Interesting Facts Photo by Steve Greenwood - www.saltlakephotos.com

1.

SALT LAKE CITY was originally named GREAT SALT LAKE CITY. Great was dropped from the name in 1868. The name was shortened, to differentiate the city from the Great Salt Lake.

2.

The Great Salt Lake covers 2,100 square miles, with an average depth of 13 feet. The deepest point is 34 feet. The Great Salt Lake is roughly 75 miles long and almost 35 miles wide, covering more than a million acres. While the Great Salt Lake covers only a fraction of the area Lake Bonneville did, it’s still the largest salt lake in the western hemisphere, second largest salt lake in the world, and the fourth largest terminal lake in the world. If you would like a perspective on the scope of GSL’s reach, just paddle out on a surf board. Stand-up surfing transforms the Great Salt Lake into Waikiki Beach.

Salt Lake’s culinary claim to fame is the fry sauce. It’s the sauce, comprising mostly of mayo and ketchup, for dipping French fries in. This sauce, until a few years ago, was not available outside of Utah. Most fast food chains now carry the product. How about a Pastrami Burger… only found in Utah. Utah has two beautiful mountain ranges, which have many high peaks. The average elevation of the tallest peaks in each of Utah’s counties is 11,222 feet, higher than the same average in any other state. Mountain ranges typically run north and south, rarely east and west. Utah’s Uinta mountain range runs east to west, and the Wasatch range runs north to south. The Wasatch mountain range is named after a Ute Indian name meaning “mountain pass” or “low place in a high mountain”. The Uinta mountain range is named after the Ute Indians.

Utah was acquired by the United States in 1848, in the treaty ending the Mexican War.

7.

Utah is the only state whose capital’s name is made of three words. All three words in Salt Lake City have four letters each.

8.

2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the adoption of Browning’s 1911 .45 caliber automatic pistol by the US Army. This pistol design remains in active military use with US special operations forces after a full century of service, and the Utah State Legislature’s 2011 session adopted a resolution to designate the Browning pistol as the Official Utah State Firearm. Utah is the only state in the union to have an official firearm. John M. Browning, a native of Ogden, is widely considered the world’s greatest firearms designer, and many of his gun designs remain popular around the globe today.

9.

World War II paratroopers from the 10th Mountain Regiment trained on the steep mountain slopes of Alta, in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Reed party became the first group to bring their wagons down Emigration Kanyon, now called Emigration Canyon. Their wagon road was followed by the Mormon pioneers in 1847. This established a route for other emigrants, teamsters, mail carriers, Pony Express, telegraph and others to follow. The Wagener Brewery, originally called the California, was built at the mouth of Emigration Canyon in 1865. It was the largest brewery in Utah. The Wegener Brewery was located out of Salt Lake City, and close to Fort Douglas. At this time, there were about twenty small breweries and distilleries, which were run by Mormons and non-Mormons. Salt Lake City leased a brewery built by Mormon patriarch Brigham Young. The site of the Wegener Brewery was about one hundred feet east of the exit from “This is the Place” monument. Spring water was available a few hundred feet, just up the canyon. A seven-thousand gallon reservoir six hundred feet north east of the brewery was filled by gravity from the spring water. This was piped into the brewery itself, where four delicious varieties of beer were produced. The brewery was remodeled in 1891, and a large pavilion and dance hall was built across the road, known as Wagener’s Grove. The brewery burned down in 1914. In order to give Hogle Zoo visitors a parking lot, the canyon road was moved and now the parking lot covers the location of the Wagener’s Brewery.

Utah covers 84,900 square miles of land, and is ranked the eleventh largest state in the United States.

East West Acupuncture Acupuncture has been used to effectively treat numerous health conditions for thousands of years. According to the World Health Organization, ¼ of the earth’s population receives acupuncture treatment on a continual basis. Both the WHO and the National Institutes of Health endorse acupuncture for many common problems including: • • • • • •

Allergies Anxiety Arthritis Asthma Addictions Carpal Tunnel Syndrome • Chronic Fatigue • Colitis • Common cold

• • • • • • • • • •

Constipation/Diarrhea Depression Digestive issues Dizziness Emotional issues Fatigue Fertility Fibromyalgia Headaches/Migraines Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

• Insomnia • Low back pain • Menopause • Menstrual irregularities • Osteoarthritis • Pain • PMS • Sciatica • Shoulder pain

• • • •

Sinusitis Smoking Stress Tennis/Golf elbow • Trigeminal neuralgia • Urinary tract infections • Weight loss

In our clinic, we focus on restoring balance and increasing vitality rather than on diseases. Yes, specific diseases are treated, but no two people receive the same treatment even though they may have very similar complaints. In Chinese medicine, there are many cases in which specific illnesses are treated before symptoms arise. This is the true essence of the medicine. Thomas Edison has said, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” About the author:In 2004 Regan Archibald Lac. Founder and Clinic Director of East West Acupuncture, earned his Master’s of Science in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine at the Traditional Chinese Medical College of Hawaii. He also spent three years apprenticing with the founder of the Traditional Japanese Acupucture Association, Dr. Chieko Maekawa PhD, DAc. In addition to the Salt Lake Clinic, Regan practices acupuncture at Riverwoods Neurology in Provo. In on of the few integrated medical clinics in the state, he works with Dr. Pam Vincent, Dr. Victoria Sucher and Monica Nardone. It is a unique clinical environment that blends a comprehensive holistic approach with western medicine. Regan is one of 13 acupunturists in the world who are certified in Seitai Shinpo. He is also the president of the Seitai Shinpo Acupucture Foundation. In his approach to healthcare, he focuses on restoring harmony to the body and helping patients heal themselves. Regan spends his free time with his daughter Zoe and his son Jonah. He also enjoys biking, snowboarding, yoga and capoeria.

Utah Solar & Alternative Energy My name is Joe Raycraft and I started USAE hoping to promote a brighter future for Utah and the intermountain west. To that end we offer custom designed photovoltaic and alternative energy systems for homes and business across Utah. I believe that changing the face of energy consumption is critical to the survival of our beautiful planet, and that promoting independence for all people through self generation is my duty as an American and as a father. I started this project about seven years ago by simply asking myself what it was I wanted to do with myself, which would harm as little as possible while addressing current American problems. It also was and is important to me to promote freedom and independence as much as I could. Photovoltaic electricity addresses all these issues. So I started USAE, and with your help we can make each other a little freer and wealthier over the long haul, thanks for your interest hope to talk with you soon. J.W. Raycraft (joey)

Did you know...? •

The weather? Don’t like it? Locals will tell you, “wait five minutes and it will change”. A 64-foot electronic weather tower was built on top of the Walker Center (circa, 1912), and gives a weather forecast based on the color of the lights. The key to the colors: blue, clear skies; flashing blue, cloudy skies; red, rain, flashing red, • snow. When it was built, the Walker Center was said to have been the “tallest building between the Missouri River and the Pacific

Got Butter?

Les Madeleines Patisserie does This small locally-owned bakery is the favorite to anyone who loves the joys of a homemade treat. You don’t have to be a serious foodie to know that the decadent carrot cake sandwich cookies, flaky croissants, cute little “buttons” (classic French macaroons - meringue cookies filled with buttercream) in many colors and flavors are all made with the highest quality ingredients by the hands of award-winning pastry chef Romina Rasmussen. Best known around the world and on the Food

Coast”. The “electronic weather tower” was taken down in the l980s by a mayor of Salt Lake City, who said that it did not meet with city ordinance. The tower was later returned to its perch on the Walker Center by another mayor of Salt Lake City, Rocky Anderson. However, it’s dependability as a predictable weather forecaster is in question. Simon Bamberger built the, GREAT SALT LAKE AND HOT SPRINGS RAILWAY, a suburban line built in 1891 between downtown Salt Lake City and Beck’s Hot Springs, four miles north of Salt Lake City. His vision

Network for her buttery addictive kouing aman pastry (“queen ah-MON”), Rasmussen brings a high-quality artisan touch to Utah with unique treats like homemade sodas in seasonal strawberry, that famous kouing aman, and the countless other creations that line Les Madeleines’ pastry cases every week. No short cuts or industrial products here – everything is made from scratch with all-natural ingredients. Buttercreams are made with the best butter and even the chewy pate de fruits (i.e. the best gummy candies in the world) are deliciously wholesome.

later built a railroad that inter-connected cities from Salt Lake City to Ogden, as well as a line to serve his coal mine at Coalville. In addition to transporting coal from his mine, Bamberger wanted to provide service for the local business traveler with passenger service from Salt Lake City to Ogden, as well as recreational travel for residents who sought recreation outside of the city. Bamberger purchased a swampy area just north of Farmington, drained it and built the Lagoon Resort. Lagoon remains today as one of the largest resort parks in the West.

back to a beloved memory – a favorite vacation, a romantic moment, a kitchen session with family. However Les Madeleines fans associate the taste, when all’s said and done – er, eaten – the verdict is always the same – DELICIOUS.

Some folks say that taking a bite of Les Madeleines’ butter toffee shortbread or dreamy panna cotta with tropical fruit transports them

Crones Hollow By: Shauna Brock

It’s a nondescript red brick building with a chain link fence, awnings over wide windows. But it’s the bright yellow sign out front that makes the passerby stop, stare, and wonder what is a “Crone’s Hollow”?! Given American Culture’s celebration of youth, why dedicate a store to a crone?! If you ask, you aren’t pagan. Step through the door at Crone’s Hollow and behind the counter there are gentle faces that greet you if not by name, at least familiarity. The store caters to local artists, giving the consumer a unique view of paganism, Utah style. On display shelves around the store, there are the usual ritual supplies, tarot cards, statuary, crowns, etc. The show room is decorated with trees and tucked into the molded branches are (stuffed) furry animals and faeries, all keeping an eye on the patrons. Through the curtains at the back of the store, there’s a ramp leading to a comfortable lounge. There’s coffee and tea available (on a donation system), the wi-fi is free and there are books and games available. On a white board, the week’s schedule is detailed. Interested in a ritual? There’s one scheduled. A class on shamanic drumming or spell candles? Also available. All for a cost, but with the majority of prices set at ten dollars, it’s affordable. Beyond the lounge is a ritual space, kept safe and energetic for each group that uses it. Finally, the pagans have their space - and the energy is wonderful. http://www.croneshollow.com/

Did you know...? • The Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City took 40 years to complete. The Mormon Temples in St. George, Manti and Logan, Utah were completed before the Salt Lake Temple. • The town of Beaver in Southern Utah is the birthplace of two very famous individuals of the past, Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of television and butch Cassidy, the notorious western outlaw. • Annual precipitation varies from less than five inches in Utah’s arid Great Salt Lake Desert to more than 60 inches in the northern mountain ranges. The average snowfall in the mountains near Salt Lake City is 500 inches. On the average, six inches of snow when melted yields one inch of water. • On May 10, 1869, the Union and Central Pacific Railroads joined their rails at Promontory Summit,

which is now Brigham City in Northern Utah. Golden Spike National Historic Site commemorates this incredible accomplishment of this nation’s first transcontinental railroad. A trip to the monument, on a Saturday, will provide you with the reenactment of this event with the original steam engines during the summer/fall months. • The nation’s most deserted stretch of the interstate highway begins where 70 enters the eastern edge of the state, from Grand Junction, Colorado, and ends where it intersects the 15, near Cove Fort. • Is Lake Bonneville Really Dead? A prehistoric pluvial lake covering most of Utah, and extending into Idaho and Nevada was Lake Bonneville. Lake Bonneville was named after a French born officer in the United States Army, Benjamin Louis Eulalie de Bonneville. He was also a fur trapper and an explorer in the American West. The lake, which

was formed about 32,000 years ago, was just about the size of Lake Michigan, but deeper. It was 1,000 feet deep in some places, and began drying up, through a combination of flooding and changes in climate. The Great Salt Lake is Bonneville’s largest remnant, occupying the deepest areas of the Bonneville basin. Also, Utah Lake and the Sevier Lake are a part of the original Lake Bonneville. The lake level fell very rapidly, about 350 feet in the first few weeks, 14,500 years ago, when the lake overflowed near red Rock Pass in Idaho, as the alluvial fans (natural dams) were washed away. Lake Bonneville’s currents and waves sculpted the unique topography of western Utah. Several of the old shore lines can be seen above Salt Lake City, along the Wasatch Front and elsewhere. Question is, why rename a lake because it has changed in size?

Did you know...? • OLD SALTAIR (Saltair I, 1893-1925), built under the direction of the LDS Church and intended as a wholesome alternative to the rowdier resorts springing up along the Great Salt Lake shoreline, became known as the “CONEY ISLAND OF THE WEST”. Architect Richard Kletting’s designs were intended to dazzle visitors and transport them to a world of “escape and pleasure”. The multilevel pavilion was Moorish-Victorian in ap-

28

pearance, with its crescent “arms” lined with bathhouses extended from each side. Saltair was built over the water on a platform supported by 2500 pine pilings, nearly a mile offshore and accessed via railroad trestle. The resort boasted various rides, shows, and dining options. For the roller coaster enthusiast, the main attraction was the Giant Racer, a massive roller coaster that sent riders screaming through drops and turns over the water. Orville and Wilbur Wright demonstrated their “heavier than air machine” at Saltair, making short, low flights above the pavilion. Fire destroyed the Saltair I pavilion in 1925. Of note, Richard Kletting would later design the State Capitol. Saltair II (1926-1970) was built larger and more colorful, with emphasis more on attractions and entertainment, including “Big Bands” performing in its massive ballroom. Saltair III (1982-present) was built conveniently at I-80 exit 104. Knowledge of the original site and its legacy faded from our collective memory. For the explorer, visible remnants still lie along the

overgrown trestle that leads to the pavilion site. Pilings marking the Giant Racer’s route also remain along with ceramic fragments from the “old Ship Café”. Remember the 1967 Beach Boy’s record album art? Photos show the band hanging out at a decaying Saltair II, balancing atop a tall collection of pilings that once served as a dock. With respect to the Great Salt Lake and Saltair, here two mindsets have always coexisted at odds with each other: the easy-going beach groove that Saltair attempted to harness, and the harsh desert environment that eventually did it in. • Bonneville Salt Flats, also a remnant of the ancient Lake Bonneville, is so flat that it aligns nearly perfectly with the shape of the earth. It is located just off the I-80, near the UtahNevada border. The flats stretch over 30,000 acres and is a fragile resource managed by the Bureau of Land Management. High speed auto/motorbike racers, commercial filmmakers and thousands of visitors visit this destination.

SEPS Learning Center Dr. AvaJane Pickering and her twin sister, the late Dr. EvaJean Pickering, established SEPS Learning Center in 1974. Now in its 37th year, the results speak for themselves. Some students who previously did not speak can speak. Others couldn’t read and now they know how to read. Students become friends as they learn individually and work in small groups. Activities are varied and adapted to fit individual learning styles. One student commented, “I like that you get to pick what class to do first and it’s not always the same every day.” Others commented about liking math, science, the computer lab, and the one-on-one attention given them by their teachers. Speaking of the award-winning computerized language programs, another student said, “Fast ForWord has improved my learning ability.” The SEPS approach allows students to overcome processing difficulties and learn more easily. According to SEPS Director, Dr. AvaJane Pickering, “Part of your brain works like a turtle and part of it works like a jet engine. We want all of your brain to work like a jet engine.” Students with various learning abilities, including those with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, average and gifted students benefit from SEPS learning programs. Equivalent to hours of intensive training, students and adults who come to SEPS normally make one or two years worth of progress in a matter of months with Fast ForWord and other educational processes offered specifically at SEPS.
