Heber, Colville, Henefer and everywhere in between, there was an impressive showing of over 50 classic and rebuilt automobiles from Morgan Valley. More photos on page 4

Morgan City asks residents to help ensure water system is lead-free

Morgan City is encouraging all residents to participate in a Utah Division of Drinking Water lead reduction program to ensure there are no lead pipes in its water system by completing a short survey to determine where there might be lead pipes.

“It’s a new rule update that the state is putting on all the systems to make sure there’s no lead or copper getting into the system, or in people's homes,” Water/Wastewater Senior Operator Kale Watkins said. “The state is basically just making a blanket rule to go over all the systems.”

Completing the survey helps the city to provide an accurate inventory of its water system, something that is also a new state requirement, Watkins said.

To his knowledge, Morgan City does not have any lead piping in its system and the city’s previous water operator indicated to him that he had never seen any lead pipes in Morgan, Watkins said. This seems to be partially because city leaders have been frugal in the past, Watkins said. “I was glad the city's always been frugal because to buy those lead connections and pipes they were more expensive, and I think the city was always very frugal and bought galvanized pipe instead. And it's helped us out in this situation.”

He would really like to know if there are still any lead pipes or connections in the city, he said. These are more common in homes or buildings constructed prior to 1970. When Watkins worked for Farmington City prior to coming to Morgan, “I used to see them there every once in a while,” he said.

Lead can enter drinking water when

pipes and plumbing fixtures that contain lead corrode. Exposure to large amounts of lead has been proven to be highly toxic, particularly to young children and infants. Lead exposure can cause anemia, weakness, nervous system damage, kidney and brain damage and even death at very high levels.

The Division of Drinking Water is asking property owners to find their water pipeline where it enters their home or building and, using a penny or a fridge magnet, determine if it is lead, copper, galvanized steel or PVC. (The city will complete a similar inspection at the meter box, Watkins said).

Property owners should then fill out a brief survey indicating the material the line is composed of, along with the

installation date of the line. If the person completing the survey doesn’t know that information, they should provide the year the home or building was constructed. Photos, which can be uploaded directly, are encouraged.

The test and survey are available on the city website or at https://survey123.

Those who want to participate may email the information and photos to if they prefer.

Watkins and his crew are happy to come out and help any homeowners unable to do this test survey themselves, he said. Just give him a call at 801-5168112.l

US - Ukraine deal signed

In a move reminiscent of the LendLease Act of 1941, the United States just signed a “security agreement” with the nation of Ukraine. The agreement constitutes a 10-year commitment on the part of the United States to continue to supply Ukraine with arms, ammunition, training, and “military assistance” according to CNN. The agreement does not constitute a treaty, and would not necessarily be binding to any future president. Both President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Biden have agreed the agreement is a big step against the continuing threat Russia poses to Ukraine, and Europe at large.

George Strait breaks concert record

It may come as a surprise given the media furor surrounding the star, but it wasn’t Taylor Swift breaking attendance records this week, but country music star George Strait. Strait performed at Kyle Field at Texas A&M, and performed for a crowd of 110,905, breaking the previous attendance record set by the Grateful Dead in 1977. Strait’s attendance surpassed that of the Grateful Dead by almost 4000. Strait’s show now holds the record for the largest ticketed show in U.S. History.

New submarine to visit Titanic

One year after a private submarine suffered a catastrophic failure while visiting the Titanic, another submarine is on its way to the wreck. Though no specific date has been released, the company, “Triton” has announced that plans are underway to send another submersible to the wreck to prove that small, deep-water submarines can be safe. OceanGate, the company that created and ran the ill-fated “Titan” submarine, reportedly ignored warnings, and paid little attention to regulations, throwing caution to the wind. Triton is reportedly going to great lengths to ensure the safety of their submarines, including subjecting them to third-party testing.

Russia and North Korea sign pact

In another international move mirroring the 1930s, Russia and North Korea signed a sort of “Non-aggression pact” of their own. Russian president Vladimir Putin himself paid a visit to North Korea, visiting with their supreme leader, Kim Jong Un. While the agreement signed included economic and cultural elements, the main focus, and one of major concern to the West is, in essence, a promise to assist one another in the event of aggression or attack on their respective countries. The agreement comes on the heels of the US-Ukraine agreement, and high tensions in both the war in Ukraine and on the Korean peninsula.

Helping Utah’s women and girls thrive

It Takes a Village or in Utah’s case, a lot of villages, and Morgan County is showing up for the challenge.

While Utah is an amazing place to live for many reasons, national and statewide research continues to conclude that women and girls in Utah are not thriving in critical areas. Year after year, Utah consistently ranks among the worst in areas of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, gender-based discrimination, and women's key positions in politics and business.

Along with many noteworthy organizations, the Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) is working to make a positive difference. And while we are making slight changes in a few areas, progress is slow. According to the Utah State University’s UWLP website, at its current trajectory, notable progress could take up to four decades. And nobody would agree that the rate of change could be acceptable for the women and girls of our state.

UWLP created a Bolder Way Forward as a way to gain momentum with County Coalitions as part of its framework. “Grassroots efforts will always be the best way to create long-term social change and it starts by raising awareness in our communities,” said Chris Hayes, local Morgan County resident and Co-lead for the Morgan County Coalition (MCC) for UWLP Bolder Way Forward. “My goal is to make sure that my neighbors and other Morgan County families know we have a problem and just how bad the problem is, but also that we can be part of the solution.”

On May 21, 2024, MCC held its first ever Think Tank participated by almost two dozen local Morgan community members including the

Morgan City Mayor, Steve Gale, and Morgan County Commissioner, Blaine Fackrell. The Think Tank was led by special guest and founder and director of UWLP, Dr. Susan Madsen. Madsen is considered one of the top global thought leaders on the topic of women and leadership and shares a passion for facilitating opportunities for women to thrive.

Madsen started the conversation by providing an overview of the problems we are seeing in Utah, including some very sobering statistics, along with an introduction to why UWLP Bolder Way Forward and our County Coalitions are so important to creating change. “The intent of the Think Tank was not to just talk to people, but to get those people brainstorming how we, in Morgan County, can make a difference – right here in our own community,” said Chris Hayes. The two-hour session went fast ending with four groups of participants tasked with brainstorming ideas for what community leaders and residents in Morgan can do to strengthen the impact of girls and women in our area. The feedback was amazing with many of the four groups were in synch with what we can do here in Morgan right away.

The Morgan County Coalition intends to continue paving the way for real change here in our community and is seeking volunteers to help with the initiative. “We welcome any person, male or female, that has a passion around this topic,” said Hayes. Please, if you’d like to get involved, reach out to Chris personally at l

Five students earn double Academic All-State awards

As reported last week, twenty-three Academic AllState awards were earned by MHS students in the Spring. Two students, Lindsay Birt and Ashlyn Noss, received three awards over the course of the year (see June 14 edition). Five additional students earned the award twice this year. Londyn Elmer, Preston Johnson, Gavin Olsen, Talmadge Sommers and Abby Titus each won two Academic All-State Awards during the 2023-204 school year. In addition to sports, Academic All-State Awards are presented to students in the Performing Arts Activities: Speech Debate, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music and Theater.

An Academic All-State Award recipient in track and theater, Londyn Elmer, will attend Cornell University in the fall to study Biomedical Engineering. She also hopes to stay involved in theater by performing and possibly minoring in it.

Elmer was part of the 2023 Girls’ Track State Championship. She also performed in the plays Singing in the Rain, Newsies, and Little Women.

She thinks the “Academic All-State award is an incredible way to recognize individuals who excelled in both school and extracurriculars, which is something that is not recognized very often. Receiving this award confirmed to me that I can accomplish incredible things when I put my mind to it.”

When asked how she balanced sports, school, and activities, she candidly replied, “Honestly, I didn't balance them. There were a lot of late nights, early mornings, and bus naps. What got me through were the amazing people I had around me. My teams, casts, friends, family, coaches, teachers, and mentors supported me through everything, and they were always there to celebrate my highs and help me ride the lows.”

Preston Johnson was the only individual to win two Academic All-State Awards for Performing Arts. Johnson won in the categories of Theater and Vocal Music. Johnson was a member of Ovation Choir his senior year and lettered in Choir. He was a member of the theater department all four years and lettered in it as well.

Johnson has been in five musicals and two plays during his high school career: “Freaky Friday” as Fletcher; “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” as the Preacher; “Newsies” as Pulitzer; “Little Women” as John Brooks; and “Singin’ in the Rain” as Cosmo. He was also in “You Can't Take It with You” and “Mouse Trap.”

Johnson is continuing to develop and share his skills. He is currently in rehearsals with Mountain Green Musical Theatre for “Twelve Dancing Princess.”

He plans to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After his mission, he plans to attend Weber State University.

Gavin Olsen, who received the Academic AllState Award for track and cross country, shared, “I am proud to earn this award because I worked extremely hard for it, and it feels good to see my hard work pay off. It takes a lot of time and effort to make the varsity team in any sport, but excelling in academics on top of that makes it much more difficult. This often goes unnoticed by others, so getting some recognition for my efforts feels great.”

He explained how he balanced his sports and aca-

demics. “During this past Track and XC seasons, school and sports were always my top two priorities. I worked really hard during the school day to ensure my grades were up to par and after school I worked my hardest as well.”

“I was always worn out by the end of practice, but I knew it was worth it. It was not easy, especially doing it for multiple sports seasons, but it earned me a place on the Academic All-State teams for Cross Country and Track. Excelling academically earned me a Presidential Scholarship to Utah State University, which makes college affordable. I have made many fun memories while at Morgan High both in the classroom and with running.”

Olsen will attend Utah State for a year before serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When he returns, he plans to finish his bachelor’s degree and pursue a master’s degree in either biology or neuroscience. He hopes to someday get married and start a family.

Olsen was part of the three state championship track teams: 2021, 2023, and 2024. l

Trojans baseball teams are getting much-needed reps

Morgan head coach Jed Stuart figured his teams might take a few lumps to start the summer league season. True to form, after a 1-11 loss at Northridge June 4, the Trojans varsity were given the opportunity to turn things around back at home, as they led a threegame homestand over the next four days.

Back on the home grass in Morgan County, the Trojans varsity squad rode to a 4-3 win over Copper Hills of Class 6A on June 10. They wouldn’t end up playing

Grantsville on June 11 and would be given a forfeit win in that game.

The Trojans would face West Jordan on June 13 and would lose that game 3-7 to close out what ended up being a 2-game homestand instead of three.

Either way, Morgan head coach Jed Stuart said he was happy the varsity-level Trojans now had a 2-2 record going into the third week of summer league action.

“It’s hard to simulate game reps

Morgan High Trojans top all other schools in 3A

For the sixth year in a row, Morgan High and its athletic teams have won the Deseret News All-Sports Award in the 3A Classification. This award recognizes the school in each classification whose teams won the most points from placements in state competitions of all sports sanctioned by the Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA).

Morgan tallied 92 points compared to second-place Canyon View’s 83.5. The Trojans brought home three state championships (competitive cheer, boys golf and boys track) and four second-place finishes (girls soccer, girls volleyball, girls tennis) and five other top four finishes (boys wrestling (3rd), football, boys soccer and baseball). Competitive cheer and drill are not calculated in the award (The Deseret News has not returned inquiries about how sports are selected to be included in the totals). The boys’ sports earned 54.5 points, and the girls’ sports tallied 37.5. Morgan boys’ teams earned points in every sport except basketball, tennis, and lacrosse while the girls missed out on points in basketball, tennis, cross country, lacrosse, and wrestling.

Athletic Director Kade Morrell shared his thoughts on the school’s sixth straight award of this honor. “I

think we owe a lot of this award to the coaching staff of every sport who work and focus on the whole athlete, not just winning.”

“Our coaches have developed a culture of success that involves all of the stakeholders: the athletes, the parents, the community, the teachers, and the administration,” he continued.

“I think we are able to sustain the high levels of competition because the kids themselves push each other to excel and succeed. The athletes on one team see the athletes on other teams succeeding and winning championships, and they want the same. As the kids feel success in one sport that confidence carries over into the other sports,” he explained.

Morrell also points to coaches who are willing to encourage “their” athletes to participate and contribute to other sports as another success factor. One example he described is that head football coach Jared Barlow awards points toward earning a varsity letter in football to those football players who participate in another sport or sports. Barlow’s program promotes the idea that participation in multiple sports helps athletic development and shares his athletes with other sports, an important thing in a smaller school

Former UVU, MHS Wrestler Named Head Coach at ALA

Chase Trussell, a Morgan High and Utah Valley University graduate and former wrestler, has been named the head wrestling coach at American Leadership Academy (ALA) in Spanish Fork. Trussell was featured in The Morgan County News a few months ago at the completion of his UVU wrestling career. ALA is a charter school that competes in the 2A classification.

As a three-time state champion at Morgan and wrestler in the highly competitive Big 12 Conference at UVU, Trussell brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his new position. Upon graduation from UVU, Trussell planned to work for the DEA and knew he would have some wait time before the hiring process could be completed. When the former head coach, Ben Anderson, at ALA left to head up the Pleasant Grove wrestling program, he reached out to Trussell, and the rest is history.

“When the idea of coaching at ALA came up, I found it intriguing. I never thought I’d be a coach, but I applied and here I am,” Trussell explained.

“I will coach and teach weights,” he detailed. “I am Mr. Sisson!” he wryly noted, referring to the popular Morgan High coach, teacher and strength and conditioning coach.

Trussell notes that he is excited about the position and very happy to have such great mentors as his high school coach Dustin Rock and UVU coach Greg Williams, who retired at the end of the 2024 season. “I’ve had great coaches. They’ve taught me so much.”

Rock shared in an interview. “I


like Morgan.

Another aspect of the sustainability of the success is the continued ability that coaches, parents, teachers and administrators have to “get good kids involved in activities.” “It takes everybody, “ Morrell shared. “If we don’t have teachers working with coaches to help the students learn the classroom and achieve, our student-athletes won’t be eligible to participate. If parents aren’t helping the kids get to practices, the coaches can’t work with them.”

Morrell gave a huge shout-out to the Morgan Community for their support of the athletic teams at Morgan High. “We have tremendous community support here in Morgan. So many of our parents and fans travel with our teams and support them.”

He also directed praise to the parents and coaches who help athletes develop in their sport during their high school off-season. “The year-round experience that the athletes get is a blessing, but it requires a lot from par-

from a practice standpoint, so the more games the better,” said Coach Stuart.

The Trojans JV team in the summer league played well from the giddyap but fell off the horse the following week. They won 15-9 at Northridge on June 4—but lost 0-10 to 6A Copper Hills on June 10 back at home.

On June 11, the Trojans won by forfeit against Grantsville and on June 13 closed out the homestand by thumping 6A West Jordan, 9-2.

That moved the Trojans JV record thus far to 3-1 on the season.

Looking ahead, the varsity and JV teams will play three games this week.

The Morgan varsity will be at Jordan on Monday June 17 and will play home games against Clearfield [June 19] and Bountiful June 20. All game times

think Chase will do great! Watching him grow up over the last few years and being a part of a college program is going to serve him greatly. I’m excited to see how he does.”

Trussell’s ALA Eagles won’t be competing directly against Morgan in state competition as the Eagles are 2A, but his wrestlers will come up against Trojans at tournaments around the state.

“I’m most excited to share with my athletes what wrestling has taught me. It has taught me so many values. I was to pass along this to my wrestlers and help as much as I was helped by my coaches. I feel like it will be very fulfilling,” Trussell noted.

“I think fundraising will be the toughest thing for me to get a hold of, but I’ll reach out to my mentors and friends for advice,” he remarked.

“We will have a young team at ALA with only two who graduated this year. I’m going to start off with creating a culture like we had at UVU, a culture where everyone is on board. I believe success will come when there is a high standard, and everyone knows that standard and works toward it.”

Trussell is still in the process of hiring assistant coaches, but he is confident with his connections to the wrestling community in Utah Valley that he will be able to find some very capable assistant coaches.

“ALA is taking good care of me,” he explained. “With this being my first real job out of college, my ‘first big boy job’ as I like to call it, I’m really happy with where I am right now and very excited about the future of our program!” l

ents and coaches.”

“It has been great to see the community support to build up programs. An excellent example of this is our softball and baseball programs. Both had their best seasons in many years this year, and a lot of that is due to the community stepping in and building up feeder programs and parents coaching or finding teams for their athletes to continue to develop their skills outside of the season.” Morrell expounded.

He concluded by summarizing that Morgan’s teams continue to perform well due to great kids, great coaches, great community support along with a winning mentality and high expectations.

“Year after year teams come and go, and new kids will come in, but what doesn’t change in Morgan is the expectation,” Morrell finished. “I like the philosophy, ‘Enjoy it when you’re up, and work hard to get back up when you’re down.’ Our kids, coaches and community embody this philosophy, and it’s exciting to be a part of it.” l

will be at 6 p.m. The Trojans JV team will play the same schools as the varsity on the same days at 4 p.m.

In the [9th grade and under] North division, the prep-level Trojans have played one game and lost by the final score of 1-25 to Northridge on June 12.

They’ll now play four straight games at home, starting with a doubleheader Monday June 17 against Syracuse and Woods Cross. Those game times are set for 4 and 6 p.m.

The prep team will play another twin bill at home Friday June 17 against Corner Canyon at 4 and 6 p.m. For Coach Stuart, the aim regardless of the score is to get more experience for all of the Trojans’ teams.

“We are looking to improve all aspects of the game from pitching to base running,” he said. “This league will help with situations we may see in the future also.” l

MHS Cheerleader Charlee Breshears receives prestigious award

Charlee Breshears, a 2024 Morgan High School graduate and member of the Morgan High School cheer team, was honored recently at the second annual Deseret News High School Sports Awards gala. The awards ceremony was held at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City June 8, 2024.

Over 170 high school athletes from 55 schools received recognition for their success in different high school sports.

Breshears was one of five cheerleaders from across the state of Utah to be honored at this event for her hard work, dedication, and outstanding performance on Morgan High School’s competitive cheer team.

This was the first time in the event's history for competitive cheer to be honored and recognized at the Deseret News High School Sports Awards.

Morgan High School was awarded the All-Sports Award for the 3A classification at the event as well. l

Morgan football gearing up for new season

So far, so good for the Trojans as the summer rolls on.

With that news comes the news that Morgan Football will be welcoming back a good number of young men that will be coming back from last year’s 3A semifinalists.

“We have a good mix of returners,” said head coach Jared Barlow.

At quarterback, Coach Barlow will bring back Beck Sheffield, who will be a senior. He threw for 2,655 yards passing and had 25 touchdowns against just 11 interceptions as a junior and was named a Deseret News Class 3A Honorable Mention for his efforts.

The coach said the Trojans will also bring back Jett Salmon, who will also be a senior. The bruiser ran for 336 tough yards as a junior and scored five touchdowns and plays linebacker on the other side of the football.

Another playmaker for Morgan was Lincoln Gilson, who will be a senior as well. The lanky wide receiver had 930 yards in the air and hauled in 11 touchdowns. As a junior, he earned a spot on the 3A Second Team for his efforts.

The Trojans also have three players returning on the offensive line, said Coach Barlow. Ledger Keele, Max Mueller and Bradlee Walters will help anchor things along the front and protect Sheffield’s blindside.

On the other side of the ball, the

D-line will have Nik Preece back for his senior year. As a junior, the multisport athlete had 34 tackles and two sacks for the Trojans.

Also back for his senior year is Tate Steele. The versatile two-way player registered 31 tackles and three sacks and had an interception along with a defensive touchdown as a junior.

At linebacker, Coach Barlow said the Trojans will be welcoming back Jett Salmon and Krew Galbraith and both will be seniors.

Salmon had 26 tackles, registered three sacks and had two interceptions on the way to being named a 3A Honorable Mention by the Deseret News as a two-way player.

Galbraith had 35 tackles as a junior and was Mr. Steady out on the football field for the Trojans. He registered three or more tackles in six of the games he played last season.

In the safety position, Abe Anderton will be a senior. He had 35 tackles and grabbed an interception for the Trojans.

Finally, at corner, Jack Despain returns for his senior year. He had 17 tackles and two interceptions for Morgan, who Coach Barlow stressed still has several spots to fill on both sides of the ball with plenty of young men still vying for starting positions.

“We also have a good group that saw some good varsity time last year but didn't start,” said the Trojans head coach. l

Budgets, taxes, cell phones, and more–here are your highlights from this month’s School Board and budget meeting.

In Public Comment, Angie Trease gave a shout-out to school administrators and special thanks to Superintendent Jensen for more open dialogue and positive communication this year, noting that she appreciates his willingness to “work together” and “be a team” with parents.

On the building front, the new shop at the MHS is in the design phase, with all engineering details going to the architect this week. The existing shop will remain in use during the construction of the new facility. Meanwhile, the replacement of the small gym at MMS is wrapping up the design phase and finalizing bids. Once construction begins, there will be adjustments to facility use to accommodate demolition and building.

last year’s increase in revenue from building and housing developments across the county–although, this year’s revenue from one key development is down.

These factors have contributed to a budget shortfall that requires some adjustments. To make up the difference, the district will forgo cost-of-living salary increases this year and will reduce four certified positions by moving teachers into other positions vacated by personnel who have retired or left the district (attrition, not layoffs). While the district expects enrollment at the elementary level to continue to decline, overall reviews are expected to increase with the county-wide developments.


In budget and taxes, the Board voted to float down the tax rate again this year, which means many county residents will see lower real property taxes when notices arrive. The district is experiencing a population shift and enrollments are down at the elementary schools, leading to a decrease in funds from the State for the Weighted Pupil Unit. Additionally, the district experienced a decrease in “equalization” money from the State, based on

In other news, the Board approved the Sex Education and Maturation Policy and Instructional Materials for the upcoming year (no changes from last year) and the Cell Phone Policy (restricts phones during school hours at the elementary and middle schools and during classes at the high school). Complete policies are available via the district website.

The Board will meet again in August. In the meantime, we will be transitioning from Aspire to PowerSchool and Canvas district-wide as well as rolling out a new, user-friendly website.

The spirit of freedom and adventure shine in

The Bikeriders (in theaters) There are two ways to watch “The Bikeriders.”

The first way is simply soaking in the vibes. Director Jeff Nichols was inspired to make the movie by a photo/interview book of the same name, and his commitment to capturing the late 1960s biker experience is intense. He’s also clearly deeply attached to James Dean, whose essence is also all over this movie. You can see it most clearly in the form of Austin Butler’s character Benny, a physically gorgeous encapsulation of the fierce, pure, independent spirit Dean has always symbolized. The movie devotes a ton of energy to celebrating both vibes, and if you’re a fan of either you’ll definitely leave this movie well-fed.

‘The Bikeriders’ and ‘Thelma’

The other way to watch it is as an English Lit major preparing to write an essay. Nichols has a lot to say with this movie, starting with simultaneously mythologizing and deconstructing the mythology of the American biker. Tom Hardy does a lot of heavy lifting on this, symbolizing both almost at the same moment, and he does a wonderful job no matter which side of the scale he’s on. Butler also serves as a metaphor for both James Dean and the fantasy of true freedom itself, made sympathetic through Butler’s performance.

Nichols is so busy exploring every side that he never quite lands on a solid thesis statement, but there’s something fascinating in following his explorations. There are a lot of big ideas here, and Nichols doesn’t want to miss any of them.

Grade: Three stars




An inspection trip made last week by the commissioner included checkups of the Springville, Midway and Kamas hatcheries, all of which are preparing to pout more than 1,500,000 trout into Utah streams this year. The depressing conditions of the last two years, during which fishing reached its lowest ebb in years are apparently remedied now, according to Mr. Cook, who gave no little attention to the streams and water supply at the plants. Although the precipitation has not been sufficient to elevate the streams to their normal size. It is believed that they will be high enough to ensure good angling throughout the year. The season is expected to open on the same date as last year and probably run a little longer, although the commissioner has not yet set the time.


An old Civil War discharge was found under some old boards in an old log barn belonging to James Johnson, of Coalville. The Union Defenders Certificate is made out to Adam Fletcher, and shows service in the Union Army from June 5th, 1861 to February 26th, 1864,

in the battles of Charleston, Vicksburg, Jackson, and Chattanooga, in the A. 4th Regt. Volunteers. It was signed by John J. Sayre, 1st Leut. Carrying the imprint of the McMullen and Gates Printing firm of Cincinnati, Ohio. Just how old this document, which is a fine piece of lithograph-work could have been so well preserved after so many years in the top of an old leaky log barn is a mystery. The writing is still easily read. Adam Fletcher will be remembered by the old pioneers now living. He is one of the first settlers and along with Sam Fletcher, opened the Grass Creek Mine.


The Utah State Agricultural College Band made their annual tour of Utah, beginning March 25, and lasting for five days, according to Professor N.W. Christiansen, director of the band. They gave concerts in 16 high schools in southern and northern Utah. The band has an organization of 80 members, representing sections of Utah, Idaho, Montana and Nevada. Margaret Williams and Hazel Chapin of Morgan are members of this organization which played in Morgan on March 25th at 10 a.m.

Thelma (in theaters)

Move over, Tom Cruise – there’s a new action star on the scene.

Meet “Thelma,” a 93-year-old woman who goes after scammers with the determination of John Wick and a sense of humor all her own. A big hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the movie manages to mix hilarious comedy, genuinely touching moments, and the excitement of the best action movies. When Thelma chases someone on a scooter, there’s a thrill in the fact that she means it as much or more than Cruise ever does.

When scammers trick Thelma (June Squibb) out of $10,000 by telling her her grandson needs it for bail, neither her daughter nor the police are much help. She decides to get the money back herself, helped out by an old friend (Richard Roundtree) and her struggling grandson (Fred Hechinger). What happens next is

both a parody of an action movie and a great action movie on its own merits, making fun of the indignities of old age without ever taking the dignity of the characters themselves. She and her partner may not be able to do as much as they used to, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of the game.

Josh Margolin’s script is charming and perfectly paced, but none of it would work without Squibb and Roundtree. Squibb is a delight, funny and tough at the same time, and so full of spunk you can imagine her taking on anyone. Roundtree, in his final film role, manages to both be funny and bring moments of wonderful solemnity to proceedings. Together, they’re both a comedy and action dream team.

Grade: Three and a half stars

Effective April 1st the Union Pacific Station at Morgan will be closed from 5 p.m. until 8 a.m. The operators formerly working nights will be transferred to an office near the tunnels during the period of construction on two bridges, after which the operators will be returned to regular duty at Morgan Station. There will be no material change in train schedules. U.S. Mail. express and passengers will be handled as in the past.


Monday of this week the Union Pacific began work preparatory to the rebuilding of two bridges on the old main line track in the vicinity of the tunnels between Morgan and Devil’s Slide. About 20 carloads of materials will be used in the work and it is estimated that approximately 100 men will be employed during the peak of the work. This work will require about three months to complete. Crossovers have been installed on either side of the work and trains in both directions will use the one track until the work is completed.

Hollywood Q&A

Q: Why do TV shows use stand-ins for scenes if the actual stars are already there? It seems unnecessary since they have to shoot a scene multiple times from different angles to avoid showing that it’s a stand-in.

A: Being “already there” is not the same as being ready and willing to do a simplistic

And doing that shot is not always the

use of an expensive actor’s time.


That’s the short answer for why films and shows might use a body double, sometimes called a stand-in, on camera. In a given production, there are a lot of scenes that require a character to be on screen but don’t require any real performance from the actor and don’t show the actor’s face. In cases like these, it makes more sense to use a double.

Note that the terminology is a little loose here. The term “double” or “body double” is more common when you’re talking about being on camera. “Stand-in” is more commonly used to refer to people who are around before the cameras roll, to literally stand where the actor would stand, for the purposes of planning shots and lighting.

Body doubles, interestingly, are sometimes called “fake Shemps,” in honor of Shemp Howard, one of the Three

Stooges. Howard died suddenly in 1955, and a double was used to finish four Stooges shorts he was committed to doing. For the curious, they were: “Rumpus in the Harem,” “Hot Stuff,” “Scheming Schemers” and “Commotion on the Ocean,” all released in 1956.

Q: Who is the actress who played Mary Todd Lincoln in “Manhunt”? And what’s she doing next?

A: In “Manhunt,” the Apple TV+ miniseries about the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln’s wife was played by Lili Taylor. Taylor’s best known for starring in the weird and controversial indie film “I Shot Andy Warhol” (1996), but she’s been a fixture of the big and small screens since 1988 when she came to fame as part of

the ensemble of another cult favorite, “Mystic Pizza.” As for what’s next for Taylor after “Manhunt,” first off, it’s not clear if her other streaming series will be back. She stars in the Amazon Prime series “Outer Range,” a sci-fi western in which she plays the matriarch of the Abbot family, opposite Josh Brolin (“Avengers: Endgame,” 2019). Its second season was released just a few weeks ago, with no word yet on a third. The story is still very much up in the air, and it seems to have been a hit for Amazon, so there’s reason to believe we’ll get more.

Celebrity Profile

Viewers who enjoy watching Seth Meyers in the wee hours will be glad to know he’ll be staying there, at least for a while.

In February, the “Saturday Night Live” alum marked his 10th anniversary as the sly, witty host of NBC’s weeknight program, “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” He’ll be continuing to preside over that show’s mix of topical humor, interviews and musical performances, since he recently signed a deal to continue with it through 2028. The extension of his contract also covers his producing other content for the NBC Universal-owned group of platforms. However, “Late Night” will be without regular appearances by its musical 8G Band beginning next season.

Having scored multiple Primetime Emmy nominations for “Late Night” and its digital spinoff, “Corrections,” the droll Meyers has certainly gotten his audience accustomed to what to expect from him and his staff. He differs from other talk show hosts by delivering his monologue (as well as the typically related segment “A Closer Look”) from behind his desk, while others usually stand center-stage to make their opening jokes.

Drilling down humorously on subjects of the day has been one of Meyers’ strongest suits for some time. It’s an art he honed during his tenure as the anchor (initially sharing that job with Amy Poehler, then with Cecily Strong just before he left the show) and head writer of the headline-spoofing “Saturday Night Live” feature “Weekend Update.” He reportedly held out from signing a new contract for “SNL” until he was assured a regular on-camera “Update” role. A past host of such events as The Primetime Emmy Awards and The ESPY Awards, Meyers also continues to do live performances in and around his other duties, and those who attend those appearances get the up-to-themoment relevance they anticipate from him. And thanks to his re-upping with NBC, he’ll keep reinforcing that expectation for some time to come.
