ESCALANTE - The 10th Anniversary of the Escalante Canyons Art Festival-Everett Ruess Days held in Escalante, Utah on September 27-28 saw increases in participation across the board. More than 90 artists from near and as far away as Ireland and Belgium participated in the Plein Air Competition and of these, approximately a third were participating for the first time. The Speaker’s Series, which featured renowned western writer and NPR commentator Craig Childs as the keynote, engaged a large crowd on Friday night by discussing Deep Archaeology. Childs’ encouraged us to delve deeply into the land to see a history that goes back more than 20,000 years to the time of the North American Ice Age and the first people to arrive on this continent. Vendors selling art, photography, fabric goods, ceramics, wood crafts, and food were busy with customers both Friday and Saturday. And the entertainment ranged from locals talents – Brent Griffin & Ted Engberg, Making Moves Dance Company, and The Little Fiddlers – to those from further afar like Fast Pesos from Santa Fe, New Mexico and Juniper City from Cedar City, Utah. Plein Air artists could begin painting for this year’s competition on September 20 and were also able to enjoy
a one-day Paint-Out event – Paint the Town – painting in and around Escalante on September 25. For the Plein Air Competitions, prizes totalling more than $9000 were awarded in two categories: Oil/Acrylic and Mixed Media. (A comprehensive list of winners is included at right.) This year’s Best of Show winners included Lynn Griffin from Escalante for his oil painting titled, Daybreak Over the Escalante, and Janet Kupchick from Santa Monica, Calif., for her painting titled, Twelve Days on Highway 12. The winner of the Paint-Out Competition was Larisa Aukon of Phoenix, Ariz. During every festival, attendees are encouraged to vote for their favorite work to determine the winner of the People’s Choice Award—Jodi McGregor Peterson was the proud winner. Participating artists vote for their favorite piece and Jinseng Song of Florida was honored with the Artist’s Choice Award. To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the festival and honor the spirit of Everett Ruess and his art, a Founders’ Award supported by the generous donation of Winnie Washburn was presented to Janet Kupchick. Additionally at the award ceremony, the organizing committee recognized Wayne Geary, the 2013

Power Outages Caused by Rocky Mountain Power LOA - Wayne County and the northern system of Garkane Energy experienced another outage that lasted from 12:47 p.m to 1:58 p.m., on Wednesday, September 25, preceded by intermittent outages throughout the morning. This outage was caused by a similar problem on a Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) transmission line at Sigurd that feeds the Garkane system. Garkane Energy was at the mercy of Rocky Mountain Power crews to fix the solution because the problem was on a delivery line to Garkane’s system from the RMP power line. Garkane Energy is sorry about the inconvenience these outages cause, but these two recent outages were beyond our control.

The
installation is the result of the students visiting Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and surrounding areas earlier in the year and sharing their impressions of that experience using artworks suspended from chains under the shade ramada on the Escalante Interagency Visitor Center porch. All events were free as the festival is supported by the generous donations of area businesses, residents, organizations, and local, state, and federal government partners. The 2013 Escalante Canyons Art Festival Committee would like to give a heartfelt thanks to all the supporters, donors, volunteers, artists and festivalgoers.

Prescribed Fire Planned Near Antimony
RICHFIELD – Interagency fire and fuels personnel plan to conduct a prescribed burn in the Antimony area, under the direction of the BLM, Richfield Field Office. The Antimony project area is located in Garfield County, in the Deep Creek and Dry Hollow drainages. The project area is approximately 4 miles southwest of the rural community of Antimony, UT. Project implementation is scheduled to occur between the dates of October 1 through November 1, 2013. Exact dates will depend on the potential government shutdown, favorable environmental conditions, and the availability of adequate firefighting resources. Those who plan to visit the area during the aforementioned dates may be subject to smoke impacts and temporary road/trail closures. This prescribed fire plan is specific to units that have been mechanically treated. These units total approximately 1,120 acres. The primary objective of this prescribed burn is to reduce the existing wildland fire hazard by removing dense, closed canopy pinyon and juni-
per trees, thus reducing potential negative effects from future wildland fire to Federal, State and private lands, while restoring fire-adaptive ecosystems. The project will also help improve conditions for public safety, as well as, reduce the risk of large scale wildfire to private land owners, rangeland improvements, and natural resources within the project area. The prescribed fire will only be implemented within parameters that meet specific management objectives; these include but are not limited to temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, soil moisture, and fuel moisture. If environmental parameters are unfavorable, the project will be postponed until conditions meet the prescriptive criteria outlined in the prescribed fire plan. After the burn is complete, a mix of desirable grasses, forbs and shrubs-suitable to the site will be aerial seeded in November 2013.

Landowners Encouraged to Apply Now for Conservation Funding October 18th is sign-up deadline SALT LAKE CITY, The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is now accepting applications from private landowners and tribes for assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) and Agriculture Management Assistance (AMA) program. While the application process for these Farm Bill conservation programs is continuous, funding selections are only made once a year. “EQIP is one of the primary conservation program available to farmers for farm and ranch conservation practices, offering financial and technical assistance for numerous conservation practices,” State Conservationist Dave Brown said. NRCS continues to work in partnership with private landowners and conservation and agricultural groups to identify and prioritize natural resource concerns within communities across Utah.
This local guidance ensures that NRCS works collaboratively with landowners, land managers, and conservation partners to address and improve resource issues on a landscape scale. “Our mission is to solve natural resource problems by placing the money Congress invests in conservation with landowners who have a stewardship commitment to make a difference,” said Brown. Farmers can sign up at their local NRCS office generally located in USDA Service Centers statewide. NRCS anticipates nearly $14 million in funds for Utah producers. The deadline for filing an application for consideration assistance is Oct. 18th, 2013. For application information or assistance with the application process contact Kristi Hatch Westwood at the Panguitch NRCS office at 435-676-8021 or visit our website at www.ut.nrcs.usda. gov. —USDA NRCS
Best in Show
ESCALANTE - Escalante’s Lynn Griffin not only won Best of Show for his oil painting, Daybreak Over the Escalante during the Escalante Canyons Art Festival, but also regaled the crowd during the awards ceremony with a self-penned poem. Fortunately for all of us, Lynn seems to have gotten along just fine with the canvas he is holding above. But at the festivities he had another story to tell. Here’s how it went:
The Artist’s Canvas by Lynn Griffin
The canvas stared back at him, With its ruthless, intimidating glare. And mocked him without mercy, “Go ahead and paint me if you dare…” His paint brush seemed like wilted rubber, As he pressed it to the task. But then his courage failed him, And would not obey as he had asked. But somehow he rebounded, And pursued with faith undaunted. Alas, it was only fleeting, For his brush stroke was not as he had wanted. In frustration he threw down his brushes, And filled his hands with paint. And flung it at the wretched canvas-It would make Michaelangelo retch and faint. Again and again in raging fury he threw the paint. Colors splattered and some began to gel. He hated and despised this evil sadistic canvas, And cursed it to go to hell. With fingernails he dug and scratched the awful canvas, And made some deep wounded jagged lines. Then he took a serrated butcher knife, And without mercy…stabbed it several times. Then like Van Gogh, he sliced his ears, And cursed the mutilated, gessoed rag. How could he profess to be an artist, And paint something he could proudly brag? But the canvas only mocked him! With its ugly, insulting stare. He vowed to get even and swore, “I’ll frame you and enter you in the fair!” People will laugh and point at you, You’ll be humiliated and mocked in shame. But I will rise in triumph! For with my scarlet blood, I’ll sign a bogus name! The art critics and the judges, All gathered ‘round to see, Which of all the masterpieces The blue ribbon and gold medal would be. At first there was glee and merriment As they gazed upon the scene. There was fun and laughter, Until they came to the canvas, so brutal and so mean. Of a sudden and in hushed silence, A reverence fell upon the merry crowd. The canvas he had slaughtered, Made the multitude stop and heads were bowed.
P l ay i n g October 4 - 10
“Who painted this magnificent masterpiece?” They at once demanded to know. “It surpasses the greatest artists And is deemed better than the great Michaelangelo.” But no one stepped forward, To claim the coveted prize. And no one knew of the tormented artist That had signed with blood, anger and despise. The magnificent painting still hangs proudly In a museum of great refine. Many nations come to admire and worship The glorious masterpiece in its holy shrine

But what became of the poor demented artist Who had once been a man among men? People laugh, point and shout at him, For he has no ears, and vows to never paint again. He is poor, starving, and penniless, Lives in shame with constant fears. For the dreaded cunning canvas drove him crazy, And made him cut off both of his precious ears! So the moral of this sad, sad story (If there is one to be told) --Don’t cut your ears off—you’ll just look silly, And you’ll really need ‘em when yer grow’in old! As of last Saturday night Lynn still had both of his ears, and many of his paintings continue to hang in places of great refine.

Lee’s Ferry to Close with Government Shut Down
LEE’S FERRY - With the United States Government shutdown, all National Parks across the country are closed as of October 1, 2013. The closures will impact all recreational opportunities at Lee’s Ferry, Arizona, including the cancellation of all river trips. According to Grand Canyon National Park officials, river runners who have already launched downstream into Grand Canyon National Park will be able to complete their river trip. Glen Canyon National Recreation Area officials, who operate Lee’s Ferry, note that should the government shutdown go into effect, the closure of Lee’s Ferry will start with a “soft closure” beginning at 8:00 am, with a hard closure from noon on, after which no river trips will be allowed to launch. Kansas river runner Hilary Esry won the river permit lottery last year for an October
public trips while three are concession guided river trips. There are sixty-one river trips scheduled for the month of October, twelve of which are concessions trips and fortynine are public trips. Officials at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area also stated roadwork on the Lee’s Ferry road will continue, as the funds for that project are non-appropriated funds. River runners who have parked their vehicles at the long term parking lot at Lee’s Ferry will be allowed to retrieve their vehicles but this will require a law enforcement escort. Fishing at Lee’s Ferry, including from the bank and by boat, both public and guided, will not be allowed. The smooth water concessions river trips from the base of Glen Canyon Dam downstream to Lee’s Ferry will also cease operation. —Riverwire
7, 2013 launch date after first becoming interested in running Grand Canyon twenty years ago. “We have friends flying in from as far away as Alaska on non-refundable tickets and have spent over $17,000 so far in NPS fees, food and equipment rental. I have a contract with the Federal Government allowing me to launch, and so far, I have not been contacted from the National Park Service at all about a pending closure of the Colorado River in Grand Canyon” she said. “We expect to be on our own and except for the mandatory orientation at Lee’s Ferry, we do not expect to interface with anyone from the NPS. I can’t tell you how nerve wracking this is for our trip.” According to the Grand Canyon National Park web site, there are sixteen river trips scheduled to launch in the first seven days of October. Thirteen of those trips are
Help Available Navigating “Affordable Care Act” Marketplaces SALT LAKE CITY - Services are available in Utah to help residents navigate the online marketplaces that open today as part of the Affordable Care Act. According to Randal Serr, director of the Utah Health Policy Project, TakeCareUtah. org, which also opens for business today, will lead users to “Navigators” whose job it is to provide assistance registering for the ACA. “You can find navigators or other people that can assist you with these new options based on proximity,” Serr said. “So you’ll type in your ZIP code and the two or three places
insurance premiums are spent to benefit the consumer. “About 80 percent of the money we spend on health insurance has to actually be used for health care. Not CEO bonuses, not advertisements, administrative costs and those sorts of things.” Serr said the majority of Americans who already have health insurance will notice very little in terms of changes to their coverage. The Utah Health Policy Project is one of several agencies involved with TakeCareUtah.org. —Troy Wilde, Utah News Connection
closest to you will come up, where you can go to get direct one-on-one help.” Registering to purchase health insurance is done online at HealthCare.gov. The ACA is designed to provide affordable health insurance to the underinsured or those who have no health insurance. Serr pointed out that there actually is little direct government involvement in the health insurance part of the program. He said private companies compete for business in the open marketplace. Serr adds that the Affordable Care Act mandates that the majority of all health
U.S. Census Bureau: 15% of Utah Children Live In Poverty SALT LAKE CITY - The number of children in Utah living in poverty is not going down. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s “2012 American Community Survey,” 15 percent of Utah’s children live in poverty, which is down less than one percentage point from the year before. According to Terry Haven, deputy director of Voices for Utah Children, the small decline does not reflect any meaningful change. Parents and the government should put as much focus as possible on giving impoverished children the best education, she said, adding that research shows that kids who learn usually
go on to earn their way out of poverty. “We know that investing in kids and families pays off,” she asserted. “You know, you’ve got better school performance, when they get through school they have higher earnings as adults, and they have better health outcomes. Everything is better when we invest in our kids. “ According to the American Community Survey, the poverty rate for Caucasians in Utah is the lowest at 11 percent. It shows the rate is at 19 percent for African Americans, while the highest poverty rate in Utah is 29 percent for Hispanic Americans.
Haven noted that poverty has historically been much higher among minority communities. “I think we’ve seen nationwide and historically there have always been racial disparities in poverty,” she said. “And we know there has always been an over-representation of our ethnic minorities in poverty.” The American Community Survey also shows the poverty rate is at 13 percent among adults ages 18 to 64 in Utah. The poverty rate among the state’s senior population age 65 and over is at 7 percent. —Troy Wilde, Utah News Connection

UDOT Posts New 80 mph Speed Limits in Rural Areas
Crews Have Installed New Speed Limit Signs on Rural Sections of I-15, I-80 and I-84 SALT LAKE CITY - UDOT has just completed speed studies on several rural freeway sections and crews installed new 80 mph speed limit signs earlier this week. The speed limit has been increased to 80 mph in several areas of the state. Those areas are: · I-80, from the Nevada border to SR-36 · I-15 between North Leeds and Santaquin (with sections of 75 mph zones through two mountain passes and Cedar City) · I-15 and I-84 from the Brigham City North Interchange to the Idaho border The speed limit increase is the result of House Bill 83, passed during the 2013 legislative session, which allowed the department to study and establish speed limits higher than 75 on the interstate. UDOT’s data from speed studies of existing 80 mph zones showed that vehicle crashes have slightly dropped over the past three years, attributed to more vehicles traveling at the same speeds and less variation in the speed of surrounding vehicles. —Utah Dept. of Transportation

Students Enjoy a Blustery Day on Fishlake Mountan
Garfield School District Classes Online The way students receive education changes with technology. According to a study by the Babson Survey Research group, more than 6 million students, nearly one third of the total enrollment at postsecondary institutions, show that students were taking at least one course in 2010 in an online setting. The most recent research shows an increase of 560,000 new students enrolled in an online course in 2011. The bottom line is if a student is planning on enrolling in a post-secondary school, it is more than likely at some point they will enroll in on an online class. In order to provide the students in the District additional educational opportunities in online classes, the District has developed Garfield Online. Garfield Online provides curriculum from K12 and Aventa. This is same curriculum offered by Washington Online and Provo School District. Students in Garfield School District have the op-
portunity to enroll in Garfield Online regular courses at no additional cost to the student. Students must be enrolled in a high school in the District to be eligible to register for the online classes. The students must enroll in the online class within the first ten days of the quarter. They must also have room in their schedule to enroll in the online classes. The School Board has adopted an online enrollment policy with all of the specific information. Garfield School District is using the online school in three ways. First, it is being used for credit recovery allowing students to make up high school credit in classes where they have failed. The cost for credit recovery is $20 per class. Second, students and teachers are using the Aventa curriculum in their regular classrooms. Currently, the teachers are using the curriculum for physics and chemistry. Third, the students are utilizing Garfield Online by enrolling in an online class
with K12 providing the teacher and replacing their current face to face teacher with an online instructor. It is difficult to offer foreign language courses to students in the District because of expertise and endorsements needed in each language area. Garfield Online offers French, German, Japanese, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. Students have over sixty courses to choose from in all areas. If parents that home school would like to offer this curriculum to their students, they could do so by contacting the local high school principal. The District is also offering online TICE (Technology Intensive Concurrent Enrollment) courses to students in mathematics. If you would like additional information on Garfield Online or the online enrollment policy, please visit the Garfield School District web page. —Superintendent Ben Dalton

On “Windsday” September 25, fourth and fifth grade students spent the day on Fishlake Mountain at science day camp. Students were divided into groups and attended many different workshops taught by members of the US Forest Service, Garkane Power, and the Department of Wildlife Resources. Along with the day camp students in Mrs. Shanda Brown’s class have been learning all about matter. The students conducted a few experiments to explore the difference between chemical and physical changes and to learn about the molecular makeup of the substances in their world. “This is a really great group of kids, and so far we have had a great year,” said Mrs. Brown, “We
have been working really hard with our new math program. The students are really liking exploring new ways to learn math.” Ms. Davis’ second graders are trying hard this year to ‘Stretch Our Brains’. The main thing the class is focusing on is reading and reading a lot! “Reading during reading. Reading during math. Reading during science. Reading whenever we can,” said Ms. Davis. “We have a pretty good class library but would like it to be better. Donors Choose is a website that helps teachers get the things they need for their classroom.” Parents can make small donations to the classroom by visiting www. donorschoose.org/mjdavis. “It would also be great to have
volunteers come in and read with the students.” Serena Leavitt has joined the preschool teaching team this year. She has a lot of experience and loves working with small children. Director Mrs. Jan Brown said “Preschool is having a great start to an awesome school year. We have started with our shape a circle, colors pink and purple and the letters P and K and their sounds.” Students made Mother Goose popcorn and had fun making the ‘P’ sound as they talked about all the things that start with P. “We have another terrific group of students this year where we are looking forward to make learning fun and school a safe learning place.”
PHS Notebook by Donnie Corwin
School Pictures Snap Snap! Picture retake day was set for Monday, but had to be rescheduled due to a delay in the delivery of primary school pictures. However, this didn’t stop the cross country team from getting their pictures taken care of, and putting on their best “I love running!” smile for the cameras after school. Coincidentally, school pictures did arrive later that day, and the mixed reactions of “Oh I think I need retakes..” and “ Hmm… not bad!” were heard through the halls as students looked upon their own smiling faces. Monday was also a good day for charity, as a few of our own students helped orchestrate a blood drive for the members of PHS. As is usually the case, many lives were happily saved, and thus; many fears of needles bravely scuffed aside as students and faculty alike rolled
up their sleeves for the greater good. (They surely didn’t go away empty handed, though, as a steady supply of cookies, crackers, and juice was kept for those generous enough to donate.) All in all, it was a prideful day to be a Bobcat. On Tuesday, Morning Drama practices of “Into the Woods” filled the halls of PHS with a little bit of music. With the November dates set for the play, we can expect hard work and harmonies (for the most part) from the Panguitch theatrics crew. The sports schedule, as usual, was an exciting one for the week. Wednesday saw two great games, as our baseball boys faced off against the Valley Buffalos, and the volleyball girls battled here against the Wayne Badgers. On Thursday, the PHS cross country team went up to Escalante to
run their hearts out, and to try to keep up their winning ways. We ended the school week on Friday with a pair of home games, as our baseball team stepped up to the plate against Piute, and the volleyball girls played hard in an attempt to send the Buffalos back to Valley without a win. Friday was also exciting for the students of PHS, as the student council got a chance to have some fun with the student body. How, you ask? By hosting a glow-in the dark, clash of the classes, obstacle course-like activity! With no injuries, and the Bobcat morale seemingly higher, I can happily inquire that the activity helped end the week in a positive note!

Escalante High School News Making the Best of a Small School Escalante High School is an extremely small school. It’s important that we all participate in activities and have as much school pride as possible. Just like any other school, this school has its own stuff to make it unique. When it comes to sports, Escalante is very involved. All sports teams have done well this year. Baseball players played Valley on September 4th and Piute on September 6th. The cross country runners went to Wayne County and ran 3.1 miles. The cheerleaders are putting a new theme in the
gym. Since we’re all family, the new theme is the minions from the movie Despicable Me. All the sports couldn’t happen without the busses. We must have very bad luck because our brand new bus broke down on the freeway by Cedar City. The bus is repaired and ready to go. The most important people in this school are the teachers and staff. Without them, we couldn’t be a school. The lunch ladies take time out of their own day to prepare our food. Some of the teachers have very different, but good personali-
ties. Some of the teachers are always telling jokes. Some of them are so random you can’t help but laugh. Another funny teacher is the aide Fred, or as we like to call him the Lorax. If you could see his beard you would know why that name fits him perfect. We all think he’s a pretty good aide because he helps us all out as much as he can. We might be a small school, but we all have to make an effort to make the best out of what we have. —Brittany Bolyard

Utah Education Assn: Budget Surplus Should Go to Schools SALT LAKE CITY More income tax revenue for Utah means a state budget surplus. And Sharon GallagherFishbaugh, president of the Utah Education Association, says the $242 million surplus should benefit schools on the local level. Gov. Gary Herbert has announced that the surplus for the most recent fiscal year is
all in Education Funds. So, Gallagher-Fishbaugh says the money can make up for some of the serious budget cuts made to schools during the recession. “We’ve had cutbacks in terms of the number of teachers we have teaching,” she points out. “We’ve had cutbacks in terms of the number of paraprofessionals that are helping out in Special Educa-

tion classrooms. “So absolutely, I would hope it would go directly to classrooms to impact students and teachers.” The governor has said $120 million of the surplus will go to the Education Rainy Day Fund. He says the balance could be used for education or economic development. G a l l a g h e r- F i s h b a u g h says she hopes that state lawmakers won’t play politics with the education money. “There tends to be a bit of a micromanaging on the part of some in the legislative body to specify where certain funds need to go,” she maintains. “And that’s absolutely contrary to the local control issue.” She adds the budget surplus is a good sign of the state’s economic recovery and hopefully, an indicator of future windfalls for education. —Troy Wilde, Utah News Connection
Wayne Athletics Inc. Third Quarter Report The board members of WAI are excited to let everyone know what they have been able to accomplish during the last three months, from July through September. Outwardly, July may not have seemed like a very productive month, however the board spent countless hours discussing the future direction of Wayne Athletics. A new mission statement was created that broadened WAI direction to include the promoting of healthy lifestyles and increasing community unity and school spirit; this change has made it possible for WAI to qualify for more grants and has given us more opportunities to help. In July two members of the community attended WAI meetings; first was Preston Stephenson, WHS Vice President and second, Rachelle Jeffery, WHS cheer advisor. Preston requested a meeting on behalf of the Wayne High student government, he had planned and presented a plan to his fellow officers about a school unity program he called “Cool 2 Care”. Preston asked WAI if they would be willing to help with donations to the program, namely the end of year grand prize. WAI agreed to help and began the process of procuring items. Mrs. Jeffery attended a meeting at the request of WAI, the board wanted to know what they could do to help her and the cheerleaders since the cheer program is an integral part of building school unity and spirit. We also started the search for a reporter for a high school sports article in the Insider. We are pleased to announce that Bethany Lamb, daughter of Jim and Toni Lamb, accepted the invitation and we are excited to read her articles! During August, WAI held their annual fundraising dinner the opening night of the Wayne County Fair; the dinner brought in $995. Members of the WHS track team helped serve the dinner and in return $500 will be used to help the high school track team purchase a shade canopy for use at meets. A silent auction was held during the fair dinner on behalf of the Cool 2 Care program; Ellett distributing, Brian
Farm, Loa Builders, Josie Oyler, Scott Christensen, Burns Saddlery, Johnson Mill Inn, Bullhead Sand and Gravel, Karen Ellett, Royals Food Town, Tosconos, Wayne High School, Wayne Swimming Pool, Hair and Stuff - Emily Brinkerhoff, Red Ridge Hair Design - April Torgerson, Broken Spur, Barney Outdoor Outfitters, Carol Gnade, Chad Lyman and WAI all donated items. The auction brought in $1,100, and the money was used to purchase items for the weekly, monthly and quarterly prizes, which include, ipod, xbox, digital camera, minky blanket, binoculars, flat screen tv, headphones, iTunes cards and other fun items. WAI used their own funds to purchase, at a great discount, a four wheeler from Steadman’s in Tooele for the end of year grand prize. WAI also applied for and received a $500 grant from WalMart. In September, Kenra Stephenson attended the Wayne County Special Service District meeting and requested a wrestling mat for Wayne Middle School. The request was granted, a mat valued around $8700 was purchased by the WCSSD and should arrive shortly. In July WAI agreed to help Mrs. Jeffery and the student government with homecoming activities; on September 23, WAI provided equipment for a Flag Football game between classes. WAI served a hotdog dinner for $1 which helped subset the cost
of food. Tuesday WAI donated 50 pounds of purple and gold powder for a color run. Lisa Stevens took pictures of the event and will be sending in as a part of a $1000 grant opportunity for Wayne High School. WAI is currently working on the Daniel’s grant to help make improvements to the WHS track area. We are asking for money to remove portions of the dirt hill to the east of the track, put in a retaining wall, and a cement slab for bleachers, as well as bleachers, also. Part of the grant requires that we submit 2 construction bids; if anyone would like to submit a bid for us to use we would be very grateful. Please contact a member of the WAI board for more information. Plans for next quarter: Wayne Athletics is teaming up with 4-H during their S.T.E.M. activity on Friday, October 25. GaeLynn Peterson has agreed to let Wayne Athletics have a fundraising 2 mile run/ hay maze before the 4-H activity and will also let us set up a photo booth and host a costume contest. WAI plans to bring back the “Athlete of the Week” program, will continue working on grants, continue working with the school board and football committee members with funding for a potential high school football program, and continue to work with the WHS cheer program by implementing some of our ideas for spirit building and game attendance during the winter sport season.

By Cynthia Kimball Today is a new day. Today is assuming the best. In everything and of everyone. Right from the start. And if you have any “assuming the worst” thoughts, do not repeat them, do not entertain them, do not give them any floor time. Today is confidence in self. Today is giving the benefit of doubt. Today is going forward in faith. Today is believing you can and that all things are possible. Today is forgiveness. Forgive everyone of everything and then turn over to God the rest so that you can be free. Today is opportunity (even and especially in adversity). Today provides a blank new canvas and you are the painter. Thus, create great things! Today set an excellent example for others.
Today is Hope and a New You Today is looking for and finding good things in all those you come in contact with. Today say, “Thank you” and “You’re welcome” and mean it. Today ask, “How are you?” and genuinely listen for a response. Today care for at least one person other than you. Today do as many good deeds as possible (and anonymously if you can). Today have courage. Be bold. Today be grateful and appreciative. Today is free of gossip unless it is positive. You have permission to pass along positive gossip. You do not have permission to pass along negative gossip unless that is what you want to be known for. Can you imagine what your gravestone might read if you do the latter, “Jane or John Doe, expert gossiper. I destroyed many reputations and lives.” Or, if practicing the former, “Jane or John Doe,
expert gossiper. I saved many reputations and lives.” Today is quitting one bad habit like smoking, drinking, using drugs, viewing pornography, and cheating on your loved ones’ (this includes thought and actual adultery). Today means being true to yourself. Today is asking, “Is God and my family first or is my cell phone, TV program, Facebook, job, sports team, workout, etc.?” If so, do what you have to do to make God and your family first in all things. Today is hope and a new you. Today is right now. Solutions are above. Provide the answers.

tHe lAuGhiNg pOiNt!!
Occasionally at the restaurant where I work there are extra desserts, and the staff are given some to take home. Once I brought home two pieces of cheesecake for my son and daughter. My daughter had a piece that evening. The next day her older brother found her watching TV and eating more cheesecake. “Are you eating my cheesecake?” he demanded. “Oh, no,” she replied sweetly, “I ate yours yesterday.”
To treat my bronchitis, the doctor pulled out his prescription pad. “This is for Zithromax,” he said as he wrote, then muttered, “Mypenzadyne.” I was familiar with the antibiotic Zithromax but not the other drug. I asked, “What’s Mypenzadyne?” He looked confused for a second then enunciated slowly. “My pen is dying.”
A man received a phone call one day, and the caller asked if he had Lost a parrot. He said that he had indeed lost the bird, but wanted to know how the caller located him. The caller said that the bird had landed on his balcony and kept Repeating, “Hi, you have reached 555-3214. I can’t come to the Phone right now, please leave a message at the tone.”
Genesis, First Draft
Recently the first draft of the Book of Genesis was discovered. It begins: “In the beginning the world was without form, and void. And God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And God separated the light from the dark. And did two loads of laundry.”
I’ve really been working out, lately. Soon I’ll be able to touch my toes. Well, as soon as my fingernails grow another 24 inches or so..

You should know what you own, how you own it, and what you plan to give to whom. Keep your notes in a safe place. You’ll need them as you and your attorney decide which estate planning tools-wills, trusts or others--you want to use to pass on your assets. This is the perfect time to decide on a safe place to store all your estate-planning documents. Gathering necessary paperwork in one location will save your loved ones an irritating game of “find the forms” after your death. You may choose a bank safe-deposit box, an office filing cabinet or a fireproof lock box you keep in your bedroom closet. What matters is that your heirs know where they can find the appropriate estate information important documents, including your will, birth certificate, marriage certificate, stock certificates, etc. Lock box The lock box is just right if you want your documents immediately at hand and under your careful watch. This is an understandable perspective. Be aware, though, that this box, which is in your house, stands the same chance of disappearing in the event of a burglary as, say, your computer or jewelry. Your important, possibly irreplaceable, original documents would be gone. Safe-deposit box The safe-deposit box has the appeal of being safer from fire and burglary, but it is not so easily accessed as the lock box in the closet. It only takes a quick trip to the bank to deposit or remove items from the box, but there’s more to it than
that. In the event of a person’s death, the law requires a very specific way of handling the entry into a safe-deposit box by family members or anyone else who seeks access to the items inside. If the box was rented in the names of a husband and wife, the surviving spouse is generally granted unrestricted access to the box. Or if the next of kin needs to search the box for a will or burial instructions, the bank allows access upon presentation of a death certificate. Otherwise, the bank is obliged to bar access. One important reminder A living will is an expression of your desire not to receive extraordinary medical treatment if your medical condition appears hopeless. It is your decision to make one or not. However, do not keep your living will in a safe deposit box. Make several copies of the original to give family members, and keep the original in a safe but an easily accessible place. Tell others where you put the original in case it is needed. A living will is not a document that disposes of your property and should remain easily accessible. In conclusion, there is no “best” place to store your estate planning documents.
However, no matter where the documents are stored, the most important issue is to make sure that those that will need the documents know where the documents are and can get access to them in case of an emergency.

My wife and I were visiting my mother. My sisters, their husbands and many nieces and nephews had gathered at mom’s house to welcome our newborn. Suddenly, two of my nieces, both five, began to squabble over who’d get to hold the baby on their lap first. My mother, with her years of wisdom, suggested they sit side by side and both hold the baby. Not to be outdone, One niece piped up and said, “Okay! But I want the end with the head on it!”

The Wayne & Garfield County INSIDER
Peggy Lee Clark GLENDALE - Peggy Lee (Wilkins) Clark: Our cherished Peggy has graduated from this life to an exalted reunion with her parents after a courageous battle of cancer. Peggy was born to Keith Murray and Rhea (Stock) Wilkins on November 12, 1952. Peggy often voiced wonderful family memories growing up in Sevier, UT & Page, AZ; but especially the fun, harmless shenanigans with her friends while her family lived in Zion National Park. Peggy married Allen ‘Randy’ Bradbury on October 25, 1972, they were blessed with three mischievously delightful boys that she cherished. They lived in Loa, Utah where she fell in love with a community that continues to love her. In 1993 Peggy and Randy divorced. On May 8, 2001, Peggy married her first love James “Jim” Edward Clark. First living in Washington State and then returning to Southern Utah, they shared 12 years and many memories of camping, fishing, 4-wheeling and laughter. In this marriage Peggy gained four adored step-children; Will, Reason, Liz and Yates. Peggy’s love was her Grandchildren, Kehl, Makayla, Krey and Ryker, they were the constant that could bring a smile to her face in any situation and more time with them was her focused purpose of perseverance through her battle. Peggy’s infectious personality, contagious “cackling” laughter, and unending wit, created happiness wherever she went. The room was brighter with her in it. In addition to the outdoors, Peggy loved journaling, sewing and playing the piano, she was no holds barred card player. Peggy will always be remembered for her hard work ethic. No matter which job, many colleagues have said that she could work circles around them. Peggy found her passion in her most recent job of 7 years working at Best Friends in the ‘Dog Clinic’. In this time she had the best of both worlds working with the animals and, even more, the people that she will always hold very near to her heart. Peggy leaves behind a legacy through her survivors: James E. Clark, husband (Glendale, Utah); Sons Daniel Shane (Brandi) Bradbury (Loa, Utah), Brett Allen (Cherish) Bradbury (St. George, Utah), Caleb Wade (Sara) Bradbury (Hanksville, Utah); Mother in law, Venece Clark; siblings: Mary Lynne Rasmussen, Keith Chad Wilkins, twin sister Patsy Dee Burtchett, Nola Hope Wilkins, Jill K. Wilkinson and Jack R. Wilkins; sister and brothers in law: Randy, Bob and Karen; as well as many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by both of her parents and Father in law, Ed Clark. The family wishes to express our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Derrick Haslem and Cindy Sahring and the entire staff at the Southwest Cancer Center. Their constant care, availability, optimism, and laughter over the past 3 ½ years has been exceptional. Also, Jordan, David and Sara with Southern Utah Hospice in her final days. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, October 2 at 12:00noon at the LDS Ward in Glendale Utah. Friends and family are welcome to call at a viewing that morning between 11:0011:45. Graveside services in Springdale, Utah to follow. Peggy loved flowers except carnations. She thought they were a sad reminder of a funeral. Arrangements were made with Mosdell Mortuary.
Mayall Sawyer HATCH - Mayall Huntington Sawyer, 84, passed away September 29, 2013 in Antimony. She was born September 18, 1929, in Panguitch, to Oliver Barnhurst and Velma May Evans Huntington. She married David G. Sawyer February 17, 1946 in Fredonia, Arizona. The marriage was later solemnized in the St. George Temple. He preceded her in death March 18, 1988. To Mom, family was most important in her life, including the “in-laws” and the out-laws”. She was a self-taught artist and musician playing the piano, guitar, organ, drums, violin, harmonica, base and was learning the mandolin. She loved farming, fishing, hunting, picnics, piecing and quilting. Mom was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as music leader, organist, a teacher and a visiting teacher. She encouraged and taught her children and grandchildren the importance of a strong testimony of the Gospel and served as an excellent example to them.

TORREY NewZ Adus Dorsey
Since Torrey News this week is slim to none and most of the talk at the local area Coffee Shops and RV Campgrounds has shifted away from snow flurries and to what the Kardashian’s are wearing, and “oh yeah” the impending and threatened Tea Party “Government shut down”. After a rather relaxing weekend in Escalante filled with music and fun I felt compelled to add my two cents worth into the local Governmental shut down conversation to see if anybody really reads what I write or really cares. **** Be forwarned…the following independent comments and opinions are my own and may contain material not suitable for children or condoned by anyone else, nor have I received any monetary compensation for this commentary. I take full responsibility for this content because I will be unavailable for the next two weeks. Maybe it is time the Government does shut down and start the whole thing over again, certainly things couldn’t be any worse than they already are. If Washington really wanted to get some attention for their cause they should call off this years Elk hunt and see how the American public responds. If that doesn’t work I say we gather up all the Washington politicians, put them in the national forest and see just how fast they all could come up with a working plan. My guess would be it would only take one night in the woods and Ted Cruz and Mike Lee ego’s would be so bruised and beat up that when they came stumbling out in the morning neither one of them would be recognizable. Rational people do not act like that, and if local governments operated the way that Washington does we all would be in a real fix. Washington probably wasted more time and money deciding on the color of the national shut down clock than rural towns in Utah have in their coffers. The whole idea of a government shut down is just plain stupid and surprisingly enough this is most likely the hardest Washington has worked in a long time, all for naught. In reality anybody around here that has been paying attention to what the idiots in
After attending last week’s art festival, Adus drew this attractive picture of a sinking ship to go with this week’s column. (Or...maybe he got it online...?) Washington are doing are already doing what they will be doing if the government does decide to shut down. And knowing how the government works it will most likely cost us taxpayers twice as much to shut the government down as does to keep it going. My guess is there has been a run on firewood permits by government employees looking forward to a few days paid vacation. For everybody else in Wayne County it will just be another working day in paradise. What does a government shut down mean to Wayne County? Well, Capitol Reef National Park will be boarded up and park entrances all along Highway 24 will take on the closed appearance at the waterfall. Maintenance personnel and Park Rangers will most likely be paid overtime to build and guard barricades to park entrances that will refuse public entrance to America’s most treasured places. So much for Utah’s Mighty Five campaign? Will the U.S. Forest Service be patrolling the National Forest and fighting fires? Probably. Will the U.S. Mail be delayed, as usual? Will the politicians in Washington and the voting public ever come to their senses? Some of us are still praying for the day when that will ever happen. On September 3, 1814, following the Burning of Washington and the Raid on Alexandria, Francis Scott Key and John Stuart Skinner set sail from Baltimore aboard the ship HMS Minden, flying a flag of truce on a mission approved by President James Madison. Key was inspired by the American victory and the sight of the large American flag flying triumphantly above the fort. This flag, with fifteen stars and fifteen stripes,
had been made by Mary Young Pickersgill together with other workers in her home on Baltimore’s Pratt Street. The flag later came to be known as the Star Spangled Banner Flag, a treasure of the Smithsonian Institution. Aboard the ship the next day, Key wrote a poem on the back of a letter he had kept in his pocket. At twilight on September 16, he and Skinner were released in Baltimore. He completed the poem at the Indian Queen Hotel, where he was staying. O say can you see by the dawn’s early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched, were
so gallantly streaming? And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave? It is an American way of life to fight for what is right. If Francis Scott Key was anchored off shore and witnessing all the political rhetoric and indecisiveness that is taking place in America today we surely would be singing a different tune at the Olympics, local ball games and important national gatherings. Even on the eve of a possible government shut down, the overly made-up, floozy looking Kardashians dominate the national headlines. What does that say about the once globally progressive American mentality? From a fellow Texan to Ted Cruz, don’t you dare think that what you are doing by trying to force a government shut down has anything to do with the idea of throwing me a life preserver from your politically sinking ship. Personally speaking, I would rather sink out of sight believing the American system of government is and will always be bigger than your Texas ego.

For Your Health Caring for Yourself Before and During Pregnancy The decision to have a child is a life-changing one. Health authorities offer important advice to ensure your pregnancy is healthy. Some recommendations begin before you are pregnant, such as the need to take prenatal supplements.

What To Do Before You Are Pregnant Experts offer a set of instructions that are most important to follow if you plan to become pregnant: 1) Folic acid has been found to be extremely important in reducing the risk of birth defects of the brain and spine. However, you cannot wait until you know you are pregnant to take it, as that is too late. You should take 400 to 800 mcg of folic acid every day for a full 3 months before you even try to become pregnant. This is simple and inexpensive. 2) Smoking and drinking during pregnancy can have devastating effects on a growing fetus. For this reason, you must stop all use of alcohol and tobacco products (including cigarettes and all forms of smokeless tobacco) before you even become pregnant. Stopping these unhealthy addictions before pregnancy helps you undergo the 9 months of pregnancy without exposing your fetus to these toxic chemicals. Your physician can help with cessation. 3) Halt use of any homeopathic remedies, herbs, and dietary supplements, except for prenatal supplements. None are proven safe and effective for any medical use, and using them during pregnancy could be dangerous to you and your fetus. 4) Be sure to follow all medical advice in order to keep any health conditions you might have under control, including diabetes, asthma, obesity, hypertension, thyroid disease, depression, and epilepsy. Get all suggested vaccinations. 5) Medications that you ingest can be harmful to a fetus. See a physician for advice regarding any drugs you must take regularly for a medical condition. There may be safer alternatives. Include OTC products in your list, even vitamins and minerals. 6) Stay away from any toxic substance or material at work and at home. Stop use of or contact with chemicals and do not touch cat or rodent fecal material. After You Become Pregnant Read the instructions in the above paragraphs and do your best to comply with them during your pregnancy. You must now also obtain prenatal care. Prenatal care is defined as the preventive medical care you require when you are pregnant. It is vitally important to make a physician appointment as soon as you realize you are pregnant. The sooner, the better. Research has shown that babies whose mothers do not get prenatal care are three times more likely to have a low birth weight and five times more likely to die. In addition, when you choose a physician, make that doctor a regular part of your life. List all of the medications you take at your first appointment and ask your doctor’s advice on what to do about them. You will be scheduled for many repeat appointments to check your health and that of your growing fetus. Be sure to keep those appointments. Your doctor and caregivers will provide numerous instructions to help maximize the health of your child. Follow all of the advice as closely as you possibly can to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Remember, if you have questions, Consult Your Pharmacist

It’s Childhood Obesity Awareness Month SALT LAKE CITY - Children in Utah and elsewhere are the focus of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. The effort attempts to shine a light on what some health and medical experts have called an “epidemic.” According to the National Childhood Obesity Awareness website, more than 23 million children and teens in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Dr. Bill Cosgrove, president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Utah chapter, said families in low-income neighborhoods often lack access to healthier foods. Cosgrove noted that making small changes, like going for a walk or cutting out soda, can make a big difference in changing overall lifestyle. According to the most recent Utah Department of Health figures, one in five students under age 12 is overweight or obese. Families eating more fast food and exercising less are among the major causes of obesity, both in children and adults, Cosgrove said, adding that moms and dads should lead by example, by exercising with their kids and also by eating healthier food. “What’s healthiest for the family is to have the parents not send the kids out to exercise, but take the kids out to exercise,” he said. “Obviously, the exercise is good for the parents, too.” Cosgrove warned that being overweight can also hurt a child’s chance of having fun, at school and with friends. “Kids who are overweight have a bigger chance of being bullied,” he said. “They have a bigger chance of being skipped for the birthday party, and they have a bigger chance of having self-esteem issues. It’s a problem on many fronts.” Cosgrove said obese children are at greater risk of suffering from Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke. National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month encourages parents and the community at large to promote and embrace the benefits of an active lifestyle and a healthy diet. —Troy Wilde, Utah News Connection

Practical Money Matters
Lower Income? Don’t Pass Up the Saver’s Credit by Jason Alderman
In 2002, Congress passed legislation to create an income tax credit designed to encourage lower- and middle-income people to save money for retirement. The saver’s credit, worth up to $1,000 a year for individuals ($2,000 for couples filing jointly), rewards people for contributing to an IRA or 401(k) plan. Regrettably, the people most likely to benefit from the saver’s credit are also those who can usually least afford to set aside money for retirement. It doesn’t help that only onequarter of people earning less than $50,000 even know the credit exists. But if you can squeeze a few dollars out of your budget, the saver’s credit is worth pursuing. Tax credits reduce the amount of income tax paid, dollar for dollar; so many lowincome people can recoup the amount they contribute to retirement accounts by up to 50 percent through reduced taxes. And those whose employers match a portion of their 401(k) contributions reap even bigger rewards. Another good selling point: Parents or grandparents who want to jumpstart their low-income kids’ retirement savings can fund their IRA or 401(k) contribution, thereby making them eligible for the saver’s credit even if they can’t afford to contribute on their own.
Here’s the nitty-gritty on the saver’s credit: The saver’s credit is a “nonrefundable”tax credit, which means it reduces income taxes owed, dollar for dollar – although it won’t generate a tax refund if the credit is more than the taxes you owe. The saver’s credit helps offset part of the amount you voluntarily contribute to an IRA or 401(k) plan. Your credit amount is based on your tax filing status, adjusted gross income and the amount you contribute to qualifying retirement programs. It can be claimed by: Married couples filing jointly with adjusted gross income (AGI) of no more than $59,000. • Heads of households with AGI up to $44,250. • Singles (or married filing separately) with AGI up to $29,500. The credit rate is 10 percent, 20 percent or 50 percent of the first $2,000 you contribute ($4,000 for married couples filing jointly), depending on your AGI; the lower your AGI the higher the percentage. For example: • Single filers with an AGI up to $17,500 receive a 50 percent credit on the first $2,000 they contribute (i.e., up to a $1,000 credit); 20 percent on AGI up to $19,250 ($200 credit); and 10 percent on AGI up to $29,500 ($100 credit). Anything over
$29,500, you don’t qualify. • For joint filers the credit amount limits are: 50 percent on up to $35,500 AGI (50% X $4,000 = $2,000); 20 percent on up to $38,500 ($800); and 10 percent on up to $59,000 ($400). Other eligibility rules: • You must be at least age 18. • You can’t be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return. • You can’t have been a fulltime student during any part of five calendar months in 2013. • You must contribute to a 401(k) by December 31, 2013, or to an IRA by April 15, 2014. Important Note: You cannot claim the credit using IRS Form 1040 EZ, the form many lower-income people file. To claim it, you must submit IRS Form 8880 with Form 1040, 1040A or 1040NR. It’s a little extra bookkeeping, but could be worth the effort. Saving money for the future is never easy, especially when you’re struggling to pay daily bills. But if you can somehow manage to take advantage of the saver’s credit now, you’ll thank yourself at retirement. Jason Alderman directs Visa’s financial education programs.

WASHINGTON, DC - The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is ramping up its education and outreach efforts for America’s small businesses on the Affordable Care Act. The campaign will help small employers learn more about how to take advantage of the Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP), part of the Health Insurance Marketplace that opens October 1. SHOP is designed for small employers with 50 or fewer full-time employees. On their own or with the help of an agent, broker, or other assister, small employers will be able to compare price, coverage, and quality of plans in a way that is easy to understand. “In recent years, the number one concern for many small businesses has been the increasing cost of health insurance premiums,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “Many who would like to offer insurance to their employees have faced few choices, high administrative costs, and skyrocketing premiums when an employee gets sick.” “Since the passage of the health care law, Small Business Majority has been committed to educating small business owners about the Affordable Care Act,” said Founder & CEO of Small Business Majority John Arensmeyer. “With open enrollment and full implementation right around the corner, we’ve upped our efforts to get entrepreneurs the information they need to best take advantage of the law’s small business provisions. Small business owners have been waiting for decades for something to rein in premium costs. This is our chance to help get them some relief.” Employers buying health insurance through the SHOP Marketplace may also qualify for a Small Business Health Care Tax Credit to help defray their premium costs. Hundreds of thousands of small businesses with fewer than 25 full-timeequivalent employees have already received a tax credit of up to 35 percent of their contribution to employees’ health insurance premiums. Beginning in 2014, this tax credit will be worth as much as 50 percent of
the employer’s contribution to premiums and will be available only to those purchasing coverage through the SHOP. The SHOP offers small employers quality brand name health insurance plans and lets them make side-by-side comparisons when choosing a coverage option that is right for their business. In addition, starting in 2014, small employers have additional protections in the insurance market, including that no one can be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition. Unlike individuals purchasing through the Marketplace, small employers can enroll in insurance plans through the SHOP on a monthly basis throughout the year. As such, some states are phasing in SHOP application and enrollment periods. The SHOP Marketplace for Federally-facilitated Marketplace states opens Oct. 1, 2013, when small employers can start the application process and get an overview of available plans and premiums in their area. All functions for SHOP will be available in November and if employers and employees enroll by Dec. 15, 2013, coverage will begin Jan. 1, 2014. Detailed information on the SHOP application and enrollment process are available at HealthCare.gov. As part of the expanded education and outreach campaign, HHS will work with SBA to make additional resources available for small employers. Beginning Oct. 1, 2013 the dedicated SHOP small employer call center at 1-800-706-7893 will offer extended hours Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST. Employers may call the SHOP Small Employer call center for assistance when completing an application beginning October 1. SBA and HHS will also offer a new schedule of educational webinars tailored to educate small business owners across the country about what the SHOP offers, and how it works. HHS has trained more than 40,000 agents and brokers, who will continue their traditional role of helping small businesses enroll in coverage, both inside and outside the SHOP Marketplace.
HHS will also expand upon the collection of promotional and educational resources available on Marketplace. cms.gov. Resources are also available at Business.usa.gov/ healthcare. —US Dept. of Health and Human Services
