WAYNE WINS REGION 20 58 – 51 ... Adus F. Dorsey II
Friday night the 10th of Feb the Wayne High Badgers Girls Basket Ball team pounced onto the court in Cedar City for the last ball game of Region 20 play against one of their arch rivals the formidable Piute Thunderbirds, and the nearly unstoppable Kierra Gleave. Starting off the game the Ladies Badgers from Wayne High scored two points with an easy looking lay up at the tip off at which time the focused Lady Badgers never looked backed. In what was reminiscent of the John Stockton era
in Jazz Basketball, Rebekah Ramussen ran circles around her Piute opponents leaving some of them dizzy at half court. The internet audience and cameraman at www.streamocity.com often had a hard time tracking Rebekah’s play and some of the homebound viewers required a dose of Dramamine before the second half. Textbook passing and scoring by the Lady Badgers dominated much of the first half with Hayley Robbins making her shots; scoring 18 points, for the Badgers look as easy as a

2011 AHA DISTANCE HORSE OF THE YEAR IS NO ACCIDENT
spring walk in Capitol Reef National Park. Watching the gazelle like moves of Whitney Coleman; scoring 9 points, was almost like something you would see on the Nature or extreme sports channel. Under the basket Darci Clark; scoring 8 points, controlled the ball with the tenacity of a Sumu wrestler, and at one point in the third quarter Sarah Taylor; scoring 13 points, sent a Piute player sliding across the court like a NHL hockey puck. All around Coach (and good guy) Jan Ellett called the game with precision deserving of championship play. Selectively placed timeouts and player rotation provided the Badger ladies time to regroup and adjust their play accordingly, and follow through with the much deserved win. To the professional credit of the Piute Thunderbirds they never let up, clawing back from an 18 point deficit into a nail biting fourth quarter that had a live internet audience, “puckered on their couches”, and praying their internet connection would not give out under the intense game pressure. The jubilant 2012 Wayne High Badgers Girls Basketball team jumped, screamed and cried as they received the coveted Region 20 trophy. The excitement continues at the Sevier Valley Center in Richfield on Wednesday February 15th. Don’t Miss It! The last time the Wayne High Lady Badgers took Region was in 2004 under the expert direction of Coach Heidi Woolsey. They then went on to beat Panguitch “again” to take the 2004 State Championship. GO BADGERS!!!!!!
OT Sara Moniet RSI (Rave On Ravenwood x OT Dysara RSI), a 2004 dark chestnut owned by M.A. “Crockett” Dumas of Escalante, Utah was named the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) 2011 Distance Horse of the Year, adding one more award to a long list of 2011 accomplishments. “Sara” covered 1,675 competition miles in 2011, completing 31 of 31 rides with 10 overall wins and 9 Best Conditions. The 7 year-old mare won two 200mile rides, one 165-miler, one 155-miler, and finished all but one of her rides in the Top Ten. Coupled with Distance Horse of the Year honors, Sara was named the AHA High Point 50-99 mile Endurance horse. The American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) awarded Sara the War Mare Award and the Belesemo Arabians Pioneer Award for the Heavyweight Division. Lastly, Sara was awarded the Drinkers of the Wind performance award by the Institute of the Desert Arabian Horse. “Well everybody thinks their horse is the greatest horse in the world,” says
Crockett Dumas. “But she is really a great all-around horse. I bred her and her mother and father ... after riding 37,500 miles, I don’t spend a lot of time on good horses. She’s a great horse.” Dumas has been breeding for excellent endurance horses since the late 70s and has been successful, producing several champions over the last 30 years. “She’s no accident,” he says about Sara, but Dumas noticed a spark that made her standout in his eyes in 2011. While competing in multi-day races, scheduled one after another, other riders chose to ride a combination of horses, while Sara rode on through. “When you have fresh horses thrown at you every day; for a horse to do what she did—complete, run up front, and win—that’s really something very, very special. And carry more weight at the same time,” says Dumas referring to the heavyweight division
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) invites minority farmers and ranchers in Garfield County and across the nation to voluntarily join the USDA Minority Farm Register to receive information and opportunities from USDA agencies. “The new Minority Farm Register is an outreach tool to reach underserved farmers and ranchers who are not currently enrolled in USDA loan, farm or conservation programs,” said Brad Reeve, Garfield County FSA County Executive Director. “The Register is a shared outreach list that will help USDA, community-based organizations and minority-serving educational institutions to communicate with minority farmers and ranchers.” By joining the Register, minority producers may receive outreach materi-
als, newsletters, and program announcements from USDA agencies. They may also receive information and assistance from other USDA-approved outreach partners, such as community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and minority-serving educational institutions. USDA will carefully control access to and use of the Register. Individuals wishing to join the Register must sign and date a form that provides their name and address. Providing phone numbers, e-mail address, race, ethnicity, gender and farm or ranch location will be voluntary, although the additional information increases the producer’s opportunities for receiving timely assistance. The Register pamphlet with the registration form is available at the Garfield County USDA Service Center or from approved USDA outreach partners.
(when tack and rider weigh over 211 lbs. combined) in which they ride. “She’s got a great mind. She really likes people. I don’t pay much attention to what they look like, but she happens to be really pretty—she looks like her foundation mare.” Dumas plans to continue to use Sara in endurance races and might add to the one foal she has had, but his breeding has slowed in recent years due to the poor economy. He has no doubt in her ability to continue on the path she’s on now. “At this age, I’m the one that gives out. I’m the weak link! Sara has no trouble at all.”

WORKING IN GCSD WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? As changes in District wide staffing is the main item of discussion, I have been asked by some individuals, “What benefit is there to work in Garfield School District?” The word “benefit” is a term which may encompass different areas depending on your point of view. For some it is tied directly to financial status, to others it could mean the opportunity to live in rural Utah next to family and friends. I will focus on the financial benefits of working in the District. The average monthly salary for a teacher in Garfield School District with a bachelor’s degree is $2,644. We fall in the bottom one third of the State in this category, but offer more than Nebo, Cache, Grand, Box Elder, Washington, Wayne, or North Summit in this area. On the top end of the teacher pay scale, a teacher with a master’s degree in our District, ranks 19th out
of 42 districts on the maximum salary pay scale. All medical insurance is fully funded by the District at no cost to the employee, this is approximately $13,200. For full time employees, the District also pays into a group life policy valued at $40,000 and long term disability. All full time employees also receive contributions into the Utah Retirement System and 1.5% of the salary into a 401K plan. The average total compensation in salaries and benefits for a teacher in Garfield School District is $72, 952 compared to $69,785 on the State average. I acknowledge the hard work of teachers and staff to ensure a quality education for the students in the District. Another positive perspective is the median teacher to student ratio in the District is 14.72 students to every teacher; the State median
is 21.80 students to one teacher. This means we have smaller classes in the District which provides more individualized instruction for the student. The current expenditures per student in the District are $10,618 for FY11 compared to $6,078 in the State of Utah. These services are provided to the students with a local tax effort in FY 10-11 of .006109, this tax rate puts Garfield lower than 33 other Districts in the State. I would like to thank the teachers, staff, communities and tax payers for entrusting us with your most precious resource; your children and their education. I would also like to thank the School Board for their continued support on making difficult decisions to improve the direction of the District for greater academic achievement of all students.

A QUICK COURSE IN PRESCRIPTION MAIL ORDER SERVICE AND PBMS (Medco, Humana,Caremark, Express Scripts, et al )
Have you ever had to miss doses on your medications because you did not receive them before you ran out? Have you received medication you did not order or got too much or too little? Were the tablets different in shape or color? We’re they screened for possible drug interactions? Does MailOrder know your medical profile, for example if you are diabetic, have asthma or arthritis? Are you getting what you paid for, that is have you needed answers to your questions about sideeffects or an allergic reaction? The answer to these questions and many others are all too frequently, “no.” Your Community Pharmacists are always available to take care of your health problems, rain or shine; day or night. In surveys, pharmacists have been selected as the Most Trusted Profession and with good reason: your health is important to your Community Phar-
macist. 23,000 pharmacies employ over 300,000 full-time employees who dispense nearly half to the nation’s retail prescription medications and without these independent pharmacies, citizens in rural areas would unnecessarily suffer having limited or no access to this important aspect of medical services. The PBMs who represent the Mail-Order industry have faced allegations of “drug switching,” increasing their profits by steering patients toward more expensive medications, whose manufacturers pay rebates to the PBMs for promoting their particular medication. Such concerns have been a factor in litigation brought against the major PBMs who have paid out more than $400 million to date to settle those claims. You must read the fine print in anything you sign with Mail-Order or live with the consequences. Last week a lady who wanted to get her
medication at a local pharmacy had her prescription rejected. The pharmacist had to call the insurance company who told her that she could not get it filled at her local pharmacy. This is called Mandatory MailOrder, where the patient is required to get their prescriptions filled at Caremark or they will pay cash if they select their local Community Pharmacy.

tHe lAuGhiNg pOiNt!!
By Cynthia Kimball Looking back over my life, I was an observer of leaders, but I was not conscious of it at the time. Yet, I distinctly remember liking to watch people lead in all positions in life from my equestrian coach to my junior lifesaving instructor to my mom who was my softball coach, and even to my father who owned several businesses. I saw good, best and better. I also saw bad, ugly and horrible. I do not think I ever really thought of myself as a leader growing up, even though I was elected to be co-caption of various sports teams. I guess it was something that was just not important to me at the time including what leadership meant. But then, just before attending the University of North Carolina in my 20s, I took a Dale Carnegie course. You know, their signature one, The Dale Carnegie Course in Human Relations and Public Speaking. I think this was the first course that really got me thinking about leadership. Prior to this I read An Enemy Called Average by John Mason which got me thinking more about leadership topics I had not given much thought to like wisdom, time management, humility, etc. Later, I became a manager of a small business here and there. I also attended more Dale Carnegie courses such as Leadership Training for Managers and Presentation Skills. And I really liked Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Soon after I became a junior college faculty member and then ad But even so, in my quest to become a better leader, I believe I also had a quest to become a better person. And so I began to observe more intently how leaders got to be leaders, read a little more, made mistakes in my own leadership endeavors, and worked to learn from them. All this to better understand what kind of a leader I wanted to become. And to determine what kind of leadership I functioned best under. In this quest, I learned about American businessman and writer Max Du Pree who researched and wrote extensively on leadership. Said Du Pree (1992) “A jazz band is an expression of servant leadership. The leader of a jazz band has the beautiful opportunity to draw the best out of the other musicians. We have much to learn from jazzband leaders, for jazz, like leadership, combines the unpredictability of the future with the gifts of individuals (as cited in Wren, 1995, p. 454). And so I believe it is with each one of us. As we go throughout life, do we bring out the best in others? I once heard Marlan J. Walker speak, a well known Nevadan, known for his service and humanitarian work throughout the world. Yes, he’s got an Elementary School named after him in Nevada, but that’s not
WHY DO YOU THINK YOU WERE BORN?
what’s important to him. But he did emphasize that service and humanitarian work were. As a matter of fact, I believe it was seven days after he spoke, that he was to go back into Peru doing more humanitarian and service work. Walker told of servicing in various places throughout Latin America and how the children there were so appreciative of a simple toy that we would not even consider a toy. So today, as you forge forward, how will you serve? I mean, really serve and do so with a heart full of faith, hope and charity. And what kind of humanitarian will you be? What kind of humanitarian work will you do? And last, what kind of leader are you? Hopefully, you will be one like Max Du Pree and you will bring out the best in others. Especially since, accord-
ing to one leader, Dr. David A. Bednar, who was also a university president, once asked a young man who wasn’t sure if he should spend two years serving, “Why do you think you were born?” (1998). And so it is with you. Why do you think you were born? According to Walker, it is to do two things: service and humanitarian work. Now it is up to each one of you to figure out how to accomplish the latter and do so as Du Pree would by bringing out the best in others. Now that, my friends, is leadership. Cynthia Kimball is a professional speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC, and a doctoral student in Workforce Education Leadership. She also writes frequently through Deseret Connect. E-mail: email@example.com
A flight attendant was on the redeye to Manila when a water leak developed in the galley, which eventually soaked the carpet throughout the cabin of the 747. A very sleepy passenger who had become aware of the dampness asked the attendant, “Has it been raining?” Keeping a straight face, the attendant replied, “Yes, but we put the top up.” With a sigh of relief, the passenger went back to sleep.
I recall a time when my son was about 18 months old. I had him strapped into a backpack and was rushing to catch the bus. Apparently I misstepped and fell down an entire flight of stairs (13 to be exact). I was bruised and bleeding and had torn my jeans ... but my main concern was, naturally, for my child. My fears were alleviated, though, when from behind me I heard a gleeful giggle followed by, “Again!”
Stationed with the Army near Tokyo, I taught a conversational English class to a group of Japanese businessmen. Wishing to acquaint me with their cuisine, my class took me to dinner at a local restaurant. I’ve never enjoyed seafood, and my hosts noticed my lack of enthusiasm when the odd assortment of raw and cooked fish was served. Intent on saving the evening, one man asked if I’d like a pizza. I accepted with delight. Soon a smiling waitress came to our table and placed before me a large, hot pizza - piled high with squid.
The Wedding Dress
When my sister got married, she asked to wear our mother’s wedding dress. The day she tried it on for the first time, I was sitting with Mother in the living room as Andrea descended the stairs. The gown was a perfect fit on her petite frame. Mother’s eyes welled with tears. I put my arm around her. “Don’t cry, remember you’re not losing a daughter, you’re gaining a son.” “That’s not why I’m crying. I used to fit into that dress!”
An eager salesman was trying to have a country storekeeper carry his product, and finally tried to bribe the fellow with a bottle of champagne. “Oh, my conscience wouldn’t let me take such a gift,” the business owner protested. “What if I sell it to you for a dime?” asked the salesman. “In that case,” replied the man, “I’ll take two.”

Its must be Sunday because it’s snowing out. This morning at church, Jan Frandsen was the youth speaker and talked about the earthquakes we had last night. I was watching TV at 7:00 pm when the first one hit, my wife was upstairs and didn’t feel a thing and the second one hit about 8:20 and she felt that one. When you live in an old home like ours, you always think the worst and maybe it was the foundation, but when it was only an earthquake that’s okay, especially when you’re from Calif. Speaking of snow, Brian Head has been opened all winter, with their snow making equipment, it lays down a good base and any snow they get just makes it better. Shawn Caine is one of the coaches for their ski team and they went up to Park City and came away with some medals for the first time. Last weeks retirement of Rob and Lori Veater was a little premature, they are coming back for their 20th year. When you have people like Rob and Lori who have a love for what they do you jump at keeping them out there in the dead zone. Rob has purchased a new hay cuber, if you need hay cubes for your stock, Rob’s your man. Mayor Talbot traveled north to get the grant money for the City Park. Some of this money will go for a new rest area. There is only two rest areas along highway 89 from Kanab north to SLC and the one in Big Rock Mountain area is
closed in the winter. This rest stop will be open year around. The City wanted to thank Hazard Brown for attending the meeting and upping the State’s money, so that a first class restroom could be built. There is a lot changes coming to the park, the grandstands at the rodeo grounds will undergo a rebuilding job, there are pictures of the stands that date back to 1915 and they aren’t very safe. The pavilion also will get a major overhaul, with new concrete floor and drinking fountain. The old restroom at the track will be used for storage and the parking lot, will finally be paved. The City is now getting all of this, engineered and when this is completed the work will be put out to bid. Hopefully the work will be completed by mid summer. This is a wonderful addition to Panguitch and the City Council in their quest to continue to make our Town a first class community is right on track. Thank for all their effort. . This money is from Federal and State Highway funds and won’t involve any of the City money. Speaking of first class buildings the new, old Courthouse is coming along on schedule. Because the weather has held off and there have been very few delays. The finish date is for July I think and maybe if nothing unforeseen happens it will be done. When the fire stations was built back in the 90’s the naysayers complained that it was way too big, and why do we need such a nice build-
ing? The Station is about 12 years old and will outlast all of us; this is a first class building and the County Building is going too exceed it, talk about a class act! I can’t wait for the open house. At the last boys home game, (Senior Night) a collection was taking up by the Students of PHS. This collection was for Steve Pollock from BV, who has cancer, and no insurance. Steve’s wife Michele is the daughter of Glenn and Barbara Leech and sister to Donny and Gary Leech. Steve is a cabinet maker and hasn’t been able to work for the last six month. There have been fund raisers out at Ruby’s and the people of BV are helping out where they can. The Students here were able to collect money and sell T shirts for total of over 9 hundred dollars, this money was giving to the Pollock family at the Bryce Valley game last Tuesday night. Commissioner Leland Pollock went down to Kanab to their dedication of their new 6 million dollar BLM building. He met up with Marilyn Berdick who is the Under Secretary of State of the Interior and made the pitch for paving the road out to Hole in the Rock. This should benefit the Eastern part of the County with more tourism. If you want a job out at the Park now is the time to apply, all the application are available over the internet.

Syrett April Le Fevre did a PE Assembly with the Elementary students on Friday.

1 IN 3 -- IS IT YOU?
Hi. My name is Rebekah Holbrook. For my FCCLA project I’m striving to educate our area about dating violence. Many people in our area do not think that teen dating violence is a problem. We are small communities and “those things just don’t happen here.” Are you aware that statistics show 1 out of every 3 teens in a relationship experiences dating violence? According to the Domestic Violence Therapist in Garfield county, our statistics here are actually a bit higher. Here are a few things to help you identify the symptoms of dating violence and how you can handle a dating violence relationship. Most kids, when they start dating, never even think they could ever possibly be dating a violent person. Today I’m going to tell you what dating violence is, what the symptoms are, how to help the person in the violent relationship, or yourself, if you are experiencing dating violence. Dating violence is serious. Dating violence is when there is physical abuse, sexual abuse, threats about hurting you or your family, and mental abuse. Not only does the “couple” get hurt, but others around them also may also experience pain. This pain to others may not be physical abuse. It could be a parent looking at their child, knowing something is wrong and yet being told nothing is wrong and that they can handle it. Symptoms to physical dating abuse or violence that you may see in others are, 1. Depression 2. Low self-esteem 3. No patience/ mad all the time 4. Feel like they can’t trust anyone 5. Cling on to their someone The Symptoms to being in a violent or abusive relationship • One person acting bossy and making all the decisions • Putting down their partner in front of people and friends • Threatening to kill him or herself • Blame YOU for “making” them treat you badly • Pressure you to have or force you to have sex • Stalking you, this can include constantly texting you, calling you to find out where you are and who you are with. You might think it’s about caring, but you’re partner is really concerned about controlling this relationship • If you are beginning to think that you are in a Dating violent/abuse relationship, ask yourself these questions. • Do you feel less confident when you are with your boyfriend or girlfriend? • Are you scared about doing or saying “the wrong thing?” • Do you find yourself changing your behavior out of fear or to avoid a fight? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might be in an abusive relationship. There are people who can help you. You’re not alone. Talk to your parents or another adult family member, a school counselor, a teacher, or someone else you trust. Call a help center or hotline to get help. Here are some Hotline phone numbers if you think you are in a violent/abusive dating relationship. These people can help. Give them a try. The National Domestic Violence Hotline toll-free: 1-800-799-SAFE (1800-799-7233), or see the website at www.ndvh.org. The National Teen Dating Abuse Hotline toll-free: 1-866-331-9474 or (1-866-331-8453 TTY). If there are parents worried about their kids being in a violent/abusive dating relationship here is how you can help. Your child may not know the difference of a violent relationship verses a healthy relationship, like if the boyfriend/girlfriend is pinching, slapping, hitting, or shoving. This is a sign of physical abuse. Talk with your teen about what makes a healthy relationship. Explain that a caring partner wouldn’t do something that causes fear, lowers self-esteem, or causes injury. Let teens know that they deserve respect in all of their relationships. Think about values and messages that you want to pass on. You could start by asking your child • Is your boyfriend or girlfriend easy to talk to when there are problems? • Does he or she give you space to spend time with other people? • Is he or she kind and supportive? If YOU are the one in the violent/abusive relationship here is how you can help yourself. Go to someone you fully trust, your parents, a friend, a councilor, a teacher. But until you know how to get away from the person who is violent/abusive, don’t tell them you are leaving. That would most likely cause them to get angry and do something to you. Or go to one of the hotlines listed above. With the person you trust, talk and see how you could do things. If you have tried the thing you and your trusted person come up with and it get’s worse, you might want to think about getting the police involved. Much of this information came from this website. http://www.everydayhealth.com/health-center/teen-relationship-abuse.aspx My goal with this project is that parents and teenagers will take time to talk about dating violence. Even if you think that your teen is not in a violent relationship, you should talk about these things. Often victims hide abuse from those around them because they either don’t recognize the abuse, are embarrassed by it or don’t know what to do about it. Could your child be the 1 in 3 teens in this situation? Are you that 1 in 3?

OBITUARIES Larry B. Brown
Circleville, Utah On February 9, 2012, Larry B. Brown, 67, was finally freed from the physical and mental pain of the MS he has fought for almost 30 years. He was born September 2, 1944 in Orem, Utah to William B. and Grace C. Mann Brown. He was their only child. He was raised in Provo and upon graduation from Provo High School he joined the Air Force. He served during the Vietnam War in Guam and Thailand as a photo interpreter. He served for 7 years. He joined the Utah Highway Patrol in 1970, and was stationed at the Port of Entry in Kanab. While being stationed in Kanab, he met Valeen Hulet, and they married November 19, 1970, their daughter Vanessa was born in 1971.

1976. Larry served the citizens of the State of Utah for 10 more years. In 1979 he received the Golden Beehive Award for the most stolen car arrests in the state. All those who met him as a trooper knew him to be fair. He was well respected by all. With his marriage to Valeen, Larry, being an only child, was blessed to gain seven brothers and sisters-in-law, as well as many nieces and nephews. His greatest joy was his children and grandchildren. He was so excited with the prospect of meeting his new granddaughter coming in March. He was so proud of his family’s accomplishments. He and Valeen were sealed in the St George Temple in 1983. He had a powerful testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and developed a passion for genealogy work that he loved to share. Because of his MS, his computer became his lifeline to the outside world, he spent many hours working on it. He was the Circleville Town news reporter for the Richfield Reaper for many years. He loved to tell stories and enjoyed anyone who stopped by to visit.

ASK A SPECIALIST:
Do You Have Tips for Reconnecting in Marriage? Our closest relationships can bring both joy and challenges. In fact, most relationships have approximately 12 things both parties disagree on at any given time. But what is more important than the struggles is what the couple does to build the relationship and reconnect. When we focus on the things that are going right in our relationships, we can more easily conquer the struggles we may face as a team. Consider these tips to reconnect and build a stronger marital relationship. • Listen to your partner every day. Sometimes we think we are being good listeners, but in reality, we are more rejecting than receiving. Listening is often about seeking connection with someone rather than giving advice or solving problems. Even if we ask for advice, we are often just seeking to be understood and validated. So, the next time your partner is sharing his or her thoughts with you, listen
carefully to what is being said, not just to the words but to what is important to him or her and why. • Laugh with your partner. When we were kids, we laughed 200 to 300 times a day, but the average adult laughs only 12 to 14 times per day. When we lose humor in our relationship, we may get too wound up and lose sight of the bigger picture. It is important to see humor in one another and in challenging moments. For good mental health, we are told to have five belly laughs a day. It’s not only good for our health, but it also strengthens relationships. • Look at your partner. You see the ones you love almost every day but when was the last time you looked at them deep in their eyes and really connected? Look in your partner’s eyes for about 30 seconds, be in the moment and pay close attention to his or her facial expressions. Look at the person as a whole, for
SCHOLARSHIP OF EXCELLENCE
Every year Wayne High School has awarded qualified seniors the Scholarship of Excellence Award. This award is made possible through donations from local businesses and alumni. The aide from this scholarship has helped numbers of students in their educational goals and is greatly appreciated. We’d like you to meet our seniors who may be applying this year. We will spotlight our seniors very soon so you can see who will be the recipients of your donation. Watch for them each week! If you are able to contribute to this cause donations can be sent to: Wayne High School Scholarship of Excellence P.O. Box 217, Bicknell, Utah 84715
who they really are, and not for what frustrates or hurts you. When you really connect with someone, you feel it deep inside and it also literally stimulates the brain, not to mention it helps you feel closer. • Touch daily. Physical touch is good for your health. Shoot for five hugs a day. Many of these will probably be from your partner, but they can also be from kids or others who are close. Touch could also be in the form of holding your partner’s hand while watching TV, giving them a kiss hello or goodbye or touching them on the shoulder or hair while walking by to acknowledge them. When we touch someone, we let them know they are important to us and it builds our relationship. By practicing these simple tips on a daily basis, we exercise our relationship muscles so that we continue to grow together rather than letting our relationship atrophy. Reconnecting doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money, but making investments every day can make a huge difference in the marital relationship and also in general happiness and satisfaction in life.

ESTATE PLANNING WHAT IS IT?
All of us at sometime in our lives have probably heard the phrase, “Set your house in order” or some similar principle. We may have heard the message as children when told to clean our room or as adults in the context of organizing our family or individual lives. This principle is estate planning. Estate planning is the process of organizing your affairs in such a way as to give what you have, to whom you want, when you want, in the way you want, at the lowest possible cost to you and those you love. Having your affairs in order brings peace and comfort. In fact, doing your estate planning may even make vacations more enjoyable. If you have done or updated your estate planning, the next time you leave on a long awaited trip you will not spend the first hour or more contemplating the question, “What would happen to everyone and ev-
erything that is important to me if I did not return?” Estate planning is arguably the easiest thing to procrastinate in our lives because we have until the very end to keep procrastinating! Although easy to procrastinate, completing the estate planning process brings a sense of accomplishment and great peace of mind. This is the first of a series of articles to be published every Wednesday. Future articles will discuss numerous issues related to estate planning. I am excited to share information regarding a topic important to all. I encourage you to cut and save those articles that interest you. If you already have estate planning documents, I recommend that you place the articles with your documents. If you do not already have estate
planning documents, I believe the information in this and future articles can be a useful tool in helping you work with qualified professionals in order to do your estate planning. The knowledge that you acquire will be beneficial whatever your status is in the estate planning process. Jeffery J. McKenna is an attorney licensed in three states and serving clients in Utah, Nevada, and Arizona.

SPANISH COMPUTER Once again one of our readers sent us (funny) copy that begs to be shared. Enjoy! A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English , nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. ‘House’ for instance, is feminine: ‘la Casa.’ ‘Pencil,’ however, is masculine: ‘el lapiz.’ A student asked, ‘What gender is ‘computer’?’ Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer’ should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men’s group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the feminine gender (‘la computadora’), because: 1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic; 2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else; 3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it. (THIS GETS BETTER!) The women’s group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine (‘el computador’), because: 1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on; 2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves; 3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model. The women won.

Marlene Haws Ph: 826-4859 • email@example.com Well, Spring has not yet arrived, but already there are plans being made for a lot of reunions this coming summer! An All School Reunion “The Town That Built Us” is being planned by the Griffin sisters, Marilee Miller and Marlene Stowe, to name two, but I’m sure there will be many more people involved before it is all said and done. It is scheduled for July 20 and 21, 2012. So mark that on your calendar and watch for results! The EHS Classes of ’52, ’53 and ’55 are also planning reunions. These are the classes of Deon Alvey, Carrie Griffin and Geraldine Liston. Deon graduated 60 years ago, so figure that up, along with the other two and you will know how old they all are! Just spring chickens…the lucky ducks! Carly Jo Christensen flew to Salt Lake from New York, where she lives and works, to spend some time with her parents, Clyde and Terrie Cristensen, who live in Erda, Utah. From there she went to St. George to attend the wedding of her cousin and friend, Jennifer Lyman and Todd Goodrich. Before returning to New York she and her mom, Terrie, came to Escalante to visit with her grandparents, Freland and Phyllis Alvey and Norman and Ardis Christensen. I’m surprised Ardis didn’t have the whole neighborhood at her house when the smell of baking bread and cinnamon rolls started wafting through the air. That’s what she, Carly and Terrie did the biggest part of one day! Twenty six members of the Escalante Camp of The Daughters Of The Utah Pioneers gathered together on Thursday, February 9th, for their monthly meeting. They met at the Senior Citizen Center for dinner then had their meeting immediately afterward. Victory Crawford gave the lesson on the mercantile business in Utah and how ZCMI got it’s start, among other things. It was a good meeting, as always. Get well cards were sent, from the first ward, on Sunday to Lois Reeves, who spent a little time in the hospital but is now back home and doing better. Also to Danielle Ganz and Peggy Soren who have both been feeling poorly. The Escalante First Ward Relief Society had their “Soup and Pie Night” on Friday 10th. Their en-
tertainment was “Steve Downs and the Red Hill Rangers,” from Parowan. Right next thing to the Bar J Wranglers! Everyone was invited so I hope you took advantage of the opportunity for a fun night! Brent and Patrice Cottam made a trip to Colorado last week to see Chad and Jordon Cottam and watch Chad’s team play basketball. Chad plays for the Eastern Wyoming College but they had a couple of games in Colorado, so that was a shorter trip for Brent and Patrice. Sounds like fun to me! Reed and Karen Munson recently made a trip to Provo to visit Reed’s mom, Nelda Munson and his sister, Barbara Munson. It was special as they went to help Nelda celebrate her 85th birthday. They had a nice dinner on her birthday with Nelda, Barbara, Reed, Karen, Milan Munson and Dee and Maureen (Munson) Nelson all in attendance. Then on Saturday they had an open house for all of Nelda’s grandkids, great grandkids and a few other friends including Jean Griffin and Bobbie and Ken Packer. 55 in all and a wonderful day! “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NELDA!” I wish we could have all been there. Neil and Maureen Wold (parents of Keleen Owen) recently returned from a two week trip to Italy, with their son whose name I do not know. But how nice for them and how nice of their son to go with them! Our Escalante girls basketball team lost a heart-
breaking game with Valley last Thursday night. They were victorious when they played Valley the last time, winning by 9 points. This time, however they were not so lucky. They lost by 7 points in a double overtime. Sorry girls, we still love you! Our boys still have two more games to play. One on the 14th, one on the 16th. So those will be over as you read this. We love you boys and remember, “It’s not whether you win or lose it’s how you play the game.” That’s what you will remember most! Larry Withers is inviting Friends and relatives who will be arriving in town on Sunday, February 19th, for services for Jackie Withers, to come to the Senior Citizen Center at 6:00 P. M. for dinner. Afterward breakfast food will be provided for them to take to their rooms for breakfast the following morning. Monday morning at 11:00 there will be a graveside service for Jackie at the Escalante Cemetery. Following the dedication of the grave, lunch will be served at the Escalante Stake Center; after which there will be a celebration of Jackie’s life. Monday evening relatives and friends are again invited to eat at the Senior Citizen Center. Larry wants to thank all his friends and relatives for all they have done for Jackie and himself. He also wants them to know this is his home and he doesn’t plan on going anywhere.

WAYNE COUNTY SEARCH AND RESCUE HIGH ANGLE RESCUE TEAM
Due to an increase in rescues that require specialty technical mountaineering skills, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office
recognized a need for a trained high angle rescue team. Due to the efforts of SAR Commander Rustin Grundy, and EMS Director Jeri Johnson, Ken Eley of Black Diamond Mountaineering was enlisted to train and certify members of the Wayne County SAR in high angle rescue. The Wayne County SAR volunteers endured a 60 hour academic course and a 60 hour hands-on field training. Elements of the training included rope ascents and descents in a technical environment, victim rescue using technical rigging, use and maintenance of technical mountaineering equipment, and many other as-
pects of technical rescue. Training sites ranged throughout Wayne County and into Emery County for a diverse experience in mountaineering conditions which included varying weather conditions and a variety of terrain. The members of the Wayne County Search and Rescue are an all volunteer group of local residents who take time out of their personal lives to serve the residences of Wayne County and those who visit our diverse countryside. The 120 hours of high angle rescue training is a testament to the dedication that these members feel towards Wayne County.
