The outlook for Utah’s economy is improving. Unemployment is down and areas such as manufacturing, technology and energy are seeing growth. The housing market is still struggling, however, hurt by foreclosures and by that fact that a number of Utah homeowners are “underwater”that is, they owe more on their mortgage than the home is worth. According to a national survey, one of every 600 homes in our state faces foreclosure. You may have heard about a recent legal settlement between 49 state attorneys general and the federal government with the country’s five largest mortgage loan servicers: Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo. The deal requires the banks to reduce loans for about 1 million households at risk of foreclosure as a consequence of abusive mortgage practices. Among other things, the settlement includes: · The new servicing standards make foreclosure a last resort by requiring servicers to evaluate homeowners for other loss mitigation options first; · Banks are restricted from foreclosing while the homeowner is being considered for a loan modification; · The new standards also include procedures and timelines for reviewing loan modification applications and give homeowners the right to appeal denials; · Servicers will also be required to create a single point of contact for borrowers seeking information about their loans and maintain adequate staff to handle calls. This website has good information about the settlement as well as on loan modifications, refinancing and other sales: The settlement also provides money to the states to fund housing counselors, legal aid and other local programs. As always, I am very interested in hearing from you about this issue, or anything else you would like me to know. Jim Matheson, U.S. Representative, 2nd District of Utah

After meeting with State Party officials, Garfield County Democrats have announced a revised caucus schedule. The Garfield County Democratic Party will hold a County wide combined caucus at the Panguitch Senior Citizens Center, 75 North 50 West in Panguitch on Tuesday March 13, 2012. The democratic caucus meeting will begin at 7 pm and is open to all citizens of Garfield County, regardless of political affiliation. Participants will sign commitments that they will not participate in the formal caucus and convention process of other political parties during this election cycle. However, each citizen will be guaranteed the opportunity to express their vote according to their personal preference during the primary and general elections. Local caucuses make up the fundamental, grass-roots organization for political parties in the state. During the March 13th democratic caucus citizens will: 1) cast presidential preference ballots; 2) identify Democrats who are willing to serve as poll workers; 3), elect delegates to the County and State conventions who will decide which candidates represent the party, adopt a party platform and next year elect new party officers; and 4) elect precinct officers who will serve on the central committee. Local political and civic leaders have encouraged citizens to participate in the caucus because the people are best served by a broad representation of Utah citizens. Those who attend caucuses play a critical role in selecting candidates for public office. The county wide democratic caucus meeting will be followed by an open County Democratic Convention at 7:00 pm on Thursday April 12, 2012 at the Tropic Town Hall and the State Democratic Convention on April 21st at the Salt Palace. Additional information on the caucus, conventions or the Utah Democratic Party can be obtained by contacting Justin Daniels at jdaniels@

As the positions are advertised and filled, it is important to note all employees who are offered a position in the District will be hired back at the same

step in pay as they are currently working pending no changes in the salary pay scale for Para-educators. The rehiring will be based on the number of students with disabilities (SPED) and student to Para-educator ratios. The proposed hiring for the next school year will be as

Wayne County


Article & Photo By Adus Dorsey During March Madness in Richfield, Wayne scored a spectacular 3rd place win against Rich in the State finals on Saturday, March 3rd in front of a capacity crowd at the Sevier Valley Center (SVC). As a re-cap, on Wednesday afternoon February 29th, Wayne played Whitehorse at 4:00 p.m. in what would eventually be the Wayne Boy Badgers focused drive for the coveted State 1A championship. It was and a battle for the ball, with the Wayne Badgers winning 66 – 60. Ty Reese, Zack Taylor, Taylor Albrecht, Drayston Nelson, and the rest of the Badgers team scored so many points each, that after a while it was like counting sheep. The crowd totally lost count of the score which made for a good and much needed peaceful night’s sleep in Wayne County. On Thursday afternoon, the Wayne Boy Badgers arrived early at the SVC and watched Bryce Valley brutally battle it out with Duchene. Bryce Valley breezed to a 47 – 41 win. In the second game of the 1A tournament the Wayne Badgers faced Liahona which proved to be optimal for the Badgers as they had no problem putting on a good show for parents and the Wayne fans. It was first live TV broadcast and an impressive 70 – 57 Wayne win. After the Wayne 70 – 57 win against Liahona, many Badger fans that had made the drive to Richfield Thursday afternoon, were seasonally surprised with near white-out snow conditions as they left the SVC that night. Even tougher driving conditions were waiting for them on Highway 24 up and over Fish Lake Mountain. Surely the inclement weather made for a late night, much to be talked about, slow and fun filled family drive back to Wayne County. Friday afternoon, March 2nd, Wayne school bus driver Bart Albrecht safely pulled up to the participant entrance at the SVC and off-loaded the Wayne Badgers Basketball team, the truly talented Wayne Coaches, and the Wayne High Cheerleaders, the true “Queens” of school spirit. In what seemed to be an excited Wayne-weighted capacity crowd, the Wayne County fans sat in anticipation and watched as Layton Christian stomped Rich in a lopsided 70 – 48 basketball massacre.

When the Badgers fin a l l y took the f l o o r Friday night, t h e r e seemed to be somet h i n g sorely missing and uncharacteristic of the Badger’s previous performance and play. Only just the night before, the Bryce Valley boys had narrowly beat Monticello 47 – 41, and afterwards the Wayne Badgers had commandingly shown their dominance by showing up Liahona in a 70 – 57 victory. The overflowing Wayne County Fans at the SVC, snacking on pretzels the size of Las Vegas, sat stunned as Bryce Valley pushed the Wayne vs. Bryce Valley score higher than the $2.00 price of a bottle of water at the SVC in the first quarter of play. The second quarter of play wasn’t much different. Stomachs had to be uncomfortably churning from the oversized pretzels and the unexpected low level of play by the Wayne High Badgers. Concern and confusion seemed to overly consume and overwhelm the Wayne County bench and crowd, as they sat squirming in their seats. Even at half-time the Wayne High Cheerleaders and “Queens” of school spirit walked off the court unsatisfied with their half -time dance performance. Some of the more vocal Wayne High cheerleaders even made a desperate personal plea that their videoed half-time attempt at perfection not be posted on Americas Funniest Videos (AFV). *(Although in my personal observation the Wayne High Cheerleaders half – time performance was, and always is, as good as it gets, and certainly worthy of mention). Even after a dismal 50 – 40 defeat, the Badger Boys walked off the court Friday night with their heads held high, giving us all pause to consider what sportsmanship and fair play is all about. Unlike the snowy Thursday night drive from Richfield to Wayne County, Friday night’s Wayne County convoy and home bound fans made the 65 mile trip in their cars and monster trucks a much different event. The night skies and the roadway were clear and deer free. As was expected, most of the Wayne County bound vehicles began to back up on the up hill climb of the Glenwood dug way. A long line of headlights (that could be probably seen from outer space) also backed up through and into the Sand Ledges. Near Windy Ridge and the Koosharem reservoir, drivers were warming up their tires and insistently searching for a good position for the up-coming passing zone near the Koosharem short

cut. At the Piute County line, it was the 4 cylinder econo-cars against all the rest. Above the rest stop, the four-lane highway opened up and became pedal to metal, full on, NASCAR style racing, and two cars deep in each lane. Fords, Chevy’s and other American made cars and trucks took the lead, leaving many gas saving model cars lingering in the distant darkness. By the time the lights of Loa came into focus it was all over and the front-runners were already home, in their PJ’s and ready for bed. Saturday afternoon the Badgers team arrived at the back door of the SVC on the Wayne school bus driven by Bart Albrecht. Surely Bart and Coach Kade Morrell had provided the much appreciated and needed motivation the team had come to expect throughout the Basketball season. At 3:00 p.m. March 3rd, at the SVC, for the 3rd place position in the State 1A basketball tournament, the Wayne Badgers and their un-wavering Wayne County fans faced off against the rowdy Rich boys basketball team and their even rowdier fans. As the time clock started ticking away the seconds of the Wayne vs. Rich game, it was evident that the Wayne Boy Badgers clearly had winning in their sights. Ty Reese, the three-point terminator, was back; sinking his long shots into the basket like the hoop was the size of backyard swimming pool. Zack Taylor made it clear he was going to control the ball every chance he got, and he did. Taylor Albrecht also showed his superior stuff and made his court presence known. Austin Davis, recovering from an earlier injury, played like he had received an injection of adrenalin and fought and enforced a demanding dominance in the paint. Brock Taylor, son of the Sheriff and Zumba Queen Tanya Taylor, raced around the court sinking shots as if he was running from the law. Upcoming sports star Mark Simmons is, and certainly will be, someone to contend with in future Wayne High sports competition. Drayston Nelson, the prized product of Darren and Tawni Nelson, proved his worth and is a fine example of what Wayne County youth are capable of. There should be no doubt that Coaches Morrell, Stevens, and Peterson are as puffed up like proud fathers over the performance of the Wayne Boys Badgers 2012 team. They are fine examples of all things humanly possible. For the 3rd place win against Rich, Wayne clearly controlled the game and won 56 – 49. It is our opportunity and community obligation to consistently support our Wayne County youth in all that that they do, because someday they will be our decision makers. Congratulations to all members of the Wayne Boys 2012 Basketball team, coaches and all Wayne High students, parents, and fans. Go Badgers!

By Cynthia Kimball Not long ago I sat next to a friend in church. She was expecting three others. And so, since we were sitting on one half of the pew and the other side was taken I asked, “Do you think there will be enough room?” “I don’t take up that much room,” she laughed yet I could tell she was obviously offended. “I am so sorry, Rachel*, I didn’t mean that. And besides, you are anything but that!” But Rachel’s comment got me thinking how often times we are our own worst critic. You know, where you may play a negative tape of past mistakes, comments or labels over and over and over again in your mind. But you can stop this cycle of negative self-talk. You can begin by finding and replacing words and thoughts. For instance, instead of, “I’m a mess,” replace with, “I’m organized,” even if you’re not. Or take this column’s title. Can you see how construction is so much better than


destruction? By finding and replacing words and thoughts of what you are or what you will become you gain continued knowledge, light and truth. You will become more refined and you will grow since this is a growing process. Another time one woman whispered to me, “She’s kooky,” about another woman even though I hadn’t yet gotten to know this supposedly “kooky” woman. But, it’s naturally easy to see improvements in other people, right? Look, if you do decide someone is “kooky,” like this one woman did, make a list of the things that you complain about to other people (even “kooky”) and then purposely work to develop to improve (high) those qualities in yourself. For example, if you think someone’s rude work to make sure you’re not. If you think someone’s greedy, don’t be. And if you think someone’s dishonest, make sure you’re not and so on and so forth. Practice and emulate and

you will become refined so when there are antithesis that pop up you will just be more skilled. Keep in mind that you should never punish the person you are judging who is growing and forming, for instance the “kooky” or “rude” or “greedy” ones’, because it not only reduces learning, but takes you further away from knowledge, light and truth. So the next time you want to destruct yourself or others with negative words or thoughts work to construct and replace them instead with positive ones’. As you do, you will be that much closer to arriving at who you were destined to be. *Name change Cynthia Kimball is a professional speaker and trainer through her company Every1Counts, LLC, and a doctoral student in Workforce Education Leadership.

tHe lAuGhiNg pOiNt!! Parking Space Sign Language

After driving up and down several lanes, I finally found a parking spot at the shopping mall. I noticed another man driving very slowly in the same direction, and, since he was closer, I gave him the “Are you going to park there?” look. His responding gestures were very complicated. F i r s t he shook his head. Next he pointed at me, then at the parking space and then at himself, his watch and the mall. Finishing off, he frowned, raised his palms upward and shrugged. Once I parked, I walked over to the driver to make sure he didn’t want the space. “You must be single,” he replied. “If you were married, you would’ve known that was the universal sign for ‘Go ahead and take the spot. I’m waiting for my wife.’”

Checking Out

I was checking out at a busy supermarket and the cashier was having problems. The register ran out of paper, the scanner malfunctioned, and then the cashier spilled a handful of coins. When she totaled my order, it came to exactly $22. Trying to soothe her nerves, I said, “That’s a nice round figure.” Still frazzled, she glared at me and said, “You’re no bean pole yourself!”

Mexican Restaurant

A Mexican restaurant I pulled up to looked great. Only one problem - it wasn’t open. So I jotted down the name for another day. Just then, a man came out of the restaurant and took a peek at what I’d written. “That’s not the name of the restaurant,” he said, pointing to the sign over the door. “That’s Spanish for ‘Closed on Mondays.’”



The use of a revocable trust (sometimes referred to as a “living trust” or “family trust”) to plan one’s estate has become very popular. Despite the popularity of the revocable trust, revocable trusts are not without their potential problems. First, it is important to understand that there is no definitive answer as to whether a trust is necessary. Another estate planner explained that asking whether a revocable trust is good or bad is like asking whether a wrench is good or bad. It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. A trust is just an estate plan-

ing tool. Whether it is good or bad depends on your needs and desires. Although there are many factors to consider in determining whether a revocable trust is right for you, here are a few of the more significant factors: 1. Avoiding Probate. It is true that a properly funded trust avoids probate. If the goal of the client is to avoid probate, it is critical that the trust be properly funded. To “properly fund” a trust, title to all assets and beneficiary designations for insurance policies and retirement accounts must be reviewed. A properly funded trust avoids probate because the owner of the assets (generally termed the trustor, settlor, grantor or trustmaker in the trust document) conveys ownership from him or herself (in his or her individual capacity) to him or herself as trustee of his or her trust. Probate

is avoided because for “probate purposes” the deceased person does not own assets but rather the trustee of the trust owns the assets. It is critical to understand that a revocable trust only avoids probate if the assets have been properly transferred to the trust. 2. Out of State Property. A revocable trust is especially useful if you own real estate in another state. Real estate in another state generally requires a probate proceeding in that state. If you live in one state but own real estate in another state, your beneficiaries may be required to commence multiple probate proceedings. This situation can be avoided through the use of a revocable trust. 3. Avoiding Court Appointed Conservatorship. A properly drafted trust should provide for the management of trust assets in the event the person contributing the property to the trust becomes incapacitated. This would avoid the need for a court appointed conservator for financial

DOG FOOD SPECIAL! matters. In conclusion, a revocable trust is an important estate planning tool. Depending on your individual situation and desires, you may decide to use a revocable trust as your principal estate planning tool. As in all estate planning decisions, being educated about your choices is key in deciding whether a revocable trust is right for you. Jeffery J.

BRYCE VALLEY AREA NEWS by Vicki D. Syrett 679-8687 or We want Steve and Machele Pollock to know that everyone sends their prayers and love with them as they travel to Idaho for special treatment to help Steve fight his Pancreatic cancer. We wish them the best and hope they have a safe and successful journey. They will be gone for ten days. The 1A State Tournament saw a lot of Alumni in the stands supporting the Bryce Valley Mustangs. It was great. Clint Mecham and David Jensen were two that were reported on but we know there were many more. Those of us who for one reason or another could not travel enjoyed the broadcast over television’s St. George station. It was great and you could see so well because the cameras kept up with the players. Many also watched it on on their computers. What an exciting event it was. We are so proud of the Mustangs and their team effort as they played basketball. They were wonderful and did a great job of keeping the fans excited. Wonderful ballgame. The parade going through town with sirens and horns blaring was blocks long. Literally blocks. Southern Utah’s String Festival was held in Cedar City this past week and many from Garfield County participated in the event. The stringed instrument students could go perform a solo, group, or whatever they preferred. They were judged and got a rating with special help on how to improve. Megan Cottam of Cannonville had quite a few of her students participate and Amanda Clarke of Cedar City and the wife of Pace Clarke, also had students that were involved. Many from this area that were part of the festival were Shaine and Anne Anderson’s children, Ryan and Tammy Houston had two children involved.

Syrett ELEMENTARY The SUU Percussion Artists brought an assembly to the Elementary School this past week. They played all kinds of percussion istruments such as traditional drums, jugs, saw horses, etc. and it was so fun to watch and listen to. The 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th were then taken to another group and were allowed to play and African drum called the BJumbe. They worked on their rhythm and had a fun time taking their turn. This assembly was done in both Bryce Valley and Panguitch schools. Friday and anonymous donor gave Krispee Kreme Donuts to the elementary students who loved them. They had a fire drill and then came in and ate the delicious donuts. Thanks to the donors, it was great!! There was another assembly last week called the “me@mybest” given for both the Elementary and the High School students. It was fascinating. They had three projectors set up just like IMAX on the screen. It was full of positive messages for the students about being yourself, anti-bullying, etc. They were told that what they do can make a difference. The films was full of known stars, bands, regular people, a kid who sold advertising space on his head to raise money for bone marrow donors, lady who lost her home to a fire, many service people. There was one lady who started a drive for Police Officers to carry stuffed animals in their cars for the children they had to help. The people from Portland, Oregon passed on the message of kindness to animals, others they are around and to give service where they could help out. “You are your best when you are kind and feel dood about yourself.” Thursday and Friday will be Parent-Teacher conferences at the elementary. Student who won the Citizenship and Academic award for the week of Feb. 27th are: Kindergarten: Alex Miller First Grade: Oaklee Williams Third Grade: Kayli Larsen Fourth Grade: Alex Eagan Fifth Grade: Colby Wiseman Sixth Grade: Easton Syrett BANTAM WRESTLING: Eighty kids from Bryce Valley, Panguitch and Escalante all participated in the 1st every tournament held at Bryce Valley for the kids pre-school through eigth grade.

wrestlers. BOYS BASKETBALL: SECOND PLACE STATE Well boys you did an excellent job for yourself and the fans.

FYI PANGUITCH By: Mack Oetting ~ E-mail: mackoetting How about that storm last week, snow at last? Thursday was really something, when I looked out the window at about 9:00 it was a white out. The only thing was that the wind was blowing so hard, that you couldn’t tell if it was snowing or if the wind was blowing the snow that was already there. I know that there wasn’t any snow on the roofs of the houses in my area. Hopefully much of it ended up on the mountain. The ball seasons are over and it is March and there is plenty going on. March the 16th is the day Panguitch is celebrating its Birthday. This is a Friday. Meet at the Social Hall at 7:00 for a great program, refreshments and super door prizes. The first settlement was on March 16 and the second settlement was on the 18th or 19th. According to history, the Pioneers settled on the outside of town on the 18th and then came on in to Panguitch the 19th , that is why the second settlement is described as the 18th or 19th of March. The theme this year is “Lucky Us, We live in Panguitch”. Stop by the city office and fill out a paper stating why you are “lucky” to live in Panguitch. The City sponsors the event, meaning they are paying the expenses and Pat Oetting, Claudia Crump and Shawn Caine are chairing the party. Come see you tax dollar in action!!!! Speaking of $$$$’s the East Egg Hunt jars are out and in place at the city businesses. The Easter Egg Hunt will be early this year and will be held on April the 6th a Friday at 10:00 am at the City Park. The Easter Egg Hunt Jars are for your donations. All the money collected in the jars goes in plastic eggs that the Easter Bunny brings. The Lions Club and the City sponsor’s the Easter Egg Hunt. The prizes and the candy are complements of our two sponsors. Thanks for Joes Main Street market for their support. In addition to the Oetting family, Sierra Allen and Ciainna Swartzmiller are willing volunteers for most events that Pat is involved in. Also on March 17th The Relief Society celebrates its birthday, 170 years of “Charity Never Faileth”. Their Birthday Party is on the 14th at the Stake Center. This is a women’s thing, all are invited. That’s a Wednesday and it starts at

6:00 pm. Dinner and program. During March at the High School, plenty of things going on, starting with Debate this week, region 20 at Piute on the 7th and 8th and State the following week on the 15th at DSC in St. George. Drama Region will be held in Wayne on the 23rd. FCCLA State will be held in Layton on the 20th. The Constitution Bowl will be held at PHS on the 14th and will start at 11:am ; BV, Piute, Valley and a number of schools throughout the state are also coming. As I stated before, all of the students are learning about the Constitution and the Amendments, this is a great learning tool. Don’t forget the Republican Caucus meetings in Panguitch will be held on the 15th. Panguitch.1 at the Triple C Arena and Panguitch 2 will be held at the Elementary School. Haven’t heard from the Democrats about their Caucus, those that are interested might try calling Brian Bremner at (676-8211) I think he is their representative. On the news the other night the number of Utah voters registered is: 150,000 Democrats and 800,000 Republicans and 1 million uncommitted voters. There is an Independent party, but if you sign up as an Independent you can only vote for someone in their party. As far as I know the only one that is up for election is Del LeFever for County Commissioner in Escalante. Commissioners Pollock and LeFever are in DC meeting with Senator Orin Hatch, concerning the School Trust Lands money, hopefully they will be successful. On Saturday the cast from the Quilt Walk Play went down to Alton to film a segment of the men walking on their quilts. The snow there was about 4’ deep and impossible to walk in. We knelt on the one of the quilt to pray, just like the pioneers did and low and behold, we didn’t sink in. This filming is a lot of work, because they keep shooting the scenes over again till we got it right. We walked quite a ways on the quilts and actually we got better and faster as we went. Then we came back, hauling bags of flour, only one of the bags had flour in it and it weighed 75 lbs. Ben McEwen was the lucky one that got to haul the flour and he did it the whole way,

what a guy! Denise Johnson’s ranch is where the filming took place, we used a team of the Johnson’s horses in the filming that depicted the quilt walkers when they start out from Panguitch to Parowan and the team actually got stuck in the snow. (Just like in 1864) The Johnson’s hobby is going to horse wagon events throughout the State. They were at the Cove Fort days last summer with their wagon and many of our senior citizen’s rode on it. The Travel Council is footing the bill for this filming and will do another one on Panguitch Lake fishing later in the year We have a couple of anniversaries this week. The Oreo cookie is 100 years old and still going strong. Fifty years ago Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in an NBA game, against the New York Knicks, while playing for the Philadelphia Warriors. The final score was 169 to 147. Wilt who was a terrible free throw shooter made 28 out of 32 that night. I saw Wilt play when he was with the Lakers and he just dominated the games, they even changed the dimensions in the key, because no one could stop him from scoring. During his stint with the Lakers, the team set a record of 33 wins in a row that was in the 1961-62 season, Wilt’s scoring average was 50.4 and averaged 25.7 rebounds a game. He won 4 MVP and two NBA Titles. He was by far the greatest basketball player I ever saw. Do you feel that you are starting to wake up earlier and going to sleep earlier, well it is not your imagination, it’s that time of the year that you spring a head. I wish that we would stay on daylight savings time year around. It will be this Sunday the 11th, so if you don’t want to be late for church, set your clock ahead. Its March madness time, sit back and enjoy it. Mack O.

Some people have problems spending too much time online. But there are also those who read too much, spend too much time in front of the television or play video games too often. While it might seem presumptuous to label people who fit into any of these categories as addicts, they may well be. Because we live in such a fast-paced world, people are finding it hard to slow down, relax and enjoy down time; they are easily bored without constant stimulation through exposure to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email, blogs or texting. While the need to be “connected” using the most up-to-date electronic gadget has never been more widespread, it may also be affecting our ability to effectively communicate in person or without the use of emoticons or texting lingo. To see if you or someone you know is addicted to technology, here are a few questions from a quiz compiled by to see how often you reply “yes.” Their designations of describing a level of ad-


The Wayne School Board held its February Board Meeting at Hanksville Elementary. This has been the tradition for many years for the February Board Meeting. Mrs. Corri Robinson began the meeting with the Hanksville Spotlight on schools. Mrs. Robinson talked about the strengths of the faculty and staff, and their ability to work well together. She had high praise for everyone who works at the school, and made particular mention of Mrs. Jan Hunt and her efforts with the Gold Medal Schools Program. The staff and students are working hard to reach their Gold Medal Goals, with a focus on violence and injury prevention this year. There was a lively discussion from citizens about the problems of decreased enrollment at Hanksville Elementary. This is a serious problem, because enrollment figures have steadily declined district wide since the beginning of the year. There are concerns about funding available to continue student services at their present levels. Parents wondered about options of sending or not sending the sixth grade students to the Middle School. They dis-

cussed the idea that teacher or paraprofessional time may be cut for next year. The Superintendent and Board expressed concern as well, but reported that no firm decisions about funding could be made until after the legislature finishes its work. The Superintendent reported on the problems with the septic tank and water supply at the High School forcing its closure on February 9th and 10th. There was possible contamination of the drinking water flowing into the school. The decision was made to send students home until it could be positively determined that the drinking water was safe. The health department declared the water safe on Saturday, so school resumed on Monday February 13. High School Students will make up the Minimum day missed on Wednesday, April 4, the first half day of Spring Vacation. Middle School students and Elementary students do not need to makeup that school day!! Superintendent Torgerson discussed some followup and information items. These included discussions on: • Current legislative issues

effecting education budgets and spending. • Review of the 2012-2013-school calendar • Discussion on a new bus purchase • Discussion on a Risk Management Policy to try to reduce liability issues with non-school related activities. • A review of the Mid-year DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of • Basic Early Literacy Skills) that is required by the state. Business items included: • Approval of the Annual Report to Patrons. This will be published on the district web site, and we encourage all patrons to click on the site and examine the report. • There was discussion on the second reading of Personnel Policies “D.” There were some concerns with policy DAD and the Superintendent and Board felt some clarification was needed in regards to pupil transportation. • A meeting was set to discuss personnel and scheduling with school administrators, and the board scheduled a second visit to Loa Elementary. An executive session was held to discuss personnel.


Are You Addicted to Technology?

diction are tied to the use of cigarettes and other drugs. For example, answering yes to 50 percent of the questions qualifies a person as a “chain smoker” or someone who recognizes he or she is a little too plugged in and is trying to quit. The person is at a point where technology addictions are starting to ruin social interactions. Someone responding yes to 60 to 70 percent is considered a “pothead” or a person who is addicted but has no desire to quit. Here are some of the 50 questions from the quiz: 1. Do you eat most of your meals while at the computer or in front of the television? 2. Do you freak out if you’re in a car and there’s no GPS? 3. Have you ever changed vacation plans based on WiFi availability? 4. Are there more than two portable electronic devices within reach right now? 5. Do you buy things online that you could easily drive across town to get in person? 6. Are you a member of

any sort of online “guild?” 7. Do you bring your smartphone to church with you? 8. Do you spend more time on Facebook than you do in the presence of actual people? 9. Do you have three or more active social media accounts? 10. Do you have more than five tabs open in your browser right now? 11. Do you tweet or read blogs while watching movies at home? 12. Do you put your phone on vibrate at the movie theater so you can text a message if needed? 13. When you sit down in a restaurant, airport or meeting room, do you check to see if there is an outlet nearby, just in case? 14. Can you type text messages faster than you can handwrite the same words? 15. Are there more computers and smartphones in your home than people who live there? According to WebMD, the constant interruptions to our day due to technology are robbing us of needed rest for our bodies and our

mental state of well being. The two most common side effects of being over-connected are headaches and insomnia. In addition, if the need to be “in touch” puts us on edge, the stress and anxiety can also lead to a heart attack. Accessing the world through technology is a reality and part of living in today’s world. It is amazing to find answers to questions

almost immediately and know that you can reach loved ones almost anytime, anywhere. These are positive aspects of technology. However, it is important to know what defines a healthy dose of technology versus too much. Perhaps it’s time to take stock of your own dependency or addiction to technology and see where changes may need to be made.

NIU PRESENTATION Phillip Clingo, Owner of Signature Log Furniture, Lyman Utah, applied for and received the Rural Fast Track Grant in March 2010 to expand his business. He has worked very hard to achieve his goal in obtaining a new building in Lyman to expand his business to greater heights with funding assistance through this grant. Clingo was visited by Les Prall from Utah’s Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Rural Development, Wayne County Commissioner, Robert G. Williams and Michelle Coleman, Director of Wayne County Economic Development on February 8, 2012 to finalize the inspection of Clingo’s new

facility. Clingo states, I relocated my family to central Utah in 2006 so I could build my business in an area I enjoy. I wanted to be close to forests of some of the most beautiful aspen trees in the world so I could gather only the most artistic logs. Signature Log Furniture has now developed a great reputation with our customers by personally handcrafting each and every piece of furniture to maintain the artistic beauty and rustic style to the very wood we use. We build with our signature look and rugged, long lasting strength. Most of our customers return year after year, and we want to thank them for their contin-

ual support. Recently our company has gone to new heights advancing online, and shipping nationwide. With ongoing hard work, and loyal customer service, our opportunities to grow are coming to fruition. The rural development grant will help us expand and keep our overhead low. We currently have three fulltime employee’s including myself, and hope to hire another full-time person in the near future. Stop in and see our work and view our photo gallery at 234 West SR 24 Lyman Utah. Thanks for letting us be a part of such a wonderful community! Check out our furniture gallery at .

You are invited to join us for a lively and fun presentation lead by the Traveling Team of College Students from Northland International University (NIU). This energetic team of 5 young people are currently traveling the Mountain West introducing our communities to Northland International University (located in Dunbar, Wisconsin near Green Bay). NIU is a biblically focused University with much to offer to students seeking an excellent education in a Christian environment. Come join us for their presentation on Tuesday evening, March 13th at 6:30 PM at the Brannon’s home in Tropic. For directions and more details, contact Rob at: 435-720-3808 or email us at:


As the 4-H Volunteer’s secretary I do a lot, though at the moment we are campaigning or re-voting for a new presidency. I have enjoy my time in the club and would love to do more for our community. In the 4-H pledge you pledge your Head, Heart, Hands, and Health, but what does this mean? We can start from the beginning. Our Head, the first of the four H’s, pledging to keep our head clean and morally straight to do our best in what we do. Heart, the second H of the four H’s, I love my club and my community and would love to help make the society I live in a better place. Putting forth the effort is just step one. Hands the third H of the four H’s, we pledge to use our hands for greater services. Our club is known as the “Volunteers”, we do services for our community to help make it a better place. Our Health, the fourth and final

H of the four H’, we pledge to use our health for the better. “For our club, our community, our country, and our world.” We repeat this pledge at every meeting along with the Pledge of Elegance. Through our club we help the people we come in contact with, though some may not realize it, but we are greatly appreciated for all the things we do. There are many 4-H groups in Panguitch and each one is very special and very important. As secretary I vow to take the time to do my best and help out. Democracy Day was a fun activity and I would also like to thank Laura Adams for being such an amazing 4-H leader. She has sacrificed so much time and money for our club, she helps us out and literally holds our club together. I repeat this again but I have greatly enjoyed the time my time as a 4-H volunteer. I have also enjoyed the time spending, and getting to

know each and every one of the other members in the club. Though I am like professor Snape from the famous “Harry Potter” series, I have been after the position as the president of this club since I have become a member. We have had amazing idea’s for fundraisers and we should put those into play. We have the “Disco Inferno” teen retreat coming up in Beaver. Though I have only gone once before, I recommend going, it was a very fun and exciting and I had the fun of my life, I met many new people and they are now good friends of mine. Thank you for your time and support. ~ Austin Jack
