Dear Editor, Imagine the grief you would have over having to bury your two-year-old; your little boy who loved trucks and trains, who gave the best little-boy hugs and said the funniest things, the boy whom you loved so fiercely. Maybe for Memorial Day your family members might purchase special plants and even go so far as to replant them in a nice planter or make a hanging basket for a shepherd’s crook to leave on the headstone you and your spouse so carefully designed, the one with your son’s beautiful smile and bright blue eyes smiling out at you from the picture you had picked for the stone. For at least a week those mementos would sit at his gravesite, showing all who walk by that someone still alive cares for the little boy buried there. Now imagine returning a few days later to the cemetery to pick up those specially picked out planters, hanging baskets or flowers, ready to plant them or place them in your yard to enjoy all summer and help remind you of your little boy and the loved ones who thought of you when they picked out the plants for your son (and told you to be sure and remember to collect them from the cemetery before cleanup day so you could keep them). But wait! The special, unique plant is gone! The mixed planter your mother repotted in a nicer pot is missing! The shepherd’s crook with the basket your son’s grandmother spent time planting with flowers in colors vibrant and reminiscent of your son’s vibrant life is also missing! Has the cemetery cleanup crew come early this year? No, the ubiquitous mums are still there. But the special items have been stolen. Now, not only do you still mourn your son but you feel the violation of having been robbed of items meant to help buoy your spirits over the next season, a reminder from loved ones who thought enough of you to bring
something special to the cemetery that you could enjoy at home afterward. Unfortunately, this has been our experience at the sweet, peaceful Herriman Cemetery, not just once, but year after year for the past six or seven years. It seems that no matter how early we return after Memorial Day to collect the special plants, they have been stolen (and yes, even the shepherd’s crook). It sure feels as if someone knows to look for our son’s grave to steal something unique and special to add to his or her own yard for free. After it happened again this last week, I decided I have had more than enough. I haven’t brought anything more unique than a mum for the past several years and after last week I asked my mother to stop bringing special plants to the grave too. How sad that on the little cemetery plot, the resting spot for our little boy (property which our family legally owns), we don’t feel safe to leave something more special than a mum for Memorial Day week because we know someone is out there waiting to steal it. If you or someone you know thinks nothing of taking “free” plants from the cemetery, assuming that “they’ll just get thrown away anyway,” please stop and remember that each headstone represents an actual person, loved by someone and perhaps by many. You have no way of knowing if parents, siblings, children, or friends of the loved one are planning to retrieve those items before cleanup day to continue to receive enjoyment from them. Do I really need to make a sign that says, “If your child isn’t buried here, do not remove anything from his grave!”? We have already been robbed of watching our little boy grow up; please stop robbing us of items meant to support us in our time of need!

Graduate Gets Surprise Of Her Life
adison Hughes knew it was a special day already. Not only was she practicing in her long-awaited high school graduation ceremony from Herriman High, but she was also waiting to be awarded what she was told was a new annual award, “The Most Charitable Student,” or so she thought. Madison and her parents were called onto the stage to accept the award and after a few words from the school administrator, a special video appeared behind Madison and her parents.
The video was from Madison’s brother, PFC Nicholas Hughes, who had been stationed for a year in Germany with the United States Army. Seeing his familiar face and hearing his voice had the family in tears. “You’ve grown into a very, very beautiful young woman today and I know after graduation you’re going to be very successful,” PFC Hughes said in the video, before he actually walked out on stage. The entire Hughes family had no idea that Nicholas had returned; he had to lie to his family for the first time to pull it off. All the students and staff in the auditorium stood and clapped and cheered when PFC Hughes entered the stage. Madison ran to her brother, hugged him and cried while their parents stood in disbelief. “We had no idea,” said Madison’s mother, Lisa Hughes. “We were kind of wondering what this was all about, if this award was just something everyone gets, but we didn’t have any idea it was for this.” PFC Hughes felt it was important to be back stateside for his sister’s graduation. He could have spent more time in

Germany sightseeing but knew his presence would be more appreciated at home. “My brothers and my sisters are really like my own children. They’re my world,” said PFC Hughes. It was also the first time Nicholas got to meet his fourmonth-old little brother, Jacob. “This is Jacob William Hughes,” said PFC Hughes, while holding the baby above his head.

$100 Million Mine Beautification
By Lewi Lewis
io Tinto Kennecott has begun a beatification process called “The Alternative View Construction Project,” a facelift of the Bingham Canyon Mine, enhancing the aesthetics of areas visible from nearly everywhere in the Salt Lake Valley and will provide “optionality for mine-life extension.” “This work will be similar to other large-scale construction projects seen across the valley each year,” Kennecott environmental engineer Zeb Kenyon said. More than a century of mining has taken place on Salt Lake Valley’s west side, the Oquirrh Mountains; the main pit has produced such an amount of valuable metal, it has been known as the ‘richest hole on earth,’ as well as one of the largest manmade ones. Mining has taken its toll on the mountainside. “While this work will be more visible compared to what we do inside the mine, we are committed to minimizing impacts and maintaining all regulatory compliance,” Kenyon said.
The Alternative View Construction Project is occurring on the south and east facing waste rock piles, a long-term improvement in the “appearance and performance of the waste rock piles and associated storm water management systems” by enhancing surface and ground water infrastructure. The material will be regraded at a slope, allowing for the regrowth of vegetation on the surface, Senior advisor of communications Kyle Bennett said in a recent press release. Reclamation of the freshly placed material will supposedly create long-term benefits by improving the aesthetics of the base of the valley-facing west rock piles. The project also “provides optionality for mine-life extension work that could take the operation through 2029 and enable further reclamation of the historic waste rock piles.” “I’m privileged to be a part of this project because of the potential it affords for future reclamation and the optionality it provides to help us extend the life of the mine,” said Kennecott
project manager Michael Piercy. “The investment in this project underscores the great potential that exists in this operation.” l

Annual Car Show Is Good Time For Good Cause
By Aimee L. Cook
or the past nine years, always following the Friday after Father’s Day, Ren Field and his family have lined their neighborhood street with cars. From a 1909 Model T Ford to a 2014 Challenger, you never know what’s going to show up on the street. “We do this because it’s fun, and because we can,” Field said. “It’s a family affair which
makes it even more fun. One of my brothers cooks the food, another brother judges the cars. My wife and son help set up, take down and whatever else is needed. It’s a good time.” Field charges a $10 entry fee to those who want to have their car judged. With that you receive two meal tickets. Drawing tickets are $1 each and this year they received more
than $4,000 in donations for the drawings. “This year we had some great prizes to give away. Home Depot gave us a tabletop barbeque, and Firestone gave us 25 free oil changes, ” Field said. “We could not get over how generous all of the vendors were.” Local grocery stores Harmon’s and Peterson’s Fresh Market helped out with various food donations, but Field buys 400 hamburgers and 300 hotdogs and all the condiments himself. It’s a labor of love for him and his family, and well worth it. Each year they donate $1,500 to the American Diabetes Association from the proceeds of the car show. In addition, they spend more than 1,000 volunteer hours on the event, which made a great Eagle Scout project for Field’s son, Sam. “I kind of already have to do the car show and it’s a lot of work,” Sam said. ”But it’s a lot of fun and this year I got to play in the band. Everyone that attended helped me with my Eagle project without even knowing it. It was cool.”

Oldest Living Riverton Resident Honored By Briana Kelley
ay Store Stradley was honored at Riverton City’s June 16 council meeting as the longest living resident of Riverton. Stradley was born on March 14, 1920 and recently celebrated her 95th birthday on the very property where she was born. “I love Riverton! It has been my favorite place forever,” Stradley exclaimed. Stradley’s recognition is part of the city’s 150-year celebration aimed at highlighting the city’s heritage and recognizing and increasing community pride. Stradley exuded both love and pride in her hometown through her words and prepared remarks. Mayor Bill Applegarth gave an affectionate tribute about Stradley and her love of Riverton, reading excerpts from her history and praising the goodness of both her and her late husband, Dallas Stradley. Petite and spunky, Stradley drew laughs

property on which I was born, so I feel really honored and I feel blessed.” from the crowd more than once during her recognition. She grew emotional as Applegarth recounted parts of her life and was very appreciative of her family and the acknowledgment. “This is a wonderful honor,” Stradley said. Stradley grew up on a farm in Riverton. She later married Dallas Stradley. As newlyweds, they rented a small apartment in Riverton. When their first-born son was just four months old, her husband Dallas was drafted into the services to fight in World War II. Dallas fought in North Africa and India for almost four years in what she described as “the long and fearsome years of being a war widow.” He returned home safely and they soon looked into purchasing a home. They looked in surrounding cities but did not find anything they liked. Stradley’s father gave them the option of building on an acre of his property. “That was the very property on which I was born, so I feel really honored and I feel blessed,” Stradley said. They built their home and enjoyed 68 years of marriage together. They had many adventures in life and took many trips, but Stradley always looked forward to returning to their Riverton home. To her, Riverton brought a feeling of welcome and happiness and was the best place to be. She described it as “our forever home that will always hold a special place in our hearts.”
Applegarth also shared a poem by Stradley that he called “really a treasure.” In it, she praises her hometown:
“Riverton, our love for you Keeps shining through When skies are blue or gray. We can’t erase The memories we always face When we are far away. Your quiet streets, your flowers so sweet, Your friendly neighborhood Make life worthwhile As heaven smiles Upon all that is good. Riverton, we honor you, Our town so neat and true. We honor you because we love you so. Let your light so shine To welcome us at any time And to guide us wherever we may go. Your trees so high, Your clear blue sky, Your handshakes, your smiles Welcome us as we return to our dear town From never-ending miles.
Riverton, may your banners fly Far into the sky, when the sun is high or low. You hold a spot deep in our hearts, No matter where we may go.” The crowd gave her a standing ovation as she sat beaming and surrounded by her family. “I feel this is really and truly a wonderful honor for me,” she said. Stradley is now the most tenured individual consistently living as a long-term Riverton City resident. She began as the very youngest member in her neighborhood and is now the very oldest. She has written her history in a booklet that her family has made available to Riverton City’s historical library. Stradley was also honored in the parade on July 3. A full version of her poem is available on Riverton City’s website. l

Mayor Appoints New Riverton Chief Of Police By Briana Kelley
ayor Bill Applegarth has appointed Lieutenant Rosa “Rosie” Rivera as the new Unified Police Department Riverton Precinct Chief of Police. This decision comes following current Chief Rod Norton’s announcement to retire July 15. Lieutenant Rivera has been a police officer for 22 years. She began her policing career at Weber State College. She then transferred to the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, now the Unified Police Department (UPD), and later to Taylorsville Police Department. She currently works as an executive lieutenant for UPD assigned to the Riverton Precinct. She comes highly recommended by Applegarth, Norton and others involved in the appointment process. “I am very excited to hear that you may be considering Lt. Rosa Rivera as my replacement. Let me offer the strongest of encouragement and confidence in Rosie being absolutely the very best choice for the job. I truly hope she is appointed and can continue the wonderful progress we have made and more,” Norton said in an email to Applegarth.
Riverton’s current Chief of Police, Rod Norton, recently announced his retirement will be July 15. Photo courtesy of UPD website. At the June 16 council meeting, Councilmember Sheldon Stewart said, “I really am in support of Rosie and the replacement on this. Personally, I have engaged with Rosie and I can’t think of a better person to take on this position.” Rivera’s past assignments vary broadly and include uniformed patrol, community policing, gang investigations and watch commander. She has directly engaged with the public through media relations as a public information officer. She has also been a supervisor for violent crimes investigations,

When asked what she hopes to accomplish while serving Riverton City, Rivera said, “The goal is to continue the success that we’ve had in reducing the crime rates for Riverton and to continue to keep the citizens safe. We will also be focusing on community policing and working closely with the public and Riverton City.” In an unusually divisive vote, Riverton City Council consented to this appointment. Council members were upset due to the late notification of the appointment but did not object to Lieutenant Rivera. They approved the appointment in a 4-1 vote and asked that future appointments include more time to discuss and meet with potential appointees. Applegarth apologized for the late notifications, stating that it was not the intent and unfortunately communications broke down. Rivera will be promoted in a formal ceremony by UPD. The date for this event had not yet been decided at the time of publication. Rivera has received multiple awards throughout her career; most notable are Police Officer of the Year in 1999, recipient of the Distinguished Woman of the Year Award in 2005 from the American Association of University Women’s Wasatch Branch and Supervisor of the year in 2007 for Taylorsville Police Department. She has also been a mentor for gang-involved youth. Rivera has lived in Riverton for 22 years. She is grateful for her family, faith and career. Rivera received her bachelor’s degree in business management from University of Phoenix and plans to pursue her master’s degree in the future. She has three adult children and five grandchildren. l

Future TRAX Line Extensions By Briana Kelley
TA announced plans to extend TRAX lines south through Herriman Towne Center and Riverton on 12600 South. This announcement comes at the end of a five-year feasibility study conducted by UTA, which focused on extending the transportation network in the southwest Salt Lake County area. Though far from completion, this UTA project is at a significant milestone and UTA representatives are ready to present the proposal to the public. UTA representatives Hal Johnson and Brianne Emery updated Riverton City Council on June 16 and discussed appropriate next steps for the project. The council was also asked informally to preserve the proposed route as a transit corridor. The proposed TRAX line will continue south from Daybreak and travel to Herriman Towne Center. It will then

UTA representatives want to gather public input through two open houses to be held in Riverton and Herriman in the upcoming months. Johnson and Emery will continue to work closely with Assistant City Manager Jeff Hawker to organize the open house in Riverton and share information. After assessing public opinion, UTA will continue developing plans for expansion. However, before funding is obtained and construction begins, an environmental study needs to be conducted as well as approval of preliminary and final engineering plans. Councilmember Paul Wayman objected to the proposed route and asked that other routes be considered. He stated a conflict of
UTA has proposed extending TRAX lines through Herriman and Riverton. This map shows the most preferred alternative from UTA’s feasibility study conducted in 2010.

The TRAX line will then turn east on 12600 South and continue on until reaching Draper. “We looked at many, many different alternatives and there has actually been a previous study that looked at other alternatives, and this is the one that kind of has come through that process as the best alternative. It has the least impact, the most ridership. We feel that it serves the community best coming through that screening process,” Johnson said. The feasibility studies began in 2010 and covered a 33-square-mile region. Both studies aimed to identify the purpose and need for extended transportation in this area and then determine and screen alternatives. Throughout the process UTA has endeavored to educate and include residents, business owners and city officials through an open house, public workshop, online survey

However, Johnson explained that alternatives have already been analyzed in two long-term studies and the route that continues down 12600 South is the most feasible at this time. Councilmember Tricia Tingey and others agreed. Looking at other alternatives again “would take us years in the wrong direction,” Tingey said.
espite Wayman’s objections, all other council members gave a nod to take the proposal to the public and move forward. “There is a lot of work that has gone into this and a lot of work will continue to go into this,” Mayor Bill Applegarth said. All residents will be invited to all open houses; there will be one open house for each city. At the time of publication, open house dates, times and locations had yet to be decided. l

Riverton City Adopts Final Budget By Briana Kelley Riverton City Council voted unanimously on June 16 to approve the city’s budget for 2015-2016. “Thank you for everyone’s work on this,” Mayor Bill Applegarth said. “A lot of work has gone into this by staff and the council and I commend everyone for their efforts.”
Months prior to public hearings, city staff worked to direct resources to the priorities discussed in the city council’s strategic plan. Applegarth submitted the mayor’s budget to the council on May 5. After a month of consideration, discussion and revision, the council presented their budget and held the first public hearing on the budget at a June 2 council meeting. During the June 16 city council meeting, council members unanimously adopted the final amended budget for fiscal year 2014-2015 and both the municipal fee schedule and final budget for this year, fiscal year 2015-2016. In doing so, the city remains in compliance with auditory laws and statutes. The multi-million dollar budget outlines all proposed city revenues and expenditures, including a $10,000 tree maintenance budget and a proposed city website overhaul. The council also set aside $1,000 to be awarded to an approved historical society during Riverton’s historic 150-year celebration this year. Councilwoman Tricia Tingey’s budget recommendations in the June 2 council meeting negated the need for sanitation fee increases this year. Riverton city does not charge property tax, which is atypical of most municipal governments. “We are so happy that Riverton City charges no property tax,” Applegarth said. City staff and council members were relieved and content with the budget adoption. “I want to commend staff, I want to commend this council for all of the deliberations, all of the negotiations that have occurred, and the compromise…At the end of the day, we’ve got about a $36 million budget to run the operations of the city. And that, to me, is fantastic,” Councilmember Trent Staggs said. The budget went into effect July 1.

Nicole Martin Keeps Herriman Moving Forward A Paid Advertorial By Megan Mahajan
t takes less than 60 seconds with Nicole Martin to get to know her passion for three things: her city, communications and a good challenge. These three things combined made a run for city council the perfect next move in her career. Martin worked in the private sector for 15 years before becoming the economic development director for Herriman City. Martin’s utilization of non-traditional methods of communicating with the residents of Herriman not only set her apart as a game changer in her field, but also set the city of Herriman apart as an example for other cities to follow. The main event that led others to see the kind of impact social media can truly make was the machine gun fire in 2010. Martin utilized the city’s Twitter account to alert the residents about evacuations, road closures and places to stay. After this, the Utah Division of Emergency Management even referred to Herriman as a “prime example” of how to put social media to good use. Martin was recently named one of the Utah Business “30 Women to Watch,” for daring to step outside of the norms and take on the task of making government communications both interesting and effective. She adds this honor to a “Best of State” award and a “Communicator of the Year” award. When asked why she felt she was a good candidate for city council, Martin responded: “I think that I bring an institutional knowledge of government. I bring the ability to communicate municipal issues to the residents. I bring a strong economic development background and a really expanded network across the state

that can help the city move forward, [as well as] legislative experience. These five things made me feel like I was certainly a qualified candidate to sit on the city council and move Herriman forward.” Keeping her city moving forward was the resounding theme as Martin spoke about why she was running for City Council and what she hoped to accomplish. “We are a growing city; we don’t have time to have dysfunction and to not move forward. We need to be growing our city. If you’re not growing your city in a smart way, you’re stuck with it for 50 years until it’s time to redevelop. The decisions that are made today are absolutely vital [to] keep Herriman moving forward.” Not only has Martin worked in communications for both Herriman and Sandy City, she also works with the Utah League of Cities and Towns, serves on the marketing committee at the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, and is on the board of Mountain West Small Business Finance. She personally established the Herriman Economic Development Committee and successfully ran it during her time working with the city, as well as serving as the Herriman City liaison to the Southwest Chamber of Commerce. Martin’s abilities in communications and her willingness to do things that a city government is typically afraid to do have made her an incredible success. When asked what her favorite part of her job is, she replied without hesitation, “The challenge.” “For me, it’s the ultimate challenge to first have a thor-

When asked what advice she would give to other women, Martin said: “Try it. Why not? Life is short … I would say that the opportunities are there for every single woman and the sky is the limit. The only thing holding back women is themselves and thinking that they can’t do it.” Martin sites enthusiasm, flexibility, and a strong work ethic as her personal recipe for success and encourages anyone, male or female, looking to make a difference to always bring those traits to the table.

Seniors Pull Off Class Prank With Balloons By Aimee L. Cook
South V alley City Journal
the Chalkboard Energy Solutions Donates To Herriman High English Department
erriman High seniors Natalie Barker and Tyler Martinez put their thinking caps on before their graduation caps at the end of the school year. Both wanted to pull off something fun and memorable but with zero damage to the school. When the idea of balloons came up, they decided they had a winner. Figuring they would need at least 10,000 blown up latex balloons to make an impression, they then had to find out a way to pay for them. “Mickey Rosqvist helped me out by sending out text messages to every senior we could think of,” Martinez said. “We informed the students what we wanted to do and told them it would cost around $5 to $10 per person. After we got enough people to get on board
By Aimee Cook The English department at Herriman High School received a generous donation from Energy Solutions with the help of English teachers Liz Anderson and Erika Plummer. Both teachers visited the staff of Energy Solutions and presented their proposal on what was needed to help their students improve their writing skills.

we ordered the balloons through Amazon and then emptied two Wal-Mart locations of all their latex balloons. In total we had just a little over 12,000 balloons.” Upon arrival of the balloons, the seniors would need to call upon others to get the thousands of balloons blown up and transported to the school. They gathered at Tanesha Bland’s house where the group inflated the balloons using an air compressor. For two days they blew up balloons: some filled them while others had the job of tying them. Trailers were provided by Ashton Adams and Bland to transport the balloons to the school. “We spent two days blowing up the balloons and the night before we dumped them in the school. We were up until about 2 a.m. to finish them,” Martinez said. “We knew that the doors would be open to the school at 5 a.m. on the day we planned to deliver them so, running off less than three hours of sleep, we woke up to take them to school. We pulled

the trailers up to the back and began taking industrial bags full of the balloons into the building. We had people filling the bags in the trailers and some grabbing the bags and dumping them in the school. It took us about an hour to get all of them into the school. The janitors were the first to see them and to our surprise they found it pretty amusing.” As students and faculty arrived at school and heard about the sea of balloons, they just had to stop to look. The preschool children had fun running through them and students and faculty took a minute to snap a photo or two. “Before class started the student body popped all of them and our commons floor was covered in over 12,000 popped balloons,” Tyler said. “As sad as it was to see our work be destroyed, it made it a lot easier to clean up. It was so much fun. I really enjoyed being a part of the first real senior prank at Herriman High School. Everyone who helped make it happen said they were glad they were a part of it.” l
They proposed that a new computer cart with 42 Chromebooks would allow larger classes of students to utilize the computer lab at the school, which currently can only accommodate 36 students. The new computer cart awarded to the English department will be used every hour of every school day. Students will now have the opportunity to do in-class writing at least once every two to three weeks.

10 Years Of Excellence Celebration By The Community Reports
orth Star Academy has been a top performing school in Utah in comparison to other charter schools and traditional public schools, which is one of the reasons we have 986 students who have applied to our lottery for the 2015 - 2016 school year and remain full each year. This was an opportunity to recognize the many people who make this happen. Our Parent Teacher Organization, Board of Trustees, North Star Administration, and faculty members lead by Shana Absey as the committee chairperson worked together to celebrate throughout the year. May 29 was the final culminating activity with the schoolwide assembly and carnival where all
students participated in ten year writing projects of what is their favorite memories of North Star, and what are their predictions for life ten years from now. The time capsule was built and donated by local Bluffdale family Nate and Natalie Hall, whose children attend North Star Academy ,and all of the essays, along with our current yearbook, were placed inside. North Star invited back the kindergarten teachers who opened up the school 10 years ago to speak to their now middle school students. The 9th graders were thrilled to see and hear how much these teachers, Stephanie Proud and Jamie Maio, still cared and remembered them. l
North Star Academy, a top performing school in Utah, recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary.
Herriman Student Achieves Perfection On ACT By Aimee L. Cook
erriman High student Tanner Hart achieved a huge personal accomplishment and made history with his perfect score of 36 on the ACT. Tanner is the first student from Herriman High School to achieve a perfect score and was also the only student in the school district to do so this year. The ACT is used by colleges to make admission and scholarship decisions. It measures math, English, science and reading knowledge. Students can take the exam more than one time, but only twice is recommended if needed. Studies show that more than two attempts does not adjust a student’s score much if at all. In 2014, Utah’s high school graduates scored an average of 20.8 on the ACT. Nationwide, a score of 18 to 23 indicates a student is college ready, well below the perfect score of 36, making a perfect score a great academic accomplishment. Tanner plans to attend BYU this fall on a full-tuition academic scholarship.

Water Polo Swamps Competition By Greg James
ou have been reading that book for weeks now, and every day you wish you could jump ahead and find out the ending. If the Herriman High School girls water polo team had known how their season was going to end, they may want to read that novel over and over again. The Mustangs won their first state championship in girls water polo on May 30, 12-11 over Brighton High School. “The girls’ season was amazing. They definitely earned the state championship and worked really hard. They had to come together as a team,” head coach Michael Goldhardt said. The Mustangs held a three-goal lead going into the third quarter. Brighton was able to take advantage of some mistakes to tie the game headed into the final minutes; sophomore Abi Jacketta scored the game-winning goal. “Abi is by far one of the best players in the state. She is short and fast and understands how to drive the ball into the cage. She has a great mind for the game,” Goldhardt said.

The girls water polo gathers for a group hug following their first state championship. Photo courtesy of Russ Scadden. They had three freshman try to fill the void: Alexis Wheeler, Dani Harper and Jacketta. Goldhardt feels this is a spot his team could improve. “Goalies not only need to be skilled but they also help organize the defense,” he said. Goldhardt and the coaching staff strived to make the team a sisterhood. Many times practices were cancelled for the team to gather to watch a movie, have dinner or play dodgeball. “We had some amazingly talented athletes, but if we were not a team we were not going to win games. Being a family was a catch phrase for us. We tried to create a fun atmosphere. We learned to trust each other in and out of the water,” Goldhardt said.

Steenblik and Green recently graduated and were the team’s captains; Goldhardt said their leadership was a big factor in the team’s success this season. Dailey led the team in scoring with 51 goals in the regular season; Jacketta scored 29 times. Scoring was one of the strengths of the team. They scored 20 or more goals three times and scored 23 goals twice, the highest goal tally in the state this season. The Mustangs lost all-American goalie Erin Smalley to graduation.

Youth Lacrosse Wins State Championship By Greg James
here are lots of firsts in life: the first day of school, your first love and the first time you drive a car. The fifth- and sixthgrade boys in the Herriman youth lacrosse program experienced the organization’s first state championship this month. The Division 1 Thunder Mustang lacrosse team defeated Park City 8-7 on June 5 for the division state championship. They closed out the season with only one loss and scored 104 goals in its 10 games, the most in the league.
“ Everyone knew they
were responsible for our success and getting to that championship game.” “Our season was great. We only lost one game and came back to beat them (Park City) in the championship game. These are amazing kids and we had great support from the parents. They brought cowbells and pom-poms for the championship game and it made the kids very excited,” Thunder Division head coach Kent Christensen said. The Mustangs jumped out to an early
The Herriman boys youth lacrosse team had a team of fifth graders bring home a state championship earlier this month. Photo courtesy of Kent Christensen three goal lead in the championship game. Then Park City scored four unanswered goals and held the lead for most of the second half. With three minutes remaining in the game, the Mustangs scored the game-winning goal to secure the victory. Winning games was not the only focus for the state champions. Their coaches focused on the acronym ROOTS to teach the players the importance of the game. The meaning of the team slogan is respect for rules, officials, opponents, teammates and self. “We wanted to make sure each kid learned more from the game. Everyone knew they were responsible for our success and getting to that championship game. They all did their part throughout the season and we earned the first Herriman youth championship,” Christensen said. Herriman boys lacrosse is for first graders through eighth and they play a spring and fall season. More information can be found at www.herrimanlacrosse.org. The number of players in the league has increased. “The league has outgrown the number of coaches we have,” Christensen noted. l

Hawkins Is Silverwolves New Head Coach By Greg James
he Twitter feed of the Riverton High football team (@ rivertonfb) is full of motivational references to a team that faces a change-filled season. A new head coach and the loss of several graduated seniors is enough for most teams to turn their heads in defeat, but it does not seem to be the case for the Silverwolves. It is still business as usual. Brent Hawkins takes over this season as head football coach of the Silverwolves; Mike Miller stepped down this
The Bluffdale Arts Council will present “Guys And Dolls” August 6-8 with a Saturday matinee at South Hills Middle School. Set against the color of New York City’s high lights and low life, “Guys And Dolls” is an entertaining fable of love, marriage and temperance on Damon Runyan’s Broadway. While Nathan Detroit (Tanner Garner), operator of a legendary floating crap game, evades marriage to Adelaide (Heather Winkler), his chorus girl fiancée of fourteen years, high rolling Sky Masterson (Nathan Curtis) revels in his reputation as a notorious gambler and womanizer. But when Nathan bets Sky that even he cannot sweep Miss Sarah Brown (Mattie Carter), the prim mission lass, off to Havana, everyone gets more than they bargained for. “Guys And Dolls” has been described as “the perfect musical.” With songs like, “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” “Luck Be a Lady Tonight,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Take Back Your Mink” and many more, it is no surprise. “This has been a wonderful musical to be involved with,” says director Laura Garner, “and the cast of over 60 young adults and teens has incredible enthusiasm and talent. It’s a show you don’t want to miss.”
spring. Hawkins has taught at Riverton High School for 14 years and has coached with the track team and football team for most of that time. He has two years varsity head coaching experience at West Jordan High School, including two playoff appearances. Hawkins takes over a program that has made 10 straight playoff appearances, including last season’s trip to the semifinals where they lost to Bingham 35-3. There only regular season loss last year was 35-18 to American Fork. Miller had coached the Silverwolves since 2004; he compiled 68 wins as head coach. Hawkins is the third head football coach in school history following Miller and Rick Bojak. “Miller and Hawk have their differences, but Coach Hawk has stepped right into the team and molded with us great,” senior linebacker Simeon Page said. The Silverwolves lost their starting quarterback, Korbyn Baucom, to graduation along with several of the core of running backs. Page will be returning for his senior season. He was selected first team all-state by the Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune along with Region 4 defensive MVP last season. Defensively they only allowed 20.7 points per game.
Other players in the show include Peter Johnson as Grandpa Arvide, Faith Lord as General Cartwright, Eric Peterson as Nicely Nicely, Luke Beckstrand as Benny, and additional gamblers Chris Updike, Daniel Schmit, Hyrum Barlow, Ian Wright, Frank Musser, Jacob Lord, John Barlow, Kaleb Sweet, Liam Tuttle, London Flynn, Luke Beckstrand, Nick Sorenson, Paul Wade, Tanner Ayre and Xander Hyde, with Jared Austin as Big Jule. Peter Johnson, Regina Farnworth and Alaina Stone are the choreographers, and Eric Peterson is directing the musical ensemble. As always, many thanks to the members of the Bluffdale Arts Board and Bluffdale City who play such an important part in making these productions happen. Curtain time is 7:30 evenings and 1:00 PM matinee at South Hills Middle School located at 13508 South 4000 West. The house opens a half hour before the show. Tickets
Brent Hawkins took over as the Silverwolves football head coach this spring. He is beginning his 14th season as a coach at the school and will continue to work with the team’s defense. Photos courtesy of dsandersonpics.com The Silverwolves consistently have a strong team running game. Last season graduated senior Cameron Christensen led the team in rushing with 1358 yards and 12 touchdowns. Gavin Slack returns for his senior year. He was selected as the Region 4 special teams player of the year last season. He converted 31 extra points and kicked six field goals as the team’s place kicker last season. “I have not seen any changes. Our program is really player driven. I feel like the boys have taken that to heart,” Slack said. The Silverwolves are scheduled to open their season August 21 at home against Skyview High from Logan. l

Riverton City Council By Sheldon B. Stewart Councilman District 1
ow that the candidates have all filed we will begin the election season. This time reminds me of the great opportunity it is to be a part of the public service of this community and in particular the community I grew up in. It’s my love and gratitude for what it was, what is has become, and where it is headed that continues to drive and motivate me to this day. The framework and structure of the community has changed and adapted with growth from the time when I was a kid to now. During this time our city has seen an influx of over 30,000 residents to our current population of just over 40,000. We, as a city, have faced many challenges that come with growth and we have weathered these challenges well. As a city we have been innovative in our thinking and how we have dealt with this growth. The city early on instituted and adopted plans that would set the tone for the future. These plans helped us to deal with the needs and issues of that time and to help to establish a look to the future. With those plans we have established a well-thoughtout infrastructure and management plan that accommodates and handles the transit through our city as well as addressing the needs of our community. As members of past, current, and future councils continue our attempt to look into the future and make decisions today that will benefit us in next 30, 40, 50, and even 100 years, we have to balance the demands and limitations that exist. As a city we have a number of exciting things that have happened during June. We opened the Main Park which serves as a
Chamber Membership Is Effective Business Strategy center for the city and facilitates economic growth for that area of our city. Also during June the city was able to confirm that we are now completely on Jordan Valley Water Conservancy water. During the coming months and the next year, the city will break ground for the announced CenterCal Project that will have a large economic impact in the western portion of our city. As a city these are all programs established to benefit our residents and attract business and individuals to our city. As the candidates in this next election come forth all residents that are registered to vote will receive a mail-in ballot. This will allow residents the time necessary to review and study the items on the ballot and then at their convenience mail their ballots back in. If individuals desire to vote in person Riverton has designated the Sandra N. Lloyd Community Center as a polling location. This structure not only reduces the cost for the city to administer and deal with future growth but also provides ample time for people to consider the candidates and issues before them. As councilmembers we are open to any feedback that you have and appreciate the confidence and support you place in us as your elected representatives. l

ver wonder why we have chambers of commerce and why a business would join one? The 2012 Shapiro Study sheds some light on this as they have found the following: chamber membership is effective business strategy. A national survey* of 2,000 adults reveals that being active in a local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy because two-thirds of consumers believe that such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about their customers, and are involved in the community. If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber (e.g., is a chamber board member), consumers are 10% more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition. Chambers have a major impact on small businesses. Small businesses represent the largest segment of most local chamber membership rolls, and the study indicates that chamber membership has consistent and powerful benefits for small business members. If respondents know that a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys: • a 49% increase in its consumer favorability rating • a 73% increase in consumer awareness
• a 68% increase in its local reputation • an 80% increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future. Check out the Southwest Valley Chamber and patronize its members. Support those who support your businesses and community. l * The study was conducted by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm. It was commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), in cooperation with the Western Association of Chamber Executives. The study was sponsored by Insperity, a Houston-based company that provides human resources and other business services to more than 100,000 businesses nationwide.

Save Time And Money With New Shopping App By Rachel Hall
great deal is hard to find, especially when life gets busy. Angela Ramirez, founder of snach.it, understands that time is valuable for everyone. That is why she created the new shopping app to put the right deal in the right hands at the right time. “I love to shop. I am a mother of two. I work and I am always on the go,” Ramirez said. Her morning routine of browsing through Facebook and Groupon, coupled with her expertise as a former merchandise manager, helped spur the idea for an app that would supply great deals without having to search through irrelevant items.
“I would find myself browsing through pages and pages under Groupon trying to find great fashionable items, but all I would find was toothpaste [and] granola bars,” she said. Daily deals will be available to the customer through the app, but timing is of essence. Each item is offered for thirty seconds during which the decision to snatch up the deal must be made. The only way to gain additional time to view an item is to share the deal. “I saw the need for an app that could present a customer every morning with a curated collection of items. We are taking the time urgency from Snapchat, the amazing deals from Groupon, and the social aspect from Facebook,” she said. Ramirez’s focus on the start up of snach.it aligns with her belief that mobile shopping is where the future lies, even for major retailers trying to simplify the customers’ experience. “With us, you will only get an app – no website. Therefore, the way the app is being built, it truly simplifies your shopping habits and with three clicks you can purchase an item of your choice,” she said. Companies such as RayBan, Beats, Nike, Safavieh, Cavalli, Michaels Kors, Skull Candy, Sterling Arts, Diesel, and Under Armour are already listed to offer deals with the new shopping app. For more information, visit http://snach.it. l
Angela Ramirez is the founder of the snach.it app, which is being developed to save customers time and money on things they want to purchase.

school diploma. Can we make this county a better place for children and families by investing in what works, by testing and retesting it and by holding ourselves to a higher standard? I believe the answer is yes.
“Parents as Teachers” to be our lead agency. The concept for Parents as Teachers was developed in Missouri in 1981, when educators there noted that helping parents embrace their important role as their child’s first and best teacher made a striking difference in the child’s development of learning skills.
outcomes compared to the general population. Low-income moms are 17 percent more likely to have a premature baby. About half of these low-income children score poorly as 3-yearolds on standard language development tests. Being at such a disadvantage so early in their lives makes is more likely they’ll continue in the cycle of poverty trapping their mothers—75 percent of whom don’t have a high
In April, we began a search for a nonprofit partner who would provide services to this specific population. The proposal we issued asked that our prospective partner should have an evidence-based track record, can provide services to both mothers and children, can provide educational employment services to mothers and has experience providing this service to similar groups. In July we selected
he county is now working on contract details with Parents as Teachers. Specifics will include a timeline and total number of participants to receive services. But rather than pay for a program, we will only pay for specific outcomes that are achieved. Those outcomes include: reductions in premature births, reductions in emergency room use, improvement in standard school readiness tests and an increase in the mother’s employment and income. In other words, this is our next Pay for Success project. Pay for Success is an innovative new tool to measurably improve outcomes for communities in need. It builds on public/private partnerships in a way that delivers more money, more quickly to address social needs, such as homelessness or criminal justice. Government often means well, but has a poor track record. Sometimes a program continues year after year, with no proven results. But with our emphasis
on the Pay for Success model, we’re attempting to change that in Salt Lake County. What we learned in 2013-2014 with our first-in-thenation Pay for Success support of high-quality preschool for low-income kids is that working in this different way is a game-changer. Private sector funding spurs innovation and selects for programs that achieve measurable results. Government bureaucracy is reduced because the nonprofit provider receives sufficient upfront funding to run the program and serve residents. Taxpayers benefit because government only pays if outcomes are met. Data and evidence are at the core of this model and we know for sure if a program isn’t working. Safeguarding taxpayer money is important. But the consequences of failing to measure the impact of our policies and programs go well beyond wasting scarce tax dollars. Every time a person participates in a program that doesn’t work, when he or she could have participated in one that does—that represents a human cost. We can and we will do better. l

Me and My Shadow By Peri Kinder
n the morning of my second birthday, my sister, Jenny, was born and destroyed my life forever. Instead of my parents fawning over me with glitter and ponies, they were in the hospital, snuggling with this red-faced creature called a “sister” like she was the greatest thing since chocolatecovered Twinkies. At 2, I wasn’t even sure what a “sister” was, but I knew it wasn’t anything good. Once I realized she would be sticking around for a while, I decided to punish my mom and dad for trying to replace me with this whining little monster. Was I not enough? Did they think they should start over with a new daughter? Each year in July, when our birthday rolled around, I made sure my mom knew I was not going to share a cake with Jenny, and I was not going to share a birthday party, and I was going to act like an inconsolable selfish brat until I became a teenager. Then I’d get really bad. Instead of slapping me and telling me to calm the hell down, my mom made two birthday cakes, planned two parties (inviting many of the same kids) and sewed two dresses that could not match. She was patience personified. And she cried a lot. Not only did Jenny steal my birthday, but she was so cute that she got away with EVERYTHING and found a way to get me in trouble for stuff I DID NOT DO. Well, sometimes I did. Okay, usually I did. I learned that a little sister is like having a rash. No matter
how much you scratch it and claw at it, it just never goes away. If I tried sneaking off to my friend’s house, I’d hear, “Pe-RI! Jenny wants to go, too.” If I was playing with my doll and didn’t want to share, I’d hear, “Peri Lynn! You let Jenny play with you.” Then Jenny would cut my doll’s hair and I’d get in trouble for screaming. And punching.

Once, after being forced to take my sister to the field with me to play, I cut my hand on some barbed wire while climbing into the swamp I wasn’t allowed to enter. Jenny was frantic with worry, both because I was trespassing and because I probably had tetanus. “I’m gonna tell mom,” she said, stupidly. “If you do, I’ll never play with you again.” She kept the secret for one day, then I heard her crying to mom, “I don’t want Peri to die. She cut her hand on a fence and she’s gonna die.” Needless to say, I didn’t die. But I made sure Jenny paid for her tattletelling concern for my life. She was a constant companion. I had to walk with her to school, play with her on weekends and share a bedroom. We’d lie in our bunk beds at night and create imaginary ice cream sundaes for each other. She would give me mint chocolate chip ice cream with hot fudge topping and extra cherries. I’d give her mud-flavored ice cream with mayonnaise. Now, several decades later, I reluctantly admit that sisters are kind of cool. Thanks to my parents’ indifference to my opinion, I ended up with three sisters—and a brother who is still undergoing electroshock therapy to counteract being raised with four sisters. Every year on our birthday, I apologize to Jenny and let her know I forgive her for ruining my childhood. I grudgingly confess my life would be bleaker without her. But I still get my own cake. l

5 TIPS FOR HOSTING A SPECTACULAR YARD SALE By Joani Taylor It’s summertime and that means yard sales. For some this means hitting the road looking for great bargains; for those on the other side of the coin, hosting a sale is the fun. I’ve hosted many great yard sales: my last one bagged me over $1,000. Here’s some tips I’ve learned along the way for making your sale a success.
#1 Make a plan A great yard sale doesn’t happen overnight. It takes careful pre-planning and organizing. A few weeks before your sale scour the house from top to bottom and clear out the clutter. Decide if you will be selling any large furniture items and price them. Plan to take a couple of vacation days to price and organize your items. It’s also a great idea to team up with other neighbors, family or friends. It makes your sale more fun and allows you to have more items. #2 Store up your clutter throughout the year Create a corner of the house where you can store your yard sale goods. When I find items I think are worth selling, I stash them away in a guest room closet, but under the stairs or in a corner of the garage also works. Price the items as you put them in boxes. By the time yard sale weather hits, you’ll have a lot of your stuff ready to go. #3 Advertise Spreading the word about your sale is likely going to be the number-one factor in how well your sale does.

I have never had a successful yard sale that I did not advertise somewhere in the media. Most successful for me has been in the newspaper. Craigslist is also a great resource. It’s free to advertise and you can post a preview of items you have. The evening before or the morning of your sale, put out brightly colored signs along the main roads that lead into your neighborhood pointing the way. Make sure to take them down when finished. #4 - Set up your shop and price things to sell Make sure you have enough tables and blankets to display your items. Set up shop as organized as you can. Don’t make up prices on the spot. Instead invest a couple of dollars for some stickers or use blue painter’s tape and price things clearly. When pricing your items, price them to sell cheap. It’s better to under- price than to not sell items because you expected to get too much. People want to know how much you want without asking. Some people may be too shy to ask for a price or you may be busy helping someone else. Having clear prices makes it less likely you’ll lose a sale and get a few more nickels for each item with less haggling and walkaways.
Mark items down on the last day or the last few hours. You might say everything is 50% off just before you’re ready to call it quits. We’ve also left any unsold items that we planned to haul away out and marked as free for any stragglers.
#5 - Remember the lemonade and treats This is a great time to teach the kids some life skills and give them a way to earn some money too. Have them set up a refreshment stand with soda and candy or cookies and lemonade. With a little work and preplanning you can earn some extra money to use for some summer fun.
