Women’s Redrock Music Festival Offers Music By Women, For Everyone TORREY - The 6th annual Women’s Redrock Music Festival exceeded expectations, even by the organizers who had anticipated a great festival. Held August 10th and 11th at Robber’s Roost Bookstore in Torrey, the festival attracted over 600 attendees, vendors, and volunteers. Torrey’s mayor Adus Dorsey welcomed the festival goers, and the town of Torrey placed signs at both ends of town welcoming the music festival visitors. The area’s motels, bed and breakfasts, guest houses, and campgrounds had been booked for months preceding the festival. Café Diablo, a festival food vendor, anticipated the need of the crowds and opened for breakfast for both Saturday and Sunday. Carol Gnade, festival director, is happy with the enthusiasm of the businesses in Torrey who have helped foster a good working relationship with the festival. Each year, as festival goers from cities as distant as Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix and New York City converge in Wayne County, word of its beauty, warm friendly residents, and fantastic music gets out and the festival continues to grow and improve. The Festival provides a scholarship to a deserving young woman interested in studying the arts. Scholarship

Squirrel Causes Outage in Boulder BOULDER - Garkane Energy Consumer/Members in the Boulder area experienced a power outage Thursday, August 15, 2012 due to a squirrel that had climbed into a voltage regulator. Power was out to the area for about five hours. Garkane was first notified at approximately 10:00 am of the outage. Garkane crews began searching the line to locate the problem. Crews discovered a squirrel that had climbed into a voltage regulator. The activity of the squirrel triggered bushings to flash over both phases and caused the outage. The regulator and other equipment damaged by the squirrel had to be replaced. Power was restored to the area at approximately, 3:00 pm that day. “We’re sorry for the inconvenience any power outage causes. We strive to restore power as quickly and as safe as possible”, stated Rob Wolfley, Garkane’s Garfield Area Manager. “We appreciate your patience.” Garkane reminds its customers to plan ahead for power outages. Choose an easily accessible closet or cupboard for an emergency supply of flashlights, batteries, blankets, and other needed items. —Garkane Energy

Extra Cow Elk Permits

That’s a lot of badges: Eagle Scouts Uriel Zubia and Joseph Vasquez proudly show the results of their dedication to scouting.

Eagle Scouts Honored PANGUITCH - Joseph Vasquez and Uriel Zubia were awarded the Eagle Rank by the Boy Scouts of America on August 19th at the Panguitch 3rd Ward, Unit 681, Court of Honor. Dozens of merit badges were presented, along with several scout badges, a couple of 1st Class ranks, and the Life rank to Bosten Englestead. The scout leaders have had the boys very busy this summer with many interesting scout activities. Uriel (16) is junior at Panguitch High School. He is the son of Uriel and Michelle Zubia. Joseph (13) is a Panguitch Middle School student. His parents are Alberto and Meri Vasquez. Each boy wanted to have their fathers make the Eagle presentation, who were very proud of the opportunity. Joseph may be the youngest scout to earn the coveted rank in the Panguitch District. Each of these young men are prime examples of the living the Scout Oath and Scout Law. As they continue to live the ideals of scouting, their futures look bright indeed. Each new Eagle expressed their appreciation to parents, scout leaders and friends for helping them to reach this important goal in their life. —Norm McKee

SALT LAKE CITY - Dry conditions have led to extra chances to hunt cow elk in Utah this fall. Anis Aoude, big game coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, says Utah’s elk herds are doing well. But dry conditions this year have affected plants on the ranges elk rely on in the winter. To help protect the plants, on Aug. 16, the Utah Wildlife Board approved 1,450 additional cow elk hunting permits for this fall’s hunts. Aoude says the extra permits will allow extra hunters to hunt in northern and eastern Utah. “Winter ranges in central and southwestern Utah are doing much better,” Aoude says. “Additional elk do not need to be taken in those areas at this time.” You can see which units have permits, and the number of permits available for each unit, on the Web at emergency/12-08-16_emergency_elk_permits.pdf. Sept. 6 is the first day you can get a permit. Starting at 8 a.m., you can buy a permit at Permits will also be available at DWR offices and from more than 300 hunting license agents across Utah. Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR, says you can have up to two cow elk permits each year. “If you already have a permit,” she says, “this is a great chance to get a second one.” If you already have a cow elk permit, or two cow elk permits -- but you’d rather hunt on one of the units that has additional permits -- you can surrender your current cow elk permit for a chance to get one of the additional permits. You must surrender your current cow elk permit before the season the permit was issued for begins. You won’t receive a refund for the permit you surrender. For more information, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office or the DWR’s Salt Lake City office at (801) 538-4700

“Willow Stories” Travels to Boulder BOULDER - “Willow Stories,” a Navajo basket exhibit curated by the Utah Arts and Museums, and sponsored locally by the Boulder Arts Council, is currently on display in the Boulder Community Center Gallery through October 12. This Utah traveling exhibit features basketwork created by four generations of Navajo women, and illustrates how the role of the basket has changed over time in their society. For various reasons, Navajo basket weaving was on the decline until the 1970’s, when a revival of these traditional skills took place among communities in the Monument Valley area. A new hybrid style of weaving developed using animals, humans and geometric designs to depict traditional beliefs, stories and legends. “Willow Stories” showcases ten contemporary Navajo basket weavers from Utah, including their photographs and biographies. The exhibit may be viewed on Wednesdays 11-2, Saturdays 10-2, and during other hours when public meetings are held at the Community Center. —Dianne Oberhansly Wayne Phone: 435-836-2622 Garfield Phone: 435-676-2621 Fax 1-888-370-8546 PO BOX 105, Escalante, Utah 84726

SALT LAKE CITY - In September, experts on invasive species will gather to discuss the most pressing issues on aquatic invasive species management. The Western Regional Panel on Aquatic Nuisance Species (WRP) will hold its annual meeting at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center in Salt Lake City September 5-7 hosted by Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Aquatic invasive species cause tremendous damage to our economic and natural resources. Whether conducting thousands of boat inspections, tackling tsunami debris, or developing habitat restoration plans managers and biologists work in a fast paced environment where they must anticipate and react to damaging aquatic invasive species. Aquatic invasive species pose a serious threat to our rivers and lakes, and re-

quire comprehensive management strategies to protect our water resources. “The Panel annual meeting is an important gathering for those dealing with invasive species” says Larry Dalton, AIS Coordinator with UT Division of Wildlife Resources and WRP Executive Committee member. “Keeping the communication lines open is critical in protecting our water resources from invasive species”. The WRP addresses both coastal and inland management issues that deal with aquatic invasive species. During the annual meeting next month participants will learn from informative lectures and discussions to foster coordination of aquatic invasive species management among western states. The WRP Annual Meeting is a public event. To learn more about the WRP and their annual

meeting, please visit http://www. “Utah Division of Wildlife has stepped up to host the annual meeting,” reports Leah Elwell, Coordinator for the WRP. “Their determination to bring together invasive species experts for this meeting is indicative of their strong program to deal with AIS in Utah”. The Western Regional Panel on Aquatic Nuisance Species was formed in 1997 to help limit the introduction, spread and impacts of aquatic nuisance species into the Western Region of North America. This panel of public and private entities was formed by a provision in the National Invasive Species Act of 1996 (P.L. 101636), the amendment to the 1990 Act. The Panel members hail from state, federal, tribal agencies as well as many research and non-profit entities. —Utah DWR

USDA Seeks Value-Added Producer Grant Applications WASHINGTON, DC August 16, 2012 – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today invited agricultural producers to apply for grants to increase the value of their products. “Producers can greatly enhance the bottom line of their businesses and improve their economic prospects when they improve the value of their products, thus expanding their markets and customer base,” Vilsack said. “The Value Added Producer Grant program (VAPG) has a proven track record of doing just that and I am pleased to announce that we are inviting producers to apply for these grants by the deadline. The funds in this program enable America’s farmers, ranchers and rural business owners to find ways to expand their product offerings, revenue streams and create more economic opportuni-

ty by bringing additional value to what they already produce.” Applicants have until October 15, 2012 to apply. USDA Rural Development is making up to $14 million in grants available for projects that help farmers and ranchers produce bio-based products from agricultural commodities. The grants, which are competitively awarded, are available for planning activities or for working capital expenses, but not for both. The maximum grant amount is $100,000 for planning grants and $300,000 for working capital grants. Generating new products, creating and expanding marketing opportunities and increasing producer income are the goals of the VAPG program. Businesses of all sizes are encouraged to apply, but priority will be given to operators of small and medium-

sized farms or ranches that are structured as family farms, beginning farmers or ranchers, or those owned by socially-disadvantaged farmers or ranchers. Grants are available for projects up to 36 months in duration. For information on how to apply, see page 48951 of the August 15, 2012 Federal Register, fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-08-15/ pdf/2012-20082.pdf USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, has an active portfolio of more than $172 billion in loans and loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America. —USDA Rural Development

New Study Prompts Closer Look at Farm Pesticide Safety SALT LAKE CITY - A new look at the effects of a common farm pesticide on children has stepped up calls for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to further restrict, or even ban, its use. The farm insecticide chlorpyrifos is in wide use on Utah farms and feedlots, and it’s on the hot seat again, due to a new study from Columbia University that says the chemical appears to affect boys’ brain development more than that of girls. The latest of many safety

studies followed the same children from birth to age 7. It found that boys exposed to the chemical had lower memory scores than girls, a key risk for a lower IQ. The EPA phased chlorpyrifos out of indoor and home use beginning in 2000, and concerned watchdog groups have been asking for a full ban since 2007. Last month, the EPA revised its standards for spray drift. Now, when farmers apply chlorpyrifos, the spray can only contain two pounds of ac-

tive ingredient per acre, down from six pounds. For all crops except citrus fruits, the standard was already two pounds or less. The EPA says farm workers can limit their exposure with personal protective equipment, including double layers of clothing when mixing or loading sprayers. The agency is set to re-evaluate chlorpyrifos in 2015. Challengers are asking that it be done sooner. —Utah News Connection

You needn’t file an amended return because of simple math errors – the IRS will automatically make corrections and bill you for any additional tax required (or increase your refund). Nor must you file a 1040X if you forgot to attached tax forms or schedules to your return. The IRS will send a request if it needs them. However, you should file an amended return if you: Received additional or amended tax forms or statements from employers, banks or investment brokers after you filed your return (e.g., W-2 or 1099 forms). Forgot to report income. Overlooked tax deductions or credits you could have claimed. Claimed deductions or credits for which you weren’t eligible. Didn’t claim a dependent you were entitled to, or claimed someone you shouldn’t have. Chose the wrong filing status. One last tip: If you’re going to the trouble of filing an amended tax return for a specific reason, review the entire original return carefully for any other deductions, credits or exemptions you might have missed the first time.

Our goal is to manage the use of OHVs in partnership with other federal and state land management agencies, local governments, communities and interest groups so as to protect public lands and resources while providing opportunities for the safe use and enjoyment of OHVs on designated roads, trails, and designated open areas. Please help us with this effort by riding responsibly and being safe. For additional information, please contact Bryan Carter – Forest Trails Coordinator at 435-896-1047. —Fishlake N.F.


on your federal income tax return after having already e-filed or mailed it, you may file an amended return using IRS Form 1040X (at www. The following rules apply: Amended returns cannot be e-filed; you must submit a paper version. Submit a separate Form 1040X for each year’s return you wish to amend and mail them in separate envelopes. Generally, you must file Form 1040X within three years from the date you filed your original return or within two years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. If your amended return involves changes to another schedule or form, you must attach a revised version of that schedule or form. If you’re filing to claim an additional tax refund on a recently filed return, wait until you’ve received the original refund before filing Form 1040X. You’re allowed to cash the original check while waiting for any additional refund. On the other hand, if your amended return will result in you owing additional tax, file it right away to limit interest and penalty charges that might accrue. The normal processing time for a Form 1040X is eight to 12 weeks.

Not every interaction with the IRS must necessarily induce flop sweat. Case in point: A few years ago a friend of mine decided his income taxes had become sufficiently complicated to merit hiring an accountant. After examining previous tax returns, the accountant discovered my friend had claimed the standard deduction for two years when he should have itemized expenses. He filed a couple of amended tax returns and voila – the IRS wrote him checks totaling more than $1,200. Of course, not all taxfiling mistakes end on such a happy note. Sometimes people find out after submitting a return that their employer had sent an incorrect W-2 form, or they forgot to report self-employment income, or they incorrectly claimed someone as a dependent. Although it’s tempting to let such mistakes slide, chances are the IRS will discover the error eventually, and when they do you could be liable for interest and penalties going back to the due date of the original tax return. Worst case: You could even face criminal charges for filing a fraudulent return. Here’s a guide to when – and how – you should file an amended tax return: If you discover an error

Ideas for Managing Produce Overload A lot of folks here in Escalante are in “Produce Overload!!!� What to do with it all right NOW!!! I was just chatting with Lillian and got a couple of ideas... #1. Too many grapes? Especially seedless grapes: Wash, put on tray to dry and then bag and freeze. Good for winter snacks and better than candy...great on cereal or for cooking. #2. Too many tomatoes? Rinse, dry, bag freeze. Better than processed. Same for all kinds of peppers... #3. Zucchini invasion? Grate zucchini in the cup sized measurements you will need for your zucchini recipe and freeze for later on. #4. Lots of corn? Trim and blanche for 4-5 minutes in boiling water, put in cold water, and then when cool cut corn off the cob and freeze. #5. Peaches abounding? Peel, slice into freezer box, 1 pint needs 1/2 cup of sugar sprinkled on top and then freeze. —Harriet Priska

TORREY NEWS Adus Dorsey Wayne County proudly held its own Olympic style closing ceremony at the county fair Saturday night after the Wayne County Search and Rescue Demolition Derby. The dedicated members of the Loa and Lyman volunteer fire departments magnificently lit up the night sky over the Wayne County rodeo grounds and filled the Wayne County star filled sky with fireworks explosions of every color while families stood silently together watching. The theme for the Wayne County Fair this year was “Saddle Up For Fun�, and it was fun thanks to a long list of wonderfully motivated individuals on the Fair Board under the direction of the Wayne County Clerk Ryan Torgerson. Also to be highly commended are the Wayne County Commissioners Tom Jeffery, DeRae Fillmore and Rob Williams. And for all of us that made the sometimes thirty mile plus round trip to Loa everyday at noon for our yearly complimentary barbecue sandwich provided by our constantly smiling and helpful friends that always have a “great day� at American West Bank, a Hot Dog made by the employees at Harry’s (Brian Farm IFA) and ham and Swiss cheese sandwiches put together in the parking lot of Royals Food Town. It wasn’t so much the type of food or how much it didn’t cost us that was provided by our friends at American West Bank, Brian Farm and Royals Food Town for lunch that mattered, it was the food for thought and the human kindness and common decency we have come to expect that mattered the most. It is just these types of community oriented opportunities where as a community we can sit down together at a long table of people next to someone you might not know, and for a few minutes set aside the prejudices and misconceptions some have about one another, and really examine the things in life we do have in common, the very things that together can make a difference in all of our lives. Accidental as some of us might think, our most enlightening moments happen when we ask for them the most. Support the local services and businesses in Wayne County, because we all benefit when we do. Starting off the Wayne County Fair week was the monumental task of choosing the royalty that would repre-

sent Wayne County in 2012. In a day long competition contestants gathered at the Wayne County Courthouse for interviews, lunch with judges and photos at the Loa Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP) tithing building in Loa. The intense competition was then moved to the multi-purpose building at the fair grounds where all the contestants were required to perform jingles, dress up in evening gowns and answer on stage questions under the watchful eye and scrutiny of a panel of professional judges. After a long deliberation by the judges, Danielle Batty was crowned Ms. Wayne County, with 1st attendant Amber Cook and Jocee Morrell as 2nd attendant. In the junior class was Ms. Jessica Jeffery, with Little Ms. Alex Christenson and 1st attendant Kenzy Jeffery. Also proudly representing Wayne County were Saren and Casity Faddis and Megan Sorenson. The Wayne County Royalty were present and wearing their crowns and sashes at all the Wayne County fair festivities during fair week. On Tuesday, fair contestants entered Fine Arts Exhibits starting a 9 a.m. at the Wayne County Court House. Home arts & crafts by local citizens and 4H members submitted their creation at the Civic Center. The opening ceremony and signing of the National Guard “Community Covenant� took place at the Loa Town Park and pavilion, a delicious dinner was provided by Wayne County Athletics Inc. By far the most memorable event of the 2012 Wayne County fair of 2012 were the two United States military Blackhawk helicopters filled to capacity with two top United States Army Generals, celebrated brass and staff members descended onto the Loa Park for the Community Covenant signing. All the supportive and participating Wayne County community leaders in Loa, Lyman, Bicknell, Torrey and Hanksville in attendance participated in the countywide “Community Covenant� signing event. Mary Kay and the Duos Band provided an evening of entertainment as the Blackhawk helicopters lifted off and disappeared into the western horizon. On Wednesday morning local artisans continued entering Fine Arts, Home and 4H crafts and the kid’s pet show took place at the multipurpose building at 9 a.m. 10

a.m. until noon it was free swimming and pool games at the Wayne County pool in Bicknell. The once a year free-swimming event attracted so many Wayne County adolescent participants that extra chlorine had to be added to the pool system as a safety precaution. At 7 a.m. Thursday morning the mini sprint triathlon took place in Bicknell, many late sleepers had to wait to hear the race results until they entered their perishable items such as flowers, garden and canned goods at the civic center. The chasing of chickens, greased pigs and racing stick ponies during the small fry rodeo at the Wayne County Fair grounds Thursday evening surely was meant to provide an insight of what life is like for a rodeo clown, and what the world will be like for those kids that don’t pursue a decent college education. Friday at the Wayne County Fairgrounds the “Extreme Horse Competition� was really intense. For many of us that do not know what it is like to be a Wayne County Cowgirl /Cowboy this extreme horse event explained a lot. Opening a gate while seated in the saddle, your horses ability to deal with un-familiar conditions and sounds, your own ability and expertise as a horseman to instill in your animal the trust you have in yourself and in her/him to spin, walk sideways, backwards and load into a trailer without hesitation. In the national arena, with a welltrained and trusting horse expertly performing these events can net a good cowboy / girl a minimum of 25 thousand dollars per event. The Wayne County Rodeo under the direction of Chad Lyman was Wayne County horsemanship at its finest. Barrel racing and some of the finest roping you ever have seen was on display by local cowboys like Darren Nelson, Travis Pace, Tyler Torgeson, Shane Durfey and many others. Crowd favorite s were the maiden, cowhide and trailer races. There was also a long line waiting to ride wild broncos and the most unruly Brahma bulls in Utah, (Bulls 10 Bull riders 0). The wild cow milking contest and ribbon race wore out many a pair of new Wrangler jeans from Burn’s Saddlery in Salina. Saturday ultimately provided a big part of the entertainment for the Wayne

County Fair. At 7a.m. many insomniacs and members of Jasely Taylor’s “Body Rockez� club in their fluorescent green T shirts and health minded individuals took to the back streets of Loa for the 5K run while the rest us were thinking about getting out of bed or pouring ourselves a bowl of Wheaties. At 10 a.m. the Wayne County Fair parade began. Everybody that is anybody in Wayne County lined Main Street in Loa as Cory Anderson provided live parade commentary in front of the Wayne County Courthouse. Lewis and Donna Blackburn were the parade 2012 Grand Marshals followed by the who’s who of Wayne County and all the familiar parade participants like the Wayne County Commissioners, Joe Brown Democratic candidate and Newell Harward Republican candidate for the open Wayne County Commissioners seat. Wayne County has a long tradition of making the most of parades. Square dancers, farm equipment, local services the likes of Royals Food Town, Loa Builders and Brian Farm, Maria’s Grill, the Wayne County royalty and many others proceeded down Main Street in Loa. To conclude the Wayne County fair, exhibits in the Courthouse and the Community Center were open to the public. The Loa Town Park was filled to capacity with happy people and it seemed everyone in Wayne County was walking around in Loa with a Blue Ribbon or a big smile. Not to be forgotten were the winners of the Wayne County Veterans Memorial drawings, Cow Pie and rubber ducky contest, the Wayne County Search and Rescue Demolition Derby and rifle raffle and the fireman fireworks finale’.

It doesn’t matter if you are a new student in the District or a returning student you will find our schools are representatives of outstanding communities whose expectations have always been excellence in education. I know our local schools are the life blood of the communities. With these high expectations and standards in mind, the District has been preparing for the arrival of the new school year by placing highly qualified teachers in all classrooms in the District. We have filled all teaching positions to provide our students with the highest level of education possible. The District has invested in technology by purchasing new computers for all teachers. We have increased the number of computers available to students in classrooms and computer labs. We have worked with UEN to install broadcasting equipment in all three high schools allowing the District to stream classes within between all three high schools. We will be streaming six classes between high schools which will allow students a larger selection of classes in their schedules. For the past two months we have anxiously anticipated the arrival of the new school year. Many decisions have been made to improve the education of the students in Garfield County School District, like offering additional classes to students, providing professional development for teachers to attend Core Academy, improving the facilities by resurfacing parking lots and play grounds, installing new heating and cooling systems, replacing carpet, and purchasing new copy machines just to name a few. All of these things and many more will improve the quality of education we can provide to your students. The District will continue to work to meet the high expectations of the communities.

The Bobcats baseball team just keeps on rolling. At a tournament in Richfield they played three games and came away the winners. They beat Manila and Bryce Valley to get into the finals game with the Wayne Badgers. This game wasn’t as easy as the first time they played them, but the Cats came away winning by six runs. The Lady Cats Volleyball team had their first game last Thursday against the Beaver, Beavers. Both the freshmen and the JV teams came away with some pretty easy wins. However in the Varsity game it was a different story. The Ladies missed 10 serves in the first game and got beat 25-15, it didn’t look very good. In the second game it was a completely different story, the Cats got their serves in and won the second and third games by a 25-18 and 25-16 scores. However the Beavers woke up and took the forth game. In the fifth game the Lady Cats never trailed and ended up winning 15-8. The Cats are a very young team with only one senior on the team. Charri Frandsen really out coached the Beaver Coach in her first outing. The JV’s went down to Dixie to play in a tournament and by winning their bracket got into the Gold round and lost in the semi finals. Tonight the Cross Country team has their first race in Bryce Valley. The problem with the team is many of the kids play baseball and volleyball and we won’t see the best until later in the season. I don’t have a schedule of the games, when I do I’ll will let you know when the games are played. Now is the time to get your season tickets, it’s good for all year.

Citizen comments included Mrs. Lisa Crane, and Mrs. Tina Anderson expressing their concern over the resignation of Scott Ellett as the track coach. They felt there needed to be more School District support for the track program, as well as other athletic programs in the district. They are concerned about the lack of funding and also a lack of interest for the Track and Cross-Country programs. The board and these parents that may help with some funding issues, suggested some new ideas. They were also encouraged to take their concerns to Mr. Elmer and the WHS staff.

A Round of THANK YOUs A big THANK YOU to Ryan Torgerson and the entire Wayne County Fair Board for a wonderful, exciting, successful and eventful fair this year! There are many hours donated by many people to make the annual Fair a success. There are also many unsung heros/heroines who quietly go about their respective challenges without fanfare. We also many have county employees who go above and beyond their own personal job responsibilities to help out where needed. We appreciate each of you and your commitments each year to making sure we have the “World Famous Wayne County Fair”. We KNOW just how much work/time/effort it takes to bring everything together. Thanks also to our contributing merchants and business people who support the Fair. Let’s support them and give them a special Thank You the next time we frequent their place of business. This is a fund tradition that brings all of us together as citizens of Wayne County. —Marsha & Don Chappell, Loa The Wayne County Fair was a huge success this year and it wouldn’t have happened without the help of the Fair Board, the Wayne County Commissioners and all of the other volunteers that helped with it. Everyone deserves a great big THANK YOU for your efforts. —Ryan Torgerson, Wayne County Clerk/Auditor

THANK YOU To my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. —Farah, Marc, Tessa, Cameron, Dacey

Find the “Janes” and “Johns” in Your Life: Forgive, Be There & Love Them By Cynthia Kimballl A speaker in church on Sunday spoke about his sisterin-law, Jane*, who committed suicide. Apparently, she had gone off and done things, even up until her death, that were not always Christ like. When the family all congregated around the time of her funeral, they went around the room with their thoughts. One of Jane’s brother’s sobbed uncontrollably and wished he hadn’t judged her. Others seconded his comment and added they’d wished they loved and reached out to her more. Hearing this story made me think of a talk I’d heard on BYU TV, “Lay Aside the Things of This World, and Seek for the Things of a Better” by Sharon Eubanks, of LDS Humanitarian Services, from this year’s BYU Women’s Conference. Sister Eubanks (2012) asks, “What do you need to lay aside? What’s getting in the way of your peace?” For the family above, perhaps judgment, embarrassment, disappointment, disagreement, hurt, grudges, careers, hobbies, and time were just some of the things that got in the way of loving and being there for Jane. Sister Eubanks (2012) alludes that “…we all have them” essentially, we all have things that get in our way (perhaps even, of doing the right thing/s). One has to wonder, would Jane still be alive today if someone or several had loved, reached out more and not judged her? We may never know the answer, but, hopefully, you can be there, forgive and love a “Jane” and or “John” in your life no matter what choices they’ve made and are making. Sister Eubanks provides four steps to help lay aside things of this world that can even aid in connecting once again to those Jane’s and John’s. Those steps are: 1. …approach situations with humility. You don’t know everything that’s going on. You aren’t the only one that’s right. We all have pieces of

the truth, but we don’t have the whole thing. And only the Lord has the whole thing. So be humble, because your perception could be wrong. 2. …be a builder. Assume that other people have good intent even if you aren’t in agreement—that they aren’t just stupid. But they actually want things to work out maybe as much as you do. Jesus was a master at building with the available materials. Satan tears things down. So emphasize what is positive and what you have in common, and then see what happens. 3. …practice tolerance and love. Forgive slights, and when you can’t feel that way, when it just feels too hard for you to do, then go to the Father in prayer and ask for some help. Because the power of the Atonement can change the way we feel, and it can change the way we perceive things, and it can change the way we act. And that brings unity. 4. …when something has to change, then deal with that person directly— and then practice one, two and three above. Their success is really your success. Let me give just a couple examples of some of these things. This

world operates by the doctrine of Nehor, and that is that we prosper by the things that we hoard, by the things that we obtain, that we get, that we buy. And Jesus has counterintuitive doctrine to that. He says the things that we secure for our real, permanent life are the things that we absorb, the things that we sacrifice, the things that we lay aside, and the things that we forget. (Eubanks, 2012) So, my friends, as you go about your life, look for those “Jane’s” and “John’s” you may have judged, avoided and even stop loving because they embarrassed, wronged, hurt, or disappointed you. Get rid of the grudges. Get rid of the anger and hate. Get rid of the awful feelings you’ve carried around and save a life. Not just “Jane” and or “John’s” but yours, too, and all those others that you lead and are watching you.

Newspaper? I was visiting my son last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper. “This is the 21st century,” he said. “I don’t waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPad.” I can tell you this, that fly never knew what hit him.

Interview Assignment My mother, who could pass for 50, was celebrating her 70th birthday. I phoned to say our family of seven wouldn’t be by until later in the day as some of the children had morning commitments. To prepare her for an interrogation when we arrived, I explained that her third grade grandson’s assignment that day was to interview an elderly person. A firm believer in getting homework done, my mother saw this as a legitimate excuse for our delay. “Of course,” she reasoned, “he’ll have to do that before you can come here.”

Mom announced to her family, “Tomorrow morning I’m going to make an oldfashioned breakfast with eggs, ham, biscuits and grits.” The five-year-old daughter groaned, “But, Mommy, you know I don’t like eggs.” Mom then reminded her of all the food the little girl liked that contained eggs. The next morning, when the daughter walked into the kitchen, Mom said, “Since you are here first, you can decide for the family. How do you want me to cook the eggs?” The little girl answered, “In chocolate cake, please.”

Language Skills A friend of mine mentioned that she had an appointment with her son’s Spanish-Immersion kindergarten teacher. I knew that regular parent-teacher meetings were not due for a while, and when I asked if there was a problem, she related a conversation she’d had with her son. “Mom I can speak three languages now!” he said excitedly. “Three?” she questioned. “Yes” he replied proudly. “English, Spanish and Inappropriate.

It is being bound in a three ring binder and will give the Jesse Jessen family fond memories and pictures to treasure. The Henrieville Elders Quorum held a social and Lance Jagger cooked a pig over an open pit fire. The food was delicious and everyone had a great time. School starts this coming Tuesday. I hate to repeat myself but where in the heck did the year go to? Wow!! Are you ready for Christmas yet? It will be here before you know it. Believe me. The Garfield County Fair was fabulous I have been told. If anyone had anything to report on the fair I am willing and ready to report it for you. It happened while I was out of town. At BYU for Education Week. If you want an uplifting time in the fall attend the Education Week put on by BYU. It is great. In Henrieville the Stake Presidency spoke as well as returned missionary Cache Mortensen. He also spoke in Cannonville Ward with Marc McLemore. In Henrieville Adam Platt did a beautiful job of singing and old hymn, “Onward Christian Soldiers”. In the Tropic Ward the speakers

were Wade Moore and Greg Christensen with the choir doing a wonderful job of singing “I Need Thee Every Hour”. Klin Chynoweth was in charge of the 1977 BVHS Class Reunion. They held it at the location of their old High School, Bryce Valley Elementary. This was the 35th year reunion and ten of the alumni were in attendance. They spent a great time together and got reacquainted with each other. The college kids are all heading back to their schools. We wish them a successful school year. In Cannonville Ward Brianna Nelson was advanced into Young Women. Tracy Clark, son of Dallas and Emily Clark was baptized. Coming up Saturday is the Rim Run at Bryce.

Check with your leaders for more details. Drove into town and wondered what was changed and then it was called to my attention that the weeds had been cut down on the vacant lot across the street. It looks good. Thanks to those responsible. The Enoch folks are struggling with the flooding. Mike Jensen, our son, said it was so humbling and gratifying to see the community pull together and help each other to pump water from basements and even some upper floors. It was so fast and so strong that it happened before they even realized what was going on. Stacie was able to stop her basement from flooding too badly by grabbing the shop vac and going to town with it. Just as did many others. One man who was busy helping all the others went home at night to find that the sewer had backed up into

his own basement. How sad. We wish them luck in getting their homes into shape and it gives you a good feeling to know that they are all so willing to help each other. Just as the folks in our community do. It is a great feeling. Congratulations go out to Sheldon and Jaimie Pollock on their new little baby. I have not been able to get many details yet but I will.

by Marlene Haws ~ 826-4859 • What a month for reunions! I sent my news in early last week so I could be in Richfield on Saturday, 11th, for the Escalante Ladies Reunion. It was hosted this year by Bernice O. Jolley, Otter Creek; Renee R. Porter, Escalante; and Ruth R. Baugh, Tropic, and they did a great job. Eighteen ladies were in attendance including: LaVee A. Wiscomb, Mapleton; Ilene A. Coffman, Provo; Arta Beth A. Pollock, Taylorsville; Merle A. Hansen, West Valley City; Mary Ellen Coleman, Richfield (94 and one of the youngest acting ones in the group); Valaree M. Davis, Aurora; Janeen A. Duncan, Loa; Deon M. Alvey, Escalante; Jillyn H. Sorensen, Salina; Marlene M. Haws, Escalante; Dixie H. Yowell, Richfield; Virginia S. King, Orem; Betty Jean S. Dowdell, Provo; Rhoda R. Allen, Pleasant Grove; and Pauline Allen, Richfield. Norm and Ardis Christensen’s family went to the mountains for their annual reunion. On Saturday they had 86 in attendance. Included in this group were their Children: Chris and Tammy Christensen and family, who were the hosts this year; and the families of Mary and Sam Blauser, Vernon, Ut.; Julie and Arthur Lyman, Payson (?), Az.; Clyde and Terrie Christensen, Erda; Keith and Donna Christensen, Cedar City; Gary and Judilyn Christensen, St. George. Greg Chnristensen was there, but Beth was on a trip to Yellowstone with her mom and family. Jo Elynd and Matt Bullock

were off on a tour and didn’t make it back in time but their family was there. Vadis Green and family had other obligations so they didn’t make it. Freland and Phyllis Alvey, Rolain Alvey, and LaDell and Karen Alvey, Kanab, and their families also went to the mountains for the Forrest and Ruth Alvey Reunion. Like most other groups not all of them were able to make it, but I’ll bet they were wishing they could be there. Rolain Alvey was having cataract surgery in the middle of all the reunioning and she became a great grandmother again about that time. Jenifer and Todd Goodrich, St. George got a new baby girl. This makes 7 granddaughters for Tyler and Lisa Lyman. No boys, but if they were given a choice there probably isn’t one in the bunch they would trade. The Sons of the Pioneers had their campout on the mountain last week. There was a Large crowd at the pavilion last week also for a STAKE High Priest STEAK fry. DeLane Griffin had visitors that evening and they were able to enjoy that with him. The visitors were Amanda Hoffman and family who were just passing through. Amanda is the daughter of Wade Griffin, granddaughter of Rosella and Alburn Griffin. Margo Smith went to Salt Lake last weekend to spend some time with her son Jared and family. She deserved a break, she’s been on the run all summer at Cottam’s 66 Station and Subway. Jay and Derlynne Brooks

celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary on August 16th. That was also Jason and Dayna Porter’s anniversary, but they are just getting a good start on 32 years. Anyway, congratulations to all of them! Todd and Jill Phillips and family went to Salt Lake. One little boy said they were going to school shop the other one said to visit their grandmas. It was Tari Cottam’s turn to be frightened by lightning, during that last big rain storm. The lightning struck down below their house and the smoke began to billow up, but by the time she got to her phone it had started to rain HARD and put the fire out. I hope we don’t have any more of those electric storms! We welcome the rain, just not with the loud sound effects and danger of fire! Gary and Sandy Liston and Sandy’s mom, LaVon Shreeve , came from St. Johns, Az. for the baptism of their grandson, Treyson Clark, son of Emilee and Dallas Clark, Cannonville. Treyson was baptized and confirmed by his father, Dallas. Lane and Geraldine Liston were also there for the occasion. Afterward they all went to Calf Creek to celebrate the birthdays of Treyson and his cousin, Weston (son of Tyler and Jenifer McLemore), who was baptized recently too, in LaVerkin. Martha Schow went to Scipio to help celebrate the birthday of a little great granddaughter. She also attended the funeral of a friend in Fillmore while she was in the area. Marlene Stowe and

Marilee Miller spent the weekend in Kanab with their sister Anne and her husband, Frank Alleman. I don’t know if anyone else went with them, or not, but they said they enjoyed going to The Western Legends. Shondelle Gillins, Cedar City, and four little boys and Nathan and Elisa Lyman and two children, Kanab, spent the weekend here with Brent and Patrice Cottam and Richard and Debbie Lyman. They said Debbie wanted her kitchen painted for her birthday so Elisa and Nathan helped get that done. Smart move, Debbie, “Happy Birthday!” Have any of you been going to the Farmer’s Market? They say it is doing great . If you don’t get the fruit and vegetables you want this summer it is your own fault ‘cause everything has really been plentiful. Welcome to out of town visitors too! Thelma Marsh’s great grandson , Brantz Woolsey, is coming home from a LDS mission to Brazil just in time to see his brother, Caleb, before he leaves for a mission to Italy. They are sons of Darren Woolsey, Castle Dale, who is the son of Warren and Kathleen Woolsey, Cedar City. It has been a pleasure working with Ryan Davis while he has been the editor of the County Insider and it sounds like Erica Walz is really enthusiastic about taking over the reins from him. She says she will keep it pretty much like it has been and Ryan has been a good trainer. So, good luck to both of them in their future endeavors. Thanks, Marlene! —Erica

FYI PANGUITCH by Mack Oetting ~ mackoetting Looks like we are getting some more rain this week and the good news is while talking with Allen Henrie (City Manager) we will be getting at least a couple more weeks of ditch water. Allen says that the dam at the Lake is working very good and Panguitch being a natural lake we have springs supplying the badly needed moisture. In the twenty years we have lived here, it seems when the lake is low, we get the monsoons rains in July and August, saving our lawns. Tonight, Sunday there is a flash flood warning out for Kane County, hope all is well down there. This last week a lot went on, starting with the PTO’s New Year school kick off dinner, great hamburgers, hot dogs and a bunch of blowup slides and games. Tammy B. Houston is the PTO President and about 200 were fed. Hopefully Tuesday the first day of school will go alright, especially for the new students, it’s really important that the little ones have a good first day experience. There are still a few openings for the Head Start Program and you can enroll your 3 and 4 year olds at the school, behind Henrie’s Drive In. This program really works and will get your little ones off to a good start on their education. The Fair started on Thursday and with so many fun things to do, it was a big hit. With all the cars in the parking lot at the Triple C Arena many of you came to see what was going on. I may be wrong but the Triple C may be better suited for this event than the Fair building. The entire events can beheld in one place, from animal showing, to the talent show all worked out well there. There were plenty of crafts and quilts on display, what talent we have here in our County. The fish grab was a fun event to watch, with the little kids having their own side and I didn’t see any dads in the pond and the fish were pretty good size, the kids had a blast. Thanks to Kenny Allen for putting up the frame for the pond. There was a greased pole with a fifty dollar bill at the top and a boy from Bryce Valley got the loot, a lot of kids tried it before he fi-

nally made it. There were all kinds of games and blow up fun slides and sumo wrestling. There were dog and pig races that everyone seemed to enjoy. It wasn’t too long ago that there was talk about closing the fair down. But thanks to Tony Beckstead and his super Fair Committee it has reached great heights in entertainment. Each Committee member has their own area that they are over and boy do they take their job serious. Maybe the State needs to bring them up to SLC, to breathe some life into the State Fair. The Commissioners luncheon, hosted by the Panguitch Lions Club, fed over 400 hungry folks. Hopefully you didn’t have to wait too long in line. For those who asked, the corn and the Green River water melon came from Joe’s Market. This luncheon is a lot of work, but it is also a fun time and I hope you had a good time visiting and eating burgers with friends. The Peterson twins entertained and sang for two hours, they are the sons of Kathy Peterson the City Librarian and went to school here. They are also great artists and many of their drawing used to be on display at the fair, years ago. The Demolition Derby came up a little short on cars, there was still plenty of action and I hope you enjoyed all the crashing of steel and metal. I don’t know if the drivers are having trouble finding these old sixties and seventies boats, but all of the Derbies are having trouble getting cars. We will try again next year and see how it goes then, this is a very popular event with a large following and I don’t want it to end. The Derby is a great way to end the Fair. Many thanks to all of you that took part in the Fair making it a great success. In my sixteen years as a Panguitch Lion, I can’t remember ever having such great help from the members at all of the events that went on in Town this summer. These events are a fun time and all of the money raised goes back into the Community. The Lions are looking for some new members, some of us are getting a little long in the tooth, many of our best people are over eighty and

still plugging along. Some of the Lion’s donations are: $500 FFA youth animal sales, $300 Thanksgiving Dinner, $500 Sub for Santa, $300 Easter Egg Hunt, $1,500 for FCCLA, 2 $800 High School Scholarships to name a few. In the past, $10,000 to the GMH during their renovation, $3,000 for the Fire Station, $3,500 for play ground equipment at Park and $6,000 for the flag pole at the park. Today the 23rd is the start of the ATV RALLY. This is a great example of what happens when an effort is put into an event. Last year at this time there were 38 riders pre registered and this year so far there have been 143 signed up. There are 18 guided tours that you can ride during the three days, one I have been told is 130 miles long. Breakfast will be served the two first mornings, Thursday & Friday by the American Legion and it will run from 7:00 am to 9:00am, there will be a dinner also served one day. Each entry will receive a chance on winning a 4 wheeler. With rain expected on Monday and Tuesday it should make for some great rides, no dust. Locals get signed up, this rally will open up a whole new world of trails for you to enjoy after the rally is over. Cemetery news; new street signs have been put up at the cemetery to help people locate graves listed in the book. They were installed as an Ea-

gle Scout Project by Trey Barney. We are grateful to Trey, his leader, Scott Campbell, Bishopric Counselor Shawn Parkin and the group of young men who assisted Thanks guys. Those signs were printed incorrectly on one side, by the sign maker and we are in the process of getting them corrected. We hope you will be patient with the delay. Some fun: I advertised that there were four Llamas that were free to a good home and got a call from someone that wanted them. Last Thursday I went over to watch them to be loaded into a horse trailer. Llamas are not as cute as they look, when it comes to trying to get them to do something against their will. They spit this really ugly green stuff and kick up a storm and after two hours they gave up to let the animals settle down. The llama’s owner called Joe Nay in desperation, Joe told her he would see what he could do. Joe had them loaded in fifteen minutes and ten of those getting them calmed down and they just walked into the trailer. The llamas are now out in John’s Valley on a 400 acre ranch. Think Joe could make it as a llama whisperer? Do you realize that in another week it will be Labor Day and a signal that summer is over with? WAA. Mack O.

PANGUITCH - Mary A. Parkinson Black passed away August 16, 2012 in St. George, Utah. She was born June 17, 1925 at Andersons Ranch near Toquerville, Utah. She was the eighth child born to Thomas Earl and Mary Woodall Parkinson. She married R. Alden Black on October 23, 1944 in Hurricane, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized July 18, 1970 in the St. George Temple. Mary loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She always remembered their birthdays and made sure to send each of them a card. She was a wonderful homemaker and cook. Mary spent much of her married life in Panguitch, working at various cafes and for the Garfield County Extension Service. She also served in several LDS ward and stake callings. She is survived by her husband, Alden; children Kay Lynn (Theron) Roundy of Seward, Nebraska; Larry (Jayne) of Richfield, Utah; Mary Ann (Don) Adams of North Platte, Nebraska; and David (Fran) of St. George, Utah; brother Clifton Parkinson, 14 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents and seven siblings. The family would like to thank her special friends, Donna and Larry Barney for all of their support. The family would also like to express their appreciation and gratitude to the staff at The Meadows for their loving care and to the entire staff at DRMC, West One Floor, for their kindness and compassion.

Sleep Smarts: Sleep is an Important Part of Back-to-School Preparation (ARA) - Does your list of school supplies include sleep? Studies say it should, especially for teens. Only 8 percent of American teenagers are getting the required nine or more hours of sleep needed, according to the National Sleep Foundation. In fact, a recent study published in the “Journal of Adolescent Health” found that more than 60 percent of high school students get less than seven hours of sleep per night. The situation does not improve in college, either. A 2010 study conducted at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota revealed, not surprisingly, that 70 percent of college students get less than the 8 recommended hours of sleep. While most people have, at times, battled sleep issues, poor sleep habits plague college campuses. Let’s face it most college kids do not place a premium on a good night’s rest. In addition to sleep falling low on the priority list, most students are sleeping on cheap dorm mattresses and worn out pillows - which can affect sleep quality. Perhaps reminding your student that there is a proven relationship between healthy sleep habits and academic success might help encourage healthier habits. In 2010, a University of Minnesota study found a significant positive correlation between the amount of sleep per night

and GPA. Additionally, as the average number of days per week a student got less than five hours of sleep increased, GPA decreased. Once a pattern of bad sleep has developed, is it possible for teens and college students to “reset” their internal clocks? Researchers at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine say it is. Suggest that your students try following these tips, a little bit at a time, over several weeks: * Try your best to avoid caffeine, smoking, alcohol, heavy exercise and heavy snacking (pizza included) at least three hours before bedtime. * Don’t pull all-nighters or cram for exams late at night. Specifically schedule studying for when you’re most alert so your performance won’t be affected. * Be as consistent as possible with your sleep habits, ideally aiming to go to bed at the same time each evening and get at least eight hours of sleep per night. * Wake up at the same time every morning and head outside. Sunlight helps reset circadian rhythms, the body’s internal biological process that rotates around a 24-hour schedule. * Turn off your cell phone and laptop at night. Besides being a distraction, exposure to light can suppress the production of melatonin, a hor-

mone that aids sleep. * Make sure your bedroom is set up for sleep. If you are a light sleeper or your dorm is noisy, try wearing earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones. Keep the room cool and dark. Make your bed as comfortable as possible. Consider investing in a foam mattress pad and a quality pillow. For example, for around $100, you can purchase a mattress topper and a waterbase pillow, both of which greatly improve head, neck and back support while you sleep. “While you most likely cannot control the amount of sleep your teens or collegeaged kids receive, at least you can make sure that once they are in bed, the sleep they do get is of the best quality,” explains Maurice Bard, founder and CEO of Mediflow Inc., a company that makes waterbase bed pillows. “One simple way to accomplish this is to make sure your teens are sleeping on the right pillow - one that adjusts to properly support their head and neck throughout the night.” Countless studies have shown that people who get the right amount of sleep are physically and emotionally healthier - which is of course is something we all want for our children. Getting better grades is just the icing on the cake.

THANK YOU Words can never express how thankful we are for all of your love and support. You gave cards, money, smiles, flowers, listening ears, shoulders to cry on, food, LOVE, and some gave more than we will ever know. Know that it was through you that we were able to raise such a sweet child and it is with you we are finding the strength to let go of that same sweet child. THANK YOU. —The Jessens

God’s Concern About the Earth’s Enviornment... GOD said: “Frank, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there on the planet? What happened to the dandelions, violets, milkweeds and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan.Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon.The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colors by now. But, all I see are these green rectangles.” St. FRANCIS: It’s the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers ‘weeds’ and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass. GOD: Grass? But, it’s so boring.It’s not colorful. It doesn’t attract butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It’s sensitive to temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there? ST. FRANCIS: Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn. GOD: The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy. ST. FRANCIS: Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it-sometimes twice a week. GOD: They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay? ST.. FRANCIS: Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags. GOD: They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it? ST. FRANCIS: No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away. GOD: Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And, when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away? ST. FRANCIS: Yes, Sir. GOD: These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work. ST.. FRANCIS: You aren’t going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it, so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it. GOD: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. It’s a natural cycle of life. ST.. FRANCIS: You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away. GOD: No!? What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to keep the soil moist and loose? ST. FRANCIS: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves. GOD: And where do they get this mulch? ST. FRANCIS: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch. GOD: Enough! I don’t want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you’re in charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight? ST.. CATHERINE: ‘Dumb and Dumber’, Lord. It’s a story about.... GOD: Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis.

Marital Relationships and Inheritance

Boulder Mountain Realty, Inc.


A surprising number of marriages end with one spouse trying to disinherit the other. However, the law of most states protects both husbands and wives from being disinherited by the other. If a person fails to provide for his or her surviving spouse, or even fails to provide a certain percentage of the estate to the surviving spouse, the surviving spouse can demand and receive an â&#x20AC;&#x153;elective shareâ&#x20AC;? or forced share of the estate, as set by state law. This means that the surviving spouse can demand a portion of the estate, and, regardless of what is stated in the deceased spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will, the surviving spouse has a right to receive at least that amount. A spouse retains these elective share rights until and unless a decree of divorce is final. The exception is if the elective share rights are waived in a marital agreement. Marital agreements set forth in writing the exact agreement between couples regarding how much of each spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual assets (if any) will be distributed to the other upon the death of one of them. Often, each spouse will waive the right to inherit any of the assets of the other spouse.

It is preferable to execute a marital settlement agreement prior to marriage. Each party signs the agreement and knows, prior to the marriage, where they stand financially within the context of the marriage, and upon death of their spouse. Post-marital agreements (executed after marriage) can be executed if both spouses are agreeable to the settlement terms. The provisions of premarital and post-marital agreements serve to protect surviving spouses. When couples who each have children from prior relationships get married, each may have sufficient assets to be unafraid of being disinherited. Each one wants to provide for his or her own children upon death, and each spouse agrees to waive any share of the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate. They are happy to do so in order for their own assets to be distributed to their own children. The same concerns and considerations by couples who draw up a premarital or postmarital contract also apply

to couples who never plan to marry. As with marital agreements, safeguarding income and assets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and negotiating a cohabitation agreement in the event of termination of the relationship or death - is far easier to accomplish when neither party is angry, under stress and/or hostile. For peace of mind, often it is wise or convenient to have marital or cohabitation agreements drafted at the same time as estate planning documents. Consult your attorney in drafting any such important documents. The attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fee you pay may well save you a lot of money and heartache in the end. Jeffery J.
