keynote address by Former Deputy Ambassador of Afghanistan M. Ashraf Haidari and three sessions during which numerous presentations were given and a panel discussion took place. Harris said he does not know yet what the topic of next year’s conference will be, but Heinrich is very concerned with post-conflict areas of the world and will certainly have significant input on putting together the conference.

CEDAR CITY – The non-profit volunteer service agency the Volunteer Center of Iron County invites community members to participate in its inaugural “Walk in the Park” event on Saturday 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 by calling 867-8384 or registering at the event at 8:30 a.m. The minimum registration amount for participation is $10. The 3K walk will begin at 9 a.m. from Coal Creek trail in West Canyon Park and continue up Cedar Canyon and back. Each participant will be given a goodie bag.

The Volunteer Center of Iron County has played matchmaker to hundreds of non-profit 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, Garfield), the Volunteer Center has over 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.

Relay for Life to help fight cancer

Ashley Langston

participants walk in last year's Relay for Life at the Eccles Coliseum. This year's Relay begins this Friday evening and runs all night and into the morning. BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – The 2011 Iron County Relay for Life is planned for Friday and Saturday at Eccles Coliseum where community members will gather to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those who have passed on and fight back against the disease. Heather Roundy, event chair, said the survivor reception will start at 5:30 p.m., the opening ceremony will be at 6 p.m., and the survivor lap – the first lap of the night – will be at 6:30 p.m. The survivor lap will be led by the Scarlet & Black Bagpipe Band. The luminaria ceremony

is a touching event in which lit bags are placed around the track with names written on them – honoring cancer survivors or remember those who have passed on. Roundy said it will take place after dark, most likely between 9 and 9:30 p.m. There will be a lot of fun activities as well, including Relay Idol, and games like Deal or No Deal. “We’re going to have lots of cool things going on all night long,” Roundy said. The band Full Throttle will perform Friday evening and Marijeane Burgess will sing the National Anthem. A lot of teams will be selling items to raise money and all proceeds will go to

the American Cancer Society. Everyone is invited to come get involved, especially Friday evening. Roundy said anyone who is not yet signed up and would like to participate can do so online at www.ironrelayforlife. com or at the event. There will be a registration desk there where people can sign up to walk as part of a team or purchase luminarias. The website will also allow people to donate toward a particular team and purchase luminarias, she said. Anyone who does not want to go online or is unable to, but would like to sign up before the event, may call Roundy at 531-7493, she said.

to t he E d i to r Care and Share example of good organization To the Editor: One of the greatest things about our society is that there are so many people who are willing to reach out and help others in need. The local Care and Share is just one example of many places where people can go to get the help they need to “get back on their feet,” as the article (in the March 30 issue about the new emergency shelter) put it.

There are so many people in this city that are doing everything they can to provide for themselves and their families, they just don’t quite make enough. Organizations such as the Care and Share are there to help these people. I am proud of our city’s willingness to give back to their community. Shayla Hill Cedar City

Abortion bill concerning To the Editor: Many of us may know that the Utah legislature just closed up shop for the year and went out with a bang. After the closing, several of the controversial bills that were passed have made their way into the news and opinions have been given. It’s interesting to observe one bill, out of over 500 passed, in particular; House Bill 353. Now to understand the situation and what this bill is, let’s first look back to the health care reform pushed through by President Obama (aka Obamacare). The debate for health care reform brought an issue to light that has been constantly pushed under the rug for some time; abortion. Many states wanted to insure that federal health care wouldn’t pay for abortions, but 80 percent of private health insurance provided by employers already covered them. This is reflected in House Bill 354, which denies health care coverage to any woman who is electing to have an abortion. President Obama showed his support for no government funding of abortions when he issued an executive order three days after the health care reform was passed. This order stated that the government will not provide federally subsidized insurance for those women who go the abortion route. Also, most may be familiar with the supreme court case Roe vs. Wade that made a first trimester abortion a right to privacy for women under their first, third, fourth, and ninth amendment rights. However, the second and third trimesters were left to the states to make the decision. Many states since the health care reform have taken it upon themselves to chal-

lenge this ruling and have passed laws similar to House Bills 353 and 354 that our legislature just passed. These bills were passed in the final hours of the 2011 legislative session and in my opinion, will stir up some interesting reactions in the question of constitutionality. It entails that a professional health care provider has the right to refuse performing an abortion due to their moral and religious beliefs. Also, some are quoted to be worried about the health care professional that is being required to perform the procedure and what it takes away from them. However, this concerns me because what about those women who have to have an abortion due to a situation that could risk her health, incest, or rape? Are we so concerned about those who signed up for the health care profession that we are willing to let a mother at risk of losing her life die because they feel it’s not in their morals? This situation, in my eyes, puts a health care professional in a “catch 22” situation and will make them question whose life is more important; mother or fetus? Abortion has always been an issue that sparks huge debates between anti-abortion and pro-life groups. However, isn’t there always more than one answer to every situation that has different circumstances? We may not have that answer now or ever but why do we feel the need, as a society, to push our personal beliefs on one another? Stay tuned and I’m sure we will see a long, drug-out debate over these bills and if they go against the constitutionality of our country! Chancey Nicole Gardner Minersville

U.S. needs state-based health approach


ast month marked the one-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – Obamacare to the uninitiated – that the President signed into law on March 23, 2010. The ink was barely dry when the significant additional costs of the health care law became clear. First out of the gate was the impact of eliminating the tax break for the Part D premium assistance for businesses, which cost them over a billion dollars in losses. Next came the provision requiring businesses to report payments in excess of $600 for services or merchandise to the IRS on a 1099 form. Another provision requires individuals to receive a prescription from their doctors prior to purchasing overthe-counter allergy medication with their Flex Spending or Health Savings Accounts. You now have mothers calling pediatricians, so they can get prescriptions for infant Motrin and diaper-rash cream. And, of course, we can’t forget the mandates and regulations on what kind of health coverage individuals can buy. To pass the law, advocates inserted a host of new requirements from Washington, which will lead to even  higher premiums for families and small businesses. Implementing these new mandates has been chaotic,  with federal bureaucracies bypassing public comment on how the new rules will impact  American lives and

costly mandate that will force them to lower wages, freeze hiring and drop coverage, leaving workers with the option of purchasing insurance through the exchanges. But once Obamacare is completely dismantled — and I am confident that it will be — what will emerge in its place? We need to replace it with state-based approach that lowers health care costs and fixes our unsustainable entitlement programs. Step one will be relieving states of the massive fiscal burdens imposed by a relentlessly expanding Medicaid entitlement. A truly workable health care reform would be modeled on the bipartisan and highly successful welfare reform of the 1990s, which took ideas from the states — not just Washington — and gave them considerable flexibility to operate their own programs. There is an enormous reservoir of expertise and experience in the states. And any federal reform of the nation’s health care system should take advantage of this state-based wisdom. We face many challenges on health care, but ultimately I am hopeful. The fact is, our nation can’t continue on its current course.  Eventually something will have to give on both health care costs generally and Medicare and other  entitlements more specifically. We must start down the road of real reform sooner rather than later.

Charges filed for child rape BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor IRON COUNTY – Taylor David Warren, 18, of Parowan, was arrested last Wednesday on charges of rape of a child, object rape of a child, child kidnapping and tampering with a witness. The charges amount to three first-degree felonies and one third-degree felony. Warren was arrested after a 13-year-old girl came forward and said he had sexually assaulted her and locked her in his bedroom on Valentine’s Day, according to court documents.

He allegedly also text messaged the victim to try to keep her from contacting police. The arrest was made by Detective Michael Berg of the Enoch Police Department. He was asked by the Parowan Police Department to assist in the investigation, court documents reported. The girl was interviewed at the Children’s Justice Center. Warren had not been interviewed at the time the court documents were filed, because he had requested an attorney when contacted by law enforcement, the documents reported.


Capital Facilities Plan approved BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor ENOCH – The city council approved the Capital Facilities Plan last Wednesday about a year and a half after Horrocks Engineering was hired to create the plan. A draft of the plan was presented last fall and a public hearing took place in October. There was an open house in February, and the council spent the months of February and March working with Horrocks Engineering to make some

final adjustments and reading through the plan. Councilor Rob Dotson, who resigned later in the evening after being selected as the new city manager, explained what a CFP was to those present at the meeting. He said cities must have some kind of planning for future growth, and Capital Facilities Plans deal with infrastructure, such as roads, sewer, water, parks, public buildings, and more. The plan does not include impact fee recommendations and for the now the city will

continue using its current impact fees, he added. Mayor Bob Rasmussen thanked Horrocks representatives Bud Swensen and Dave Demas for all the hard work the company had put into the plan. He said although the process took a few months longer than expected, he felt good about the final product. Also at the meeting, the council opened the 2010-2011 budget so staff could begin making adjustments and the 2011-2012 budget so that work could begin on it.

Historical society to offer program CEDAR CITY – Dr. Ronald Smith of Plano, Texas, will present a public program on “Meanings of Utah’s Tabernacles” at the Iron County Historical Society meeting AT 7 p.m. Thursday at the Frontier Homestead State Park. His research is funded by an oral history grant from the Utah Humanities Council and Utah State History. Last summer Smith and

Dr. Simon Foss recorded oral histories with people from communities with tabernacles and then photographed those buildings in Kanab, St. George, Cedar City, Parowan, Richfield and Wayne County. They will continue their research in central Utah in the future. This part of the ICHS program is free and open to students and the community. Before Smith’s lecture, at 6

p.m., the annual ICHS Dutch Oven Dinner will take place. The dinner raises funds to publish the “Iron County Journal,” the society’s annual magazine, and other activities of the association. The journal is a benefit of membership in ICHS. Reservations were due Tuesday. Community members are always welcome at the park and at ICHS events.

Water class offered for landscapers CEDAR CITY – The Central Iron County Water Conservancy District is hosting a Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper workshop next Tuesday through April 22.

Eighth grade science teacher Emily Langston said the students were vary creative and came up with some great entries.

Harper and Midwest Kind dazzle crowd BY CARIN M. MILLER Reporter CEDAR CITY – Harper and Midwest Kind dazzled its audience April 5 at Mike’s Tavern with story-telling, blues and a unique musical twist that both surprised and engaged the crowd – a didgeridoo. “I don’t want it to be a gimmick,” founding member Peter Harper said. “What song I play it in has to compliment what I am writing about.” Harper said he only started playing didge a few years ago after a friend who played with the band for a while left. “It is really strange,” Harper said. “I don’t know how it all came about really. My personality is just about helping out people and I met a guy who needed a gig and thought ‘Well hey, let’s see how it will sound.’” After his friend was gone, Harper said he missed the sound and so rather than hire a new band member he decided to save a few bucks and learn to play it himself. He said it took a long time to master the circular breathing required to make a drone continuous, but once he did, it was worth the practice. “It took me a good six months,” Harper said. “When I finally got it, I was over the moon. I tend not to over play it because I don’t want it to get played out.” Tim Cretsinger, owner of Groovacious, said he has booked the act happily every time they have come through town. He said they performed at The Grind on their first visit and Groovacious for the last show, so this time he figured it would be nice to have them play at a venue where visitors could relax and have a couple of drinks. “They wanted to do it here (at Groovacious) again,” Cretsinger said. “But I thought it would be fun to do it somewhere different.” As the crowd loosened up, Harper shared onstage how much he loved visiting Utah. “It reminds me so much of home in Australia,” Harper said. “Tomorrow we will be visiting Zion for the first time and I can’t wait.” Cretsinger said part of what sets Harper apart from other artists is his ability to create an intimate relationship with the crowd while on stage. He said storytelling is a trait you come to expect from certain musicians but not so much from high energy, house thumping, get down and dirty blues. “When you’re watching a guy like that and you’re going ‘wow,’ then he is just talking to you like you are a part of what he’s doing; it makes you feel really special,” Cretsinger said. Local musician Steven Swift said watching Harper onstage was like watching John Popper

Cretsinger said they have tried to coordinate schedules to include Harper and Midwest Kind in the Groovefest line up for at least two years now but the schedules just haven’t allowed that to happen yet. “After the first time they played in Cedar we asked them,” Cretsinger said. “I don’t know about next year though because next year is the reunion.” Groovefest will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in June 2012, and Cretsinger said he was hoping to get some of the most asked-about performers back together to celebrate a decade of celebrating grassroots American music with a grassroots style. The 2011 Groovefest lineup is at www. Sample music and more information about Harper and Midwest Kind is available at www.

Exhibit unveils 20 years of rule-breaking artist’s work BY CARIN M. MILLER Reporter CEDAR CITY – Braun Books and RogUe Art Gallery came together Sunday to feature the artistic prowess of Kipp Howard, a self-taught artist whose bold style matches the unforgiving materials used to create them. Working mostly in pen or marker, anything from Sharpie to highlighters, Howard said an art professor in high school told him never to shade in pen. “My teacher said ‘Don’t shade in pen, it’s not professional, just don’t do it,’” Howard said. “That was the only recourse I had … I was a poor kid. What was I going to do?” He said those were the last art classes he took and since then his passion to create has been the sole driving force behind the emergence of each new piece. Howard said this is the first show he’s had focused on just his work. Sarah Braun, co-owner of Braun Books, said she has known Howard since he first moved to town eight years ago. She said he came into the store with some of his work and they have been friends ever since. “We have always been pushing him to show his art because we just think it’s good,” Braun said. “It’s definitely not like the classical art with all the proper little rules. I like that he breaks the rules for sure.” Howard said he’s always been a rule breaker and has always had a hard time

He said the idea of working a 9-to-5 job at a factory for most of his life only to wonder later about what he hadn’t done made him want to lose his mind. “I was talking to a guy the other day who was working at this same factory for like 13 years,” Howard said. “I was like ‘please God if that’s my destiny I don’t know what I’m going to do’ … and I’ve never been rich, I mean, I don’t know how to make money, but if it means going to a factory for the rest of my life I’m doomed.” Deborah Johnson, exhibition designer,

said RogUe Art Gallery founder Cooper Fossat called her in two days before the show to help unveil Howard’s work to the public. She said it was exciting to expose the work of a closet artist who had been stacking work for almost 20 years, especially when it is provocative and evokes an emotional response from its viewer. Johnson said she felt like the night was an overwhelming success considering two pieces sold. “I think it’s very encouraging,” Johnson said. “It’s pretty rare, I don’t know of any RogUe exhibitions where art has sold.”

Familiar musician joins Muddy Boots BY CARIN M. MILLER Reporter CEDAR CITY – As if teaching full time at SUU and raising a daughter weren’t enough work, the Muddy Boots Band’s newest band member, Marsha Bloom, lets her hair down at night and rocks the bass onstage for the public. “Other than juggling two other jobs and raising my daughter around it, I don’t think it has complicated my life,” Marsha said. Marsha, who together with ex-husband Alan Garber entertained the masses as Too Much Fun for years, said she feels as though the music they shared helped to keep things going in their relationship longer than they may have otherwise. “There is no question it was the glue that held my relationship together,” Marsha said. “But they were great years and it was a very good band. I miss playing with Alan and the others, a lot.” Marsha said her love of music began when she was a small child. She said her father exposed her to a variety of musical genres, and living in Southern California during the

late ’50s and onset of the ’60s acculturated her musical interests further. “(It) allowed exposure to everything from Surf and Motown to the Beatles and The Doors,” Marsha said. “Steve Miller played at my high school.” Marsha said she was a late bloomer and didn’t even pick up a bass until the ripe age of 36. She said she hasn’t had much time to learn other instruments, although she does own a lap steel, harmonica, guitar, keyboard and tiny little accordion, which she is “largely forbidden from breaking out.” She said she also plays the finger cymbals. “I was belly dancing when I began playing bass,” Marsha said. “I pretty much gave it up as I gave in to the heartbeat of the bass.” Since the bass bug bit her all those years ago, Marsha said she has played in 19 states, and hauled her bass everywhere from big name clubs and biker bars, to generator fed locations in the middle of nowhere –and even busked a time or two on a street corner. “I have played at the Paris in Las Vegas, (and other) large

venues throughout the northwest and southwest and all the way to Tennessee,” Marsha said. “I have (even) packed gear into lagoons, beaches and back country. “Each is memorable,” she added. “Oddly, perhaps some of my favorite gigs are right here in Southern Utah.” Dan Bass, lead guitarist for Muddy Boots, said the band heard Marsha was available just after their bassist informed them he just couldn’t keep up with the rigorous performance schedules anymore. He said there was no question in anyone’s mind what the next step would be, and though they had other offers from musicians looking to get in on the action, adding Marsha to the band is something they have never regretted. “She brings so much it’s unreal,” Bass said. “She is just absolutely wonderful; not only does she have a great attitude, but her musical skills are incredible, and she has given us a lot of versatility as far as using her vocals. “Her musical range has opened up all kinds of possibilities for the band,” he added. Bass said having a female

musician, especially one with such an impressive repertoire, in the band has almost doubled their song list. He said, when they randomly throw out songs on stage that they have yet to practice as a group, Marsha never skips a beat. “In the last 20 years of Muddy Boots it’s been the best combination ever,” Bass said. “We have even done some acoustic stuff with harmonies.” In keeping with her motto, “Chance follows action,” which Marsha says she found in a fortune cookie at the local Chinese buffet, she said she took a chance and happily jumped in when the band asked her to. “I am lucky and extremely grateful that they got together and agreed to give me a shot,” Marsha said. Though coordinating practice is difficult with all of her diverse jobs, teaching psychology at the university and rotating seasonally between ski instruction and horsemanship, Marsha said she manages to squeeze in time for Muddy Boots; and a new bluegrass band she is exploring. Marsha can be seen performing with Muddy Boots Friday at Toadz.

SUU students present ‘Godspell’ CEDAR CITY – Inspired by a series of parables and based on the Gospel of Matthew, “Godspell” remains one of the theater’s most beloved musicals. Southern Utah University’s College of Performing and Visual Arts’ Department of Theatre Arts and Dance presents the popular show, which features music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (of “Wicked” fame) and book by John-Michael Tebelak. Performances begin on Thursday and continue Friday, Saturday, Monday, and April 21-23. The show is directed by T. Anthony Marotta. Performances are at SUU’s Auditorium Theatre and curtain time is 7:30 p.m. One of the biggest offBroadway and Broadway successes of all time, “Godspell” boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day by Day.” As the cast performs “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All For the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side,” the Bible’s parables come humanly and hearteningly to life. Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, “Godspell” is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love that continues to resonate for contemporary theatergoers and is an ideal entertainment for the entire family. In his vision for the production, Marotta outlines his concept as follows: “Modern society and its methods of communication can disconnect and isolate many. Everyone is searching for … something more. One remarkable man arrives, and through the

Asher swan

Joseph Spear (Judas) and Jayson LeBaron (Jesus) sing "All for the Best" in SUU's "Godspell." messages and stories of the Gospel of Matthew, and by living and teaching stewardship, he gives everyone a chance to experience what they are missing: A human connection. A community.” Marotta, who staged last year’s production of “Company,” is creating a colorful and energetic staging of this timeless musical. Collaborating with Marotta is music director Brad Carroll, who himself is the acclaimed composer of “Lend Me a Tenor the Musical,” which had its world premiere at the Utah Shakespeare Festival and has been performed internationally. The musical’s spirited movement is created by choreographer Emilie Moulton. The creative team includes scenic designer Brian Jude Beacom, costume designer Wendy Sanders, lighting designer Holly Pierce, sounder designer Morgan Coutts and make-up and hair designer Kristen Henley. Britannia Bahr Howe is assistant director and Elizabeth Haight serves as stage manager. Undertaking the role

of Jesus is Jayson LeBaron, whose previous SUU appearances include his hilarious turn as Hysterium in the theatre department’s production of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” Joseph Spear, who has appeared as Miles Glorious in “A Funny Thing Happened” and as Peter in “Company,” plays Judas. The ensemble features Karina Sue Bolton, Morgan Callaway, Tony Carter, Tatem Credille, Benjamin Harris, Lisa Hill, Taylor Holbrook, Brian Nelson, MacKenzie Pedersen, Wendy Penrod and McKay Tripp as John the Baptist. Be entertained and uplifted by experiencing the joys of “Godspell.” Ticket prices are $10 general admission, $8 SUU faculty and staff, $5 youth and free for SUU students with a valid I.D.

Continued from page A1 about a year ago and the fields are the final component of the recreation complex that includes the Lake at the Hills and the Aquatic Center. The city has more plans for the future, including landscaping east of the reservoir’s “beach” area, and another pavilion at the fields, but the major items are there and will all be open as of Saturday. After being closed for the winter, the lake opened for fishing a few weeks ago and parking is available in the Aquatic Center parking lot or in the dirt lot northwest of the reservoir, Chandler said. The city will soon begin working on a boat access road and additional reservoir parking soon. The reservoir is open to small, non-motorized boats. Chandler said things have been going well at the Aquatic Center, which opened in January. The new artwork has added a lot and everyone seems to be happy with it. “We’re real pleased with it,” he said. “We’re meeting our budget. People are enjoying it an awful lot.”

CITY MANAGER Continued from page A1

Dotson said when one lives in an area, if he or she is able to step out of his or herself, one learns to love the people around them and wants to give back. Councilor Rick Bonzo made the motion to approve Dotson as the new city manager and the other councilors supported that motion. The city has been without a manager since the council terminated the employment of City Manager J. Bryan Dial last June. Mayor Bob Rasmussen said the council will have to appoint a new member to serve the remainder of the year, filling Dotson’s position. Since he had almost three years left, there will be a two-year seat open in the November election in addition to the three four-year seats that were already available. The city will accept letters of interest from those who would like to serve on the council through April 27. Letters should be submitted to Treasurer Susan Lewis at the city office. The councilors said they would like to appoint someone who is interested in continuing to serve and will be running for election in November. A new councilor will be appointed at the May 4 council meeting.


Continued from page A1 as they purchased it with the intent to take rock from the top of the ridge. This will not disturb the petroglyphs, she said, and while the archeologists have not found any burial sites, they would avoid any they were aware of. “We do not want to disturb gravesites,” she said. “We can avoid that.” She added that they believe Chief Toquer’s grave is actually on the other side of the ridge, and not on their property, but are willing to work with the tribe if they have an idea of its location and can help them identify it. Robb said in addition to the burial sites the tribe believes are on the hill, the site has significant cultural significance as the tribe was living there in 1776 when Fathers Francisco Atanasio Dominguez and Silvestre Velez de Escalante traveled through. It is documented that Dominguez and Escalante were starving and came upon the Paiutes growing corn and melons at the base of the hill. The Paiutes shared their food with the party and they were able to continue their journey, he said. The tribe is not opposed to commercial development of the land at the base of the hill, but wants the petroglyphs and the hill to remain untouched, Robb said. “Even if the graves and the petroglyphs were left in place, to denude the remainder of the hillside would leave a scar forever visible and the sacred nature of the area destroyed,” Robb said in a press release. The tribe had a meeting with about 30 to 35 Native Americans and Toquerville residents last Wednesday at site. Robb said there was a lot of support for the tribe at the meeting, with people from the PITU and the Kaibab Indian Tribe in Arizona. He said he will also be working with the city of Toquerville, which has a hillside protection ordinance. Hjelle said the WCWCD is asking the tribe to work with them and help them identify any gravesites or anything else at the site with archeological significance, besides the petroglyphs, which they will be staying away from. The reservoir is planned to be built on the other side of the state highway, less than a mile from the hill. There is still quite a bit of preliminary work to be done and the reservoir is probably a few years out, she added.

Rams end losing streak in non-region triumph BY JOSH HUNTSMAN Sports Editor The Parowan Rams are going through some growing pains and haven't earned a regional win yet, but a tremendous effort last Thursday stopped a three-game losing streak. “We've had some close region games, but close isn't good enough,” coach Matt Labrum said. “We still need to learn how to win and how to bring it every time.” Last week started with one such tough loss against the Enterprise Wolves (3-0 in region). Colby Warren and Rhett Bassett each hit doubles as the Rams tied with the Wolves in the fifth inning at 5-5. Enterprise’s Jaden Reber won the day, however, with 5 doubles and a home run that helped propel the No. 1 ranked regional team to a 7-5 victory. On Thursday, the Parowan Rams faced their mascotbrothers, the South Sevier Rams, in a non-region bout. With frigid weather and gusts of up to 50 mph, the two teams battled the elements as much as each other. This point was brought home by Labrum's admonition at the top of the fourth inning when his team was down 5-2. “You get in there and get the job done, no matter what the weather is,” he said to his players. “Now let’s rally.” The call to rally was answered. With runners on first and second and one out, Basset knocked an RBI double down the first baseline to bring Parowan up to 3 runs and one more out.

The Rams made a huge effort last Thursday and beat South Sevier 16-8. The win came after a tough loss to Enterprise earlier in the week. South Sevier pitcher Austin Gleave then had three hit-bypitch walks, bringing in two runners to tie the score at 5-5. Caden Pickett then knocked a 3 RBI triple before the final out ended Parowan’s 2-out, 5-point rally to take the 8-5 lead. Labrum sees this surge as a result of his team members learning how to encourage each other. “I was happy today, we had some good chatter,” Labrum said. “It's easy to chatter when

you are ahead, but they need to learn to bring it even when we are behind.” Parowan sealed the deal in the bottom of the sixth as Jake Topham and Colby Warren each had RBI singles followed by 3 hit-by-pitch runs ending in a 16-8 victory for Parowan. While Parowan’s victory was decisive, it still highlighted several areas where the young team needs to improve in order to compete in region, specifically in defense. “We’re still trying to find

a real solid defense,” Labrum said. “We’re moving some guys around and seeing what will happen, but we need to find those players who will bring it every single time and right now we don't have that.” Even with defensive issues, Labrum believes his team will be able to make an impressive showing. “I'm very optimistic,” he said. “These kids work hard and do what is asked of them and we’re going to see the result of that come to pass.”

The largest youth soccer program in Southern Utah, AYSO, is in the midst of signing up participants and thanks to the phenomenal growth over the past few years, the need for volunteers is bigger than ever. There are also some changes this year to facilitate the popularity of the sport in this region. The first day of registration took place last Saturday in the recreation room at the Aquatic Center in Cedar City. There are two more registration days left – today from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., both at the Aquatic Center. Avoid lines by going online to, filling out your application, volunteering, printing forms and bringing them to the registration dates above to pay your fees, which are $45 for the first child and $40 for additional siblings. New this year to AYSO is Team Sponsorships. Team Sponsors are now being accepted with contributions of $125 to $275 for a variety of benefits, including thank youplaque with team picture, name/ logo on sleeve, shorts or both of team uniforms and even a team banner. Details and a contribution form may be obtained

online, at registration, or those interested may call the AYSO Hotline at 586-AYSO/2976. With the growth in the region, AYSO is in need of volunteers now more than ever. Coaches, assistant coaches, and board members are especially needed in order to facilitate the growing number of players in Iron County. As AYSO is a non-profit organization, the work of volunteers is the central basis of its success. Last year, Cedar City and the Rotary Club donated the Snack Shack concession stand to raise funds used to help finance AYSO. In its second year of operation, volunteers are needed to help run it. This year will also see a greater focus on the AYSO VIP program. This program allows kids with disabilities to participate as a full part of a team. As part of AYSO's philosophy of “Everyone Plays,” this program follows a policy of inclusion rather than isolation. Some VIP players will be paired up with a “buddy” if a disability would otherwise prevent full participation. For more information on volunteering, the VIP program, or for any other issue, check the AYSO website or call the AYSO Hotline at 586-AYSO/2976.

T-Birds take series in South Dakota with strong pitching Southern Utah University softball moved to 18-21 overall and 9-3 in Summit League play with a 2-1 victory over South Dakota State on Saturday afternoon. In Friday’s doubleheader, SUU scored early and often in game 1, notching an 11-3 victory, but couldn't repeat the performance in game 2, stranding 12 base runners and falling in a 2-1 decision. In game 1, Southern Utah jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead after scoring three runs in both the first and second innings. Heather Richardson put the first lights on the board in the opening frame by drawing a bases loaded walk and was followed by a two-run double by Madison Resley a batter later. In the second inning, Jenavieve Purcell, Aly Daniels, Haylee Hoch and Darleen Fernandez strung together four consecutive hits, including doubles by Daniels and Hoch, to put the three runs on the board with Hoch and Fernandez earning the RBI. South Dakota State answered with its only runs on the game, putting up three in the bottom of the third on four hits. The Thunderbirds bounced right back and kept the heat on with a run in

the top of the fourth on an RBI double by Fernandez and added another two in the sixth on a wild pitch and RBI tallied by Hoch. Southern Utah's final two runs came in the seventh as the T-Birds made the most of the fourth error committed by the Jackrabbit defense, scoring Nicole Huntsman from third and on a double steal performed by Sami Parry and Daniels to punctuate the game 11-3. Heather Black earned the victory for the Thunderbirds in the circle, throwing a complete game while allowing three runs on eight hits with four walks and eight strikeouts. The result continues Black's undefeated streak in league games with a perfect 7-0 mark. Southern Utah wasn't able to push runners across the plate in game 2, leaving a dozen runners on base and scoring its only run in the top of the second inning. Three walks and a hit by pitch scored the run in the frame as Brittany Henderson recorded the RBI on a walk with the bases loaded. SUU starter Danielle Axe did her part in the circle, holding the Jackrabbits to just two hits over the first six innings while striking out five and

walking a single batter. However, Axe ran into trouble in the bottom of the seventh as she gave up a pair of base hits, which tied the game at 1-1. Black entered the game in relief and allowed another single, but recorded a strikeout to put two outs on the board. However a throwing error during the next at bat allowed an SDSU runner to score from second and gave the Jackrabbits the 2-1 victory. Saturday’s T-Bird victory came, in large part, because of a dominating pitching performance from Black as SUU retained the top spot in the Summit League standings. South Dakota State recorded the first run of the game on a pair of singles in the bottom of the first inning. However the base knocks proved to be two of only three hits for the Jackrabbits on the day as Black struck out the final two batters to end the inning and begin a stretch of eight consecutive punch outs. Southern Utah tied the game in the top of the second inning, showing patience at the plate and drawing four consecutive walks with Huntsman tallying the RBI on the fourth free pass. SUU looked like it would score

in the top of the fifth with runners on first and second, but a strikeout and fly ball ended the threat as the T-Birds left nine runners on base during the day. The winning run for Southern Utah ultimately crossed the plate in the top of the seventh inning as Daniels hit a one-out double to put herself in scoring position. Fernandez drove in the run on an RBI single up the middle to give the Thunderbirds the 2-1 advantage. Black then cemented the victory for SUU as she capped off a 15-strikeout performance on the day with three during the final frame to end the game. Black set a new career high with the 15 strikeouts on the day, throwing her 16th complete game of the season after 7.0 innings where she allowed only one run on three hits with no walks. Southern Utah will return to action this afternoon when the Thunderbirds host the Dixie State Red Storm in the annual “Swing for Life” game. Fans are encouraged to bring donations for breast cancer research with the game scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at Kathryn Berg Field. Press release submitted by SUU Media Relations.

SUU football has scrimmage Chilly, wet conditions didn’t stop Southern Utah’s football team from holding its second scrimmage of the 2011 spring session last Saturday. In fact, the conditions were a welcome factor to the coaching staff in the special teamsoriented session. “It would have been easy to postpone or cancel a scrimmage on a day like this,” coach Ed Lamb said. “But we welcomed the opportunity. We want to be in a position to be playing in the winter months, in the playoffs … There are a lot of difficulties this kind of weather brings, if we have the opportunity to be playing meaningful games in this kind of weather, this can be beneficial.” Lamb said the cold, wet conditions tend to bring out a lack of focus and concentration, and that those aspects came out in the scrimmage. Hopefully, the team learns from it, however, and carries

it over when it means something. “We’ll be playing in a game under these conditions,” he said. “Either at home or on the road. If we are in the playoffs in December we will benefit from a day like today.” Co-Special Teams Coordinator Ronnie Pentz, who works primarily with the kicking game, echoed Lamb’s view of the opportunity. “Our goal is to be playing in December, and playing in these conditions will help us when we get there,” Pentz said. “It’s good to experience this in a scrimmage. There are a lot of unknowns with conditions like this.” As for the scrimmage itself, both Lamb and Pentz said they viewed it as sloppy, but reserved further comment until they had the opportunity to look at the film of the session. “It’s hard to make any meaningful criticism (of the

scrimmage) without watching the film,” Lamb said. The team worked with special teams for about half of the 90-minute sessions, working on all aspects, including kickoffs and punts, both returns and coverage, as well as placekicking situations, both field goals and extra points. Brock Miller, who emerged last year as the team’s primary place-kicker, hit all of his field goals and extra points except one, which was blocked. Newcomer Colton Cook stood out with his long kickoffs. “We have two very competent kickers ... they bring out the best in each other,” Lamb said. “Brock became our starting kicker last year and he became very dependable,” Pentz said. “He’s doing a good job this spring. Colton is new but he’s doing a good job, he has a very strong leg.” Press release submitted by SUU Media Relations.


The Canyon View Falcons continued their troubled season April 5 when they faced a shutout loss against Desert Hills. So far the Falcons have yet to find a victory and have, in fact, only scored 2 goals for the season. They played Hurricane and Cedar on Monday and Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. Their next home game is against Pine View on April 26.

SUU splits weekend series with NDSU Scoreboard SUU beat NDSU in games last Thursday and Friday, but lost both games of a Saturday doubleheader to split the series. In the first game, in Cedar City, Southern Utah combined a strong outing from freshman pitcher Chris Chung with a late inning rally to pick up a win in their first conference game of the season. The Thunderbirds trailed most of the game before scoring three runs in the seventh inning and then held on for the 4-3 victory. North Dakota State jumped out to an early lead in the first inning when first baseman Zach Heidmann hit a double to deep left field, scoring Zach Wentz from first. In the bottom of the inning Bo Cuthbertson reached base with a two out single to center field. He would then advance to second on passed ball. Mitchell Kauweloa then hit a single to drive in the run and knot the score at 1-1. The Bison retook the lead in the following inning thanks to a lead off double from catcher Tyler Steen who was later driven in on an RBI single off the bat of Max Casper. The score would remain 2-1 in favor of the visitors until the Thunderbirds mounted a rally in the bottom of the seventh. Chase Rezac singled to center field to give SUU a base runner, then promptly stole second. He advanced to third on a single hit to center field hit by centerfielder Marcus Romero. Down a run with runners on the corners, the Thunderbirds’ RBI leader stepped to the plate. Cuthbertson would hit a triple down the right field line scoring two go-ahead runs. In the next at bat he scored from third on a wild pitch to give Southern Utah a 4-2 lead. After the game SUU coach David Eldredge commented on the pivotal inning for his team. “In that situation you have to consider the squeeze, but with Bo’s average it is hard to take the bat out of his hands,” he said. “I told him to go up there and do what he has done all year for us.” North Dakota State added a run in the eighth, but Southern Utah’s pitching kept the Bison offense in check for a final score of 4-3. Chung had another impressive start for the Thunderbirds, giving up only three runs while striking out seven over eight innings. “His performance was outstanding,” Eldredge said. “He struggled a little in the first couple of innings because he was trying too hard to throw strikes. He has three good pitches, so I told him to go out there and pitch how he felt comfortable.” As a result Chung earned a team-best fifth win this season and improved his record to 5-3 overall. The next three games of the series were moved to Henderson, Nev. because of snow and rain in Cedar City. In the second game, Friday night, each team rode strong pitching performances from their starters in a game in which only three runs were scored on a combined eight hits. Bison pitcher Mark Hermes held the Thunderbird lineup scoreless through the first five innings, before surrendering two runs in the bottom of the sixth. James Crockett pitched all nine innings, becoming the first Thunderbird pitcher to throw a complete game this season, improving his record to 2-5. The first hit of the game wouldn’t come until the third inning when Blake Turbak led off the inning for the Bison with a left field single. The next two batters grounded out, advancing Turbak to third. He would then score on a wild pitch for North Dakota State’s only run of the game.

Southern Utah had several scoring opportunities, but didn’t get on the board until the sixth inning. David Ricker drew a lead off walk, Kauweloa was hit by a pitch, and Taylor Shaw singled to load the bases. In the next at bat Justin Neuhart came through with a double down the right field line, scoring Ricker and Kauweola and giving the Thunderbirds a 2-1 lead. SUU used solid pitching from Crockett combined with flawless defensive play to hold on for the one-run win. The Thunderbird starter began to show signs of fatigue in the fifth, but Crockett would get out of the jam with a strikeout to end the inning. In the seventh, the left-hander appeared to be wearing down again when Eldredge visited the mound. “I told him that with the left-handed batters coming up in the order I needed him to get four more outs,” the coach said. “He came through and told me that he was tired but was hoping to get a ninth inning adrenaline rush. I let him take it one batter at a time from there, and he was pitching so well that he went the whole game.” The Thunderbirds were without junior shortshop Bo Cuthbertson for Friday’s game and both of Saturday’s games because of an illness. Cutbertson leads the team in batting average, runs, hits, RBI, steals, and slugging percentage. In his absence Friday DJ Andrade got the start at short. The sophomore made several key plays, helping to seal the victory for SUU.

“Every team loses players to injury, or has someone in the lineup who is struggling. That gives other players the opportunity to step up and fill that role.” –David Eldredge “He plays with a lot of energy and really enjoys the game,” Eldredge said. “He is very athletic and as he learns to be more patient at the plate he will contribute a lot to this team.” North Dakota State used a late-inning rally to take the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader by a score of 12-5, then withstood one by Southern Utah in the second game to hold on for a 8-7 win. At the end of the series the Bison had evened their conference record at 2-2 and improved to 4-18 on the season. SUU dropped to 2-2 in the Summit League and 13-16 overall. In the first game of day it appeared Southern Utah was on its way to a third straight victory after a solid start from Andy Harvey and good hitting gave the Thunderbirds a 4-1 advantage after six innings. It looked like the offense had found its stride after scoring in four consecutive innings. The first run of the game came in the bottom of the fourth when Kauweloa hit a deep shot over the left field wall for his second homerun of the year. North Dakota State would level the score in the following inning thanks to a homerun off Wentz’s bat. SUU would add two more runs in the bottom half of the fifth to extend its lead to 3-1. The first came when Ricker hit an RBI double to deep left field to score Andrade from second. He would then be driven in at the next at bat by Henderson native Romero. In the sixth inning Justin Neuhart

reached first with a single to right center, then advanced to third on a double hit by left fielder Brock Westphal. Sophomore catcher Colton Land would then lay down a sacrifice bunt down the first base line to score Neuhart from third, making the score 4-1 in SUU’s favor. In the top of the seventh North Dakota State would get an RBI single from Nick Colwell and pick up a run on a wild pitch to make it a one run ball game at 4-3. In the bottom half of the inning the T-Birds would load the bases and then score a run when Shaw was hit by a pitch to take a 5-3 lead. The eighth inning belonged to the Bison as they took advantage of errors and defensive miscues to put up 10 runs on SUU to take a commanding 13-5 lead, which would also be the game’s final score as NDSU took the first game of the doubleheader. “It seems that when we make a mistake we have a hard time moving past it,” Eldredge said. “Early in the inning we made an error that should have been the third out and then we lost focus. We let it affect our play and after that we made several bad plays.” Poor play in the late innings was costly in both games for SUU. “We haven’t been playing with enough energy or focus,” he said. “We start well but then struggle down the stretch. Part of the issue is the consistency that we are looking to get out of our relievers. Our starters have done a good job for us this year, but we haven’t been able to find anyone that can consistently finish games. There have been a few games where I have tried to get a few extra out from our starters before going to the bullpen and it has cost us some runs.” In the back end of the doubleheader it appeared Southern Utah continued to lack focus.  The Thunderbird defense gave up seven runs in the first six innings and trailed by a score of 7-2 going into the final inning. With two outs in the bottom of the seventh Romero started things off with a single to center field. He then advanced to second on a hit by Austin Hunt and scored on an RBI single to left off the bat of Kauweloa. Neuhart was then hit by a pitch, loading the bases for SUU. Westphal and Shaw then hit back-to-back RBI singles making it a one-run game at 7-6. In the next at bat Taggart Lunceford battled off several pitches until one got past the catcher, allowing Westphal to score on a wild pitch to tie the game and send it into extra innings. Wes Satzinger led off the inning with a double for North Dakota State and then advanced to third on a hit by Steen.  Nic Colwell then hit a deep sacrifice fly to left field, allowing Satzinger to score from third and giving NDSU a one-run lead. Bryson Kenolio hit a lead off single for the Thunderbirds in the bottom half of the inning, but the Bison defense recorded three consecutive outs to take a final score of 8-7. Eldredge acknowledged the task of filling the void Cuthbertson left in the lineup. “In these one run games he could potentially be the difference,” he said.  “Every team loses players to injury, or has someone in the lineup who is struggling. That gives other players the opportunity to step up and fill that role.” Southern Utah will travel to IPFW this weekend for their first conference road games this season. The two teams will play a pair of doubleheaders with the first scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Friday, and the second at the same time Saturday.

Elementary celebrates BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor PAROWAN – Students at Parowan Elementary enjoyed a celebration last Wednesday in honor of their school building’s 50th birthday. They first attended an assembly where they heard about what it was like to move into the building and attend school there 50 years ago. Teacher Rex Burton, who was in first grade at the time, spoke about how, on the day the students moved into the new school, they brought wagons and helped move desks, books and all their materials over to the new facility. They came at 8:30 a.m. and worked until about 1, when they began school for the day in the new building, he said. Before the new building was completed Parowan High School and Parowan Elementary were one school in two buildings with leaky roofs. Since the school’s completion in 1961 it has changed some and been added onto, but most of the building remains the same. In a video shown at the assembly School Board Member Alan Adams said he remembers the move, and he pointed out the cement pillars in the gymnasium that are not attached, but rather have notches and rest on each other. He said this design element made the building safer in case of an earthquake. Principal Kevin Porter said there have been two additions, with eight classrooms total, since the school was built. Burton said other than the new classrooms and some changes to the hallways, the school is the same as it was in 1961. Porter said the building has been taken care of so well that many who visit the school are surprised to learn its age. Custodian Craig Rowley, a student 50 years ago, and Glen Halterman, who was PTA president when the new school was built, also spoke on the video. The adults told the students about what activities they liked to do at recess including playing marbles, kickball, and basketball, and how much they enjoyed staying close to the building after school to watch the high school kids play baseball. There was also a Marvin and Jesse play during which two PES “kids” went back in time and saw the first day of school in the building in 1961. Teachers See BIRTHDAY | B6

Evening completes class project, benefits alliance BY ASHLEY LANGSTON Managing Editor CEDAR CITY – “An Evening of Culinary Enlightenment” featuring art, music, food and wine took place last Wednesday, completing a semester project for SUU’s Quantity Food Production class and benefiting the Downtown Retail Alliance. The event was in the Hunter Conference Center and was essentially a large cocktail party. Professor Lisa Assante said her class is part of the Hotel, Resort and Hospitality Management program and some of the students have never cooked before getting into the class. Assante, the 10 students in the class and three teachers aides put together the whole event, planning the menu and arranging the music. The wine tasting aspect was only able to take place after a lengthy process that involved a lot of paperwork.

Because of the small amount of alcohol served to each guest and the fact that it was being offered as part of a ticket price, rather than sold, it was a little easier to get the necessary permission, she said. Serving alcohol as part of an event was a first for a class to do on campus though, she said. Students who poured wine at the event were certified to serve alcohol by the National Restaurant Association and were 21 or older. All students in the class were certified in safe food handling through the restaurant association, Assante said. Those who purchased tickets and were 21 or older were given a wristband with four pull-off tabs and were able to get four 2-ounce servings of wine over the three-hour event. The wine was served in one room, dessert was available in another room, and art from the Rogue Art Gallery was displayed and for sale in the upstairs lobby.

In the Gilbert Great Hall hors d’oeuvres were available and the gypsy folk band Taarka performed. Assante said the students had to pull a lot of aspects together for the event and do a lot of cooking. They produced 500 cream puffs for the event. The turnout and the food were both impressive, she said. Those who attended had the opportunity to fill out comment cards, which would affect the students’ grades, she added. Cameron Shaw, a teacher’s assistant for the class, said the idea for the event came about because designer Mark Baruffi, who is also vice president of the Downtown Retail Alliance, helped with the fall class’s Make-a-Wish event. After talking with Baruffi the event was created and is something the class will definitely consider doing next spring as well, Shaw said. After costs were covered, proceeds went to the alliance. The fall 2011 class will plan a ball for the SUU Service and Learning Center.

Iron Springs’ Koa CMS 6th graders wins state award enjoy career day

North Arts Night a team effort

Iron Springs Elementary is proud to announce that Koa Eldredge was the winner of the Utah PTA “Award of Merit” in Literature. Over 50,000 students participated statewide. Congratulations Koa! Congratulations to our spelling bee winners Chet Higby (first place) and Ainsley Hopkins (second place). The third grade had a busy week a couple weeks ago with two field trips. They attended “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at the Randall Jones Theatre. We enjoyed seeing current and former students from Iron Springs performing in the play. The next day, third grade attended Farm Field Day at the Diamond Z Arena in the Cross Hollows Event Center. Students spent the afternoon receiving hands-on learning about agriculture in the Iron County area. It was a fantastic day for all. Many thanks to everyone that made this field trip a success. 

The student artists and performers were the stars who walked the red carpet at North Elementary Arts Night, but there were other stars who need to be acknowledged: Mrs. Mona Woolsey, and Mrs. Cathy Riesen (Arts Committee) put in endless hours preparing. Mr. Brent Bonner, principal, and custodians Mr. Ryan Rayburn and Mr. Hunter Shaheen went the extra mile. Every teacher and many staff members volunteered extra hours. High school students and former Polar Bears, Jake Rollo and Taylor Boxwell served hors d'oeuvres, and Shelby Woolsey and Bailey Kilpack acted as MCs for the talent show. It was an amazing example of team effort, and that is one of the many things that makes North Elementary special. Congratulations to Jack Sury and Dylan Maynard who tied for first place in the first through third grade Spelling Bee, and to Courtney Flanigan, first place and, Kett Einfeld, second place in the 4th-5th grade contest.

Three Peaks Arts Night busy, fun Last week was very busy at Three Peaks. Our wonderful PTA organized and conducted the arts night and family spaghetti dinner. Each child created an art piece to display under the direction of art specialist Kate Montoya. The art show also included an exhibit from the Utah Arts Council, “Future Monets, Manets, and Mary Cassatts.” Representatives from SUU were present to discuss the new Southern Utah Museum of Art. Two pieces from the Jim Jones collection were on display in the foyer. Karen Gale from the Braithwaite worked with second graders on Zendangles. They integrated the rock science core curriculum with art. The first annual Three Peaks Spelling Bee took place. Lower grade winners were Lydia Pace and Melody Allen. Upper grade winners were Sadie Gregerson and Makaylie Langford. A special thank you goes to Kimberlee Jordan for organizing and conducting the Mathathon.

Enoch meeting to aid parents of kindergarteners Parents of upcoming kindergartners are invited to a special meeting on Thursday.

Ideas and activities will be presented for you and your child to work on during the summer. This event will be at 6 p.m. in the Enoch Elementary library. The kindergarten teachers are excited to meet with you. Student attendance is crucial this time of the school year. The SUU Science Voyager trailer visited our school and helped spark interest in science for all grade levels. We appreciate the students from SUU. They were amazing teachers. End-of-level testing and final reading assessments are upon us. Vacations during the school week disrupt classroom projects and essential curriculum. Help your child be successful by supporting classroom teachers with consistent student attendance.
