Escalante City Council
City Budgets Reviewed; New Ordinances for Delinquent Water Bills, Commercial Dumpsters ESCALANTE – Escalante’s June 5 city council meeting opened with a public hearing on four separate issues. First was the regular budget hearing to discuss the 2018-19 budget, and also an opening of the 2017-18 budget for amendment. In most categories, next year’s budgeted income and expenses are similar or the same as the current year. Projected income from property taxes for the current and next year is $112K. Other taxes: resort, sales and use, franchise, innkeeper, fee in lieu, recreation, are very close to the same. Overall taxes for 2017-18 are 439K; for 2018-19 they are projected to be $454K. The largest budgetary income changes for 2019/19 are in the “intergovernmental revenue” category. In 201819 the city is expecting an airport grant of $450K and a state grant of $848K. This ECC

BOULDER - The Boulder Town Council meeting began by recognizing the Cemetery Board volunteers, who recently conducted a cleanup of the Boulder Cemetery for Memorial Day. Second on the agenda was a presentation by Pam Furches of the Tree City Committee, who discussed a first draft plan for a community orchard in the Boulder Town Park. The Committee announced that they had just won a $1,000 Corona Cares grant for tools to help with orchard and town park maintenance. Next, the Tree City Committee asked for approval for a 1.2 acre site within the 9 acre town park to plan the orchard. The Committee has 44 trees that were grafted from Boulder historic trees and are currently ready to be planted, and would like to begin planting in August. The main goals of the orchard will be to provide an educational space for community memBoulder Town Cont'd on page 5

To The Water Guardians
From the Publisher's Desk
This week, a small rant. Here goes: At tonight’s (June 5) city council meeting here in Escalante, among the topics our council discussed are issues related to our town dumpsters, and how the city dumpster services are being abused. Our city leaders are trying to resolve a problem: people put items in the dumpsters that aren’t supposed to go in there. And also, it seems our citizens are not managing items that are allowed to go in there properly—specifically cardboard, which is supposed to be broken down. (“It’s a big problem,” said Mayor Torgersen.) So don’t think it isn’t. I’ve missed a few recent city council meetings so I hadn’t been aware of the proposal, until this week, for the city to move to household curbside trash pickup. This would be a big change for our town. Council members have tried a number of strategies to fix the current dumpster situation: They have installed cameras at the dumpsters, and have enforced hefty fines for violations. Abusers of the dumpster rules may be fined up to $750. Fines are being imposed, and paid. The council says this still hasn’t helped. A brand new trash truck had a windshield broken out while attempting to dump some stupid, inappropriate item someone had stuffed in there, and, also, a hole got punched in the side of the truck. Drive by our dumpsters and you may see the likes of mattresses, bed frames, truck axles, toilets, construction debris, couches, exercise equipment, broken boats, trees, tires, dead (or live) animals, car fenders…the list goes on… overflowing out of our dumpsters. My own rule of thumb over the years has been: if it at least fits inside the dumpster, it’s OK, right? Though I realize—and probably most everyone else does too—that this is not the case. Yard trimmings aren’t supposed to go in there, and the broken desk chair isn’t either. I too have pushed the envelope. I imagine that there is not any one of us—very likely including individuals who have presided in our city’s council chambers over the years—who has not disposed of some inappropriate item or items at some time in the course of our years here. I’m not pointing fingers at anyone specifically, I’m just saying it’s probably happened, because it’s so easy to do. But here we are, at a crux point. If things don’t change, and if we don’t start using using our dumpsters more responsibly (like, pronto), our city leaders are geared to move us to curbside pickup. Some people will like this idea for their own reasons, but (here comes the ranty part) I personally hate curbside pickup. When I lived in a city, I found it to be one of the major irritations of city life—trying to remember to get the trash out on the correct day, dragging the plastic dumpster(s) back and forth up and down the driveway, and listening to the drone of the trash truck coming up the street and dumping at each and every house on its appointed rounds. Right now, I scarcely notice the local trash truck coming around to the few houses who currently opt-in for curbside service. But once the change takes place—if it takes place—you will definitely know when trash day comes around. And it’s going to cost extra, too. In short, I’ve considered the option of disposing of my trash on my own schedule one of the joys of rural life. (And for those who love the service of curbside, that option is already available to you.) So, what’s our city council supposed to do? Is it possible to manage our trash with our current system, and not go to curbside service? It will depend entirely on everyone’s behavior, and our will to change. If everyone in town decides to use the dumpsters properly, and take their larger, non-household trash items to the city dump, we might be able to avoid it. But that’s a big “depends.” If people continue to willfully disregard the rules, and do what they know is wrong, and throw something like their broken recliner, or their busted treadmill, in the dumpster, we’ll be going to curbside service. And guess what, when we do that, you won’t have a free dumpster to throw your oversized item into, anyway. So you might as well make the change now. What other remedies are there to managing our refuse? If you have a bright idea, share it with our city leaders, and get involved. Meanwhile, Escalante residents, if you need to get into the city dump, call 616-4644 or 690-0117. The service is available by request, Monday through Saturday. And we are so lucky….it’s FREE. —E.W.

The council approved the budgets following the hearing. Copies of the city budgets are available from the city. The public hearing also addressed the issue of delinquent water bills, with a proposed ordinance to amend the process of addressing water
bill delinquency. The proposal is to change the initial “past due” letter interval from 60 days to 30 days, to change the red tag/shut off interval from 90 days to 60 days, and to change the 5% penalty interval from 60 days to 30 days. The council approved these

changes. The hearing also addressed a proposed ordinance to impose a requirement that dumpsters be installed and used by all commercial properties. During this portion of the hearing a wide-ranging discussion took place regarding the use and management of both the city dumpsters and the city landfill. The goal of the commercial dumpster ordinance is to reduce the trash burden in the city dumpsters. This ordinance was subsequently approved. Three planning and zoning items were addressed: Charlene Haycock was approved for an addition and remodel at 189 N. 100 W. (Almeda’s house), Randy and Sandra Holcomb were approved for a single wide trailer at 650 S. 195 E.; and Mark and Lee Minchey were approved for a manufactured home at 570 W. 325 N. Guy Graham reported that our city water tanks have been cleaned and inspected and received are in good shape. Dan’l Lindsay reported that Harward & Rees, contractors based out of Loa, have been awarded the contract to build Escalante’s new community center. Construction is expected to begin on June 18. Mayor Melani Torgersen underscored that the new building is indeed to be a community center (not “just” a senior center) and that it will be available for a variety of community activities. Mayor Torgersen invited the public to come forward with any ideas they would like to see these amenities be used for. “Bring ‘em forward,” she said. —Insider

I was struck by Constance Lynn's letter in the recent issue of the Insider. While Rotenone poisoning of Boulder Creek is horrendous and efforts to force agencies to use non-toxic controls are essential, the health of Boulder Creek appears to be negatively impacted by excessive nutrient loading (eutrophication). While visiting the area over Memorial Day, I hiked off of Hwy 12 into Boulder Creek just below the confluence with Dry Hollow. I was saddened to see the extent to which the stream is impacted by algae growth. Considering that Boulder Creek was virtually de-watered at the Hwy 12 crossing in Boulder on Memorial Day weekend, the source(s) of nutrients circumstantially appear to be field runoff (ag production and livestock) and septic system seepage from parts of Boulder that drain to Boulder Creek. It would be worthwhile to walk upstream from the Dry Hollow confluence to observe the algae load in the stream and to look at stream volume and source(s) of flow, to get an idea of what is contributing to the nutrient load. Other watersheds coming off of Boulder Mountain do not show this degree of eutrophication. I hope that Utah Water Guardians are investigating local pollution sources also.

When the double echoes of "Taps" was so eloquently played, quite a few tears were felt on cheeks as well.

Punishment Shower Thoughts
It was obvious one Monday morning at The Restaurant School, where I was training to be a chef, that it had been party time that weekend. Most students were nodding off in their seats. The instructor, demonstrating a short-order breakfast, had many dishes going at once and soon there was the smell of burning toast. The instructor looked at it, at the dozing students and demanded, "What is this?" One sleepy student glanced at the black smoke and mumbled, "It's coma toast, sir."
On her 40th birthday a wife waltzed out of the bedroom dressed in an old outfit that she dug out of the back of the closet. "I wore this on my 30th birthday! I guess that means my wardrobe is ten years old," she said to her husband, hoping he'd take the hint and buy her some new clothes as a present. "Or," he offered instead, "it means when you were 30 you had the body of a 40-year-old." (He is expected to be discharged from the hospital next week but he will always walk with a limp).

ers that work so hard all the time but especially during events like this. Panguitch is so lucky to have men that put in such a great effort for us. Just as successful was the Quilting classes. Two hundred and seventy five were enrolled in the classes, and it was even hard to find a place to park. Jerilu Lou Houston and Dianne Fullmer put in countless hours on this event, securing teachers for the classes at all different levels. It is a really tiring process that takes many months of planning. Hiding in the back ground was Linda, Shannon, Becky, Shawn, and all the quilters that share their quilting talents yearly! We got a lot of good compliments on the Quilt Walk play this year. Elaine Baldwin, who retired this year from directing the play for 19 years, turned it over to Becky Henrie and Mike Savage. Boy did they respond. Most of the main players are back each year and know their parts pretty well, but the small parts like the skunk scene and the Indian Summit wanting flour, almost always have new little kids in them. This is where Becky did her tireless work with these new cast members, and the whole play went off really well because of much of Becky’s dedication and talent. These young kids really make the play fun, because you never know what they are going to do. Watching them sing the closing song and being only 4 or 5 years oldTabiona is exciting to me.

Did you know we’re in the midst of Flag Week (June 10-16 of this year), and today (June 14) is Flag Day? Although not a federal holiday, Congress passed, and President Truman signed legislation in 1946 proclaiming Flag Week as a time “when Americans reflect on the foundations of the nation’s freedom.”* What were these foundations of freedom based upon? This is a great Google exercise for the whole family, and a perfect Flag Week activity. Look up “founding of the U.S.” and “Enlightenment.” Our founding leaders were diligent and prepared. In fact, they worried and doubted about being prepared enough, despite being well-educated and well-read. Some were religious; some were not. The men most closely involved in authoring our founding documents—Thomas Jefferson and James Madison—were heavily influenced by philosophies of
the European Enlightenment. Specifically, some of the ideas, and even verbiage of English philosopher John Locke were directly reflected in Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence: government derives its powers through the consent of the governed; all men are created equal; and that our natural rights are life, liberty, and property. The Enlightenment was a philosophical period that celebrated humans’ capacity for rational thought and the ultimate goals of knowledge, happiness, and freedom. Reason was the power by which humans could understand their world and improve their own conditions. These were our country’s foundations of freedom. Rational, thinking, debating, welleducated men who decided to lay out this social experiment of representative democracy as a government and see how far we might take it. It’s been a mostly bumpy journey, and now we’re here.
Our leaders have engaged us in military conflicts nearly every 20-30 years throughout our history. Some of these conflicts have been deemed by history as just and honorable, even necessary. Others are shadowed by duplicitous manipulation, for monetary or territorial gain, or political distraction. Nevertheless, we have a strong tradition of honoring the individuals, the men and women who have fought in and died in these conflicts. We honor their willingness to put their lives on the line in service of a duty that fewer and fewer of us now are called to perform. We honor their incredible acts of individual heroism partly because they truly are incredible, and partly because we wonder if we ourselves would be capable of such extreme selflessness and bravery in the terror of battle. Our reason and attempts to improve our own conditions have also led to the selfless and courageous acts of civilians
fighting and dying for individual liberty and justice: civil rights, child labor laws and the right to fair and equal wages and labor practices, the right to an equal education, women’s right to vote and participate equally in society, reproductive freedom, LGBT rights, and now perhaps, equal access to health care. All these battles, military and otherwise, have been conducted in the spirit of the freedom and ideals symbolized by our flag and our founding. It is not surprising that the thinkers and fighters on all sides of these issues have raised the flag in solid defense of their beliefs. And so, on Flag Day, and in a few weeks for 4th of July, if we’re going to be raising and waving our flags, we also ought to be reflecting on the ideals of our founding and all the struggle and turmoil that our flag has represented. *See https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/us/flagday
Social Security Combined Trust Fund Reserves Depletion Year Remains 2034 Says Board of Trustees Disability Fund Improves by Four Year The Social Security Board of Trustees today released its annual report on the long-term financial status of the Social Security Trust Funds. The combined asset reserves of the OldAge and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance (OASDI) Trust Funds are projected to become depleted in 2034, the same as projected last year, with 79 percent of benefits payable at that time. The OASI Trust Fund is projected to become depleted in late 2034, as compared to last year’s estimate of early 2035, with 77 percent of benefits payable at that time. The DI Trust Fund will become depleted in 2032, extended from last year’s estimate of 2028, with 96 percent of benefits still payable. In the 2018 Annual Report to Congress, the Trustees announced: • The asset reserves of the combined OASDI Trust Funds increased by $44 billion in 2017 to a total of $2.89 trillion. • The total annual cost of the

ESCALANTE - Ryan Lawton Carter, 41, was tragically taken from us in a motorcycle accident on June 9, 2018 in Escalante. Ryan was born August 27, 1976 in Phoenix. Arizona. Our husband, father, son, brother and BEST friend had no rival. He was a man of his word, loyal without condition and the glue that held us all together. His professional legacy is exceptional. As a CEO and business owner he provided jobs for hundreds of people. The work he performed stand as landmarks across Utah and many other states. Ryan’s greatest talents were exhibited as a dad. He excelled as a father in remarkable ways. He made it clear that Brooklyn, Brayton, Cash and Blake meant everything to him. He was the gold standard of fatherhood. Ryan is survived by his wife Alicia; his children: Brooklyn, Brayton, Cash and Blake; father, Myron Carter; mother, Dawna (John) Jones; siblings: Amber (James), Landon (Jennifer), Kaylee (Justin); Jaimi, the mother of Brooklyn, Brayton and Cash; and many other family members who love him and will forever benefit from his example.

If you ever have an idea for how to “make things better” or feel, “if only” or “ahha” as you invent the next idea or product or some other aspirational desire to create, you are like many people. You differentiate yourself by taking your idea/thought/aspiration from the abstract to realistic through proper notetaking. And organization of your documents. Creating a Business. Businesses require three things: passion, finances, and proper registration. If you want to start a business, thoroughly review your idea and research its viability. Is there already someone producing your product or providing your services? What makes you stand out? What is your competitive edge? Listen to others and do your own research. Write your business plan and prepare to pitch it to a potential financier such as a bank, friend, or family member. You may see a need that others cannot imagine or perceive as possible. And that’s okay. Just do it (with a realistic vision and some kind of market research). Throughout your business creation process, make sure to register your business with the State of Utah and your municipality or county. Have an operating agreement and start drafting a policy handbook. Decide if you want to create a partnership and consider the investments of each leader in your business. Creating a non-profit or grassroots organization. Is there a social need in your community? A cultural need? Many people have a pivoting moment in their life then decide they would like to participate or create a group, nonprofit, or start a branch of an already existing, established organization to help with social or cultural issues in their community. If you decide to create a chapter or branch of an existing organization, take a moment to review their constitution and bylaws. These documents control everything from the purpose of the group to how meetings are managed and people are chosen for leadership positions. If you choose to create your own organization, decide if you should establish it as an organized non-profit organization with
board members and filing requirements with the state and federal government. Information about starting a non-profit organization can be found by Googling the Utah Nonprofit Association. Like starting a business, consider what other organizations are doing similar actions compared to your organization or how your organization or chapter can add value to your community. If you choose to create a nonprofit organization, make sure to have your bookkeeping and documents kept in compliance with Utah and federal laws. Patenting an invention. Did you create a new tool or item that would be useful to someone else? If so, keep careful record of your invention. Record every step of your invention process and describe and diagram every modification of your invention and how you came up with it. If you create a prototype, record that information in your notebook. The key to defending your patent is in your record keeping and note organization. Next, you want to file for a patent, make sure no one else has patented your idea. You can do this through the United States Patenting Trademark Office (Google it). There, you can also file for a patent application. There are many resources online for learning how to patent an invention yourself. However, if it is too complicated, you may want to hire an attorney. If you stay organized and read the small print, your organizational skills will be thanked later when there are questions about the formation, policies, or decisions you made. Not all ideas for businesses, organizations, or inventions will come to fruition. And not all ideas are good or realistic ideas. Just remember, not everything will flower, but nothing flowers without roots. Your current idea could be the basis the next great business, organization, or patent. Disclaimer. As always, my column is not legal advice, instead merely insight into the law and legal profession.
