Four longtime friends were hiking in the hills of western Hemet last month as they often did, doing what young boys do - fearlessly hurtling themselves over boulders and chucking rocks as far as they could throw them. Wednesday, March 3, 2010 - Vernal Express One, Nick DiCarlo, a slender, adventurous 12-year-old and avid bicycle rider with a ducktail, peered into a crevice and saw an upside-down bottle covered by pebbles. He dusted aside the debris and pulled out a 4-inch-high container with a short neck and a cork plugging the top. Phil Rico, father of two of the boys who was along for the hike behind Tahquitz High School, had jokingly wondered whether there could be a message in the bottle -- too much of a cliché to be The Crawford family, from Vernal, are true, of course, but what would it hurt to look? traveling to Hemet to retrieve the bottle. But Nick, more interested in breaking the bottle than studying it, was preparing to dash it upon the rocks below. “It makes a (William Wilson Lewis III/The Press-Enterprise)

Silver bullets - financial calamity
The economy and its affect on Utah Wednesday, March 3,By2010 Vernal Express Mary B- ernard
happen to be one who has lost their job. Matthews began his long career by earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees from BYU and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Colorado. He has advised presidents and governors. If anyone can make sense of the jumble that is American economics today, its Dr. Matthews. Using a recent Wells Fargo US Economic Forecast he attempted to provide a partial picture of the state of the economy. “The real gross domestic product (GDP) figures offer a proxy for the overall health of the economy,” says Matthews. “Looking at the first quarter of 2009, GDP was in negative territory minus-6.4 percent, but by the forth quarter GDP was a positive 5.7.” To Matthews, the figures say we have cautiously turned the corner. “Cautiously yes, because the numbers for real final sales and net inventory reduction show a slowing in sales,” he says, “which
Kelly Matthews speaking on Wednesday at the 7th Annual Diversified Agriculture Conference in Vernal. A 36-year veteran economist for First Security and Wells Fargo Banks, Matthews explained the future of Utah’s economy. (Mary Bernard/Vernal Express)
If you think back a year ago, the stock market hit bottom and we’ve been trying to get up from that low point ever since. “The silver bullet has not been identified yet to fully repair the economy,” says Kelly Matthews on Wednesday. “But when you face a financial calamity, stave it off, and survive, well that’s pretty good.” Matthews, keynote speaker at the 7th Annual Diversified Agriculture Conference in Vernal, knows economics. He’s a 36-year veteran economist for First Security and Wells Fargo Banks. Matthew’s tough words were greeted with chagrin by the audience filled with elected officials and agricultural professionals from across the state. “Since March 6, 2009 we’ve had a 75 percent bounce back from a huge decline in market value,” he continued. Even so, it doesn’t really reflect the underlying economic urgency of the situation – back then or now. Especially if you

Looking forward to a future by Mary Bernard Express Writer
The following is part four of a series of personal accounts provided by recovering addicts who have benefited from Uintah County’s Meth-No-More Program.
Addicts’ lives are ruled by their addiction, so too, are the lives of their families. When Joey’s (not her real name) dad and mom brought her to Meth-No-More, they were worn out emotionally and financially. To them, no amount of money could replace the daughter they wanted healed. “Your dad was a broken man when he brought you here,” says Kit Yack, program coordinator.
“He said it was Meth-No-More or the state hospital in Provo.” Joey, sober for about a year, shows little trace of the grasp that alcohol addiction once held on her. “Meth-No-More has been a miracle for me,” Joey says. “When my parents brought me in I was drunk. I’d been drunk for three days after losing my job, my husband, and my son.” She adds “only death was going to stop me from drinking” Joey was at rock bottom when she met Yack. “I did not see myself quitting,” confesses Joey. “Kit helped me build my ‘recipe,’ that’s what I call my recovery options.” Her three-day binge culminated a long sad path ending

tronics and security systems will make the new facility easier to manage, and safer for prisoners and employees. “The new facility will give us a better view of the inmates, give officers more control over the environment and allow officers to be more proactive in preventing problems,” says jailer Irene Brown. email@example.com
Planning camping trips and/or recreating in Utah State Parks this summer may be more challenging for some. Campers must create an online profile before reserving a camp site, and those who camp on a first come, first served basis will be required to complete information at the campground that will be used to create a profile in the system. Beginning this spring, the Utah State Parks Reservation Office has two new major policies affecting customers planning to make reservations for camping, pavilions or boat slips.

Reservations must be made online or over the phone, and each reservation for each site includes an $8 registration fee. “In the past people have been able to come down to the office and pay with cash or check,” says Utah State Parks Public Affairs Specialist Hollie Brown. “We did a way with the walk in reservations several years ago.” Campers are no longer able to drive to their campground of choice and reserve a spot for the coming weekend with a camp host.

Second, all reservation customers are asked to set up a Utah State Parks camper profile by visiting www.stateparks.gov. According to Brown, the profiles provide faster and better service for future reservations, as well as providing information for Utah State Parks in the event of an emergency. “Everyone needs to be in our system from now on,” says Brown. “You can set up an account when you get to the park.” Camp hosts will be allowed to accept cash and checks at the campground for first come, first served sites. firstname.lastname@example.org

Before Nick could heave it, however, Rico cried out: “Wait -- there’s a note in there.” The note, on 5-by-7-inch paper now brittle, was neatly rolled and tied by a thin string. It was a “weird” find, said Dominic Rico, 14, who was joined by brother Alex, 12. “We thought it was a time capsule,” said Victor DiCarlo, 13. Phil Rico tentatively unfurled the note to read: Hemet, Calif. Jan. 22, 1938 Watson Gilmore Jr. and I (Jack Crawford) on the night of Jan. 21, and 22 of 1938, at midnight

bits and built bonfires down by the San Jacinto River to roast weenies. His mother would send them off with a jug of juice while his father farmed the alfalfa fields and tended to the eight horses and six mules. ‘Country kids’ “We were just country kids,” Gilmore said. He was the serious one. Crawford was always playing jokes on others. They were in the same classes at Hemet High School, where Gilmore was a center on the Bulldogs’ California Interscholastic Federation championship football team. They graduated in 1939. “Hemet High School has been there forever,” Gilmore said, “and we are the only ones that won a CIF championship. Heh heh heh.” Gilmore and Crawford entered the service soon after, Gilmore the Marines and Crawford the Navy. Gilmore enlisted in 1942 at age 22. He served as a gunner aboard fighter planes in the South Pacific and fought at Guadalcanal during World War II. Sgt. Gilmore earned the Distinguished Flying Cross and six air medals. He served for nine years, and then fought in Korea as a reserve. “I killed a lot of people,” he said regretfully. Crawford, he said, worked for Douglas Aircraft upon leaving the Navy before dying in the
1950s. Gilmore, meanwhile, was embarking on two new parallel careers. He was a police officer in Hemet for five years before working as a Riverside County sheriff’s deputy for 25. For 52 years, he played various parts in “Ramona,” the outdoor play that opened in 1923, three years after Gilmore was born. He was Juan Canito, Jim Farrar, Felipe, a Spanish dancer and a rock Indian. His wife, Melba, was the longtime stage manager before her death in 2005. Gilmore made headdresses for the play and painted landscapes and portraits on canvas. He now tends a vegetable garden, watches television on a big flat screen and puts out food for neighborhood cats at his home near Hemet Valley Medical Center.
The passage of time has stolen a few of Gilmore’s memories, such as the specifics of those good-luck charms. Or maybe some adventures and incidents weren’t important enough for a busy fighting man, police officer, artist, actor, husband and father to remember. So little wonder this week when a visitor turned back the clock 72 years, and Gilmore could only vaguely remember one of the “dumb” things he and Crawford did, when as 17-year-olds they hiked the same hill the DiCarlos and Ricos now frequent, when they left behind a moment in

Meth No More Continued from A1 with being booted from her Arizona home and sent to her parent’s Vernal home. “I was so sick, I couldn’t get off the bathroom floor,” she says. Looking back she says her journey into addiction began by stealing her parent’s booze at 13, partying through her teens, and binging through her 20’s. “In my 30s I was drinking around the clock and by 38, I was told the alcohol left me with three months to live,” Joey says, whose trip home came after that diagnosis. Still, no wake up call for Joey. Sound unreasonable? “Not really,” says Yack. “The average age that teens start alcohol is 13 or drugs at about 14 years in age. Addicts learn their life-coping skills through their addiction.” The anxiety of youth, the absence of constructive coping skills, the urge to fit in – their youthful start sets them up for inevitable failure. Joey tried to dial-back her binging on her own, but for every difficulty she faced in life her answer was booze. “I’d cope by drinking at home or at work, everywhere,” she says, “I tried rehab and 12-step meetings, but I wasn’t ready. By the time I came to Kit, I was desperate and ready.” “It’s funny, here I was in a big city where I couldn’t get clean and sober,”she said. “Then I come back to ‘podunk’ Vernal and find job category by 2012. “Utah arguably had the strongest economy in the U.S. in 2006-2007,” says Matthews, “faired better than most states with a state-wide average unemployment rate of 6.5 percent in 2009.” It may take more than time to heal the jobless rate in the Uintah Basin. Matthews cites the percent of overall change in Basin employment as minus 17 percent from Dec. 2008 to Dec. 2009. The dramatic drop attributable to the demise of the oil and gas extraction industry in the Basin. Matthews diplomatically brushes politics aside saying only that time will tell if a change in administration will advance recovery. email@example.com

the tools that I needed.” The big tools in her arsenal have been discipline and commitment, which have allowed her to bring her life back into balance. The tragedy pf Joey’s life was not being the mother to her son that she desperately wanted to be. Toward the end she was barely able to function. “My day consisted of getting out of bed and crawling to the bathroom,” she says. “At 5:30 a.m. I’d make myself a stiff drink to pull myself together and get my child off to school.” Drinking all day left Joey unable to go to soccer matches or other activities her son and husband attended. Little wonder she says the marriage dissolved. Joey’s family took a backseat to her addiction, which is something Cheri (not her real name) knew from personal experience. In Cheri’s case she was desperate to help her addict daughter and three grandchildren. “I’d have moved heaven and earth to help her,” says Cheri, recently back from a mutli-state drive to retrieve her daughter from an abusive relationship. “But, she’s here now in treatment and will have to help herself.” Cheri, eight years clean and sober herself, has known Yack for many years. “I go to her church,” she says. “I knew I could count on Kit and the Meth-No-More program.” Both Cheri and Joey know the pain of addiction and the hard work required to climb back from its grip. Both have hope for the future. Joey summed it up best, saying “I’m comfortable in my skin now, it’s not perfect, but it’s better.” Meth-No-More is the brainchild of Uintah County’s Commission, Attorney’s Office, and Sheriff’s Department and is celebrating its first successful year of operation. They offer referral for addiction to the Northeastern Counseling Center or other rehabilitation centers throughout the State. Kit Yack and the Meth-NoMore Program is housed in the Uintah County Building at 152 E. Main, in Vernal, 781-5374. firstname.lastname@example.org

Wells Fargo projects to remain in the 2 percent range over the year.” Basically, it means businesses have cut inventory and employees, which doesn’t instill confidence in a rapid economic rebuilding. Matthews says this is frustrating for economists as “a fair amount of the money (TARP, Stimulus) that has been spent which has translated into only meager confidence in the growth of the private sector.” Evidence of this slow return is evident in the “lagging indicator” of job creation which has plagued economic recovery since the first quarter of 2009. “The jobs picture shows the stagnation in nonfarm payroll with little job growth projected for this or the next year,” the economist said. The rate of job loss, on the other hand, Dr. Matthews says has slowed significantly. Perhaps turning around into the positive

Vernal resident Beau Searle was transported to Ashley Regional Medical Center and later, airlifted to Salt Lake for further assessment after rolling his pickup truck. The accident occurred on 2500 East near 3000 South around 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 23. Witnesses say Searle, 24, was southbound on 2500 east at a high rate of speed when he attempted to pass another vehicle. Searle’s vehicle traveled off the right shoulder of the road upon re-entering the southbound lane and rolled. sliding into a patch of trees and came to rest on its roof. Searle sustained lacerations to his head and face. Investigators believe that speed and alcohol were both factors in the accident. At this time the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the crash.

Fight between brothers leads to shooting injury By Andre Salvail
Uintah Basin Standard
A Sunday morning argument between two brothers watching TV in their Roosevelt home quickly turned physical and led to a shooting injury, according to police. The altercation occurred before 9 a.m. Feb. 21 at the home of Jon and Robert Workman at 611 East Lagoon. Detective Allan Tucker said the two brothers were arguing that morning when Jon, 44, threw a coffee cup at the television, breaking the screen. Jon then went down to the basement to fetch another TV, and while making his way back upstairs, Robert, 55, was waiting for him. A scuffle ensued, and the TV Jon was carrying tumbled down the stairs.

Is it spring? By Kevin Ashby
I was reverently sitting in church on Sunday after walking into the chapel in a cover of fog and shivering from the below 20 degree temperatures that morning. Not that the church experience threw me off balance, but I was surprised when the opening prayer included our gratitude for the spring like weather that we had been experiencing the past week or so. Wow! ‘Where have I been?’ I thought while trying to keep my eyes closed and my mind focused on the words of the prayer. It didn’t work as my mind reflected only on cold mornings, foggy conditions and shivers up and down my spine. So, today at work, I have listened to the comments of people coming in the door and most are commenting on the warmer weather. They have more spring to their step and there is an easier smile on their face. And that is okay with me. Spring is defined as the transition period between winter and summer running from March 20 to June 21. The days are getting longer and having the sun shine a little longer each day is good for my attitude. I can get into more sunshine. I did some riding around last week and did see a prairie dog poke its head up above the snow level only to quickly go back down the hole and disappear. There were even a couple of new calves in my neighbor’s field that also reminds me that spring is in the air or shortly will be. There was also a robin flying around from branch to branch that reminded me of spring. Although it was depressing watching him fly around looking for some leftover food that is still buried with snow. My daughter did send me a picture of tulips coming into full bloom at her house. I will mention that they were indoor plants, but still they are a great reminder of soon to come warmer temperatures. I am definitely a four season kind of guy, but spring has to be my favorite of the four. Spring brings with it the long awaited source of color on the hills. I love seeing newborn animals, no matter the make and model. There is an air of excitement for me in watching leaves break out and turn green. Life to poke up out of the ground where green is so much a sign of life and better days to come. And then there is the feeling of just being warm again. Not under all the coats and clothes that we wear during the winter, but the warmth on you face as you turn your face toward the sun and you drink of its rays. Emily Dickinson once wrote, “I cannot meet the Spring unmoved...” and this sums up my feelings as the days of winter lesson their hold and the excitement for spring strengthens my resolve to go forward. Next year, I promise to be a little more cognizant of the warmer weather and will be one of the first to proclaim, “Wow! The days are warming and I am thankful.” email@example.com
Credit card camping By Tabatha Deans Associate Editor
Camping is one of my favorite past times. As a child, I went camping with my family in the mountains around the Basin regularly. It was a cheap and entertaining way for us to spend time together. A couple packages of hot dogs, a cooler, some cold cereal and a couple of tents were all we needed for an entire weekend of fun. The concept was the same when I was raising my own daughter. A few hot dogs, some Pop-Tarts, a tent and a few friends, and we were set for the weekend. Most of my friends were single parents like myself, living on a strict budget that left little or no money for extended vacations. But we got together every year to take the kids camping. The kids all grew up and left home, and it’s been a few years since we took our annual camping trip. But now, as we prepare to meet again this summer, our crew includes kids, and for some, grandkids. Although we (the mothers) are in better financial situations, the younger ones in our group are still starting out in life and struggling. When I attempted to make reservations for a reunion camping trip, I was surprised to find out that you can only make reservations online, and now they must be paid for only with a credit card. And each reservation carries with it an $8 reservation fee. Most camp sites only range from $10 to $15 each, so each reservation fee is almost enough for another night’s stay. Americans who refuse to fall into the trap of getting into credit card debt by not owning a credit card, apparently can no longer reserve a camp site. And now campers will be entered into a database which includes their information, making the experience of a weekend being lost in the wilderness null and void. I understand that we need to spend money to keep our state parks clean and functioning, but the running and maintaining of the campgrounds has already been outsourced to a campground management company, and reservations have been outsourced as well. My question is: how much money are we giving the companies we outsource to? And is it worth it if some people are excluded from enjoying our state parks because of lack of funds and/or a credit card? firstname.lastname@example.org

Foster Care worked for me Dear Editor, I was very offended about a letter in the paper referring to foster children, and the (proposed) residential treatment center. Just because a youth is in the foster care system, does not make, or insinuate, that that person is a criminal. I was 15 when I first was placed into a foster home. Due to my mother going to prison, I had no family that could take me. Then I felt like I was branded as a bad child to anyone who knew that I was in a foster home. And when I was in school I had to go to a separate class from other kids. Being branded that way can really hurt a young girl’s self-esteem. I am now 29 years old and have been with my husband for 13 years. We also have a 10-year-old son who is amazing. I have a wonderful job, and life, thanks to Nola and Archie Fortine taking me into their home and saving my life. I now know it’s not my fault I was put in the situation; it was my parents who put me there. How many kids who are not in foster care are out there causing trouble? Why do people always think if a person gets into trouble it’s because they were in foster care? It is my understanding that treatment center will teach independent living skills, along with life skill, and help the families with family counseling. (A lot of other people could use family counseling.) Just because these youth have been abused doesn’t mean they will automatically become abusers or sexual predators. This community needs to come together to help these children become young, responsible adults. I think we need to think about what is in the best interest of these kids and help them get the help they need. Ex-Foster Child Melissa Price Vernal.
Foster kids are people too Dear Editor, Teens who are in foster care should be treated with more respect than what people give them. Communities sometimes look down on us, but we are just normal teens. Yes, we have had problems with our families, but its the parents who need the counseling. They need to
take care of their children and teach them the better way of life. The letter in last week’s opinion section from Ray and Nikki Lund makes it sound like she (Nola Fortine) is going to build a psych ward for teenagers. She is trying to help teenagers, not lock us up and treat us like prisoners. All she is trying to do is help the teens in our community. These teens that she is bringing into the residential treatment center are not criminals! No one should be afraid of living next to one. We foster youth need help and that is what she is trying to do, give youth that are crying for help a chance to feel love, hope and warmth again. The facility is a business, but what about foster homes? Are they considered a business too? Foster homes are just like what she is trying to build. The plus is that it can take in more teens that need our help, and teach us better life skills. It will also help our parents get counseling also. So please support Mrs. Fortine and help build a better place for youth in need. Former foster youth Nikki Fortine Vernal
Foster kids not criminals Dear Editor, As I was reading the letter in the Vernal Express last week written by the Lund’s, regarding a proposed youth residential treatment facility, I felt very offended. As an ex-foster child, I do not want to be known as a criminal just because I have been in foster care. I have to disagree with the Lund’s about the “group home being a busines,” and about “making money off of this treatment.” Just because one woman finally gets up to do the right thing, doesn’t mean we should shut her down with our negative comments and actions. Mrs. Fortine isn’t in this to make money; she is trying her best to help the teenagers out there who need help. What’s wrong with having another business in the community? I mean it’s for a good cause. Our children are our future, and building a group home will help the teens that are troubled. These teens need a little push, not a push away. I’m strongly behind Mrs. Fortine with support of the group home. Jessica Kelsey Vernal

Mrs. Fortine wants to help teens get on their feet to a better life on the right path. She doesn’t want to treat teens that have done nothing wrong like criminals. Mrs.Fortine, is offering help to those teens who need it, she is offering the proper help that these teens need to get the head start to the right path in life. Just because these teens need a more structured support base that can help them better there life’s does not mean they are criminals. Most teens that have done nothing wrong, and need this help spend weeks in a juvenile center. The teens are in a lock down facility where they are treated like criminals, because there is no where else for these teens to go, until a foster home is found for them. The grope home would save these innocent teens from being treated like the criminals that we are not. It states in the article that the teens will be allowed to come and go as they like. Mrs.Fortine said that the teens will be put on a step by step process, and will be supervised at all times except for when they will go to school. From the group home teens will ride a school bus just as any other teen would have the right to do. There is no threat to other youth from these teens. These teens are no more of a criminal as any other teen out there. For the simple fact that we are in foster care you think we are horrible teens who are out of control and have chronic disabilities. That is wrong, we have no chronic disabilities, nor are we out of control . We are normal teens who should be treated equally as any other teen out there. I see no harm building a group home to help the youth in need. (Foster youth) Chelsea
On 3/1/10 at 03:04 PM, Shannon wrote: I’m writing this regards to Mrs. Nola Fortines group home, I have to say that I strongly disagree with Ray & Nikki. They know nothing of the consideration & effort that Mrs.Fortine is putting into this group home. She is trying her best to help the teenagers, and yet they are concerned about the “teens” mental & emotional illnesses, they need to understand that by building a group home & support system will help the teenagers. These teens that are in foster home or group home AREN’T looking to harm anybody, Most are looking for help. Some might say that these teens need to be in a mental care center or whatever, but first need to be in a home or placement where they feel needed & understood. As a foster child myself, I understand where most of these teens are coming from. I really didn’t like how it states in the Article that Nikki and Ray wrote, that most of the teens that go in to a group home will end up being criminals in the future. That’s a negative way of helping the teens, Reading this made me fill very angry because they are just putting the teens down, as if they have nothing else to worry about. And what’s the matter with living next these teenagers any way? They state that these teenagers may bring harm to the neighborhood, such as: breaking an entry, running away, or any other negative possibly, that’s teens in general. We cannot stop the negative action these teens choose. But the best way is to “try” to prevent it before it happens. They need to understand these teens have the right as any other teenagers out there. But they just need a little support system, which is the group home. So let’s come together to create a safer, violence, and drug-free community. Foster youth Shannon

Tell it - HEADER to the Pinewood Derbyâ€”chapterB1two Judge Dana Colovich Guest Writer
In case you didnâ€™t remember or didnâ€™t care, Bertha wrote about the experience of making a Pinewood Derby car a couple of weeks ago. Well, she is going to get a little more â€œmileageâ€? out of the subject. It got better as it went along. I started on my car early enough, but it still took two weeks to get it finished, and we were doing the last minute things the day of the race. It is kind of like an art project. You never know when it is finished. But it got â€œfinishedâ€? just in time to race it. The delay was caused in part by the fact that my real car, the Grocery Getter, was experiencing some difficulties of its own while we were building the race car. It couldnâ€™t seem to make it up the hill to home without sputtering, and missing, and I do live quite a long way up the hill. Mr. B. began to give the problem due recognition when it was his turn to drive the car over the weekend. He came home with renewed interest in fixing it. Since I had already been driving the car for a few weeks with the same problem, I gave it no more attention
than I usually did. Consequently, the Grocery Getter with its problems was on Mr. B.â€™s mind while the Pinewood Derby car was on mine. So with that background given and that stage set, here are a couple of our more interesting exchanges: Me: Are you going to work on my car today? Mr. B. I donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m going to do with it. I hope I donâ€™t have to put a catalytic converter on it. Me: I donâ€™t think it needs anything that fancy. Just a rusty air cleaner is all it needs, other than one of those flashing lights on the top. (I was trying to build a quasi-faithful replica of Tow Mater) Mr. B.: What are you talking about? It already has an air cleaner which I already checked once. That isnâ€™t what it needs. Me: Well where is the catalytic converter going to go? And what will it do? Take the place of the weights? We finally established that Tow Mater did indeed need a rusty air cleaner, but we were still wondering about the needs of the Grocery Getter. A couple of days later, Mr. B. switched roles on me. He sent me to the box store to find some parts for my car. â€œYouâ€™re sending me to buy a winch? I thought you didnâ€™t like to buy parts there. You
usually make me go to the parts store to get them. â€œI donâ€™t think you are going By Judge G. A.

Smith - Jones Megan Ranae Smith and Tarik Nickolai Jones married on Feb. 26 in Denver Colo. An open house will be held in their honor on March 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Western Park. Megan is the daughter of
Tammy and Joann Smith of Durango, Colo. And Tarik is the son of Barton Richard and Julie J. Jones of Duchesne. He attended Uintah High School. The couple plan to live in Vernal, after a few months.
Life’s ups and downs are still no match for Uintah Basin
businessman, Gene McFarland. He’s seen the oil boom and bust too many times to count and keeps on trucking regardless. Gene has had quite a career and quite a life spanning nine decades and has worked all types of jobs including driver of horse-drawn teams, contractor, roughneck, roustabout, truck driver, ran casing and managed too many business to county. His dedication to a hard-dayswork, quick wit, and striking memory help him to continue flourishing in his love for the inner-workings of the oil business even today. Still there are few days that you will find Gene anywhere else but either working or somewhere around the Basin talking work. Thus Sunday will mark Gene’s 90th birthday and, while still looking about half his age, he will be celebrating the big day with his family and friends.

workers, and makes sure jobs go to American citizens and legal residents.” E-Verify isn’t completely new to Utah. Current law requires all state agencies and companies that contract with the government to use the system. In a Feb. 10 Legislative Brief, the Utah Attorney General’s Office reported that the State’s experience with E-Verify has been extremely positive. According to the brief, out of more than 8.7 million queries run through the system in fiscal year 2009 and 4.2 million run as of Jan. 30 of this year, only 0.093 percent were false reports, making the system accurate 99 percent of the time. The State is not the only organization in Utah using the system. More than 1,600 Utah businesses are voluntarily establishing employment eligibility using E-Verify right now. “It costs more to hire a citizen or legal resident. You have to pay a person at least minimum wage. Those companies who are playing by the rules should not be placed at a disadvantage to those who are breaking the law and paying much less for illegal labor,” said Buttars. Ronald Mortensen, co-founder Utah Coalition on Illegal Immigration, who testified during committee, agrees: “Utahns have consistently called for strong action against employers who illegally hire undocumented workers. This bill does that while protecting our children from those who use their identities to get jobs, loans, and medical care.”
Steed found not guilty of assault in bench trial

By Andre Salvail
Uintah Basin Standard
Duchesne developer Frank “Joe” Steed was found not guilty of assault, sexual battery and unlawful detention by 8th District Judge A. Lynn Payne during a bench trial last Tuesday. The trial stemmed from a June 2009 incident in which he allegedly grabbed the private parts of a 23-year-old male employee, apparently searching for a hidden recording device. Members from troops 776 and 777 spent the afternoon learning He also was accused of slapping the worker and detaining him about the workings of a newspaper office,3, and the responsibility Wednesday, March 2010 - Vernal Express of publishers, editor and reports.

Two other Steed employees and longtime business associate Linnie Vince Isbell also were present in the office that day during the confrontation between Steed and the alleged victim. Defense witnesses and the alleged victim all testified to the fact that there was a tense argument in the office and that the victim was pushed into a chair after he stood up in defiance of Steed’s accusations. But courtroom testimony from both sides that conflicted with statements given to investigators immediately after the incident led Payne to decide that the state had not proven its case.

USDA addresses veterinary shortages with education loan repayment program
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that USDA had taken the first step toward implementing a plan to address veterinary shortages throughout rural America by repaying the student loans of qualified veterinarians in return for their services in areas suffering from a lack of veterinarians. “USDA can help ensure there is a first line of defense against animal diseases across the United States by placing qualified veterinarians in areas where there is a critical need,” Vilsack said. “This program will help reduce veterinary shortages, especially in the area of food animal medicine, which will reduce stress on producers and improve the health of the livestock industry.”
USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) administers the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP), which was established in the National Veterinary Medical Services Act of 2003. NIFA issued an interim rule for the program on July 9, 2009. Implementation of the program began on Jan. 22, 2010 when NIFA released a Federal Register notice asking for comments and nominations for shortage situations from the chief animal health official from each state and insular area and appropriate federal animal health officials. Guidance on what constitutes a shortage situation and nomination forms can be found on the NIFA Web site. Nomination forms are due March 8, and can be returned via email to vmlrp@ nifa.usda.gov . NIFA will convene a panel of federal and state animal health experts to recommend submitted nomination packages for official designation as a veterinary shortage situation. The public will be able to review designated veterinary shortage situations in
list and/or map form, along with information describing the nature of the shortage situation. NIFA expects to begin accepting applications from veterinarians wishing to participate in the program on April 30, 2010. In return for a commitment of three years of veterinary services in a designated veterinary shortage area, NIFA may repay up to $25,000 of student loan debt per year. Loan repayment benefits are limited to payments of the principal and interest on government and commercial loans received for the attendance at an accredited college of veterinary medicine resulting in a degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine or the equivalent. NIFA projects applications will be due June 30, and that offers will be made by Sept. 30. Veterinarians are critical to the national food safety and food security infrastructures, and to the health and well-being of both animals and humans; however, major studies indicate significant and growing shortages of food supply veterinarians and veterinarians serving in certain

other high priority specialty areas. A leading cause for this shortage is the heavy cost of four years of professional veterinary medical training, which can average between $130,000 and $140,000. Congress established the VMLRP as a way to remedy this growing need. Through federal funding and leadership for research, education and extension programs, NIFA focuses on investing in science and solving critical issues impacting people’s daily lives and the nation’s future.

I have people in Duchesne who can put you in your grave.” The alleged victim said he was crying throughout the ordeal, and that on a few occasions, Steed said, “Let’s kill him” and “I’m gonna kill him.” All of the defense witnesses, including Isbell, said those threatening statements were never made and that the young man never cried. They also testified that Steed’s accuser always was free to leave the office, that he was never searched below the waist and that Steed did not slap him across the face and nose with the back of his hand, as was alleged. The young man testified that he willingly removed his shirt to show the men that he was not wired, and it was after that point, he said, that Steed searched him by patting him down in the groin and crotch areas. Isbell said that Steed, a friend and business associate since 2001, generally has a bad temper and that during the incident, he had to stand between Steed and the alleged victim to keep the altercation from becoming physical. Though he received a not guilty verdict in this case, Steed faces other legal issues. Charges were filed against him and his wife, Joan Steed, in 8th District Court on Nov. 10 last year. Each received five counts of engaging in a pattern of unlawful activity and five counts of communications fraud, all second-degree felonies. The couple allegedly defrauded customers by selling lots in unapproved phases of their Duchesne Mini Ranches development, a violation of state law. The Steeds also await trial on state tax evasion charges. A hearing on a motion to dismiss the tax case due to their claims that the investigation was rife with improprieties recently was postponed.

Senate Bill to protect Utah children from identity theft
Senator Chris Buttars (RWest Jordan) introduced a bill designed to protect Utah children from identity theft. SB251 -Status Verification Amendments, passed with a favorable recommendation from Senate Business and Labor Standing Committee to the Senate floor on a 6-4 vote. The bill would require all employers in Utah to use a free, internet-based system, such as E-Verify, to determine the eligibility of employees to work in the United States. E-Verify, which is operated by the Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Social Security Administration, instantly compares the information from an employee’s I-9 form—including Social Security numbers and birth dates--with more than 504 million immigration and Social Security records. “This process of matching a birth date and Social Security number makes it impossible for an adult seeking illegal employment to masquerade as a child,” said Buttars. “If I provide my employer with a child’s Social Security number, and it comes back matched up with a birth date in 1999, they’re going to know that something’s up.” He believes E-Verify can save up to 50,000 Utah children from having their credit histories damaged and medical records corrupted. “Illegal employment hurts our children whose identities are often stolen,” said Buttars. “This is a great bill because it protects children, levels the playing field for companies making a good faith effort to hire legal

Betty Gidley Betty Jean Gidley has gone on an extended journey of peace and tranquility and as one door closes another opens on a grand adventure she has so long waited for. So on Feb. 22, 2010 Betty went suddenly but not expected, leaving behind her beloved family and choice friends. All of us that knew her, knew her as a brilliant, kind, friendly and open minded lady. Her compassion and caring were a part of her character, and was displayed in her caring of any animal, wild or domesticated. She was self-educated in many areas, and was a great resource of information and love, a great combination seldom matched in our world today. She worked a long and hard life, and was unafraid of toiling in the fields, stacking hay and growing gardens. With all her labors and hardships, she remained a lady, and shined a beauty from her heart and soul unmatched. Betty Jean Gidley was born on a homestead North of Neola, Utah, Sept. 13, 1931 to Harry Cleveland Hardinger and Golda Pyle Hardinger. She married Gene Edward Gidley on March 4, 1949. All who have preceeded her in death, along with Tobe (Hentry T Hardiner), Harvey C Hardinger, Harry James Hardinger, Ivan George Hardinger, Earl Pete Hardinger and Steila Nielson. Betty came to Vernal in 2003 shortly after the death of her husband Gene Gidley, to spend the remainder of her days with her family, of whom she loved dearly. She is survived by her bothers and sisters, Ted Hardinger, Eva Hardinger Brandt, Ray Hardinger (Leia) and Goldie (Lex) Hardinger Burton; countless nieces; nephews; grand nieces; and nephews, all of whom will miss her deeply. As requested by Betty, there will be no services, all those who love and cherished her will remember her how she was in life, not in passing.
Federal funds will be used to test innovative programs The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) and Idaho Department of Health and Welfare a federal grant of $10.3 million to improve health care quality and delivery systems for children enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The grant, which will be awarded over a five-year period, is funded by the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA). The money will help Utah and Idaho implement and evaluate provider performance measures and utilize health information technologies such as statewide pediatric electronic health records for children with chronic and complex conditions. Utah and Idaho will also test the effectiveness of having a “medical home” coordinator in primary and specialty care practices to improve coordination of referrals and information sharing. A “medical home” concept is one where the child’s health care services are coordinated and monitored centrally, often by a primary care provider. Additionally, the two states will devote resources to training medical residents in quality improvement and how to best utilize the “medical home” model. “This grant gives Utah the opportunity to be a leader in exploring new ways to improve the quality of care delivered to our
most medically needy children,” said Dr. David Sundwall, Executive Director, UDOH. “In fact, I am confident the work we do with this grant will save money and prove that we would all be better cared for over time by a personal physician who could make referrals to specialists only when needed.” The grant is part of $100 million in federal funds awarded to 10 states to help establish a national quality system for children’s health care through
Medicaid and CHIP. Other awardees include Maine/Vermont, Oregon/Alaska/West Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida/Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado/New Mexico, South Carolina, and Maryland/Georgia/Wyoming.

Hatch votes for amendment to bar use of Antiquities Act to create National Monuments Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, voted l for an amendment that would bar the Obama administration from misusing the 1906 Antiquities Act to create large new national monuments in Utah and eight other states. Introduced by Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., the amendment was defeated by a 58-38 margin. Hatch was disappointed at the outcome. “America’s public lands belong to the people, not to government officials and environmental extremists,” Hatch said. “Decisions about Cedar Mesa, the San Rafael and other potential monument sites should be made in consultation with state and local officials in Utah, not behind
closed doors in Washington and without any public input.” President Clinton used the 1906 Antiquities Act to create the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah without any public input or consent. DeMint’s amendment would have blocked the Obama administration’s plans to use the act to designate over 10 million acres in nine Western states, including Utah, as national monuments without congressional approval. Hatch has warned several Obama administration officials not to proceed with the monument designations, which became public knowledge after an Interior Department document
was leaked. “Members of the Obama administration have assured me that this won’t be a federal land grab, that they will make national monument designation an open process. I will do everything I can to ensure they make good on those assurances, give Utahns living in and around these areas a chance to have their voice heard and to prevent these monument designations.”

This past two weeks we have had a number of students visit us from Wasatch, Manila, Park City, Tabiona, and Roosevelt. If you would like to bring a group to Capitol Hill, just let me know. Work this week was busy and productive. We are feeling an increase in the intensity as budget cuts start to hit home, important bills meet final decisions, and the end of session looms on the horizon (two short weeks away). Both of the Retirement Reform bills passed the House of Representatives - but were amended. Senator Liljenquist indicates he is happy with the changes. FYI - when a bill is amended by the other chamber it will come back to us so we can concur (or not). If we donâ€™t concur, a conference committee will try to negotiate something to which both sides can agree. In this case, I believe that will be an easy process.

plagued the district for the past two years since the closure of horse slaughter houses in the United States. Bell says, â€œhorses taken to the local auction barn for resale go for less than the gas money it takes to transport them, or about $30 per animal.â€? Most donâ€™t have brands so thereâ€™s no identifying marks of ownership. Itâ€™s just easier Bell says for cash-strapped owners to open the gates and let the horses go. Animal control officers have seen a significant increase (15 total calls about 53 head) in service calls for loose/lost/abandoned horses. Before anyone feels compelled to throw their animals away, shelter operator asks that you contact them at 789-7297 or Central Dispatch 789-4222. There may be a better way. Alternatively, nuisance calls, particularly calls about barking dogs or stray dogs and cats, offer a mixed bag - nothing too dramatic up or down.
District statistics 2010 compared to last year in January ANIMAL CONTROL CALLS
Dogs in livestock down 40 percent Dogs at large down 9 percent Stray cats up 43 percent Dog bites up 33 percent Nuisance barking dogs up 43 percent Cruelty calls up 200 percent (2 total in number) Stray horses up 214 percent Stray cattle down 11 percent
(estimated from raw data) Dog impounds down 21 percent Cat impounds down 14 percent Livestock impounds down 89 percent Animals claimed by owners down 22 percent Owner released animals down 50 percent Adoptions from the shelter even numbers 501(c)3 rescue group releases up 53 percent Euthanized unclaimed, unadoptable or sick animals up 5% Fewer cats were impounded in January, but most of the cats taken in were euthanized. Director Christina Williams says the euthanasia reflects the poor condition of the animals by the time they arrive at the shelter. Shelter visits were 182 visitors
in January, which is 7 more than January 2009. Prospective pet owners are encouraged to visit the shelter at 1387 E. 335 S., in Vernal to see all the adoptable cats, kittens, dogs and puppies this month. email@example.com

Bennett says oil and gas lease sale in Utah raises red flags Warns that Obama administration is on a reckless path hurting job creation in Utah Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah) issued the following statement regarding record low numbers in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah Quarterly Oil and Gas Lease Sale: â€œTodayâ€™s lease sale is undoubtedly one of the smallest lease sales in Utah history raising a red flag for the future of the industry under President Obama. For the last year I have been expressing my deep concern over the direction of the oil and gas program and todayâ€™s paltry lease sale is another indication that this administration intends to further drive this industry into an anemic state. Todayâ€™s record low sale is not the result of a slow economy; it is a result of the Obama administrationâ€™s reckless path of more disruption and uncertainty of the already byzantine oil and gas process. â€œThe president has been
advocating job creation yet he ignores the devastating impacts his policies have had on domestic energy production. The administrationâ€™s actions signal disdain for the oil and gas industry and result in lost job opportunities and declines in critically needed revenues for not only the federal treasury, but also for the counties of Utah. â€œAs a member of the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee and the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, I intend to question the secretary of the interior at the upcoming budget hearings about the impacts of the departmentâ€™s misguided policies on job creation and federal, state, and county budgets.â€? The BLM Utah Quarterly Oil and Gas Lease Sale included only four parcels for sale. Today, the BLM sold only one parcel of 1,762 acres and that the sum total of the revenues from the lease sale totaled only $6315.50.

The Counties of Daggett, Duchesne and Uintah in conjunction with the Ute Tribe are assisting in undertaking an update of our communities’ Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. In the Uintah Basin area, the initial Hazard Mitigation Plan was adopted in 2005 and must be updated every five years. The State of Utah has commissioned the Uintah Basin Association of Government to do the actual update with help from local officials and Emergency Managers. The meaning of mitigation in Emergency Management is to cause a hazard to become less harsh or severe. Measures can be taken ahead of time to make a disaster less painful and disruptive to its victims. A first step is to identify what hazards a community is vulnerable to. The public can be helpful in letting officials know what is worrisome to them, and in giving input as to what actions can be taken to reduce the hazard. Measures for mitigation can cost very little or can involve infrastructure updates and changes. It is important to know that significant mitigation actions can be funded through federal grants. The process of updating this type of plan is very structured with planning groups organized and public meetings required. Members of the community can contribute by attending public meetings on the subject and helping to establish priorities and goals. Get involved in this process by paying attention to meeting notices and attending your Local Emergency Planning Committee or Tribal Emergency Response Committee.

“If you would like to become trained to serve either this year, or learn how you can help next year, please feel free to join us in the Uintah County Courtroom/ Commission Chambers on that day,” said Crane. Crane pointed out that Thomas Jefferson said, “I know of no safe depositor of the ultimate powers of [a] society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. “This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power,” said Crane. “Your vote always matters in any election, but it is said that the vote of a delegate at a convention is as much as 500 times more powerful, because you are among a small percentage of people who show up to actually decide who will represent your party,” concluded Crane.
Neighborhood caucus training meetings start March 10th
“If you have been anticipating the time when your vote can really make a difference, it is fast approaching,” commented Joni Crane, Uintah County Republican as she announces upcoming caucus meetings as well as needed training seminars. “We have all heard that our government is ‘by the people, for the people whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed,’ so when do we consent?,” asked Crane. “When you don’t participate, they assume you are happy. Well if you don’t like the status quo, here is your opportunity to make a difference.” On March 23 at 7 p.m. neighborhood caucus meetings will be held throughout Uintah County in every neighborhood no matter the political party. At these meetings residents will have the opportunity to become state or county delegates, or have the opportunity to volunteer to serve as a chair, vice-chair, or secretary in your precinct. To prepare for this event, on March 10 at 7 p.m., the Uintah County Republican Party will be training their current GOP precinct officers on how to run the neighborhood caucuses.

It’s no bull! Neola Angus wins statewide honor By Lezlee Whiting
Uintah Basin Standard
In a world that is becoming increasingly artificial, Kelly Crozier has reason to be proud of his “homegrown” bull. The Neola cattle producer’s bull, KC Redirect 902, claimed top honors at the Utah Beef Improvement Association’s annual Bull Test for achieving the greatest weight gain during a 112-day period. There were 204 bulls representing six different breeds participating in the contest in Levan, Utah that ran from Oct. 27 through the final weigh-in on Feb.16. The majority of the bulls in the contest are produced through artificial insemination, said Crozier, who entered 10 of his Angus bulls. But his winning bull was “homegrown,” purchased just under a year ago from Jensen cattle rancher Randy Vincent. “My bull gained 4.38 pounds a day. The whole test averaged 3.33 pounds per day and he was a pound a day better than the average. That made him 30 percent above average, which was quite the deal,” Crozier said. “There were only four bulls with over four pounds a day. He was pretty outstanding.” Crozier’s bull will have an “adjusted 365” weight of 1,384 pounds by the time he is 1-yearold on March 8. His recent win marks the

second time in the five years that Crozier has been participating in the contest that one of his bulls has won the prestigious title. In 2008, a bull sired by one of Crozier’s herd bulls won the Beef Improvement Association’s top bull title. Bulls are brought to the Keniston Feed Lot in early October 2009 where they are all fed the same diet and weighed three times through the October through February contest. The data is collected by Utah State University, recorded and available online. There is no prize money or “top bull” trophy but by placing first at the top bull contest, Crozier’s bull should sell for substantially more as it takes the number one spot at the wellknown Salina bull sale on March 20. Only 130 of the 204 bulls entered in the contest qualified for the sale. Some of those bulls belong to four Duchesne County ranchers, Crozier noted. Crozier’s bull has another thing that prospective buyers at the bull sale like to see: Genetics show it should throw calves with a small birth weight. “People who are breeding cattle want to have a calf that is not too big,” Crozier said. “His birth weight EPD is 1.5 — to a cattleman that immediately means something. The average birth weight for Angus bulls is around 2.2. So his calves will be somewhat smaller.”
Ham Radio Class set for March 8
The Borderline Amateur Radio Club will be holding an eight week technician radio course to prepare individuals with everything they need to earn their Technician (entry level) FCC Amateur Radio License. “The Technician license is your gateway to the world-wide excitement of Amateur Radio,” stated Erik Larson of the Borderline Amateur Radio Club. Larson explained that you can be sitting in a room, talking to people in distant lands like senators and sailors, astronauts and farmers. He stated that radio enthusiasts can hear world events as they happen or participate in relief efforts by helping to pass vital messages after a disaster.
“It’s great to hear a voice crackle through the air, calling you to come talk or be a friend,” stated Larson. “It’s your world out there.” Larson pointed out a big difference with the new course being taught is that people do not need to learn Morse code as was required in the past. Classes begin on Monday, March 8 and continue each Monday evening through April 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. At the Uintah County Building located at 152 E. 100 N in Vernal. The cost is $25.00 for course manual and $16.00 for FCC test. For more information, or to register for the class contact Erik Larson (AD7OV) at 828-8012 or email email@example.com

A Fort Duchesne company has initiated a voluntary recall of several of its baby products suspected of containing lead. The recall by manufacturer Allreds Designs, doing business as Hidden Hollow Beads, was made Feb. 18 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The commission expressed concern over several baby bracelets and pacifier rings made and sold by the company. According to the Web site lawyersandsettlements.com, a particular concern was the metal clasps attached to both of the beaded items, which have been available on the market since June 2008. The pacifier rings present a concern for infants and babies, but the bracelets are marketed to children as old as eight.
Suspicions were first raised when Allreds was notified that a 10-month-old girl in Missouri’s Jefferson County was hospitalized with elevated lead levels after being exposed to one of the baby bracelets, according to the Associated Press. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. The bracelets and pacifier rings were sold in resale stores and consignment retailers nationwide from June 2008 to December 2008. The commission warned that consumers should immediately take the recalled bracelets and pacifier clips away from children and contact Allreds for instructions on how to receive a replacement. Consumers with the items are asked to call Allreds toll-free at (866) 695-3551 between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. (Mountain Time) Monday through Friday.

Wild West Fun
Wednesday, March 3, 2010 - Vernal Express
By Tabatha Deans Associate Editor
Hundreds of community members gathered for some old fashioned fun at the Rod and Gun Club Saturday, during the annual Wild West Casino Night sponsored by the Vernal Rotary Club. Patrons traded cash for tokens then took to the gambling tables including craps, roulette and blackjack. Winnings were paid in the form of coupons that were used to enter prize drawings, and proceeds collected from the event will support scholarships for local high school students. The money will also be used to purchase dictionaries for every third grader in Uintah, Daggett and Duchesne County school districts. Casino patrons enjoyed food and drink, and later in the evening entertainment included a saloon shoot out, as members of the Diamond Mountain Rustlers bunch caused “trouble” in the crowd. Lynn “Colorado Honey” Whitman took cheating matters into her own hands and started a gun fight with fellow gamblers. After the smoke cleared players resumed gambling and whooping it up, before redeeming prizes at the end of the night. firstname.lastname@example.org

The Uintah Utes boys basketball team ended their season last Wednesday with a loss to the Springville Red Devils, 58-64. The Utes’ offense started out sluggishly as they managed just two Allen Abplanalp free-throws over their first six possessions. Collin Boren sparked the Uintah offense, stealing the ball and making a lay-up, followed by a Gavin Bullock high-arching shot over one of the Springville post players to pull the Utes within one of the Red Devils, 6-7, midway through the 1st quarter. A Kalen Williams’ free-throw was the only Uintah point scored during the rest of the quarter, and the Utes were fortunate to only be down by the score of 7-9 to end the 1st after shooting three for nine from the line. Uintah’s offense was more productive during the 2nd quarter as five Utes scored in the 2nd, with four of the five field goals scored in the quarter coming in the key, and two of those coming
after offensive rebounds. Josh Ewell made a 3-point shot in the closing minute of the 2nd quarter to pull within 7 points of Springville, 19-26. The Red Devils thrived in the low post all evening, taking advantage of their size by focusing their offensive efforts in the key. Red Devil post players Matt Sumsion and Sam Shreiner combined for 15 of Springville’s 19 2nd quarter points to spur their team to a 19-28 half-time lead. Springville relied on points in the paint to keep the lead around ten points for most of the 3rd quarter in a game where Springville’s high-scoring guard, Raul Delgado, was limited to four points. Delgado’s attempts to guard Uintah’s Rex Bunderson led to Delgado being in foul trouble and eventually fouling out of the game in the 4th quarter. The Utes relied on balanced scoring in the 3rd to outscore the Red Devils 20-16. Boren continued to work hard at getting to the basket and Bullock made two 3-pointers in the quarter to
keep the Utes within striking distance. The Utes were down 25-36 mid-way through the 3rd when Bunderson scored a left-handed lay-up off a baseline inbounds play, followed by an Abplanalp steal and lay-up, to pull within seven at 29-36, leading to a Springville time-out. Springville responded with three inside baskets, countered by Bullock’s 2nd 3-pointer of the quarter, to result in a Red Devil lead of 32-42 with two minutes left in the 3rd. The Utes finished the quarter effectively on an inside basket by Boren and a 3-pointer by Clint Baker. Bunderson fought for an offensive rebound in the closing seconds of the 3rd which led to a buzzer-beating high-arching shot by Bunderson off a baseline inbounds play to trim the lead to 39-44 as the 3rd ended. Springville’s Sumsion scored on their first two possessions of the 4th quarter, and the Red Devils teamed-up for 13 points in the first two minutes of the 4th, to build their biggest lead

of the game at 44-57. Boren hit 5 of 6 free-throws over those two minutes to account for the only Uintah points. In what has become something of a theme for this year’s Utes, the team seemed to play their best when their collective back was against the wall. Bullock responded with five quick points to keep Uintah in the game with the score 49-57. Two Springville free-throws built the Red Devils’ lead back to ten points at 49-59 with less than three minutes remaining. The Utes continued to turn up the offensive heat by scoring eight straight points over two minutes of playing time to cap a 13-2 scoring advantage. Ewell and Bullock each scored four points in a stretch of play featuring high productivity from Bunderson as he forced three turnovers, grabbed a rebound, and assisted Bullock on the basket, which trimmed the Springville lead to 57-59 with one minute remaining. However, the Utes were unable to catch the Red Devils in the closing minute as their spirited 4th quarter comeback from 13 points down fell just short for the second straight road game. Uintah’s hopes faded as a Ewell 3-point attempt rimmed out with the score 57-61 with about 30 seconds remaining. That shot seemed to sum-up the Utes’ region season as they came close in key games but just barely missed. Uintah was led by 17 points by Bullock and 16 by Boren. Abplanalp and Ewell each added 7 points with Bunderson and Baker contributing 4 each and Williams scoring 3. The Utes first year in Class 4A competition was marked by an optimistic start and ended with some hard-fought games where the team came up just short of
victory, and the winning record they needed to advance to the play-offs. The Utes gained valuable experience in Region Eight, where they will continue to compete for the foreseeable future. The importance of winning each home game is vital in a Region
where every game the Utes play requires them or their opponent to travel for three hours. Head coach Scott Mansfield commented on the Utes’ season, speaking of the high level of pre-season competition, which

Chelyse was nominated by her basketball coach, Kristy Putnam. “Chelyse is averaging 2 points per game, 3 rebounds per game. ‘Shoelace’ is one of the best free-throw shooters on our team. I wish she got to the line more. She is eligible for academic all-state; we are waiting to see if she makes it!”
Brooker’s teacher, Chris Piner, writes, “Besides being an excellent student, Brooker is always pleasant. She greets everyone with a genuine smile and a kind word. She also supplies a good number of students in my class with a #2 pencil on test day. I wonder if some of the students are leaving them home on purpose now. I’d take a class full of Brooker Miglioris if I could.”

Disease kills bighorn sheep in Northeastern Utah Bacterial pneumonia, which has been raising havoc with bighorn sheep herds in other Western states, has found another set of victims on Goslin Mountain in northeastern Utah. Recent surveys by Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) biologists have found most of the bighorns in the Goslin herd near the Green River in Daggett County are infected with the disease. “We’ve noticed a decline in the Goslin population for a couple of years, but we weren’t able to identify the reason until recently,” says Charlie Greenwood, regional UDWR wildlife manager.
In mid February, Lowell Marthe, area wildlife biologist for Daggett County, saw a bighorn coughing. He then surveyed other animals in the area to determine if the coughing was an isolated event. Unfortunately, he found other bighorns coughing too. And some of the sheep were acting quite sick. Samples of lung tissue taken from several animals confirmed the animals had pneumonia. The Goslin herd is relatively new. Bighorn sheep captured in Montana were reintroduced to the area in 2004 and 2007. The population increased fairly

they brought their exotic diseases with them. These diseases proved deadly to native wild sheep and often eliminated entire populations. Bighorn sheep, once the most abundant large mammal in the mountainous areas of the West, were nearly driven to extinction by the early 1900s. Many factors, including competition for forage, habitat degradation and unregulated hunting all played their parts, but exotic diseases were the biggest factor. Today’s bighorns are ancestors of isolated, remote bands that somehow escaped the exotic diseases rampaging through the herds as the Wild West was tamed. They still lack immunities to most diseases, and their survival depends mostly on remaining relatively isolated. This deadly ice-age legacy -- the lack of immunity to exotic diseases -- is the biggest challenge still facing bighorns today.

The tough overtime loss to Payson at home and the loss to Spanish Fork on the road at the buzzer were cited by Coach Mansfield as the most difficult losses. Victories in those very winnable games would have put the Utes squarely in the play-off picture. Coach Mansfield expressed pride in the team and their competitiveness every time they stepped on the court. He complimented the team for the class and dignity they exhibited as representatives of Uintah High School.

New federal firearms law takes effect A change in federal law effective Feb. 22, allows people who can legally possess firearms under federal, Colorado, Utah and local laws to possess those firearms in Dinosaur National Monument. The new federal law makes possession of firearms in national parks also subject to the firearms laws of the state and communities where the parks are located. Visitors who wish to bring firearms to the monument are responsible to know what state they are in and are subject to the laws of the different states, depending on their location. “We have been working closely with local, state, and federal officials to ensure that we clearly understand the provisions of the laws that will now apply to our visitors when they are in the monument,”

PUBLIC NOTICE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT U.S. Forest Service â€“ Ashley National Forest Vernal Ranger District, Uintah County, Utah East Park C a m p g r o u n d Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project An original hazardous fuels reduction project involving pole thinning, salvage, and regeneration thinning around the East Park Campground was approved in 2005. Due to a national injunction on the Fuels Categorical Exclusion used to approve this project, the original decision was withdrawn in 2008. A new decision approving the salvage and regeneration thinning units was approved that same year. Now
the District is re-initiating environmental analysis on the pole thinning units. The proposed action is to pole thin live trees less than six inches in diameter as well as to salvage additional dead trees on approximately 229 acres of lodgepole pine stands in the vicinity of campground. Excess slash would be chipped or piled and burned. The purpose of this project is to continue to reduce fuel loadings and create breaks in the continuity of fuels, providing additional defensible space where wildland fire suppression activities can more safely and efficiently be conducted. Comments on the proposed work activities may be made to the District Ranger at the Vernal Ranger District office at
355 N. Vernal Ave., Vernal, UT 84078. The office business hours for those submitting hand-delivered comments are 8:00 to 4:30, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Electronic comments may be submitted in Word (.doc), Portable Document Format (.pdf), or Rich Text Format (.rtf), with East Park Campground Pole Thinning in the subject line, to commentsintermtn-ashley@ fs.fed.us. Comments must be post-marked or received within 30 days from the date of this notice. To obtain additional information regarding the proposal, please contact Lesley Tullis at 435781-5137 or Colette Webb at 435-7815188. Published in the Vernal Express March 3, 2010.
less than the mortgage amount. Fraud occurs when a distressed homeowner finds a prospective buyer and they secretly set a low sale price. Unbeknownst to the lender, the buyer is willing to pay more for the property and the homeowner pockets the difference. 3. Builder Bailouts: Simply put, builder bailouts are a â€œkick-backâ€? scheme. They may be more common in a troubled real estate market where builders may have a surplus of unsold properties. The builder offers excessive â€œincentivesâ€? to the purchaser. These incentives are disclosed as a down payment which leads the lender to believe there is equity in a home. Under these circumstances the builder and the buyer are committing fraud. 4. Loan Modifications: The FBI Salt Lake City Field Office issued a consumer alert about loan modifications in the fall of 2009. Special agents and state investigators are concerned homeowners may fall for this same scam in 2010. Companies charge up to $2000, promising to make a homeownerâ€™s mortgage payment more affordable. But some
homeowners report that they didnâ€™t get what they paid for. For more information on loan modification scams please find the 2009 news release at: http:// saltlakecity.fbi.gov/ pressrel/pressrel09/ slc110409.htm. 5. Affinity Fraud: Affinity fraud is an ongoing concern for the Salt Lake City FBI Field Office and the Utah Division of Real Estate. Fraudsters who promote affinity scams frequently are, or pretend to be, members of a particular religious, ethnic, or professional group. They often enlist respected community or religious leaders from within the group to spread the word about the scheme. They convince those people that a fraudulent investment is legitimate and worthwhile. Many times those leaders become unwitting victims of the fraudsterâ€™s ruse. For more crime tips or information on how to file a complaint with the FBI, please go to http:// saltlakecity.fbi.gov/ or call (801) 5791400. Consumers are also urged to visit the Utah Division of Real Estate website at http://realestate. utah.gov/.
C1 Top FBI scams in 2010 Salt Lake City FBI and Utah Division of Real Estate Name Top Five Mortgage Scams in 2010 Special Agents and State Investigators Warn Utahns to Beware â€˘ Is someone letting you live in a home for free? â€˘ Did a builder offer you deep discounts to move into a newly constructed house? â€˘ Has a company offered to refinance your mortgage for a fee? If the answer to any of these questions is â€œyes,â€? then you may be a victim of a scam. FBI special agents and the state investigators with the Utah Division of Real Estate have compiled a list of top five mortgage related scams in 2010. 1. Reverse Mortgage Scam: Reverse mortgages can be a legitimate way for senior citizens to take equity from their homes without a monthly payment. However, con artists convince senior citizens they can live in a home for free, obtain a home loan under the occupantâ€™s name, and disappear with the equity, leaving the victim to repay the mortgage. 2. Short Sale Fraud: A â€œshort saleâ€? transaction involves a lender agreeing to sell a property for

Ashley’s gift: A liver for LuLu Two mothers and their daughters are forever linked by a ‘wonderful, yet horrible’ donation. Editor’s note: This is the second part of a two part story about Ashley Maynard and her family’s gift of organ donation. Part one of the story ran last week in the Vernal Express.
By Heather May
The Salt Lake Tribune
“A lot of my emotions are tied up in thinking about that family and praying for that family. It’s amazing in someone’s darkest hour they can say, ‘Take what you can from this person that we love and give life to [up to] eight other people.’” -- Liz Badger
Refusing to let Ashley become an organ donor, Camie felt, would be like killing another child. She asks doctors for reassurance that the drugs keeping Ashley paralyzed and sedated aren’t ruining her organs. Camie has a choice: If she turns off the ventilator and Ashley’s heart stops quickly, she could likely donate her liver and kidneys. But if she survives longer than an hour, low blood pressure and oxygen would damage her organs. If Camie waits and Ashley’s brain stops first, doctors can keep her on life support and more lives can be saved. Camie, a member of the Church of Christ, starts to pray for Ashley’s brain to stop. She also hopes families awaiting a call don’t feel guilty. “It’s got to be the most difficult thing to do - wait for another child to die,” Camie says later. “I can’t imagine the feeling.” To better assess Ashley, doctors stop administering the drugs sedating her, and she begins showing primitive responses, blinking and coughing. Camie runs into her room and kisses her, asking, Are you going to be my miracle baby? She is so close she can taste a salty tear from Ashley’s eye. Ashley’s father, stepfather, aunts and uncles gather at her bedside. She isn’t awake. But for the first time, Camie feels Ashley is there, spiritually, to hear them say goodbye. After her last visitor leaves in the morning, Ashley stops responding. The swelling has forced her brain stem into her spinal column. She is pronounced dead around noon on Jan. 13. On a ventilator, her heart continues to beat. Ashley will give her heart, pancreas, kidneys and liver. Camie can’t part with her eyes. She lays in bed with her daughter. She bathes her and combs her hair. ‘Can you say a little prayer?’ At 3 the next morning, Gina Wiser’s pager wakes her up. A transplant coordinator at Primary Children’s, she confirms the liver offered to LuLu is a good match, then dials Liz. Liz cries, thinking of the donor’s family. Wiser consoles her, sharing how tissue donation helped her own family cope with the death of her 14-year-old brother, Zachary. “This is a good thing,” Wiser tells her. Behind the scenes, the symphony of donation is playing out. I ntermountain Donor Services must find a home for the donor’s organs, and the transplant surgeons must be in the room at the same time to remove them. As LuLu’s family waits more than 30 hours in the hospital, they hold and play with her as much as they can. She sits on a mat on the floor as James and Liz blow bubbles into her startled face. When surgery finally starts, at noon on Jan. 15, LuLu’s 3-yearold brother, Jonah, her parents and grandparents say good-bye. “LuLu’s about to get a liver. Can you say a little prayer in your heart?” Liz asks Jonah as she touches his chest. Jonah folds his arms and bows his head. The surgery lasts for about 10 hours. Chief pediatric surgeon Rebecka Meyers works on disconnecting LuLu’s bumpy, scarred liver. At the same time, Willem Van der Werf, Primary’s surgical director for liver transplants, is removing organs from the donor. Once he divides the liver for LuLu and a baby in California, Van der Werf walks the soft, pink left lobe to LuLu, whose room is next door. “You just want her to move without being connected to anything,” James says of his post-surgery hopes. “I want her to be able to wrestle with Jonah. [Go] on a simple walk.” At midnight in the ICU, Liz places a gloved hand over LuLu’s already-shrunken abdomen and on top of her new liver. She quietly says a prayer of thanks to her daughter’s “donor angel.”
Caressing LuLu’s head, she says: “You did it. You got a new liver.” ‘She’s dying a hero’ Officially, Liz and James only know LuLu received the left segment of a liver. But they’re convinced they’ve seen their angel. On the morning of LuLu’s surgery, Liz received an e-mail from her sister urging her to read a story in The Salt Lake Tribune. Liz stares at Ashley’s quiet smile and reads about her family’s decision. “I always had a feeling in my heart that my little girl would one day become a hero,” William Antico, Ashley’s father, told the newspaper. “She’s dying a hero.” Organ donation is anonymous to allow families to give and accept freely, without the pressure of knowing each other, says Karen Hannahs, a family liaison for Intermountain Donor Services. To protect families from difficult emotions that can accompany donation, Hannahs advises them against meeting for at least six months. But Liz and James feel compelled to go to Ashley’s funeral to pay their respects. They need to know about the girl who saved LuLu’s life. Three days after LuLu’s surgery, they leave her in intensive care to drive 170 miles east through the night and snow to Vernal. They arrive early to the viewing, offered by the LDS Church to be held at a stake center, and are alone with Ashley, in her white casket with images of horses, for a half hour. Liz gently strokes her cheek, holds her hand and touches her where her liver was. Thank you, Liz says, I am sorry you had to die. An LDS bishop comes in and, seeing Liz and James’ tears, asks how they know Ashley. The couple, also members of the church, hesitate. They hadn’t planned to explain their connection to Ashley, wanting to keep the day’s focus on her. After the bishop asks for a third time, Liz whispers, “We believe Ashley was the donor for our baby.” In tears, the bishop embraces them, insisting Camie will want to know. At peace Driving to the stake center, Camie prays, wondering how she will make it through the day. When she walks into the room, she sees her answer: James and Liz are standing next to Ashley’s coffin. A relative eagerly tells Camie their little girl got Ashley’s liver, and Camie instantly feels at peace. The two mothers hold each other and cry. Without knowing it, they had been praying for each other for days. Invited to stay as the casket is closed, Liz and James listen as the family prays for the driver who hit Ashley and the people who received her organs. They watch as Camie kisses Ashley for the last time. At the funeral, Camie guides them to sit among Ashley’s relatives. “She’s a piece of our family,” Camie says of LuLu. “They always will be.” ‘You can be OK’ A week later on Jan. 26, Camie and Liz sit on a couch, holding hands at Primary Children’s. Camie has been following LuLu’s progress on Liz’s blog and she and Ashley’s stepfather, Len Lacey, want to meet her. As the two couples talk for more than an hour, the mothers occasionally touch their matching letter-A pendants. Liz wants a picture of Ashley to sit next to photos of her children. She vows to Camie she will raise a daughter to make her proud; Ashley, she says, has set
the bar. “I wish more than anything she was alive,” Liz says. Camie comforts Liz. “You can be OK, because I’m OK,” she says. “I’ve spent my whole life trying to get me and my family, my kids, to heaven, and I got one there.” Bradbury, Ashley’s emergency room doctor, now says he is comforted she lived so that she could save five other people. Camie is proud that a boy in Canada has her heart; a baby girl in San Francisco has part of her liver; a Minnesota woman has one kidney while a Utah woman has the other, along with her pancreas. Intermountain Donor Services confirms LuLu has Ashley’s liver. There will always be a risk she could reject it, though the chances are highest in the next year. A lifetime of anti-rejection drugs will bring their own problems. But within days, LuLu will be home, rolling on her stomach, finally hungry, eating cereal and cupcakes and chocolate. She will jump higher in her bouncy swing and laugh louder. Liz will feel Ashley gave LuLu not only life, but some of her own zest to fully live it. For now, holding LuLu in the hospital, Liz points to Camie and tells her baby, “You can say, ‘Mama.’ She gave you life, too.” Camie kisses LuLu’s bandaged stomach, saying. “I love you, sweetheart.” In the room, she can feel Ashley again. The sparkle is back. email@example.com Note to readers In hopes of encouraging organ donation, Liz and James Badger allowed The Salt Lake Tribune to follow their daughter London and her wait for a liver. In January, by coincidence, the newspaper separately covered the decision of Ashley Maynard’s family to donate her organs. As the two stories intertwined, both families agreed to The Tribune’s continued reporting. Donations kept anonymous to protect families Families who receive organs are not told the donor’s sex, age or home state to prevent them from tracking down a donor family through obituaries or online social media. Family members of donors are given more, but limited, information. Utah recipients are encouraged to write thank-you letters, but are told to include only first names and general information about their lives. The letters are sent to Intermountain Donor Services, which checks to make sure donor families wish to receive them. It is rare for families to meet. Intermountain underscores the gravity of sharing identities by requiring both families to sign forms holding Intermountain harmless against legal claims. - Heather May Not everyone can donate Utah may have a large percentage of people willing to donate - more than 70 percent - but actually becoming a donor is rare. In 2009, there were 66 potential donors younger than 18, according to Intermountain Donor Services. Nineteen families agreed to donate. To become an organ donor, a patient must die in a hospital while on a respirator and the cause of death typically must be a head injury, spokesman Alex McDonald said. That explains the shortage of organs: As of the end of January, 390 Utahns were awaiting a transplant. As of November 2009, 238 Utahns had received a transplant.

Troy Lupcho received the Chamber’s Outstanding Public Service Award for his efforts to provide area residents, young and old, with outdoor cycling opportunities. Pictured with Troy are chamber leaders Marilyn Wallis and Rich Buelte.
Lupcho receives Outstanding Public Service Award Troy Lupcho received the Outstanding Public Service Award from the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce, and was recognized at their weekly luncheon. Lupcho moved to Vernal when he was 16 years old. Always an avid bicyclist, he won the world BMX title at 17. He was then in a car accident that almost forced doctors to amputate his left leg. After reconstructive surgery, it was nearly a year before he could wear shoes and had to relearn to walk – his BMX racing days were over. He attended Weber State University and then transferred to the University of Utah majoring in Therapeutic Recreation/Exer-
cise Sport Fitness. While in Salt Lake, he started racing again, this time road bike racing, a much lower impact sport. Some of his friends in Vernal invited him to participate in the Vernal Triathlon. They won, setting a record. After eight years of working in the ski industry, Troy moved back to Vernal and opened his own bike shop. In addition to opening and maintaining bike trails in the area, Troy is a key sponsor of local Bike Rodeos, DinoTrac Fat Tire Festival, and started his own bike club open to anyone. He has sponsored and supports many events such as Red Mountain for
National Land User Day, brought the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) to Vernal, started a Middle School Bike club. An advocate for bike safety, Troy and his son posed as Elvis and Batman for a poster for Tri County Heath to encourage use of bike helmets. He contributes to and supports many Chamber activities and events. Now in his third and largest Vernal shop, Troy has carved a living out of the desert by giving more to the community than he takes. His shop is a gathering place for area teens as well as older biking enthusiasts.
Rescue Waggin’ rolls into Vernal To save lives, Uintah Animal Control and Shelter Special Services District sends shelter dogs to Colorado for adoption On Tuesday, March 2, 18 homeless puppies from the Unitah Animal Control and Shelter Special Services District (UACSSSD) went for a ride that will literally save their lives. These homeless shelter puppies boarded PetSmart Charities’® Rescue Waggin’® Vehicle – a national transport program proudly sponsored by PEDIGREE® that has enabled the local animal shelter to save the lives of between 50 to 75 dogs over the last several months via transports to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley in Boulder, Colo., where there is more adoption space and a guarantee of new homes. Providing animal shelters with a viable alternative to euthanasia, the Rescue Waggin’ program runs in the East Coast, Midwest, Great Plains, and South Central states. UACSSSD is an open-intake facility, which means they are required to accept all incoming dogs and cats, resulting in a high euthanasia rate for the county when homes can’t be found for them. “The Rescue Waggin’ program gives some of our dogs, especially our long-timers, a chance to get adopted,” says Sherry Gines, Shelter Manager for UACSSSD. “We can’t always find homes for
them in our rural area so we are grateful and excited to know that the dogs and puppies boarding the Rescue Waggin’ every month will get a new life and new home some place else.” The Rescue Waggin’ vehicle provides dogs and puppies with an air-conditioned custom ride, including piped-in lullabies, to their destination shelter, arriving the very same day. Once they arrive, the dogs get 12-24 hours of ‘down time’ before getting a medical check-up, their spay/ neuter surgery, and placement on the adoption floor. “With three to four million pets still euthanized across the nation each year, we created the Rescue Waggin’ program to help shelters achieve their goals of getting more adoptable pets placed into good homes – wherever those homes may be,” says Susana Della Maddalena, Executive Director of PetSmart Charities. PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program operates under professionally developed industry standards for humane transport. As a shelter partner in the program, UACSSSD also is eligible for funding to expand spay/neuter services as well as receive professional consultation from PetSmart Charities to
improve their shelter facilities and operations. More than 35,000 dogs and puppies have been saved through the Rescue Waggin’ program since it began in 2004.

By Gary Lee Parker Outdoor Columnist
Note: This is the latest in a series of articles by Vernal Resident Gary Lee Parker, who writes of the outdoors and the area’s rich history. Cabin fever, and I’ve been itching for spring and sun and warmth for weeks now. “It’s been a long winter, and there’s more yet to come,” I think as I stretch my muscles, pushing uphill, uphill, uphill, toward the east and the distant siren song of blue sky on the ill-tempered horizon. It’s tantalizingly close, as the clouds above me thin into wispy threads, threateningWednesday, to dissipate at any moment. I dare them, and keep moving. Animal tracks criss-cross the path I’m on like a patchwork of farms and fence-lines seen from the air, cutting the earth into geometric sections, like a shattered mirror; like the spring breakup of ice on a high mountain lake; but the forest is quiet, and there are no animals in sight. My shadow is thin and faint; as though my existence is in question. Some days I feel that may be true. Just as my thoughts drift to such matters – just as I begin to doubt – a quick panicked motion catches my eye on the road ahead, and I look up, drawn from my inner world to the more concrete outer one. It’s a small herd of mule deer, startled by my intrusion. I’m not supposed to be here. It’s been months since humans have ventured this far. The skittish group scamper across the path a hundred feet or so ahead and move into the trees, stopping at the crest of a low ridge to give me one last look before dropping out of view. A second herd makes a break for safety as I round the next bend, and I smile at finding myself in such company. I hike. It’s what I do. But, for a dedicated walker like me, winter can often pose a problem. Sure, I can snowshoe, or cross country ski – and I do at times. But hiking is an addiction, and the allure of the trail is as strong as it is indefinable. This morning, unable to resist the drive any longer, I packed up my bag and headed north, into the high country, looking for a solution. It’s strange, I know, but it’s been generally warmer on the mountains north than in the Basin, and the snow, in many places, is thinner and less daunting. I had hoped to find some warm south-facing slope with easy access and a little sun. I found my mark on Dowd Mountain Road. Past experience has taught me that dirt roads, closed for winter, often make good trails in the off-season, and this one is scratching my itch just fine. I stop to inspect a trail of cat tracks – bobcat, I suspect – and catch my breath, and the last of the clouds disappear overhead letting the full warmth of the winter sun pour over me, warm and reassuring. I can almost feel my body busily manufacturing a fresh supply of vitamin D, lifting my winter blues and fortifying me against the last depressing weeks of cold. There are rabbit tracks as well, and then, a half mile ahead, a well-trammeled elk trail that follows the main road for a quarter mile, stamping out an easy path for me to follow; a ready made trail. The tracks are recent, but not recent enough, and the elusive animals disappointingly fail to materialize. I kick at the snow, sending it spraying ahead, sparkling like a thousand stars in a milky universe, flashing into existence, then dying immediately away. And as I walk, affecting the world through which I pass – causing animals to skitter away; throwing snow into the sky – I begin to appear, to feel tangible and whole. My shadow is strong on the white canvas of the road, and the sun is filling me with much-needed rejuvenation, and a clarity of mind, and sureness of form begins to grow. Cooped up for months, walled in by the season’s malice, the human mind, as well as body, weaken. We were made to face the streaming sunlight square-on, and soak in its life-giving radiance. From our earliest sub-human ancestors to our own children and grandchildren, the need for summer, sunlight, and warmth is coded in our genes, written in our very souls. We are equatorial creatures who have wandered far from our homes. So, this warm-blooded primate will bask in the rare February sun while it’s here, and thankfully so. For Old Man Winter isn’t done with us yet. firstname.lastname@example.org
March 3, 2010 - Vernal Express
The Road: For hiking adventures on closed roads on public lands, any road will do. For this specific area, traveling from Vernal, head north on Highway 191. Stay on the main road as it changes to Highway 44, passing Flaming Gorge, and the Red Canyon recreation area. Dowd Mountain Road is on the right (East) side of the highway, approximately nine miles past the Red Canyon recreation area turn off. The Details: Though it is along clearly marked, and easy to follow roads, this is high mountain winter hiking. Be aware of the potential for hypothermia and frostbite. Wear weather appropriate clothing, and move at a pace that keeps sweat moisture from accumulating close to the body, as this can lead to hypothermia. Wear sturdy waterproof hiking boots and thick moisture-wicking socks. You may need gaiters as well. Bring plenty of water, and stay hydrated. You may wish to wear sunscreen as well. Bring a snack, and a few emergency supplies, and hit the road – on foot!

B1 Skeletal reconstruction of the skull and neck of the new dinosaur Abydosaurus mcintoshi found in Dinosaur National Monument.

A new dinosaur rears its head in Dinosaur National Monument
A team of paleontologists from Dinosaur National Monument, Brigham Young University, and the University of Michigan has announced the discovery of a new, large, plant-eating dinosaur, Abydosaurus mcintoshi, (pronounced Ab-id -o-saurus mak-in-toshi). The discovery is described this week in the on-line first section of the science journal Naturwissenschaften. The fossil remains were excavated from the 105-million-year-old Cedar Mountain Formation in Dinosaur National Monument. The new find contains rare and spectacular fossils, including the only complete sauropod skull in the entire Western Hemisphere from the last 80 million years of the Age of Dinosaurs. “Because skulls are made up of many thin and fragile bones they are easily destroyed and rarely preserved. So although more than 120 species of sauropods have been discovered across the globe, complete skulls are extremely rare.” said Dr. Dan Chure, paleontologist at Dinosaur. “However, skulls are complex structures that provide a great deal of information about the dinosaur’s biology and evolution, so they are extremely important. You can hardly overstate the significance of these fossils.” “Discovering a complete sauropod skull is remarkable. I’ve been collecting dinosaurs since the age of 14, and these complete skulls are the most spectacular fossils I’ve had the opportunity to work on” said BYU researcher Brooks Britt. “All the Abydosaurus fossils we have collected to date are juveniles, only a mere 25 feet or so in length. How large a fully adult individual was is unknown but it was certainly much larger. Although we haven’t found a complete skeleton yet, hope springs eternal in paleontology and we will continue excavations this summer.” University of Michigan researcher Jeff Wilson and his graduate student John Whitlock studied the feeding adaptations of Abydosaurus. Wilson noted that “Sauropods, one of the most diverse and long lived lineages of dinosaurs, are surprising in that they show none of the adaptations seen in other plant-eating dinosaurs, such as beaks for slicing or cheeks to hold in food while chewing. Yet in spite of the lack of any specializations, they were around for 150 million years and are the largest land dwelling animals in the history of life.” Whitlock added, “Abydosaurus is from a time period when titanosauriform sauropods began to develop a slimmer tooth shape from the broader teeth of their ancestors. This change in tooth shape is
related to changes in diet in a way we are only just beginning to understand, in part because we haven’t always had the fossils to tell the whole story. Abydosaurus is the right dinosaur at the right time to answer some of these questions.” This announcement is the result of a several years of research, beginning with excavations started in the late 1990s. The site contains not just one individual but the remains of a group of sauropods, at least four individuals and likely more since additional fossils are still in the ground. Most parts of the skeleton are present: neck and tail vertebrae, shoulder blades, pelvis, arms, legs, hands, feet, and four skulls --- two complete and two incomplete. The excavation and preparation of this new dinosaur’s remains has been a collaborative effort among the National Park Service, volunteers, students, paleontologists, academic institutions, and outside researchers. The new fossils are being prepared and stored at the Paleontology Museum at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
What’s in a name?
Scientific names are often a mouthful, but each has a meaning. So what does Abydosaurus mcintoshi mean? The generic name Abydosaurus refers to Abydos, the Greek name for the city along the Nile River (now El Araba el Madfuna) that was the burial place of the head and neck of Osiris, Egyptian god of life, death and fertility—an allusion to the skull and neck of the new dinosaur, which was found in a quarry overlooking the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument; sauros is the Greek word for lizard. The specific name mcintoshi honors the paleontologist Dr. Jack McIntosh, for his many contributions to the study of sauropod dinosaurs and his decades of assistance to Dinosaur National Monument and Brigham Young University. What is the title of the paper and where is it available? Abydosaurus mcintohsi is described in Chure, D.J., Britt, B.B., Whitlock, J., and Wilson, J.S. 2010.
