Ryan’s Lions: Giving a Gift of Courage During Hard Times

See Page 4

By Student Merit Academy


nybody can make a difference no matter what their age. This was proved by Ryan Allred who started a service organization at age 16. In 2008 for his eagle project, Allred started the Ryan’s Lions organization. It is a service organization that believes at some point in everyone’s life they will face a trial and will need courage. Ryan’s Lions gives a little stuffed lion away to people who need some comfort and courage. A reason for giving a lion to somebody may be because the person (or a loved one) has a medical condition, a loved one who recently passed away, or some type of trial or a difficult time in their life. Some volunteers from Ryan’s Lions came in to talk to our ASK class. The

Although Jed and Kirby sometimes don’t get along, they love each other and have good times together.” Many of the strips have been inspired by Tristan’s own dog, a Jack Russell terrier-Chihuahua mix named Skippy. Tristan’s goal with his cartooning is to make people laugh. “Everyone deserves to laugh at least once a day,” he says. He hopes readers will join his growing number of Jed & Kirby fans.





and in Hand Outdoors LLC, a Spanish Fork based nonprofit company, recently completed building a boat specifically designed to accommodate wounded warriors, disabled individuals and others that are wheelchair bound. Team leader, Captain Steve Henline explained.”Last spring Cary Robarge, Matt Barber and I were discussing doing something that would have a positive impact on our community’s veterans, especially those who had been injured in combat. Since we all have a great love for the outdoors and Cary and I have a outfitting and guided fishing business on Lake Powell we decided to form a nonprofit company that would provide guided fishing and other marine activities at no charge to those individuals as a way to say thank you to those that have paid such a great price for our country.” From that meeting, Hand in Hand Outdoors LLc was born.

Unable to purchase a boat that would specifically accommodate wheelchairs, Steve decided to build a boat. Word soon spread as to their ambitious project. Kenneth Vaughn of Chairbound Hunters, a Springville based nonprofit that provides opportunity for wheelchair bound hunters, teamed with Captain Henline and provided partial funding and advice on how the boat would best fit the needs of those in wheelchairs. Others in the community stepped forward to provide materials and special skills necessary to construct the boat, all

It was decided that the boat, named Freedoms Dream, would be slipped at Utah Lake State Park in Provo to provide access to the many individuals along

Brenda Johnson at Bronkbank Elementary provided the picture and following: Brockbank third-graders show off their family homework project. The goal for this project was to make homework a time for “homeplay”. Each student was assigned with their families to make a picture out of leaves. The students read the book, “Look What I Did With A Leaf!” by Marteza E. Sohi, at school to get ideas. First the students and their families were to discuss the changes that occur in the fall and then go on a leaf hunt to collect a variety of leaves throughout the neighborhood. Next, they were to sort the leaves by shape, size, and color. Discussing the differences between the edges of each leaf, was it smooth, toothed or lobed? After collecting and sorting the leaves they were to press them between newspaper and put something heavy on them, like a phone book or dictionary. It would take a few days for the leaves to be ready to work with. The leaves needed to be flat, stiff, and dry. Then it was time to get creative. After gluing the leaves to the poster board and letting it dry for a day the students were to bring them to school to be laminated. The students enjoyed the project and the teachers were impressed with the creativity of all the projects.

following: Mapleton Elementary School students and faculty were treated to a performance by the B.Y.U. Theater Department recently. Theater students turned Mapleton’s Auditorium into a “Theater in the Round” to present a delightful rendition of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. Second and Third Grade students attended a workshop after the performance to learn about reading with Voice. They were instructed in the use of roll play, sound orchestration, onomatopoeia ( words that represent sounds) and analysis of the play. Students sat quietly in their designated areas, enjoying the performers as they moved about the audiences. Some students were chosen to dawn costumes and become a part of the play while others became galloping horses, choir singers and creaking gates. The performance was delightful and captured the attention of everyone. Congratulations to students and thanks to the B.Y.U. Theater Department.

Sierra Bonita’s Got Talent By Janna Slye Sierra Bonita


very Monday morning Sierra Bonita students and faculty stand in honor of the National Anthem. Most often it is a recorded version played over the intercom. Recently though, the student body and staff were treated to a live performance by a very talented third grade student from Mrs. Robin Wheatley’s class. Halee Crowther delighted everyone with an amazing rendition of the country’s anthem. Principal Mike Larsen is so impressed with Halee’s talent that he encouraged Mrs. Susan Crowther to have her daughter professionally recorded singing the National Anthem.

Cherry Creek third graders spent much of the month of November learning about our bodies and how to keep them healthy. We even got to go on a field trip to Allen’s grocery store. At Allen’s we learned about the importance of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables in order to get all of the different vitamins our body needs. We also learned that fresh produce is the best way to get our fruits and vegetables, and we know how to make the best choices when drinking juice and eating canned fruits and vegetables. -Article and Photo by Erica Boyer

A Pizza Place with Staying Power Two Jack’s Pizza 171 North Main Street Springville Mon-Thurs 11 am - 10 pm Fri - Sat 11 am - 11 pm Closed Sunday By Kaye Nelson Restaurant Reviewer


ong-time Springville folks fondly remember pizza places of the past – the Rusty Nail, Grobben’s Pizza Pan, even Pizza Hut. Each had its own following of pizza lovers. Current pizza enthusiasts can savor great pizza at Two Jacks Pizza. One might not think Two Jacks is worth checking out. It is, after all, in a gas station. But don’t let that stop you from walking in the door and turning left. Two Jacks serves tantalizing, memorable pizza. Our group ordered standards like a meat lovers and a Hawaiian but also Alfredo Chicken and Barbecue Chicken pizza, plus sides like Baked Alfredo Penne and Lasagna and their incredible dessert pizza – Cinnamon Sticks. Nothing disappointed. Here’s the bottom line. A pizza doesn’t work if the dough isn’t good. Riley Nelson commented on the dough, the base for the pizza, the cheese sticks and the hot cinnamon sticks, more than once.

Delicious Two Jack’s Pizza

one cranked out assemblyline style. The meat lovers and Hawaiian pizzas were packed with fresh toppings, so much you could barely see the cheese, also plentiful. I savored every bite of the Canadian bacon, pineapple and mushrooms on my default favorite pizza. Jera preferred the Alfredo Chicken pizza. “It’s just … mmmmm … it makes me smile,” she said, wanting to eat, not talk. “It’s so creamy and tasty.” The Baked Alfredo Penne was just as flavorsome. It reminded me of a dish on a local fine dining restaurant’s menu. Jack said pizza is definitely ordered more than the sides but if you love pasta, Alfredo sauce and bacon, you should think outside the pizza box and order this dish. You won’t be sorry. And I usually shy away from ordering lasagna at restaurants because I make good lasagna but Two Jacks lasagna made me want their recipe! I already have a game plan for when I go back.

Cheese sticks are a must. I’ll need to share an order of penne or lasagna, then flip a four-sided coin for any of the aforementioned pizzas. I’ll end with cinnamon sticks again too, licking my fingers and wanting more just like this time. Two Jacks easily won over our taste buds. There really is a trick to making a great pizza – crust (if Riley the dough connoisseur liked it, you will); sauce – tangy but not overpowering; cheese – plentiful; toppings – more is always better. Two Jacks comes through on all counts. Visit The other Two Jacks are at 30 North Main, Spanish Fork and 80 West Center, Provo.

“I really like the dough,” he said at least 14 times. It’s soft and chewy but not work-your-jaw-to-death chewy and makes a nice bed for the toppings they pack on. The cheese sticks came out first. Riley likes grease. “They’re good and greasy,” but not in a bad way. Jera Parker noted they “melt in your mouth.” We all decided before we even tasted the pizza we’d be back for cheese sticks. Server McKenzie said the most ordered pizza is the combo but her favorite is the Barbecue Chicken. We tried it and loved the tangy sauce and succulent chicken. “This is a taste of Texas,” said Dave Parker, who lived many years in Texas and knows good barbecue like the back of his hand.

company cannot hope to succeed unless it has strong owners, dependable employees and loyal customers. Johnson Tire Service has just that. Because of this it has been able to thrive in Springville for over eighty years. In a world where large chain stores are taking over, Johnson Tire Service is still going strong because of the quality of service they provide. Created in 1924 by Carl Johnson, Johnson Tire Service has remained a family business and is now into its fourth generation. Riley Johnson and his cousin Jeff Jackson are the current owners and take pride in the reputation and success of their business. When I asked what qualities make Johnson Tire Service so great and successful, Riley said it was honesty, hard work and loyal customers that keep them going. One of their hard working employees is Chance Warburton. He has been with them for only

about a year and yet he has become one of their most valued employees. “He came in as green as anyone could be, and now he is one of the best employees we have,” Riley said. Chance isn’t all work however; he is known to serenade people with the “Happy Birthday” song when it’s their special day. The 21 year old has an excellent upbeat attitude, is always on time, is easy to get along with and is always happy. He helps to create a positive atmosphere at work. When asked to tell about himself Chance jokingly said he “likes long walks on the beach”. After further thought he decided a big part of who he is was that he likes do to almost anything that has to do with the

outdoors. If he ever had a day off he would like to go to the Idaho dunes with four wheelers. Chance was born and raised in Pleasant Grove and was introduced to Johnson Tire Service by his older brother who is also an employee here in Springville. He was told about an opening and decided to apply, and has happily been working with them ever since. As he coming to the end of his first year with them, an impressive note on his character is that Chance has not once called in sick. He always puts forth his best effort and it’s because of people like him that Johnson Tire Service is where it is at today.

re you looking for a meaningful, cost effective and quick Christmas gift idea for your family? Heritage coloring books could be just the gift you are looking for!

Some ideas that have worked well include: 1)Pick one ancestral person or family and create a coloring book around their adventures. 2)Select one big adventure to illustrate such as when the family immigrated to America, or joined the church or grandpa’s adventures in the Army. 3)Pick a political or historical event and write about how it affected your family. Many people immigrated to America because of political unrest in their former country. 4)Tell the story of how couples in your family met and married. Kids also love to hear about how Mom and Dad,

Ready or Not #190: Gifting Preparedness By Dawn Van Nosdol

Ready or Not

This is the season to be jolly – and prepared. The jolly part can be hard especially if you are lacking funds and have special people that you want to show your love to by giving gifts, but the prepared part can be a bit easier. I can’t solve all your problems, but I can share with you what we did as a

family when I was young and my parents were financially challenged. One year we made all of our gifts for each other and it was my favorite Christmas ever! My mother had some material on hand and we used it to make gun socks and denim purses and a variety of other useful fun things. Christmas doesn’t always have to be digital or electronic or make lots of noise and be expensive. Let’s take Christmas

back from the advertisers and retailers. Christmas represents an attitude of love and giving from the heart and if you approach the holiday with that attitude it will open the season up to a whole different level.

“Students at Brookside Elementary have had a fantastic start to their school year! They’ve participated in a variety of activities – including their annual carnival, participating in Red Ribbon Week, and parading on the playground in their Halloween costumes. The 5th and 6th graders also were able to continue the tradition of dancing to “Thriller” at the end of the Halloween parade. They did a fantastic job! A big shout out to the teachers who take their time to teach them “the moves”! Also a big THANK YOU to the local businesses who generously make donations to help support Brookside’s activities – especially Harward Farms, for pumpkins, and Two Jack’s Pizza! We really appreciate you!” - A message from the Brookside PTA via Janet Merrell

ervice is the key to enriching lives—both the one offering and the one receiving the service are blessed as a result of it. At Landmark High School, the Nebo School District’s alternative high school, students are given the opportunity to perform meaningful service throughout the school year. It is an integral part of the culture we are trying to build and the experience we provide. Service opportunities are organized with the help of teacher advisers and student senators. The Student Senate at Landmark is a group of students selected by their peers for having a positive influence around the school. Each senate works with their adviser to facilitate a service project in each advisory class. Projects include: blood drives hosted at Landmark throughout the year, canned food drives, clothing drives, visiting local senior citizen centers, recycling, visiting the Christmas Box House, sub for Santa etc. Students organize and carry out the projects. Recently, students had the

opportunity to visit a local retirement home with several flower pots of mums. The flowers were grown in the Landmark greenhouse under the direction of greenhouse manager, Mark Van Wagoner. Many are sold throughout the community. On this particular day, however, the flowers were presented as gifts to the many residents at the home. Mark had this to say about the project, “As part of our service field trip we took several flats of 'garden mums' that the students grew in the greenhouse and handed one to every resident at Orchard Park. A total of 51 plants were handed out. There was a huge response from everyone, even the staff. The residents were so grateful that a bunch of high school kids would take the time out of their learning time to come and 'brighten their day'. I don't think there is any better way to help these kids learn about loving and caring for people then by sharing something you've put time and effort in growing and caring for, as the mums they handed out.”

A Christmas Present for our Sister Karen Davis: The Puppeteer Who School in Kenya, Africa Brings Holiday Cheer By Josh Davis Merit Student

By Sequoia Knippenberg Merit Student


n Kenya, Africa Merit Academy has a sister school--Mtulu. Merit Academy has raised money for Mtulu so they could have textbooks and classrooms for attending school. Over the past few years, we have raised money to build a bathroom and started constructing a school building. As a school, we have hosted a “Run for the Bathroom” marathon and raised money through bake sales as well as donated books to help the children in Mtulu. Children in Mtulu travel as much as 10 miles on foot to get to school. They start walking around 4 AM so they can be at school on time. Since it’s such a long trip, some children sleep at the school during the week because of the distance. Food is scarce for these children and some attend Mtulu in order to receive a meal. Our school had the opportunity to have a representative from Kenya

hen Celeste Albright first began making hats for premature infants with her church group, she never imagined that one day she would end up receiving one of those hats. In December 2011, she was sixteen weeks pregnant when she went to the doctors for a routine checkup, but this doctor’s visit was far from routine, instead there was difficulty finding the baby’s heartbeat. When the ultrasound confirmed Celeste’s worst fears, reality set in. The baby boy was delivered at 16 weeks with the cord wrapped around its little neck and no heartbeat. It was a depressing time for the Albright family, but the outpouring of love in response to their loss was heart warming. The sweet ladies from Celeste’s church group found out about Celeste’s loss and brought two little crocheted hats to the hospital. Celeste’s nurses made her a

t. Loafer Elementary students got a real treat attending the Fifth Grade Wax Museum! The fifth grade students researched famous people who have made a difference in history. They wrote reports about the person they chose, collected artifacts that represented what that person stood for, and came dressed as that person. The students and teachers went to a lot of work for this activity and we learned many fun facts about some pretty famous people!

Carter ’s Christmas gift of Love

Photo: Staff Photo Clockwise, Christmas Geese, Santa in window, Large Snowman. For 17 years Carter’s have enjoyed providing Christmas Cheer for all of us.


n Thursday, December 6, 2012 I went with a friend, Stephanie, to the Copies Plus Printing (Great Services for all your copying needs) Christmas party up at Timberwolf Grill (Loved the buffet dinner, the food was excellent). On the way up, we passed the house of Pete and Audrey Carter and saw it decorated to the hilt with Christmas lights, figures, trees, candy canes, and more. I had never seen the decorations on this house before and come a few days later on Saturday, I had to drive back up and knock on the door. Pete and Audrey are a friendly couple, full of love, and they shared their story with me. About 17 years ago (1995) Audrey convinced Pete to stop at a yard sale where they brought home a life-size Santa sleigh with reindeers. It was in horrible condition with legs broken and antlers missing. Pete went to work and with the assistance of a neighbor they fixed the legs and recast some antlers. This simple act started a journey of giving to the community that would help bring smiles to thousands of residents, for years to come. Each year, two weeks before Thanksgiving the

Carter family and friends get to work pulling out boxes of lights, ornaments, PVC pipes, lights, cords, and decorations to put together their award winning Christmas decorations. When I asked them why they do it, Audrey replied, “It is a gift that we give to Mapleton and Springville at Christmas time.” It truly is a gift and an easy to access location. Take the family for an evening drive. Be sure to stop and pull over so you can take in all the details. The train engine and front half of the track were a gift from a local resident. Pete created the first car and added the back half of the track. Someday, possibly, a caboose may be added. It is beautiful woodwork, a hobby Pete enjoys. I was shown a beautiful jewelry box he had made for a grand-daughter and a couple of other beautiful treasures he has made out of wood. Pete has made most of the decorations. The 14 foot Christmas tree is a frame of PVC pipe and assembled in two large sections. The large snowman was made by heating PVC pipe, bending it into circles, covering it with chicken wire, paper mâché and then transporting it to a

shop in Provo to have it covered in fiber glass. The employees of a Provo fiber glass shop had never done such a unique project and had to get a picture with the snowman. Each of the 28 candy canes are hand crafted with strands of 35 lights, each light individually checked and secured by Pete before being carefully placed as orchestrated by Audrey. They have appreciated all the kind notes, plates of treats, and small donations to help cover the cost of electricity. In 2011 “Carters Christmas Tree Lane” at 1755 Canyon Road took first place in the Springville Recreation Department Outdoor Lighting Contest. About five years ago they won 3rd place in a city-wide contest sponsored by The Springville Herald. Serve Daily would like to thank The Carter’s and all others that share their talents, hobbies, and passions with the community during the Christmas Season, and for that matter at any time. It truly is a blessing and a welcomed gift. Search “Carter’s” to find more pictures on
