Clive Romney and Friends Entertain an Enthusiastic Crowd


LOA weather

TROPIC - The Clive Romney’s Pioneer Heritage Program was held at the Tropic Heritage Center Thursday 18 October 2012, engaging an audience hailing from various parts of our state and from all over Garfield County. Performing with Clive Romney was bassist Bob Applin from Fillmore and young fiddler Miriam Wagstaff of Tropic. The evening was kicked off by violin students of Megan Cottam who performed lively bluegrass numbers. The audience was moved by the poignant “Waltz Across the Fifty,” sung by Quinn and Doneen Griffen, composed and written by Quinn. Young singer Payton Kemp held us spellbound with his clear, strong voice as he sang contrasting songs written by Clive--one touching and humorous and the other an emotional story of profound sacrifice. Two granddaughters of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Roundy, Jayden and Alayna Spencer, sang a fun rendition of the Handcart Song. Clive kept everyone’s attention throughout the evening as he interspersed entertaining stories among riveting musical numbers that he wrote and composed. Clive called for volunteers from the audience to accompany a fun piece called “Diggin’ in the Dirt” using hoes and shovels. At that point a small garter snake contributed to the fun when he appeared among the audience midway through the performance. —Rebecca Wagstaff

Gary Krugger, Escalante Canyons Marathon overall winner, traversing the hogsback on Hwy 12. ESCALANTE - Last week, four young men and women did what no one has done before: They were the overall men’s and women’s winners of the first-ever Escalante Canyons Marathon and Head of the Rocks 10-Miler. In the immediate aftermath of the races, we didn’t have the opportunity to give these winners their due honor. This week we’d like to celebrate our overall marathon winners, and next week we’ll applaud our 10-miler winners. ESCALANTE CANYONS MARATHON MEN’S AND OVERALL WINNER: Gary Krugger, Flagstaff, AZ Gary Krugger, 27 years old, lives and runs in Flagstaff, Arizona. And we mean he LIVES to RUN. The ECM was his 32nd marathon this year and his 171st since he began entering marathon races in 2006. At the start line, Gary stood apart. At the finish line, we found that the Escalante Canyons Marathon was another singular accomplishment for someone who is clearly dedicated to breaking personal records: Gary has the distinction of having run a marathon in all 50 states, and he’s had several first-place wins since 2009. Gary said the Escalante Canyons Marathon was one of the more difficult courses

he’s run, rating it an “8 or 9” on a scale of 1-10. Running it in a brand-new pair of shoes (with the inevitable blisters) made it even more challenging, but he still managed to do it at the astonishing pace of 6 minutes 45 seconds per mile. And being the marathon frontrunner meant that he didn’t see another runner until the marathon converged with the 10mile course; he said this was a highlight of the race for him. Marathons bring unique individuals to the starting line. Gary’s running history shows that he embraces a variety of challenges: small races, major races like the Boston Marathon, and long-distance races reputed to be among the most punishing, including the Pikes Peak and Leadville marathons. We’re proud that he chose to run ECM, and that he recognized the course as “difficult,” given his track record. ESCALANTE CANYONS MARATHON WOMEN’S OVERALL WINNER: Nola Otterstrom, Salt Lake City, UT It’s a pleasure to celebrate Nola Otterstrom, 33 years old, who returned to her “home turf” to become the first women’s winner of the Escalante Canyons Marathon. She ran with the support of her family, including her parents, Vard and Mary Jane Coombs of Boulder. This was Nola’s

second marathon; in 2010 she placed first in her division in the Little Grand Canyon Marathon. Nola and her husband, Paul, have run sections of Route 12 – including the long, steep uphill run from Calf’s Creek toward Boulder– as part of their training programs. And Nola’s driven between Boulder and Escalante many times, so if anyone could gauge the difficulty of the course, it’s her. Although the marathon was even more difficult than even she predicted, Nola ran the whole course (no walking!), including the long uphill stretches between the Escalante River and Head of the Rocks, and did so at an average pace of 9 minutes 18 seconds per mile. We had no idea before the first running if anyone could pull this off, but Nola triumphed. Running marathons is not a consuming passion for Nola; her children and family come first, and she fits in training when she can. Whether or not she pursues more marathon wins, she will always have this to remember: Returning to her roots, she proved that the Escalante Canyons Marathon is runnable, and winnable. And we’re proud to have a “hometown girl” doing the honor. Run, Nola, Run!

Letters Dear Editor, Wayne and Garfield Counties face unique challenges to our area. Because we have been one of the few areas of our nation that have been good stewards and taken care of our land we have many acres that are available for use and not destroyed. We can be proud of the past and those of us and our ancestors who have used the land wisely. Utah is now facing and aggressive administration that is trying to create more wilderness type lands. While we all appreciate the natural beauty and wonder of our great State, access to Utah’s lands have been greatly diminished by the restrictions that have come from the federal regulations. These expansive federal policies that cut off access are killing jobs. Our economy is hurting and our children are lacking needed funds that

could come to their classrooms as a result, as every dollar the state gains in income tax goes directly to fund schools. Are we going to cheat our children. If we were to use our Trust Lands we could not only have more jobs, but better funding for our school children. We must elect Republican leaders who want to use these Trust Lands. President Obama has already canceled our state’s oil and gas leases on federal land. We nee to as a state stand up to President Obama if he is re-elected. John Swallow, Governor Herbert, and Mike Noel have proven records of fighting for control of our lands and this is one of the many reasons they will receive my vote this November. Sincerely Elaine Baldwin Pangutich, Utah

We Need A Chorus of Solutions, Not Just One Drumbeat This election deserves more than just ‘sound bites’. The recent candidate forum in Kanab allowed too little time for detailed answers. My opponent, Mike Noel, seemed to have only ONE solution to every problem—getting our public lands turned over to us. Presumably, then we’d have all the money to maintain the lands and to pay for everything that needs fixing in Utah. Sounds good...but the devil is in the details! Even if we ended up getting our wish to control the lands, nearly all the profit made from their sale or lease would go to federal gov’t. And all legal experts agree that our lawsuit will take at least 25 years to be decided at the supreme court level, only to be declared unconstitutional anyway. Meanwhile, think of what our state could do with those millions of our tax dollars currently wasted every year on this costly litigation! When we stop “betting the store” on this longshot, we can invest in solutions that work! Within the tight time during the candidates forum, I tried to detail a vision of negotiating with our Federal agencies for creative land ex-

changes that would benefit our counties with royalties from mineral extraction that is already in progress. Some county commissions in our district (Wayne & Piute) are already planning to propose policy changes at the federal level to allow for these. These changes would include a cooperative agreement to allow our lumber industry to gear up for removal of fallen trees, beetle-infested & scorched timber, and for the clearing of fire-break areas in lieu of the current ‘prescribed burns’ that often get out of control and create unhealthy air. These are the kinds of win-win solutions that need to be brought to the table right now. We can’t afford to wait 25-30 years! We need good year-round jobs right now. We can strengthen our schools, get training programs into our communities, and provide the incentives that attract good companies to our counties. Our schools, our healthcare programs, our veterans, and our families deserve this! Ty Markham Candidate for Utah House District 73

“Discovery Road” Episode Discovers a Temple, a Rat, and — ‘Hey, What Are Those Things?’ MANTI - The second episode of a television series dedicated to the heritage and culture along U.S. Highway 89 will take a look at some of the better known - and some less well-known -treasures of central Utah. With stops in Manti and Ephraim in Sanpete County, “Discovery Road” (airing on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m. on KJZZ TV Channel 14), will take a look at the cultural and historical importance of an LDS temple and, just a short distance away, a certain rodent. It is the second episode in the series, which follows a ‘55 Pontiac as it travels through the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area (MPNHA), which includes U.S. 89, All-American Road State Route 12, and Scenic Byway State Route 24. The program invokes the idea of the Sunday-afternoon drive of times past. Even after only one episode, people who watch the show are discovering the things that make the MPNHA worth driving to themselves. “Viewers are really telling us the road trip is back,” says MPNHA Executive Director Monte Bona. “When they see how fun these excursions are and how families can interact and enjoy the trip, it makes sense to them. Toss in Facebook and GPS, and you’ve got a fun outing for a lot people.” The second episode takes viewers back in time as hosts James Nelson and Gena Persinger explore the faith and determination of he pioneers who settled the area, symbolized now in the most prominent landmark of the area —the majestic Manti LDS temple. “We’ll explore how the Manti temple was built and what challenges had to be overcome before the doors were opened in 1888,” says Nelson. “Stories about hardship and accomplishment are blended with heartwarming personal histories born on the Manti Temple Hill.” Descendants of those who built the temple have great respect and veneration for the work of ancestors such as George Paxton, hose greatgreat-granddaughter Celia Benson is interviewed during the show. Just two blocks down the road from the temple, Discovery Road’s hosts find one of two unlikely critters they encounter in the episode — a rat at the former home of hot-rod car designer and cartoonist Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. Roth is known worldwide

The area includes the counties of Sanpete, Sevier, Piute, Wayne, Garfield and Kane.

The application for Escalante to be designated a National Historic District proceeds! We had about 20 people attending the presentation to the city, in addition to the City Council members on October 16. Cory Jensen, Architectural Historian/National Register and Architectural Survey Coordinator at the Utah State Historic Preservation Office discussed the nomination process and what historic designation does (and does not) do. Nice support from the community! My sincere thanks to all who attended. The Architectural Survey shows that 43 % of the buildings in town inside the perimeter drawn by the historical office look the way they did 50 years ago. Everyone I spoke with said the presentation was very interesting and we are looking forward to the good news on November 15th in Salt Lake City and in February from the Keeper of the National Register. We are working on to preserve our past while looking to the future. —Harriet Priska

Local Riding Club Volunteers Spearhead Ranger Station Cabin Cleanup BOULDER MTN. - On Saturday morning, October 20, a group of Back Country Horsemen of Utah gathered at the Cowpuncher Cabin site to clean up the ashes and debris left after last year’s fire totally destroyed the historic cabin and outbuildings. In coordination with Cindy Calbaum of the US Forest Service, a dozen members of BCHU, armed with shovels, rakes, wheelbarrels, trash cans and a huge number of extra heavy-duty

trash bags worked for several hours cleaning the area. Cowpuncher Guard Station was built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in 1938. The house served as a summer residence for the Forest Ranger and his family and as a contact station for infrequent visitors. Oral history indicates that the kitchen table came from the Box Guard Station and that a Ranger named Hyrum Lee carved his name on the side of the table in Oc-

tober 1913. The carving was still there when it burned and although a few changes had been made over the years, the guard station with its house, garage, and outhouse was still historically intact. In more recent years, the cabin housed seasonal employees for the Forest Service and since 2006 the cabin had been managed as a recreation cabin rental under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA). FLREA allows Federal land agencies such as the Forest Service to collect fees for the use of recreation facilities like this cabin, and use the fees to make improvements to the facilities. With the area cleaned up, the Forest Service now plans to build a cabin on the same site that will replicate the original. The Canyon Country Chapter of BCHU, although organized around our love of our horses and the great country we have to ride in, is dedicated to being an organization serving our community and helping to keep the trails and country open and safe for recreational activities by volunteering for projects such as this latest clean-up at Cowpuncher. Anyone interested in this type of volunteer work, whether you have a horse or not, is encouraged to join BCHU. We have regular meetings and potlucks and other enjoyable activities as well as doing our part to maintain Escalante’s traditional outdoor lifestyle . Please contact any member for information. —Gwendolyn Zeta

Not As I Do: Dangerous Driving by Parents = Dangerous Driving by Teens With the holidays rapidly approaching, many teenagers will be behind the wheel visiting family and friends … and often copying the driving behavior of their parents. But, is that a good thing? Not necessarily. New research from SADD and Liberty Mutual Insurance reveals an alarming example of do what I say, not what I do when it comes to distracted and dangerous driving. For example, 66 percent of teens believe their parents follow different rules behind the wheel than they set for their children, with approximately 90 percent of teens reporting that their parents speed and talk on a cell phone while driving. Parent Driving Behavior Specifically, the survey found teens observe their parents exhibiting the following driving behavior at least occasionally: 91 percent talk on a cell phone; 88 percent speed; 59 percent text message; 20 percent drive after drinking alcohol; and 7 percent drive after using marijuana. In addition, teens report that nearly half of parents (47 percent) sometimes drive without a seatbelt. What’s the harm? Prior driving research from SADD and Liberty Mutual points out that parents are the number one influence on teen driving behavior. Teen Driving Behavior Thus, it may be no surprise that teens repeat these driving behaviors in almost equal numbers to their parents: 90 percent talk on a cell phone; 94 percent speed; and 78 percent send text messages. Also, 15 percent of teens report driving after using alcohol. Modeling Driving Behaviors In short, the link between the observed and self-reported driving behaviors indicates that parents are modeling destructive driving and that their teens are following suit. “These findings highlight the need for parents to realize how their teens perceive their actions,” says Dave Melton, a driving safety expert with

Liberty Mutual Insurance and its managing director of global safety. “Kids are always observing the decisions parents make behind the wheel and may see unsafe driving as acceptable.” Teens Can Influence Parents Similar to past data showing the power of teens to correct poor driving behavior by peers, the same holds true for a car being driven by their parents: nearly three-quarters (70 percent) of the teens surveyed reported that their parents listen to them and change their poor driving behavior when they point out dangerous driving practices. Unfortunately, not many do. So, job one is to empower young people to make their discomfort with unsafe driving known to drivers, whoever they are! What else might help keep kids and adults safe and alive? Ongoing family dialogue about rules for the road that apply equally for everyone. Indeed, more than a decade of research by SADD and Liberty Mutual point to the potency of open, honest conversations between parents and teens … conversa-

tions often made easier and more effective by the signing of behavior contracts that make clear the expectations for both sides. The Parent/Teen Driving Contract is one such tool and is available for free at: w w w. L i b e r t y M u t u a l . com/TeenDriving This way, “Do as I say” becomes synonymous with “Do as I do.”

Special thanks to the counselors at Panguitch/Escalante High, Bryce Valley High and Wayne High Schools for the following article. It is their purpose to help the students and parents in Garfield and Wayne County.

Scholarships This time of year, seniors and their parents start to dream of scholarships. Scholarships and other financial aid can make it easier to think about attending a post-secondary institution. Scholarships are available at colleges, notifications are sent to counselors, and many more are out there hidden. Here are some tips that may help: 1. Scholarships are earned not given. Most scholarships are a culmination of grades, test scores, citizenship/service, leadership, and involvement. There are very few scholarships that are given based on random drawings. So, if you are waiting until your senior year to start doing these things you are too late. Get started doing these things before your senior year. 2. Apply. In order to get a scholarship you must fill out the application AND submit it. Scholarships don’t go looking for you. You must find them and follow the instructions. 3. Colleges are a great place to look for scholarships. Some colleges have an application and scholarship application all in one; others use a separate application. Check with the college or university you are interested in to see what they use. 4. Apply for more than one college. Often seniors are not 100% decided on which institution to attend. Apply in October and November to three or four colleges that interest you the most and fit your career interests. You can be accepted to several colleges. After applying, wait to see which college is going to offer you the best financial package then make up your mind about which college to attend in the spring. 5. In addition to merit-based scholarships, (those that are based on high school grades and test scores), there are many other scholarships available at colleges. Other types of scholarships are departmental, talent, leadership, and private donor scholarships. These scholarships will often require a separate application and are often hidden. They are also typically renewable each year and often don’t require the same GPA requirement to maintain the scholarship over time. Contact the colleges recruiting or financial aid office to find out where to look for them. 6. Counselors only get a handful of scholarship notifications across their desk, so look online. There are many free places to look for scholarships.,, and are some great online scholarship search engines. They take a few minutes to fill out the profile but once you do, you will start to receive e-mails about scholarships that match the information entered. One helpful idea is to create a separate email account to handle these. You will receive some spam from these sites but they are worth it. In addition to those sites, parents check with your employer, union, or other affiliations you belong to; they often have scholarships available for students. 7. No matter what the scholarship, find out the due date and criteria behind it. Make sure you strictly follow them. If letters of recommendation are required, jump on it early. Don’t wait until the day before to ask someone for a letter of recommendation. 8. Appearance. Many scholarships are completed by submitting a form online. There are also scholarships that you can download the application and fill it out on your computer or by hand. If you can’t type your application make sure to use your best handwriting in pen. It is a good idea to copy it and make a rough draft; then have someone proofread it before sending it. 9. Many scholarships are based on an essay. Most students click delete as soon as they see that word. Scholarships based on essays are not applied for as heavily and so your chances are actually better with an essay scholarship. Most essays are 500 words or less which is not much writing. 10. Start searching early--before your senior year. There are a lot of scholarships out there for students who are in 5th through 11th grade. The above listed search engines (point #6) have many in their databases. 11. Keep track. As listed in point #1, most scholarships are a culmination of activity. Make sure that you keep track of the service projects, leadership positions, activities, and other involvement so that you can remember when it is time to apply. Scholarship opportunities favor those who are able to be exact on their applications. Also, keep certificates and write down dates of activities you have participated in throughout high school. 12. Scams. There are many scams out there disguised as something great--be careful. Keep your identity safe; don’t give out information that could put it in danger. Never pay to enter a scholarship; if it asks for a credit card, don’t do it. If you have questions regarding the validity of a scholarship, you can ask the financial aid office at the college you are interested in if they have ever heard or dealt with them. They are a great resource. You can also go to http://www2. for additional information. 13. For students in Garfield County go to the district web page ( and put your mouse over the “Parent & Student” tab at the top. Follow it down to the “Counseling” button and click on scholarships to the right. This is where the scholarships are posted. Wayne students go to and then “Counseling Office” to find scholarships.


Hope everyone enjoyed their days off! Not much going on this week. Only the end of the quarter on the 26th. Congrats to Cross Country! 3rd at state! Good job girls’ volleyball. You guys are amazing.

Wow! The Lady Cats Repeat as State Cross Country Champs For the second year in a row the Lady Cats easily dominated the State Cross Country meet at Sugar House Park last Wednesday. Led by freshmen Whittni Orton—who had a big lead over the second place finisher from St. Joe—finished strong with a personal best of 19 min.18 sec. Catania Holman finished a strong 3rd and McKayla Heaton finished 6th. They were followed by Aubrey Taylor 11th, Brenna Mooney 14th and Amber Wilson in 15th. All six girls were in the top 15 runners, in the scoring column. There were runners who also ran but didn’t belong to a team that did really well. It was really a one sided victory, 1st place, Panguitch 35, 2nd place Wayne 59 and St. Joe. at 66. St. Joe was the team to beat for years, now it looks like it’s Panguitch’s turn to dominate. The Cats only Junior is Aubrey Taylor and the rest of the team made of freshmen and sophomores should be a power house for some time. The Bobcats also had a great meet at Sugar House, taking second to Monticello. It really looked good for the Cats with Kyler Norris taking 3rd and his brother Keldon Norris in 6th. With the first Monticello runner coming in 8th, however they had the 10th thru 15th runners and easily won the team title, with a score of 45 points. Connor Anderson, Cade Cole and Garrett Finch were 3rd, 4th and 5th for the Cats. Since the Cats tied with Bryce Valley it was Ian Anderson 6th finish that broke the tie. Both teams put in a lot of work preparing for this meet and it really paid off. I can’t say enough for the Coaches Danny Yardley and Jen Houston,. They get out and run with the kids and the kids think the world of them. You can’t teach ability but you can get the most out of that ability and that’s where coaching comes in. Jen did her swan dive into the creek again this year; if the girls keep winning maybe she should get a wet suit. At Region 20 it was a long day for the Cats. They played the first game at 8 in the morning and were in the final game against Piute that started at 9 in the evening. The games against Piute were outstanding. The first 3 games went to a 23 to 25 scores and the T Birds won the first two and the Cats came back to take the third. The Cats finally fell in the fourth game 25 to 18, to finish 2nd. This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the volleyball team, with only one senior on the team and most of the team made up of freshmen and sophomores. Coach Sharee Frandsen has done an outstanding job with these young players and has molded them into a very good team. State starts Oct. 26 and 27th and they will be held at UVU. Come on out and cheer the Cats as they work their way through the competition. Again Region 20 has some real good teams with Piute, Panguitch and Escalante all looking to do well there. Frank Houston tells me with the Baseball and Cross Country Championships it brings PHS total championships to 58. I am glad to see the State Championship banners back up in the gym, the old banners were too big and there wasn’t enough room for them. State Volleyball is the last of the fall sports and come November it starts all over again with basketball and wrestling.

I am running for this position to give back to this great community that my family and I have been blessed to live in for the past twelve years and to ensure the best possible opportunities for our children. I have a strong family history and faith in public education. I have 7 children (2 PHS graduates and 5 others spread throughout all 3 Panguitch schools) *I will be a voice for PANGUITCH *I will focus on the education of OUR children *I will work to put OUR TAX $ towards the best education possible to prepare our children for life *I will be open minded to your suggestions or concerns

Wayne County Page The Wayne Theatre October Board Report

Wayne School District Board Meeting was held Wednesday, October 10, 2012. Usual business was conducted at the beginning of the meeting. Coach Scott Ellett reported on the successful baseball season. He appreciated the board and school support, and felt the team and individual players had a successful year. He expressed concern with funding issues, facilities, and what seems to be a more apathetic attitude by all involved. The board expressed appreciation for his and the other coaches’ efforts this year. Mrs. Jessica Grundy was recognized for her outstanding achievement in being chosen as a 2012 State and National Agriculture Educator of the year. The board presented her a certificate, and expressed

congratulations and appreciation for her outstanding service to the students at WHS. There were various citizen comments through the presentations and information portion of the meeting. These included suggestions on fundraisers, school lunch, sports/ activities support and sports gate receipts. The Board and citizens suggested presenting ideas to the High School administration, coaches and faculty. Superintendent Torgerson presented the following items of information: Mr. Travis Cook from the State Office of Education, Youth In Custody division, is encouraging the Board to consider helping with the High Top Ranch School Youth In Custody program at Koosheram, Utah. He explained that these

are Utah Students who must be educated in Utah Schools. He explained the program and answered questions from the board about the program. He is requesting the Board’s help in managing the educational administration of the program. The Board will investigate the program more before making a decision. School Lunch income and issues were discussed. Business items included: 1. Accept coal bid (One bid only) 2. Hire Serena Leavitt as half-day paraprofessional at Loa Elementary 3. Discussion on Policy DED, financial support for teacher education/endorsements 4. School visits by the School Board. An executive session was held to discuss personnel.

Loa Elementary Snippets

by Lisa Stevens Last Thursday Loa Elementary school as well as Wayne Middle school were visited by author Brent Boswell. Mr. Boswell spent time with each grade promoting reading and writing and taking time to sign books for the students. I asked star student Laine Jensen, a second grader in Ms. Davis’ class, to write a short review of Mr. Boswell’s visit. All about Brent Boswell “I had lots of fun. I really liked his books. My favorite book was Big Mean Pig and I can’t wait to start reading it. He was cool because the pictures he showed to us made me laugh. It was fun to play the game where you raise your hand if you thought the picture he had was real or if you thought it was not real. He was really funny and very nice. It was really interesting to hear and see how he wrote his books. I hope that he will come back again to talk to us and show us more things about his books. Thank-you Mr. Brent Boswell!” Thank you Laine for that great review, you can learn more about Brent Boswell and his books by visiting his facebook page or visiting his website It is time to introduce the star students for the month of October; in the back row, left to right, are: DATES TO REMEMBER…!

WAYNE SPORTS by Lauren Jackson

Wednesday the 17th of October was the final state race of the cross-country season for the Wayne Badgers. The girls had a very successful season, and all of their competitions had lead up to this race at the lovely Sugarhouse Park in Salt Lake City. This year there was a total of 66 competitors running against them. One of the team members, Brittany Hagel, had torn her Achilles tendon right at the sound of the gun and had to be taken to the hospital. The girls missed their teammate and hope for a speedy recovery. The badgers ran to the best of their ability and took home a second place state trophy! Nice job state champions! Two of their runners are also All-State winners, having placed in the top ten. Congratulations to Lauren Jackson who finished 4th and Brooke Barney who finished 10th. Also, well done to the three girls who received Academic All-State: SteviRee Barney, Lauren Jackson, and Jocee Morrell. The cross-country team couldn’t have done it without their amazing coaches. Being my last year, I have had the opportunity to spend all four of my high school career being trained by a woman whom I admire and love, Tina Anderson. She has pushed me and my fellow team members through four successful cross-country seasons, bringing home three region championships and three 2nd place state trophy’s. She has sacrificed so much of her time to the development of this great team, and has given us the encouragement to make us the best runners that we can be. I speak for my fellow team members when I say I can’t thank her enough. We also had the amazing opportunity to be trained this year by Western Conference Athlete of the Year and running legend, Sarah Taylor. Honestly, how many high school runners can say that their coaches run WITH them, let alone FASTER than them? It has been a pleasure having Sarah’s sweet personality and cheering attitude motivate us across the finish line. We owe her so much, and are so grateful for the time she put in to make us great athletes. Thank you also Greg Southwick for the inspiring words and support you have given the team. We hope you enjoyed your last year coaching, and deeply appreciate all that you’ve given towards the team. Well done again to the 2012 second place champions! This Thursday the 25th the volleyball girls will be playing their determining match against Oakley at the UVU center in Orem at noon. This match concludes whether or not the girls continue on to state after their hard-fought matches in region. GOOD LUCK GIRLS!

The BoxTop program has 2 due dates each year, in which school turns in their accumulated BoxTops, and receives a check from General Mills. The first deadline is the end of October, so even if you haven’t used the whole box of cereal yet, cut out that BoxTop and take it to the school! Also this year Betty Crocker is getting in on the fun and will be awarding the school that increases their clipped BoxTops by the biggest percent 250,000 BoxTops, that adds up to $25,000.

By Cynthia Kimball Last night I flew in from Manhattan. It was about a five hour flight. Throughout the flight, I was able to see the beautiful land and water below from oceans, lakes and rivers, to orange tree tops, to what looked like million dollar homes and humble ones’ along with farms and businesses. I saw snow on top of Colorado mountains, Moab, Utah, rock formations and a beautiful sunset in Las Vegas. God made all this possible. How grateful I am for the blessings of His beautiful creations. I am also grateful for people. For instance, on my flight to Manhattan, I sat next to a wonderful Filipino woman who told me all about her family. And the young woman next to her, a lovely respiratory therapist from California, was heading into the city with her girlfriends for the weekend. She, upon knowing I use a sleep apnea machine, said she would keep me abreast of any new masks and machines that she becomes aware of. And the Filipino woman may call me during the holidays to talk with a Filipino friend of mine. On my return flight, I met a wonderful couple who’d been together for over 10 years and were still deeply in love with one another. Upon saying they didn’t have many friends in Las Vegas, only living there for a few years, suggested we keep in touch. Like God’s beautiful earthly creations, His people are also beautiful. And each one has a story.

What’s Really Important? People

Find the good in people. Yes, their strengths. Love them. Care for them. Reach out to them. Smile at them. Forgive them. Pray for them. Be kind to them. Connect with them. Believe in them. Support them. Go out of your way for them. Seek forgiveness. If you want to sit down and watch TV all night long or be on the computer or watch video games, first think who might need a phone call or visit. Remember that you’re not a human being having a spiritual experience, but a spiritual being having a human one; therefore, the TV, the computer or video game can wait. Serve first and you will be blessed. After all, wouldn’t you want someone to do that

for you? Be there for people. As you are, you will find your problems become minuscule. You will find more love in your heart. You will be blessed for being there for others. That’s what’s really important. And that’s what life’s about. People.

40th Birthday

Dead Artists

An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings on display at that time. “I have good news and bad news,” the owner replied. “The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings.” “That’s wonderful,” the artist exclaimed. “What’s the bad news?” “The guy was your doctor.”

On her 40th birthday a wife waltzed out of the bedroom dressed in an old outfit that she dug out of the back of the closet. “I wore this on my 30th birthday! I guess that means my wardrobe is ten years old,” she said to her husband, hoping he’d take the hint and buy her some new clothes as a present. “Or,” he offered instead, “it means when you were 30 you had the body of a 40-yearold.” (He is expected to be discharged from the hospital next week but he will always walk with a limp).

Who’s That?

While working at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, I was responsible for emptying the trash cans in front of the castle. One afternoon as I was changing out the trash bag in one of the refuse bins, I saw a small girl point at me and overheard her ask her mother, “Who’s that lady?” “Why, honey,” her mother replied, “that must be Cinderella, before she met her fairy godmother!”

Deflated Ego

I’m a counselor who helps coordinate support groups for visually- impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it very difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, “For those of you who can’t see me, I’ve been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford.” Immediately, one woman called out, “We’re not THAT blind!”

I was not thrilled with the idea of letting my clueless 13-year-old son babysit his younger brothers, even though he begged me to. “What about a fire?” I asked, referring to my No. 1 concern. “Mom,” he said, rolling his eyes, “I’m a Boy Scout. I know how to start a fire.”


A young man was applying for a job in a big company. “I’m sorry,” said the personnel manager, “but the firm is overstaffed; we have more employees now than we really need.” “That’s all right,” replied the young man, undiscouraged, “the little bit of work I do won’t be noticed anyway.”

Defense Contractor

My job is in the Aerospace Industry, and it’s always been a challenge to explain what kind of work I do. At one gathering, I tried several unsuccessful attempted explanations before deciding to be as generic as possible. When the subject came up while I was talking with a group of guys, I replied simply, “Defense Contractor.” The men nodded, and as the conversation went on, I silently declared victory to myself. Then, one of them turned to me and asked, “So, what do you put up mainly? Chainlink?”

Adus Dorsey Boulder Mountain autumn yellows have given way to hunter’s orange and like in the movie “The Sound of Music” the hills are alive with the sound of musical gunfire. Deer hunters from all over Utah and neighboring states are once again descending on Southern Utah with enough ammunition and foodstuffs to outfit a small army. It is the annual deer hunt and the time of year when the local non-hunter outdoorsmen are fleeing to the desert to safely get away from gunshots and enjoy what is left of the fall colors. Not so amazing is what the annual “deer hunt” actually provides which is a traditional fall family activity. In an interesting sort of way families come together and have the opportunity get away from the distraction of the boob tube and share quality time together, cooking elaborate Dutch oven meals over a camp fire, telling stories that bring past family history alive and that often times connect the discombobulated dots in a child’s mind. At the crack of dawn on opening morning is when the real action begins which is one of the most important reasons for wearing as much orange as humanly possible and why free roaming cows and anything else with fur should be off the mountain by the 15th of October. For some funny reason as soon as the deer hunt starts it seems that any animal or person with hair or has horns on it is often times confused as being a deer and many an unlucky brown cow has met their final fate as a result. Then the cow killing event gets expanded on every deer hunt around the late night campfire about the time the Dutch oven peach cobbler begins to bubble and a new generation of deer hunters finally

understand the yearly told story of why Uncle Bob spent six months in jail in 1972 and hasn’t touched a beer since. Aside from the deer hunt, fire wood gathering and fall potato digging are also big family events that at times keep the Wayne County clinic medical providers busy on late October weekends. Stitches, casts and flesh wounds make for good show and tell stories on Monday mornings at the Loa elementary school, just ask Savannah Williams. For the most part all the gardens in the Torrey area have been cleared of their bounteous fall harvest. Mason canning jars are about as scarce a commodity as a rubber tire was during the depression of the 1930’s because all the bachelors in the area have been hoarding the glass jars all year long to trade for full bottles of fruit jellies, dill pickled beans and many other bottled garden delicacies that will get them happily through the winter months. As a reality check and a possible reason why Uncle Bob might have been heavily drinking beer around the deer hunt campfire in 1972 is that annual property tax notices have hit nearly everybody’s Post Office boxes in the past week. Our once a year love letters (not to be confused with the much love related February Valentines Day) from our lovely and ever helpful Wayne County Treasurer remind us it is our turn to pay our dues for living in paradise or inherited property responsibility left to some of us as a reminder of local pioneer heritage. Property taxes are probably a prime reason why the leaves die and fall off of the trees this time of year, and to make matters worse why we are required to pay federal in-

come taxes in the spring. Is it any wonder that Thanksgiving and Christmas are inconspicuously placed in between both tax related events and little Tiny Tim in the “Christmas Carol” was reduced to limping around London grateful for a handout, and Scrooge somehow resembles the looks of a disheveled Uncle Sam instead of jolly Santa Clause? In words of wisdom from a good friend in Bicknell, “pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered” and other words of wisdom from another friend in Torrey, “It is hard to say no to a bat.” The Torrey Town $1,600,000.00 water project has progressed to a point where the new 250,000 gallon water storage tank has nearly reached completion and ahead of schedule due to the foresight of Grundy Concrete, the efforts of Wayne County Planning and Zoning Committee and the Wayne County Commissioners, Tom Jeffery, DeRae Fillmore and Rob Williams and project contractor Jackson Excavation of Bicknell, Utah and Jones and DeMille Engineering of Richfield, Utah in coordination with elected officials and employees of Torrey Town. Heavy duty rock eating trenching equipment have been on site on the eastern edges of Torrey Town this past week near the junction of Highway 24 and Highway 12 to upgrade out of town water connections, install far reaching fire hydrants and improve low fire flows. Visitors and residents alike may experience water project construction related delays on Highway 12 for the next week. Sleeping Rainbow residents can also expect water related construction events in their neighborhoods as undersized water lines are being replaced to improve

water pressure; much needed water storage capacity and increased fire flows. The continued patience of all residents and visitors affected by the 2012 Torrey Town water construction project is requested and very much appreciated. As an important seasonal reminder if you as a Torrey Town water user that may have accessed your personal water meter or disturbed the Torrey Town provided insulating foam pillow that protects your water meter from inevitable winter freezing temperatures, and you personally from life threatening snakebites and Black Widow spider attacks please contact the Torrey Water Department at 435 425 3600 as soon as possible. Not doing so may result in a loss of water service, damage to the electronically complicated newly installed water metering equipment or a long drawn out painful death as a consequence of poisonous snake or deadly flesh eating spider bites. Personal access to and disruption of insulating pillows in Torrey Town owned water meter barrels might require long hospital stays and or full payment for equipment and labor related damages. The Torrey Town Water Department highly suggests that all Torrey Town water users immediately install personally accessible shut off valves for private use as Torrey Town water meter access by private owners to water meter equipment and shut off valves is strictly prohibited. Aside from everything else autumn is a very special time of year. Enjoy it for what it is because for the luckiest of us we will have the privilege to begin life with a fresh start next year. October is Breast Cancer awareness month, celebrate life and help find a cure for cancer.

Well it is almost Halloween and autumn will soon be gone. Where has the year gone to? Unbelievable. We said goodbye today to our beautiful granddaughter Joanna as she returned to Richfield to get on with her life. She has decisions to make and we will miss her so much. She has been here for six months and has been a bright light in our home. She is the daughter of David and Debbie Jensen and our oldest granddaughter. Hope she doesn’t forget the road that leads to our house. She made lots of friends here this summer and loved working for Lance and Shane at the front desk of Ruby’s. We wish her the best luck in whatever conclusions she comes to, now. Thanks to the six ladies that came to help with the quilt that Joanna wanted to learn on. Anita Fletcher, Glenna Fletcher, Ramona Morreale, Iris Burr, Ellen (sorry I forgot her last name and she is new to Cannonville), Sandy Johnson and myself. We taught her how to tie and bind a quilt and she was thrilled. Sandy Johnson says: “Three cheers for Home Depot! They support the Cub Scout program and has generously donated wood kits for our Cub Scouts!! Awesome!” Congratulations to Jake and Serah Shepherd of Bryce Canyon City. They just had their first adorable little baby boy at the Valley View Medical Center. They have decided to name him Jacob and all is well in their world. Jake works at the Car Care Center at Ruby’s. Art and I went to Cedar to the eye doctor and then to Cannonview Middle School to a Fall Concert. Our grandson, Makay Jensen, son of Mike and Stacie Jensen, played the bassoon and the trombone in this concert. We are so proud

of him. Also playing in the concert was Westin Shakespear, son of Ryan and Erin Shakespear and grandson of Franz and Margaret Shakespear. He played a solo and did very well. We saw the grandchildren of Jim and Louise England as part of this concert. Shelby and Roman Dotson, children of Rob and Melinda Dotson had a part in the concert. They all did very well and it was great watching and listening to them. Congratulations on a job well done and to the teacher for her hard work with the kids. In Church today there were a lot of visitors: Brian and Shelly Clements and son Ian from Salt Lake, Ryan and Erin Shakespear from Cedar City with their family, David and Candice Shakespear of Roy and their family, and James and Mikki Shakespear of Cedar City were all here to visit Franz and Margaret Shakespear. Ryan and Laycee Johnson and children came from Torquerville to see Pete and Keela Mangum. Congratulations to Shandi Syrett who was baptized by her father, Brady Syrett. Her mom is Shawnee Syrett. Grandparents are Mondell and Florence Syrett of Tropic. If you need a ride to St. George on November 2nd please call Vicki Ahlstrom 679-8921, to arrange to ride in the Senior Citizen bus.. They will be more than happy to have you tag along for the trip. They will be leaving at 11:00 A.M. to allow time for lunch. The Scout over nighter was a huge success and all came home safely. Wes and Ellen Clarke and family went to St.George to see son Eric Clarke sworn into the Bishopric. Congratulations to you Eric. Eva Pollock has moved to Richfield to be near her daugh-

ter, Pauline Allen. She wasn’t sure she wanted to leave Tropic but she will be fine and have the help she needs as the Care Center. Sorry I took so much space for my news. If you call or send more of your news then mine would be less. Thanks

and have a great week. Voting is coming up very soon so be ready to vote and let’s have a huge turn out for the polls. And...thanks to the coaches, Nathan Platt and Scott Barton for a fine season and lots of support for the team.VS

ESCALANTE News by Marlene Haws ~ 826-4859 • The first thing I must do this week is make a correction! I have known all my life that Jaleen Vance only had one brother, Robert Liston. But last week I stated that Wayne Pollock was her brother, which is totally not true, Wayne is her son and I knew that! Old age is catching up to me, that’s my only explanation! Sorry! I just hope that made Jaleen feel younger! We had a lot of “home town” people running in the Marathon last weekend. To name a few: Nola Coombs Otterstrom, Salt Lake City, was the women’s first place winner in the race from Boulder to Escalante. She is a daughter of Vard and Mary Jane Coombs, Boulder. Bets are that she never, in all her wildest dreams, ever thought she would be running that route when she was riding the school bus all those years! Congratulations to her! After much debate, Jill Phillips opted to run the 26 mile race and finished with flying colors! Kim J. Ott (formerly of Tropic who may be your dentist now in St. George) and his fifteen year old son, David, both ran in the 26 mile race. Do any of you remember Craig Zufelt who used to live here and work for the BLM? He had two sons running in the 26 mile marathon. Brett Zufelt, Stansbury Park, Ut. and Scott Zufelt, Enoch, Ut. Other runners who have Escalante or county connections were: Jennifer Smith, Salt Lake City, took second place in the women’s ten mile race. She is the wife of Jared Smith and daughter-in-law of Margo Smith. Kristen Snedeger, Fremont, took third place in the ten miler. She is the daughter of Janeen and Brad Duncan, Loa, and a granddaughter of Deon and Arnold Alvey. Other participants in the ten mile race were: Misty Lyman Wilson, Big Water, Ut. daughter of Troy Lyman and Dixie Spencer, married to Brad Wilson, granddaughter of Lillian Lyman. Corinne Venuti Rubio, Beaver, who is the daughter of Frank and Leslie Venuti. Jack Reardon, Cedar City. Jack’s wife is the former Janice Haycock. He has probably built kitchen cabinets for some of you. Natalie Mallory, daughter of Doug and Barbara Haycock, Las Vegas, Nev. Jordon Cottam, wife of Chad Cottam, Cedar City and her sister, Lacee Leach, Panguitch.

Other Escalante participants were: Melani Torgersen, Dale Richards, Jarel Anderson, Ashley Beebe Chidester, and Cailon Causey ran the last mile and a half with the 64 year old cancer survivor, who was the final finisher, to bring the race to an almost tearful conclusion. There were a number of other runners who, we hope, will come back next year and bring their friends. The total number of runners was 22 in the 26 mile race and 33 in the ten mile. The committee of this first Escalante Canyons Marathon should be commended for a job well done! Committee members were: Brent Cottam, Drew and Mary Parkin, Lori Coleman, Louise and Larry Barnes, Sabrina Hughes, Dale Richards and Melani Torgersen. Timers were: Greg Allen, Wade and Lori Beebe. The runners all agreed that the volunteers were all some of the best they had seen. Their help was also greatly appreciated. Jace Taylor is home from his mission. He had planned to come home a little early and surprise everyone, but got a surprise himself when his parents, Jerry and Monica met him at the airport in New York! When they got him home he did surprise everyone here as they were not expecting him so soon. My son, Robert, and I went to Cedar City last Friday for my eye appointment. While having lunch at the Sizzler we were able to visit with Stan and Valerie (Shurtz) Huntington, Hatch, and our neighbors down the street, Reed and Karen Munson. The Munson’s were on their way to St. George for their weekly visit to the temple. We rarely see them here in town! Don Haws, his son Don Earl and his grandson, Robert, came from Kileen, Texas for a 4 or 5 day visit before winter sets in. They said they came to fish but they only spent one day fishing. Jim and Clo Coleman Walker, Oregon, came through our area recently on a trip to visit Clo’s brothers and sisters. They visited Jerry and Rosalie Coleman and Leah Coleman Button in Kanab; LaFay and Janet Coleman in Orderville; Frank and Kathryn Coleman, Don and Lillian Coleman and Dan Coleman here in Escalante and Barbara C. and Leo Gardner in Boulder. They stopped long enough to help Don with the cows and all played cards, a Coleman family must! Clo and Jim’s son is mar-

No it’s not your imagination it has been warm. September was the warmest, Sept. in history, world wide. I would think that October will follow along with more of the same. I didn’t see anyone in town today, and then I realized it was the first day of the deer hunt and everyone was in camouflage. Not being a hunter, I think that this is actually the fifth opening day; bow hunt, deer and elk, black powder deer and elk, I am probably wrong. Talking to a hunter, he told me that it’s so warm that as soon as the sun comes up the deer head for the trees. When we moved here 20 years ago, you could always tell when it was deer season; the snow was so deep that the deer would have to come down where they could be taken. I have been told that the last time that it snowed for deer season was 2007. I did see one good looking elk that a young man got with a bow, a couple of weeks ago. Normally we see deer in town eating the fruit out of the trees or the grass on our lawn. The Great flu shoot -out was a big success again this year, with (I have been told) over 3 hundred folks taking part in this great program. Again I hope you will follow

this up with a pneumonia and shingles vaccine. Paula Palmer had a very good bake sale and the town brought out the goodies. Again people responded by buying up all the goodies by 1:00. Paula would like to thank all of you that helped out on her playground equipment project, she brought in more than $500 dollars. It’s wonderful to see young people get involved in making a difference in our Town. I believe last Tuesday (Oct. 23rd) was the first day of early voting in Utah. Utah is one of the last states that still allow you to vote for your party. Whether you put a D or L or R in, you need to know that there are other non partisan positions that are up for election, Judges and School Board members, to name a few. We have some very bright young people running for school board, so take a few minutes to finish out your ballot. Panguitch High’s drama class is putting on the musical Joseph and the Technicolor Coat, this season. Elaine Baldwin and Cheryl Church have outdone themselves on this endeavor. They have 60 kids taking part in the play and it will be doubled casting again.

ried to Glen and Loretta Shaw’s youngest daughter, Veda, former Escalante residents. Glen died a few years ago and Loretta now resides in Oregon. Clo mentioned that Mark Lyman is a frequent visitor to their home in Oregon and they often reminisce about life in Boulder and the people they knew there. Jarrett and Tanya Taylor and family, St. George, spent the weekend with Ryan and Tari Cottam. They spent one day going to Hell’s Backbone. Tanya is Tari’s sister. Elder Brian Nashif recently returned from a LDS mission to the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area. He reported his mission in the Escalante first ward last Sunday. He is the son of Carol and Jeff Kraft (?). Our girls volleyball team took 3rd in the tournament here on the weekend. Piute was 1st, Panguitch 2nd and Milford 4th. A work meeting was held at the city offices last Tuesday, Oct. 16, before the regular council meeting. It was conducted by Harriett Priska, who has spearheaded a Historic District Nomination for Escalante for some time now. Cory Jensen, Architectural Historian/National Register & Architectural Survey Coordinator at the Utah State Historic Preservation Office was in attendance to discuss the nomination process and fielded a question and answer segment. He explained that no restrictions come with this designation. Property owners will retain all of their rights to maintain, alter or demolish their buildings as they see fit. Under the right conditions

there may be funds available to restore some of our old buildings that exist now. Property taxes will not increase as a result of a National Historic designation. The application process has already been voted on and approved by our former Mayor, Donnie Porter, and his council and again by incumbent Mayor, Jerry Taylor, and his council. If the Board and State Historic Preservation Officer approves the nomination it will be submitted to the Utah State Historic Preservation Review Board for approval in mid November. In city council meeting Dana Wagoner gave a report on the trip she and Mayor Jerry Taylor took recently with the Garfield County Commissioners, Mayor Talbot of Panguitch and two or three others from Panguitch, whose names I did not get. They toured Pagosa Springs, Durango, Silverton and Uray, Colorado and I think she said Moab, Ut. They were trying to get ideas of what can be done in our towns to attract tourist trade. They came away with a lot of ideas and decided we are sitting on a gold mine if we will put our heads together and decide where our travel council money can be put to the best use. Approval was given to purchase a Gas meter for the fire department. Approval was give to buy some round tables for the community center. Work is still ongoing to try to solve a road closure problem on the Elaine Shurtz property in the North West part of town.

Cheryl said you will be surprised by how well the boys are singing and dancing. These plays that are put on here are a must see and so much fun to see these kids perform. I think that they will be performed on November 2nd, 3rd and 9th and 10th. I will know better on the dates next week. With double casting you can see the play on two different nights and it will a be different look each time. The Elementary School’s program honoring Veterans will be held on Friday, November 9th, instead of on Monday. This way, after the program is over the kids can go home. October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast Cancer is 99% curable! Why you say are there always women dying from long bouts with breast cancer? The catch is early detection—you have to catch it in stage 1 or 2. Breast Cancer is at really a high level in So. Utah, it is almost an epidemic, I know at least 15 women who have beat this disease. It’s a very stressful process that you go through, but all of this passes and you will get another 20 years of life. The Pink night volleyball game at Piute is a reminder of how bad this disease is there

were over 50 pictures on the wall of breast cancer survivors in their community. You can’t be too young or too old to get a mammogram, a friend of mine lost his daughter when she was in her twenties. Those that are hit most are those over 40 and you should get an exam annually when you reach your fifties. Utah ranks last in women getting mammograms, with less than 40% of women getting this exam. In Garfield Co. we are lucky that we have a mammogram machine that comes to the local communities on a regular schedule. Women aren’t the only ones who neglect getting exams; men of Utah also rank last in prostate exams. I have lost too many friends to this problem; the old adage that you’ll die from something else before the prostate cancer will get you, is a lie. When life expectance was 62 that might have been true, not anymore, seeing a friend lying in a hospital suffering from this disease for months is heart breaking. I know it’s not a manly thing to get this check up, but suck it up and I have lost friends in their fifties to this disease. Pat and I are off to Disney Land, hope you get your deer. Mack O.

For Your Health

Before the Great Recession of 2008 overturned many longheld financial beliefs, it wasn’t uncommon for people to differentiate between “good debt” and “bad debt.” The thinking was that certain kinds of debt were worth taking on because you come out ahead in the long run. Buying a home and financing a college education were two notable examples. But when home values plummeted and the cost of a bachelor’s degree soared into five or six digits, those once-safe investments in your future suddenly seemed risky or unattainable. Now’s a good time to step back and examine the concept of good debt vs. bad debt and why, in certain cases, acquiring debt may still make sense – provided you plan carefully and don’t exceed what you can reasonably expect to repay. This simple distinction still applies: Taking on so-called good debt can help boost your credit rating or allow you to buy something that will increase in value over time, whereas bad debt often fuels the purchase of items that are disposable, unnecessary or rapidly depreciable. One of the best ways to build strong credit history is to show lenders you can pay off debt responsibly. You’re more apt to qualify for a mortgage, car loan, or other large debt if you’ve demonstrated sound repayment behavior. Just remember: Carrying multiple loans or high-limit credit cards could harm your rating, since lenders might worry you’re taking on more debt than you can repay. Student loans. The average college graduate earns $47,422 a year, compared to $26,349 for high school graduates – a difference of $21,073. Using simple math, some calculate the difference in total earnings over a 40-year work life as more than $800,000. However, such estimates don’t factor in the crippling student loan debt many graduates face or their inability to find work in a chosen field during difficult times. But still, the unemployment rate among college grads is roughly half that of high school grads – 4.5 percent vs. 8.4 percent. College is still a worthwhile investment for many people if they don’t go overboard on loans and choose a degree with good earnings and employment potential. Mortgages. Before the real estate crash, homeownership was considered good debt because historically, when someone finally paid off their mortgage, their home was usually worth much more than the purchase price. For many, this probably still will be true, unless they bought during the market upswing or are forced to sell before prices can recover. After all, mortgage interest rates are historically low and interest and mortgage points are still tax-deductible. Just don’t buy more house than you can afford. Factor in expenses like property tax, primary mortgage insurance, homeowners dues, utilities and repairs – and if you get an adjustable rate mortgage, calculate how high rates could climb. Bad debt. What qualifies as bad debt hasn’t changed since the recession, but budget-conscious consumers are paying more attention now. Meals out, excessive vacations, and unnecessary clothing or electronics – wants vs. needs – all qualify if you’re spending beyond your means. Basically, if you can’t pay the bill in full within a month or two, reexamine whether it’s a worthwhile expense; particularly if you don’t have at least six to nine month’s pay stashed in an emergency fund or you’re trying to save for a car or home.

You KNOW what these are...

Causes of Dry Skin Dry skin is a common condition that is usually self-treatable with nonprescription products such as emollients and moisturizers. It may be caused by a variety of environmental, lifestyle, or medical factors. Low Humidity: Serious medical conditions can cause dry skin, but such causes are not as common as everyday factors. One of the major contributors is dryness of the air outdoors and in the home or workplace. During the summer, hot air can hold a great deal of water, making for high humidity. During the winter months, however, cold air cannot hold as much moisture, so the outside air becomes very dry. When home furnaces heat the air, it dries out even more, so that inside air in the winter has a very low relative humidity. As people live in dry air, the eyes, throat, respiratory tract, and skin all become abnormally dry. Everyone experiences troublesome drynes of the skin at This is easy to remedy. When the air begins to turn cold one time or another. Dryness is more common on the in late October or November, run a vaporizer or humidifier lower legs, arms, elbows, thighs, and sides of the abdoin each room where the family lives and sleeps. Be sure to men. It may be noticed as cracking, itching, scaliness and/ drink a good amount of water every day to help with interor peeling of the skin. The affected skin may be irritated nal hydration. or inflamed. Bathing Habits: Dry skin can also be caused by bathing habits. Here are some simple steps to take. Keep baths and showers as short as possible, and use warm rather than hot water. Physicians suggest applying soap only to the face, armpits, and genital area. Switch to mild cleansers such as Aveeno, Dove, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. Dermatologists advise taking baths only every other day. When drying the skin after bathing, do not rub the towel across the skin. Instead, gently pat the skin dry. Recommended Products After bathing and drying, while the skin is still damp, use bath oils and emollient products to help retain moisture. The best products are thick ointments with a greasy consistency, such as Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. Alcohol dries the skin, so products containing it are not as good as ointments. Avoid scratching itchy areas with your fingernails. Instead, cover any area that itches with a cool wet cloth. Nonprescription hydrocortisone ointments or creams can help if there is some mild inflammation of the skin. When to See a Physician Pharmacists may advise patients to see a doctor if the skin is itching but no rash is present, or if dryness and itching are so severe that sleeping becomes difficult. Pay special attention to skin that is open or wounded. Any break in the skin can be the entry point for bacteria. The dryness itself can break the skin open, or vigorous scratching can cause open cuts or sores. If the skin is broken, monitor it closely for signs of infection (swelling, redness, heat, pain) and see a physician as soon as possible to get an antibiotic or antibacterial prescription. Finally, if the simple steps described above to prevent or treat are not helpful, it is best to see a physician to ensure that there is not a more serious underlying medical problem. Remember, if you have questions, Consult Your Pharmacist

Here’s some fun facts... According to the National Confectioners Association, approximately 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold each year. TIME Magazine has named candy corn this year’s “It” fall flavor (maybe because of those controversial candy corn Oreos). But this popular candy had humble beginnings. Created in the 1880s by George Renninger for the Wunderlee Candy Company, it was then produced by the Goelitz Candy Company (now known as Jelly Belly). Each kernel of candy corn was initially crafted by hand. Workers mixed the main ingredients: sugar, water, and corn syrup-then added fondant and marshmallow to the mixture to increase its smoothness. The mixture was poured into molds, one color at a time. Today, machines do most of the work of creating the candy corn kernels, which are three times the size of an actual kernel of corn. At Brach’s, the top manufacturer of candy corn, the process takes 24 hours: Corn starch is poured, top to bottom, into a tray with kernel-shaped depressions. The colors are added-yellow, orange, and white, in that order-and when the cornstarch hardens, the kernels are polished, bagged, and sold. Each year, consumers buy enough of Brach’s candy corn that, if the kernels were laid end to end, they’d circle the Earth 4.25 times.

WCBA president Ted Winder reflects on service “in the spirit of cooperation”

WCBA past president Ted Winder (photo by Ann Torrence)

It was on the west side of the Sunglow Restaurant in Bicknell. That area for groups, with the sliding wood doors; you know the place. Patty and her crew cheerfully took our orders and before long, amid the chatter, our tasty lunches were served. This was my first meeting with the newly-organized Wayne County Business Association (WCBA). There were about sixteen people who attended. I only knew about a third of them but I was impressed with the ideas they had and the spirit of cooperation they shared for the businesses in our area. That was nearly 4 years ago and much has happened since then. The four key purposes of the WCBA are to provide networking opportunities for our members to know one another, assist them in connecting to resources that will help their business thrive, facilitate opportunities for training & workshops where learning and improvement take place and to promote buying local so more of our dollars can remain to benefit our community.

Yesterday (October 24) my term as President of the WCBA was completed. Capable new leaders have been elected to continue moving this organization forward. For me this has been a time of reflection on where we’ve come as an association and a look ahead to some of our aspirations for the future. Here are some examples: • Significant to me at our quarterly meetings is when two business owners are introduced for the first time and something good happens. It was thrilling to watch a young start-up landscape owner meet a motel manager who needed work done and before they left that day there was an agreement for 3 months of work. That’s networking! • When I joined the WCBA a main focus was on getting a Pedestrian-Bicycle Pathway planning process off the ground. After much work and a successful start, development of this important activity was moved to the hands of the County with the support of the Six-County Government team along with state and federal agencies. The WCBA continues to support this important project. We are pleased to help take a lead in identifying and growing new ideas. • The Torrey Farmers Market just completed its third year. People enjoy the fresh vegetables & fruits, eggs, baked goods along with other hand-crafted items that are sold here. Effort will continue to be made to expand the number of vendors and buyers for next summer. (Facebook/Wayne County Farmers Market). • The WCBA started the Heritage Starfest which completed it’s third season this month. The event continues to grow and will now become part of the Entrada Institute programing. (Facebook/Heritage Starfest). • The updated Business Guide this year included 58 paid ads and 84 listings along with 54 community ads for festivals, events and community partners (valued at $6,750). With the addition of the detailed area map, this has been a great way to introduce customers to our local businesses. • Newspaper page, by the WCBA (with the help of generous funding by the Special Service District and help from the Insider), started in January and has ran each week with articles of local business interest, upcoming community calendar and a free place for our members to advertise their specials and deals. • Our organization joined the Utah Chamber of

UPCOMING November 12 (Mon) Christy Nebeker from Six County Association of Governments will be at the Wayne County Community Center at 1 p.m. to help seniors on an individual basis re-enroll for Medicare Benefits. She will answer Medicare questions and provide information about secondary insurance.

Commerce Association this year to take advantage of state resources and networking with other parts of Utah that face similar challenges. • We have appreciated working with the Wayne County Economic Development office to offer training and resources to our businesses. It was fun watching one business owner bring her 15 employees (many were teens) to the Customer Service training in June and to hear of the positive changes that took place in their business since then. • The Micro-Enterprise Loan Fund is a new project that the WCBA is partnering with to make capital available to launch or expand local businesses. We are in the early stages of this and hope to see grant funding in the next year. • Our hope for the future is to continue to reach beyond our 135 members to involve even more of our local businesses. The other members of the WCBA would love them to participate! We desire to partner more with our high school in facilitating internships and teaching of pre-employment skills & business etiquette. The spirit of cooperation is our county’s greatest asset! Without that selfless effort, even with howls of criticism by some of the CAVE people in our mist (Citizens Against Virtually Everything), we wouldn’t have much of a community. I’ve come to appreciate all those who give of themselves, both volunteer and paid, in time and energy for the many good things that make our community a better place to live. Not just the WCBA, but everyone who serves on a town council, their church, an event organizing committee, in the schools, government agencies, or planning council -Thank You!! With more than 40 years in the travel industry, Ted has directed groups in more than 60 countries world-wide. As a small business owner, he has enjoyed serving the community as the president of the WCBA for the past two years. He and his wife JaNae make their home in Torrey.

Cohabitation Agreements By Jeffery J. McKenna

Cohabitation is a way of life that has become more common even among older couples. There are many reasons couples chose to live together rather than marry, including reducing living expenses, or not wanting to give up certain assets (i.e., social security or other retirement benefits) that may be lost if a person remarries. However, unless you define your partnership through a written legal contract known as a Cohabitation Agreement, you may be taking a great risk. Although you may regard your partner as a family member, the law may not. As a result, your partner may not be taken care of in the manner in which you wish, or inherit your estate should you pass away. Paradoxically, the law may provide certain benefits for your partner that you had no intention of giving to him or her. The courts have precedent to use equitable doctrines to apportion assets between cohabitants to prevent hardship and injustice. It is far better to be proactive and to define your own partnership through a Cohabitation Agreement, a private contract between cohabitants. It is a powerful tool for disclosing the financial and personal expectations of the relationship. It can prevent misunderstandings and legal battles by contractually establishing the rights and obligations of the parties. The attorney drafting the Cohabitation Agreement will outline the parties’ wishes regarding property and the possible sharing of any assets, as well as the terms of the relationship. It can cover any financial aspect of the relationship, including, but not limited to, the distribution of property in case of death or breakup,

obligation for (or elimination of) financial support during the relationship or upon its dissolution, the responsibility of each party for specific debts, ownership of the principal residence upon breakup of the relationship, definition of support, custody or visitation rights for minor children, specification of health insurance coverage, determination of the right to serve as guardian/conservator in the event of incapacitation, and establishment of the right to make medical decisions. Each partner should have individual legal advice, and the contract ideally should be drawn up prior to living together. Note that there is a difference between Cohabitation Agreements and Prenuptial Agreements. Cohabitation Agreements are governed al-

most exclusively by general contract principles. They usually are no longer valid if the parties marry. A Prenuptial Agreement goes into effect only upon marriage and is binding throughout the marriage unless modified. From the viewpoint of Estate Planning, a Cohabitation Agreement can eliminate concerns that your cohabitating partner may, against your desires, attempt to access your assets upon dissolution of the relationship or upon your death. Your rights and obligations would have already been set forth in your Cohabitation Agreement. Conversely, a Cohabitation Agreement can help ensure that your assets will go only to your choice of beneficiaries, which may include your cohabitating partner if you so wish. Jeffery J. McKenna is an attorney licensed in three states and serving clients in Utah, Nevada, and Arizona.
