UTAH 4-H TURNS 100 IN 2012
The year 2012 marks the centennial for Utah State University Extension 4-H, part of the nation’s largest youth development organization. The theme, “Celebrating the Past, Creating the Future,” will be integrated into 4-H events held around the state through the year. Widely known for its early roots in cooking and agriculture, 4-H has grown during the last century to include offerings such as rocketry, robotics and global positioning systems. The organization reaches every corner of the country with more than 6 million youths in urban neighborhoods, suburban schoolyards and rural farming communities and supports young people from elementary school through high school, according to 4-H.org. Head, heart, hands and health are the four H’s in 4-H and are the four values members work on while participating in the program. According to Kevin Kesler, USU Extension director of Utah 4-H programs, many people attribute their success to 4-H. “It is amazing how many people tell me they were in 4-H as a youth, and they then tell me how much 4-H contributed to their success in life,” he said. “We hope that the 4-H centennial events held around the state will provide an opportunity for 4-H alumni to come together and also to experience today’s 4-H program.” According to Kesler, there are approximately 8,000 volunteers in Utah working with more than 75,000 youths in the Utah 4-H Program. The 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development, conducted by the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University, shows young people involved with 4-H are nearly two times more likely to get better grades in school, nearly two times more likely to plan to go to college, 41 percent less likely to engage in risky behaviors and 25 percent more likely to positively contribute to their families and communities. The research-driven programming of 4-H allows young people to engage in issues from global food security, climate change and sustainable energy to childhood obesity and food safety, according to 4-H.org. Out-of-school 4-H programs, in-school enrichment programs, clubs and camps also offer a wide variety of science, engineering, technology and applied math educational opportunities. “Celebrating the Past, Creating the Future,” Utah 4-H’s state centennial celebration will be held Thursday, July 12, through Saturday, July 14, at Utah State University. Activities will include youth and adult workshops, youth contests, a 4-H alumni reunion, 4-H Hall of Fame awards, banquets, a barbecue on the quad, games, alumni contests and awards. Individual county events will also be held throughout the year. Contact specific county Extension offices for more information. Kesler said it is his goal that by the end of the 4-H centennial year, everyone in the state will know that 4-H is alive and well. “We invite everyone to join 4-H alumni and friends in ‘Celebrating the Past, Creating the Future,’” he said. For further information on Utah Extension’s 4-H centennial celebration, contact Kesler’s office at 435-7974444 or visit utah4h.org.

TRACTOR PULL AND VINTAGE CAR SHOW AT QUILT WALK FESTIVAL
Saturday, June 9, 2012 will be the date for the 2nd annual tractor pull. This year there will also be a Vintage Car show. All participants are invited to kick off the event with a parade at 10:00, then following the parade there will be our famous quilt walk races with a team of 7, walking on quilts, it takes a lot of co-
operation to get 7 people down main street walking on quilts! The Tractor Pull and Vintage Car Show at the Panguitch Rodeo grounds will be next. Both are free to the public. Tractor pulls are becoming a very popular event. A Tractor Pull is a contest between different classes of tractors, small engine, medium
engine, large engine and diesel engines. They pull a sled to see how far they can pull it. The farther you go the heavier it gets. It is mostly for antique tractors but if the modern day tractors want to do it they can. There is a fee for each time a tractor pulls. It is $5.00 for a member, $10.00 for non-member. Any one can
join and it is $35.00 for the year. Registration for the event will take place that morning at 8:00 a.m. at the city offices in Panguitch. Old Tractors and Vintage cars are welcome to participate in the parade also. Please call Wally Veater at 435-616-8376 or Joe Nay at 435-676-8034 for questions or additional information. It’s really fun to watch.

SUMMER READING As we start into the long summer break, I would like to encourage parents to allocate some time to have students read on a regular basis. It is very important that students in grades K-3 read out load to someone. For students in the upper grades, it is still important to designate a set amount of time for reading. As we test students at the end of the school year in reading, we find many of them will be on or above grade level. When students return in August, several will drop nearly a half of a reading level during the summer. Sometimes it takes until the middle of November to get these students back to where they were reading when they left in May. It would be very beneficial to have students continue to read during the summer to help prevent the regression in their reading proficiency. One great way to involve students in reading during the summer is to visit your local library. Find out more information on the “Dream Big” summer reading program at: http://library.utah.gov/programs/youth/summerReading.html Just as a point of information the next school board meeting is scheduled on June 14th in Bryce Valley. We will be closing this fiscal year budget and adopting the new budget for fiscal year 2013. --Superintendent Ben Dalton

Jory Owens is part of the Class of 2012 and I felt that I would put in some of his accomplishments. As a 9th grader Jory started his athletic career as a 79 lb wrestler, he never let his size slow him down. He took first place in Region his first year and it wasn’t till his junior year that he finally got his weight up to 105 lbs. Jory won 1A State, three years in a row, even though he moved up a weight class his senior year. These are some of Jory’s accomplishments: • Academic All State (2012) • Academic All Region (2012) • First PHS three times State Champion Wrestler • First PHS four times Region Champion Wrestler • 1A State Outstanding Wrestler for 2012 • 1A Region Outstanding Wrestler for 2010 • Outstanding Wrestler at Milford Wrestling Tournament (2009,2010,2012)

Jory maintained a 3.8 grade average all through high
school. Another year of sports has gone by and the Cats were outstanding. It started off with the Bob Cats winning the 1A State Baseball Championship. The Lady Cats captured the 1A State Championship in Cross Country. Lady Cats finished 5th at State in Volleyball and Coach Troy Norris was coach of the year. The Lady Cats after only winning 4 games all season long, the Basketball team came alive to finish 5th at State. The Bob Cats also had a good year finishing 5th in basketball at State. In track the Ladies placed 3rd and the Bob Cats finished a surprise 7th. I can’t wait till next year; the Cats didn’t lose many seniors and should have a great next year.

By Cynthia Kimball God’s mission for you may not include serving with another person. It may not be in a luxurious place with see through ocean water in tropical weather. It may not be when you want it. It may not even include your chosen time length either. And you might not be provided with an official missionary name tag. It might be when you are right in the middle of a bunch of things. But this cannot matter because you are not in charge. He is. So when He calls you, you thank Him for the mission you are going on, because it’s a compliment that He has chosen you, and you serve, serve, serve, like nobody’s business. So if God calls you on a mission to an ER room, for instance, you need to serve even if you are in pain. And when you are in the ER room, for example, you need to share the gospel with as many people as you can. Bring the spirit with you so that others can feel it and want to ask you about it. One time, when this happened to me, I had an opportunity to ask everyone that was working on me if they would pray for me. And the answer I got was an astounding, “Yes!” One person, even, came back later to check on me. “Just wanted to see how you were doing,” he asked. “Doing great, thanks, and it was because of your prayers.” “Thank you. I always
God’s Mission for You Might Not Be What You Would Have Designed, But It’s What You and Others May Need
pray. I’ve got to run, but I just wanted to make sure you were okay.” “I am. Thank you once more.” “You bet.” On this same occasion, I had a roommate in a hospital. She was coughing real badly on the other side of the curtain. “Hi, my name’s Cynthia. Are you okay over there?” “Oh, yes, I am, thank you,” said this hoarse voice, “My name’s Lori.” And then our friendship just kept blossoming. The cool thing about meeting Lori was that she had once had the gospel in her life, but had been inactive for years. So, guess what we talked about? Yup, the gospel. She told me how she loved teaching Primary and being a member of the church. And when she spoke she smiled and was filled with the spirit. Lori was in the hospital for a possible heart condition. She was to have an angiogram where doctors go up through an artery in the groin to the heart to make sure there are no blockages. And Lori was real scared about this so I posed a question to her. “Lori, would you like a priesthood blessing before your angiogram?” “Oh, I’d love one, Cindy,” she replied with a huge smile of gratitude. After Lori received her blessing she said, “I feel at peace, I feel comforted and I am now ready for my sur-
gery.” And then Lori slept soundly that night before her angiogram. So remember, the next time Heavenly Father calls you on a mission, in might be in the form of an illness, a hospital visit, an accident, loss of a family member, out of gas somewhere, the end of a relationship, etc. God’s missions are uniquely designed for you to grow and perhaps another person or persons. But before you curse Him because it’s not “a good time” to go on a mission or it’s “not the trial you would have ordered” make sure to express your gratitude that He chose you and work to look for the blessing or blessings that will come and even how you can bless others through that trial. When you do this, even if the outcome isn’t what you pray for, He will use you again, and again, and again, because you were loyal and faithful to Him. Best yet, He will pour blessings out to you. And you will find them, as long as you are looking. They might not be what you would have ordered. But make sure to look because they are there.

FIRST DAY OF PSYCHIATRY CLASS
Psychiatry students were in their Emotional Extremes class. “Let’s set some parameters,” the professor said. “What’s the opposite of joy?” he asked one student. “Sadness,” he replied. “The opposite of depression?” he asked another student. “Elation,” he replied. “The opposite of woe?” the professor asked a young woman from Texas. The Texan replied, “Sir, I believe that would be giddyup.”
STUCK IN AN ELEVATOR
The elevator in our building malfunctioned one day, leaving several of us stranded. Seeing a sign that listed two emergency phone numbers, I dialed the first and explained our situation. After what seemed to be a very long silence, the voice on the other end said, “I don’t know what you expect me to do for you. I’m a psychologist.” “A psychologist?” I replied. “Your phone is listed here as an emergency number. Can’t you help us?” “Well,” he finally responded in a measured tone. “How do you feel about being stuck in an elevator?”
LATE TO SCHOOL
The father said, “My son used to be late to school every day. I fixed that when I bought him a used car!” “Now, he is there early every day, to get a parking spot!”
I was in small-claims court when I listened in on the case of a woman who held a good job but still had trouble paying her bills on time. “Can’t you live within your income?” asked the judge. “No, Your Honor,” she said. “It’s all I can do to live within my credit.”
ASK A SPECIALIST: Beef: Should it be What’s for Dinner?
Beef has been targeted as a protein source that is high in fat. Because of this, some consumers feel they should limit its consumption or not eat it at all. However, there are ways to prepare beef that minimize added fat. In addition, some cuts of beef are no higher in fat than other “lean” meats such as poultry and fish. It’s important to take a closer look at beef in order to make informed decisions about including it in the diet. In addition to being a good source of iron and zinc, it is also a good source of B vitamins, selenium and phosphorus. With that said, how does it stack up in calories and in vitamin/mineral density per serving? Consider this dietary information from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service. • Protein - A 3-ounce serving of lean beef provides 51 percent of the body’s daily requirement of protein for a 2,000-calorie diet. It is especially important for periods of rapid growth, such as childhood, adolescence and during pregnancy. Other good sources of protein include eggs, nuts, soy and dairy products. But protein is only one of several nutriThe graduating Wayne High School Class of 1962 held a 50th year reunion on May 27, ents obtained from beef. 2012, at the Lodge near Lyman, Utah to enjoy the milestone.

Three ounces of lean beef contain 154 calories and 38 percent of the body’s requirement for zinc. It would take 13½ 3-ounce servings of salmon to get the same benefit of this mineral.

One day, Bill and Tom went to a restaurant for dinner. As soon as the waiter brought out two steaks, Bill quickly picked out the bigger steak for himself. Tom wasn’t happy about that: “When are you going to learn to be polite?” Bill: “If you had the chance to pick first, which one would you pick?” Tom: “The smaller piece, of course.” Bill: “What are you complaining about? The smaller piece is what you got, right?”
• B-Vitamins – These are key nutrients in turning food into energy. Beef is a major supplier of B-vitamins including riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and vitamin B-12. Besides their role in energy production, each B vitamin has its own unique function. For example, B-12 works closely with Folate in forming red blood cells, and it maintains normal functioning of the nervous system. To get the benefits of these vitamins provided by a 3-ounce serving of beef, the following equivalents would be necessary: Vitamin B12- 7 ½ (3-ounce) servings of chicken breasts equaling 1,050 calories; Riboflavin would require 4 ½ (3-ounce servings) of white tuna meat that would come in at 491 calories; and Vitamin B6 would require consumption of 6 ½ cups of raw spinach to equal the same vitamin value found in beef. • Selenium – Selenium is an antioxidant that works with vitamin E to help prevent damage to your body’s cells. Recent studies have found adequate intake of selenium may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer. Three-ounces of lean beef
contain 26 percent of the daily requirement for this nutrient. • Phosphorus – This nutrient helps build strong bones and teeth. A 3-ounce serving of beef contains 20 percent of the daily requirement for phosphorus. To select the most beneficial cuts of beef, choose 3-ounce serving sizes that start with 4 ounces of raw beef. Look for beef labeled with the “USDA Select” grade. It’s lower in fat and calories than “Choice” or “Prime.” Trim fat before cutting beef into strips for stir-fry or cubes for kabobs. Use low-fat cooking methods such as broiling, roasting on a rack, grilling, braising or stewing. Remove excess fat from stews, soups and casseroles by chilling them and skimming the hardened fat from the top. If you’re in a hurry, use a baster to remove surface fat. Cook with fresh ingredients that do not contribute extra fat such as hot and sweet peppers, onion, garlic, tomatoes and fresh herbs. Eating beef can be a healthy addition to any diet. Keep in mind the excellent nutritional value of beef, then concentrate on healthy ways to purchase, prepare and serve it.

TORREY NEWS The start of Memorial Day Week-end certainly was made memorable by the Wayne County wind. Some early morning motorist at mile marker 69, at Rich Cropper’s place, almost found themselves buried by a falling tree that ended up closing the highway. This is the second time in almost as many weeks that Rich has found himself up before breakfast and out in the middle of the road with his long bar Husqavarna chainsaw. Lucky enough, the Teasdale “McCartney’s” were in the line of backed up traffic and jumped right in to help clear the highway with their heavy duty Ford 350, as did some locals and many willing visitors wanting to get on their way. In impressive fashion with all the help from visiting and local volunteers, and quick action from the Torrey Town Maintenance Department, Highway 24 was re-opened to the Memorial Day traffic in record time. Anyone needing extra firewood should contact Rich Cropper. On the 24th of May, Torrey’s own renowned “House Band” the Adaptor’s made their debut on stage at the Saddelery. Jan Stringham was so deck out in his new mail order duds from Rockmount western wear that some folks mis-

took him for George Strait and were asking for his autograph. The Adaptors, with Jan Stringham on lead guitar and vocals, Bernie on bass and vocals, Lynsey Shelar on fiddle and Tys Winkle on the drums continue to rise to any occasion when there is music to be played. As is always the case The Adaptor’s make it a special point to advertise well and thank all the locals that consistently come out to support them. The Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival in Torrey weathered the Memorial Day wild weather on Saturday the 26th of May, as did the first Farmers Market for 2012 at the Robbers Roost Bookstore. Although Jen Howe was unwilling to relinquish ownership of her first tomato of the season some local farmers were more forthcoming with their bounteous early harvest and hand made crafts. Steve Wesson, the famous Salt Lake City based bassist came to Torrey on a visit with Rex Seabury over the Memorial Day week-end. Steve has been along time fixture in the Utah music scene and is in class all his own. Over the years Steve has played with bands such as the Oquirrh Ridge Drifters, Obadiah’s Outlaws, Smith and Wesson, The infamous Mountain Dogs and
Oh, the silly, insulting and downright rude places you can go! These town names made us snicker like middle schoolers. Here’s a quick look at how Tightwad, Middelfart, and others got their names Tightwad Missouri Chances are you don’t know anyone who lives in Tightwad (population: 64), but you could probably name a few cheapskates who should. As the story goes,in the early 1900s the postmaster of this town southeast of was cheated in a watermelon deal at the local store. Out of spite, he took advantage of his postmaster privilege and renamed the town Tightwad. The main attraction here is Tightwad Bank, which happens to be FDIC insured and classified as “well capitalized.” Proof that these 64 Tightwaders are still penny-pinchers? Honorable Mentions: Dollarbeg, Scotland; Pennyhill, Delaware; Money, Mississippi. No Name, Colorado When you live in a desolate unincorporated community between No Name Canyon and No Name Creek, apparently you accept your destiny of sharing the same name—or lack thereof. No Name, nearGlenwood Springs, got its name after Interstate 70 was built. A Department of Transportation official noticed that the area didn’t have a name and wrote “No Name” for Exit 119, the ramp accessing the community. It drew some attention for its absurdity, locals started to accept it, and it stuck. Later, when given the opportunity to change No Name to a proper name, the community chose to remain nameless. Honorable Mentions: Why, Arizona; Whynot, Mississippi Hell, Cayman Islands If you haven’t already been to Hell and back, head for West Bay on Grand Cayman Island. You can take a picture with the devil-disguised owner of Hell’s souvenir shop and send a wish-you-were-here postcard from Hell to family and friends. Don’t miss seeing the jagged black limestone formations that earned this tourist village its name. Most accounts recall someone saying, “This is what hell must look like.” Luckily, this one is in a tropical paradise. Honorable Mentions: Hell, Michigan; Little Heaven, Delaware; Convent, Louisiana Elephant Butte, New Mexico One of the country’s best forks in the road has to be in southwest New Mexico, where your choices are either Elephant Butte or Truth or Consequences. Tough call. Do you head for a herd of escaped circus performers, or do you take the double dare? Actually, the name Elephant Butte refers to a volcanic cone island (loosely resembling the animal’s silhouette) in the middle of a reservoir that is the largest lake in the state and a favorite vacation spot. Honorable Mentions: Monkeys Eyebrow, Kentucky; Lizard Lick, North Carolina Crapstone, England After downing the Leg O’ Mutton, it looks like you’ll make it three fourths of a kilometer before you’ll need to hit a toilet. Hopefully, you’ve got both mint sauce and granny’s Imodium in the glove box. The consensus in the small country village of Crapstone is that there’s no vile history behind the name’s origin. Crapstonites speculate it has something to do with rocks or the soil. Still, when ordering things by phone, these residents on the southeastern edge of Dartmoor have to answer the inevitable address question: “Yes, that’s right, c-r-a-p, as in crap.” Honorable Mention: North Piddle, England
many more. A local outdoor holiday barbeque favorite that is not generally enjoyed until closer to July, instead of Memorial Day, is the, avocado, onion, bacon and cheese, half pound locally grown ground beef “cotton burger”. Most of the ingredients you can get form Joe at Royals Market in Loa. The cotton can be obtained just about any where in Torrey. All you have to do is leave your back door open during dinner preparation or check your barbeque to often. The white fuzz from the famous cottonwood trees in Torrey magically attaches itself to just about everything this time of year. The old timers say it adds roughage to any meal and aids in digestion. Wayne High held their 2012 Graduation on the 25th of May. Proud parents and friends filled the auditorium, lucky enough there was plenty of tissue to go around. Many of the graduating students left early Saturday morning for a church history trip to experience important sights along the Mormon Pioneer Trail and other significant Historical Church locations. In what became a major mile stone for Wayne County and the Wayne High Class of 2012, Nellie Wilkins graduated. From the first day I met Nellie at the Wayne Middle School in Bicknell, and she smiled at me from her motorized wheel chair, I knew I had a friend forever. In what became a seven year friendship of smiles and excitement at seeing each other, I have had the wonderful opportunity to watch Nellie influence me as well her generation, and just as many Wayne County citizens. Congratulations Nellie and Thank You so much for helping me be a more understanding and enlightened human being. Memorial Day celebrations continued through-out Wayne County, Utah State and the United States of America over the weekend. Folks from faraway braved the weather to come and decorate the graves of Veterans and loved ones. American flags were in abundance reminding us all of the sacrifice and service of those that came and have went before us. Our freedoms are not free, everything comes at a cost, we all have a voice and a vote, use them wisely.

And was never happier than when he was spending time with his family. They were his life! To Tom there was “no such thing as a stranger”… he was beyond sociable and made friends everywhere he went. He was a peace maker, his love was unconditional. And for him, forgiveness came easy. He never complained and his daily motto was : I’m just happy to be here!

WHY YOUNG WORKERS SHOULD CARE ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY By Mickie Douglas
Summer will be here before we know it. That means millions of high school and college students will be searching for jobs. Whether a new worker is beginning the career of a lifetime or just earning some extra money for the school year to come, there is one question that is likely to be on each new worker’s mind when they see their first pay stub: Where’s the rest of my money? Generally, employers are required to withhold Social Security and Medicare tax from a worker’s paycheck. The amounts you pay in Social Security and Medicare taxes are matched by your employer. Usually the money that is withheld is referred to as “Social Security taxes” on the employee’s payroll statement. Sometimes the deduction is labeled as “FICA taxes,” which stands for Federal Insurance Contributions Act.
So let us tell you how that money is being used, and what’s in it for you. The taxes paid now translate to a lifetime of protection, when you eventually retire or if you become disabled. In the event that you die young, your dependent children and spouse may be able to receive survivors benefits based on your work. Today you probably have family members — grandparents, for example — who already enjoy Social Security benefits that your Social Security taxes help provide. You may be a long way from retirement now, so you may find it hard to appreciate the value of benefits that could be 40 or 50 years away. But consider that your Social Security taxes could pay off sooner than you think. Social Security provides valuable disability benefits — and studies show that a 20-year-
old has about a three in 10 chance of becoming disabled sometime before reaching retirement age. Another bit of helpful advice for young workers: be wary if you’re offered a job “under the table” or “off the books.” If you work for any employer who pays you only in cash, understand that you’re likely not getting Social Security credit for the work you’re doing. Want to learn more about Social Security and what it means to young workers? If so, we invite you to enjoy a webcast: Social Security 101: What’s In It For Me? The webcast will fill you in on the details you should know to get the most out of Social Security. Check it out at www.socialsecurity. gov/webinars/social_security_101.html. If you have questions about Social Security, the best place to go is online — to www.socialsecurity.gov.

Marlene Haws Ph: 826-4859 • email@example.com First of all I have an apology to make to Peggy Soren. At our last D.U.P. meeting someone told me she had recently had hip surgery. Not so! She has had that surgery done but it was in 1994 or did she say 1995? Anyway she and her family had a good laugh about it. I am sooo glad they found humor in it and didn’t get mad. Thanks to them for being good sports! I am sorry! Quite a few of our residents have been on the sick list lately. Hopefully they are all on the mend. Danny Spencer has been in and out of the emergency room and hospital. First with a bleeding ulcer then with nose bleeds. They hope his problems have stabilized and we hope that is true too. Tommy Alvey has made a trip or two to the hospital also. The last time being with pneumonia. As hard as that is on the patients it is also hard on the caregiver, so we can all sympathize. Rolain Alvey has been busy visiting her doctors. We all hope her reports were good. Tionna Miller spent a couple of days in the hospital but is home now on bed rest until her new baby gets here. Word was received by McKay and Rose Bailey that Terrill (McKay’s brother) and Koleen Bailey’s 20 year old grandson, Cody, has had his leg amputated. He has been treated for cancer in it for some time but finally had to have an amputation. His mother and father are Terrie and Adrian Clarke of Henderson, Nevada. We wish Cody the best. Yukon Norman is home again after spending a few weeks with her daughter, Lana Roberts, in Redmond. She was anxious to get home to see the improvements Bill and Linda Overall had made at her home. It’s lookin’ good! The new city council member is Louise Barnes. She has lived here quite a long time now and has always attended city meetings and been pretty civic minded so she should be good on the council. A surprise 80th birthday party was held for Lane Liston last Saturday. His and Geraldine’s whole family was here for the occasion, with the exception of their son Gary and his daughter Sharla, who both had other obligations in Arizona and couldn’t get away. Lot’s of friends and family were there to wish Lane a “Happy Birthday” and nobody went away hungry! It was a very pleasant afternoon. Gloria Porter was at the party. She has graduated to a cane now and is doing
better all the time. There was a Mother’s Tea at the school last week. Three lady teachers were honored there. Sue Bassett and Marlene Dunn, who are both retiring, and Amanda Johnson who will be leaving. It is always hard to lose good teachers, but we wish all of them the very best. I’m sure our children will miss them. A play was presented by the Escalante High School students. The name of it was “Grease.” I didn’t get to attend, much to my dismay, but I hear it turned out great. Congratulations to them and their teachers who helped with it. Deon and Arnold Alvey went to Loa to visit with their daughter Janeen Duncan and family and to pick up some plants from the greenhouse. Now they may have to raise all those plants in the house if it doesn’t warm up soon. Last week the temperatures were in the 80’s, this week they have been down to near freezing again! The Alvey’s daughter, Denice, and her husband, Andy Dube, came from Las Vegas to spend the weekend with them. They don’t get to come very often so it was good to see them again. Taylor Lynn Porter, daughter of Clint and Shanna Porter, Cedar City, graduated from high school with her class and also received an award for “Athlete of the year” in the girls division. Congratulations Taylor, now your next task will be to sew all the buttons back on your dad’s shirt! Martha Schow has had her friend, Glenna Ridge from West Jordan, visiting her for a few days. I heard them say Martha hadn’t baked banana bread yet while Glenna is here but she could probably find some in the freezer! Alvin and Joan Cowles, Richfield, spent the weekend with Margean Schow. Don and Lillian Coleman report that their granddaughter, Candy and Alan Garcia and family, Tooele, paid them a visit last week. Candy has been going to school and by December, if all goes well, she will be a full fledged registered nurse. Congratulations to her. Well done Candy! (She is the daughter of Joyce and Danny Rollins.) Many, many people came “back home” for the Memorial weekend. Loreta Shurtz, who is now 94 years old, came “home” again. Her children always see to it that she gets here for Memorial Day. I visited with her children at the play: Ivan Shurtz, Don Shurtz and Dorothy Cowles. They said Gordon was here too and Virginia may have been but I didn’t see her.
Lynn and Garna McInelly, Beaver, Donna Rae Barker, Monroe and Valerie Davies, Aurora, came to town and brought their mom, Mary Ellen Coleman, with them. They are good to see that she gets back once in a while too. Jim and Lola Alvey and Steve and LaVee Wiscombe were here from Mapleton. Steve and Beth Blakey, came from Springville and the Blakey’s were the speakers in the First Ward Sacrament Meeting on Sunday. Beth said her mom, Eva Dean Liston, sent a message to all her friends here that she loves and misses all of them. They are hoping to be able to bring her down for a visit before long. Jimmy and Amy Alvey spend a lot of time here with the Meisenbach’s. They live in Mapleton. Jimmy is Jim and Lola Alvey’s son and Amy is Johnny and Peggy Meisenbach’s daughter. They love it here! Jim and Evelyn (Lyman) Corning have had a big crowd at their home. (They bought the Hal Shurtz home). Most of the Randal and Gwen Lyman family have been here for a Lyman family reunion. It is always so nice to see these families that you don’t get to see that often. It looks like Dick and Mary Lyman may have made it back in time to fill their motel for the weekend. Ron and Linda Mecham and their daughter, Heather, came from Las Vegas for the weekend. They divided their time between the Hawses, Alvey’s and Liston’s. Janice and Dean Gledhill had their son, Gary, daughter Rochelle, and their families here. I think they also celebrated a birthday for one of them on Saturday. Brent and Patrice Cottam and Myron and Sanette Cottam had their families here. They, along with Doyle Cottam and the family of Karen and Sherrill Ott, Tropic, joined together for a family reunion dinner at Tropic Reservoir one day. Chad and Jordon Cottam are home from Wyoming and it sounds like they are settled in Cedar City for a while. Jared and Heather Dunton had part of Jared’s family here on the weekend. Heather says they don’t get together that often, so that was nice! Carol and Russell Sorensen, St. George, were at the home of Pratt and Arcola Gates and Jared Smith and family visited Jareds’s mother, Margo Smith. All of them made a trip to the Hole In the Rock. Tracie Robison visited her mom, Dixie Mitchell, and Whitney Brooks visited
her parents, Jay and Derlynne Brooks. I visited briefly with Nickie and Evan Excell and Brian and Sue Lynn Griffin at church. I also visited with Marty and Debbie Vidrine. Bill Vidrine was with them at the play the night before. Vernon and Peg Roundy had their family here as did Gene and Renon Reed. Wayne and Venid Bailey were here from Salt Lake and were supposed to meet Flora Marchant and part of her family here. I hope they made connections. It would have been fun to see all of them. The Leland Porter Reunion was well attended. They had dinner and a reunion program at the church on Saturday morning, then met at the home of Ben and Renee Porter that evening (Probably to eat the left-overs from the meal earlier). Then had dinner at the home of DeLane Griffin after church on Sunday. If being well fed makes for a happy family we should all be the happiest people in the world! I would guess that, as a whole, the celebration on Saturday was a great success, in spite of the windy weather. The play, “Sawdust Memories,” all about the Escalante sawmills over the years, was well done (written by Quinn Griffin). Mary Steed Shumway and her sons were honored at the end for all their efforts in keeping their sawmill going for so many years, after the death of their husband and father, Paul Steed. The many jobs they provided have been sorely missed. No reports on anything else but everyone seemed to be having a good time. I hate to end on a sad note but we need to express our condolences to Dennis Lott and family whose brother Don passed away at his home in Taylorsville on May 22, 2012.
ARBOR DAY CELEBRATION
Paula Pace, Town Clerk Torrey Town celebrated Arbor Day on April 27, 2012 by planting twenty four trees at the Torrey cemetery and along main street Torrey. The trees selected to plant at the cemetery were Purple Ash, and along main street Fremont Cotton less Cottonwoods were planted to maintain the pioneer tradition of our existing trees planted so many years ago. Trees that had to be removed that were diseased and dying were replaced with new trees, which will eventually give the same beautiful look that now exists on Torrey,s main street. We also celebrated becoming a “Tree City U.S.A.”following the guidelines of the Arbor Day Foundation, and the Division of Natural Resources for planting new trees, and nurturing and caring for them, and the trees that are already in our Town. In the past two years our town has planted thirty nine trees that we will be caring for, giving the beauty and benefits that trees give back to our community. The Division of Natural Resources has a quote that is so true: “The best time to plant a tree was 20-years ago. The second best time is now.” Torrey Town is committed to that motto, and plans to nurture and care for our trees, and next Arbor Day plant more, and hopefully we will have families join us as we did this year, teaching their children the value of planting trees. We also had three woman from the Czech Republic, traveling through the national parks, seeing our posters on Arbor Day, come and helped us plant trees. Thank you for all the volunteers and our dedicated town maintenance men who dug holes and put the drip systems to our trees. Cake and ice cream was served at our park pavilion after the trees were planted, which we feel completed the Arbor Day celebration.

FYI PANGUITCH By: Mack Oetting ~ E-mail: mackoetting @gmail.com It seems to always snow on the LDS Conference weekend and the Easter Egg hunt is always on the coldest day of the year, well its Memorial Day weekend and the wind is blowing as usually. It blew so hard on Friday that we weren’t able to put up the flags on the road into the cemetery. The cemetery looks beautiful, the lawns were manicured and the flags on the Veterans graves really added to the beauty. Many thanks to all of you who took part in putting up the flags and maintaining the cemetery. Thanks to those that reported to us about the graves that didn’t have markers on them, I believe that we picked up six more Veterans to honor. The wind does serve a purpose; it makes the flags look good. The Class of 2012 had their graduation last Thursday evening and it was delightful. Normally the school gives out the scholarships at the awards assemble, but they did it at the Commencement Ceremony. Thousands of dollars in scholarships were awarded; the students would like to thank all the Businesses, Clubs and Personal Awards that were handed out. This is a very bright class and they are the future of Country. The first Annual Panguitch Western Round-up on Saturday, was a huge success, with a lot of good deals that were picked up at the Garage Sale that started the day off. There were book signings and gun fights and a lot of excitement all day long. The day finished off with the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, at the Gem Theater. It was good for the downtown businesses and many of the Motels in town had no vacancy signs up. I hope this will be an on going event each year, Memorial weekend kicks off the summer and there are a lot of tourists in our area. We have a new – old business in town: SMOKIN’ HOT ANTIQUES+ COLLECTABLES AT THE OLD FIRE HOUSE. Carletta Johnson, who has been the proprietor at the Three Bee’s store for the last seven years, now has her own store in the Old Fire House. Carletta is a delightful young lady, who has all sorts of fun stuff in her store. She buys, sells and trades in the antique business. If you need a special piece for your house or a gift for a friend stop by and visit with Carletta and if she doesn’t have it she will find it for you. Her energy will rub off on you; even if you don’t need anything stop by a visit. How busy was Bryce Canyon on the day of the Eclipse, on a normal day they move 2000 passenger and on a busy day about 3,000. That Sunday they moved 9,500 people and with a astronomy night show, the drivers didn’t finish till 1:00 am in the morning. There will be another solar event on June 5, the planet Venus will pass in front of the sun, sometime during the daytime, I don’t know what time that will be, but watch the news. Have you checked out the Fish on top of the Court House? Take a pair of binoculars with you and see what a work of art the fish is, it looks like it just came out of the Lake. The cement is finished and it looks like the lawn is ready to be laid. I think that the exterior is finished and now the fun begins with the interior, it’s always the slow part of any job. The Lions Club did their semi annual road clean up last Wednesday and with the help of the FCCLA club it went pretty fast. With all of the help that the High School kids have been with highway cleanups this year they have learned a good lesson. It is not fun picking up someone else’s trash. Next week will start the Quilt Walk Festival on Thursday the 7th. This will be the 15th year for this event. The Quilt classes will run Thursday thru Saturday and will have instructors from all over the Country teaching the latest Quilting techniques. The Play starring myself will be the evening fare, with a new twist the food will be prepared in Dutch ovens and will be very tasty. Saturday morning will be the Panguitch Lions Club first breakfast for the summer, it’s all you can eat, pancakes, eggs, sausage and bacon, my favorite. There will be a tractor parade and they will go down to the fair grounds for a good old tractor pull. The kids will have a quilt race, where there will be prizes for the winners. I forgot! The Chocolate Fest is on Wednesday night. It is a chocolate lovers delight. Agriculture water will start on June 4th, be sure that you check with the City for when it’s your turn. The blocks will run west to east for the water, this system worked well last year giving you more water pressure, instead of quadrants like in the past. I hate to report that Panguitch is losing two very bright young people in our school system, Tasha Barnes and Lark Reynolds. Tasha Barnes was a 5th grade teacher, she has earned the respect of her fellow educators and the children loved her. When the school board cut her position, she applied and got a teaching job in Duchene. Good luck to you Ms. Barnes, you will be a success anywhere you go and it will be a terrible loss for the students in our school. Lark Reynolds, Garfield County School District Business Manager will be going North. Lark along with Janis Hatch bailed out the district from what could have been bankruptcy. They did it by long hours and a lot of know how and sweat. Pat, our Daughter Shawn and Granddaughter Teah are going down to Mexico to visit the family that Teah lived with for 6 months while she learned Spanish. I am staying home to pay the ransom. So if there isn’t a column next week it’s because I couldn’t figure out how to send it off. Pray for rain! Mack O.
TREATING MINOR EAR PROBLEMS Earwax Impaction Many people equate earwax with dirt, using cotton-tipped swabs or applicators (e.g., Q-tips) to remove every trace after morning showers. They perceive the brown stain on the cotton applicator as successful dirt removal. However, removing earwax every day is actually dangerous. Earwax helps fight bacterial ear infections and protects the inside of the ear. Removing it can make you more prone to swimmer’s ear and other ear infections. Earwax moves outward naturally as your jaw moves. Using cotton-tipped swabs can disrupt the normal outward movement, creating a hard clot of impacted earwax. Impacted earwax can cause reduced hearing, a feeling of fullness in the ears, itching in the ear, or ringing in the ear. Dangerous or Ineffective Earwax Removal Techniques To prevent ear injury, never insert any device in the ears to remove earwax. Home use of oral irrigators (i.e., Waterpik or other flossers) can rupture your eardrum. You may also see ads for hollow, wax-soaked cloth tubes called ear candles, available at health food stores, pharmacies, and hundreds of Internet sites. Ear candles are advertised to remove earwax when they are inserted into your ear and set on fire. However, they do not work, and physicians find that the burning wax from the candle can enter the ear and cause burns or even a hole in your eardrum. They should never be used, under any circumstances. Safe Earwax Removal Several legitimate products remove impacted earwax safely at home, such as Debrox, Mack’s Wax Away, and Murine for Ear Wax Removal System. They all contain carbamide peroxide. It is similar to hydrogen peroxide placed on a skin wound, in that it releases oxygen when it is placed in the ear. The foaming action gently causes the earwax impaction to loosen, so it can be washed out. Earwax removal products are only for those over the age of 12 years. They should not be used if you have ear drainage or discharge, ear pain, irritation or rash in the ear, or an injury or perforation of the eardrum. They should also not be used if you feel dizzy or have recently had ear surgery. To use the products, lie on the bed with one ear pointed upward. Place 5 to 10 drops of the solution into the upward ear and allow it to remain for several minutes. Then gently wash the ear with warm water from an ear syringe (supplied with some of the packages). This can be repeated twice daily for up to 4 days if needed. If excessive earwax remains after this, you should consult a physician. Always remember that the proper way to clean the ears is to use a wet washcloth over your finger during your morning shower. Remember, if you have questions, Consult your Pharmacist.

GARKANE THANKS ITS CONSUMER/MEMBERS FOR PATIENCE & UNDERSTANDING DURING PRE-ARRANGED OUTAGES
Garkane Energy would like to thank its consumer/ members for their patience and understanding during the two WAPA Pre-arranged power outages during April and May. These two outages were necessary for the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), at Glen Canyon to do the necessary work to install a backup transformer to feed Garkane’s transmission line out of the dam. This back-up transformer will provide Garkane consumers/members with greater reliability out of Glen Canyon in case of a transformer malfunction or failure. This installation also provides Garkane a redundant transformer for backup at Glen Canyon. Areas that were affected include: All of Kane and Garfield counties (except Antimony and Panguitch),
and Northern Arizona, (except Colorado City and Hildale). We also thank all law enforcement, hospitals, telephone entities, and Churches for their assistance in spreading the word and for their patience and understanding during the two pre-arranged outages, which both ran from midnight, Saturday Night (12:00 a.m.) to approximately 6:00 a.m Sunday Morning (6 hours total) both days (April 15th and
May 20th). During these two WAPA outages Garkane crews werer able to work on a variety of projects throughout the system that needed to be accomplished, which could only be done when the power was out. These pre-arranged outages serve as a reminder to our consumer/members to always be prepared for a power outage by choosing an easily accessible closet or cupboard for an emergency supply of flashlights,
batteries, and other needed items. If you have access to the internet through a cell phone during an outage – please go to Garkane’s website at: GarkaneEnergy. com or “like us” on facebook and we’ll keep you up-to-date on information about the outage, i.e estimated outage time frame, cause of the outage, and restoration efforts.

OBSERVING THE VENUS TRANSIT
By Kate Magargal Remember back in June 2004, when TV news stations paused their usual coverage to broadcast a rare astronomical event? TV personalities sat quietly as we watched our sister-planet move between us and the sun. It was a Venus transit, the first such event to occur since the invention of television. Venus transits occur in pairs separated by 8 years due to ‘resonance,‘ or the patterns of alignments, caused by the orbital periods of Earth and Venus. Late on Tuesday, June 5th, we will have an opportunity to see the last Venus transit of our lifetimes. In Astronomy, a transit is when one body crosses in front of another. In the case of a Venus transit, Venus travels across the face of the sun. Since Venus’ apparent (and actual) size is so much smaller than the sun, it will not block much of the sun’s light. However, careful observers can see the tiny dot of Venus move across the bright disk of our closest star. No record exists of observations of a Venus transit before the invention of the telescope in the early 1600s. Only 7 Venus transits have occurred since that time. Astronomers took advantage of these events to generate the first relatively accurate estimates of Earth’s distance to the sun and the size of our solar system. In 2004, astronomers used data collected during the Venus transit to help us understand what can be learned of exoplanets, planets around stars other than our sun, during transits. You and your family can share in this history of discovery by viewing the Venus transit yourself! Safety Information. NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN WITHOUT SPECIAL EQUIPMENT. Similar to viewing the solar eclipse a few weeks ago, special, but affordable, equipment is needed to look at the sun for the Venus transit. Purchase a pair of ‘eclipse glasses’ to safely and easily look at the sun. The Venus transit can also be viewed indirectly with a pinhole projector - a simple, cheap construction project the whole family can help with. Pinhole projector instructions can be found on this website: http://www.exploratorium.edu/eclipse/how.html. Details. Venus will take almost 7 hours to complete it’s path across the sun. In the Western Hemisphere, we will see the beginning of the transit and the sun will set with Venus still moving across it. Venus makes first contact with the sun’s disk just after 4:05pm. Venus will be in the middle of it’s path across the sun at 7:27pm. Sunset is at 8:47pm. Locations. The Venus transit can be seen anywhere the sun is visible after 4:05pm (with your special equipment). To see the transit center at 7:27pm, you will need a spot with a good western horizon. Guided viewing is planned at both Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks. Check at the visitor centers for details. Astronomy Save-the-Dates. As always, astronomy fun will continue throughout the year. More astronomical events will be announced in the paper as they draw near Remember to mark your calendars for the annual Heritage Starfest on October 12-13th (www.heritagestarfest.com). Enjoy the Venus transit safely and enjoy our night skies this spring.

PROVIDING FOR YOUR PETS
Many people have pets that they are devoted and attached to. Perhaps you are concerned about what would happen to your pets if you were no longer able to take care of them. Below are answers to the most commonly asked questions. Can I provide for my pets if I am unable to take care of them? Yes, you can. This applies to any domestic animal. The law allows you to choose a caretaker for your pets. If you become sick or disabled, you should designate the custody and care of your pets to a friend or relative until your health improves. You do this by writing a note or a document that authorizes someone to care for your pets in your absence. You can also include directions for the care of your pets in your will
or trust. Before you name someone as caretaker for your pets, you should discuss it with them to make sure that they are willing to take the responsibility. Can I provide financially for my pets during my illness or disability, or after my death? Yes. During any sickness or injury, the person who is handling your financial affairs can also be given the power to provide for your pets. You may provide funds to your caretaker for food, supplies and veterinary care. A lump sum distribution can be provided to the caretaker after your death. If you have a trust, certain provisions can be included to empower the trustee(s) to assist in your animal’s care. Funds can be given to the caretaker specifically for pet care. Can I create a trust just for my pets? Yes, the use of trusts is allowed to provide for the care of an animal. You can set forth your wishes for a caretaker of your choice, and direct how funds may be spent. You can provide that in special circumstances, such as an illness or emergency, your pet caretaker can spend additional funds.
If I can’t find a caretaker, can I name a humane society or animal shelter? Yes. A cash gift along with the designation of the shelter of your choice may be appropriate and could result in a longer adoption period for your pets. You may wish to state your wishes as to the new home for your pets including pet names, and any special needs. Gifts to shelters or an animal sanctuary of your choice are considered charitable donations and can bring tax savings. What else can I do to protect the pets I love? You could carry a note in your purse or wallet explaining that you have pets at home that depend on you. List their names, what kind of pet and what care they need. You may wish to include the name and phone number of a friend or relative who can gain legal access to your home or yard. In conclusion, your estate planning can entail issues related to the care of a pet. Pets can be a very important part of one’s life. If your pets are very important to you, do not neglect to plan for them when considering your estate planning affairs. Jeffery J.
