Local CEO Conquers Mount Kilimanjaro

By Erin Dixon

n February 2015, Lone Peak Hospital CEO, Mark Meadows, scaled the renowned Mount Kilimanjaro. Even though the goal was a personal one, as the head of the local hospital, Meadows is an example to his employees and the people of the community. “We try to promote a healthy lifestyle, we’re in the healthcare business we should be promoting a healthy lifestyle. You don’t have your health you don’t have anything, you can’t do anything,” said Meadows. Meadows and his son-in-law spent the better part of a year planning their trip. They needed that year to train and prepare for the arduous journey, which is demanding not only on the muscles, but on the lungs as well. The rapid increase in altitude on Mount Kilimanjaro can be the most difficult challenge, so spending time at higher altitudes beforehand is paramount. “It’s really the altitude that gets most people. About a month before I spent a lot of

“People are reliant on using WiFi. It’s really crippling if it’s not available, so we

decided to make sure it’s not blocked with common items at our school or at homes and also how to be able to block outside hackers from gaining access.”

Behind Prison Bars Is... A Crochet Hook? By Erin Dixon

W

hat goes on behind the bars at the Utah State Prison may surprise you. Our minds are usually filled with images of men and women in jump suits, bars, concrete floors and stern guards at every corner. But here, there are also classrooms and chapels, and volunteers from outside the prison are welcomed almost daily. Two of these volunteers are your neighbors, Kelli Davey and Lisa Clayton. They visit the women’s prison on a monthly basis, and do something unexpected: crochet. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is responsible for recruiting many of the volunteers. Davey and Clayton signed up through their LDS ward, along with others. They volunteer once a month, but others are there more often. Bishops, Relief Society presidents and teachers are at the prison every week, serving and instructing in the LDS faith. All prisoners are welcome at any of the services, regardless of their faith. In addition to traditional Sunday meetings, the church also provides activities and firesides during the week, like what Davey and Clayton participate in. Davey and Clayton serve as a small, but influential spoke of the volunteer wheel. Along with some other volunteers, they facilitate a crochet class, but they don’t teach. They are simply there to provide good, positive conversation. “Sometimes we’ll just sit and chat with each other and they will comment how nice it is to hear normal conversation of normal moms in the normal world. Normal conversation isn’t something they know how to do,” said Davey. The crochet group is also an opportunity for the women in the prison to learn and improve a craft. “They learn a skill that’s a relaxation skill, it’s a social skill, it’s a productive skill,” said Davey. The women in the prison can also earn service hours through crocheting. All of

the crochet work - blankets, washcloths, baby clothes, etc., are donated to different charitable organizations; whoever is in need. Many of the women in the prison are very talented with a crochet hook. “The very first day I went ... this gal ... crocheted these little tiny baby booties. They were amazing, beautiful. I was blown away,” said Clayton. Davey has been volunteering for two and a half years, and Clayton for four years. “I enjoy volunteering, it’s different people to serve,” said Davey. “I enjoy seeing the positive interaction between [the women],” said Clayton. “I like to see their kindnesses to each other. ... Their friendships ... I like to talk with them, I like to see their talents.” The volunteer work does not go unappreciated by the recipients. “They love having the volunteers coming out,” said Valerie Johnson, Mountain Point stake Relief Society presidency. “I don’t know if some of them have ever experienced the kind of love, example and kindness from the volunteers.” Johnson is in charge of coordinating the crochet group volunteers at the prison. Without her efforts, the women at the prison would not have the chance to get together each week. To volunteer at the prison you must pass a background check, and if you want to be a regular you must also attend a training class each year. l

Mount Kilimanjaro continued from page 1 time up at Snowbird or Alta,” said Meadows. The Wasatch Mountains are excellent training grounds for the African peak, particularly Jacob’s Ladder and Cherry Canyon, for their difficulty and altitude. Once at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, the trail takes hikers through several different terrains. From jungle at the base, to barren rocky cliffs void of plant and animal life, then a snow-capped peak. “As you start the trek you start at about 4,500 feet so you really start in the jungle/rainforest area. You work your way up from 4,500 feet to 10,000 to 13,000 to 15,000 feett and then you come back down to 13,000 feet. So you go up and then you come back down to let that acclimation set in, then what you’ll do is go back up to 16,000 feet, spend part of a day there resting and then you start your ascent at midnight.” The biggest struggle for any climber is elevation. Because the altitude change is so intense, repeating part of the climb before making the final ascent helps prevent severe altitude sickness. Oxygen is less dense at higher altitudes, which means if you ascend too quickly your body struggles to get

ON THE COVER enough. Headaches, fatigue and nausea are the most common symptoms and even the most physically fit can struggle if they aren’t acclimated properly. The heat of the day combined with the extreme altitude can make the final stretch incredibly difficult, so groups normally start climbing at night when the conditions are tamer. “At night ... the temperature was about 30 degrees [and] when the sun starts to come up, within an hour it starts to feel like it’s 60 degrees. You’ve gone from wearing all of your clothes, to taking off most everything and carrying it down. When the sun comes up you don’t do well, the altitude sickness starts to beat on you.” But Meadow’s group had a flawless final climb. “It was a perfect scenario because there was new snow on top...we had a clear night, the stars were as bright as I’d ever seen them in my life - to be at that elevation and to see the Milky Way, the Southern Cross which is fantastic... it was thrilling.” Kilimanjaro is a volcanic mountain. Unlike our mountains that were formed by earthquakes and glaciers, there are only two other peaks near Kilimanjaro. The view from

the top is unobstructed across the horizon. “It’s like a 180 view of the sun coming up.” Climbing high peaks is not a particular passion for Meadows, but setting and achieving goals is important to him. “Sixty is the new 50. It wasn’t a pleasure cruise but it’s nice to ... push yourself. You don’t know what you can do until you do it.” Mount Kilimanjaro might seem like an out-of-reach goal for most people, but Meadows was insistent that he was able to do it with time and effort, not purely talent. “You don’t need to be a climber. Like a lot of things you just need to be consistent and steady.” That being said, a group of tourists should not make the climb on their own. There are guides and porters that know the area and how to make the journey safely. “[The guides] are just wonderful... full of energy. We get the recognition because we made this goal to achieve... a personal goal, but we don’t do it without the support of others. They’re the encouragement. They cheer us on, keep our spirits up.” Meadows and his wife have a lifetime “bucket list” of goals to achieve. Though she

did not accompany him on this particular trek, several years ago they hiked across the high mountains of Nepal for two weeks together. He said, “A lot of people wait until they’re done and retired, and say I’ll do it then. Well, if you wait forever you never get it done. Life will pass you by and something else fills the void. You are only as old as you think and feel.” Mount Kilimanjaro is in the country of Tanzania, on the eastern coast of Africa. The peak is 19,336 feet above sea level and is one of the “Seven Summits,” a group of the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. The mountain is an extinct volcano that erupted nearly 2 million years ago. The name of the mountain is Swahili, and some say it means “Mountain of Light” or “Greatness”. Lone Peak Hospital strives to be an example to the community of healthy behavior and lifestyle. They regularly host free health clinics and seminars that are open to the public. Lone Peak Hospital is located on 11925 South State Street in Draper, Utah. l

COUNTY MAYOR’S MESSAGE By Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams

Wins and losses for Salt Lake County at the Utah Legislature

I

’m happy to report that the just-concluded session of the Utah legislature had what I believe are some big “wins” for the residents of Salt Lake County, as well as what I see as one major “loss”. Here’s a recap: 1. With the passage of Community Preservation (SB 199), residents of the townships and unincorporated areas will vote in an historic election this November. Thanks to months of work by volunteers in the community, voters—depending on where they live—will be able to choose to become a metro township or city, or to remain unincorporated. It’s a resolution to decades of fighting—pitting neighbor against neighbor. When residents cast their ballots, they’ll ensure boundary protection for their communities, begin a chapter of greater local control and not be forced to sacrifice high-quality, cost-effective services from Salt Lake County. This legislative action is an example of grassroots democracy at its best and would not have been possible without the good will generated by all sides coming together on this consensus bill.

2. The sponsor of HB 348, Rep. Eric Hutchings, calls it an “epic shift” in the criminal justice system. His bill is the result of a great deal of work by the Utah Commission on Juvenile and Criminal Justice. The measure seeks to reduce the time drug addicts stay in prison by dropping some crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor, while enhancing drug and mental health treatment. As the operator of both the jail and as the local mental health authority, Salt Lake County will be able to pursue policies that result in better treatment for those in our criminal system due to drug abuse, to enhance public safety and to use scarce taxpayer dollars more efficiently. 3. History-making legislation that expands anti-discrimination protections for those in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and

Governor Herbert

4. Gov. Herbert’s proposal to expand Medicaid—“Healthy Utah”—passed the Utah Senate but did not pass the Utah House. Not only is this troubling news for tens of thousands of uninsured Utahns who fall within the Affordable Care Act’s “coverage gap”, it also affects the county’s ability to provide health care to the jail population and to serve thousands of county residents with mental health and substance use disorder needs. Utah’s state drug court coordinator says that 80 percent of people who come through the Utah court system “have some sort of behavioral health need.” While the Governor has said he’ll continue to talk to legislative leaders in hopes of forging an agreement for a special legislative session, the ongoing lack of access to health insurance for so many in Salt Lake County will harm public health and strain our budget. It’s a privilege for me to serve as Salt Lake County Mayor. Please feel free to contact me at mayor@slco.org with any questions, concerns or ideas about how we build a safe, healthy and prosperous community. l

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor, My family and I moved into Draper about a 2 years ago. We have enjoyed the Corner Canyon biking trails. One of the trails called The Rush Trail is a popular biking route that is worldly known for. You experience not only the rush of it but also how dangerous it can actually be. While riding the trail you can almost crash into numerous objects like huge stones, trees, stumps, etc. If you were to accidentally crash into one of these objects it

could easily result in injury or death. Even if my family stopped because of the risk there will be many other bikers using the trail that could fall into the same incident. The best thing that could happen to the trail would be for the city to remove any objects out of the way of the trail. This would make it a lot less of a hazard and make it so more people can enjoy this famous trail. I hope something can be done! —Landon Taylor

A Taste Of Europe In Draper By Erin Dixon

I

f you have travelled to Europe in the past, you might want to schedule your next trip to the middle of Draper, Utah. Bake 360 is a locally owned cafe whose roots are buried deep in Scandinavian tradition. Roy Olsen, co-owner and pastry chef, hails his ancestors from Norway. Jennifer Olsen, his wife and co-owner gave the story: “My husband’s family immigrated here when his father was in his mid-40s, didn’t speak any English ... came here with six kids ... and started over. He worked in a variety of kitchens. He was a baker, he specialized in breads and danish. Then they opened a series of small retail bakeries, specializing in marzipan cake, things like that. They closed the last one 11 years ago.” Several of the recipes were passed down from father to son, and are offered today, such as the Raspberry Almond Danish and Sara Bernhardt. Because Roy grew up in a bakery, he was able to get his first executive pastry chef position at age 19, at Snowbird. Throughout his career he worked at various resorts expanding his Scandinavian recipes to encompass flavors from all over Europe. While working in downtown Salt Lake with an Italian

chef, he started making tiramisu. Unfortunately, the Italian chef, “told him it was total crap,” said Jennifer. Roy’s coworker brought in his Mother who was visiting from Italy, and she shared her recipe with Roy, which occupies a spot on Bake 360’s menu to this day. By 2012, Roy knew he wanted more freedom and creative license with his baking and cooking, so the family decided to open Bake 360. With his own business he could revive the recipes he had grown up with, as well as incorporate flavors and tastes he had cultivated while working with other chefs. They gave a name to their cafe that would reflect their

diverse menu. “Our title [is] Bake 360. The intent of that is offerings from around the world. It gives us flexibility to do a lot of different things. We’re not French, we’re not Scandinavian, we’re not Italian, we’re not German. We can be very flexible and open with the type of offerings we can have because of that name,” said Jennifer. The Olsen’s want to give the community a place to come to re-live memories, or expand their culinary horizons passed the franchises on every corner. “The vision is bringing people back to a particular time or place in life where they’ve experienced true European pastry. We get a ton of people who come in and say that it’s as good, if not better, than what they had in France,” said Jennifer. The Olsens, residents of Sandy City, opened their cafe in July 2012, and expanded in June 2014. Bake 360 won Best of State for Pastry, Casual Dining 2014 and 2015, as well as Cafe, Casual Dining 2015. They can be found at 12300 South 725 East in Draper, Utah, Tuesday through Sunday.

Who’s Your Caddy? By Peri Kinder

On Sundays I watch golf with my husband. (Explanation: On Sundays, I sit by my husband and read a book while he watches golf. Every few minutes he’ll say, “Watch this replay. This putt is incredible.” I’ll dutifully put down my book and make the appropriate noises of awe, such as “Wow!” or “That’s amazing.” Then I return to my book until the next spectacular shot happens.) Anyway. During one of my brief glimpses of the Golf Channel, I watched the pro golfer huddling with his caddy. They discussed wind direction, turf softness, angles, hills and how they’d spend the $1 million purse if the pro got his swing just right. I had an epiphany. I needed a caddy. Traditionally, a caddy’s job is to offer good advice, provide moral support, carry heavy stuff the golfer doesn’t want to pack around and understands the consequences of every club selection or course obstacle. Exactly what I need! A personal caddy is a great idea on so many levels. I’m notoriously reluctant when it comes to making decisions, but a caddy could talk me through the pros and cons of each restaurant or movie choice, allowing me to choose what’s for dinner in record time (less than an hour). At the grocery store, we could hunker down in the produce aisle and talk about what fruits and/or vegetables I will eat

before they turn into a massive puddle of brownish gloop in my refrigerator. This person could say things like, “Are you sure a chocolate Dunford donut is the best choice right now?” And he would not judge me when I throw a dozen donuts in my cart. My caddy could tell me when I have a booger in my nose, if I need a breath mint, warn me if I have spinach stuck in my teeth, remind me of peoples’ names, determine which road to take for the fastest trip to TJ Maxx and carry my purse—because I hate carrying purses.

When I’m in uncomfortable social situations (i.e. every day), my caddy could help me avoid awkward conversations or inadvertent insults by reading my mind and quickly asking, “Are you sure you want to say that?” And when I’m standing alone at a conference or birthday party, my caddy wouldn’t leave my side, making it look like I have at least one friend. While shopping for jeans or swimming suits, my caddy would give me a kind, yet insightful, opinion of each article of clothing, carefully avoiding phrases like “too small,” “how ‘bout a bigger size” or “maybe swimwear just isn’t your thing.” My caddy would also serve as a life coach. He would be a walking inspirational quote book, whispering encouraging words in my ear like, “You’ve got this,” or “You’re awesome.” If I’m too tired (lazy) to make dinner, my caddy would jump into action and order a pizza or grill up some fresh salmon. He’d tell me to sit back, enjoy a Coke, read a book and he’ll let me know when dinner’s ready. And then he’d do the dishes. Then I had a second epiphany; I already have a caddy. It’s my husband. And it’s his job to help me avoid hazards, keep my foot out of my mouth, offer encouragement and advice—and he even holds my purse when I’m trying on clothes. In return, I watch golf with him on Sundays. I think I get the better end of that deal. l

EDUCATION

Draper Elementary Selected As Confucius Classroom By Julie Slama

D

raper Elementary students, staff and faculty celebrated being named a Confucius Classroom April 3 and with the honor, the school will receive an annual $10,000 grant from the Chinese educational ministry. The Confucius Classroom grant is a partnership between Draper Elementary, the University of Utah’s Confucius Center and the Chinese National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language with the purpose to support Chinese dual immersion teachers, students and programs as well as to promote Chinese language and cultural understanding. Draper Elementary is one of six schools selected this year for the grant-partnership because of the maturity of its dual language program, said Eric Chipman, U of U Confucius Center’s assistant director. “It’s an exemplary program that other schools can look up to and see the quality teachers and their leadership and students learning and showing their achievement through great test scores,” he said. Long-time Draper teacher KLynn Johnson agreed. “The language immersion program is

just an awesome opportunity for students,” she said. Chipman said the $10,000 grant is annually renewed indefinitely at the discretion of the Chinese government. Each year, Draper Elementary will submit its budget to the U, which then will approve and disperse the funds. Draper Elementary Principal Piper Riddle said that the school leadership team will determine how the funds will be used each year. This year, they decided to ask for five SMARTboards to help with language instruction, as well as a 10 mini iPad lab, applications and accessories. “This allows for interaction between the language teachers and the students and gives them a chance to practice in small groups,” Riddle said. “The school receives textbook funds to support our language program, an interactive cultural display for our students, and funding for language.” Chipman said that part of the idea behind the grant is to help the entire school. “We want this to be an opportunity for all students to learn about China and the culture, the language, the arts, the calligraphy and all

Each of the nine students will receive a $1,000 savings bond and advance to represent the west region with an all-expense paid trip to the national competition June 15-16 in the Washington, D.C. area. The competition is one of several science, technology, engineering and mathematics initiatives offered by the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program designed to inspire middle school student interest in developing solutions to real-world problems

in their local communities. The region’s winning sixth-grade team, mentored by teacher Kyna Prettyman, were Sydney Astle, Avary Farnsworth and Trinity Smith. The seventh-grade team that won regionals is made up of Katelyn Cline, Hope Lundberg and Laulea Tavake. The eighth-grade regional winning team is Megan Astle, Jason Harmon and Katie Reading. Both the seventh- and eighth-grade students are taught by Rebecca Kern. All these teams won first place at the state contest, repeating state titles for the seventh

and eighth grades for the school. Channing Hall students also swept second place in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades. At the state level, each student on the first place received $1,000 savings bonds and second-place finishers each received $500 savings bonds. The second-place team in the state for sixth grade included Alora Gordon, Aly Milford and Manee Willey. Taking second place in seventh grade was the team of Sophia Goodwin, Laycee Williams and Tricia Tanner. The eighth-grade second-place finishers

Draper Schools To Have New Leadership

Science & Engineering continued from page 10

By Julie Slama

T

wo Draper schools will have new principals effective July 1. Oak Hollow Elementary will be under the direction of Julie Mootz, who currently is principal at Brookwood Elementary in Sandy; and Mary Anderson will serve as Draper Park Middle School principal. Anderson has been Union Middle School’s principal for the past 11 years. “Draper Park Middle School is one of the highest performing schools in Canyons School District and in Utah, so I’m thrilled to be going there,” Anderson said. “The staff is wonderful and there are great teachers and I’m planning to get entrenched in the culture and climate of the school and community.” Anderson said that she plans to meet with the Parent-Teacher-Student Association, School Community Council and Building Leadership Team as she makes the transition from Union. Prior to leading at Union Middle, she has been a teacher at Alta High School and worked in administration at Alta, Riverton High and Hillcrest High. Even though Draper Park at 1,500 students is nearly double the size of Union, Anderson is familiar with the Vikings. “Both of my sons went to the school

There are great things going on at the school.” One thing Anderson would like to do this summer is to dabble in her talent of making stained glass to create a Viking ship for her office window. Anderson will replace Greg Leavitt, who has been reassigned to Hillcrest High after

Channing Hall also had the team of Megan Astle, Jason Harmon and Katie Reading as well as the team of Matt Geerlings, Lane Harris and Collin Willey receive the 4-H Honorable Mention award. Other local school award-winners include American Preparatory’s Tiara Tuttle, who placed second in behavioral and social sciences and has been invited to participate in the Broadcom Masters national fair; Eve Warner, who placed first in behavioral and social sciences and received the U.S. Air Force Junior Award and the Broadcom Masters invitation; Ellie Warner, who placed third in medicine and health sciences; Sophia Cuellar, who received honorable mention in biology and biochemistry and honorable mention for the National Center for Women and Information Technology award, and Milena Johnson, who placed second in animal sciences and received honorable mention for the National Center for Women and Information Technology award; and Mason Buxton, who received third in medicine and health sciences. From St. John the Baptist, John Flanagan earned third place in earth and planetary science; and Sydney Ross received honorable mention for the National Center for Women and Information Technology award. l

PLAYING THE GIFT CARD GAME By Joani Taylor

My hubby is on an organizing quest. Well… let me rephrase. He has decided it’s easier to spring clean the garage than it is to continue to listen to me babble on and on about it. While I maintain that the best way to go about this task is to simply host a yard sale and then take the money we gain to go buy some new shoes, the hubs has put the kibosh on that plan. Instead, he has determined that it will take multiple trips to the home improvement store for pricy organizing solutions, and may even require some specialized tools. This past weekend, he came home with a rather long list of supplies needed, with a very high estimate of what it would cost for him, to achieve my dream of an organized and tidy garage. While I don’t see how putting yet more stuff in the garage will solve the problem of too much stuff in the garage, I have hit a state of desperation from the embarrassment it causes when I park my car, should my neighbors get a glimpse inside. After much discussion, we compromised on a shorter list of supplies that did not include the purchase of yet another specialized tool, with the stipulation that we use a few of my special savings tricks. So, the hubs was off to get started on his weekend

project. “Make sure you use a gift card!” I shouted to him as he headed out the door. “Wait a minute, what did you say?” he asked. “What gift cards? No one has given us any gift cards.” “Stop by Smith’s first and buy one,” I instructed. “That way, you’ll get gas points for the gift card purchase and we’ll save some money the next time we buy gas. Plus, this week they have a coupon for 4x’s more points. You’ll need to load that coupon on

the Smith’s Shoppers card first. You can do that from the mobile app. Oh, and remember to pay for the gift card with our credit card so we can get the travel points,” I added. “Plus, when you walk into Smith’s today, open the Shopkick app; you’ll get bonus points when you do. We are just 100 points away from getting a free Chili’s gift card. That way we can go out tonight for dinner. Chili’s sent out coupons, so it’s a double dip.” “Let me write this down,” my hubby replied, with a confused look. “After loading the Smith’s coupon, I buy the Lowe’s gift cards and remember to open the Shopkick app to get enough bonus points to get a free Chili’s gift card, so that you can use a coupon at Chili’s to buy dip? Why don’t you just buy dip at Smith’s?” All kidding aside, learning to play the gift card game can be confusing, but it will save you a bundle and it’s fun when you know how. Next month, I’ll share some of my favorite tricks for getting discounted, and even free, gift cards so you can play the gift card game, too. Until then, I’m off to admire my newly-organized garage. We saved so much money on it, I might use a gift card and go buy that new pair of shoes after all. Keep your frugal on, my friends. l

rangetheory Fitness, the first in Utah, which opened at The District in October, is receiving rave reviews from local fitness fans. Orangetheory provides a unique, fun, total body workout. “It’s a wildly popular fitness concept,” Owner Dave Morrocco says. “Unlike other facilities where members know they need it but dread the workout, our members become addicts. They want to come as much as they can.” That fun is also backed by science. Members receive heart rate monitors and both their heart rate and calorie burn is displayed on a big screen, providing them with extra motivation to push themselves to their personal best in their workout. The workout, which incorporates at least 12- 20 minutes of elevated heart rate-producing intervals, also leads to an afterburn effect, with an increased calorie burn for 24 to 36 hours after exercising. At Orangetheory, results are immediate with bodies changing right before members’ eyes. Members who’ve been frustrated by a lack of success at other gyms in reaching their fitness and weight loss goals are thrilled

with how fast it’s happening. “We see tremendous results,” Dave says. But “this is not a get-skinny-quick program; it’s a lifetime be-fitand-healthy program.” In addition to the workouts, Orangtheory Fitness offers a six-week Weight Loss Challenge each quarter. The female winner of the last challenge lost 28 pounds. The male winner lost a whopping 42. And, unlike the big box gyms, the atmosphere at Orangetheory Fitness is warm, inviting and family-friendly. “It’s a very personal experience. Along with the great workout, people feel like they come here to see their friends,” Dave says. With everything from pre-paid packages to monthly memberships, Orangetheory Fitness has something for everyone wanting to lose weight, get in shape or just take their fitness routine to the next level. Orangetheory Fitness is located at 11516 South District Drive, Suite 600 at The District in South Jordan. Phone: (801) 758-0500. www.facebook.com/OTFsouthjordan
