RESIDENTS CALL FOR HELP TO STOP UTAH’S 1ST DIRTY COAL STRIP MINE
CONCERNS OVER PROPOSED PRIVATE DAM BORDERING LOA By Marsha Chappell, Loa
As published in last week’s edition of INSIDER, there has been a permit application filed by Dixie Leavitt to construct a reservoir with two earthen dams in the area of Mt. Poonikee located at the west end of Third South street in Loa (Loa Rod & Gun Club Area). This would be on private ground with privately owned water from Road Creek. As stated, this would be built to impound water for irrigation and recreational activities. Questions: Why is it necessary to impound already privately owned water in yet another reservoir/pond when there are already four ponds located within a short distance of each other for irrigation purposes? Who is benefitting from the recreational facilities? Since Loa Town culinary water
line would be impacted by this proposal, what happens when and if the line has to be re-located? Who pays? What benefit is there to the town of Loa or Wayne County? There are many homes and farms that would be impacted by this proposal. What happens to all of us if one of those dams was breeched? They said it couldn’t happen to the Teton Dam in Idaho, but what happened there? With 1032 acre feet of water flowing at a high rate of speed, it could possibly affect the entire county as it makes its way down the river toward Lake Powell. How many people would then be affected? Would we all have to purchase flood insurance? What happens to Capital Reef Park Area if this happens? How about
the fish hatchery in Bicknell? The list goes on and on. Be aware of what’s happening in your own neighborhood! The Army Corps of Engineers is accepting comments until December 9, 2011. Again, why was the comment period listed as from November 15, 2011 – December 9, 2011 when the first day of publication was December 1st? Please make your comments known by contacting Karen Clementsen, USACE St. George Regulatory Office Permitting, 195 East Tablernacle Suite 30, St. George UT 847703474 – 435-986-1961 or Karen.L.Clementsen@ usace.army.mil. Be sure to keep copies of any correspondence you have with anyone connected with this proposal. COMMENT NOW!
LOCATED NEXT TO BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK
Okay -here it is- our opportunity to be heard. Please read below and attend one of the meetings (if possible) BUT more importantly please send in your comments on how this coal mine and the truck traffic will impact each and everyone who lives or visits this beautiful area. If each of you will PLEASE pass this on you can help us inform many people of a devastating move by our Federal Government. So, give each of us a gift this year, share the info and let others share likewise. Thanks! Bobbi Bryant, Panguitch The BLM has just released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on the proposed Alton coal mine in southwest Utah, right next to Bryce Canyon National Park. Scientific analysis shows that the Alton mine would have a devastating impact on the region’s wildlife including mule deer and sage grouse, air and water quality, and the growing tourism and recreation economy. With its stunning redrock sandstone spires and hoodoos, Bryce Canyon is one of America’s favorite national parks, drawing

over 1.2 million visitors per year. The nearby small communities of Panguitch and Kanab depend on this constant flow of tourists, who arrive on Highway 89, a scenic byway. Putting a 3,500 acre coal mine in the middle of this spectacular region -- and allowing huge coal trucks on Highway 89 every seven minutes, rumbling along and spewing coal dust 24 hours a day, 6 days a week -- will destroy everything the Bryce Canyon area is known for. A local public meeting will be held in Panguitch in which the BLM will be taking Public Comment in Panguitch – December 1st, 2011 at the Panguitch City Hall/Library, 25 South 200 East, Panguitch, UT Specific talking points when addressing the BLM: · The Bryce Canyon region is one of west’s most scenic areas, with Bryce and Zion National Parks (drawing millions of visitors yearly), Cedar Breaks National Monument, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Scenic Byway U.S. 89, Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, etc. The communities of Panguitch and Kanab depend on this tourism/outdoor recreation economy. This is absolutely the wrong place for a strip mine. · The DEIS makes the ridiculous claim that “new sightseeing recreational opportunities would be created.….through the viewing of active mining operations.” Tell the BLM that tourists from around the world do not come to this region to see a strip mine or an industrial area. · The mine site is home
to the most southern-located sage grouse lek (mating habitat) in the world. It is already being impacted by the existing strip mine and truck traffic and will most likely be completely destroyed if the mine is allowed to expand. · The Alton Coal Mine expansion plan would allow up to 300 huge trucks to haul dirty coal along 110 miles of historic Route 89 (a scenic by-way) every day — that’s one truck leaving the mine every seven minutes! This is unacceptable. · The mine site is in the heart of a documented migration corridor for the renowned Paunsaugunt mule deer herd, an area that is designated by the Utah Division of Wildlife as “summer substantial habitat.” This mule deer herd, numbering currently around 5,000, provides one of the most coveted hunting opportunities in the West. If the expansion is allowed, many more deer will be killed by truck traffic on U.S. 89. · Businesses in the tourist communities of Panguitch and others nearby will be negatively impacted by the coal truck traffic, noise and coal dust. It will also impact the health of locals who live and work in this region. · Strip mining will cause surface water pollution, thereby negatively impacting the area’s rivers such Sevier River , Kanab Creek and others. · Bryce Canyon National Park’s famous night-time skies will be impacted by the constant lighting from the 24-hr/day mining operation.

ENTERTAINMENT & EVENTS
THE BOULDER BUCKAROOS PUPPET SHOW On November28th, the Boulder Elementary Students—AKA the Boulder Buckaroos performed a puppet show “The adventures of Slim and Miss Prim,” adapted from the children’s book “Slim and Miss Prim” by Robert Kinerk and illustrated by Jim Harris. The puppet show was well attended by parents, relatives and many others from the Boulder community. The puppets were made by the performers themselves out of Paper Mache. Among the props constructed for the show was a clever “cardboard band” consisting of a piano, drums, guitar and horn played by some of the puppets. In addition to learning their lines, our young Boulder thespians learned many additional lessons from their performance: the art of puppet making; the art of performing; the art of adapting a book into a play; the art of memorization;
the importance of practice; the importance of meeting a deadline and perhaps most of all the importance of working together and achieving a goal. On Thursday, December 1nd, our Buckaroos will be able to use many of the skills learned above when they again entertain our community with their performance of “This is My Country,” for the dedication of the re-built & expanded Boulder town hall.

PHS SPORTLINE BY MACK OETTING
1-A BASEBALL ALL-STATE TEAM MVP Dalan Bennett 1st TEAM ALL-STATE Tyce Barney, Tyler Brinkerhoff, Jory Owens 2nd TEAM ALL-STATE Cory Long and Kaden Figgins Dalan’s selection was probably the easiest that the board had to make. Dalan pitched in all three games of the State Championship and won them all. Because of bad weather, the championships were played over two week allowing Dalan to pitch in all three games and he only gave up one run in the games. In the final game against Wayne (a team that beat the Bobcats twice this year) Dalan shut them down with only one run and the Cats won 10-1 to win their second Championship in three years. Tyler Brinkerhoff, went 4 for 5 in that game and I doubt that there is a better catcher in the State than Jory Owens. Jory weights only about 110# soaking wet, but has a rifle for an arm and wasn’t afraid to block the plate. Tyce is only a sophomore and is an excellent athlete and very good at whatever he does. Way to go Bobcats! The Lady Cats had an exciting week, with a game out in Escalante against the Moquis. Even though Escalante only have 7 players they gave the Cats all they wanted. The Cats got off to a great start. 10 zip, sinking 5 of 6 shots. However the Cats fell behind 15 to 13 as their shots just wouldn’t fall. Again the Cats shot around 20%. However the game see sawed back and forth and went in to overtime, tied at 40. Overtime was another story with Escalante getting in to foul trouble and the Cats converting at the foul line. The Cats pulled away and won the game 49 to 44, to escape with a win. The next night they had a JV game against Cross Creek and it turned into a laughter. At halftime the Ladies were ahead 25 to 2. They went on to win 52 to 9. Cross Creek is supposed to be playing with a varsity team next year, but I can’t see how they will pull it off. The Lady Cats play here against Milford tonight, for their first home game of the season and it will be their first test. Milford will bring their 7th and 8th grade teams and they play a game at 4:00. I hope you can make it to these games, because this is the Lady Cats future, beside they are really fun to watch. Milford is the only game for the Ladies this week. They really need the fan support, so drop what ever you are doing and come on out for the excitement. Next week they travel over to Wayne on Wednesday the 14th and then they travel down to the annual Mesquite tournament, on the 16th and 17th. The Bobcats seemed to want to excite the fans with their play. Last week they beat Salina with a buzzer beater by Tyce Barney and won by 1 point. This week the Cats also beat another 2-A team, Enterprise taking them by 3 in another close game. The next night the Cats played against a very rough Cross Creek JV team. Cross Creek led a half time by a score of 40 to 27. The Cats came roaring back to hold Cross Creek to only 13 points in the second half and won going away 70 to 53. Tyce Barney ended up with 32 points and Dalan had 20. Dalan had 42 in the JV Game against Enterprise. The Cats are still undefeated. The Cats had a game last night against Kanab another 2-A team, hope you made it, you need to come early to watch these young players. On Friday and Saturday they have games up at Richfield against Duchesne at 7:00 and Saturday they play against Tabiona at 4:30. Come on up to the SVC arena for what could be some teams that the Cats could meet at State. The Panguitch wrestling tournament came off great. Matt Houston came up with a great idea to cut down on the time it takes for an event. Two years ago the final day ran till 11:00, this year it was over by 3 o’clock and when you have teams coming from as far away as Park City and San Juan, this was wonderful. There were 23 teams there and this is by far the biggest event that is held at the Triple C Arena, there wasn’t any parking to be had. The Cats took second in the 1-A teams and 3 wrestlers placed with Jory Owens getting MVW and took first place, Cade Cole took second to a 3-A wrestler and Rowdy Josie taking 6th. All of the freshmen wrestlers placed. The Bobcat wrestlers travel up to North Sevier for a match against Salina to night Dec. 8. The fans have been great for all of the events that went on this week and are appreciated by all of the players.

tHe lAuGhiNg pOiNt!!
By Cynthia Kimball How? To start, it has something to do with pornography, Xbox 360, a need to be popular, Facebook, golf, a television sitcom or, gosh forbid, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders show, “Making the Team” (I promise you, I just Googled this show’s name). Look, I chose some things that are in people’s hearts. All of these things are okay things (note the word “okay” with the exception of pornography and, perhaps the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders show), but it’s when these things become more important or the most important things in your heart when there’s a problem. And since we are coming upon the season of giving, what a better time to reexamine what’s in your heart especially since someone you may or may not know, right this very moment, is praying for help and needs you. Yes, you. Not long ago, I heard Elder Paul E. Koelliker of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, speak. He and his wife had recently returned from a mission to Africa. As he spoke, you could hear a pin drop; his
“You Change Your Life by Changing Your Heart”
spirit was this strong and moving. All eyes and ears were on him. He was Savior-like. The only thing that mattered to him was finding our brothers and sisters who need help. And each time he mentioned this, he sobbed. Yes, Elder Koelliker was emotional, but it was because of his intense desire to find those who are lost and in need and to find them now. So, how can we become like an Elder Koelliker or even Christ himself? Let’s find out by examining, once again, our examples from above. Instead of viewing pornography convince someone their life is worth living. Instead of playing Xbox 360 24/7 or all weekend or night long make sure someone has a meal or meals. Instead of having a need to be popular befriend someone who is not considered popular by worldly standards and let them sit at your lunch table, include them in an activity, acknowledge their name and or something about them. Instead of being on Facebook and playing Farmville all day or night long, help someone find their gifts, talents and even their purpose
GIVE THE GIFT OF HEALTH!
in life. Instead of playing golf all day Saturday, with your buddies, spend Saturday golfing with your wife or hiking with your wife and kids (or some other activity). Instead of watching the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader’s: Making the Team show while your wife’s in the other room making dinner help your wife make dinner and genuinely tell her how beautiful she is in the process (and for added bonus points, tell her you loved her cooking and clean-up afterward without asking). So, what’s in your heart today? Someone once said, “You change your life by changing your heart.” If you are up for a challenge (which actually is an opportunity, if you think about it), today’s the day especially since someone needs you. Can you honestly proceed forth with your worldly desires knowing this? I’ll leave you with that.

NOT MY BOOTS
The nursery school teacher had spent half an hour dressing her charges for outdoor playtime, pulling on boots, zipping and unbuttoning coats, matching mittens and gloves. As she finished struggling with Jennifer’s boots, she let out a sigh of relief. Then Jennifer tugged on her arm. “These boots aren’t mine, teacher.” With a groan the teacher knelt down and pulled off the boots. “Do you know whose boots these are, Jennifer?” “Sure. They’re my sister’s. Mom makes me wear them anyway.”
My friend was at the beauty parlor when she overheard another woman rattle on to the manicurist about the sad state of her marriage. “Things have gotten so bad,” she said, “I think I might ask for a divorce. What do you think?” “That’s a serious matter,” came the reply. “I think you should consult another manicurist.”
A customer wanted to ask his attractive waitress for a date, but couldn’t get her attention. When he was able to catch her eye, she quickly looked away. Finally he followed her into the kitchen and blurted out his invitation. To his amazement, she readily consented. He said, “Why have you been avoiding me all this time? You wouldn’t even make eye contact.” “Oh,” said the waitress, “I thought you wanted more coffee.”
There was a pretty nurse named Carol who broke her engagement to a doctor. She was explaining everything to a friend. “Do you mean to say,” exclaimed Cindy, “that the bum asked you to give back the ring AND all his presents ?” “Not only that,” said Carol, “he sent me a bill for 37 visits.”
Returning from a trip to visit my grandmother in California, I was stopped by a state trooper in Kansas for exceeding the speed limit. Grateful to have received a warning instead of a ticket, I gave him a small bag of my grandmother’s delicious chocolate-chip cookies and proceeded on my way. Later, I was stopped by another trooper. “What have I done?” I asked. “Nothing,” the trooper said, smiling. “I heard you were passing out great chocolate-chip cookies.”

Saturday was a day that everything went right. Santa came to the Social Hall toa record amounts of kids. The kids let Santa know what their wishes were for Christmas and all the kids got gifts of candy. There was one bag of candy left when all was done. Usually the children are gone by 11:30, but this year the fun lasted till 12:15. Santa went over to the extended care center and passed out Christmas gifts to all of the patients. This is a lot of fun for the seniors and adds a little fun to their stay. I can’t say enough about how much help Santa’s Elves were, Sierra Allen and Cianna Swartzmiller, they have been helping with the Sub for Santa for a second year. They also went to the Elementary to bring letters to the students about Santa’s coming. For all those that shop locally there was a big drawing for some really great prizes. This drawing will continue for two more Saturdays. Shopping locally has so much advantage and this just adds to the local economy. In the evening there was the Annual Christmas home tour. With more than double those attending as in the past; the homes were all wonderful and I heard nothing but compliments about each one of them. Everyone got to see Allen and Jennie Henrie’s home that replaced the old Henrie home that burned down earlier this year. Allen said he felt terrible about losing his home, but on the following Friday Japan was hit by the tsunami and thousands lost their lives and hundred of thousands of homes were lost, this put his loss in perspective. The Henrie’s had moved their manger scenes out in the garage and were able to save them. Many thanks to the Veaters, Houstons, Marshalls, and the Henrie families, for showing their homes for the Sub
for Santa program. The program received some badly needed money. Last week we had another home fire at the Hank Mahan home and this also was a total loss. Hank passed away three weeks ago and this is a terrible loss for his wife Carol. We send our heartfelt condolences to you and your sons. The Care and Share is open this week starting on the 7th and runs through the Saturday the 10th. Again thanks to Commissioner Pollock there will be meat for Christmas. There is very little food available for those needy families, if you have any extra can food you can take it to the Care and Share before Saturday, it would be greatly appreciated. Panguitch High School, student body had their annual food drive. They had a competition between the difference classes and the sophomore class won. Noelle Perkins who is on the student body council, brought over 320 pounds of cans goods. This is a lot of food. Thank you Panguitch High School! As good as Saturday was, when I walked into Church Sunday, the Bishop announced the passing of Marilyn Bulkley. I wish I had the ability to put into words of how I feel about her. Through my tears, I am going to try to write what I know about Marilyn. Marilyn taught school at the Elementary School for 28 years, only to retire 4 years ago to accept a position out at Bryce Canyon. To say she was a teacher is understating what she instilled in her students of her great love for learning. She taught the 5th grade and loved science and to many of her students this was their only brush with science till they got to college. Marilyn ideas knew no boundaries, she built an outside schoolroom at Little Dam and used it to teach her students about
the outdoors and all of Mother Natures wonders. The classroom was wiped out during a flood, but this didn’t stop her, she went to work to rebuilt it. Because there wasn’t anyone to teach Kindergarten, Marilyn took on this challenge and spent her final years at the school teaching the Kindergarten kids. It was fun watching her working with these young students; she was a human dynamo, working with each child, like they were her own. When Marilyn retired it wasn’t for long, she went out to the Bryce Canyon, to continue her teaching, with her own schoolhouse out at Sunrise Point. Last March, I took the 7th grade class out to Bryce Canyon to Para Point, where they meant Marilyn and went snow shoeing. She showed the students how to use the snow shoes and then took them on 2- one mile hikes, with her leading the way. Last summer, I drove the shuttle bus at the Park. On the weekdays, there was always a school bus parked by her schoolhouse. They came from all over the state and many times she was leading a group of student along the rim trail. Marilyn was an ardent outdoors person who loved to hunt with her husband Russell. One summer she took a group of students down the Colorado River to go whitewater rafting; a trip many of them still talk about. Marilyn took everyday as it was her last and accomplished more in her short life than most of us wouldn’t be able to do if we lived to be 150. I, like many of you, have never had anything affect me as her passing. I know that she lives in the hearts of everyone that ever met her. God bless you Marilyn Bulkley, we love you. You will never be forgotten. Mack O.

Starting my column off today with a sad note. A dear, wonderful friend is gone from our midst. Marilyn Bulkley passed away on Sunday Morning and left a big hole in our hearts and communities. Marilyn was vibrant, energetic and full of wonderful ideas that benefited the children of Garfield County. Back in 1980 when I began my teaching career so did Marilyn and we both started out at Bryce Valley Elementary. She taught Kindergarten and I was in Second Grade. We had lots of good memories that we made together and then she went to Panguitch to teach and we still went to workshops and other activities together. When she retired from teaching she went to Bryce Canyon National Park to work for the Natural History department. While there Marilyn put together many wonderful adventures for the students of Garfield County and any other schools that were interested. They did the bird count each winter to find out how many and what kinds of birds came into our area. Marilyn ran science camps and also did the third grade outdoor classroom. She came into the schools and touched the lives of many of our students and teachers and gave them new avenues of learning and information. Marilyn loved the students and working with them. She was innovative and creative with what she helped everyone learn about. You could always see Marilyn with a smile on her face and eagerness from her soul to reach out to the children. She came each year to our Utah Past and Present and put her touch on that program as well. We love you Marilyn and you will be missed so much. God must have a special job for you in Heaven. To Russell and their girls we send our love and prayers. You are in our thoughts today!! So long dear friend of Garfield County. Congratulations to Dawson Shakespear on moving up into the Deacons. He is the son of Travis Shakespear of Henrieville and Tammy Shakespear. Lyllian Le Fevre is the proud grandmother. Sage Roundy and the Relief Society came to the Young Woman in Henrieville and gave them Christmas gift ideas. Soon if not now you will be able to go ice skating at Ruby’s Inn. The rink is built and filled and so watch for the time and place and strap on your skates and go have some winter fun. The walls on the Bryce Canyon City fire station are going up rapidly and it is starting to look like a fire house. Have you noticed all the Christmas lights around our county? Lots and they look wonderful. We are still waiting for the light elf to come and finish ours so we can light up too. This is that special time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus and all He did for us. We say Merry Christmas to all we meet and let them know we are thinking of the reason we celebrate this season. Hope
all of you have a great week and PLEASE call or email with your news. Thanks VS BRYCE VALLEY ELEMENTARY .by Vicki D.

For being good Citizens the week of November 28th: Kindergarten, Ryker Chynoweth First Grade Loyd Roberts Second Grade Ivy Johnson Third Grade Lydia Smith Fourth Grade Sadie Stevens Fifth Grade Ambry Flores Sixth Grade Breanna Nelson HOOFBEAT by Sam Cloud (BVHS For once, I find myself stumped by a lack of creative scribblings. Oddly enough, things lately have been going pretty normal. The academics are progressing along normally, and the athletics have stabilized into a nice routine. Wrestling and basketball are both doing well, with regular games and tournaments. Everyone is working hard, and things are looking good for everyone. However, and to my regret, I am without the details for any of the recent athletic events. As such, I have almost no news to write, which is quite a shame. Fortunately for me, I am experienced enough to be able to write an article even when there is positively nothing to write about. It really comes in handy for those 10-page papers in English. Christmas is still being eagerly anticipated, and few are bothering to hide their relentless countdown toward freedom. Christmas break is about 13 days away, with only 8 and a half days of school remaining. Many are hoping for some kind of freak snowstorm on the last week of school so that we can get some snow days, but the odds of that are looking pretty slim. HOOFBEAT SPORTS of BVHS by Vicki D. Syrett Girls Basketball: They have played four games since the start of the season. They went to Richfield to play at the Sevier Valley Center. They played Duchesne, Green River and Parowan and won. They also played Beaver and lost
by two points. The girls are doing very well and have been playing some 2A teams as well as 1A teams. The event in Richfield was the “Hall of Fame Game” where the first and second place teams were invited to play. Coming up next the JV will play Diamond Ranch out of Hurricane. Then coming up this weekend they will travel to Kanab for the Cowgirl Classic on Friday and Saturday. It will be the freshman team, the JV team, and the varsity girls as well. Good luck girls and keep smiling you are doing great. Coach is Tyson Brinkerhoff with Bart Palmer as his assistant. Boys Basketball: They traveled to Millard and won their game by 27 points. Braxtyn Syrett and Jake Pearson both made three 3 point shots and did an excellent job of playing as they were the top scorers for this game. We won the freshman, JV, and Varsity games. Then on Friday we played Kanab and won by nine points with Eddie Dunham knocking 32 of the points for the teams. Congratulations boys and keep up the great work. On Wed. they will play in Parowan. Coach is Eric Jessen and Gary Syrett is his assistant. WE will have news for you next time on our newly put together Wrestling team. Good luck to all our athletes and keep on playing well and fair.

The general statewide hunt will be held in May. More information about Utah’s 2012 turkey hunting season is available in the 2011–2012 Utah Upland Game and Turkey Guidebook.

Marlene Haws With Thanksgiving over we can now begin to lose a little weight before Christmas. Most of us are already a little lighter in the pocketbook if not around the waistline. But wasn’t it great to be with family and enjoy the holiday fun? As promised, I got to shop in St. George on Saturday and it was quite nice and calm! Not like some of the stories I was hearing about black Friday! But then there was the ride home on Sunday! Traffic was horrendous on the freeway! I am always glad to get back home where things are less complicated! Do you think that has to do with the ailment they are now calling A.G.E.? The dinner at the Stake Center went well I hear. Thanksgiving dinner was served to approximately 40 people and food was delivered to 22 homes as well. A nice gesture and those who attended enjoyed it, even to the extent that some who came to eat joined in to help with the serving and the cleanup. The committee would like to thank everyone who helped in any way with food, cash donations, deliveries and all your hard work to make this a special day for a lot of people. The Meisenbach family had the senior citizen center rented out for their large group for dinner. The father of the whole family, John and Sherol Meisenbach, were even here this year. It would be nice if we could coax all of them to come back here to live. It sure would help our schools out if we had all their kids! Lane and Geraldine Liston were also invited to eat with them. Alvin and Joan Cowles, Richfield, were visiting at the home of Margean Schow. I think Alvin may have been gunning for a big elk while he was here too! Peggy Soren, Margean’s neighbor, was taken by ambulance last Tuesday with a nose bleed that didn’t want to stop. We hope she is okay now. Pat Sorensen also took a trip to the doctor after she

Her artistic talents were evident in her home and garden and her appreciation of artistic expression of all kinds. Her wonderful sense of humor, wisdom and generosity as a daughter, sister, aunt and friend touched and enriched the lives of all who knew her. Family and friends further a field treasured their many visits to Teasdale and the lively correspondence of an exceptional letter writer. Shelley was born in Toronto, Canada the daughter of Robert John Craig (predeceased) and Bernice Eloise Todd (predeceased). She was a loving sister to Darlene (Derek), Donald, Kathryn (predeceased) and Robert Bruce (Chris) and a cherished aunt to Erica and Adam. Shelley worked for many years as a registered nurse and health administrator in Salt Lake City and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Utah. In recognition of the loving care provided by the Gunnison Valley Hospice team the family welcomes donations in Shelley’s name to support continuing education for our local team.

SECOND MARRIAGES AND ESTATE PLANNING
Love knows no bounds. Many couples have experienced the extent and truth of this common saying. Often, older couples have to cope with adult children who cannot understand why mom or dad wants to remarry. By updating one’s estate plan, many concerns related to the marriage can be minimized. In second marriages later in life, there is often a desire to allow the estate of the first spouse to die to be available for a surviving spouse during his or her life. However, the deceased spouse often wants the estate to ultimately be distributed to his or her children upon the surviving spouse’s death. The best way to ensure that one’s assets are available for a surviving spouse but ultimately distributed to one’s children from a prior marriage is through the use of a trust. The trust can be created within a will (this is called a testamentary trust) or it can be created within a living trust (this is a trust created while one is alive). Significantly, the trust maker would set forth the terms of the trust according to his or her wishes, and would select the trustee (or trustees) to manage the trust. Upon the death of the trust maker, the trustee would then manage the trust assets subject to those specified wishes of the trust maker. For couples in a second marriage, it is often important to sign a marital agreement that states each spouse can dispose of his or her estate as desired. If such a document is not signed, a surviving spouse could legally attempt to “override” the estate plan of the deceased spouse. Proper estate planning in these circumstances can be a great blessing. It can relieve significant concerns of adult children when a parent remarries later in life, and it can bring peace of mind to the parent, knowing that he or she has succeeded in protecting the financial legacy of the children.

UPAXLP BICKNELL BOTTOMS CULINARY WATER COMPANY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER Tests Showed Coliform Bacteria in BBCWC Water Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for drinking water contaminants. We took 6 samples to test for the presence of coliform bacteria during November 2011. Three of our samples showed the presence of total coliform bacteria. The standard is that no more than 1 sample per month may do so. What should I do? • You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor. • People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPA=s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 (800) 426-4791. What does this mean? • This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. Coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems. • Usually, coliforms are a sign that there could be a problem with the system=s treatment or distribution system (pipes). Whenever we detect coliform bacteria in any sample, we do follow-up testing to see if other bacteria of greater concern, such as fecal coliform or E. coli, are present. We did not find any of these bacteria in our subsequent testing, and further testing shows that this problem has been resolved. What happened? What was done? Following the positive coliform results, the Bicknell Bottoms Culinary Water Company was flushed and chlorinated. Subsequent investigative samples were negative. For more information, please contact Riley Taylor at 6914037 or PO Box 266, Bicknell, UT 84715. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. This notice is being sent to you by Bicknell Bottoms Culinary Water Company, Water System ID#: 28043.

Comment Period Extended for Scoping an EIS on Glen Canyon Dam Operations The public’s opportunity to provide input to the preparation of a new Environmental Impact Statement related to the operation of Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River has been extended to January 31, 2012. The EIS concerns the adoption of a Long-Term Experimental and Management Plan for the Operation of Glen Canyon Dam and is being jointly developed by the Bureau of Reclamation and the National Park Service, both units of the Department of the Interior. To date, six open-house scoping meetings have been held in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah. Additionally, a national session was held via the internet. The previous comment deadline was December 30, 2011. A number of interested parties requested the extension to enable the public to provide more thorough comments plus accommodate the end-of-year holiday season. The long-term plan will address routine operations as well as “experimental” flows that provide additional scientific information about how to protect endangered fish and lessen the ef-
fects of dam operations on the downstream ecology and other resources. The plan will ensure that regulated flows on the Colorado River meet the goals of supplying hydroelectricity and water for communities, agriculture and industry at the same time they protect the ecologies of the Grand Canyon and Glen Canyon. Work on the new plan, known as the Long-Term Experimental and Management Plan, is the first comprehensive review of Glen Canyon Dam operations in 15 years. The purpose of the LTEMP is to use current and newly developed science to improve and protect resources of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Grand Canyon National Park while also complying with the Law of the River, the 1992 Grand Canyon Protection Act, the Endangered Species Act, and other applicable laws. The LTEMP process will determine the need for future modifications to Glen Canyon Dam operations, and whether to establish an Endangered Species Act Recovery Implementation Program for endangered fish species below Glen
Canyon Dam. Changes to dam operations and other actions taken by the Department of the Interior will be evaluated as “alternatives” in an Environmental Impact Statement. The EIS will document and evaluate impacts of the alternatives. More information on the EIS process may be found on the project web site: http://ltempeis.anl.gov. The public can submit comments by the following methods: • Website: http://ltempeis. anl.gov. (the preferred method) • Mail: Glen Canyon LTEMP EIS Scoping, Argonne National Laboratory, EVS/240, 9700 S. Cass Avenue, Argonne, IL 60439. Reclamation and the NPS will accept comments that are received or postmarked by Friday, January 31, 2012.

Japan’s THREE Mistakes!! Sunday, December 7th, 1941--Admiral Chester Nimitz was attending a concert in Washington D.C. He was paged and told there was a phone call for him. When he answered the phone, it was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the phone. He told Admiral Nimitz that he (Nimitz) would now be the Commander of the Pacific Fleet. Admiral Nimitz flew to Hawaii to assume command of the Pacific Fleet. He landed at Pearl Harbor on Christmas Eve, 1941. There was such a spirit of despair, dejection and defeat--you would have thought the Japanese had already won the war. On Christmas Day, 1941, Adm. Nimitz was given a boat tour of the destruction wrought on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. Big sunken battleships and navy vessels cluttered the waters every where you looked. As the tour boat returned to dock, the young helmsman of the boat asked, “Well Admiral, what do you think after seeing all this destruction?” Admiral Nimitz’s reply shocked everyone within the sound of his voice. Admiral Nimitz said, “The Japanese made three of the biggest mistakes an attack force could ever make or God was taking care of America. Which do you think it was?” Shocked and surprised, the young helmsman asked, “What do mean by saying the Japanese made the three biggest mistakes an attack force ever made?” Nimitz explained. : Mistake number one: the Japanese attacked on Sunday morning. Nine out of every ten crewmen of those ships were ashore on leave. If those same ships had been lured to sea and been sunk--we would have lost 38,000 men instead of 3,800. Mistake number two: when the Japanese saw all those battleships lined in a row, they got so carried away sinking those battleships, they never once bombed our dry docks opposite those ships. If they had destroyed our dry docks, we would have had to tow everyone of those ships to America to be repaired. As it is now, the ships are in shallow water and can be raised. One tug can pull them over to the dry docks, and we can have them repaired and at sea by the time we could have towed them to America. And I already have crews ashore anxious to man those ships. Mistake number three: every drop of fuel in the Pacific theater of war is in top of the ground storage tanks five miles away over that hill. One attack plane could have strafed those tanks and destroyed our fuel supply. That’s why I say the Japanese made three of the biggest mistakes an attack force could make or God was taking care of America. Admiral Nimitz was able to see a silver lining in a situation and circumstance where everyone else saw only despair and defeatism. President Roosevelt had chosen the right man for the right job. We desperately needed a leader that could see silver linings in the midst of the clouds of dejection, despair and defeat. On THAT December 7th...God was, indeed, watching over America!!
