Jorgensen’s — More now than ever Jorgensen’s Honda has long been one of the leading motorcycle and ATV dealerships and repair centers in the state. However, Jorgensen’s offers a lot more for people who want to have fun. A lot of people enjoy traveling in their RVs and camp trailers, but the hassle of getting one ready for a trip can be a drag. Not at Jorgensen’s, where they have a one-stop solution for prepping RVs and trailers. Tucked behind Jorgensen’s is an island that has two dump stations, fresh water refilling, propane recharging and even washing services. “We do just about all repairs,” said Chuck Lipsey, RV tech at Jorgensen’s. He said in addition to mechanical maintenance, Jorgensen’s officers siding, roofing and other repairs to keep RVs functional and comfortable. “If you don’t want to do it, I’ll take care of it for you,” Lipsey said. He said while he deals with the required maintenance and prep on RVs, families can enjoy a game of bowling. Outdoor recreation is a place where people build memories. In the past it’s been difficult to capture the fun of ATVs, waterskies and other outdoor sports. However, with the innovation of the GoPro camera system, people can capture their most extreme sports in high definition video to share with friends and family for years to come.

Brock Hansen stocks a GoPro camera at Jorgensen’s Honda in Richfield. Hansen said the innovation of GoPro cameras allow people who are interested in preserving their outdoor recreation experiences a way to do so in high definition video.

“There are all kinds of mounts available for them,” said Brock Hansen, sales specialist. He said with the right equipment, GoPro cameras can be used anywhere, including underwater. Capturing video has also seen improvements with the popularity of radio-controlled vehicles. Jorgensen’s offers radio controlled drones and copters that can be used to film video. Some of the drones can even be controlled using a tablet.

For those who prefer to keep their RC adventures grounded, Jorgensen’s has a huge selection of remote controlled cars for every interest and skill level, from beginners to experienced racers. “We even have a track for people to use,” said Colton Thompson, RC specialist. The track, located east of Cove View OTHERS THOUGHT IMPOSSIBLE Golf Course, is open to people to use at no charge. “It’s a lot better than driving them up and down the street,” Thompson said. Local races are organized at the track through text messages and social media. He said RC cars have a wide range of products available, from electric to gas powered. Cars are specialized for many different applications, including sand, climbing and racing. Jorgensen’s also offers expert support and advice when it comes to exploring the RC hobby.

Kick off your boots and stay a while Located on a hilltop in Torrey at the junction of Scenic Byways 12 and 24, nestled between Capitol Reef National Park and the Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument, the Broken Spur Inn & Steakhouse offers travelers a great place to kick off their boots, enjoy great steak and the best views in town. The 50-room motel with its adjoining steakhouse also boasts an indoor pool and hot tub, gift shop with locally crafted goods, beauty salon and conference center. “Our goal is to make your stay here as comfortable as possible — kick off your boots and stay awhile and let the Broken Spur Inn be your home away from home,” said Francine Hallows, who owns the inn, along with her husband Gary. “Our steaks are cut daily in our steakhouse and our beef is aged to perfection. Our hilltop location has the best views in town and because we are located away from the main highway. It is a quiet oasis.” A lifelong cattle rancher and one-time president of the Utah Cattleman’s Association, Gary has always taken pride in good beef cattle, and always had a dream of one day owning his own steakhouse.

“When the Sandstone Inn came up for sale in 2011, he suggested we buy it,” Francine said. “It was a giant leap, but after much consideration [we] took the plunge, and purchased it in August of 2012.” Being in business is much better with a partner, so Travis and Holly VanOrden joined the business and the Broken Spur Inn & Steakhouse has been creating a unique stay for travelers in Wayne County since spring 2013. Francine said that experience is continuing to improve as additional improvements, including a bakery, Laundromat and a new entryway with big pole beams and metallic horses have been ongoing this winter. “Our future goals would be to continue to make the Broken Spur Inn & Steakhouse not just a great place to stay, but a destination for guests to want to come,” Francine said. “We want guests to feel at home and that they are important to us.” Francine said the business also prides itself on providing a boost to Wayne County’s bustling travel-oriented economy. “We employ approximately 20 people throughout the season, including housekeeping, laundry, waitressing, dish washing, front desk and bakery help,” Francine said. “We are glad to be able to help with local employment.”

The Richfield Reaper celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2013. In 125 years, the paper has seen numerous changes and weathered many challenges. In more than a century, the mission of The Reaper hasn’t changed — to provide the very best in quality community journalism to the residents of south central Utah. Since the founding of the United States, newspapers have served as one of the cornerstones of how representative democracy works. The freedom of speech and press were guaranteed to the American people in the same breath as freedom of religion. Even with the transformative popularity of the Internet, it is not a substitute for a thriving local newspaper. The Internet is merely a tool, but if one wants reliable information from a source that is responsible, the local newspaper is still the best bet. When people are looking for information about the region, the first place they come is to the newspaper. Newspapers and readers form a symbiosis. Newspapers keep elected and law enforcement officials accountable, while the readers hold the publication accountable for what it prints. The result is that people who read the paper understand more about the world around them in terms that are factual, documented and in context rather than the result of gossip. While not as immediate as television or radio, newspapers are still the place where people turn to get in-depth stories. In the last decade, the Internet has also become a powerful player in the mass media, but it has an inherent unreliability as a source of information. In 125 years, many things have changed for The Richfield Reaper. There was a time when printing a picture was a difficult process and color was unheard of, but now those things are common. The Reaper was one of the first local businesses to have a continually updated and maintained website, which serves as a hub of information for both locals and those seeking information about the area. This led the paper to branch out into social media with a Facebook page. The future of the newspaper is going to continue with changes, growth and enhancements to better serve the readership. Starting this February, The Reaper will become the regional distributor of The Deseret News National Edition and the LDS Church News. These publications will be included in area subscribers’ weekly copies of The Richfield Reaper. The Deseret News National Edition is a weekly publication with stories based on family values, faith and other general interest topics. The LDS Church News contains material focused on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Andy’s Market

When Crisp Grocery closed up shop in 2011, it was an end of an era in Monroe — one that native John Hansen said he and his wife Trudy hated to see disappear. “We took the loss of the grocery store kind of personal,” said Hansen, who grew up in Monroe and now resides in the Woods Cross area. “When the grocery store was going out of business, we had a lot of ideas how they could change things to make it better. We love Monroe, and we thought we had an idea that will work.” From those small ideas, Hansen said the concept bloomed, he purchased the old Crisp Grocery building in October 2012, and remodeled it to become a new grocery store. The product of that investment, Andy’s Market opened its doors to the public Feb. 2, 2013. “I grew up going to Andy’s in Monroe,” Hansen said. They had penny candies and high quality cuts at the meat counter, I absolutely loved it. I can’t think of any other name more fitting, so I named the store in memory of Andy’s Market and Andy Winget who owned it. He was one of my heroes growing up.” Hansen said he wants Andy’s Market to be more than just a grocery store in Monroe, he said he wants it to become a staple in town. “I feel like it’s become a community gathering place,” Hansen said. “It’s hard for me to see businesses on Main Street go away, and I hope this has helped to reverse that. I love to see people stay home and shop.”


Hansen said he feels since Crisp Grocery and Lin’s both disappeared over the past few years, that people had been missing a grocery store that has more of a hometown feel, and he hopes the introduction of Andy’s filled that void. Along with the groceries, Hansen said Andy’s features a bakery, a grill, a craft and consignment corner where people can sell homemade items, and a bookstore and exchange. According to Hansen, the book exchange and consignment shelves opened along with the groceries, followed by the bakery and grill departments. “We are very service oriented as well,” Hansen said. He said Andy’s has a home delivery service especially in the Monroe Area. “We are willing to deliver to other areas as well, but will combine those orders and deliver only one or two times a week.” Hansen said a personal shopper program is also available at the store, with conditions for delivery being that the customer must purchase at least $25 of goods per order. “For the personal shopper, we try to accommodate anyone at any time, but we are staffed for doing it in the late afternoon or early evening,” Hansen said. “That’s the type of service Andy used to provide, and I want to bring that back to this area,” Hansen said. “We hope to create strategic partners with people in the valley, and offer something that people feel like they have an invested stake in and can enjoy.”

T h s e e k D a i f M f e y r l e i n m c e a F Our Values are Your Values ... Come Feel the Difference!

Jorgensen Ford is a family owned and operated business — starting at the top with Dennis and Mike Jorgensen. The Jorgensen family has owned the Ford franchise in Richfield since 1997. It was a natural for them because of their experience in successfully building their Honda motorcycle dealership from a modest beginning to becoming one of the largest ATV dealers in the western United States. It was a no-brainer to pick up the Ford dealership because of the strength of the brand in rural America. The Ford truck line is the powerhouse brand in central Utah and has been such for decades. The new ultra modern and high tech line of Ford cars and SUV products powered by the economical and powerful EcoBoost family of engines has done nothing but enhance the Ford mystique in our area. The family ties at Jorgensen Ford do not end with the ownership of the company. Jeff Brewer, general manager of Jorgensen Ford, works closely with his son JJ Brewer, a salesman at the dealership. “It has been very rewarding teaching my son the ropes of an exciting and challenging occupation,” said Jeff Brewer. “Understanding the intricacies of the auto business takes years, but the rewards of doing it right serve our customers well and brings satisfaction and success to the dealership.” The family ties continue at Jorgensen Ford with Jay Johns, parts and service director, who works closely with his son Justin Johns, service adviser at the dealership. The bottom line of these relationships is a better buying and service experience at Jorgensen Ford.

Jeff Brewer, left, general manager, and son JJ Brewer, in sales at the dealership, bring their positive values and ethics to each sales transaction at Jorgensen Ford.

“Family takes care of family and that includes our extended family of customers,” Brewer said. Jorgensen Ford keeps this commitment with their customers in a variety of ways — including making cars available for customers to use when their vehicle is in for a collision repair or service. Customer needs are met because that is what the Jorgensen Ford family believes is the right thing to do. Jorgensen’s shares the same philosophy when it comes to service — knowing that their service department is second to none. They strive for total customer satisfaction. They build bridges with customers through the entire sales process. “We beat Salt Lake City prices and we invite you to shop and compare,” Brewer said. He said with access to prime, subprime and special finance lenders, the Jorgensen sales team will work diligently to get their customers into a new car. “Local service and local values mean you will get what you need, not pushed into things you don’t want,” Brewer said. “The Jorgensen difference really does make a better car buying experience.”

Speed Queen washing machines are the only brand still on the market that still offers the consumer the choice to select how much water they use to clean their clothing. As of Jan. 1, 2015, federal restrictions on the amount of water used in washing machines goes into effect, and other brands have already been producing machines that comply with these new energy efficiency standards. “By this time next year, there won’t even be an option,” said Ryan Barclay, appliance manager at Ogden’s Superstore. Barclay said the new energy efficient machines are effective at cleaning a regular load of laundry with less water. However, he said with larger loads and dirtier clothes, the newer models aren’t as efficient at getting the job done. “With really dirty clothes, consumers aren’t realizing the efficiency savings because they are having to wash multiple times to get their clothes clean,” Barclay said. He said many consumers are buying the Speed Queen machines because they are realizing they provide them more control of how they wash their clothes.

Burns Saddlery


Wednesday/Thursday, January 29/30, 2014

AUTHENTIC & REAL SINCE 1876 BURNS SADDLERY & BURNS COWBOY SHOP A Family Legacy Honoring Traditions of the West BURNS CUSTOM BOOTS, HATS, & SADDLES Same Family Owned Since 1876 Burns Saddlery headquartered in Salina Utah is the oldest same family owned western retail business in the world. Miles Lamonie Burns founded Burns in 1876. “Moan” was a cowboy, fine leather craftsman, blacksmith, musician, husband, father, and visionary. His dream of settling a territory in Utah started in Nephi and ended up at the gateway of Capitol Reef near Torrey where he opened the first Burns retail shop in the spring of 1876. In its 138 years, Burns has had six different shop names, six generations of ownership, and one family, one legacy, one culture: COWBOY. Burns has locations in Salina Utah, Park City Utah, Carmel by-the-Sea California, and now their newest location, in Fashion Island, Newport Beach, CA. Generations 5 and 6 along with many talented team members continue the Burns cowboy legacy, with multiple operations including four retail stores, three mobile units, and two manufacturing facilities that build custom saddles and quality hats from the ground up. Generation five owners, Scott and Danna Burns- Shaw, expanded the business 20 years ago when they hauled product on the road, setting up and selling at equestrian events. The business soon grew to three rigs hauling from California to Texas, representing Burns Saddlery at world-class horse events.

Burns Saddlery, a landmark on Salina, Utah’s Main Street, specializes in custom, handmade cowboy boots, cowboy hats and saddles. Burns Custom Saddles and Burns Custom Hats are all custom handmade by Burns Team Members in Salina, UT, carrying on the tradition of Miles Lamonie Burns started in 1876. The store carries everything for horse and rider. Stop by and let us outfit you, today.


THE CUSTOM LEATHER AND CUSTOM HAT TEAMS TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN THEIR UNIQUE CUSTOM DESIGNS The Burns Custom Leather team will custom-create anything-- the sky is the limit, saddles, photo albums, pocket books. If you have the vision Burns can make it happen. Burns specializes in custom, hand-made saddles and belts. The client can help design their own product. Burns has a talented design team to direct clients through the process. The Custom Leather team takes pride in quick turnaround and quality, quality, quality. Many hometown ranchers use the products along with numerous clients across the western United States.

In 2008 Scott and Danna moved from Salina to start the next Burns adventure in Park City Utah. Burns represented many parts of the western industry; manufacturing, retail, wholesale, and horse events. Park City, a resort town, was a new medium, selling to tourists, instead of working cowboys. This location inspired another storefront in Carmel by-the-Sea, CA and the newest location in Newport Beach, CA. The Cowboy Shop and 1876 inventory is very different from the Salina location: custom made boots designed in house, handcrafted leather belts, solid sterling silver and gold buckles, unique oneof-a-kind bags, jackets, and fine jewelry all handmade by outstanding western artists. Burns is known for the best selection of quality boots with professional service to ensure proper fit.

Jake and Olin Hannum are also a big part of Burns calf roping and bulldogging saddle designs. Burns Custom Hats can be custom made to your style. The hatters only use premium rabbit blend and beaver bodies. These hats will last a lifetime. Burns listens to the customer and is dedicated to meeting all of their needs.

Better Your Life With Great Products and Service

Brennon Nielson, left, and Toni Brewer are the ones to see for guns and other sporting goods equipment. Larsen’s has expanded its sporting goods area to include a larger variety of merchandise.

Jeremy Globke, left, service technician, and Brandon Bateman, parts manager at Larsen’s, are better able to handle sales and service for everything from chain saws and trimmers to riding lawn mowers and tillers. The experts at Larsen’s can help customers select the right tools for the job.

Larsen’s Ace Hardware in Richfield is the place to go for prod-

ucts to get the job done and to have time to enjoy life to its fullest. There are few stores in south central Utah that carry the diverse product lines as does that of Larsen’s. They have what the do-it-yourself builder needs for a variety of household projects, as well as fun products for the garden, great fishing tackle and an expanded sporting goods department. The sporting goods area at Larsen’s is a larger and easier place for shoppers to find the items for which they are looking. The actual gun display area is now expanded with even more guns and ammunition to be found. The shooting sport accessory area is also larger with more of what today’s hunters need to enhance their shooting skills. One area that will be greatly appreciated this spring is the service center adjacent to the garden center. The new service center is designed to keep your chain saws, mowers, tillers and trimmers running for spring and summer yard projects. The remodeling of the center allows for a better and more secure area for customer repair items as well as an increase in accessories and parts. One of the great success stories at Larsen’s has been their greenhouse area. Every year, they expand the square footage available to grow plants, and every year the market for those plants has expanded as well. Larsen’s philosophy has been to grow plants on the premises, which means no freight or shipping issues. This results in savings that can be passed on to customers. When energy bills seem to be way too high, Larsen’s Ace is the place to call. The insulation team at Larsen’s can make any home more energy efficient — summer or winter. The trick is having the right insulation in the right places in the home. Many times, having a properly insulated attic can make the difference with minimal cost to install — and most of the time, attic insulation projects take only one day to complete. Like any business, success hinges on their people and Larsen’s Ace Hardware is no different. Larsen’s has the kind of expert advice and product knowledge necessary to help their customers have the best possible buying and building experience.

With a large variety of cabinet designs and granite counter tops to choose from, Michael D. Sharp of Larsen’s Ace Hardware can help customers get just the look they want when building or remodeling their kitchens.

Larsen’s Ace Hardware insulation crew member Alonso Terrazas blows fiberglass insulation into a sealed off wall space at C&L Storage in Richfield. Properly installed foam and fiberglass fill added to any living space can help increase energy efficiency — and insulation manager Kenley Coleman and his team can make it happen.

Welcome to Wayne County, Utah Wayne County is working to enhance visitors’ experiences as they come from all around the world. With Capitol Reef on one side, and a National Scenic Byway on State Route 12, one of Wayne County’s top industries is tourism. Currently the county is pursuing a funding package with the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board to create an information center in Torrey. Located at the junction of State Route 12 and State Route 24, the center will act as a hub for tourists to find information about all that Wayne County has to offer. In conjunction with the information center, the county’s travel council is developing maps for a trail system for use by both visitors and locals.

During 2013, the Wayne County Travel Council and the city of Torrey brought the area into the international spotlight by hosting one of the anchor points of the Tour of Utah. The tour, which made its first foray into southern Utah in 2013, is one of five Union Cycliste Internationale sanctioned races in the United States.

In 2014 the county is planning for a return appearance of the tour, as well as its own Capitol Reef Classic, a two-day stage bicycle race. The county is also planning to host several special events through 2014, including the Utah Symphony, the Wayne County Fair and Torrey Town Apple Days. Wayne County has also seen two proposals for veterans memorials come to fruition in 2013. Lyman Town constructed a memorial, while Loa Town is currently building a memorial on its Main Street.

What’s in it for you?

Upcoming 2014 Events: Torrey Town Apple Days in July; Wayne County Fair, August 11-16.

’S F F I ER T H N S E Y T EM It is our mission N T U A O T and our duty as a member S C R N IE of Sevier County Sheriff’s Office SIO S I SEV M to serve the county with integrity, courage,

c fi f O

dedication, pride, and showing compassion when appropriate. As a team we will protect the rights and welfare of the citizens of our county. We will be professional as we serve with honor and sacrificing our time and resources to improving the quality of life for the public we serve and the county we live in.

The Sevier County Jail The Sevier County Jail is a place the General Public rarely thinks about unless they know someone who is incarcerated. The jail provides inmates with: nutritious meals, clean clothing, clean bedding, board games, hygiene products and opportunities to shower and shave, television, access to telephones, religious meetings, and access to a GED program. The jail hires some of the better behaved inmates for janitorial duties. They get paid anywhere from $20 to $30 a month. Some luxuries are allowed to inmates as management tools. It gives them incentives to behave or they will lose certain privileges. The jail can hold a maximum of 146 inmates; 70 of the 146 beds are occupied by State Inmates. Sevier County receives $1.2 Million annually for housing the State Inmates in the Sevier County Jail. At one time this summer we had 142 inmates, just 4 beds shy of being full. In the past year we have had a total of 1,062 inmates booked. 167 of the 1,062 were repeat offenders, some returning to jail multiple times. The total jail time served this year is 41,509 days, making an average inmate stay of 39 days.

The Sevier County Alcohol & Drug Program The Sevier County Alcohol & Drug Program is a vital part of the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office. The staff, including Virginia Stewart, LSUDC & Program Director; Keith Hayes, SUDC Intern; & Secretary Julie Tebbs, work hard to help any person with a substance abuse problem. The Program works with between 80 & 100 clients per year. Treatment is individualized to meet the needs of each client, and the number of clients can change frequently. Different programs associated with the A&D program include: Individual Counseling, Life Skills classes, Prime For Life Alcohol & Drug Offender School & Social Detoxes. The staff is available for all Law Enforcement Agencies & all Public Entities for help with Educational Presentations. Our goal is to help People with addiction find a new direction.

Sevier County Patrol Division The patrol division has 14 full time deputies and 5 detectives who provide 24 hour coverage and answered 5,498 calls in 2013. The sheriff’s office handles court security and civil process and has 5 clerical staff members.

The Sevier County Animal Shelter The Sevier County Animal Shelter provides shelter needs for all kinds of animals in Sevier County, from the smallest kittens all the way to horses. The animals typically stay until the owners come and pick up their pets. Sevier County ordinance allows the animals to be held for 3 business days. If no one claims the animals after the 3 days, we begin looking for a new home for them. We work with the public in searching for their pets, finding their new pet, and with animal rescue groups from all over the country to make sure the pets go to a good home. We do everything we can to adopt them to a caring home. Search for us on Facebook to find out more info on the animals at the Sevier County Animal Shelter.

Search and Rescue Home of the Utah Search and Rescue Conference. 130 + Search and Rescue team members from 19 different counties participated during the 2013 conference. From dive training, to first aid, helicopter searches and landing and more, this has become the premier conference for search and rescue in the State of Utah. This year in Search and Rescue, a new set of statewide training standards were developed and adopted by the Utah Sheriffs’ Association. Sevier County continues to be on the forefront of Search and Rescue.

EMS Sevier County EMS is comprised of four squads and an inter-facility transport unit. The squads are geographically oriented at the Richfield, Salina, Monroe and Koosharem areas. Available are 10 ambulances that respond to all emergency situations. We run three additional response vehicles that help fulfill emergency needs and special incidences. Sevier County EMS employs 75+ EMTs to cover the four squads and transports 24 hours a day 365 days a year. The services that we provide are 911 medical responses, inter-facility transports, standby for High School sports and other special events. CPR and First Aid courses are available throughout the year. We assist more than 1,400 patients and standby events every year.

Sherrie Okerlund Sherrie Okerlund has decided to retire from Sevier County EMS. Sherrie certified as an EMT in 1993. Sherrie gave more than 20 years of service to the citizens of Sevier County. We want to take this time to thank Sherrie for her service and friendship.

I am very enthused to be the new Mayor of Richfield City. I have lived here all my life and love our city. The past mayor, council, city administrator and employees have worked hard to make 2013 a year of great accomplishment. The airport expansion is well on its way to completion, important street and walking path projects came in under budget, our 3.7 million gallon steel water tank was refurbished, and we all celebrated the completion of our beautiful Veterans Memorial. It’s great to look back, but our focus is now on the future. As Richfield celebrates its sesquicentennial in 2014, we see a year filled with progress; a year where all our efforts will be aimed at enhancing the quality of life of our citizens and visitors. Join us in making this new year one of exciting accomplishments. — Mayor Dave Ogden

This project improved stream channels, stream bank stability, and reconstructed some sections of the road for improved safety and road surface. Recent flooding created the need for these improvements.

BMX Racing Track

A more permanent location was developed at the county fairgrounds for youth BMX racing. This track will bring hundreds of racers to Sevier County for competition every year. Combined with the Blackhawk Arena in Salina, BMX activities are now available throughout the year. All youths are welcome to use this track.

Horse Racing Track Resurfacing

New cover material donated by Hales Sand & Gravel/Staker Parson was placed on the track significantly improving the surface for horse related activities such as training and racing. Sevier County is home to the nicest track in south central Utah.

Quitchupah Road

In a $29 million financial partnership with Arch Coal, this road connects the SUFCO Mine to State Highway 10 into Emery County. The road reduces the haul length for trucks in an effort to support the critical mining and trucking industries in Sevier County.

Whistle Stop Trailhead

In partnership with Big Rock Candy Mountain, Utah State Parks and Recreation, and US National Parks, Sevier County developed a 2-acre trailhead to help with access to the Candy Mountain Express Pathway, the Sevier River, and the ATV trail system.
