Happy Thanksgiving

I

s Thanksgiving and giving thanks one in the same? The answer to that question depends on one’s individual perspective. In any event, I think it would be safe to say they have a common thread, which is gratitude. The simple definition of gratitude is to show appreciation and RETURN KINDNESS. With the passage of time, it is not unusual for some of us to minimize the positive things in our lives as they become common occurrences. We often don’t realize that to avoid negativity it’s important to focus on the “Good in Life.” Some of the good things in life that we may tend to take for granted are having an amazing community, good health, awesome friends and/or family, a good job, and the comforts of life. If we fail to be appreciative of these and other things, we may find that complaining becomes commonplace in our lives. Having an attitude of gratitude, or giving thanks, is a tool that can help us avoid negativity and be happier and more optimistic. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused me to reflect upon the many blessings I have in my life. I realized that gratitude involves an outward-focus instead of an inward-focus. I became aware of the fact that I was too focused on me and things that really didn’t matter. Suddenly, I recognized how important my family is and that I have been blessed with many things that perhaps others haven’t. I began to be more outwardly-focused. This helped me give thanks for the “Good in Life.” It shouldn’t take an event such as a pandemic for each of us to recognize what we are grateful for and to acknowledge and appreciate our blessings. I’m convinced that having gratitude can change people’s lives, which can result in more meaningful relationships, a happier outlook, and most importantly, being kinder. Being a realist, I understand that having gratitude is difficult because life is hard. However during this Thanksgiving season I challenge you to consider the following: • Increase your appreciation for the things you have • Employ the essence of gratitude by focusing outwardly on others • Return kindness by considering: 1. Performing random acts of kindness 2. Returning a favor 3. Paying a compliment – Mark Twain said, “I can live two months on a compliment.” 4. Finding a way to “Pay it forward” 5. Telling those close to you what they really mean to you – life is short 6. Think of five things that you are thankful for and write them down Thanksgiving is a great time to give thanks! It is my hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving Holiday and that you are amazed by the things you have been blessed with. Thank you for letting me serve you as your mayor. Mayor Berube

City of North Ogden COMMUNITY QUESTION CORNER BY JON CALL, CITY MANAGER/ATTORNEY

Resident’s Question: What are the rules for snow this year? Answer: It is illegal to move your snow onto the street

or sidewalk (see NOC 8-4-2). When snow is moved into the streets after the plows have already been through your area, it becomes problematic. The shoveled snow becomes compacted by vehicles, turning the space into a dangerous, icy area. If you see anyone violating this ordinance, please remind them of the city code and point them to this article for information. Also, please do not use vehicle-mounted snow plows to clear away snow from the city streets. Our employees will get to your area as quickly as possible, and we don’t want to risk damage to public infrastructure. Please remember that we need to keep our sidewalks clean, especially along school routes. If you have a sidewalk along the front or side of your house, you are required under city code to shovel it, to allow pedestrians to pass freely (see NOC 8-4-1). We appreciate your willingness to help us keep our children safe on sidewalks during the upcoming snowy season. For more information visit the www.northogdencity. com/publicworks page to look at information on snow removal in the sidebar menu links. If you have questions about proper procedures, city . code, building permits, community events, how-to's, or other city-related questions, please send an email to jcall@nogden.org.

Employee of the Month Officer Tracy Preece has been with the North Ogden Police Department since January of 2019. Tracy brought with her a work ethic that she displays daily with her professionalism, team-player attitude, and pride in doing the best job possible. Tracy is currently assigned to local schools as the School Resource Officer. As part of this assignment, she spends most of her time at North Ogden Jr. High. She also spends time in the three elementary schools teaching D.A.R.E. Another part of this assignment is investigating crimes involving juveniles. Tracy takes this assignment very seriously, in an attempt to seek justice for victims. Tracy was recently complimented by the Department of Child and Family Services for the job she does investigating cases. They commented on her thoroughness, diligence, and efficiency when investigating crimes against children. The North Ogden Police Department and the community of North Ogden are fortunate to have Tracy on the team. She is a tremendous asset to the city. North Ogden Police Department is fortunate to have Tracy as a part of our staff!

Snow Removal Help Many of your friends, family members and neighbors may be older, or perhaps temporarily or permanently disabled; they could need help when it snows. If you are willing to help your neighbors, let them know. Give them your phone number, and tell them to call. If you are one of the residents that are in need of assistance, talk to your neighbors, and know the phone numbers to your local church leaders and scout masters.

+ A LOOK BACK

The Trunk of North Ogden’s Family Tree: ABRAHAM CHADWICK BY JENNY GOLDSBERRY

“I imagine he practiced [the saxophone] as he walked.”

A

braham Chadwick was born in England in 1821. At eight years old, he began working at a printing press; his job was to press the ink pad onto the paper. When he was fifteen, he decided to make a career change and apprenticed as a tailor for five years. This decision would alter his destiny, as he ultimately became one of the finest tailors in Utah according to his great grandson David Chadwick. Abraham married Mary Burton in 1840. Together they were baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His parents and family disowned him following his conversion. In 1842, he and Mary immigrated to the United States, spending eight weeks on a ship. “I didn’t realize this until now but they actually came to New Orleans,” David said. “They must’ve gone all the way around South America.” They lived in St. Louis, Missouri for six years, and raised four children. There, he continued his career as a tailor. His wife ultimately died of cholera in Iowa after being married for ten years and having four children. Abraham remarried, and his second wife was named Mary Foxall. In 1851, he started across the plains with a company of saints of 150 wagons. They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in October of 1851, eventually settling in Abraham Chadwick Bingham’s Fort in 1854. This fort was built to protect roughly 50 families from two adversaries: Native Americans, and military troops from Washington. The Shoshoni Native Americans were

seeking revenge after the wrongful death of Chief Terikee, who was shot by a Harrisonville farmer on September 6, 1950 as he was returning from a meeting with Mayor Farr of Ogden. Troops were sent by President Buchanan to check on the Mormon settlements. However, after the Extermination Order by Missouri governor Lilburn Boggs, the settlers were worried about the troops’ intentions. At this point, Abraham had taken another wife, who was named Mary Wheeler, and altogether they had twelve children. While he continued his tailoring business in 1856, Abraham started a band. He played the saxophone himself, and walked from his home in North Ogden to Ogden for practice with his band. “I imagine he practiced as he walked,” David said. In 1857, they had a ten-year celebration of the arrival of Brigham Young to Salt Lake. Abraham’s band played at the celebration. All the while, he continued his tailoring business. He also began to farm while living in North Ogden, since that was largely what most men did for work. He learned to tailor the farmers’ overalls.


His fourth wife, Mary Ann Newby, was David’s greatgrandmother. After marrying Mary Ann, he married Ellen Burton. Between all his wives, he had 26 children. After polygamy became illegal, he built another house for his first wife near 2100 East 2600 North. David’s great-grandmother lived in another house with another farm. This strategy was used by many polygamists, and was implemented across Utah. Luckily, Mary Ann was a tailor too, and used her skills to support herself after they separated, following the legal order. Ellen divorced him nine months later. In the end, Abraham spent six months in jail two times in his life for practicing polygamy. Abraham lived till he was 83 years old. Many of the families the North Ogden Connection magazine have already written about being descendants of Abraham, including the Randalls, Barkers, and Montgomerys. David’s grandfather, son of Mary Ann, was sent to Wyoming by Brigham Young to create a settlement there. David himself was born in Wyoming. His father was offered a position as a Botany Professor at Weber State, so when David was in the sixth grade, they moved to North Ogden, bringing his family back to their roots.

Ogden Musical Theater BY HAILEY MINTON

Ogden Musical Theater was born in 2017. It had been nearly a decade since Utah Musical Theater closed, but Weber County had the vision to bring musical theatre back to Peery’s Egyptian Theater. Kassi Bybee was handpicked for the job and she said, when they first asked her to launch this program, she wasn’t sure it was even possible. However, she believed to her core that if she brought in the right people to help, they could accomplish something amazing, and they have! Things have been strange and challenging this year with the pandemic, however support has remained strong for the theatre and the Kids Act Up

20

Theatre Camp that they have held, with precautions. They sold out the Kids Act Up Camp even though there were some strict requirements for all participants.

northogdenconnection.com | November 2020

Plus, the camp still went well despite everyone wearing masks and social distancing.


Coming up later this month is a season tradition performance of Five Carols for Christmas. A comedy set in the 1950’s of five women, all of whom happen to be named Carol, who have taken on the task of arranging the annual PTA Christmas performance. It is a hilarious look at all the challenges that arise and the comedy ensues. It is a great way to get some laughs while celebrating your holiday season. This musical was actually written and produced by two Weber State educators. Jim Christian is a professor emeritus from Weber State University and has 40 years of professional experience as a director, teacher, actor, writer and producer. Jim wrote this musical with friend and colleague Kenneth Plain who is the composer. The musical features both original songs combined with some traditional Christmas favorites. Maurie Tarbox is the Artistic Director for Ogden Musical Theatre and she is directing this year’s performance. Jim said the musical is spun off from his memories watching his

mother and her friends. His favorite part of writing the musical has been getting to know each character as he developed their niche and influence in the group. Some are based on actual people. He also loves that it was set in the 1950’s, a fond time in his life. It is so special to have a musical theater to serve our community, especially one of this caliber. Nearly 5 years ago when the idea was brought forward, America First Credit Union took a risk and donated to just a dream, an idea really. Their help, combined with the support of RAMP Grants, Stewart Education Foundation and Weber State University, helped get things off the ground. In addition, cooperation and access to Weber State University’s Performing Arts programs gives the Ogden Musical Theater the ability to put out top quality events with local talent. “There is no need to hire big names and bring them in, we have all we need here and it exceeds expectations;” said Kassi.

Tickets are on sale now at ogdenmusicaltheatre.org. Social distancing and masks will be required. Since every other row will be left vacant due to social distancing measures, they recommend getting your tickets early as all shows will likely sell out completely.

It’s time to get with your health insurance advisor to discuss your options.

just online. There is no additional cost to you to use an advisor. The insurance carrier pays the advisor directly. You don’t save anything by going direct. Ask for help! It’s the best way to find the product that meets your specific needs. How do you find the right advisor? Your health insurance advisor should have the following characteristics: 1. A physical office close to you. Whether you visit in person, over the phone, email, or zoom meeting, it is still important that if you wanted to see the whites of their eyes, you could. 2. They should be knowledgeable, with years of experience. You want someone that has “been there and done that,” someone with the experience to give you the best service possible. 3. Great online presence. Look up their online reviews.

4. Make sure the advisor represents multiple insurance carriers. You want options that will be specific to you. Once you have found your trusted advisor, make sure you share all the pertinent information with them. Let them know which doctors and hospitals you prefer. Review any upcoming procedures and your past medical history so they can advise you effectively. There are hundreds of plans available, and your advisor can help you select the best one for you.

MEDICARE

If you are approaching age 65 or older, you have many excellent options available. It’s time to reap the benefits of terrific healthcare at affordable pricing. An expert can help you understand Part A, B, C, D of Medicare. Or maybe an Advantage plan is right for you? You have between October 15 and December 7 to make changes for the upcoming year.

Individual and Family Medical Insurance

There are some new plans available in Utah this year due to changes in the law. If you haven’t looked at your options, this is the year you should look. Make sure you speak to an advisor who has access to the exchange as well as many options off healthcare.gov. Open enrollment is November 1 through December 15. Talk to an advisor during this time.

These staff members handpick shoes for each child on the list, including adaptive shoes for students who may have special needs. The Wasatch Peaks staff then take the time to wrap each

This year, our recipients have been selected from the following elementary schools: Burch Creek, Heritage, James Madison, Municipal, New Bridge, North Park, Odyssey, Riverdale, Roosevelt, T.O. Smith, Wasatch, and Washington Terrace Elementary.

How Can You Help? Since 2006, Wasatch Peaks has raised $189,533, providing 6,739 pairs of shoes for our local elementary school children. Last year was a record-breaking year and we were able to raise $33,110 in donations, more than double our goal!

How it Works: Members of our community can donate to the Warm the Soles program and help Wasatch Peaks in supporting our local children. We are able to work with the elementary schools directly so we can best benefit those children who need our support. Teachers and administrators select students, and then provide us with a list of those students and their shoe sizes. These selected students then receive a brand-new pair of Nike® shoes, purchased with the donations made from our community. The Nike® Factory Store in Farmington has provided

3 Tips to De-Stress Your Thanksgiving POSTED BY ADDIE B. - ACUITY

Thanksgiving is all about family traditions. Whether chatting during meal preparation, watching football as a family, or going out for hours of shopping— family comes to life on Thanksgiving. We all look forward to spending time together and enjoying favorite family recipes, but all that family in one place can be stressful. Fortunately, you don’t have to let the stress ruin your holiday. Here are some suggestions that will help you have a happy and stressfree Thanksgiving.

1. FOSTER GENUINE GRATITUDE. Encourage your children to see how important it is to have a thankful heart. This is a time to reflect on the accomplishments and joys you and your family have experienced. Coordinate a volunteer event in your family or neighborhood to help someone in need. There is no greater joy than to be a blessing to someone else.

2. ANTICIPATE THE FAMILY TIME AND REMINISCE ABOUT YEARS PAST. It is fun to think about each family member and which part of the meal they look forward to most. When the table is set and everyone is seated for the meal, take turns expressing the things that you are most thankful for. It is so touching to hear everyone talk about what matters the most. Take a family picture so you can look back on the memories that have been made.

3. TAKE A WALK. When you have had enough of the kitchen craziness, head outside in the brisk air for a walk. There are many benefits of getting your body moving. When walking, your increased rate of breathing moves oxygen through your bloodstream. It promotes digestion and can have a calming effect because the release of endorphins can relieve pain and stimulate relaxation.

Thanksgiving is all about spending time with family.

So, when Uncle Bob starts telling the embarrassing story you hate—or when the kids start to fight—remember not to stress. Enjoy the time with your family and remember to keep the holiday spirit alive and well.

USING ABLE ACCOUNTS TO ASSIST WITH CARE FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

A

By Attorney Garrett T. Smith

An ABLE account is a taxadvantaged savings account for individuals with special needs.

BLE Accounts were created through Federal legislation passed in 2014 called the Achieving a Better Life Experience Act (ABLE Act). An ABLE Account is a taxadvantaged savings account for individuals with special needs. The beneficiary of the account is the account owner. Any income earned by an account will not be taxed. Contributions can be made to an account by any person. Contributions will be made with post-taxed dollars and are not tax deductible (federally). Some states, including Utah, allow for state income tax deductions for contributions. Many individuals with disabilities and their family rely on public benefits for health care, food, income, and housing assistance. Individuals reporting more than $2,000 in cash savings, retirement funds, and/or other items of significant value are ineligible for certain public benefits like SSI, SNAP, Medicaid, etc. The ABLE Act recognizes that there are extra and significant costs associated with living with a disability. Many of the public benefits do not cover all of the health care, personal assistance services, assistive technology, housing, transportation, and other needs to have the desired quality of life. There are certain eligibility requirements for ABLE Accounts. The onset of the disability must have occurred before the individual reached 26 years of age. If an individual meets this age requirement and is already receiving benefits under SSI and/or SSDI, that individual is automatically eligible to open an ABLE Account. If an individual is

26

northogdenconnection.com | November 2020

not a recipient of benefits under SSI and/or SSDI, but still meets the age of onset of the disability requirement, that individual may be eligible if he or she meets the following requirements: 1) Meet Social Security’s definition and criteria regarding significant functional limitations, and 2) Obtain a letter of certification from a licensed physician. One disadvantage of an ABLE Account is that upon the death of the beneficiary, the state in which the beneficiary lived may file a claim to all or a portion of the funds within the ABLE Account equal to the amount that the state spent on the beneficiary through the state Medicaid program. This “Medicaid Pay-Back” allows the state to recoup Medicaid related expenses from the time that the ABLE Account was opened. An ABLE Account should be used to supplement a Special Needs Trust rather than supplant it altogether. The advantages of each provide an individual with special needs, and their family, with more comprehensive tools to manage and protect assets. An ABLE Account provides the individual and family more control and flexibility while a Special Needs Trust avoids the Medicaid Pay-Back and provides greater protection of assets. This is a complex area of law and small mistakes can have major financial consequences. If you need help navigating these issues, please give me a call!

ZK Automotive BY HAILEY MINTON

This family run and car-loving business keeps the families they serve first.

The team at ZK can finance vehicle puchases, repairs and upgrades.

Today, they have a mechanic shop and collectively, ZK mechanics have over 100 years of experience. Many of them hail from the beautiful city of North Ogden as well.

ZK

Automotive is a family-owned business, owned and operated by North Ogden and Pleasant View residents, built to serve residents along Northern Utah. Jennifer Roskelley, her husband Tyler, and father Mike Salazar, are the owners of ZK Automotive. Tyler grew up in Huntsville. Mike was born in North Ogden, and Jennifer has spent the better part of her life in our community as well.  After Jennifer and Tyler married, they decided to start a full-service auction company. Mike, having a love for thrifty buys and restoring items of rusty items, gained his Auction License in 2014 and never looked back. All three got their car state auction license soon after, and from there it grew.  “We all LOVE cars,” said Jennifer. She admitted that fast cars are her indulgence.  

northogdenconnection.com | November 2020

Jennifer explained that car dealerships go to state dealership wholesale auctions, in order to purchase cars for their fleets. “We can offer that to the public.” People can buy or sell their vehicles through ZK Automotive auctions, which has moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (Look for their restart in the Spring of 2021)! In 2016, they decided to transfer their passion for cars into expanding their services in order to offer more help to their customers.  “We believe in being diverse and expanding where you can, when it makes sense,” Jennifer said. They offer a wide range of financing options for ALL credit types, and they finance vehicle purchases, repairs, and upgrades. Today, they have a mechanic shop and collectively, ZK mechanics have over 100 years of experience. “They’re great,” said Jennifer. “They come second to none!” And many of them hail from the beautiful city of North Ogden as well.   Jennifer said they like to be innovative in running their business. They offer a car service subscription, which reduces the hourly rate of service when customers bring

their vehicles in to have work done. Jennifer explained that a lot of places will charge anywhere from $110 - $130 per hour for normal mechanic work. Theirs ends up coming to as low as $59.95 per hour. They chose to incorporate this into their business, with families in mind. “On the back end, it genuinely saves families thousands of dollars if their transmission goes out, their engine breaks down, if they need alignment jobs, or have a huge leak. We are a family first oriented business and that’s not going to change.” That has been their motto from the very beginning. They have made some hard decisions along their journey.  “As an entrepreneur, you either fail or succeed. At one point we were really beginning to feel that pressure. The return in revenue wasn’t there and it didn’t make sense to continue, but we know the secret to success is to keep working hard and never give up. Innovate! We decided to change up our procedures, restructure, and learn how to better manage our time and costs,” said Jennifer. “From that point success came easier. It’s all about working harder and smarter, and never giving up.”

Amazon Doesn’t Sponsor Your Kid’s Soccer Team! BY RYAN SPELTS

D

on’t worry, this is not going to be a lecture on how amazon.com is evil and ruining our local economy. I personally use Amazon, probably a little too much. I do, however, make every effort to buy locally. I recently wanted to buy some sporting equipment and shopped locally at four stores, until I couldn’t find what I needed and then I went online. To me that extra effort is worth it, because I am a local business owner and I want to support others who also have local businesses. I love walking into Lee’s or Smith’s and seeing my neighbors’ kids working there, learning at their first job. Ben Lomond Heating and Air hired my son for his first job. Advanced Electrolysis hired my daughter for her first job. My dentist, Ben Lomond Dental, seems to sponsor nearly every sport at the High School, and Dr. Larson, said, “I don’t think anyone has ever come in and said, ‘I saw your logo on my child’s dance t-shirt and so I want you to be my dentist’!” He probably won’t ever hear that, but I, for one, am glad that a small business owner like him is willing to sponsor sports and other activities for our youth. (The challenge of naming a few businesses is that I could never fit everyone in one article, and so I inevitably leave some out…sorry!) There are so many business owners like this here in North Ogden. Behind the scenes, doing work and providing work, contributing to our local economy. Our support matters to these businesses. The point of this article is to remind

LOCAL!

There are so many business owners here in North Ogden behind the scenes, doing work and providing work, contributing to our local economy.

each of us to shop here when we can. Our city gets sales tax revenue from locally purchased goods, which helps our city operate. Operation is good. To me though, it is bigger than that. It is connection to our community. It is why this magazine is called Connection! By shopping locally, we get to be part of the community and support someone who lives here too, someone who hires us, or our kids. It’s the chance for me to work side-by-side with fellow business owners Jenice Jones (Jones Shirts and Signs), and Shawn and Sharlene Maynard (Bull Frog Spas) on the Small Business Development Committee; they voluntarily work to try to make the business environment for our community better and stronger. And since nearly half of the workforce is employed by small businesses, there is a one in two chance that you work for or own a small business. Our economy needs you and me and all of us to thrive. While I can recognize the beauty and convenience of buying something in my pj’s and having a brown box on my doorstep (sometimes the very next day), I also love getting a scoop of homemade natural ice cream from the Cannery Creamery, or a gift from All Aflutter. I also know they don’t exist unless a good portion of us make the choice to shop there. So this season, I encourage you to make the effort to stop at a local shop and buy from them, if they have what you want or need. It helps, it really does.

A Little Nudge BY MELISSA SPELTS
