NEW DECADE BEGINS

2019 in review RAY LAFOLLETTE

The Pyramid

MT. PLEASANT—With the start of the New Year 2020, take a walk down memory lane and consider how we all got here during the past year. Crime In January, the Sanpete County Sheriff’s Office announced that a large crime ring had been uncovered north of Ephraim and included storage units in the Gunnison area. Several arrests were made in the case. Victims in the case spanned numerous jurisdictions including Sevier County, Richfield, Salina, Gunnison, Ephraim, Mt. Pleasant and Sanpete County. On Jan. 18, Raul Vidrio, who was charged with aggravated murder in the death of 22-year-old Wesley Nay after investigators found his body buried in a grassy meadow near Indianola in October 2016, pleaded not guilty to reportedly killing Nay and burning his remains. Then in May, Vidrio filed guilty pleas in Fourth District Court to murder, a first-degree felony; obstructing justice, a second-degree felony; and abuse of a dead body, a third-degree felony. On May 23, during Vidrio’s sentencing, Judge James Taylor ordered the 22-year-old to serve at least 15 years to life for murder, a first-degree felony. “This particular case is an unusually heinous killing,” Taylor said. “It was calculated, it was planned and it involved him (the victim, Nay) digging his own grave. It involved murdering him in a heinous and callous way.” Vidrio will also serve one-to-15 years for a second-degree felony of obstruction of justice and zero-to-five years for a third-degree felony of desecration of a body. Taylor ordered each sentence to run consecutively. In mid-May, two juvenile boys who ran away from the Pine Ridge Behavioral Health youth home located in Fairview allegedly stole a silver 2008 Chrysler Sebring sedan during the night from the home of Jesse Roberts, Fairview. As a warning to county residents, Sanpete County Detective Derick Taysom pointed out that, “It is not uncommon for the juveniles to steal a vehicle when they run away. If we (Sanpete County Sheriff’s Office) have had a runaway report and a vehicle is missing the next day, the juveniles are always our #1 suspect.” On Aug. 8, in ongoing litigation with Mt. Pleasant City, former Mt. Pleasant Mayor David Blackham through his attorney filed a civil complaint in Sixth District Court against the city of Mt. Pleasant, and against each city council member, individually, in order to obtain redress for their alleged wrongful actions. The Notice of Claim in the case stated that David Blackham is pursuing claims against the city of Mt. Pleasant, and against Dan Anderson, Justin Atkinson, Kevin Stallings, Heidi Kelso, and Keith Collier in their individual capacities based on causes of action for defamation, invasion of privacy/false light, invasion of privacy/publicization of private information, and intentional infliction of emotional

Mack Wilkey distress. This case is still ongoing. More recently, on Nov. 23, it was reported that a 10-year-old boy in a vehicle was hit by a bullet while traveling on U.S. 89 north of Mt. Pleasant. Since that initial report it has been revealed that it was a nine-year-old boy that was wounded. On Dec. 6, Sanpete County Attorney Kevin Daniels said that Camryn Summerhays had been charged with felony discharge of a firearm and misdemeanor reckless endangerment. Daniels also said that Summerhays didn’t intend to hit anyone but was negligent while shooting toward a highway in an area without a barrier to stop fired shots. Awards Mt. Pleasant City Power received two awards. In January, Mayor Dan Anderson and Power Superintendent Shane Ward accepted the UAMPS System Improvement Award presented for undertaking system upgrades, capital improvements and preventive maintenance measures to modernize facilities, improve system reliability, reduce losses, reduce outage times and improving power quality. Later in April, Ward accepted the award for Mt. Pleasant Power when it was designated as a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3). Last January, the Utah Board of Regents unanimously selected Bradley J. Cook to be the 17th president of Snow College. Cook was officially presented during inaugural ceremonies held Nov. 7. The Mt. Pleasant Historical Pioneer Association recognized Mack Wilkey, 89, and Marilyn Bagnall, 87, as the oldest male and female in attendance at the annual luncheon held March 16. Intermountain Sanpete Valley Hospital recognized Moroni Ambulance last January as the recipients of the hospital’s Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Extraordinary Save award. Then last April the hospital was named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

Jacobson was a remarkable teacher and was named as Fountain Green Elementary School’s 2018-2019 teacher of the year. The Moroni Veterans Park was dedicated during special ceremonies last Aug. 31. The monument highlights 689 veterans from the area who have served including the Blackhawk War. Wasatch Academy Head of School Joseph Loftin oversaw the dedication of a new engineering building located at 50 South State, Mt. Pleasant. The new engineering center is designed as a large industrial work space with a modular layout that is open by design. It includes state-of-the-art woodworking shop and maker space. Specific high-tech equipment including a laser cutter, a 3D printer, and a welders available for student use. In related news at Wasatch Academy, last October, Wasatch Academy announced that Head of School Joseph Loftin plans to retire after 35 years of service and the next Head of School will be James Matthew Culberson.

Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox August and honored for their commitment to excellence in the retail industry at the BrandSource National Convention and Expo at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas, TX. Sports Last January, North Sanpete High School (NSHS) Hawk swim team traveled to Emery High School for a region swim meet. During the meet, Junior Brigham Lewis was the standout of the group as he broke three school records and qualified for state. He took first place in the 100 Breast Stroke against 40 competitors. Lewis also set a new school record by beating the 200 Freestyle record by a whopping nine seconds. Again, Lewis, along with Alex Mower, Koby Smith, and Neil Briggs, broke the 200 Medley school record by three seconds. In February, North Sanpete High School’s (NSHS) Hawk Drill Team took to the floor at Utah Valley University in the 3A State Drill competition and the team took second place. The first-ever triathlon in Mt. Pleasant was hosted by Mt. Pleasant Aquatic Center last July for those who like to run, bike and swim. This fun and challenging event could be completed in one day or over a two-week period of time. The strongman competition held during Welsh Days last June in Wales, presented a new competitor, the first-ever female, who challenged all of the male strength and tradition of past events. Female, Rebecca Rowley, a professional power-lifter and lifting coach at Utah Iron, a powerlifting facility in Spanish Fork, was one of 16 competitors participating in the event. Although she did not win, she did earn more points than some of the men. Last October 10, North Sanpete Hawks football hosted rival school the Manti Templars for a highly anticipated game on the North Sanpete High School home field. It was the last home game of the season for the Hawks and North Sanpete came out victorious. The new Rating Percentage Index (RPI) ranking system implemented in 2019 by the Please see 2019, Page A6

As the New Year starts, I’ve been thinking about driving. I’ve been contemplating that I need to resolve to watch my speed better and to improve my driving manners. Many of you have heard that the Utah Highway Patrol has decided that they’re going to crack down on speeding. It’s kind of been an unwritten understanding that if a driver went 5 miles over the posted speed limit that there was very little chance that there would be a traffic stop or a citation issued for speeding. Many people have routinely set their cruise controls at a few miles over the limit knowing that there was no danger of being pulled over. Now: Not so fast all of you Utah “Mario Andretti’s” out there. (Yours truly included.) The UHP has announced that the speed limit as posted is, in fact, the speed limit. And furthermore, that speed limit is intended for perfect, sunny day, blue birds singing, and driving conditions. So when the sign says 80 MPH on I-15, it means just what it says. I had my cruise control set at 82 the other night coming back to Sanpete, a car passed me. It wasn’t going significantly faster than me – maybe 85? Within two minutes, a UHP cruiser, lights blazing, passed me and stopped the vehicle. By that experience, I’m guessing that the Highway Patrol’s “bite is going to be as bad as the bark.” So, therefore, my New Year’s driving resolution. Remember when driving into Utah and Salt Lake counties was a pretty calm, no hassle excursion? Me neither. Well, I do have some vague memories of how it used to be. There was a time when you could change lanes and not feel like you were risking your life every time you did it. Traffic is crazy up there. Like most of you, I have occasion to drive “up North” semi-regularly. Evidently there are some Sanpeters who are driving up there every workday. It’s been a while since I saw the statistics, but I believe there are between 200 and 300 workers in Sanpete County who commute to work into Salt Lake County. Unless things have changed, I gather that our own Spencer Cox, Lt. Governor of the state is one of the Sanpete commuters. Davis County has the most workers commuting to Salt Lake with 44,000+ and Utah County has nearly 32,000. Of course this is only relating to people who are going to Salt Lake County for work, and doesn’t count those going to Utah County or other areas. Most of these people are driving, so you can see why there is so much traffic on the freeways up there. When I drive anywhere, I notice that there are two kinds of drivers out there — everyone else and me. That’s one easy categorization. My late father-in-law put all drivers into two categories: Morons and Idiots. Anyone driving slower than him was a moron. Anyone driving faster than him was an idiot. “What does this moron think he’s doing poking along like a turtle? Look at that idiot! Where’s the fire?” In reality, one of the best ways of characterizing drivers is in these two groups: Courteous and Non-courteous. We all have lots of experience with both of

those groups. Utah drivers seem to have a reputation pinned on them by “out-of-staters” as being bad, discourteous drivers. Some people move here and say that they’ve never seen such lousy, impolite drivers. I personally believe that there are bad, discourteous drivers everywhere. I’ve done some driving in places like Boston, Massachusetts and that was pretty wild. I’ve been stalled in a VW Campmobile near the IRS building in Washington D.C. during rush hour at the end of a work week prior to a holiday weekend. That wasn’t a picnic. Every metro area in the country has its share of wacky drivers. In my experience, driving abroad is interesting too. Here are two examples: Traffic lights are just suggestions in places like Naples, Italy. People think you’re discourteous and crazy if you actually stop and wait at a red light. In Poland, on narrow, twoway highways with two lanes, it may seem impolite to begin passing a car in your lane when another car is oncoming in the other lane. But regardless of the rules, it’s culturally acceptable and everyone makes room for the seemingly suicidal driver of the passing car. I got used to it. And despite heart rates elevating with my passengers, and me, I even pulled out and made passes that way. The phrase “road rage” has become a normal part of our language. When people get so frustrated with road conditions, other drivers, or their own personal psychosis otherwise – they snap. These drivers then do something violent or socially offensive. Behaviors range from giving fellow travelers the famous one digit salute to pulling a gun and blasting away at their next lane neighbor. Some people will tailgate with their bright lights on to punish another driver who they believe did them wrong. Road rage in Sanpete takes on its own, more mild, form. We get hopping made if we can’t make a left turn onto Highway 89 within 15 seconds of stopping. We want to choke the farmer who never signals when he slows and turns down a lane. (“Everyone knows that’s where I turn. I go there all the time every day!”) We are annoyed when we hit the red light at one of the two traffic lights in the county. At one time I heard that UDOT was considering another light in Gunnison. Oh my! Potentially three lights in the county? We’re turning into Los Angeles! Some things about driving never change. Young people think that older people are awful drivers and older folks wonder if young people will ever slow down and learn to drive. Both, I suppose, are at least partially right. The State of Utah continues to remind us that driving is a privilege and not a right. I hope that we here in Sanpete will continue to enjoy our driving privileges without the hassles of our “up north” neighbors. Honk if you see me on Highway 89. I’ll squint and wonder who you are. Some people recognize everyone by their vehicles. I’m not one of those people. But, I do wave and nod to about everyone, regardless of whether they’re idiots or morons.

Public hours expand at SS offices, hiring staff BALTIMORE, MD — Commissioner of Social Security Andrew Saul has announced that starting on Jan. 8, 2020, Social Security offices nationwide will be open to the public on Wednesday afternoons. This change restores Wednesday public service hours that were last in place in late 2012. “I don’t want someone to come to our office at 2:30 p.m. on a Wednesday only to find our doors closed,” Commissioner Saul said. Currently, a field office is generally open to the public from 9 a.m. to Noon on Wednesdays. Beginning on Jan. 8, 2020, offices will remain open until 4 p.m. on

Wednesdays, with typical field office hours from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. In another move to improve service to the public, Commissioner Saul announced in his open letter to the public that the agency is hiring 1,100 front line employees to provide service on the agency’s National 800 Number and in its processing centers. The letter can be read online at www.ssa.gov/agency/ coss-message.html. The agency is currently bringing onboard 100 new processing center employees and approximately 500 new teleservice representatives for the 800 Number. An ad-

ditional 500 hires for the 800 Number will occur later in 2020. “Improving service is my top priority. Increasing full public service hours at our nationwide network of more than 1,200 field offices is the right thing to do and will provide additional access,” Commissioner Saul said. “The hiring of a thousand new employees to provide service through our National 800 Number and an additional 100 hires to process people’s Social Security benefits at our processing centers around the country are steps in the right direction in our mission to greatly improve the service we provide,” he said.

While the agency continues to improve both the access to and the experience with its services, it is important to note that most Social Security services do not require the public to take time to visit an office. People may create a my Social Security account, a personalized online service, at www.socialsecurity.gov/ myaccount. Through their personal my Social Security account, people can check personal information and conduct business with Social Security. If they

already receive Social Security benefits, they can start or change direct deposit online, and if they need proof of their benefits, they can print or download a current benefit verification letter from their account. People not yet receiving benefits can use their online account to get a personalized Social Security Statement, which provides earnings history information as well as estimates of future benefits. Currently, residents in 40 states and the District of

Columbia may request a replacement Social Security card online if they meet certain requirements. The portal also includes a retirement calculator and links to information about other online services, such as applications for retirement, disability and Medicare benefits. Many Social Security services are also conveniently available by dialing toll-free, 1-800-772-1213. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call Social Security’s TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.

Ralph (Gray Eagle) Bates is survived by his beloved wife, Patricia (Rusty) Bates, his sons, Robert and Damon and his daughter, Denise (Neven) Hannon. Ralph had 11 grandchildren 21 great-grandchildren, one great-grandchild and four fur babies. Ralph loved the outdoors. He love fishing hunting and spending time in the mountains with his wife and his fur babies. His passion was his Native American lineage and he celebrated his heritage with great pride. He was Southern Cherokee and Choctaw. During his time with his tribe, he was proudly appointed Nation Chief and represented his people in our nationʼs capitol to bring about great changes for future generations. Ralph was proud to be a pipe carrier and in his time he humbly used his gifts from the Creator to serve others in their time of need and was gifted with the highest honor from his peers, the Eagle Feather. Ralph entered the Navy at 17 years of age and proudly served his country with three tours in Vietnam. He finally decided after being shot down a third time he should leave the Navy before his luck ran out and went to work for them as a civil servant. He then went on to be one of the most sought after design engineers for the oil industry, which allowed him and his wife to travel the world for work. Ralph was devoted to the love of his life, Rusty, and was known for saying that nothing existed before her. He was a kind and generous man who was always willing to lend a hand to his neighbors.

2019 From A1

Utah High School Athletics Association, had Manti ranked as first in the state of 3A schools, with North Sanpete following close behind in fourth place. But because the Hawks beat the Manti Templars, the new RPI ranking placed North Sanpete High School as #1 in 3A Football. At that time the Hawk team had won seven games and lost only one game against the Juab Wasps. The Hawks pressed forward to compete in the regional play-offs then advanced to the Semi-finals on Nov. 9 against the Morgan Trojans. In 2018, the Hawks faced Morgan on the same field in the semi-finals and were able to defeat them and continue on into the state championship. North Sanpete hoped to repeat this success and take another crack at the state title; however, some controversial referee calls and an inability to score on Trojan defense resulted in a season ending loss for the Hawks. The Hawks finished the 2019 season with an impressive 10-2 record. Notable items Last January, 2019, two mystery horse statues that have been on display almost since the day the Mt. Pleasant Carnegie Library was dedicated were finally identified as being created by Gavin H. Jack. In April 1919, it was announced that the Seeley-Hinckley Auto Co., Mt. Pleasant, would build a new store on what was known as “the old Peel corner,” 100 West Main Street, with a grand opening held Sept. 27, 1919. The celebration festivities included dancing, refreshments and the picture show “Mutt and Jeff Capture the Kaiser.” Thus opened the first Dodge car dealership in Utah 100 years ago, last September. To see what a 1919 Dodge touring car looked like, the easiest way to see one in action is by watching the 1946 movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.” In the film, George Bailey, played by actor Jimmy Stewart, drives one. Last April, the Scott Sunderland family, Chester, were featured in a new series, “The American Farm”

on the History Channel. The Sunderland family was one-of-five hard-working families from across America filmed for a year for the series. Last May, in celebration of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad 150 years ago with the driving of the golden spike at Promontory, Utah, the public was encouraged to attend several celebrations held in Utah. In Mt. Pleasant, The Coffee Depot and Track 89 North, at 845 South Highway 89, had treats, souvenir treasures, including Spike 150 pins, mugs, and train whistles for kids. Celebrations were also held in Gunnison. Last April, Wasatch Academy celebrated the 144th anniversary of the founding of the academy. Annually, the Founders Day weekend brings together alumni and welcomes the current WA senior class into the alumni association. The final presentations of the Mormon Miracle Pageant took place last June. For the prior 52 years, Manti always came to life and presented a grand production full of wonder and excitement. But in October 2018, an official statement from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said that while local celebrations of culture and history may be appropriate, the Church now discourages larger productions such as pageants. Attendance to the last season run of the Mormon Miracle Pageant broke all-time records with an estimated 156,000 attendees during the eight nights of the pageant. The most attendees for a one-night presentation was on Friday, June 21, 2019, with a record 27,000 to 30,000 estimated people in attendance. Because of the many fires that took place in Utah during 2018, over 1 million pounds of seed from the Great Basin Research Center in Ephraim was used to help rehabilitate over 85,000 acres of damaged landscape. Unfortunately, it may take years to recover. The public needs to use care in their outdoor adventures and be aware of dangers to avoid. Last October, it was announced that the Sanpete Pantry Food Bank was in danger of closing and had been denied funding by the Sanpete

County Commission. According to the leadership at that time, the pantry was feeding more than 12,000 people yearly, 285 families a month and provided 450 six- to eightpound bags of food for elementary school children deemed at risk by their schools of going without food on the weekends. Then the first part of November, Dave and Lurlynn Potter, of Spring City, stepped in with much enthusiasm and a wealth of experience and knowledge to take over as co-directors of the Pantry. With the support of donors and new partnerships the Sanpete Pantry will continue to operate. Disease Last March, Nevada officials are reported multiple cases of an often-fatal neurological form of Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in horses that had recently traveled in regional rodeo circuits, some of which had been in Utah. “These recently reported cases are with horses that have traveled in junior high, high school, and professional circuits,” Dr. Barry Pittman, Utah state veterinarian at the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) said at that time. In April, two confirmed cases of Mumps had been found in the North Sanpete School District area. Non-vaccinated students and those who marked their registration forms as exempt, parents and employees of the district were informed of the cases.

During 2019, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) and Utah State Parks implemented serious boat inspection stations near several water bodies to prevent the spread of invasive species quagga and zebra mussels throughout Utah. Anyone with watercraft are required to stop at the inspection stations. Accidents, disasters Three teens were killed last May 3, when the sedan they were passengers in crashed into the back end of a flatbed truck. 18-year-old Ryan Lyman from Ephraim, and 16-year-old Julie Oldroyd from Fountain Green, were killed on impact, Kody Wheeler, 16, was taken to Sanpete Valley Hospital, where she died from her injuries. Last June 16, eight members of the Adam and Diedre Burningham family of Spring City were on their home’s balcony when it collapsed, a fall of about 20 feet. The cause of the collapse was determined as poor construction, built by an unknown builder using improper methods and materials. There were three 2x6 cross beams for the floor of the balcony and only 12 nails holding the beams in place. What started as a typical summer thunder storm last July 26 quickly became a cloud-burst that released torrents of running water, swelling normally dry gullies into rivers of mud and rock south of the Highway 89 junction with U.S. 6 in Thistle. Water levels rose, ran over Highway 89 and forced its closure for the entire weekend. Eric and Claudia Fossum, Fairview,

both suffered incapacitating injuries last Oct. 11 when their vehicle was struck by a pickup that was traveling above the posted speed limit about one and-a-half miles south of Mt. Pleasant. The driver of the pickup, Armando Tinoco, Midvale, suffered non-incapacitating injuries and was charged with driving under the influence (DUI). A juvenile black bear was hit by a vehicle and killed on Highway 89 north of Fairview, west of Milburn, last Oct. 16. A Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) conservation officer received a report about it and responded to the scene to investigate. Politics 2019 was the year for statewide municipal elections. Along with several city council members elected throughout Sanpete County, new city mayors were selected in Mt. Pleasant, Spring City and Fayette. In Mt. Pleasant, write-in candidate Michael Olsen received 513 votes and will be the new mayor. In Spring City the two-year office of mayor will be filled by Cynthia A. Degrey, who received 277 votes. In Fayette, Jed Bartholomew was the only candidate running for the office and will be the new mayor. In other political news, Utah’s Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox, Fairview, announced last May the he will seek the Republican nomination for governor in 2020. Since then he has visited several cities and received the endorsement of over 125 Utah Mayors.
