Relay team breaks decades-long record at BYU Invitational

Last weekend in Provo, the Trojans attended the 114th BYU Invitational, “the longest-running and most prestigious track and field invitational in the Intermountain West.” Senior Brogan Garrett brought home a second-place finish in the 400m race and the 4x400 relay with members, Brogan Garrett, Tucker Giles, Maverick Guymon and Kenny Whitmer earning third place. Garret broke his own school record in the 400m (48.05) and competed in the 100m (11.14) and 200m (21.80) races as well. The 4x400 team broke a 24-year-old school record with their time in the relay (3:22.07)

Morgan had several other athletes who qualified for the meet and set PRs. In the past, the meet included two divisions: one for smaller schools and another for larger schools. This year all athletes competed against each other making for some very tough competition. There were no pre-set qualifying marks for each event. The top entries by seed mark in each event qualified, and there were preset numbers allowed in each event.

Over 132 schools and 3,278 athletes from around the Intermountain West competed in the two-day event. The Utah 6A-1A State Track Meets will be held at BYU, and the invitational is a great opportunity for athletes to

compete on the track and in the field venues to prepare for competition at state.

In the individual 400m race, Garrett placed second (48.05) to Maple Mountain’s Banks Jackson (47.39). Garrett’s time broke his own school record of 48.40 that was set a few weeks ago at the Davis Invitational.

In the 4x400 relay, Brogan Garrett, Tucker Giles, Maverick Guymon, and Kenny Whittmer raced to a third-place finish in 3:22.07. The first-place team, Corner Canyon, broke the 2017 state record that was held by Syracuse High (3:16.19) by almost a second (3:15.24). Timpview placed second (3:19.32).

The Trojans’ Abby Titus placed 9th in the high jump, just out of the medals. She cleared 5’1” at the meet.

In the boys’ high jump, Kenny Whitmer cleared 6’1” to place 14th while eight boys hurdlers qualified for the BYU Invitation on time, a huge accomplishment. Seven of the eight PRed at BYU. Tucker Giles was Morgan’s top finisher in the hurdles at 14th in the 300m (39.69). Giles also took 14th in the 800m (1:55.47).

Three girls reached state qualifying marks at BYU. Sara Wilkinson in the 100 m hurdles, and Brier Gailey

and Kendall Peterson in the 200m.

Assistant Coach Michelle Wilkinson noted, “I’m so proud of all of the kids, and the PRs they hit. It’s great to see them improve!” Morgan will host the Region 13 Track Championships Thursday and Friday, May 9-10. The top four finishers along with any athletes who have qualified on time or mark will advance to the 3A State Track Meet at BYU May 17-18.l

Man or bear question sweeps internet

A viral thought experiment has been making waves this week. A question was posed to women both in person and online: would you rather be alone in the woods with a man you don’t know? Or a bear? The answers overwhelmingly leaned toward the bear, sparking much online debate. Those who said they would prefer the bear said it was worse not knowing what a strange man could or would do, whereas they knew the bear would either leave them alone or attack them. Critics of the thought practice point to both data that contradicts the sentiment, as well as the problematic inferences caused by the hyperbolic comparison.

Longest baguette in the world

The baguette, the long, crusty bread loaf has long seemed synonymous with French cuisine, but for years, the world record for the longest loaf was held not by France, but by Italy. This week, the French reclaimed the title with a lengthy 461-foot baguette. 18 bakers brought the loaf to life in the town of Suresnes, just outside of Paris. CNN reported that after the record was confirmed by Guinness Book of World Records officials, parts of the baguette were sliced, spread with Nutella, and served, while the rest was donated to a local charity to be distributed to the homeless in the area.

Miss USA steps down

In a move that rocked the community surrounding the title, Noelia Voigt, former Miss Utah, and holder of the Miss USA title announced on social media that she would be stepping down and resigning her title. Voight cited “physical and mental well-being” in her post, and said that though the decision was difficult, she felt it was the beginning of a new chapter in her life. It is anticipated that one of the other runners-up to the pageant title will step in to fill the role. Voight was the first Venezuelan-American to hold the title of Miss USA and spent her seven months holding the title advocating for diversity and inclusion and lobbying against bullying in all its forms.

Massive Disneyland expansion approved

The House of Mouse just got the green light from the city of Anaheim for its biggest expansion in decades. The Anaheim City Council unanimously approved the motion to rezone the 550 acres in question to allow Disney to build and expand on its first and original theme park in Southern California. Named “DisneylandForward” by Disney executives, the new expansion will be built utilizing currently owned Disney property and promises new attractions, lands, and storytelling opportunities. While nothing is set in stone, speculations predict guests will see new experiences based on the “Avatar” franchise, “Zootopia”, “Wakanda” from Marvel, and other popular intellectual property.

The origins of ‘May the Fourth’

S ince the original release of “Star Wars” in 1977, fans have been watching and enjoying the sci-fi adventure beloved by so many. Since then, the “Star Wars” franchise has grown significantly to include prequels, sequels, stand-alone films, TV series, and even video games that tie into the story. As many already know, May 4, a major “Star Wars” holiday, took place last week. While the holiday was not created or declared by Lucasfilm, May 4 marks the day when “Star Wars” fans around the world choose to celebrate the franchise and unite under one fandom.

The date in particular originates from the pun “May the Fourth be with you”, a variant of the popular “Star Wars” universe farewell “May the Force be with you” used by many characters throughout the story. The catchphrase was first uttered by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.” According to gadgets., the first use of the May the Fourth pun was on May 4th, 1979,

when Margaret Thatcher became UK Prime Minister. An article in The London Evening News bore a congratulatory advert by her party, which read: "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations."

The series of films began as the brainchild of director George Lucas, but it is still going strong under the direction of the multinational company Disney. Granted, Disney had a rough start continuing the saga, but they have more than made up for it with the production of their hit TV shows: “The Mandalorian,” “The Book of Boba Fett,” “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” “Andor,” “Ahsoka,” and their upcoming addition “The Acolyte” which is scheduled to release on June 4. In addition to live-action masterpieces, “Star Wars” is home to multiple animated series; namely “Rebels,” “The Clone Wars,” “The Bad Batch,” “Tales of the Jedi,” and “Tales of Empire,” the latter of which was available for fans beginning on May 4. Although children may be the target audience of the animated counterparts, these shows contain “Star Wars” lore and backstory that is frequently found in other material. “The Clone Wars” in particular is very

nostalgic for many older fans and is still popular today.

In fact, the “Star Wars” theme is so popular that it is a common sight in stores everywhere. Merchandise ranges from high-quality lightsaber replicas to children’s products such as Lego building kits. The protocol droid C-3PO once said, “The possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.”

While these odds aren’t the greatest, if you haven’t seen any of the “Star Wars” movies, there’s a high chance you’ve probably heard of them. To put it simply, “Star Wars” has become an important part of not just American culture, but the culture around the world.

To celebrate the holiday, the Morgan County Library planned a week of “Star Wars” fun for its patrons. From April 29 to May 4, citizens of Morgan may have found themselves face-toface with Darth Vader, the “Sith Lord” himself. Throughout the week, a cardboard cutout of Vader lurked somewhere in Morgan. If a patron managed to find him, they could bring back photo evidence and receive a prize as a reward.

In addition, there are ample decorations currently on display: a cardboard cutout of Grogu, hand-drawn “Star Wars” characters by Betty Rothschild, a Lego Star Wars display by Matthew Bourne, and last but not least, a planetary model hanging from the ceiling in the young adult section.

On May 4, the library held a “Star Wars” party. The party began at 1:00 p.m. and was intended for ages 5-18. Activities included DIY lightsabers, a balloon arch photo op with props, and “Star Wars”-themed games and crafts such as designing your own droid, button making, and pinning the Jedi braid on Anakin. Librarians entertained visitors by playing all three original “Star Wars” movies throughout the day and a playlist of “Star Wars” music during the festivities. In addition, the young Jedi in training were pleasantly surprised by a special appearance by Kylo Ren on the front lawn. Participants had the opportunity to duel the iconic character with their pool noodle lightsabers in an attempt to save the galaxy from the clutches of the tyrannical First Order. l

Morgan City Council enacts new ordinance to safeguard culinary water supply

To help protect the city's culinary water system from contamination, Morgan City Council has passed a new ordinance that regulates cross-connections. A cross connection is any physical arrangement of fixtures or piping that could allow nonpotable water, industrial fluids, or other waste to come into contact with drinking water. These "arrangements" include any temporary connections such as swing connections, four-way plug valves and removable connections.

Under the ordinance, new consumer customers will be required to install a Morgan City-approved backflow preventer on the service line leading to their home. Residents may contact the city's water department to find out which backflow preventers are approved. New residential construction will also need to have vacuum breakers on every hose bib connected to the city's culinary water system.

The city’s wastewater operator/ certified backflow preventer technician (Kale Watkins) will do hazard assessments of businesses to determine what steps will be necessary with their connections, the ordinance says.

“If I go to do an assessment I can look and if they’re a high health risk it's got to be the best one [backflow preventer] they have,” Watkins said.

Annual inspections of the devices are required and must be paid for by the water user. Failure to comply with the ordinance will result in a discontinuation of services and a fine or the charge of and a Class B misdemeanor (up to a $2,000 fine and up to six months in jail).

In all instances of cross-contamination, the water user will be required to pay for the cleanup.

On March 26 the city council adopted the city’s cross-connection control policy. State law also requires municipalities to have a cross-connection control ordinance in place, City Attorney Gary Crane told the city council. Watkins recently noticed the city did not have an ordinance and brought it to the city council’s attention.

“Before I started doing those assessments that's when I started looking and thinking, ‘Where's my authority statement or my policy to give to people and they say, ‘What gives you1:31:49the right to come in and check my facility?’” he said.

“This came a lot when the secondary water system came online because we were worried at that point big time about cross connections, people wanting to hook up, so I'm surprised we never did anything with it,” Councilmember Tony London said.

The new ordinance also institutes a new backflow prevention program which will systematically examine risk through random surveys in the water bills to ensure compliance with “existing applicable minimum health and safety standards.”

“There's people that do it they don't even know they're doing it,” said Watkins who shared the story of a Farmington resident who accidentally caused his whole neighborhood to become sick from dirty water after he installed a sprinkler system incorrectly. “He felt horrible.”

There are some older homes in Morgan City that do not have backflow preventers on their lines, City Manager Ty Bailey said. “As we replace meters, we’ve replaced [more than] 200 and I think we upgrade as we go but this at least handles new connections.” l

Five best pizza spots around the Beehive State

UTAH – When it comes to pizza, Utah probably isn’t the first, or even second state that comes to mind for the best pie. Regardless, there are plenty of good options to scratch that pizza itch, which made narrowing the list down to just five difficult. Taking into account value, taste, environment, and other factors, here are the top five pizza places in Utah!


For great-tasting, filling pizza that won’t break the bank, you can’t go wrong with Two Jacks. A cut above the chain stores, Two Jacks is the perfect party pizza. Looking to feed a large group pizza that’s better than the national chain on the corner without dropping a fortune? Two Jacks has you covered.


A classic for students of the University of Utah and beyond, the Pi Pizzeria in Salt Lake has been serving up quality slices for decades. Whether you fold your pizza like an authentic New Yorker or flat on the plate, the Pi offers a great New York-style-adjacent pizza that consistently delivers.


In an environment that feels almost like an outdoor store-meets-restaurant, our number three pick offers great food for a great price. There’s a little something for everyone at Slackwater, and with the ability to order any pizza as a calzone, you’re bound to leave with a full stomach, and a wallet that’s not too far behind.


Number two on our list could easily have been number one. The Rusted Sun in Salt Lake features handmade artisan pizza that is bursting with flavor. The unique menu brings amazing flavor combinations that will keep you coming back again and again. Despite a small dining room, this meal is definitely worth the wait.


Finally, number one is Antica Forma down in Moab. So many visitors go to Moab for the outdoor recreation, and rightly so, but, nestled right in downtown is perhaps the best pizza place in the state. Antica Forma’s housemade mozzarella, their desert pizza, and their woodfire oven give this restaurant its first-place rating. l


Submitted by the Mountain Green Fire Protection District

From April 25 -

“Something happened today that touched my old jaded firefighter heart. We observed this year’s last fire drill at Mountain Green Elementary as we frequently do, Day Crew and I, and while we walked outside to see if the kids were orderly, we noticed every class group outside was holding a poster or big signs or individual letters that said

WE LOVE YOU, or THANKS FOR KEEPING US SAFE, etc, and all the kids signed each class's poster/sign. It really got me. Never experienced that before. We got lots of hugs and high 5s, and pictures taken with the kids and posters. What an extraordinary experience. THANK YOU MOUNTAIN GREEN ELEMENTARY for making your firefighters feel very appreciated!!”


From May 5 -

“Happy International Firefighters Day!

We are super grateful for our members with Morgan County! We have some of the most dedicated, hardworking, willing, and fun-loving

people! Here’s to another year of great memories, great calls, and great partnerships! There’s nothing better than working with such a diverse group of individuals to accomplish a high level of service to the people who live, work, and play in Morgan County!”

Fire Chief honors new AEMTs in Morgan County at County Commission Meeting

On Tuesday, May 7, Fire Chief Boyd Carrigan honored Deputy Chief of EMS Operations Erica White for the successful completion of the first-ever Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) class at Fire House 121. “Your dedication and hard work in not only teaching but also navigating through the various challenges and logistics of organizing this class are truly commendable,” said Carrigan. “We deeply appreciate the countless hours you and your team have invested to make this a reality. Your commitment to advancing the skills and knowledge of emergency medical responders in our community is invaluable and sets a high standard for excellence in prehospital care.”

In addition to honoring White, the chief recognized her students, providing an opportunity for the community to acknowledge and celebrate these new AEMT’s hard work and dedication to the emergency medical services in Morgan County. AEMTs, who have already completed over 100 hours of training to become EMTs, dedicated an additional 164 hours to enhance their EMS abilities. After completing the training, students had to pass an in-house test and a practical skills test before being recommended to take the national AEMT test. White also thanked their families for their sacrifice as these men and women dedicate their lives to keep the community safe and healthy. l

Morgan softball hosts playoff, wins 4-3 over Richfield

It’s been quite the season for Morgan’s softball team! The Lady Trojans enjoyed the top spot in the 3A State Softball RPI rankings earlier in the season, they earned the right to host a playoff pod for the first time with a No. 4 seed, and they won their pod game 4-3 over Richfield to advance to the State Championships in Spanish Fork May 9-11.

Head Coach Billy Peterson shared, “This is my ninth year of coaching, and this is the best seed we’ve ever had. I think it’s probably the best seed in school history since being included in 3A.”

“We have a really good team, regardless of the fact that we don’t have any seniors this season,” he continued. “These girls are all great athletes and very committed. This is the first team I’ve coached in which we have a full lineup of players who have competitive softball experience, so they definitely understand what it takes to compete and to win.”

In their playoff game against Richfield, Morgan rallied from down 3-1 to win the game 4-3. Richfield opened up with two runs in the top of the first inning before Morgan came back to narrow the lead to 2-1. Another run for the Wildcats in the top of the second gave them the 3-1 lead. After a scoreless third inning, Morgan added two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to tie up the game.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Trojans earned the go-ahead run and held off the Wildcats to win and advance.

In the game Eva Birkeland was the winning pitcher, striking out seven batters in five innings. Birkeland also led the hitting going 2 for 3 with a home run and three RBIs. Summer Bangerter and Callie Averett both added doubles.

Coach Peterson praised his players’ ability to stay calm and fight back when they are behind. “Like any team, we’ve gone through some struggles,

The girls golf team and boys volleyball teams are competing in their respective state tournaments this week. Golf teed off at Meadow Brook Golf Course in Taylorsville Wednesday and Thursday, May 8-9. The team enters the tournament as the reigning state champions, having won their first title last year. Morgan won the Region 13 crown but is facing a tough Richfield team who are shooting to unseat the Trojans. Juan Diego is also looking strong-headed into the tournament. Morgan’s Jane Poll, Individual Region 13 Medalist, will lead the team as they play at state to defend

and they’ve had to learn to fight and get themselves back up in the saddle after getting thrown. Faith has played a crucial role in their success, and they are in a great position going into this weekend’s state tournament. I’m proud to be coaching these girls and have tremendous faith in all of them!”

At the Spanish Fork Softball Complex, the true double elimination tournament continues Thursday with Morgan facing the Carbon Dinos at 10 am. A win in this game moves them to Friday play, and a loss would pit them against Manti at 2:30 pm Thursday. A win over Manti would also advance them to Friday play.

In their two previous meetings this season, the Trojans split with the Dinos 1-1. In the first match-up April 13 at the Payson Icebreaker Tournament, Morgan prevailed. Four days later, the Trojans traveled to Price for an April 17 match-up and fell 10-5 to Carbon.

Since their loss to Carbon last month, the team has racked up a number of wins against tough opponents to prepare them for postseason play. With a 16-8 season record, Morgan has found the winning combination of players and determination to win.

Coach Peterson praised the support his team has received this season from many sources. “I would also like to thank all the parents who have dedicated their time and financial resources to help their girls play this game and to the other coaches who have volunteered so much of their time to make this season possible.”

“Coaching is oftentimes a thankless job, but seeing the girls develop and become friends and compete as a team and learn how to overcome adversity makes it all worthwhile for me. These are the important lessons that shape the rest of their lives. I hope these girls will always remember the value of working hard for a common goal! l

their title.

The volleyball team earned a No. 6 seed for state after the final RPI rankings came out. Morgan dropped their final two games to Grantsville (3-1) and Ogden (3-1); teams they had previously defeated. The Trojans will have all of their players back for the state tournament as they open on Friday, May 10 against the No. 11 seed Judge Memorial. The first-ever boys’ volleyball state tournament will wrap up Saturday, May 11 when the first, official boys’ volleyball state champions will be crowned. l

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (in theaters)

You wouldn’t imagine a sci-fi movie about intelligent monkeys to have a lot of real-world relevance.

“Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” is surprisingly ready to change your mind about that. The latest entry in the long-running movie series, “Kingdom” keeps its action but also leans hard into some potentially interesting sociological commentary. The question of whether anyone can learn peace once they have power is a powerful one, and the fact that it isn’t answered leaves me interested in where the series is going next.

The movie is set several generations after the events of the most recent “Planet of the Apes” movie

(released in 2017.) The movie starts as many fantasy and historical epics do, on a small, peaceful village that’s about to be decimated by invaders. These invaders, however, are hunting for a human, one that a young ape ends up allying with in his quest to reclaim his people. When it turns out the human is keeping all kinds of secrets, however, he’ll have to decide who he can really trust.

The movie takes for granted that you’ve seen and remember all the previous modern-era “Planet of the Apes” movies, so if you want the full experience you might want to refresh yourself. If you haven’t seen them, the ideas and world-building here are good enough you might want to catch up anyway.

Grade: Three stars Dead Boy Detectives (Netflix)

It’s the most fun you can have


with dead people.

“Dead Boy Detectives” is a delightful new streaming series, combining the verve of “Scooby-Doo” with the supernatural fun of dark fantasy world-building. With delightful characters all being played by great cast members, it’s hard not to fall in love with the entire crime-solving crew. Their adventures mix darkness and humor, adding in a heaping dose of twists and turns to keep things exciting.

The show focuses on two ghosts, the Dead Boy Detectives of the title, who stayed on earth to solve crimes instead of moving on to the afterlife. After trying to help a physic who’s lost her memories, they get sucked into a case that leaves them tangling with witches, dandelion sprites, and a huge snake. None of that, though, is as frightening as their greatest enemy –the bureaucracy of the afterlife.

Ready and resilient: navigating healthcare emergencies

Ahealth crisis is defined as a negative change in mental or physical health or healthcare services. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), chronic illnesses are medical conditions that require consistent medical attention, last over a year, and diminish quality of life. A health crisis can result from many factors, including a sudden illness, accident, natural disaster, or unforeseen medical condition.

People who suffer from chronic illnesses are more likely to experience a health crisis, which is especially concerning since chronic illnesses and diseases are on the rise in the United States. Six out of 10 adults experience chronic diseases such as cancer, stroke, and diabetes, according to the CDC. Healthcare crises are unique to each person and can cause intense emotional reactions in addition to physical challenges. Because they are rarely predictable, it is important to be prepared for a health crisis to help make a difficult situation more manageable.

Below are five strategies that can help you prepare for a healthcare emergency:

1. Be Aware. Be knowledgeable about your family’s medical history and the conditions for which you are most at risk. Work with your healthcare providers and track your health, use preventative care, attend regular check-ups, and recognize any abnormal, long-term (two or more weeks) changes in your health, no matter how minor they may seem.

2. Budget Emergency Funds. Hospital bills can add up quickly, so setting aside a little each month for an emergency healthcare fund can help offset financial strain. It can also be helpful to talk with a financial adviser about long-term and short-term healthcare

Though it’s set in the same universe as “The Sandman,” another Netflix series, you don’t have to have seen that one to appreciate this one. The show explains everything you need to know, unfolding the story in a way that sometimes feels like a whirlwind but never leaves you in the dark.

Jayden Revri and George Rexstrew both charm as the titular detectives, while Kassius Nelson walks a careful balance to keep her extremely complicated character feeling real. Yuyu Kitamura is a delight, as is Ruth Connell in a completely different way. As the witch causing most of the trouble, Jenn Lyon brings just the right amount of everything.

Altogether, it’s the perfect show for people who like their mysteries dark, funny, and definitely on the weird side.

Grade: Three and a half stars

options to help you prepare for an unexpected medical crisis.

3. Create an Emergency Plan. Create a simple plan regarding what you will do in case of a medical emergency. This could include who will take care of your children and pets, who needs to be contacted, the role or responsibility of each family member, etc.

4. Keep Medical Documents. Carry your insurance cards with you, and become familiar with your insurance plans and what they cover. Make sure you have documents that include your blood type, medications, medical history, and other relevant information. Store documents together in a safe and easily accessible place so you can refer to them quickly in the event of an emergency.

5. Prepare a Will and Advanced Directives. A will is a legal document that explains the distribution of your possessions upon your death. It is important to prepare a will before a healthcare crisis occurs to give you peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out.

Advanced directives are documents stating your wishes regarding medical treatment if you become unable to give consent due to a lack of lucidity or consciousness. Living wills are a subset of advanced directives and state your wishes regarding end-of-life medical treatment if you become terminally ill and cannot give consent.

Because you cannot know when a health crisis will occur, the best strategy is to start preparing now. Being proactive allows you to implement thorough and thoughtful preparation that can help mitigate the impact of a healthcare emergency. l

The following is a brief summary of of the annual report filed with the Morgan County Commissioners for the year 1934 by County Agent C. R. Richards. Four seed-treating demonstrations were conducted with grain and potatoes. Fifteen farmers were assisted in roguing fields for seed production. 130 blood samples were taken and tested at the state laboratory for Bang’s disease. Assisted with complete testing of dairy cattle for T.B., 1887 cattle tester. County was again placed on accredited list. Helped vaccinate 65 dairy calves for blackleg and assisted 14 beef cattle men with blackleg control.


County Agent C.R. Richards announces that he has been requested by the State and Federal Drouth Service to establish in the county an information service on feeds for sale and lists of individuals desiring to buy feed. The County Agent’s office is preparing to give this service to those who want to make use of it. Frank Rich is working out of the county agent’s office on this feed service. He is now engaged in making a survey of livestock and feed production as well as the feed available at the present time. The cooperation of all farmers will be appreciated.

MHS alumni competes at college level for SkillsUSA

Recently two students at Morgan High School made it to Nationals for SkillsUSA. However, this competition is not just for high school students. MHS alumni, Tyson Turner, who currently attends Davis Tech for graphic design, participated on the college level of SkillsUSA.

SkillsUSA is an academic competition where students compete in different trade-based competitions. Turner was approached by his adviser to compete in the Advertisement Design category.

Turner showed his skills in both mechanical and creative design during the regional competition.

For the mechanical portion, students were tasked with replicating a flier to the best of their ability, to match it as closely to the original as they could.

During the creative portion, students were assigned a fictional event and given the freedom to design a flyer for it according to their own vision.

Turner's blend of creativity and skill secured him the second-place win among nearly 20 competitors which allowed him to move on to state which was held March 29 at Salt Lake Community College.

Once again Turner was tasked with a mechanical and creative skill.

For the creative portion, students had to make a flier for the Run with the Giants Marathon. They were given an hour and forty-five minutes to make a custom logo and a flier to go with it. “The creative portion for state

was a lot easier than regional because we were given a lot more free rein,” said Turner. “We were allowed access to the internet, and to our past work that we could pull inspiration from, as opposed to the limited amount of images we were relegated to for regional.”

After carefully replicating the mechanical flier and showing his creativity in the creative skill, Turner won third place in the state.

Turner said this competition taught him time management and gave him self-confidence. “I amazed I could create something in a short amount of time,” he

Honor mom with self-care and love

M other's Day is almost here. It’s a time to celebrate and appreciate the incredible women who have shaped our lives with their love, strength, and wisdom. While showering moms with gifts and gestures of affection is customary, this Mother’s Day let’s also prioritize something equally important – self-care for moms. Explore the significance of self-care for mothers and offer some practical tips to help them prioritize their well-being this special weekend and beyond.

The selfless role of motherhood: Reflect on the selfless devotion and sacrifices mothers make for their families, the tendency for moms to prioritize the needs of others over their own well-being. Recognize that self-care is not selfish but essential for maternal health and happiness. Plan a day for Mom at the spa or give her the day to relax and spend the day doing something she loves, whether it’s reading a book, taking a hike, or brunch with family.

stated. “It shows me how much I progressed over the last year while in my program.” Turners plans to complete the Graphic Design program at DTC in hopes of finding a job in the graphic design/social media marketing/multimedia production field. l

The importance of mom-care: The impact of stress and burnout on maternal mental and physical health. Prioritizing self-care benefits not only moms but also their families. Set a positive example for children by demonstrating the importance of self-care and boundary-setting.


A self-care tip for your mother is to schedule “me time.” Encourage mom to carve out time in her busy schedule for activities she enjoys, whether it’s reading, exercising, or indulging in a hobby. Practice mindfulness and encourage mom to practice mindfulness techniques such as meditation or deep breathing to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

VI. Discussion Items

Connect with others: Let mom seek out time with friends, family, or support groups to share experiences and alleviate feelings of isolation. Life gets busy and it would be a nice treat to spend time with others. Delegate and set boundaries for her and remind her that it’s OK to ask for help and delegate tasks to lighten her load. Setting boundaries with work, family, and social commitments is crucial for main -

taining balance.

Thoughtful gestures for Mother’s Day: Motivate loved ones to show appreciation for mom by taking on household chores or preparing a special meal. Offer heartfelt gestures such as handwritten notes, flowers, or personalized gifts that show thought and appreciation. Plan a relaxing day: Suggest activities that promote relaxation and rejuvenation, such as a spa day, nature walk, or leisurely brunch.

Embrace motherhood with grace: Remind mom that it’s OK to embrace imperfection and prioritize self-care, even amidst the chaos of daily life. Let mom practice self-compassion and celebrate her accomplishments, big and small. Offer reassurance that selfcare is not a luxury but a necessity for maternal well-being and resilience.

This Mother’s Day we honor the remarkable women in our lives by encouraging them to prioritize self-care. Whether it’s taking a moment for themselves, seeking support from loved ones, or indulging in simple pleasures, every act of self-care is a testament to their strength and resilience. As we celebrate Mother’s Day, let’s remember to show appreciation for moms not just on this special day, but every day, by supporting their journey toward health, happiness, and fulfillment. l

Shaylee Joyner

Shaylee Joyner grew up in Walla Walla, Washington. After graduating from Walla Walla High School she attended Weber State University where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. She went on to earn a Master’s in Math Education from Western Governors.

Joyner began her teaching career eight years ago in Cache County where she taught sixth grade for two years. She then taught sixth grade for one year in Weber School District before accepting a job at Mountain Green Middle School as a sixth-grade teacher when it opened five years ago.

“I became a teacher because I loved going to school when I was a kid,” said Joyner. “I had great teachers who made it a fun place to be and I wanted to be able to do the same for my students. I love to build relationships with my students and see them achieve a goal that they have been working hard for. Sixth graders are so much fun and I love laughing with them every day!”

Joyner lives in Weber County with

MMS seventh grade history class visit

Morgan Middle School 7th Grade teacher Jen Webster arranged for all of her Utah History Class students to visit the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP) Museum. They enjoyed a tour of the Museum, a tour of the Pioneer Cabin and had a presentation of “On the Trail”.

Three DUP Members welcomed the students and provided instruction and demonstrations of these activities. DUP membership said it was a pleasure to have the two classes with 46 students on Jan. 10 and another three classes with 90 students on April 23.

The museum offered a tour of the pioneer artifacts and told about the discovery of the Morgan Valley by Thomas Jefferson Thurston. Some of the items the students found most interesting were the dental chair and the tooth extraction

tool, coffee grinders used to make flour and cereal from the grains grown, and the horse hair coat.

The cabin built by Charles Shreeve Peterson, and home of the first pioneer child born in Morgan County, provided a glimpse of pioneer living conditions.

The “On the Trail” presentation included learning about the Martin and Willey Handcart company's food rationing. The students were given a “johnny cake” from the one-fourth cup of flour that would have been one day's food ration.

The students spent time at each station and were given a piece of Pioneer honey taffy as they left to return to the school.

“We certainly enjoyed sharing our knowledge and history with the students. Our thanks to Mrs. Webster and the other adults that accompanied these young people.” l

Hollywood Q&A

Q: Jeff Probst keeps referring to the “new era of ‘Survivor.’” What does that mean? What has changed?

A: Starting in Season 41, there have been a few ways you can tell we’re in a “new era” of “Survivor” (beyond, as you say, host Jeff Probst repeatedly telling us it’s a new era): more “advantages” (the show’s term for mini-contests within the show), no returning players and no


more season titles (the seasons are just numbered now).

The extra advantages are the thing that most people noted. Probst told Entertainment Weekly that they are, indeed, the key element of the new era, and it’s all about making things more competitive.

“That really goes back to the grand design of the new era, which was to create so much uncertainty that even if we never put an idol or a twist in the game, it would still have the impact that they were in the game, ... so you have to play as though they are, and that makes you make a move.”

Speaking of players, the fact that the show hasn’t brought a single previous contestant back to compete in the new era is also a significant shift, but Probst claims he and the team didn’t give that

one much thought. It just came about naturally with the casting process.

“The team is finding such interesting people, and those people are now being on the show and that influences people to apply.”

Q: I loved Vanessa Kirby in “Hobbs & Shaw.” What has she been doing since?

A: For those who knew her as a stage actress, or even as Princess Margaret in the first two seasons of “The Crown,” Vanessa Kirby would seem like an unlikely action star.

But in 2018, she appeared in “Mission: Impossible - Fallout,” and then in 2019, she held her own in some pretty overthe-top fight scenes in “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” and suddenly

casting directors started seeing her in a new light. She seems to have resisted that a little. She surely could have leaned into the action side of things (those two films grossed more than $1.5 billion at the box office, so she definitely got other offers), but instead she went back to quiet dramas for a while, such as the historical “Mr. Jones” (2019) and the heartbreaking indie drama “Pieces of a Woman” (2000). She also reminded us that there’s big money in quiet dramas, appearing as Josephine Bonaparte in the mega-budget “Napoleon” (2023).

Celebrity Profile

Familiar and muchhonored for her acting, Jane Lynch has established another identity by making it known that she’s game for games.

The alumna of television’s “Glee” won a Primetime Emmy for playing Sue Sylvester on that series, but she has collected two more (out of her total of five to date) by using her caustic humor to put contestants through their paces. The current example of her filling that role is NBC’s “Weakest Link,” which moves to Mondays on May 20.

Lynch starts each episode by putting eight players to the test, having them work together to answer questions and win money. As the contest progresses, players who contribute the least to the team’s success are voted out, with Lynch giving them this now-famous dismissal: “You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.”

Lynch’s ability to field such duties could be traced back to her career roots as a member of Chicago’s renowned Second City troupe, as one of only two women selected for the company at that time. She went on to do more improvisation on stage as a member of Annoyance Theater, where her roles included matriarch Carol in “The Real Live Brady Bunch.” By the time “Glee” premiered in 2009, Lynch had racked up considerable movie credits, ranging from “The Fugitive” (1993) to such Christopher Guest-directed satires as “Best in Show” (2000) and “A Mighty Wind” (2003). They typically showed off her quick wit and skill at repartee, and that, along with her “Glee” persona, made her NBC’s choice to host “Hollywood Game Night” in 2013. Involving celebrity guests in party games, that gig lasted until 2020 and earned Lynch dual Primetime Emmys — and dovetailed with the start of her “Weakest Link” work.

Dr. Marc Mitton Board Certified Dermatologist

He prioritizes staying up to date on recent research, best medical practices and surgical techniques, and enjoys applying them into his practice.

Dr. Mitton received his undergraduate degree in biology at the University of Utah and graduated with his medical degree from Rocky Vista University in Parker, CO. He completed his intern year of residency at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery in Blacksburg, VA and his dermatology residency at Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, PA.
