Sleeping Rainbow School of Music’s Spring Violin Recital

Players at last weekend's violin recital in Bicknell were Hanna Williams, Kenadie Leavitt, Shayla Barlow, Kenna Stephenson, Vanessa Barlow, Breanna Winters, and Adam Winters. BICKNELL - Whether you have a young brain that is still growing or an old brain that needs exercise, learning to play an instrument is a brain booster. But the seven violin players who performed at Wayne High School in Bicknell on May 17th didn't care about growing new synapses, they were in it for the sheer joy of playing music. Their families and friends were there to celebrate their accomplishments and to encourage them to keep learning. The violinists were students of Lynsey Shelar of

Torrey. Lynsey's Sleeping Rainbow School of Music students range in age from 3 to 87. Some are starters and others want to hone their abilities after decades of playing. The students who performed at the Spring Solo Violin Recital were Kenadie Leavitt, Shayla Barlow, Kenna Stephenson, Adam Winters, Vanessa Barlow, Breanna Winters, and Hanna Williams. The selections they chose ranged from simple folk songs to Johann Sebastian Bach. Lynsey is an avid rock climber who has traveled the

world in pursuit of physical challenges that may seem at odds with also being a trained violinist but she says her passions for vertical walls and music are similar. "Music, after all, is the landscape of the soul. I want to help my students explore that. They'll find that same attention to detail and positive attitude you need to climb a cliff," she said. Lynsey Shelar's Sleeping Rainbow School of Music can be contacted by calling 435531-3599. —Chip Ward

High Adventure Holds Grand Opening ESCALANTE - High Adventure Gas & Goodies/ATV and Jeep Rentals held their grand opening celebration this past Friday and Saturday, attracting a steady stream of locals and travelers with free hot dogs and drinks over the twoday event. The store initially opened last October 1st and has been open all winter, however Escalante’s Seymour family, who have polished up the Main Street location with a completely renovated building, new gas pumps and lighting (and much more), felt that offering an opening party would be much better at the first officially warm breath of spring. “Some people wondered why we waited so long, but we wanted it to be a really welcoming event and have the store completely stocked,” said Jeannie Seymour. “It’s been great…we’ve had a lot of people come in who hadn’t been in to the store, yet.” High Adventure ATV and Jeep Rentals offers three different models of ATVs as well as Jeeps for exploring the region. The Gas & Goodies store has a walk-in “beer cave” which is kept at a constant temperature of 30 degrees and includes a wide variety popular Utah microbrews as well as imported beers and old standbys. For those in need of a morning (or any time) kick-start, High Adventure offers fresh ground coffee (we grind it every morning!) including Eyes Wide Open and Columbian Supreme.

Cowboy Movies Come to Torrey! TORREY - Mark Friday nights on your summer calendar. Real cowboy fun is coming to Torrey Town! Robber’s Roost and the Broken Spur Inn and Steakhouse are partnering to create a great family event – Cowboy dinners and Western movies on the lawn at Robber’s Roost. On June 6, the series kicks off with the Academy Awardwinning Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Other classic Westerns on the schedule include The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Shane, True Grit (for which John Wayne won his only Oscar), and Paint your Wagon. Robber’s Roost, named after the nearby red rock hideout of Butch Cassidy, is owned by the Scholl family, including Laura, her brother Barry, and his wife, Tifani. The Scholl's have a long family history on the Colorado Plateau. Their great-grandfather, George Chaffin, was an early Wayne County settler who homesteaded at the site of today’s Red River Ranch. Their uncle, Arthur Chaffin, ran the ferry across the Colorado River at Hite Landing in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, and is widely credited with discovering Goblin Valley, in the 1930s. Their

History in the Attic: Community Scanning Event Reminder ESCALANTE - Remember to bring your original photos (1950’s and earlier), histories (typed or hand written), family history books, journals, Bible record pages, cemetery records, etc. to be scanned by BYU and Family Search professionals using high quality equipment this Friday (Escalante Community Center, 10-6) and Saturday (Escalante High School, 10-5). We have a lot of great old photos of our area, let’s overwhelm them with scanning. These two groups have never joined forces and come to a community to do anything like this. Take advantage of this opportunity to document our history. This project is sponsored by the Utah Academic Library Consortium and Mountain West Digital Library in partnership with Family Search, Escalante Utah Stake Heritage Center, Escalante Heritage Center, Boulder Heritage Foundation, Escalante River Watershed Partnership, Sons of the Utah Pioneers, Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and Escalante Heritage Day.

Gary Hallows of the Broken Spur Inn and Barry Scholl of Robber's Roost Books in Torrey are teaming up for a summer of cowboy dinners and western movies at Robber's Roost. great-uncles and cousins ranged widely across the area as stockmen, backcountry guides, and miners. The Roost has become the Torrey hideout. It is a bookstore, gift shop, vintage guitar store, and gathering place to share coffee or juice with friends and family. Almost an acre of lawn and old growth cottonwoods make it the perfect place to bring your lawn blanket or low-backed chairs to enjoy a classic Western film. In addition to the movies, Gary and Francine Hallows and their partners, Travis and Holly VanOrden, owners of Torrey’s new Broken Spur Inn

Panguitch's GEM Theater Hosts a Memorial Weekend Film Festival PANGUITCH - The Panguitch GEM Theater will be hosting a “Memorial Day Weekend Film Festival” featuring sixteen of the all-time greatest war movies, four per day on May 23, 24, 25, and 26. The event was conceived and organized by local Panguitch resident, Randy Swanson. Sponsored by the Panguitch Lion’s Club, the Panguitch Sesquicentennial Committee, and the GEM Theater, this special event will honor our veterans and educate our young people to the incredible sacrifice made by so many to protect freedom and liberty in these United States. All of the movies are classics. The modern day Spielberg film, War Horse, is a story set in WW I and displays the gruesome trench warfare from that war that few people have ever seen in big screen Technicolor. Pearl Harbor is an epic film showing the beginning of WW II with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Unlike other movies of this attack, this film continues the story through the magnificent U.S. reprisal with the Doolittle raid on Tokyo. The Guns of Navarone and The Great Escape are from WW II. Based on true stories, these two films show superstars like Gregory Peck, David Niven, Anthony Quinn, and Steve McQueen at their heroic best. Midway depicts the turning point of the war in the Pacific when the U.S. defeated the Japanese navy. The judgments and decisions being made by our military in the battle of Midway are riveting. The display of luck, skill, and the hand of providence will keep you on the edge of your seat. Saving Private Ryan has the most realistic portrayal of the

D-Day landing that has ever been created. Patton shows the North African campaign to defeat Rommel and the final battles of WW II in the battle of the Bulge where the Nazi forces were finally broken leading to the defeat of Hitler. In an interview, George C. Scott stated that this was one of the hardest acting jobs he had ever undertaken and he felt it was one of his best performances. The film won seven Academy Awards in 1970. Schindler’s List is a moving, and somewhat shocking, drama about one man’s efforts to save Jews during the horrific annihilations during the Nazi occupation of Europe. If you have never really understood the holocaust, this film is a must. The Korean War is depicted in the classic film M*A*S*H which stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital. This humorous film shows the contrast between the horrific triage medical heroics of the surgeons and staff during the Korean conflict, and the humor of wacky people, antics, and relationships that were necessary to stay sane in the midst of constant barrage of human destruction. We Were Soldiers, starring Mel Gibson, is the accurate story of our first military action in the Vietnam War with the first use of helicopters as the primary aircraft for jungle warfare. The Green Berets with John Wayne is the only totally positive movie ever made about the Vietnam War. Platoon, I am told by many friends who served in Vietnam, is the most accurate portrayal of what our young men actually faced who were on the front lines in Vietnam. Gem Theater Cont’d on page 2

Good Morning Vietnam, starring Robin Williams, is a funny and tragic film about the life of the military in Saigon and the local Vietnamese villagers. Black Hawk Down is a story of U.S. military trying to assist in the Somalia conflict where war lords and mercenaries were brutalizing and starving the people of Somalia. The film is particularly about the commitment to never leave a soldier behind when two Black Hawk helicopters are shot down and herculean efforts are made to save the crews. Finally, Desert Storm and the Iraq War are portrayed in the two movies Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty. Hurt Locker is about the men who defused the bombs set for the military by local terrorists in Baghdad. The movie received six Academy Awards and is hailed as a defining movie of the present era. Zero Dark Thirty is the movie about the finding and killing of Osama bin Laden. This story is reviewed by the critics as history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man. Before each film, there will be a short video presentation of interviews with a number of our veterans currently living in Panguitch and Hatch. You won’t want to miss these veterans, your friends and neighbors, as they share some of their story on the big screen. These films are all historically true about the heroic conduct and the sheer magnitude of the U.S. military engagements over eight decades of world conflict. Some of the depictions are controversial, as are the reasons or propriety of the military actions in the first place. Many young people hear references to these wars, but know very little about what actually took place. Every one of these military stories is a slice of history that will leave you, your children, and grandchildren enthralled. Memorial Day is a fitting time to honor our veterans, and, whether you agree or not with the wars, a time to revere the blood shed by our brave men and women

this year and expect that it will be an awesome gathering of riders and racers.� The Capitol Reef Classic road race is sanctioned with a permit by USA Cycling, and is also a UCA point series event, with all USA Cycling rules in effect.

Jason Orton Wins Browning Prize Orton Tire is the winner of a new Browning shotgun

Jason Orton of Orton Tire and Lube Service in Panguitch won this year's Browning Corp./Cooper Tire Prize for service. PANGUITCH - Jason Orton was surprised last week to see two men enter his tire store in Panguitch and presented him with a box. The box contained a coveted Browning shotgun. This Browning, Shadow Grass Camo A5 3 ½ Magnum is one of top Browning guns made, and is a highly sought-after entry in Browning’s collection. Browning Corporation and Cooper Tire, one of the tire lines that Orton carries, combined for a promotion throughout this year. For every set of Cooper tires a customer purchases, he or she is given a new Browning pocket knife. The tire dealer is then entered into a drawing for the shotgun. “I’ve never won anything before,â€? Jason said, “ex-

cept a bicycle years ago!� Jason has worked in the tire business most of his life. In 2004, he founded Orton Tire, which has been a strong presence in Panguitch. Beginning as a small tire store, Orton Tire has expanded into a full service auto care facility. Known for their cleanliness, honesty and service, Orton’s has grown to serve several communities. Jason is also active in the Panguitch area as an avid golfer and a family man. His son, Jansen, also works with him in the business. Those who know him and his business describe him as one who “is always helping people.� —Larry Pearson, Pearson Tire

By Cynthia Kimball You are broken. I am broken. Everyone is broken to some degree. But broken things can be mended as LDS artist, Kenneth Cope, tells us in his song, “Broken,” (, 2008). Isn’t that great news? You may be broken, but you can be fixed and then help mend others. Here are a few examples of people I know who have done just that. A teenage alcoholic and drug addict became sober and now as an adult counsels others struggling with drug and alcohol dependence. A woman who suffered with being passive, learned to assert herself and then taught others to do the same and believe that they are more than enough.

Broken? Help Others with Their Brokenness

As a cancer survivor and BRCA mutation carrier, I help patients and family members deal with a cancer diagnosis and treatment and speak nationally about the “broken” mutations, BRCA1 & 2. One father, who did not have good role models for parents, became the best parent he could be. He essentially became what he did not have instead of cursing about it. Now his children reap the blessings of his love. And he feels their unconditional love in return. One teacher, who was bad in math in her K-12 years, later found a college professor who taught her math in a way she could understand. After that, she became a math teacher and fear was replaced with passion. She now “catches” students

who may be fearful of this same subject (i.e., those who just may not “get” math). Cope believes “that God loves broken things,” (Lyrics. com, 2008). Therefore, find purpose in your brokenness just like those above did. Then pray about who you need to help mend. After all, Cope believes, “Broken walls [will] make friends of you and me.” (Lyrics. com, 2008). Cynthia Kimball has a doctorate in curriculum and instruction. She is a speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC. She sometimes writes for Deseret Connect. E-mail:

A friend was thinking about buying a new house in the country and asked me to come out and look at it. We found the town, but we couldn't locate the road. We drove over to city hall, where a community get-together was going on, and asked around, but no one had heard of the road. Even the policemen and fire personnel were stumped. We went in to city hall and consulted a map, with no luck, until finally one young man came to our aid. He pointed to the map, showing us exactly how to get there. I thanked the young man and asked if he was with the police or fire department. "Neither," he replied. "I deliver pizzas."

Instant Cure

There was a nervous man whose imagination afflicted him with all kinds of ills which never seemed to materialize. One afternoon he staggered into the house. He was bent forward, and tottering to a chair, and still curled into a halfmoon shape, dropped into it. "Honey," he gasped, "it's come at last. There was no warning. All of a sudden I found that I couldn't straighten up and couldn't lift my head." When the doctor arrived and looked over the patient, the wife inquired, "Is there any hope?" "Well," the doctor said, "it will help a good deal if he can unhitch the third buttonhole of his vest from the top button of his trousers."

Safety First!

Dad's a safety-first kind of guy. But while vacationing with some buddies, he was talked into going parasailing. He was on the back of the boat getting hooked into the parachute when he nervously asked the pilot, "How often do you replace the rope?" The pilot replied. "Every time it breaks."

Texas Vegetables

I don't think I'll ever have a mother's intuition. My sister left me alone in a restaurant with my 10-month old nephew. I said, "What do I do if he cries?" She said, "Give him some vegetables." It turns out that jalapeno is not his favorite.

After a long day out, my mother and I stopped at our local grocery store on the way home. I ran in to pick up just a few things, leaving her in the car. As I approached the checkout, I was surprised to find her standing there, waiting for me. "Mom," I said, "what are you doing here? I left the motor running."

School Notes PHSbyNotebook D C Thank You for Everything onnie

Continuing Education With the conclusion of the graduation ceremonies in three high schools, we honor those students in the senior class who have completed the graduation requirements by conducting well-deserved graduation exercises celebrating their accomplishment with speeches and formal commencement activities. In the District, we also have several graduates who did not participate in the graduation exercises, but completed all of the requirements necessary to receive a high school diploma. I am referring to those students who graduated through the Garfield School District’s Adult Education Program. Curtis Barney is the Adult Education Director for the District and works diligently with those individuals who return to the District to acquire their high school diploma. Mr. Barney secures the funding for the program by applying for grants and state funding. The program is to-

tally funded by a competitive grant process at the Utah State Office of Education. This year the Adult Education Program graduated three students with their GED and 14 students with their Adult Education Diploma. Many of the adults who receive their diplomas are inmates in Garfield County Correctional Facility. If you are over the age of 16 and have not received a high school diploma, Mr. Barney would be glad to meet with you to enroll you in the program. The program can be completed wherever an internet connection is available. There is no charge to enroll or complete the program; it is totally free to anyone who enrolls in the program. If you would like to inquire about additional information relating to the Adult Education Program, please contact Curtis Barney at 435676-1151. He would be happy to help you acquire your high school diploma.

If you started college but never had a chance to finish your Bachelor’s Degree, Southern Utah University now has a program called The School of Continuing and Professional Studies, which will allow you to enroll in college to acquire a Bachelor's of Art/Science with a minor in General Studies. The program allows you to apply your old college credits towards a Bachelor Degree. The program is online and designed for adult learners who have at a minimum earned 60 college credits from a regionally accredited college or university. For more information about the General Studies Bachelor Degree program please visit No matter where you are in your life, if you would like to continue your education, there are multiple options available at your fingertips. —Superintendent Ben Dalton

Hoofbeats News from Bryce Valley High by John Cloud

This past week has been quite busy. The main event this week was State Track. We had many medalists, including Adam Plat in his runs, Lizzy Plat in her events, and Taryn plat with his races, and Emilee Courtright managed to take first across the state in the High Jump! We send her many congratulations! The Bryce Valley team also managed to take third in the Relay Medley. The Elementary had their Track Meet as well. The High Schoolers naturally had no school that day, due to the fact that so many were helping out with the meet itself and running the thing. Boredom set in for many, mainly those who were not somewhere else or helping out with the fundraiser, but there were more than a few students who spent the day working on and finishing

their Film Projects for history, an event which usually happens around twice a year in our school's history class. This assignment is only one of the major projects, almost all of which were due this past week, and, save for one or two for specific classes, these final projects are at an end! Many students have been protesting the sudden rush of huge assignments, and are more than glad that they have come to an end. Pride Points for our school, based on Participation in sports, coming to the Games and cheering, avoiding Detention, and your GPA, have also been totaled at last, to determine which two classes get to go on the Pride Point trip on Tuesday. The winners were the 9th grade for the High school group, and the 7th grade for

the "middle school" category. These students will be going to Fiesta fun with their advisors. Naturally, we older students are wishing we had been better at avoiding Detention in general. Another major event this week was the Dinner/Talent Show / Auction that was held on Friday at the high school. The point of the auction was to provide money to treat those with cancer in our area, and there was a very large attendance of this event. It began at six, and we hope those dealing with these problems can get some help from the prospects. The last week of school is next week, (now this last week as of publication) and the next crazy summer of work begins! John Cloud is a Junior at Bryce Valley High School.

Loa Elementary Snippets by Lisa Stevens

School is OUT! Graduation is over and the students are now enjoying the long fun-filled days of summer. Throughout the year Mrs. Wendy Potter’s 1st grade class worked on their 1st Grade Window books. Just before the last week of school the student published their books, “We can see how much we have improved,” said Mrs. Potter, “We wrote about our weekends, how to's, what we like and other things.” Con-

gratulations to the 1st grade authors! Thank you to the teacher who helped me with this article this year, I sincerely appreciate all the help I received. Also thank you to Carrie Brinkerhoff and Heather Trenka for sending me the names for student government and student of the month. This is my last article; my two years on community council are done and I want to thank everyone who

read this article and the support I have received, it has been fun! School is out for summer!! Watch out second we come!

This week is a monumental one in many aspects. Firstly, It is the deadline for all end-ofyear testing, and a relief for the students and teachers who have spent so much time preparing for the exams. The Seniors began this Important week on Tuesday with their Graduation Tea. The annual and traditional event is hosted by the business women of Southern Utah, and is a good way for the Senior students at PHS and their relatives to reflect on and celebrate. the memories that have taken place over the years. This week is also the last chance for the Track team at PHS to get in a few good practices before the state competition at BYU. After the months of hard work they have put into their team and themselves, they will travel to Provo on Thursday. In their final efforts to perfect their many talents, we wish them a final round of “good luck” in performing well and possibly bringing home another state championship. Core testing and Track, with all of their excitement and anticipation, are not the only things coming to an end this week. Friday marks a calendar date 13 years in the making- Senior checkout. With the even more impending day of the Graduation ceremony set for next wednesday, This week also holds a bit of finality in itself for the Seniors, as they begin handing in their books and cleaning out their lockers at PHS for the very last time. Now that we are on the subject of finality, it becomes apparent that after many crazy weeks, a few typos, and 34 Articles, we have come upon my last article. As I prepare to say goodbye to this newspaper and to PHS, I realize that there are too many thank-you’s for me to give before the time comes. Since this is my last article, I think I’ll use this opportunity to shorten that list a bit. Here are a few dedications and shoutouts to the teachers that helped make me who I am today. (If I miss anybody, you know where I live, and I will let you beat me up yourself.) Mr. Norris- 4th grade was a lot of fun, and I remember you as one of the first teachers that made me take education seriously. I also know you as a great track and cross country coach and a great motivator. Mr. Torgerson- 5th grade was a blast, and I can honestly say that I never had a dull moment in your class. You are one of the funniest guys I know, and I have no doubt that you will continue your success in brightening the days of young students while still making them learn. Mr. Craig Barney- 6th grade will always be a special year for me. It was the year i first decided that I liked to write and read. Thank you for being one of the first ( if not the first) to encourage me to write more. Your belief in an overweight 6th grade introvert to “become the next J.K Rowling” has always been an incentive to never stop learning. You were probably my favorite elementary school teacher. Mrs. Chid- Whether or not you really meant it when you said I was your favorite student, I took it to heart, and it made Middle school a lot of fun. Thank you for never being afraid to say what was really on your mind. Coach & Mrs. Frandsen You were dealt a hand of very rambunctious students, and held on. Thank you for not losing your touch. Mrs. Pollock- Though I only got the great opportunity to be taught by you for one year, I will always regard you as one of my favorite teachers. Your presence in the school was always warm and inviting, and is missed daily. I’m not sure if you

ever get tired of hearing about how much of an inspiration you are. If so, I’m sorry to tell you that the people of Panguitch Utah and Garfield Country will never cease to shout it from the rooftops. Thank you for being such a great mentor and example for students and teachers alike. Mr. Ryan Houston- I’m seriously going to miss hearing “ Shut Up, Donnie.” Everytime I walk past your classroom. The years in your classes have always been enlightening and very funny. Thank you for introducing me to debate and public speaking- I would not be the same person without those experiences. Mrs. Caine- “WOW!” Your energy is always inspiring and I have never once thought you don’t love what you teach and who you teach. Thank you for never being boring and always helping the students with their technology-related projects. Mrs. Bennett- I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I have learned the most valuable life-related knowledge from your classes.I mean, seriously, I never walked out of your class not feeling enlightened. You are a very thorough educator and a very good person. Thank you for never putting on a mask to hide your feelings and thank you for leaving me informed about the adult world. Mr. Bennett- As a counselor, you have done your duty very well. I think we both know that I have probably loaded you up with more questions than just about any other student at PHS this year. Your advice and assistance in Sterling Scholar made the experience much less stressful for me. Thank you for always being funny, understanding, and never hesitant to give me good advice. Lisa Johnson- I think we all know that you are really the force that keeps the school running (sorry, Mr. Q). I will sincerely miss your rich laughter and your smile each morning in the office. I will do my best to “Make your heart smile” In the future. Mr. Palmer- I only had your class for three quarters, but I will never forget it. I felt at times like I was taking an introductory Philosophy class as well as a mathematics course when I walked into your classroom. Thank you for your sincerity in your interest of our education, and your efforts to make math seem enjoyable. Mr. Perkins- Thank you for showing me that FFA is not about Farming only but about leadership as well. I have enjoyed talking to you in your classes. Mrs. Perkins- Music was so much fun this year! Thank you for believing in my ability and forcing us to work seriously as a choir. I learned many things in your class, and you always try hard to make sure we really grasp the concept of the subject. You are a good person and a good teacher. Mr. Quarnberg- The principal is a tough job, but somebody has to do it! You have done the job well, in my opinion. Thank you for working with the students and the student council to make this year and the years before it fun. Mrs. Baldwin- Your technical advice in drama has made me a better actor, and I thank you for that every important


knowledge. (Seeing as I am going to college on a theatre scholarship, it is VERY important knowledge) Mrs. Cheryl Church- I have loved every second of your classes, and will never forget your drama and life lessons. Along with being one of my favorite teachers, you are also one of my very favorite people. Please know that I am going to need your advice quite frequently as the years comeand will probably still want to receive teachings from “the church.” Mrs. Breinholt- Your “ Pitiful creatures” are all grown up! I cannot begin to express how excited I was when I heard that you were coming back this year. Your class has always been exciting and you never hesitated to let us speak our minds about a subject. I’m going to sincerely miss being your T.A., and getting your morning Diet Coke. I don’t think the Student council or the Sterling scholars would have made it through this year without your help.Thank you for being there whenever I needed English assistance, life advice, or a book to read. Mr. Frank Houston- Frank, You are my hero. That word gets thrown around alot in our world today,but I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart that you are MY hero. This chubby, lazy freshman would not have made it through Wrestling season or High school without you. Thank you for being my friend and never giving up on me. There were times over these past few years when I needed someone to believe in me- you were always there to fill that spot. There were also more than a few times when I needed a butt-kicking to get myself put together- and you were always there for that as well. Thank you for making me want to work harder in the wrestling room and in life. You are PHS’s resident tough-guy and moral coach. You have made me laugh, cry, and smile more than anybody else in this school. If you ever need anything in this life, please don’t hesitate to find me. Don’t ever stop being you, big guy- because you changed my life, and continue to change the lives of ethers around you. In closing, I would just like to say thank you To Lisa Breinholt ( My English Teacher) and Erica Walz from the Wayne and Garfield County Insider for allowing me to write newspaper articles for my school this yearit has been an amazing thing to take part in. If any of you readers forced yourself to make it though even one of my articles, or even refrained yourself from making fun of them, then I thank you as well. I would also like to thank my parents for putting up with me, and the community of Panguitch for being good neighbors and good people, and helping me to find my way in these first crazy years. I plan to attend USU eastern in the fall on a theater scholarship, and I intend to do great things that will make you all proud. Pub. note: Thank you, Donnie. It's been a pleasure receiving your contributions to the newspaper each week, which have been informative, entertaining and full of personality. The quality of your work is a positive reflection on your teachers, as well. I'm sure you are off to do great things! —EW

I'd like to thank ALL of our student (and adult!) columnists for their coverage of school events this year...Donnie Corwin for PHS Notebook, Maggie Ellett and Bethany Lamb for Wayne Sports, John Cloud for Bryce Valley Hoofbeats, Lisa Stevens for Loa Elementary Snippets, Ellen Fagergren & Kezli Floyd for Bryce Valley Elementary News, Crystal Mortensen for Bryce Valley Sports, Vickie Syrett for both reporting on and coordinating school submissions from Bryce Valley, Mack Oetting for PHS Sidelines, Tracy Albrecht for Hanksville Elementary students of the month...and sorry if I missed anyone! It will feel like an empty nest without you all for a while, and I look forward to next year's columns and columnists (but we won't think about that for a while, yet.) Have a great break and HAVE A GREAT SUMMER! —Erica Walz, The Wayne & Garfield County Insider

A gentle reminder that every Thursday at 7:00 P.M. the ARP-Addiction Recovery Program is held in Tropic at the churchhouse in the Relief Society Room. It is a 12 step program and can help you if you have or think you have a problem with an addiction. That would include substance abuse, alcohol, pornography, eating disorder, etc. It can also help you if someone else's addiction is affecting your life. Many who attend find that their addiction is not unique and can gain strength from others who struggle with the same or similar problems. ARP is an anonymous program and attendance and discussions are strictly confidential. On Saturday, 17 May, 60 women from Garfield and Kane counties attended a Daughters of Utah Pioneers Convention in Escalante. It was hosted by the Escalante Company. Guest visitors were ISDUP President, Maurine Smith, ISDUP Board member,

Helen Gee and Region Rep. SW Area, Mariana Taylor. They gave very interesting and sometimes humorous accounts of their DUP activities and their own life. Honored for their work for many years in the DUP were Barbara Talbot of Panguitch Garfield/Cornelia Loyhova DUP and Verene Tait of Kane/Fredonia DUP. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful musical number from Escalante Natives Quinn and Doneen Griffin. They sang a very touching song written by them, "Waltz on the Fifty" and were persuaded by the ladies to sing a second song. It was very entertaining and we could have listened for many more songs. Then a delicious luncheon was served by caterers from Wild West Retreat of Escalante. Drop in on them sometime and sample the good food. It was a wonderful meeting and we all went home with a wonderful souvenior favor of a hand made Scrubby from the Pahreah Camp done by Anita Fletcher, Ramona Morreale and Catherine Littlefield. Thanks Victory Crawford and all the ladies of her Camp for a wonderful Conference. There will be no more DUP meetings until September. Driving down the street I almost ran off the road when I noticed the old Sears Building on the corner was being torn down. It shocked me and the first thing I thought of was all the beautiful artwork and the long hours spent on it by Val

Kelly. I could not believe my eyes. I guess progress is at work but I keep thinking of the art work Val did and it makes me sad. In Tropic Ward today they released Earl Slack as the Assistant Scout Leader and called T. W. Carr as his replacement. Travis Le Fevere was released as the 11 year old Scout leader and Sam King took his place. The Beehive Presidency was reorganized with the new President being Madison Syrett, 1st Counselor, Makenna Syrett, 2nd Counselor, Addie Steele and Secretary is Oakley Pollock. The MIA Maids also changed officers with President being Elayna Le Fevre, 1st Counselor, Danielle Brinkerhoff, 2nd Counselor Ambree Leslie, and Secretary Katie Stewart. Taylor Talbot earned her Young Womanhood Recognition Award which is equal to the Eagle earned by the Boy Scouts. She is the daughter of Gerald and Shauna Talbot. Marty Rich and his lovely wife, Ethel were the speakers today. In Cannonville it was the Missionary Farewell for Tyler Hansen as he prepared to enter the MTC prior to his mission in Mexico - Mexico South. Speaking with him were Nathan Platt and Adam Platt. Adam too will soon be leaving on his mission. Michael Atwood was advanced to a Priest. He is the son of Shannon and Melanie Muir. In Henrieville the speakers were Max Stewart, son

A heads up on the fact that next week Henrieville will be getting a new Bishopric.

Kami Mortensen is looking for a babysitter. "I need a babysitter a couple days a week this summer. Mostly for Wednesday's and Thursday's, but I'm flexible. It would be from 8-5. Thanks:) I'm willing to transport from Henrieville or Cannonville if needed." Well graduation will be held this week and it is hard to believe that five months are already gone of this year. Unbelievable. Memorial Day is coming this weekend and it is time to once again honor our veterans and family members. We are so thankful for the military people and their willingness to help keep us safe and also other countries even if they don't appreciate it. We certainly do and want them to know that we love and pray for them each day. Please have a safe week and especially this weekend. If you have news you want in please call or email it to me. Thanks to you that take the time to do so. VS

TROPIC - On Friday may 9th Jana Jackson lead the Bryce Valley Elementary in a wonderful Mother's Day performance with music and dance stretching through the ages. Music has shaped so much of the history of this country and it was such a treat to hear the students singing songs that shaped several era's. From Hello My Baby, to Elvis and his Jailhouse Rock, Zipidy-Do-Da and the Chattanooga Train, the songs were sung from the heart of the students and their enthusiasm to perform was catching. There must be made mention of the incredible dancing that accompanied the songs. The students really came out of their shells to partner dance the two step, a little swing, and Jive! Each of them built up the capacity to sing and dance with excitement-no easy task! But they did an outstanding job moving to the steps and keeping a beat with snapping, clapping and singing. The theme running

through the program and narration was that music lifts us up out of our troubles! From the Great Depression we got big band/orchestra music, From the war torn 50's came Elvis and Rock and Roll, and with the 70's came happy songs that lift and help us. The brilliant summation of the concert eluded to the fact that these precious children are growing up in a challenging world, "with life moving by them at the speed of a train." and they will have to be strong and confident in themselves. The culminating song, Let it go from the hit

Disney movie, Frozen gave us new perspective on the quest of that song. These amazing youth will need to rise above so much to let their true selves shine through! And we caught a glimpse of that confidence as they raised the rafters with heart and soul. A huge thanks to Jana Jackson and the students for the inspirational gift they gave the mothers of Bryce Valley. Music makes such a difference in all our lives we are lucky to have this program at our elementary. —Mindy Grimshaw

that Beaver is going on a trek of their own, and our play will get them excited, help with expectations and hopefully will add to their enjoyment of their experience. My trip home from Seattle got delayed so I was not able to get the results of the state track meet in time to go to the publisher, PHS Struck gold at State with both the Boys and Girls coming away Champions. This is a three peat for the Girls and a second go around for the Boys. If I get any data by tomorrow I will get it in the paper. Stay Loose! Mack O.

Through modern technology I am writing this week's news letter in Seattle, Washington. We have three action packed days of non-stop touring. As starters we went to the University for our Granddaughter’s White Coat Ceremony. It signifies the transferring from science book work to clinical medicine. She will be spending the next two years going on rotation, 6 weeks at a time. Starting with surgery at the Veterans Hospital, then off to the Mental Hospital and so on. The next day we went to a 240 acre Arboretum; University of Washington Botanic Gardens, and then to a great Japanese garden. May is a perfect time for this because the flowers are all out and it is beautiful. The Arboretum has all kinds of giant Sequoia trees, what a great place to spend the day. Off to Pike’s Market for some shopping and finally a City tour on the local Ducks bus tours. It was a wonderful three days. The following weekend is Memorial Day and it comes early this year on May 26th. It starts on Friday, with the American Legion putting up the flags at the cemetery, down the main road and on all of the Veteran's graves. Saturday

The Wayne & Garfield County INSIDER

TORREY NEWZ by Adus F. Dorsey II

Evidence that it is an election year are popping up all over Wayne County. Wellplaced roadside campaign signs are beginning to occupy key areas along the Highway 24 corridor, like Loa’s MainStreet Business section, Lyman Lane, the confusing speed limit stretch from Lyman to Bicknell past Bruce’s Sawmill and the airport road, Bicknell’s 30 MPH (Thurber) four lane Main Street, then past Lee’s “Gas and Go” where it is 55 MPH through to the Community Center then 65 MPH past the Grist Mill and the Lodge buffalos to the Fremont river bottom where the speed limit drops to 55 and again to 35 right before entering Torrey. A speed limit feat so confusing and complex that only school bus driver Kevin Hatch knows how to make sense of it all, and he is surely the only person alive that knows what is daily happening on the highway between Torrey and Hanksville. Remembering to reset your cruise control at least six times between Loa and Torrey on Highway 24 is hard enough, but to add in two hundred bent-over campaign signs for who is running for County Attorney and the Wayne School Board will challenge the safest of Wayne

County drivers. Once the race for the open Wayne County Commissioners seats kicks in we are surely going to see an increase in local traffic tickets as we all try and navigate the law enforcement gauntlet by those sworn to serve and protect. Buckle Up and “May the Force be with You”. Not to be out done, Nycole Durfey, Wayne County Tourism Director received the blessing from UDOT (Utah Department of Transportation) to place an asphalt stamp on Main Street Torrey near the finish line to advertise the TOU (Tour of Utah) bike race on August 5th 2014. As you may remember the 2013 TOU hype elevated Torrey Town and Highway 12 as a World Wide bicycling destination, show casing southern Utah as a place to visit and see. Dedicated local volunteers are once again needed to make the 2014 TOU a Wayne County show case event. Contact Nycole Durfey via facebook or phone to volunteer. Be part of history, sign up to volunteer today. Capitol Reef National Park has kicked off the 2014 tourist season with a real bang, sponsoring many historical, cultural and outdoor events to honor the past and present local pioneers. Never would I be

so foolish as to think that after only 26 years living in Wayne County with no pioneer handcart lineage would make me a “local,” but from an informed outsider’s perspective I can attest to the fact that the most recent “open arm” acceptance and local historical embracement by the present Capitol Reef National Park Administration has had a very positive effect in the community known as Wayne County. To live together means to work together. Not to go without another mention the “Sleeping Rainbow” School of Music held a Violin Recital at the Wayne High School Auditorium on May 17th at two o’clock under the direction of instructor Lynsey Shelar, with piano accompaniment by Becky Pace of Teasdale, Utah.

Students Kenadie, Leavitt, Shayla Barlow, Kenna Stephenson, Adam Winters Vanessa Barlow, Breanna Winters and Hanna Williams perform their favorite tunes in front of a black tie audience. Refreshments of citrus water and homemade raisin, ginger snap cookies and fresh cut carrots were then served while parents and friends mingled and congratulated the outstanding young performers. It was a wonderful springtime Wayne County musical event had by all. Anyone missing a child’s black patent leather shoe should contact the Wayne High lost and found to reclaim the lost shoe. Please bring the matching shoe as proof of ownership.

Fence Lines

by Ray Conrad

For the Birds May 15, 2014 Birds can fly! I cannot! Where is the fairness in that? Each time I try to take to the sky I faw down and go ‘Splat!” I pay taxes. Birds do not. Not a good system for sure. Birds flit freely o’er pasture and rangeland. I stumble through the manure. Birds are too tiny to drive nice cars. They motate with their little wings. I ain’t seen birds that need to depend on fossil-fuel energy things. They just start flapping and off they go. The Koch Brothers must hate that. Conversely the Koch Boys are much too big to get whacked by the local cat. Birdies don’t really get toilet-trained well. At poop-time they just improvise. Good thing that birds ain’t as big as a horse. You might get a nasty surprise. I guess I’ll stop my whining now how jealous I am of some birdy, And I hope I have made no sense at all, and did it not being too wordy.
