New Business Designs and Creates Custom Tailored Suits for Men By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com


olladay resident Shantel Sorensen is changing the way Utah men dress, one suit at a time. Sorensen has recently started Shespoke Custom where she makes custom fitted suits in the tradition of bespoke suits. These business suits for men are handmade and are made for each individual client. “It’s a custom clothing company where I go to the client and help them go through fabrics and help them decide what they want and we design their suit together,” Sorensen said. Sorensen, who has worked in men’s clothing design over three years, will then take the designs and the chosen fabric and will make a custom suit in four to six weeks. “I’m interested in dressing the everyday person,” Sorensen said. The name Shespoke is a play off of the term bespoke tailoring, a form of suit making where the men’s clothing is made to the buyer’s specific measurements by a tailor. The buyer has total control over the different options of the suit including features and fit. It also includes a high degree of customization and detailed hand finishing. The suits can range in cost dramatically. The fabric options begin at $600 and move up to $3,000. One of Sorensen’s big goals for Shespoke Custom is to help men realize it does benefit them to wear a tailored suit. “Tailored does not mean slim fit but rather it just fits them,” she said. “I also love to

educate them on the why and how of tailored suits.” Sorensen can travel to meet clientele all over the Wasatch Front. While she mostly makes suits appropriate for business, she also can make suits for weddings or other formal events. “Guys don’t put much thought into what they wear. Usually they just wear what they have in their closets,” she said. “I like seeing the light bulb go off.” When a client calls Sorensen, she spends some time talking to them over the phone to figure out what kind of suit they want and what kind of price range they’re dealing with. More importantly, she tries to figure out what they want the suit to say about themselves. A young professional who is just entering the business world will wear a suit that is different from a suit worn by a recent divorcee trying to get back into the dating pool. “It’s really just interviewing them about what they want and not just pushing what I want,” Sorensen said. When Sorensen comes to the client’s home, she will bring different fabric options to choose from. She and the client will then talk about previous suits the client has owned and what they liked or didn’t like about them. She may even have the client try on an old suit to explain what they like or don’t like. After taking specific measurements, she then goes out and creates a suit that is even better than their

Shantel Sorensen

best suit. Sorensen admits the whole process may seem a bit overwhelming or intimidating to the client, especially if they feel they know nothing about fashion or style. Sorensen understands her client’s fears and tries to work with her clients to make them feel assured. “There are some clients who want to be involved in the whole process, choosing the lining, the button holes and the pocket angles,” Sorensen said. “Other clients just pick the color of the suit and I go from there.” Potential clients can call Sorensen at 801891-9168 or email her at chantel@shespokecustom.com. l

Happy Healthy Holladay Kicks Off With Lecture on Reducing High Blood Pressure By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com



t the inaugural Happy Healthy Holladay lecture series on Thursday, Feb. 11, Holladay residents learned about heart health, specifically about the dangers of high blood pressure and ways to reduce it. Viet Le, a researcher at the Intermountain Heart Institute shared his knowledge of the heart and blood pressure at the Holladay Library. Le explained having a healthy blood pressure matters by relating it back to the water pipes in a home. If the water pressure is too low, the system isn’t going to work well. Vice versa, if the pressure is too high, pipes are going to burst or appliances, such as dishwashers are going to burst. Le said the cardiovascular system works the same way. “We care about blood pressure because it can affect major organs,” said Le. Le said for the general public, the goal for blood pressure is having a systolic blood pressure of 120 or less and a diastolic blood pressure of 80 or less. “We start to worry at 140 to 159 systolic or 90 to 99 diastolic,” said Le. While there are several different kinds of medications that can reduce blood pressure, Le explained there are many different lifestyle changes that can also reduce blood pressure. “The key is a healthy lifestyle,” said Le. “Anywhere we’re at, we can do better. This should be a lifestyle goal.”





The first thing someone can do to reduce their blood pressure is to lose weight. Losing as little as 10 pounds is enough to lower blood pressure, according to Le. The next thing people can do is eat healthy. While Le advised anyone should talk to a dietician before making drastic changes, the main advice he gave was to eat more whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein. People should also eat less saturated fats and sugars. A major part of heart healthy eating is avoiding salt as much as possible. An adult only needs between one half and three-fourths teaspoon of salt per day. “We probably add a little too much,” said Le. The next topic Le touched on was physical exercise. He recommended people do 30 minutes of moderate exercise five days a week or 25 minutes of vigorous exercise three days a week with two days of strength training. He emphasized the strength training for women especially, saying they typically don’t do enough. While the idea of 30 minutes for five days may seem daunting, Le said people can break it up into three 10 minute intervals. Le explained the FITT principle for exercise: frequency, intensity, time and type. When someone is first starting out with exercising, it’s important to go slow and only change one

or two of those items at a time. “Start low, increase slow, but go,” said Le. The last item Le touched on was alcohol and tobacco. Adults should drink alcohol sparingly. For a male, this means one to two drinks a day. For a female, this means one per day. And as for tobacco, it should be avoided all together. “It is the single most preventable cause of death,” said Le. This lecture was the first in a series of lectures hosted by Holladay at the library. City Councilmember Pat Pignanelli explained when she was first elected to the council, she began walking for exercise. Four or five years ago, she and her husband were visiting New York City. Once morning, she went out to take her walk and she noticed Times Square was

shut down for a huge crowd doing yoga. This had an impression on Pignanelli. “I want this is my city,” she said. She began to reach out to residents to begin presenting different topics about health and well being. “It’s never been huge but it’s developed into other topics,” said Pignanelli. The monthly lectures will cover a broad range of topics including financial health, emergency preparedness and outdoor activities. “We’re learning what people need,” said Pignanelli. “We just want to be Happy, Healthy Holladay.” The next lecture will be at noon on March 24 at the Holladay Library. The topic will be how to prevent identity theft. l

H local life Impact Jiu Jitsu Tournament Shows Off Sport and Athletes

ver 115 young athletes from all over Utah and neighboring states competed on Saturday, Feb. 6 at the Holladay Lions Recreation Center during the Impact Jiu Jitsu tournament. More than 20 different clubs competed with both boy and girl athletes ages five to 15 years old. The kids competed in weight divisions through a double elimination tournament. First, second and third place winners in the divisions took away medals. Roberta Oliveira is the wife of Carlos Santos, one of the cofounders of First BJJ. Santos and Suyan Queiroz are both instructors at First BJJ with years of training and experience in world competitive Brazilian jiu jitsu. According to Oliveira, both Queiroz and Santos used to work in Abu Dhabi where they taught Brazilian jiu jitsu to members of the army and the royal family. They later expanded it to public schools where it replaced physical education. In 2014, the pair came to Utah to found the first Brazilian jiu jitsu club. They were the main organizers of the tournament. “The intention of hosting the tournament was to share the knowledge of the sport. There are lots of martial arts groups [in Utah] but not BJJ,” Oliveira said. “We apply the same rules and go by the book to raise knowledge of the sport and the group.” Brazilian jiu jitsu is a martial art, combat technique and a form of self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting,

a technique which uses submission holds like joint locks and choke holds. Brazilian jiu jitsu promotes the idea the bigger, stronger fighter does not always win. By using the tactic of get-

ting their opponent to either tap out or lock them in a position they cannot escape. If neither of these things happens during the time allotment, the winner is chosen based on points.

The tournament itself was relatively small when compared to other national competitions. In bigger competitions, girls typically compete against other girls in their own division. At the Impact BJJ Tournament, there were not

enough girl competitors so girls had to fight in the same division as boys, though they were matched up by weight class. Eleven-year-old Brooklyn Brown from Sryacruse, Utah was one of the girl competitors. Brooklyn has been doing jiu jitsu for the past two years. She was introduced to the sport after going to the gym with her dad. “I’m not good at other sports, but I’m good at this,” Brooklyn said. “It’s very technical, which I like. You have to think more than in other sports.” Fourteen-year-old Malachi Novosel from West Valley also competed at the Impact BJJ tournament. He began his jiu jitsu training five years ago after his dad enlisted in the military and he needed somewhere he could be around boys his age and learn important lessons like discipline and sportsmanship. Malachi said he likes the sports in general. “I like the sport and how fun it is,” Malachi said. Malachi used to study gi jiu jitsu, a form of jiu jitsu where the athletes can use the uniform or gi as a weapon, grabbing the gi to force the opponent into submission. After he earned his orange belt in gi jiu jitsu, he moved on to non-gi jiu jitsu, which he is still working on.

American Sign Language Students Perform Play About Depression, Suicide and School Violence Entirely in ASL By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com.

tudents at Skyline High School took on the difficult task of performing in “Bang, Bang You’re Dead” on Jan. 29 and 30. The play, written by William Mastrosimore, is about a school shooter and the ghosts of his victims. Other themes include depression, suicide and bullying. The subject matter alone makes the play challenging. However, this version is performed entirely in American Sign Language. The student actors are all in ASL classes at the high school. The dialogue was performed in sign language with other actors providing the voice so all abil-

ities could enjoy the play. Teacher Jody Linn Tolley explained her students needed practice “speaking” in ASL. “The students need to take it to another level,” Tolley said. The audience during the shows was divided nearly evenly between hearing individuals and the deaf community. In addition to the traditional applause at the end of the show, member of the deaf community raised their hands and shook them, the ASL sign for applause. Tolley learned about the play from her sister, Katie Leclerc, whose friend was one of the victims of the Columbine shootings in 1999. Leclerc

The other role was providing the voice for other actors who were signing. For instance, Matt Smith acted and signed for the character Michael. Smith also provided the vocal dialogue for Matt, who was acted and signed by Sterling Kerr. The student actors therefore had to memorize both their signing lines and their vocal lines. Eighteen-year-old Jake Bergeson had the difficult task of playing Josh. However, Bergeson said he could relate

performed the play when she was younger and described the experience to Tolley as a turning point in her life. Tolley and her students chose the play because of its strong themes of school violence and bullying. “We talked about it and we decided we’re not going to make a play. We’re going to make a difference,” Tolley said. The play focuses on Josh, a young man who murders his parents and five of his classmates during a school shooting. While in jail, the ghosts of his victims haunt him, replaying times in his life where he was rejected, bullied and humiliated. The ghosts pester him, reminiscing of what they miss from their life, what they’ll never get to do now they’re dead and continually asking

to Josh in some ways. “I’ve been bullied before and I’ve felt alone,” Bergeson said. “I’ve dealt with depression so I know what it’s like to feel like it’s you against the world. What Josh does, it isn’t the right thing but I can understand.” Bergeson said his favorite part of the production was working with his fellow ASL classmates. “It created this very strong bond that has been outstanding,” Bergeson said. Seventeen-year-old Jillian Garry played Emily, a childhood friend of Josh who is also one of his victims. Garry has been studying ASL for almost three years. “I really like acting and ASL is a lot about facial expression,” Garry said. “I thought it’d be a good thing to try.” Because of the double roles the actors had to take on, Garry said the production was harder to grasp than most plays. On top of that, the subject matter was also difficult to tackle successfully. “It was very emotional and trying,” Garry said. “At the end of the play, nearly everyone is in tears.” Like Bergeson, Garry’s favorite part of putting on the production was getting to know her fellow ASL classmates. “We’re like a family,” Garry said. “Performing together is just icing on the cake.” l

David Eccles School of Business Dean and Associate Dean Receive Alumni Award from Olympus High


By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com

uring halftime of Olympus High’s home basketball game on Jan. 29 against Skyline High School, the Olympus Foundation honored two alumni who have gone on to distinguished academic careers. Taylor Randall and Natalie Gochnour both received the Distinguished Alumni Award. Randall and Gochnour are the dean and associate dean, respectively, of the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. “We thought it was pretty great that two of our alumni were deans of the business school,” Betsy VanDenBerghe, a member of the Olympus Foundation, said. According to VanDenBerghe, winners are chosen by the Olympus Foundation, a philanthropic organization that funds academic, sports, arts and other areas of Olympus High School in which students and teachers need extra funding at times. The winners receive a plaque to go on the wall of the high school and are recognized at a high school event, in this case a basketball game, with a reception preceding it for friends and family members.   Past winners include Nadine “Deannie” Wimmer, co-anchor for KSL News, Jack Ashton, professional violinist and founder of the Young Artist Chamber Players and Sandra Merrell Covey, author and wife of the late Steven R. Covey. Randall has been dean of the David Eccles School of Business since 2010. In 2009, he received the Executive MBA Teaching Award. In

2007, he received the MBA Teaching Award. As a current professor in the accounting department, Randall’s research focuses on issues at interface of accounting and operations management, strategic cost management, supply chain management and product variety management. He has authored and co-authored several academic papers through the course of his research. “I had a great experience at Olympus High School. I made many lifelong friends and have always been grateful for the care and excellence demonstrated by our administrators and teachers,” Randall said. “I’m a proud Olympus Titan and especially honored to receive the school’s distinguished alumni award. It really means a lot.” Gochnour has been the associate dean since 2013. From 2006 to 2013, she was the executive vice president and chief economist for the Salt Lake Chamber. She’s acted as an advisor to Utah governors Bangerter, Leavitt and Walker, and served as the media spokesperson for the governor’s office during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. She also worked as a political appointee in the George W. Bush administration, serving as an associate administrator at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and a deputy to the secretary at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Aside from being associate dean, she also writes regular columns in both Utah Business magazine and the Deseret

News. “I’m proud to be an Olympus alumna,” Gochnour said. “Togas, yearbooks, friends, state high school football playoffs, and powder puff football all bring back happy memories.” Gochnour expressed gratitude toward her time at Olympus, citing instances where it influenced her current life. “Looking back, I recognize many seeds were planted during my high school years. I took an interest in writing — contributing

several poems to the literary journal Pegasus. Today I write for the Deseret News. Two of my favorite classes were marketing and college algebra. Now I serve as a state economist and as an associate dean at the state’s premier business school,” Gochnour said. “While I was never involved in student government, I respected my many friends who did. Their willingness to put their name on a ballot impressed me. Now I work closely with many elected officials who do the same.” l

With Heavy Hearts Holladay Turns Heartbreak to Healing

By Carol Hendrycks | carol@mycityjournals.com

Barney Vigil - An Outpouring of Respect.

Barney Family Memories.

Barney Vigil Podium.

Dedicated Volunteers Pinning Blue Ribbons.

Volunteers Include Sen. Jani Iwamoto.


esidents of Holladay, the state and our nation have heard about fallen Officer Barney, wounded Officer Richey and the events that unfolded the week of Jan. 17, 2016. Holladay, the sleepy bedroom town experienced a not so sleepy incident that no one could or can believe. How could a shooting like this happen right here? From the moment of the car accident on 4500 South 2300 East, to the two individuals who were seen leaving their car at the scene, to a search that ensued for the driver and passenger, to just minutes later in a nearby neighborhood an officer shot down and another wounded. Quick action by the Unified Police Department for the City of Holladay and other units were upon the scene taking down the gunman, subduing his mother and step brother to prevent further chaos on a peaceful Sunday morning. The neighborhood in a lockdown to protect residents and to control the situation was fast realizing that a serious situation was in progress. The event unfolding in a quiet suburban cul-de-sac claimed the life of an outstanding 18-year veteran law enforcement officer, Doug Barney (age 44) survived by wife Erika, their three children, Matilda, 18 (Matti), Meredith, 16 (Merri), and Jacob, 13 (Jack), and left 30-year law enforcement officer Jon Richey with bullet wounds to his legs and gunman Cory Lee Henderson dead. This case is being investigated by the Salt Lake City Police Department and Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office as part of the Officer Involved Critical Incident Protocol and information will be reported as it becomes available. However, this story will attempt to recap events and remind all of us that from tragedy comes the unconditional love and support and that there is more good than evil in this world as shown by Holladay and surrounding communities. Local residents and citizens unified to demonstrate an unprecedented wave of compassion and countless unconditional acts of kindness to respect Officers Barney and Richey, their families and honor all of the women and men across our nation who take on the oath and promise to serve and protect. The City of Holladay lined the streets along 2300 East with hundreds flags and blue ribbons, flags at half-staff and local signs posted in remembrance of Barney. A few brief comments about Officer Bar-

ney that was mentioned over and over again by anyone interviewed are the same. A good man, husband, father and son – a larger than life presence, used humor in whatever he was doing on and off the job, loved working on cars and had a zest for life. His former boss Chief Bertram from the City of Holladay said, “What Doug would want to be remembered as: that distinctive ‘Doug’ personality, his humor, whatever your favorite Doug saying was ‘My Brotha’ with a pat on the back and how he brightened up your day no matter what was going on in his life.” That’s just the kind of person he was, even battling through cancer for a number of years. He was always eager to get back on the job, brought humor to the situation and, as he recovered, always eager to return to work. So it was not unusual that Officer Barney picked up an extra shift to help offset medical bills that particular Sunday morning. As word of the news came to the Holladay Mayor Rob Dahle that Sunday morning, Jan. 17 he recalled, “I was in the middle of drafting my February newsletter article when I took the call I never wanted to receive. Unified Police Sheriff Jim Winder informed me that there was an auto accident at 4500 South and 2300 East.” With the information relayed to Mayor Dahle, he then received another call saying, “The next call came from a resident in the abutting neighborhood. A single shot was heard coming from the direction of his driveway and that an officer was down. Initial reports indicate that Officer Barney’s service weapon was holstered.” Mayor Dahle also noted in a published letter, “We live in a time when police service has been the subject of intense scrutiny. The pundits claim to have all the answers. They are quick to question the intentions and actions of our officers with little if any understanding of what it means to put on a uniform, say goodbye to loved ones, and nobly enter an environment in which the attitudes and actions of the very citizens they are sworn to protect can end their life with the squeeze of a trigger.” The Holladay City staff did not hesitate even through their grief to pull together and plan a special candlelight vigil held on Jan. 20 at 6 p.m. in the Commons area behind Holladay City Hall. Hundreds attended to honor Officer Barney and give the opportunity to his wife Erika Barney, three children, Doug’s

brother and mother to say a few words. Residents and people from all over our state came to show their heartfelt respect – thousands attended where banners featuring Officer Barney hung, volunteers pinned on blue ribbons and readied all of the candles for attendees. One of many notable volunteers Senator Jani Iwamoto was eager to lend a hand and offered this: “Officer Doug Barney will be remembered for his ultimate sacrifice – protecting our residents. Tonight’s vigil highlighted his positive and uplifting demeanor, and his commitment to family.  Holladay and communities throughout our state honor Officers Doug Barney and Jon Richey, and their families.” As the vigil got underway with the Olympus High Madrigals opening with angelic voices followed Debbie Dujanovic – local KSL reporter, wife of former Chief Bertram and personal friend of the Barneys of many years – who graciously conducted the ceremony by introducing President Ngo, Mayor Rob Dahle, Sheriff Winder, former Holladay City Chief Bertram and U.P.D. and Holladay Chief Hutson. It was also remarkable to see Officer Richey accompanied by his wife Hannah and walking on his own accord just three days after his injuries offered his thoughts. Candlelight from as far as you could see lit the entire back of city hall, out to the street from north to south, while a procession of bagpipers playing “Amazing Grace” moved from back of city hall along the corridor to the podium under the covered gazebo. There was a range of emotions bouncing from heartbroken and sadness, to disbelief, to anger and frustration, but what prevailed was the celebration of life for Officer Barney, heartfelt compassion for the families, hugs and handshakes and an offering of unselfish help, support and love. All that was being said was taken to heart and reflected through the tearful eyes of hundreds of mourners. Mayor Dahle said his emotions “swing between profound sadness and extreme anger” by the events of the past week. “We gather tonight as a community, shocked and scarred by the senseless murder of Officer Douglas Barney. My hope is we can take this opportunity to be together as friends, neighbors and colleagues to begin a path toward healing.” Though heartbroken, the resilience in face of this tragedy was evident to all.

Manager commented, “Our hope was to deliver a peaceful, dignified and respectful gathering. I was proud of the citizens of Holladay in honoring and supporting the Barney family at the vigil.” At the close, a moment of silence commenced by the playing of “Going Home” which completed the program sung by Sgt. Glad. There were so many notable comments from all of the speakers who showed incredible composure, their love and friendship and thoughts of comradery including former words from Holladay Chief Bertram explained that this is what his fellow officer and friend would have said, “What I want others to remember about Doug is, no matter how bad things get, how hurt you may be, always keep a sense of humor and laugh…even at yourself.” Followed by U.P.D. Chief Hutson remarked, “Holladay City will not be defined by the fact this random event occurred within its borders, but will be remembered for how its citizens responded and became stronger as a result. The outpouring of support from Holladay City has been overwhelming and I would like to offer my most sincere personal thanks to everyone who provided support through deed, thought, and prayer.” Sherriff Jim Winder with tears in his eyes said, “We gotta quit looking for answers because there ain’t none. Look instead for selflessness and love.” And the most poignant remarks came from Erika herself standing with their son to thank everyone, saying she has not been left alone and let everyone know her appreciation was far reaching, grateful to know she had the strength of her family, her law enforcement family, friends and communities to help heal and lean on. “It just makes us feel lifted up and supported,” she said. She was a pillar of strength and inspiring for all in attendance, especially for her children. What was to follow over the next several days was nothing short of exceptional and community pulling together. Avenues to donate funds or services poured in from businesses or events such as: America First Credit Union under the Doug Barney Memorial Account and the Jon Richey Charitable Account or contact AFCU at 1-800-999-3961. And the co-founders of Salt Lake Comic Con set up a fundraiser to help the families of two Utah police officers. For every Salt Lake Comic Con FanX16 ticket sold on Jan. 19, 50 percent of the proceeds were donated. Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg have committed to donate a minimum of $2,500 to the families. Fans could also donate directly on the GrowTIX site and 100 percent went to the families. JetBlue offered free flights to law enforcement agencies

and police departments across the nation who planned to attend the funeral. Other community members, specifically wives of fallen officers offered comfort to Erika Barney and Hannah Richey (the wife of the wounded officer) as Nanette Wride and Shante Johnson know firsthand what it’s like to lose their husbands in the line of duty. “Our first instinct is just to run to her and let her know you’re not alone, even though this really hurts,” Johnson said. Other community residents such as Janet Thorsted of Fruit Heights kindly posted on Facebook Jan. 21 that she had room for officers traveling from out of state to stay in her home to attend services. Many Utahns offered their homes to accommodate the more than 10,000 law enforcement officers expected for the funeral. And they did come – on Jan. 24, the public viewing took place at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Salt Lake Utah Hunter West Stake Center in West Valley City, Utah. Outside American flags and blue ribbons tied to trees and street signs. Inside, large floral displays, with arrangements in the shape like police badges and department emblems. The following day a funeral procession over 50 miles long beginning with services held at the Maverik Center, 3200 Decker Lake Drive, West Valley City, Utah traveling through parts of Salt Lake City, through Holladay past city hall and onto the interment located in the Orem City Cemetery. Services at the Maverik Center were overwhelming with the sea of officers from all arms of law enforcement, fire departments, military branches and more. And not a dry eye in the house watching Barney’s son, brother, close family and friends escort the body of Officer Barney down the long aisle to the front of the podium. It also should be noted that since the officer’s death there had been a uniformed officer stationed by his body’s side. This day was no different. Even at the hospital where Barney perished, his body was transported from the hospital to the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office on Sunday with a large police procession. Retired Unified Police Lt. Chris Bertram, one of Barney’s closest friends, was there as officers stood and saluted as his body was brought through the hospital hallway. The command of attention and respect for Officer Barney and his family was a most respectful and profound service most people may ever witness. Barney’s brother Brian, with a clear but saddened voice said, “There was nobody quite like Doug. He was not only physically strong, 6’5”, but strong in persuasion.” He gave antidotal stories about their youth that gave all a moment to laugh. Comments from Chris Bertram that he will be missed and how

he enjoyed decades of laughter and the way he brightened your day no matter what was going on. Bertram said, “‘I will always carry Doug with me. He was my brother and he is my hero.” Sherriff Winder showing a deep sense of pride and in trepidation in that, “nothing could prepare him for this day,” as he struggled for words in the gravity of the moment. And Governor Herbert who recognized the sacrifice officers makes every day and the ultimate price Doug paid with his life. He wanted all to know that the law enforcement family is the heart and soul of what makes this state great. And remarks from Erika Barney giving the audience several inside stories about how Doug had a knack for finding stolen vehicles, how he saved a teen’s life by having a hunch that this boy needed some help as he was alone and turns out needed medical attention. Had Officer Barney gone home after finishing his shift, the boy would most likely have perished in his sleep. She talked about how they discussed her joining on as dispatcher to help with medical bills, and that she wondered why he would even suggest that. Jokes were exchanged and the audience again laughed with Erika. She talked about his rounds with cancer and how he hated staying in bed. Erika closed by addressing the men and women in uniform by saying, “mourn together to be able to perform together. This is the greatest honor of Doug’s life and proud of all of you in blue and in uniform. Thank you for your service.” As the procession left the Maverik Center and made its way towards Holladay, thousands lined the streets, waving flags, holding their hands to their hearts, waving on each and every officer and their precinct partners from across all of Utah’s counties, from other states including New York. Even a large bus noted the Barney’s memorial. Holladay City Hall staff and residents crowded the streets to pay their respects to every car. This went on for more than three hours. The procession was still passing long after the first vehicles had arrived in Orem for the interment. The generosity and humanity of the people of Holladay is inspiring. As a final note, Barney is the first U.S. police officer to be killed in the line of duty this year, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, a nonprofit that tracks law enforcement officer deaths. The outpouring of concern, support and determination of law enforcement officers to keep our communities protected and to serve with humility is nothing short of grand gesture that we all should stop and pay gratitude towards.

Aided by their new friend Colonel Flanders, the professor will stop at nothing to merge the worlds of East and West. But will Jenna’s new found propriety be all it’s cracked up to be?

Whitmore Library draws crowds during two events geared toward youth


uring the month of February, the Whitmore Library offered two activities for children and teens which drew big crowds. The first activity was a “Frozen” party based off the Disney movie and took place on Feb. 6. “It’s a very popular topic,” said Kira Moody, the Youth Services librarian at Whitmore. “The kids have really latched on to ‘Frozen’.” The idea for the “Frozen” party came about after the library discovered an events group that will bring in actors to play different Disney characters to interact and play with children. “We thought we’d do ‘Frozen’,” Moody

By Kelly Cannon | kelly@mycityjournals.com said.

Elsa and Olaf were there to sign autographs and take pictures with the kids. The pair also read books during storytime and played games with the kids, as well as other activities. Moody explained the library tries to do a Disney themed party once a year to get young children into the library. “We want to promote early literacy skills and show what the library has to offer,” she said. The other successful program was Death by Chocolate which took place on Feb. 13. “This was for everyone who is obsessed with chocolate,” Moody said. “It’s everything

about chocolate.” At the event, kids from ages 12 to 17 enjoyed a round of chocolate themed Jeapordy, chocolate crafts, and various games. Moody said the idea for the event came out of hosting various other events. “It seemed like at all of the programs, they would ask for chocolate,” Moody said. “So I thought we’d have a chocolate themed program.” During the month of March, Whitmore Library is hosting several other activities teens may be interested in. From 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, March 4 is the Teen Laser Tag Lockin Party. For ages 14 to 17, the library will be

locked in after hours for a night of laser tag, tech gadgets, board games and more. Permission slips will be available starting February 26 and tickets are available two hours before program begins. All throughout the month of March is also the teen art contest at the library. For ages 12 to 17, participants will receive a $5 book fine waiver. Winners will win a bag of art supplies. See a librarian for entry form and/or more details. For more information on upcoming events at Whitmore Library, visit slcolibrary.org/gl/ glal/librarywhitmore.htm. l

Though snow still covers portions of the City Hall Park playground, it is as busy as ever. The increased activity serves as a reminder that spring is peaking around the corner. Thought I would take this opportunity to update our citizens on continued progress made toward completing our park space. The city was recently awarded a $250,000 grant from the Tourism, Recreation, Cultural, Convention and

prioritize these funds for the coming year. In order of priority, here is what we hope to accomplish: • Installation of shade sails and trees in and around the playground area • Repair or replace the stone bleachers at the Northeast baseball diamond • Complete connecting walking path • Consider the location and installation of pickleball and/or basketball court(s) • Consider placement of new storage sheds and gazebo at the North end of the park space • Landscape area around the Casto Home

Airport Facilities Tax Act Fund (TRCC) administered through Salt Lake County. We are also applying for a Federal grant through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Should we receive the award we will have approximately $450,000 of funding to place toward improving City Hall Park. Councilmembers Sabrina Petersen and Lynn Pace are working with our staff to program and

We are actively planning the shading and bleacher projects. How far we can move down the priority list depends on overall cost and the LWCF grant award. We made substantial progress on the park project over the past two years. Completing the priorities listed above will allow us to focus our attention on additional opportunities to preserve and improve open space in our city. Stay Tuned!

FREE STREET TREES! Holladay City is well known for being one of the most heavily wooded cities in the state. City leaders, partnered with the Holladay City Tree Committee, want to help maintain the health of our urban forest. What this means to home owners is that the city will help you place new trees in your residential landscapes “right of way” areas aka ‘Street Trees’. These new trees can help compliment your existing landscape or restore what may have been lost after older trees have been removed. Last year Holladay helped line our streets with more than 50 new trees and in 2016 we plan to double that! Simply fill out an application which is available at the front desk of city hall or visit www.cityofholladay.com/ displayarticle1785.html Once the application is completed, leave it with the receptionist at city hall or email the PDF to holladaycitytree@ ymail.com After the application has been reviewed by the city tree committee a voucher will be issued which you may redeem at one of our participating nurs-

eries for the dollar amount and tree species detailed on your approved voucher. THIS IS NOT A REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM, please do not submit receipts for trees you have purchased yourself. Some of the rules and restrictions for applying are as follows: • You must be a Holladay city resident • The tree must be in a city “Right of Way” location which is typically within 12 feet of a city street • This program is first come first serve and will end once the allocated budget is exhausted There are many species of trees which will be approved for our area most of which are recommended by the Utah state forester. Larger trees may be restricted in some areas.

Drive Personal Performance Center in Holladay Goes High Tech A Revolutionary Workout Comes to Holladay By Douglas Andrew


’m excited about something on the cutting edge of fitness and technology that has arrived—the first in Utah, and it’s located in Holladay. Are you ready to try something new that disrupts conventional human fitness paradigms to create a completely new standard for optimizing your physical fitness and recovery? It’s Vasper Training Systems, and it’s being introduced exclusively at Drive Personal Performance in Holladay. Vasper, originating from “vascular performance,” is a patented exercise and rehabilitation technology using the principles of compression and cooling during exercise. Vasper allows users of almost all ages and physical abilities to achieve anaerobic exercise benefits effectively and without sweating. Those benefits are decreased body fat, increased muscle mass, bone density, improved sleep quality, increased focus, clarity of mind, faster recovery

Systems executive Peter Wasowski discovered Vasper while seeking a remedy for his own health issues. “After moving to Hawaii from California in the late 1990s, I was suffering from traumatic arthritis in both ankle joints and high blood sugar, diagnosed as pre-diabetic,” he said. Rather than treat these symptoms with medications, he decided to design new technology to address the cause of his symptoms and undertook eight years of research, building and testing different prototypes combining the core cooling techniques of the NASA space suit’s astronaut temperature control and different forms of vascular compression. “During the first two weeks of using this device my joint pain associated with arthritis was dramatically reduced and then went away,” Wasowski said. “My blood sugar levels came back to normal, and I flushed my medications down the toilet. Soon my friends and neighbors learned about my device, started using it and realized similar benefits.” In 2009 Vasper Systems was formed.

from exercise or physical injuries, relief of joint pain and increased exercise capacity. Most of us exercise aerobically at low intensity, for a longer duration because, let’s face it, a shorter, high-intensity (anaerobic) sprint workout doesn’t feel good. Its short bursts of maximum intensity can be painful and it comes with a lot of sweat and long recovery periods. Studies have shown that the benefits of anaerobic exercise far outweigh the benefits of an aerobic workout. Vasper workouts allow the individual to achieve the benefits of high intensity exercise during a low impact 21-minute interval workout with minimal or zero sweat and fast recovery. Not only does Vasper provide the healthy individual with immeasurable benefits, but it has proven to have significant benefits on the rehabilitative and therapeutic populations. Serial entrepreneur and former GE Medical


THE VASPER WORKOUT Vasper workouts are done with a Nustep recumbent elliptical—sort of like a sit-down exercise bike—used in concert with Vasper cooled compression built into the bike. You generally warm up nine minutes at a low-to-moderate pace, followed by a series of high-intensity sprint intervals with varying duration (15, 30 or 60 seconds) followed by a 90-second recovery. When your workout is complete, you lie down resting on a liquid-cooled table for 10 minutes. During the entire workout, liquid-cooled compression cuffs concentrate the lactic acid in the muscle tissue to generate a stronger impulse to the pituitary gland, which assists with hormonal balance. The cooling element works simultaneously with the compression, keeping the core body temperature cooler during the workout. Rising body temperatures during exercise is a primary limiting factor for performance. Vasper liquid cooling simulates the effect of exercising in cool water without getting wet. Cooling during exercise also decreases pain intensity and reduces inflammation. Most athletes describe it as a “weird feeling” where they feel and know their muscles are burning, but the fatigue factor is dramatically reduced. You can Vasper and then walk into your personal workout and experience more power and better performance.

“I know of no other exercise that provide such dramatic gains in such a short amount of time” said Dr. Jeffery Gladden, an interventional cardiologist and athlete who’s been using Vasper for more than a year. He is director of cardiology services at Wise Regional Hospital and John Hopkins County Memorial Hospital and director of cardiac rehabilitation at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, all in Texas. “It has become a cornerstone in our performance optimization programs.” “We currently have an ongoing study with cardiac rehab patients to evaluate the effects of Vasper improving cardiac performance, and we have also been using Vasper to train athletes and the general population. Vasper uniformly improves the participants’ reported performance acceleration with no risk of injury. It also has been reported by many to speed the recovery of previous injuries.” When I first walked into Vasper in San Jose, I felt like I had been launched into a human performance lab of the future. My first workout on Vasper left me feeling exhilarated with an abundance of energy. My wife and daughter experienced the same remarkable results. As a 63-year-old senior, I feel more energetic than I have in four decades. Vasper’s effect on my performance and recovery have been astonishing. My REM and deep sleep scores have doubled. Inasmuch as our brains are “oxygen-hoIics,” I have found it to be an incredible “enhancing” workout that has had a profound effect on my energy, clarity of mind, memory and overall quality of my health. I incorporate a 21-minute Vasper session up to three times weekly into my routine; otherwise it would be too painful to go back to the way I used to feel. The U.S. Navy SEALS, NASA astronauts, Olympic athletes, San Jose Sharks, Stanford University athletes, Ironman athletes, aging athletes, fitness enthusiasts, cardiac patients and those with spinal cord injuries, among other rehabilitation programs have used Vasper. I invite you to join us in becoming a member of the Vasper team at Drive Personal Performance Center and make Vasper a part of your prescription for overall health. Please joint us for an Open House on Saturday, March 5 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. when we will be introducing VASPER SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY at Drive Personal Performance Center, 1941 East MurryHolladay Road, Holladay, UT 84117.

Escape to Sweet Indulgence at Auntie Rae’s By Rachel Hall | r.hall@mycityjournals.com


atisfy a sweet tooth with a quick trip to Auntie Rae’s Dessert Island, open Monday through Saturday, and located at 4704 South Holladay Blvd., between Meier’s Pharmacy and the barber shop. “We are in an old home that is set away from the street. Many people miss us,” owner Raelynn Potts said. “Auntie Rae’s is like the old-fashioned soda shop of earlier times – [a] great, safe place to hang out.” The family-friendly restaurant includes two rooms for kids to play in while adults are finishing their desserts. “[We have] one room for younger folks with kid-size chairs, puzzles, games and cars,  and one room for tweens with beanbag chairs, LEGO’s and books,” Potts said. Popular menu items include Brando’s Cookie Sundae, Jane’s fudge cake and floats – tempting tidbits that will whisk a hungry customer away to a sanctuary for a sweet tooth, according to Potts. Satisfied smiles are just one indication that the variety

of goodies available on the menu help people of all ages “escape to sweet indulgence.” Favorite family recipes and fresh ingredients make the aroma of Auntie Rae’s like that of visiting grandma’s house. “[The] benefits are seeing the happy faces of our customers as they gather with family and friends enjoying good treats and good company,” Potts said. All treats are individually sized and special orders can be made with 48 hours notice. Cookies, pie, cheesecake, root beer floats, parfaits and ice cream cones can make a decision of what to choose a difficult one. Join Auntie Rae in the parlor, family room or library, where you can find newspapers, books, magazines and WiFi to enjoy while satisfying one’s sweet tooth. Birthday parties, tea parties and corporate events can be reserved by calling Auntie Rae’s at 801-679-3925. Visit www.auntieraesdessertisland.com for more information.

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


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:

*Kmart and Sears: Join the Shop Your Way Birthday Club and you will receive a special gift on your birthday. Mine was $10 to spend in the store. Plus, when you register your kids, they’ll get $5 in birthday bucks, a birthday crown, happy birthday certificate and a birthday fun pack. *Ulta Beauty: Sign up for the Ulta Rewards Program and get a special birthday surprise. Last year mine was an exclusive lipstick that sells for $18. *Sephora: Get a FREE gift from Sephora on your birthday. Last year mine was a beauty product valued at $25. *Aveda: Join their birthday program and receive FREE exclusive offer on your birthday. Last year mine was a bottle of an essential oil. *Victoria’s Secret: Sign up for emails and receive special gift for your birthday. In past years this has been a $10 gift card. *Kohls: Sign up for YES2YOU rewards and get a $10 Kohls gift card for your birthday.

Professional Nails & Spa Pedicure Services

*Shula’s 347 Grill (West Valley City): Sends a complimentary entrée with the purchase of an entrée of equal or greater value. *Boondocks: Birthday Club members enjoy a FREE unlimited pass! Cashing in on the goods is easy; you simply join each company’s 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;

Wild Child


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.

All your clothes will be smeared with peanut butter, yogurt and snot. You’ll wear them anyway. When she shaves the dog or colors the tub with Sharpies, take it in stride. One day, you’ll rock little raccoon to sleep and place her gently in her crib. You’ll be relieved you can use the bathroom alone for the first time in days. Before you get comfortable, little raccoon has tunneled out of the crib and is frantically clawing at the door, shoving her fingers under the door and doing her best to chew through the door to get to you. Bath time will be a wet lesson in patience. Wrestle little raccoon into the tub, distracting her with toys as you lather her furry body. Keep her calm as the shampoo drips into her eyes and she shrieks while crawling up your arm, soaking your last semi-clean T-shirt. In the middle of the night, you’ll be anxious about little raccoon. You’ll sneak into her room like a ninja, to make sure she’s safe. As you tiptoe back to bed and step on a wooden block and slam your hip on the doorknob, you can’t swear, because not only will little

raccoon wake up with an ear-splitting scream, but she’ll use the swear word exclusively for eight months. Little raccoon will love to make cookies. She’ll push the chair to the counter, climb up next to you and turn the mixer on full blast, shooting sugar and eggs everywhere. She’ll screech and jump onto your chest (whether 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
