Public Review Period Begins for Glen Canyon Off-road Vehicle Management Plan PAGE, AZ – The Off-road Vehicle Management Plan/ Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Plan/DEIS) for Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (Glen Canyon) is available for public review and comment. The Plan/DEIS analyzes a range of alternatives and actions for managing off-road use of motor vehicles and on-road use of off-highway vehicles (OHVs) and street-legal all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). The Plan/DEIS assesses the environmental impacts that could result from continuing current management (the no-action alternative) or implementing any of the four action alternatives. The Plan/ DEIS is being made available for public review and comment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). Superintendent Todd Brindle is pleased that the process to draft the Plan/DEIS has been an inclusive effort. “In addition to input from neighboring UT counties and the Bureau of Land Management, comments were gathered from the general public at numerous venues with regards to issues and concerns as well as preliminary plan alternatives,” stated Brindle. “I hope that all those who are interested in the management of motorized vehicles at Glen Canyon will review this draft and provide comments.” An electronic copy may be downloaded at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/glca-orvplan. Comments should be submitted online using the Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) system. Written comments may also be submitted to: Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, ORV Plan/ DEIS, PO Box 1507, Page, AZ 86040-1507 or delivered to Glen Canyon headquarters at 691 Scenic View Drive, Page, AZ. Comments must be
received or postmarked no later than March 4, 2014. Printed copies of the Plan/DEIS will be available at some local libraries (Page, Blanding, Escalante and Kanab). Additional assistance in obtaining a copy of the Plan/ DEIS can be requested by contacting Glen Canyon at (928) 608-6209. Five alternatives are analyzed. Alternative A, the “noaction” alternative, represents the continuation of existing management policies and action related to the use of ORVs in Glen Canyon and represents “no change” from the current level of management direction and level of management intensity. Alternative B, the environmentally preferred alternative, does not designate any ORV routes or areas and would allow motorized vehicle use only on existing park roads. Alternative C would expand recreational opportunities by increasing the number of ORV routes and areas as well as the types of vehicles that would be allowed on park roads. Alternative D would limit the number of ORV routes and areas and prohibit the operation of OHVs and ATVs throughout Glen Canyon. Alternative E, the NPS preferred alternative, designates a mixture of opportunities for motorized recreation on park roads and designated ORV routes and at remote shoreline areas while prohibiting such uses in areas where resources and values may be at risk. All action alternatives include provisions to improve signs and road/route markings, develop a communication strategy to better educate visitors on regulations and resource concerns, and to close and restore routes and areas not designated for off-road use.

“Hour of Code” Inspires Local Students to Further Computer Programming Skills
Panguitch High School
The group of Panguitch Middle and High School students shown above were certified in Hour of Code. (Not all students who participated are pictured.) The Sterling Scholars of Panguitch high are on the front row: Natalie Birch, Macey Stephenson, Kyler Norris, McKayla Heaton, Max Smith, Kennedy Barney, Rowdy Miller, Kambree Josie, and Kenzey Veater each had a story to tell about their experience learning to code. PANGUITCH - If you can read, you can write code. That’s the message that organizers of Hour of Code wanted to convey to thousands of middle and high school students during a nationwide coding tutorial event last month. On December 9, 2013, Code.org kicked off a new campaign called the Hour of Code, which asked teachers across the U.S. to help introduce their students to the basics of computer science through the organization’s coding programs and tutorials. Nearly all the students in Panguitch High and Middle school participated in an Hour of Code. We wrote over 32,000 of lines of Code. From the start, Hour of Code had boosts from friends in high places. It was on the front page of both Google.com and Apple.com, and U.S. President Barack Obama even made a promotional video. But the leading referrers to Code.org were individual teachers and schools who
used the programs in their classrooms, according to Hadi Partovi, who co-founded the organization with his brother Ali Partovi. The two are repeat tech entrepreneurs and angel investors and have raised tens of millions of dollars to help increase the dismayingly low percentage of computer science classes in U.S. schools. In Code.org’s estimation, Hour of Code reached twice as many U.S. students as have ever taken a computer science class, and five times as many U.S. females as have taken a computer science class. Ever. This is important, as it is estimated the future will offer far more job opportunities available in software development and other computer sciences than there are trained programmers to fill these jobs. Efforts like Hour of Code are intended to help fill that gap. Of course, it’s only an hour of code, so you don’t want to put too much weight on the extrapolation. But that’s the point: if more students get a taste of learning to code, more
are likely to stick around. Students participating in Hour of Code were 73 percent from the U.S., and 51 percent were female. Hour of Code was offered through the Exploring Computer Science classes at Panguitch High School. This event has inspired many student who are now looking into programming classes taught at the school. Many students

alternatives that would provide for off-road use, management and mitigation strategies are outlined to address the impacts from off-road use. This would include implementation of a permit system to provide for education on applicable regulations, provide for visitor safety, prevent resource damage and recover costs for monitoring, mitigation, education and administration of the permit system. All comments on the Plan/ DEIS are welcome, particularly those that assess the adequacy of the document in disclosing and evaluating the effects on the environment. These comments are most useful if they are as specific as possible and do the following: • Discuss a particular plan element or alternative • Identify incomplete or incorrect information • Offer reasons why a particular alternative or plan element would or would not work • Offer a reasonable, new plan element or completely new alternative that could help accomplish the stated goals • Point out discrepancies between legal mandates and proposals • Highlight deficiencies in the analysis of environmental consequences • Provide information on how you use the park and how particular proposals in the planning document would affect that use.
The NPS will consider input received during the public review and comment period for the Plan/DEIS to prepare the Final Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan and EIS (Plan/FEIS). We anticipate the Plan/FEIS will be prepared and made available for public review in late 2014. Pursuant to NPS policy and regulations, the alternative that is selected will then be adopted as a special regulation governing off-road use of motor vehicles and on-road use of OHVs and ATVs at Glen Canyon. To stay informed about the upcoming regulation process, visit http:// parkplanning.nps.gov/glcaorvplan. Information on how to comment on the proposed regulation will be posted on this website once the proposed regulation becomes available for review and comment. Glen Canyon will hold an Open House to provide an opportunity for the public to find out more about the Plan/ DEIS and the alternatives on Tuesday, February 12, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Headquarters, located at 691 Scenic View Drive in Page, AZ. NPS staff will make a short presentation at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. You may provide written comments in person at the Open House. Additional open houses are planned in Blanding, Escalante, Kanab and Salt Lake City, UT.

GSENM Hosting BLM’s “Landscape Approach for Managing Public Lands” Presentations Jan. 22 & 23 KANAB - Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM) invites the public to attend either of two presentations on the Bureau of Land Management’s “Landscape Approach for Managing the Public Lands and the Colorado Plateau Rapid Ecoregional Assessment” January 22 and 23, 2014. The programs will be held Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Kanab Visitor Center, 745 E. Highway 89, Kanab, Utah; and Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Escalante Interagency Visitor Center, 755 W. Main Street, Escalante, Utah. Presentations will be given by national and Utah state office BLM staff. The Landscape Approach for Managing the Public Lands looks across large, connected geographic areas to more fully recognize natural resource conditions and trends, natural and human influences, and opportunities for resource conservation, restoration, and development. It seeks to identify important ecological values and patterns of environmental change that may not be evident when managing smaller, local land areas. BLM is using this broader understanding of the environment to inform, focus, and integrate national and local resource management efforts. The Landscape Approach provides a framework for integrating science with management; for coordinating management efforts and directing resources where they are most needed; and for adapting management
strategies and actions to changing conditions and new information. It also provides an important foundation for developing coordinated management strategies with partner agencies, stakeholders, and American Indian Tribes. Rapid Ecoregional Assessments (REAs) are part of the Landscape Approach. The Colorado Plateau REA, which includes GSENM, was completed in May 2012. REAs synthesize the best available information about resource conditions and trends within an ecoregion. They highlight and map areas of high ecological value, including important wildlife habitats and corridors, and gauge potential risks to them from climate change, wildfires, invasive species, energy development, and urban growth. REAs also establish landscape-scale baseline ecological data to gauge the effect and effectiveness of future management actions. The website for information on the Landscape Approach or REAs is: http:// www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/ more/Landscape_Approach. html. There you will find general information about the Landscape Approach, general information about the REAs, and specific information about the Colorado Plateau REA and others.

School Notes Panguitch High School School Student Earns $100 Through the “Zions Pays for A’s” Program
PHSbyNotebook D C onnie
Back Full Time; Bantam Wrestling at PHS After having a short week to shake the Christmas cobwebs out and get back into the swing of things, the students and teachers of PHS returned to a full week of school in status-quo fashion. While the break was certainly nice, enthusiasm for going back to work and continuing the process of education was on display this week (Probably). Along with being the first full week after the break, this week is also the last fully-scheduled 5 day period before the quarter ends next tuesday. Sports resumed with a vengeance this week- beginning with our basketball boys. In an exciting and competitive away game, they pulled out a great victory against the Diamond Ranch Diamond BacksGood job boys! The boys also put on a stellar performance in another crowd-pleasing home game. This time they faced off against the Escalante Moquis. The wrestlers also had a busy week- starting with Wednesday. Along with sending half of their team up to Milford for a shortened yet still
competitive duel, the remaining members of PHS wrestling stayed at home to help out with the Bantam tournament. As someone who has been with the sport for quite a few years, this historian can say that is an enriching experience to come full circle and help the bantam wrestlers you once competed with. The boys would not end their week there, though, as they laced up their shoes on Thursday to head up to Gunnison. The duel against the 2A Bulldogs was certainly one to see. Not to be outdone by the boys, the girls basketball team also put together a complete week of exciting action. They began their sporting week with a great game on the home turf of the Piute Thunderbirds. The girls would need to inspect their surroundings carefully and get used to the piute court- as they would spend the weekend there for the sophomore tournament. Good job and good luck! Donnie Corwin is a senior at Panguitch High School and serves as high school historian.
PANGUITCH - It’s not easy to motivate teen students. Parents and teachers need all the help they can get, and this school year marks a decade since Zions Bank began doing its part. Since 2003, the bank’s Pays for A’s program has paid hardworking Utah and Idaho students for more than half a million report card A’s. Adding to the count is Panguitch High School junior Katlynd Draper, who won a $100 scholarship savings account in the program’s fall drawing. Scott Campbell, manager of the Panguitch financial center, surprised Draper with her winnings during an inschool presentation last month. Educational motivators are crucial. Nearly half of all high school students are chronically disengaged at school, according to findings released last year by the George Washington University Center on Education Policy. “Money is a powerful incentive,” said Campbell. “This program is a free tool parents and teachers can use to point their student toward the goal of straight A’s on a report card. We even see some parents match the money from Zions Bank.” Campbell gives the following tips for making the most of the Pays for A’s program: • Celebrate! Parents
should bring students with them to a Zions Bank financial center so the student can be publicly praised. Make it an outing with a special treat such as ice cream afterward. • Get the word out. Educators can let students and parents know about the program during the school year, and track the dollar amount their students could earn for report card A’s. • Take the long view. Help your student understand how interest works over time as their money grows in a Pays for A’s savings account. The Pays for A’s program is open to all Utah and Idaho students ages 13 to 18. To participate, students bring their most current term-end report card into any Zions Bank location. They’ll receive $1 per “A” deposited into their savings accounts, or .50 cents per “A” if they opt for cash. For each “A” on their report cards, students are entered to win one of 150 regional scholarship prizes worth $100 and one grand prize worth $1,000 in each state. Teens need not be customers of Zions to participate. Contest entry deadlines and full contest details are available online at www.zionsbank.com/ pays4as. —Zions Bank

School Notes Reading by 3rd Grade In the next few weeks, Parents who have students in the Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd or 3rd grades will be receiving a DIBELS reading report showing where their students are reading in relationship to grade levels and other students in the same class. I would like to emphasize how critical it is to have students reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade. Research published in Education Week by Robert Balfanz at John Hopkins University found the following statistics based on his research. He found warning signs as early as the 6th grade if a student showed chronic absences, poor behavior, failing math or language arts scores which, when put together, lead to 90% risk that a student will not graduate on time. The American Educational Research Association indicates that warning signs are prevalent in students as early as the 3rd grade. Their research indicates a student who can’t read on grade level by 3rd grade is four times less likely to graduate by the age of 19 than a child who does read proficiently by that time. If you add poverty into the equation this same student is 13 time less likely to graduate on time. Students who are not on grade level at the start of their
4th grade class have only a 1 in 10 chance of being on grade level at the start of their 8th grade year. It is important to understand that students learn how to read through 3rd grade. After 3rd grade, students use their reading skills to learn content so, if a student cannot read the material because of a lack of reading skills, they cannot understand the grade level content they are being taught. So, when you receive the letters from schools describing your student’s reading levels, please take some time to review the information and contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions. Parents play a critical role in helping students to improve their reading at home. I would like to pass along a few helpful suggestions for parents. First, make sure your student is reading books that are on their current reading level. These books should be easy for the student to read and should help build fluency. If a student is missing more than five words per page, the book may be too hard. Parents can ask their student’s teachers for their current reading level but make sure students do not experience frustration when they are reading because the book may be too difficult. Second, students who are in Kindergarten through 3rd
grade should read out loud to parents or some other adult. Parents should listen to students and ask questions such as main character, places or ideas expressed in the stories. By asking questions during the story or at the end it will help students build their reading comprehension. Third, visit your local libraries [or bookmobile!] to check out books that are on their grade level to provide additional reading opportunities to the students. Students should read at least 20 minutes every day to help improve their reading fluency. Fourth, as students’ progress in their reading and start into chapter books, it is a good idea to look for audio books that students can listen to so they can understand the characters, settings and plots in the stories. Many times after a student understands the roll of each character, they are more likely to continue reading the book, especially if the books are part of a series. I would ask for everyone in our communities to please help students to be proficient in their reading by the end of 3rd grade. Proficiency in reading by the end of the 3rd grade may be the biggest determining factor in a student’s future. —Superintendent Ben Dalton

First Graders Explain How to Build a Snowman man
First graders explain how to build a snow-
Do you need to learn how to build a snowman? Asked one of Mrs. Wendy Potter’s first graders. Mrs. Potter’s class teamed up with Mrs. Stacie Ekker’s fourth grade class, and wrote instructions about “How to Build a Snowman”. Mrs. Potter shared a few examples: Britain H and Victorya “First, get a pile of snow. Next, Make 3 little balls then roll them tell Large, Medium and small. Then, stack from large on the bottom, medium in the middle and small on the top. Last, put a hat, a carrot nose and a coal mouth and eyes. Make another one.” Clancey and Kamryn “First, you roll a big ball for the bottom. Then roll a ball smaller then the big one. Next, make a head. Stack them on top of each other. Then, get two sticks for arms. Get two pieces of coal for eyes. Last, put a carrot for the nose. Then make a mouth out of rocks.” Mrs. Potter’s class is also getting ready for the hundredth day of school. “We will reach the 100th day later this month. We will celebrate it by counting 100’s of things, eating 100’s of things and writing 100’s of things about it. It will be spectacular.” On Friday, January 10 the school year was officially half over. “Our reading and writing skills are improving and our math skills are stellar!” said Mrs. Potter.
Highlight on Hanksville Elementary by Jasmine Wilson We want to congratulate December’s Students of The Month and welcome everyone back from Christmas break. Our students were from left to right: Jadyn Blackburn daughter of Troy and Deborah Blackburn in Mrs. R’s class, Natalie Wells, daughter of Dan and Betsy Wells in Mrs. Wilkins class, and Dalvina Wagner, daughter of Nicole Whitehair in Mrs. Wells class. Mrs. Wells wanted to let us know how excited her class is for the new year, and that they will be focusing on Social Skills. Mrs. R’s class is focusing on their study of Rocks and Minerals. Mrs. Wilkins class will be learning about The Moon! We hope you all had a wonderful time off and are ready to start learning again. Just for a reminder to parents and students there will be no school on January, 20th, so keep that in mind.
Panguitch’s Chance Campbell Lands the 1A MVP Baseball Award Chance Campbell ended the year with a pitching record of 13-0, to go along with his .418 batting average, eight home runs and 42 RBIs to earn the Deseret News MVP award. Chance had 20 scoreless innings in his last three games. He pitched a 3-0 victory over Tabiona in the semis and turned around the next day and pitched a 2-0 win over Piute in the State finals. He only allowed 3 hits by Piute in the final game. The 20 scoreless innings, by Chance went along with the 25 innings he pitched earlier in the season. The Bob Cats finished undefeated for the season, making it the second season in a row without a loss. Over a three year period they had a 51 game winning streak and in those three years the Cats only had one loss and they won their third Championship in a row. Others on the ALL-State team from Panguitch: Catcher Dason Houston, Infielders Tyce and Trey Barney (Trey was the only freshman on the Team). Second team, infielder, Troy Bagy, and Keldon Norris outfielder. Congratulation to the Piute players, Kaden Blood, Zack Allen, Jayden Coburn, Dalton and Logan Steed. Wayne: Bryan Batty, Brigg Blackburn, and Braden Brian. All were selected to the All State Team. Many thanks to Coach Clint Barney, it was his determination over three months that final got the Deserert News to get off their duff and put out an All State Team. In the small Counties, Garfield, Kane, Piute and Wayne, do not receive any daily papers and the major papers don’t seem to care much about the 1-A schools. The SLC Tribune. didn’t even have an All-Star team. The Bob Cats traveled down to Diamond Ranch on Wednesday and finally met up with some competition. The
Cats did prevail with a 63 to 58 victory however. Tyce Barney had another good game with 30 points, Chance chipped in 20 and Trey Barney had 11. On Friday night against the out manned Escalante Moquie team, the Cats dominated 86-29 and again Tyce had another good evening with 29 points and Keldon Norris had 12. Because of the score all of the players got in the game and got into the scoring column. The Bob Cats are currently ranked 3rd behind Rich and Piute, the Cats play the Thunderbirds there, on the 24th. Both the Cat and the Lady Cats have a bunch of away games coming up. The Cats next game is down at Valley on Thursday the 16th and then there is the Sophomore Tournament at Wayne on Jan. 17,18th. In the much heralded game last Thursday against Piute, it lived up to all of the hype, with two of the top teams in the State going at it. The Lady Cats out scored the Thunderbirds in each quarter and ended up on the good side of a 63 to 48 score. This was the closest score of any game the Cats has played so far this season. I expect the two teams will meet up again several time this year, with the Birds coming here on Feb. 4th and then again at Region and maybe again at State, if all goes well. Dari Frandsen had another big game with 25 points, Whittni Orton finished up with some spectacular shots and 16 points, Chesney Campbell beside some great defensive plays ended up with 13 points. For the Birds; Kerra Gleave had 18 points and in the Gleave’s tradition she is really a strong player. There was a really big crowd for this game, and Piute again has a fun student band. Like the boys the Lady Cats have a lot of away games, last nights game against Valley and Fridays game against Milford will be the last home
games till February 4th against Piute and the last home game. The Girls have away games against Wayne, Escalante and Bryce Valley. The Lady Cats have moved into first place in the 1-A division, the first 4 places are with Region 20 teams, Piute, Wayne and Milford, in that order. It’s hard to believe that the basketball season is all most over, its been a real fun year, with both teams having outstanding year. With wrestlers it has been an up and down season, but with all of the bouts they are having they are gaining a lot of great experiences that is hard to come by in the 1-A bracket. Milford only has 6 wrestlers and Coach Houston’s team won easily only taking out 6 men. Against 2 A Gunnison they kept it close, going down to the last match before losing. The Cats have a bunch of matches here, Jan. 16th Parowan, Jan 23rd Wayne (homecoming) and on the 29th Beaver will finish the Home matches. Rowdy Josie was invited up to the State All Star wrestling tournament and lost in the third overtime match. The 1A team that was at the Tournament placed third, surprising everyone. There are 5 really good 1A teams going to State including PHS.

Wayne Sports This Week by Maggie Ellett and Bethany Lamb
Boys & Girls BB &Wrestling... The boys teams have been performing well this week. The boys’ basketball lost to Milford in a close game of 48-51, and then in their game against Piute they put up a good fight, and won 53-51. Their record this season so far is as follows: Varsity 2-4 , JV 1-4, and Freshman 2-3. Not bad for the first of the season. And things are looking up.

Bluffdale - Our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend and coach, Sherral Jay Allred, age 68, passed away peacefully at his home in Bluffdale, January 6, 2014, surrounded by love. He lived a courageous life, which saw him through the relentless progression of metastatic prostate cancer. Throughout his cancer journey, he remained a steadfast pillar of strength and courage to all those around him. He quietly taught us about love and acceptance. Sherral was born January 25, 1945 in Salina, Utah, a son of Jewel Reed and Vera Elsina Foote Allred. He grew up in Torrey and graduated from Wayne High School, Class of 1963. He then attended Salt Lake Vocational College and the University of Utah. Sherral married the love of his life, Myrle Taylor, September 2, 1967 in the Manti LDS Temple. He was an active member of the LDS Church, serving in a Bishopric, as a Stake Mission President, Young Men’s Leader, Scout Leader, High Priest Leadership and Sunday School Teacher. Sherral also served in the US Army Reserves. He served as Water Master and Water Board of Directors member for many years in both Granger and Torrey. For the last 14 years, Sherral has owned and operated his own landscaping company, Landscaping By Design. His greatest work and joy was working with young men and seeing them reach their potential. He spent many hours at basketball, baseball, soccer and football games, wrestling tournaments and watching his grandkids play. He loved the outdoors and spent time golfing, 4-wheeling, snow mobiling and riding horses. He owned race horses and raced for many years in Idaho, Wyoming and Utah. He also owned and raced chariot horses. He loved farming and raising his own hay to feed the horses. His most favorite place on earth was Torrey, Utah in Wayne County, where he farmed and enjoyed the beauty of outdoors there, 4-wheeling,hiking, hunting and fishing. Sherral is survived by his loving wife, Myrle T. Allred of Bluffdale; children: Kelly and Amy Allred of South Jordan; AnnaMarie and Jim Bingham of Herriman; Michael and Stephanie Allred of Bluffdale; 10 grandchildren: Taylor, Gracie, Elizabeth and Jonah Allred; Tanner, Carter and Ashley Bingham; Kaden, Cohen and Mason Allred; a half-sister: Darlene and Lamar Hutchinson of Elsinore; sisters and brothers-in-law: Kathy S.

He was preceded in death by his father, Jewel Reed Allred; his mother, Vera E. Foote Mulford; a brother, Cloyd R. Allred; his grandparents and many step-brothers and step-sisters. The family would like to express gratitude for the outpouring of love and support we have received. We express thanks to the Huntsman Cancer Staff and Dr. Agarwal, for their compassion and care of Dad. And a special thanks to our “Angels” Katie, Terica and Melanie at “A Step Forward” Hospice. We couldn’t have done it without you. Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. in the Bluffdale LDS West Building, 14650 South 3200 West in Bluffdale, where friends may call for viewing Friday evening from 6 to 9 P.M. or Saturday morning from 9:00 to 10:30 prior to the services.

by Mack Oetting ~ mackoetting @gmail.com The cold weather has not let up, but it has spread across the Nation. With cold temperatures hitting record lows on the East coast. Like Utah these temperatures haven’t been seen in many a years. We didn’t get much snow at the start of the temperature dropping, but for some time now it has turned to ice and it is slick. We have had a lot of falls on this ice, including my daughter Kelly, who broke her ankle, walking our dog Tinkerbell. Please shuffle along when you get into this ice, take your time We have had way too many cases of pneumonia. There is a shot available for pneumonia and your insurance will gladly pay for it. If you think you are young and invincible and don’t need any stinking shots or insurance think again. Four days in the hospital with pneumonia can run up a bill of as high as $20,000. They use a really small needle to administer the shot, so there isn’t any excuse not to have this safeguard, for an illness that attacks regardless of your age. Utah earned cash bonus for enrolling kids in the CHIPS program. The State received $5.3 million to offset the cost of this program, with an additional 10% kids signing up. 90,000 uninsured children are eligible for Medicaid or CHIPS and Utah ranks dead last in the Country or 50th for enrollment
in these programs. Part of the affordable health insurance act is that you can now keep your kids on your insurance till they are 26, regardless of their marriage status. It was 50 years ago that the Surgeon General Luther Terry announced that smoking causes illness and death. Since that time the government has put warning labels on cigarette packs, cigarette commercials banned, and put restrictions on where one can smoke. Do you remember LSMFT, or “I would walk a mile for a Camel?” At the time of the Surgeon Generals warning 42% of the people smoked, now it’s 18%. Still, this is more than 43 million smokers, way too many heart attacks waiting to happen. Some of the facts on smoking from the Deseret News: 1965 warning labels required on cigarette packs, 1971 TV and radio commercials were banned, 1987 Aspen, Colorado becomes first U.S. City to ban smoking in restaurants, 1988 smoking banned for short airplane flights, 1998 forty six states reach a $206 billion settlement with cigarette makers, 2000 smoking banned on all international flights, 2009 food and drug administration authorized to regulate tobacco products. The Garfield Memorial Hospital Foundation experimented with a paid employee
at the Thrift Store for a year and a half. She did her job really well but it cut into the money from the sales of donations from the area. They are going back to an all volunteer group. The store will be closed from February 1st to March 1st to do some cleaning and painting of the store and inventorying of the stuff on hand. The foundation is looking for help with cleaning of the store for the month and when they reopen in March they will be looking for volunteers to help out, with 4 hours shifts once a week, of course you can help out more if you would like. The foundation raises money for badly needed equipment at the hospital, through the thrift store and their annual dinner. I will include more information as needed. Hopefully by the time of
the printing of this issue, we will have the 150 (sesquicentennial) year birthday banners up around town. This celebration will be all year long; those first pioneers were a hearty group and made it possible for us that are here, to enjoy the life in one of the best places to live in the world. Clean air, wonderful water and great neighbors and friends, what more can you ask for? Sesquicentennial pins are available for $4.00 and are at the City Hall, the County Building, Zions Bank and the Hitching Post Trailer Park. Buy a pin and show your Panguitch pride. The profits will help buy banners for the light posts. Pat Oetting also has pins for sale-676-2418 or 295 North Main Street. All is well, do not worry Mack O.

Escalante Essentials by Jean Bramble
The Escalante City Council started 2014 with a full agenda for their January 7 meeting. All members of the Council were in attendance as was Barry Huntington, Esq., the City attorney. The meeting began with a work session to discuss the City’s Nuisance and Dog ordinances. These regulations were revised to remove the misdemeanor consequence attached to violations and to increase the fines for unlicensed dogs. Dana Waggoner, representing the Garfield Travel Council, was the first to speak during the regular session of the meeting. She reported that tourism in Garfield netted 1.3 million dollars, an all time high and in spite of a two-week government shutdown. The County Commissioners, she said, recognized the value of tourism. Marketing monies are slated for each town in the county and a new marketing fund that includes on-line advertising and financial assistance for City signs, which will blend with those throughout the County. Members of the Travel Council have targeted 7 consumer shows and several trade shows. A Tourism Day Conference will be held on March 25th at Ruby’s Inn. This conference is without charge to any interested resident. Ms. Waggoner went on to describe her eagerness to see how the new tourism tax will impact Escalante. She expressed the hope that the City Council will support establishment of an advisory board representing citizens, businesses and the City. The purpose of such a board would be to make suggestions as to how the new funds might best enhance Escalante. In addition, the Chamber of Commerce will re-visit and soon submit the new Vision Plan to the City. To enthusiastic nods from other members of the audience, Kate Vining expressed appreciation to the City employees for their accomplishments in cleaning the City streets. Mayor Taylor, with the advice and consent of the City Council, appointed the following individuals to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Kevin Worlton and Tony Peterson will hold 3-year positions. Tara Woolsey will complete Jared Woolsey’s term. Kate Vining and David Torgersen will
serve as alternates. Thanks to all these individuals for their willingness to serve our town. Mayor Jerry Taylor as well as City Council representatives Melanie Torgerson and Louise Barnes were all sworn into office as unchallenged incumbents. Police Chief Justin Christensen, Vickie Schulkoski and Stephanie Steed were reappointed as Chief, City recorder and City treasurer respectively. Drew Parkin, head of the committee that has been working on expanding health care for Escalante and the communities on the East side of Garfield County, spoke to the Council and audience in order to provide information. Substantial progress has been made. Kazan Clinic will be under the administration of Wayne Community Health Clinic beginning the first of February. Hours of operation will expand as will personnel available to serve patients. A sliding fee scale will be available such that those with limited income will be able to access care locally. A new clinic building with an increased range of services is being planned. The location of the new clinic is yet-to-be-determined, however the current clinic building will likely serve as a dental clinic in the future. Because February 3rd is the deadline for a loan application requiring site, economic and design plans, Mr. Parkin asked the City Council to make a final decision in selecting a site . He provided each Council member a written list of requirements and related considerations such as economic concerns, access and safety issues, specific variables impacting proposed sites, the ability of a given site to contribute to the community and visual and marketing matters. Audience members asked questions and made comments. Choosing the best site continues to be a challenge, but one with a sense of immediacy. Hence, Mayor Taylor arranged for an executive session following the meeting to acceleate the final decision-making process. Please contact your mayor or a Council member with questions or suggestions. The Council approved a motion to allow City staff to issue business licenses for businesses in commercial areas. The mayor will then review prospective licenses and give
final approval. This process should simplify and shorten the process for our entrepreneurs. Leslie Venuti asked for clarification regarding cost, payment and long-term maintenance for bringing water lines to a to-be-developed part of town. Plans were announced for liquidation of old city equipment including a dump truck, a 20 KW generator, truck scales, a riding lawn mower and a cinder salt spreader. These items will be listed in the Garfield/ Wayne Insider. A question asked by Frank Levine regarding a new sewer connection was answered. Mr. Levine will now approach P & Z with plans to build. There were no reports from the administrative, police, public works, library or fire departments. Mayor Taylor, in his Council Report, described the committee laboring to establish the new health clinic as having worked hard. He stated that the project is going forward and that its future success depends on the entire community getting behind those who have worked to bring the new service forward. The clinic will create “several new jobs” and is “a good thing,” said the Mayor. Council Member Barnes acknowledged several big potholes in town. She explained
that the holes are not repairable when ice is present. Council Member Greg Allen stated that Armstrong Consultants, the consultants for the airport, suggest that Escalante place an advertisement in the Yellow Pages. The Council wondered about the cost and effectiveness of such a decision. Mr. Allen will check with Armstrong concerning these questions. City Council adjourned and moved on to hold an executive session to discuss the location of the new healthcare clinic. For Escalante residents this column may strike you as somehow different… and yet so strangely familiar. That’s because the earlier column, by Marlene Haws, was vacated. Mrs. Haws was remarkable in reporting for many years all the warm and loving social events in Escalante. She has well earned her retired status. Kudos to you, Marlene. With the support of Mayor Taylor and the graciousness of the publishers and editor of The Wayne and Garfield County Insider, the Escalante Newsletter has morphed into a newspaper column, Escalante Essentials. With one last nod to the Newsletter as well as to the Mayor, “Remember, we live in a wonderful place!”

Study: Little Difference in Risky Behaviors in PG-13, R Movies
SALT LAKE CITY - Many parents in Utah would never think of allowing their young teen to see an R-rated movie, but a new study shows those films have much of the same type of content as those that are rated PG-13. Amy Bleakley, a senior research scientist with the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, says the PG-13 rating, determined by the motion picture industry, doesn’t always stop the kind of material parents may think it does. “We found that there is really no difference between PG-13 and R-rated movies with regards to the extent to which this content is featured, except with tobacco and explicit sex, which is more common in Rrated movies,” she explains. Bleakley’s study on film ratings was recently featured in the journal Pediatrics. The study found that in
400 of the top movies from the past 15 years, a main character was involved in violence and also a second risky behavior such as drinking, smoking or sexual activity 80 percent of the time - whether the film was rated PG-13 or R. Bleakley says the big question in the wake of this study revolves around how children process what they see at the movies and whether they’re more likely to act out on a broad range of risky behaviors. “We know that when kids see just tobacco on screen, they’re more likely to initiate smoking,” she explains. “And when, you know, they see alcohol on screen they’re more likely to drink, and so on. “But we don’t know the effect of these clustered behaviors. So that’s our next step. We want to try and find that out.” —Troy Wilde, Utah News Connection
Farm Bill Hits Congress’ To-Do List...Again SALT LAKE CITY, Utah Both the U.S. House and Senate are back to work, and the Farm Bill tops their to-do list. The last five-year Farm Bill expired at the end of September, and although the House and Senate have passed new bills, they have yet to be reconciled. Randy Parker, CEO, Utah Farm Bureau Federation, said the delay is causing economic uncertainty for farmers, because it puts programs such as crop insurance on hold. “It’s just part of the dysfunction that’s going on in Washington, D.C., and in the United States Congress at this time,” Parker said, “and quite honestly that’s troubling to me and to our organization, as Americans.” A big point of contention is changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food
stamps. The Senate approved about $4 billion dollars in SNAP cuts, while the House wants a $39 billion cut over 10 years. There are reports that a potential compromise would trim $8 billion from SNAP within a decade. The Farm Bill delay is hurting Utah and much of the nation’s economy, Parker added. As severe weather grips the nation, he said crop insurance is top of mind. “To use an insurance program to make sure that if a worse-case scenario comes around that you’re able to at least financially keep your head above water, that’s absolutely critical,” Parker explained. The Farm Bureau is continually pressing Utah’s congressional delegation for action on the Farm Bill, he added. —Troy Wilde, Utah News Connection

The Wayne & Garfield County INSIDER
By Cynthia Kimball Todd has New York Yankees pictures on the walls of his apartment. And he loves the New York Knicks too. In fact, any team from New York that’s playing, no matter the sport, he’s either watching (at home, in bars or someone else’s home) or listening to it on his iPhone or in his car. Right now, he’s planning where he’ll watch the Super Bowl, even though it’s held on the Sabbath. It’s a given and he’s done this for years. Actually, he doesn’t see anything wrong with watching any sports, sitcoms or movies on Sunday. Yet, he wonders why he’s miserable, sad, depressed, and nothing is going right. So he prays to God, “Dear God, I want a better job, happiness, health, and wealth. Love you.” Just like that. He’s done. Barely seven seconds long. And without listening for answers. No two-way conversation. But he can say that he’s “said” his prayers (even though he really didn’t). Oh yeah, they weren’t said on his knees either. No reverence to God whatsoever. Todd also, every week, goes to casinos and gambles a little. And then he goes to strip clubs, too, but only once or twice. “It’s better than what I used to,” he says. “And besides, I don’t watch.” Yet, Todd does not give God the same time he does to his worldly endeavors. And actually, his prayers are more like a fast food order. And scripture study? Forget it. He can’t fit it in. Todd, though, believes he’s a man of God, but his God, if you look at where his heart and his time are spent, are his sports teams, casinos and strip clubs. When totaled, Todd spends at least 10-15 hours a week doing the latter and about 61 minutes to God each week (one hour for a quick church service on Sunday, where he repents for going to casinos and strip clubs, and almost one minute totaled for prayers during the week). Yet, scripture tells us, “O how afoolish, and how vain, and how evil, and devilish, and
Becoming Rock-Solid: Let Opposition Make You
how bquick to do iniquity, and how slow to do good, are the children of men; yea, how quick to hearken unto the words of the evil one, and to set their chearts upon the vain things of the world!” (Helaman 12: 4, LDS. org, 2014). Unfortunately, Todd, is, if using a line from church leader, David R. Stone, from his talk, Zion in the Midst of Babylon, “Seduced by our culture, [and] often hardly recognize[s] [his] idolatry, as [his] strings are pulled by that which is popular in the Babylonian world” (Stone, 2006, LDS.org, 2014). Todd’s so ingrained in Babylon, that he cannot see that he’s a slave to it, worships it and is in and of it. “Our culture tends to determine what foods we like, how we dress, what constitutes polite behavior, what sports we should follow, what our taste in music should be, the importance of education, and our attitudes toward honesty. It also influences men as to the importance of recreation or religion, influences women about the priority of career or childbearing, and has a powerful effect on how we approach procreation and moral issues. All too often, we
are like puppets on a string, as our culture determines what is ‘cool’” (Stone, 2006, LDS. org, 2014). Yet, hope isn’t lost for Todd. Some solutions, for overcoming Babylon, suggested by Stone (2006), are the following: “.do not.adopt the standards, the mores, and the morals of Babylon.create Zion in the midst of Babylon.have [y]our own standards for music and literature and dance and film and language.have [y]our own standards for dress and deportment, for politeness and respect.live in accordance with the Lord’s moral laws.limit how much of Babylon [you] allow into [y] our homes by the media of communication” (Stone, 2006, LDS. org, 2014). For 2014, give God the time you’d allocate to Babylon. After all, until you make changes, those fast food order prayers? May just go unanswered.

Wills, Trusts, and More What is “Step-Up in Tax Basis”? by Jeffery J. McKenna
“Cost basis” is the term used to describe the original cost of an asset. It is used to determine the taxable gain on the sale of that asset. For instance, if you purchased a parcel of vacant real estate in 1990 for $50,000, your cost basis in the property is $50,000. If you sell the unimproved parcel of land for $150,000 (its fair market value), your taxable gain would be $100,000; the sale price less the cost basis ($150,000 - $50,000 = $100,000). You would therefore be subject to capital gain tax on $100,000. In situations where property is used for business purposes, the cost basis must be reduced by the depreciation taken against the property during the period of business use. When you give an asset away during life, the recipient of the gift assumes your original cost basis. For example, if a father gave his son the real estate we discussed above, the son’s cost basis would also be $50,000. If the son likewise sold the property for $150,000, he, too, would have a taxable gain of
$100,000. However, when you leave an asset to someone upon your death, the recipient receives what is referred to as a step-up in basis. The step-up in basis is the fair market value of the asset on the date of the decedent’s death (or on the date 6 months after death if the alternative valuation date is used). Using the previous example, if the father died and left the property to his son upon his death, the son would receive a step-up in basis in the property, which would be the $150,000 fair market value. If the son subsequently sold the property he inherited from his father for its fair market value of $150,000, the son would have no taxable gain. Although it makes sense at times to give away assets during life, one must consider the possible income tax ramifications to the recipient of the gift on the subsequent sale of that asset. In many cases it is preferable to leave an asset upon your death rather than to give it away during life to take advantage of the step-up in basis rule. Many people give away
Attorney Jeff McKenna hiking with his son in Zion National Park
assets to children during their life to avoid the delays and expenses of probate upon their death. In doing so, they lose advantage of the step-up in basis rule. A better alternative may be to create and fully fund a Living Trust during the parents’ lifetime and leave the assets to children upon their death. The assets in the Living Trust would pass to the children free of probate, and they will receive a full step-up in basis. Jeffery J.

Over dinner, the mom explained the health benefits of a colorful meal to her family. “The more colors, the more variety of nutrients,” she told them. Pointing to the food, she asked, “How many different colors do you see?” “Six,” volunteered the son. “Seven if you count the burned parts.”
Dads and Babies
My two daughters were having a discussion about family resemblance. “I look like Mom,” said my nine-yearold, “but I have Dad’s eyes and Dad’s lips.” The six-year-old said, “And I look just like Dad, but I have light hair.” Then she turned to me. “Mom,” she asked, “what does Dad have to do with us being born anyway?” Her older sister jumped right in. “Don’t be silly. Dad is the one who drove Mom to the hospital.”

tHe lAuGhiNg pOiNt!! Doctor Note
An eight-month pregnant woman, planning a trip overseas, was asked to obtain a letter of fitness from her family physician. She arranged to pick it up at the doctor’s office the next day. She and her husband were both amused when they read, “This lady is pregnant and can fly!”
One boy in a fourth grade class said something inappropriate, and the teacher glanced at him. Seeing her look he muttered, “Oh, sorry,” and went back to his task. A moment later she felt a tug on her sleeve. A girl who had noticed the interaction looked puzzled and asked, “How do moms and teachers do that look?”
Before the Judge
In Fort Worth, Texas, I had to appear before a judge for driving with expired license plates. The judge listened attentively while I gave him a long, plausible explanation. Then he said with great courtesy, “My dear sir, we are not blaming you ... we’re just fining you.”
The Fishin’ Hole
My son had just turned eight and was old enough to go fishing at the local fishing hole on his own. While he loved fishing, he knew little about how the fish got from the pole to the table. One day I arrived home to find a note he’d left on the counter: “I caught three fish. Can you peel them for me?”
Daughter in College
A banker was recently arrested for embezzling $100,000 to pay for his daughter’s college education. As the policeman, who also had a daughter in college, was leading him away in handcuffs, he said to the banker, “I have just one question for you. Where were you going to get the rest of the money?”

Practical Money Matters
A Guide to Managing Someone Else’s Finances by Jason Alderman
Anyone who’s ever been asked to step in and manage their parents’ or someone else’s personal finances can tell you that it’s an awesome responsibility – and by “awesome,” I don’t mean “totally cool.” It’s more like “inspiring an overwhelming feeling of fear.” (Thank you, Dictionary.com.) In recognition that millions of Americans act as fiduciaries (i.e., manage money or property) for loved ones, often with no formal training or expertise, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has created four, easyto-understand caregiver guides called “Managing Someone Else’s Money” (at www.consumerfinance.gov.) CFPB Director Richard Cordray notes that there are 50 million older Americans – and millions of aging baby boomers are rapidly approaching retirement. Some 22 million people over 60 have already given someone power of attorney to make their financial decisions, and millions of others – including younger disabled adults – have court-appointed guardians or other fiduciaries. “In order to protect our seniors, we must educate the caregiver generation,” he explains. Sometimes that means learning more about the financial products and services available to seniors to help them make informed choices. But often, it’s the caregivers themselves who must make critical decisions – whether they’ve got power of attorney for a parent with Alzheimer’s or have been tapped to manage Social Security benefits for a disabled friend.
The CFPB guides are geared toward people in four different fiduciary capacities: • Someone has granted you “power of attorney” to make money and property decisions on his or her behalf. • “Court-appointed guardian,” where a court appoints you guardian over a person’s money and property when they can’t manage it themself. • You’re named as “trustee” under someone’s revocable living trust and have decision-making powers over the trust’s assets. • “Government fiduciary,” where you’ve been appointed by the government to manage someone’s Social Security or Veterans Administration income benefits. The CFPB cites four main responsibilities for fiduciaries: • Act in the person’s best interest. For example, a fiduciary shouldn’t loan or give the person’s money to themselves or others and should avoid other conflicts of interest. The guides provide examples of actions that may pose conflicts. • Manage money and property carefully. This includes paying bills on time, protecting unspent funds, investing carefully, and maintaining a list of all monies, properties and debts. • Keep your money and property separate. This means paying the person’s expenses from his or her own funds, and avoiding joint accounts. • Maintain good records:
Flu Deaths Confirmed in Southwest Utah ST. GEORGE – The Southwest Utah Public Health Department (SWUPHD) has confirmed that three influenza-related deaths occurred in the district during the past two weeks. All three were under the age of 65. These are the first flu deaths reported in the area for the 2013-14 flu season. By comparison, one death was reported last season (2012-13) for the five-county area served by the SWUPHD. “We have now had 46 people hospitalized from the flu this season,” reports Lisa Starr, SWUPHD Surveillance Nurse. “Their ages range from infants to the elderly, but nearly all of them tested positive for the H1N1 flu strain, which caused the 2009 pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is reporting widespread flu activity throughout the United States. Most cases are H1N1 and over 60% of hospitalizations involve people under the age of 65, a pattern similar to the 2009 pandemic. “We urge people to get vaccinated if they haven’t already,” says Starr. “This year’s vaccine includes protection against H1N1 and is still available.” — SWUPHD
Keep detailed lists of money received or spent on the person’s behalf, avoid paying in cash in order to have a record of purchases, and keep all receipts. The guides walk caregivers through their fiduciary responsibilities and provide practical money-management ideas, such as what sorts of records you should keep, how to interact with banks and other professionals on their behalf, and suggestions for avoiding conflicts with family members and friends who disagree with your actions. They also provide tips for spotting financial exploitation and avoiding scams. As Cordray notes, seniors “make attractive targets because they often have tangible household wealth – whether it is in retirement savings or home equity – but they may be isolated or lonely or otherwise susceptible to being influenced by a predator in disguise.” Bottom line: Fiduciaries must be trustworthy, honest and act in good faith. If you don’t meet these standards you could be removed from the position, sued, forced to repay ill-spent money or possibly even jailed. That’s why it’s important to make sure you’re qualified before accepting the responsibility of watching over someone’s finances. Jason Alderman directs Visa’s financial education programs.
