Life after addiction


Dreaming of a new playground for Salem

By Holly I. Meagher Local Resident


he temperatures outside may be freezing, but for Dream View Park in Salem the vision is for warm sunny days, and children playing on new playground equipment. The project is being driven by a neighborhood mom who was a child herself when the current playground was installed more than 20 years ago. The dream is to replace the tires, swing set and geo-dome with a modern playground complete with slides, swings and climbing accessories. Salem’s Mayor Brailsford and the City Council are highly supportive of the project, however, construction of a new playground in not part of the City’s budget. The new Dream View playground will have to be funded by private contributions coming from residents and area businesses. Planning, researching and fundraising for a new

playground can take a long time. But with the support of the community the hope is to have it ready for installation in three months, not the typical three years. The fundraising goal for the new playground is $25,000. That is only 25 contributions $1,000 or 50 of $500. Donations are tax deductible. All donors will have their name listed on a commemorative plaque displayed at the new playground. This project will transition Dream View Park from Salem’s ‘forgotten park’ to one of its best playgrounds. More information is available by contacting: Salem City Councilman Aaron Cloward 801-372-9190 or Holly I. Meagher 801-368-9327

By Ginny Ackerson Springville Resident

Women’s maiden names are sometimes difficult to determine, especially if the family was moving frequently and the marriage record hasn’t been found. There are several ways of determining the birth name of a woman if you are unable to find a marriage record. First try and locate her death record. If you are searching before local governments kept official records there are several alternatives. Obituaries and wills frequently mention parents or brothers and sisters. If they mention parents or brothers, you will have her maiden name. However, if they only mention sisters you may have to find the sisters’ death records, wills or obituaries to see if their maiden name is mentioned. Check the birth or christening records of all of the woman’s children. Also check the children’s marriage and death records to see if their mother’s maiden name was mentioned. Another alternative is to check burial records from the local churches or cemetery sexton’s office. Also check headstone inscriptions as some women have their maiden names as

part of the inscription. Census records are also a good place to check. Sometimes you will find parents or siblings living with the family or the young couple may have been living with her parents at some point. Check all the wills and land records that mention her married surname. Many times family members will mention something like “To my sister, Mary, and her husband John Smith” or “To my daughter, Susan Jones” thus establishing the familial relationship and her maiden name. Court records are a great place to find maiden names. It is amazing how many times you will find family members suing each other over land, personal possessions or money. Military pension records

are another place to look. Most pension applications were filed when the former soldiers were older or deceased and their children were married. The soldiers or their widows would list when and where they were married and then list their adult children; the daughters would appear with their married names. Naming patterns also help determine maiden names. My 2ggfather was named Wacey Clarke, his father was George Wasey Clarke and his father was John Wasey Clarke who was born to Daniel Clarke and Lydia Wacey. If one of the children has an unusual name, it may be a clue to the mother’s family name. Contact if you need genealogical help.

Letter to Editor

Dear Editor of Serve Daily, I recently met a lady at work that changed my view of Valentine’s Day. She goes to one of the local Senior Center’s here in Springville and gives each senior a Valentine. She has done this for many years. She makes little treat bags with a little saying stapled to the bag. The little saying says, “Everyone Deserves A Valentine.” She loves giving them out. Even if she knows them or has just met them she still wants them to know that they are loved. We all know that being single on Valentine’s Day can be hard. Many have called the day “Single Person’s Awareness Day!” but as I listened to this sweet lady and what she does on Valentine’s Day I quickly learned that if we want to be loved we have to give love even if we don’t get any love back. We don’t always have to show romantic love on Valentine’s Day. We can show our love through the little acts we do for each other everyday. Little random acts of kindness can grow into something bigger than we thought. So on this Valentine’s Day I would challenge each of us to think “Everyone Deserves A Valentine.” Valentine’s come in all kinds of ways from a smile in passing tohelping someone in need. Who will you give a Valentine to this Valentine’s Day? [Editor comment- Granted, this paper came out on Valentine’s Day, but, if we pretend every day is Valentine’s Day or Christmas, imagine how caring we can be ALL YEAR!] From, Your Neighbor in Springville.

By Tristan Anderson ing popular really mean? you. They will stand by your SF Junior High Having more friends or side for the most ridiculous

of reasons, even if they do not agree with it themselves. Although they may be crazy, your friends make you feel happy about yourself. Being popular is having friends who learn to deal with you and your faulty side. Popularity is how many lives you have touched, and how many smiles you have created. Popularity is about how many people are lined up to see you one last time before your body is buried. Throughout our lives, we have to decide whats important; how cool we are or how many people we can give our love to. After all, we will never know just how popular we are until the day we die.

more enemies? Being so called “popular” changes people. I have had many good friends in my childhood who were taken in by popular people, and they transformed into a new person. They had a different personality, different likes, and obviously different friends. Those friends decided that I was not cool enough to hang out with them anymore, and as a result, I was pushed out of their lives. Popularity, in my mind, is about having friends or people in your life who care about you and your goals. They will help you succeed and progress. They’ll help you see who the real you is, and not try to change you or your opinions, but help you find better solutions for hard to solve problems. They will teach you and learn from

Society tries to trick us into thinking that popularity is about the people we hang out with, the way we dress, and the things that we do. Many of us have fallen for it; look at the way our schools have turned out. Children are being bullied and teased about the clothes they can’t afford, and the things that they can’t afford to do. Teachers and Administrators are blinded; they cannot see the way that students are treating each other. To our teachers, the students who are well behaved, have good grades, and strive to do their best are considered popular. Sometimes popularity is attached to peer pressure; a student may pressure another into doing something wrong and their reward -popularity! However, what does be-

Grimm meets Disney. That’s how director Chase Ramsey describes his concept for SCERA’s upcoming Theatre for Young Audiences production of “Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale.” That’s because the Utah premiere of the production combines many of the elements of the original Grimm story but puts a happy twist on it reminiscent of Disney’s animated hit “Tangled” - making it a charming new musical. The one-hour musical will offer public performances on Mondays and Fridays @ 7pm from Feb. 18 - March 8. Reserved-seat tickets are for $6 for

pers, potato chip bags and whatever litter she has gleaned from the forest. Ramsey is thrilled about his cast, including popular actress Kelly Coombs Johnson as Rapunzel, who is regularly seen in lead roles at theatres up and down the Wasatch Front. The set, designed by Nat Reed, has a large tower that turns and opens into Rapunzel’s room. Reed also created a 20foot puppet for the dragon, Socrates, which will be operated and voiced by Shawn Mortensen, and is sure to be an exciting highlight for kids of all ages. Other performers include Taylor Eliason, Julie Nevin, Samantha Frisby, Brandon Haden, Jillian Ormond, and Justin Stockett. SCERA President & CEO Adam J. Robertson loves the Theatre for Young Audiences program. “It’s so neat to see kids experience the magic of live theatre, many for the very first time.

Name Name That That Title Title

A Big Job When a movie begins, the names of people that helped make it are usually listed. At the top of the list is a person known as the producer. Producers have a big job. They are the ones who make the movie happen. They find a script, hire a director, help cast actors and put together a film crew. They are also in charge of the money needed to make the movie. Because the job is so big, movies often have more than one producer. While one producer might deal with the money, another might deal with the film crew and actors.

n this powerful fantasy novel about the ageold battle of good vs. evil, Chris J. Slaugh develops a unique plot that will appeal to readers worldwide. Humans have stopped believing in magical creatures, and as a result, their existence is depleting. In a last-ditch effort to survive, the magical creatures have used their remaining abilities to transform themselves into humans. They intend to mate with other humans and carry on their powers in a new race known as the “Fallen.” But it isn’t only the good magical creatures that reproduce; the evil creatures have also merged with humans, and their offspring are in a battle with the others to take back the land. Enjoy a quest for redemption in The Dragon Ruler: Book 1 Revenge. Drake must carry on his father’s birthright and fulfill his duty as the descendent of the Dragon Ruler. He absorbs the powers bestowed upon him by his father and discovers them little by little throughout his journey,

amazed by each ability he possesses and is able to use in his fight. The characters are in a constant state of war, both sides putting all of their power and energy into a cause they believe to be their destiny. Chris’ description of battle scenes and the command behind the magic are evident in the details behind each character’s ability. A play-by-play of the action surrounding each encounter between characters is the glue that holds together a novel with so many dimensions that otherwise would cause confusion. His tale is visually graphic, so much so that readers will envision this prose in their minds as if it’s a movie in their minds without a pause for reflection. The intensity with which each creature handles the struggles and battles that stand as obstacles in the way of progress is unmatched in today’s fantasy literature. The characters battle ghosts, werewolves, skeletons, and vampires as they strive to uphold the legacy of their parents. Dragon Ruler: Book 1 Re-

Chris J. Slaugh

venge is Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings where elements of magical creatures and devotion to friends and family combine with an epic battle for the preservation of the world in its peaceful state, battling the forces of evil at every turn while maintaining bravery and morality. By combining many elements of fantasy, Chris J. Slaugh has managed to create an all-encompassing novel that will amaze fantasy readers and fulfill the desire for magical creatures of every kind instead of lumping together specific groups that have typically co-existed. With an ending that only invigorates the reader more Dragon Ruler: Book 1 Revenge will have readers thirsting for the next installment of the Dragon Ruler series. Chris J.

Driving down I-15 toward St. George, I saw a billboard proclaiming, “Buy this $250,000.

he Peteetneet Museum and Cultural Arts Center is a historical landmark in Payson. The Victorian style building was designed by a local Utah County architect, Richard C. Watkins. He also designed the Knight Block and the Maeser School in Provo, and the public school in Spring City. He also designed the home of C. F. (Jack Dixon) in Payson among other residences. The building was initially designed for a school and was built on a hill east of the business district. The site had been the city gravel bed prior to the time the city agreed to let the Payson School District have it for the location for a new school. The double block was signed over to the school district April 2, 1897. Initial construction on the school started later and the building was ready when classes started in January 1901. First through Eighth Grades attended the school in the beginning. When Nebo School District was created several years later, the building and property were turned over to them for operation. The building served as an elementary school for Payson students until 1988. The Peteetneet was named after the Ute Indian Chief, Peteetneet, who lived near the creek that runs through what is now Payson. Although he died on December 23, 1861, the Peteetneet School was named

$200,000 in equity. You also have $100,000 in savings or in your 401K. This would enable you to pay $300,000 for your “dream home.” This would probably be the last home you would buy in your lifetime. This would exhaust your available cash reserves. Not a very wise decision for a senior citizen. You could still make that “dream home” purchase by investing $120,000 down and getting a “reverse mortgage” for $180,000 and have no payments for the rest of your life. Plus you would still have $180,000 in the bank for emergencies. In simple terms this is an overview of the possibilities for this type of mortgage. This type of loan is not for everyone. You must know the pitfalls and the cautions. Contact a loan officer who is familiar with this program. It is complicated, but it may work for some. Until next month, keep smiling.

#223: Pease Porridge Hot  •  Food Storage

Peteetneet Museum & Cultural Arts By Dee Stevenson President of PPP

inquiry, I found out it had something to do with a “reverse mortgage,” officially known as the FHA insured HECM mortgage. This mortgage is a device to help senior citizens free up some of their equity. They may use these loan funds any way they wish—take the money in monthly increments to supplement their social security or retirement income. Or, they might take the complete loan proceeds in a lump sum. This could be helpful to those who lost great sums in their retirement savings through their 401K programs or individual stock and bond portfolios. Not only can you refinance your present home under this loan program, you can also purchase another home. The catch is that you must purchase it with a rather large down payment. Your down payment plus the proceeds from the new HECM mortgage would pay for the new home purchase. Let’s say you wanted to buy a new home. You have sold your present home and have

would last for quite some time – even longer than the nine days that the rhyme talked about. (Maybe that is where I envision the porridge being green.) Knowing that they didn’t enjoy the wonders of refrigeration in those days and thinking about the stew sitting in that hot and cold pot day and night, and day and night, and day and night, well, it just made me want to build a really good food storage with lots of variety so that I could avoid eating the same stuff over, and over, and over. Actually, my dad did make a variation of that stew once. He put together a delectable soup that was tomato based, instead of pea based, and he added zucchini and beans and a variety of other vegetables. Then he decided that the soup needed a grain and the grain of his choice was barley. I love barley, and I still do – in spite of that soup. We knew that barley expanded, but what happened to us was ridiculous. We ate our fill that night and then we put the leftovers in the fridge for lunch the next day. The next morning when we opened the fridge we were all shocked – the soup had grown. We had as much soup by volume as when my dad had first made it! It was actually quite solid and not much like soup anymore.

My dad added another quart of stewed tomatoes and warmed it up. It actually tasted better the next day because the spices had developed and melded with each other and it tasted great. No big deal; it wasn’t as if we had never eaten leftovers. But then, it just kept on growing. It really did get to be a bit of a joke and every day we would go to the fridge to see how much it grew during the night. After about of week of teasing him, and eating the soup, my dad couldn’t take it anymore and he threw the rest of it away. I’ll bet that if he had let it go, it would probably still be growing today. Now when I add barley to my soups, I am very judicious with the amount I add. Tailor your food storage to your families eating habits, work on building it every week, and maybe you won’t have to sit in the corner eating your Christmas pie and pulling out plums. Instead you can sit at your table eating anything you want and sharing with your friends and family. Love that food storage! And remember that if you have a soup you really like, just add barley – it will last longer. Browse on over to to find more articles.

Although it doesn’t appear to have helped my career much, studying Mathematics at BYU did actually benefit me — I learned deductive reasoning. “If all frogs are green” and “Johnny has a frog”, then we can deduce “Johnny’s frog must be green”. Simple logic. Now let’s apply the same deductive reasoning to the topic of this column, Zion, and see what happens. President Benson said that “Pride is the great stumbling block to Zion” And Elder D. Todd Christopherson said, “The antithesis and antagonist of Zion is Babylon”, which we’ll simplify here as “Babylon is the opposite of Zion”. It should also be obvious that the opposite of a

Mapleton Jr. High School is pleased to announce the January 2013 Students of the Month. Each academic area selects one outstanding student per grade level to represent their department for student of the month. In order to be selected these students must show superior academic achievement along with exceptional citizenship. The MJHS students of the month were invited to a pizza party to

stumbling block is a stepping-stone; one limits progress, and the other assists it. And, the opposite of pride, of course, is humility. So, if we assume that: Pride is the great stumbling block to Zion, Babylon is the opposite of Zion, The opposite of a stumbling block is a steppingstone, and The opposite of pride is humility… Then, we can deduce the following: Pride is the great steppingstone to Babylon. Humility is the great steppingstone to Zion, and Humility is the great stumbling block of Babylon. The tricky thing about deductive reasoning is that just because a deduction follows logically does not necessarily mean it is true. It may only be a valid conclu-

sion. It may also be false, if one or more of the given assumptions upon which the conclusion is being made is false. For example, our first deduction above, “Johnny’s frog must be green” may actually be false, given that all frogs in fact, aren’t green. In short, if we make false assumptions, our conclusions are likely to be false as well. I first made these deductions over a year ago, and have yet to find anything that contradicts them in the writings of the prophets and apostles, ancient or modern. I believe that both my assumptions and the deductions that spring from them are both valid and true. If you want to try your hand at applying deductive reasoning to the subject, you may learn a few interesting things. Sit down with a copy of President Ezra Taft Benson’s landmark talk,

celebrate this fantastic accomplishment.

“Beware of Pride”. Extract from it simple statements concerning pride, such as, “Pride is essentially competitive in nature” and “Pride leads to national destruction.” Then, substitute an even number of terms in each statement with their opposites and ask yourself if the results are true. For example, “Pride is essentially competitive in nature” turns into “Humility is essentially cooperative in nature.” Does that ring true? Does it fit with the scriptures? What about, “Humility leads to national prosperity.”? This exercise brought me to a greater understanding of both pride and humility; I believe it will do the same for the reader who makes the effort. © 2013 by Jesse Fisher, Salem, Utah.

CERT trains ASK

By Sequoia Knippenberg Merit Student

CERT IS A PROGRAM that trains people for disaster preparedness. It teaches you skills for when a natural disaster happens and what to do during and after the disaster. You learn important skills such as light search and rescue, fire safety, medical operations, disaster psychology, organization, and what to do during a terrorist attack. Here at Merit Academy we have the unique opportunity to have two CERT members (Karrie Beardall and Martin Palmer) come and take our ASK service class through the eight week CERT training course. So far we have learned light search and rescue, some medical operations, and now we are going into the psychology of a natural disaster. So far this class is very helpful and it’s

very fun and exciting to learn about. In January the CERT members came in to teach us about light search and rescue and how to carry injured people out of a disaster situation. Our class practiced cribbing to help remove someone trapped under an object and we learned how to quickly remove debris from an area. We then learned how

Just Like Me Doll for Millie

Blythe’s mother (Jill) and Blythe - Creators of “Just Like Me” dolls.

By Cat McNeece Merit Student


wanky Janes is a local mother/ daughter business that sells “Uniquely handmade cloth dolls, whimsical softies, Miss Jane purses, and more” ( It’s this mother/daughter duo’s mission “To design and create quality, one of a kind cloth dolls, softies, and other items to help bring smiles to faces, comfort to hearts, and joy to souls.” One of their most recent additions is their Just-Like-Me dolls and buddies. While in the designing stage, P.S. I Adore You, an online market that raises

money for children with cancer, contacted them and asked if they wanted to sell their other dolls on the site and a percentage would go to a cancer patient every month; they decided to take it a step further. The Gifford girls have the family send in pictures of the cancer patient, then they create a doll to look like him or her, complete with a removable wig and cap. Now they donate a “Just Like Me” doll every month to P.S.’s spotlighted cancer patient, along with a Just-LikeMe story book with pictures of the child and their story. Jill and Blythe love the idea of girls being able to play with their Swanky

Jane doll, and then keep them to pass them on. These are unique and one-of-a-kind dolls that they hope girls of all ages will cherish and love. The Gifford girls come up with each design so they are each different and unique, by using a variety of up cycled, vintage, and new materials. They’ve designed several different doll lines to suit different ages. They say, “Every girl should have a Swanky Jane” For more information, to buy, or find more details on their other dolls and soft toys go to You can also find some of their dolls and softies for sale at The Nest on Main, a local boutique in Springville.

Annual Inspirations Art Contest By Courtney Garcia Merit Student


very year, the students at Merit Academy (7th-12th grade) participate in the annual statewide “Inspirations” art contest.

Students can submit any art work they would like (a maximum of one in each category) that they feel goes along with the theme “Beauty is...” which can be portrayed in a variety of ways. It could be a dance

that shows beauty, a photograph or drawing of something beautiful, lyrics to a song, or poetry that shows beauty. Many students from Merit entered the contest but only 16 first and second place entries will move on to the regional competition.

A big change happened at the Nebo School Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, January 9, 2013. The 6:00 p.m. School Board meeting started with Rod Oldroyd expressing his gratitude for the School Board, employees, students, and patrons of Nebo School District. He said he was proud of being a part of the many accomplishments in the district over the past six years of his service. Rod said, “The employees of Nebo work for more than money. Their work shows the love that they have for the students of this district and their desire for the student’s success.” Then he thanked the voters for allowing him to serve and stated obligations to his family, career, and ecclesiastical calling as Stake President as the reasons for his resigning effective on February 13, 2013. Four school board members were sworn back into office for a returning term. They are K.L. Tischner, Dean Rowley, Christine Riley, and Randy Boothe.

My dad and I were walking around the Orem Wal-Mart around Christmas time, and money was tight for our little family. We were looking for a gift for my sister, who had just turned 12. We were seeking something more functional than just a “toy”, so we were searching in the bicycle isle. As we were walking through; my dad and I spotted two kids who were riding bikes through the section. They looked happy, and were enjoying their short ride. One of the little kids, who couldn’t have been older than twelve, ended up running over my foot. I was fine with it, since I wear boots, but their mother stormed up immediately and grabbed both of the kids. “But mom,” one argued, “we like those bikes.” “Yeah,” the other agreed, “can we have them for Christmas?” She shook her head as she pulled them away from the isle. “You know we can’t afford them,” she stated. And what happened next still shocks me. My dad pulled out his wallet, looking at the lady. “Hey,” he had called after her, “ma’am; no child should be without a bike on Christmas.” He handed her enough money to buy the bikes. The boys were beaming like kids in a candy shop, and the mother was actually crying, thanking my father repeatedly. To this day, I know that any kind act, no matter how big or small, can go a very long way. Submitted by Davy Hollingshead student at Springville High School

Abbey hopes to have an additional voting booth for young voters at the next formal election to allow them the experience of voting, even if it won’t count in the final tally.
