13 Inches of Rain...

I

t is difficult to watch, day-after-day, the light brown lawns, when snow should be covering everything in sight. In my younger days, it seemed like we had snow on the ground from October until March. We have not seen that in years. It does not help that Utah is the second most arid state in the nation, second only to Nevada. Utah, on average, only gets 13 inches of rain a year, which is why you have seen TV spots asking each of us to “Slow the Flow – Save H2O”. There will be plenty of time between now and spring, when you will hear more about conserving water and setting lawn-watering cycles based on the warmth of the day. My message to you is simple: we need to plan today for what comes tomorrow.

"There will come a day when all of us will need to find ways to conserve our water resources."

It would be hard for local governments to ask residents to conserve water usage if they are unwilling to take the lead. There is no question Roy City has a requirement that utilizes a significant amount of water with all our parks and outdoor green spaces. Each of them provides an important quality of life element to our community. But, let’s face it, we could do more to conserve water. Not all the surfaces need to be green lawn to play on, some could be great candidates for xeriscape. Xeriscape is a landscape design that uses low water use or drought-tolerant plants. I am not talking about “zeroscape” that is predominantly dirt and gravel. I am referring to water-wise plants that can provide the desirable look, and at the same time, reduce water consumption. During our upcoming Roy City budget planning meetings, I will be suggesting to the Roy leadership the need to start planning our future water conservation plan. There will come a day when all of us will need to find ways to conserve our water resources. I believe Roy City needs to set the example and show the way to make it happen. Be safe and keep your family safe! Robert Dandoy, Mayor

SNOW, PLOWS, AND SALT

Joe Paul: jpaul@royutah.org

Did you know Roy City has over 220 lane miles to maintain every time it snows? We own 12 plow trucks, nine of which are outfitted to drop salt. We use 100% Redmond salt, mined right here in Utah. Each driver has a specific route to cover; main roads are first priority, followed by side streets, then cul-de-sacs.

Diane Wilson: dwilson@royutah.org

You may have wondered why you often see the trucks driving with plows up rather than down. They are dropping salt rather than plowing. It takes plowing staff 10-12 hours to complete the entire city; salting them can be accomplished in just two hours. As temperatures warm or the storm dissipates, the salt will melt the snow off the roads. Lastly, salting is less dangerous than plowing. This helps save equipment and reduces costs that would need to be passed on to taxpayers.

Another Persons Treasures 5508 S. 1900 W. They are open Wed - Sat 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Another Person's Treasures is a thrift store. There are four entrances to the building, so you can always find a way into the 8000 square feet of sales floor. Parking is down the north side and in back (don’t park on 1900 W.) The owner, Kelly, purchases contents of storage units and entire estates. You’ll find “anything and everything” here – from furniture to pots and pans. You can find literally everything people took out of their home and put in storage. Sometimes, you’ll find repaired lawnmowers and snow blowers. The best way to buy things in this store is to buy in bulk; he acquires inventory by the boxload and loves seeing it leave that way! If you have an entire estate you want to sell, bring in pictures. Note that Kelly doesn’t purchase individual items; he wants the full content of houses. If it’s a hoarder’s house you don’t want to deal with, he’s your guy.

Lee's Fish and Rice, 1864 W. 5300 S. 801-774-8338. Lee's offers tasty fish and seafood. Shrimp, halibut, scallops, oysters, and white fish, breaded lightly and deep-fried, are available in various combinations with coleslaw, fries, or rice (plain white, ham, or beef). Almost every online review comments that the fish is consistently moist and flaky, and many claim the coleslaw is the best they’ve had in the area. Clam chowder and egg rolls are also available, as well as chicken strips for those who prefer "land" rather than "sea" tonight. Keep in mind that Lee starts the cooking when you order, so it's fresh out of the fryer and worth the wait! Most customers call in their order, then drop by to pick it up a few minutes later. Otherwise, expect a wait inside in a comfortable booth or chair. 6 royconnection.com | Februar y 2021

General Plan Update The Planning Commission would like to invite you to review the proposed Draft General Plan and is asking you to provide any comments, concerns, or questions that you may have. Please go to the Roy City Community Development webpage at www.royutah.org/162/Community-Development and click on the "2019 General Plan Update." There is a video that explains what is in the document (the video goes with the "Executive Summary" if you want to follow along) or you can download the draft and read it. If you have any comments you'd like to give, please leave it with us.

Roy Communities That Care and Weber Human Service are collaborating to bring parenting workshops to our Roy community. Limited spaces are available. Register early.

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Parkinson via email at sparkinson@royutah.org or by phone at (801) 774-1027.

Updated Water Meter System You might have recently noticed members of our water department outside of your home. They have been diligent in replacing the utility meters throughout the city. While it temporarily leaves you without water, it typically only takes them about 5-10 minutes to complete. This process is to ensure each home is updated with our new metering system, which will allow Roy City to switch to monthly billing. At this time, we do not have a time line for completion. As this develops, we will continue to provide updates. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to call the Utility Department at 801-774-1000.

Married in the Military: The Dykeman's Love Story BY JENNY GOLDSBERRY

P

Phillip and Jennie Dykeman

hillip Dykeman is a military man. He’s almost 83 years old now, but years ago, he served with the National Guard, the Army, and the Air Force in countries all around the world. He’s lived in Turkey, England, Lebanon, and Panama, just to name a few. His least favorite station was on an island along the Bering Strait. Their mail could only be delivered by parachute.

“I swear, half the time it would get blown out to sea,” Phillip said. Roy, Utah has a special place in his heart. Not only is it where he lives today, but also because it’s where he met his wife, Jennie Della Thatcher.

Phillip would walk two miles from the base to Jennie’s house in Roy to take her out to lunch every day. One day, Jennie asked Phillip to take her to her friend’s upcoming wedding. Then, he didn’t have a car or even a driver’s license. The recession had set record low numbers for car sales, so a lot of people didn’t own cars. As the wedding date approached, the only car he could afford was less than ideal. “I got a car, had it all reupholstered,” he said, “but it looked like hell from the outside.” After a year, Phillip proposed in Jennie’s parents’ backyard in Roy. They got married on June 14, 1965, and had three children, and while they kept their home in Roy, they moved often with Phillip’s military career. They often went to Lagoon. They would ride all the rides and listen to concerts at the Patio Gardens. Phillip even remembers watching the Osmond Brothers perform. “That was before they became famous,” he said. Many now famous musicians gave concert to local Utahns in the heart of the little amusement park. Those who were on the playlist included Janis Joplin, Don McLean, Andy Williams, Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, The Beach Boys, The Who, and Peter Paul and Mary.

“She was the most important thing in my life,” he said. “Probably still is.”

As soon as he could, Phillip joined the National Guard. He served for a few years before joining active duty with the Army for a few more years. In the end, he left because he didn’t enjoy it. Unfortunately, he left the Army in 1958, in the middle of a recession. That recession was very similar to this year’s recession, complete with a global flu epidemic that killed over 1 million people. With many facing unemployment, Phillip found job security in the Air Force. He was stationed at Hill Air Force Base at age 21.

After almost 50 years of marital bliss, Jennie passed away. Phillip has not remarried, because, according to him, he already found his dream girl. Now he lives in an assisted living home, and he’s the oldest resident. He has thousands of pictures of his family with him, but his most prized picture is the one of his wife that he has framed over his bed.

At the time, Jennie was harvesting beans on a nearby farm in Roy. To properly pick the beans, she had to pull the plants from out of their roots and dry them for up to a week. Once the plant was dry, she shelled out the beans by hand. She earned 30 cents a day for a full day’s work. The two met at the Church of Christ in Clearfield in 1964. Jennie was a life-long member. Phillip was invited to attend by a neighbor. He came to worship every Sunday for a month before Jennie walked up to him and asked him to take her out. He was happy to convert to the southern church for his newfound girlfriend. 14 royconnection.com | Februar y 2021

It’s Time to Snowshoe! Beginners Guide to Snowshoeing BY ANN PARK

Frequently Asked Questions Q: What should I wear? A: The first mistake most people make is to dress too warmly. Snowshoeing is pretty hard if you’re going uphill, and you will work up a sweat. Dress in layers so you can adjust. Remember, the weather can change. If it gets windy, it will feel much colder. Don’t forget your gaiters. They will keep the snow from filling up your boots. Q: Do I need to have poles? A: They help with balance for beginners, and they also allow you to use more of your muscles to climb. But, if you don’t have them or don’t like to use them, you’ll be fine without poles. Q: What kind of terrain can I walk on in snowshoes? A: Almost any type. That’s the joy of snowshoes. Areas with lots of brush or uneven rocks under the snow are more difficult to walk in.

Suggested Trails Beginners –flat or gentle slopes • Bonneville Shoreline Trail • Pioneer Trail • Set track at the Nordic Center in Ogden Valley Moderate experience - steeper terrain • Coldwater Canyon Loop • Ben Lomond Trail or Lewis Peak Trail (Start at North Ogden Di vide) • Malan’s Basin Advanced Trails • Ben Lomond Peak • Cowboy’s Paradise • Ridge routes

Snowshoeing Safety Tips: Always dress for the weather, carry emergency clothes and supplies, drink plenty of water, and carry extra food. Be aware that if you climb up onto a ridge, it will very likely be much colder and windier than the rest of your route. Use the buddy-system and keep an eye on your friends. Watch for changes in the weather. It can be dangerous if visibility is suddenly reduced. Don’t get lost. Keep an eye on your location. Always make sure you have a safe route back to your car.

*

START WITH SHORT TRIPS AND EASY TERRAIN. GET USED TO YOUR GEAR, KNOW YOUR LIMITS, AND PROGRESS GRADUALLY TO HARDER TRIPS.

Avalanche Safety Tips: Check the avalanche forecast in advance and avoid high risk terrain (especially if snow conditions warrant extra caution). High risk terrain includes areas that are steep, clear of trees, have lots of rock under the snow, or have signs of previous snow slides. Here are some great local resources for more info and forecasts: www.instagram.com/ogdenavalanche utahavalanchecenter.org

Special article brought to you by Independence University

The Benefits of a Career in Business Business and business-related specialties such as finance, accounting, and business administration are some of the most popular fields of study at colleges and universities today. It’s no wonder business graduates are in high demand because business touches on pretty much every aspect of our modern society. According to one study, eight of the 10 top majors in demand by employers at the Bachelor’s degree level fall in the business category.1 You might say business makes the world go round. Let’s take a closer look at this and other benefits of a business career.

High Demand As mentioned above, those with a business background have more job security than other majors because they are needed in just about every industry out there. There is an endless number of career opportunities available to those with a solid business education. Small businesses, international corporations, nonprofits, institutions–they all need business expertise to function and prosper.2

Job Versatility A degree in business can open a multitude of career doors. Step into interrelated fields such as finance,

20 royconnection.com | Februar y 2021

insurance, sales, publishing, consulting, administration, and much more. For example, the Business Administration program at Independence University–Utah campus teaches knowledge and skills in the areas of accounting, finance, retail marketing, entrepreneurship, investment, advertising, operations management, sales management, and human resources management. You can be prepared for so many career areas with this type of degree!

More opportunities to specialize As you can see, a degree in business prepares you for a variety of businessrelated career avenues. As such, it offers more opportunities for specialization than most other fields. If you want to pick a major but are not 100% sure what you want to do the rest of your life, business is a great pick, because down the road you can try out an area and if you enjoy it, you can specialize in it.2

Expertise to start your own business Do you have a passion or hobby you would like to turn into a business? Your business background gives you the expertise you may need to get

your business off the ground. You gain the ability to think critically, problem solve, and manage your time, among other things.3 Want to become your own boss? A business degree can help to make that dream a reality. If being in a high-demand field that offers job versatility appeals to you, then a business degree may be the right career choice. Independence University is conveniently located in the Ogden area and offers business degrees in Business Administration with emphases in Human Resources, Marketing, and Technology. We offer a flexible, BlendEd format that combines in-class and online learning. Plus, you can earn your Bachelor’s degree in just 36 months! Classes start monthly. Call 801-284-3216 to learn more.

YOU HAVE VOTED AND Favorites THE RESULTS ARE IN!


2020 ISSUE 2020 FAVORITES FAVORITES ISSUE

FROM THE PUBLISHER 2020 was simultaneously an eventful and equally uneventful year. It seemed like we all stayed home and watched while the world around us was in chaos, and most of us are probably glad it is now in the rearview mirror. At Connection Publishing, 2020 was equally rewarding and challenging. We saw dear friends struggle and some even close their businesses, while others thrived and couldn’t keep inventory in place. We sincerely hope each of you continue to make the effort to shop local and support local. We are proud to be a publication where local businesses and brands are able to make themselves better known to you, our readers. As you turn the pages of these magazines each month, we hope you will choose to support our advertisers as they make this magazine possible. 2020 also marks the year that we started a new tradition for the magazine with our Favorites Readers’ Poll. Thank you to all of you who voted and made your voice heard. We wanted to hear what your favorite businesses and services in the community were this past year, and you answered the call; this special results issue is the product of your votes. One of the challenges of a Readers’ Choice Poll is finding a balance between having too many categories and not covering something important to the community. If you see something we missed, please let us know, and we can add it next year. That being said, one readers’ poll we researched before we launched our own had over 250 categories with some odd ones like “best public bathroom,” which is nice if you are in a bind with a newly potty-trained two-year-old, but maybe not something everyone would vote on. We made our initial list and then narrowed it down as best we could to have as much impact as possible. After the votes were tallied, we even knocked a few more off the list because they didn’t get enough overall votes. We also made sure to Google every business to ensure we found the correct company and spelling. With fill-in-the-blank voting like we had, it can sometimes be difficult to know for sure what someone is referring to when they might have it spelled incorrectly. We think we found everyone, though, and the results are listed in this special section. Each category you will see in the following pages is listed with 1st-place winners and runners up, with winners listed in bold and runners up listed below. In some cases, there was even a tie. It is a great accomplishment to make it on the list. People voted their mind anonymously and had to type in the name of the business for it to receive a vote. We would like to extend a congratulations to everyone on the list. Well done for being a business that your customers are willing to vote for. Keep up the good work, and we look forward to seeing you in next year’s Favorites Poll.

SEAFOOD DINNERS

YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE ON THE OCEAN TO ENJOY SEAFOOD! WE’VE ROUNDED UP OUR FAVORITE RECIPES FROM FRIENDS, READERS AND OUR RECIPE BOX. ENJOY!

Smoked Garlic Lemon Shrimp BY DAVE BOATWRIGHT

1 pound of shrimp, preferably 26/30 (large, raw, peeled, tail-on) One lemon 1 tbl black pepper 1 tbl salt 2 tbl minced garlic 1 tsp chili flakes (optional) Put rinsed shrimp in a bowl, cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into the bowl. Add salt, pepper, garlic, and chili flakes.

Mix everything together and then lay the mixture in a cast iron skillet. Place the skillet in the smoker at 225 degrees (in the oven at 250 or a on a grill on low heat) and cook until the shrimp barely start to turn pink. Pour in 2 tbl of cooking wine (I use Mirin) and 8 tbl (one cube) of butter, sliced into chunks. Keep on cooking until the shrimp are done, usually 15-20 more minutes. The shrimp will be a uniform pink. Garnish with a bit of chopped parsley, or my favorite, cilantro. It’s fun to just bring the skillet in and serve it right out of that!

Easy Baked Herb Salmon BY KRISTINA CASE

1 1/2 lb piece of fresh (not frozen) salmon cut into 3-4 equal sections 2 tbl butter, melted 1 tbl olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 tbl fresh lemon juice Fresh lemon slices rt Base or TEMPUR-Ergo r TEMPUR-Ergo Smart Base. tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves merica, LLC. All 2 rights reserved. 1 tbl fresh parsley, chopped and divided 1/2 tsp salt 1/8 tsp black pepper ®

®

Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat® liner. Arrange salmon, skin side down. Letting the salmon come to room temperature before baking will make it cook more evenly. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, chopped thyme, and ½ tablespoon chopped parsley. Spread butter mixture over top of salmon. Bake for 15-20 minutes- just until salmon is cooked and flaky. Remove from oven and serve with slices of lemon on top of each section and sprinkle with remaining fresh parsley.

SALMON BUYING TIPS Although May & June are the months you’ll see more salmon in grocery stores because that’s when its caught fresh, stores carry salmon all year round. I buy it at the butcher’s counter rather than the freezer. You might pay a little more, but it’s worth the flavor. My favorites are King which is rich and high in fat or Sockeye, a leaner, bright red flesh that has great flavor. If you prefer a milder flavor, go with Coho or Atlantic.

Shrimp Boil BY TOM LINDHARDT

A fun and unique dinner, albeit quite easy, is to do a shrimp boil. All you need to get started is a large pot to boil water and lots of stuff to add to it. This dinner can be a real crowd pleaser too. My favorite part of this meal is dumping the fresh, steaming pot out on the table in front of the guests and watching as everyone digs in! (This method may not be COVID friendly). Also commonly called a Low-Country Boil, there are plenty of recipes and tips online. The more you make it, the more successful you’ll be, and you can experiment with different ingredients. I started doing boils about 16 yrs ago after I was taught by my brother, who was taught by his neighbor. They did it regularly as neighbors and friends. We have done this for our family many times, and I have done it for church groups for 12 years in a row until COVID put the tradition on a temporary hiatus. I ended up buying a couple of 80-quart pots and strainer baskets, but we did it for years with our multiple kitchen pots and slotted spoons. If you have big pots, you can use a propane cooker outside or just do it on your kitchen stove with your pots. We have done it for as few as three to four people and for groups of 150.

YOU CAN USE ANYTHING THAT SOUNDS GOOD, BUT HERE IS LIST OF ITEMS WE LIKE TO USE AND THE APPROXIMATE COOK TIME:

The process is very basic:

Shrimp, 2-3 minutes

1. Get a pot and boil salted water. Fill the pot a little less than half-way full. Careful not to overfill so you don’t overflow the pot once you add the ingredients.

Smoked Sausage/kielbasa (precooked) 2-3 minutes just to warm through

2. Add the ingredients and seasoning in order of longest cook time to shortest: potatoes and carrots first, with shrimp last.

Potato – Small works best 10-12 minutes

Corn on the cob 6-8 minutes

Fresh (peeled) garlic cloves or whole bulbs 6-8 minutes

Baby Carrot 10-12 minutes

Onion 8-10 minutes

String Beans 4-6 minutes

Mushroom 3-5 minutes

Cabbage 6-8 minutes

Brussel Sprout 6-8 minutes

Zuccchini 4-6 minutes

Asparagus 3-5 minutes

A FEW TIPS: • • •

• • •

• • •

Get the pot of water to a good rolling boil before you add any food. Bring the water back to a rolling boil as quickly as you can after adding each food. Drain the water very thoroughly before dumping the pot out on the table. There is always more water with the food than you think there is. Only use 4-6 carrots per person. Shrimp and Sausage will be most popular. Have at least 1/2 pound of protein per person. Use wax or poly lined freezer paper as your tablecloth. It makes for easy clean up. Use raw shrimp. • Pre-cooked shrimp almost always ends up shriveled and tough. • Once the shrimp has turned white, it is cooked. Don’t overcook shrimp. • Thaw the shrimp prior to cooking. Frozen shrimp cools the boiling water a lot. Use precooked sausage. Have some seasonings and hot sauce to put on the food as you eat (Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning is my favorite). Use plenty of crab boil seasoning. I like Zatarain’s; it’s cheap and readily available at most grocery stores.

Salted Caramel Kokanee Kandee THIS RECIPE CAME FROM ONE OF ANN PARK’S FISHING BUDDIES

This recipe works well for 6-8 good-sized Kokanee Salmon. Fillet and debone the fish. Leave the skin on. Cut each fillet in 2-4 pieces, depending on what size you want. You can adjust the recipe proportions up or down, depending on your batch size. Brine: 3 cups dark brown sugar 1 cup Kosher salt Place fish pieces side by side (skin down) in a glass or plastic pan. Apply a generous amount of the brine. Be sure all meat gets covered with some brine. You can layer the fish if needed or use an additional pan. Cover and allow fish to brine in the fridge for 12-18 hours. Remove from the fridge, rinse off brine, and pat fish dry. Allow them to sit for 20-30 mins. Preheat the smoker to 200-225. For smoke, I like the competition blends, but other woods can work for fish. Place on the smoker and, after 30 minutes, baste the fish with the brine (syrup consistency). Baste the fish every 30 minutes after that until done. This is typically 2-3 hours, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Allow to cool; refrigerate or freeze for longer-term storage. Salted Caramel Sauce: 3 cups brown sugar 1-2 tbl pink Himalayan salt (I tend to like it a little lighter on the salt) ½ stick Butter Water to achieve desired consistency (syrup-like) Place ingredients into a sauce pan and heat slowly over medium heat until all the sugar crystals have liquefied. Add just a little water to start, then add little amounts at a time to get it like pancake syrup. It doesn’t need much. You will likely have to reheat the sauce as, when you take it off the heat, it will start to recrystallize.

Battered Fish BY LYNDSEY HAAS

1 cup flour ½ cup milk ½ cup water 2 tbl baking powder 1 tsp salt Around 2 lbs. of fish (pollock or cod) 6-8 tbl olive oil Whisk together the dry ingredients first, then add the milk and water. Mix until smooth. Heat 6 - 8 tablespoons of oil or enough to cover the bottom of the skillet. Cut fish into 2 ½-inch pieces and dab off any excess moisture with a paper towel. To test to see if the oil is hot enough, drop a small dollop of dough in the skillet. If it doesn’t sizzle right away, it needs to be hotter. If it explodes into a sizzle, it’s too hot. If it has a steady, even sizzle, it’s ready. Dip the fish in the batter and coat well. Set the fish in the skillet and make sure to allow enough room to flip each piece. Cook on each side for about 4 minutes or until the batter has turned golden brown. Remove the fish from the pan and place it on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve plain or with tartar sauce.
