BLM ISSUES FINAL DECISION FOR ORGANIZED GROUP USE ALONG HOLE-IN-THE-ROCK ROAD The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM) signed the Programmatic Environmental Assessment (EA) for Organized Group Use along Holein-the-Rock (HITR) Road Decision Record (DR) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) April 5, 2012. The BLM and National Park Service’s Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (GCNRA) began work on a Programmatic EA for Special Recreation Permits for organized use along HITR Road in Southern Utah in October 2010. GSENM and GCNRA foresaw a continuing desire for groups that exceed management prescriptions to travel along the road and visit its associated historic sites for the heritage, recreational, and educational values they provide. GSENM and the GCNRA jointly prepared this EA to analyze the effects of authorizing organized group activities that exceed existing group size limits along the road corridor. The GSENM Management Plan (MMP) prescribes group size limits of 25 in the GSENM Passage Zone along the HITR Road. However, the MMP also allows BLM to authorize permits for groups larger than 25 people with appropriate NEPA analysis. The HITR Road continues through the GCNRA Development Zone, and adjacent areas in the Recreation Area’s Natural Zone. GCNRA environmental analysis allowed for groups of up to 100 people in the Development Zone and 60 people in the Natural Zone.
This DR allows a maximum of 145 people at any one time to conduct both day use organized group activities at Dance Hall Rock and Hole-inthe-Rock Historic sites, as well as camping within the GSENM and GCNRA. The EA established criteria to be required of all permitted parties. The permitted group criteria includes: predetermined camp locations, sanitation facilities to be provided by the permit holder, a maximum of 29
vehicles per group, a length of stay of three days and two nights for large groups and 12 days for re-enactment/equestrian groups, and season of use and site restrictions will be applied to specific sites. The Programmatic EA for Organized Group Use along Hole-in-the-Rock Road and FONSI can be downloaded from the BLM Utah Environmental Notification Bulletin Board website: https://www.blm.gov/ ut/enbb/index.php.

DEVELOPERS PAY $30,000 FOR DAMAGING AND POLLUTING PANGUITCH LAKE
Companies and individual cited for unauthorized construction activities at Panguitch Lake Adventure Resort The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has entered into a Combined Complaint and Consent Agreement (CCCA) and an Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) with Polidori Corporation, Inc., PoliGold, LLC, and Veronica Polidori (collectively, Polidori) in response to alleged violations of the Clean Water Act at Panguitch Lake in Garfield County, Utah. EPA alleges that Polidori discharged dredged or fill material to the lake and adjacent wetlands, in violation of the Clean Water Act, during the construction of a marina and RV park. The AOC, which replaces an administrative order for compliance issued in September of 2010, addresses discharges of dredged or fill
DIXIE NATIONAL FOREST AND SUU PARTNER TO CELEBRATE EARTH DAY Join Dixie National Forest and Southern Utah University to celebrate Earth Day with free events planned between, April 19th-April 21st, 2012. The Dixie National Forest is a landscape of contrast in color, climate and culture through its geology, world class recreation, scenery and natural and heritage resources. The spectacular landscape of the Dixie National Forest will be presented in a special art exhibition entitled, Into the Woods: A Painted Diary of the Dixie National Forest by Arlene Braithwaite. Southern Utah University’s Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery offers a chance to see over 20 works depicting the landscapes within the Forest, by the well-known regional artist Arlene Braith-
waite, including work commissioned by the Dixie National Forest. “The Dixie National Forest is proud to be in partnership with SUU and the gallery opening. Arlene’s paintings provide a glimpse into the natural beauty that connects people to the Dixie National Forest.” said Forest Supervisor, Rob MacWhorter. This special exhibit will be featured in the newly created gallery in SUU’s Hunter Conference Center, second floor. There will be an opening reception Thursday April 19, 2012 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The show continues through Saturday, August 25, 2012. The exhibit’s hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00am-5:00pm, except holidays and special events in the Conference Center. Admission is free and the general public is encouraged to attend. In conjunction with Arlene Braithwaite’s opening exhibit, the Dixie National Forest and SUU will host a free screening of the film Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time, the first full-length, high definition documentary film ever made about the legendary conservationist Aldo Leopold. The film explores Aldo Leopold’s life in the early part of the twentieth century and the
many ways his land ethic idea continues to be applied all over the world today. Green Fire is a production of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature. The film shares highlights from Leopold’s life and extraordinary career, explaining how he shaped conservation in the twentieth century and still inspires people today. Although probably best known as the author of the conservation classic A Sand County Almanac, Leopold is also renowned for his work as an educator, philosopher, forester, ecologist, and wilderness advocate. Two free showings will be held on April 19th at 4pm and 7:30pm in the Great Hall of the Hunter Conference Center. Learn more about the Aldo Leopold Foundation and the Green Fire movie at www. aldoleopold.org. On Friday, April 20th, visit the free Earth Day fair located on SUU’s upper quad from 11-6pm. The fair will feature interactive projects for youth, free giveaways, informational booths, including one from the Forest Service. Visit http://www.suu.edu/pva/ artgallery for additional information.

material by Polidori, or persons acting on their behalf, to approximately 7.5 acres of Panguitch Lake and adjacent wetlands during the construction of a marina and RV park during 2007 and 2008. The unauthorized work included construction of a coffer dam in the lake, dredging and filling a large portion of an existing marina, and placement of large rocks along the perimeter of the new marina. Additional activities associated with the development of the RV park included construction of a rock wall, the discharge of large amounts of earthen fill, and placement of large rocks along a portion of the lake’s southern shoreline. “The construction at the Panguitch Lake Adventure Resort degraded more than seven acres of the lake and nearby wetlands,” said Mike Gaydosh, EPA’s enforcement director in Denver. “It is critical that those wishing to take actions that impact surface waters and wetlands contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers first to see if their planned activities can be permitted.” Polidori has paid a penalty of $30,000 and will remove and/or miti-
gate discharged material. Where material is removed, impacted areas must be restored to pre-impact conditions and grade. Prior to undertaking this work, Polidori must submit a plan for EPA approval that details how restoration and mitigation will be accomplished. Panguitch Lake and its adjacent wetlands provide numerous functions and values, including aquatic and wildlife habitat, groundwater recharge, flood attenuation, recreation and aesthetics. Placement of dredged or fill material into waters of the U.S. can have adverse impacts on wildlife habitat and on communities of fish, plants and insects. A permit is required before performing any work that results in discharges of material into rivers, lakes, streams and wetlands. Any person planning to do such work in southern Utah should contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ St. George Regulatory Office (321 North Mall Drive, Suite L-101, St. George, UT 84790; telephone, 435986-3979) before beginning work to determine if a permit is needed.
ATTENTION GARKANE MEMBERS
PLANNED POWER OUTAGES FOR GARKANE’S SOUTHERN SYSTEM April 15th & May 20th Garkane Energy will be having two pre-arranged outages in our Southern System on April 15th and May 20th. Each outage will be from 12:00 a.m. Saturday night (Midnight) until approximately 6:00 a.m Sunday Morning. These outages are necessary for the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), at Glen Canyon to do the necessary work to install a backup transformer to feed Garkane’s transmission line out of the dam. After the work has been completed, in association with these two outages, Garkane will have much better reliability out of Glen Canyon in case of a transformer malfunction or failure. This installation will provide Garkane a redundant transformer for backup at Glen Canyon. All of Kane and Garfield counties (except Antimony and Panguitch), and Northern Arizona, (except Colorado City and Hildale) will be affected. We urge all law enforcement, hospitals, telephone entities, and Churches to be aware, as these outages will run from midnight, Saturday Night (12:00 a.m.) to approximately 6:00 a.m Sunday Morning (6 hours total). During these outages Garkane crews will be out working on various projects throughout the system, that need to be accomplished, which can only be done when the power is out. We thank all of our customers for their patience and understanding during these two critical outages. Garkane reminds its members to be prepared for power outages by choosing an easily accessible closet or cupboard for an emergency supply of flashlights, batteries, and other needed items.

REBUILDING THE MARILYN BULKLEY OUTDOOR CLASSROOM
To honor Mrs. Marilyn Bulkley who passed away in December 2011, the students of Panguitch Middle and High Schools have set forth a goal to rebuild the outdoor classroom at Little Dam that Marilyn worked so hard to establish. The classroom was flooded last spring and the students would like to show their love, admiration, and respect by restoring the classroom and making additional improvements to the property. Panguitch City has agreed to allow the schools to rebuild on their property and we are grateful for their approval. To rebuild and reestablish the classroom, we are asking for help in volunteer time, donated materials, and financial assistance. A bank account is set up at Zions Bank in Panguitch in Marilyn’s name with all donations going into the classroom and for upkeep in subsequent years. We will need volunteers to help with building, reclamation, trail work, etc. The bridge and amphitheater will need to be rebuilt, the trail re-established and improved, and other improvements as determined. If you have any ideas for this project, please call one of the people listed at the bottom of this article. We are hoping this will be a county-wide project as Marilyn touched the hearts and minds of students throughout the county and the state as an educator in Garfield County School District and the Education Outreach Specialist for the Natural History Association at Bryce Canyon. The student bodies of the Panguitch schools are excited to work on this project and to honor their beloved teacher and friend. Come join in and let’s make this a great place for kids and families.

EAGLE SCOUTS HONORED ESCALANTE SCHOOLS STAFFING CHANGES I would like to inform the public of some staffing changes in Garfield School District next year. The special education teacher in Escalante, Dean Harrison, resigned on March 23 to take a position in Logan, Utah. We wish him the best of luck in his new job. The District has been advertising the special education position over the past month. To cover responsibilities for remaining school year, the District will assign the current Escalante Elementary special education responsibilities to Nathan Platt and the high school special education files to Phoebe Wiseman. These assignments will be temporary until the end of the year. The District mailed letters to the parents of the special education students in each of these
schools to inform them of these changes. The special education position remains open and we are taking applications. We will hire a new Special Education Teacher at the end of the year to cover Escalante Elementary, Escalante High School and Boulder Elementary. With many current teaching contracts ending in May and new college graduates, we feel like we could increase the applicant pool to help the District find the best applicant for this position. If you have questions relating to the staffing of the special education students in Escalante or the District, please call the District or email Chris Kupfer at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The District also received the resignation letter of Amanda Johnson,
the current math teacher in Escalante High School. We are sad to see Mrs. Johnson go, as she is an outstanding teacher who works very hard to improve the education of the students in Escalante High School. Mrs. Johnson will remain in Escalante to fill her contract year and leave after the school year is completed. The District will be filling this position will a Level 3 or Level 4 math teacher. Escalante High School will have two new staff members on their faculty next year. If you know of an individual that has the appropriate certification and would be interested in either of these two positions, please encourage them to apply. Superintendent Ben Dalton

Every1Counts Life Is About Creating Emotional Connections
By Cynthia Kimball “Over here,” said the young woman firmly to one of the passengers pointing with her hands to a certain spot. “But my luggage will be coming from here,” said one of the passengers. I said over here,” she repeated as she again pointed. “What the H - E double hockey sticks,” said the man who, like me and others, had just been delayed three hours in the prior city. “Our plane was just delayed three hours and this is what I get?” he said to the young woman. Yet, she said nothing, but worked to remain motionless –almost robot-like--staring at a wall. Each one of us was standing in the walking corridor that connects to the plane. We were waiting for our checked in bags. As I looked around at the other passengers standing there, they were rolling their eyes in disgust in how this woman treated this one passenger. Truly she could have said something like, “We are so sorry for the delay. Thank you, though, so much for your patience.” Or, “I would love for you to stand wherever you’d like, but, it is company policy that you have to stand behind this line when waiting for your bags, but I could sing you a song while you wait or tell you a joke or a story. Which one would you like?” Anything like this, to break the ice, and connect with us in some possible way would have been appreciated. It was like we were all wanting her to connect with us in some way, but she never did. But to give her the benefit of the doubt, perhaps she did not know how. Yet, I attribute that to the airlines failure in not training its employees to connect emotionally to its customers. If you are in business, you need to emotionally connect with your customers. If you are the boss of a company, you need to emotionally connect with your employees.
If you are the coach of a sports team, you need to emotionally connect with your athletes. If you are a teacher, you need to emotionally connect with your students. If you are an administrator, you need to emotionally connect to those who you lead. If you are a spouse, you need to emotionally connect to your spouse. If you are a parent, you need to emotionally connect to your children. Basically, in whatever you do, you need to be creating emotional connections. “Eventually everything connects – people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se,” said American designer, Charles Eames. Zappos.com knows how to emotionally connect with customers. As a matter of fact, that is what their Customer Loyalty Team (CLT) is empowered to do. The CLT does not have a script. They just take calls and work to connect with every employee. Their longest call to date is 8 hours and 23 minutes. No sale was made during that call. But an emotional connection was. Which is what CEO, Tony Hsieh, wants.
Namely, for every customer or potential customer, to get off the phone with a Zappos CLT member and feel great. So great that they tell someone else about their call. And if this other person buys something from Zappos great, if not, that is okay, too. Especially since Zappos believes it is more important for that potential customer to feel good about themselves, even happy, and to perhaps, spread their happiness experience to someone else; thereby adding to a happiness movement. So how do you connect with people? What will you do? Why will you do this? And did you make someone feel better by what you did or said? Ultimately, that is the key. Said American poet, Maya Angelou, “People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.” Cynthia Kimball is a professional speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC, and a doctoral student in Workforce Education Leadership.

My wife is a teacher; it’s really weird to live w i t h a teacher. I’d be on the phone, doodling on a piece of paper, leave the house, come back in two hours and that same piece of paper is now on the refrigerator with the words “Good work!” and a big smiley face on it.
Many years ago, my friend worked for a large business. It was his lifetime employment, but he wasn’t happy there. He wanted to go into business for himself. He saved his money and finally had enough so that he could quit and start his own business. A few years later, I was on vacation passing through the town where my friend’s business was located. I stopped by for a visit. I said to him, “I heard that the first year is the hardest for a new business.” “Yeah, the first year was pretty rough, but we’re doing pretty well now. In fact, I’m getting to where I only have to work half a day.” “Wow! That’s pretty nice! Maybe I should think about going into business for myself.” “Yeah, and the nicest part of it is that it doesn’t matter which twelve hours you work.”
A vessel with adult mussels attached was intercepted Wednesday at the Bullfrog Marina inspection station at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The vessel was thoroughly decontaminated by National Park Service staff and will be held in quarantine until the boat no longer poses a threat to Lake Powell or any other water body. The vessel had been moored on Lake Mead-where mussels are known to exist-before being hauled to Bullfrog. This is the first vessel with mussels intercepted prior to launching on Lake Powell this year. Invasive quagga and zebra mussels are a major threat to our quality of life. They are small, clam-like creatures that reproduce rapidly and deplete food in the water. As such, they jeopardize fish populations, damage power and water infrastructures, and decrease the health of ecosystems. As the boating season begins, visitors are reminded to prevent the spread of mussels and other aquatic invasive species by always cleaning, draining, and drying their vessels, anchors, and other equipment each time they are used. Sixteen boats harboring mussels were intercepted prior to launching on Lake Powell last year. Coming to Lake Powell with vessels and equipment properly prepared to launch will ensure every boater’s ability to get on the water more quickly. While a typical decontamination takes less than ten minutes and is offered at no cost to Glen Canyon visitors, when mussels are found, the vessel will be decontaminated and held in quarantine for up to a 30-day drying period to make sure any hidden mussels have not survived.

GETTING A PASSPORT
Before she died, an old lady wanted to visit England, the home of her ancestors. She went to the Federal Office and asked for a passport. “You must take the loyalty oath first,” the passport clerk said. “Raise your right hand, please.” The senior citizen raised her right hand as the clerk asked, “Do you swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, domestic or foreign?” The sweet old face paled and the voice trembled as she responded, “Well, I guess so, but ... will I have help, or will I have to do it all by myself?”
BOAT WITH MUSSELS INTERCEPTED
Heading down the interstate, our car passed through a huge swarm of gnats so dense that their bodies made popping noises as they hit the windshield. “I can’t get over how loud they are,” my wife said. “Well, we are hitting them at 65 miles an hour,” I pointed out. Her reply left me speechless. “There’s no way bugs can fly that fast!”

BRYCE VALLEY AREA NEWS by Vicki D. Syrett 679-8687 or firstname.lastname@example.org Hope all of you had a very nice Easter Day. The weather was great and people were happy. It is a time to remember our Savior and celebrate His gifts to us. We sent good wishes to Louise England who is in the Panguitch Hospital Garfield Memorial. Hope she is soon home and doing well. Louise has had a long hard struggle and hopes to be home soon. We want her to know we have her in our thoughts and prayers. Also in the hospital in Cedar City at the Valley View Medical Hospital is Charlie Francisco. He gets Eva Dean feeling somewhat better and then he decides it is his turn but we want him to know we would rather have him at home. He is trying to get better but this stems from and old operation that has come back to haunt him. We hope he is soon doing better and can come home where he wants to be. He is also in our thoughts and prayers. There were a lot of visitors in the area this weekend for the Easter holiday. Saw Brian and Shelly Clement with son Ian. Shelly is the daughter of Franz and Margaret Shakespear. Also spotted T.J. and Sheila Johnson here with their family. Sheila is the daughter of Rod and Kathern Syrett. I know there were many more but did not get a chance to see all of them so please call and let us know. Our son David and his wife Debbie and son Joshua came down to help us do some jobs around the house and yard that needed help with. They worked hard and helped Arthur work on
his wall in the backyard so he can get it finished. They just ran out of time so it will continue another weekend. Debbie went through all my old cookbooks and took them away because they were not being used anymore. It was nice having them here. The Lion’s Club Easter Egg hunt went very well. They had a good turnout and many kids went home happy with what they found. We thank the Lion’s Club for doing this every year for our families. It is an event that is looked forward to each year at this time. The Choir did a beautiful program in Tropic today. Merrilee Mecham and Susan Thompson were the speakers and it was very enjoyable and enlightening. Because of Spring Break last week there is not much news right now. The athletic events did not take place but coming up are the following: Golf on April 11th at Richfield, hosted by Piute HS.

LION’S CLUB 50TH ANNIVERSARY IN TROPIC Bryce Lion’s Club celebrated a 50 year anniversary on March 22nd. They became a charter club in 1962 and were sponsored by the Panguitch Lion’s Club There were 20 original charter members. Today we have three remaining charter members: J. Robert Ott, Bonnie Willis and Joseph Hughes. Bonnie Willis wasn’t an original member but her late husband, Roy Willis was and she served faithfully by his side and has continued to be a loyal Lion. Women were not Lions at the time of the original charter. Some of the accomplishments of the Bryce Lion’s Club include: The obtainment of TV to the Bryce Valley Area. They also maintained and serviced the TV system until the county took over several years ago. The Lion’s have sponsored Boys and Girls to Boy’s State and Girl’s State each year. They offer College Scholarships to seniors.

They did the remodeling on the Tropic Scout House and they helped build the new fire house in Tropic. They lobbied and pushed for Thorley’s Pasture to become Kodachrome State Park. The Lion’s built the original fire pit and picnic area at Kodachrome. Each year they also sponsor the Easter Egg hunt for the children of the Bryce Valley Area. They were responsible for the Veteran’s Memorial at the Tropic Town Park. The club also paid for the Bryce Valley High School to have their weather station built. They have also help with many other school projects as well. There are many more projects and donations, way to many to mention, that they have accomplished.
We are a dwindling group and would love to have more members. There is still room for a service club in our community. We would be at a great disadvantage without the Bryce Lion’s Club. We have awarded certificates of appreciation for service to Joe Hughes, Bob Ott and Bonnie Willis for 50 years, LaMar Le Fevre and Ethel Le Fevre for 28 years, Rick Bybee for 25 years, Anita Fletcher for 18 years, Glenna Fletcher for 18 years, Lyllian le Fevre for 8 years, Jeff Stock for 5 years, and Clint and Denise Pierson for 5 years. The Bryce Lion’s Club are a distinct asset to our area and we congratulate them on fifty years of service to the community.

FYI PANGUITCH By: Mack Oetting ~ E-mail: mackoetting @gmail.com What a glorious weekend it was, spring sure knows how to tease us along. Friday morning was the 16th annual Easter Egg hunt and it was cold as usually (LDS Conference, it snows and it’s cold for the Easter Egg hunt). Even with the kids having the week off a lot of them showed up and it was a fun time by all, a Kodak moment Saturday the weather just kept getting better and at the Car Show in Hurricane it was perfect. So many beautiful cars there, that it’s like visiting a museum, the art work is amazing. Easter Sunday was a good time to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ and renew your Faith. Someone said that they were a volunteer they did not need thanks; Wrong You are the ones who should get the thanks. So here goes. The Easter Egg Hunt was sponsored by the City and Lions Club. They paid for the prizes, candy and eggs. Many thanks to the Easter Bunny, to Laura Adams ‘s kids in the after school program for filling the eggs, To Cianna, Sierra, Kevin, Shawn and Gary for making the park Easter Hunt ready. There was an anonymous donor who put $1.00 new bills in 25 plastic eggs. It is a joy to watch the quiet service that is given to so many by so many!!!! Thank you! This is the time of year that hearts melt as well as the snow. Our Granddaughter Teah was here and we had her family from Mexico come visit us for a few days. Teah lived with them for six months to learn Spanish and teach English as a second language, the best spent time in her education. Teah has been accepted into 3 medical schools and being able to speak two languages really helped. Teah and her mother Shawn took the family skiing up at Brian Head for a fun time. Speaking of Brian Head it closes next Monday, so get you sticks or boards out for one last run. THERE WILL BE AN OPEN HOUSE AT THE HEAD START SCHOOL
TODAY APRIL 12TH. IT STARTS AT 1: OO TO 7:00pm Kayleen Mosdell is the teacher there; she has been with the Head Start program for 12 years. Mrs. Mosdell will have all the information for you on this program, there will be refreshment and prizes for the kids. This is an excellent program for preschoolers, three to five year olds are welcome, the school is four days a week and lunch is served. This Friday the 13th (hopefully not a bad day) the Drama Club will be at the State Drama in Parowan. A lot of work goes into this endeavor, with the Actors and Actresses going over and over their lines. This is fun time for the students and they enjoy performing in front of an audience. Also tonight the 12th, PHS’s Sterling Scholars will be in St. George competing for scholarships. All 12 of these Scholars will be at their best and will be competing for scholarships that will pay for their education from1 year to 4 years depending on the scholarship. The hard part of this competition is making a portfolio, however they will learn how to make a resume that will carry them throughout their lives. The Quilt Walk Festival will be starting in only two months. There have been changes, with a couple of the founders of the Festival retiring. If you want to get involved in this fun action, give Elaine Baldwin a cal at 676-2403, this activity takes a whole town to put on, but it has put Panguitch on the map. I hope you E mailed your protest on the Mammoth fish hatchery closing. Politicians tell you that if you elect them they will cut your taxes. Many people want a free ride in life, rich or poor it doesn’t matter. However we think we have to cut entitlements, a new term that has been coined by the people that own our Country to keep their taxes low. We spend a lot on taxes and I took a second to think about this and
maybe you can see who really gets the entitlements. The $6,000 we pay in State taxes pays for a half a year’s health insurance for a Legislature, the $13,000 we pay in Federal taxes pay for health insurance for one of the Supreme Court Justices. Gosh not one of these elected officials pay into their systems. You probably pay into Social Security for 50 years in your life time and Social Security is the only retirement many people have. Medicare is the same thing; you have paid for your health care. I belong to the Public Employees Retirement System in California between my employer and myself, in 30 years we paid in over $750,000 for my retirement. Oh did I say that our State Legislature if they get elected for 10 years, get life time health insurance? The Health insurance companies spent over $200 million dollars to defeat the affordable health insurance. Blue Crosses CEO made 26 million last year. The cost of Blue Cross insurance for a family of 4 is $1600 a month. A weeks stay in the hospital, if nothing is wrong with you, that you don’t have to have surgery, runs about $30,000. A friend of mine was in the hospital for pneumonia for 4 days, at a cost $20,000. They are a low income family, so you think they wouldn’t have to pay, wrong! The husband had his wages garnished, to pay for this care. If you drive a car you are forced to pay for car insurance, why shouldn’t you pay for your share of low cost health insurance? So much with my soap box, venting. Please continue E mailing about the fish Hatchery, it could help. Mack O.

SURVIVOR’S CHECKLIST AND LEGAL PROCEDURES AT DEATH
Marlene Haws Ph: 826-4859 • firstname.lastname@example.org March weather was nothing like the stories they used to tell about. It neither came in like a Lion nor out like a Lamb! But we were served up with a very bad April Fool joke. The hardest wind Escalante has seen in a long time blew all night long. Ripping rain gutters off , toppling yard decorations, garbage receptacles, scattering lattice fences and all that just at my house! It even uprooted a big tree in the field across the creek from us. So it has taken the better part of the week for everyone to gather things up again, all over town! Gloria Porter had hip surgery on April 2, in Cedar City. Bob Faulker was taken to The Garfield Memorial Hospital in Panguitch after a fall at his home. He was also diagnosed with pneumonia. Sheila would like to express their thanks to the EMT’s for their promptness and for the skill they exhibited in taking care of Bob. Also to Julie Ford and other neighbors for all their help. Relatives here in Escalante received word that their cousin, Faye Jepsen, Boulder, took a bad fall down her basement steps. She has spent time, both in Salt Lake and in Richfield with the doctors. X-rays showed she had no broken bones but is badly bruised. Her 90th birthday is tomorrow, April 13, 2012, you may want to wish her well and a “Happy Birthday, Faye!” We wish all of these folks a speedy recovery. Our condolences to the family of former resident, Robert Barker, 93, and his wife Geraldine, 93, who passed away within two days of each other. Robert on March 31, and Geraldine on April 2, 2012. Robert was born on April 2, 1919 to Robert and Dicy Barker in Escalante. Geraldine is a daughter of William and Catherine Bowles and was born Sept. 14, 1919 in Nephi, Utah. She and Robert had been married for 65 years. They are survived by three sons, Steven, Jerry and Kevin and one daughter, Karen Ann, and Robert’s brother Owen Porter and a sister Phyllis Jarrett, 14 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Funeral services were held April 7, 2012 in Bountiful, Utah. DeLane Griffin had a visit last week from his cousin, Clea Schow Barrett, her son, Brett, and his wife, Ruth, of Salt Lake City. Brett and Ruth wanted to see the town and especially wanted to see the house Clea was born in, which belonged to her grandfather, Napoleon Roundy. They were disappointed, however, when they saw the house and it didn’t look like the picture they have always had of it. The second story of the house was taken off some years ago when Napoleon’s daughter LeNora and her husband, Ray Griffin, lived in it. DeLane told Brett and Ruth that if they had put a blindfold on Clea and removed it when they got into town she probably wouldn’t have known where she was either. She hasn’t been back in a lot of years! Ryan Cottam had a lot of help and a lot of progress was made on his new house last week. Four of Tari’s brothers, the Feltners, were here to help with the tile. Tad, Tracy, Tristin, Tyler and Tyler’s two sons, Jeron and Gavin. Then of course Tari’s dad, LaMar, who has been here from the getgo, and Ryan, so they had quite the crew. Cheri Feltner came from Tropic on Thursday to help celebrate her granddaughter, McKynlee’s, birthday. Also there for the day at the home of Brent and Patrice Cottam were: Shondelle and Reggie Gillins, from Enoch, with their four boys; Nate and Elisa Ly-
man and two children, from Kanab; Two of McKynlee’s little girl cousins, Halie and Brooke Feltner, were there from Phoenix and had to wear coats most of the day because they were not used to our cold weather! McKynlee’s great grandmother, Marlene Haws, also attended the party. Harriett Priska is home after a two week road trip with Shiela Mickey. To Pasadena, Ca., Phoenix, Az. and on home. She said one of her special moments on the trip was on the South Rim of The Grand Canyon, watching movies made by the two Kolob Brothers, of trips on the Colorado River on very small boats, crossing the raging river on wires, bridges and mules, with nothing more than a lot of ingenuity and guts! She said LA traffic is not quite as dangerous, but almost! At the City Council meeting April 3, Drew Parkin told a little more about the plans that are being made for The Escalante-Boulder Marathon which is being planned for September 1, 2012. There is a lot of excitement about it and people are being very receptive to the idea. If you would like to volunteer your help, Drew and Brent Cottam would probably be glad to hear from you. A business license was approved for Justin Christensen for his plumbing business. Justin is not only a plumber but is also our new city cop. A business license was also issued to Marcie Hoffman. She owns the newly renovated building next to the Post Office. I’m not sure yet what her business is going to be. It has been rumored that part of it will be a beauty shop. Plans were approved for Chris and Tammy Christensen who will be building a new garage and shed. Josey Muse was given the go ahead to build a new fence in Moqui Gardens. Liberty Lyman was at the meeting to see about getting the water turned on at the home that was built by Mayo Roundy some years back. Our Garfield County Sherriff, Danny Perkins, was there with Highway Patrolman, Ben Cox and our new Policeman, Justin Christensen. Sherriff Perkins said Escalante will still be Sherriff Jared Dunton’s top priority. It will be good to have two law officers here to back each other up. He also said a new helicopter has been purchased for our area. This will be particularly helpful, especially with search and
rescue and trauma situations. In these economically trying times it was good news to hear also that Garfield County is pretty much debt free, at the present time. The mayor and city council expressed their thanks to the EMT’s, the fire department and search and rescue for their willingness to serve our community, and others if the need arises, and for always being ready to go at any time when an emergency presents itself. A small grant has been secured for some work on our city park. If anyone would like to volunteer some help on that please contact city council member Melanie Torgerson. FYI: Council member Greg Allen is over the airport and city storm water drainage. Council member Guy Graham is over the water. Council member Greg Hughes is over sanitation and landfill and council member Jeff Dunn is over the streets. If you are reading this early in the day….Thursday, April 12th….it isn’t too late to go get your cleaning tools and help with clean-up around town. Another clean up project is planned for May 1st through May 5th. Get your lots all cleaned and, if you have anything you want hauled off, the city employees will pick them up with their trucks and loader. This is for things that have to go to the city dump, not things that go to the garbage receptacles. You can haul that off yourselves.They do ask that you separate tree limbs into a separate pile, large kitchen appliances, etc. in a separate pile, etc. and if you have questions call the city office for answers. 8264644. The Easter Egg Hunt, last Saturday, turned out great. Parents thought it was well organized, the kids had fun having their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny and there were LOTS of eggs to be found. Thanks to Magen Richins Carlisle and Lori S. Porter for spearheading it and thanks also to all who contributed money or volunteered their help in any other way. Martha Schow had her daughter’s family here from Scipio for the Easter weekend. Melonie and Dale Robins and their family. We hope Martha will be well enough now to be on her own for a while. She will have to be careful with a knee that has been giving her trouble, but we’re glad to see her back home.
WEPPNERS MEET WITH HATCH AND HERBERT
One of the greatest challenges in this life is the loss of a loved one. Unfortunately, in addition to the terrible, emotional strain associated with this loss, there are many legal issues that must be addressed. This article attempts to provide a brief checklist of some of the legal issues that should be addressed upon the passing of a loved one. Legal Documents: Determine whether the deceased left a will, trust or other documents to take effect upon death. Whether there is a will or trust will effect how the estate administration should proceed. If there is no will or trust, state laws will govern the administration process. It should be noted that powers of attorney that may have been used while the decedent was alive terminate upon death.
Individuals Cared for by the Deceased: Minor children or incapacitated adults that were being cared for by the deceased must have someone else appointed to take care of their needs. Usually, a court will appoint a guardian and/or conservator for the minor or incapacitated adult. This person can be designated in the deceased’s will. Inventory of Assets: It is very important to locate all of the deceased’s assets and ensure that they are protected and sufficiently insured. Secure and inventory family heirlooms, antiques and other personal property items of value. If the deceased lived alone, it may be wise to promptly change the locks on the home. In doing an inventory of the assets, it is helpful to take photos or videos. Payment of Creditors: Determine that there are sufficient assets in the estate to cover funeral expenses and other debts before paying any bills. If some creditors are paid and it is later determined that there are insufficient assets
to pay others, there can be problems. Social Security: Contact the social security office to determine what benefit, if any, may be available for the surviving spouse and/or minor children. Tax Returns: Often, state and federal tax returns including the deceased’s final 1040 income tax return, and the estate or trust’s 1041 income tax return must be prepared. The preceding is a brief list of some of the items that should be considered upon a loved one’s death. Although proper estate planning can do much to minimize and help simplify procedures at death, there are legal issues that must be addressed when a loved one dies. An estate plan that addresses and minimizes these legal issues is truly a wonderful gift for those that are left behind. Jeffery J.

Bill and Margie Weppner traveled to Cedar City on Saturday and met with an old family friend, Senator Orrin Hatch. The Weppner’s and the Hatch’s trace their connections back to living in the same community (Mt. Lebanon) outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Orrin’s father, Jesse Hatch, had blessed all the children in Margie’s family there (Pittsburgh Branch of the West Pennsylvania District). Bill and Orrin had a chance to reminisce about growing up and being educated in the same suburb of Pittsburgh. Governor Herbert was also there, so the Weppner’s, Senator Hatch and Governor Herbert had a chance to discuss public land access issues and the concern about the proposal to plant more beavers in the Escalante mountains to further limit access and grazing rights. Everyone enjoyed hamburgers and fries at Brad’s Drive In. Bill & Margie Weppner

SANDRA HANSEN VAN DYKE
Sandra Hansen Van Dyke, wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away at home in Duchesne, UT on April 4, 2012 from complications caused by cancer; she was 68 years old. Sandra was born July 25, 1943 in Ogden, UT to Orvel and Orla Hansen. She grew up on the family farm in Warren, Utah for the first 21 years of her life. This gave her a love for the land and work. Her greatest career and joy was the role of wife, mother, and grandmother, which she made her full-time occupation. She enjoyed quietly giving service to family, church, and the community. The gospel of Jesus Christ was her foundation and from that she and her husband, Laroy built a good life. They were married in the LDS Logan Temple for time and all eternity on March 4, 1965. She and Laroy served three missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, two to Russia and one to Ukraine. She is survived by her husband, her mother Orla Hansen, her children: David (Charlene) Van Dyke, Teasdale, UT; Elizabeth (Chris) Jensen, Cedar Hills, UT; Keith (Lisa) Van Dyke, Kaysville, UT; LaDawn (Gordon) Moon, Duchesne, UT; Heidi (Kevin) Matis, Indianapolis, IN; Shirley (Daniel) George, Novi, MI; Caleen (James) Pickett, Kingman, AZ; 28 grandchildren, and siblings Larry (Barbara) Hansen, Douglas (Carolyn) Hansen, Paula (Greg) Brashier, and Karen (Kent) Tucker.

RILDA ANNETTE BECKSTROM
Panguitch, Utah Our beloved mother, grandma and great grandma, Rilda Annette Veater Beckstrom, 77, of Panguitch, passed away April 5, 2012 in St. George after battling hard against complications from surgery. She is happily reunited with her eternal companion, parents, brothers, sisters and other loved ones. She was born July 21, 1934 in Spry, Utah to James LeRoy and Preelie Pearl Ruby Veater, the 7th of 8 children. She married her High School sweetheart Gordon M. Beckstrom in the St. George Temple on June 20, 1952. He preceded her in death on May 2, 2000. Annette grew up on the “ranch” along the Sevier River where she did her share of the chores and developed a love of the outdoors. After marrying Gordon they moved to San Diego, California to raise a family. She had five children whom she loved with all her heart and was the best mother anybody could ever have. Her heart was also filled with love for all 38 of her grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren. She sacrificed much for her family and was always there for all their needs, activities and special events. She loved spending as much time as possible with her family. Annette and Gordon loved to go camping where they could take jeep rides through the mountains, fishing, pine nut picking and relaxing around the campfire. They returned to Panguitch to live in 1996 and she enjoyed living at “home” again. Annette was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She always had a strong testimony of the gospel and served in many callings. She was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and loved her pioneer heritage. She never had a negative thought about others and was the most caring, kind and forgiving person and the best example of unconditional love. Annette is survived by her children: Shirley (Mike Brown), Carlson, St. George; Stanley (Nancy) Beckstrom, Cedar City; Clayton (Helen) Beckstrom, Cedar City; Michael (Rebecka) Beckstrom, Murrieta, CA; Kenneth (Denise) Beckstrom, Georgetown, TX; and siblings: Wayne Veater, Sandy; and LaPreal Pearl (Royce) Walker, Panguitch.

Patrick Mathew Lindsay passed away on April 4, 2012 after a great 87 years of life. Pat was born on December 22, 1924 in Beaver, UT to Charles & Cora Briggs Lindsay. He was the last surviving of 9 children. Patrick attended Beaver High School and was elected Student Body President his Senior Year, 1943. He excelled at sports and was the high school quarterback, a varsity basketball player, and track star (high jumper, pole vaulter, & sprinter). After high school he worked a short time at MGM Studios in Beverly Hills, CA. Shortly after graduation, Pat was drafted in the Army and served his country in WWII. He served in the South Pacific with the 40th Combat Division and later with the 745th Military Police on the Hawaiian Islands. Upon returning, he attended his first year of college at BYU. On July 13, 1948, Pat married Lola Louise Gale from Beaver, UT. Pat attended Branch Agricultural College (SUU) that fall, then finished his schooling at Utah State University, where he earned a Bachelor’s & a Master’s Degree in English. Patrick was a high school teacher in Utah for over 20 years. He taught at Kanab, Panguitch, & spent 17 years at Beaver High. He taught English, history, math, physiology and coached football, basketball, track and wrestling. He also worked a short time for Geneva/ U.S. Steel at the Cedar City Iron Mines.

TORREY NEWS Like a mixed garden salad a community is the sum of all of its parts, and when a community gathers together for a good cause those individual parts make a whole lot wonderful things happen. That was the just case at the Café Diablo on 7 April, where so many people showed up to a benefit for Donna Sal that highway 24 became a parking lot. Wayne County’s Deputy Parker Do-Little was so overwhelmed at the sight that he just sat in his car and didn’t flash his red and blue lights once. The charity and auction event was held to help pay accrued medical expenses. If you were able to find a parking spot within a half a mile radius of the Diablo and you attended the event, you were witness to a community pouring out its heart and digging deep into their wallets. Gary Pankow of Café Diablo, donated all proceeds from the lunch and many local businesses, artists and good friends donated everything from scenic flights, gravel, Hawaiian Coffee straight form the island, art work, hand knitted hats and booties, a handmade aspen bed, quilts, and a bee hive from Barry in Colorado. Amy’s Hawaiian coffee was a huge hit, as was Barry’s bee hive, both of which brought out some personalities that I have not seen before in some folks I thought I knew well. Steveo had such affection for some items that it was rumored he was guarding them like a new mother hen, his name appeared on so many items that by the time the bidding was com-
plete Steveo was frazzled. When Judy Teasdale called out Monica’s name, Monica thought she won a new car, only to quickly realize it was just her imagination or maybe too much sun. Bob Poulton’s braided rawhide quirt was something else that raised some eyebrows. Nan Anderson was eyeing it pretty hard but it was Dav Worthington that kicked off the bid for that piece of horse equipment but I don’t think he has a horse, neither does Nan (maybe she was gonna take it with her to spin class at the Power Plant). The entire event was an all out success. It takes dedicated and special individuals (and you know who you are) to pull it off but it takes a community to make it happen. Thanks everyone for your giving, participation and friendship. The annual Capitol Reef Natural History Association Easter Egg hunt was again a huge success. Unlike reports from some larger cities and towns around the USA the CRNHA Easter Egg hunt had no police reports of out of control parents or was protective headgear required. Everyone had a great time. Easter weekend also filled the highways and parking lots of local eateries, if you weren’t hauling four-wheelers, ATV’s or smelled of camp-fire smoke and had dirt on your face you were out of place. Sunday afternoon was like a parting of the seas from the “Ten Commandments” and a mass exodus took place in the afternoon. Some locals had such a tough time getting out onto the highway
that they just stayed home eating brightly colored Easter eggs and more candy than they are generally used to. Asparagus hunters were also on the prowl in and around Torrey as well as throughout Wayne County. They can be seen searching newly burned ditches and fence lines for the succulent spring delicacy that pop up this time of year and is as good for breakfast as it is for supper. Avid asparagus hunters/consumers are easily spotted; they are the ones with 1 million watt spot lights on their outfits driving slowly through rural neighborhoods in the evenings, late at night or early mornings in search of nature’s bounty. If you have seen Scott Chesnut out prowling around, you know you are too late. Just a little Torrey history, in 1980 Nell Gifford, wife of Dewey Gifford, daughter of Jorgan Jorgerson and Annie Peterson of Calavasa, Mexico and mother of Twilla Madsen
September August April 23, 20, 12, 2010 2009 2012 Adus F. Dorsey II
was out gathering asparagus one evening for supper and got hung up in a fence line and died. It was a sad event and deeply affected the community of Torrey. Dewey and Nell were and always will be remembered as some of Torrey Town’s most influential residents. Work continues on the Torrey Cemetery rock wall, downtown stump removal, tree planting and other Torrey Town clean up projects. As spring clean up projects continue the public and those hauling construction debris are ask to cover dump loads in an attempt to keep Torrey debris free. Canal and ditch debris is to be removed from Torrey Town right of ways by the ditch users as established by a 2009 Torrey Town Ordinance. At the expense to Torrey Town residents Torrey Town has cleared public right of ways of debris in an active attempt to “keep our town clean”. Your dedicated assistance in removing your ditch related debris is required.
Pick up your trash. Torrey is a proud gateway town to Capitol Reef National Park and point’s East, West and south over Boulder Mountain show your pride. The outstanding reward for any information con-
nected to the “Keystone Light Beer Litterbug” is still pending. Anonymous reports are beginning to pour in. Cabella’s trail cams have been strategically placed in locations in hopes of capturing evidence.

NEW MAP TO HELP MOTORISTS STAY ON DESIGNATED ROUTES WHEN ON PUBLIC LANDS
Some outdoor enthusiasts may not know the destruction they can cause to the delicate ecosystem of Southern Utah. But that’s exactly what happens when people travel cross country on motorized vehicles. To minimize this impact, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kanab Field Office has created a map of public lands that designates routes that motorists can use and areas that are restricted. The map also provides information about other recreational activities. Motorists may be tempted to go cross country in their search for antlers that were dropped by deer or elk over the winter. But doing so can impact soils, vegetation, riparian areas and wildlife—the very elements that help deer and elk to thrive in Southern Utah. “When people travel cross-country with their motorized vehicles, they can inadvertently cause harm to the habitat of wildlife. This damage can create problems for deer and elk during a critical time period when they are stressed foraging for food in the winter months and especially, when they are dropping antlers” said Lisa Church, wildlife biologist for the BLM Kanab Field Office. Public land users are encouraged to pick up the map at the BLM Kanab Field Considering he wrote The Chronicles of Narnia, one of Office, 669 South Highway the most popular collections of children’s literature of all 89A, Kanab, from 8-4:30 time, it’s no real surprise that C. S. Lewis received thouMonday-Friday. Questions sands of letters from youngsters during his career. can be directed to Misti What’s admirable is that he attempted to reply Haines at (435)644-1282. to each and every one of those pieces of fan mail, and not just with a generic, impersonal line or two. The fantastic letter seen below is a perfect example. It was sent by Lewis to a young American fan named Joan Lancaster in June of 1956 — just a few months before the seventh and final book of the series, The Last Battle, was published — and is actually an invaluable, generous response filled with practical writing advice, all of which still rings true. Source: The wonderful, C. S. Lewis’ Letters to Children. The Kilns, Headington Quarry, Oxford - 26 June 1956 Dear Joan– Thanks for your letter of the 3rd. You describe your Wonderful Night v. well. That is, you describe the place and the people and the night and the feeling of it all, very well — but not the thing itself — the setting but not the jewel. And no wonder! Wordsworth often does just the same. His Prelude (you’re bound to read it about 10 years hence. Don’t try it now, or you’ll only spoil it for later reading) is full of moments in which everything except the thing itself is described. If you become a writer you’ll be trying to describe the thing all your life: and lucky if, out of dozens of books,one or two sentences, just for a moment, come near to getting it across. About amn’t I, aren’t I and am I not, of course there are no right or wrong answers about languagein the sense in which there are right and wrong answers in Arithmetic. “Good English” is whatever educated people talk; so that what is good in oneplace or time would not be so in another. Amn’t I was good 50 years ago in the North of Ireland where I was brought up, but bad in Southern England. Aren’t I would have been hideously bad in Ireland but very good in England. And of course I just don’t know which (if either) is good in modern Florida. Don’t take any notice of teachers and text-books in such matters. Nor of logic. It is good to say “more than one passenger was hurt,” although more than one equals at least two and therefore logically the verb ought to be plural were not singular was! What really matters is:– 1. Always try to use the language so as to make quite clear what you mean and make sure your sentence couldn’t mean anything else. 2. Always prefer the plain direct word to the long, vague one. Don’t implement promises, but keep them. 3. Never use abstract nouns when concrete ones will do. If you mean “More people died” don’t say “Mortality rose.” 4. In writing. Don’t use adjectives which merely tell us how you want us to feel about the thing you are describing. I mean, instead of telling us a thing was “terrible,” describe it so that we’ll be terrified. Don’t say it was “delightful”; make us say “delightful” when we’ve read the description. You see, all those words (horrifying, wonderful, hideous, exquisite) are only like saying to your readers, “Please will you do my job for me.” 5. Don’t use words too big for the subject. Don’t say “infinitely” when you mean “very”; otherwise you’ll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. Thanks for the photos. You and Aslan both lookv. well. I hope you’ll like your new home. With love yours C.S. Lewis
