CrossFit Gym Raises Money to Help Victims of Human Trafficking By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

All of the throwdown competitors gather after raising money to help victims of human trafficking. —CrossFit OUR

“We saw the girls go from being captives to freedom. It was eye opening and life changing.”

I

t’s CrossFit for a cause. CrossFit OUR, located just off Bangerter in Draper, is a CrossFit gym that raises money for Operation Underground Railroad (OUR), a nonprofit that rescues victims from human trafficking from all over the world. Gym manager Drew Rykert owns a CrossFit gym in Saratoga Springs where OUR founder Tim Ballard attended. Ballard approached Rykert, asking if he and his wife wanted to be a part of his newly founded nonprofit that rescued women and children from human traffickers. “Three months later, we found ourselves in Colombia rescuing children,” Rykert said. Rykert said Ballard and his team did the groundwork for the operation. It was Rykert and his wife’s job to pose as a host and hostess of a party in Colombia where three or four groups of girls and women were brought to the party to be prostituted. Rykert and his wife were in the back of the building with the girls while Ballard and his team were in the front of the building talking to the various pimps and “Johns,” or the men who wanted to purchase the women and girls. “Once money was exchanged, Tim signaled the local police and they were all arrested,” Rykert said. “We saw the girls go from being captives to freedom. It was eye opening and life changing.” While Rykert and his wife are part of the jump teams that only focus on the specific operations, OUR stays with the girls to help them recover, receive resources and help them

break the cycle of abuse and exploitation. Since then, Rykert has gone on another operation to Colombia and his wife has gone on to five more in South America. Rykert believes he was approached to help with operations because of his lifestyle and the CrossFit community, since CrossFit is about being in the best possible shape, not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. “They’re taking healthy individuals who can handle themselves in uncomfortable situations and someone who is comfortable leaving the country,” Rykert said. He also explained the individuals need to have a level head in these situations because their covers can’t be blown until it is certain there is enough evidence to arrest the pimps and Johns. “You have to put yourself in a different frame of mind. You can’t have hot heads. You have to keep your wits about you,” Rykert said. “You also have to be optimistic about life, optimistic that these girls will accept the new life we can offer them.” Six months after his first operation, Rykert was approached by Ballard about doing a fundraiser for OUR that centered on CrossFit. CrossFit OUR held a Slave Stealer Throwdown, a CrossFit competition where CrossFit champions from around the world, including the famous Rich Froning, would compete and raise money for OUR. All the proceeds from the competition went back to

OUR. “Once the momentum was built up, the idea was how can CrossFit continue to work to help this cause,” Rykert said. CrossFit OUR is currently working toward a 100 percent model where the forprofit business would help cover the costs for the nonprofit. Any money donated to the OUR side does not go toward the businesses side; rather, the money used from membership fees at the gym go toward helping OUR. The gym is also used as a place where the operation members or “jump team” can work out and train. All the equipment in the gym was anonymously donated by an individual who wanted to see the 100 percent model come to fruition. CrossFit OUR continues to do quarterly events to raise money for OUR. These include 5Ks, local CrossFit competitions, bike rides and triathlons. The team also has a movie called “The Abolitionist,” which was screened in theaters across the country in May and showed what OUR is all about. Rykert believes having the OUR side of the business has really drawn people to his CrossFit gym. “It’s more than just getting a workout,” he said. “It’s a community united by a cause.” CrossFit OUR is located at 13648 South 200 West Draper.

or a city of its size, Draper is a relatively low-crime community. However, crime does happen, typically in what the Draper police call “crimes of opportunity” — stealing a purse from a car, removing bicycles from open garages and even entering people’s homes while they’re out in the backyard. With approximately 40 officers to 45,000 residents, the Draper police work diligently fighting crime, but can’t be everywhere at once. That is why the Draper Police Department encourages residents to get involved and is promoting the Neighborhood Watch program at a free informational event Friday, June 17, from 7–8 p.m. at the LDS Stake Center outdoor pavilion, 13400 South and 1300 East. All are welcome, but no pets, please. The Neighborhood Watch event will also provide a chance for the Draper police to show off the skills of their new K9 police teams. The K9 teams will offer police-dog demonstrations on suspect apprehension and a narcotics search. Along with the demonstration, there will be booths with information on Draper’s Neighborhood Watch program, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Communities that Care, a substance abuse

prevention program. The Neighborhood Watch program promotes the idea that residents are the eyes and ears of the community. Commitment to residents is minimal: all that is needed is awareness and a willingness to report suspicious circumstances. That might entail notifying a neighbor if their garage door is open at night, locking the front door when in the backyard and reporting suspicious vehicles moving through the neighborhood with no apparent destination or without lights. Neighbors can form a watch program with assistance from the Draper police and learn about the newest crime-fighting app called ICE BlackBox. The smartphone app makes it easy for residents to document and report suspicious circumstances with just a touch on their screen. New neighborhood signs reading “Neighborhood Watch Now: All Phones Armed with Mobile Video Surveillance” can be installed in the neighborhood, too.

he Draper City Council approved both the local consent for a full-service alcohol license and the transfer of a dining club license to Salt Flats Grill and Brewhouse during its May 3 meeting. The unanimous decision would allow the restaurant to continue pursuing the liquor license with the Department of Alcohol Beverage Commission. The dining club license will be transferred from Toscano, 11450 South State State, to Salt Flats Grill and Brewhouse, 1122 Draper Parkway. A dining club license with a fullservice alcohol license would allow Salt Flats Grill and Brewhouse to serve beer, wine and various spirits in the restaurant, as long as the food sales make up at least 60 percent of the sales. Community Development Director Keith Morey explained to the council the Salt Flats Grill location is not within 200 feet of a park, church or school, which would automatically disqualify it from being allowed according to state law. It also doesn’t require a variance from the city since it’s not within 600 feet of one of those locations. “There was a question. Across the street there is a church. The 600-foot line does touch

the corner of the property. There was a little bit of confusion about that. The 600 feet is not measured ‘as the crow flies,’” Morey explained. “It’s measured by the most direct route that you’d take from the front door of the business to get to where this is.” In the case of Salt Flats Grill and Brewhouse, there is no direct crossing on Draper Parkway. In order to cross the street, a person would have to walk down to the end of the block and come back up to the church. “By the time you do that, it’s more like 1,800 feet,” Morey said. “So even though it looks like a violation, it’s not and that’s very specific in the state statute.” Morey explained the owners of Toscano

have discovered they are not making full use of the liquor license they have the way they would like to and that’s why they want to transfer it to the Salt Flats Grill. Morey also explained the grill is looking into potentially opening a microbrewery at that location. The city council has already approved the idea of having another microbrewery in Draper, though didn’t specify it would be at Salt Flats Grill. “From my understanding, they plan on making some pretty incredible improvements to that location,” Morey said. “It should be a nice addition to our community.” Morey also said if approved, the city is not adding a license but just transferring it so all the license numbers would stay the same. The applicant, Jeremy Ford, was present at the meeting and explained Toscano will keep a restaurant license. The design of Salt Flats Grill will be centered on race cars to fit in with Draper and the Salt Flats. “It should be a really interesting draw into the city,” Ford said. “We think we’ve brought together something special.” The consent was approved unanimously after no public comment. l

Medical Services Added to Historic Building Use By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

T

he Draper City Council approved a change to the municipal code that would allow historic buildings to be used for medical services. The unanimous decision was reached during the council’s April 19 meeting. Before the change, historic buildings could only be used for eight types of businesses: bed and breakfast inns, cultural services, a general office, personal care services, personal instruction services, reception center, a general restaurant or an antique store. These businesses are only allowed with a conditional use permit. “We feel that allowing medical use to be a candidate for use in a historic building provides more opportunities for historic buildings to be redeveloped,” said Dennis Workman, a planner for the city. “We feel it is a good change to the code.” The request for the change came from a specific historic building whose owner wished to turn it into a medical office. Workman explained in addition to that specific building, there are 18 other historic buildings that the change could potentially impact. Workman also explained the definition of medical services. “Medical services is an establishment that provides therapeutic, preventative or corrective personal treatment services on an out-patient basis by physicians, dentists and other practitioners of the medical or healing arts, as well as the medical testing and analysis services,” Workman said. The Draper Planning Commission voted four to one in recommendation for the change. Workman said the one dissenting vote felt the medical services use could be

a little too intense for a residential area. He then explained that’s where the conditionaluse permit comes into play. Before a permit is granted, the planning commission would examine how intense the impact would be on the surrounding community. Councilmember William Rappleye had a question about conditional-use permits, whether businesses can be screened out. Workman explained businesses can’t be screened out per se but conditions can be required by the planning commission. It was also explained that use of a historic building requires the owners not to change or alter the façade of the building and requirements must be met to keep the historic features of the building. During the public comment, resident Vincent Simmons asked for the support of the council for the change to allow medical services in historic buildings. Simmons explained he bought a Victorian home in 1979 and restored the home. “After hundreds of thousands of hours, to me, it’s a jewel in the community,” Simmons said. After the death of his wife, he remarried and he and his current wife wish to move. “Opening this zoning will help bring in more people from medical professionals. We’ve had a lot of requests and a lot of people looking at it for the last three months,” Simmons said. “They would need this zoning.” Councilmember Alan Summerhays complimented the staff on adding the change to the allowed uses for historical buildings. l

Hale Centre Theatre Announces 2017 Line-up, Completion Dates for New Theater By Chris Larson | chris@mycityjournals.com

H

ale Centre Theatre Vice President Sally Dietlein announced the 2017 performance schedule and estimated completion dates for their new theater at a media tour of the construction site on May 4. The 460-seat proscenium thrust currently titled “The Jewel Box” is slated to show “Forever Plaid” starting Sept. 1, 2017, according to a statement from Hale Centre Theatre. The theater will house 1,360 seats with six inches more legroom than the Hale theater location in West Valley City, Sally said. The larger, 900-seat “theater in the round” style main theater will open with the play “Aida” on Nov. 16, 2017, according to the same statement. “This kind of a world-class premier facility is being built for the actors who live, breathe and work here in Utah — where they reside with their families, where they learned their craft and where they want to be,” Sally said. Hale Centre Theatre Annual Fund Development Director Quin Dietlein said the nonprofit has the goal to pay back the $42.7 million bond in 10 years after the completion of their new theater at 10000 South and Monroe Street. He also said the “firm” price tag for the new Hale Centre Theatre facility is $65 million,

but acknowledges there is still a margin of error for exact costs as the project continues. “We look at it is a big mortgage. It’s a lot happier place to live if you are not living under a super heavy mortgage payment,” Quin said. City documents note that the Hale has 30 years to pay the bonds with 5.5 percent per annum back to the city. Quin said donors have already raised about $18 million and he is considering selling naming rights for both the theaters, in addition to ticket sales. Sally said the 2017 entertainment season was sponsored by Mountain America Credit Union. “We’re still chasing money,” Quin said. “The fun thing that we get to do is talk to people who believe in the project and believe in the benefit to the community.” The 130,000-square-foot theater will house year-round performances. Layton Construction Executive Vice President Jeff Beecher said the facility, designed by Beecher Walker and Associates, will require 970 tons of rebar, 1,617 tons of steel and 7,700 yards of concrete. Beecher said about 3,000 yards was poured Wednesday. The concrete exterior walls will be 18 inches thick and soundproof. l

The new Hale Center Theatre will overlook both Sandy City Hall and I-15. The project is estimated to cost $65 million.—Chris Larson, Sandy City Journal

Channing Hall Arts Night Becomes Interactive Experience By Julie Slama | julie@mycityjournals.com

I

t was more than the opportunity to see school children’s artwork on the walls. Families had the chance to solve a mysterious code, try their hands at dance and drama and even take a selfie at Channing Hall’s “Walk Like an Egyptian” arts show. “We wanted to make it an arts night where parents and children lingered, enjoyed it and made memories,” Channing Hall visual arts teacher Kara Aina said. “So we made it a way they would not only celebrate, but be engaged in the arts.” The April 14 evening showcased all the elementary students’ artwork and about 75 percent of the middle school’s student body’s artwork, most hung on black butcher-paper panels, with some ceramic tiles, pots and sculptures displayed on tables. About 250 people attended. “Students went through their portfolios and chose their favorite piece of artwork or they could bring it from home. It was their selection as it gave them more ownership in the show. Then, we’d group them by class in elementary and by grade in the middle school. A lot of the projects were based on IB [international baccalaureate] units and art history. The show had more variety and visually, it was much more interesting than if everyone displayed the same artwork,” Aina said.

Prizes, such as watercolor pencils, sketch pads, art kits and clay that students could fire and glaze, were given to art show winners. Near some of the artwork were hieroglyphic codes created by eighth-graders for families to follow, like a scavenger hunt to unravel and solve the mysterious saying. “It was challenging; even some parents really got into it and wanted hints to help their families solve the mystery,” Aina said. Eighth-grade volunteers, who were dressed as Egyptians, also helped with sarcophagus in an alcove tomb and helped created jewels, goblets and gold spilling out of treasure chests near the full-size mummy, which Aina created by casting a student. LED lights helped make the treasure glow. Students also could follow the Nile, which led them along an obstacle course where students could place snakes in baskets, hook some fish, and sling them in a basket,

which they placed on their head to cross the river. Parent Rachael McKinnon coordinated the activity. Above each classroom door where families entered, eighth-graders created curses, which hung as a warning. “There were fun ones as well as more serious sayings, such as ‘Death by Doritos’ or ‘Death to those who cross this tomb,’” Aina said. In the classrooms were activities for art show goers to try, such as creating trading cards, testing art techniques, learning dance and trying their hands at drama. With an Egyptian playlist that featured Middle Eastern music, Egyptian dance moves were taught by Kalli Parkin and the drama workshop was created by Sammy Stone. “The workshops were big hits as were the trading cards that allowed students the freedom of deciding what medium they wanted to use

and test it, maybe taking it to another level,” she said. A science, technology, engineering, arts and math workshop that allowed students to learn more on Chrombooks about Egyptian subjects such as hieroglyphics and Scarab beetles was available to research. It was overseen by school librarian Missy Badberg. The night included dance team, band and orchestra performances, face painting, temporary tattoos and a chance to take a selfie with Egyptian headdress, snakes, baskets and other props with a backdrop of pyramids, thanks to the help of Emily Jones, who helped with the booth. “It was a fun theme, which tied into our sixth-grade curriculum. We thought it would be fun for the older students to refresh what they learned and for the grades approaching the subject to get an idea of what they’ll be learning,” Aina said. The arts committee consisted of six parents: Marissa Burridge, Emily Jones, Dulce Hollenbach, Susan Levin, Rachael McKinnon and Kalli Parkin as well as Aina, who planned the evening. Six student council members, 10 eighth-graders and 10 parents helped prepare and volunteer that evening. l

Willow Springs students learn how water is purified May 4 as part of the Fourth-Grade Water Fair, hosted by Jordan Valley Conservancy District, Water Pro and Draper City. — Julie Slama

W

illow Springs fourth-grader Estella Watson liked learning about how Jordan Valley Conservancy District and Water Pro cleaned water. “I saw how dirty the water was before and how clean it was afterward,” she said. “I had no idea how badly it was polluted as garbage would get in it. I think if more people knew how they clean it, they’d be more cautious about trash and things getting in the water we use.” Jordan Valley Water Quality Coordinator Jon Hilbert said that was one of the goals in having the day — to have students learn how they clean water and realize it is precious. “I hope they gained a greater appreciation where drinking water comes from and what goes in to disinfect it and kill bacteria,” he said. “A lot of students are amazed when they see how dirty it is and at the end, how much cleaner they have it.” During Water Week in early May, Estella was one of about 950 students from three public schools, two charter schools and one private school in or bordering Draper who attended the Fourth-Grade Water Fair, water education specialist Leighann Gilson said. “We pick fourth grade since it ties into their curriculum to study the water cycle and we talk about that, the water shed, water conservation and storm water conservation here,” Gilson said. “A lot of the students share the information with their parents so we’ve learned it’s the best way to reach the community on water education.” Before arriving, fourth-grade teachers receive a packet about the fair and subject matter to review with the class. They’re also referred to the online web program available through the American Water Works Association, Gilson said. Once students arrive, they are given booklets to complete as they rotate through several stations of demonstrations, hands-on activities, tours of water facilities and more. On May 4, one rotation included Draper Mayor Troy Walker addressing students about

the need to keep dogs out of the water shed of Corner Canyon. “Our city just passed an ordinance to ban dogs in the water shed area since some people didn’t pick up their dog’s poop in the snow,” Walker said. “When the snow melted, there was so much bacteria that we needed more clean water to dilute it — we ended up using more water and in turn, wasting water. There still are areas for dogs, but not in the water shed.” Many of Estella’s classmates were aware of the new city law, but for her, it was the first time she had seen the city’s mayor. “It’s cool to see the mayor and learn that he cares about water issues,” she said. Classmate Lachlan McKenna said it was the first time he learned about the dog issues in the canyon, as well as other ways to save water and keep it clean. “We need to take shorter showers, not have fertilizer or soap wash away [down the drains],” he said. “I learned [road] salt isn’t good either since it can harm living things.” The activities and lessons didn’t just end at the water fair; teachers were given booklets for continuing education and discussion in the classroom. Willow Springs teacher Melody Watson ties in drawing the water process and a writing assignment with the water cycle unit. “We talked before we came as a review, but now it’s an assignment for these students to teach their families about how they filter water and what we can do to take care of it,” Watson said. “This field trip makes it more fun, with engaging games and hands-on activities as well as a chance to see two different ways that our water is cleaned.” Willow Springs parent Julene Judd, who chaperoned a group of students including her son, Kaleb, said that the practical field trip was a valuable lesson. “It is nice to know the resources around us and what people do to make it convenient for us to have tap water at our fingertips,” she said. “It’s given us a greater appreciation what we have and what we need to do.” l

Juan Diego Summer Camps Aimed to Inspire, Teach Participants By Julie Slama | julie@mycityjournals.com

J

uan Diego Catholic High School will offer summer camps in science, multimedia and sports to help teach participants skills as well as inspire them to become more involved in the activities. “Parents are looking for students, young kids to older kids, an educational learning opportunity and a way to keep sharp during the summer, and Juan Diego is offering summer learning that is fun, exploratory without homework, where they can be intrigued and want to do more,” Juan Diego Director of Advancement Molly Dumas said. For more than eight years, Juan Diego’s Academy of Sciences has offered Explorations in Science Summer Camp for middle school students. Themes change yearly, but this year’s studies will include ecosystems, physics, engineering, chemistry, environmental science and astronomy. The day camp will run from Monday, June 6, through Friday, June 10. “Students can be intrigued by science, get inspired and learn more about what interests them,” Dumas said. Vicky Simpson, who coordinates the camp, said the camp started since teachers identified several sports camps, but not many where students could explore the science field. “This is science without taking notes from a book or having a quiz. It’s a chance to explore different fields through hands-on activities,” she said. “We want them to see the science and math is everywhere and that through this inquiry and exploratory camp, science is fun.” Teachers from several different schools as well as the University of Utah College of Engineering help decide the curriculum. New this year will be the study of ecosystems, where students learn adaptation, classification and identification of plant specimens from Utah habitats including wetlands, forests and deserts. Campers will learn about native fish and estimate populations of organisms through a simulation of capturerecapture method.

Ecosystems will come into study when the campers study environmental science, learning that Utah produces 113 percent of the national average of trash daily, Simpson said. Through a field trip to the Trans-Jordan Landfill, students will learn about recycling and the environment. Other field trips include learning about space and teamwork at the Discovery Space Center in Pleasant Grove and studying physics with light and optics and application of waves at Laser Quest. “Students will learn a lot about problem solving as they’re given a scenario and need to react and think on their feet. Both the space camp and engineering have been popular with the campers in the past, so that’s why we brought them back. With engineering, students will learn problem solving as they work together in construction and design, testing, redesigning and retesting. It’s real-world application they’ll experience,” Simpson said. The week will include chemistry, such as learning the composition of money through experiments. “Some of the kids explore branches of science for the first time and really take an interest in it. It has inspired some students to look deeper for science fair ideas,” she said. The camp is supported through the Skaggs ALSAM Foundation, which subsidized camp tuition. For the week, the cost to participants is $150. Three sessions of the Soaring Eagle All Sports Camp will be offered beginning June 6 for boys and girls ages five to 11. Each session is one week, Monday through Friday, and runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The camp will be offered in two locations: Juan Diego and St. Vincent de Paul School in Murray. The cost is $150. “The sports camp helps kids stay active during the summer. It’s understandable for parents to plug in a movie or give the kids a device since they have so few days off, but this camp will engage participants to learn the rules of sports, team building and

sportsmanship. It will also give them a chance to be introduced to other sports,” Dumas said. Juan Diego will offer a digital multimedia camp offering 3-D printing this summer. “The camp will offer access to some new technology. As with all technology, when it is introduced at younger ages, it will become secondhand to them when they are in high school and college,” Dumas said. For details on the digital multimedia camp and registration materials for all camps, contact Juan Diego Catholic High School. l

Student Created Mural Installed at Lone Peak Hospital By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

The student created mural was commissioned by Lone Peak Hospital.—Kelly Cannon

“Lone Peak Hospital feels a need and a desire to have a partnership with the community. The best example of this is with art.”

R

epresentatives of Lone Peak Hospital unveiled a new mural on May 24 located in their main entrance. The mural was created by third grade students from Draper Elementary through financial support the hospital gave the school arts program. The third grade students were present at the unveiling and had a chance to see their work up on the wall. Kylie Welling, the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Teacher at Draper Elementary, explained she and others from the school approached the hospital asking for sponsorship of their arts program, specifically their arts program night. “In return, they asked us to commission a work of art that represented the community partnership,” Welling said. The third-graders were asked what they thought goes on in a hospital. Under the guidance of Welling, the students brainstormed ideas, drawing from past experiences and came up with examples of what they believed happens at a hospital. This idea came from a collaboration with Welling and Lone Peak Hospital CEO Mark Meadows. “It would come from children’s imaginations of what goes on in a hospital,” Meadows said.

They then were asked to come up with a picture that represented those experiences. Some examples included babies being born, x-rays being taken, people getting stitches and people visiting those who are sick. Some of the tiles contained only words such as “Hope and Love,” “Get Well Soon” and “I Hope You Feel Better.” The students then sketched out drawings on small tiles using dry-erase markers. Once the students were satisfied with their drawings, they completed them with permanent markers. These tiles were then coated with a clear finish and later installed on a wall in the hospital. “These kids worked really hard,” Welling said. “We’re very grateful for this partnership.” Meadows took time to speak to the third grade students, applauding their work. He also praised the partnership between the hospital and the school, saying everyone he’s encountered has been great to work with. “Lone Peak Hospital feels a need and a desire to have a partnership with the community,” Meadows said. “The best example of this is with art.” Meadows explained to the students the mural will be up on the wall forever and when

they get older, they can come back and see it. “You’ll be able to see it and say, ‘I did that,’” Meadows said. Third-graders were chosen for the art installation because of the ties to the common core. Third grade social studies focuses on learning about communities and partnerships within the community. “It was a natural fit for the third grade,” Welling said. Aside from the sponsorship from Lone Peak Hospital, the school receives funds for their art program through the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. Draper Elementary is the first public school in the city to receive grant funds from the foundation. Welling explained the art program is an integrated program, meaning art is used in conjunction with other subjects, such as social studies and reading, to enhance the students’ understanding. “It’s tremendous to have an art program and an art program that is tied into other programs,” Welling said.

Viewmont Students Stick It to Principal During Celebration By Julie Slama | julie@mycityjournals.com

F

ew principals can say they’ve been duct taped — willingly — to the gym wall by students, but Viewmont Elementary Principal Missy Hamilton can say she has been adhered twice now. “If it helps motivate students to raise more money, I’ll do about anything,” Hamilton said, who was duct taped once before at another school where she previously worked. “I’ve kissed a pig, spent the night on the school roof, been dunked in the tank, dyed my hair; it’s all to advocate for the kids.” The goal was to tape Hamilton to the multipurpose room wall once the school raised $1,000 for Pennies for Patients. On March 23, students did that, with the last piece of tape to hold her in place being put on by the principal’s fourth-grade daughter, Emily. “I almost felt suffocated, really hot, because all my extremities were strapped down. It’s a lesson in trusting those around you who make sure you’re secured,” she said, adding that first they gorilla taped her, then had students use about eight or nine rolls of duct tape. “After about 10 seconds, I could hear it start peeling, so I’m glad I had some helpers right there beside me.” However, students surpassed that fundraising mark to reach the next incentive of $2,000, which won students chances to throw pies in faculty and staff members’ faces on April 11.

Your Water source

Students ended up raising $2,271 for Pennies for Patients during a three-week period. The funds benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Olive Garden partnered with the drive and gave the class that donated the most funds a free meal. “We wanted to participate in this since it’s an area that has hit so close to home with one of our students, Carson Ross. It’s a cool thing for our students to participate to help him and have funds go to Primary Children’s Hospital for ongoing research,” Hamilton said. Carson, who in 2014 was diagnosed at age six with medulloblastoma — a tumor on his brain that caused him headaches and double vision and paralysis-like symptoms on the right side of his face — spent part of first grade at Viewmont in class and part of it at home. Now, Hamilton said he’s on the mend and attending class regularly. Sixth-grader Sammie Sofonia, who got to help tape her principal to the wall, said she knows the donations that were brought in will be put to good use. “I know it will help our student, and other schools that may have students with cancer — and in general, a lot of people,” she said. Classmate Brooke Johnson said that she knows the funds will help families. “It would be sad to lose a family member so I know this will help try to save those who are sick,” she said.

Despite feeling like she was suffocating, Viewmont Principal Missy Hamilton is all smiles as she will do “just about anything” to help students succeed in reaching their goals. This was an incentive to help them raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fundraiser. — Julie Slama

The March 23 assembly also included singing their school song, “Soar,” which was lead by student leaders. “It’s a way we bond together as a community and build culture to do great things with our school, families and friends,” school social worker Cherran Zullo said. “It’s a way it unites us.” Fifth-grader Nicole Ballou said she’s

Juan Diego Captures Its First Boys Soccer Title

BAD BACK?

By Ron Bevan | ron@mycityjournals.com

This year’s Juan Diego soccer team celebrates the school’s first boys soccer title in history. The Soaring Eagles capped off an undefeated season with the state 3A title. –Rob Bevan

I

t may have been a senior-laden team that pushed Juan Diego’s boys soccer team to the state 3A championship game, but the closing minutes were saved by the heroics of a sophomore. ​Sophomore goalkeeper Martin Kelly stopped a short-range header from a Snow Canyon forward in the waning minutes of the state 3A championship game Saturday, May 14, at Alta High School. The stop secured a 1-0 Juan Diego victory, capping off an undefeated season with the Soaring Eagle’s first boys soccer title. ​“This has been a long time coming,” Juan Diego coach Scott Platz said after his first title in 10 years at the helm. “This team worked hard all year and deserve all the accolades they are now receiving.” Juan Diego set a target on themselves ​ as the team to beat long before they entered Region 11 action. The Soaring Eagles scored 21 goals while giving up only two during the preseason, then stormed through region action with an additional 39 notches, again only giving up two goals. Juan Diego finished the regular season with a 13-0 record, holding 10 opponents scoreless. ​Although just a sophomore, Martin was a key part of the 18-0 undefeated season Juan Diego posted. Martin was in the net for the bulk of those games and recorded 13 shutouts. ​“[Martin] made the saves when he needed to, but none was bigger than that last one,” Platz said. “He had a lot of help from a strong defense in front of him.” ​Martin’s defense was anchored by seniors Woodey Greer and Julien Williamson. ​“[Woodey and Julien] have played next to each other for three seasons,” Platz said. “They feed off each other and react as one.” ​A formidable trio of midfielders in Brandon Sands, Garrett Albright and David Hurtado helped keep the defense strong while helping transition to the offensive side of the game. Up front Juan Diego relied on three ​ forwards who all put in 10 or more goals

this season. Jered Mariani (16 goals), Ruben Castillo (15 goals) and Michael Digeronimo (10 goals) provided the bulk of the firepower for the Soaring Eagles. ​“The big thing about this year was the experience returning,” Platz said. “We basically had seven starters return in the same positions they played last year. The people filling in to the graduated positions also had a lot of experience. For the first time we really didn’t have a weak link. We could go deep into our roster without losing our play style.” Juan Diego returned nine seniors to ​ this year’s squad. Six of the seniors were starters, while the other three played important supporting roles. “We have a great senior class that gave us great leadership,” Platz said. ”They were so task driven. They knew what they needed to do and they couldn’t be shaken off their ultimate goal.” ​Platz knew the team would be special early on. The returning players had lost in the semifinals last year to eventual 3A champion Dixie. The players returning used that as a means to regroup for this year’s run. ​“This group constantly go together to play on the weekends,” Platz said. “There was great chemistry on this team. As a coach with this group it was important to know when to coach them and when to stay out of their way because they knew each other so well.” ​Juan Diego entered the state tournament with a 6-1 win over Union, behind Ruben’s three-goal hat trick. A 3-0 shutout over Desert Hills in the quarterfinals set up another semifinal with Dixie. This time the Soaring Eagles dispatched the Flyers with double overtime 1-0 win. ​Brandon scored the winning goal in the championship game when, on a free kick, he put the ball in play quickly, catching Snow Canyon’s defense unprepared. Brandon’s kick found the back of the goal before Snow Canyon could react. Juan Diego’s stingy defense allowed the lone goal to hold up. l

Corner Canyon Goes to First State Baseball Tournament By Ron Bevan | ron@mycityjournals.com

​B

aseball play at Corner Canyon has improved dramatically in just three years. Once the new kid on the block and subject to a bit of bullying, now the Chargers are letting their bats do the talking. “Our offense carried us throughout this ​ season,” Corner Canyon baseball coach Daron Connelly said. “We hit the ball extremely well this year.” ​The offense has carried Corner Canyon into the state playoffs for the first time in the school’s three-year history. A 16-8-1 season culminated in a third-place finish for the Chargers and a berth into the state 4A tournament. ​“It was one of our goals this year, to make the state playoffs,” Connelly said. “Obviously our top goal was to win region. If that’s not your goal, why even play? But we did finish third and made the state playoffs and I am happy with how our boys have played this year.” Corner Canyon’s 2014 inaugural season ​ produced just five wins, typical for a new school that usually begins with a small senior class, as did Corner Canyon. Last year’s team doubled the win column to 10. But the 2016 campaign brought with it ​ several players who had been on the team from the beginning. The experiences gained over the first two years produced a toughened Charger squad. Not only did the win column again jump

higher, but the team also battled throughout the losses, several of which could have been victories if not for a skip of a ball or missed play. ​“Timpanogos was undefeated when we got them,” Connelly said. “We played them pretty good, and hit the ball well. We just happened to hit right at people and then we left runners in scoring positions.” ​Connelly credits a tough go with Orem as a turning point for the Chargers. Corner Canyon dropped the three-game stand with Orem, but had played them close and lost one by only one run. ​“We were in it for all three games,” Connelly said. “We could have beat them in all three. We definitely out hit them. But we struggled on defense and made 18 errors. You can’t make 18 errors in three games against a good team.” ​The boys seemed to learn something from the losses. ​“We licked our wounds and regrouped,” Connelly said. “We then went on a little streak and won six straight games.” Connelly credits the leadership of his six seniors that have been on the team from the start. Seniors Brayden Erickson, Tommy Groskreutz, Braden Larson, Caden Lawson, Calvin Millich and Jake Perry were instrumental in keeping another fairly young Charger team focused on the team goals.

​Brayden shined on the mound for Corner Canyon, capturing five of the wins as a pitcher and losing only once. Calvin, as team captain, led the team in batting, hitting one home run, four triples and six doubles this year.

“Millage was a great team captain,” Connelly said. “He was the first one at practice and the last to leave. His hard work paid off as he had a .411 batting average.” l

Soaring Eagles Reign Supreme on Tennis Courts By Ron Bevan | ron@mycityjournals.com

C

onnor Kempin wasn’t going to let it happen again. The junior from Juan Diego had to put last year’s loss in the state 3A tennis tournament behind him and finish strong this year, for himself as well as his teammates. Connor’s rampage through the number ​ two singles bracket not only brought him his first state championship, but also secured a Juan Diego team victory. Connor lost only one of nine sets on his way to the title. ​“He played very well this year,” Juan Diego coach Arthur Miyazaki said. “He was focused all year long.” ​Connor wanted to make up for last year’s state run. Heavily favored in the 2015 number two singles bracket, Connor came into the tourney undefeated. His first two matches were relatively easy, but a drawn-out semifinal match played the same day as his final took its toll. Connor had to go into three sets to win the match, with two of the sets going into extra games. ​“His semifinal match took a lot of his energy away for the final,” Miyazaki said. “He trained harder this year so he could be prepared.” ​Connor easily dispatched his first three opponents in straight sets at this year’s state tournament. Facing Grantsville’s Matt Waldon in the title match, Connor dropped the first set, 3-6, but settled down and took the title with sets of 6-0 and 6-1. ​His win helped secure a two-point team

victory over Park City. But he was helped along the way by a second individual title for Juan Diego, as well as a runner-up. ​Number three singles player Ben Argilius, also a junior, gave up only three games on his way to the championship round. Ben then took a straight set victory over Park City’s Connor Burke to grab his second straight state title. ​It looked as if Juan Diego might have a third individual champion when Connor’s older brother, Ryan, stepped onto the court for the number one singles finals. Ryan, a senior already committed to joining older brother Brendon next year on Notre Dame’s tennis team, was already a three-time state champion. He was looking for a perfect high school career and took his first set, 6-3, over Bear River’s Steffen Rigby. But a second set shoulder injury forced Ryan to retire the match. ​“He was up a set and forced to retire with the injury,” Miyazaki said. “He was gunning for his fourth straight state title.” ​Although they didn’t win championships, Juan Diego’s doubles teams helped contribute points that ultimately secured the team title. The number one doubles team of seniors Rex Alley and Lucas Castro made it to the semifinals before losing out. The number two team of juniors Tyler Osha and Alex Miller earned a spot in the quarterfinals to also grab points for Juan Diego. ​It is Juan Diego’s third state tennis title

showed from our first match to the last.” ​Another run for a title is in the works as only three seniors were on this year’s team. However, only three players will be wearing soaring Eagle colors next year as Tyler’s family is moving out of the area. l

County Council Discusses Future of Equestrian Park

T

he Salt Lake County Equestrian Park may soon see some changes, thanks to the hard work of equestrian park users and the county’s parks department. During the county budget process last fall, I learned that the equestrian park operates with a roughly $1 million dollar subsidy from county taxpayers. I also learned of a litany of deferred maintenance items that hadn’t been funded and were causing problems for park users, including lack of adequate restrooms, and drainage problems near horse stalls. I started asking questions about whether this was the best use of taxpayer dollars and offered optimal value to our community. County voters have demonstrated that they value open space in our communities—a sentiment I share. Preserving places for our residents to enjoy outdoor activities is good for the physical and emotional health of those who call Salt Lake County home. The county subsidizes parks, on average, $5,000 per acre. The equestrian center on the other hand, is subsidized at about $7,500 per acre. Though the equestrian center generates some revenue (the operating budget is roughly $2 million, with about $1 million in revenue), it still is a significant cost to taxpayers each year to maintain. As I’ve worked to learn more in recent months, I’ve been extremely impressed with the users of the equestrian park who

have been helpful in outlining the value the park provides to the community, as well as working to identify ways we can improve the park and ultimately reduce the subsidy. We’ve been working through our public process to address the questions I raised, as well as the future of the park. The first part of that process is for the county parks department to finalize four different proposals for the future of the park. They include: status quo with maintenance improvements, an equestrian regional blend that removes the race track and adds soccer fields, an “enhanced” equestrian park that expands the functionality of the facility, and converting all of the land into a regional park with various sports fields. The council will review each of these scenarios and their corresponding costs, as well as ongoing operational costs under each scenario. This, coupled with a better understanding of the value the park provides, will equip the council to make the best decision regarding which scenario is best for the park’s future. We’ve been collecting a tremendous amount of public input thus far. I want to specifically thank each resident who has offered their perspective through the online survey as well as the town hall event we held at the park. Moving forward, I am committed to a few key principles. First, I remain absolutely committed to efficient and effective use of taxpayer dollars. With every project that this council

funds, we should ask whether the benefit to the community justifies the cost to the taxpayer. This principle was the primary motivator for my initial questions about the park, and remains a key focus. Second, we must maintain our practice of bringing key stakeholders to the table to work together to find a solution both the park users and county taxpayers find acceptable. The Equestrian Park Coalition has already shown tremendous initiative educating county officials—myself in particular— and offering possible solutions.The Mayor’s office has created an Equestrian Park Advisory board, comprised of county parks staff and equestrian park users. This board is instrumental in identifying viable options for the park’s ongoing future. Lastly, If this park is going to stay, then we as a county need to commit to investing in the park’s future. We will find areas to use taxpayer funds more efficiently, freeing up dollars for other needs, and ultimately reducing our ongoing subsidy of the park. Smart spending coupled with improved management will make a valuable difference​. This is a great example of how Salt Lake County residents, advocates, and elected officials can work together to find the best solution. I’m encouraged by the productive conversations we’ve had so far, and eager to see this important issue soon resolved. l

Draper Resident Recognized Nationally

E

ach spring, REALTOR® Magazine features 30 rising young stars in the real estate industry. In determining who makes this “30 Under 30” list, REALTOR® Magazine staff looks for candidates who are successful in the real estate business and have demonstrated skill, success, creativity, and leadership in their careers. The award from the National Association of Realtors is the nation’s highest recognition for young real estate agents and brokers. This year’s group of young professionals exemplify the ingenuity, dedication, and prowess that’s raising the bar in real estate today. Windermere Real Estate-Utah is extremely proud to welcome a local Draper resident, Scott Steadman, as the third “30 Under 30” honoree at their agency. Scott joins past honorees Lori Hendry (2003) and Grady Kohler (2008), as one of the industry’s best and brightest young professionals. At 14, Scott started Scott’s Neighborhood Landscaping to save up for a TV. Along the way, he built a thriving lawnmowing operation focused on customer satisfaction. “It was important to be on time for appointments, and I even sent handwritten thank-you notes,” Scott, now 29, recalls. “I knew if I did a bad job for my next-door neighbor, he wasn’t likely to refer me to his next-door neighbor. So it was all about taking care of people.” Some of those customers from his youth are his best real estate clients today. Those long-nurtured relationships

help explain why 70 percent of his business is from referrals. “It’s funny when some of my clients look back and say, “Man, I knew you when you couldn’t drive,’ ” Steadman laughs. “They know I’m not just putting a sign in their yard; they know they’re not just a transaction.” Realtor Magazine received nearly 400 applications for this year’s nomination. Fifty agents were chosen for further evaluation. In addition to business success, the judges sought real estate professionals with “community and professional leadership” and “compelling stories that bring to life innovative business strategies.” Suncrest, a community located within Draper, played a huge part in Scott’s submission and stood out to panel of judges, qualifying him as a hyper-local expert. The 30 winners were honored in the May/June issue of Realtor Magazine. Windermere Real Estate—a real estate company founded and based in the Windermere neighborhood of Seattle, Washington—was founded by John W. Jacobi in 1972, when he purchased an eight-agent office. Still privately held, it is now the largest real estate company in the Pacific Northwest, with over 300 offices and 7,000 agents. Five of those offices are located in Utah. Windermere Real Estate-Utah is honored to have Scott as part of their local Draper Team. l

There’s an app for that

I

f someone else tells me, “Here’s how to do more,” I might just rupture a spleen. (Someone else’s spleen, not mine.) I’m already trying to cram 29 hours of tasks into a 24-hour day. Experts recommend we spend our day evenly divided with eight hours of sleep, work and play. But experts are idiots. These Time Control professionals don’t take into account the 75-minute commute, the one hour spent finding lost keys and clothing items, the 10.5 minutes to make/eat breakfast, the 17 minutes showing my spouse some attention, and the one hour spent daydreaming about being rich, followed by 15-25 minutes of sobbing. And that’s not even dealing with kids. (Add an additional seven hours of chores to your day—per child.) Family apps are the latest thing everyone needs to keep their lives on track or you are so completely out of touch you might as well live in a Quonset hut on Neptune. If you don’t have at least five apps coordinating your daily activities, you are a failure. For new moms, Glow Baby tracks your child like a super-focused CIA agent, monitoring everything from how often your child poops (along with the consistency/

color) to how often your child cries (going on three years). I never once tracked my daughters’ poop . . . well, except that time I tracked it down the hall to a discarded and very full diaper. Cozi is a much heralded time management app that allows your family to share calendar items along with a journal for recording those heart-warming memories. Disclaimer: this app will not alter time to get you across town in less than 10 minutes after you forget your daughter’s softball practice. For the family chef, Food on the Table lets you create virtual meals and shopping lists using sale items at your local grocery store. But, this app does not come with a shopper who will purchase menu items, or a chef who prepares and serves your family a healthy dinner. (Sounds like frozen waffles for dinner again.) And for the (crazy) helicopter parents, MamaBear lets you follow your child’s every move, so no more hiding behind shrubbery with dark sunglasses and video cameras. You can monitor your children’s social media pages, their location, their use of swear words and ability to lie without even blinking. (Warning: you’ll discover your child is a sociopath. Because kids are.)

PEST CONTROL

PAINTING Intermountain Fertilizing

If you’re truly into documenting your baby’s bowel movements while virtually preparing a five-course meal no one will eat before checking the tracking device on your teenager’s car, then these apps are for you. But if you’re tired of all the techno-hoopla, I’ve created apps for normal people. I call them RealAPPs. BlackOut shuts down all the power in your house and car, forcing everyone to stay home in their pjs, eating sandwiches and playing old-school board games. GuiltAway gives you permission to forgive yourself on a weekly, daily or hourly basis. MomResponse has preset answers, sent through text messaging, to all those repetitive questions. RealRecipes will create meals from whatever you have in your fridge/pantry. (Spaghetti Cheetos Ritz Cracker Casserole, anyone?) NoGo sends an automatic “NO” whenever someone asks you to volunteer/bake cupcakes/ babysit/garden. Once you download the RealApps, you can kick back and not worry about high-maintenance tracking any more. And you can punch those “Here’s how to do more” people in the spleen. l

“Following a Big Confession, Dr. Smith Changes his Story” Why the Real Truth Finally Came Out...

Dear Friend-

that it worked for me as well… I now feel great.

Over the past 13 years, I’ve sent out literally millions of flyers with a picture of my family and usually I’m in there somewhere. I shared personal details of my back pain, my struggles with weight gain, and how I watched my cute wife get in shape by running. I shared my drama of trying to run to get healthy, but how my low back and knees didn’t agree with the running thing…and ultimately how this led me to discover how awesome Chiropractic care can deal with problems like mine. The long and short of this journey is that I eventually lost the weight, ran some marathons, and completed the 7 years of college required to become a Chiropractor.

So Why Do I Share this… I Think most People WANT to know that with a serious spinal problem, there are more options than just popping pills, or surgery, or just getting a bunch of chiropractic or physical therapy treatments to manage pain…they want solutions.

But Here’s What I Didn’t Tell You… As time passed I continued to do what I could to be healthy, such as exercise and get regular chiropractic treatments. But as much as this helped me be active and pain free, I began to be aware of something that started bugging me. And the reality was I couldn’t stop it nor could I control it. The fact is…I WAS GETTING OLDER…time and gravity were creating problems for my back. To make matters worse, working as a chiropractor to fix other’s, ironically puts additional stress on my back. So, even with my regular personal chiro treatments and exercise, I started hurting again. And to be open and real, I struggled with it. Not because of the pain, but because I felt that maybe there was some contradiction that I was treating and teaching patients how to get rid of their back pain....but meanwhile I was having mine. The Real Truth is This... After taking X-rays of my back, I discovered that one of my spinal discs was in bad shape and that I also had arthritis. It took me only seconds

I THINK MOST PEOPLE WANT an honest skilled doctor who is good at discovering what is wrong and what needs to be done to give the best outcome…even if that means turning the case down and referring them out.

to see that my low back was going to need more than just chiropractic adjustments to get better. So as much I as believe in what chiropractic adjustments can do, I needed something more effective for this problem or else my back was going to be in serious trouble. If this took place 10 to 15 years ago, I would have just had to live it or roll dice with surgery. But the REAL TRUTH and the REAL BLESSING is now days there is great technology and time tested protocols that have excellent success with these types of serious problem. And the good news is that solution to my problem was already sitting in my office. We use powerful protocol that includes the LiteCure class IV non-surgical laser (to help reduce pain and stimulate healing), the DRX 9000 Spinal Disc Decompression, and a unique exercise program that stabilizes the surrounding muscles. This specific combination has literally helped hundreds of my patients with severe disc and sciatic problems. I’m happy to report first hand

Complete Spinal Exam (X-rays if needed)

& 2 pain relieving Treatments

I THINK MOST PEOPLE WANT clear directions with their treatment plans and clear financial options that are affordable with or without insurance. We are on most insurance including Aetna, Altius, Blue Cross, Cigna, Deseret Mutual, Educators Mutual, IHC Select Med, PEHP, UHC, and others. I have affordable cash plans. And Regardless of fault, Auto Injuries are 100% Covered by Auto Insurance.

We are Elite Performance Health Center. We are located at I-15 and Bangerter Hwy (13552 S. 110 W.). Don’t hesitate to call our office. The number is 801-302-0280… Thank you. —Matthew D. Smith, D.C.
