Spanish Fork Senior Citizen Center appreciates all the volunteers By Chris Baird Serve Daily Editor
he Spanish Fork Senior Citizen Center is full of amazing and cheerful people. On Friday, January 4, 2013 I visited for the Monthly Membership Luncheon and met some wonderful new friends. As I walked around, looking lost, Ralph and Patricia Allen (Volunteer In State Tour directors) waved me over. Ralph and Patricia have been married for 6.5 years, after each had been married for 46.5 years. Ralph used to play hillbilly music and they enjoy the entertainment during the luncheons. I hadn’t planned on eating at the event, since I am 27 years shy of 60, but Ralph waved someone over and got me a plate. Thank you Ralph, the cooks, the volunteer, and all who serve. Lydia Money provided live entertainment, she played half a dozen songs on the piano or guitar, and sang. A couple of the songs were, “A Thousand Miles”, and “Summertime”. Volunteer entertainers are in need;
please contact Linda Averett at (801) 367-6685. If you can sing, dance, juggle, perform magic, or perform something fun we would love to have you come and entertain us for about a half an hour. The monthly membership meals (typically around 350 people come) are free with the annual $20 dues due each September. Members are encouraged to bring their own utensils and plates. The meal was delicious beef, carrots, homemade style roll (Thanks Joyce), and natural smashed potatoes with a big piece of brownie cake. I’ve been told that once a month they are treated to Joyce Webb’s delicious cinnamon rolls, I’ll have to see if I can taste one of those… Hope I don’t have to wait till I’m 60! Connie and Lester Dickey, volunteer once a month, and have done so for the last two years. Each Monday and Thursday at Noon are “Mini-Meals” (typically around 175 people come) where a two dollar donation is accepted. Anyone over 60 see SENIOR, page 7

If you want to read an adventurous Sci-Fi Fantasy novel about a girl from the 1600s who discovers she has magical powers, then you should read the book The Children of Eliza: Unearthed by Springville High’s very own Jessalyn Adamson. Adamson is a junior at SHS and has written and published her very own book. She is an inspiration for all young authors to work hard; and, if you want to get your work out there, it is possible. From writing to publishing Adamson had to be dedicated to her work and be prepared to work hard to get her book published. For Adamson to get her book published, she had to be outgoing and find a publisher that would publish her book. When she secured a publisher, she had to get all the details approved for the book; finally, she had to sign an agreement with her publisher. For her to publish her book, she had to not only put forth the time but the money as well, $1,400 dollars to be exact. For the theme of her book, she turned to consumers to find an idea. She submitted questions into Yahoo Answers about what was a good idea to write about. Many people answered back on what she should write about, but went with the one that was the most appealing to her. For Adamson to write her entire book, it took nine months including editing and revising. Adamson is working on a new book called No Regrets and also a sequel to The Children of Eliza: Unearthed. If you want to purchase her book, you can buy it from her for $14 or online from Barnes and Noble or Xibris for $20. by Robert Jackson and Candice Lee, SHS Staff Writers
Mapleton Jr. ART CITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in Springville, held its annual chess tournament on Saturday December 5, 2012. The chess tournament was a really fun opportunity for students who are kindergarten through sixth grade to participate. Students came from all over Nebo school district and faced each other in chess.

There were students that were sad because they didn’t get a trophy or didn’t get first place but some were very happy that they just got a medal and some were very happy that they got a trophy. Adam Krieger ACE reporter said “I think that the chess tournament is a very cool thing to do and to test your skills against others from around Nebo School District.

Here at Springville High we do this in many ways. The student council thinks of creative activities and decorations to bring the Christmas spirit into our halls. A special way they did that this year was in working with Oakridge School students in performing a festive play. Senior Aaron Brown, Student Council Treasurer and his partner, Chase, were elephants. Brown said, “My favorite part was working with Chase because he’s awesome. Each student council member had fun working with the kids from L. KOBIE WILKERSON visited Cherry Creek Elemen- Oakridge, and the play was a success.” tary to teach about writing and share his love of reading and By Kat Smith and Dc. Hollingshead, SHS Staff Writers education. Mr. Wilkerson spent lunch with the faculty answering questions they may have about his teaching and consulting background. Afterwards assemblies were held in small groups so he could share how he developed his book ideas, share digital versions of his book as well as answer IFA questions the students had about him. Copies of his book 250 Arrowhead Trail • Spanish Fork "Queen Infinity" were provided for each teacher and staff (801) 798-7418 member, where he gladly signed each copy. Mrs. Morrise's 5th grade class received a personal audience with him during their library time. Mr. Wilkerson spent his week in Utah visiting other schools and sharing similar messages. We appreciate him coming and inspiring our students to find their inner writer. By Sarah Sumsion, photo by Mike Duncan

Salem City asked the students at Mt. Loafer Elementary to help make Christmas special this year by creating beautiful luminaries for the Salem City Cemetery. Many students went to work with Mrs. Bluth, our Art Specialist, to make these special lanterns that will light up the cemetery on Christmas Eve. Pictured here is April Nelson, who spent a long time making a beautiful Christmas tree that will help light up the Salem Cemetery. Thanks, Mt. Loafer Students! Submitted by: Larraine Nelson

Joke s and Riddles Behind the Scenes Have you ever seen a concert and thought how cool it would be to sing to hundreds of fans? While performing can be fun, it can also be a lot of work. Most concerts are part of a tour that travels from town to town, usually by bus for several weeks at a time. In addition to spending a lot of time on the road, performers must also spend a lot of time practicing at each stop on the tour. They must make sure their equipment is set up right, they can move around the stage freely and they sound great. While on tour, performers might also have to attend special events, do interviews, meet with fans and sign autographs. It all depends upon how big the tour is and what the people putting on the tour want.
A: You can’t “tuna” a fish.

Roller Derby Darlins -Tryouts By Danica Levanger Derby Darlin
appy Valley Derby Darlins was established in January of 2011. We met for the first time at a local roller skating rink. Most of the girls hadn’t been on quad skates in more than a decade and many had littleto no knowledge of Roller Derby. Natalie Swenson (a.k.a Raggedy Slamm), our President and co-founder, was the one with the knowledge of the game and starting a league. She along with her cousin Danica Levanger (a.k.a Lil’ Misfit) set up a board right away to take care of all of the business end and we began practicing every Monday. We have been recruiting skaters and officials for over a year now and some have come and gone but we still have a great group of core girls and officials that are in it to stay. We currently rent a warehouse that is registered with WFTDA (women’s flat track derby association) where we practice 2-3 times a week. The season goes from March to October and during that time we hold bouts for the public twice a month. The league consists of 3 home teams and one Travel Team. We are a Not for Profit Organization so we donate a portion of our profits to different charities around the county. Off season we still train hard and on occasion hold scrimmages for the public to watch. Since the formation of our league we have played by the WFTDA rule set and trained our new skaters to pass WFTDA minimum skills. We plan to continue in this path and now that we are accepted into the Apprentice Program we will meet all
WFTDA membership requirements to remain in good standing. We plan to take our league to the next level. We want to allow our skaters the opportunity to become the best skaters they can and compete against the best out there. Our first public bout was in March of 2012 and since then we have help build the image of roller derby as a true sport in our community. We are excited to continue to learn and grow as a league and take our derby experience to the next level. We hold try-outs every twelve weeks with the next one coming up Tuesday January 22nd, at 7:00pm. Try-outs will be held at our current warehouse 784 E Chappel Drive Spanish Fork, UT (the old Food For Less). We are looking for skaters and skating, non-skating Referees! You must be 18 or older. Try-outs are only for those that have serious intention to join. NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! We train you from the start you will go through a 12-week training class starting with the basics. You will be placed on a team after the 12-week course is over and basic assessments are passed. You need the proper gear to start: quad skates, helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, wrist guards and mouth guard. Find us on Facebook “HappyValleyDerbyDarlins” or www.happyvalleyderbydarlins.com or email us at email@example.com We are also looking for sponsors for the 2013 season if interested please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org there are several packages available.

Holding a babe: instilling self-esteem
By Trudy Peck Parenting 911
hen you sit and rock a newborn infant for the first time and smooth his wrinkled little fingers, who can adequately describe the feeling that overcomes you? There is something in this little package of fragrant, warm, squeaky, wiggly baby that touches something inside of you and melts even in the most cynical of hearts. This amazing something has to come from somewhere. Discovering where this somewhere is and teaching your little one as he grows is the most basic, core, real part of building his self-esteem. Your newborn has yet to do much that you can brag about, no home runs, pirouettes, potty training or song and yet you love him anyway. He can’t help with the dishes to prove his worth. He has yet to display his mechanical talent and although he has not yet learned to tell you, “NO!” he
also cannot say “I love you.” So what is it about him that you love, just by holding and feeling who he is? It is exactly “Who He Is” that you must help him discover. Those who know God cannot deny that the spirit that comes with every little babe is not of this world and can only be recognized as from a realm far beyond this one. Each child, whether destined to become a Mother Teresa or a Hitler, comes with his own overwhelmingly sweet spirit that you would do well to recognize and teach him is of Heaven. The love that earthly Father and Mother feel for their child is only representative of a much greater love that came with him at his birth. Knowing this will make all the difference. Although self-esteem comes as a package deal – a child’s accomplishments, others’ recognition of his successes, and the inner peace that comes from loving and serving others - without the innate knowledge that each of us comes from Heaven and is loved by God, there will always be something lacking. The love that parents show regardless of achievements helps their child know that he is of worth no matter what else, just because he is Who He Is.
It is parents’ life long challenge to teach each child where he came from – both his earthly heritage and his spiritual one – and help him know that his value is inborn, totally apart from worldly accomplishments. So, as you rock your little one, or your big one, let him know by your words, your caresses, and your actions, that no matter what, you love him, God loves him, and he is wonderful. Whisper sweet nothings in his ear. Kiss him on the back of his neck, rub his cheek and look into his eyes that are older-than-ages. And let yourself feel. That feeling will let you know that not only is he not from around here, but you yourself came from that far off place too. You will know and he will know that. And don’t stop doing this as your child grows. Hold and hug, poke and bump and tease just a little. Smile and wink and nod. These messages you give your child to remind him that you know who he truly is (and he’d better not forget it!) are the building blocks of his self-esteem. You may not always hold him in your lap but your expressions of love will give him the message that no matter what, he IS of great and amazing worth!
#166: Rules of De-junking, be ruthless
By Dawn Van Nosdol
Ready or Not
motional rule of de-junking: You are allowed to be sentimental, but use good value judgment and remember that you have a lot of life ahead of you and you just can’t save everything – there simply isn’t enough room. Keep a journal instead and write about why the item was so important to you and when you read about it again, it will bring you the same emotional enjoyment that you had when you had it, but without taking up space. Cultural rule of de-junking: After the depression we were taught to thrifty and save everything, but we were also taught to become consumers. You can’t be both. Try to find a happy medium. Remember this old adage: Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Financial rule of de-junking: If we bought it, then we spent money on it and we don’t want to throw it away
because we are then throwing money away. Again, when at the point-of-purchase decide if you really need it, want it, or think about what it is replacing. If you are having a hard time not buying something, set the money aside for a week or two, think about it and if you still really do need it, then buy it. Usually the feeling will pass and you will end up having more money and more space – a win-win situation. Default rules of de-junking: Don’t allow things to hang around by default. These are things that we never asked for and never wanted, but they always seem to find a corner or cupboard to pile on. I’m talking about catalogs, fliers, coupons, kid meal toys, freebees and hand-me-downs that are past their prime. Get into the habit of either throwing things away as they come in (while sorting the mail), or twice a month (when you pay the bills). Easy come, easy go. Everybody helps rule of
de-junking: Do not try to do this all by yourself. Let me repeat that: DO NOT TRY TO DO THIS ALL BY YOURSELF! Yes, you can do the kitchen and the common rooms and closets by yourself, but everybody should chip in and work on their own areas – including husbands. This is a good time for children to learn how to part with items and stop being overwhelmed with stuff. If your children, or husband, want to keep things of which you can see no value in it, make them justify their reasoning for keeping it (empty SoBe bottles are not collector items). If they do want to keep old toys or tools that are precious to them, that is fine, but help them either find an appropriate place to store them, or box it up so they can take it with them when they move. ...and don’t forget to be ruthless.

History of Utah State Mental Hospital By Janina Chilton Utah State Hospital Part 3 of 3: Today
he 1950’s brought major changes to the Utah State Hospital along with new more effective medications was an influx of new funding allocated by the Legislature. The new funding was felt in every corner of the hospital. Also, Dr. Heninger, a forward looking superintendent, decentralized the hospital into small treatment units, each with their own treatment team. Many patients were released back into the community reducing the population which peaked at 1,500 in 1955 to around 800 by the 1960’s. Other innovations included patient government, a pass system that allowed patients to earn privileges including the right to carry door keys, a patient newspaper, and Family Day. Also, in the late 1960’s families and patients began to get involved in the treatment process. They began to demand better treatment outcomes and alternatives to large state hospitals. They also tackled the issues surrounding the stigma that both the patient and family endured. The Mental Health Association, National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, and a number of consumer organizations were established to lobby for

additional funding for more research, community mental health options and insurance parity. Today science is discovering that the brain like the rest of the body is subject to various illnesses. The arbitrary distinction between physical illnesses and mental illnesses is becoming unnecessary. The positive aspect of this is it allows us to apply the same advanced technology toward solving the mysteries of mental illness that we would to any other form of illness. This makes one hopeful that the solutions and “cures” for these conditions cannot evade us for long. Gone are the large custodial institutions of the past. The Utah State Hospital has moved from a custodial asylum to a hospital in the full meaning of the word. For over one hundred and twenty seven years, the Utah State Hospital has played an
integral part in the care and treatment of those in need of mental health care. Initially isolated from society, the intervening years have turned the garbage dump into a park, the swamp has been filled, and homes and a water park now surround the campus. The hospital is no longer the only mental health facility in the state; rather is serves a supporting role to Utah’s eleven community mental health centers. Today, most people needing treatment for a mental illness remain in their communities. Individuals needing more intensive treatment are referred to hospital from one of the community mental health centers. The hospital currently employs 800 staff who provides a full array of services to 354 individuals including children ages 6-18, adults 18 and older and forensic patients committed by the criminal courts.

Hackneyed, gratitude is its own reward. yes, but true nonetheless. Studies have shown that Look around and take note those who make an effort to of those around you who be grateful are happier than don’t have it. those who don’t. 2.A roof over your head. Despite all that is wrong in There are those, even in this the world, there is still a lot country, who don’t have that. to be grateful for, especially In some countries “home”, here in the USA. We have so for most of the population, is much. There are people in cobbled together from this world that could and whatever they can find, in would live off what we slums that may be demolthrow away, and be suished at any time by their premely grateful to have it. own government. Try keeping a gratitude 3.Your job. You may hate journal. Every night, before your job, but it pays the rent you go to bed, just jot down and keeps food on your two or three things you are table. Many people have lost grateful for. It will only take their jobs, or are unable to a moment, and you will be work. Where would you be surprised how much better if you had no job? you’ll feel.

So start your year off right, by remembering how much you have to be grateful for every day. Selfishly hoard all that gratitude away in your heart and mind, just to make yourself happier. And if you really want to get on the fast track to happiness, do some small act of kindness or service for someone else every day. It will brighten their day almost as much as it will brighten yours!
Elk Ridge Assisted Living . . .
n Wednesday December 26th, the community of Elk Ridge celebrated the ground breaking for Elk Ridge Assisted Living, a state of the art 16 bed assisted living facility. Assisted living provides seniors with extra help and assistance with activities of daily living to help maintain their independence in an apartment-style living unit. The general contractor and part owner of Elk Ridge Assisted Living is Lee Haskell who has deep roots in this community.
The community will be managed by Chris Hermansen, also part owner. Hermansen is a registered nurse with over 15 years in the assisted living industry. The opening date for this facility is anticipated for late fall, early winter of 2013. This new community is being built on Haskell’s property located on 218 west Olympic Lane. This building will feature spacious private rooms, a house physician with local ties, and one of the best views in all of Utah Valley.
Both Hermansen and Haskell look forward to becoming a valuable part of this community and an important resource to local seniors and their families. With an opening date less than a year away detailed information will be available in the months to come. Model rooms for tours will will be open by this summer. Individuals who are interested in any information concerning this project are encouraged to contact Chris Hermansen at 801-358-7343. Submitted by Colin Logue

Confucious and Cooking
By Christian Moody get when you combine Confucius and cooking... Merit Student You get a recipe for reaching
n my service class (ASK), we have been doing a lot of cooking lately. We have made cakes, pies, syrups, fudge, and many other delicious creations. All this cooking (and who can forget eating) pleased my sense of taste, but left my brain wondering why I ate so much, instead of thinking about quantum physics or some other intellectual dessert. So after a few days of doing this, I decided to give my brain a feast too. What we learn in our Merit Humanities class really is life changing. It not only fills my mind with knowledge and information, but it also shows me the best ways of living, so that I can adapt my life to make the most difference in the world. Each different way of life is like a different recipe and after thinking for a while I figured out exactly what you
your full potential, of course! But besides stating the obvious, the recipe is really formatted around you, where you want to go in life, what you want to do, and what your definition of your potential is. However, one thing about this recipe is that no matter the person, Confucius requires mostly the same measurements and ingredients. According to Confucian culture, if you want to live a virtuous life you need: 2 Cups of Knowledge 1 Pint of Inner Peace/ Meditation 2 Cups of Goals 1 Cup of Preparation 2 Tablespoons of Action And 2-3 Cups of Patience These tasty ingredients must be added in that order, beginning with knowledge and ending with patience, thus building up from the
root to the fruit. After all these have been added, mix thoroughly, and let the mixture rise for many years, checking your progress periodically. Next, apply some nonstick humility to the world and bake at 350 degrees in the oven of life for up to a few more years. Remove from the oven and enjoy the virtuous life that you have made for yourself! That was just one example of a recipe for becoming a truly successful person. However, there are other cookbooks full of recipes for reaching your potential that have come from different cultures. For example, the American recipe for success would be similar to the Confucian one, however there would be a lot more action, and a lot less peace. In Humanities we study different ways to reach our full potential by learning the different recipes passed down from generation to generation in the Universal Cookbook. We might find our recipes for life in the Bible, the Bhagavad Gita, or the Tao Te Ching. However, it is up to us to determine which recipe best fits what we want to strive for in life. So in a way, Humanities is a potential feast, but it is up to us to choose which recipe we enjoy the most, and then go out and learn to make it.

hen Christmas time rolls around the corner, it’s usually a time of good cheer. Usually. However, there are a few certain people who just don’t get it. One of the most famous examples is Ebenezer Scrooge from Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. Scrooge
Gas, Wood Pellet, Wood Burning Fireplaces & Freestanding Stoves. Pellet Fuel Available
is a prime example of someone who is caught up in the misery of selfishness and he has to be visited by three ghosts in order to understand the true spirit of Christmas. Oh, Christmas Eve! What a time of celebration and cheer! There are decorations and caroling everywhere! Not for Scrooge who insults his nephew and relatives, and who hates Christmas. He has a miserable life, even though he tells himself otherwise. Only by the help of otherworldly beings does he decide to change his selfish ways. One fateful night, Scrooge is visited by his partner Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future; and is shown his life and the consequences of his actions, and the future it would bring
if he stayed on the same path continued in his selfish ways. That’s when he decides to change his life forever. Scrooge awakens a changed man on Christmas Day and devotes his life to helping his nephew and his clerk’s family, and especially young Tiny Tim. Now, while A Christmas Carol is a story we usually read at Christmas time, the lessons gained from this great book are ones we would do well to remember all year long. The main lesson Scrooge learned is that joy is born of service and misery resides in selfishness. And hopefully, we don’t need a wake up call from a ghost in order to remember that selflessness and service are the keys to true happiness in life.

DURING THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 10-14, students at Westside Elementary participated in the annual food drive. To motivate students to bring food, the student council initiated the “Food Fight.” Each classroom was awarded points based on how many items of non-perishable food they brought in. Other classes in the school, however, could bring in certain food items and “bomb” another classroom which detracted points from their score. These “bombing” items consisted of tuna fish, peanut butter, and chili which the food bank specified were most needed. Because of the amount of work involved in the organization of the food drive, multiple people and organizations were involved. The 4-H clubs assisted in gathering the food items. The student council members of Westside, (Holly Carter, Aydan Marshall, Alex Ashton, Brynn Dinkel, Moroni Wright and Ramzie Farr) counted and sorted the items. In the end, a grade-level winner was crowned, and an overall school winner with the most points earned a party for their classroom. Mrs. Couch’s third-grade class won the overall contest. Over 4,500 items were brought in overall. These items will be donated to Community in Action. Submitted by Monica Bair
Pictured is Colonel Walter T. Stewart and his grandson, Garrett Dedrickson Fifth-grade students at Brockbank Elementary recently held their annual wax museum and while most students picked people like Daniel Boone, Thomas Edison, Shirley Temple, etc...(all great people), one student picked his grandpa as his famous person in American history. Garrett Dedrickson choose to spotlight his grandpa, Colonel Walter T. Stewart. Colonel Stewart is a local World War ll veteran, best known for leading the 93rd Bombardment Group on the low-level bombing mission of the oil refineries in Ploesti, Romania during Operation “Tidal Wave” on August 1, 1943. After the American commander’s plane was shot down, Stewart took the lead, piloting his plane named the “Utah Man” into the face of the German’s defences to deliver the first bombs on the target. Stewart’s plane came back with 365 holes in it, the damage the aircraft suffered was so severe that he had to reduce airspeed and nearly ran out of fuel. Of the 178 aircrafts that took off, 54 were shot down. The Ploesti raid was the most decorated mission of World War ll. Colonel Stewart retired after 36 years of service and 32 combat missions. Among his many decorations are the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star, the Distiguished Flying Cross, and the Air Medal with 4 Oak Leaf Clusters. Colonel Walter T. Stewart lives in Benjamin with his wife, Ruth, and is truly an American Hero. Submitted by Brenda Johnson
On December 18, 2012, the Springville Jr. High school Choir came to Art City Elementary School. The Choir sang Christmas songs and their traditional song “Bum-bittibum.” Mrs. Walker, the choir director, said they were not going to sing it but that the students begged; they learned the song in a week and sounded terrific! The choir did a dance called “Crazy Santa” and the all time favorite “Christmas Round” “Chop-Chop, shovel-shovel”. It was very exciting to watch the Jr. High School choir sing. The students look forward to the Choir coming every year, thank you Mrs. Walker. Submitted by Julia Murray

Springville Jr visits Art City
Written by Kai Hendry and Abby Hullinger Earlier this year, our principal, Mrs. Kimball won a state award. She was nominated by the administrators for the title of Middle-Level Principal of the Year! (“Middle-Level” meaning the Jr. High level.) She was rewarded with a Snoopy trophy and a trip to Washington D.C. with her husband. All of the award winning principals from every state were there, too.While she was in D.C., she and her husband met with Utah’s senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee to discuss education in Utah. We asked her how she felt when she won. She said, “I was surprised and humbled. There are a lot of great principals in the state. Winning this says a lot about the people I work with. You can’t do it yourself; the kids help make the school great!” Mrs. Kimball has done a wonderful job getting our new school up and running. We, as students, feel that Mrs. Kimball definitely qualifies for Principal of the Year because she genuinely cares about her students and works hard for us so we can get a better education. We are lucky to have her as our principal. We are proud of you, Mrs. Kimball!
