TREE COMMITTEE AMENDS DRAFT ORDINANCE AFTER HEARING OPPOSITION By Aspen Perry | a.perry@mycityjournals.com

A

fter unanticipated opposition, the tree committee, established in 2011 and comprised entirely of resident volunteers, continues to work with Holladay City on drafting a tree ordinance to protect Holladay’s urban forest, while addressing concerns raised by residents opposed to regulating trees on private property. “It was not set out to try and tell private residents what (to do) with their land, but more of an effort to have folks step back and evaluate all viable options before indiscriminately removing a tree,” said Travis Jones, Holladay resident and member of tree committee. Contrary to the opinion of some, the tree committee was not the driving force of establishing a tree ordinance, committee member DeeDee Richardson explained. The committee was asked to participate in the process given their knowledge and community involvement regarding trees. “Our hope is we can reach an agreement that protects our rapidly decreasing canopy, as well as encourage citizens to be good stewards of our environment,” Richardson said. As she further stated, “Development can and must continue within Holladay, but we need to develop smarter. not harder.” Steve Gunn, District 4 city council member, said the purpose of the tree ordinance was to address two components. The first regards meeting the goal of the recently adopted general plan of the city, which says the city should “sustain and protect the mature tree canopy,” as stated on the Holladay General Plan 2016– 2031, p. 70. The second component of establishing a tree ordinance is to address resident concerns regarding lots consisting of mature trees being clear-cut for development — an issue many residents at the first open house felt has increased over recent years. Despite the city’s initial reasons for establishing a tree ordinance, after an unexpected crowd opposed to the ordinance voiced their concerns, the tree committee began amending

the draft. In regards to the first draft, Gunn said, “An early draft of the ordinance would have required replacement of trees removed by individual lot owners as part of a re-landscaping plan.” Gunn said this requirement was removed based on objections from residents. In place of the original requirement on individual lot owners, the draft now has a mandate requiring only the replacement of large, healthy trees, removed in conjunction with redevelopment projects. And it requires the issuance of a building, demolition, or land-clearing permit. Additionally, prior to the first open house, the ordinance zone included only the heavily wooded area of Holladay, primarily the Cottonwood Lane neighborhood. Per the request

of residents unhappy with the exclusion of their neighborhood, the draft now states the benefits and protection of the ordinance will extend to the entire city. In addition to assisting in drafting the tree ordinance, the committee is also committed to educating the public, especially residents new to the area. “Consulting with a certified International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) arborist is the best place to start,” said Jones. Jones further explained the many benefits an ISA arborist could provide, such as tree health care plans, succession planting recommendations, as well as education on the benefits mature trees provide. “A certified arborist is the most qualified person to consult with about your trees before

making any permanent decisions that will not only affect you, but our community at large,” Jones said. Some residents are resistant to any notion of an ordinance, voicing their preference of an education-only approach. Those in favor of the ordinance feel education alone will not reverse the current trend. “The ordinance does not affect home owners’ normal landscaping; (however), without an ordinance, there will be continued loss of trees. This is a beautiful area that needs to be taken care of,” said Kim Kimball, tree committee member.

tudents are humming tunes about integers, giggling about phosphorus puns and reacting to a live Tesla Coil thanks to Sadie Bowman and Ricky Coates of Matheatre, which brings music and humor to the serious task of helping high school and college students understand and memorize math and science concepts. “We consider our job to be reinforcing and supporting the work that math and science teachers are doing, and to inspire conversations and explorations,” said Bowman. The company’s productions, “Calculus: The Musical,” “Tesla Ex Machina” and “Curie Me Away!” provide a context to appreciate calculus, electrical engineering, chemistry and physics and are accessible to both those who love math and science and those who don’t, said Bowman. “Curie Me Away” is Matheatre’s newest show. It is a musical that tells the story of Marie Curie, the first woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, who overcomes obstacles to become an inspiring pioneer in the field of chemistry. Bowman and Coates both have degrees in theater, but Coates started out as an astrophysicist. “He grew up intending to be a scientist but fell in love with theater,” said Bowman. For “Curie Me Away,” the two also consulted with Coates’s sister, Dr. Becky Coates, who recently received a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Utah. “We had some fun conceptual brainstorming sessions with her and did a lot of reading and research on our own,” said Bowman. The show includes core chemistry concepts such as compounds, reactions, groupings on the periodic table, transmutation and radioactivity. “It is a specific story told in a theatrically engaging way that can be appreciated with no requisite background but woven with very intentional metaphor that will ring bells for those who know the science or are learning the science,” said Bowman. Some lyrics are best appreciated by those familiar with the chemical elements like in a love song when Marie claims her heart is “red as rubidium,” “soft as barium” and “glows like phosphorus with a capital P.” Chemistry students catch the jokes when they know, for example, that phosphorus is a luminescent element which glows and its chemical symbol is a capital letter P. (Advanced students might even catch the additional gag if they are familiar with Hennig Brand’s methods of discovery of the element.) Even without a background in chemistry, audiences may appreciate how Curie takes on housework like a science project (experiment and document) and defines her relationships chemically (her two daughters are two hydrogen atoms bonded to her oxygen). Bowman’s linguistic humor and variety of musical styles bring more than just science to the story of Madame Curie. The one-hour show also incorporates social and political history as well as women’s studies. “We wanted to dig deeper and bring more of her story to a broader audience. I found the idea of education as an act of resistance to be incredibly compelling,” said Bowman, who created a Hamilton-eque rap song for the oppressed and frustrated Curie, who was being denied educational opportunities. “Tesla Ex Machina” aims to entertain audiences with science, history and ethics in a one-man show. Coates, as Nikola Tesla, recreates some of his most renowned experiments, including the induction motor, the world’s first robot and a live Tesla Coil. “Our role is to inspire and provide new connections, contexts and portals to engagement, more than necessarily to, say, teach calculus,” Bowman said. Matheatre’s first production, “Calculus: The Musical!” was written in 2006 as a learning tool for Calculus students. “Watching the show will give you an overview of what calculus is, but it won’t teach you how to do calculus,” said Bowman. “But chewing on the lyrics will directly help you learn calculus. The jokes and references do require a baseline context of mathematical exposure, so it’s best consumed by someone who is at least interested in calculus.” The music sweeps through a range of genres--from Daft Punk and Eminem to Gilbert & Sullivan to Lady Gaga—expressing the concepts of limits, integration and differentiation. Matheatre is based in Utah but performs all around the country during

the school year. Last year they performed at 40 different venues between September and May. “It gives me such hope and joy to see young people lose their minds with excitement about math,” said Bowman. “I think it’s a really cathartic experience for those students who aren’t really encouraged by the culture of high school to stand proud in their love of math.” Bowman sees this as her contribution to the STEM field. “I am employing the things I am good at (writing, music, comedy) to not just entertain but inspire, enable and empower other people (especially young people) to explore and deepen their own passions for math and science, and I find that immensely rewarding.” The company has plans to create more shows. It is currently considering the history of climate science and also an astronomy-themed show. The idea for the company started with math teacher Marc Gutman, who wrote parodies of familiar songs as mnemonic devices for his calculus students. When he realized how well the songs helped them retain and comprehend information, he wrote a song for every concept in his Calculus I class. Bowman worked with him to develop the songs into a theater production. Gutman’s original calculus-themed parodies, as well as other albums about conic sections, exponents and logarithms, are available at www. matheatre.com. “This music exists for the purpose of being teaching and learning tools, so I encourage math educators and students to check it all out,” said Bowman. High schools, colleges and universities and theaters can book a performance of any of the three shows by contacting bookings@matheatre.com. Further information is available at www.matheatre.com. l

n the night of July 11, a National Guard helicopter circled Herriman for about 15 minutes, much to the annoyance of city residents. Soon messages appeared in neighborhood Facebook groups: “What’s up with the hovering helicopter?” More concerning than these initial complaints were the replies that followed, some offering such sage advice as, “Next time, take your laser pen out and shine it at them. They stop circling when you do that.” “No. Don’t do that,” said Chief Warrant Officer Robert Williams in an interview. He was one of the pilots of the helicopter in question. “That would be breaking federal law, and breaking federal law is bad.” “Lasing” an aircraft, as the practice is known, is a felony punishable by fines of up to $25,000 and up to five years federal prison time. The FBI even offers a $10,000 bounty in exchange for reporting incidents. However, most people aren’t even aware that it’s a crime, which means that many end up facing harsh punishment for something that they perceived as a harmless prank. “This is actually a serious crime,” said Dave Teggins, the general aviation manager at the Salt Lake City Department of Airports. “I think people don’t realize that as the beam travels, it widens. So, what you’re seeing right here as a little pinprick could illuminate a whole window.” This can be very dangerous for the pilot. “If it’s dark, and your eyes are dark-adjusted, and all of a sudden, your window turns green and lights up, it causes disorientation, and the afterimages left behind can make it difficult to land safely,” Teggins said. Lasing is not only illegal and dangerous, but it is also terrible at making helicopters go away. In fact, Williams and his copilot wouldn’t have circled Herriman at all had somebody not lased them when they were returning home from a training exercise. “I was hoping that it was just an inadvertent thing and that we could just forget about it and go home,” said Williams. “But then a few seconds later they did it again. And again. And

they wouldn’t quit doing it. So, we said, ‘OK, we’re going to come find this guy.’” Williams and his copilot circled the area for around 15 minutes, remaining at least a mile away, and used the helicopter’s infrared camera to identify the source of the laser. “We were able to video the guy in his house, identify the shape of the yard,” he said. “Then we went to Google street maps, and there was their address, painted on the curb.” The perpetrator turned out to be a teenager. “We specifically requested that the cops not get the FBI involved,” Williams said. “I don’t want any kids going to jail or getting felony charges on their record. When the cop showed up at the door and explained to the dad what was going on, the dad broke the kid’s laser there on the spot.” In 2009, one of Williams’ coworkers did report a lasing incident to the FBI. The perpetrator, a 30-year-old Bluffdale man, had been outside shining a laser pointer for his cats when, on a whim, he decided to turn the laser toward a passing helicopter. He hadn’t realized that the laser was bright enough to hinder the pilot, but even so, he faced up to five years in prison. Tragically, he committed suicide shortly before he could be sentenced. Since that sobering incident, no Utah National Guard pilots have reported lasing incidents to the FBI—but not for lack of occurrences. “My unit alone has had two incidents in the past three months,” said Williams. “It’s way more prevalent than people think,” said Teggins. Over the past two years, Salt Lake International had 239 reports of aircraft illuminated on approach or takeoff, roughly one every three to four days according to Teggins. And that’s just from one airport. “The problem with it is, I don’t think any of them are really nefarious; they’re usually people of the younger persuasion out trying to have fun,” said Teggins. “Parents who buy these laser pointers for their kids have no idea how much trouble they can get in. There are kids on probation that are now felons because they’ve done this. It is serious business.” l

Hughes team answering questions for residents. (Aspen Perry/City Journals)

O

n Tuesday, Sept. 12, Holladay residents attended the Knudsen Park open house to learn more about the future nature park, as well as provide feedback on what features they would like to have available. Hughes General Contractors displayed park ideas on boards throughout the room, along with colored dot stickers for residents to vote for the park features they wished to see, including the recently trending concept of “hammocking.” Though both boards featuring the hammock garden had more red dots than green (red representing dislikes, yellow representing neutral and green representing likes), the hammock garden was a fan favorite for the younger crowd in attendance. “I liked the idea of the hammocks for sure, I would love to use those,” James VanDam, 15-yearold Holladay resident said. In addition to being in favor of a hammock area, James hoped the park would have some type of water feature and a bike station. James’ brother Joseph, age 13, was also in attendance, and after some time studying the conceptual site plan, Joseph placed a Post-it recommendation to fix potholes on the bike trails. “(The potholes) are big enough to make you crash,” Joseph said. Recommendations and inquiries for bike stations were mentioned by those in attendance and on the open house Facebook event page. When asked if they would like to have meadows for exploring or a space with grass that could be utilized, Joseph said he preferred the meadow. “I like to see the different types of flowers and grasses,” Joseph said. Eric Lyman, landscape architect with Hughes General Contractors, discussed with Joseph the question park planners were having on whether the meadow space would be best left as meadow or something that could be utilized. Joseph said,

“It’s gotta stay.” Though Joseph did not think the meadow would be as fun if it were roped off, he liked the idea of having educational elements near the meadow for park patrons to learn about the ecosystem while enjoying the sights and floral smells of a meadow. In speaking with another group of attendees, Lyman discussed how Hughes was considering adding an educational and interactive element to the water feature, by way of having it mimic an irrigation system. “Irrigation is a big part of why the valley is green. We’re thinking of taking an old head gate... and hand pumps, and doing something fun,” Lyman said. Another feature being considered is a small amphitheater with the potential to be used for education groups. “Nothing big, might be a classroom size of about 20–25 people,” Lyman said. The park may have certain trail elements that might not meet accessibility standards, but accessibility is currently being reviewed. As mentioned in the August issue of the Holladay City Journal, Knudsen Park will be on eight acres of land directly south of the corner of Holladay Boulevard and 6200 South. Holladay City was awarded $2.7 million from the Salt Lake County ZAP Recreation Bond to develop the site into a public recreation amenity. Both the city and Hughes General Contractors plan for the park to maintain existing natural amenities, while highlighting the unique history of Knudsen Flour Mill, in a space with recreation for all ages to enjoy. Construction on Knudsen Park is scheduled to begin this fall. Pictures, schedule and contact information regarding Knudsen Park can be found at Knudsenpark.com, as well as the City of Holladay’s website. l

Solar eclipse used as a chance to appreciate science By Ruth Hendricks | Ruth.H@mycityjournals.com

M

any residents used the Aug. 21 solar eclipse to increase or enhance their knowledge of science. Salt Lake County libraries throughout the valley hosted eclipse-viewing parties from 10 a.m. until past noon. The eclipse reached maximum coverage at 11:33 a.m. While Salt Lake county residents were not in the zone to see the total eclipse, the viewpoint here was 92 percent at fullest coverage. “People were lined up at the doors of many branches before the libraries even opened,” said Kelsy Thompson, public relations coordinator for the library. She reported that Sandy alone had about 700 people attend. “I’d say between all 18 of our branches, we easily had a few thousand patrons attend and partake in the festivities.” The library branches gave out 3,000 pairs of viewing glasses on eclipse day alone, and had been distributing them, as available, before the event as well. “For those patrons who couldn’t acquire glasses, many of the branches also created pinhole viewers and cardboard viewers with solar film for patrons to watch the eclipse. We also had a full schedule of branch events leading up to Aug. 21,” said Thompson. These events included talks about the solar system at the Taylorsville branch, related storytime readings at various branches, crafts at the Whitmore branch, rocket launchings at Bingham Creek and a Lunar Tunes/Looney Tunes cartoon marathon at Bingham Creek. Joakima Carr came to the West Jordan library viewing party with her son, 7-year-old Daisun, and daughter, 5-year-old Daiyana. Her baby, Dailuna, also came along to the party. Joakima laughed that several of her children had space-related names, one with “sun” and one with “luna.” Damon, the father, is a mechanical engineer and likes to promote science learning with the kids. “I want to be an astronaut. I want to go to Jupiter,” said Daisun. He explained how Jupiter was the largest planet, and he talked about the storms on Mars. Joakima had helped the kids build cardboard eclipse viewers. She had watched a video on YouTube to learn how to build them. Daisun was already learning about the phases of the moon in school. The family also recently watched the movie “The Martian” and had discussed living on Mars. The kids had used blocks at home to make stackable buildings and a satellite, inspired by the movie. Joakima said the family has also gone to visit a space museum and that the kids enjoy anything with a space theme. Retiree John Perry also came to the viewing party. Perry has been interested in space since

the TV show “Star Trek” debuted. Perry came to the library grounds because there were no obstructions, and he could set up his telescope with a filter and camera attachment. He programmed the camera to take a photo every 40 seconds to document the movement of the moon across the sun. “It’s amazing to see the sun and moon both together at the same time,” he said. Attendees at the party expressed appreciation that Perry let them look through his telescope. Perry enjoys taking photos of celestial events. He took 268 images when Mercury crossed the sun. Mercury and Venus are closer to the sun than our planet, so when they cross in between the Earth and the sun it’s called a transit. Mercury’s last transit was May 9, 2016. Information from the county library website shows that the 2017 Great American Eclipse united most of the country in viewing it. CNN recently projected that about half the country (150 million people) watched some portion of the eclipse. This compares to 20 million people who watched the 2017 NBA Championship, and 111 million people who watched the Super Bowl this past February. l

Coach Bob Kawa was an extremely influential person in Olympus wrestling, and will be one of the four first inductees into the Olympus Wrestling Hall of Fame. (Devin Ashcroft/Holladay)

W

hen head coach Devin Ashcroft initially thought of the idea to instill an Olympus Wrestling Hall of Fame, it was more out of curiosity than anything. “Every spring we have a banquet after the season. We have this little stats booklet that dates all the way back to 1954, and I use it because I can give guys tangible goals to reach. I was going through the booklet this year, and I was struck by the history of our wrestling program,” Ashcroft said. They had an extensive history of state placers and state champions in the late 50s, early 60s and the early 2000s. Ashcroft really wanted to create something to honor the storied history of this program. “I thought, how can we take this history and make our wrestlers more aware of it?” Ashcroft said. “So, I met with some parents to discuss the fundraising and logistics of an event, maybe a night where we honor our alumni? We discussed what sort of event would bring them back, and then we thought of it a HOF (Hall of Fame) banquet,” Ashcroft said. From that moment on, Ashcroft started organizing everything like logistics, contacting alumni and helping form a committee that would decide the inductees. “I have a form where the alumni can sign up to join the HOF committee. We want people who were genuine influences on the program and the wrestlers, and I think we have

a lot to choose from,” Ashcroft said. This inaugural year of inductees has already set the bar high. The first is Gil Meier, who started the program, had 22 state champions and won five state titles in an eight-year period. Bob Kawa was an extremely influential coach during his time at Olympus, and is known to take all the alumni out to a dinner every year. Robert Brough won 19 straight district championships for the Jr. high program that feeds directly into the high school program, and Brandon McBride, the only wrestler inductee, was the only four-time state champion ever in school history. For the current wrestlers on the team, the goal of this event is to allow them to watch and learn from the best of the best. “I want our current wrestlers to feel the history. They can learn so much from these men who made this program into what it is. The team will be attending the event, but as helpers to set up, and then they will be waiters for the banquet, so they can have a lot of direct contact with these legends,” Ashcroft said. While many high school programs might have a storied history, the current teams are rarely allowed to appreciate it. For the Olympus wrestling program, that disconnect will cease to exist with the creation of this annual Hall of Fame banquet, and hopefully the current wrestlers can learn a thing or two from the men who built the program they compete for. l

Cottonwood High theatre students make literature come alive this season By Julie Slama | julie@mycityjournals.com

E

erie sounds come from under the stage; a crank turns and chains rattle near the stairway; dark passageways hide the moans of creatures. The unexpected may appear when patrons explore the Haunted Hallway at Cottonwood High School. Cottonwood theatre students kick off their busy season with a Haunted Hallway that takes patrons behind the scenes of the stage. The Haunted Hallway, which can dial back the level of scariness for young children, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, Oct. 30 near the school’s auditorium, 5715 S. 1300 East. Patrons are asked to bring non-perishable food as their entrance fee, said Theatre Director Adam Wilkins. “Every year, we give the food to the Utah Food Bank, but this year, the food will go to Cottonwood’s food bank so it will directly help students and people in our community,” he said. In years past, more than 1 ton of food has been donated to the food bank through a fun, entertaining way to bring “as much needed food into the hands who can use it,” Wilkins said. After giving patrons a delightful thrill, the fall season will begin with “Beauty and the Beast,” which will run Thursday, Nov. 30 through Saturday, Dec. 2 and again on Monday, Dec. 4. Tickets are $9 in advance online or $10 general admission at the door. Wilkins said that he has the right students with “a certain temperament and mix of vocal, acting and dance talent and technical expertise” to produce this show. “We have the talent where we could have five Belles and five Beasts. To cast a show is the best and worst thing I do. It always makes a kid’s day and disappoints another,” he said. In this show—which will feature the talents of about 170 students on stage, in the orchestra pit and in stage crew—Sophia Mor-

rill will appear as Belle and Carter Wagstaff as Gaston. “I love this Disney animated film and it tells of how brave Belle is and how we all need a role model like her. She is smart, spunky, brave, loving, caring, empathic, intelligent — it’s an important role models for girls as well as for our boys to appreciate,” he said. Other highlights during the year will include the production of “Animal Farm,” which can be seen at the school Tuesday, March 6 through Saturday, March 10. General admission tickets will be $8. “We’re going to tear down the walls, bring in a trough and some dirt and make great literature come to light. It’s going to be a hard show to do, but there’s intrigue, pleasure and joy out of performing hard material,” he said. Wilkins also said that the concepts will be challenging as the students learn about the Communist revolution and need to be able to act like animals yet still relate to other students and the audience. The final show, “Peter and the Starcatchers,” will be performed Wednesday, May 2 through Saturday, May 5 and again on Monday, May 7. General admission tickets will be $8. “We are performing a year of great literature and making it feel connected for our audience. With ‘Peter and the Starcatchers,’ we are interpreting it to create for the audience a different take of ‘Peter Pan.’ With ‘Animal Farm,’ we hope the audience will find a deeper meaning. We can ask, ‘Who is the villain?’ in ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ask our students and patrons to find a deeper meaning and not judge a book by the cover. It is a great to be able to make these stories come to life,” Wilkins said.

M AYO R ’S M E S S AG E

I just completed my fourth budget cycle. Should I be afforded the opportunity to serve a second term, I will begin working with our Council on the FY 2018 budget in the coming months. The common denominator continues to be shrinking funding for roads and critical infrastructure. Growing inquiries and complaints from our residents, corroborate the need for action. Municipalities that rely on property tax as a primary source of revenue are disproportionately impacted. Holladay would be included in this group. State statute limits the amount of property tax that can be collected to the prior year’s total, unless there is new commercial/residential growth. Even if existing assessed values increase, property tax mil rates drop to keep revenue collection level. Unless we pursue a tax increase through the Truth In Taxation process, our property tax revenue will remain essentially flat. Holladay has not raised property tax

rates since we incorporated in 1999, while the inflationary costs of delivering services have risen for 18 years. As these revenue and expense lines continue to converge, transportation funding has been squeezed to the point that little can be accomplished, beyond filling potholes and essential repairs. Preventative maintenance has become more concept than reality. It’s clear to me that it is time to explore tangible solutions. I will be working with our staff and Council in the coming months to define the scope of the problem and the associated projected expenses. We will consider the immediate costs of bringing infrastructure assets, such as our roads, to a reasonable service level, as well as addressing year-over-year costs to sustain them to a reasonable standard. It is my intention to implement a long-term solution to responsibly manage and maintain our critical infrastructure assets. We will endeavor to gain your support as we work through this process. –Rob Dahle, Mayor

REMINDERS from the District DO NOT RECYCLE PLASTIC BAGS

We are still seeing lots of plastic bags in the curbside recycle carts. We ask all residents to keep plastic bags and all thin film plastic materials out of the blue recycle carts. These bags create a lot of problems at the recycling processing facility. Most grocery stores, and other retail outlets, have collection bins for plastic bags. Using these receptacles ensures that plastic bags can be properly recycled and kept out of our landfills.

CART PLACEMENTS

Please remember to keep your garbage/recycle/green carts at least three feet away from each other and from other objects, such as cars, trees, or mailboxes. This space is needed for the automated collection arms on our trucks to safely grab and empty the carts.

BICYCLE LANES

We ask all residents to be aware of bicycle lanes in front of their residences, and to make sure that they do not place their cans in these lanes, which cause obstacles and hazards for bicyclists.

HOWL-O-WEEN Pet Safety Tips Salt Lake County Animal Services Halloween can be a lot of fun for humans but pets may not appreciate the costumes and candy. Protect your pets from Halloween dangers with these tips! 1. Keep candy out of reach: All forms of chocolate and the artificial sweetener can be poisonous to dogs & cats. Call your emergency vet if your pet has eaten either. 2. Keep pets confined and away from the door: Dogs may be likely to dart out the door, or become anxious with trick-or-treaters in costumes and yelling for candy. Put them in a crate or a backroom and keep everyone safe. 3. Close the blinds or drapes, disconnect doorbells: If your dog reacts every time someone walks by or rings the doorbell close the drapes and disconnect the doorbell. 4. Keep outdoor pets inside before and after Halloween: Keep dogs and cats indoors to prevent them from being injured, stolen, or poisoned as part of a Halloween prank.

5. Don’t approach dogs while in costume: Even if you know the dog, a strange costume or mask can frighten them. They may not recognize you in costume. If a dog escapes a house or yard and runs up to you, tell your child to stand like a tree, and wait for the owner to grab the dog. 6. Test out pet costumes before: Make sure the costume isn’t causing them distress, or giving them an allergic reaction. It shouldn’t restrict their movement, ability to breath, bark or meow. 7. Leave them at home: It may be best with all the distractions to leave your pet at home while trick-or-treating. Take them for a walk earlier in the day before the ghosts and goblins come out for the night to spook them. Looking to add another furry family member? During October, Salt Lake County Animal Services will be offering 50% off pet adoption fees for any black pet. Find out more about us at AdoptUtahPets.com or visit 511 W 3900 S, Salt Lake City.

ME SSAGE O

ne year ago, I publicly shared the story of one of my sons having suicidal thoughts, and our efforts to get him help. Late one night last summer, my son came to me and told me “I want to die.” No mother wants to hear those words from her child. My heart ached as I tried to figure out what to do. He was in a dire situation and I was racking my brain on where to turn. As an elected official on the Salt Lake County Council, I couldn’t believe I didn’t know who to call. September was Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and over the past year I’ve learned a lot about this problem, as well as some of the ongoing efforts to fix it. I learned that suicide is the number one killer of teens in Utah. I learned (firsthand) the panic and fear that far too many parents feel when they desperately search for resources. And I learned we need a better way to connect these parents and individuals with crisis intervention resources to avert a tragedy. I’ve been fortunate to be able to serve on the state crisis line commission and work with Lt Governor Cox, state legislators, and mental health professionals to improve resources to those in crisis. We have been meeting for the past several months surveying the level of resources throughout Utah available to individuals and families experiencing a mental health crisis. The commission has finished the first phase, and will

Holladay City Journal

Suicide Crisis Line discussions bring continued solutions By Aimee Winder Newton | ANewton@slco.org

present the findings to the state legislature. There are more than 20 different crisis lines throughout the state, with varying hours of access and level of resource. Because of this, we are recommending a public messaging campaign promoting the national crisis phone number: 1-800-273-TALK. We want to ensure this number funnels to the local resources based on where someone is calling from. We are hopeful that federal legislation by Senator Hatch and Congressman Stewart will create a nationwide three-digit crisis line in the future. Areas of the state where local crisis lines aren’t operational 24/7, we’ll seek additional funding to bring them up to speed. We want to make sure that every caller in the midst of crisis is connected with a live person on the other end—not a recording. We also want to ensure that the people responding to calls are well-trained and sufficiently prepared to potentially save lives. Currently, Salt Lake County is serviced by a highly-skilled and dedicated team of professionals at the University of Utah Neuropsychiatric Institute, better known as “UNI.” The people who take calls at UNI are consummate professionals. Not only can they help someone who is struggling with suicidal thoughts, they can also be a resource to anyone who is struggling but not quite at crisis level yet. I had the opportunity to tour the UNI facility and I was impressed by

their operation. My hope is that this Aimee Winder Newton County Council District 3 level of quality resource can become available to anyone in crisis, anywhere in Utah. Parents and kids can also access the SAFEUT app, which will connect them to UNI. Please download this app, if you haven’t already. Lastly, we want to expand the reach of Mobile Crisis Outreach Teams, or MCOT. Think of it like an ambulance just for mental health emergencies. If someone has a mental health crisis, these teams can be dispatched to a home, school, or wherever needed. Their experts can work with the person experiencing the crisis and help them find a resolution that doesn’t involve self-harm. We’ve already seen these teams in action in Salt Lake County saving lives, and I’m hopeful we will see this resource in other counties throughout the state. There is still a lot of work to do, and we’re just in the first phases. But I’ve never been more optimistic about Utah’s ability to solve our suicide crisis. For every teenager whose thoughts turn to suicide, and every mother whose heart breaks for her child—I’m committed to seeing this through. I know what it’s like to feel that panic and fear. We’re making progress. I’m excited for the continued cooperation between community leaders and experts, and various levels of government, to bring to bear sufficient resources to do so. Our children’s lives depend on it. l

Granite School District Bond to improve facilities on November ballot By Aspen Perry | a.perry@mycityjournals.com

Granite School District household financial breakdown from gsdfuture.org videos. (gsdfuture.org)

G

ranite School District (GSD) proposed the GSD Bond, up for vote November 7, in response to the rising concerns that GSD education facilities will not be able to keep pace with 21st century learning, in addition to safety concerns of outdated educational facilities. “We have a billion dollars in capital needs in Granite School District, and that’s not Granite school officials telling us that, it is independent facility engineers who assessed our buildings 18 months ago,” said Ben Horsley, director of communications and community for GSD during a presentation to Holladay City Council on Sept 14. Two years ago, the district board began strategizing ways to improve education facilities, and presented their initial findings to GSD communities in February and March of this year. After receiving community feedback, GSD conducted a survey to discover the cost model citizens would be most in support of. As stated in the “Where We Are Now” video on gsdfuture.org, survey results showed the most support for a hybrid model of capital fees. The hybrid model, viewed to have the least amount of financial impact on taxpayers, includes an initial 10-year $238 million bond with a 40-year plan to rebuild and remodel every school in the district. Once the 10-year bond is paid in full the tax revenue would be maintained by placing it back into the capital revenue. In regards to opposition stating how GSD does not show responsibility for how they “spend others money,” as seen on a recent KSL announcement on public bond meetings, GSD representatives state they will have to account for funds used. “The fund requires a truth in taxation, and we anticipate the funding for the next 30 years would be able to provide rebuilds and renovations for the remainder of the schools,” Horsley said. According to information provided by parentsforgranite.org, the financial breakdown per household of the $238M bond will average $15 monthly or $184 annually, on a $250,000 home. That’s money proponents of the bond feel is a small price to pay for student safety and learning. “A better facility is extremely important to how we help out students,” said Trent Hendricks, principal of Valley Junior High School.

In addition to newer facilities being able to keep pace with 21st-century learning, newer facilities are also believed to improve school culture. “The state of your building directly impacts culture… a new building can make an impact in the areas of morale and collaboration,” Hendricks said. Given current district facility needs, GSD representatives explained regardless if the bond passes or not improvement costs will be passed on to taxpayers. They further stressed that the bond simply offers a responsible cost plan. The “Why Bond Now” video on gsdfuture.org explains that due to current low interest rates and rise in construction costs, waiting could result in paying 10 percent more with each passing year until a plan is established. “If we wait three years to put this together that $184 (annual per family cost), becomes over $240… and these aren’t wants, these are needs, so it’s not like the list is going to change suddenly because we wait a few years,” said Don Adams, assistant superintendent with GSD. Those needs include making facilities safer in the event of a natural disaster. Not only is this vital to students’ safety, but also for the purpose of educational facilities serving as centers for the community to seek assistance after a natural disaster. “In the event of an emergency, 30 of our schools would be unusable,” Horsley said. As public community meetings began in September, Horsley stated the biggest complaint addressed to GSD was citizens asking why the district had not done this sooner. Though the district did attempt for more funding during their 2009 bond initiative, due to the political climate at that time, the district bond was only able to pull from capital funding and not request a tax increase. Horsley stressed the importance of the public seeing the value of education as an investment not just to kids but also to our community. “If we don’t invest back into our kids, there is no economic future. Investing in the education of our kids is an investment to our way of life.” To participate in public community meetings in October, visit gsdfuture.org or send comments to gsdfuture@graniteschools.org.l

Checkered flags fly for young driver By Greg James | gregj@mycityjournals.com

Natalie Waters is amongst the youngest drivers on the oval at Rocky Mountain Raceway. (Creative Resource & Design)

T

o race a car fast, a driver’s license is not necessary, apparently. Chaz Groat is making a name for himself on the threeeighths mile oval at Rocky Mountain Raceway. At 13 years old it is not legal for him to be behind the wheel of a car on the streets, but at the track he is beating more experienced and older drivers. “We are a racing family. I have been around racing for a

long time. He ran a go kart out at the Larry H. Miller track for two years starting when he was four years old. Soon after that RMR (Rocky Mountain Raceway) started the quarter midget program for kids, he progressed up through that program,” said Chaz’s father Chuck Groat. In the quarter midget program at RMR the cars are generally half the size of a normal midget race car and run in classes with engine restriction rules. Drivers range in age from 5-16 years old. Last summer Chaz moved into a junior stinger class on the larger oval. This class is for drivers age 12-16. He said he always wanted to drive a midget car. After some discussion with officials the age was lowered to match what other Intermountain race tracks were offering and Chaz found a car. “I joke with my wife that I feel like I am completely helpless. I just sit back and try to watch him do what he does,” Chuck said. In 2016, he was invited to Meridian Raceway in Boise, Idaho to race for the first time in his midget car. He also ran his car in Pocatello, Idaho. His first main event victory came at Meridian. This season will be his first complete season in the racing class and he has made the most of his opportunity. Midget cars run a Ford Focus alcohol-injected engine. At this altitude it generally has about 155 horsepower and weighs about 1,100 lbs. The engine is sealed and cannot be tampered with. The competitive edge comes from suspension set up and setting up the fuel.

Chuck owns two complete cars. He has raced alongside his son. Chaz’s racing career is funded by his parents. He also is sponsored by Powder Works Powder Coating and Roto Grip Bowling Balls. “He kicked my butt. It was thrilling to watch. I figured this was his first year and he should just get some seat time. He has taken to it. I think it took me three years to get my first win,” Chuck said. Chaz captured his first main event victory Aug. 5. He was fast qualifier and started the main near the back of the pack. He patiently made his move towards the front. At one point he was nose-to-tail with his father, passing him with about five laps remaining in the event. Natalie Waters has followed Chaz’s same path in the series. Waters is also 13 years old and lives in West Jordan. “From a dad perspective I think these kids are doing something amazing. People should come watch what they are doing in these race cars,” Chuck said. They plan on going to the Bullring in Las Vegas at the end of October. “I really just look for the best opportunity. I watch the cars around me and try to figure out the best way to get around the track. It was an amazing feeling to win the main. We have an amazing car. My dad is my favorite race car driver it has to be,” Chaz said. Chaz is in eighth grade and attends Kennedy Junior High in West Valley. He is the son of Chuck and Julie Groat. “The thrill of it is amazing. Going 100 miles-per-hour down the track at RMR, it is exciting,” Chaz said. l

Grappler and coach head to world finals

T

By Greg James | gregj@mycityjournals.com

he story of U.S. grappling team member Koffi Adzitso begins at a young age when his family left Africa and settled in Utah as refugees. His new life would take him on a journey to the World Grappling Championships in Azerbaijan. “Only 20 people made the team, lots tried out and two of us come from Utah. We get to represent the USA and travel out of the country as team members,” Adzitso said. The World Grappling Championships are scheduled for Oct. 1821 in Baku, Azerbaijan. Adzitso trains with Taylorsville resident and former grappling World Champion Brandon Ruiz. He began hand-to-hand combat training after graduating from Cottonwood High School in 2007. While training he met Ruiz and began learning from him. “I heard about wrestling my senior year and went out for the team. After high school I was doing MMA (mixed martial arts) and that is when I met Brandon. Every time I compete Brandon is in my corner. I have learned everything from him. This time I made the team with him,” Adzitso said. He joined the Colts wrestling team his senior year and placed second in his weight class at the Utah High School Activities Association state wrestling meet. He encourages kids to wrestle as early as they can. “Wrestling teaches a lot of discipline and how to respect people. I learned to honor people and be responsible,” Adzitso said. Adzitso and his family came to Utah when he was 11 years old. He moved from Togo, Africa. His parents got jobs at the airport to support his family. “My parents really struggled to give us a good life here. They

gave up a lot of stuff to come here and we settled in and became citizens. We came here with only the stuff we could fit in our suitcase,” Adzitso said. Because he is different he got into a lot of fights in school. “I dressed different, did not speak English and looked different than everyone else. Back in Africa we fought a lot. When I was bullied I would defend myself. Then I started wrestling and instead of fighting after school I was on a team. I felt this was it, and I knew it would keep me away from trouble,” Adzitso said. Grappling differs from wrestling—it is wrestling to submission. This means a competitor is expected to submit either verbally or by tapping his opponent to admit defeat. Refusing to “tap out” can risk unconsciousness or serious injury. His supporters have started a go fund me account to help him raise funds for travel while attending the championships. It can be found at https://www.gofundme.com/send-koffi-to-world-championship. Adzitso estimates his trip to the world championships will cost about $5,000. He works for Intermountain Health Care in the purchasing warehouse. He trains by riding his bicycle to work and working out with Ruiz his coach. He rides 34 miles a day and spends approximately 12 hours a week perfecting his skill. He qualified for the team in April at the U.S. Grappling World Team Trials in Las Vegas. He finished fourth in the 84 kg class. Adzitso is nicknamed “The Lion King” in Ultimate Fighting circles and began fighting in 2007. His UFC record includes 20 wins and 11 losses. He had nine knockouts. His last UFC fight was in 2014 when he began training for submission grappling full time. l

ormer American bobsled athlete Jeremy Holm has put a lot of effort into educating student athletes in Utah. His organization, A Day of Champions, hosts events that are meant to educate student athletes and their parents and coaches on the art of competition. “It’s pretty much a TED talk for student athletes,” Holm said. “We want to take our previous experiences and successes and teach the current generation of athletes how we achieved our goals,” Holm said. The event involves a couple speakers that are helping Holm preach this champion attitude. Gretchen Jensen is a former Miss USA and ESPN commentator who lives in the Salt Lake Valley. Dr. Nicole Detling is a sports psychologist who has worked with the NBA, NFL, MLB and Olympic teams. Alan Tran is a high-performance chef who has worked with Olympic teams and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. The list also includes a Paralympic snowboarder and cancer survivor Nicol Roundy and three other Olympian athletes. “Each of them will discuss their area of expertise and how it relates to being a champion. Tran will talk about how to eat well, especially as an athlete on a budget. Detling will talk about how to think like a champion, and the champion psyche. Roundy will talk about overcoming adversity, as she has overcome one of the hardest challenges life can throw at you,”

Holm said. However, due to recent hurricanes plaguing the coasts, the event will have a humanitarian aspect as well. “At first we wanted to donate the ticket proceeds to local high schools to help pay for sports teams and equipment. But with Hurricane Harvey and now Irma, it seems that those people need all the help they can get right now,” Holm said. The event will donate 50 percent of initial ticket sales, and then after the event expenses are covered, they will donate the rest. “We haven’t decided on the organization yet, maybe the Red Cross or the LDS Humanitarian Center. We just want to give back and make a difference,” Holm said. “People like these informative talk events. We can use our influence as world-class athletes to serve the Utah community and others. We decided that we need to get these funds to those who really need it. Everyone can be a champion,” Holm said. The event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. at Cottonwood High School. If you would like to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey or Irma, you can donate to local organizations like the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, the United Way of Greater Houston or to national organizations like the All Hands Volunteers or Americares. l

Olympus girls tennis look to continue domination under new coach By Jesse Sindelar | jesse.s@mycityjournals.com

Olympus girls tennis hopes to win its third consecutive state title in October. (Pixabay)

W

hile some might worry about a successful team coming under new management, the Olympus girls tennis team should have nothing to worry about as they look to win their third state title in a row this upcoming fall season. Jenny Watts, the newly appointed head coach, has a hefty challenge ahead of her, but the shoes she is trying to fill aren’t completely foreign to her. “The previous coach, Kevin Watts, is my father-in-law. He really encouraged me to keep the legacy alive, and I jumped at the opportunity,” Jenny Watts said. With her daughter on the team, and with her experience of playing tennis for 35 years, Watts has a true commitment to the team. However, as much as she tries to continue her father-inlaw’s legacy, certain changes had to be made for her first season. “Kevin ran a no-cut team. After he retired, my hiring was contingent on being willing to cut, which we did for the first year here,” Watts said. And as inclusive as the no-cut policy was, the team had about 90 members before the cuts came, reducing the team size to 32, seven more than the recommended team size of 25. A reduced team size won’t change how dominant the team looks currently. “We are looking really good. Our no. 1 singles player, Emma Jewell, is nationally ranked, and our top three doubles and singles are looking really

sharp,” Watts said. Watt’s relationship with the previous coach and having her daughter on the team are not the only familial connections on the team. “There are so many family ties on the team. Emma Jewell’s sister is an incoming freshman, and the no. 1 doubles and no. 2 and no. 3 singles player are all cousins,” Watts said. For Watts, the pressure to three-peat in nonexistent. “It’s actually a pretty easy job because they all work so hard. I’m just organizing matches, while they are the ones leading themselves. I want these girls to become great friends in a great environment. I just feel really fortunate to be taking over such a well-run team from Kevin.” While the pressure isn’t there, it doesn’t mean they aren’t favorites, either. “We only lost one senior from last year, and we have only lost one match to Lone Peak in preseason. I feel pretty good about how we are looking right now,” Watts said. As Watts tries to create the ideal environment for the team, the team is having no problem creating one for themselves. Whether the connection is by blood or by dedication, this team has a good environment, a good coach and good talent, and you should expect to see them on the podium come October. l

FBI agent explains motivations of cybercriminals By Ruth Hendricks | Ruth.H@mycityjournals.com

130 Years

OF TRUST Taking Care of YOUR FAMILY’S NEEDS

EVERY STEP FBI Special Agent James Lamadrid discusses cybercrime at a luncheon for the South Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce. (Ruth Hendricks/City Journals)

T

he South Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce hosted a luncheon for other chambers in the area at the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District in the Conservation Garden Park. James Lamadrid was the featured speaker. Lamadrid is a cybersecurity supervisory special agent with the FBI. During the eight years he has been there, he investigated criminal and national security computer intrusions. He manages the Salt Lake City cyber task force, which consists of FBI task force officers, computer scientists, intelligence analysts and administrative staff. The FBI has three priorities in the cyber area. First is to protect the US against terrorist attacks. After 9/11, the focus shifted from criminal investigations to counter terrorism. The second priority is counter-intelligence against espionage, such as those stealing US secrets or weapons systems designs. The third priority is where Lamadrid’s team comes in: cyberattacks by criminals, overseas adversaries, and terrorists. The mission of the FBI cyber division is to identify, pursue and defeat cyber adversaries targeting global US interests through cooperation and partnerships with national security and law enforcement organizations. Lamadrid said that the FBI has limited resources and can’t do it alone. They partner with the Utah Department of Public Safety to investigate cybercrimes. “It’s not like on the TV show ‘Criminal Minds’ where the computer analyst can pull up information instantly and you solve the crime in 30 minutes. It takes weeks, months, even years to complete these investigations because you have to follow the process of the law.” Lamadrid discussed the motivations of cyber criminals. The first is “hactivism,” which is when a hacker wants to push for political or social change, or doesn’t agree with your ideology. A local example of this happened in 2012, when a Utah state senator was trying to get a law passed that a person caught with graffiti paraphernalia could get cited by police for graffiti. A hacker, who didn’t like that law, targeted her and the Salt Lake chief of police’s website and shut them down. “The hacker, who lived in Indiana, was eventually caught and arrested,” said Lamadrid. “In emails he had called himself ‘the gingerbread man’ because he thought he couldn’t be caught. An FBI agent on the squad who caught him was later called ‘the gingerbread man catcher.’”

The second motivation is crime: hacking done for financial gain. This is the bulk of what the FBI sees. The third motivation is insider threat, when someone inside the organization hacks for personal gain or for ideological reasons. “If you have a business with computer staff, remember that they have the keys to your kingdom,” continued Lamadrid. “They could take the information and sell it on WikiLeaks. You should be aware of unusual activity by anyone in your organization, such as someone coming in early, staying late, or accessing folders they don’t need to. It should raise a red flag that you investigate.” The forth motivation for cyberattack is espionage, which is the stealing of state secrets or proprietary information. Nation-state actors that are frequently involved in this are North Korea and Russia. A fifth motivation is terrorism. People have tried to take down the US electrical grid. The first bona fide network terrorist attack was when Russia shut down Ukraine’s network, which caused lights out around Christmas in 2015. Finally, warfare is a motivation that can involve cyber network attacks. Common targets of hacking are the healthcare sector, the financial sector and government databases. “Four million dollars is the average total cost of a data breach in large companies,” said Lamadrid. Point of sale breaches are huge now. Criminals can put another device over a company’s point of sale device where you swipe your credit card to capture that information. Another growing problem is ransomware or data-napping. Your data is held hostage until you pay a ransom. The problem is that the criminal encrypts your data. The files are still on your computer, but you can’t open them. If you pay the ransom, the criminal may or may not send you a key to unlock those files. Bitcoin, a digital currency that is hard to trace, is usually asked for. The main way to avoid paying a ransom is to back up your files regularly. The FBI recommends that you don’t pay the ransom since it offers an incentive for other criminals to get involved in this type of illegal activity. In May 2000, the Internet Crime Complaint Center, or IC3, was established by the FBI as a place to receive complaints. Go to www.Ic3.gov to report an Internet crime. l

CAVIER TAILGATING ON A CHEAPSKATE BUDGET It’s here at last, football season is back, and you know what that means, tailgating. Time to paint your face like a primal maniac, put on some music, grill some meat and have a grilling throw down in the stadium parking lot. Now, it would be nice to tailgate like a king. Grill up some Ribeye’s and lobster tails, but we’re not going to do that because this is the nutty coupon lady talking. Instead we’re going to tailgate…. on a budget. I decided to make the ultimate sacrifice and do some extensive and exhaustive field studies. Yes, these are the kinds of sacrifices we make at Coupons4Utah.com for our amazing readers. Here are few suggestions to help you keep from breaking the bank. Play #1 – LEAVE THE GROCERIES AT HOME AND EAT FOR FREE Through November 25, when you purchase $25 in participating groceries at Smith’s Food and Drug stores using your rewards card, you’ll receive a FREE ticket for admission to their University of Utah tailgating party. The free tailgate admission will print automatically on your receipt at checkout. Note that only receipts may be used to gain admittance, you are not able to purchase a ticket to the tailgate at the event, and the tailgate tickets do not include game tickets. Visit Coupons4Utah.com/smiths-tailgate or head to your local Smith’s store for full details and a schedule. Play #2 – USE THE CASHBACK REBATE APP., IBOTTA This app. is my secret strategy for getting cashback on hot dogs, mustard, cheese, chips, soda and even beer (bonus, no beer purchase required). In fact, as I write this, there’s even a rebate for submitting for

a rebate! Crazy right!? Simply claim your rebate through the app. After making your purchase, just send them a picture of your recipe though the app. No messy mailing is required. On average, Ibotta users get back anywhere from $10 to $40 per month. Join our Ibotta team and get extra perks by entering code coupons4utah at www.coupons4utah. com/ibotta-rebates. Play #3 – THE MORE THE MERRIER Think of it as one big potluck. Invite more people to the party, and request that everyone pitch in with a dish. It’s a football game, so make it a team sport and put each team member in charge of something different. Play #4 – THE SNEAKY SWAPS Use a cheaper cut of meat and cook it slow and low. Okay, I get it about the BBQ. But how about forgoing the grilling and taking your menu to barbequed pulled pork instead. Cooking the cheaper cut in a slow cooker or Instant Pot (coupons4utah.com/ instant-pot) not only saves you money, it stretches further and makes game day a snap. And, remember amidst all that tailgating comfort food, to sneak in garden-fresh sides that are under a buck per serving. Pay #5 – IT’S ALL ABOUT THE COLOR: Instead of worrying about expensive official team gear, visit your nearest dollar store to purchase plates and napkins in your team’s colors. Deck yourself out in solid colors without the logo. Take a quick look online for make your own game ideas that you can create in team theme, like Cornhole. There’s some easy to follow direction via DIY Network www.diynetwork.com/how-to/outdoors/structures/ how-to-build-a-regulation-cornhole-set

Ultimately, tailgating is not about the food… well, okay, it’s about the food. But, it’s also about the people, the friendship and the experience. It’s those things that make the food taste so good. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Serving: 8-10 – Under $20 total Ingredients: • 6-7 lbs Pork Shoulder Chuck Roast • 1/4 cup brown sugar • 1 tablespoon chile powder • 1 tablespoon paprika • 2 teaspoons garlic powder • 2 teaspoons kosher salt • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper • 1 large onion • 1 bottle BBQ Sauce • sturdy hamburger buns Marinade: • 1 cup chicken broth • 1 cup your favorite BBQ Sauce • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce • 3 large garlic cloves, pressed • 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1-Stir together the brown sugar, chile powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and cayenne in a small bowl. Rub the mixture all over the pork shoulder. Wrap the pork in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Place meat in slow cooker on top of slice onion. 2-Combine Marinade in a bowl and pour the marinade over the pork. 3-Cover and set on low for 8 hours. Remove the meat to a large bowl and shred with forks mix in desired amount of BBQ sauce. Serve on buns. It’s delicious topped with coleslaw. l

Speak of the Devil

A

s a child growing up in a strict Mormon household in the ‘70s, I spent most of my day trying not to unintentionally invite Satan into our home. It was a struggle because according to my mom there were hundreds of things we could do that would summon the Prince of Darkness to our doorstep. I pictured him sitting on his throne in the lowest level of glory (Mormons don’t call it “hell”), receiving an elegant hand-written note that read, “You are cordially invited to live at the Stewart home because Peri’s sister listens to Metallica pretty much every day. Plus, Peri frequently forgets to say her prayers, she blackmailed her brother and she uses face cards to play Blackjack, betting Froot Loops and M&Ms.” I spent most of my childhood deathly afraid. Sunday school teachers would recount true stories of children who snuck into R-rated movies only to wake up in the middle of the night to find either Jesus sadly shaking his head or Satan leering and shaking his pitchfork. I didn’t watch an R-rated movie until I was 46. In the 1970s, Ouija boards were all the rage. My mom warned us, in no un-

certain terms, that playing with a Ouija board was guaranteed to beckon all sorts of demons. It didn’t help that I didn’t know Ouija was pronounced “WeeJee.” I thought I was playing Owja. Once, my sister stayed home from church pretending to be sick and heard (cloven?) footsteps in the room above her. She swore off Ouija boards and Black Sabbath for a month or two before returning to her demonic ways. My dad was no help. He frequently added to my levels of hellish anxiety, especially when I yelled for him in the middle of the night, certain I’d heard a demon growling under my bed. He’d stumble into my room, look under the bed and say, “You’ll be fine as long as you stay in bed. If you have to get up, I hope you can run fast. You should probably keep your feet under the covers.” Dad would go back to bed, leaving me absolutely terrified. So I’d wake up my sister so we could be terrified together. On top of the constant fear of running into Satan, we had to avoid accidentally summoning Bloody Mary by saying her name three times or luring any number of evil spirits to our living

When I turned 13, I was pretty sure I’d encouraged a poltergeist to take up residence in our home. There was suddenly lots of slamming doors, dishes flying through the air, vulgar language spewed during dinner and an overall evil atmosphere. Turns out it wasn’t a poltergeist, just me being 13.

have a tail and horns, but looked like an ordinary human. Occasionally, the Fuller Brush salesman would come to the door and I’d eye him with deep suspicion. Was it really a door-to-door salesman, or was it Satan trying to infiltrate our weak defenses. At one point, I wished he would just show up so I could stop worrying about it. I imagined he’d knock on the door and, resigned, I’d let him in and tell him to find a place to sleep. “But you can’t live under the bed,” I’d say. “It’s taken.” l
