tah’s longest continuous settlement became an official city 20 years ago and celebrated its birthday on Sept. 20. Holladay was founded in 1847 and was known as Holladay’s Burg in the Utah Territory. John Holladay, an early pioneer in Colorado, Utah and California, originally settled the area. About 500 residents attended at City Hall to celebrate its heritage with cake, music, children’s train and Plein Art Quick Draw contest. “With the re-development of the village center, completion of Knudsen Park and the Cottonwood Mall now on track for redevelopment, Holladay residents should be exceedingly optimistic. Our future is bright!” Mayor Rob Dahle said. The Holladay Chamber of Commerce sponsored a face painter and launched the premiere of Taste of Holladay. “The Taste is a unique opportunity to sample the fantastic restaurants that Holladay offers. The chamber was able to partner with 20+ restaurants this year, and we’re excited about the future of this program,” Selena Kontuly, chamber executive director, said. Another partner of the birthday party was the Holladay Arts Council. They oversaw their annual Plein Art Quick Draw, Art Stroll, and auction according to Sheryl Gillilan, executive director of the arts council. The local businesses who provided donations for the event include: Bill Leslie of Leslie’s French Pastries for the delicious birthday cake; Jeffrey Conrad for design and artwork of the anniversary print, posters, tees, and hats; Relics Frame-makers and Gallery for hosting the art stroll and auction; The Store Fine Foods Market & Deli for providing their

Responsibility comes with age: Holladay@20 By Zak Sonntag | z.sonntag@mycityjournals.com


he year 1999 overflowed with moments of historical importance. “SpongeBob SquarePants” premiered on Nickelodeon. The digital file-sharing company Napster launched and upended our concept of a copyright. Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial ended in acquittal. And people everywhere redoubled their food storage with anxious vigilance in an overdramatized scenario of potential systemic collapse — aka, Y2K. Meanwhile, Utah’s second oldest settlement finally decided, after years of shoestring volunteer efforts, that the time had come to make things official. The people of Holladay voted to become a city. Holladay City celebrated its 20th birthday this year at a September fete that included sing-alongs, giveaway games and, of course, birthday cake. But mile-markers are also a moment for recalibration, and responsibility comes with age. That’s the idea behind Holladay@20 Preparing for Tomorrow, a multi-year, community-centered project aimed at maintaining the city’s quality of life moving into the future. “We need an approach that’s more thought out and responsible. By the time I leave office I want our council to have a clear expectation of what residents expect and how were going to meet those expectations,” Mayor Robert Dahle said during the project’s first open house held in October at City Hall. Holladay@20 is interwoven with a series of ongoing citizen priorities surveys, which continue to narrow in on issues most important to residents. So far, one priority in particular seems to


stand out: roads and sidewalk improvement “All you have to do is walk by one of our schools and you’ll see the sidewalks are crumbling. Roads are breaking apart, and I’m safety-conscious so I make my son wear a reflective belt,” said Jermaine V., a former Air Force pilot. “I think that’s a clear starting place where we can improve.” Other top priorities identified by the surveys include trail system development for walking and running, improved lighting throughout the city and environmentally sustainable buildings. Yet some of our biggest needs are hiding underground. Infrastructure professionals from the firm Lewis & Young inventoried the city’s structural needs and found that one of the city’s biggest vulnerabilities is its drainage system and canals. “People aren’t generally aware of things like storm drains. And it’s pressing because even though we’re a young city, some of our infrastructure is up to 70 years old. The problem is you don’t realize it’s a problem until it’s too late,” said Jim Wilson, a volunteer citizen advisory committee member. But maintenance and improvements aren’t free. The report from Lewis & Young indicated the city’s unfunded needs totaled $75 million projected over the next 10 years. “I’m surprised at how much it costs to do something like drains and canals, especially because we don’t see them. The problem with roads is obvious, but you don’t think much about drain systems,” said Sloane Roney, a recent Holladay homeowner. Even public officials were caught off guard. “It is shocking to see how far behind we are. The cost of these unfunded liabilities are big. Our job will be to educate people about

how these needs have stacked up and come to an agreement about how to meet them,” Dahle said. If the city wants to maintain its standards and improve its aged infrastructure, it will likely need to revamp its traditionally thrifty budgeting practices. “We’ve been able to survive as a city because we’ve been clever with grants and matching funds from the state and private institutions. But that won’t work forever,” Wilson said. Holladay’s certified and comparatively low property tax rate leaves little surplus. And the closure of the Cottonwood Mall resulted in a significant dip in sales tax revenue. Raising new revenues could include things like additional obligation bonds, grants, stormwater fees or a property tax increase. “Nobody wants higher taxes. But they want better sidewalks, parks, roads and welllit streets. Trouble is it’s much more expensive to do remediation than maintenance. So it’d be smart to do something now,” said Allen Eastman, advisory committee member. “Because you don’t realize that a drainage system is messed up until you have a flood. And then it’s a bigger problem.” The citizen advisory committee will hold additional open houses and solicit resident feedback between now and next spring when it intends to supply the city council with an advisory proposal. “If the community decides they don’t want to pay for repairs and they’d rather drive on crumbling roads, then that’s what we’ll do,” Councilmember Paul Fotheringham said. Much needs to be decided before next year’s budget proceedings. But the October open house gave com-

n August, Comcast expanded the pool of eligibility for Internet Essentials — basically, any home already receiving some kind of federal aid, including EBT or Medicaid are now eligible. This means 27,000 more low-income Utahans now qualify for in-home – high-speed – low-cost internet service through Internet Essentials. Comcast’s Internet Essentials program has connected 8 million low-income Americans to affordable internet service – including 112,000 in Utah – and invested more than $650 million in cash and in-kind support for digital literacy training and educational initiatives. As a father of five, I know firsthand how in-home internet can impact children’s education. Most homework assignments today often required the use of a computer and internet, whether it be to do light research, read material, or type up an essay – it is absolutely essential to be connected in our modern, digital age. Affordable internet offers an array of opportunities to gain access to job skills, access health information, promote smarter shopping and civic engagement, and use of e-government services as an alternative to the sometimes-costly process of traveling to government offices in person.

ESSENTIALS Those without access to in-home internet service may have a greater need to access government services and may not realize more and more of those services are available online. Additionally, some parents may not understand how essential the Internet has become for students, especially those in underperforming schools. Comcast understands when people – who would otherwise not have access – connect to the internet they disproportionately improve their quality of life — particularly for older and poorer Utahans. For example, next-generation applications will focus on connected homes and digital health care — essential tools for helping seniors age in place. That’s one of the reasons it is imperative to increase digital equity and close the digital divide in Utah.

5 historic Holladay homes featured in Modern Home Tour By Stephanie DeGraw | s.degraw@mycityjournals.com

The Robert J. Hawks backyard and patio featured in the home show. (Stephanie DeGraw/City Journals)


he quiet tree-lined street where one-story homes hug the landscape showcased the Salt Lake Modern Home Tour recently. The tour featured mid-century architecture sponsored by Preservation Utah, formerly known as the Utah Heritage Foundation. They have been doing historic home tours for decades according to David Amott, Preservation Utah’s interim executive director. “Our fall tour features exclusively on modernist architecture from the 1940s to the 1970s. Our spring tour focuses on homes built in the 1930s.” This area of Holladay/Cottonwood began as Lakewood Farm in 1900 by James Henry Moyle, one of the most influential Utah politicians in the early 20th century. In the early 1950s, the land was developed as a large lot subdivision. “We did not choose this particular neighborhood. This neighborhood happily found us,” Amott said. “The neighborhood is full of great homes that tell a fantastic story, but many of these same homes are being torn down and replaced by much larger builds that do not complement the community,” he said. In working with this neighborhood we realized that one of the best ways to get people to know the Cottonwood Club’s story would be to ‘invite them into’ and personally experience this story, so to speak.” One homeowner, Diana Johnson, explained her attraction to buying an older home. “These neighborhoods are beautiful and interesting, and the homes are well built. They tell us something about what it was like to live in an important historical time in our country — post–World War II — about our values, hopes and dreams,” she said. “The neighborhoods are walkable. The trees are very important to me, and are also historic.”

There is a giant London plane tree in her front yard well over 50 years old. The trees provide shade and a sense of constancy to the neighborhood, as well as helping to improve the effects of climate change, she added. Holladay is a designated Tree City USA. Each time an existing home is demolished, most, if not all, of the trees are removed. New trees are to be replanted according to the Holladay city code. “But it will take many decades for them to reach the stature of the existing tree canopy, which is one of the characteristics that makes Holladay such a desirable place to live,” she said. Many of the modernist homes in this neighborhood involved a collaborative effort between Stephen Macdonald, an architect; V. Douglas Snow, a prominent Utah-based artist; Arthur Munse, a structural engineer; Noal Betts and Blair Bowen, interior designers; and Richard Hatch, a landscape architect. These individuals gathered together to discuss culture, politics, and how they could collectively “improve” conservative Utah via modernist art, architecture and other artistic creative endeavors, according to Amott. Throughout the tour, attendees commented on how “thoughtful” the homes were in terms of space, materials, setting, design, etc. Macdonald’s use of partitioned space created homes that encouraged social engagement by making private spaces like bedrooms small while opening up public spaces for maximum human interaction. He created “sanctuaries” within homes with atriums and walled gardens, and engaged with other cultures to enrich his architecture. Some homes feature Japanese and Brazilian modernist motifs in much of his architecture. Macdonald played with materials such as precast concrete in creative, new ways. He pushed to

the edge of residential design in mid-century Utah. When Amott was invited to view the neighborhood, he witnessed a Macdonald home on Lone Peak Drive being demolished. “Not surprisingly, the tear-downs in this neighborhood have made many of the neighbors upset. They want to help the community appreciate the history that surrounds them. The history that many community members have likely never recognized or have always taken for granted. This was the genesis for our tour,” he said. Johnson hopes to preserve the feeling of permanence and history of the neighborhood, as well as protect the low profile of the homes that hunkered into the landscape, rather than towering above it like so many homes built today. “The new houses being built are generally large and tower over the existing homes in the neighborhood, destroying the sense of cohesiveness that has existed for years,” she said. The lack of affordable housing is happening in Salt Lake County and many places around the country. Many of the homes being torn down are modest homes in size and stature. They are being replaced with homes that sell for nearly $1 million or more. “Some original houses could be renovated, as many in the neighborhood have been, creating good homes for seniors or young, first-time home buyers. Many of the older homes never come on the market before being snatched up by developers with plans to demolish and replace them,” Johnson said. The tear-down phenomenon is not unique to Holladay’s Cottonwood Club community. In Holladay, Millcreek and elsewhere, people or developers often buy a house for the lot it stands on, not for the

house, Amott said. People tear down these houses without thinking twice. Most people don’t realize that communities like Holladay contain some of the most important and interesting architecture in all of Utah, Amott said. Before Holladay was a suburb, wealthy Utahans built large summer homes designed as a reprieve from June to August heat. Residents commuted by automobile or streetcar to jobs in downtown Salt Lake City. “Holladay still has a handful of architecturally impressive, historic homes, but they are disappearing oh so quickly,” he said. Amott encourages people to discover the history of their homes and share. One not only learns about their home but also about their neighborhood and the larger community. If one learns about people who lived in the past they can become friends. “As you learn what their hopes and dreams were, you begin to sympathize with them, and soon you see your neighborhood with completely new eyes,” Amott said. Homes older than 50 years old can be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. An entire neighborhood can apply to the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register provides (1) tax credits for undertaking historically sensitive renovations to your house, (2) registering the history of your house with the State Historic Preservation Office, who will preserve this history for future generations, (3) and plaques you can put on your house to notify one and all that “here lies history.” For more information, contact Preservation Utah at 801.533-0858 or www.preservationutah.org. l

Little Free Libraries are sprouting up By Stephanie DeGraw | s.degraw@mycityjournals.com


ooks are not going the way of the dinosaur thanks to another Little Free Library. The Searle family donated one for their Alvera Circle neighborhood. A celebration featuring free books, crafts, family-friendly activities and refreshments was held Sept. 27. “Our Little Free Library doesn’t just belong to us. It belongs to the whole community,” Marion Searle said. “It’s our hope this Little Free Library will bring a little happiness, a little more connection and a destination spot for youth, mothers and fathers and grandparents to come and sit a moment and read a book. Our Little Free Library and book bench will bring a smile and a quiet spot to sit and relax for a moment.” Known as the world’s largest book-sharing movement, Little Libraries is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Searle said these libraries complement our public library system by providing another place to find a fun book to read. To see a list of locations, visit www.LittleFreeLibrary.org. A son who wanted to honor his mother, who was a teacher, created the international group. In 2009, Todd H. Bol placed a Little Free Library in his front yard in Hudson, Wisconsin. “I believe in a Little Free Library on every block and a book in every hand. I believe people can fix their neighborhoods, fix their communities, develop systems of sharing, learn from each other, and see that they have a better place on this planet to live,” Bol said. The late founder believed in the power of individuals to change the world through acts of kindness. Volunteer stewards repair their own and other Little Libraries in their areas. They create networks of book-sharing boxes and work to strengthen the sense of community. “Little Free Library stewards are the backbone of the Little Free Library network and the movement would never have grown so quickly without the support and dedication of volunteer stewards worldwide,” Bol said. There are over 90,000 Little Free Libraries in all 50 states in America and in 91 countries, from Argentina to Zambia. Thousands of neighbors have connected for the first time, and they have shared over 120 million books. The Little Free Library nonprofit organization focuses on inspiring a love of reading, building community and sparking creativity. Throughout 2019, more libraries were built, and awards and giveaways were established to honor the volunteers who watch over the program. There is also an Impact Li-

brary Program to assist 10 underserved communities around the United States to get their Little Free Libraries. These libraries can make a huge impact on the world, according to the U.S. Department of Education. “Twothirds of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. Over 70% of America’s inmates cannot read above a 4th-grade level.” The Little Library’s motto is “Take a book; share a book. Always a gift; never for sale.” The coordinators of the library said they were searching for children’s books. All publications are welcome, including cookbooks and good magazines, Searle said. “Rules for my library? Please take your boxes of books to charity and not my door. This is a little library box and so only put in your best offering — a book you really enjoyed and want to share with others,” she said. The family set up the Little Free Library at their own expense. “I just wanted to do something creative and fun for the community. It just felt like the right thing to do. Besides, I have been purging my home of books! I have so many and a Little Library seemed like a good thing

to start. I had plenty of books to stock it!” Searle said. Searle loved books from a young age and hopes to pass that enthusiasm for books on to today’s youth. “I remember the very first time I ever walked from my home to the old Millcreek Library and took my first book off of the shelf to read. It was ‘The Princess and the Goblins’ by George MacDonald. I LOVED that fairytale/fantasy book, not realizing at the time that George MacDonald influenced C.S. Lewis as well as J.R.R. Tolkien. It’s where some of Tolkien’s ideas for goblins came from for his books,” she said. Anyone interested in having a Little Library in their neighborhood can purchase kits on the website. There are many choices in all colors and styles. The group also furnishes an official plaque. The Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation and the American Library Association honored the Little Free Library nonprofit organization. Reader’s Digest named them one of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America.” To learn about donating to or setting up a Little Free Libraries, visit www.littlefreelibrary.org. l

City council declares renewable energy study ‘no-brainer’ By Zak Sonntag | z.sonntag@mycityjournals.com


he Holladay City Council in October passed the resolution, “Expressing the City’s Intent to Study and Consider Participation in the Community Renewable Energy Act of the State of Utah.” The state law, HB 411, incentivizes municipalities to move to 100 renewable energy by the year 2030. “We individually and collectively need to deal in some small way with climate change, especially as our federal government has not. This is a step in the right direction,” Councilmember Steve Gunn said. The council’s unanimous support of the resolution is consistent with its constituency’s growing concern over environmental issues, indicated by the community priorities survey. The survey, commissioned by the council and administered by Y2 Analytics in the years 2017 and 2019, revealed that “Environmentally sustainable buildings (and moving away from non-renewable energy)” is a high priority across all age groups in both polls. “Tonight was a success. It shows that Holladay and Utah are joining the rest of the country in the revolution to move to renewable energy. It’s a substantial step forward,” said Lindsay Beebe, attending community member.

The state law was passed partly in response to Utahns’ swelling discontent with climate issues, particularly in reaction to an accruing body of evidence showing that air-pollution puts Wasatch Front families at greater health risk, including higher risk of miscarriage, premature death in the elderly and blood vessel damage even in young populations. However, for Holladay residents, the bill’s impact on local air quality will be peripheral. “The truth is this bill may have a limited impact on our air pollution. It’s much more about the climate generally than air pollution specifically,” said Steven Glaser, chemist and environmental consultant. Rocky Mountain Power is the primary supplier of energy to Holladay residents, and because that energy is generated from coal plants outside the valley, its immediate repercussions to the city’s air quality are minimal. However, Glaser believes moves like this will have an impact on consumer behavior in ways that may alter air-quality outcomes. “The majority of our air pollution comes from automobile emissions. And when people know their electricity is being generated from wind or solar, they’re going to be more


incentivized to get electric cars, which will bring pollution down,” Glaser said. With climate-related threats mounting rapidly, many would like to see the transitions to renewable take place sooner. But amongst energy suppliers and policy experts there is a consensus that shifting before 2030 is unpractical. “The reason we can’t do it any sooner is because of cost. We’ve got power plants that are integrated with our communities. Even if renewable is cheaper, it’s not necessarily cheaper for us,” said France Barral, mother and community member, clapping loudly at the resolutions passage. “It’s like having a mortgage. The power plants have another 10 years of life—what do you do with this fixed cost?” The council blazed through debate to quickly sweep up yes-votes. The resolution’s easy passage owes partly to the fact that it doesn’t make any major changes. “This step is a no-brainer. It’s low-hanging fruit. It just puts us in a larger process so we can contribute to solutions for addressing the issue,” Councilman Paul Fotheringham said. Councilman Brett Graham agreed. “It gives us options. It doesn’t bind us. We’re all

in favor of things that help with the climate, and because it allows us to study it, I’m in support.” l

most satisfying decades of your life. Located in Holladay, the 77 beautiful and spacious apartments nestle under the same roof as a professional salon, a library, an ice cream and pastry bar and a busy activities room. Residents can live in a secure, comfortable environment while keeping the same level of lifestyle they maintained at the peak of their retirement — without having to worry about the laundry, cleaning or cooking. Three times a day, residents select meals from a diverse menu prepared by the community’s chef. The dining room is a popular meeting place for visiting family members to share meals with their loved ones. A variety of exercises, social events and organized outings keep experiences fresh and allow residents to keep their lives as busy and active as they would like. There’s everything from craft nights to marshmallow roasting on the spacious patio. The hardwood-trimmed hallways are painted in warm, creamy tones, and large windows look toward the mountains. Whether studio-style, one-bedroom or two-bedroom, each apartment is beautifully

styled and has plenty of space for residents’ personal belongings. Though Abbington Senior Living might sound more like a resort than a care home, its passionate and professional staff bring the same level of dignity and style when caring for assisted living and memory care residents. Well-trained nursing staff members carefully craft individual care plans alongside residents and family members to fit residents’ unique needs. Music therapy and a comforting, secure environment contribute to memory care residents’ beneficial experience, and a nurse is on-call 24/7. Members of the staff enjoy taking Abbington Senior Living residents on organized outings, including trips on the Heber Valley Historic Railroad or to the University of Utah for a lunch and learn experience. Staff members often pair up with residents for one-on-one outings tailored to their specific interests. After all, just because some residents are unable to drive themselves shouldn’t stop them from living life to the fullest. Last month, a care staff member and some residents visited Hill Aerospace Mu-

seum in Ogden. For one United States Air Force veteran, this was a unique and deeply meaningful opportunity to reminisce — and a drive he likely wouldn’t have taken alone at this stage. Thanks to the staff, another resident recently visited his old workspace to greet dear friends. The Romney family’s beloved Veda lived in memory care at Abbington Senior Living for the last years of her life. The family says they were happy to see the staff become like a second family to her. Ultimately, Abbington Senior Living offers seniors a great place to age gracefully, and it gives family caretakers peace of mind. Come and take a look for yourself — the staff will happily give you a personal tour. Abbington Senior Living will soon open a new location in Murray. You can also find Abbington Senior Living Communities in Lehi, Mapleton and Heber. Call or text the Holladay location at 801-432-7003. The Holladay location is at 2728 E. 3900 South.

Jeffrey Conrad contributed artwork for the city’s birthday merchandise. “I studied a lot of the history of Holladay and there was a lot to draw from. That said, most find adventure and connection with Mt.

A showcase for all we do: Harvest Festival at Wasatch Waldorf By Heather Lawrence | heather.lawrence@mycityjournals.com


asatch Academy hosted their annual Harvest Festival on Oct. 12. The festival is a fundraiser for the charter school, but it also offers a chance for the community to get together. Students also have the chance to put their curriculum into practice through a farm stand, music performances and exploration of local artisan vendors. Brandy Lund is a resident of Holladay and the Harvest Festival coordinator. “It is an opportunity to gather as a community to celebrate the abundance of summer and the harvest of fall. There is live music, games, crafts, food and a vendor market. The festival is open to the public and admission is free,” Lund said. The festival covered most of the school’s outdoor campus and went from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. People purchased tickets to use at booths. Dozens of vendors sold everything from clothing to crystals to produce. Principal Emily Merchant said the festival was a great success. “I feel like we had a fantastic turnout. People both within our school community and in the greater Holladay community attended, which we love. It looks like we brought in more money than last year, which is exciting and encouraging,” Merchant said. Meghan Zurkan is the outgoing fund-

raising chair and a board member. She said funds raised from the Harvest Festival go directly to run the school. “This is one of two main fundraising events that the school hosts. Funds are used to support additional faculty and staff and specialty programs.” Zurkan said Waldorf schools have a specific vision which fundraisers help support. “Waldorf schools are noted for movement classes, farming and gardening programs, fine arts and practical arts. Offering [these] courses alongside … imaginative academic curriculum takes a lot of resources. Fundraising is essential to helping create the vision of the school,” Zurkan said. In addition to crafts run by the school, there were food trucks and a stage set up for students to perform. The vendors were chosen specifically by the school staff. “We try to curate vendors who do handmade crafts. We want them to be reflective of the types of things our students do,” Merchant said. The Waldorf curriculum can include things that aren’t taught to the same level in traditional schools, like farming and arts. “We had a farm stand where we sold the produce that comes from our farm program. One of the vendors was beekeeper Douglas Harper. He helps the students with the bees that we keep behind the Lion’s Club. These

things are directly connected to the students and what they do in school,” Merchant said. Another part of the curriculum is music. “The Harvest Festival is a nice showcase for the things we do at school. We set up a stage and had performances from students and classes,” Merchant said. Zurkan said that when the seasonal festival meets the curriculum and serves the community, it can be magical. “The intention is a truly magical celebration of the season that aligns with the values of Waldorf education.

We work to keep it aligned with our school’s mission so that it feels distinctly different from a carnival or media-rich event,” Zurkan said. With the right mix, Merchant said they’re on to something that is good for the whole community. “The feedback I’ve gotten is that families and children had a great time. We plan on doing it again next year. And we hope it continues to grow not just within our school, but for the entire community,” she said. l

Got some milk? It’s not so easy choosing one to drink these days By Amber Allen | a.allen@mycityjournals.com


epending on your age, you may remember a time when milk was just milk. That is no longer the case. Today, there all different kinds of milk available: cow’s milk, soy milk and almond. But wait! There’s even more. You can also get coconut milk, oat milk and cashew milk. Variety is a great thing, but is one kind of milk better than another? Here’s an overview on each type to help you decide.

drinking a soy milk with minimal processing. Your body might struggle to metabolize and recognize processed foods. When food items are highly processed, they often contain more preservatives, which may cause inflammation.

Almond milk

In the past, classic cow’s milk was considered the gold standard of healthy eating. Cow’s milk contains calcium, vitamin B12, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and phosphorus, all nutrients that human bodies need. Back then, cow’s milk had no competition because the alternatives didn’t contain the proper amount of nutrition. Manufacturers became wise to this and started researching ways to compete with milk, and now, you have choices.

Original and sweetened almond milk includes added sugar. In this case, it’s better for your health to purchase unsweetened almond milk or a light variety of it. Almond milk naturally has a nutty and sweet flavor. It also features a silky texture. This type of milk is low in calories and high in minerals and vitamins like vitamins D, A and E along with potassium, iron and zinc. You can purchase almond milk from the grocery store, or make it yourself by soaking almonds overnight in a pot for as long as two days. Then, drain and rinse them. Last, grind the almonds using fresh water.

Soy milk

Cashew milk

Cow’s milk

Soy milk is different from cow’s milk in that it’s almost completely protein. It’s low in fat, and if you buy the type of soy milk that is unsweetened, then it’s low in sugar, too. Soy milk is a good option if you’re dieting or just watching your caloric intake. If you want to try soy, then look for a brand that’s organic and non-GMO. That way, you’ll be

You might prefer cashew milk because it has a creamy taste. Some milk brands include more nuts than other nut-based milks, so be sure to check the ingredient list if you want more in your diet. Naturally, cashew milk contains 4 grams of protein for each serving. It also has 8% of your daily iron. Like other nut-based milks, sweetened versions include

cane sugar, so keep an eye out for it if you’re looking for ways to cut the sugar out of your diet.

Coconut milk

Coconut milk contains more saturated fats than other milk varieties. It has a nice creamy consistency. Also, most people report that it has a pleasant flavor, but coconut milk doesn’t hold up nutritionally when you compare it to soy milk and cow’s milk. You might want to use it in recipes but not as a replacement for the milk that you drink.

Oat milk

Oat milk is made from oats that include 2 to 3 grams of fiber per serving, which is a healthy amount for most people. If you need more fiber, then look for a brand that includes chicory root fiber. Fiber is good for your digestive system, and it will work to support your health in general.

A tough choice

While variety gives you options, having more to choose from can be tough. When it comes to milk varieties, you’ll need to try different ones out to find the right milk for your taste buds and your diet. Grab a few containers from the store and have fun in the milk-tasting process. l

MAYOR’S MESSAGE November is the month of thanksgiving, a time to pause and reflect on the many blessings we share as citizens of this great land. Our Interfaith Council recently finalized its annual Pre-Thanksgiving Interfaith Service. This inspirational event traditionally kicks off the holiday season (details enclosed). This year’s program will not disappoint, two motivational speakers accompanied by equally impressive musical performances. There is no better way to get in a proper frame of mind as the holidays approach. Please join us for this special evening, and don’t forget to bring a few donations for the Cottonwood High School Food Pantry! The Monday following Thanksgiving Weekend is our annual Tree Lighting on The Plaza. Hot chocolate, youth carols and a possible visit from Santa (If your kids have not been naughty:) We hope to see you there as well! We commonly associate the winter season with the holidays, but it also means “ inversion season”. It’s a time for us to remember the role and responsibility we all play in mitigating individual impacts to our air shed. Some obvious things you can do:

UFA Safety Message – Carbon Monoxide Captain Dan Brown, Unified Fire Authority This month we will talk about carbon monoxide (CO). For many of us, CO is a scary hazard as it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless poison gas. We rely on specialized equipment to alert us of the presence of CO. While we respond to carbon monoxide (CO) calls year round, as the weather gets colder, that number increases. The following information has been taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website www.cdc.gov. Where is CO found? CO is found in fumes produced any time you burn fuel in cars or trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, or furnaces. What are the symptoms of CO poisoning? The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. CO symptoms are often described as “flulike.” People who are sleeping can die from CO poisoning before they have symptoms.

• Do not burn wood during yellow and red burn days. Research is corroborating the serious impacts that wood burning particulates have on our health. It’s especially impactful to those with breathing issues, the elderly and expectant mothers.

Who is at risk from CO poisoning? Everyone is at risk for CO poisoning. Infants, the elderly, people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or breathing problems are more likely to get sick from CO.

• Car Pool, use public transit, combine your trips for the day, walk or use active transportation modes when possible---all helpful!

• Install a battery-operated or battery back-up CO detector in your home (preferably in the main bedroom or in the hallway) and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. • Service your heating system, water hear, and any other gas, oil, appliances yearly. • Vent all gas appliances properly. See www.cdc.gov for more information. • Never use a gas range/oven or portable gas camp stove to heat the inside of a home, cabin or camper. • Never run your car or truck inside a garage that is attached to a house even with the garage door open. Always open the garage door when running a vehicle.

• Adhere to no idling restrictions in the city. The rule of thumb is 30 seconds, then turn your key to off. Resist the temptation of warming up your car for extended periods. • Lower your thermostat to 68 or below, especially after you go to bed. These are just a few minor suggestions. I encourage you to visit UCAIR. org for a more comprehensive list of ways you can assist in this effort. We all need to do our part. Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving Weekend!!! –Rob Dahle, Mayor The City of Holladay Invites you to its Annual

Festival Tree Lighting CELEBRATION Monday, December 2, 2019 7:00 pm on the Plaza

• Carols performed by the Oakwood Owl Chorale • Hot Chocolate & Santa • Everyone Welcome! A Special THANK YOU to Jim & Lucille Kastanis on Flamingo Dr For donating the Festival Tree this year!

These are just a few preventative measures to prevent CO poisoning in my home:

Finally, if your CO detector ever alarms, get everyone out of the house to fresh air or a neighbor’s home and call 911. If you are unable to leave the home, open all the doors and windows and turn off any potential sources and wait for us to arrive. The fire department will respond with our own CO monitoring equipment, as well as medical equipment if CO poisoning has occurred. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at dbrown@unifiedfire.org

Fall Leaf Collection The annual Fall Leaf Collection Program will be running through November 30. During this time Holladay residents can pick up leaf bags at: • Holladay Lions Fitness Center: 1661 E. Murray Holladay Rd. • Mt. Olympus Senior Center: 1635 E. Murray Holladay Rd. • Holladay City Hall: 4580 S. 2300 E. • Cottonwood Ball Complex: 4400 S. 1300 E. (north-side parking lot) PLEASE DO NOT drop off bags at City Hall. WFWRD leaf bags are limited to 1 roll (10 bags) per household, and available while supplies last. Residents can also use and drop off their own purchased leaf bags or lawn bags, as long as they only contain leaves.



Holladay Receives Multiple Awards for Holladay Village Excellence In the last couple of years, the City of Holladay has received several notable awards for the Holladay Village from various organizations including Envision Utah, The Congress for New Urbanism, Urban Design/ American Society of Landscape Architecture (ASLA) and the American Planning Association, Utah Chapter. These prestigious awards are a reflection of the vision and commitment by the City to invest significant time, finances and resources into the creation, and enhancement of the Village – our historic and traditional downtown area. In just the last few years, the “Holladay Village” (and our new Fire Station just down the street) has become iconic in the minds of City residents, visitors and other communities as an inviting and attractive place for gathering, socializing, shopping and doing business. A debt of gratitude is owed to early community leaders and city officials for prioritizing the revitalization of the heart of Holladay and to all the residents who patiently waited for it grow from ideas and pretty pictures in “master plans” to something tangible, fun and endearing.

Holladay residents discuss their Thanksgiving traditions


t’s that time of year when things appear more gold than green and we cozy up indoors. Retreating inward to our homes includes celebrating Thanksgiving. The History Channel (www.history.com/ topics/thanksgiving/history-of-thanksgiving) states, “In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.” While there are harvest festivals all over the world, this began our uniquely American take on the celebration. The Holladay Journal asked a few residents to discuss their Thanksgiving Day traditions. The major theme was the spirit of gathering and family. Artist and longtime Holladay resident Walt Clark said his favorite thing about Thanksgiving is “the family coming together, the interactions, the friendly, kind interactions between siblings. It warms your heart.” “The big tradition is turkey and hav-

By Sona Schmidt-Harris | s.schmidtharris@mycityjournals.com ing accompaniments to that turkey, but last year we had prime rib, and I don’t know, I think we’re going to have it again this year. It spoils you,” he said. Holladay resident Pamela Call said, “Our Thanksgivings change a lot depending on the year! The one thing that is always common is that it is all about family. We just want to be together whether we are up at a cabin in Timber Lakes, staying at a condo in Sun Valley or planning a fun-at-home dinner. Our focus is family time. We love making pies the night before and getting the grandchildren involved. Fresh flowers, place cards, a children’s craft, yummy homemade rolls, a large roasted turkey, making Christmas plans and happiness are just a few of our constant traditions.”   “My granddaughters and daughtersin-law all help with the pies. A new pie we created last year will now be a tradition — raspberry cream pie. It turned out yummy!” “At Timber Lakes, we had nothing extra fancy, but we had a fabulous time, and it even started to snow! We made gingerbread houses and went sledding on the Friday after. Kids had a ball. We took a photo of my husband and I and our eight grandkids for our Christmas card while up there too.”   Holladay residents and siblings Evelyn

Artist and Holladay resident Walt Clark’s favorite thing about Thanksgiving is “the family coming together, the interactions, the friendly, kind interactions between siblings.” (Sona Schmidt-Harris/City Journals)

Pollaehne and Harold Schmidt grew up in a German-American home. Their Thanksgivings typically had a German twist with “rotkohl,” or red cabbage, served alongside turkey. Also alongside the turkey was sausage-filled stuffing. Initially, instead of pie, streuselkuchen and pound cake were served for dessert. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, their mother, the late Erna Schmidt, liked to invite a

newly immigrated family from Germany to their Salt Lake City home. Often, these families had endured the ravages of World War II, and Mrs. Schmidt wanted to provide a sense of security and welcome. No matter what is eaten, Holladay residents believe Thanksgiving is about the spirit of gathering and, where needed, reconciliation and healing. l

Octavia Gordon follows in the footsteps of teen prodigies at the Gifted Music School


young Holladayite will follow in the footsteps of violin prodigies Caroline Durham and Ezekial Sokoloff. As winners of their respective string divisions at the Music Teachers National Association Competition, Durham and Sokoloff appeared in the Holladay Journal previously. Perhaps this is the future of Octavia Gordon, age 12. She was accepted into the Gifted Music School and will play violin in the school’s Conservatory Orchestra for the 2019–20 season. Acceptance into the Gifted Music School Conservatory is by audition only. Octavia will be awarded a full scholarship valued at $11,000 per year. She said, “It’s a really good school, and I will learn lots from it.” The youngest of eight children, Octavia was born on August 8 (08/08). With all those eights in her beginning, her parents thought the name “Octavia” was appropriate. Inspired by some of her older siblings, she began playing the violin at 3 years old. Though only at the Gifted Music School a short time, she told the Holladay Journal, “It is really fun. I like the classes and the teachers. They’re really helpful with all the music we do.”

By Sona Schmidt-Harris | s.schmidtharris@mycityjournals.com Like her predecessor Durham, Octavia would like to go to Julliard. (Durham was accepted to both Julliard and Columbia and is pursuing a double major in music and neuroscience). The similarities don’t stop there. Octavia studied with Durham’s former teacher, and she will be studying with Eugene Watanabe at the Gifted Music School (another teacher of Durham’s). Octavia has shared her gift with the elderly in nursing homes. Tiffany Gordon, Octavia’s mother, said, “She has developed some lasting friendships. There was one woman that she developed a friendship with. She passed away. She never had grandchildren, and Octavia was her adopted granddaughter.” Tiffany Gordon also said Octavia has developed wonderful friendships within the Gifted Music School. It is also a support to parents of children who lead disciplined, musical lives. To learn more about the Gifted Music School, please see their website: www.giftedmusicschool.org/ l

The Mamma Mia! cast of Olympus High School proved that disco never dies. (Heather Lawrence/City Journals)


lympus High’s theater department presented “Mamma Mia!” Oct. 8–14. Breaking their tradition of double casting (except for the roles of Tanya and Rosie), the large cast made good use of the ABBA dance music on which the show is built. In addition, two sing-along matinees were held on Oct. 11 and 12. “I always want to sing when I hear this music, so it’s fun to come to the sing-along show. It’s fun to jam out and people can’t get mad — you’re supposed to be singing!” said Olympus senior Caroline Martin at the Oct. 12 performance. Sing-along books with printed lyrics were handed out at the matinees. Olympus’s show was carried by its talented leads, including Madeline Jones. Jones played Sophie, the 20-year-old blushing bride who’s been raised on a Greek island. Her mom, Donna, played by Ashlyn Hunt, has never told her the identity of her father. Sophie secretly invites all three of the men who could be her father to her wedding. Jones’s strong singing voice was upstaged only by her fantastic dancing. ABBA is synonymous with disco, and disco is synonymous with dancing. Susan DeMill, choreography director at Olympus, used Jones’s and the other leads’ dancing abilities to great effect. Dance numbers came fast and often, and usually filled the whole stage. DeMill wrote in her program notes that she “realized I had listened to this music for a lifetime. To now choreograph and make my own visual pictures is almost too dear, and a little surreal. I am looking back with a twinkle to my young self and realizing that this show brings it full-circle for me.”

DeMill’s thinking that the show had come full-circle was spot on. Plenty of current high school students enjoyed the production along with those from the ABBA generation, despite the fact that much of the music is 45 years old. “There is usually a good turnout from students. Our friends talk the whole year about how hard they work in theater, so we love to come watch them. Our production hall is really nice. It was designed to be a great place to watch shows,” Martin said. One of the audience favorites was “Lay All Your Love on Me.” In this scene, Sophie’s fiancée Sky is enticed away for a scuba diving bachelor party. Sky, played by Preston Brotherson, willingly goes, but only after his friends march on stage in full scuba gear. Their hilarious dance included a sortof chorus line — but instead of kicking, the scuba men sit down in a line and pretend to row forward. Olympus senior Oliver Jones said he’s always liked the music in the show. He loved the chance to sit in the audience and sing along. “It’s hard not to sing, especially when it’s live. It feels like [Olympus] does shows that are more professional than other high schools. They’re really good,” he said. Regardless of the level of talent, some of the themes and storylines in the show are problematic for teenagers: a child with three possible fathers seems more like daytime talk show fodder than a great idea for a high school musical. Director Robin Edwards wisely drew attention away from the innuendos. She put it instead on the strong female friendships with Donna and her Dynamos, played by Anna

Johnson, Erin Probst, Abigail Cochrane and Eliza Hebdon. The show is heavy on female empowerment, and the friends “reminisce about the time they were an awesome girl band,” wrote Edwards. “They’re keeping the show pretty PG,” said Ruby Finlayson, a senior at Olympus who came to the Oct. 12 sing-along. For her, it was all about the music. “I was raised on it,” said Finlayson. The chaos of the wedding, Donna’s heartbreak and the paternity search all come to a head at Sophie’s wedding. Donna sees all three men from her past: Harry Bright, played by Deven Peterson, Bill Austin, played by Dale Henry, and Sam Carmichael, played by Jared Muse. The three men are excited at the prospect of having a daughter (because they skipped the diaper stage), so all three take a chance at walking her down the aisle. In the meantime, Donna’s old feelings of hurt toward Sam resurface. Hunt belted her heart out in her big ironic solo number, “The Winner Takes It All.” But don’t despair — there was a happy ending, and the cast brought their A game for the big finale. At its core, the show has a lot of heart, and is as much about the love of friends as it is romantic love. Which might be the reason Edwards, DeMill and music director Vicki Belnap decided to present it at Olympus this year. In notes that echo the themes of the show, DeMill wrote, “I also thank Robin and Vicki for being my best friends. I know them, appreciate them and won’t forget their heart spilled all over our stage.” l

Skyline crisis team urges parents and students to reach out to keep kids safe By Heather Lawrence | heather.lawrence@mycityjournals.com


kyline High held a resilience meeting for parents on Oct. 14. The purpose was to teach parents to help their students get through hard times, and ultimately avoid attempts at self-harm. “If there’s just one thing you take away from this tonight, it’s to reach out,” said Victoria Hatton, school psychologist at Skyline. Hatton conducted most of the evening, starting with a presentation. She covered resilience and signs that students may think of harming themselves. “Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress,” Hatton said, quoting the definition from the American Psychological Association. The presentation was similar to the one given to the student body in the past weeks. To reach as many students as possible, Hatton said they gave the presentation during social studies classes. In addition, resiliency will be worked into the English department’s curriculum. It will be presented through social/emotional learning lessons. Hatton is at Skyline full time this year, thanks in part to the community council. They purchased part of her contract so she could work full time there. The time then opened up for a panelist Q&A session. On the panel were Hatton, Skyline Principal Doug Bingham, Suicide Prevention Coordinator Leah Colburn, University of Utah psychiatrist and professor Dr. Doug Gray, USBE Suicide Prevention Specialist Cathy Davis, emergency pediatrician Dr. Chuck Pruitt and Safe UT app representative Denia-Marie Ollerton. The panel took questions written by parents on notecards. One asked how kids are responding to using the Safe UT app. “Skyline is in the top three users of the Safe UT app, and that’s a good thing. Talk about the app with your kids. It’s confidential, anonymous and anyone can use it. There is a two minutes or less response time and it’s as easy as sending a text,” Ollerton said. Another question addresses the stigma of getting help for mental health concerns. “If your child resists or refuses seeking help from a counselor, ask them, ‘Why don’t you want to go? What are you afraid of?’ and then listen,” Gray said. “I’ve been working in this field for over 25 years. More has happened in the last five years to prevent suicide and reduce the stigma of getting help than in the 20 before then. So we’re seeing improvements,” Gray said. One parent asked about the protocol the school follows when the death of a student has been reported. “First we verify. We have Resource Officer Ricci to help with that. We don’t want to put out any misinformation.” Bingham said the next step is to notify the student body, but they have changed the

way they do that. “We don’t make a general announcement anymore. We send people, counselors and other staff to every classroom and tell the students in person that one of their classmates has passed away,” Bingham said.

she herself realized she was using language that was inappropriate. “You need to model the correct behavior. I don’t say things like ‘Kill me now’ when I’m stressed out anymore.”

make sure what you say is validating and empathetic. And then reach out if appropriate. “There are some secrets you don’t keep,” Gray said. One thing that is avoided is reporting by the media. “We know that when the media reports a suicide, then more occur. We don’t want it to become a cluster of suicides. So schools have a tightrope to walk between getting out information and keeping kids safe,” Gray said. The panel all said that parents can model resilience behaviors for kids. “They need to see you reach out for help. They need to know that no one does it alone. They need to see you fall and then get back up again,” Hatton said. The meeting was well-attended, but could have accommodated hundreds more parents. Someone asked, “How do we engage the parents who aren’t here tonight?” Hatton echoed her theme to reach out. “Post something on social media that you learned tonight, talk to other parents the next time you see them. Don’t just reach out when things are wrong, reach out when you learned something.” The Safe UT app is available for phones and also as a website at safeut.med.utah.edu. The National Suicide Prevention line and chat is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-2738255. l

After that, the school informs the parents of the student body, contacts the district, creates a crisis team and focuses on the needs of the “kids who are still here.” They respect the wishes of the family in choosing what information to share. One parent read a text message question from her daughter who asked about missing homework and getting behind in class due to the grieving process. Hatton and Bingham said that when that happens, students should speak with teachers or with administrators. “They can come tell me, and most teachers would help them get caught up,” Bingham said. Other questions addressed what to do if kids are joking about suicide. Hatton said that

Other panelists discussed the logistics of keeping kids safe. “If you have pills, if you have guns or ammunition, go home tonight and do what you need to do to keep them out of the hands of your kids. I can’t stress that enough,” Colburn said. Two points focused on what has proven to work, and what hasn’t. The first is asking the question outright: “Are you thinking of killing yourself?” “The Mayo Clinic produced this video, and it discusses asking this question. It has been shown that this question itself doesn’t raise the risk of suicide. It opens the door to a conversation. But it’s a hard question to ask,” Hatton said. Hatton and Gray both said that whatever the answer is, just listen. When you do reply,

Postponed: Holladay planners and residents express frustration and relief when deadline is later than expected By Zak Sonntag | z.sonntag@mycityjournals.com


or several months, Holladay city planners have worked furiously on proposals to amend the General Plan in order to comply with a new state law that requires municipalities to incorporate strategies to advance affordable housing. But when in October the planning commission geared up for a recommendation on the most divisive aspect of the required changes — the land use chapter of the General Plan — they were flummoxed to learn the deadline was later than expected. “You don’t have to do anything on this right now. We have another 14 months before our land-use and transportation modifications are due,” said Paul Allred, community development director, who hired an extra intern to get everything completed in time. “I’ve been killing myself on this thing. Then I just learned we only need the housing element done, and we have till next year to finish the land-use and transportation elements.” The confusion stems primarily from ambiguity in both the language of the bill as well as its implementation and oversight process. The law, SB 34, requires municipalities like Holladay to incorporate a “moderate income housing element” in their general plans, in order to allow “people with various

incomes to benefit from and fully participate in all aspects of the community life.” It also asks cities to adjust the land-use and transportation elements of their plans for this purpose, which Holladay planners interpreted to mean that three separate chapters of the General Plan needed to be updated. However, the agency charged with overseeing the bill’s implementation, Department of Workforce Services, explained to Allred in October that cities were required only to submit their housing amendments. “I’m frustrated with the state right now, and I think a lot of cities are. Not only have they passed an unfunded mandate, but they’ve been vague about how they expect cities to meet it,” Allred told the commission. At the date of publication, some uncertainty still lingered. The Holladay Journal contacted the bill’s authors, state representatives Jake Anderegg and Val Potter, who both responded by email to say that the deadline was, indeed, approaching fast. “Cities are expected to have their plans in place by Dec. 1, 2019,” Potter said. Anderegg followed up to confirm that he “just reread the bill and I cannot find any references to the deadline being 2020.”

Allred suggested the commission retain momentum and vote to move the amendment process to the city council for the next phase. But the commission resoundingly declined. “Amending the General Plan is a big deal. We need to slow this thing way down,” Commissioner Troy Holbrook said. The decision to close the process was applauded by community members who said the draft left many of their concerns unaddressed. “I appreciate the fact that you’re willing to let the public have an impact. We need to

consider [the amendments] with the heart and soul of our community. If we make a change now that is a little bit hasty, we might regret it down the road,” said Holly Richards, homeowner, whose neighborhood was subject to zoning changes under the prepared draft. For now, despite some uncertainty, city officials feel confident they will be in compliance with the law. But the issue of affordability still looms, and as housing costs continue to rise in the city and across the state, the commission’s next attempt to recommend a proposal might not be a whole lot easier. l

Artist of the Month Marjorie McClure seeks to portray ‘the beauty of the common’ By Sona Schmidt-Harris | s.schmidtharris@mycityjournals.com


etting to Marjorie McClure’s home and studio is a bit complicated. Tucked away in a wooded area of Holladay, there are twists and turns before arriving at her place, much like McClure’s work itself. There are no manicured lawns — only the wild greenery of the area, which she wanted by design. “I’m not urban,” she said. “I’m inspired by Holladay all the time. I wanted the birds. I wanted sanctuary.” McClure was named November’s Artist of the Month by the Holladay Arts Council. The artist’s work will hang in the City Hall foyer throughout November (4580 S. 2300 East, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). In her art, she enjoys abstracting the object. “I just want to push it someplace else — I want to do something else with it. I want to take it a little bit deeper.” For example, she creates leaves that are blue and white, while the integrity and shape of the leaves remain. In some of her leaf creations, she uses a mixed-media technique called “encaustic,” wherein wax is dripped on top of a painting or objects. In Roman times, it was used to preserve art. The effect is kind of a softening of the colors and edges of the subject. McClure said, “I think we’re just stepping over beauty all the time, and people just don’t look at the leaves. People rarely stop to think how exquisite they are.” Another object of interest to her are feathers. She also enjoys re-creating the human form. I focus on “the beauty of the common,” she said. McClure knew she wanted to be an artist when she was a child. She grew up in fields on the east side of the Salt Lake Valley, which inspired her to re-create the beauty she saw. “I think I do it for myself as much as for anyone else. I would paint if I didn’t ever sell a piece of work,” she said. Her favorite medium is oil, though she has worked with other materials as well. Graduating with her bachelor of fine arts at the University of Utah, McClure wanted to go further. “I was kind of terrified to go back to graduate school,” she said. But it turned out that her life experience as an older student was an asset. She then obtained her master’s degree of fine arts at the University of Utah, where she ended up teaching. Of teaching she said, “I loved it. I love their curiosity — I have a lot of students that are artists in the city. It’s like giving away something you love. It’s for in perpetuity; it just keeps rolling down the hill.” McClure also taught at Brighton High School. “I wanted to go back to high school and teach drawing and painting. I had those kids for two or three years, then you can build and watch them blossom,” McClure said.

HolladayJournal .com

Of those who influenced her own work she said, “Somebody else gives you a kernel of something.” Those who inspired her include: John Singer Sargent, Richard Diebenkorn, and the Japanese artists. And she enthusiastically credits her professors at the University of Utah, including Paul Davis, as

Olympus claims second-straight Region 6 football title By Josh McFadden | josh@mycityjournals.com


t’s been a long time since the Olympus football team suffered a loss in league play. Region foes will have to wait another year for their shot at the Titans during the regular season. Olympus completed another unblemished region record, going 6-0 in Region 6 a year after posting a 5-0 mark in the same league. The Titans’ last region loss was on Oct. 13, 2017 at the hands of rival Skyline. The Titans didn’t let history repeat itself this year when they took down the Eagles 4117 on Oct. 16 to close out the regular season. The victory clinched Olympus’ second consecutive region championship, putting the team in position for a first-round state tournament bye. “It is always an honor to win region,” head coach Aaron Whitehead said. “Each year, we have winning region set as one of our goals. We have accomplished it seven of the past nine years. Our kids don’t take it for granted.” New Utah High School Activities Association postseason format follows a ratings percentage index, or RPI, which factors a team’s record along with its opponents’ records and those opponents’ records. Every team in Class 5A will now participate in the playoffs, which get underway Oct. 25, 25 at higher-seeded teams’ home sites. The top six teams get to move right into the second round

on Nov. 1, 2. Once again, the Titans were dominant in their march to a league crown. In the season finale against Skyline, the Titans turned a close game early into a comfortable victory by outscoring the Eagles 27-7 in the final 25 minutes of the contest.

sion.” Assuming the Titans get a first-round playoff bye, the team will have a few weeks to prepare for the state tournament. Whitehead believes if his group stays healthy and executes, it has a chance to make a run in the postseason. He knows the players are dedicated and will give it their all no matter which team Olympus faces. “We have a real good team,” he said. “This is a group that prepares well each week. We hope to keep that going deep into November.” Whitehead will rely on quarterback Frankie Goodson to continue directing the offense. The senior wasn’t asked to throw the ball a lot, but he threw 13 touchdown passes on the year. The running game has been strong. Hopkins had 982 yards rushing and 19 touchdowns during the regular season. Christian Peterson and Scotty Edwards added 387 and 374 yards, respectively. Defensively, Nate Condon intercepted four passes. Emerson Conlon had 53 tackles and 3.5 sacks. l

The Eagles were down just 14-10 late in the second quarter when Mason Lund picked off an Olympus pass and returned it eight yards for a touchdown. A late field goal increased Olympus advantage to 17-10 at the break. From there, it was all Olympus. The Titans pushed the lead to 41-10 with five minutes left in the game. Chase Hopkins had three touchdown runs and a touchdown reception, while Caden Kuhn returned a Skyline pass 40 yards for a TD. The Titans scored at least 41 points in three of their six league games and never surrendered more than 20. Whitehead noticed some similarities between this team and last year’s squad, which reached the Class 5A semifinals. He also was pleased with the way his team responded to getting every team’s best shot each week. “This year is similar to last, as we have a strong group of seniors with great leadership,” he said. “Last year was truly special; I believe that we surprised people.

Fall concert at Olympus Jr. High involves 150 students in performing arts By Heather Lawrence | heatherl@mycityjournals.com


lympus Jr. High presented their fall choir and dance concert on Oct. 9. The choirs and dance classes are directed by Jayne Springman. The concert featured over 150 students and was themed “My Favorite Things.” “Choir has turned out to be one of my daughter’s favorite classes. Over the summer she thought about dropping it for another elective, but I told her to stick with it. I’m glad she did,” said Ava Jacklin. Jacklin’s daughter Esther is in ninth grade and had a solo in the final song “Circle of Life.” The program switched back and forth between choral and dance numbers. It started with all choirs combined singing the school song, “The Star Spangled Banner,” and the Beatles song “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.” Choir members wore coordinated outfits with the girls in blue dresses and the boys in black dress pants and shirts with a blue tie. “I started having the choirs wear outfits when I started teaching here 10 years ago. I keep the same dress so we can pass them down from sibling to sibling, and neighbors also share. [Several] students donate [their outfit and] let students borrow for the year,” Springman said about having the choir dress in coordinated outfits, which is typical in high school, but not junior high. The dance company’s first number was a lyrical dance to the song “Smile.” The group was made up of nearly 30 girls in flowing costumes. Later they changed to black sweats and danced to Will Smith’s “Friend Like Me” from the new “Aladdin” movie. The Dance I class came out in bright blue and pink flapper outfits. The class had over 20 girls performing and danced to a song from the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” It was a joyful match of music, costumes and movement. One of the school’s favorite things might be the new “Aladdin” movie; the vocal ensemble performed another song from the movie, “Speechless.” In the small group of 11 singers, seven took turns at the microphone to sing solos. “I used the girls from my vo-

cal ensemble class for solos because they are eighth and ninth graders, and it gives them a great opportunity to perform and build confidence.” The piano accompanist for all the musical numbers was Christy Olsen, “a retired teacher and a good friend of mine,” Springman said. In addition, several songs used percussion, which was played by Karel McDonogh. “My friend Karel is also a retired teacher whom I taught with at Brockbank Jr. High,” Springman said. One of the most impressive things about Olympus Jr.’s choral program was how many male students were involved: 48. The male chorus sang “Rocky Top,” which had excellent violin accompaniment by Claire and Kate Mayfield. Near the end of the bluegrass standard, several boys jumped out to kick up their heels and get some laughs from the audience. Springman had all the girls from the choirs combine to perform “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music.” This and several other numbers used some choreography. “All the students love to do the choreography. [It’s] a good experience if they want to go on to show choirs in high school The Olympus Jr. High combined choirs concert was Oct. 9. The Dance Company also performed. (Heather or college,” Springman said. The performance, which filled the au- Lawrence/City Journals) ditorium with supporters, ended with two songs by the combined choirs: the ’80s pop song “We Built This City,” and “The Circle of Life” from “The Lion King.” Esther had one of the solos in “The Circle of Life” along with Grace Warner. Esther said Springman is “an amazing teacher. She can be strict, but it helps us.” Esther said she had to audition for her solo, and it was very nerve-wracking, but she loves choir and will offering definitely do it in high school. Traditional Funeral Services • Cremation Esther’s mom was pleasantly surprised to see her daughter perform the solo in front of a 100+ student choir. “She told me she had a solo, but I didn’t know which song it was on until I got here. She did a great job, and I think it’s a great opportunity for these kids,” Jacklin said. l

Alternative Thanksgiving




hanksgiving, aka Turkey Day, is rarely about the turkey anymore, as the percentage of herbivores continues to rise. Thanksgiving isn’t as common anymore either, it seems that “Friendsgiving” is much more prominent. Just as the traditional food and holiday is favoring alternatives, you might need some alternatives for the holiday cooking as well. Since it’s rumored (dare I say, proven?) that the price of turkey spikes for the holiday, let’s find a cheaper alternative for that. Don’t worry, if you’re a diehard carnivore, there’s still meat alternatives for you: which may include stew meat, ham, chicken or fish. Fantastic vegetarian and vegan alternatives exist for everything Thanksgiving. Alternatives to turkey include: cauliflower steaks, pot pie, mushroom Wellington, cauliflower alfredo, gobi musallam (whole roasted cauliflower) and lasagna soup. Alternatives to gravy include: soup, mushroom gravy and onion gravy. Alternatives to stuffing include: stuffed acorn squash or bell peppers, mushroom croissant stuffing and carrot soufflés. Alternatives to mashed potatoes include cauliflower gratin, mac and cheese (preferably topped with bread crumbs), sweet potatoes and scalloped corn casserole. And well, as long as you’re not tossing milk and meat into everything you’re cooking, you won’t need to alter your favorite recipe for green bean casserole, dinner rolls,

cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Luckily, there are many dishes that can appease both the carnivores and herbivores. Sometimes, you just need to split the batch of whatever you’re cooking in half; leaving half for the vegetarians and vegans and half for the carnivores. Pizza, pasta, rice bowls and mashed potatoes all work great for compromise dishes. (Please be mindful of the kitchenware you’re using when cooking these dishes as some vegetarians have nightmares about cross-contamination.) Make sure not to forget the salad! Thanksgiving is a great time to get crazy with salads. Go fruity with a grape salad, a Honeycrisp apple salad, a pear salad, pomegranate salad or a mango-berry salad. Throw some fruit on top of your leafy greens, and you can’t go wrong. Or get rid of those leafy greens altogether and make a “fluffs” or Jell-O salad. If you go this route though, read the ingredients on the package—some fluff’s and Jell-O’s are not vegan friendly. Now, if you haven’t jumped onboard with Friendsgiving yet, consider this your formal invitation. It’s a holiday-themed event centered around fantastic food and friends that doesn’t involve the risk of (politically-charged) arguments with the relatives. If you are hosting or attending a Friendsgiving, you have more options. Since Friendsgiving usually functions more like a potluck, the more extravagant you get with

your food choice(s), the better. Everyone will think about bringing a salad, or potatoes or a pie. Don’t be the person to bring another replica side dish. To avoid duplicates, start a Google doc, or other shareable document, with your friends in advance. You might want to plot out the desired courses in advance: appetizers, mains, sides, drinks, desserts, etc. Then, everyone can play to their strengths. The friend that is strictly carnivore can bring the meat options. And the friend that is strictly vegan can bring the vegan options. The friend that has a dessert Instagram account can bring their homemade cake. And the bartender friend can bring the drinks. When utilizing the Google doc, make sure to note any allergies or other dietary restrictions anyone might have. No one wants to spend their holiday worrying about the availability of an EpiPen. In addition, if there’s going to be a good mix of carnivores, vegetarians and vegans, cookers might want to consider dividing their batches in half, one to include meat and one to exclude any meat or dairy, as mentioned above. And remember folks, whether you’re attending a traditional Thanksgiving or alternative Friendsgiving, please remember to be a good guest. Ask the host what they need help with when you arrive, make sure to help clean up before you leave and, last but not least, express your thanks.

Don’t Forget November


andwiched between October and December, November is the bologna of months. Everyone pulls it out, gives it a sniff, then tosses it in the trash. Once Halloween is over, we blast into a frenzy of Christmas shopping and decorating, forgetting all about this beautiful month full of autumn leaves, crisp apples and carb overload. We need a marketing team to change the perception of November from “Brownish month when we count our blessings” to “A kaleidoscope of excitement. And pie.” Okay, maybe “kaleidoscope” is overkill, and it’s hard to spell, but you get the idea. Thanksgiving continues its reign as the best holiday between Halloween and Christmas but even the cherished turkey day has its opponents. It’s almost impossible to tell the origin story of Thanksgiving without pissing someone off. Let’s just say people living in America (probably not its original name) in the 1600s created the first Chuck-A-Rama, minus the carrot-filled Jell-O. In the U.S., any holiday that has the tagline “An Attitude of Gratitude” is doomed from the start but what if we created a terrifying mascot? People like threats and merchandising. What if Gerta the Ghoulishly Grateful Goose (sold as a freakish Beanie Babies stuffed animal) flies into your bedroom on Thanksgiving Eve to make sure you’re being thankful. Not enough gratitude? She pecks your forehead and flies off with your pumpkin pies. Instead of Elf on the Shelf, how about

Goose on the Loose? You read it here first, people. What else happens in November . . . ? Election Day! The first Tuesday after the first Monday when the moon is full and pythons are mating, is set aside for foreign nations to measure success by screwing up election results with fake social media content. As opposed, to genuine social media content. Consider this year a dry-run for the 2020 Apocalyptic Election to End all Elections. Black Friday is also in November. What if we protest Black Friday sales and refuse to shop or decorate for Christmas until, call me crazy, December 1? Christmas is sneaky. Once you allow Christmas tree lots to set up in November, it’s an easy slide into year-round Christmas where everyone is miserable and broke. Charles Dickens could (posthumously) pen a story where we learn Ebenezer Scrooge was right all along, perhaps titled, “A Christmas Peril.” Movember is also a thing where men are encouraged to grow moustaches to raise awareness for the importance of shaving – and men’s health issues. A group of women have also sworn to stop shaving for the month. That group is called Europe. The first Wednesday in November is Stress Awareness Day, created by parents who realize Christmas is weeks away and their children are reaching frenetic levels of idiocy. Maybe November needs its own alcoholic beverage that we start drinking on this day.

How about a mulled cider with a tequila chaser called the No No November? Veteran’s Day is cool. World Kindness Day is super nice. But let’s tackle the real meaning of November. Pie. Pie is the reason for November. With harvest foods like apples and pumpkins and peaches and pears and banana cream, pie in November is as necessary as breathing, especially if breathing is slathered in homemade whipped cream or served a la mode. So instead of treating November like it’s some type of disgusting mystery meat, can we agree it’s at least hamburger, maybe even a sirloin? Who knows, if we keep slapping Christmas back to its own month we might even enjoy the leaves, the apples – and the pie. Always the pie.
