The Pyramid

MT. PLEASANT — North Sanpete High Community Council met Monday, March 12, to discuss how to best spend School Trust Land’s money, and also any other items of concern. The team went over the 2017-2018 budget and looked at the month-tomonth spending and it is all in line with what is expected. One-time budget items were taken out the first of the year and other amounts going out are related to salary of teachers who are teaching classes for reducing class sizes, and improving the rigor and academic offerings. There is currently $103,953 available for the 2018-20199 year. That dollar number will likely change as current legislation is put into place and numbers get more specific as the year progresses. The budget may change accordingly. Much of the School Trust Land money will be spent in the same way that it has been in the past school year with the caveat that there will be some change due to changes in salary within the district that won’t be decided until negotiations take place and are approved. Currently the projected expenditures are approximately $1,000 over budget and discussions took place to determine how to bring that amount back into line. One item where it was discussed to reduce funds is from the library, where not all of the money was spent last year. This year the budget amount was $3,000 and discussion was made to reduce the budget to $2,000 and then replace that difference if the money was available once a finalized dollar amount from the STL is delivered. The motion was made to approve the budget with the $2,000 amount and the difference would be made up either with additional funds from the STL or, if that money doesn’t become available, Principal Ault said that she would be able to make up the difference from the school general budget as a one-time payment. The council also discussed students who want to do a solidarity walkout on March 14, at 9:45 a.m. This walkout is being done on a worldwide scale to back those students at Parkland High School where 17 students were killed. It would last for 17 minutes, one minute for each student that lost their life. The walkout is sponsored by the

Ann Oldroyd the late Calli Oldroyd. She will perform a contemporary dance to “Glory and Gore” by Lorde. Her platform is “You’ve Got It in You!” Community Blood Drive.

Residents urged to make Spring City veterans memorial reality

Local artist, Douglas Fryer, has created this view of what the future veteran’s memorial monument will look like when completed in Spring City. The Spring City Veterans Memorial Association is seeking donations which can be mailed to: PO Box 126, Spring City, UT 84662; or can be dropped off at any Utah Heritage Credit Union office.

SPRING CITY — Courtney (Delray) Syme of the Spring City Veterans Memorial Association recently urged Spring City residents to “Do Your Bit!” to help fund the creation of the Spring City Veteran’s Memorial. Syme appreciates all those who have been following the associations Facebook page and have provided information about Spring City veterans, and have contributed money to the monument fund. He reported that stories and photographs of Spring City veterans are being added to their Facebook page.

Does Utah need a new political party? Dear Editor, A number of citizens think the answer is, yes. The website for the United Utah Party contains the following information. The citizens of Utah deserve a party that: • Does not carry the baggage of past partisan politics. • Advocates for change to better serve the people of Utah, not the political parties. • Looks for new solutions while maintaining traditional values. What does this new party stand for? We believe politics should

represent ordinary citizens more than politicians. We support the following: • Term limits for public officials. • Non-partisan elections for school board, county offices, and the state attorney general. • An independent redistricting commission to prevent the legislature from gerrymandering. • Stricter campaign finance limits. • Increased funding to fix our state’s schools, especially to lower class sizes. • A simpler, fairer tax system

that requires a fair share to be paid by all. How is this party different from Republicans or Democrats? • We believe in achieving results and finding practical solutions rather than continuing partisan gridlock and pushing extreme agendas. • Bringing together Republicans who worry their party is becoming too right-wing and Democrats who believe the same about their party, but from the left. • Reaching out to independents who have not felt either

party represents their more moderate, less extreme views. • Not putting strict litmus tests on candidates or requiring members to adopt extreme positions to feel like they belong to the party. If you are interested in or curious about this party, join us for the Sanpete County Caucus meeting in the old city council chambers, at the previous Spring City Hall building, 150 East Center Street, at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 20, or contact Gary Parnell at Gary Parnell Spring City

Seven Utah guard members recognized for heroism BLUFFDALE — Seven Utah Guard members were honored for heroism at an award ceremony March 10, at the Scott Lundell Readiness Center at Camp Williams. Maj. Gen. Jefferson Burton, adjutant general for the Utah National Guard, presented the awards for heroism demonstrated by the soldiers of Bravo Battery, 1st Battalion, 145th Field Artillery, during a civilian accident that occurred June 2, 2012, when two young girls lost control of a tractor while crossing the road in Manti. Accelerating towards the Utah Guard Manti Armory, the tractor struck a tree and overturned, pinning the two girls underneath. The quick actions and selfless bravery of these men rescued the girls from the tractor set ablaze and prevented what could have been a tragic incident in Man-

ti’s history. Four-of-the-seven Utah Guard members are being presented the Utah Cross — second in the order of merit for Utah Guard awards. This award is presented to those who distinguish themselves by voluntarily subjecting themselves to danger or extraordinary responsibilities with praiseworthy fortitude and exemplary courage above and beyond the call of duty. Utah Cross recipients (in alphabetic order) were: n Sgt. 1st Class Brice Avery, resident of Rigby, ID, now assigned as a Motor Sergeant for the 214th Forward Support Company, Utah National Guard, in Tooele. n Maj.

Caring and compliments MERRILL OGDEN

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” — Leo Buscaglia. That’s a high sounding quote from “Dr. Love.” That’s the nickname people used referring to Dr. Buscaglia — the USC professor, author of many books and television lecturer. I remember listening to some of his engaging talks on public television. I’ve read one or two of his books. He passed away in 1998 – heart attack. I didn’t know until researching a bit now that it was a student’s suicide that inspired him to ponder the meaning of life and human relationships or the lack of those relationships. He started a non-credit class at USC called Love 1A. I recently received what I took to be a high compliment from someone I respect. The guy said, “You really have a great sense of humor. I really enjoy the way you look at things and how you say things.” I don’t think he reads this column. So he’s not subjected to some of the lame humor I attempt here sometimes. That being said, there isn’t much humor intended in this column. So if that’s what you’re looking for, you can either stop reading now or dial down those expectations. My “complimenter” said further, “I’ve heard that a good sense of humor has been linked to high intelligence.” Now this guy really had me “on the hook.” I’ll feel indebted for life. What he said by way of a compliment reminded me of the quote which I used to open this piece. And it has made me wonder. How difficult is it to express a sincere compliment? How difficult is it to demonstrate a small act of caring and kindness? It shouldn’t be hard. I think it’s a matter of mindset. It’s a matter of being deliberate and intentional in following through with actions when we have thoughts that prompt us to do good things. I know people who are good at this, so it gives me hope. Relating back to Dr. Love and his pivotal moment with a student’s suicide, I unwittingly was involved in an episode years ago that by good fortune worked out well. I don’t want to “toot my own horn” too much here. But it’s really the only horn that I have and know how to play at the moment. And, like I say, my part was unwitting – so there’s really no horn to toot. All right, that’s enough of the horn tooting metaphor. Anyway, I met someone who ended up being my good, close friend, who claimed that I saved his life. When we

first met and got acquainted a little, I invited him to come to a “get together” which was to take place in several days. A small group of friends and acquaintances were going to get together to talk about starting a book club of sorts. (The club ended up being successful and active for several years with socials and outings that occasionally involved books.) At the time, I didn’t know that my new acquaintance was in an awful psychological place in his life. His marriage had hit the rocks and what he thought was his solid “happy ever after” future had ended. Two or three days after we met, this guy hooked a hose to the exhaust pipe of his vehicle in the garage and ran it to the inside of the vehicle. He got inside and was ready to say goodbye to this life. When he told me the story months later, he said, “I was all set to do this, when suddenly, out of the blue, I remembered that I had told you that I would come to the book club thing.” “You seemed like a nice guy and had been kind enough to invite me. I thought to myself that this “job” (of ending my life) could wait. I felt like I really shouldn’t disappoint you, since I said I would come.” I believe we really do underestimate the power of caring. People want to be noticed. People need to be noticed and given a feeling of value. When people are ignored, and feel isolated, and without worth, it is damaging. In many instances it can be dangerous on more than one level. Opportunities are all around us to show our caring and to give honest compliments. We don’t need to overdo it to the point of getting a reputation of being a “cornball.” But we can extend our natural personalities as best we can into the arena of being friendly and caring. I noticed a college age girl, whom I’m not acquainted with, in church last Sunday. She was wiping her eye at the same moment that I was wiping my eye during a heartfelt part of a story being told by the speaker. She happened to be the one who said the closing prayer in the meeting. I couldn’t help but feel her sincerity of heart and love for others as she prayed. I found myself nearby her right after the meeting and I said to her, “I can tell that you’re a caring person. Thanks for being here today.” She looked me square in the eyes and said, “Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that.” That brief interchange was nothing momentous. Or was it? It had the feeling as if it was. You know? I’m going to try to do better in following Dr. Leo Buscaglia’s advice by not underestimating the power of caring and compliments. Will you join me?

Hawk batters open season with five games BRAD BENTLEY

Pyramid Sports

KANAB — The North Sanpete baseball team opened up its season this past week with five games. The Hawks lost a region matchup in Monroe against the South Sevier Rams, and then traveled to Kanab over the weekend where they won three of their four contests. At South Sevier, Keegan Eliason took the mound for North Sanpete and held the Rams scoreless for the first two innings. South Sevier got on the board in the third as some opportune hitting and inopportune errors combined for three Ram runs. South Sevier’s Caleb Barton and Peydon Wood each hit triples and Treven Heath had a double to help the Monroe team. The Hawks were down 6-1 going in to the seventh when the Ram defense began to crumble. North Sanpete was able to put together four runs in the frame and looked like they might add more before South Sevier was able to shut down the rally. North Sanpete had just one hit in the contest but the Rams committed six errors to help out the Hawks. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite enough and North Sanpete fell 6-5.

Kanab In Kanab, the Sanpete nine played two games on Friday and two more on Saturday. First up for the Hawks was Enterprise High School, and the Wolves hitting was the big difference in the game. Enterprise had two triples and five doubles en route to a 14-4 victory. North Sanpete shook off the loss early in the day and took the field against the Millard Eagles ready to get its first win of the season. Eliason once again toed the rubber for the Hawks and after giving up a run in each of the first two innings settled down some while his team’s offense began to get going. The Hawks were scoreless until the fourth when they posted a big seven on the board. Juniors Cesar Lemus, Maison Burgess, and Tyler Hadley were each big contributors as all three had doubles in the game. With a 7-2 lead, Eliason could just settle down and throw strikes, and even though the team from Fillmore scored two more runs in both the fourth and the fifth innings, the Hawks maintained the lead. North Sanpete added two more insurance runs in the fifth and took the victory, 9-6.

Tyler Hadley prepares to advance to home in a game against the Millard Eagles. The Hawk team played five games last weekend in Monroe and Kanab. The Hawks must have decided they liked the taste of victory and came out on fire in the morning matchup against the host team, Kanab. North Sanpete only had three hits in the game, but posted another seven-run inning, this time in the first frame, and went on to

cruise to victory. Sanpete committed three errors in the game but only gave up two hits on its way to an 8-2 win. For the final game of the weekend, North Sanpete faced off against the Gunnison Bulldogs. The Bulldogs took a 3-0 lead in the second

inning as they got five hits off senior pitcher, Shawn Taylor, but Taylor shut the Gunnison defense down from that point on. North Sanpete used six hits to score a run in the bottom of the second, and then put two more runs across the plate in

the fifth to tie the score. With the runs knotted at the end of five, and the timed game nearing its end, the two teams played a tiebreaker, putting a runner on third with one out. Gunnison was unable to push their runner across with their opportunity and so now it was up to the Hawks to go and get the win. Junior outfielder, Ashton Osborne, was placed at third and it was senior Keegan Eliason’s chance at bat. Eliason promptly showed why he is considered a leader on the team. With the Gunnison defense shifted well to the left and playing Keegan to pull the ball, Eliason stroked a high-bouncing single over the head of the shortstop for a walk off single that allowed Osborne to score the winning run, and the Hawks left Kanab with a 4-3 victory. North Sanpete took to the road again on Tuesday playing a Region 15 contest in Richfield, against the Wildcats. The Hawks then took on the Delta Rabbits on Wednesday for the first home game of the season, and then will travel to the Salt Lake Valley to take on the Murray Spartans on Friday (results not available at press time).

Lady Hawks burst open season with four wins BRAD BENTLEY

Pyramid Sports

ST. GEORGE — Playing six games in the first week of the season, the North Sanpete Lady Hawk softball team wanted to find out if they really deserved their fourth-place state ranking. The squad went five-for-six over the week, with the only loss coming to Mountain Crest High in Cache Valley. The wins come over region foe, South Sevier and then Brighton, American Fork, Highland, Idaho, and Kearns, all schools that are much larger than rural North Sanpete. Under first-year coach Landon Bailey, the Lady Hawks opened the season on March 6 in Monroe against the South Sevier Lady Rams. North Sanpete flew off right from the opening inning and gave the hapless Rams no chance in the game. Behind home runs from sophomore Nakiah Taylor, and juniors Aubree Ison and Kelby Henry, the Hawk offense soared en route to a 22-3 shellacking of the hosts from South Sevier. The Lady Hawks have a very young team, with just three seniors and two juniors, supplemented by sophomores and freshmen. Two tenth graders, Taylor, who pitched all five inning for the victory, and Addy Brotherson, who fills the gap at shortstop, both had four hits,

Leading the RBI parade for North Sanpete was Ison who went 3-for-5 with five RBIs. Henry also had three hits and three RBIs. The game started with a one strike double by Brotherson, who was promptly moved to third on a nifty sacrifice bunt from one of the seniors, Laney Gillins. Aubree Ison brought in the first run when she singled to

center. After taking second on an error that put senior Lexie Olson on first, Ison came in to score off a Kelby Henry double. The third and fourth runs of the inning came when senior right fielder, Brooke Price poked a single into center that scored Olson and Henry, and the Hawks never looked back. Four more runs were scored in the second when Graciee Christiansen reached on an error and then singles by Laney

Gillins and Brotherson, and then a dinger by Taylor took the score to 8-0. North Sanpete put up two more runs in the top of the third before Taylor gave up her first run of the game in the bottom of the inning to make the score 10-1 and then the Lady Hawks added six more runs in both the fourth and the fifth frames while the Lady Rams could only manage two more in the bottom of the fourth.

game was called on the mercy rule after the fifth inning came to a close and the score at 22-3. The game was a good primer for North Sanpete, who hadn’t been able to play outside on its own field before the season opened. The Lady Hawks took off on Thursday to play in St. George in the Warm-Up Elite tourney. Coach Bailey’s team first faced off against the Brighton Bengals, a team from Salt Lake City, whose school has over 1600 students. With senior pitcher, Lexie Olson on the mound, the Lady Hawks were pretty sure they weren’t going to have to score many runs to get the win. Olson obliged by shutting out the Bengals and allowing just four hits while tallying six strikeouts. Kelby Henry scored the first run of the game after reaching base on an error and then getting to third on a passed ball. Henry came in without a hit being struck when the Brighton pitcher uncorked a wild pitch. Another wild pitch brought Sarah Oldroyd in from third, and a ground ball out brought Christiansen in after she reached base on a walk. The score remained 3-0 until the fourth inning when Graciee Christiansen was hit by a pitch and then stole second to get into scoring position. Gillins reached base on a 1-1 RBI

single that scored Christiansen and then Ison struck her second homer in as many games, sending a 1-2 pitch sailing over the centerfield fence to put the Lady Hawks up 6-0. The icing on the cake came in the fifth when Olson helped her own cause by sending a single up the middle and then moving around to third on an error and a wild pitch. A single by Price brought Olson across the plate for the final run of the game. American Fork Later in the day it was American Fork that faced off across the diamond with the Lady Hawks. Brotherson again had four hits for North Sanpete and knocked in 5 RBI with two doubles to lead her squad. Sophomore Nakiah Taylor pitched all six innings to get the win. Both teams scored once in the first inning before North Sanpete pasted four runs on the board in the second off three singles, a walk, and a couple of fielder’s choices. North Sanpete continued to score runs and added 13 of them combined in the fourth and the sixth innings to bury the Lady Cavemen. Emma Bailey had a triple and an RBI while Christiansen and Olson each added two RBI for their team. The Hawks buried the Cavemen 20-8. Please see LADY HAWKS, Page A7

Mountain Crest The final game of the day was only the only loss for the Lady Hawks, and also a game where Coach Bailey also played some of his other players that hadn’t seen much playing time yet. Elly Gillins pitched the majority of the game while Christiansen came on in relief to finish the game out. With the Hawks down 4-2 in the fourth, Mountain Crest put up six runs to balloon the score to 10-2. North Sanpete battled back in the fifth and final inning. That frame began when sophomore Daryan Long, playing catcher, reached on a twobase error, and then moved around on a single by Brotherson. Laney Gillins stroked a single into center and then stole a base to get to second. An error put the senior on third, and Olson to first. Henry then laced a double into right to score a couple of runs, and then she scored when Price also put a shot into right. Singles by Ison and Long scored the final run for the Lady Hawks who fell just short, 10-8. Highland, ID On Saturday, North Sanpete woke up to meet up with a team from Highland, ID; a team that the Lady Hawks defeated 12-5. Christiansen took the mound to start this time for Coach Bailey and she went for four inning before Elly Gillins came in to close the game out. Brotherson garnered three hits and brought in three runs, while Henry also had three hits and accounted for one RBI. The Lady Hawks went up 3-1 in the first and 5-3 in the second and never gave up the lead again. Two more runs in the third and then a nice four-run inning in the fifth kept the gap wide. An insurance run was added in the sixth to give Christiansen and the Lady Hawks the win. Kearns North Sanpete also showed that it could win with some grit. Facing off against the Kearns Cougars in the final game of the tournament, the Lady Hawks faced a one-run deficit going into the final inning. The Sanpete squad pushed two runs across in the bottom of the seventh to get the victory. The Lady Hawks looked to be very in control of the game when they put five runs on the board in the third inning. Two doubles, a single, and then home runs by Ison and Taylor put North Sanpete up 5-1 and into what appeared to be a commanding lead, with Taylor toeing the rubber for Bailey’s team. The Cougars came roaring back in the fifth with five runs of their own, using a fielder’s choice, single, and three doubles, along with an error to again take the lead. North Sanpete faced a 7-6 deficit going into the seventh inning and the first hitter of the inning hit an easy blooper to second for the first out. With just two outs remaining, Henry, who played second most of the tournament, hit a single into center to begin the comeback, and then stole second to get into scoring position. Henry scored the tying run when Emma Bailey laced a single past the shortstop and Bailey then moved over off a freshman Graciess Christiansen’s single. An error brought Bailey home with the winning run. The Lady Hawks have a light schedule this week, at least the varsity does. They have just one game, a region affair in Richfield against the Wildcats. The junior varsity will travel back to St. George this weekend to play in another tourney.



Public swim team begins in Mt. Pleasant RAY LAFOLLETTE

The Pyramid

MT. PLEASANT — Mt. Pleasant Aquatic Center recently announced the creation of the Mt. Pleasant public swim team. All swimmers ages six to 18 years old are encouraged to participate with the team. A master’s level team may be formed for those ages 18 and older if there is enough interest. The swim team is known as the Betta Swim Team with a betta fish as the team logo. The betta is also known as the Siamese fighting fish, which is a popular species known as a territorial fish prone to high levels of aggression. Signups Signups have begun and can be taken at the Mt. Pleasant Aquatic Center, 74 East Main, or online at When online select Aquatic Center classes, then select Betta Swim Team to register. There is a fee to participate. For more information call (435) 462-1333. All interested swimmers are asked to come to the aquatic center for evaluation prior to signing up, to assure participants meet the required level four or above swim skills. Participants are expected to know the basic moves of four styles of swimming including, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.


All swimmers ages six to 18 years old are encouraged to participate as a member of the new public Betta Swim Team which has begun practice sessions in the Mt. Pleasant Aquatic Center, 74 East Main. For more information visit the center or call (435) 462-1333. The team is co-ed and all members will practice and prepare as a team, but will compete as individuals. In competition, boys will compete against boys and girls against other girls. Team practice Swim team practice sessions have begun and are scheduled to take place Monday – Thursday, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. The current session ends May 17, but is still accepting participants. The next session will begin the first week of June.

Practice sessions include work on endurance, technique and occasional fun. Swimming is still fun, it’s not all laps. Competition Participants will have the opportunity to compete against other public swim teams which may include those from Ephraim, Gunnison, Richfield, Nephi, Delta, Cedar City, Millard, Moab and Vernal. Depending on where swim meets are held there may be personal travel required. Recommended gear Participants are expected to

provide their own gear. Recommended gear includes a 100 percent polyester swim suit and a good pair of goggles. Those with long hair need to use a swim cap. Swim caps, towels and goggles are available for purchase at the aquatic center. Suits are not, but can be purchased online from www.swimoutlet. com or There are four great reasons to use a swim cap: 1. Protection The swim cap fits snugly over the head, covering the


hair and scalp. The covering protects those areas from the chemicals in the pool. Chlorine in particular damages the hair and may cause discoloration. This is especially a problem for those who spend lots of time in the pool practicing for competitions. 2. Reduced Resistance Hair creates drag that can slow swimmers down in the water. The snug fit of the swim cap keeps hair pressed down and covered to reduce the amount of resistance which is particularly useful for those who swim competitively. It also allows competitive swimmers to keep their hair longer without the worry of the hairstyle slowing them down in the pool. 3. Identification A bright swimming cap helps identify a swimmer in the water when it is otherwise difficult to differentiate between multiple swimmers and helps swimmers avoid bumping into one another. 4. Cleanliness Keeping hair securely under a swim cap means a user won’t shed any hair during their swim. This can help keep a pool clean. The hair may clog the filters or make them dirtier. The caps also reduce hairspray and other hairstyling products that otherwise end up in the pool if the swimmer doesn’t wash their hair before swimming.

Hawk netters win first match 3-2 against Bruins BRAD BENTLEY

Pyramid Sports

MT. PLEASANT — North Sanpete Hawk boy’s tennis team had its first match of the season, facing the visiting Mountain View Bruins across the net. The local netters looked good in their opening salvo as they took the match, 3-2. The weather was incredibly nice for this early in the spring, with temperatures in the mid50s, very little wind, and even a bit of cloud cover to take the sun away as a deterrent.

Trevor Ence played in the first singles spot for the Hawks and looked very impressive in the opening set against his Bruin opponent, Jonathan Hull. The senior from Fairview easily took the opener 6-0, but to win a match two sets needed to be secured. In the second match, both players stroked evenly with neither getting an edge against their opponent. As the set came to its close, it looked like the two would go to a set tiebreaker, but Hull was able to get the important final game and won 7-5. The third

set was all Mountain View, and Hull won 6-3. Fairview junior, Russell Madsen, wasted little time to take care of the Bruin’s Kimball Macentine. In less than 40 minutes Madsen shook hands across the net with his opponent, gathered up his equipment, and left the court with a 6-1, 6-0 win. While senior Trevor Olson may have taken a lot more time, his result was still a Hawk victory. Olson’s first set was a very methodical 7-6 (3) win that took over an hour

to complete. But Mountain View’s Brayden Gibbs didn’t have much more to give in the second set and Trevor easily finished off the match, 6-2. The first double duo of Joseph Garlick and Kendall Grasteit is expected to go very far in the 3A state tourney, and they looked dominating on this day. The two teamed up last year and looked good, but this year they were even stronger. Within a half hour time, Garlick and Grasteit dispatched their Mountain View opponents, 6-0, 6-1.

In second doubles, Luke Lewis and Cody Strange were playing their first ever varsity match, and while the two sophomores showed some good potential, they struggled against their Bruin foes and dropped a 6-1, 6-1 decision. North Sanpete played at Salem Hills on March 14 in a four-way tournament that also hosted Manti and Grantsville. The netters will then be at home again on Thursday to take on Vernal’s Uintah Utes (results not available at press time).

Miracle cat “Turtle” mends after accidental burn SANPETE COUNTY — Utah Valley Animal Rescue (UVAR) reported in a recent Facebook post that “Turtle” the cat, is on the mend after being an accidental burning victim. According to their post, there was routine maintenance of burning ditches occurring in Sanpete County and those doing the work didn’t realize Turtle was in one. After what must’ve been the most traumatic experience for him, Turtle still allowed his rescuers to pick him up and get him help. Turtle is one of the nicest cats, and even though the worst of the burns is to his face, all he wants is the back of his ears scratched all day long. When he came into UVARs custody he went to Doctor Bott at Mountain West Animal Hospital. Doc Bott put him under to clean him up and open up his eyes, as they were swollen shut. Miraculously it looks like there was no damage to his eyes. Although he receives eyes drops three times a day to try and keep it that way.

“Turtle” is on the mend at Utah Valley Animal Rescue after being badly burned during recent routine ditch burning maintenance in Sanpete County. (Photo courtesy of Utah Valley Animal Rescue) UVAR believes he is a long haired brown tabby, but did shave him, since most, if not all, of his hair was singed to a degree and matted. UVAR will also do everything they can to

help him and aide in his recovery. When Turtle has fully healed, he will be put up for adoption. He is the most loving cat who deserves the world.

Donations to help care for Turtle or any of the other animals in UVARs care would be appreciated. To donate online, visit: https://poundwishes. com/donate/2587140/turtle.

Farmers’ website unveiled for agriculture producers GRAND RAPIDS, MI — U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently unveiled, the new interactive one-stop website for producers maintained by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). is now live but will have multiple features added over the coming months to allow agricultural producers to make appointments with USDA offices, file forms, and apply for USDA programs. The website, launched at a breakfast hosted by the Michigan Farm Bureau, gathers together the three agencies that comprise USDA’s Farm Production and Conservation mission area: the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Risk Management Agency. “Many farmers are out in

their fields using equipment that is connected to satellite and GPS technology, yet when they need to interact with USDA, they have to stop, fill out a paper form, and fax or carry it to their local office. That is a real digital divide,” Perdue said. “Our staff is friendly, and they love to see farmers in person, but they know that time is valuable. Producers are working hard to make their farms profitable, so these tools will help get the paperwork done without taking a big chunk out of the day to fill out forms.” is mobile device-friendly and can identify for farmers the most convenient USDA office locations. New functions will be added shortly, including an interactive calendar, farming success stories, an online appointment

Additionally, when the 2018 Farm Bill is signed into law, there will be plain language program descriptions and a tool to determine eligibility. “As I’ve traveled to 32 states in my first nine months as Secretary of Agriculture, I have consistently heard people ex-

press a desire for greater use of technology in the way we deliver programs at USDA,” Perdue said. “It’s my goal to make USDA the most effective, most efficient, most customer-focused department in the entire federal government, and Farmers. gov is a big step in that direction.”

RMP warns phone scams targeting utility customers SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) is reminding customers to be aware of phone scams that target utility customers. Nearly every day in February customers reported receiving fraudulent calls from scammers posing as utility representatives. The callers, who at this time seem to be targeting small businesses and time their calls for the weekend, insist that the customer is behind on payments. They then threaten that, without an immediate payment, service will be disconnected. Customers can protect themselves from these types of schemes by being aware of the

following signs that indicate fraudulent calls: • If the caller says he is with the “Rocky Mountain Power Disconnection Department.” No such department exists. • If the caller asks for a credit card number or advises customer to purchase a pre-paid card from a store and to call back with the code. Rocky Mountain Power will not ask for this information. RMP can facilitate credit card payments through their vendor upon request, but RMP employees don’t handle these payments directly. • If the caller claims a customer’s electric service will be disconnected if the customer

doesn’t make a payment immediately, particularly if there hasn’t been any prior notice received about late payments or a potential disconnection. RMP doesn’t threaten customers. Instead, RMP works with customers who are behind on their payments to help them get back on track. Generally, notices about past due bills are sent to customers in the mail or delivered to their home, or they receive an automated phone message. If one of these scam calls is received, ask the caller to state the account number they are calling about and compare it with the number listed on a recent bill.

Rocky Mountain Power customer service employees will always have an account number. Remember, if there are still concerns about the legitimacy of a call, always hang up on the suspected scammer and call Rocky Mountain Power at their published customer service number, 1-888-221-7070. It’s a toll free call and RMP has customer service employees available around the clock. If a suspicious call is received, take note of the phone number the person is calling from and any information that may help to track down the crooks. Then call and let RMP know at 1-888221-7070.

The Pyramid

LAYTON — Under the direction of North Sanpete High School’s (NSHS) Business Teacher Justin Morley, the North Sanpete Chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) traveled to Layton last week to participate in the culminating state high school competition. The NSHS Hawks placed three individuals resulting in a great showing for

Morley’s group. In all, 11 students attended the FBLA state conference. The squad finished in second place over-all this past January in the region competition at Richfield. Because of that previous performance Morley felt his team was well prepared for this event. Three students earned awards at the conference. Leading the way was junior, Coldir Cox, who placed an admirable

fifth place in public speaking and then went on to take state in impromptu speaking. Cox’s score was rated higher than a perfect score, something that is ever rarely achieved. Joining Cox on the awards stand was sophomore Mayzie Grace Talbot who worked hard to earn her sixth place certificate in journalism. Colby Hank Orton also finished high, taking sixth place in spreadsheet applications.

grandmother for second through fifth grades. During that time is when her desire to paint began. One of her paintings, Santa and his reindeer flying over the housetops, so impressed her teacher that she wanted Compton to attend the art Institute in downtown Chicago. But because her mother worked full time, there would be no one to take her on the two busses needed to reach the Institute, so that dream never happened. Later on after finishing one year of college, Compton went to work at the Northwestern University dental

With free time on her hands, Compton started painting again. She has been taking painting classes

with Marie Lindahl for a number of years. Her paintings have won four first place awards at the Sanpete County Fair and one first place at the Salt Lake City Fair.

The Pyramid

SANPETE COUNTY — The annual Sanpete County Search and Rescue fundraising day of fun known as Radio Days has been scheduled on Monday, April 2. This year’s goal is to raise $50,000 for 50 years of service. KMTI radio station, Manti, has generously donated air time on that day to raise money to support Search and Rescue in Sanpete County. 100 percent of the advertising proceeds generated during this event will go to the Sanpete County Search and Rescue team to pay for equipment, training, supplies, and maintenance throughout the year. Coke Jails will be setup around the county selling Search and Rescue (SAR) t-shirts and coke products. Those who would like to donate can do so at the following locations: Gunnison Market, Manti Top Stop, Ephraim Maverik, Mt. Pleasant Maverik and the Moroni Silver Eagle. Each year thousands of visitors gather in amazing Sanpete County for outdoor recreation. Some wilderness activities don’t always turn out as expected. When things take a turn for the worse, the non-profit Search and Rescue team is called out to save the day. It can cost a substantial amount of time and expense to successfully save those persons who are in trouble. All donations will help cover those costs. SAR has witnesses who greatly appreciate their help. For instance, from July 2017 comes this review from Lynn Steen: “The people who rescued myself and a friend from the top of Skyline Drive last weekend were

In the early 1980s KMTI radio turned over the radio station to the search and rescue jeep posse on April Fool’s Day for a fund raising radio-thon with Kerry Deuel as the “voice” while other members read the ads.

This year’s goal is to raise $50,000 for 50 years of service. not only the best in the business of saving people, but the best of humans on the earth.” “To reach us after the thunderstorm that stranded us took several ATVs and one old Bronco at least two hours. The situation put those wonderful people in peril yet they were so kind and thoughtful! And, they slogged through that slick clay as if they had nothing better to do that night. THANK YOU!!” Everyone is encouraged to share this information with their friends and family. Those who would like to donate, but cannot attend in person, can do so on the Sanpete County Search and Rescue Facebook page. Otherwise SAR hopes to see everyone on April 2 at one of the SAR Coke jail locations.
