New ‘Push to Survive’ Program Helping Save Lives By Jessica Thompson

T

here are nearly 300,000 people who experience cardiac arrest each year, with 92% of these people not surviving. If a bystander administers CPR within two minutes, 50% of these victims can survive. How can you become that bystander that saves a life? In the month of August, Unified Fire Authority and Salt Lake City Fire Department hosted a free public education event, called Push to Survive, to help teach local community members a new technique on the traditional CPR. “We started looking at the national trends for survival rates for cardiac arrest, along with the way we respond to those calls, and decided we needed to start a campaign to help community members learn more about the part they play in saving lives,” EJ Hinterman, the Unified Fire Authority member over the event, said. Instead of the traditional four-hour CPR

class and written test, this new CPR training teaches the same style of CPR resuscitations but focuses on a fast, two-step assessment: and does it within 10 minutes. Students watched a 10 minute video produced in-house by the fire department. As students followed along, they performed what they learned on a mannequin. The video explained the background of CPR, as well as focusing on the most important aspect of CPR: chest compressions. “This new program is boiled down to the most important information and has taken away the information that scared people into inaction. This new program helps them to become confident, letting them know what to do and that they can do it. The people who take this CPR course leave more confident, which leads to higher success rates,” Hinterman said. At the Push To Survive event, students

learned how they can help save a life by doing what they can before USPD can respond to the their call. This program has made it possible to also learn these techniques at home, by watching the same CPR training video online and practicing on a couch cushion. Knowledgeable community members are the ones that make the difference in a person surviving or not. If nothing is done to help an individual undergoing cardiac arrest within

the 7-8 minutes between a 911 call and help arriving, the survival rates are very low. “Everything depends on the type of care they receive before we arrive. We teach that the only wrong way to perform CPR is by doing nothing. We want to empower people to take initiative and give that person every

chance of survival,” Hinterman said. This event has already seen success from the techniques taught within those 10 minutes. This campaign also teaches police officers, as well as community members, the same style of resuscitation and beginning actions to take if the individual is unconscious or not breathing normally. Firefighters taught the USPD through their video about these techniques. One police officer who received the training was on duty when he was waved down because someone had collapsed. “He employed the new system we taught him and that person survived. We are already seeing success rates from this program,” Hinterman said. l

Taylorsville Teen Takes Fourth Place in Tai Kwon Do World Championships in Korea By Jessica Thompson

Y

ou could say Janiry Mora’s life has become a lot like the hit movie “The Karate Kid.” In this 1980s classic, the lead character, Daniel, works hard to overcome opposition through dedication, training and perseverance. In the end, Daniel comes out on top. Two main differences between this film and Janiry’s story, however, are that she is a first-degree black belt in Tai Kwon Do and her story is real. Janiry, a 16-year-old from Taylorsville, has been doing Tai Kwon Do for seven years. When it comes to preparing for tournaments, she conditions for seven hours a day and runs five miles. “Since I was little, I loved everything about the martial arts, from the colored belts to kicking. It feels great to be a part of such a unique sport that not a lot of people do,” said Janiry. In May of 2015, she participated in an international tournament in California. If she won first place, she could qualify to attend the Tai Kwon Do World Championships. Last year, at this same tournament, Janiry placed second, being inches away from participating in her dream of fighting in Korea. This year, she was determined to qualify for the World Championships. “With Tai Kwon Do you need to have a lot of determination and discipline. I have told myself I’m not allowed to think ‘I can’t do this.’ Instead I just tell myself to work hard and hopefully I will be able to do it later,” she said. With this attitude of hard work and perseverance, Janiry placed first in her age and weight division and qualified to represent the USA at the June 2015 Tai Kwon Do World Championships in Korea. “It felt really good to qualify for the championships, and I was very excited to compete with people from around the world,” she said. Janiry went to Korea about a month before the championships to condition and train with the other Tai Kwon Do USA representatives. When the day came to compete, she was nervous. “Before a match, when I can see my opponent getting ready and

Janiry Mora, a first-degree black belt, participated in the Tai Kwon Do World Championships in Korea. Here is the opening flag ceremony at the beginning of the tournament in Chuncheon, Korea. Photo courtesy of Janiry Mora I am waiting my turn, I get super nervous. I start thinking I am not as good as she is, which makes me scared to fight; but once I am fighting with her, I forget everything and just go for it and do my best. It’s a great adrenaline rush,” she said. Janiry performed though the nerves and it paid off. Out of participants from 12 different countries, she received fourth place in her individual weight, age and belt color division. Going to the semifinals was very important to her because, with this being her first World Championship tournament, she didn’t think she would get very far in the competition. Not receiving a medal saddened Janiry until the next day when she and her USA team took third place overall in the championships. Hard work, along with the success of her team members, made it possible for Janiry to take home a medal from Korea. “Getting fourth and third place at the World Championships felt really good and rewarding,” she said. Janiry’s mother, Carmen Mora, is proud of her daughter’s accomplishments. “I am very happy and grateful that all the sacrifices Janiry has made and all the sacrifices the family has made have all been worth it so far,” Mora said. Janiry’s example of hard work and dedication is a great example for other youth who want to follow their dreams. “Never give up. It can be hard at first, but keep pushing at it because once you make it, everything is worth it,” she said. l

U.S. News Includes Four Intermountain Hospitals in 2015 Ranking of Utah’s Best Hospitals

our of the top five hospitals in U.S. News & World Report’s new ranking of the best hospitals in Utah are Intermountain Healthcare facilities, including Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, which is ranked No. 1 for 2015. Intermountain Medical Center tied for the No. 1 ranking in Utah with University of Utah Hospital. U.S. News completed its top five list of Utah’s best hospitals with Intermountain’s LDS Hospital, McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, and Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, which all tied for third place. “We’re pleased that our hospitals have been recognized by U.S. News for the outstanding care we provide to our patients,” David Grauer, administrator of Intermountain Medical Center, said. “Throughout Intermountain Healthcare, we have an incredible team of physicians, employees, and volunteers who are passionate about delivering the highest possible quality of care and who are providing extraordinary service day in and day out. We’re honored their great work is being recognized in what is traditionally the nation’s most prestigious annual hospital scorecard,” Grauer said. Intermountain Medical Center, Utah’s largest and busiest hospital, was deemed “high performing” by U.S. News in three specialties: pulmonology, nephrology and ear, nose

and throat. Additionally, Intermountain Medical Center was ranked “high performing” in three treatment areas the magazine defines as “common care” specialties: heart failure, heart bypass surgery and COPD. U.S. News ranked Intermountain’s LDS Hospital “high performing” in three treatment areas: cancer care, orthopedics and pulmonology. McKay-Dee Hospital was “high performing” in three common care treatment areas: heart bypass surgery, heart failure and knee replacement. Utah Valley Regional Medical Center was also “high performing” in three common care treatment areas: heart bypass surgery, heart failure and hip replacement. Last month Intermountain’s Primary Children’s Hospital

was ranked in seven pediatric specialties and was named one of the “Best Children’s Hospitals in America” in the magazine’s annual listing of the nation’s pediatric hospitals. Intermountain Medical Center opened in 2007 and serves as the flagship hospital for the nationally-respected Intermountain Healthcare system. Intermountain Medical Center is one of two adult Level I trauma centers in Utah and serves patients throughout the Intermountain West. It’s home to the nationally-recognized Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute and is one of the most technologically advanced and patient-friendly hospitals in America. The U.S. News rankings are based on a hospital’s reputation (as measured by a survey of medical specialists), outcomes, volumes, patient engagement ratings and other measures related to patient care, including data collected by the federal government. U.S. News’ physician surveys measure a hospital’s reputation by asking physicians across the country where they’d want their family members to be served if they needed care. U.S. News first began publishing hospital rankings in 1990 as part of an expanding group of consumer advice reports. Over the past 26 years, the Best Hospitals rankings have helped guide millions of patients and their families to high-quality hospital care when they need it most. l

esert Star Playhouse, the theater that’s built a reputation for producing laugh out loud, family-friendly musical comedies, continues its 2015 season with a comedic take on all things nerdy in the pursuit of fulfilling a home teaching assignment in “Star Wards These Are Not the Elders You’re Looking For!”. Elder Kirtland and Elder Young are just trying to get their home teaching done for the month. While visiting with Doc, the duo discover he’s created a time machine to make genealogy easier. But when the elders start messing around with the family history helper, they get swept back to a time long ago and to a galaxy, far, far away! In trying to return to their own time, the elders intercept a distress call from Princess Alibama who has been captured by the evil Dark Knight and Empress Saltine. Eager to be of service, the elders enlist the help of the beautiful but tough space farmer, Raygun and Juan Cholo, a cool shoot-first-ask-questions-later smuggler. Will the eccentric group of heroes rescue the princess before she reveals the location of the rebel base? Will the elders make it back to their own time?

Salt Lake County Moving Forward to Attract, Retain Conventions

R

ecently, I joined leaders from Visit Salt Lake and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development for an exciting announcement: organizers for Outdoor Retailer are extending their contracts with the Salt Palace Convention Center through 2018. This is the largest summer and winter outdoor gear, apparel, accessories and technology tradeshow in the country. Outdoor Retailer has been here since 1996, except for 2002 when we hosted the Winter Olympics. Over time the winter and summer markets have grown to be the largest event hosted by the Salt Palace, with more than 6,000 specialty retailer attendees and exhibitors, drawing 15,000 additional visitors. They fill our hotels and restaurants, rent cars and go shopping during their stay. The total economic impact to us is approximately $45 million annually. That boost to our budgets represents money that does not have to come from local residents and taxpayers, but rather represents a “bonus” for our bottom line. Outdoor Retailer has become so successful that it has outgrown the exhibit and

local life meeting space available. We have been able to get creative by putting up large tents next to the Salt Palace, and to encourage hotels to move other proposed events around on the calendar to free up lodging. I was encouraged that when Outdoor Retailer surveyed its members about whether to stay in Salt Lake or look elsewhere, over two-thirds said they preferred to keep the show here. Ultimately, the solution is to have more public meeting space and more hotel rooms. That’s why I’ve been pushing hard to find a private company to build a convention head-

quarters hotel adjacent to the Salt Palace, and include 100,000 square feet of additional meeting space. In mid-August, I was forced to discontinue negotiations with Omni, which had responded to our hotel bid request last year, because the company asked for too much by way of public participation. Salt Lake County needs and wants a private hotel, but not at any cost. My job is to negotiate a fair deal with a private sector partner—fair to the company and fair to taxpayers. Now that Outdoor Retailer has announced dates in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for both the winter

and summer markets, I’ll redouble my efforts to secure a private sector partner. Soon, the county will have another request for bids out on the street. I believe we’ll have a private partner selected and a plan in the works within months. We know that having additional public meeting space as well as hundreds of rooms adjacent to the Salt Palace will be important not only to Outdoor Retailer, but to other prospective conventions who have told us that’s the only thing Salt Lake is missing to get their business. For a lot of us here in Utah, getting outdoors isn’t just a pastime, it’s a way of life. It’s how we spend time with our friends and families and –increasingly—it’s how we make a living, as employees and business owners of outdoor equipment and supplies, and as a tourist destination. It’s a unique package as we promote Utah to convention planners and to visitors, as well as becoming an important sector of our economic growth and prosperity. l

recently had the pleasure of attending “Night Out Against Crime” here at Taylorsville City Hall. This annual event hosted and organized by the Taylorsville Public Safety Committee offers something for everyone. Those in attendance enjoyed the Unified Police Department Mobile Command Center, K-9 Demonstration, Mounted Posse, and Motorcycles. It was wonderful to see the United Fire Authority Trucks and Equipment. Information was available on topics such as Fire Safety, Fingerprinting, Crime Prevention and Child Seat Inspections. The Climbing Wall provided by the National Guard was popular with everyone. Scout troops were able to work on merit badges in safety, crime prevention and emergency preparedness in the City of Taylorsville Emergency Management

Trailer. Chick-fil-A also generously provided food for attendees of this event. It was great to see the interaction of so many community members with the firefighters and law enforcement officers who work right here in Taylorsville. I have so much appreciation for the men and women who work extremely hard and risk their lives every day to keep our city, community and neighborhoods safe. Thank you to all that attended this event and to the Public Safety Committee for their hard work. l

Employee of the Month for May 2015 – Jennie Peterson

Chief Wyant

Jennie Peterson has been a tremendous addition to the civilian staff at the Taylorsville Precinct. Jennie is the initial point of contact with citizens who visit the precinct and always greets the public in a professional manner. Since coming to the UPD Taylorsville Precinct as the prosecutor liaison and front lobby receptionist Jennie has cemented herself as an irreplaceable asset to both UPD and the City of Taylorsville. Jennie volunteered to assist officers during Taylorsville Dayzz with lost children and at a DUI checkpoint so she could learn how to gather the statistics. She has an incredible work ethic and attitude. She consistently volunteers to help with projects outside of her job description.

Left to right: UPD Taylorsville Precinct Chief Tracy Wyant, Officer Mandy Gilbert, Officer Chelsea Winslow, Jennie Peterson and Brandy Stephens

Officer of the Month for June 2015 – Officer Chelsea Winslow and Officer Mandi Gilbert Officers Winslow and Gilbert responded to a suicidal threats call. Upon arrival, they could hear a car running inside a closed garage. Fearing the suicidal person was facing imminent death, Chelsea and Mani forced entry and immediately discovered the victim lying down on the backseat of the car. After the victim failed to respond to verbal commands, Officer Winslow breached the car window with the assistance of Officer Gilbert and removed the victim. Officers Winslow and Gilbert were both treated for carbon monoxide exposure and lacerations received from the broken glass. Due to the heroic actions of both Officers, the victim made a full recovery. They showed bravery and commitment to life in a dangerous and volatile situation.

Pedestrian Safety Tips By Detective Scott Lloyd

DROP OFF LOCATION: At the front of Taylorsville City Hall 2600 West Taylorsville Blvd. Taylorsville, Utah 84129

Teach kids at an early age to look left, right and left again before crossing the street. Then remind them to continue looking while crossing by keeping their heads up and looking around until safely across. It’s always best to walk on sidewalks or paths and cross at street corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Teach kids to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. Children under 10 need to cross the street with an adult. Every child is different, but developmentally, most kids are unable to judge the speed and distance of oncoming cars until age 10. Encourage kids to be especially alert

for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach kids not to run or dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. If kids are walking when it’s dark out, teach them to be especially alert and make sure they are visible to drivers. Have them wear light- or brightly colored clothing and reflective gear. Teach kids to put phones, headphones and devices down when crossing the street. It is particularly important to reinforce the message with teenagers. Pull headphones down or turn off the volume before crossing the street. Be aware of others who may be distracted and speak up when you see someone who is in danger. If kids need to use a cell phone, teach them to stop walking and find a safe area to talk.

Where did the summer go? The kids are back in School and the days are getting shorter. Labor Day reminds us to check the Suggested Watering Guide for our lawns and start preparing for next year’s growing season. Remember that lawns do not live on water alone. Consider the following to promote a healthy and beautiful lawn this fall and through the winter: • Apply a high nitrogen/winterizing fertilizer to promote root growth and provide needed energy until spring. • Aerating the lawn allows air and water to enter the soil encouraging root growth. • Following the Suggested Watering Guide If you have any questions regarding this article please contact Dan McDougal, Communications Manager, at Taylorsville-Bennion Improvement District: 801-968-9081 / danmcdougal@tbid.org or visit our website at www.tbid.org

Jacque’s Preschool Awarded by Daughters of the American Revolution By Jessica Thompson

J

acque Jacobs has taught close to 4,000 preschool children over the last 37 years. She first started teaching in her home and is now the director of Jacque’s Preschool in Salt Lake City. Her program is catered to help each child grow academically and socially. “I feel it is an honor to be their first school teacher and give them an extra advantage socially and academically by teaching them about their country, its history and our responsibility,” Jacobs said. Teaching her preschool children about their country and its history is what caught the attention of the Princess Timpanogos Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This organization gave Jacobs their Americanism Award because of her preschool’s remarkable teaching of patriotism to young children and her recognition of veterans in the community. Jacque’s Preschool curriculum includes many interactive, patriotic lessons and activities for the children. Each student recites the Pledge of Allegiance every school day. They learn patriotic songs and participate in activities that teach important patriotic lessons. For example, the preschool holds “Election Day” when the

“This was an unexpected award

that humbled me and I will always treasure it, because I love America and our Constitution.” children get to vote on age-appropriate matters. The preschool also recognizes veterans at its annual graduation program. “I cannot participate in the military abroad or hold a high office, so I decided to take a stand and help out veterans and my country by teaching the children. Patriotism teaches children that we belong to a great country. We need to help make our lives and our country better each day to enjoy our freedoms,” Jacobs said. On May 22, 2015, members of the Princess Timpanogos Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Dominquez Escalante, Judy Mayfield and Shirley Nelson, presented the award to Jacobs and her staff at the preschool. “This was an unexpected award that humbled me and I will always treasure it, because I love America and our Constitution.

Photo courtesy of Jacque Jacobs We are the only preschool known to receive such a prestigious award from the Daughters of the American Revolution,” Jacobs said. Jacque’s Preschool is a wonderful place for children to learn about the importance of their country in a comfortable and social

environment. “Education, patriotism and social skills help a child to become more prepared to face challenges in life. We at Jacque’s Preschool want all young children to be their best,” Jacobs said. l

Preparing for a Future of Learning at Taylorsville High School

A

VID (Advancement Via Independent Determination) is a college readiness program designed to help high school students prepare for college. Three years ago, Taylorsville High School received funding for AVID from Salt Lake Community College’s “Gear Up” grant initiative. Now entering the fourth year of the program, AVID teacher Jennifer Johnson credits AVID for creating a “college readiness atmosphere” in the school. After researching the program, Johnson remembers thinking, “This program was made for me to teach; I love working with kids that don’t always see what they are capable of.” Johnson believes AVID gives students the support and structure necessary to help students realize, “I can do this,” when preparing for college. “I believe in this passionately; I became a teacher to teach programs like this,” she said. Bryan Good first started working in the AVID program at Granite High School, one of the first AVID programs in the state of Utah. After transferring to Taylorsville High, Good continued to use the strategies promoted by AVID in his regular education classes. He now teaches AVID classes with Johnson and shares her passion for the program. “I became a teacher to give kids a better life and help them see a path they might not have taken before. It’s amazing to help kids realize their potential and achieve things they never dreamed they could achieve before,” he said. AVID students enroll in an elective grade-level class

where they meet with Johnson and Good to develop a “path of rigor” for their academic classes. “We really work hard as a team to determine ‘What is rigor?’ for each individual student,” Johnson said. AVID students also receive help from their counselors and non-AVID teachers. Taylorville’s math teachers provide daily math tutoring, and AVID students use the Monday morning late-start schedule to receive additional tutoring or work on homework. In the class itself, Good and Johnson teach learning strategies using AVID’s WICOR model to strengthen student skills in writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading. Good considers WICOR skills “essential in surviving those harder classes and creating a college-ready student. This isn’t remediation tutoring; this program helps students develop deeper understanding of the things they are learning.” When Johnson talks to parents about enrolling their student in the AVID program, she starts by asking, “Do you want your student to go to college?” Johnson believes most parents want to support their child in pursuing higher education, but recognizes the challenges, especially for first-generation college students. “Parents want to help their students succeed but don’t understand the process for getting into college: the application, financial aid, going on college tours,” she said. Johnson believes AVID can help students and families prepare for college by teaching students to recognize “what

By Stephanie Lauritzen

kind of grades they need, how to write an essay, or solve a math problem. Our goal in AVID is to use the support inside the building to help students, so that when they graduate and step into college classes next fall, they aren’t blown away.” Like Good, Johnson does not see AVID as a “remedial” program. “This is for students who can go to college. This is not for students who are failing every class and need a magic pill.” However, Johnson also believes, “AVID is for everyone. Sometimes people think, ‘Oh, I need to be a smart kid, or an AP kid.’ No, anybody can be an AVID student.” Good agrees. “AVID targets the middle demographic. We want those kids that are doing okay, but could do better.” Good believes that the key to a successful AVID student lies in student choice. “It can’t be the parent forcing them to be here … The student has to be invested as well,” he said. Johnson encourages parents to support their AVID student by engaging them in conversations about their learning. “Ask them, ‘What did you do in English class today? What did you learn about in history today?’” Johnson and Good work together to create a progressive program that helps students build on learning skills throughout their high school career. Good hopes that “as students take more rigorous classes, they’ll ask, ‘How can I take the skills I learned in AVID and apply it?’ We want our students to see how AVID can help them in their other classes.” Johnson wants future AVID students to know, “You’re going to work your butt off, and this is going to be hard … But by senior year, you’ll be a family.” Good agrees. “At the end of the day, kids get a lot more from structure and high expectations.” l

THREE WAYS TO SAVE MONEY ON DINNER AND A MOVIE By Joani Taylor

I

t’s Friday. The office is restless and your friend in the cubicle next to you has been talking endlessly about their plans for the weekend. You can’t help but feel a little envy. It’s been ages since the two of you have had a real date; maybe you could go this weekend. Alas, you are snapped back into reality; your wallet is thin, the water heater went out last month and you need to come up with the cash for the kids’ soccer uniforms. It looks like it’s another weekend of cleaning toilets and catching up on laundry and yard work. Spending quality time as a couple can become difficult and seem like an unnecessary expense as life becomes hectic with kids. However, couples that spend time focusing on one another can improve their relationship, resolve communication issues and increase intimacy. It also provides the kids with a good blueprint by showing them the importance of investing time in a relationship. There are hundreds of creative date night ideas on the Utah-based website DatingDivas.com that can inspire a fun idea for a night out. But, what if you just want a good ole’ fashioned dinner and movie? Here are three money saving ideas you might not have thought of: #1 - Shopkick: Shopkick is a mobile app that awards users points for walking into stores and performing various other actions. There are many stores that participate, like JC Penney, Best Buy, Macy’s and even home improvement stores and warehouse clubs. Often the stores are all in a single mall

or shopping center, making it easy to walk from store to store. Simply download the app and walk in the door of the participating stores. After doing so, you’ll be awarded points called “kicks.” The kicks add up and convert to free gift cards for places such as Target, Lowe’s and even Fandango and The Cheesecake Factory. Did someone say free Cheesecake Factory and a movie? Users typically get $5 for every 1250 kicks, and they add up fast. Plus, as a sweet little bonus, Friday happens to be bonus kicks day, where you get 100 kicks for walk-ins, as opposed to 35-50 on other days of the week.

Some stores give even more points for scanning specific items in the store. Hubby and I can often be found on Shopkick dates and routinely bump into others doing the same. Make sure you both have the app to double your bonus. More info at Shopkick.com. #2 - Tuesday Date Night: Plan your date on Tuesday. Okay, it may seem a little out of the ordinary, but there’s a reason. On Tuesdays, Megaplex Theatres offers $5 movies. Plus, many restaurants with email clubs run special bargains for their subscribers during the week. Mimi’s, for example, is well known for sending out “buy 1 meal get 1 free” coupons to email subscribers during the week. As a bonus, many of these also send out additional freebie meals for your birthday. Visit Coupons4Utah.com/emailrestaurant for a huge list of restaurants with email rewards. #3 - Dinner and Movie at Home: Who said dinner and a movie has to be on the go? How about getting your little monkeys to bed first and having dinner and a movie at home. Make it fun by cooking together. Later, put out a picnic blanket or snuggle on the couch with your dollar store, theater-style popcorn cups. While you’re there, pick up theater candy for $1, too. You’ll also want to make sure you have joined Redbox’s text club. They often send text club members codes for free movies. You can subscribe by texting MOVIENIGHT to 727272 and then replying with “Y” to confirm. Now the only obstacle is agreeing on what to watch!
