The Utah Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will host its annual statewide public hearing at the Fillmore Field Office to discuss the use of helicopters and motorized vehicles in the management of wild horses and burros on Utah’s public lands. The hearing this year will be held: Friday, July 20 at 6pm Fillmore Field Office 95 East 500 South Fillmore, Utah An annual public hearing for comments on this issue is required by federal regulation, the Fillmore hearing will be the only one held in Utah this year. “Helicopter and motorized vehicle usage is a critical management tool when managing wild horses on the open range,” said Eric Reid, Fillmore Wild Horse and Burro Specialist. “These management tools allow us to conduct aerial population inventories,

monitor animal distribution, and transport captured animals in an effective and humane manner.” Utah’s current wild horse and burro population is about 3,300 head. Increased wild horse number may cause limited forage and water availability, which reduces the number of animals that can be supported on the land. Utah BLM gathers an average of 300 horses annually from public lands to help control horse populations, which can increase 15 to 25 percent annually. Utah BLM and its contractors plan to gather excess wild horses from Herd Management Areas located in Millard, Beaver and Iron Counties. Gather location may change due to the available funding, wildfires, or available water and forage due to drought conditions. To date the BLM has removed more than 14,600 wild horses and 500 burros from Utah’s range-

lands since the government roundups began in 1975. Over 7,000 of the animals have been adopted locally; the remainder of the animals is shipped east for adoption. Utah’s 2012 satellite adoptions started in April and continue monthly throughout the state. Adoption locations are tentatively set for Salt Lake City, Morgan, Heber City, Utah and Rexburg, Idaho. Daily adoptions are ongoing at the Delta Wild Horse & Burro Facility. Monthly adoptions are held on the first Tuesday of each month August 7 and September 4 at the Gunnison Prison Horse Program in Gunnison, Utah. For additional information about the upcoming statewide public hearing, or future wild horse and burro adoptions, visit www.blm. gov/ut or contact the Fillmore Field Office at 435743-3100 or the BLM Utah State Office at 801-5394057.

According to National Park Service, the New Mexico family was enjoying the scenery and looking at Peekaboo Arch when one PWC slowed down off plane and the other did not, resulting in the collision. A juvenile female was taken to the hospital and later released. The accident investigation is being conducted by Utah State Parks with

assistance from San Juan County Sheriff’s Office and the National Park Service. The names of the deceased will not be released until the conclusion of the investigation.

BIFF Blows into Bicknell JULY 20-21, 2012

For 18 years, the Bicknell International Film Festival (BIFF) has entertained film fans. The festival’s overall theme is “Better Living through Bad Cinema.” Focusing on the worst of “B-grade”, bad, or simply bizarre films, each year the BIFF committee selects three movies that reflect the best of the worst for a particular theme and celebrates the fun of bad film. From interpretations of the Mayan calendar to predictions made by religious zealots, people have envisioned the end of time since the beginning of civilization. Tied with this goofy idea, this year’s theme is “It’s Doomsday 2012!” This year’s festival features three great B films: Panic in Year Zero, Crack in the World, and When Worlds Collide. In addition to the three movies, the festival includes the “World’s Fastest Parade” from Torrey to Bicknell Friday at 6PM, a costume contest, parties on both Friday and Saturday night (food, music and dance), and a Saturday noon-time Doomsday Lunch and Survivor Challenges at the Bicknell Town Park. Purchase of a FastPass allows entry to all festival events; it’s the best-priced deal for taking in the two days of BIFF events. Individual tickets can be purchased for selected events. Come join the fun JULY 20-21, 2012 at the Wayne Theatre in Bicknell, Utah! Learn more at or join us on Facebook.

Willingly Serve, It’s Part of God’s Amazing Design for You By Cynthia Kimball As I drove in through the gates of my housing community, I passed a car on my right side that was just sitting there. A woman, in the driver’s seat, mouthed to me, “I’m sorry.” Not thinking anything more, I proceeded through the gate. Then, out of nowhere I heard, “Go back and help her!” So I did, immediately. And as I was making that turn around, I saw Michelle, who I’d met on a recent morning jog. That particular morning, Michelle, who works at the nearby hospital, and was just about to begin her 12 hour shift in the critical care unit, and was pleasant as ever, even at 6:30 AM. So I rolled down my window. “Hey, Michelle! “Hey!” she said, once she figured out who I was. “How are you?” “Great! How are you?” “I’m great, too!” “So wonderful to see you!” “You, too!” “Hope to see you again.” “Yeah, me, too. Well, that was pretty cool, I thought. If I hadn’t turned around, I wouldn’t have run into Michelle. Then I thought of the chances of that encounter happening. Very slim. But it wasn’t slim with God designing it. I then proceeded on back to the gate to help the woman in the car. I my parked my car, turned it off and walked over to her. She was talking on her cell phone when I said: “Do you need help?” “Yes, my car’s stalled.” “I can get you help if you need it” (since I personally know nothing about cars). “Oh, that would be great.” “Sure thing. By the way, what’s your name?” “Marilyn.” “I’m Cynthia,” I said as we shook hands. “Nice to meet you.” So I call one of my home teachers, Brother Garrett*. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, each family has two men who look after them and teach gospel messages. To my surprise, Brother Garrett answers! “Brother Garrett, this is

Cynthia Kimball, how are you?” “I’m great, Cynthia, but how are you?” “I’m feeling so much better, Brother Garrett. Thank you. Hey, the reason I’m calling, and I know you may have something already planned for tonight, but there’s a woman, who I assume lives in my housing complex, but her car’s stalled at the gate. Can you come help push her through it?” “Cynthia, I would love to, but my wife and I are about to leave to see our grandson’s art show. Yet, if I’m able to I’ll be right there. Hold on…” Brother Garrett leaves our phone conversation. But, before he does, I say, “Oh, thank you, Brother Garrett.” A few seconds pass and then Brother Garrett comes back on the phone. “Cynthia, we’re supposed to leave in 20 minutes. I’m so sorry I can’t help you.” “That’s okay, Brother Garrett. Should I call Brother Jones* (my other home teacher) or someone else?” After a bit of a pause, Brother Garrett says, “Cynthia, hold on, I’ll be there in 3 minutes.” “No,no, NOOOOOOO, Brother Garrett.” But Brother Garrett shows up anyway all dressed up. And the weather’s like 109 degrees out. But when someone calls for service, he’s there. Yet, we needed one more person. So I flagged down this guy heading into our complex. He had a Ford truck hoisted up real high and had a cigarette dangling from his mouth. Yet, he rolled down his window. “Hey, can you help push a stalled care through the gate?” “Sure.” “Oh, thank you so much!” So he parks his truck. After he gets over to us, I ask, “What’s your name?” “Devin”* he says. I extend my hand out. “Thank you so much, Devin.” He smiles and says, “No problem.” “And Devin, this is Don Garrett and this is Marilyn.” Now that everyone knew each other it was time to get

down to business. “Devin, we’re going to push Marilyn’s car until she tells us to stop.” “K.” So we (I say we even though I hardly did anything) pushed Marilyn’s car. And the whole time she was saying, “I’m so sorry.” And we were saying, “Don’t worry about it.” After we had pushed Marilyn’s car to where she needed to go, she got out of her car, thanked us and apologized once more. “You need anything else, Marilyn?” “No, I’m great, thank you!” she said so appreciative. “You’re very welcome.” And then I hugged Marilyn. “It was so nice to meet you.” And then thanked Don and Dave” who were so grateful to be involved. Dave headed back, ahead of us, to the gate, to get his car. And as we walked, I said to Don, or Brother Garrett, “I wish I had their information to keep in touch.” “God will take care of that, Cynthia, he said.” Well, Brother Garrett was right. That next morning? There was Dave at the post office. He was holding a cigarette in his ear, but was friendly as ever and wanted to talk. “Hey Dave, thanks, again, for helping out yesterday.” “Of course, I love doing stuff like that.” And then we talked some more. “I hope I see you again” I said as I shook his hand. So the next time you run into complete strangers, you may have a really cool experience like Brother Garrett and I did. And you may then just run into them again. Especially because God’s already designed it. You’ve just got to be patient enough to wait until then end of the story. Which is what I’m doing right now… *Name changes Cynthia Kimball is a professional speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC, and a doctoral student in Workforce Education Leadership. She also writes frequently through Deseret Connect. E-mail:

Healthy Place?

At the urging of his doctor, Bill moved to Texas. After settling in, he met a neighbor who was also an older man. “Say, is this really a healthy place?” “It sure is,” the man replied. “When I first arrived here I couldn’t say one word. I had hardly any hair on my head. I didn’t have the strength to walk across a room and I had to be lifted out of bed.” “That’s wonderful!” said Bill. “How long have you been here?” “I was born here.”

Sorting Clothes

Inner Peace

Helping her mom sort clothes into “save” and “give away” piles, the sixyear-old daughter came across a garter belt. “What’s this?” she asked. “It’s a garter belt,” the mom said. Seeing that meant nothing to her, mom added, “It’s for holding up stockings.” “Ah,” she said, carefully placing it in the “save” pile, “we’ll use it next Christmas Eve.”

I think I have found the secret to inner peace. I read an article that said the way to achieve inner peace is to finish things I had started. Today I finished two bags of potato chips, a chocolate pie, a bottle of wine and a small box of candy. I feel better already.

Marlene Haws Ph: 826-4859 • Well, finally! We got one pretty good little rain storm last week and a couple of sprinkles since then. Now, even as I write this, we are getting another little shower. It smells good enough to eat! Harriet Priska reports that 30 John Hopkins University Cyclists, who will be doing a 4 K ride for cancer, will be coming to Escalante, from Boulder, on Tuesday afternoon, July 17th. They will be staying overnight at the Escalante High School. Upon their arrival, around 3:00 P. M. The Potato Valley Lions Club will have lemonade and ice water for them at The Pavilion. Dinner will be served to them at 6:00 P. M. provided by various businesses, individuals and organizations. If anyone could furnish a salad or fresh fruit, or volunteer in any way, please call Harriett at 826-4720. A nice sized 4th of July group gathered at the park for dinner and a movie. Everyone was invited and donations were made to the “Playground Equipment Fund” for the park. They watched the movie “Sandlot” and all agreed that they enjoyed it so much they will probably do another one around 24th of July time, so watch for it! There are donation jars at the stores and if anyone would like to contribute by telephone they can also call Mindy (Munson) Peterson at 826-4422. Pat and Bobbi Coughlin made another emergency trip to the hospital in St. George last week where Pat had 5 more stents put in his heart. That makes a total of 14 now. He had a serious attack while the doctor was doing the procedure, so he was in the right place at the right time to prevent something worse. Always on the side of optimism, they said they had a great view

of the 4th of July fireworks from Pat’s hospital room! They are back home again and doing okay. Pat is supposed to take it easy for a few weeks but, knowing him, Bobbi may need help in seeing that he does that! I received an e-mail from Jean Barney Ikard , who lives in Roanoke, Virginia. She got a taste of the big wind storms that went through the Eastern States. She said it was the most frightening storm she has ever witnessed. Wind gusts of 60 t0 80 mph for about 40 minutes. After a weeks time some people were still without electricity, but she was one of the lucky ones whose power came back on the next afternoon and clean-up was minimal to what some people faced. Dallas and Emilee Clark, Cannonville, brought their kids over to spend the afternoon at Calf Creek. Tyler and Jenifer McLemore came to town again, from LaVerkin, to spend time with Marc and Susann McLemore and Lane and Geraldine Liston. I have an idea it is a little cooler here than in LaVerkin. Cleo and Mary Lyman, Heber City, were in town for a couple of days. They visited with Howard and Sandra Miller and other relatives. They also paid Robert Haws a visit. Cleo and Robert have a lot of stories in common after the years they spent drilling for oil overseas. Janeen Duncan came from Loa to spend a few days with her parents, Arnold and Deon Alvey. When they weren’t shampooing carpets they were bottling apricot jam. If everyone doesn’t get apricots this year it’s their own fault ‘cause there are plenty of them around. Lynn and Sarah Barney have bought a house

in Enoch and will soon be moving there. Now grandpa and grandma Barney (Wade and Shelley) will have to get used to being without those boys all over again. Lynn works on the oil rigs and the commute from his work to Enoch is probably easier. We will miss them. Tanya Taylor, Tari Cottam’s sister, and her three children went back home to St. George after spending a week or so with the Cottam’s while they were moving. I think she kinda likes it here! Rob and Sally Goulding, Hurricane, are home from their LDS Mission to Samoa. They were the speakers in the Escalante First Ward last Sunday. Rob was our high school principal a number of years ago. Dustin and Stacey Shakespear and family came from Kanab to spend the weekend at the Shakespear cabin over at Boulder. They invited Ryan and Tari

Cottam and family to spend the afternoon with them on Saturday. Dustin’s parents, Ed and Camille Shakespear also joined them. Everyone should have a mountain cabin for summertime! Our condolences to Barry and Linda Barnson and their extended family at the passing of Barry’s mom, Bobbi Barnson, Junction, Utah. Our sympathy also goes out to the family of Doren Smith who passed away at his home on July 5, 2012. His parents are Garneal Smith and the late Jed Smith. His brother Dane and wife Sharon Smith live in Colorado and have three children. He has two sisters, Vida and husband Dee Frost, with 7 (?) children, Monticello, Utah; and Tina and husband Ron Fuller who now live in Nebraska and have 5 children. Doren will be sorely missed. He was a great friend to all who knew him and was a loyal Moqui fan!

Taylor - Potter

Jerry and Monica Taylor are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter

Whitley Morgan to Chase Dee Potter son of Ronald and Vera Potter. The couple will be married on Saturday, July 14th in the LDS Jordan River Temple. The pleasure of your company is requested at the receptions to be held in their honor: Saturday July 14th 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. At Tabiona Ward Building 3800 West 3750 South Tabiona, UT or Saturday August 4th 7:00to 9:00 p.m. At the Taylor Residence 485 West 400 South Escalante, UT Dancing to follow both receptions. The couple is registered at Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

L. to R: Dennis Lott, Elaine Lott, Emilee Woolsey and Valerie Sparks. Escalante - Dennis Lott took his two daughters, Elaine and Emilee, and their friend, Valerie, to Homer, Alaska for a fishing and sight seeing trip. As you can see the fishing was great. They said they didn’t break any records but sure had fun trying. They had beautiful weather, lots of good fish to eat and enjoyed seeing the surrounding country. They also brought home pictures of a bear that they took right along the highway.


Summer Reading Program

We saw STARS at our summer reading program on July 3rd! All the children were giving STAR fans as they arrived. We danced to “Reach for the Stars” and divided into groups. One group did star crafts; a kaleidoscope of constellations, colored their star fans, and more. Another group went into the STAR Lab, which is owned by USU and housed at Thanksgiving Point. In the STAR Lab, we had our very own star expert, Liz Pace, teach the children about constellations, the stars, and phases of moon! Kids and adults alike loved the experience of the STAR Lab. The last group went outside to hear fun books read under a tree. It was a really fun, informative program with around 120 in attendance! We want to thank our volunteers, Liz Pace, Bonnie Brown, Ellen Anderson, Lauren Jackson, Jocee Morrell, Madison Davis, and Charlotte Williams. A special thank you to Mary Sorensen and GayLynn Peterson for getting the STAR Lab for us and for all their help! They do great things for our county. Search for and like us on facebook!

LEGAL NOTICES LEGAL NOTICE OF OPPORTUNITYTO COMMENT Bybee Culinary Waterline Burial Project The Forest Service, Fishlake National Forest, Fremont River Ranger District is preparing a Decision Memo pursuant to 36 CFR 220.6 (e) (3) for the Bybee Culinary Waterline Burial Project. The decision would approve special use permit holders to bury 200 feet of polypipe from an existing spring on National Forest System (NFS) lands; T25S, R2E, Section 2, to a cabin owned by the permit holder. The cabin owners have water rights to the spring and have an overland line in place for present use. The proposal to bury the line would prevent the line from freezing in the winter and minimize line breakage and associated repairs and water loss. Line burial would be implemented using a mini-excavator and hand tools. The trench would be approximately 2 feet wide by 3 feet deep. Incidental tree removal may occur. The trench would be filled following installation of the water line and allowed to re-vegetate naturally. The proposed trench crosses 200 feet of NFS lands. A headbox would be placed at the spring site for water collection to feed to line. The proposed action description and other information are available at the Fremont River Ranger District,

FYI PANGUITCH By: Mack Oetting ~ E-mail: mackoetting Pat edits my column each week, last week when I mentioned that there was a Stake wide fast for rain, I said I hope it works. Pat took out the I hope it works out, and said I was of little faith, as usual she was right, it rained Wednesday night. I feel that with Monsoons getting here in July instead of August, maybe, just maybe we might be blessed with a wet summer. The Shingle fire up near Duck Creek really benefited from the moisture and the residents were let back into their homes last Saturday, scary. The Shingle fire has already burned over 9,000 acres. July 4th was really safe and sane this year, because of the great danger for fires in our area, our Fire Chief Dave Dodds called off the fireworks and the City banned any private lighting of their own displays. We only had one incident in our area and since our Governor refused to have a State wide ban, it was left up to the local governments to put this in place. Bryce Canyon City and Panguitch Lake also joined in the halting their displays. The vegetation is so dry, that the Shingle fire was started by an ATV exhaust, and 11 fires have been started by target shooters in the State. We have a great target range here, have your kids use it. At least you got to sleep in on the Fourth, no bombs going off in your front yard. This kind of reflected at the Lions Club breakfast, usually we have people lined up waiting to start and our first customers showed up about 7:45, however after that we really had a good

turn out. Many thank to the PHS students that showed up to help, especially with the clean up. I had to go to work out at the Park so I missed the Parade, it is my favorite. Check out the new front on Victoria Lanes store on Main Street. This store is owned by an artist named Becky Whitney. Her husband Kevin built this classy front onto her business, where she has art work and quilting supplies. Becky also has a store in St. George and teaches art classes there. I hope you took advantage of the open house at the new Court House. All I can say is wow, who ever designed this building, didn’t leave one thing out. Our tour guide was Commissioner Pollock and Les Barker and like most addition, the original part of the Court House was really small. Leland said that a lot of the cost of the building went into the Court room, the security in the old court room was none existence. A full time metal detector is in place, there are two rooms, where lawyers can talk to prisoners through glass windows. Plenty of rest rooms in each area and the windows and doors are finished beautiful. Judge Russell Bulkley was also a guide; he took over 1500 pictures of the construction of the building and there was a twenty minute video of his pictures playing in the Commissioners chambers. He said that Kim Fullmer put the slide show together which was lots of work. All of the offices are now big enough to conduct business, a good example

is the building department, the old one was a closet, it barely had room for two desks, now there is plenty of room to read blue print and plans. This is a first class addition to the town, that all of the County can be proud of. Hiding in the background during all this construction was Camille Moore who made sure that it was all we expected. Camille truly is a home town hero! Thank you Camille and all the county employees who helped; your effort certainly will not go unnoticed. Lamont Olson’s, nephew is visiting and they have been fishing up at the Lake for the last four days and Lamont reports that they had caught and released over 100 fish. I was up there Saturday afternoon and there were at least 50 boats on the Lake, so business is good. This Saturday is the race from Ruby’s to Cannonville, a half marathon. This is a really big event for the area, with around 1500 runners competing in this race and a 5 K race from Cannonville to Kodachrome. Panguitch gets many of these runners, with them staying here and busing from Zions Bank at 4:30 am in the morning to Ruby’s. Next week is a biggy in Panguitch. Starting off with the Fiddler’s Fest on Thursday and Friday nights, the 19th and 20th at the Social Hall. On Friday evening prior to the Fiddlers Fest, will be the “Taste of Panguitch” and it will be held behind the Zions Bank. For five bucks you will get food from most of the businesses

in Town. Saturday morning will be the last Lions Club Breakfast of the summer, so don’t miss out on all you can eat great food. Because the 24th is on Tuesday this year, the High School rodeo will be held from Thursday thru Saturday, on the 19th to 21. The High School Nationals are held at this time and the top two riders in each event from each state go to Nationals. Panguitch kids are the third through the tenth riders from each event in the Western States and they are good. On Saturday the 21st the killer event will be here, the Desperado Duel, this a double loop race. It goes out to Red Canyon, on over to Antimony, back to Hwy 89 and home to Panguitch and lunch. The second leg is up to the Lake and Cedar Breaks and back to Todd’s Junctions and Hwy 89 to Panguitch, completing the 180 mile ride, just in time for a body transplant. The summer is flying by so take in some of these events. Congratulation to Fire Chief and Former Mayor of Escalante Donny Porter for his 2012 Volunteer of the year award, His award was presented by Lieutenant Governor Greg Bell. He received a nice write up in the UVU Straight Tip magazine. It is the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy magazine that is distributed to all firefighter and emergency service personnel through out the State, quarterly. Don’t forget to get your cars ready for the demolition derby to be held at the County Fair. This years ATV rally will have an ATV that will be raffled off. Chances for the ATV will be part of your sign up fee, as will some meals and guided tours, all for one price. Panguitch has probably the best trails anywhere; you can ride from here to Canada or down to Mexico. Great trips out to Loose or Castro Canyons or over to Parowan and also out to Sanford road. All of these trips are guided, for the locals this is a good way to find out where these places are, so you can go by yourself. Enjoy the heat. December is just around the corner. Mack O.

She was born on April 16,1928, the eleventh child of thirteen children born to Robert Barrowman and Edith Maude Snyder Gleave, in Burro Flat (Widstoe), Utah. She will be remembered for her love for life, and the joy she brought to so many lives. She was a great mother who made sure her children and Grandchildren were treated fairly and with love. She loved the outdoors and made sure each of her children enjoyed many experiences such as, fishing, hunting, Dutch oven cooking, and many family trips to the mountains. All of her grandchildren will miss what became known as "Grandma Bobbie’s" breakfast which consisted of bacon, eggs, hash browns and hotcakes in large quantities. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in many callings. She was a public servant for 16 years where she served for 4 consecutive terms as Piute County Clerk /Auditor.

She was honored for duties as a County Clerk/Auditor and in her roles in the Association of Counties. She loved Piute County, Utah, and most importantly this great Country we live in, and wanted to be involved where ever should could. She was outspoken and firm in her beliefs and worked for what she felt was right.

Doren Smith

ESCALANTE - Beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, Doren Wayne Smith, 56, passed away July 5, 2012 in Escalante. He was born August 5, 1955 in Panguitch to Jed Earl and Garneal Porter Smith. Doren was well known and loved by everyone in the Escalante/Boulder area because of his willingness to help in any way. Helping not only those he served through his job as a South Central phone service technician, but in anything that he was capable of helping with. He had a way of befriending everyone with a smile, a casual conversation or a pleasant jest. His underlying caring came through in all his moods to comfort those around him. His love of sports and competitive spirit surfaced in so many of his activities. Those who took him on in competitions of any type knew they had a battle to endure because he would pour all his efforts into the win; bantering lightheartedly with those he conquered or creating new challenges for those who conquered him. He studied statistics of professional sports from a young age making him hard to beat in fantasy sports or sports trivia. Doren was a devoted fan and an unfailing supporter of the Escalante High School boys and girls basketball teams. His extensive viewing of sports gave him a good eye for the game and he was not shy about informing the officials of erroneous calls. His support of the youth in the area went beyond just sports fan. He would not turn away any student’s fundraising at his door even if it left him with more purchased items than he needed. During visits with friends he has been known to sit down with the children of the family to help them with homework, encouraging achievement in academics and sports. Doren was well known in the community for his skills in landscaping and gardening. He amassed large quantities of natural rock, working them into walls, walkways, and artistic displays. His rock work, tied together with his gifted abilities with flora and energetic drive to construct, created a beautiful, useful yard that is pleasing to wander through. The vegetation he cared for included a fruit orchard and a large garden that was generously donated to anyone who would ask. Doren was a dedicated hunter. He knew the countryside from his early days of hunting with his father and his love to explore the area around Escalante. He and his father were of the same mind and they worked together as a team when hunting. He shared this hunting talent with others, helping them become better hunters. He was a devoted son to his mother, visiting his mother at the care center regularly. His visits were never short and included fruit and produce from his garden, visits with other residents and nursing staff. Doren is survived by mother, Garneal, Panguitch; brother, Dane (Sharon) Smith, Firestone, CO; Vida (Dee) Frost, Monticello; Tina (Ron) Fuller, Valentine, NE; many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by father, Jed. Memorial services will be held Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. in the Escalante High School Auditorium, 800 East Hwy 12. Friends may meet with the family one hour prior to the services. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at

September August July12, 23, 20, 2010 2009 2012


Even if your children are grown with families of their own, you can probably remember scenes of sibling rivalry when they were younger. In some families, the competition continues into adulthood; for others, it decreases as children mature. But it can all come flooding back while trying to divide up your estate after your death, as your children argue over who gets what. If you die without a will, a court will decide, based on state law, who will inherit your property. The result could well be contrary to your wishes. You have worked hard and accumulated assets - house, car, jewelry, investments, family heirlooms, etc. It is risky to simply expect your children to divide your assets evenly or work the distribution out for themselves. It is sure to create problems and mount expenses of probate, and your heirs will have to put up with court-appointed people making the family decisions. While many people worry about the federal estate tax, the truth is most of us won’t have a tax problem under the current tax laws. But there is another tax that should be considered when formulating your estate plan – the “family tax”. The family tax should be of great concern. It is the emotional “tax” of the hard feelings paid by children and grandchildren when


you do not express your wishes legally. It is also the financial price paid by charities that you would have gifted some of your assets to. You can make it easy on yourself and your loved ones by taking a few simple steps to ensure that your estate is in order. Whatever the size of your estate, large or small, the first step is to have your intentions put in writing. You can do this either in a basic will or a will plus the trust documents that will be needed to carry out your wishes. An estate planning professional can help you make the best decision for your individual financial and family situation. Once you have a plan in place, it is usually a good idea to discuss your wishes with your family. If a family mem-

ber has questions about the details, or has any quibbles, you can explain your reasons for structuring your estate plan as you have. Often a simple and direct explanation that makes sense to your family will set their minds at ease, and prevent future hard feelings. While your family shouldn’t dictate your actions, they should be informed about them. It is also a good idea to discuss division of your personal property. The method of making a list with a description of the property items and who you’d like to have them – with input from your

children – can alleviate any hard feelings later. Putting together an estate plan is not as daunting as it might seem at first, and it pays big dividends in the long run. Not having an estate plan in place can cost you not only in dollars and cents, but could also cost you family discord. Jeffery J.

BLM to issue a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Alton Coal Mine KANAB – The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Kanab Field Office (KFO) announced that it will issue a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) for the Federal Coal Lease Application from Alton Coal Development LLC. Alton Coal seeks to lease Federal coal on 3,581 acres (more or less) of public and private land near Alton, Utah. The BLM made a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) available for public review from November 4, 2011 until January 27, 2012. The BLM received approximately 177,000 comments during this time. Additionally, the BLM has worked closely with other agencies through the entire process, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Park Service. Because the BLM is committed to providing the best analysis possible, the SDEIS will address issues raised to date, including wetlands and air quality, and provide increased protection measures for the Greater sage-grouse habitat. BLM anticipates that the SDEIS will be available for public review and comment in early 2013. Public meetings on the SDEIS will be held in concert with the comment period.

Terry Messmer, Utah State University Extension wildlife specialist LOGAN, UT – As the hot summer months begin, so does the risk of snake bites. Utah is home to 31 species of snakes. Of these, only seven are venomous and are commonly called pit vipers because of the pit located between the nostrils and eyes. The seven venomous species include sidewinders, speckled rattlesnakes, Mojave rattlesnakes, Western rattlesnakes, Hopi rattlesnakes, midget faded rattlesnakes and Great Basin rattlesnakes. The most commonly encountered of these is the Western rattlesnake. Since most snakes in Utah are non-venomous, most human-snake encounters are generally not dangerous. However, if you encounter a venomous snake and are bitten, the consequences could be serious. New research has found that the toxicity of venom varies greatly between individual snakes, both young and old. Pit vipers generally inject large amounts of venom into hunting bites, but often little or no venom into defensive bites. In fact, up to 25 percent of pit viper bites in humans are non-venomous “dry bites.” A provoked and angered snake, however, might not only “load up” to be quite venomous, but may also strike several times. Most venomous snakes are peaceful, retiring reptiles that flee for the underbrush when they encounter humans. Unless they are hunting rodents, rattlesnakes strike only in self-defense. But if you step on one or try to capture it, a rattler will

retaliate with a rapid strike that can be debilitating or even lethal. In 1988, the University of Southern California Medical Center analyzed 227 cases of venomous snakebite, covering more than a decade, and found that 44 percent occurred during accidental contact, such as stepping on the animal. More than 55 percent, however, resulted from the victim’s grabbing or handling the creatures, and in 28 percent of these cases, the victims were intoxicated. It is important to be snake wise. Consider this information. • If you encounter a snake, it is best to leave it alone. Even dead snakes have been known to bite by reflex action. More than 7,000 venomous snake bites are reported each year in the United States, with nine to 15 of those bites being fatal. If you encounter a venomous snake, it will greatly reduce your risk if you simply leave the area. • As a general rule, poisonous snakes have elliptical pupils and a single row of scales on the underside of the tail. Non-poisonous snakes have round pupils and two rows of scales on the underside of the tail. Most pit vipers in Utah have a series of rattles on their tail, hence the name rattlesnake. When these snakes are encountered, the rapid vibration of the rattles warns intruders. However, not all rattlesnakes will rattle when disturbed, so when you are in areas where rattlesnakes are known to live,

pay close attention to where you walk, sit and place your hands. • If you hear a rattlesnake, stand still until you can locate it. Do not try to jump or run, as you may end up within the snake’s striking range. Rattlesnakes can be found throughout Utah in sagebrush, pinyon-juniper woodlands, sand dunes, rocky hillsides, grasslands and mountain forests at elevations ranging from sea level to timberline. • Snakes are classified as non-game animals and are protected by Utah state laws. A person cannot collect or possess a live wild snake without receiving a Certificate of Registration from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. With human or domestic pet and livestock safety concerns, a venomous snake may be killed without a certificate. • Non-venomous snake bites are harmless. The only concern may be for potential infection. If bitten, clean and sterilize the wound much like you would a cut or abrasion. • Bites from venomous snakes will almost instantly show signs of swelling and discoloration of the surrounding tissue. Other symptoms include a tingling sensation, nausea, rapid pulse, loss of muscle coordination and weakness. Also, bites from pit vipers will have two characteristic fang marks as well as other teeth marks. • When someone has been bitten by a venomous snake, there are many things you should not do. Do not allow the person to engage in physical activity such as walking or running. Carry the person if he or she needs to be moved. Do not apply a tourniquet to the area above the wound and do not apply a cold compress to the bite area or cut into the bite. Do not give the victim stimulants or pain medications unless instructed by a physician. Do not give the victim anything by mouth, and do not try to suction the venom, as doing so may cause more harm than good. • All venomous snake bites should be considered life threatening. When someone has been bitten by a venomous snake, time is of the essence. If possible, call ahead to the emergency room so anti-venom can be ready when the victim arrives. Keep the victim calm, restrict movement and keep the affected area below heart level to reduce the flow of venom. Wash the bite area with soap and water. Remove constricting items such as rings, since the affected area will swell. Cover the bite with clean, moist dressing to reduce swelling and discomfort. Monitor the victim’s vital signs (pulse, temperature, breathing, blood pressure). If there are signs of shock, lay the victim flat and cover with a warm blanket. Get medical help immediately, and if possible, bring the dead snake to the hospital if it can be done without further risk of injury.

TORREY NEWS Adus Dorsey Everybody loves a parade, especially when it is in Wayne County. Without an accurate account of attendees at the Torrey Apple Days celebration it was estimated that at least a million people descended on Torrey Town on the 7th of July, and since no one was counting there was more floats present than at the Macy Day parade, and they were better. This years parade Grand Marshall was life-time Torrey resident Madonna Hunt, and Citizen / gardener of the year was Janet Hansen. Both were presented a bouquet of flowers in front of the Chuckwagon right after the presentation of the colors by the local Boy Scouts. Curtis Cook and Jennifer Howe proudly represented the sometimes mis-understood and often times under rated Torrey Town Council; next in line were the Wayne County Commissioners Rob Williams, DeRae Fillmore and Tom Jefferies. 2012 Candidates for County Commission Newel Harward was styling in his souped up red panel wagon and Joe Brown and his proud daughters with their signature Brown family smiles followed in his newly polished red pick-up. If Betty Ross had been in attendance, (and maybe she was) she surely would have been proud of all of the replicas of her Red, White and Blue American flags displayed on Julia Dieffenbach’s float and Chud Tuttle’s three wheeled motorcycle. Big thanks to George Coombs for braving the huge crowd in front of the Chuckwagon and announcing the long stream of parade float entries. Café Diablo & Gary Pankow’s “Pie Wagon” float was this year’s first place winner. Rumor has it that his restaurant staff made and delivered individual pies to almost everyone on the parade route. If you didn’t get one make the drive to the Gifford House at Capitol Reef National Park on any given day and give Monica five bucks and she will get you one, or visit the Café Diablo for lunch or dinner and desert. There was some minor confusion about the parade route and whether or not the long time Wayne County parade tradition was discontinued about the parade going both ways. But an immediate kaboosh was put on that idea and the parade marched right back down Main Street much to the delight of some unsuspecting travelers that found themselves part of the Apple Days parade or what they thought to be Candid Camera moment. As part of Torrey’s Apple Day celebration vendors of all types lined Main and Center Streets with just about everything imaginable, from Bernie’s solar water heaters to William Hurley’s knives that look like something from the dark ages and Maridee and Dennis Hiskey’s miniature farm fences and wooden boxes. There were Red wood rocking chairs and enough jewelry that even Mr. T really wanted to attend but he had already made a previous plans, but he did promise to come to

Torrey next year and bring along a Liberachi impersonator and long time friend Wayne Newton. After the parade formally disbursed most of the decorated floats disappeared into local sheds and garages and were stripped of all their Apple Days decorations and returned to their uncelebrated lives as utility trailers for hauling four wheelers and manure. With out even a gap in the Saturday celebration the Torrey Town Park and pavilion picked up the pace and was filled to capacity with about every kid in Wayne County and else where waiting to have as much fun as was physically possible. The Wayne High students provided games and prizes. The multiple colored inflatable castles and slides provided a place where parents could insert their kids in one chute and pray they would come out a half an hour later in another, occasionally a parent or two would have to go in the inflatable maze to retrieve or assist a lost child, or maybe it was just an excuse to be a kid again. At eleven o’clock the Torrey park pavilion parking lot filled with about a thousand people and was lined with tables and five pound Apple pies for the annual Café Diablo pie eating contest and a $100 prize to the winner. With a final ½ lb scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream participants were read their rights, disclaimers and warnings about the dangers of consuming massive amounts of apple pie in one sitting. No one seated at the participants table seemed to care because a Ben Franklin $100 bill was on the line. After five minutes of much encouragement from the growing crowd and excruciating and engorgement by the pie eating participants Arron Torey, crawled away the winner claiming victory and the $100 bill having consumed 59 ounces of his Café Diablo Apple pie. Arron was unavailable for comment and is reportedly recovering in an unknown location. At the Torrey Ward house at one o’clock Paula Pace, Becky Pace, local children and the much missed talents of Kay Durfey and also the members of the “Rough Around the Edges” provided a musical tribute to all veterans and present members of the United States Armed Forces for their service. As a United States Marine Veteran of these United States of America that proudly served during the Viet Nam era the recognition and sincere gratitude shown during the Torrey Apple Days performance at the Torrey Ward house was one of the most proudest moments I have ever experienced. Filling out the afternoon of entertainment was the musical event of the day at The Entradra Institute with a line up that would have rivaled anything in Nashville or Branson Missouri. The all too infrequent local artisan and musician Larry Estridge kicked off the musical afternoon on the Entrada stage with a very nice and delightful set fol-

lowed by the talented Mark Baysinger. Teasdale’s Steve Lutz and local all time favorite Will Barclay and down county Jim Robinson, filling in for Barry Scholl played next. Benjamin Johnson took to the stage at around 3:20. Shantell Ogden wowed the crowd with her national musical expertise for about an hour that gained her many new local groupies and followers. Torrey’s own local house band, Jan Stringham, with Bernie on bass and vocals, Lynsey on fiddle and Tys on drums took to the stage and showed off some new stuff they are working on. As a finale National Finger picking champion and world renowned finger picker Chris Procter finished the evening with a melody of tunes that had the Entrada crowd reminiscing about the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, interspersed with present and past Chris Procter original tunes. Even Gene Russell was so impressed with all the talent at the Apple Days Entradra event that he has promised to pick up his guitar again and start work on a set of his own before he begins work on the Torrey DUP restoration project he will be starting soon. Soon after the stage at the Entrada Institute was being cleared the stage at Torrey’s own Big Apple outdoor dance hall was filling up. The Mark Owens Band began setting up sound equipment to provide what has always been an annual summer outdoor dancing event in Torrey. The newly refurbished dance floor and the Big Apple stage is a result of the intense and dedicated efforts by many past and present volunteers like Jan Stringham, Paul Brown and his employees, Bruce Phillips and Brown Brothers Construction, the Coffee family and many, many community volunteers that provided most of the needed community service hours to complete the project. The Mark Owens Bands provided a fine finish to a wonderful day’s celebration to all things American. Much, much appreciation goes out to all the individuals, volunteers, participants and sponsors of the Torrey Apple Days celebration; it would not and could not happen without YOU. Not to be over looked are all the other activities taking place in Torrey and Wayne County on a weekly basis. Zumba with Jasley and Tanya Taylor continues and is growing every Tuesday night at the Big Apple. Reading is fun with Faun at the Wayne County Library on Tuesday afternoons, bring your kids and make reading fun. If you haven’t been to the girl’s softball games at the Lyman ball field on Thursday evenings you are really missing out. Presently it is the most intense and nail biting events taking place in the Wayne County area on a weekly basis. Personally, I would hate to be the recipient of anything that had to do with a bat and these Wayne County women. They deserve and demand respect on and off the field.
