Mormon Miracle Pageant presents history June 14-16, 19-23
MANTI — Tonight Manti takes on new life and excitement with the first-of-eight performances of the Mormon Miracle Pageant. The hill on the south side of the Manti LDS Temple has been turned into a giant stage, larger than a football field. A cast of over 900 volunteer actors will depict scenes from history with dance, music and drama for a large audience seated under a canopy of stars. This year’s presentation runs June 14-16, 19-23 with no performance on Sunday or Monday. Admission is free. Gates open each night at 6 p.m., and the pageant begins at 9:30 p.m. This year marks the 52nd yearly presentation of the pageant. Each year, the pageant retells the account of the resurrected Jesus Christ visiting the people on the American continents. The dramatization includes Christ healing and teaching the people, as well as blessing the children, just as he did in Jerusalem. Then time fast-forwards to the 1800s, when farm boy Joseph Smith received and later translated the record of this ancient American people. The record is known today as the Book of Mormon. The Manti LDS Temple grounds provide a wonderful stage for this year’s Finally, the presentation concludes 52nd Annual Mormon Miracle Pageant, which begins tonight on the hill with the story of a fictional couple overlooking the Sanpete Valley on the south side of the temple. Attendees can witness the pageant June 14-16 and 19-23. Its free to attend, gates open searching for religious truth and at 6 p.m., pageant begins at 9:30 p.m. enlightenment and the joy they find

Can a city license rights? Dear Editor: I salute the 2017 Utah legislature for the passage of Senate Bill 81. It enforces the foundation of the Declaration of independence clause “All men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” This defines rights and where they come from. Can a city license rights? Ephraim City code says any activity engaged in for a profit requires a license. This conflicts with Gods given rights for Ephraim’s giving license for a person to live and make a living where there is no harm is a dilemma solved by S.B.81, which disallows municipalities from licensing for profit. License definition: a per-
sonal privilege to do some particular act---and is ordinarily revocable at the will of the licensor. Control is part of ownership. This would make anyone engaged for profit a servant, or slave to Ephraim and their good will. Licensing will prevail over rights when ignorance, indifference or a Godless society exists. State law requires any money from licensing must be used in the policing of the regulations of the licensee. (There is no beer hall to police and regulate now.) The dilemma of right vs. license, is intensified by Ephraim’s refusal to give up the lucrative licensing for profit. Should a person obey superior state law and refuse a license, or get a license there-
fore aiding and abetting the commission of a crime the city is perpetuating? (Breaking the state’s law is a crime). The same dilemma applies to paying the franchise fee outlawed in S.B.81. If you don’t pay that they add it to the next bill with 10 percent added each month, that makes 120 percent charge per year. Forced payment of an illegal charge is called “racketeering.” Another dilemma for the seven policemen is the legal doctrine of “dirty hands” which in essence says you can’t force me to keep the law if you are breaking it. How can they enforce the law when what they do may be invalid? I understand why the United States was recently downgraded to the 18th freest nation in a less free world. No
one wants to give up money and power, it’s the trend, more government, less freedom. I received notice that Ephraim City is transferring $231,374 from Utilities to the General Fund. They recently approved a tax increase of the water for funding a well. When I get a new expense (increased taxes) I look to cut expenses from a fixed income. I’m not convinced the city needs all the police, recreation, etc. that they can’t cut expenses and keep the law. I would rather see them change the water purification from the poison chlorine to healthy oxygen. I consider health more important than recreation. I think this will not end well.

a book committee, which encouraged all of those who had been a part of the pageant in any capacity to record their memories of the people, events and impressions they have experienced. In addition to recording memories, people were encouraged to share any recorded notes for possible inclusion in the commemorative publication and to pass the request onto family and friends. Topics, questions There were a lot of topics to be considered for the book, for instance, some questions asked included, “In what ways were people and or family members involved with the Mormon Miracle Pageant, and in what years?” or, “Did someone have pageant experiences, feelings or observations that impacted their testimony or actions?” Everyone was encouraged to share memories of things such as weather, incidents or people who touched a life or to tell about responsibilities or experiences in production areas of the pageant, such as director, actor, costuming, stage or prop crew, lighting, chaperon or supervisor, make-up, etc. Requests for remembrances of support services such as Ladies’ Guild, language service, ushering, food service, search and rescue or EMT, or cast bus driver. What memories concerning friendships, romances, etc. Where was costume checkout located? Describe costumes. What rules are recalled from being on the ‘hill?’ Were people allowed to walk or sit in order to not be seen by the audience?
How close were the Lamanites allowed to be to the Nephites? What were some rules behind the downstage wings? Was there anything people had to give up or that might be considered a difficulty in order to participate in pageant and was it worth it? Did the pageant impact missionary service? What feelings did someone experience in later summers when they were not longer able to be part of pageant? During the Mormon Miracle Pageant’s half-century span, there have been thousands of good people, unsung and largely unnoticed, heroes working behind the scenes of production. For over 50 years, anonymous service has ever been their watchword. Pageant history book Over time the many collections, recordings, photos, recollections and memories were organized, categorized, edited and have been pressed into the new book, “The Mormon Miracle Pageant” history book. This 600-page, full-color book offers a comprehensive history of the production’s evolution, with a view to honoring the thousands of participants, unsung workers as well as the behind-the-scene services, of which most guests are unaware. Even those who serve in specific sections, such as costuming or food service, likely comprehend little of the particulars going on in other spheres of preparation. With almost 2,000 photos, the historical, hardcover volume covers the inside story of 50 years of miracles and has
now been sent to press. The narrative adds to the richness of the pageant saga and its gospel message. Readers should prepare to learn much, laugh some, and perhaps shed a tear or two as they read the tales of sacrifice and dedication, enjoy fun anecdotes, all while being uplifted with spiritual manifestations shared by cast and crew. About Jorgensen Merilyn Anderson Jorgensen is a native of Manti.

Driver license renewal MERRILL OGDEN
It seems like life is busy for just about everyone. As I make the rounds in my life I run into people who seem to be harried and busy and overscheduled – just like me. It’s true that much of what we busy ourselves with is self-inflicted – but it all seems important at the time. In the midst of all the busy’ness of life, events come along that are unavoidable and inevitable and necessary. One of those events is when it’s time to renew a driver license. Yes, I had to get my driver license renewed. That prospect strikes fear in just about everyone I know. It seems like getting that license isn’t nearly as easy as it used to be. Putting fear aside, I jumped in and prepared myself for the job. I wanted to make sure I was ready and wanted to get it done as efficiently as possible. I don’t even want to tell anyone about the dumb thing I did first off in my quest for renewing my license. Long story short, I logged into a website which I mistakenly thought was the official Utah state website. In my haste to get the job done I entered my credit card information and pressed the send button. Only then did I really pause to think things through and immediately regretted pushing that button. After a couple of phone calls where I pled temporary insanity, I finally got the charge on the credit card reversed. The lesson to be learned: Slow down and make sure you understand where you are and what you’re doing before throwing money out into the Internet world. Anyway, I ended up renewing my license with a personal visit to the state driver license division office — the old fashioned way. I gathered a pile of documentation including my passport, two or three utility bills, social security document, eye doctor exam report, a pint of blood, an eagle feather, rabbit’s foot, and a tuft of unicorn hair. I felt totally ready as I went into the driver license office. By the way, have you noticed that I haven’t been saying “driver’s license.” I’m using what it says on your license and how the official name of the government division is styled: driver license. That being said, how many people do you know who say “driver license?” That’s what I thought: nobody. It’s kind of the same concept with Zion National Park.
So many of us often say Zion’s National Park. It’s maddening to some. And to others of us, we just don’t care. So I went into the license office with my thick file folder filled with all my documentation organized perfectly. I took a number, filled out the application, and sat down next to a woman who told me that she had been there for more than two hours. I gasped. She told me to calm down. She was there with her daughter who was taking the test and had been at it for a long time. Whew! To cut this story short, I was in and out of the place within 45 minutes. How many of my documents and magical artifacts did the driver license division guy want to see? Zero! He looked at my current license and my application paper. Even though he hadn’t asked for anything, I casually opened my file folder so he could see my passport attached to the top of a passel of papers. He scarcely noticed and was apparently unimpressed. My most nervous moment was when I thought he gave me a quick up and down look when he saw the personal weight number I had filled in on the application. I quickly assured him that I was an honest guy and that if I were going to hell it wouldn’t be for lying about my weight on my driver license application. (I don’t know if there was a mirror in there where he could see my crossed fingers behind my back) He took my picture and didn’t allow me to see it for a possible re-take. When I got my license and saw the picture, I decided it was all right. It may come in handy. I think I’ll be able to use it as evidence for a disability claim based on physical disfigurement. When he handed me my temporary paper license and told me that my permanent license would be coming in the mail, I felt like I had won the lottery. I smiled and thanked him as if he had just rescued me from a fate worse than death. As I walked out, I passed the poor souls who were just entering or were filling out their applications. Some of them had file folders or portfolio cases much thicker than mine. I said a silent prayer for all of them and pressed my tuft of unicorn hair into the hand of the sorriest looking one of the lot.

SALT LAKE CITY — Two huge poaching cases have recently been highlighted by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) and those who poach or are considering poaching can learn much from these two cases. Both cases came to the attention of DWR conservation officers in September 2016 when Officer Eric Miller received two tips through Utah’s Turn-in-a-Poacher (UTiP) Hotline at (800) 662-3337. Miller and additional DWR officers were able to break the two huge poaching cases which involved two separate families, the members of which killed multiple animals in Northeastern Utah. Both cases can be read in their entirety online by visiting https://wildlife.utah. gov/officers-on-patrol.html. Thompson family On Sept. 26, 2016, the DWR conservation officer in Roosevelt received a tip that William (Billy) August Thompson had possibly killed a large bull elk and several cow elk in Uintah and Duchesne counties. The tip launched two weeks of interviews and surveillance. Through their efforts, DWR of-
ficers determined the tip was accurate: William had likely killed a large trophy bull elk in the Pigeon Water area of Duchesne County and several cow elk in Tridell, Uintah County. Officers interviewed William and his wife, Jennifer. William admitted to illegally killing at least three bull elk, two cow elk and a deer in Tridell. But the poaching wasn’t limited to William. Officers also learned that Jennifer had illegally killed one cow elk and one deer in the same area. Officers then seized three sets of bull elk antlers, meat from two elk, one rifle and a bow from the Thompson home. William admitted helping George Walsh, Jennifer’s stepfather from East Meadow, NY; kill a buck deer, a doe deer and a cow elk in Tridell, all without legal tags. The total animals William admitted killing included four bull elk (including two trophy bulls), four cow elk and two buck deer. William, who is a convicted felon, also admitted to killing most of the animals with a Please see POACHING, Page A4
William Thompson poses by one of the bull elk he stole from legal hunters during a poaching spree in fall 2016. William will pay almost $17,000 in restitution and fines, serve 107 days in jail and be on probation for 36 months. He may lose hunting privileges for the next 65 years in 47 states, including Utah, which are part of the Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact. (Photo courtesy of the Utah DWR)

POACHING From A3
rifle, which he isn’t permitted to have. He also admitted to fraudulently buying duplicate tags to put on additional animals, buying a tag in his grandfather’s name, killing and tagging a trophy bull with his wife’s tag, and helping her kill a cow elk and a doe deer. Jennifer admitted to killing the cow elk and the doe deer. New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) officers interviewed George Walsh on Oct. 18, 2016. At first, Walsh denied killing anything in Utah. After the officers found out about 40 pounds of elk meat at his home, Walsh then admitted the meat was from Utah. NYSDEC officers seized the elk meat and issued Walsh a citation for illegal possession of big game. In January and March 2018, the Thompsons pleaded guilty to all charges against them. William received a fine of $500 and was ordered to pay $16,350 to the state’s Help Stop Poaching fund. William was also placed on probation for 36 months and ordered to serve 107 days in Duchesne and Uintah County jails. He could lose his hunting and fishing privileges in Utah and 46 other states involved in the Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact for 65 years. Jennifer received a fine of $500 and was ordered to pay $1,900 to the Help Stop Poaching fund. She was placed on probation for 36 months and ordered to serve 10 days in Uintah County Jail. She could lose her hunting privileges in all the states involved in the Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact for 17 years. Walsh is still going through the court process. If convicted, he could pay up to $1,550 to the Help Stop Poaching fund, serve jail time and lose his hunting privileges for 17 years. Swenson family The DWR conservation officer in Roosevelt, received a tip from Utah’s Turn-ina-Poacher phone hotline on Sept. 23, 2016, which indicated that a convicted felon, Kenneth (Kenny) Swenson Jr., was poaching cow elk and pheasants in nearby Duchesne County. The officer quickly confirmed that Swenson was a felon and should not be in possession of firearms. The officer also confirmed that Swenson did not have any valid hunting licenses for 2016. Several other law enforcement agencies were also searching for Swenson. He was a known drug dealer and was rumored to be stealing items within Uintah Basin. Swenson did not have a current address and was difficult to locate, but was eventually discovered through the use of Facebook and Google Earth. As the case unfolded, it was apparent that he had killed more than cow elk and had killed a trophy bull elk on the Wasatch limited-entry unit near Strawberry Reservoir, Wasatch County. Swenson had also assisted his 12-year-old son and 15-year-old stepson in killing two trophy bull elk on the South Slope Yellowstone/ Bonanza/Vernal unit in Duchesne County. He also didn’t stop at illegally harvesting elk. He killed two buck deer in the Book Cliffs limited-entry unit in Uintah County and assisted his wife, Marie Swenson, in killing a large buck in the same area. The animals were all killed without legal permits. Some of the animals were tagged with Ute Tribe big game tags, which Swenson had fraudu-
Marva B. Olsen 1929~2018 FOUNTAIN GREEN-Marva Belliston Olsen passed away in the early morning June 6, 2018, at her daughterʼs home in Spring City, UT. It brings great comfort to know she is having a grand and joyous reunion with treasured family and friends once lost beyond the veil. Marva was born Sept. 5, 1929, in Nephi, UT; as the fourth of what would total six children to Alva Read Belliston and Harriett (Hattie) Broadhead Belliston. She was married to Jay Lawrence Olsen, Fountain Green, Nov. 10, 1948, in the Manti LDS Temple. Together, they had seven children, Steven (Candy) Olsen, South Jordan; David (Jackie) Olsen (predeceased), Margie (Rod) Ostler, Orem; Laura (Jeff) Watson, Spring City; Susan Olsen (predeceased), Connie (Wayne) Jarrett, Nephi; and Allen (Brenda) Olsen, Fountain Green. She has 26 grandchildren, 63 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson. Energy, sharp wit and humor and a pure love of life and of people lit up the entire room anywhere Marva went. Ever loyal to the familyʼs sheep and farming business, she always made her love of lambs and sheep very apparent. And she didnʼt just love collecting sheep-themed decor. She personally cared for countless baby lambs each spring that may not have otherwise survived - symbolic of the concern and sensitivity she showed when she knew of someone in need. Faithfully, Marva spent her life serving her family and her community. Her family frequently looked forward to her signature spudnuts, raisin-filled cookies, and nut and raisin cake with caramel frosting for birthdays. She also "served" as the "family dentist," pulling countless loose teeth for her children and grandchildren who often didnʼt want anyone else to even try. She sacrificed most of her time for personal pursuits dedicated instead to various local ward and stake callings in the LDS Church. She also served for close to 12 years with her husband, Jay, in callings at the Manti LDS Temple. Jay and Marva would have celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary on Nov. 10th of this year. Marva is survived by siblings, Ruth Howard and Joe Kenneth Swenson Jr. shows the head and antlers of a bull elk he stole from legal hunters during (Norma) Belliston, St. George. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Dee, a family poaching spree in fall 2016. For his role in the spree, Swenson could pay as much as Duane, and Kent Belliston, and brother-in-law, Bill $24,000 in restitution and fines and serve up to 10 years in prison. He’s also lost his hunting Howard. privileges for at least the next 28 years in the 47 states, including Utah, which are part of the Funeral services were held June 11 in the Fountain Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact.

When finally arrested, Mr. Swenson was found in possession of two handguns and several vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana, heroin, pills and methamphetamine. He was interviewed by a DWR investigator and admitted to killing, or assisting in the killing of three elk and two deer. DWR investigators conducted 18 interviews related to the case, during which Marie Swenson admitted to killing a large buck deer in the Book Cliffs. Having gathered enough evidence, DWR officers served 14 search warrants on several buildings, vehicles, phones, GPS units and Facebook profiles. One of the searches, conducted in an RV at Swenson’s residence, produced nearly 50 firearms that Swenson used for hunting. A rifle suspected of being used to kill the trophy elk in Wasatch and the deer in the Book Cliffs was seized. Later, it was discovered many of the firearms were stolen. Kenny Swenson pleaded guilty in Duchesne County
struction of Protected Wildlife, both third-degree felonies on Dec. 11, 2017. He was ordered to pay $16,000 dollars to the Help Stop Poaching fund and sentenced to no more than five years in prison for each charge. He also lost all his hunting privileges for 28 years. He will still face charges in Wasatch County, where he could pay up to $8,000 in restitution and lose an additional 14 years of hunting privileges. The two Class A misdemeanor charges of Wanton Destruction of Protected Wildlife and other drug-related charges in Uintah County were dismissed because Swenson is currently in federal prison in Sheridan, OR. Marie Swenson pleaded guilty in Uintah County to one count of Wanton Destruction of Protected Wildlife, a Class B misdemeanor on Jan. 11, 2018. She was ordered to pay $400 to the Help Stop Poaching fund. She lost her big game hunting privileges for three years.

Third man accused of child sex abuse from Utah doomsday group SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A third man has been charged with child sexual abuse in connection with a Utah doomsday group that believed in polygamy and took child brides. Prosecutor Kevin Daniels said Friday that 34-year-old Robert Shane Roe of California was a follower who met the two
founders in a Facebook group and was then given a five-yearold girl related to one of them as a bride. Roe was charged Thursday with sodomy of a child. No attorney is listed in court documents for Roe. Daniels says Roe acknowledges being alone with the girl
but denies the sexual abuse. The girl becomes the third alleged victim. Prosecutors say the two founders who met Roe formed a group called the Knights of the Crystal Blade based on arcane Mormon ideas long abandoned by the mainstream LDS Church.

PAGEANT From A1
the Food Court located at 200 North Main. Visitors are asked to clean up after themselves and carry out any garbage brought into the area. Plan to stay overnight in Manti the night of the pageant as traffic will be exceptionally congested at the conclusion of the production. While in town many visitors spend a night or two in one of the local bed and breakfasts, or tour the grounds of the historic Manti LDS Temple, built in 1888. Some visitors feel that staying at a bed and breakfast adds to the experience, providing a unique local perspective, plus great service. Whether choosing a bed and breakfast, hotel, or campground, be sure to make reservations well in advance. Camping at Manti City Park,
200 North 300 West, is allowed only during the pageant on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations are not taken. Restroom facilities are available, but no showers. There is a fee, so campers should go ahead and set up tents or trailers and a campfee collector will visit the site to collect. The park is within walking distance of the temple grounds. Be sure to take some time before or after the pageant to explore the region. Take a scenic drive, rent ATVs, check out the nearby fishing, hiking and mountain biking trails or visit one of the museums, unique boutiques or craft shops. Those who are not familiar with the story of The Book of Mormon, may want to learn a bit about its history before or after attending the pageant. Background information can be obtained from locals, the
onsite missionaries or members of the LDS Church. Copies of The Book of Mormon can be checked out from the library in Ephraim, Mt. Pleasant or Manti or interested persons can also go online and visit https://history.lds.org/ or https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm. The history book, by Merilyn Jorgensen, pageant historian, which relates how the Mormon Miracle Pageant came to be, along with many stories and pictures has been sent to press and can now be ordered.
