One of the foremost genealogical archivists is Denise May Levenick, author of How to Archive Family Keepsakes, who has had many articles published most recently including “13 Tips From How to Archive Family Keepsakes” in the Winter 2013 edition of Crossroads Magazine published by the Utah Genealogical Association. The tips include naming the collection, doing no harm to the items in restoration attempts, maintaining the original order, following a “keep, skim or throw away” protocol, preserving items in archival quality containers,

preserving the heirloom originals, going paperless with digital copies in conjunction with printing less, using specific scanning procedures, planning for research success, using a checklist for your archiving goals, and having a sourcing cheat sheet. How you choose to organize these precious items determines whether they are a blessing or just another box of junk. Ms. Levenick will be the keynote speaker at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 19th in Woods Cross High School for the UGA South Davis Family History Fair. Her subject will be “Treasures in the Attic: Every Keepsake Has a Story”. This wonderful talk is free to the public.

Recycling Locally. Where?

By Lisa Willey Springville Resident

A few simple and free ways to recycling in in Springville and South County. Springville City is currently evaluating their recycle services, and until they decide on something, here are some ways individuals can be a little greener springville-recycle/ 1. Set up a basic simple recycle station in your home or garage. A few labeled cardboard boxes or bins will work great (paper, metal, plastic, etc.) 2. Save and drop off

plastic grocery bags at the grocery store on my next visit (and hopefully remember to use green bags too). 3. Save my junk mail, newspapers, and paper in a brown grocery bag, then when it’s full take the full bag (made of paper) to a collection bin in a grade school parking lot (e.g. Art City Elementary, Brookside Elementary); I think the proceeds help the PTA. There is a also a recycle bin in Spanish Fork by Tabitha’s Way. 4. Where can one recycle cardboard, bottles, and metal cans locally? 5. Once a month or so as I drive from Springville to Provo, load up my alumi-

num, metal, plastic and cardboard and take to Western Metals http://www. locations-directory I might get a dollar or two for my metals, and can drop off the plastic and cardboard in their donation bins as well. 6. Have you heard of There’s a group in Springville. “It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers. Membership is free.

Please email and let us know where to recycle cardboard, bottles, and metal cans in South County. Shall we care for this beautiful Earth?

My Family and I attended the Holi Festival of Colors for the first time this year. The festival is held in Spanish Fork, Utah and celebrates Spring. I have wanted to attend for a couple of years now, but the timing was never right. We attended the festival on Easter Sunday. I was hoping to avoid the HUGE crowds that attend on Saturday. We arrived early, at 11:15. The festival started at 11:00 and had a good amount of people there already, but we had no problem parking and walking to the temple, nor did we have any issues with traffic when we left a couple of hours later. Here are some helpful hints if you want to attend the Festival of Colors. ARRIVE EARLY. It was so nice to be able to find a parking spot within close

walking distance to the Temple. When we left at 1 or so, parking was scarce, and traffic was terrible. WEAR CLOTHES THAT CAN BE THROWN AWAY. The color seemed to come out of our darker clothing, like jeans and blue shorts. The white t-shirts were history. Keep that in mind when attending. I noticed on the website it said there was a place just for observing, but when you walk into the gates, the color throwing begins, so I’m not sure how you would ever stay clean unless you wear a garbage bag or saran wrap around your clothing. There was a man that walked in with an off white suit? I’m not sure what he was thinking but he may as well have been wearing a bullseye. BRING A BANDANA OR MASK. This will help shield your nose and mouth when the color throwing ceremonies take place. If

you have asthma, stand to the outer edge of the circle or stand clear of it all together. It’s like a giant chalk cloud when everyone is throwing it in the air at once. WEAR SUNGLASSES OR GOGGLES. These will help protect your eyes when people throw color. There are a few people that throw color towards your face, just a warning. BRING CASH. The bags of color were $10 for 5 different colors. Meals were around $6. They did have an ATM on the property, but just come prepared. Things were priced very reasonably on the temple grounds. ONLY BUY COLORS FROM INSIDE THE TEMPLE GROUNDS.

Wildlife Safety Challenge

Students and faculty at Foothills Elementary in Salem, Utah enjoyed an assembly from A.R.T.S., Inc. (Artistic Resource for Teachers and Students). The Acting-Up Theater Company

performed the show “ActAdemics”. It was a fun, energetic, and very educational performance. The performing group used theater puppetry, and audience participation to

demonstrate how dance, drama, and music can be integrated with math, reading, and science every day. Submitted by Coral Lee Findlay. Seniors on a Tuesday or Wednesday come down to the Payson Senior Center between 10 and 2 to hone your carving skills.

Be Responsible

Owning a pet is a big responsibility, sometimes too big. Finding a new home for a pet can be hard, especially for an exotic pet like a snake. Not everyone likes snakes, which may explain why some pet owners have chosen to leave their Burmese pythons in the wild in the Florida Everglades. Burmese pythons come from Asia. They do not belong in the Florida Everglades, but more and more of them are being found there. Some escaped there during the hurricanes. Some were left there by pet owners. Burmese pythons eat a lot, and because of that, there are fewer raccoons, possums and rabbits in the Everglades, making for less food for other animals. The pythons are also eating larger animals, like alligators, deer and panthers. Burmese pythons are a big problem in the Everglades, and to stop them from wiping out some animal species and moving into other areas of Florida, wildlife officials now have programs in place that make it harder for pet owners to get a Burmese python. There are also programs to remove the snakes from the area.

Sleep Wisdom or Baad Sleep

By Trudy Peck Parenting 911


othergoose does not claim to be any sort of expert in the area of sleep disorders, nor is it possible in this small space to make note of all of their forms, causes and effects. But I have been reminded recently of how important teaching children good sleep habits can be. So, when you are tempted to give up trying to help your young ones sleep when they’re supposed to and not when they’re not, consider these thoughts. When I asked my teenagers what they wanted to do for spring break, the first response was, “Sleep!” Growing children never seem to get enough time catching Zzzs. To these young people, sleeping all day, even all week, seems like a dream come true. But what happens when this is really possible? When sleeping all day every day is an actual reality? Picture a mother whose children are all in school, able to get up and get there on their own. The older children look out for the

younger ones, getting them off to school while Mom finishes out her sleep. Or consider a dad between jobs who has such an accumulated sleep debt that he feels he can never catch up. They sleep away the day, barely able to function when their family needs them. Then when the kids go to bed at night, insomnia kicks in and Mom or Dad spends the night frittering away the time doing mindless, fruitless things until sleep actually arrives because they are too tired to do anything constructive. And then when they do find employment, they struggle keeping a job because it requires them to actually get up every day on a regular basis. Not only does unregulated sleep make family life insecure, but sleeping more than is needful or at odd hours, can be a cause of depression, affecting the emotional well being of the entire family. Unhealthy sleep patterns in adults, especially those with children depending on them, do not paint a pretty picture. Bad sleeping does not begin at graduation. When you feel the urge to be your child’s friend instead of parent by letting him stay up and watch one more episode, when you don’t think it’s that big of a deal to ignore when your child is turning out the light, when you fail to teach healthy sleep choices, look


down the road a few years to where this pattern can lead. Your child may be the one to grow up to be the unproductive, deadbeat father, the emotionally absent mother. Your grandchildren could be the ones to look out for themselves and their younger siblings while mom and dad are in dreamland. Your own kin might be the ones with disrupted lives because of the inability to provide for the family because of Baaad Sleep. But if we instill in our children early on the understanding that good sleep habits will help them deal with what life will throw at them later, if we teach them how to exercise a little self control now, if we teach them to say “No” to their urges to stay up past a reasonable hour, we are giving our children an invaluable gift. If I took the time to search the internet, I’m sure I could find sleep studies all over the place citing how people who go to bed and get up early are more productive, more successful, more healthy and happy. But I just know, because of my own choices and the choices of others, that my family is better off because my mom and dad made me go to bed. They taught me to use the night for sleeping and the day for living. And I am so grateful for that! Thank you, THANK YOU Mom and Dad!

Promoting Humility What are our youth up to at school? By Jesse Fisher Thoughts on Zion

Before we explore something both Babylon and Zion have in common, let’s take a closer look at two conclusions we came to in a previous column: “Pride is the steppingstone to Babylon” and “Humility is the steppingstone to Zion”. How can pride lead to Babylon and humility to Zion? Imagine wearing a pair of glasses. The left lens is the pride lens, the right, humility. The lens through which we view our neighbors directly determines whether we are moving towards Babylon or Zion. The pride lens is the belief that we need to be betterthan (or even less-than) others. We seek to prove our value to an often long-dead “stressor” parent or to ourselves. We do that by belittling others. We imagine reasons why we are better than they are; we have more money, nicer clothes, houses, or cars, we went to college, or we have important callings in the ward or stake. These all tempt us to see ourselves as superior to others, thus giving evidence of our worth. Unfortunately, habitually viewing others through the lens of pride leads us to act in ways that draws us towards a corrupt and violent society. History is replete

with examples of groups that were mocked and derided by others, and then condemned and persecuted. Once these attitudes become expressed in new laws, the government becomes as corrupt as the hearts of the people. This opens the gate to wholesale plundering, pogroms and gas chambers, accompanied by the tyranny of those who think they know better than “the masses” – Babylon at its best. In sharp contrast, we can view our neighbors and family members through the lens of humility – enlightened by the truth that “all men are created equal”. Seeing others as being of equal and infinite worth as ourselves makes it impossible for us to condemn and persecute them. In fact, it is only by looking through the lens of humility that we can keep the second great commandment of loving our neighbor as ourselves. Using the lens of humility makes cooperation, compassion, kindness, patience and peace possible. We simply cannot be of one heart and one mind unless we habitually view others with humility. I invite you to download a graphical representation of the Two Lenses and study the supporting verses found there. See © 2013 by Jesse Fisher

Moms came in and the students showed their moms how they could do math while enjoying a muffin. Moms were wowed by the activities and games their children were engaged in. Enen Miss Murdock’s mom, Janine Murdock, took time away from Springville Jr. High to be a “Mom”. Thank you, moms for taking time out of your busy mornings to come and do math with us.

Jason Buhler, the current band leader at Maple Mountain High, exclaims, “I love watching Landon do what he loves!” This has been such an incredible opportunity to see students from two different high schools be so welcoming. Landon enjoys conducting so much that he shows up to the game an hour early to find out if the pep band will be performing. Dave Boyack replied, “Landon is one of those kids you like to have around.” This is evident as both Maple Mountain and Spanish Fork High Schools welcome Landon and allow him to do what he loves.
