Draper Resident Celebrates 105th Birthday By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

S

urrounded by friends and four generations of family, Draper resident Mildred Olsen Del’Andrae celebrated her 105th birthday on Jan. 28. Del’Andrae has lived in Beehive Homes Assisted Living ever since its Memory Care Center opened three years ago. The center threw Del’Andrae a big party with music provided by the Salt Lake Crooners. Del’Andrae was the center of attention with a special birthday necklace around her neck and residents and family members wishing her a happy birthday. “My mom is an amazing woman,” Linda Maddera, the second oldest daughter of Del’Andrae, said. “She’s just a wonderful mother.” Maddera shared memories of her mother, remembering Del’Andrae taking her to Kress’s Five and Dime store. “We would get toast tuna fish sandwiches and hot fudge sundaes,” Maddera said. Maddera also said Del’Andrae traveled a lot. “When she was my age, 76 years old, she went to Egypt to visit my brother,” Maddera said. “She rode a camel.” According to a brief biography printed at Beehive Homes, Del’Andrae was born on Jan. 28, 1911, in Salt Lake City. Her first job was at Kress after she sneaked away from her grandmother and began working behind the counter. “I actually fibbed a little about my age to obtain my initial employment,” Del’Andrae said in the biography. During the Great Depression, she worked as a timekeeper and statistical clerk at the Postal Telegraph Office of Salt Lake City. There, she recorded all the reports and performed teletype when needed. She always considered herself lucky to have a job during that hard time. She married Louis Smith Newsom in 1934 and together,

they had two girls and one boy and raised them in Sugar House. In 1949, Louis unexpectedly died of cerebral hemorrhage. Del’Andrae raised her three children alone. She opened up a day care center in her home so she could earn money while raising her kids. Del’Andrae married Roy Del’Andrae in 1951 and gave birth to her youngest daughter in 1953. After their children were raised, Roy and Mildred moved to Holladay. After going out for breakfast, they would flip a coin to decide which direction they should drive, embarking on many road trips together. Roy died in 1977. The family has since lost count how many descendants Del’Andrae has. The last count took place five years ago when she turned 100. At that time, Del’Andrae had four children, 22 grand children, 47 great grandchildren and 24 great-great grandchildren. Del’Andrae attributes her longevity and good health to her sparing use of medications. “I have never, even to this day, been one to take any medications unless absolutely necessary,” Del’Andrae said. While it is unofficial, Del’Andrae’s daughter, Debbie Harmer, has talked to Draper City officials and according to their records, it is possible Del’Andrae is the oldest resident living in Draper. Del’Andrae is adored by Beehive Homes employees and is the only centenarian in residence. This was her third birthday celebrated at Beehive Homes. “When she wakes up in the morning, the first thing she does is have a big smile on her face,” Linnea Chinn, the general manager of Beehive Homes in Draper, said. Chinn said Del’Andrae has a very supportive family,

often visiting her a couple times a week. She also loves to have her hair and makeup done and is rarely seen without her diamond engagement rings. She also loves to hold dolls as a way of comforting herself. Chinn said when employees ask Del’Andrae how she got to live so long, she generally shrugs it off and says, “It’s no big deal.” l

Local Girl Scout Troop Prepping for Cookie Sales By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

A

local Draper Girl Scout troop is gearing up for this year’s cookie sales. Troop 2006 will be setting up booths at various retail stores, as well as selling door to door in their neighborhoods. Troop 2006 was established, coincidentally, in 2006 and consists of six girls who have been in the troop since its inception. Kelly L., a member of the troop, explained the purpose of the Girl Scouts. “It’s a program to get girls out of their comfort zone to be women of courage, confidence and character,” Kelly said. The Girl Scouts are perhaps best known for their cookie sales, their biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s also part of the Girl Scout program, teaching the girls goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics and people skills they can later use when they are adults. Sales from the cookies help send the girls to summer camps. One camp is TreFoil Ranch, a horse ranch located up Provo Canyon where girls can participate in horseback riding instruction, high and low ropes courses, archery, biking, hiking and other camp activities. There is also Camp Cloud Rim, located near Park City. Depending on the camp session, campers may participate in canoeing, sailing, kayaking, swimming, photography, pottery, rock climbing, hiking and backpack-

ing.

If the troop sells enough cookies, they can also achieve their destination goals where they can travel all over the world. In 2013, Troop 2006 went to California and visited SeaWorld to learn more about marine biology. Before the start of each cookie selling season, the troop gets together to discuss their

selling goals. Each girl sets a personal goal to sell around 300 to 400 boxes on average. Kelly has higher aspirations. “My goal is to sell 600 boxes,” Kelly said. “If I do that, I’ll be able to raise enough to work on my gold award.

Kelly joined the Girl Scouts because her two older sisters were also Girl Scouts. She described watching them led her to always wanting to be a Girl Scout. “I wanted to try new things and do all the things they were able to do,” Kelly said. Kelly said she loves being in the Girl Scouts because of the opportunities given to her. “I get to go to places I’d never get to go, learn so much more than I would in another program,” Kelly said. “It opens doors and gives so many more opportunities that I wouldn’t be able to get if I wasn’t in the Girl Scouts.” For more information, including how to join, visit http://www.gsutah.org/. l

Draper Team Earns High Honors at LEGO League State Championship By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

A

group of future engineers took high honors at the LEGO League state championship. The Draper-based team, called Bricktorrent, consists of five girls and two boys. The team qualified for the state tournament after winning at the regional competition. The team won in both the design of its LEGO robot and the project it developed. LEGO League is a robotics competition using LEGOs as the building materials. Each year, the national competition announces the theme the competition will be based around. This year, the theme centered on waste and recycling. “The teams compete on a 4-by-8-foot board with pre-set tasks. The robot has to solve the tasks,” Michel Bohn, the coach of the Bricktorrent team, said. “There is a base where the robot starts. Once it leaves that base, it has to be autonomous. If you have to go and touch it to fix it, you lose points. It’s important for the robot to be self-aware.” The tasks for this year included the robots having to sort LEGO waste into what is deemed recyclable and what isn’t, clean polluted water and other similar tasks. Bricktorrent’s robot, named “Tortellini,” was really good at running the sorter, a complex task where the robot turned a hopper in order to sort the recycling from the waste. The board is only one part of the competition. Another part is the project. Because the theme this year dealt with handling garbage and recycling, the team had to develop a project that would solve an issue related to that theme. The team designed and built a smart garbage can. The garbage can, affectionately called “Scrappy,” only gets picked up by a garbage truck when it’s full. “It emits sound waves from the lid and depending on how long it takes for them to bounce back determines how full it is,” Bohn said.

Bricktorrent LEGO League team shows off their trophies after winning the regional qualifying round.

The idea behind the smart garbage can is to reduce unnecessary trips by the trucks and thereby reducing carbon emissions. The third part of the competition is called Core Values. This part consists of a presentation given by the group, and a judge determines how the team worked together as a team. “The team values include being innovative and enthusiastic problem solvers,” Bohn said.

Bohn said while the group has won awards for its robot design and its project, they struggle with the Core Values presentation. “The Core Values is something we’re still trying to figure out,” Bohn said. “We need to figure out what is important to us and incorporate that better into our presentation. We’re also taking the advice from the judges.” The Draper team came together after Bohn was a judge for First Robotics, a similar program for high school schools which use metal and plastic to build their robots. “I judged for a number of years,” Bohn said. “My daughter [Gretta] would come with me to the events. She’d see these robots do amazing things.” One of the things Bohn likes about the LEGO League program is it offers a leadership role for everyone in the group. “They come up with different roles for a lot of different talents. Some come up with ideas. Some come up with presentations. Some just take pictures,” Bohn said. “We have a diverse team of different ages and gender. They all get along really well, and it lets us have fun.” While Bricktorrent did not qualify to continue on to the national championship, their robot was chosen to be on display at the South Towne STEM Conference to represent all of LEGO League. Bohn said the team will find out in the spring what the theme will be for the next competition. Regionals will begin in the late fall. “It’s really exciting to see the kids get so involved,” Bohn said. “They keep doing so much better. I’m really proud of them.” l

New Teen Coalition Asking for Support on Bill Regulating E-Cigarettes By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

A

new coalition of teens is asking various city councils to offer support toward a bill that would change regulations of e-cigarettes. The Students Against Electronic Vaping Coalition presented their proposed bill to the Draper City Council on Tuesday, Jan. 26. Cade Hyde, studentbody president of Davis High School and chair of the coalition, explained the bill came about after Michael Siler, CEO of Practical

Strategic Solutions, gave a presentation on e-cigarettes at the high school’s community council. Siler wrote the bill and, while it does not have a house number yet, Rep. Paul Ray will be presenting it during the 2016 legislative session. “What this bill will do is say that electronic cigarettes are a tobacco product,” Hyde said. “By saying that they are a tobacco product, it

Draper Journal

would mean that they would have the same restrictions that are on any tobacco product such as restrictions on advertising, online sales, how they are sold in stores, being locked behind the counter, what’s labeled on the ingredients of the e-juice and an added tobacco tax of 86.5 percent.” According to Hyde, 22,000 Utah students currently use electronic cigarettes. Hyde related a story of how some of his friends began using e-cigarettes as freshmen or sophomores. Hyde said these friends became addicted to the nicotine and now, as seniors, still use e-cigarettes and some have even moved on to harder substances. “What we see is e-cigarettes are a gateway drug. Getting addicted to nicotine leads to other hard substances,” Hyde said. “That’s what I’m seeing with my friends. That’s what we’re seeing all over the state. And this is a problem.” Currently, there are few regulations against e-cigarettes in the state of Utah. Hyde said because of the lax regulations, companies are able to tailor their advertising and products toward getting youth addicted. “They know they must addict our generation to stay in business,” Hyde said. “I don’t like that at all.” The statewide coalition led by teens in various high schools is presenting a resolution to their respective city councils asking for their support of the bill. “We’re asking you to sign it and adopt this resolution. By doing so, you’re supporting

our bill and our coalition of students against electronic vaping,” Hyde said. “We’re asking for your support, and another way for you to support us is to contact our legislators, especially speaker Greg Hughs. He’s really important to us, that he knows about this bill, and he knows that we’re supporting us, and we need you to contact other legislators as well.” Councilmember William Rappleye praised the group for its efforts and hard work. “I will certainly support your efforts. I applaud your efforts,” Rappleye said. “Having young people like yourselves so educated and so involved in this process is so critical because it’s going to affect your future more than mine.” Rappleye told the coalition to also look into medical marijuana bills being presented in the legislature as well. “I know they’re out there working on one of them. But I think it’s critical for people to understand what it is,” Rappleye said. “I think there are some provisions that I think can be good, but I think it can be abused as well.” According to the Utah Department of Health, one in four Utahns between 18 and 34 years old have tried e-cigarettes and 8.5 percent reported current use. In 2015, one in five students in grades eight, 10 and 12 reported to have tried electronic cigarettes. Twenty-nine percent of high school seniors reported to have experimented with e-cigarettes, while 13 percent said they had used them in the past 30 days. l

DRAPER AREA

Draper State of the City Boasts of Economic Growth By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

D

raper City Manager David Dobbins boasted of the city’s economic growth during the annual state of the city address. Hosted by the Draper City Chamber of Commerce on Feb. 3, the address highlighted both the growth the city has enjoyed and what the city would like to see happen when the Utah State Prison relocates. “It’s been a year where we’ve struggled to keep up with demand, and it keeps going,” Dobbins said. Dobbins talked about Vista Station, saying it is growing rapidly. Co-developed by the Gardner Company and the Boyer Company, the 175-acre property is located on the Utah Transit District Frontrunner Draper Station. It currently houses or will house Thumbtack, Solar City, Jet.com, Storagecraft, 1-800 Contacts, Progressive Leasing, TruHearing and Yardi Systems. Also, eBay has its own 200,000-square-foot facility, while EMC and Academy Mortgage are also building campus buildings. Hilton Homewood Suites is in the process of development and will have 192 rooms. Dobbins also announced the Larry H. Miller Group is planning on building two new dealerships, plus 100,000 square feet of office space on 11400 South and Lone Peak Parkway near the Karl Malone Toyota. Dobbins said Larry H. Miller has not officially announced its development plans. Plans for the new Draper Recreation Center are moving forward. Dobbins said city officials have applied for $22 million in ZAP funds and are “confident it will be approved.” Salt Lake County residents will vote to approve a bond that will fund the new ZAP funds. The Salt Lake County Council will then vote on which projects will receive funding. The new center will be located near the Draper outdoor pool in South Mountain Park. If the bond is approved, construction will start next year.

“This will be more of an aquatic center,” Dobbins said. “It will have a lap pool, a pool for kids, a competition pool for the high school and those who like to do laps.” Dobbins also announced Maverik is planning on building a new location on the corner of Minuteman Drive and Highland Drive. Dobbins said people always ask him why Draper is doing so well. “First of all, I think it’s because we have a great team. We have elected officials who support this. We have businesses who attract people. We have residents who participate in the community, and we have developers who participate,” Dobbins said. “It makes for a great place to do business.” Mayor Troy Walker spoke about plans for what will happen when the prison relocates. Walker explained the current legislature is working on purchasing land for the new prison site and will begin development. However, Walker said it will be four years before change will be seen at the Draper site. According to Walker, Envision Utah, a research-based think-tank, will receive funds from the state to study what should be done with the property. Walker reminded the audience the property is owned by the state and does not have to receive input from Draper as to how the property is developed. However, Walker said he didn’t believe that would happen. Walker said Draper’s vision for the property is mixed use, a combination of both commercial and home properties. “If it’s planned right, the potential is phenomenal,” Walker said. Walker praised the growth of Draper, both commercially and in regards to how city leaders are managing its properties. “We keep moving up in places to live,” Walker said. “Our future is bright.” l

Draper residents examine the details of the open space master plan.

A

huge crowd of Draper residents turned out on Feb. 9 to give their input on the proposed open space master plan. The city purchased the 4,500 acres in 2012 that runs from the point of the mountain to the Traverse Ridge Range. City officials were interested in finding out what the public would like to see done with the property. “Last fall, we held an open house to get ideas from the public of what they wanted to do with the space,” Brad Jensen, Draper project manager, said. “We gave those ideas to a steering committee who then got with a consultant.” The purpose of the open house, held at City Hall, was to receive additional input on what the steering committee and the consulting group had already developed. The casual meeting had displays set up all around the edges of the council chambers, outlining the history, goals and plans for the open space. These plans include new parks with features such as ropes courses, disc golf and zip lines, improved trails and dog-friendly attractions. Members of the steering committee and the consulting firm were available to answer any questions. “We’re just trying to gauge what people like,” Jensen said. “If there is something they feel we’re missing, we want to know about it.” Those in attendance were given a survey they could fill out to explain what they thought of the plan. The survey is also available online at draper.ut.us/openspace. After all of the public input is received, the steering group and the consulting firm will collect the data and give a final proposal to the parks and trails department. It will then move on to the planning commission and then to the city council for final approval, though that is not expected to happen until later in the spring. Jensen said the most significant portion of the open space master plan is the effort to reduce user conflicts on trails. Over 80 percent of trails in Draper are multi-use, which can cause conflicts between the different people using the trails, including mountain bikers, hikers, hikers with dogs and equestrian riders.

These conflicts can also cause safety concerns. Jensen said if mountain bikers are speeding down a trail, it can potentially scare the horses. The plan is to create more single-use trails specifically for just mountain bikers or equestrian riders. There are other trails where bikers can only ride up one side and ride down the other. “We’re trying to create a balance,” Jensen said. Mayor Troy Walker was in attendance of the meeting and was blown away by the large turnout. “It is outstanding,” Walker said. “I’m very pleased with (the turnout).” While the city council has not been too heavily involved in the process so far, it did suggest a few ideas at the very beginning of the process, including adding parks with zip lines and ropes courses. While the finished product of all these plans is years in the future, Walker said the projects will be funded through the general fund. “The city council has talked about attaching a park fee to help pay for it,” Walker said. “It could be added to the water or garbage bill.” Walker emphasized these ideas were in discussions only and nothing official has been decided. Draper resident Shane Goodman was at the open space meeting with his wife after being informed by it by a local leader of the 4-H horse club. “She asked us to come down as horse enthusiasts to see how our particular interests were being addressed,” Goodman said. Goodman believed the study was pretty comprehensive and considered all of the interested parties. “I’m going to go online and read the details more closely,” Goodman said. “But it looks like it was composed to include all of the interests.” To read a copy of the open space master plan and to fill out the survey, visit draper. ut.us/openspace. l

Juan Diego to Present ‘Peter Pan’ By Julie Slama | Julie@mycityjournals.com

OF TRUST Taking Care of

YOUR FAMILY’S NEEDS

EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

St. John the Baptist students will play the part of the Lost Boys when they join in Juan Diego Catholic School’s production of “Peter Pan” that will be performed on stage in March. — Jessa Brock

L

ast year when Juan Diego Catholic High alumna Jessa Brock approached theater teacher Joe Crnich with the idea of including puppetry in the musical, “Peter Pan,” he embraced it. That concept will take reality when the students take their school stage at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 3 through Saturday, March 5, and again, Monday, March 7 and Tuesday, March 8 at Juan Diego Catholic High, 300 East 11800 South, Draper. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children, and are available at the door or the week of the show in the administration office. Co-directing with Crnich is Brock, with Sammy Mora and Rori Phibbs as the assistant directors. Zach Groeblinghoff is the show’s music director; Shelti Thompson is the choreographer; Cara Pomeroy is the set designer; Juan Diego graduate Adam Day oversees sound design; Keaton Wren is overseeing costume and puppet design and dramaturgy and senior Alexandra Bowden is in charge of lighting design. Junior Brynn Duncan plays Peter Pan. Joining Duncan on stage as the Darling children are senior Sierra Mosses as Wendy; senior Jacob Moore as John; and fourth-grader Gabe Woods as Michael. “It’s a fun show, and we’re using as many kids in it as possible, from fourth grade through seniors here at the high school,” he said about his 100-member cast. “We’re really excited and have a lot of energy behind the creativity of this show.” Although the audience may be familiar with the Disney’s tale of J.M. Barrie’s classic “Peter Pan,” of a young boy who refuses to grow up, the Juan Diego production is based more on the book, Crnich said. “Our show is focusing more on what Peter sees in the nursery, Wendy’s imagination and the Darlings’ travels to Neverland,” Crnich said, adding that items the audience sees in the nursery — a stuffed crocodile, clothes, Nana — come to life and are transformed when they travel to Neverland. And the traveling of Peter and the Darling children is done through the puppets, he said. Brock said this gives students the opportunity to

learn puppeteering, a skill that many students have limited experience. “Puppeteering is a huge skill, and one that is utilized quite a bit in theater today,” she said. “We are using large flying puppets for the flight to Neverland, as well life-size handheld puppets for Nana and the crocodile. This not only allows us to put our own creative stamp on the show, but it allows these students to put it on their resumes as a special skill. This looks really good for students who are hoping to continue theater at the college level. They get to work with a professional puppeteer and learn to work beyond themselves as actors and artists.” Crnich said that is part of the learning process he wants his students to experience. “I really want to bring in experienced, qualified, vibrant directors and have our students step up to the challenge of puppetry and how it should be done. This is giving them that opportunity,” he said. Early in the production, cast members read the book and discussed ideas and concepts, some which has worked their way into the show. “It’s definitely a collaborative production where we have shared ideas, and they’re learning from one another as well,” Crnich said. Another challenge for the students is that there are no backdrops, just set pieces that create the Darlings’ nursery, Neverland, the pirate ship and other parts of the musical. The technical theater class of 18-20 students is responsible for building the set. Auditions were held in late December and the cast members read the script over winter break. In January, they began rehearsals five days per week after school. Their dress rehearsal will be Wednesday, March 3 morning when the cast performs for St. John the Baptist Elementary. Juan Diego theater students plan to compete with their one-act at region on Saturday, March 19. From there, they hope to advance to state in April. Last year, Juan Diego won first in state with their scene from “The Serpent.” l

Channing Hall Holds ‘Read Wars’ By Julie Slama | Julie@mycityjournals.com

C

hanning Hall kindergartners through fifthgraders spent 461,806 minutes reading over a three-week period in January. It was part of the school’s “Read Wars,” which is a reading incentive to have students improve their reading skills as well as enjoy reading, said organizer Heather Fehrenbach. “We used to participate in the Jazz Reading Incentive, but with our school having a break for a week in February, during their read-a-thon, it didn’t work as well as we liked, so we modeled our program after it and hold it in January,” she said. During the “Read Wars,” students may have been greeted by a Storm Trooper at the carpool drop-off lane, or they could have been part of one of the organized programs which featured Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Chewbacca as well as the storm troopers. For example, Fehrenbach said they had a “Read with a Storm Trooper” after-school program one day and another, they had a readoff between the dark and light or Jedi sides, featuring costumed middle-schoolers. “Star Wars” books were given to good listeners, Fehrenbach said. “We’d have six or seven books that had a darker theme or evil character versus those that didn’t and students listening to the books that were read out loud, would decide which one they liked better,” she said. “There were lots of cheers for the dark side.” The reading program, which ran from Jan. 6 through Jan. 27, had students tally the minutes they read or were read to outside of school. They also could listen to an audio book. Fehrenbach said teachers encouraged students to participate, and each week, they showed videos in classrooms to promote reading and recording their time spent reading. Each grade had a goal per week of how many minutes they should read, Fehrenbach said. For kindergartners and first-graders, they needed 245 minutes of reading each week. Second-and third-graders’ goal was 315 minutes and fourth-and fifth-graders were to read 385 minutes. One fourth-grade class had seven students who read more than 1,100 minutes one week, Fehrenbach said. Students who met their goal the first time were named Jedis. The second time, they became a Trainee and third week, a Padawan or knight. Each time they met their goal, they were awarded a bracelet, as well as at the two after-school reading activities. “Currently, we have 20 students on track to earn all five bracelets,” she said during the competition.

There was also a drawing for the classes who met their weekly goal — a Jedi training session from Aerobotics Gym in Draper — which Matthew Hoecherl’s morning kindergarten class won. More important, Fehrenbach said, was the improvement they have seen in students’ reading progress. “We already had five kindergartners move up one-to-two reading levels,” she said. Teachers gave awards to students who showed the most improvement and met the goal. Top readers in each class also were celebrated. Those most improved readers include Emma Housenick, Harper Adams, Zachary Stirling, Isabella Witte, Zac Boggess, Sam Fiuza, Anthony Keller, Jesse Hillesheim, Jay Barosso, Garrett Ryser, Natalia Mendoza, River Jones, Sawyer Johnson, Emily Moss, Kaden Roberts, Evan Bradfield, Phebe Balfe and Tyler Moffet. The top readers who were honored include Ashlyn Covington, Savannah Affleck, Sylvia Miller, Caden Park, Ryder Farnsworth, Clara Cannon, Canyon Bullock, Ashleigh Pester, Kaden Affleck, Adi Mahasenan, Milo Muhlestein, Simon Aina, Leah Cannon, Brighton Farnsworth, Paityn Burns, Rylie Whatcott, Aiden Worthley and Brayden Belnap. l

Corner Canyon’s Clark Named Music Educator of Year By Julie Slama | Julie@mycityjournals.com

F

ormer Wasatch Junior High band director, Paul Watson, was not only a musician, but a mentor. Corner Canyon High School’s instrumental teacher Randal Clark, who was recently named Utah Music Educators’ Association’s Outstanding Senior High School Music Educator for 2015, credits Watson for his love of music and teaching. “He’s the reason I’m doing what I’m doing,” Clark said. “Paul Watson won this award in the ‘90s for junior high teachers (and also won the UMEA’s Presidential Award this year) and is the best teacher I’ve ever seen. He has a natural ability to teach and his talent and personality motivated me. The way I teach is similar to his, by being honest and matter-of-fact, and if I can copy the best teacher out there, I can’t be too bad.” Clark who in his own right has received several awards, including the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Legacy Award recipient for excellence in music education in 2014 and the USHAA outstanding music educator last year, said he had no idea when he received a phone call from the UMEA 15-member board and learned he would receive the award for high school music teachers. “I had no idea that I was nominated and it’s a little embarrassing because all I do is set out to do the best job I can,” Clark said. “It’s nice that people notice and I’m getting recognized for it.” He said that it felt like the “Academy Awards” of teaching music, knowing he was nominated by peers when he was honored Feb. 5 at their state professional development conference. He was honored with a plaque. Clark, who has taught 18 years, the first 15 at Jordan High in Sandy where the program received top ratings at state

competitions for the bands and orchestras he conducted, and the last three years at Corner Canyon High. “People thought it was weird that I was leaving a program with so much success, but it has been a fun challenge to open a new school and establish a new program,” he said. Clark, in his own right, is an accomplished musician as he plays with the Utah Wind Symphony and directs the Utah Wind Symphony Youth Ensemble. He is also a member of the University of Utah jazz faculty and has conducted their wind ensemble and gives private lessons. At Corner Canyon High, he conducts about 145 students in jazz band, symphonic band, wind symphony, symphonic orchestra, string orchestra and percussion. “We’ve received superior ratings at competitions ever since the school opened and in band, that’s extremely hard. Of the 25 to 30 bands who advance to state, only six to seven, earn straight superior ratings, so I’m proud of these students who work hard,” he said. Having both schools he taught at receive superior ratings at festivals, region and state competition is part of why Clark was selected for the award, said Sharee Jorgensen, UMEA executive director. “He credits the students, but it’s also they way kids respond to him as he’s very motivating and inspiring and has had straight superior ratings at both schools,” she said. “He’s also a really good mentor to other teachers, has held workshops and volunteers and contributes a lot to music to the state and to UMEA.” Clark has been known to tour on saxophone along with other well-known performers such as Gordon Goodwin, Gerald Albright and Branford Marsalis, but he also plays his sax

occasionally in class. “Modeling is an important thing I do, and they know they can always see me play on YouTube, but being there, teaching them, motivating them to play and practice, and seeing their hard work pay off is part of the joy of teaching music,” he said. l

D J EDUCATION Corner Canyon Cheer Hits Routines at State

raper ournal

By Julie Slama | Julie@mycityjournals.com

Corner Canyon cheer squad practiced more than 1,000 hours, kept a 3.0 grade-point-average, performed community service, cheered on the school teams and competed in five tournaments before the state competition, where varsity placed second and junior varsity won its division. — Whitney Lunt

E

ither cheer teams hit the routine perfectly on the competition day or they don’t. That’s how Corner Canyon Cheer Coach Whitney Lunt describes the fierce competition in high school cheer. Fortunately, Corner Canyon did well at the state cheer competition on Jan. 30, as the varsity team took second place and the junior varsity won their division. “Every team has good tricks and routines that are competitive, so we are given one chance to do our two-and-a-half minute routine in front of judges,” Lunt said. “They are an incredible group of girls, and I’m very proud of them for all of the work that they put in for this season.” Principal Mary Bailey said it has been a successful season. “We couldn’t be more proud of our cheer competition teams,” Bailey said. “These girls and their coaches put in more than 1,000 hours practicing for their competitions this year, and their hard work paid off, as they won every local competition.” Cheer season is year-round, with tryouts being held March 7-11. “We look at tumbling and the skills they can already do — splits, back hamstrings, back tucks, round-offs, jumps, kicks — as well as their citizenship and require they keep a 3.0 grade-point average or higher,” Lunt said. “These girls have a lot of talent and are hardworkers. They already come in at a high level so we start with building upon those skills, rather than starting with basics.” Practices are usually three hours, three days per week, and in the summer, all morning. As fall rolls around, the 33-member cheer squad practices before school and in their firstperiod class as well as in the evenings and cheering at games. In between practices, the team volunteers and does service projects, such as this past summer, hosting a junior cheer camp which had 130 participants. They then performed with the junior cheerleaders in the Draper Days parade. Last year, they got the community involved when they donated more than 9,000 pairs of jeans for Teens for Jeans.

Competition season began Nov. 21, 2015, when they were named overall grand champions at Jamz at South Towne Expo, and the 12-member varsity team received first for best choreography. On Dec. 5 at Cottonwood High, the team competed at the USA regional contest and both varsity and JV took first. In addition, their four-member stunt team’s one-minute routine took first. The next week on Dec. 12 at the Salt Lake City Regionals, both teams qualified to compete at nationals as well as took first place. They followed this with a Jan. 9 USA regional win for both teams at Roy High School. The last competition they had before state was Jan. 23, the Northern Region Qualifier, which Corner Canyon hosted. JV won and varsity tied for first. In addition, varsity members sophomore Ryleigh Bloechel and senior Brianna Warburton were named regional champs. “Cheer is a little different than other sports where each competition has its own score sheet and looks for different things, so we have to tweak each routine depending on the competition. Still, our goal is to hit everything perfectly,” Lunt said. The team finished the season at the National High School Cheerleading Championship Feb. 6-7 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. The junior varsity team placed in the top 12 in their division. “(The varsity) were in the toughest division of the competition. They had 52 teams in their division,” she said, adding that they didn’t place. “It’s a good learning experience. Everyone who comes to compete in Florida is on a really good team. Utah isn’t a big cheer state. Next year, we will have most everyone returning as only three girls are seniors. We are only going up from here…I am very positive and excited about the future of Corner Canyon Cheer. I think we are going to do great things,” she said. l

orner Canyon High School Principal Mary Bailey will speak to her statewide colleagues about trends and issues in education in June as the Utah High School Principal of the Year. Awarded Jan. 6 by the Utah Association of Secondary School Principals, Bailey’s speech at their conference will prepare her as she will travel to Washington, D.C., Sept. 1114, to meet with the nation’s education leaders, Utah senators and members of congress and other top principals across the country at the national conference. “When I was called by Executive Director Carl Boyington, who said that I was picked as principal of the year, I was shocked. I had seen other people who were being interviewed for the honor as I was and knew they were solid, good principals, so I figured I didn’t have a chance. I was just lost for words, as I was taken back by surprise. He even asked if I was still there on the phone since I was so quiet,” she said. Bailey was contacted in late fall that she was nominated for the award. “I was humbled that someone would take the time to nominate me,” she said about the nomination process, which remains anonymous. Bailey then submitted her resume and recommendations and interviewed with six UASSP board members and two students in early December before learning later that month that she was selected. Her name now will be entered along with other state winners to be eligible for the national principal of the year distinction. Bailey, who was selected to help establish the three-year-old high school, was honored in January by Canyons Board of Education with a framed certificate and flower arrangement. Assistant Superintendent Bob Dowdle, who has worked with Bailey since 1988, said she her leadership is top-notch. “Her standards are through the ceiling,” he said, adding that she has a notable ability to build and maintain relationships. “Everyone is affected by her love of people.” Those at Corner Canyon can attest to

that. Cheer coach Whitney Lunt appreciates Bailey’s involvement at the school. “The biggest thing about Mary is that she goes out of her way to help,” she said. “She has 90 million things going on, but if you need to talk to her, she’s there — whether it’s early morning or late at night — and she has that amazing smile and willingness to help — and she comes to all our competitions. She’s just amazing, wonderful.” Instrumental director Randal Clark said the support goes beyond just being at the event or activity. “She’s not only everywhere, all the time, but she truly cares,” he said. “She writes on cards and thanks me not just for the great concert, but specifically what she loved or why this piece was great in the concert. She has a true gift with people and how she has time to do what all she does — and never forgets anything — I don’t know. She also finds ways to support programs financially. She’s always willing to find an answer and says, ‘let’s figure out how’ not a flat-out ‘there’s no money.’ With respect to other great administers, Mary is a one of a kind, and I’ve never known an administrator with her ability. Simply put, she’s the best principal.” Students and alumni also feel her impact as she’s smiling, encouraging them or congratulating them for their hard work and great feats. Alexsys Campbell, a 2015 graduate who appeared in several Corner Canyon’s theater productions, said she has fond memories of her high school principal. “The great thing about Mary Bailey is that she literally supports everything at Corner Canyon,” Alexsys said. “She makes the biggest effort I’ve ever seen of going to all of the theater performances, band, orchestra, choir concerts. I’ve seen her at every athletic event, drill or cheer competition — she truly supports Corner Canyon as a whole. Mary Bailey is the kind of principal every principal wishes they were and every student and teacher wishes they had. I am so grateful for her support and kindness, and most of all her example. She’s truly an amazing woman.” l

Juan Diego Looking for Repeat as Girls Basketball Champs By Ron Bevan | ron@mycityjournals.com

Juan Diego junior Brynn Drummond looks for an inside shot in recent girls basketball action.

A

s the Juan Diego girls basketball team enters this year’s state basketball tournament, the Soaring Eagle have more than a repeat of last year’s title in mind. The girls on the team want the state to know they weren’t riding the coattails of a talented player last season. “We had the best player in the state in Monique Mills last year, and behind her we went undefeated right through the 3A state title,” Juan Diego coach Josh Archuleta said. “This year these girls are very excited to prove that it was just the girl who was the 3A MVP. Sure, we had a changing of the guard. But this year’s team is very talented.” Juan Diego has posted a 14-5 record with one game remaining prior to the state 3A playoffs. Most of the losses came in the preseason when the Soaring Eagle faced a number of larger schools to prepare for regions. The only region loss came Jan. 21, when Juan Diego dropped a 57-48 decision to region nemesis Morgan. The Soaring Eagle exacted revenge Feb. 9, taking a 60-58 victory over the Trojans to move back into first place in the region. Juan Diego is finding success despite having only three seniors leading the charge. AnnMarie Nelson and Mia Berenguer have been starters for the past two seasons and return as senior starters to set the tone for Juan Diego. Nelson plays both forward and

post, while Berenguer is the point guard. “Nelson leads our team by example,” Archuleta said. “She is always the first in the gym and the last one out. Berenguer is a great floor general for us. She is good at keeping the girls in line without her crossing the line. She can give another player a look that lets them know to get back in line.” Haley Falvo is the third senior. Although not a starter, Falvo plays a key role coming off the bench when needed. “She is a steady shooter,” Archuleta said. “She has been on the team all four years and brings us energy off the bench.” Juan Diego’s offensive attack centers around perimeter threat Rebecca Curran. The junior guard is averaging almost 17 points per game, including connecting on 38 three -pointers this season. “She is a bulldog on defense as well,” Archuleta said. “She has a heart for the game.” Juan Diego plays an up-tempo game for four quarters. The Soaring Eagle try to run traps on every defensive play, then go straight into attack mode when coming down onto the offensive half. “Our motto is it is either a threepoint shot or a layup, nothing in between,” Archuleta said. “That’s how we won the title last year and how we play this year. If it isn’t broke, why change it?” l

Chargers Mature into Dominant Basketball Team By Ron Bevan | ron@mycityjournals.com

T “We usually control the games with the inside game, but we have enough talent to step outside and establish a perimeter game as well.”

his year’s edition of Corner Canyon boys basketball includes a few first-season players now completing three years with the program. And the growth from the inaugural season has turned into one of the 4A teams to beat. The Chargers are on a rampage this season, taking on all comers and rarely losing. Corner Canyon sits in second place right now behind Timpview in Region 7. “We just have a little more experience this year,” Corner Canyon coach Tony Cannon said. “A lot of these players have been here from the beginning. They have bought into our program, and now their hard work is paying off.” The Chargers have dropped two games in Region play, once to Timpview Jan 22, 76-69, and once to Orem, 52-45 the week prior. But Corner Canyon got revenge against Orem with a 43-39 victory Feb. 5 to secure second place in the region. Perhaps Cannon’s two biggest wins came against Cannon’s former team, Alta. Corner Canyon hadn’t face the Hawks in the first

two seasons, so when the two schools were paired in the same 4A region this year, sparks were expected. But Corner Canyon took both games with wins of 59-44 and 56-39. “Alta has always had a strong team,” Cannon said. “Playing them was a bit weird for me, because of all the years I put in at Alta. If we had played them in the first two years, they would have beat us bad. But we got fortunate to catch them in a slower year for them while we were rising.” Corner Canyon uses its abundance of size this season to establish and inside dominance. Forwards Braydon Johnson and Cameron Dougherty establish the inside game as starters. Tommy Groskreutz, a 6-foot-7-inch senior, comes off the bench to help out. Johnson, a senior, leads the team in both scoring and rebounding. Johnson has put in 275 points this year, averaging nearly 14 points per game, while grabbing more than eight rebounds each game. But he is not just an inside presence. He has stepped outside to knock down 16 threepointers as well.

URGENT CARE

“We usually control the games with the inside game, but we have enough talent to step outside and establish a perimeter game as well,” Cannon said. Kyle Gwilliam, also a senior, leads the team with long balls, knocking down 22 treys this year. Corner Canyon has two more seniors on the team, bringing the total to six seniors, an unusually high number for high school basketball. Braxton Coon and Trevor Miller round out the senior class. Both players are defensive specialists for the Chargers. Cannon usually rotates around eight players throughout the game. Sophomore Zach Wilson has earned a starting position, and junior Michael Scheffner comes off the bench. Although Corner Canyon is in a good position for the upcoming state playoffs, Cannon knows it will still be a rough road to try and bring home a state title. “There are a lot of good teams out there,” Cannon said. “I think the 4A title is wide open for a number of teams to try and grab.” l

Since that time, seven branches have been set up along the Wasatch Front, from Clearfield to Draper, with the South Valley Branch being their newest. What once was a handful of directors and branch cashiers has now grown into a force of more than 100 employees, who strive to continue providing the personalized service for which the bank is well known. First National has been in business for over 110 years, which is a unique characteristic in and of itself. To find out how they have been successful for so long, one needs to look no further than their superior service. “Our bank is unique because we still provide relationship banking, something that has almost disappeared in today’s virtual world,” Brady Stratton, business development officer for First National Bank, said. “When people have a question about their accounts or need financial help, they can call and speak directly to a real person. They don’t have to go through automated menus to solve their problems.” Just because First National boasts a personalized touch doesn’t mean they are behind the times.

Birthday Music I Can Hear – 11 Birthday Freebies for Restaurants and Shopping

H

appy Birthday! “It’s scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer.” “Age is just a number, in your case a really high one.” “You think age is funny? Wait until you look in the mirror.” Is it that time of year again where you open your Facebook page to find a barrage of jabs from family and friends who figure a digital greeting means more than a card and cake? Well guess what? I have a digital birthday surprise for you too. Whether you are 40, 50 or inching up on the world of 60 and beyond, getting another year older does have some perks, and I’m not talking about ordering off the senior menu at Denny’s, or the loss of hearing most distinguished adults can’t escape. I’m talking about Utah’s favorite “F” word…FREE! There are dozens of companies out there just waiting to send you a free gift for your birthday – restaurants that want to feed you and stores that want to give you freebies or money to spend. Here are 11 birthday freebies that topped my list:

Cashing in on the goods is easy; you simply join their monthly emails. A little tip, these emails can be cumbersome. My advice is to join only the companies you enjoy hearing from and don’t stash them away for just your birthday. Most of these companies send out special coupons during other times of the year too. Lastly, make sure you are signing up for their actual birthday club and not just their monthly newsletter; some of

them require different forms. You can find dozens more and links to each of the forms on www.coupons4utah.com/birthday. Free lunch, shopping, dinner and entertainment on my birthday is birthday music I can hear. l

Wild Child

T

oddlers and raccoons are eerily similar. They eat food off the floor, have nuclear levels of energy, and they’re very clever, without having a shred of common sense. When I learned my daughter was expecting her first child this spring, I thought she should practice by raising a raccoon. Here’s my advice. When holding your little raccoon for the first time, you’ll be awestruck. You’ll touch her tiny fingers, gaze into her dark brown eyes and sniff her furry head. She’ll cuddle into you and all will be right with the world—for about seven minutes. Then she’ll get hungry, and stay hungry for nine years. As you’re breastfeeding, you’ll feel that wonderful bond between the two of you, the love flowing and “$#*&!!!” Do not punch your baby raccoon in the face when she bites you. As your little raccoon goes from crawling to running away from you at the store while stuffing candy in her mouth, you’ll wonder if you’ll ever stop being tired or ever spend another moment not worrying. The answer is no.

you’re ready or not) and grab your hair so she won’t fall. Your hair will eventually grow back. Strap little raccoon into a stroller with a broken wheel and steer through a crowded mall with one hand, carrying a 25-pound diaper bag. When she escapes and scampers away, ignore the judging glances from childless women. Prepare yourself. You’ll leave little raccoon playing cheerfully, only to come back three minutes later to find she’s disappeared. You’ll search every room, closet and drawer to no avail. Immediately after you hysterically call the police, little raccoon will come stumbling down the hall after napping under the towels in the laundry basket. You won’t know whether to scream, laugh or cry; so you’ll do all three. But even with toys flushed in the toilet, melted crayons in the dryer and the layer of stickiness that coats your entire house, you’ll love little raccoon more than you ever imagined. And one day, when she has her own little raccoon, you can pass your hard-earned advice along to her. l

“I Know What I Wrote in the Past, But the Real Truth is This...” A Salt Lake Doctor Changes his Story

Dear friend-

first hand 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
