Jacob Hamblin Days Will Celebrate Culture, Heritage and Beauty of Southern Utah KANAB- Celebrate the beauty and history of southern Utah at Kanab’s 2013 Jacob Hamblin Days, Wednesday, June 12 through Saturday, June 15. Named after one of southern Utah’s early, most influential settlers, “Jacob Hamblin Days is a celebration of the heritage of southern Utah,” says Kelly Stowell, director of Kanab’s Center for Education, Business and the Arts. That heritage combines southern Utah’s rich American-west cowboy recent past, integrated with its more ancient-and stunningly beautiful-geology and landscape. It’s a heritage that will come alive during Jacob Hamblin Days with rodeos, horse rides, ATV rides, and other events including an essay contest on the theme, “My Favorite Kane County Character.” For many, one those favorite characters is the festival’s namesake, Jacob Hamblin. He was one of the men who made life in southern

Utah possible by improving relations between early pioneer settlers and the native Indians in the area. The sign in front of his historic home describes him as a “pioneer explorer, missionary trailblazer and Indian peacemaker.” A friend to the Indians, Hamblin eased tensions between them and white settlers. “He essentially shaped life in southern Utah affecting our lives today. We want to celebrate that,” Stowell says. But that’s not the only reason for Jacob Hamblin Days. “We’ll take any excuse to go out into the hills and explore and get in touch with our roots and nature,” Stowell adds, referring to the ancient roots of the very earth itself — the awe-inspiring natural beauty that is displayed throughout Kane County. That beauty includes White Pockets, an intriguing geologic feature in which red Jacob Hamblin cont’d on page 2

Great Weather, Lively Crowds, A Dazzling Quilt Walk

PANGUITCH - The weather couldn’t have been any better and the bright skies added to the festive air in Panguitch as the town celebrated their 18th annual Quilt Walk Festival last weekend. “We had a very, very nice festival,” said Elaine Baldwin, Chair of the Quilt Walk Committee, “It just went really quite smoothly.” The wide variety of events were well attended. Quilt-related events included quilting classes and a quilt show, quilt walk races for the kids, a quilt trunk show featuring various artists, and a Quilt Walk Dinner theater with a dutch oven dinner and play recounting the story of the event in 1864 in which a group of seven Panguitch settlers, desperately in need of supplies to get them through a harsh winter, trudged through very deep snows on their way to Parowan to get flour and

food for their starving colony. Struggling through the waist deep snow, the men managed to make their journey by laying quilts their wives had provided for them on top of the snow and walking across them, and repeating this process as they made their way. The “Quilt Walk” story is a cherished part of Panguitch history. Today, the Quilt Walk festival celebrates that history, and in addition, the beauty, care, and artistry that go into the creation of hand-made quilts. To promote the art, the Quilt Walk this year featured 54 different quilting classes, from beginner to expert. According to Baldwin, 136 quilters came and took classes, and lots of kids came to share and learn about the quiltmaking process. While not a competitive or judged event, the Quilt Walk does offer a “People’s Choice” award. This year’s

Peoples Choice winner was Sandy Crabtree, from Cedar City. In addition to quilts, the Quilt Walk also featured a tractor pull, vintage car show, guided tours of pioneer homes, and a heritage fair. Baldwin says she could not have been more pleased with the way the event turned out this year. “We had such a positive response from everyone who participated,” she said. “Everyone is coming back next year.” —Insider Report

BRYCE CANYON N.P. - Bryce Canyon National Park Superintendent Jeff Bradybaugh invites you to join the park in our fourth annual celebration of the Utah prairie dog, a native species to Utah and the Bryce Canyon area. Utah Prairie Dog Day is sponsored by the Bryce Canyon Natural History Association and will occur on Friday, June 21, 2013 from 9 a.m. through the evening with planned activities that include watching Utah prairie dogs in their natural habitat with a Park Ranger, special presentations on Utah prairie dogs and educational tables with fun activities for kids and adults alike! The Natural History Association has available Utah Prairie Dog Day t-shirts for $5 that can be hand-colored at the festival. Don’t miss our special guest, “Petey the Prairie Dog” who will be popping up from his burrow throughout the

day! All daytime activities will take place at the Bryce Canyon Visitor Center. The theme of this year’s Utah Prairie Dog Day celebration is “Understanding the Complex World of the Utah Prairie Dog.” Bryce Canyon National Park is highlighting the incredibly fascinating world of a Utah prairie dog colony, from their social system to complex language. Utah prairie dogs are considered “keystone species” that perform a variety of important ecological functions including soil aeration which helps plants grow, providing prey and places to live for other animals, and maintaining meadow ecosystems. This year’s guest speaker, Dr. Con Slobodchikoff, is a specialist in prairie dog communication. Prairie Dog Day cont’d on page 2

Educator and school bus driver Earl Slack, Garfield School District, participates in hands-on school bus driver training June 5 at Piute High School, Junction. Here, he identifies parts of the engine and bus that must be inspected daily before each route or trip. JUNCTION - Some 80 school bus drivers from Piute, Garfield, Wayne, and Sevier school districts attended an annual eight-hour inservice June 5 at Piute High School, Junction. Wade Fautin, bus driver trainer, Marysvale, welcomed the group. Items studied throughout the day included blood borne pathogens, idling the bus, emergency procedures and components, drugs and alcohol, distracted driving, and bullying. Instructors from Sevier School District included Dawn Bittner and Jason Mitchell, both Monroe, and Bonnie Peterson, Redmond. The annual eight-hour inservice is required training, and drivers must also complete 30 hours of training every five years. They must pass random tests related to drugs and alcohol. A physical assessment and health exam are required every two years. —Mavanee Loftus, Sevier County School District Phone: 435-826-4400 Wayne: 435-836-2622 Fax 1-888-370-8546 PO BOX 105 Escalante, Utah 84726

rock is swirled together with white rock, “like an enormous marble cake,” one visitor has commented. ATV riders on Friday, June 14, will ride to White Pockets, surely to marvel at the natural wonder. “White Pockets epitomizes all that is epic. It is one of the coolest places ever,” Stowell says. But Buckskin Gulch isn’t bad either. That’s where the Back Country Horseman of Kane County will be taking riders on a journey that same day. Buckskin Gulch is the longest and deepest slot canyon in the southwest United States, and, at 21 miles long, may very well be the longest in the world. Riders will ride only a few miles of it though, on a ride estimated to last about four hours. Jacob Hamblin Days also harks back to the roots of the area’s horse-and-cowboy culture. What better way to do that than with two rodeos, one for youth, and one for adult cowboys? And cowgirls won’t

be left out either, with a women’s team sorting event as well The Bureau of Land Management will hold a wild horse adoption in conjunction with the festival on June 14 and 15. Approximately 30 wild horses, ages 1 to 3 years old will be offered for adoption, selected from among Utah’s own wild herds. Twelve burros will also be up for adoption. Adoptions will be on a first-come firstserved basis. Throughout, there will be food, music and other entertainment, including a recital and awards ceremony for the “My Favorite Kane County Character” essay contest, open to public school students from elementary grades through high school.

mized for low speed approaches and gentle landings. These state-of-the-art aerodynamic features, coupled with the efficiency and power of Williams FJ44 engines and the advanced technology of SyberVisionTM avionics by Honeywell, make the SJ30 best in class. MSC and its subsidiaries MTI and SJA will invest millions into the project and will pay an estimated $127 million in new state tax revenue over the 20 year life of the project. Over the lifetime of the agreement, the company will pay over $1 billion in new state wages to 1,200 incented jobs. David J. Grant, Chairman of MSC said, “MSC is excited to continue its long standing relationships with Cedar City, Iron County, and the state of Utah. We are proud of our track record of success in the aerospace industry and hope for a bright future in Southern Utah.” “The expansion and recruitment of MSC into Iron County is the latest punctuation mark on what global companies are coming to know, that Utah IS the Best State for Business and Careers,” said Christopher M. Conabee, GOED Managing Director for Corporate Recruitment. This project was highly competitive, and MSC has other facilities in Texas. The GOED Board of Directors has approved a 20 year Economic Development Tax Increment Financing (EDTIF) post-performance refundable tax credit of $32 million for MTI and SJA, or 25 percent of the $127 million in new state tax revenues which will be collected by the state. —Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development

More Need but Fewer Kids at Utah Summer Meal Programs SALT LAKE CITY Fewer Utah families are taking advantage of free summer meals available for their children. A new report from the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) said 166,000 Utah children get free or reduced-price lunches at school, but fewer than 20,000 receive the free summer meals. One dilemma is that summer food is often tied to summer school - and when that ends in July, so does the meal program. Utahns Against Hunger Executive Director Gina Cornia points out that in some areas, such as San Juan County, summer school has been cut altogether, for budget reasons. “They used to have a really great summer food program,” says Cornia. “Then, a couple of years ago, they quit doing summer school, and we haven’t been able to get summer food back on track. We have some of the poorest kids in the poorest part of the state who don’t have access to summer meals.” The report says about half the states saw fewer children receiving summer meals in 2012 compared with 2011, which runs counter to the inPrairie Dog Day cont’d from page 1

Dr. Slobodchikoff, Professor Emeritus from the Department of Biological Sciences, Northern Arizona University will be presenting a talk on his exploration into the world of prairie dog communication. Join us for this free presentation at the Bryce Canyon Lodge auditorium at 8:00 p.m. Park Biologist Sarah Haas states, “This year’s celebration of the Utah prairie dog is aimed at increasing awareness of the complexity of this species. Their ability to communicate specific information to their colony-mates through different sounds and vocalizations demonstrates an intelligence not seen in many rodents.” In addition to their amazing social and language skills, over 200 other species have been associated with prairie dog colonies, including wildlife that either depend upon or directly benefit by prairie dog activity for

creased need that is being seen during the school year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has made it a goal to increase the meals served this summer by 5 million, nationwide. Crystal FitzSimons, FRAC director of School and Out-of-School-Time Programs, adds that another challenge is making the meal sites convenient for families. “Transportation is one of the big barriers for the summer nutrition programs,” FitzSimons says. “It is harder in communities that are rural to get kids to and from summer sites. It can be hard even in some urban areas, where transportation might be limited.” In some communities across the country, summer meals are “going mobile,” combined with library bookmobiles or local “Meals On Wheels” programs. However, that also takes funding and a dedicated base of volunteers. Summer food sites around Utah are listed on the Utahns Against Hunger website, www. —Chris Thomas, Utah News Connection

survival. “Although it can be difficult to appreciate a species that can interfere with human activities and livelihoods, the Utah prairie dog has an important role to play in the environment.” The park has invited Utah students and adults to participate in a poster contest this year. Artwork depicting Utah prairie dogs was submitted and judged by Bryce Canyon National Park and Natural History Association staff. First place winners from each age group were selected with the grand prize winner’s artwork placed on this year’s Utah Prairie Dog Day official poster – come see it revealed on the day of the festival! All students (K-12th) and their families can enter the park free on Utah Prairie Dog Day. Just tell the Park Ranger at the entrance gate: “I’m here to see the Utah prairie dogs!” and you’ll be admitted for free! —National Park Service

SALT LAKE CITY MSC Aerospace (MSC) and its subsidiaries Metalcraft Technologies (MTI) and SyberJet Aircraft (SJA), along with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCU), have announced that MSC will commence a major expansion in Southern Utah. The company plans to expand their current Cedar City facilities in order to create more manufacturing capabilities throughout a 20 year agreement with Utah. “Utah’s Aerospace industry is rapidly growing. We have the physical space, the technology and the workforce for aerospace companies to rapidly grow operations in Utah,” said Governor Gary R. Herbert. “I’m confident the MSC expansion will attract additional support vendors and other aerospace companies.” MTI is an AS 9100:2009 Rev C aircraft parts and aerostructures manufacturer. MTI fabricates, processes, and assembles a variety of detail parts, sub-assemblies, and related tooling using aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel in accordance with customer prints and specifications. MTI’s customers are proprietary aircraft producers (OEMs) who include Boeing, Bombardier’s Learjet, General Electric, Gulfstream, Lockheed, Northrop Grumman, SyberJet, Vought, and others. “For nearly 25 years MTI has been a valuable member of our community and operates two manufacturing facilities with over 250,000 sq. ft. in Cedar City. MTI and its parent company MSC are cornerstones of our manufacturing community, providing our residents with good jobs and supplying the nation’s aerospace industry with topquality products,” said Cedar City Mayor, Joe Burgess. “We take pride in the reputation they have built in their industry, and we look forward to a bright and exciting future with MSC. We’re proud that Cedar City will be home to the amazing SJ30 aircraft, and we anticipate a future partnership of success and innovation.” Utah’s Aerospace and Defense economic cluster represents about 4.5 percent of all state wages, and the average wage in this industry is roughly 90 percent higher than Utah’s average annual wage. SJA produces the world’s fastest and longest range seven-seat light business jet – the SyberJet SJ30. The SJ30 is single pilot FAA certified jet with a top speed of Mach 0.83 (486 kts / 560 mph) and a 2,500 nautical mile range. It maintains sea level cabin pressure up to 41,000 feet (maximum flight ceiling is 49,000 feet). The SJ30 holds three world records for speed and distance. It is designed with a 30 degree swept wing for high speed and fuel efficient cruising and with leading edge slats and flaps that are opti-

Summer Reading

As we start into the summer vacation for students, I would like to encourage parents to continue to work with their students to improve their academic skills. It is very common for students to exit their classes on grade level at the end of May and when school starts again in August students have regressed one half of grade level. This regression is consistent with one half of a year lost in full class instruction or in other words, a student can regress in the summer back to the same level they were before the winter break of the previous school year. Summer can be great time for students to catch up on reading and math if they have fallen behind in their regular classes. I would ask parents to read to students at least 15 minutes each day to help prevent their reading from regressing. Many communities have summer reading programs at their local libraries; please encourage students to sign up for these programs. The District has purchased Ticket to Read for elementary students, this program is also available during the summer months. If you have a student who has not entered Kindergarten, please consider using the UPSTART program found at http:/ Just a few suggestions to help parents read with their students, first make sure the reading materials are on the student’s level. This can be determined by listening to students read aloud, if a student struggles with more than five words on each page, the reading passage may be too difficult for the student. If you know the students reading level, you can assess other books that may be on the same reading level and that are about topics of interest to them by using “Find a Book”. Students can enter or find their level, pick categories that interest them, and then build a list of suggested titles they can find at their local library to read over the summer. This information is posted at: An additional suggestion is to find reading material that is interesting to the student. Students are much more likely to read subject or stories they enjoy. If a student is in first through third grades it is very important to have students read aloud to someone. This helps students with fluency and comprehension in reading. At the end of the passage, ask the students questions about what they have just read, ask about the main characters and question about predictions in the story. Audio books are a great way for students to become interested in reading chapter books, please just be sure the student has a copy of the book so they can follow along with the narrator. Audio books can create interest by introducing the main characters, setting and story lines. The audio books should be used to spark interest with the goal being to transition the students into reading the stories independently. Make sure the reading material is on grade level, something they are interested in, and dedicate at least 15 minutes each day to reading. Students will maintain their current reading level when they walk in the doors the first day of school. —Superintendent Ben Dalton

How to Make Correct Decisions

My Fortune

By Cynthia Kimball Have you ever wondered if you were making the right decision? How do you really know? Looking back, I now see that I could have made better decisions. Sometimes I made a decision in haste. Sometimes I made a decision because of pressure. Sometimes I think I was not really thinking. And sometimes, worst of all, I made a decision without checking in with God first. And the list goes on. Yet, often times, I’m ashamed to say, I made decisions even though there were warning signs. Red flags the spirit had whispered to me. “How do we make correct choices? A choice involves making a conscious decision. To make an intelligent decision we need to evaluate all available facts on both sides of an issue,” (Peterson, 2006, as cited on, 2013) So, these days, before I make a decision I typically write it down on paper. Then I make a huge “t” in the middle of that paper and write the positives on one side and negatives on the other. In fact, one time even, when considering if I should date a particular man, after the spirit said he wasn’t for me, this exercise confirmed the spirits answer. In essence, it was blatantly obvious, from the “t” exercise, that this guy was not for me. After all, there were three pages of negatives and only three positives that I could come up with for dating him. After you make that “t” on your paper, especially if you haven’t already received an answer from the spirit, often times you can, from what you’ve written, see pretty obviously what you should do. “But that isn’t enough.

Making correct decisions involves prayer and inspiration,” (Peterson, 2006, as cited on, 2013) And Thomas S. Monson (2010) said, “Our Heavenly Father provided the means whereby we could receive from Him God-given guidance. I speak of prayer, of the whisperings from that still, small voice within each of us, and the holy scriptures. Each of us has come to this earth with all the tools necessary to make correct choices. The prophet Mormon [Moroni 7:16] tells us, “The Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil,” (, 2013). This is essentially the advice of Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths,”

(, 2013). “Whether you wear a green T-shirt or a blue one makes no difference in the long run. However, whether you decide to push a key on your computer which will take you to pornography can make all the difference in your life. If a friend pressures you to drink alcohol or to try drugs and you succumb to the pressure, you are taking a detour from which you may not return. May we keep our eyes, our hearts, and our determination focused on that goal which is eternal and worth any price we will have to pay,” (Monson, 2010, LDS. org). Cynthia Kimball is a speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC, and a doctoral student in Workforce Education Leadership. She sometimes writes for Deseret Connect. E-mail:

June 13, 2013


We baby boomers know that our daughters don’t share the same need to iron that we do. This became very apparent while visiting our daughter on our way home from an extended trip. After doing my laundry, I asked my daughter for her iron and ironing board, which she retrieved from the far reaches of her storage room. I was about to plug the iron into the outlet when my grandson walked by and said, “Gramma, is that going to be noisy?”

A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money. The old guy fingered his expensive wool vest and said, “Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel.” “I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents.” “The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I’d accumulated a fortune of $9.80.” “Then my wife’s father died and left us two million dollars.”

Geology Degree

My parents scoffed, but I knew my college degree in geology would come in handy one day. It was during Army Basic Training in Texas and I was pulling KP duty. When the sergeant asked me what I did in civilian life, I proudly said that I was a geologist. “Good. I’m looking for someone with your background,” he said, while dropping a bulging sack onto the table. “You’ve got just the right qualifications to pick the rocks out of these potatoes before you peel them.”

Wills, Trusts, and More Personal Representatives by Jeffery J. McKenna

A personal representative is the person named in a Will to handle the Will-writer’s property after death. The personal representative is in charge of winding up the deceased person’s financial affairs. That means taking care of property, paying bills and taxes, and seeing that assets are transferred to their new rightful owners. If probate court proceedings are required, as they often are, the personal representative must handle them or hire a lawyer to do so. A personal representative doesn’t need special financial or legal knowledge. Common sense, conscientiousness and honesty are the main requirements. A personal representative who needs help can hire lawyers, accountants or other experts and pay them from the assets of the estate. The person you choose should be honest, with good organizational skills and the ability to keep track of details Many people select someone who will inherit a substantial amount of their property. This makes sense because such a person is likely to do a conscientious job of managing your affairs after your death. He or she may also have knowledge of where your records are kept and an understanding of why you want your property left as you have directed. Whomever you select, make sure the person is willing to do the job. It is a good idea to discuss the position with the person you’ve chosen, before you make your Will. When it comes time, a personal representative can

accept or decline the responsibility. Someone who agrees to serve can resign at any time. For this reason, many Wills name an alternate personal representative, otherwise a court can appoint one. The main reason for serving as a personal representative is to honor the deceased person’s request, but the personal representative is also entitled to payment. The exact amount is regulated can be affected by factors such as the value of the deceased person’s property and what the probate court decides is reasonable. Often, close relatives and friends (especially those who are inheriting part of the estate) don’t charge the estate

for their services. Your personal representative will usually hire an attorney to assist with the legal documents needed for the estate administration. The personal representative should choose a lawyer that is capable of explaining the estate administration process. A lawyer may charge by the hour ($150-$200 or more is common), charge a lump sum, or charge a certain percentage of the gross value of the deceased person’s estate. The lawyer’s fee is paid from the assets of the estate. The lawyer should relieve the personal representative of the responsibility of personally handling all the details and should help protect the personal representative from any liabilities associated with serving as personal representative.

Fence Lines

by Ray Conrad

Birth Controller June 7, 2013 One thing I haven’t heard, of late, Is the loverly name of Orly Taitz. She searched the earth with passion and drama To prove there was no Barack Obama. From source to source the lady went For clues to a birth-proving document. From file to file! From cabinet to corner! How could she prove that the man is a foraner? Orly could not even get a good jump On a fellow birth-basher, old Donald Trump. And if she found something, wherever she went, Would Obama not still be the president? Congress, the way they currently run, Wouldn’t impeach him ‘til 2031. It’ll take them that long, on Capitol Hill, To invalidate the Health Care Bill. Poor Orly! One thing she is not too terrific at Is finding Obama’s birth certificat.

Musical Troubles

A musical director was having a lot of trouble with one drummer. He talked and talked and talked with the drummer, but his performance simply didn’t improve. Finally, before the whole orchestra, he said, “When a musician just can’t handle his instrument and doesn’t improve when given help, they take away the instrument, and give him two sticks, and make him a drummer.” A stage whisper was heard from the percussion section: “And if he can’t handle even that, they take away one of his sticks and make him a conductor.”

Ms. Fix It

My sister has the courage, but not always the skills, to tackle any home- repair project. For example, in her garage are pieces of a lawnmower she once tried to fix. So I wasn’t surprised the day my other sister, Dianne, and I found our sister attacking her vacuum cleaner with a screwdriver. “I can’t get this thing to cooperate,” she explained when she saw us. Dianne suggested, “Why don’t you drag it out to the garage and show it the lawnmower?”

The Wayne & Garfield County INSIDER

June 13, 2013


Bryce Valley Music Camp by Mindy Grimshaw It was an incredible week for the musicians in Garfield County during the Bryce Valley Music Camp. Monday started off with an introduction to the amazing clinicians, who came from around the country and included world famous musicians such as Dr. Terry Durbin, Mr. Jack Ashton, Mrs. Sara Penny, Mrs. Megan Titensor and some incredibly talented Utah residents such as Russell Wulfenstein and his talented wife Lindsay, and the astounding Mrs. Rebecca Boyle. Classes began with a thrill of excitement as boys and girls entered the Bryce Valley High School and received their schedule. Whisked off to classes, they rushed to arrive early to each class in order to be properly tuned and ready for the instruction. That is amazing in itself as each of these students is eager to get to class, to sit in the front row and reach new heights with games, music, and fun in every minute of the class. Classes included multilevel instruction based on Dr. Suzuki’s repertoire of music, arranged in 10 volumes of different pieces to encourage a gradation of learning and

skill. For the violin, viola and vello there were classes in repertoire, technique and a master class where each musician had a portion of the class dedicated to just him/her and a certain piece they are currently perfecting. Along with the music classes there was an abundance of other enrichment classes offered to help develop a love of all art and create well-rounded people. Thanks to the Sorensen family from Henrieville we have a renewed sense of rhythm in our bodies as they brought a plethora of drums and percussion instruments to create the rhythms and beat for everyone to enjoy. The art classes also were a highlight and everyone wanted to participate. Thank you for taking on the extra kids! Not to mention the yummy Navajo tacos on Friday! There were also classes in guitar, world dance, and several parent classes on music, instruction, and instrument tuning. The caliber of teachers at this event was superb. Each of them is thoroughly trained with incredible experience behind them...every kid at this camp comes away with a better sense of beauty and joy that

Page 5

is developed with art. The energy flowing throughout the camp was intoxicating. Each day the students would learn and grow in more ways than you would think possible. This truly is a camp where miracles happened...and I was witness to three of them myself!

Beauty and Love and Joy...and Excitement helped the kids bond with others and reveal in a wonderful week of happiness!! Even after the final concert on Friday and throughout the weekend my soul was uplifted and complete! Music is joy and joy is watching children play music!

TORREY NewZ Adus Dorsey

According to the Torrey Town Treasurer and monthly reports, water usage on the Torrey water system is way up and some June water bills far exceed previous years’ water usage by an eye popping 50 to 75%. Recently installed digital metering equipment which can closely monitor water usage data right down to the gallon has provided the Torrey Water department with invaluable water related usage information of which can be referenced to flow rates and system wide water usages and immediate awareness of water leaks. Aggressive monitoring of monthly mountain spring flow rates in relationship to calculated customer water usage has wildly raised some rather unruly and bushy eyebrows of the present Torrey officials. There should be no question that water conservation is in the future interest and of prime importance to all connected Torrey Town water users. Mountain spring flow rates are as unpredictable as the Wayne County weather and mountain water flow rates are as varied as some personalities experiencing menopause or a mid-life crisis. The unfettered and continued practice of passing out water connections on the Torrey Town water system should be seriously investigated before board approval. Also to take into consideration is the unknown, incalculable and immense losses of commercial / residential property and sales taxes for services Torrey Town provides and never will be able recoup. All of which continues to bleed and drain the life from the Torrey Towns coffers, like arterial open neck wound. The glory days of state and federal grant funding that once provided regular financial transfusions for municipal projects is drying up faster than a mud puddle on the south desert in mid July. The writing is on the wall and cities, towns and whole counties are going to have to get creative and learn

Debbie Eiman, Cisco, Texas, visited at the home of her mother, Yukon Norman, last week. She also visited with her sister, Linda and Bill Overall. Then they went to Salina to visit the rest of their family down there. While they were there Debbie was able to go to the temple in Manti and be sealed to her parents, John and Yukon Norman. They also had a chance to visit with Tashonda Green who brought her little children down from Ballard (Near Vernal) for a visit. Then Debbie went back home and Lana Roberts brought Yukon home a day or two later. Garth Alvey, Ogden, visited at the home of Arnold and Deon Alvey during the week. Arnold was named for Garth’s father, who was also Arnold Alvey. That’s three Arnold Alveys that I know of! Garth is an avid genealogist so they got caught up on a lot

of their ancestry while he was here. Also visiting at the home of Arnold and Deon were Anthony and Dot (Alvey) Coombs. They live in Manila, but have to come back to their old home town of Boulder every once in a while. They have also been in St. George living in the home of their son, Ward, for a time. So it’s good that they still feel like traveling around some. Matt and Jo Bullock, Cedar City, came on Thursday to visit Jo’s mom and dad, Ardis and Norman Christensen. They hauled Norm’s pickup back to Cedar City to have it worked on. Liberty Lyman was one of the parents who took their sons to Salt Lake to watch the Salt Lake Bees play ball last week. It cost Liberty a little more for her room than it did the rest of the parents though. She ended up in the hospital in

of Utah Web site for regular updates. As part of a celebration of family, members of the Hatch family gathered in force to reunite for their annual Hatch Family reunion. The Janae (Hatch) Blake family was in charge of this year’s get together but everyone kicked in to help out which always includes Susan (Hatch) and Uncle Bob Bagley. There were so many new babies this year in attendance that they needed nametags to keep them all straight. Son in Law, Dad and Grand Pa Larry Blake was kept busy being lifeguard as the kids played in the water. Uncle Bob was in charge of the auction and he put all the kids to work displaying and delivering the auction items to everyone that made a purchase then rewarded all the kiddos with a candy shower of suckers for their participation. As a permanent fixture at every Hatch event from blessings, baptismals, birthdays, nuptials, anniversaries, graduations, baseball games, music sessions and any event that involves family and friends Dee and Berneal Hatch were prominently there in the thick of it, holding and hugging the newest members to the ever growing Hatch clan. Uncle Gordon, Cousin Lannie and Grand Pa Dee played a bunch of old tunes while Aunt Nellie smiled and maybe even shed a tear or two. Visibly missing were the

Hatch’s from Hanksville due to the funeral of Joan Hunt. Not being an actual member of the Hatch clan I don’t fully recall all the names of the Aunts, Uncles, Children, and cousins of everyone in attendance. What I do recall is how they made me feel and made every effort to try and remember my name and remind me (as I am sure they do others) that for some unknown reason I occupy a special place in their close knit family. A genuine loving effort and a constant reminder and example consistently provided by the Hatch family that I faithfully suggest that we as a human race should always and at every opportunity try to extend to others. As an example of why I never try and never miss out on any chance to hang out with Dee and Berneal Hatch. While in Hanksville one time on a visit to talk with Barbra Ekker, Dee once told me of a story about a guy that lied so much that his dog wouldn’t even come when he called him. Classic Dee, and a genuine Dee statement that to this day I find myself chuckling at and remembering when I ultimately come to the conclusion that someone finds it necessary to lie to me. In the words of Dunc Taylor and a statement that I can certainly associate with, “Nobody has more fun in Wayne County than me!” As a sad commentary no interest was shown in the recent Torrey Town registrations requests for elected office on the Torrey Town Council. A policy clarification is presently under way to throw some light on what is to happen when three members of the five member Town Council relinquish their posts in January. As it stands the possibility exists that Council person Jen Howe and Council person Ty Markham will be responsible for appointing three new members of the board. The motto for this year’s non-election is: “Try being informed instead of just opinionated”.

Salt Lake and had to stay there long enough for an operation to have her appendix taken out! She either has a lot of determination or came out of it feeling pretty chipper, because the last I heard she was going to drive her kids back to Piute for another ballgame there. Hopefully she is doing well by now. Ben and Renee Porter went to Provo again. Ben came back home but Renee stayed to get some things done before they move from their old home to the new one. Ben has to be here to weed and water that garden. Congratulations to Jennifer Nixon and Shaun Deshaw who were married last Saturday, June 8,2013. They were married at the home of Brian and Suzanne Anderson, sister of the bride, by Bishop Chris Rose of Las Vegas, Nevada. Jennifer is a daughter of El Ray and the late Tillie Nixon and Shawn is the son of Barbara Deshaw and the late Wilton Deshaw. The newlyweds will reside in Pahrump, Nevada. Congratulations to Dean and Janis Gledhill who just celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary. Seems like yesterday that 43 was their age! Congratulations to Mike Munson who was recently inducted into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi at the Southern Utah University. Mike is a son of Reed and Karen Munson. Brent Cottam is the new High Priest Quorum Leader in the First Ward. Wade Barney and Johnny Meisenbach are his councilors. Danny Spencer was released as the former Quorum leader and Garth Noyes and Dale Henrie were his councilors. Harriett Priska reports

that her mom, Winnie Washburn, 95 years old, has had a shoulder replacement done, no infection, and is getting along fine. Good for her. She has more spunk than a lot of people half her age! Jolene Dodge took time out last week to have cataract surgery done on her eye. Hopefully she is all healed up by now. Jon, Jillyn, Devyn and Shaylynne Sorensen, Salina, attended a wedding at Ruby’s Inn last Saturday evening, then came on over to Escalante to spend the night at the home of Marlene Haws. We enjoyed their visit but, as usual, it was way too short. Will Godsey and Brace Griffin went to Woodruff last week to help Will’s father brand calves. Carol and Russell Sorenson and their son, Austin, came from St. George to spend the weekend with Pratt and Arcola Gates. Pratt and the Sorensens, along with Margo Smith, took horses and went on the mountain for a ride. They left Arcola behind feeling bad because she can’t ride any more, due to a bad back. It makes me feel bad too when I see pictures of my family riding through the trees on the mountain. That’s where my family and I used to spend our summers. But thank goodness for memories. At least no one can take those away! Hopefully! No reports as to relatives and friends who were here for the two receptions last weekend. Both were apparently well attended and very nice. One for Justin and Emily Miller. The other for Justin and Kaylee Lyman. Best regards to both couples.

Laura Pollock of Tropic and her children are participating in the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti. They have been working and rehearsing very hard and loving it. They say it will help their testimonies grow even more. If you have never been to the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti you should make the trip no matter who you are you will enjoy the acting and music and sitting under the stars watching this with the Manti Temple as a backdrop. Later in the month Stetson and Oakley will go to Cedar Mountain Science Camp. This is a camp for children interested in learning more about science and it is done very well. They will love it also. Sounds like the Pollock family has a busy schedule ahead of them. Derrick are you joining in all this fun? Cub Scouts will be held once a month in the summer with the monthly pack meeting as well. Judy Frost is holding scouts here and there to help the boys pass a few more things off. There are so many things the boys can pass off during the summer if they will sit down with their parents and look through their book. Camping and outdoor activities and even the Zoo are some of the things they can do. Parents work with your boys over the summer and help them pass off some of their work from the cub scout handbook. Coming up in July on the 11th there will be the Blood Drive to be held at the Tropic Church House. You can call Annette Chynoweth at 6798755 to make an appointment. The appointments will run from 1 - 6 P.M. on that day and she is the contact person to go

to. The American Red Cross and the Escalante Utah Stake are working together on this so we hope you will volunteer a few minutes of your time, if you are able, and donate a bit of blood to help those in need. Lesha Le Fevre graduated from Snow College and was on the Dean’s List of Academic Achievement. She has been accepted at the Weber State University Radiology Program and will work on the Provo Outreach Campus. Her Internship will be at the American Fork Hospital and she is looking forward to that time. She will be home in Tropic for the summer and then spend 20 months of schooling to get her degree. Congratulations Leshia. We all knew you could do this and you will be great. Lesha is the daughter of Layne and April Le Fevre of Tropic. Another daughter, Leslie Porter of Taylorsville is teaching school there. She has been teaching the second grade but will be moving on to the third grade soon. Jennie Le Fevre is presently in St. George at the Rehab Center and is coming along. Her children and grandchildren have been great to be with her when she needed them. She lives in Kanab and had Levi and Samantha Le Fevre and Lesha helping her get on the road to recovery. We send our thoughts and prayers to you Jennie. Tristan, Cherie Moss Hathaway, new little baby daughter, Abigail Josephine, Katie and Logan have all been here visiting with John and Ramona Morreale. Of course Grandma is happy about that and the chance to

spoil these beautiful grandchildren. Dad Tristan had to leave them here to go back to Colorado to work and then he will come back to get them. The whole family has been tripping all over visiting family and friends. It is fun to travel but there is nothing like getting home and into your own environment. Now if we could only find someone to do the unpacking then it would be perfect. Today was the Missionary Farewells for Alexis Tebbs and Josh Spencer. Alexis is headed to Mississippi Jacksonville and Josh is going to Texas Fort Worth. Alexis enters the MTC on the 19th and Josh on the 12th. They did a wonderful job today and young men and young women did a great job of singing a medley “Called to Serve”. David and Cherie Tebbs are Alexis’ parents with Rod and Katherine Syrett as grandparents in Bryce Canyon City and Mike and Margaret Tebbs of Panguitch are also grandparents. Josh is the son of Boyd and Nanette Spencer of Tropic. We send them off with the best wishes to stay healthy and safe. On June 21st and 22nd it will be the Escalante Stake Father’s and Son’s outing at Sweet Water. A reminder to ALL Young Men and Young Women that the Seminary building will be the place to be every Tuesday night this summer. Monte Twitchell will be holding classes at 7:00 P.M. for your enjoyment. Gayle Moore and Karin Barker have been called to be Girl’s Camp Unit Leaders from Henrieville. A very successful Music

Camp was held and we are working on getting a report together for you. Coming up this summer will be Summer Reading Program starting the first week in July. It will be held two days a week and Samie Ott and Kim Stewart are in charge. Here is your student’s chance to catch up on some good reading over the summer. Gayle Moore and a lot of teachers from Iron County attended a Writing Conference in the Iron County School District Office. It was sponsored by the Utah Professional Development Center out of Salt Lake. It was a free conference and those who attended had a great time and received some helpful materials. Just to make it clear, the Wagstaff family of Tropic are NOT moving. We don’t want to lose them and for some reason folks thought they were moving away from us. Thank goodness. The Astronomy Festival held at Bryce Canyon National Park was a big success. They had a great turnout and lots of people came to support the many activities that took place. Such things as solar beads, looking at the stars at night, and all kinds of booths and activities. Thanks to the YCC for their help and especially to the park for doing this each year. Well, Father’s Day is next on the celebration calendar and we want to wish all the Father’s out there a very happy Father’s Day. We love you guys. Have a great week and please call or email your news to me. See if you do then you don’t have to hear about my news all the time. Thanks VS

FYI Panguitch

Diane Fullmer put a lot of fun into this event. The many quilts that were on display at the high school were all winners, what talent and what a lot of time it takes to shape a piece of fabric into a work of art!. Hours that go into producing these works of art are unbelievable. I hear that the food that Pat Foy and her team served at lunch time was outstanding. Quilting is a fun activity and it isn’t just for old folks either, next year put these quilting classes on your bucket list. Was there anyone in Panguitch that did not volunteer to help at the Quilt Walk Festival? It never ceases to amaze me the number of “willing to serve” people this town has produced and imported! Pat said to tell the many who participated in the Chocolate Fest and The Pioneer Home Tours that the events were not only fun, entertaining, informative, beautiful, pleasant to the eyes, a joy to the ears, exciting, and delicious, but they were a financial success for the Sub for Santa fund. Please know your help, donations, talent, homes and much effort was very much appreciated. Just to give you a little insight into the number of people who participated in the success of the Chocolate Fest: LaVenda, Linda, Claudia, Jory, Kory, Max, Kevin, Mack, Stefen, Kelly, Shawn, Pat, Dave, Evelyn, Deanna L, Deanna M, Louise, Caryl, Emma, Miriam, Michele, Ardith, Becky, Cheryl, Josiah, McKenna, Katelyn, Marlee, Pearl, Gwen, John, Tammy, Frecia, Marilyn B.

Breast Cancer! 

by Mack Oetting ~ mackoetting This last week was kinda a blur, with so much going on. The Quilt Walk Festival is a busy time in Panguitch. The Play had a lot of new faces and Mr. Humble, John Blevins told me not to worry, the Spirit will get them and all will be well and God will provide. I have never seen Elaine Baldwin, the director, so excited about the outcome of the play, in the 15 years it has been put on. Everyone preformed at their best, and it was a fun time. I remember the first year the Play was put on, some of the main characters didn’t feel that they had to attend the practices and there were people behind the curtains telling them their parts, it was a disaster. Saturday started off with the Lions Club breakfast that was well attended and a great turnout of the Lions. It was followed by the tractor parade and old autos and this event just keeps getting larger. The cars were beautiful and I hope you got down to the fair grounds to look at them up close, they are works of art. I didn’t have time to get down to the tractor pull, but with all the tractors it must have been something. There were 6 teams that took part in the Quilt Race and all were winners, getting cup cakes for prizes. The Pioneer village and petting zoo was well attended. One of the missions of the Quilt Walk Festival is to teach the children pioneer skills so that they will have an appreciation of their heritage. Not all children have an opportunity to pet animals and get up close to them; the petting zoo is a wonderful to see animals close up. Thanks Decker’s! The Quilt classes were well attended and there were great teachers for the “Trunk Shows” and many prizes awarded. Jerilu Houston and

quilt. There will also be raffle items for your children and grandchildren. Raffle tickets will be available at the door, please come and join them and check out their new station. The agriculture water started this week and if you don’t know your water day, check out the schedule at the Post Office. We bought a new car the other day. This will be our 3rd Ford Explorer, ours was 14 years old and had 350,000 miles on it. New charges that surprised me is that the buyer has an advertizing fee at $800, the gas you used get from the dealer for free, they now fill up your car at the factory and the cost is $64.00. This is the forth car that we have bought through COSCO, and there is a real big saving going through them. Well we have some candidates for the empty Mayors and City Council positions. I was wrong about the highest vote getter getting the 4 year terms, you have to declare which position you are filing for. Eric Houston was the only one to file for the Mayors position and will serve for two years. The candidates for the two, two year Council positions are Lloyd Brinkerhoff, Harshad Desai, Connie Orton and Trudy Owens. For the two, four year Council positions there are three candidates: Tim Smith, Kim Sopper and myself Mack O. Because there aren’t more than two candidates for each position there won’t have to be a run off. I have been informed that this election will be run by mail (I am not sure what that means). Elections are expensive, those great machines cost to rent and you have to pay for judges. Boy is it hot, try to stay cool. Mack O.

For Your Health What to Do When Your Child Has a Fever New parents are often very concerned about the health of their baby. They may agonize over every cough, runny nose, or episode of fever. While it is a good idea to contact the pediatrician whenever you are worried, mild fevers can often be treated at home. Is a Mild Fever Dangerous? Fortunately, most fevers are harmless. In fact, when a child develops a fever, he or she is using an important defense against infection. This is because infections survive best at normal body temperature. When the temperature goes up, the invading organisms do not survive as well, and the child overcomes the infection earlier. For this reason, older infants can develop high fevers when they experience minor illnesses. Elevated temperatures may not be due to infection. Perhaps the infant is overdressed or wrapped in a hot, tight blanket. Trapped body heat causes the temperature to rise. The remedy here is to remove the blanket and/or some outer clothing to allow cooling. Your child may experience convulsions caused by the fever, known as febrile seizures. Most of the time these seizures are of no consequence, end quickly, do not cause any permanent harm, and do not mean that your child has developed epilepsy. However, seizures are a medical emergency, and your child should be seen by a doctor to rule out any possible complications. Eating and Drinking While a Fever Is Present Allow the child with fever to drink plenty of fluids. However, if the chosen fluid is fruit juice (e.g., orange or apple juice), it is best to dilute it with an equal amount of water. Popsicles and liquid Jell-O are good choices, and if the child is vomiting, they are particularly useful. The child with fever can eat, as long as he or she is not forced to do so. Bland foods such as bread, crackers, pasta made with refined white flour, and refined hot cereals (e.g., oatmeal, cream of wheat) are usually well tolerated. Nonprescription Medications You must be extremely cautious in using nonprescription medications to lower a child’s fever. A good general guideline is to take a child 3 months of age or less to a physician when the temperature is 100.4˚F or above when measured rectally; when the fever is above 102.2˚F in a child aged 3 to 12 months; and when older children have a fever of 105˚F and above. Consult Your Pharmacist for Advice in Treating Fever Aspirin is a bad choice for relief of fever and should be avoided unless a physician advises its use. Acetaminophen should not be used in those under the age of 2 years, and ibuprofen drops should not be used for fever in children under the age of 6 months. Acetaminophen drops should be used no longer than 3 days, and ibuprofen products no longer than 3 days (or 24 hours if they do not provide any relief). Every nonprescription product has a long list of warnings and precautions on its box. You should carefully read each of these before purchase and/or use of the product. Failing to do so can expose your child to serious adverse reactions. Dose the product exactly as directed, and use only the dropper or measuring device that comes with the product.

On June 7, the USFWS announced that a rule to remove gray wolves from the Endangered Species (ES) list will be placed in the Federal Register for comment. The rule should be in the register no later than June 10. Once the rule is posted, comments will be accepted for 90 days. You can read the USFWS’s announcement, and read more about gray wolves in the United States, at Reaction in Utah John Shivik, mammals coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says gray wolves in North America are doing really well. He supports the USFWS’s recommendation to remove gray wolves from the ES list. “Now that the species is recovered,” Shivik says, “the focus needs to shift. If wolves make their way to Utah, balancing the number of wolves with the amount of prey that’s available to them needs to be the focus.” Protecting livestock is also a concern. “If wolves start to establish themselves in Utah,” he says, “they’ll likely come into conflict with livestock. We need to be prepared for that too.” Shivik says gray wolves have wandered into Utah from time to time. Currently, however, biologists aren’t aware of any wolves in the state. “When wolves do make their way here,” he says, “we need to have the ability to manage them.” If wolves are removed from the ES list, any wolves that make their way to Utah would be managed under the state’s Wolf Management Plan.

Next, know the score, credit-wise. Many people don’t realize until it’s too late that a poor credit score can trash your financial future. After you’ve missed a few loan payments, bounced some checks or exceeded your credit limits, you’ll probably be charged higher loan and credit card interest rates and offered lower credit limits (if not denied credit altogether), unless and until you can raise your credit score. You may even have to pay higher insurance rates and harm your ability to rent an apartment or get a cell phone. To know where you stand, review your credit reports from each of the three major credit bureaus (Equifax,

Come Say Hi and Take a Look Around

To the millions of college and high school seniors who recently graduated (and to their parents, who weathered the ups and downs of reaching that summit): congratulations on a job well done. After the celebration dies down, you’ll no doubt be eager to embark on life’s next chapter, whether it’s finding a job, preparing for college or enrolling in military or community service. Before you jump in feet first, however, let me share a few financial lessons I learned the hard way when I was just starting out. They might save you a lot of money in the long run and help you get closer to your life goals, whether it’s buying a house, starting a family or even retiring early – as far off as that may sound. First, pretend you’re still a starving student. After landing your first full-time job, the urge to go on a spending spree for new clothes, a better apartment and a car from this decade will be irresistible after surviving on ramen noodles for four years. But unless you had generous scholarships or a rich aunt, you’re probably already saddled with thousands of dollars in student loan debt. (Note to entering freshmen: Tread carefully around student loan debt. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has a great guide for making informed decisions about paying for college at www.consumerfinance. gov/students.) After you’ve factored in rent, car payments, renter’s and car insurance, credit card charges, student loan balances and other monthly bills (not to mention payroll taxes such as Social Security tax, which went up 2 percent this year), your new salary probably won’t go as far as you’d like, especially if you’re trying to save for one of those life events. That’s where a budget can help. Numerous free budgeting tools, including interactive
