PROVO — James Fowlke Richards, 46, Pleasant Grove, is allegedly to have fraudulently requested more than $20,000 in reimbursements for medical expenses he claimed to be paying for Addie Fausett’s medical expenses. According to charging documents, Richards only paid a few of her bills and kept the rest of the money. In 2014, little Addie Lynn Fausett’s grandmother, Maree Jensen, made a social media request for a “lifetime of Christmas cards” to be sent to the little girl who wished she had friends like her sisters and wanted to be able to laugh and play.

WA sets goal to be plastic water bottle free school MT. PLEASANT — Wasatch Academy (WA) Sustainability Committee, made up of students and faculty, recently joined the growing movement to reduce the huge amount of waste caused by plastic bottles. The “Ban the Bottle” campaign has since become a high priority for the committee. Plastic pollution is one of the most significant burdens to the environment. Believe it or not, enough plastic is discarded every year to circle the globe four times. Even worse, it is estimated that 50 percent of the plastic on this planet is used only once before being thrown away. Wasatch Academy currently provides bottled water for campus events in a number of settings. It is the committee’s goal for the school to be a “plastic water bottle free school” by Sept. 1. Committee members and the Development Office have set a goal to raise $24,500. Funds raised through this campaign will be used to purchase and install

In another step forward toward a zero-waste goal, Wasatch Academy Sustainability Committee recently joined the growing movement to reduce the huge amount of waste caused by plastic bottles.

The ban is “another step forward on Please see BOTTLE, Page A6

The request made headlines as Addie was suffering with an undiagnosed disease which caused her to stop growing at the age of three. Her grandmother’s request led to the inundation of the Fountain Green Post Office with more than 300,000 Christmas cards, letters and gifts. Addie defied the odds and almost made it to her eighth birthday, but lost her battle July 29, 2016, in spite of many trips to Primary Children’s Medical Center where doctors felt she had symptoms of cerebral atrophy but were unable to diagnose her disease. Richards is allegedly to have led the Fausett family to believe he was a Please see FUNDS, Page A6

EPHRAIM--Work will begin this summer to improve transportation and recreation opportunities in 12 Mile Canyon. On Jan. 26, Sanpete District Ranger Kyle Beagley signed the 12 Mile Canyon Decision clearing the way for numerous improvement and restoration actions throughout the canyon. The Forest Service plans to complete the project over three years, and the 2018 project implementation efforts will be primarily focused on the Spring Hill and Town Reservoir areas. The forest plans to work on road improvements, angler parking areas, closure and rehabilitation of unauthorized routes and installation of barriers to protect wetlands and other resources. The Decision Notice indicated that a substantial increase in dispersed camping and Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) use in the 12 Mile Canyon watershed has resulted in a noticeable increase in user-created roads and OHV trails resulting in a need for improvements and restoration. The project is intended to develop resource-sensitive transportation routes that provide access to camping and staging areas in 12 Mile Canyon. The project will also provide camping and trail opportunities and amenities in order to meet the needs of users. It will contain motorized use at many dispersed campsites, modify some to mitigate impacts, and close others to protect natural resources. The 12 Mile project was approved after an environmental assessment was completed, including public comment periods and an objection resolution process. Project documents are available at project/?project=43989 or can be obtained at the Sanpete District Office, 540 North Main Street, Ephraim or phone 435-283-4151.

Bootstrap theory not always a solution SHERI MORRIS

Central Utah Counseling

EPHRAIM — Many of a person’s personal core values and attitudes are handed down from their parents, who got their values from their parents. Values are the things most important to people in life. Values are things like perseverance, patience, and service. They can also be things like competitiveness, money, and work. A value that is grounded in pioneer heritage is independence. A great-grandmother may have made it across the plains pushing a handcart with the family piano in it all by herself. Those who read it are inspired by the story and aspire for this independent pioneer spirit for themselves. That’s a value. Another value is that of service. People learn at church and school and from their family that it is important to

serve others. They follow the example of preparing meals for those who are sick, raising money for charity, providing help to those who are in need. Those same people may give of their time and material resources to benefit another. Service is a value. What happens when a person finds themselves in need? Maybe there aren’t enough groceries to get through the month, maybe they are suffering with a low mood that they can’t seem to pick themselves up from, or maybe they are experiencing bullying from someone at school. A person may find their personal value of independence gets in the way of asking for help for them self. When a person thinks about it — they are contradicting themselves if they believe it is good to give help, but not to receive it. It’s OK to ask for help. People

don’t have to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. People are wired for connection and are wired to help each other and receive help. In truth, the grandmother who made it across the plains with the piano probably did not do it all on her own. She helped others and received help for herself. If one considers it, giving service and receiving help are the same coin. Social Researcher Brené Brown put it this way: “Until we can receive with an open heart, we’re never really giving with an open heart. When we attach judgment to receiving help, we knowingly or unknowingly attach judgment to giving help.” Try this, do a Google search for a list of personal core values, like this one found at http:// then ask oneself the following questions:

What are my top five values? Is it as important to me to take care of myself as it is to take care of others? For more information or help contact Linda D. Phillips, Behavioral Health Patient Liaison, Sanpete Valley Hospital, via email to: linda.phillips@ or by phone (435) 851-5206. Phillips remembers being asked to help a girl who had just returned home early from her mission. She was crying every night for more than a week. But when she was offered the grant program to help with counseling, her parents said she would eventually get over it, refused the counseling, and said that they would take care of it themselves. Consider this, not everyone can just pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Some require counseling and even medication.

Olympic fever Happy Belated Valentine’s Day! If you didn’t do something for your loved one(s) yesterday, don’t despair. You can do something special this weekend to make up for it. Maybe a special Olympic viewing party could be done? Have you got “Olympic Fever?” Me neither. Well, maybe a little. My fever temperature is rising I think. I watched Shaun White do his qualifying half-pipe snowboarding runs Monday night and that got me pumped up a little. I got a bit annoyed with all the commercials and “television teasing” that NBC was doing. They kept saying multiple times that Shaun White would be doing his run “next” or “coming right up.” Then after six or eight commercials, it actually happened. When Shaun first competed years ago, you may remember him with his long, flowing, red hair. They called him the “flying tomato.” Now he looks like a guy who could be on the cover of GQ Magazine – all clean cut. I have watched quite a few of the events so far in PyeongChang. My interest usually increases as the games go on. The closing ceremonies are on Sunday the 25th, so we all have time to “catch the fever.” Sixteen years ago when the Olympics were in Utah (wow, 16 years already), I had the fever. Some of you may even remember that a couple of years before those games, I gave a proposal that would have had Sanpete hosting the winter games. The Olympic Committee wasn’t as impressed as I thought they would be when I proposed that the Gunnison Correctional Facility could be adapted into an Olympic Village. I had envisioned an iced over Nine Mile Reservoir covered with fans watching the curling competition. Fairview Canyon would have been the venue for skiing events. I had it all figured out. The amount of time and money spent on the Olympics is unfathomable. I saw a report that these Olympics in South Korea will cost $12.9 billion. Wow! I think we could do it here for maybe a

Jesse Rhinn Gilstrap, Indianola, was arrested in Indianola by the Sanpete County Sheriff ’s Office on charges of domestic assault and damage to communication device. Bail was set at $1,750.

mere $10 billion. Of course it doesn’t matter how much you spend, it’s hard to control the weather. It would be hard to hold the Olympics in Sanpete this year. It’s finally gotten colder, but where’s the snow? It was just this time of year, sixteen years ago during the Salt Lake Olympics on Valentine’s Day, that I showed my true romantic side. Ladies, tell me if this doesn’t give you goose bumps. Being the sensitive, lover type that I am, I got tickets to an Olympic hockey game for a Valentine’s Day date night. Really — what says, “I love you” more than tickets to a hockey game between Latvia and Ukraine? We were two of the 8,449 spectators in attendance that night in what was then called the E – Center (Maverick Center, now). It was a memorable night. My wife was a good sport. We cheered and yelled as if we “had a horse in the race.” I was just glad to get out the place alive. No – really! I came within inches of suffering a premature death. It would have been “death by hockey puck” inscribed on my death certificate if that puck had come at just a little different trajectory. That puck put a dent in the plastic backrest of the vacant seat next to me. I learned that hockey is a game that deserves strict attention as a spectator – especially when you’re seated behind and above the plexi-glass (I want to say “sneeze guard”) behind the goal net. I wish I had been able to retrieve that puck. Someone else got it. It would have looked nice framed on my wall with the caption, “You missed me!” I would have put it next to the pennant I have which reads, “I Saw The Flame.” I got that pennant when the late, and legendary, Coach Wilbur Braithwaite from Manti was a torchbearer of the Olympic flame in 2002. Enjoy the Olympics! And enjoy President’s Day weekend! That’s coming up this weekend. Monday is a federal holiday. Don’t forget that the courthouse, the post office, government offices, banks, etc. will be closed on Monday.

Hunting guide illegally kills desert bighorn sheep in Utah Fish Lake perch KANAB — A well-known hunting guide won’t be hunting in Utah—or 46 other states—anytime soon. In addition to losing his hunting privileges for the next 10 years, the guide and outfitter has paid more than $30,000 in fines and restitution. In July 2017, Larry Altimus of Pearce, AZ; was found guilty of wanton destruction of protected wildlife – trophy desert bighorn sheep, which is a third degree felony in Utah. An eight-person jury in Kane County listened to three days of testimony before finding Altimus guilty of illegally obtaining a Utah resident hunting permit and then using the permit to kill a desert bighorn sheep ram on the Zion hunting unit in southwestern Utah. “Kane County Deputy Attorney Jeff Stott did an outstanding job prosecuting this case,” says Mike Fowlks, director of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR). “Hats off to the attorneys in Kane County. Stott and Kane County Attorney Rob Van Dyke did an amazing job.” Acquiring permit through fraud Every time a hunter applies for a Utah big game hunting permit, but doesn’t draw one, he or she receives a bonus point. Every point a hunter obtains increases the odds the hunter will draw a permit in the future. By 2013, Altimus had earned 21 desert bighorn sheep bonus points in Utah. Even with a

tournament cancelled

Larry Altimus poses with the desert bighorn ram he illegally killed in southwestern Utah. Taking the sheep cost him dearly: he can’t hunt in 47 states for the next 10 years. And he paid more than $30,000 in restitution and fines. (Photo courtesy of the Utah DWR) high number of points, the chance he’d draw a non-resident bighorn sheep permit were still slim. “But,” Fowlks says, “if he claimed residency in Utah, he knew he had a good chance of drawing a permit reserved for Utah residents.” In August 2013, Altimus rented a house in Kanab. In March 2014, he used his Kanab address to apply for one-of-10 desert bighorn sheep permits available to Utah residents that year. In May 2014, he drew the permit. In June 2014, he moved

back to Arizona. In October 2014, Altimus came back to Utah where he killed a huge desert bighorn ram using his fraudulently obtained permit. Severe penalties Fowlks says Utah is one of 47 states that are part of the Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact. “If you lose your hunting privileges in one of the states,” he says, “you automatically lose your privileges in all of them. Altimus won’t be hunting in any of the 47 states for a long, long time.” In addition to losing his

SEVIER COUNTY — Unsafe ice conditions have forced the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) to cancel one of Utah’s most popular fishing events. The Fish Lake Perch Tournament, scheduled to begin Saturday, Feb. 24, will not be held this year. “Safety is our top priority,” says Richard Hepworth, Southern Region aquatic manager for the DWR. “Unfortunately, the ice isn’t safe enough to hold a large event at Fish Lake this year. And, based on the long-term weather forecast, we don’t think the ice conditions will improve much between now and Feb. 24.” Anglers can still win a prize Even though the tournament has been canceled, anglers still have a chance to win a prize. DWR biologists have placed tags on 1,000 yellow perch in the lake. Any angler that catches a tagged fish between now and Aug. 31, should take it to the Fish Lake Resort Store, or the Bowery Haven Resort, for a chance to win a firearm donated by Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife. The prize drawing will be held Sept. 1. “The more tagged fish you catch,” Hepworth says, “the more chances you have to win.” Ice fishing still possible Even though the ice at Fish Lake can’t support a large tournament event—almost

The best trick or life hack NOTICE OF INTENT TO SELL


The Dinner Diva

FORT MILL, SC — Here’s the biggest and best trick (or hack — call it what you want) I have ever learned and it applies to anything--food, exercise, goals, relationships, business, name that tune...everything. Ready? Planning. Now don’t go rolling eyes at me! This is something that needs to be discussed--and implemented, because the simple act of planning can completely change a person’s life! And no, that’s not hyperbolic babble, it’s the truth, capital T. When a person plans their day, they do things differently than the guy who just lets life happen. Planners don’t hit the snooze on their alarm. Planners don’t neglect to get some exercise in and don’t eat haphazardly and all the wrong foods. People who plan live life on purpose. With a plan and with some very definite goals. For example, let’s talk food for a minute. It’s no secret that restaurant drive-thru processed foods and sugar cause disease, malaise and make a person feel like garbage. But if a person hasn’t planned their day well, that

person could find themself at the mercy of fast and easy instead of planned and healthy. Multiply that scenario by days, weeks and years, and chances are that person is dealing with weight, health and even depression issues. Food is medicine and the bedrock of health. No one can move the health needle in their life without making sure the food they are eating is truly giving their body the exact nutrients it needs. I’ve said it before and I’ll likely say it again--but people have this tendency to treat their cars better than themselves. People never dream of filling their gas tanks with soft drinks--cars can’t run on that. People never neglect the oil light on the dashboard or pretend the nearly flat tire doesn’t need air if they want to get anywhere. Yet people do that with themselves--eating whatever (even though that isn’t the fuel they require), neglecting the flashing lights on their per-

sonal dashboards (achy joints, weight out of control, blemishes, bloating and more) and running on absolute fumes till they drop. And here’s the rub--that car can be replaced but a body can’t. All a person gets in life is one body; it can’t be traded in for a new and better version. But what a person can do is become a better version of them self! YES, now. Not January 1st. NOW. Start today--plan! I’m going to give everyone my best, save-the-bacon tip to help them with their plan that will up-level their health and energy. Make soup! Not just any soup, but Mighty Mitochondria Soup. The recipe can be found online at: recipe/mitochondria-miracle-soup/ This soup will not only give a person something to fall back on when they are super busy during the holidays, but it makes a great and satisfy-

ing snack, meal (just add some leftover protein!) and will keep personal nutrient levels from falling off. This is my secret weapon--I use this soup ALL the time. But right now? During the holidays? It’s even more important! Take care of oneself and eat the soup—because the body is way more valuable than a car! PS--speaking of achy joints and depression, my #1 go-to that I take DAILY is SAM-e. I’ve taken it for almost 30 years when a doctor friend told me about it. It works like nothing else I’ve ever tried and for that reason, I’ve found the best quality formula out there and made it available. Check it out at: sam-e/ Leanne Ely is a NYT bestselling author and the creator of, the original menu planning website, bringing families back to the dinner table for over 15 years.

friend who loved Addie, while seeking medical reimbursements from one of the charities involved and later using a GoFundMe account to raise money for funeral expenses and a headstone. The GoFundMe account was reported to have more than $10,000 in it which was never received by Addie’s family. Addie’s mother, Tami Fausett said that Richards “knows he lied, knows he stole, knows what he did, and should just own up to it. It is most troubling to think that the money taken came from donations caring strangers had given, in some cases noting that the donation was all they could spare as they were touched by Addie’s story.” In October 2016, Richards was charged with three counts of communications fraud, a second-degree felony; and forgery, a third-degree felony. During a Feb. 8 hearing, Sam Pead, deputy Utah County attorney, said his office has been negotiating a plea deal with Richards, but details have not been finalized. Richards is scheduled for arraignment on Feb. 22.
