SITLA Land Sale Provides Relief to Airports in Garfield and Wayne SALT LAKE CITY - A sale of important Utah prairie dog habitat in Garfield County will complete the mitigation process for three rural airports in central and southern Utah including Cedar City, Parowan, and Wayne County, and greatly assist in recovery of the federally threatened Utah prairie dog. These three airports have experienced significant impacts from the presence of the Utah prairie dog, a protected species under the Endangered Species Act. Coordination between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) resulted in an agreement that allows ongoing development and maintenance of the airport properties for the next 20 years. To offset impacts to Utah prairie dogs, the FAA agreed to provide the necessary funding to acquire Utah prairie dog habitat elsewhere. A land sale of important prairie dog habitat located on Johnson’s Bench in Garfield County between the School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) will complete the mitigation requirements for these airports. The sale is supported by Garfield, Iron, and Wayne Counties and of course, the respective municipal airports. Alma Adams, Iron County Commissioner said, “The mitigation monies paid by the FAA and the local communities have now provided these airports the ability to secure their safety for the future, as well as at present. SITLA has

been a great partner in helping provide a solution to this long standing problem.” 800 acres of trust land will be sold to TNC, using funds allocated for this purpose by the FAA. SITLA will receive $800,000 for the sale. In addition, the USFWS is providing SITLA with 1,000 Utah prairie dog mitigation credits because the 800 acres is far more than what is needed to offset impacts associated with the airport mitigation. The money will be deposited into the State Permanent School Fund, the interest on which is distributed to all of the public schools in Utah every year. The mitigation credits can be used on SITLA land or they can be sold to land owners, developers, utilities, and any other group building or using prairie dog habitat. Another benefit to this sale is the potential to facilitate the recovery and delisting of the species. Since TNC will own the property, the resident prairie dogs and the habitat can now be counted towards the recovery goals. Laura Romin, Deputy Field Supervisor for USFWS Utah Field Office said, “The SITLA Johnson Bench property protects important occupied habitat for the Utah prairie dog as well as habitat connectivity for the Greater Bryce Area Utah prairie dog “meta-population” and the Paunsaugunt Recovery Unit. A great deal of effort

and coordination between our agency, FAA, SITLA, TNC, State of Utah, Utah Prairie Dog Recovery Team, and the Garfield County Commission occurred to ensure the success of this transaction. This transaction and this type of partner-

ship is truly what are needed to move the Utah prairie dog toward recovery.” The listing of the Utah prairie dog has had far reaching impacts on government as well as private landowners. The area where prairie dogs are federally protected includes hundreds of thousands of acres in Garfield, Iron, Beaver, Sevier, Piute, Kane, Wayne, and a small portion of Washington Counties. SITLA is an independent state agency that manages 3.4 million acres of Utah trust lands for the benefit of Utah’s schools and other public institutions. Money generated from the school trust lands is deposited in the state Permanent School Fund, a perpetual endowment that annually distributes income to each K-12 public school in Utah. —School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration

Hoards vs. Hordes

Letter to the Editor, [In reference to “Volunteers Flock to Christmas Bird Count,” Feb. 7, by Kathy Munthe.] Sorry but I have to give you two, writer and editor, a bad time. Forgive me if you can. Whaddaya mean “hoards” of robins? Shame on you. Even I know better than that, and I’m only a lowly engineer, and everyone knows that engineers don’t know how to spell or write. Fine article otherwise. William Wolverton, Escalante Ed. reply: Good catch, Bill. How is this as a usage clarification for our readers: A hungry horde of robins hoarded a huge pile of worms. We often place errors in the paper to make sure readers are paying attention.

County Policies Regarding Senior Center Questioned

Questions for the Garfield County Commissioners: The Garfield County Commissioners claim to be “Equal Opportunity Employers.” However, recently, published in “The Insider”, Garfield County wrote, “Garfield County reserves the right to accept or reject any or all applications.” Doesn’t this statement appear to allow for discrimination against a job applicant? It’s been noted that job openings for public positions require posting the job opening. For example, when the Panguitch Senior Center needed to hire a cook right away, they were told they couldn’t hire one without first posting the job opening. So they posted the job. However, did Garfield County Commissioner Del LeFevre secure the hiring of an employee to work for Garfield County to do two jobs in Escalante without first posting them? There were many well qualified people, but they didn’t get a chance to apply. Is this not discrimination and favoritism? If the Garfield County Commission wanted to hire a person from within the existing pool of county employees why was the position not posted for all county employees to have the opportunity to apply? The Commissioners have told us more than once that a person couldn’t hold down more than one County job. Does the person who was hired for these positions, Head Cook and Director (Manager) of the Escalante Senior Citizens Center now hold two new county jobs in addition to the one she already held? Is it even possible for one person to do simultaneously the two newer different jobs? If it is an official policy of Garfield County to not hire the same person for more than one job description or position, was this policy ignored? Why does the Senior Citizens Center coordinator for Garfield County need to have an office manager to do her work for her? The rules or policies of Garfield County should apply equally to all citizens of the county. Are the rules more lenient for the Commissioners’ friends and stiffer or different for others? If these preceding questions answer to be true, does this not smell of discrimination and deceit? Have the Garfield County Commissioners forgotten that they are public servants elected to office to help all of their constituents equally? There appear to be far fewer Senior Citizens attending events at the Community Center in Escalante. Why is that? I am not the only senior citizen with these questions. P. R. Soren, Escalante

Deep Creek Pile Prescribed Fire

ANTIMONY - The Bureau of Land Management plans to burn approximately 181 acres within the Deep Creek area, near Antimony, Utah from January 28 to February 28. This project is located in Garfield County, in the Deep Creek drainage which is approximately 4 miles southwest of Antimony. The Antimony Piles Burn Plan covers the piles of slash that has resulted from the Deep Creek mechanical project. The project was a vegetation management project; to expand watershed conditions, increase community wildfire protection, improve wildlife habitat and help restore rangelands. The primary objective for this pile burn is to reduce the existing wildland fire hazard, which resulted by removing dense, closed canopy pinyon and juniper trees, thus reducing potential negative effects from future wildland fire, while restoring fireadaptive ecosystems to federal, state, and nearby private lands.

small agricultural community, named for the Paiute Indian word for “big fish”, sits in a valley with rivers and lakes that is bordered by the Dixie National Forest. The official start line on Wednesday sits at 6,600 feet above sea level. Stage Two’s finish will be hosted by Torrey, a small community situated in the heart of red canyon country in the shadows of 11,000-foot Thousand Lake Mountain. It is just 10 miles west from the unique geologic formations at Capitol Reef National Park. Torrey Town is best recognized by the 100-year-old cottonwood trees that canopy Highway 24 in the center of town. Stage Three will bridge the central region of Utah in Richfield with Payson in the Utah Valley to the north. Richfield is the largest city in south-central Utah, nestled in the high desert of Sevier County. This mile-high city marks the midway point in mileage between Cedar City and Salt Lake City. Surrounded by the beauty of the Fishlake National Forest, Richfield is an outdoor recreation heaven. The Stage Three finish will take the Tour to the south side of Utah Lake, where Payson rests in the shadows of the Wasatch Front. The scenery in Payson has made this a popular location for the film industry, as it was the location for “Footloose” and the television series Touched by an Angel. The Tour has passed through this section of the Provo-Orem metropolitan area in previous years, but this is the first time it has hosted a stage finish. Salt Lake City will return for a sixth year as the host city for Stage Four of the Tour. This Friday contest will feature a popular multi-lap circuit that will begin and end near the state Capitol. Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker has declared 2013 as “Year of the Bike” and hosting a circuit race, similar to the challenging 80-mile route from 2011, is one of many planned events. Expanding and improving the “bikeability” of Salt Lake City is just one of the major aspects of Mayor Becker’s Livability Agenda, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort returns as the official finish host venue for Stage Five for a sixth year. Well known for its steep freeskiing terrain and abundant powder in the winter season, Snowbird is a cool air mountain

haven in the summertime. The final ascent up the narrow and steep section of Little Cottonwood Canyon has become a popular outdoor amphitheater for spectators. This signature climb for “America’s Toughest Stage Race” provides close to 3000 feet of elevation gain over 6.5 miles (9.2% average gradient). Stage Six will return to Park City on Sunday, August 11, the second consecutive year for the Stage Start and Overall Finish in this yearround resort town. Park City is home to three year-round resorts with the Wasatch Mountains rising to over 10,000 feet. A challenging stage race will be similar to 2012, with a final epic climb over Empire Pass. Expect huge crowds to pack Historic Main Street and see the champion crowned for the 2013 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah for the grand finale. “We are excited to see the continued growth of the Tour of Utah that will now expand into the southern part of the state,” said Jeff Robbins, president & CEO of the Utah Sports Commission. “The event generates significant economic impact for the state and will now be able to showcase Utah’s red rock scenery along with the beauty of the northern part of our great state.” The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah began as a three-day Thanksgiving Point Stage Race & Cycling Festival over Memorial Day weekend in 2004. The Utah Cycling Partnership, owned by the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, purchased the event in 2007 and re-launched the cycling event in 2008 as a fiveday National Racing Calendar event. In 2011, the Tour of Utah was elevated by the UCI to a 2.1-rated stage race on the UCI America Tour. The race is also sanctioned by USA Cycling, Inc. The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah continues to be free to all spectators, making professional cycling one of the most unique pro sports in the world today. More than 2,000 volunteer positions will be filled over the course of the week, and registration is available on the Tour’s web site, www.tourofutah.com. —Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah


SALT LAKE CITY The Utah Board of Regents has approved the Utah System of Higher Education’s first Homeland Security and Emergency Management associate of applied science (A.A.S.) degree at Salt Lake Community College. The degree was developed in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration, the Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake, various medical institutions and other regional agencies and employers. “We are delighted with the Board of Regents’ decision to offer the Homeland Security, Emergency Management associate of science degree. This degree will prepare graduates for positions in the collaborative world of managing the nation’s security and emergency readiness,” said Dr. Christopher Picard, SLCC Provost. “The College is pleased to be able to help train professionals who will make our society safer.” The new degree will prepare students for entry-level careers in the field of homeland security and emergency management. The College has already offered some courses that offer credit toward the degree. Students will be able to complete the program in four semesters. Resident tuition and fees are projected to be approximately $6,100 to complete the program. Salt Lake Community and Utah Valley University (UVU) have a full articulation agreement, so that students can transfer their classes and A.A.S. degree to UVU to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Emergency Services Administration. “This is a much needed program, no USHE institution currently offers a degree like it. Even though SLCC and other schools do offer crimi-

nal justice programs, none focus on the all-hazards approach to homeland security and emergency management that is recommended by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.” said Dave Attridge, Director of SLCC Institute of Public Safety. “This program is unique as Utah’s only multi-discipline, multi-agency approach to the protection of Utah’s citizens, property and critical infrastructure.” U.S. Department of Labor statistics indicate that between 2011 and 2018, the need for emergency management professionals, protective service workers and police and sheriff’s patrol officers are likely to increase by more than 33%. Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc. (EMSI) data suggest that by 2021, homeland security and emergency management positions will increase by more than 60% in Utah. For more information about the Homeland Security and Emergency Management degree visit: www.slcc.edu/ homelandsecurity or call Joe Anderson, Homeland Security Specialist at: 801-957-5202 or joseph.anderson@slcc.edu. Salt Lake Community College is an accredited, student-focused, urban college meeting the diverse needs of the Salt Lake community. Home to more than 62,000 students each year, the College is the largest supplier of workforce development programs in the State of Utah. The College is the sole provider of applied technology courses in the Salt Lake area, with 13 sites, an eCampus, and nearly 1,000 continuing education sites located throughout the Salt Lake valley. Personal attention from an excellent faculty is paramount at the College, which maintains a student-to-teacher ratio of less than 20 to 1. —Salt Lake Community College

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has designated Beaver and Iron counties in Utah as primary natural disaster areas due to damages and losses caused by the recent drought. “Our hearts go out to those Utah farmers and ranchers affected by recent natural disasters,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “President Obama and I are committed to ensuring that agriculture remains a bright spot in our nation’s economy by sustaining the successes of America’s farmers, ranchers, and rural communities through these difficult times. We’re also telling Utah producers that USDA stands with you and your communities when severe weather and natural disasters threaten to disrupt your livelihood.” Farmers and ranchers in the following counties in Utah also qualify for natural disaster assistance because their counties are contiguous. Those counties are:Garfield, Millard, Sevier, Kane,

Piute, and Washington. Farmers and ranchers in Nevada and Lincoln counties in Nevada also qualify for natural disaster assistance because their counties are contiguous. All counties listed above were designated natural disaster areas Feb. 6, 2013, making all qualified farm operators in the designated areas eligible for low interest emergency (EM) loans from USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA), provided eligibility requirements are met. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans to help cover part of their actual losses. FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability. FSA has a variety of programs, in addition to the EM loan program, to help eligible farmers recover from adversity. —USDA Farm Service Agency

Boy’s Basketball

Region 20 Tournaments ProvideFirst-Rate Action The Lady Cats came away with a third place finish at the Region 20. After winning 10 games in a row, including two over Milford, the last win against Milford was only last week, the Ladies went cold and ended up losing to the Tigers in their third match up.. In the play in game, the Milford Tigers beat Wayne to get in the final four. I believe Wayne also had beaten Milford twice. Also in the play in games, Piute beat Valley and this year’s Cinderella Team, Escalante, knocked off Bryce Valley. There was a change in the Venue at Region this year, the top four teams get to go to State and the fifth place team (Wayne) gets a play in game and they should also make it to State. Before only the top two teams went to State and the other four had play-in games. This saves a lot of running around the State for games. This year Region 20 teams were all outstanding and all of the games in league play were close, the good news is most of these teams are young and will be back next year. In one of the Thursday games against Piute, Escalante kept the game close and were trailing by only 2 with 13 seconds left, only to make an errant pass and lost, but it was oh-soclose. Friday’s games started with a very close game between the Wayne Badgers and Bryce Valley Mustangs. It

was close all the way with the Badgers coming away with the win and 5th place. In the semigame the Lady Cats played Escalante and that game was also close and tied at half time at 18, could it be another upset? The Cats got it together in the second half and pulled away with 45 to 34, for third place. The final game between Milford and Piute was something else. Like Panguitch the night before the Thunderbirds couldn’t buy a basketball and the score at the end of the 3rd quarter was only 27 to 16 in favor of the Tigers. It wasn’t a very well played game to this point so I went out to warm up the bus. A long time went by when the team finally came out. They said the T Birds came back in the fourth quarter and tied the game and went into over time, and the T Birds came away with a 9 point victory. Piute 52 to Milford’s 43 and Piute came out 1st in Region 20. Katelyn Parkin and Fresia Houston won the big prize, Academic All Region. Darri Frandsen and Taylor Bennett were elected to the All Region 20 Team. The State Tournament started yesterday with a first round game with Rich. If the Cats play their game they can beat anyone. Good luck at State, with your play this year you are already champs. The Bobcats had a showdown game with Bryce Val-

ley for first place in Region 20. The game was really well played for three quarters, when a lot of fouls came into play and this helped the Cats and their fine foul shooting. Dalon Bennett fouled out in the forth quarter with 17 points and it looked bad for the Cats. But the team stepped up and built on their lead and won the game 71 to 60. Tyce Barney came away with a 35 point night. The Cats came away really looking good; who knows— this could be the Cat’s year. There was a huge crowd for this game, with folks sitting in the upper bleachers. The Bob Cats last game of the season again was played last Tuesday against Piute. The have a game tonight the 14th , out at Mil-

Wayne Wrestlers Take Second at Region Last Saturday the 9th of February the Wayne Wrestlers traveled to Bryce Valley for their region tournament. It pleases me to announce that our team took second at region with five of the wrestlers placing first! Monticello took first at region. Here is the Region Nineteen and Twenty 2013 results: Region Champions: Tanner Jeffery- 113 Luke Wells-170 Preston Stephenson-120 Ryan Lee-152 Jared Alvey-220 Second Place: Jaden Ellett- 106 Isaac Pei-182 Hayden Wells-285 Fourth Place: Kehl Bradbury-113 Colten Roberts-138 Congrats to all the Badger Wrestlers! Their State Tournament will be held in Orem at the UVU center February 15th-16th. Take home the gold!

The girl’s basketball team also had their Region Twenty basketball tournament at Canyon View High School in Cedar City. Their game was with Bryce Valley. The Lady Badgers had lost to Bryce Valley both times earlier on in the season, so they knew the extra effort in to come out on top, and that’s just what they did. The Lady Badgers beat Bryce Valley by three points! Now they are headed into 2013 State tournament, held at the SVC center in Richfield the 13th-16th. Their first state game was against Legacy Prep at 6:00 p.m. last Tuesday the 12th, which will be posted in the next issue. The results of that game will determine the next game the Lady Badgers play. If they win they will verse St. Joseph Catholic School, ranked number one in 1A girl’s basketball. Good luck at state, girls! The boy’s basketball team had a home game on the 5th against Diamond Ranch. The team scored an impressive

ford. Next week starts Region and the Bobcats have a home game on Wednesday 21st and it probably will be against Diamond Ranch. The Tough Guy Bob Cats at Region 20 in Bryce Valley took third place. Monticello took first by a wide margin, scoring I believe 260 points; Wayne was second with 220 and the Cats at 180. The Cats qualified nine wrestlers for State at UVU. The tournament will start today the 14th. It’s hard to believe that the winter sports are almost over, it went by so fast, but it was oh-so-entertaining. Track is up next and both of the Cat’s Teams could do real well this year.

Coming up: • BBB with Valley Feb. 14th (today) • GBB State @ SVC Feb 13 - Feb. 16 • Wrestling State @ Orem (UVU) - Feb. 15 - Feb. 16 • BBB Region (home site)Feb. 21st • BBB Region TournamentFeb. 22 - Feb 23 • BBB State @ SVC Feb. 27 - Mar 2

93 points to Diamond Ranch’s 67. It was an excellent turnout for the Badgers. Ty Rees scored 26 points, Broc Taylor 20, Brigg Blackburn 19, and Marc Simmons 15. They also had a game last Tuesday in Bryce Valley and they have their very last home game here tonight with Valley. Good luck, boys! The next time the boy’s basketball team plays after today will be a home site region game on the 21st. Lauren Jackson is a senior at Wayne High School.

Panguitch’s Tyce Barney Nails Half Court Shot for $500

CEDAR CITY - Garkane Energy’s Electrifying Shot contest found another winner on Thursday night at the Girls Region 1A basketball tournament. Tyce Barney was selected to shoot a layup, free throw, 3point, and half court shot in under 30 seconds during the halftime promotion as part of Garkane Energy’s support of the region tournament.

School Notes

The Wayne Theatre Escape fr0m Planet Earth

Master Board Award Last week, Governor Gary R. Herbert recognized 11 local school board members in the State of Utah for their work in advancing their knowledge and skills as board members. In addition, the Governor recognized the collective abilities of entire school boards as they have worked toward increased levels of performance in the Master Boards Award (MBA) program. School Board members Ken Platt and Cheryl Cox of the Garfield School District recently received this prestigious award. The Master Boards Award program was conceived by leaders of the Utah School Boards Association who wanted to help local school board members understand the complexities of issues they face, including school finance, legislation, ethics, policy, and board meeting rules and conduct, among many other topics. Local board members and entire boards receive points toward annual MBA designations by continuous improvement, advocacy, community engagement, accountability, and effective governance. This past year, 2012, was the first year for the program, and has already increased participation and motivation for Utah board members who can enhance their understanding and actions to better support student achievement through effective governance in their schools. Each year under the MBA program, each local school board member and the board they represent, can reach new goals to enhance learning and skills. They do this through individual study/ readings, group seminars, online workshops, state conferences, community meetings and contacts, and ensuring proactive procedures and policies in their districts. I would like to congratulate Ken Platt and Cheryl Cox on their accomplishments. —Superintendent Ben Dalton

Bryce Valley Elementary News by Maren Stewart, Fifth Grade

First grade tracked their shadows this week. They saw that our shadows moved and changed because the sun moved. Then they learned that it was the earth that is orbiting the sun. Science is amazing. Second grade have been working really hard on our President’s reports and are excited to share them with the class. They also painted hearts and made them as Valentines. Third grade they have been learning about counties in South America. Each student is preparing a power point presentation to share with their parents and classmates. They have also been earning dog tags for our reading goals. Awesome job third graders!! Fourth grade decorated the front bulletin board of the school with good citizenship posters. They want to remind all students to be caring, respectful, honest, and responsible. The fourth graders were chosen and participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress. (NAEP) This national assessment is through the US Department of Education. Congratulation fourth graders for doing your best!! Fifth grade made in art, Valentine mobiles and have been really working hard in science and math. Sixth grade have learned that the earth is not closer to the sun in the summer and farther away in the winter. This is a myth, there are two reasons why we have the seasons. First earth revolves around the sun and second it does so in a twenty three point five degree tilt. Never changing this tilt and always pointing towards the north star. Ask us about it and see what else we know.

BVHS News Another week has gone by and the end of basketball season is in sight. Which means the year sure has gone by fast. Of course, that’s what they all say about your senior year. The girls played region this past weekend. Sadly, they did not do so well. Good job girls on a great season. Boys region starts on the 21st. Good luck with that guys. Region wrestling took place in BV this year. Sadly I don’t know the outcome of the tourney, but I will gladly write who placed next week. Wresting state will take place on the 15th and 16th at UVU. Upward Bound spent the weekend at SUU for a TRIO leadership conference. Students were able to make friends from all over the state. Different Upward Bound and ETS programs from different colleges met at SUU for a leadership conference. Students had a lot of fun and were able to create a Public Service Announcement that is now on you tube. There is only half a day of school Monday and Tuesday the 11th and 12th for SEOPs. Midterm is on the 15th. Well have a good week.

“Oh no! The cow on Old McDonald’s farm won’t moo! How will they get the heifer to sing? They ask those silly pigs, Bo Peep’s run-away sheep, the red rooster, and the cute chicks. Still, that cow is mute. Finally, they place the problem into the hooves of the wise, old mule. After complimenting the cow and making her feel like a team player, the cow finally lets her voice break through. Great Job 1st graders! What an enjoyable performance!” by Gracie Hinton, Mr. Ellett’s 5th grade, and thank you to Gracie for that wonderful review! Happy Valentines Day! Students all over the school spent last week getting ready for parties today. In the preschool students worked hard cutting out heart to decorate their Valentine sacks. When preschool student Lilly Morrill was asked about cutting out hearts she exclaimed, “It was fun! I cut out 10 hearts, I useded yellow, pink and pink.” Preschool student also have been given an opportunity to be introduced to Share Bear; this classroom visitor will stay with them until the end of the year. Each student will take a turn to take Share Bear home with them for a week. While Share Bear visits their home, “The students are to give the bear a new name”, explained Mrs. Jan Brown, “Then at the end of each day, they will sit down with their parents and write, draw pictures or even take pictures and enter it in Share Bear’s Travel Journal. When they bring the Share Bear back in his little suitcase with his travel journal, the student will stand up in front of the class and tell one or two things that they did during the week with Share Bear.” This activity will teach the children responsibility, how to share, critical thinking skills, self esteem skills and creativity, in a fun and interesting way. At the end of the year each student will receive a complete travel journal of Share Bears adventures. Students are continuing to work on writing and recognizing numbers, along with the math concept more than and less than. Mrs. Brown would like to say, “We con-

Believe You Can: Finish the Race

Laws of the Universe

By Cynthia Kimball I’m in the final months of my doctoral program. Sometimes it’s really hard to believe. I almost have to pinch myself. Truly, it seems just like yesterday that I began. When I look back, though, over the course of the 2.5 years I’ve completed so far, I have overcome, with God’s help, very steep mountains that seemed unattainable. But, as Matthew 19:26 tells us, “…with God all things are possible.” Don’t get me wrong, I still have a mountain to climb in finishing, but I know I can do it and I actually can now see the finish line where’s once, not too long ago, there was no finish line in sight. What mountain are you trying to climb? Finish a degree? Research and find your genealogy? Become more like our brother and Savior Jesus Christ? Be a better spouse? Be a better father or mother? Be a better son or daughter? Be a better friend or neighbor? Change from serving the world to serving God? Become better in school and or a sport? Lose weight? Follow a dream? Whatever your mountain, you can climb it. Tell yourself you can. See yourself already at the top, better yet on the bottom of the other side. And make sure to surround yourself with people who believe, love and support you even if your cheerleaders are only one or two others (and besides, its quality that matters not quantity). Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found

10,000 ways that won’t work” (BrainyQuote.com, 2013). This is the man who invented the light bulb. Can you imagine how different our life would be without it? Remember this the next time you make a mistake. Simply say, “I’ve just found another way that won’t work, and so, I’ll just keep going until I find one that does.” The people that succeed in life believe. They have faith and they have a foundation. And they stay away from those that tell them they can’t, they’re no good, they’ll never amount to anything, they’re just like their brother or sister (who’ve failed), etc. I know one young woman who I consider a daughter. I truly believe we’re related by love. She’s brilliantly gifted in music. She writes and she plays the piano. I love her. I cannot wait until she contin-

ues to write, play and record to teach the world about “the divine” through her gift. I believe, as she continues to believe in herself, and her talent, she will finish her race. After all, the was entrusted with these musical gifts from God. And besides, the world desperately needs them. I pray that she will pray, like you, for God to pave a way for her/and your dream to unfold. He does hear and answer our prayers especially if they’re right and we have faith. So, believe you can; and finish your race. Cynthia Kimball is a speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC, and a doctoral student in Workforce Education Leadership.

Door Warning

The door of the science office at my high school opens outward, and a number of students have been whacked by it. To prevent any more mishaps, one of the teachers stuck a warning on the door advising people not to stand too close. There was also a comic strip attached showing a student being hit by a door being opened. One day I was pushing a cart into the hall and opened the door extra wide. To my horror the door struck a student standing outside. After determining that he was all right, I asked why he was behind the door even though the warning was there. “I was reading it,” he replied.

What’s in a Name?

A little girl asked her moI couldMy real name is Wilton, but everyone at the plastics factory where I work calls me Dub. And that’s where the confusion began. A woman from the front office came by with a form to fill out. But when she asked for my name, I wasn’t sure which one to give. Waiting patiently for me to make up my mind, she said, “I don’t have any easier questions.”

Fastidious

My mom admitted to being a less than fastidious housekeeper. One evening my dad returned home from work, walked into the kitchen and said, “You know, dear, I can write my name in the dust on the mantel.” Mom turned to him and sweetly replied, “Well, darling, that’s why I married a college graduate.”

Wills, Trusts, and More

What Controls: The Will, or “The Box”? by Jeffery J. McKenna

To answer the above question, I must first tell you what I mean by “the box.” When I say “the box,” I am referring to the beneficiary designation box found in many financial instruments. For example, life insurance policies, annuity contracts, IRAs (individual retirement accounts), and other retirement plans allow the owner to designate (usually in a box or line on the form agreement) who is to be the beneficiary or recipient of the proceeds upon the owner’s death. In addition to the above categories of beneficiary designations, many bank accounts, investment accounts, stock certificates and CDs (certificates of deposit), allow for a POD (Pay On Death) beneficiary. As with the insurance, annuity and retirement account beneficiary designations, the designation of the POD beneficiary is usually done by inserting one or more names in a box or line on an account agreement. Now that I have explained the question, what is the correct answer? If someone has designated a former spouse as the beneficiary on a life insurance policy or retirement plan, can a new will designating a new spouse as the beneficiary of all the individual’s assets supercede the earlier designation? In other words, does the designation in the will supercede the designation in the box? The answer is no. In almost all cases, the will does not supercede the contractual designation. Many people mistakenly believe that the will controls the distribution of all their assets and supercedes any earlier beneficiary designations. It is understandable that many people have this mistaken

belief. First, a will has many formalities associated with it. A will generally has to have the signatures of at least two unrelated witnesses. An attorney normally prepares the will. It is usually notarized. Often much time and thought accompanies the signing of the will, as well as other formalities. On the other hand, the beneficiary designation is usually very simple. Usually, it involves nothing more than printing or typing a name in a box. There have been many spouses and children very surprised to learn that although a loved one’s will was reviewed and updated the older beneficiary designations control. Another matter to be considered with regard to beneficiary designations is that they are limited. If the beneficiary designation is just a line or box, there is no opportunity

to describe how the proceeds should be used or who should receive the proceeds if one of the named beneficiaries predeceases the owner. It should be noted that if the beneficiary designated in the financial instrument has predeceased the owner and there is no surviving contingent beneficiary or if the named beneficiary is designated as the “estate,” the terms of the will or state statute governing the distribution of assets when there is no will will govern the distribution of the proceeds. In conclusion, proper estate planning involves a thorough review of all assets and beneficiary designations. It is very important that beneficiary designations be coordinated with an individual’s estate plan. Jeffery J.

ESCALANTE News

by Marlene Haws ~ 826-4859 • marleneh@color-country.net Last week I reported that Kevin and Clint Porter had been home to visit their parents, Carolyn and Vergean Porter. What I didn’t know was that Sloan and Vera Lynn Porter, Midway was here the same weekend and their son, Jared, came from Cedar City, where he is attending school. So they all had a good time being together. The men hauled wood, fixed water faucets and even installed a doorbell for them. Vergean is doing better since his bout with pneumonia. Lane and Geraldine Liston went on a little trip to Salt Lake with Danny and Sherrie Meisenbach. They met with part of the Johnny and Peggy Meisenbach family up there. Geraldine and Sherrie and Peggy and her daughter Amy Alvey all had a good time shopping around together and the men all went in another direction. That night they all got together for dinner at the home of Jimmy and Amy Alvey. I had an e-mail from Sara Shurtz Vincent, Kanab, who grew up here in Escalante. She is a daughter of the late Chase and Helen Shurtz, a sister to Susan Shurtz and is married to Vince Vincent. Sara, a registered nurse, is the case manager of Home Care and Hospice in Kanab and her son, Adam Cowles, married with children, is the manager of the Verizon store in Kanab. Her other son, Matthew Cowles, lives in Delaware, works for

the University there and is a Technical Director for live theatre. He plans to be married in May. Sara’s husband, Vince, just ran his 7th marathon (26.2 miles), with a time of 4 hrs and 18 min. Pretty good for the over 50 group! Sara Says she doesn’t run. She just keeps the running clothes clean and buys the Gatorade! She also reads our news every week! Bring Vince here to run in our marathon next Fall, Sara! Lynn and Judy Griffin, Don and Gwen Porter went to Mesquite last weekend “For a Cooper Tires Meeting” they said! Lynn’s and Judy’s kids were there on Saturday night to take them to dinner and celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

College-Age Women Throughout Utah Invited to Enter “Maude Adams Look-Alike Contest” MT. PLEASANT - The Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area and Snow College, home of the Mormon Pioneer Heritage Institute, are challenging all college-aged females in Utah to see which

of them can most look like late19th and early-20th century actress Maude Adams. By so doing, they can win a weekend vacation to Michigan’s beautiful Mackinac Island. The Maude Adams lookAlike Contest will begin on Feb. 17, sponsored in conjunction with an episode of the documentary series “Discovery Road,” airing on that day at 7:30 p.m. on KJZZ TV Channel 14. At that time, women at colleges, universities and cosmetology schools will be invited to enter he contest. During the contest period, participants will try to make themselves up to look as similar as possible to Maude Adams. Today’s college-age students might ask “Who is Maude Adams, and why would

anyone want to look like her?” Indeed, to much of history, Maude Adams is forgotten. But at one time, she was one of the most talked-about (i.e., mysterious) and highest-paid actresses in her day. “The legends that have grown up about Maude Adams are without end. She is the most guessed-about person in stage life,” wrote the New York Times in 1914. “There is no woman on the stage so genuinely beloved by the public at large,” wrote Munsey’s Magazine in 1905. She was the original Peter Pan—way before Sandy Duncan made the role “hers.” She was the inspiration behind the film “Somewhere In Time,” still held by many as the most romantic film of all time (more on that below).

And she was from Utah. That’s where “Discovery Road” and the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area (MPNHA) come in. The MPNHA is a federally designated area devoted to preserving and promoting the pioneer history and heritage along U.S. 89 in central-southern Utah. The area also includes Utah State Route 12 (Utah’s one and only All-American Road), and Utah State Route 24 (a Scenic Byway), and encompasses Sanpete, Sevier, Piute, Wayne, Garfield and Kane counties. The episode that will be broadcast on Feb. 17 explores the role of the performing arts in rural settlement-era Utah, and asks if Maude Adams might have ever appeared in the historic performance venues that dot the MPNHA. The episode will introduce a future one-hour documentary that will explore the life of Maude Adams. It will also introduce the contest. Contest details are forthcoming, but beginning on Feb. 18 interested contestants may call MPNHA Executive Director Monte Bona to register. Those who register will receive entry information later in February. The contest period will extend until May or June. The winner will receive a vacation for two to the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Mich. And this is where Maude Adams as the inspiration behind “Somewhere In Time” comes in. If you’re not familiar, “Somewhere In Time,” starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, is the story of a playwright who falls in love with the photograph of an old-time actress, and then through selfhypnosis travels back through time and establishes a relationship with her. It is the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island where the movie was filmed. That’s also where the film’s fan club, the International Network of Somewhere In Time Enthusiasts (INSITE), holds an annual event to celebrate the film. The next of those “Somewhere In Time Weekends” is in October, where the winner of the contest will be invited as the MPNHA’s guest. To register for the Maude Adams Look-Alike Contest, please call Monte Bona at 801-699- 5065, or email himat montebona@hotmail.com. —MPNHA

guitch in the third game. 45-34 and earned a 4th place in the tournament. Not bad for such a small team! James Edward, Prep Editor for the Deseret News, summed it up like this: “The Moquis have a new lease on the season after upsetting Bryce Valley in the first round of the region 20 tournament. There’s no reason they should simply be happy to be here either. Escalante proved in that win over Bryce Valley and then a 1 point loss to Piute in the region 20 semis that they can compete with anyone. A favorable bracket makes a deep tournament run very realistic.” Piute took the tournament with a first place win. Escalante played Monument Valley yesterday, Feb. 13, 4:00 P. M. at the Sevier Valley Center in Richfield. Ryan Cottam is the Moqui coach and Stephanie Steed is the assistant. Congratulations to them also on a job well done.

Savannah Steed suffered an injury in a BB game a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t able to play in the tournament. It is hoped that she is doing better by now but she won’t be playing ball for a while. Mandy Barnson is recovering from surgery. We wish her well. Shane Young’s mom, Dee Young, was in a car accident last week. Hope she is doing okay. Tom Drown was taken to the hospital on Sunday following a fall. Hope everything is okay with him. Memorial Day is just around the corner and, for those of you seeking cemetery records, Marilyn Jackson has a website online at www.findagrave.com. Marilyn has put in a lot of hours on this project and says it has been identified by some as Marilyn’s Morbid Manuscript. Nevertheless it should have some good information in it. Robby Woolsey is keeping it updated.

TORREY News Adus Dorsey Our ever temperamental and unpredictable Mother of Nature continues to toy with the weather patterns in Wayne County all the way from the Fish Lake summit to Hanksville, 100 + miles to the East. Last week’s springtime temps and semi-sweat shirt weather was the proverbial springtime carrot hanging in front of us that for a few days provided just a small and somewhat winter time inconceivable taste of what it is surely to come in Wayne County. But not just yet as we still have a long winter to go as most of us know. Thank goodness for Wayne High Sports to keep our minds busy as we anxiously anticipate more suitable temperatures. February 19th at 10 a.m. during the regularly scheduled Wayne County Commissioners meeting in Loa, the Best Friends Animal Society in concert with the Wayne County Color Country Animal Welfare organization will make a “Big Fix” presentation. Best Friends is dedicated to helping reduce the number of feral cats or “community” cats and dogs in Utah, which has also been the purpose of Color-Country Animal Welfare www.colorcountryanimalwelfare.org since it was organized in 2009 in Torrey, Utah. This is a great Wayne County opportunity to sterilize and inoculate feral or family cats and dogs at little or no cost. To make this much needed event a Wayne County wide success and avoid a mass migration of un-neutered and un-inoculated pets from Wayne County to Garfield and Sevier Counties please refrain from posting this notice near litter boxes or where dog and cats are likely to congregate, i.e. dumpsters, trash cans, chicken houses and wood sheds. Simplify your life “Spay and Neuter your pets” says Jen Howe, and plan on attending the February 19th 10 a.m. regularly scheduled Wayne County Commissioners meeting at the Wayne County Courthouse in Loa to learn more about how “you” can make a real difference in Wayne County animal welfare.

FYI PANGUITCH

by Mack Oetting ~ mackoetting @gmail.com The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah is one of only four UCI sanctioned multi-stage American pro cycling events in 2013. The Tour will be showcasing some of the world’s most prestigious teams and cyclist for six days in August. This race is the top international cycling event that follows the Tour de France. The Tour of Utah has achieved world class statues. This event not only represents a forum for showcasing athletic perfection, but communicates a broader message how individual attention to personal health and physical activity at every age will lead to a stronger healthier society. For the first time the Tour of Utah professional cycling event, organizers will include several cities and venues in Southern Utah. Of the 10 host venues unveiled, seven are first-time venues. The Tour of Utah will begin on Monday August 5, with opening festivities in Cedar City and will continue across the state for six day of racing. Tuesday, the 6th to Sunday, August 11. In last years race, seven of the 17 teams competed in the Tour de France, earlier in the year. Spanning almost the entire length of the state the Tour of Utah will begin in southern red rock country near Bryce Canyon National Park and will finish among the alpine peaks of the Wasatch Front in northern Utah. The tour is known as “America’s Toughest Stage Race” it featured 38,500 feet of climbing over the 543 miles covered in the six days in last

year race. Tuesday starts off leaving Brian Head to Cedar City on leg 1. This is scary with those down hill runs, its bad going down them in a car. Wednesday: they leave Panguitch for a ride out to Torrey on Highway 12. This leg is 138 miles and they expect to do this in 5 hours. It takes 3 hours in a car. Thursday: Richfield to Payson. Friday: Salt Lake City. Saturday: Snowbasin Resort to Snowbird Ski resort Sunday: finish up in Park City. This race will bring a lot of exposure to our area and the beauty of Highway 12. When I get more information on the Tour, I’ll let you know, such as time and when it will be in the rest of the Towns along 12. A big “ thank you” to the officials that brought the Tour here to Panguitch. More good news, the BMW bikers will be back in June, the week after the Quilt Walk. The Beamers went to the Nationals held last year in Colorado. They have been coming here for the last 14 years. The first few years they tent camped, but as they grow older the Motels look a whole lot more enticing. Pay attention guys the 14th is Valentines Day, you might want to take your better half out to dinner, treat her to some flowers or candy. The following week is the President’s holiday and it is on Monday and you will have a three day week end, go some

where its warm. Hot tip keep your gas tanks full, oil futures are up to the mid $90s a barrel and gas prices are on the way up, if you haven’t noticed. Even in the SLC area it’s up to $3.00 a gallon. Big oil, when the economy gets going, shut down their refineries to create a shortage. This and oil speculators who buy barrels of oil, hold on to them also creating shortages. You can buy barrels of oil and you never have to take delivery on them, then

just wait till the price goes up, then sell. The good news for you that have 501 accounts, four years ago the market was a 5,600 this last week the market reached 14,000 and hopefully you have recovered your saving from the crash of 6 years ago. It was a good storm, especially coming on the week end, it should go a long way to filling up the lake. Keep the Love of Valentines Day for all Year. Mack O.

USDA Announces Request for Applications for Farm to School Grants

National Program Continues to Increase Local Foods in Schools and Provides New Economic Opportunities for Producers of All Kinds WASHINGTON, DC – Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan announced on February 6 the release of a request for applications (RFA) for the latest round of USDA’s Farm to School grants. These grants help eligible schools improve the health and wellbeing of their students and connect with local agricultural producers. “USDA’s Farm to School grants connect schools with their local farmers, ranchers and food businesses, providing new economic opportunities to food producers and bringing healthy, local offerings into school cafeterias,” said Merrigan. “USDA continues to make improvements to the nutrition of food offered in schools, and investing in farm to school programs is yet another important opportunity to encourage our nation’s kids to make lifelong healthy eating choices.” This year, three different kinds of grants will be available. Planning grants are intended for schools just getting started on farm to school activities, while implementation grants are available for schools seeking to augment or expand existing efforts. Additionally, eligible non-profit entities, Indian tribal organizations, state and local agencies, and agriculture producers or groups of producers may apply for support service grants in order to conduct trainings, create complementary curriculum, or further develop supply chains, among other activities. Proposals are due at midnight EST, April 24, 2013. To assist eligible entities in preparing proposals, USDA will host a series of webinars related to the application process: March 5, 2013, 1:00 EST – Planning Grants March 6, 2013, 1:00 EST – Implementation Grants March 7, 2013, 1:00 EST – Support Service Grants The Farm to School Grant Program is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which authorized and funded USDA to assist eligible entities, through grants and technical assistance, in implementing farm to school programs that improve access to local foods in eligible schools. The Act provides $5 million annually to support grants, technical assistance, and the federal administrative costs related to USDA’s Farm to School Program. In this funding cycle, USDA anticipates awarding up to $5 million in grants. Healthier school meals are a key component of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by the First Lady as part of her Let’s Move! campaign and signed into law by President Obama. The new meal requirements are raising standards for the first time in more than fifteen years and improving the health and nutrition of nearly 32 million kids that participate in school meal programs every school day. —USDA Farm to School Program

When to See a Doctor for Stomach and Digestive Problems

676-2621 Garfield 836-2622 Wayne

Ingesting food and drink each day is critical to human survival, but this can potentially cause any number of health issues. In fact, problems related to the stomach, digestion, and elimination of waste are some of the most common complaints people experience. Common Problems You Can Self-Treat You can treat several common problems related to the stomach and intestines. Heartburn and sour stomach can be treated with antacids, products such as Zantac 150 or Prevacid 24HR. However, you must read each part of the label closely, as each product carries age limits, safe time limits for self-use, warnings, precautions, dosing information, and conditions under which you should see a physician. If you ignore any of these items, you risk serious harm in many ways, such as by failure to get diagnosis and treatment for cancer. You can also treat constipation with several different types of laxatives. When choosing a laxative, choose safer products such as docusate (e.g., Colace, Surfak). Avoid mineral oil and castor oil, and be sure you do not overuse such stimulants as senna and bisacodyl, as they can lead to dependence. Check the age limits on each package and do not give a product to a patient under the ages stated on the label. You can self-treat diarrhea in patients aged 6 years and above with loperamide (Imodium A-D) or in those aged 12 years and above with bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol). In each case, as always, make sure to read and follow the entire label. When self-treating constipation or diarrhea, you must make sure that the conditions do not persist beyond a certain time (see below), because they are no longer safe to treat without a physician’s care. When to See a Physician There are a far greater number of instances in which you should see a physician. For example, vomiting is a common but potentially dangerous problem. The only type of vomiting you can treat without seeing a physician is when it was caused by motion sickness, as from a carnival ride or a trip in a boat, plane, or car. If the patient did not undergo any strange or unusual type of motion in the past few hours, you should see a physician. The patient may have a stomach flu, food poisoning, or any of a number of other conditions. If the patient continues vomiting and cannot drink fluid, the physician may order supplemental IV fluids to prevent and/or treat dehydration. Diarrhea that lasts more than 48 hours from the first loose stool can also lead to dehydration and electrolyte loss. You can help prevent this by purchasing and using an appropriate electrolyte solution, such as Pedialyte. However, using this does not mean that you will be safe in allowing the diarrhea to go beyond 48 hours without seeking a physician’s care. No antidiarrheal product is safe for a child under the age of 6 years. Constipation can be self-treated for no more than 7 days. It should never be self-treated if the patient has nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain, as these could be signs of appendicitis.

director of government affairs for Trout Unlimited. “This bill would help ensure that when wind and solar energy development occurs on public lands, there are resources available to protect and restore habitat and secure public access in the affected areas.” The bi-partisan Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act, H.R. 596, would bring wind and solar energy in line with other forms of energy development on public lands by establishing a royalty payment system and sharing half of the revenues from development with state and local government. Another portion of the revenues would be placed in a conservation fund to protect and improve habitat and create access for hunters and anglers. Finding a balance between energy development

and habitat conservation is important to communities that rely on jobs from both the energy and outdoor recreation sectors. A report released by the Department of the Interior showed recreational visits to public lands alone generated nearly $48.7 billion in economic activity and supported 403,000 jobs nationwide in 2011. So it goes without saying that maintaining those lands is important. “We are already seeing wind and solar play a role in our public lands. But right now we lack the resources to balance energy development with fish and wildlife conservation,” Curley said. “This bill gives us some security that as we move forward, the lands that we as hunters and anglers value will be protected.” —Trout Unlimited

by Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Mike Thompson (D-CA), Joe Heck (R-NV), and Jared Polis (D-CO). The bipartisan bill would put royalty money from public land wind and solar energy development toward conserving the pristine fisheries and healthy herds of pronghorn, elk and deer the West is known for. Also important to note is the money this bill would funnel to counties and states, many of whom voiced their support for the bill in its previous introductions. This legislation underscores the fact that sportsmen and women don’t have to choose between the need for domestic energy and the need for healthy habitat. “We want our public lands to be great places to fish and hunt,” said Keith Curley,

Practical Money Matters

When Retiring Together Doesn’t Make Sense by Jason Alderman

Back when people from my parents’ generation were first planning their lives together, most married couples looked forward to working hard for a few decades, buying a house, raising a family and then retiring together while they still had enough money and energy to travel and pursue favorite hobbies. Some couples do manage to pull this off and thrive; but for many others, any of a host of obstacles can block their ability to retire at the same time. For example: • Thanks to periods of unemployment, home-value decline or 401(k) account loss suffered during the Great Recession, many couples simply don’t have enough money to retire together comfortably. • If there’s a significant age difference, one spouse may not have accumulated enough Social Security credits to qualify for a benefit by the time the other is ready to retire. • Women often worry that the couple hasn’t saved enough since they’re statistically likely to survive their spouses – often for a decade or more. • One spouse must continue working to supply employer-provided medical coverage until both reach Medicare eligibility age (65 in most cases). • One spouse is just hitting his or her stride, career-

wise, and isn’t ready to slow down. Among couples who have managed to save enough to retire together, when it comes time to pull the trigger many realize they haven’t fully agreed on where or how to retire; or they discover that their wishes have diverged over the years. This can put tremendous strain on a marriage if you’re not willing to compromise and talk things through. Long before you actually retire, ask yourselves: • Should we downsize to a smaller dwelling or even move to a retirement community? • Sell the house, buy a trailer and live like nomads for a few years? • Move to a warmer climate or to be nearer our grandchildren? • Move to a state with lower taxes or cost of living? • Start a small side business to keep money rolling in? • Are we finished supporting our children financially? Even before asking those tough questions, you already should have begun estimating your retirement income needs. Social Security has a helpful online Retirement Estimator that can help (www.ssa.gov/estimator). After you’ve explored various retirement scenarios, consider hiring a financial planner to help work out an investment and savings game plan, or to at least review the one you’ve devised.

Along with the financial impact retirement will have on your marriage, keep in mind that this may be the first time that you’ve been together, day in and day out. Many people are so consumed by their jobs that they haven’t taken time to develop outside interests and hobbies. Well before retirement, you and your spouse should start exploring activities and networks of friends you can enjoy, both together and independently. Consider things like volunteer work, hobbies, athletic activities or even parttime employment if you miss the workplace interaction and need the money. And finally, if your plan is to have one spouse continue working for a while, try living on only that one salary for a few months before retiring as an experiment. This will give you an inkling of how well you’ll do financially and whether you might both need to keep working to amass more savings. Jason Alderman directs Visa’s financial education programs.
