Still Time to Hunt Turkeys in Utah
UTAH - If you've been itching to hunt turkeys in Utah's backcountry this spring, but you haven't made it out yet, there's still time to buy a permit and head afield. Utah's general statewide turkey hunt runs until May 31. Hunting permits are available until the hunt ends. Jason Robinson, upland game coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says hunters are reporting good success this season. "The weather has been up and down, though," Robinson
says, "making it a bit harder to pattern birds. We've had snow and extra warm temperatures, all in the same week." Robinson encourages you to spend a lot of time looking for birds. "If you don't see turkey sign or hear birds," he says, "keep moving. Turkeys move around a lot this time of year. Be prepared to go where the birds are." If you hear a gobble, Robinson encourages you to work that bird immediately.

Zinke and Alexander: How to Protect America's 'Best Idea' by the Department of the Interior
In 2017, over 330 million visitors traveled to see the memorials and monuments across our great nation. Every American should be able to enjoy our treasured parks, but heavy traffic and aging infrastructure are taking a toll on America's system of 417 National Park Service sites. Bluntly, our parks are being loved to death and it's time to invest in restoring and preserving them for future generations. Writer and conservationist Wallace Stegner rightly called national parks America's "best idea," but neglect in infrastructure funding has resulted in our trails being eroded, visitor amenities being diminished and campgrounds being closed. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which attracted 11 million visitors last year, has a $215 million deferred maintenance backlog. In 2013, the park had to close its Look Rock campground and picnic area due to funding shortfalls in replacing the water treatment facilities. The total deferred maintenance bill for all national park sites is four times the annual congressional appropriation.
The good news is that this year, we have a proposal in Congress that could tackle most, if not all, of that $11.6 billion backlog over the next 10 years. The proposal, from a bipartisan coalition of senators and representatives, has the backing of President Donald J. Trump. Senators Angus King, I-Maine; Steve Daines, R-Montana; Martin Heinrich, D-New Mexico; Shelley Moore Capito, R-West Virginia; Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia; Cory Gardner, RColorado; and Thom Tillis, R-North Carolina; along with representatives Mike Simpson, R-Idaho; Kurt Schrader, D-Oregon; Rob Bishop, RUtah; Colleen Hanabusa, DHawaii; Will Hurd, R-Texas; and John Garamendi, D-California, are supporting the bill. This is personal for the two of us. We have visited the Great Smoky Mountains together twice — once for the National Park Service's 101st birthday in 2017 and again this year during National Park Week — both times gleaning a new sense of purpose from witnessing firsthand the critical need for infrastructure improvements in our park system.

PANGUITCH - Local resident and dancer with the “Mesquite-Toes” Bobbi Bryant decided it would be great to combine the talents of the Express Dance Studio of Panguitch with the talents of “The Mesquite-Toes” and initiated the invitation for them to participate in this year’s annual Spring Spectacular “Travel the U.S.A. the Mesquite-Toes Way”. Express Dance Studio, ages 3 to 17, under the direction of Elkee Stewart performed with The MesquiteToes at the Virgin Valley Community Theater in Mesquite, Nevada on April 20th and 21st. The Mesquite-Toes is a non-profit organization directed by Judy Edging-
ton and is open to men and women ages 40 and up. The average age is 75 with current dancers ages 47 to 84. This organization performs tap, clogging and jazz which is an excellent and fun way for the participants to exer-
cise, remain flexible and stay young at heart. The girls of Express Dance Studio performed solo and duet numbers. The participants were Bella Crofts, Piper Orton, Cloee Orton, Gracie Tebbs, Kieran
Mooney, Josslyn Griffin, Addison Wright and Kambree Howell. These young girls enjoyed the invitation to perform and appreciated Mesquite-Toes Cont'd on page 7
Livestock Grazing and Trailing Management Planning Process for Capitol Reef National Park CAPITOL REEF - Background Livestock grazing and trailing, which has a long history in southern Utah, were recognized by Congress in the enabling legislation for Capitol Reef National Park (CRNP) as existing privileges for those who traditionally grazed cattle
in or trailed cattle through the park. For several decades after the park was established, the National Park Service (NPS) relied on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the management and permitting of livestock grazing in the active allotments in CRNP. However, between 2000
Harriet Priska , Owner of Serenidad Gallery, to Exhibit Work at Red Canyon Visitor Center
and 2010, Capitol Reef assumed responsibility for managing and permitting the two active allotments in the park, the Sandy 3 and the Hartnet (note: the BLM maintained responsibility for the portion of the Hartnet Allotment that occurs on the lands they manage). In addition, the NPS continues to manage eight traditional livestock trailing routes that are used in CRNP; six of these trails are used once or twice per year, while the other two trailing routes are only used periodically. While the NPS has had sole responsibility for managing livestock grazing and trailing in CRNP since 2010, there is no comprehensive, collaborative approach for managing these uses on park Livestock

lands. As a result, three years ago, in March of 2015, the NPS announced its intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the LGTMP. Public involvement in the LGTMP process began with an early scoping period which lasted from March 10 to May 15, 2015. Since that time, the NPS has been developing a Draft LGTMP EIS taking into account public comments received; input from our cooperating agencies, including
Emery, Garfield, and Wayne Counties (UT), the State of Utah Public Lands Policy Coordinating Office, the Bureau of Land Management, and the US Forest Service; and input from consulting agencies, including the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Where are we today? In late 2017/early 2018, the Hartnet Allotment grazing permit holder entered into discussions with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) to sell their permit to graze on the portion of the Hartnet Allotment that occurs within the boundaries of CRNP. In
March 2018, the permit holder willingly sold their NPS Hartnet Allotment grazing permit to NWF; subsequently, the permit holder relinquished in writing their rights to graze livestock in CRNP. The permit holder retains the right to trail their cattle through CRNP to reach BLM allotments immediately east of CRNP. While grazing will no longer occur in the Hartnet Allotment within the park, the NPS is continuing with preparation of the LGTMP to address long-term management and permitting of grazing on the Sandy 3 Allotment and trailing throughout
Using Mindfulness in Your Relationship by GaeLynn Peterson USU Extension Wayne County
It seems like “mindfulness” is the new buzzword today. Mindfulness is being mentally and emotionally present of what is happening around you at the moment. It includes being aware of what you are thinking, feeling and what is happening to you physically. Mindfulness can increase the joy in relationships as well. Here are several ways shared by USU Associate Naomi Brower to increase mindfulness in a relationship: • Prioritize time with your spouse. In order for us to connect and be mindful of our partner, we need to have time together. Make your spouse a priority and give him or her your undivided attention, even if it
is for 10 minutes every day to check in with them about their day. No TV. No phones. No books. Just each other. • Show affection. Let your partner know that you are mindful of them by showing your love daily through affection. Hold hands, give a lingering full-body hug or a five-second kiss. • Play together. Have fun together and try new things. Show that you are mindful of your partner by trying things that he/she enjoys doing. • Express appreciation and compliments. Show your partner that you are aware of him or her by sharing genuine compliments and words of appreciation daily.
• Continually learn about each other. Take time to ask openended questions so you can know about what is really going on in their world. The more mindful you are of each other’s hopes, dreams and challenges, the more of a support you can be to each other. • Service. Show your partner that you are mindful of him or her by helping ease their load through small acts of service. Even little things like getting up with the kids, making dinner, or doing a chore you normally don’t do can make a huge difference. Increase the joy in your relationships by being mindful some small acts throughout the day!
CRNP. The LGTMP would incorporate widely accepted management techniques such as pasture rotation, fencing, monitoring, and adaptive management to balance grazing and trailing with available forage, improve rangeland health, and meet requirements of the NPS Organic Act and Endangered Species Act. Based on public and agency scoping, as well as the analysis conducted to date of the tools proposed, implementation of the LGTMP on the remaining allotment and trails throughout the park would not have significant impacts; therefore, we are terminating the EIS, and are instead moving forward with the preparation of an environmental assessment (EA) for the LGTMP. What are the next steps? The NPS will work with cooperating and consulting agencies noted previously to prepare the LGTMP EA. We expect to release the EA for a 30-day public review period in the Summer of 2018. We will notify you when the LGTMP EA is available, and will provide information about public meetings at that time. The NPS anticipates a final decision will be made by the Fall of 2018. Please continue to visit http://parkplanning.nps. gov/care_lgtmp for the latest information regarding the LGTMP EA. Thank you for your continued interest in Capitol Reef National Park. We look forward to hearing from you when we release the EA, and hope to see you at one of the public meetings we will hold during the public comment period. —NPS

WAYNE COUNTY FARMERS MARKET
On April 11, 2018 I sent the letter below to the three Wayne County Commissioners. It is now a month later and I have received no reply. To my mind this is an odd way of dealing with a constituent — triply odd in this case because not one of the three was polite enough to acknowledge receiving the letter. Now, it seems to me that there are only three possible ways to read the situation. Number one would be that the the Commissioners are considering a way — or ways — in which to implement the idea of instituting a prayer before their meetings that would be given by people of differing beliefs and simply forgot to respond that the matter was being dealt with. Number two would be that the Commissioners think the idea of giving all religious persuasions equal opportunity to offer a prayer before their meetings to be ridiculous and not worthy of their consideration. Number three would be that the Commissioners — who all know me from my comments at several of their meetings — don’t wish to deal with me (rather than with the issue). I bring this matter to the attention of other Wayne County citizens because I think that they should be aware of the way that their Commissioners act when confronted with something that most people would call a reasonable request. I hope that when these other Wayne County citizens have a matter that they bring before the Commissioners they are not met with such a pregnant silence. All the same, however, I suggest that they might want to prepare for such an eventuality. Dear Commissioners Blackburn, Harward, and Wood, I am sure that you are all aware of the 2013 Supreme Court decision in the case of Town of Greece v. Galloway concerning prayer before public meetings. It was, as you must also know, a 5-4 decision, showing the close division of views on this important matter. And I would assume residents of Utah would be keenly aware of the history of religious discrimination at some times in some parts of the United States — particularly against members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I bring this matter to your attention because it has become apparent to me that with changing times and changing demographics we in Wayne County have been lucky enough to have welcomed people of many faiths to live among us in this beautiful and kind place. In addition to Christians we now have people of the Buddhist, Jewish, Moslem and Hindu faiths. Perhaps even others. And perhaps non-belivers as well. I believe that these citizens and taxpayers might have feelings of disenfranchisement when, as taxpayers and citizens, they only experience meeting prayers being addressed “in the name of Jesus Christ,” to quote Mr. Harward. In the Supreme Court decision mentioned above, Justice Elena Kagan’s commented: "So month in and month out for over a decade, prayers steeped in only one faith, addressed toward members of the public, commenced meetings to discuss local affairs and distribute government benefits. In my view, that practice does not square with the First Amendment’s promise that every citizen, irrespective of her religion, owns an equal share in her government.” As Justice Kagan went on to say, providing equal treatment would be easy: council members could tell the chaplains that the prayers should be non-denominational, or they could have invited clergy from all different faiths to give the prayers, rather than focusing almost exclusively on Christian ministers. Since we do not have clergy other than Christian in our county, I was wondering if you have ever given thought to opening up the meeting prayers to members of the general public? Perhaps instead of one of the Commissioners giving the prayer at a meeting, we might have a Hindu or Moslem Wayne County citizen given the invocation. I imagine it would be quite instructive and educational, and it would show both the goodwill and inclusiveness of our community. I know we all try to live in harmony with our neighbors and I believe that — in addition to being an educational opportunity — such a measure of outreach could add to that harmony I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the matter.

Wayne High School, The Glory Days by Adus F. Dorsey II
Once again, it is that time of year when teenagers walk around the kitchen in the mornings with that deer in the headlight look on their face, realizing that they have more years of school behind themselves than they will ever have left in front of
worldly belongings, which could fit into a single suitcase, the two teachers climbed into a wagon and were brought back to Wayne County. At first the high school did not receive the expected attendance results they desired, and in the fall of 1913 the school opened with
Wayne County High opened in 1913 with only about 13 students. This year marks the 100th senior class. them. And each day in May, they come home from school to find growing piles of cardboard boxes stacked by their bedroom door, and begin to notice a rather curious look on their parents suspiciously smiling faces that reminds them that somehow the folks know something they don’t. It’s that time of year when a whole generation of 17 year olds finally realize that something’s up, and life as they knew it, will never be the same. It was in 1910 that the people of Wayne County started having visions of high school diplomas hanging on their parlor wall and began to seriously consider the possibility of creating a high school in Wayne County. Mosiah Hall, the Utah Sate High School Inspector, determined a high school could be organized in Wayne County with approximately fifty students, but it would not be economical to maintain for less than eighty. In 1911 a survey of high school age students in Wayne County indicated that the requirement for a high school could be met. As with any important decision of the sort, the next question to be answered was where to locate the school? And not surprisingly the people of Wayne County became divided on where the high school building would be built. The lower part of the county favored Thurber as a central location, while the folks in Loa were of the mind that since Loa had a larger population the new school should be located there. On the 1913 Wayne County ballot, a proposition was put to the people for a vote; once the votes were tallied, the town of Thurber was decidedly the winning location. With the advent of a new school, the Wayne School District was going to need some teachers, so off the school Superintendent went to Salt Lake City and, on the recommendation of Inspector Hall , two teachers were found and hired. With all their
only about thirty students. The population of Thurber nearly doubled over night once the high school opened. Due to distance, renting a room and room a board was a necessity in 1913 and as it was up to students to find transportation to and from school. There was much enthusiasm at first, but as the first year passed, many students dropped out and at the end of the first year there were only thirteen girls left. Low enrolment ensued for several years after. In 1917, former Wayne County resident Joseph Hickman finished his studies at Utah State Agricultural College and returned to Wayne County to assume the duties of Wayne School district superintendent and principal of the high school. With student attendance dismal and Mr. Hickman understanding the conditions in Wayne County, he was able to devise a way to stir up some school spirit and eventually increase classroom sizes. In April of 1918 the first graduating class consisted of three high school seniors, Alfred R, Torgerson, Blanche Smith and Neil Williams. One of Wayne High’s first graduates was to have said that forming a basketball team in 1915-16 probably encouraged enrollment and registration of boys and helped keep them in school. Undoubtedly athletics have been an inducement for the attendance of boys at high school during all the years of Wayne High’s existence. As a predominantly agricultural community, in 1919 the Board of Education authorized the building of a shop for blacksmithing and farm mechanics. A local no nonsense kind of guy, J. Will Ivie was hired to teach the class. It didn’t take long for school officials to realize that to increase attendance, free transportation was going to be needed, so the board motioned to purchase an old truck and add some seats to pick up students from the upper towns. Since Mr. Ivie was the only one that knew how to work on the thing, it was decided he
should be the driver. It wasn’t until 1925 that free school transportation was provided, by 1929 two regular school busses were in operation at which time student numbers increased and by 1936 another bus was added to the fleet. It was in 1920 that the Board of Education set aside $5,000.00 to begin construction on a four room high school building. In May of that year another $2,000.00 was put in the bank for the rock work. As was a custom at the time the people of Bicknell were asked to contribute money and labor to the school project. In May of 1927, George T. Eckersley instructed the Board of Education that the LDS church would supply a seminary teacher in connection with the high school if the district would furnish a building for the purpose. The Thurber Ward Relief Society offered their hall for seminary classes until a building could be erected. Seminary classes opened in the fall of 1927 with James DeBry as the first teacher. District records indicate that Mr. and Mrs. Sproul, the most musically inclined couple in the county, wrote the now famous words for the Wayne High School song and Mr. W.E. Neilson, a self taught piano player, adapted the music to it. Wayne High has had a long and proud school history; throughout Wayne High School's graduating ranks nearly every profession has been well represented. 2018 marks 100 years since Wayne High School’s first graduating class, Congratulations Wayne High School Graduating Seniors Class of 2018 • Stanley Alvey • Kaelee Barton • Sierra Blackburn • Akasha Bown • Hunter Brian • Jentry Brian • Kindy Brown • Tyler Chappell • Luke Dahl • Parker Davis • Samantha Elmer • Braden Erickson • Lauren Evans • Aurora Gregory • Kamryn Hakala • Mckenzie Ivie • Jay Jackson • Kenadie Leavitt • Barlow Pace • Paden Peterson • Konner Pickup • Kate Reese • Destiny Saunders • Lucas Smith • Haylee Snedeger • Kristen Stephenson • Logan Stevens • Britton Taylor • Calvert Taylor • Colby Taylor • Chance Wells • Rebecca White • Trena Wilson • Shelton Winchell Reference; Anne Snow / Wayne High School, administrative history

Summer of Learning at SUU CEDAR CITY - Make your summer meaningful with new community classes from Southern Utah University tailored to fit everybody’s needs. SUU’s Community Education program is now accepting registrations for their summer session of classes designed to be fun, educational and affordable, as well as bringing more social opportunities to southern Utah residents. SUU Community Education is offering some exciting new summer classes such as Dutch oven cooking, Bard to Ballet, alcohol ink painting, basket weaving, summer parenting fun without technology, hiking Southern Utah forests, financial strategies for retirement, yoga and meditation, and cake decorating, among others. Most community educa-
tion summer classes are designed to be one-day, or short-term, giving participants many options to fit their busy summer schedules, said SUU Community Education Director Melynda Thorpe. “Our goal is to provide members of the community with opportunities to develop new hobbies and skills,” Thorpe said. “This summer, we’re bringing even more of the classes that the community suggested to us.” More than 200 residents enrolled in SUU Community Education’s inaugural spring session in classes such as the Southern Utah Chef cooking class, social dancing, photography and Adobe Creative Cloud. Social dance instructor Toni Sage, director of student success at SUU, became involved in a dance club with her husband James, associate pro-
vost at SUU, several years ago. Since then, they found dancing is a great way to meet new people in the community so they began teaching dance in several different styles. “We have taught dance classes for faculty at SUU for four years,” Toni Sage said. “Our first community class with SUU Community Education was an exciting opportunity to share that experience with others in the community — everybody had a lot of fun.” Summer classes begin May 9 and run through August.

Social Factors Impact Kids' Self Control, Study Says
SALT LAKE CITY - Self-control is critical to developing healthy adult behaviors, and researchers studying willpower in children say how kids want to be perceived by peers may be just as influential as a child's natural traits or abilities. Using the classic "marshmallow test" that allows children given one marshmallow to eat it immediately or wait until a second marshmallow is provided, researchers found that kids who wanted approval from their social group were more likely to exercise self-control when deciding whether or not to eat the marshmallow. Researcher Sabine Doebel at the University of Colo-
rado says it's similar to when adults decide to lose weight or quit smoking and find they're more likely to succeed if they hang around with a group of friends trying to achieve the same goal. "So what we found is that when children were told that their group waited for two marshmallows, they themselves were able to wait longer," she notes. The study included 100 preschoolers between the ages of three and five. Doebel says the findings are important because they show that selfcontrol isn't just about abilities or something that you have or don't have. She says learning to practice self-control in key devel-
opmental years is important because it strengthens neural connections associated with the skill and makes it easier to practice throughout life. "We study self-control because it's just so important in our lives," she says. "Whether or not we're going to eat that second piece of cake, whether or not we're going to study hard for that exam, it comes in everywhere in our lives and so it's important to understand how it develops." Doebel says the study's findings run counter to prevailing assumptions that selfcontrol is shaped by nature, and instead shows it can also be cultivated in children and even adults. —Utah News Connection
UTAH - Yesterday, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America announced that beginning in 2020, the Church will no longer charter Scouting units because they will be launching a new program that meets the needs of their increasingly global membership. Both organizations have released statements regarding the change, expressing gratitude for the century-old partnership (see scoutingnewsroom. org and mormonnewsroom. org). In the Utah National Parks Council, this will impact us significantly. We are fully committed to the tens of thousands of Scout leaders who have served and continue to serve in Churchsponsored Scouting units. In
the transition through 2020, the BSA has already committed to dedicating resources and support to help ensure Scouting programs continue to help young people learn leadership, develop character, and grow closer to God. We also look forward to our future opportunities to work with community partners to further the mission of the Boy Scouts of America in Utah. For those LDS and non-LDS youth currently registered in Church-sponsored units who wish to continue in the program, we will ensure a smooth transition into community-sponsored units in 2020. For the past several years, we have made our camps more available to youth in the area who are not involved in traditional year-round Scouting
units. This has given more youth than ever, including young women, the opportunity to have meaningful experiences in the outdoors. Our camps will continue to be available for use by LDS youth groups who wish to take advantage of our facilities for their future outdoor program needs. —Utah National Parks Council
SALT LAKE CITY After-school programs are boosting academic performance for Utah students living below the federal poverty level, according to a new study by the Utah Education Policy Center. After participating in music, sporting or other organized activities for one to three years, kids made significant gains in language arts, math and science scores. Tracy Gruber, senior advisor at the Intergenerational Poverty Initiative of the state's Department of Workforce Services, says academic success is critical for increasing opportunities for students once they leave school and enter the workforce. "Kids who are participating in these programs can have opportunities to learn how to play violin or participate in a sporting activity," says Gruber, "and they're also being supported in their academic achievement for school."
In 2014, the Utah Legislature passed a measure designed to break the cycle of poverty by setting aside funds for students to take part in after-school programs. The University of Utah study looked at 29 programs that have served some 10,000 kids from 2014 through the 2016 school year. Researchers found that students' test scores improved after just one year in the program. After three years, test-score improvements nearly tripled. "After-school programs have really been shown to increase engagement in the school day," says Gruber, "increase attendance, and also reduce risky behaviors at the end of the school day." The study found that nearly 60,000 children in Utah experienced intergenerational poverty in 2016, and nearly one in three kids is at risk of continuing to live in poverty as adults.

The lady Cats Softball state playoff season came to an end Thursday at Spanish Fork with a second round loss to Altamont 20 to 9. It was a season for the history books, it was their 1st trip to the state playoff and the girls gave a valiant effort. The State tournament jitters got the best of the Lady Bobcats, as they gave up 8 runs in the 1st inning on 4 walks and 5 hits. The Cats scored 1 run in the 2nd inning and held Altamont to 2 runs. The third inning brought a lot of excitement, as the Cats scored 5 runs
with a lead off walk to Kathleen Sullivan and singles by Alyssa and Camri Fischer, and Caitlyn Stowe, Cat Howell and a triple by Abbey Blevins. Altamont proved to be the more experienced team, as they scored 9 runs in the final two innings to get the win. Abbey Blevins went 3 for 3 on the day, a single, double and a triple and scored 3 runs. Camri Fischer went 2 for 3 and added 2 runs, Cat Howell also went 2 for 3 with one run. Jayde Rose had a triple and Jessica Roundy had a single. The Lady Cats should be very pleased with their season and especially with their never-give- up attitude throughout the season. Coach Kelly Holman says “A special thanks to our 3 seniorsCaitlyn Stowe, Caitlin Howell and Alyssa Fischer for their 4 years of dedication to the team. also many thanks to my assistant coaches Jenny Fischer and Genny Houston and to Kambree Howell and Abbee Holman as ball girls”.
UETN Secures Funding for Canvas Learning Management System Funding for Canvas is Provided for all K-12 Districts and Charter Schools Throughout Utah for the 2018 - 2019 School Year.
UTAH - Utah educators, students and parents are gaining access to course materials and grades from any internet connection this Fall. “Thanks to an ongoing appropriation from the Utah State Legislature, students and teachers across the state will continue to have Canvas in the classroom,” said Executive Director Ray Timothy of the Utah Education and Telehealth Network. “Having an easy to use, intuitive learning management system further facilitates the state’s Digital Teaching and
Learning Initiative and ensures that no matter where you are in the state, you have access to educational tools and a great teaching and learning environment,” explained Dr. Timothy. The licensing agreement began in the fall of 2017, and the legislature has continued appropriating money for the program through the 20182019 school year. Most of Utah’s public school districts have signed on to use the Canvas learning management system software provided to Utah public and charter schools.
Thirty-eight of Utah’s 41 districts have adopted the platform. Canvas allows teachers to upload course materials, assignments, quizzes, and videos so that their students can access them from the internet. The software is also capable of hosting classroom discussions, message boards, and audio and video chats. For more information: https://www.uen.org/ canvas/#support —Utah Press Association

Wills, Trusts, and More Record Keeping
t H e
by Jeffery J. McKenna Your estate plan is only as effective as the people you choose to help you carry it out. Choose wisely and organize your financial information in ways that make carrying out your plans as easy as possible. Think about it. You maintain a massive amount of information about your life in your head, in your desk, in your file cabinet, and in your computer. Now suppose that you were unable to tell people where everything was kept. Would they be able to find information quickly about your life, homeowners, or health insurance? Your mutual funds? Your pension? Your credit cards? Your estate planning documents? We have prepared a tool, to help you keep track of all of your assets, liabilities, and other important information. This tool is an estate planning binder. By you updating the binder regularly, you will make a dramatic difference in helping others settle your affairs if you become incapacitated or if you were to suddenly die. The binder will also help you when you need this information -- whether you are filing a tax return, making an insurance claim, or even sending out change-ofaddress notices after a move.
Documents that are difficult or impossible to replace should be stored where the danger of destruction by fire or other accidental means is minimal. A fireproof safe might be a worthwhile investment, keeping in mind that there may be a delay in gaining access to a safe-deposit box. Some items on the list, such as your will, should be kept in more than one location. For example, the original might be kept in your safe-deposit box, and a copy with a loved one. Recordkeeping can simplify so many things for your loved ones, should they need to assist you in organizing your affairs should you become ill, or take over your affairs should you die. It is a valuable tool in keeping track of your own affairs, especially should memory fade in your older years. Because it is such an important help and valuable timesaving tool, the Law Office of Barney, McKenna & Olmstead will provide you with a comprehensive Estate Planning Recordkeeper. In it you can log your important information, then provide cop-

My husband retired, and for the first time in over 40 years I had to think about preparing midday meals. Tired of it after several months, I said, "I married you for better or worse, but not for lunch." "Fair enough. From now on I'll make my own," he replied. A few weeks later he had to go downtown on business and invited me to join him afterwards. "We could have lunch at that Chinese place we both like," he suggested. I happily agreed. At the restaurant the next day we were seated, and the waiter came to take our order. My husband looked up, a twinkle in his eyes and said, "Separate checks,please..."

I went to a Costume party where everyone was in costume, except for this one fellow who was dressed handsomely and was carting around a long piece of lumber that looked like a 2 x 4. I stopped trying to guess what his costume was, and instead just asked what he was dressed as. He pointed to himself and the piece of wood and said, "We're a couple of studs."
I'm a great enginear ... engeneir ... enginere ... I'm good at math.
Filica, my sleepy fiveyear-old niece, slipped into my bed just as my husband was heading downstairs to prepare breakfast. "Why do you hate eggs, Auntie?" she asked me. "Who said I hate eggs?" I replied. "But," she said, "I just heard you ask Uncle Anthony to break a few eggs and beat them up for you!"
I've just written a song about tortillas - actually, it's more of a rap.
Sorry I'm Late
Late one Saturday evening, I was awakened by the ringing of my phone. In a sleepy, grumpy voice I said hello. The party on the other end of the line paused for a moment before rushing breathlessly into a lengthy speech. "Mom, this is Susan, and I'm sorry I woke you up, but I had to call because I'm going to be a little late getting home. See, Dad's car has a flat but it's not my fault. Honest! I don't know what happened. The tire just went flat while we were inside the theater. Please don't be mad, OK?" Since I don't have any daughters, I knew the person had dialed my number by mistake. "I'm sorry dear," I replied, "but you've reached the wrong number. I don't have a daughter named Susan." "Wow, Mom," the young woman's voice replied, "I didn't think you'd be this mad."

This bipartisan legislation would help eliminate the maintenance backlog by means of a well-established principle of multiple-use that has worked in other instances, by directing part of the revenue from energy development on some of our federal lands to maintain other federal lands for public enjoyment. Our proposal does just this: It would create the National Park Restoration Fund to provide mandatory funding for the maintenance backlog at our national parks. These revenues will come from energy leases on all onshore and offshore sources of energy production on federal land: oil, gas, coal, renewables, and alternative energy. The fund would receive 50% of onshore and offshore revenues from energy production on federal lands over expected amounts that are not already allocated to other purposes. It's a fair proposition that those activities that gain wealth from public lands should also have an obligation to restore and preserve them. Turkeys

"If you don't," he says, "by tomorrow, he might be in a different area." How to get a permit If you'd like to get in on the action — and hunt turkeys right away — buy your permit from a hunting license agent or a DWR office If you buy a permit at wildlife.utah.gov, you won't be able to hunt until your permit arrives in the mail. It will probably take a few days for your permit to arrive.
This idea -- using public land "for the benefit and enjoyment of the people" -- has been around for over a century. The words are engraved into the Roosevelt Arch at Yellowstone National Park -- an arch whose cornerstone Theodore Roosevelt dedicated in 1903. Almost 60 years later in 1962, the Outdoor Recreation Resources Review Commission, (which Laurance Rockefeller chaired), proposed using revenues from oil and gas leasing in the Outer Continental Shelf to fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund, or LWCF. Congress enacted the LWCF in 1964. In the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan's Commission on Americans Outdoors endorsed the LWCF and recommended full funding. Between its inception and 2016, the LWCF has spent $17.5 billion from energy exploration for conservation projects. In 2006, Congress went even further and passed the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act. That legislation provided mandatory or automatic funding for state projects in the LWCF program. These
revenues came from specific, new Outer Continental Shelf leases in the Gulf of Mexico. Our bipartisan proposal, then, is the latest chapter in this American story of conservation: using revenues from energy development on federal lands as mandatory or automatic funding to help pay for the national park maintenance backlog. In this connected age -- where our attention is increasingly held hostage by the glowing pixels of a five-inch screen -- unplugging, taking in the magnificent vistas of our national parks, and reconnecting with the beauty and wonder of the natural world is more important than ever. National parks preserve beauty for everyone -- regardless of socioeconomic status -- to share. Parents rescue children from their digital diet to feast on a world of natural splendor. We learn there the history of our home regions of East Tennessee, of Montana -- and of our nation's capital. We must work together to restore these national treasures, so future generations have the same opportunity to enjoy them that we have had.

Noble Henry Craig Jr. 1948 - 2018
PANGUITCH - Noble Henry Craig Jr., born August 6th, 1948, passed away on April 26th, 2018. He has gone to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ. Noble was, as his name says, very Noble. With charisma and an enduring positive mental attitude, he overcame the largest of life’s obstacles, raised 5 children, beat cancer and continued to be an inspiration for anyone lucky enough to find themselves in his presence. When he was 19 and in the 82nd Airborne division of the Army, he was sent to Vietnam. After being there only 12 days, he stepped on a booby trap while leading his troop through a “cleared” field. He lived, but lost his legs, one arm and vision in one eye. While in the Letterman Hospital, he was asked to encourage other boys who had lost a lot less and had given up. He would go into these wounded vets rooms with a big smile on his face, pulling wheelies and would ask, “hey, what’s the matter with you?” After looking at Noble and his loss, they realized their loss wasn’t that bad and life was good after all. He was always on the move and never met an obstacle he couldn’t overcome; he hunted antelope in Wyoming, buck deer in Colorado and Utah. Noble would knee board, scuba dive, ski, deep sea fish and many more vigorous activities. He drove everywhere and it didn’t matter if it was a long-distance trip to Washington State, a quarter mile in his 1971 426 Hemi Cuda or over sand dunes in his hand built sand rail. He loved to go fast, play hard and never let his condition hold him back. Noble also had more than the standard 15 minutes of fame. His unique condition combined with his physical shape and charisma landed him various Hollywood roles in movies like: The Blob, Big Trouble in Little China, Poltergeist II, and Nightmare on Elm Street 5. Costa Rica has always had a special place in Noble’s heart. Noble was treated and given respect by all, it allowed him many opportunities to show his true colors and help others; most of all, Noble got the pleasure of showing his children what REAL adventure was like. Noble leaves behind his beloved wife of 27 years, Elena Craig, and his 4 surviving children: Yana Rene Craig Sparks, Amber Marie Breer, Kyle Austin Craig and Easton Taylor Craig. Noble also had 5 Grandchildren: Ashley Lynn Lanning, Marcus Alan Pfeifle, Natalia Renee Palacios, August Miguel Palacios and Vegas Sterling Nix. Noble is reunited with his son Robert Noble Craig and brother Buck Craig who have both passed away. Noble’s parents, Noble and Harriet Craig have passed on however his step-mother, Phyllis Craig lives at home in Colorado at the age of 97. Noble is survived by his two sisters: Barbara and her husband, Jean (Eldie) Allison, who live in Panguitch, UT and Darlene Marie Craig who lives in Monroe, UT. Noble is also survived by his twin brother, William Lane Craig and wife, Beverly Craig, who live in Lake Havasu City, AZ. There will be a military service at the Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery May 24th at 10am and a graveside service for family and friends at Panguitch Cemetery on May 26th at 11am.

by Mack Oetting ~ mackoetting @gmail.com May is sure keeping up with the wind. Our crab apple trees came into blossom on Tuesday and were beautiful for two whole days. Then the wind kicked up and now most of the color is gone, with the exception of a few of the trees that were fortunately covered from the wind. Our irrigation water won’t start till next Monday, and the City decided to put it off for another week. However, the City is reading the meters now, and if you are using culinary water to water your lawn you will be charged for it till the middle of September. I don’t know if it will effect the economy or not this year, but both the Pound and the Euro have lost some of their value. Until earlier this month they ( pound and euro) received about a 30% discount by coming to the USA, with our weak dollar. Went into the new NAPA store last week and bought a lawn mower battery, and boy is it big. There is a huge inventory of auto parts or anything that you might need to keep your machinery in tip top condition. It is a great addition to the town. It looks like Jason Orton is starting work on his new tire store building, where the old coal yard used to be, hopefully he will be up and running soon. Many of the business are reporting that business is picking up. You might want to check out the Panguitch Mercantile on Main St. With the school sports programs winding down, if you are looking for something to do, try taking in a movie, it sure beats what is on the TV. With Memorial Day approaching rapidly, you need to remove all of the plastic decoration at the cemetery, so the grounds keeper can come in and mow and weed wack around the grave sites. I am switching back to our old grave markers for the Veterans. The ones that I tried to glue on the markers just aren’t holding up. People put things
into them, and the wind and freezing temperatures knock them over. Please, please give me a call if I miss one of your loved ones who were Veterans, I do so every year, it is nothing new. (676-2418). The Saturday of Memorial weekend we will have the annual Main Street garage sale, so get out all of those things that you needed but can’t find a use for, and bring them down for the sale. Last summer a motorcycle group called the Patriot Guard Riders of Utah contacted me about coming into town and wondered if the Veterans could sponsor them while they were here. I was going to be on a trip at that time and I gave them Joe Orman’s phone number, and he was kind enough to welcome them here. The Patriot Guard Riders travel around the State and visit different places every year. They also will come down for any Veterans funeral if needed. Thanks to Joe, we got a check made out to the American Legion, and they also gave one to the Volunteer Fire Dept. The Legion has put on a dinner for all of the Veterans in the area on Veterans Day, and the money will enable the Legion to keep this tradition going on for several more years, thanks a lot, Joe. Jordan Bennett, one of our high school seniors, was picked as a runner up in the Sterling Scholarship competition held last month. Her subject was Family and Consumers Science. This Competition is open to all schools in the southern part of the state, and the competition is really tough. The winner receives a $1400 scholarship and the runner up receives a $533 scholarship. Jordan is a very good athlete, as well as receiving All State Academic Awards in Cross Country, Volleyball, Basketball and also for next week’s State Track meet. While at the softball game in Fillmore, I ran into the Finch’s and ask them what
they were doing there, and they were up at their Daughter MaKenna’s (sp) graduation from UVU, with a Bachelor of Science degree. They also said that Wally Lee’s son, Brandon ,had also received his degree. Hard work by these students has really paid off. Congratulation to them and their families. One of the new fads is a Gluten Free diet. A recent survey showed that nearly 30 percent of U.S. adults were trying to minimize or avoid gluten. You see signs in many of the restaurants that they have gluten free items. That makes sense if you have celiac disease or other symptoms of gluten sensitivity. But it is not for everyone else. Going gluten free can raise the risk of heart disease. Cereals and grains have important health benefits and shouldn’t be done away with. The tradition of wearing a poppy dates back to 1920, when it became the memorial flower of The American Le-
gion Family. The red poppy came to symbolize the blood shed by those who fought and those who continue to fight for our country following World War I. It was popularized by the publication of the wartime poem, In Flanders Fields,. Written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, M.D. while serving on the front lines in World War I. The poem honors soldiers killed in battle. The American Legion led the charge of having Congress designate the Friday before Memorial Day as National Poppy Day®, a tradition found in many countries around the world. National Poppy Day® encourages all Americans to wear a red poppy to honor the fallen and support the living heroes who have worn our nation’s uniform. Look for poppy's at the Main Street yard sale- Sub for Santa table and at the cemetery starting on Saturday before memorial day.
Changes Coming to Fishlake National Forest Travel Maps
RICHFIELD – In order to resolve a difference between the Fishlake National Forest’s OHV Route Designation Project Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) and the Fishlake National Forest Travel Maps dated 2013, roads on the Fremont River and Beaver Ranger Districts designated as “ATVs and UTVs Prohibited” are now open to all highway legal vehicles licensed under State of Utah law for general operation. The use of ATVs and UTVs on affected campground roads will be restricted to entry and exit only. The Fishlake OHV Route Designation Project, signed in December 2006, and the accompanying MVUM, designated certain Forest roads as “Roads Open to Highway Legal Vehicles Only”. The MVUM defines these roads as roads open only to motor vehicles licensed under State law for general operation on all public roads within the state. At the time the OHV Project was signed, ATVs/UTVs
had not been designated as highway legal vehicles in the state of Utah and therefore they were restricted from operating on these roads. The passage of Utah SB 181 later authorized the use of streetlegal ATVs/UTVs on certain highways in the state of Utah, which created a situation where the existing ATV/UTV restrictions were in conflict with the State’s intent. The Beaver and Fremont River District Rangers have determined that the most appropriate travel management policy for the Districts’ “Roads Open to Highway Legal Vehicles Only” is that which was provided in the original MVUM designation. Therefore, effective immediately, all roads designated as “Roads Open to Highway Legal Vehicles Only” on the MVUM will be open to all motor vehicles licensed under State law for general operation. This includes highway legal ATVs/ UTVs. —USFS

By Way of Boulder by Peg Smith ~ email@example.com
A bit of Boulder history dropped in my lap the other day. I’ve already passed this information along to locals on the Boulder “Pegboard.” But since Bryce is also asking for some information, I wanted to distribute his letter a little further afield. It’s fascinating history too. This is from Bryce Buchanan, with some minor editing: “My Mother, Cleo Baker Buchanan, was born in Boulder 90 years ago, a child of Ed and Maggie Baker. I will be bringing her to Boulder on May 16 and staying in town for a week. Returning 'home' is one of her favorite things. If any of you history buffs or old time residents could help me, here are some things that would really be fun for our family to see and do on this trip. 1. Ed and Maggie's last home in Boulder was on the property west of Boulder Creek, now owned by Ray Nelson and Denise Pennington. After Maggie and her children moved to Richfield, the property was owned by Marion Jepsen. After that, Burns Ormond and family owned the property. We would love to see pictures of Ed and Maggie’s old home. I am not sure when it burned down, but it was there for enough years that it is likely that someone might still have some photos. 2. Ed Baker's first Boulder home was on a homesteaded parcel in Lower Boulder. That home is also gone now, but we would love to see photos if anyone had any. The home was right behind the Donna Owen’s house. Previous owners of the property include Kelly Roundy, Leland and Golda Haws, Burnell and Clea Baker, and Charles Haycock. 3. I know that someone has a historical photo archive. How do we arrange to see it? 4. Two of Maggie and Ed's possessions are probably still in Boulder somewhere. One is their organ and the other is a set of autographed Zane Grey books. Ed was given the set by Zane Grey as a "thank-you" for taking him on an extended trip around southern Utah. Ed was known as one of the most knowledgeable guides for the mostly unknown wonders of southern Utah. If anyone knows where the
books or the organ ended up, let me know. 5. If there is anyone left who remembers my Mom or her family, we would enjoy talking to them! My contact info is at the bottom of this. I know that Ann King Reynolds visits occasionally. It would be great to see her. P.S. Here’s some history as it relates to the Baker family, some of Boulder's earliest settlers. Some of this information is from "Boulder Country and Its People" by Lenora LeFevre and the Boulder Heritage Foundation book, "Homesteads, Ranches and Homes." In the Fall of 1889, four of Boulder's earliest settlers rode their horses across Boulder Mountain from the north looking for land. They were William George Baker, Willard Brinkerhoff, Amasa Lyman, and Sam Sheffield. Baker and Brinkerhoff each chose 640 acres and had it surveyed to start their claims on the land. Brinkerhoff claimed most of Lower Boulder. Baker, (the oldest brother of my grandfather, Edward Baker) claimed the land on the west side of Thompson's Ledge, including a stretch of Boulder Creek. He built a cabin by the river and the cabin still exists, and is owned by Bill and Judith Geil. Brinkerhoff worked on his land until 1897, and then sold it to William George Baker's father, (also named William George). The elder Baker had two wives and two large families. The Brinkerhoff land was divided among the children from one of his families. You could ride down the road in Lower Boulder and have Bakers on both sides of you all the way down. Edward Baker's home site, for example was across the street from his brother Claude, which is now a Jepsen property. If you went east of Thompson's ledge, that huge plot of land belonged to big brother William George. So there was a time when the majority of the early settlers of Boulder, owning much of the land, were members of the Baker family. It has always been surprising to me, being just two generations down from these pioneers, that no Bakers remain in Boulder. I love Boulder, so it is hard for me to understand why they all moved on. But they did. For Ed and Maggie's
family, it is not difficult to see why they needed to leave Boulder. Ed was just finishing building his last house in Boulder when he died of a heart attack at a sawmill on Boulder Mountain. He left Maggie with eight children, the youngest a one-year old girl. When you think about how difficult life in Boulder was in the pioneer days, it is hard to imagine how this little woman made her life work without Ed. She was small, but strong, and like all the pioneers, she did what she had to do. She lived in Boulder for about five more years before moving to Richfield so that the children could attend school. Maggie is next to Ed now, in the Boulder cemetery. Here's one more historical note about Ed's guiding skill: The National Research Council was formed by the government in 1916 "to encourage the investigation of natural phenomenon." Herbert Gregory, a Yale geology professor, was a leader in that organization. In 1918, he asked Ed to guide an expedition into the areas of Cottonwood Canyon and the Pariah drainage. In a 1922 letter to Ed, he called that 1918 trip, "one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life." He’d written to Ed to ask him to lead a month-long geological mapping trip, starting in Kanab and exploring Colorado River and Escalante River drainages to the north. Professor Gregory wrote, "You are a mighty pleasant person to be out with. You will be paid any amount which you consider reasonable." I assume my grandfather showed Professor Gregory the beautiful, natural bridge that spanned the creek in Fiftymile Canyon. The bridge was given the name Gregory Natural Bridge. The bridge was lost to the rising waters of Lake Powell in 1969. I’d pay a lot to be able to talk to my Grandpa for just an hour. He was gone long before I arrived. I think there was a time when he knew as
much about the magnificent canyon country as anyone on earth. I would also love to talk to his brother, Eugene, who bought the 320 acres at Halls Crossing and ran that remote ranch for many years. He was essentially alone in that beautiful part of the world. When Lake Powell is low, you can still find traces of the homestead, which is listed on Powell maps as the "old Baker House." My Mother's oldest brother, Hayward, traveled between Boulder and the Halls Crossing Ranch quite often. There was a time when the U.S. government sent people to find a way to put a road from the Boulder area to the Colorado River. They wanted to get road access to uranium deposits, when this was important for defense reasons. I’ve been told that Hayward met this survey group just as they were giving up on ever getting a road through that convoluted red-rock country. Hayward said, "I can show you the way." The Burr Trail was born.” Bryce Buchanan, 503 523 8987, firstname.lastname@example.org

Edward Kloogh Young (Eddie) 1952 - 2018
BOULDER - Edward Young passed away April 26, 2018, on the Burr Trail near Boulder, Utah. Eddie was born on December 8, 1952, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to William Rupert Young and Signe Mary Young, the first of four children. Eddie honorably served in the U.S. Army from 1972 to 1974, where he was stationed in Berlin, Germany. Throughout his life, Eddie was an active athlete excelling in tennis, skiing and golf. He won many tennis awards. A conscientious craftsman, Eddie was skilled in most of the construction trades. His artistic talents are evident in many of his projects. A loyal, true and generous person, he provided a helping hand to many friends and family members. He particularly enjoyed working with children and animals. With a heart of gold, Eddie always reached out to help those who were less fortunate. One of his many remarkable traits was his dry wit and uncanny sense of humor, which at times was on the colorful and irreverent side, but never hateful or mean-spirited. Eddie spent the past 16 years in Boulder, Utah as the head of maintenance and project manager for Boulder Mountain Lodge. He will be sorely missed by his co-workers and many friends. Eddie is survived by two brothers and a sister; Norman Young, Leslie Young and Sonja Gifford, all residing in Salt Lake City. A memorial service will be held May 18, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at the Boulder Mountain Lodge, Boulder Utah. A memorial service will also be held in Salt Lake City in June.

Local Lawyer Regulations by Megan Mustoe Types of Laws. We are surrounded by rules. We follow social, moral, ethical, and government rules, among others. I admit, I have my personal social, moral, and ethical rules and we can get lunch sometime to discuss those. Until then, I’ll explain different types of government rules and where they fit in the conglomerate of “the government.” Here we go, so hold on tight. Federal Statutes. Federal statutes are laws created and passed by Congress and signed by the President. Statutes define the purpose, spending, delegation of administration to an agency, and causes of action against parties who violate the statute. An example is the Farm Bill. Federal rules. Federal rules are created by agencies, commissions, and the executive branch. Rules require public input or allow for appeal through the federal courts. They are created through policy preferences of the executive branch and interpreting the federal statute. Rules are limited in scope to the statute they interpret and the delegation from the congress to the administrative agency. Following our example, the Farm Bill delegates some authority to the Natural Resources Conservation Association (NRCS) to create rules about the Conservation Easement Program. Agency policies and guides. Rules can still be ambiguous so agencies may further interpret the rule by creating policies and handbooks interpreting the rule. As long as the policy and handbook are within the scope of the rule, delegation to the agency, and statute, it is enforceable. So, NRCS administers the Conservation Easement Program including the Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program, Healthy Forests Reserve Program, and the Wetlands Reserve Program. Administration includes determine how federal funds are spent on these programs and policies for qualifying property. Spending decisions and policies for qualifying parties are determined by agency-policies and handbooks. Executive Orders. An executive order is written and signed
by the President and is limited to the enumerated powers of the executive branch. These powers include managing administrative agencies, foreign affairs, and national security, among others. Executive orders cannot encroach on congressional powers, such as interstate commerce, judicial powers, or constitutional rights. However, under the necessary and proper clause, the President can do what is reasonably necessary to carry out the laws and duties of the office. If valid, an executive order has the same legal power as a statute. So, to jump out of the weeds for a moment and back to an understandable discussion about different types of laws, let’s follow an example. The constitution protects people’s life, liberty, and property. The US federal code describes crimes, statutes of limitations, and procedures for federal criminal charges with a range amount of time and fines for sentencing. The United States Sentencing Commission, an agency, creates sentencing guidelines to be followed by the judge that are within the scope of the statute’s range of sentencing. So, if you are taking your cat on a whitewater boat trip through the Grand Canyon or roll something down a hill in any National Park, you could be caught, charged, and convicted with a federal crime. These crimes are defined in federal regulations that are authorized by federal statutes. Once convicted, your sentence would be within the range allowed by the statute and the judge would consider the sentencing guidelines. This is all complex, and if you are in the “too long didn’t read,” just remember to not roll items downhill in national parks or take your cat on whitewater trips. Your attorney and cat will thank you. Disclaimer. As always, my column is not legal advice, instead merely insight into the law and legal profession. If you have a general question about the law or legal profession, please email me at megan@ mustoelaw.com or call my office at 435.610.1431.

Three Common Ways Your Social Security Payment Can Grow After Retirement by Mickie Douglas
You made the choice and now you are happily retired. You filed online for your Social Security benefits. They arrive each month in the correct amount exactly as expected. But, did you ever wonder if your Social Security check could increase? Once you begin receiving benefits, there are three common ways benefit checks can increase: a cost of living adjustment (COLA); additional work; or an adjustment at full retirement age if you received reduced benefits and exceeded the earnings limit. The COLA is the most commonly known increase for Social Security payments. We annually announce a COLA, and there’s usually an increase in the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit amount people receive each month. By law, federal benefit rates increase when the cost of living rises, as measured by the Department of Labor’s Consumer Price Index (CPI-W). More than 66 million Americans saw a 2.0 percent increase in their Social Security and SSI benefits in 2018. For more information on the 2018 COLA, visit www.socialsecurity. gov/cola. Social Security uses your highest thirty-five years of earnings to figure your benefit amount when you sign up for benefits. If you work after you begin receiving benefits, your additional
earnings may increase your payment. If you had fewer than 35 years of earnings when we figured your benefit, you will replace a zero earnings year with new earnings. If you had 35 years or more, we will check to see if your new year of earnings is higher than the lowest of the 35 years (after considering indexing). We check additional earnings each year you work while receiving Social Security. If an increase is due, we send a notice and pay a onetime check for the increase and your continuing payment will be higher. Maybe you chose to receive reduced Social Security retirement benefits while continuing to work. You made the choice to take benefits early, but at a reduced rate. If you exceeded the allowable earnings limit and had some of your benefits withheld, we will adjust your benefit once you reach full retirement age. We will refigure your payment to credit you for any months you did not receive payments. Your monthly benefit will increase based on the crediting months you receive. You can find additional information about working and your benefit at www.socialsecurity.gov/ pubs/EN-05-10077.pdf. Retirement just got more interesting since you learned about potential increases to monthly payments. Social Security has been securing your today and tomorrow for more than 80 years with information and tools to help you achieve a successful retirement.

Hatch Introduces Golden Spike Anniversary Bill,Reminisces About Original Golden Spike Celebration 149 Years Ago
WASHINGTON, DC - This afternoon, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the senior Republican in the United States Senate, introduced the Golden Spike 150th Anniversary Act—a bill honoring the completion of America’s first transcontinental railroad in Promontory, Utah. “As one of the few Utahns who was alive to witness the driving of the Golden Spike, I’m honored to introduce legislation celebrating that tremendous day 149 years later. While I may have been just a boy at the time, I knew they were making history with the completion of the transcontinental railroad. Golden Spike Historical Park will serve as a fitting tribute to an event that brought the entire country together.” Background:

Young Orrin Hatch at a celebration following the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit on May 10, 1869. The Golden Spike 150th Anniversary Act— Redesignates Golden Spike National Historic Site as Golden Spike National Historical Park In 2017, Golden Spike National Historic Site had 67,811 visitors—up from 60,027 in 2016. This only equates to 185 visitors per day. Redesignation as a National Historical Park will encourage more visitors without affecting management of the site in any way.
Establishes within the National Park Service a Transcontinental Railroad Network This bill establishes a network of sites related to the history, construction, and legacy of the Transcontinental Railroad. The network will be similar to the previously established Underground Railroad Network to Freedom (P.L. 105-203) and the African American Civil Rights Network (P.L. 115-104). Authorizes the super-
intendent of Golden Spike National Historic Site to enter into agreements with adjacent landowners to complete minor projects Adjacent landowners have had a sometimes difficult relationship with the National Park Service. Small projects such as installing a new water line across or through the historic railroad bed, in a previously disturbed area, have been mired in bureaucratic process. To ease tensions, this legislation requires the superintendent to approve or disapprove requests for projects that will affect the surface or subsurface of a historical crossing within 30 days. Authorizes the superintendent of Golden Spike National Historic Site to enter into agreements with adjacent land owners for removal of invasive species Adjacent landowners have been concerned about land managed by the National Park Service at Golden Spike National Historic Site becoming an incubator for invasive species. This bill requires the superintendent, at the request of a local landowner, to authorize the landowner to participate in the eradication of the invasive species. The agreement allows the superintendent to determine the method, timing, and location of the eradication, and the authorization must provide for appropriate indemnification of the landowner. —Office of Senator Orrin Hatch
