D’Lux Tan is a Gem in Tooele Written by Claudette Haskell


ne tanning salon in Tooele has expanded the meaning of what a tanning salon can be. D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy offers more than just tanning. It provides a wonderful spa-like experience. Their Body Therapy Beds bring a taste of a posh Park City spa to a town that didn’t even know they needed it. They have a Hydro Massage bed that is filled with heated water. This bed will relax and soothe your sore, aching muscles, as you lay atop of what looks a little like a water bed and melt away your troubled day. You can experience a full-body massage or focus on a specific area. After that you can try out the Hydration Station. “People always ask me what the space pod in the back is” Melyssa Holbrook, owner of D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy says,

Melyssa Holbrook and Katie Zubko instruct customers on proper use of tanning lotions.

“But once people try it they are hooked! No one in Tooele has ever seen anything like this. It’s pretty new to Utah. I think there may be one other in Salt Lake City.” What it does for your skin is close to a miracle. It hydrates and moisturizes dry skin while also enriching your body with vitamins and minerals. “The Hydration Station is the perfect answer to living in this dry desert climate” she says. Once you have relaxed in the massage

bed and treated your skin to a much needed pampering, then you can move to the Collagen Bed. “Most of my employees are using this bed” says Holbrook “If I could commit to the time I would be using it too. This bed really takes a commitment. It is red light therapy, 633 Nm on the light spectrum scale. That probably doesn’t mean much to most

cott at takes a different approach to fixing computers. Most of the time, when you take your computer Scott Lindsay to a repair shop, and especially if your system is just running slow, they will most likely tell you to add more memory. This may be the case sometimes, but most of the time it is your software slowing down your system and not a hardware issue. Adding memory will improve the speed, but it will return to its slow state within a couple weeks because the real issues were not addressed. As a Microsoft software expert, I am capable of removing unneeded files, programs and settings that are considered temporary and not integral to running the computer. Also, because of my knowledge of Microsoft software, I can tailor each program so they work together seamlessly giving you greater speed and reliability. There are literally hundreds of options located in each of Microsoft’s programs, and I know how to set them so you get full performance, excellent dependability and a system that runs the way you need it to, when you need it. is mobile and does most repairs in your home or workplace. Who really wants to unhook their computer from the myriad of wires and cables, lift the box to the car and haul it to the repair shop? I save you time and back pain by coming to you, with never a charge for the trip.

Are you ever concerned what someone is doing on your system? When you take it to a shop, you have no idea what they do or don’t do. I encourage you if you desire, to pull up a chair and sit beside me as I work. That way, if you have any questions, I can address them right then. You may even have specific questions about your system. I can easily walk you through to improve your understanding. I am all about teaching people how to use the computer better. My articles, under the “Tech Guru” heading in the “Hometown” section of the Tooele Transcript Bulletin appear every Thursday and are designed to further your knowledge about using the computer so you can be more proficient, better organized, highly professional and take care of issues right away when they arise. My book: “100 Computer Articles to Make You an Expert” is a compilation of all my published articles in the Tooele Transcript Bulletin and also includes a section called: “Powerful Microsoft Software Tips” where I provide troubleshooting and time-saving tips to help further develop the “Power User” inside of you. I have been teaching people about Microsoft software for more than 15 years and have helped thousands become excellent computer users. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, everyone can learn. Whether you need your system tuned up, viruses removed, upgraded to the newest operating system or reinstalling your current one, installing a wired or wireless network, upgrading your Office software or even if you need a training session about specific things you want to learn, I can help you and I guarantee all my work. I do not charge to come to your home or work to diagnose your computer’s problems so call me now and I’ll get to you right away. If you own a business, could your employees get more done if their computer ran better? This is my specialty. Nothing is more irritating to the boss when they see an employee doing nothing while waiting for their computer to catch up with their demands. I also provide training for employees so they can improve their productivity enough the first year for you to pay them for a two week vacation! If you want a free demonstration, just give me a call or email me and I can set it up for you. Everyone that uses the computer in your company will benefit from this, including you. Nothing is more important to me in my business life than helping people learn the computer better. Give me a call today and let’s see what I can do for you. Whether I’m helping you learn the computer better or just performing repairs, I promise to give you the best service you’ve had in a long, long time.

Note of Thanks to Tooele I would like to thank the people of Tooele and the surrounding communities for being such wonderful hosts while my Army Reserve unit conducted two weeks of training at the Tooele Army Depot starting June 25. Any time our soldiers went into town they were treated with respect and dignity. Parents encouraged their children to come up to us and say thanks. Walmart and Walgreens gave us donations of bottled water and treats. The movie theater gave us discounted tickets and one wonderful individual gave us $100 to pay for our supper one night. The people that worked at the depot were some of the nicest people I have ever met. A lot of communities say they are patriotic and support the troops, but the people of Tooele quietly proved it. I hope to return some day and enjoy Tooele once more. Thank you and God bless. Maj. Mike Lindvall White Bear Lake, Minn.

Employee Katie Zubko explains which type of bed will suit the customer best.

Tan Continued from page 1 people, but it’s the same technology that Dermatologists and NASA have been using for years in healing wounds and repairing damaged skin.” “This bed works wonders!” says one of her employees, Jaime Orr, “ I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks and already I can notice my skin getting smoother, my stretch marks are much less noticeable and its really helping a ton with my acne.” “Our customers are raving about the Collagen bed!” Orr goes on “Some people that are using it have eczema or psoriasis, one woman had a dry skin patch that wouldn’t go away no matter what she did. She had even been to the doctor and gotten prescription lotions to put on it, and nothing helped. Until our Collagen bed!” What’s even more amazing about D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy is how they give back to the community. At Christmas they had an “Angel Tree” in the salon. For the month before Christmas, customers could take an angel off of the tree and bring back a gift for a child in need. “I have always done that” says Holbrook. “I used to teach 2nd grade at Copper Canyon Elementary here in Tooele and every year I organized what I called “Adopt-a-Family”. Some years we would get the names of 2 or 3 three families from the Children’s Justice Center that needed help or other years from direct contact with families that we knew right in our school that couldn’t afford to make a memorable Christmas for their kids. It’s really a great feeling to help. For many years on Thanksgiving, my family and I served food at a soup kitchen. It really does your soul good to help others”. Holbrook’s son, Kyle, owns the store next to her salon, Impulse Clothing & Accessories. Together they are the largest sponsor of the upcoming MX For a Cure in September. D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy truly believes in giving back to the community and has donated to many causes including Strikers Softball of Grantsville, Ophir Days, Oquirrh Hills Ladies Golf Memorial Tournament and Grandmothers Tournament, Tooele County Domestic Violence Coalition, the Primary Children’s Medical Center 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, as well as many of the local school PTA’s. Type1Racing is an organization that Holbrook and her family are heavily involved in too. Type1Racing is a non profit group spearheaded here in Tooele by a local family, Shawn, Judi, Gabrielle and Riley Jensen. Riley, a 13 year old boy was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in June of 2008. While still in the hospital, Riley decided that he wanted to be able to bring hope to other kids with Type 1 Diabetes. As a huge motocross fan and rider, Riley was determined to show himself as well as others that obstacles can be overcome, and that if you believe in

yourself, you can make things happen. His dream has turned into Tooele County’s 3rd Annual MX For a Cure. On September 9th and 10th at Deseret Peak, riders from across the Rocky Mountain West will converge to show their support as well as their love of motocross. “Jim & Melyssa do so much for so many people” says Judi Jensen, “I really admire them more than they will ever know. Not only are they huge supporters of Type1Racing, Melyssa also has set up an area in her salon for me to display my other passion. I hand-make candles, scented wax, car fresheners, I also make jewelry and watches. It’s a great creative outlet for me when I am not consumed with Type1Racing”. “It’s a lot of hard work to run your own business”, says Holbrook “But its also very rewarding. This tanning salon is a very social and fun place. A lot of our customers come in just for the social aspect of it. Some customers spend as much as 45 minutes just talking to us at the front counter. I think they feel comfortable here. All of us are Smart Tan Certified, which means we have taken 10 - 40 hours of training to be as knowledgeable about indoor tanning, UV rays, sanitation and general health conditions as possible. Tanning is actually a very scientific process. We feel a little bit like doctors sometimes because we are taking care of a person’s largest organ – their skin. We deal with how people look and that is a big deal for people. Our main priority is our customers’ safety and health. We don’t burn people. We want them to look good and feel good.” As you watch customers walk in and out of D’Lux Tan, you can’t help but notice the smiles on their faces. “D’Lux is my refuge” says Kim, a longtime loyal customer “I love coming here. I look forward to it all day.” “Yeah, I know that when I come to D’Lux they are going to take care of me. The place is always clean and all of the employees are so friendly” says Allen, another regular. D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy has also teamed up with Gold’s Gym as the place where Gold’s Gym VIP’s can tan for free. “We’ve been tanning Gold’s VIP’s for over 18 months now” says Holbrook, “It’s a great partnership. A lot of the people who have gym memberships come here to use the massage bed. One guy even uses it twice a day!” If you haven’t experienced D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy for yourself, you need to. They offer the largest selection of lotions in Tooele County along with a wider variety of tanning beds than can be found anywhere else in the area. They are open 7 days a week at 134 W 1180 N, next to WalMart. You can check out their website All first-time customers are treated to an informational tour in which you learn the differences between the UVA and UVB rays, the differences in their 5 levels of tanning beds, as well as the non-tanning beds and automatic spray booth, and your first time tan is free!

County Commission Update: Remembering 9-11 Written by Wade Mathews, Public Information Officer ost of us living now will remember September 11th, 2001 as our country’s most tragic day. Nearly 3,000 lives were lost on that day when terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field. The tenth anniversary of those horrific events is almost upon us. Our country hasn’t seen a day like 9/11 since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, “a date that will live in infamy,” said President Franklin D. Roosevelt. We have never forgotten that day that triggered the United States’ entry into World War II. Some people of our older generation still remember where they were and what they were doing when they first heard of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I hope we will also never forget 9/11, which also launched us into the continuing war on terror. I’m sure you remember where you were when you first heard of the attacks on the Twin Towers. The Tooele County Commissioners took a moment to share their thoughts about 9/11. Here is what Commissioner Colleen Johnson wrote. “I was at home listening to roofers banging on my roof. The phone rang and Bob told me to turn the TV on. Just as I did the second plane hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center. All I could do was stare at the TV in unbelief, things like this don’t happen in America! My thoughts immediately went to my family, and I said a silent prayer of thanks that they were safe, and then a prayer for all those being affected by this horrible event. Then came the reports of a plane hitting the Pentagon and a plane crashing in Pennsylvania. “As I was thinking about this I realized that there are children that will be learning this in their history classes as people of my generation learned of Pearl Harbor, and trying to imagine how such an event could happen. I don’t think there are words to describe the gamut of feelings and emotions that people went through that day and the days to follow. “Never, Never, Never forget or let your families forget what this great nation stands for. We were founded on freedom and today it is just as important as it was then. As horrible and terrifying as the 9-11 attacks were it brought our country and communities together as never before. I was so proud of the way our nation pulled together and stood up for what we believe in. We had a greater appreciation for just how blessed and lucky we are and how good we have it–something that we should never ever take for granted.”

Commissioner Bruce Clegg said this about that fateful day, “We were helping a re-enactment of a wagon train of Mormon settlers traveling from Spanish Fork to San Bernardino, California. We were on the desert in Juab County and had just hooked up the teams to the wagons when we got the message about the World Trade Center. People were wondering, ‘is this the end of the world’ since America had never been attacked this way before. That’s what was going through people’s minds. No matter how you thought about it, it was a serious event, a disconcerting event. “The decision was made to stay on schedule with the wagon train until we got more information. The attacks never impeded our progress but we kept getting more details about the event as we rolled along. We finished our leg of the journey at the Nevada border. “I think it’s really important that we keep these events on our minds and express our feelings to people who might not remember it, the younger generations, and let them know what we went through at that time, what it was like. We want them to stay vigilant and reduce or eliminate the vulnerabilities that existed then so we don’t have to experience that again.” Commissioner Hurst was unavailable for this article. I also remember exactly what I was doing on 9/11 when I first heard of the attacks. It was the day before Tooele County’s annual Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program exercise. Other Public Affairs Officers and I were going to be meeting with

members of the media to issue them credentials for observing the emergency drill the following day. I was home getting ready for work when I got a phone call from a photographer at Channel 4 News. He asked me if we were still going to be conducting our exercise. When I replied “yes” and asked him “why wouldn’t we?” he excitedly told me about the first plane crash into the World Trade Center. I told him I’d have to get back with him about the exercise. After turning on my TV I watched in utter disbelief as the second plane flew into one of the Twin Towers. I couldn’t believe it was really happening. In remembrance of the tragic events on 9/11, and especially all those who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks, Tooele County Emergency Management will activate the sirens, part of our outdoor warning system, on Sunday morning, September 11th. We plan to activate the sirens at about 9:59 a.m., the time the first World Trade Center tower collapsed. Please don’t be alarmed when you hear the sirens’ “wail” tone, followed by the message “Join Tooele County in remembering the heroes and victims of the 9/11 tragedy.” Please take a moment on the upcoming September 10th to reflect on how 9/11 changed you, your family, and your country. Always remember that tragic day, and as a people remain vigilant against the evils of the world and anyone, foreign or domestic, that will attempt to take away the freedoms and prosperity that are only available in this great country, the United States of America.

A Boys Dream: TYPE1RACING Written by: Judi Jensen


ooele County is making one boy’s dream come true again…for the 3rd year in a row! Our son, Riley Jensen, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in June ’08. He was ten, and felt the weight of the world on his shoulders. Just four months earlier he was hospitalized for asthma. We struggled with understanding why he had to go through all of this. He was so scared that he wouldn’t be able to ride motocross anymore, which was and still is his passion. He dreamt of being able to ride just like, CJ Higley – one of Deseret Peak’s top riders- one day. Riley thought all hope was lost and worried he wouldn’t be able to ride anymore, let alone race. It would be too much for his body to handle. We couldn’t find the words to console him. It hadn’t sunk in yet that by taking the injections of insulin, counting his carbohydrates, and doing all the things that were now medically necessary, it would make him an even better rider than before. His body would have what it needed to function properly. But to Riley, each shot, or finger prick, just seemed too much. Each seemed to be taking him further and further from his dreams. He couldn’t figure out how all of this could possibly work into his training and riding. The second day in the hospital, a member of the JDRF- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation- stopped by with a ‘bag of hope’. The ‘bag of hope’ is a custom backpack for each newly diagnosed diabetic, complete with an insulated pouch and many of the new essentials necessary to keep, Riley, and other diabetics, alive. As we looked through even more books, trying to understand all of the new information, we tried to tie altogether all of the new things we were still trying to process, which we’d been taught by the wonderful nurses and doctors at Primary Children’s Hospital, it seemed overwhelming. Things like how to work a blood glucose meter, and how often to check his blood sugars or learning how to give a shot. What should we do when he was hypoglycemic (low blood sugars), or hyperglycemic (high blood sugars)? What to do on sick days, when it’s medically neccessary to call the clinic in order to adjust insulin. When a type 1 diabetic is ‘sick’, they are less sensitive to insulin. Our entire family had to learn how to care for him in very new and different ways. This would forever be a part of his life and ours and we were overwhelmed. How was he still going to be able to ride? Somehow the representative’s words broke through our confusion, frustration and worries. We put everything to the side so as to listen more closely as she explained how ‘normal’ her life was. She explained to us that she did everything she wanted to. Nothing, especially diabetes, held her back. Her words brought relief to us, and turned out to be a message of hope for Riley. After the representative left Riley turned to us, with a smile so bright it seemed to light up the room, and whispered, “I want to do that, I want to bring the hope”. We thought he meant that he wanted to deliver the bags for the JDRF, but his message of hope involved his dirt bike. He wanted to put on a race to raise funds not only for the JDRF, but to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and show every child that may be sitting at home or in a hospital bed or feeling the weight of the world on their shoulders that there

Riley Jensen

is hope! They can still achieve all of their dreams and more. From that day on we decided to let diabetes make us all stronger people, and do all that we could to support Riley’s dream. None of us has asked ‘why?’ since that long ago visit. We all wanted to find a way to help as many people as possible as the JDRF representative had done for us. We know Riley brings the hope and shows everyone that dreams do come true, no matter what’s in the way. Every time he rides his dirt bike, after checking his blood of course…he’s our hero. After last years’ race, which raised an incredible amount of money and was featured in a special Utah Gives article by the JDRF in Nov. 2010, our whole family knew then we could do more. Ironically, the day the paper came out Riley was in the ER in diabetic ketoacidosis after a month of extreme illness. His dad ran to the gas station to pick up a copy and after reading it, our family felt we needed to do more. We knew some of the money this community raised for research could have helped another family in the situation we were in that very moment. We could ‘bring the hope’ to so many more kids, right here in Tooele County and Utah. Riley and our family wanted to give back to the community that did so much for us. So on Nov. 7th, 2010 the seed of the dream- forming a non-profit corporation was planted. It only took a few months for the dream of a now 13-year-old boy, to blossom into the nonprofit organization of Type1Racing that Riley dreamed up to help the community that has shown him so much support. TYPE1RACING reaches out to the type 1 diabetic community by providing educational information and assistance (an eventual medical fund to help families in need of life-saving medical supplies, such as insulin, syringes, even batteries for their pumps), athletic opportunities & training -Riley and his sister, Gabrielle are black belts in Tae Kwon Do, and their Master, Brittany Seamons, has volunteered to help teach, along with Riley and Gabrielle, Tae Kwon Do to type 1 diabetics. Some of our TYPE1RACING riders have also volun-

teered to help train type 1 diabetics, to ride and ride well. Jake Mitchell, Riley’s personal motoX trainer is the head of our athletic outreach. He has volunteered to be a “personal trainer” of sorts to type 1 diabetics. We hope this will help the families of type 1 diabetics by taking a little bit of the worry out of things for them because their children will be with people educated in diabetes, and know what to do if there is a problem and how to prevent problems from happening. Our next goal is to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes through sponsoring riders in the motocross community who have been educated in type 1 diabetes, and make Riley’s dream of ‘MX for a Cure… Bringing the HOPE’ a part of motocross racing series throughout the country…After all there is a Walk for a Cure… It takes a community to make this kind of magic happen. The people of Tooele County have all been a part of turning our son’s dreams into realities and ‘bringing the hope’ to so many other children and their families. We, Shawn, Judi, Gabrielle and especially Riley, would like to express our gratitude and thanks to the entire community. You have all reached out to us in so many ways and turned what we thought to be a ‘maybe one day’ dream, into an incredible reality. Lynn Higley, at Deseret Peak Complex, was the first person we contacted, when we realized Riley wasn’t going to take ‘someday’ for an answer anymore. Lynn generously donated his precious time to help us every step of the way to make Tooele County’s first MX for a Cure happen. He even helped us in contacting the Tooele County Commissioners, which was quite intimidating to us. How were we to know that the Tooele County Commissioners would welcome Riley with open arms? We took a few deep breaths full of hope and a colossal step forward by sending them a brief email about Riley’s dream to see if there might be any way they could help us make Riley’s dream come true. The very next day Jerry Hurst called us personally to let us know Tooele County would love to make sure Riley’s dream happened. They have done so for three consecutive years now. What an amazing county we live in! Lynn guided us every step of the way, and on September 12, 2009 the motocross community was there to support a boy they really didn’t even know, yet. D’Lux Tan & Body Therapy and Impulse Clothing owners, Jim, Melyssa & Kyle Holbrook offered support we never dreamed of. The Holbrook’s, who have no children of their own in motoX, have been ‘adopted’ into our TYPE1RACING family. They always seem to know what TYPE1RAC-

Tooele County Chamber of Commerce

Dream Continued from page 11 ING needs and how make it happen; from Type1Racing t-shirts, to making Type1Racing a member of the Chamber of Commerce. Melyssa even set aside an area in her salon for me to display and sell my Primitive Works Collection- a handmade line of candles, scented wax, and jewelry. The Holbrook family has really embraced Riley’s dream and are a huge reason TYPE1RACING now exists. Our gratitude to all of the Tooele County residents and your countless good deeds, it is never ending. The Steadman family, and Steadman’s Recreation have always been supporters of Riley’s dream. Every year they do something special that really impacts the race, and throughout the year they are always there to cheer Riley on, or find bike parts that no one else can, that “we have to have right now.” Thank you Steadman’s, your supportive words and deeds mean the world to us. Nigh-Time Donuts, and the Erickson family have done the same. They always do something unique for the races. Throughout the years their whole family has shown Riley support through their countless surprises and extraordinary deeds… Speaking of extraordinary deeds, John, aka “Local Hero” is always there. He not only helped to design our logo, he donates all proceeds from race day to the JDRF. Also always at the race is Matt Arnold, from Ink Doubt. Once he heard of Riley’s race he has been there to set up a booth each year. He always goes out of his way to do something fun like henna tattoos, or airbrushing, to raise money to donate to the JDRF.

Jake Mitchell (Riley’s personal motoX trainer) and CJ Higley (Riley’s inspiration to be a great rider) discuss technique and plan for the next lap.

Jake Mitchell, CJ Higley, Kyle Williams, Alex Gochis and McLaine Allred; these young men are not only amazing riders, their kindness has no end. Each has taken Riley under their wings in some way and done everything possible to help him with his dream of bringing the hope to children in need. To our board members, riders, and friends: We know you have all made sacrifices to spend countless hours organizing MotoX for a Cure and the formation of the Type1Racing non-profit corporation. To the Higley’s,


Heywood’s, Holbrook’s, Mitchell’s, Williams’, Justin ‘Trol’ Hanneman, Randi Thomas, The Prestenbauch’s.. . . we send our sincerest gratitude to you and all of the motocross community, you have all become part of our ‘family’. And to our other extended family members who have helped to make this all happen; Brittany Seamons, Tracy Roxburgh,

13 Eileen Deeleeuw, who in our humble opinion is the BEST diabetes educator ever, we thank you for taking your time to educate and have dinner with the TYPE1RACING crew, in order to ensure they receive the proper information and instruction. We had a great evening and hope to bring more fun and educational events like that to our community… The Lunt’s, The Ault’s, Bobby, The Hubbard’s & we could never forget The Taylor family who always seem to get stuck with the grunt work, but never loose their smile or enthusiasm. Our thanks goes out to each of you for teaching us all to dream bigger, and you have all been a major part of forming the new dream…TYPE1RACING. Be sure to come to this year’s MotoX for a Cure race on Friday September 9th (AX) and Saturday September 10th (MX) to see Riley’s dream soar at Deseret Peak Arena. There will be some amazing riding and racing, you can ride a mechanical bull and the National Guard will have a climbing wall. Mom’s and girls there’s something special for you this year too!!! Let’s just say our sponsor section is AMAZING & has something for everyone. There will also be vendor booths with something for everyone. It is sure to be an amazing time for all who come! Did we mention that Nitro Circus will be there?!! Check out our website for more information on some of our special events planned for race day! Thank-You Tooele County!

At Grantsville Jr. High School, “failure is not an option” for our students. We work hard to help every student be successful. I am hoping that members of the Chamber can help us by coming to our school and talking about their companies or organizations and what they do. Last year, presenters brought pictures, used video clips, power point presentations, and other visual aides to hold the attention of our students. Some talked about the overall mission of their organization. Others talked about possible jobs and careers. Enrichment presentations need to engage an audience of 300-350, 7th and 8th grade students, ages 12-14, for 55 minutes with a question and answer period built into the presentation. Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1:30 to 2:30 are the usual days and times for our intervention classes and enrichment activities, however, we are willing to change our schedule, if that is what it takes to make it happen for our teachers and students. If you think this is something that you can help us with or you need additional information, please contact me at school or send me an email at,, Subject: “Enrichment Presentation”.
