FARMINGTON—The Davis County Commission is considering a possible tax increase to cover operations at a new Animal Care facility that will replace the current building that is almost 40 years old and bursting at the seams. A tax increase would amount to approximately $11 a year on an average priced home.

“The last time a tax increase was approved for county government was in 2016,” said Commissioner Lorene Kamalu. “Because of wise financial management by Auditor Curtis Koch and his team’s work over the years there is enough in the capital budget to build the new building. The tax increase is only for the amount of money for operations that is absolutely needed.”

Animal services are required by state law, said Kamalu. “It’s a public health and safety service to prevent animals from being all over and spreading disease or causing accidents.”

Across the state, usually a city figures out animal services, she said. “Animal services have historically been done by Davis County. We have 15 cities. It doesn’t make sense for the cities to figure out services on their own. It’s more efficient to have the county do it.”

There has been tremendous growth in the human population – more than twice the population in 1985 (when the building was built) and the animal population is so much bigger, said Kamalu. “Nationally there has been a huge increase in the population of animals since the pandemic. A lot of people got animals.”

Animal Care stepped up their game for this animal tsunami using the amount of money for operations they’ve used for years and years, she said. “Some of the staff are in closets, they’re doubling up dogs. It’s unhealthy for the animals.” They work so hard at having the best operations without money, Kamalu said. “They’ve had to be innovative to figure it out. It’s hard to see the animals need a better space and they don’t have it – they just don’t.”

One of the great things to keep costs down is the volunteers, she said. “They’re absolutely remarkable. There’s nearly 1,000 volunteers. Animal Care is the only one to receive the gold level of volunteerism award from UServeUtah.”

Volunteers come up and get the animals outside, said Kamalu. “It helps with their mental health and makes them feel loved. Some take them on trail runs. We’re so thankful, that’s what allows us

Davis County Sheriff’s Office breaks ground on new Emergency Operations Center

FARMINGTON—There was a lot of excitement on Tuesday when dirt was turned on the future Emergency Operations Center (EOC) on the Davis County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) campus in Farmington. The 17,300 square foot facility will provide coordinated disaster response and recovery in a large-scale emergency event for all 15 cities in the county and to regional partners. It is anticipated to be completed in 2025.

“We are so happy to have this day come to fruition and be able to get started on this great construction project for our county,” said Davis County Sheriff Kelly Sparks. “We have a population that is very self-sufficient and resilient. At the DCSO our mission really is to serve that community and be actively engaged in improving the

quality of lives for everyone in Davis County.”

Sparks said Davis County is probably one of the only counties of its size in the whole state of Utah that doesn’t already have an EOC. “This is something that has been a long time coming and has been needed for a long time.”

“So we are starting construction on the new EOC here in Davis County by turning dirt with shovels, but here in Davis County, we’re also breaking ground on a new chapter for emergency management,” said Davis County Emergency Manager, Ember Herrick. “Davis County emer-

gency management is a division of the Sheriff’s Office that serves the community and seeks to improve the quality of life for our residents and businesses through prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery. We’re committed to making Davis County the most resilient county in Utah to natural disasters and human caused events.”

This new EOC will be one of the safest structures in Davis County, she said. “It’s designed to withstand earthquake shaking and liquefaction with a foundation fortified with engineered Geopiers.”

The EOC will have Starlink satellite internet phone and radio redundancy communication capabilities, said Herrick. “An emergency generator will provide backup power to keep the facility operational in a sustained power outage. It also has features that will allow central staff activated in a disaster to live in the building through recovery.”

Before a disaster strikes, the EOC will play an essential role in coordinating preparedness efforts and ensuring that emergency responders are properly trained. It’s truly a regional asset designed to benefit the entire community.”

Some facts about the EOC provided by the DCSO:

• Davis County’s new EOC will be built with grant funding from the federal Rescue Plan Act, which allocated $350 billion to help states recover from COVID and increase their capacity for disaster recovery

• Davis County has prioritized $15

million of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) to build the new EOC

• The building will have some of the following features:

• A Joint Information Center (JIC) with a chroma key wall and a media staging area for public information dissemination

• Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) coordination room

• Search and Rescue (SAR) coordination room

• Emergency management vehicle bay storage area

• The latest communications technology to foster interoperability with our 15 cities, regional partners, Utah Division of Emergency Management, FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

• The latest GIS mapping technology allowing first responders and residents to transmit damage information to the EOC dashboard instantaneously so EOC staff can assess which areas are hardest hit and dispatch assistance to streamline our response and expedite recovery

• Sleeping quarters, shower facilities, and a kitchen and dining area for EOC staff activated in a disaster through recovery

“It’s going to be a magnificent building,” said Sparks. “But the building isn’t really important. What’s really important is the work that will be done by fantastic people inside that building every day to make sure that we protect the people in Davis County.” l

‘Magic on the Sidewalk’ fills Main Street with art

BOUNTIFUL—Next week the sidewalks along Main Street will turn into works of art as the annual Bountiful Chalk Art Festival welcomes advanced and amateur artists to fill a sidewalk square with their creations. “Magic on the Sidewalk” runs from June 26-29.

“I’d seen a chalk art festival at the Gateway Mall downtown,” said Jane Joy, of the Joy Foundation, who started the Bountiful festival. Her son David, has now taken it over. “I was teaching troubled youth at Farmington Bay and there is sidewalk all around it. I thought it would be good if they could go out there and draw. I was also an art teacher with the Davis School District.”

Joy said she talked an artist with the Lamplight Gallery on Main Street into working in front of the gallery. “I said, ‘there are squares here’ and the idea grew. It’s been going for more than 20 years.”

It’s steadily grown, she said. “For many years it was earlier but it rained. The artists would build tents and even though it rained people would still come out. The thing I liked about it being earlier was the school kids. They’d have stars in their eyes.”

It’s an extremely healthy thing for Bountiful because it’s so family oriented, said Joy. “We don’t hire professionals. You just have to have a dream.”

This is E.J. Keyes’ third year as an artist at the festival. “I’ve just become more and more involved,” he said. “Every year they’ve roped me in. It’s been fun.”

Keyes is an art teacher at Viewmont High School. “I have an art club

that takes a square so they can work on stuff over there. Every year I see students participating, some I didn’t even know they did art. It gives me a chance to share, compare and interact with them.”

Several times Keyes said his wife would bring the kids over. “They got squares of their own. With the younger ones I would collaborate. We all got involved in it. It became a family affair. Neighbors and friends would come by. It’s a great environment.”

Each square of art has a number on it so that people can vote for their favorite, he said. “There are first, second and third place awards for advanced and amateur in different categories.”

The festival is mostly on Main, said Keyes. “They’re adding some more squares for free art by the splash

pad. Registered squares will be in front of the Tabernacle.”

Although registration for a square is full, Keyes said artists can still show up and see if there are any open squares from someone who couldn’t come. “Sadly some squares go untouched. Come on the opening day or two days. Volunteers can let you know where the open squares are.”

It’s “Magic on the Sidewalk,” he said. “It truly is magical. People are so kind they help each other tape up art in the rain. They share their talents and do what they do best. It’s fun for everybody. We want to have people come and just enjoy that.” l

to have quality services.”

“The current building is 11,000 square feet,” said Ashleigh Young, Director Animal Care | Davis County. “We’re full. We have 200 animals being fostered or we wouldn’t have any more space. It makes a huge difference to have them take cats and dogs.”

Right now there is one big room for all the dogs, she said. “They’re all looking at each other and barking. In the new building we’ll have more space. It will lower their stress.”

In 2021, Young said they took in 1,478 dogs. “In 2022 it was 1,815. So far this year through May it’s 556 dogs.”

Young said the shelter has a 95% live release. “We’ve had positive outcomes. We only euthanize animals that are severely injured that we can’t help or dogs with a bite history that are not safe.”

The new facility will be built on the current land. “It will be an adventure continuing operating out of the old building while that one is being built,” she said. “We hope to break ground at the end of the year.”

Young said the tax increase will help them focus on medical care. “I’d love to have exams done by a veterinarian. We’ll also be able to do surgery in house. We’re required to spay and neuter the animals and it costs about $200,000 a year. If we can perform those it will be significantly less. We can also get additional staff so the animals can get the care they need.” It’s very early in the process, Kamalu said. “We’ll have a Truth in Taxation meeting first. We believe in transparency. Residents can follow what’s going on. We want them to know that we’re being very intentional.” l

When things go wrong, be strong

Helen Keller wrote, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” And so it is with our world. In many cases we seem to be oblivious to much of the beauty around us. We get so busy, and in so much of a hurry that we often miss the beauty and color that surround us. But when the Spirit touches our hearts, we are able to see the world from a completely different point of view. The colors are brighter and the way we experience the world is clearer. And for that brief moment, we are changed.

not out-matched. We have gifts that need to be shared, and life that needs to be lived, and people to be loved, rather than simply sitting back and watching Heavenly Father’s Plan unfold. That’s part of what we signed on for. To do less, is to fall short of the covenants we made with Heavenly Father.

It’s clear that there is purpose in the pain that we experience in life. We are not victims, but victors! We’re in the midst of a journey that has eternal ramifications. We’re not here by accident. We need to celebrate this journey. Once upon a time, in a land far, far away we shouted for joy to have this opportunity.

The Gospel teaches us that when things go wrong, be strong, but that’s harder than it sounds. We’re taught to look for the light, especially when the darkness seems to be all around us, but that can seem overwhelming. And we’re taught, not that everything will be OK in the future, but that everything is already all right, and that everything will be converted into something beneficial. Sometimes that requires a major leap of faith.

The reality is that this world has been created specifically for us, to learn lessons that could be taught in no other way. And we’re taught that our responses to the challenges in this world will undoubtedly impact our future. The poet R. L. Sharpe wrote “A Bag of Tool.”

“Isn’t it strange that princes and kings, and clowns that caper in sawdust rings, and common people like you and me, are builders for eternity.

To each is given a bag of tools, a shapeless mass and a book of rules. And each must make, ere life is flown, a stumbling block or a stepping stone.”

That’s us. We’ve come to this world to make a unique contribution, and the purpose for this contribution is not necessarily to gain world acclaim, or to achieve some kind of immunity from pain and discomfort.

But rather, it is to fulfill a promise we made to God; a promise that we would do our part; that we would plant seeds that others might harvest, and that we would love God, and praise God, and love our neighbors. We can do that, no matter what we may have been practicing so far. We have been created by God, for God’s purposes. His plan is perfect, and we fit in to that perfect plan.

We all know that life can be difficult; and granted, more often than not, life is no “dance in the park.” In fact, it’s more like a wrestling match! But apparently, that too, is part of the plan. With all the bruises and aches and pains of mortality, sometimes it’s easy to believe that we’re out-matched, but we’re not. Yes, there are lessons to be learned and tears to be shed, and people to be loved. But we’re

Ours is a journey that leads to Heavenly Father. Ours is a journey that has been made possible by the Savior. In this journey, as we interact with others, it would appear that we all leave a bit of ourselves behind. As we serve others, and as we love others, we will sacrifice for others, and we will become a little less selfish, a little less self-centered….. and a little more like the Savior. And that, too, is part of the Plan.

With this in mind, maybe we need to live a little more intentionally. Maybe we need to fear less and love more. Maybe we need to do our best to be our best, because after all, we are sons and daughters of the Most High God. The Savior is our Chief Exemplar. The Holy Ghost is our guide and companion. We are not out-matched.

We worship God; not only the name of God, but with the very presence and omnipotence of God. And as we recognize that God is the source of all that is sacred, we will be able to discover the beauty and spirituality of our existence. In this manner, we will begin to understand in some small way, the supernal love that God has for us. His love will make it possible to go beyond our weaknesses and imperfections. His love will make it possible to reach eternity.

We all know that life can be difficult; and granted, a lot of times, life is no “dance in the park.” In fact, more often than not it’s more like a wrestling match! But apparently, that too is part of the plan. So, stay strong and remember who you are. Don’t give up and don’t give in.

Want Money? Work and save some

The average stock market return has been about 10% every year for nearly the last century, as measured by the S&P 500 index. In some years, the market returns more than that, and in other years it returns less. Talk to a stock broker or someone who works with Individual Retirement Accounts or do internet research before investing. You want to invest safely and wisely. You don’t want to lose your money and there is no reason to do so. Locate a couple of stock funds that have paid at least ten percent over the last 15 years and you should be okay to move forward with investing.

$300 a month for 40 years. Your amount of savings at the historical average rate of return will be $1,593,333.20. We aren’t talking about saving massive amounts of money but simply sticking with a monthly and yearly commitment to investing.

It's not easy to save money if you don’t make much money. People on minimum wage incomes can barely buy groceries and pay rent. What if you could put $100 a month into a S & P Index Fund? Let’s say you are 25 years old and struggling to scrape by but you are going to set a goal of investing $100 a month into stock. This may mean some sacrifice but anything good always requires some sacrifice. If you are 25 years old and commit to at least setting aside $100 a month into stock, then at an assumed return rate of ten percent you will have $585,422.17 when you are 65 years old. There are a lot of 65-year-old people who don’t have that much money. You can have that much if you will start now while you are young.

If you can start younger than age 25 then you’ll have even more. By the time you are 30 or 40 you can maybe start putting an extra $100 or $200 more into your fund and it will grow all the more.

Let’s say your hard work pays off and on average you end up saving

Possibly you are 50 years old and just finally able to save a little. Fifty is a late age to start. However, if most of your bills are paid and you commit to saving $500 a month in your stock fund till age 67 you can still end up with $243,268.22. There are many people who do don’t have this much money. You can, if you commit to making a smart monthly investment.

We can’t take money with us when we die. We leave it all behind, but it helps pay the bills and buy ice cream while in this world. If you do save a big bunch of money and don’t live to enjoy it then your spouse, kids, church or favorite charity will enjoy it in your honor.

The Bible says, “Wealth obtained by fraud will dwindle, but whoever earns it through labor will multiply it.” Proverbs 13:11

Want some money? Work hard and save a little every month. Eventually you’ll have plenty.

You probably haven’t forgotten about the overabundance of grasshoppers we had in Utah last year, specifically in urban and residential areas. Unfortunately, similar numbers are expected this year. Varying climate-related factors impact the numbers we will see.

Grasshoppers spend the winter as eggs in the soil, unaffected by cold air temperatures. The snowpack insulates them, keeps soils evenly moist and cool, and creates ideal conditions for egg survival. Then spring comes, and if it is warm and not too wet, it will allow for a successful egg hatch and the growth of nymphs.

growing grasshopper populations.

• Monitor now for nymphs as they feed in weedy areas along fence lines and roadsides. When this vegetation dries, they will move to farms and home gardens. The nymphal stage is the prime time for management as they are less mobile and more susceptible to treatment.

Most grasshopper species in Utah produce one generation per year. After eggs hatch, grasshopper nymphs develop through five stages before becoming winged adults. Because there are multiple species and they develop at different times, a mix of nymphs and adults will likely be around all summer. Grasshoppers feed on agronomic crops, rangeland plants, weeds, fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. Their chewing mandibles wreak havoc as they consume foliage, flowers, fruits, seed heads, and stems – essentially all above-ground plant parts. If populations are high enough, their feeding can lead to economic setbacks, and in previous years, farmers have reported severe economic loss due to grasshopper damage.

Consider these tips to help reduce

• Manage grasshoppers using insecticides in the form of concentrate sprays, dusts, or baits. Unfortunately, popular organic bait products containing the microsporidium fungus Nosema locustae (e.g. , NoLo Bait and Semaspore) are in short supply or unavailable in many places. Other bait products using active ingredients such as zeta-cypermethrin + bifenthrin, malathion, permethrin, and carbaryl are labeled for grasshopper use in home gardens. Consult your local garden center about what products are currently in stock and verify that the target crop and grasshoppers are listed on the label.

• Bar grasshoppers from small gardens by using row covers with insect netting or a lightweight spun-bond material. They can also be removed by hand (during early, cool mornings) and placed into soapy water. Natural predators such as birds, reptiles, mammals, and other arthropods feed on grasshoppers, but unfortunately, it is not usually enough to diminish damaging numbers. You will likely need to manage the pesky insects yourself. l

grill suspected of causing residential

A Bountiful home sustained significant damage from a fire that appears to have started with a barbecue grill.

“About 7:20 p.m. Thursday we received a report of a structure fire,” said South Davis Metro Fire Deputy Chief Jeff Larsen. “When crews arrived they encountered heavy smoke and an active fire from a single family residence.”

It started outside and progressed rapidly into the attic then overall, he said. “Crews were able to get the fire under control in approximately 20 minutes.”

The investigation is still pending but it appears to have been from the barbecue grill, said Larsen. “There were no injuries to the homeowners or firefighters. Damage is estimated at $100,000.”

Crop conditions in county explained by De Lore Nichols

“Several articles which appeared in the Deseret News under date of Saturday, June 16, were so ridiculous that they were not even funny. It was a childish attempt to explain the Davis County crop and pest conditions. I can understand how an immature mind might hatch up such stories, but I cannot even conceive of the fact that such a paper as The Deseret News would print them.”


Swimming pool delayed by war priority

Because chlorine is vital war material, the proposed swimming pool recently petitioned by 350 persons at Kaysville, will be delayed indefinitely, it was announced by Mayor Emil Whitesides.

The petition was presented by a group of Kaysville boys but it was not deemed feasible at this time to muster such a project. Mayor Whitesides also pointed out that the expenditure for the pool would be out of the question at this time. However, the group of boys were told to obtain estimates and report at a future date.


Water safety program planned for July

Woods Cross approves new budget

A public hearing held in conjunction with the regular Woods Cross City Council meeting was opened by Mayor LeRoy Parkin on Tuesday evening for the purpose of approving the budget for the fiscal year July 1, 1974, to June 30, 1975.

Only four residents were present to observe the budget hearing which was approved by a unanimous vote from the council. The new budget is balanced without an increase in taxes again this year.


Uh, Davis County is…

That’s the bunch of houses along the side of Interstate 15 between Ogden and Salt Lake, isn’t it?

Layton – now, let’s see: that’s somewhere around Ogden, isn’t it? Bountiful –oh, that’s a suburb of Salt Lake City. You mean it’s a different county?

Such reactions are far from unusual when the subject of the state’s smallest county, land-wise, at only 268 square miles not counting water, is brought up. But times are changing.

Part of that “revolution” is being forged through such efforts as the county’s economic development division, coming out with a new, colorful packet that proclaims: “Feel the Spirit of Davis County.”

Soldiers Transfer Cart goes through Bountiful

Members of the Bountiful Veterans Park board are hosting a large group of approx 30-40 Guard Riders for lunch on June 21 that are escorting a Fallen Soldiers Transfer Cart from Seattle to Tennessee. The cart, sponsored by Alaska Airlines, is beautifully designed and facilitates

dignified transfers of fallen soldiers from aircrafts to vehicles. The lunch will take place at the Bountiful Veterans Park next to City Hall, 795 South Main Street at 11:30 a.m. The public is invited and encouraged to arrive by 11 a.m.

Up close with owls on Antelope Island

ANTELOPE ISLAND—It’s a little-known fact that owls when they fly, are almost silent. The familiar sound of flapping wings associated with many birds is absent, and while that helps them be incredibly effective hunters, it does make them difficult to find, especially at night. The Owl Prowl on Antelope Island, however, is making owl spotting a little easier and making these amazing creatures more accessible in the wild.

Trish Ackley, Park Naturalist at Antelope Island, has hosted this event for several years and says that it’s a great opportunity to explore the impressive biodiversity of the island. “We’re known for our bison,” said Ackley, explaining how they and the pronghorn are about as common as squirrels. As interesting as those creatures are, however, “People are looking past really cool stuff to see the bison,” she said.

While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to see bison, there’s more to the island that people are missing, which is what makes events like the Owl Prowl so important. The owls that call Antelope Island home make up a vital part of the local ecosystem, curbing rodent

and insect populations, which, as anyone who has visited Antelope Island in the warm months knows, is a valuable contribution.

There are several species that visitors can hope to encounter as part of the Owl Prowl, but most likely will be the burrowing owl. This smaller spe-

cies, as the name implies, doesn’t build its nests in trees, but rather beneath the soil. These owls differ from their larger cousins in another significant way too: as opposed to many owls who hunt at night, burrowing owls are diurnal, which means they’re alert, awake and active during the daylight hours.

This makes the timing of Owl Prowl just about perfect: starting at 9 a.m. means that guests will be able to see burrowing owls when they’re most active, out and about and hunting for prey. It also means that they have a better chance of spotting other species like the great horned owl, barn owl, or screech owls that frequent the island, as they have a strong chance of being in their nests, resting up for their night hunts.

For newcomers to the event, Ackley recommends bringing along a few essentials, including bug spray, an ultra-fine mesh head net, binoculars (although there will be some provided), sunscreen, and at least a quarter tank of gas as the event requires a bit of driving around the park. Owl Prowl will start at 9 a.m. in the visitor center parking lot on Antelope Island on June 29, and is a family-friendly event, with leashed dogs welcome. l

Small act of blood donation has huge impact on someone else’s life

WOODS CROSS—Giving blood is giving life. It’s a relatively simple thing but it saves thousands of lives every single day. The Woods Cross Youth City Council (WXYCC) joined the American Red Cross to host a blood drive last week in honor of their fellow council member Carter Gourley as he recovers from a heart transplant.

Gourley is a 16-year-old junior at Bountiful High School who was born with a congenital heart condition. He has undergone multiple open-heart surgeries. His recent heart transplant often creates the need for critical blood transfusions during surgery, according to the American Red Cross.

“He’s been on the transplant list,” said WXYCC advisor Becky Gale. “He was admitted to the hospital in February as a high priority and told to expect a six month wait. They found a heart and he got his call. All the stars aligned and he got his heart.”

While he’s recovering the council decided to do service in his honor, she said. “We thought a blood drive would be good.”

He’s the most kind boy there is, said Gale. “I didn’t even know that he had a heart condition. One day he came into a meeting with oxygen. He said, ‘I have a little heart problem.’ He doesn’t like a lot of attention. He’s very humble. He’s an awe-

some kid.”

“We have a lot of ‘in honor of drives,’” said Brittney Bake, Red Cross Account Manager in the Donor Recruitment Department. “Usually it’s the family of kids in the hospital with cancer who want to hold a blood drive to make sure hospital shelves have the blood they need. We also have drives like Carter’s because they quite often need a transfusion.”

People want a way to help and they don’t know what to do, she said. “This gives them the opportunity to give back.”

A unit of blood can save someone’s life, said Bake. “Blood can’t be created. It can only come from a donor. That’s why we need donors that are healthy and able to come to events like this.”

“Blood donation isn't just a simple gesture; it's a lifeline for those in need,” said Michael Smauldon, Executive Director of the American Red Cross Northern Utah & Southwest Wyoming Chapter. “When patients rely on blood products to survive, every donation can mean the difference between life and death. It's truly remarkable how a small act of giving can have such a profound impact on someone else's life.”

The community has really shown up and rallied, said Bake. “The drive has been incredible. It helps people come out when it’s a special cause. Sometimes it’s out of sight out of mind unless it’s someone you know.” l

Trails to explore this summer: Donut Falls

If you’re looking for a family-friendly, leisurely and absolutely gorgeous trail to hike this summer, I have just the place for you.

Donut Falls is a stunning waterfall in Salt Lake County that isn’t difficult to get to. If you don’t mind a bit of rock scrambling and some wet shoes, this will be a blast for you and your friends or family. It’s a 1.5 mile hike with very little elevation change, so it isn’t too taxing to walk. There are two routes you can take to get to the falls, one takes you over a bridge (which is currently out) and the other takes you along the creek.

If you don’t want to scramble over a makeshift bridge of logs, I would suggest using the alternate route

along the creek. Both will give you incredible views and won’t wear you out. The trail will lead you through private land-holdings within the National Forest. When passing through this property, it is especially important to stick to the trail and watch out for posted guidance.

The trail to get to the falls is very well-marked and doesn’t give you the chance to get lost or confused as you hike. The trail ends once you pass the bridge and leads you right to a boulder field. This is where you’ll have to get a little technical and scramble over the rocks. Be prepared to get your feet wet during this part.

Once you’ve gotten past the boulders, you’ll finally see where Donut Falls got its name. The waterfall passes through a donut shaped hole in the rocks. The falls pour through the hole into a small pool before trickling down the rocks.

In total, the hike only takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete and it’s easy enough to bring your kids along. Dogs aren’t allowed on the trail, so make sure to keep them home if you want to come check out the falls. Some areas of the trail can get steep, but it levels out fairly quickly and gives you a chance to catch your breath before the next incline.

Keep an eye out for wildlife in the area, you’re likely to see some of the little woodland creatures roaming around the trail. Bunnies, squirrels and chipmunks are common to see as you walk along the trail.

There’s a bit of a drive to get to the trailhead, but the canyon road is stunning and will give you plenty to look at as you make your way there. If you’re looking to make a day out of it, there are plenty of other trails you can explore as you go up or down the canyon. l

Remaining big game permits to be sold

DAVIS COUNTY—As strange as it may seem, fall is already fast approaching, and for those who missed out on the initial buck deer and bull elk drawing this year, there’s still hope: the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has announced that the remainder of those slots will be sold beginning July 9 on a first-come, first-served basis.

These permits are unlimited and will be available for purchase from July 9 until the last day of the last general-season elk hunt.

• General-season any bull elk permits – for adults – will be available beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, July 11. The general-season rifle bull elk hunt is split into two seasons.

Information from the Utah Division of Wildlife

Bountiful Lake:

DWR spring trout stocking typically begins at the community ponds in early March and continues into June. Trout catch rates are good to great during these spring months. We recommend using a piece of nightcrawler fished below a bobber, or trout dough bait fished off the bottom or behind a casting bubble. Lures (such as inline spinners, casting spoons and marabou jigs) and streamers (such as Pistol Pete flies, wooly buggers and leech patterns) can also be effective.

East Canyon Reservoir and State Park: In the spring, trout fishing – for both boat and

permits are not left over from any type of drawing – they are set aside specifically for youth hunters each year. The total number of permits available and the applicable units are listed on the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources website.

• The limited-entry buck deer permits that remain after the big game drawing will also be available beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9. There are a total of 15 permits remaining.

Bison permits

• Over-the-counter bison permits will all be available beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9. These permits for the Nine Mile hunting unit bison permits are unlimited. (Hunters must complete an online orientation course before they can purchase one of the

shore anglers – is usually best in shallow to midwater depths. For shore anglers, try fishing trout dough bait or a worm off the bottom in shallow water. Boat anglers can do well trolling shallow- to medium-diving crankbaits or a pop gear and a worm or a squid and dodger combination. As the water warms, smallmouth bass fishing will pick up along shallow rocky areas, especially in the afternoon when the water has had a chance to warm up close to shore. Smallmouth bass can be caught during these times with suspending crankbaits, jerk baits, sinking flies, plastics (wacky rig, Texas rig, and Carolina rig), and even a jig tipped with a worm under a bobber. Try casting both parallel to the shore and perpendicular to the shore.

Farmington Pond:

DWR spring trout stocking typically begins at the community ponds in early March and continues into June. Trout catch rates are good to great during these spring months. We recommend using a piece of nightcrawler fished below a bobber, or trout dough bait fished off the bottom or behind a casting bubble. Lures (such as inline spinners, casting spoons and marabou jigs) and streamers (such as Pistol Pete flies, wooly buggers and leech patterns) can also be effective.

Jordanelle Reservoir:

Fishing forecast (June through August): Jordanelle Reservoir is a very popular summer water-

bison permits.) The season runs from Aug. 1 to Jan. 31, 2025.

• More details about the permits (including which hunting units they are for and how many are available for each unit) can be found on the DWR website. While the web page isn’t actively updated after the permits go on sale, hunters can check the total remaining number of permits prior to the start of the sales days.

People interested in buying a permit can purchase it online, at a DWR office or from any available license agent. However, because these permits go on sale beginning at 8 a.m., interested parties are encouraged to check the hours of their nearest available agent before traveling there. All the license agents can be found on the DWR website.

There will also be a virtual waiting room for those buying online, to better manage the pressure of the high volume of people wanting to buy permits. If a customer refreshes or navigates away from the queue page, they may lose their spot in line and have to start over.

“If you happened to miss the big game drawing or were unsuccessful, this is your last opportunity for a chance to hunt big game in Utah this fall,” DWR Wildlife Licensing Coordinator Lindy Varney said. “Don’t forget that you can mentor a youth during these hunts, making it a great opportunity to pass on your love of the outdoors to the next generation.”

Hunters are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the 2024 Utah Big Game Field Regulations Guidebook before they start scouting and planning their hunt for the fall. l

craft recreation destination. Recreational boating, swimming, and non-angler shore use are high during these months, particularly in the Hailstone boat ramp and Ross Creek areas. Fishing weekends and holidays can be challenging for boat and shore anglers. DWR recommends anglers seek out less congested, low-traffic areas to help improve their fishing experience. Fishing early mornings, later evenings, and weekdays during these months can also improve angler success and overall satisfaction.

Boat anglers are typically able to launch from the main Hailstone boat ramp and PWC boat ramp through August. However, low water levels can reduce boat ramp capacity and/or close ramps for motorized launching when levels get too low. DWR recommends motorized boat anglers check Utah State Park Boat Ramp Conditions often this summer to ensure you're able to launch safely.

Kaysville Ponds:

DWR spring trout stocking typically begins at the community ponds in early March and continues into June. Trout catch rates are good to great during these spring months. We recommend using a piece of nightcrawler fished below a bobber, or trout dough bait fished off the bottom or behind a casting bubble. Lures (such as inline spinners, casting spoons and marabou jigs) and streamers (such as Pistol Pete flies, wooly buggers and leech patterns) can also be effective. l

Warriors Over the Wasatch Air Show flies into town

HILL AIR FORCE BASE—The much anticipated Hill Air Force Base Warriors Over the Wasatch Air Show is back. The two-day show is open to the public June 29-30. This year’s theme is Breaking Barriers Together, meaning it’s all one community.

“We expect 250,000-400,000 people,” said Kevin Ireland, executive director of the Utah Air Show Foundation. “It’s all free.”

Ireland has been involved since 1995. “I was a volunteer and then it grew into today. It's gotten so big that we became a 501(c)(3) and I do it full time now.”

The show comes every two years. “We sit down early with HAFB and decide the theme and what we’ll feature. This year we’ll have heritage aircraft as well as modern day.”

There will also be civilian aerial acts, he said. “We go to conventions and hire the best names to come in and fly in the show.”

One of the highlights is Tora Tora Tora, said Ireland. “It reenacts the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor with eight aircrafts in the air.”

The show features WWII aircraft, an F-35 demonstration to see its capabilities and the US Navy F/A-18, he said. “You can see what the Super Hornet does.”

There will be static aircraft, play areas and STEM City, Ireland said. STEM

City features a display of hands-on booths and activities to encourage students and educate parents on opportunities in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math.

“It is interesting not only to see what goes on with flying but for businesses that are creating new ideas, like robotics.”

It’s grown every year, he said. “We try to accommodate as many people as we can so they can come and enjoy the show.”

Ireland recommends using public transportation to the show. “Take the train to the Clearfield Station and a bus will take you right to the flight line. It’s the quickest and cleanest way to come to the air show.”

“Our airshow is one of the most act-packed air shows in the country,” said Lt. Col. Diana Bradfield, 75th Operations Support Squadron commander. “We just want our community to be able

in the touring company’s production of Taming of the Shrew. Fred and Lilli bicker as much backstage as on.


Me Kate’ just the ticket for summer night’s entertainment

CENTERVILLE—Mix a little bit of Shakespeare with some behind the scenes romantic squabbles and what follows is the delightful musical comedy “Kiss Me Kate.” The CenterPoint Theatre production centers around the backstage antics of a touring company performing “Taming of the Shrew.”

The two lead characters, Lilli Vanessi and her ex-husband Fred Graham butt heads every time they’re together both on and off stage while still carrying a torch for each other. When Lilli gets a bouquet from Fred made up of the same flowers as she had on her wedding day she’s delighted that he remembered. What she doesn’t know is that they were meant for a pretty young cast member Fred has had his

eye on.

Once the mistake is revealed, Lilli threatens to quit the production and leave with her fiancé General Harrison Howell to Washington. Fred knows he has to stop her or the play will be finished. In the meantime, two thugs show up to collect a debt that Fred doesn’t owe because someone else forged his name on the IOU. In a stroke of genius, Fred enlists the men to scare Lilli into staying with the show.

Lilli reluctantly plays her part as Katharine the Shrew but uses the character to get back at Fred for his infidelity. The pair spar back and forth on stage then pick up where they left off backstage.

Kiss Me Kate is filled with upbeat music including “Tom, Dick or Harry,” “I Hate Men” and “Too Darn Hot.”

Addison Welch (MWF) gives a

great performance playing the philandering Fred Graham/Petruchio as he tries to make amends with Lilli Vanessi/Katharine played by Michelle Blake (MWF). The chemistry between them sizzles and their voices are superb. Blake shows off her musical talent, hitting some operatic high notes as the Shrew. Welch matches it in his rendition of “Kiss Me Kate.”

Keely Parry (MWF) stirs up trouble as vixen Lois Lane/Bianca who has every man vying for her attention. Kaltin Michael Kirby (MWF) is the long-suffering Baptista who is just trying to marry off his difficult daughter Katharine. So when Petruchio comes along, he’s willing to make any kind of deal to get him to take her off his hands. Throw in the thugs, played by Jeremy Botelho and Brandon Garside (MWF) who disguise themselves as

characters in the play to keep Lilli in line and comedy ensues.

A great cast of singers and dancers, including a fun tap number, has the audience humming along and tapping their toes too.

With plenty of laughs as mistaken identities cause confusion and romantic mixups, “Kiss Me Kate” has just the right formula for a wonderful summer night’s entertainment.

“Kiss Me Kate” runs through July 13 Monday – Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with Saturday matinees at 3:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $21.50$39.50 and can be purchased online at, 801-298-1302 or at the box office, 525 N. 400 West, Centerville. l

Food and family central to Aconcagua Bakery

LAYTON—For many, the decision to open a small business is one made after years of careful planning, but for the Pardo family, it was something that really just kind of happened. The way the Aconcagua Bakery started, however, really speaks to the quality of product that the family produces each day for their customers.

After relocating from Florida to Utah to be closer to family, the Pardo family began carving out their niche in the region, and for Pablo Pardo’s mother, that meant baking. It wasn’t long before, as Pardo put it, “The neighbors on this side wanted some, and the other neighbors wanted some, it just kind of snowballed!” Although it wasn’t something they had planned, the family decided to open a storefront to keep up with the increasing demand.

This decision certainly wasn’t without its fair share of challenges. Both Pardo and his father had worked as mechanics prior to opening the bakery. “No one really knew what they were doing,” said Pardo, speaking about the massive amount of work it takes to open such an establishment. Over time, however, “you get accustomed to it,” said Pardo, saying how now, he just sort of takes new paperwork in stride.

The hard work didn’t end there either. Pardo explained how the work day starts around 5:00 in the morning when they start the ovens and lay out the pastry to prove. The first batches usually hit the display case around 8 or 9 in the morning, and from that point to close, Pardo and his family are churning out more and more of the delicious baked goods they’re known for. It’s a lot of hard work, but the community response has shown that it’s worth it.

Even on a “slow” morning, (Tuesday), the dining room was bustling with people coming and going,

many staying to sit down, and eat their delicious pastry, which Pardo recommended highly, “They take way too long to make for people to not enjoy them!” Though there’s plenty to choose from on their menu, Pardo recommended specifically the “Vigilantes” – a delicious, croissant-like pastry available with a variety of toppings or fillings.

Contrary to what many people may be expecting from a South American bakery, the Argentine Empanadas aren’t what you’ll find from a Colombian or Venezuelan restaurant, and while all kinds are delicious, Pardo explained why theirs are a little different. Argentina’s current culture evolved from a mix of Spanish and indigenous like many of their neighbors, but unlike other South American countries, there was also a strong French and Italian influence as well.

Those influences are seen in many products at Aconcagua, from the croissant-like Vigilantes and Me-

dialunas to the wheat flour used in their empanadas as opposed to a corn-based masa. Even though Argentine fare is their bread and butter, Pardo correctly pointed out, “Utah is becoming more and more diverse,” and because of that, their menu continues to grow. Aconcagua has recently added items from neighboring countries and plans to add even more in the future.

More than anything, Aconcagua is about food and family for the Pardos, and spending time in the bakery it’s plain to see. It’s not uncommon to see members of the Pardo family serving up their traditional recipes, and spending time with their clients, making sure that not only is everything meeting their high standards, but making the customers feeling welcome as well.

Aconcagua Bakery and Cafe is located at 715 North Main Street, in Layton and features a wide variety of fresh-made products available from Tuesday through Saturday. l

As the Fourth of July approaches, North Salt Lake is abuzz with excitement and preparation for the annual Liberty Fest. Central to the festivities are the much-anticipated fireworks show at Eaglewood Golf Course, located at 1110 East Eaglewood Drive, North Salt Lake, and set to kick off at 4 p.m. on July 3.

Tyler Abettlen, the general manager of Eaglewood Golf Course, is at the heart of the preparations. “A lot of collaboration, a lot of work goes into it,” he said, highlighting the extensive effort by city staff and employees. “We’ve tried to put some numbers on that; we have so many employees and city staff that it’s hard to keep track of cost. It’s a good amount. We’ve already had several meetings. We don’t start setting up until that day, but public works has already started to organize everything. Hundreds of hours have been put in.”

For Abettlen, the fireworks show is a unique event, unlike any other in the area. “It’s a different setting than any other show. The square footage is double or triple the size of other fireworks shows,” he said, emphasizing the scale and the special atmosphere that makes North Salt Lake’s celebration stand out. His favorite part? “I look forward to the day after. I like to see all the people that come up. I like to see the residents and the new people come up and see how much they enjoy Eaglewood.”

In stark contrast, 9-year-old David Arbizu, a resident of North Salt Lake, views the fireworks show from a perspective of pure wonder and excitement. “Fireworks!” he exclaims when asked what he is most looking forward to. For

David, the event is a highlight of his year. “We go watch the fireworks show at the golf course, it’s so much fun!” he said. David’s excitement extends beyond the fireworks. “There’s a lot of good food too,” he said, noting that the food is a major highlight for him. “Most excited about the food, though, definitely,” he adds with a grin.

As the event draws nearer, the community comes together in a flurry of activity. The golf course becomes a hive of preparations, with workers setting up stages, food vendors preparing their stalls, and volunteers decorating. The air is filled with the sounds of bustling activity and the scent of delicious food being readied for the big night.

Abettlen ensures everything is on track, reminding attendees to, “prepare for parking, come early, come at 4 p.m. But also, if you want, beat the heat and come later and beat the heat by sunscreen and drink plenty of water.” Meanwhile, David and his family plan their evening ahead of time and are eager to choose their perfect spot on the grass to watch the sky light up.

Tyler ensures everything is on track, reminding attendees to "prepare for parking, come early, come at 4 PM. But also, if you want, beat the heat and come later and beat the heat by sunscreen and drink plenty of water." Meanwhile, David and his family are busy with their own preparations. They wanted to remind everyone to gather big blankets, water, money for delicious food, and of course, bug spray to ensure they are comfortable and ready for the big event.l
