Vernal Marine killed in Afghanistan DNM

By Geoff Liesik Uintah Basin Standard Looking at the photo Tracy Beede held of her son Friday afternoon, it’s hard to imagine that he was always a mama’s boy. In the image, Sgt. Daniel Gurr is resolutely standing guard as fellow Marines move away from a helicopter that has just dropped them on the deck of a ship. He’s clad in full battle gear, his assault rifle pointed muzzle down. “He always wor- Sgt. Daniel Gurr ried about me,” Beede said, sitting in the front room of her Vernal home surrounded by a growing circle of family and friends. “He’d call all my friends and ask, ‘How’s mom doing?’” she added. Of course, Beede feared for her son’s safety, too. Less than five hours earlier the worst of those fears became reality when the mother of four answered a knock on the door and found two Marines and a sailor standing on her porch. “I knew,” Beede said. Gurr, who enlisted in the Marine Corps before entering his senior year at Uintah High School, was shot and SEE GURR on page A-2

boundary, you could get one from the state.” The permitting process that limits carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, particulate, ozone and sulfur dioxide emissions isn’t new, but the requirements weren’t applied consistently. While states had permitting authority, Indian Country was largely left out for decades. The process applies to all new and expanding industrial facilities. The rule came in response to requests from tribes and from companies that were having trouble getting permits to operate on tribal reservations, said Laura McKelvey of the EPA’s air quality planning and standards office.

EPA clarifies rules on tribal lands By Felicia Fonseca Associated Press FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Tribal economies could see a boost with a new rule that makes it easier — and possibly timelier — for some industrial facilities to obtain permits to do business on American Indian reservations. The rule that goes into effect later this month covers permits for large and small emissions sources in Indian Country. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency outlined the rule earlier this year. “In the past, sources may have avoided Indian Country because of uncertainty in the permitting process,” said Janet McCabe, deputy administrator for the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. “In other cases, states may have been issuing permits
for areas of Indian Country, or sources may have been bypassing permitting altogether.” EPA previously had a rule for large sources of emissions in areas that meet national air quality standards. But there was no permitting process for large facilities, such as power
plants and cement plants that emit more than 100 tons of pollutants a year, as well as smaller ones — like gas stations, boilers at casinos and auto body shops that emit less than 100 or 250 tons a year — in areas where national air standards haven’t been met. More than 77 tribes in the country are in those areas, according to the EPA. The new rule lays out requirements for those sources and also requires that the smaller emissions sources register throughout Indian Country. “You couldn’t get a permit to do dry cleaning or to do some sort of rock quarrying — take your pick, all kinds of things,” said Phil Baker-Shenk, an attorney who represents a handful of tribes on the matter. “You could not get a permit if you were in Indian Country, but if you stepped over the

The multipurpose room has a tiled floor and is nearly the size of two classrooms, Nielsen said. It can be used for special projects, presentations, incentive parties and similar activities, he said. One of the few things still waiting for completion is the new gymnasium. “It’s been too humid to lay down the tongue and groove flooring for the new gymnasium,” Nielsen said. “When it’s done, it’s going to be really nice for the community for Junior Jazz and other sports programs.” The decision to move the sixth grade from Roosevelt Middle School — now named Kings Peak Elementary School — was reached by the Duchesne County School Board during the

killed Friday by enemy smallarms fire during a foot patrol near Malozai, in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. The 21-year-old had recently been promoted to sergeant, his mother said. He was assigned to 3rd Recon Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, according to the Defense Department. Gurr is the fourth service member from Utah to be killed in Afghanistan since July 5,
when Army Spc. Preston J. Suter, 22, of Sandy, was killed when enemy forces attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device, the Defense Department said. On July 10, Lance Cpl. Norberto Mendez-Hernandez of Logan died while conducting combat operations in the Helmand province. And on July 16, U.S. Army Cpl. Raphael Arruda, 21, of South Ogden, was patrolling the Kandahar province in a mine-resistant vehicle when the truck was hit by an IED, family members
said. Gov. Gary Herbert, who just returned from visiting Utah troops deployed to the Middle East, said learning of Gurr’s death was “a moving moment to be so grateful to be back home and yet realize the ultimate price paid by our soldiers and their families that we might enjoy these freedoms.” “Jeanette and I join the entire state of Utah in our gratitude for the noble service and sacrifice of Sgt. Daniel Gurr,” the governor said in a statement. “We honor him for
pursuing his dream of military service for the country he loved.” Gurr had declared as a child that he would join the military when he was old enough, family and friends said. He had played “soldier” as a kid, Beede said, and revered her father, who had been in the armed forces. At age 17, Gurr convinced his parents to allow him to enlist in the Marine Corps. He choose that branch of the service, his mother said, because “the uniform was better, so he could pick up more chicks.” “That’s a 17-year-old kid,” she said. But Beede didn’t find that 17-year-old kid when she traveled to Camp Pendleton, Calif., to watch her son graduate from boot camp just months after he finished high school. “He’d gone from the little boy I’d sent to boot camp to a man; a through and through man,” she said. “I had probably never been so proud of him, and not as just a mom, but as an American,” Beede added. “To watch that many Marines graduate and that many young men and women be ready to take the oath and make that sacrifice for our freedom, for our country — to give up everything for that — it was amazing.” Gurr spoke last with his mother on July 27, her birthday. She said he was thrilled that the place where his unit was living finally had air conditioning, but he still longed for a real shower. Despite those hardships, and the dangers of

Donations can be made at any Zions Bank branch. combat, Gurr was happy, his mother said. “He was hot and tired, but loving it,” she said. “He loved his platoon. They were his family, his brothers.” Another person Gurr had a lasting love for was Stephanie Sabin. The couple dated exclusively nine times over the past six years and had reunited in February. They were even engaged for a while in 2009 after Gurr flew Sabin to Okinawa to propose. “It was perfect,” Sabin said as she recalled dancing in the middle of the barracks with Gurr before he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Despite their on-again, offagain romance, Sabin said Gurr was “still the first person I always wanted to talk to.” They spoke in July for three days when Gurr’s unit spent some time at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan, she said. “I’m still waiting for somebody to wake me up,” Sabin said.
Beede said the loss of her son has left her feeling numb, but she believes he died in the service of others doing something he was always meant to do and that he squeezed every experience possible into his brief life. “I did not see a moment since Daniel’s been born that he didn’t enjoy life,” Beede said. “He lived life to the fullest.” That life included playing soccer and serving as a student body officer at Uintah High, where he dipped and kissed the school’s female vice principal after accepting his diploma, friends and family recalled Friday, a memory that brought a mix of tears and laughter. “At 21, that boy lived a full life,” Beede said. She said her biggest fear now is that people will forget her son and his sacrifice. “He was a true man with a heart of gold,” she said. “He would have taken a bullet for anybody, even if he didn’t know them.”

major facilities or expand them in non-attainment areas had to seek a revision to a state plan that could take up to three years, but McCabe said few, if any, took that route. “That was a large part of the advantage we saw to this rule, and the reason it was important to do it, because it provides certainty in time,” McCabe said. The rule also provides a way for tribes to begin controlling pollutants within their boundaries. Any tribe can submit an application to the EPA to oversee permitting through a tribal implementation plan or stick with a federal plan. A few tribes have been administering programs that cover smaller emissions sources, the EPA said.

tribal lands and another company that took its plans for a biomass boiler to state, rather than reservation land, as an example of the complications. The EPA says the rules fill an important regulatory gap in the country’s air program that not only serves to foster economic development in Indian Country but protects the health of tribal members and gives the public an opportunity to weigh in on proposed permits.

Basin mom’s creativity brings pirate fun home By Kevin Ashby Uintah Basin Standard Dacia Jackson had a problem. What do you do for three very active boys who are addicted to TV and video games when summer has just begun? “They are so literally plugged in and I figured it was time for me to unplug them,” Jackson said. She decided to look for some play sets so she could take her boys outside and away from the electronics. “I decided that a fort would be a good activity center for the backyard,” said Jackson, who was excited about this direction until she found out that even the less expensive sets cost more than $3,000. “And it was boring!” She next decided to price the lumber and go about building the fort herself. After doing some measuring and calculating it was going to cost her more than $800 just for the lumber and so she bagged that idea as well. “You have to realize that I am a thrift freak from way back and so I decided to go to
(Deseret Industries) and look around to see what might come to mind,” Jackson said. Once there, she started seeing corner boards and fort tower railings being made out of wooden and metal bunk bed sets that had been donated to Deseret Industries. From there, the fort was only limited by Jackson’s imagination. There were bunk bed supports, side posts and corner boards. She also found cribs and other headboards that fit into the decor of the fort — now taking on a pirate ship design — and her excitement level jumped a notch. “There is no doubt about it, I have D.I. karma and so I started looking in other departments for other items that would go with a pirate’s ship,” Jackson said. She found a steering wheel, treasure map place mats, a wooden box, binoculars and even a periscope. She was able to purchase a video game console that came with foot pedals for gas and brake. And the project began. Jackson placed a $500 limit on her purchases and she soon noted that she would need a lot
more wood — for cheap. She got on Craigslist and found a general contractor “yard sale” in Heber where she picked up $3,000 worth of house siding for $20. She also found specials on wood in the cull lumber areas of local stores that worked fine for her needs. Jackson did ask for help from builders she knew to plan out a design that would be safe and sturdy. When construction began, her father approached her and — choosing his words carefully — expressed his concern that the project would look “junky.” In response to her father’s concern, Jackson vowed not to let the fort be an eyesore and even established a time line for its completion. “This has taken a lot of time to get it done,” said Jackson, who she praised her family for being content with Ramen noodles and macaroni and cheese for more dinners than she can count during the construction process. The ship design changed a few times during the project, with Jackson adding an entire wing just for her youngest son.

Pirates Talen, Xander and Rowen join with their mother, Dacia Jackson, in their new play area. In the end, she stayed within her $500 budget. The ship has trap doors, a tire chain walkway, plastic pipe cannons, wooden decks, fancy “headboard” railings, a watchtower, monkey bars made from a crib bottom support, and even a wicker basket crows nest. “I even got on eBay and bought the pirate flag there
for only five dollars,” Jackson said. “This has been so much dang fun,” she added. “My kids are still plugged in, but now we have something to play on and somewhere to go when I tell them it is time to unplug.” As for sons Talen, Xander, and Rowen, they were all smiles when it came to showing off
their pirate ship activity center. The ship can be seen at 549 S. 2400 West in Vernal. More information on how to do it yourself, including personal stories and pictures, can be found on Jackson’s blog at www.shivermetimbers-fort. blogspot.com.
Oil down more than 6 percent after US credit rating downgrade By Sandy Shore Associated Press Oil plunged to its lowest price of the year Monday on concerns about the slowing global economy and future demand for oil and gas. Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude fell $5.57, or 6.4 percent to settle at $81.31 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That is the lowest settlement price of the year for crude, but it’s still higher than the $71.63 per barrel low of the past 12 months.

In the current economy, funding cuts are always a concern, he said. “Even though we want to encourage people to vote, we also want to get them out here to visit,” he said. “I don’t know how many local people know
and abundant supplies drove down prices. Brent crude, used to price many international varieties of crude, on Monday fell $5.63, or 5.2 percent, to settle at $103.74 per barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London. Anxious traders pulled money out of oil and stocks and bought assets considered to be safer during times of economic uncertainty, such as Treasurys and gold. Gold topped $1,700 an ounce for the first time, while stocks were down more than 5 percent. Standard & Poor’s on Friday cut the Triple-A credit rating for long-term U.S. government
debt. Monday’s trading session was the first chance traders and investors had to react, and many of them sold off. In the past two weeks, oil prices have dropped nearly $16 per barrel. Analysts think oil remain volatile this week as traders look for some clarity about the direction of the world economy and demand for oil. The Department of Energy is scheduled to release its Short-term Energy Outlook on Tuesday, and OPEC is expected to issue an updated forecast for global oil consumption as well. Traders also are concerned about debt problems in Europe,

It was developed in collaboration with the National Park Foundation, America’s State Parks, and the National Recreation and Park Association. “Thanks to dedicated partners like Coca-Cola and the America Is Your Park campaign, our nation’s parks can continue to receive the vital
support they need,” said Neil Mulholland, president and CEO, of the National Park Foundation. Dinosaur National Monument had received only 1,397 votes as of Monday, according to the contest website. By contrast, the top park so far — Oak Park in Minot, N.D., — had received 1,671,423 votes. In 2010, thanks to more than 1.6 million votes cast by its supporters, Bear Head Lake State Park in Ely, Minn., was named “America’s Favorite Park.” Officials there are using the recreation grant to build a new warming hut to ensure safety and comfort for winter sports enthusiasts.

emerging markets is positive. Gasoline futures have fallen between 35 cents and 40 cents in the last two weeks. That will translate into a savings at the pump of about $140 million to $160 million a day for motorists, according to Cameron Hanover energy consultancy. The national average price for retail gas was $3.66 a gallon Monday, according to AAA. That’s down 4.2 cents in the past week but still 88.7 cents more than a year ago. Pump prices should fall further, but the drop isn’t likely to prompt consumers to spend more money on fuel because of worries about where the economy may be headed, according to OPIS chief oil analyst Tom Kloza.

Uintah Basin Standard
August 9, 2011 • www.ubstandard.com
Picking Up the Old Horn Again By Ranae Bangerter, Vernal Express This past weekend I was able to be part of something historic. I, along with 100 other musicians from around the Uintah Basin, met at Roosevelt Junior High for a two-day rehearsal with a concert on the second day. The Uintah Basin In Concert, jazz band, concert band, orchestra, and full orchestra concert was held Friday afternoon, as part of Uintah Basin in Celebration activities. It was an incredible experience. Musicians as young as high school students and as experienced as the middle-aged played a series of songs they all sightread (many for the first time) less than 48 hours earlier. I, as well as many others who surrounded me on the hot black stage, hadn’t played instruments with a band in more than four years. I personally was surprised how my nine years of practicing my alto saxophone with junior high, high school and college bands came back to me so quickly, as the cliché goes “like riding a bike.” As I looked at the notes, the music seemed impossible to play correctly and in tune within just two rehearsals. I thought to myself, “Do I even know the fingerings to some of these notes?” But, like magic, or muscle/hearing memory, I was able to play the notes in sync with the rest of the group. I played three tunes in the concert band: “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “October,” and “In Times of Triumph,” as suggested by the organizer of the event 21-year-old Edwin Butterfield of Roosevelt. Butterfield recruited all of the area musicians and set up rehearsal schedules,

guest conductors, hunted down music from the local high school, handed out two other musical selections, purchased by UBIC organizer Chad Mortensen, and guest conducted the final full orchestra number, “Pirates of the Caribbean.” In January 2009, Butterfield organized the first honor band in the Basin, and came right back this summer after returning from an LDS mission to Brazil this spring. In the fall he’s headed to Utah State University to study music, and he said he hopes to return to the Basin next summer to organize another concert. As a new resident of the Uintah Basin, I was happy to see so many wonderful musicians from far and wide willing to drive to Roosevelt early in the morning and practice new music alongside strangers. I was equally impressed with the musicality of not only the bands, but also the string instrumentalists, who played all three numbers with just strings, no percussion. It was jaw dropping how beautiful it was, especially knowing they’d only had two rehearsals before their performance. I left the performance feeling great about the investment my parents gave me in making me learn how to blow air through a wood reed and not squeak, and also to have fun doing it. I encourage any musicians who haven’t picked up their instrument(s) of choice in a few years, to dust it off today. Play it a bit. It may surprise you how much you remember, and then, when next summer comes along and Butterfield is recruiting another all-star group, you’ll say, “Sure, I remember how.” To contact Edwin Butterfield email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
City’s actions irk Roosevelt Realtor Dear Editor, On June 27, 2000, our real estate office, Shar’s Realty, headed for Fruitland to tour properties we had listed there. On the way we stopped at the new service station on the right, just leaving Duchesne. One of the agents parked her car on the east side of the building and got in my Jeep with me and the rest of the office personnel. When we returned to Duchesne and stopped for the agent to get her car, the magnetic car signs were gone from the car. I reported the incident to the Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office. They were quite upset when they called me back and told me it was the Utah Highway Patrol that had taken my signs without making the local authorities aware of it. UHP did replace the signs with new signs and came to my office as a group of five officers, dressed in full uniform, to apologize for what had happened. The apology was accepted and appreciated.

However, I can’t say the same for the Roosevelt City Council. Police Chief Rick Harrison, under the direction of the mayor, city council or someone who thought they were in charge, instructed Rick to remove my real estate “For Sale” signs from the Sather property that borders the golf course. At first the city would not consider the fact that the property they had been using for 20 years was not theirs. Rick Harrison did remove the first signs, setting an example for others. I put up more signs; they were removed. In the end I lost a total of five signs at $50 piece for a total of $250, plus the cost of hiring someone to put them up for me, which is another $75 for a total of $325. Roosevelt City Manager Justin Johnson said the police kicked through grass and gullies looking for lost signs and did return five signs, so they didn’t owe me anything. The signs the police returned were not my signs from the Sather property. They were from a subdivision and had arrows on them, which were not the kind used on the Sather property. I have pictures of them. Justin Johnson said it wouldn’t cost me more than $20 to put up the signs. He would give me a check right then, if I would come and get it. There was no concern for the actual cost of the signs or the cost of the installation. It seems small claims court may be the next step. A year ago several businesses froze up on the same side of the street as my business. Mine never quit working. I didn’t feel I should have to pay for rerouting the water, but Roosevelt, City did. It cost me $750 for the new water line and $825 to replace the pavement. Another little gripe, I think we need to use addresses as much as possible. A stranger in town can probably find 200 N. 200 East, but where is L&L corner. The city giveth and the city taketh away. Shar Benson Roosevelt
Thinking Out Loud By Cheryl Mecham I fell hard. It happened when I was out on a walk with my grown son and our dogs. We walked the dirt path that winds through the cedars behind my house. The dogs trotted ahead of us with noses to the ground. Then, the earth shook. Then dozens of horses appeared, running through the flat plain of the valley. My breath caught in my throat as sorrels and grays, bays, blacks, paints and palominos flew past. We stood there, waiting straining to see what had caused chase through the last flashes of sunlight. Shouldn’t someone be coming? Mounted cowboys swinging ropes, or just a couple of fellows moving the herd from the seat of a pickup truck? No one came. No one was in pursuit – and this wasn’t open range land. There were houses every quarter of a mile. Houses and fields and farms and fences. Twilight was settling over the hills. We turned the dogs back toward home and talked about the horses. Neither one of us could make sense of it. Where had they come from? Who did they belong to? I fell hard. A few months later I told my husband I wanted to get a couple of horses. I’m not a stranger to horse ownership. When I was a kid my dad owned a few. And there were many times when I preferred their company over anyone else’s. I groomed them, picked out their hooves, and mucked out their stalls. I rode everyone of them from the ponies to the parade horse standing at nearly 17 hands. It was easy back then. So, my husband and I tightened up the wire fences, bought a water trough and pipe and put things in order for a horse or two. We looked at a lot of horses, and struck a deal. Then a paint gelding and a buckskin mare stood in the back field and I was on cloud nine. I groomed and fed and petted and sweet talked them for a few days. Then I went riding. Each was a bit nervous going out. But, I was more nervous still. The entire time I rode I
Utah seeks federal disaster aid SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert has requested a presidential disaster declaration to qualify the state for millions of dollars in federal assistance. Herbert says the federal money is needed to help local governments struggling to pay for disaster recovery efforts after spring floods. Estimates show flooding caused more than $12 million in damage statewide. Utah could qualify for as much as $9.5 million in federal assistance. Although the flooding was not as widespread as state emergency managers feared, officials say there was still considerable damage done to agricultural lands throughout Utah. In April, FEMA awarded nearly $11 million in assistance to southern Utah counties and cities damaged during flooding last December. — Associated Press
was scanning the route, avoiding gullies and garbage dumps and dogs and noise. After each ride I breathed a sigh of relief to have brought the horses — and myself — home safe. Riding gave me the same kind of anxiety as having an unleashed toddler in a circus crowd. In the stillness of winter I cupped the horses’ soft noses with my red mittens and nuzzled them. I looked after their every need. It felt good to be with horses again. It felt right. But good horses need to be ridden to stay good horses — and that was my job. Somehow I’ve grown into a Nervous Nelly. One that’s only comfortable these days with both feet on the ground. And I could not, would not ask
my husband to haul hay year round and pay vet bills for two oversized pets. I fell hard. Most falls don’t usually happen the same way twice. I learned that just because you want something with all your heart and are lucky enough to get it, the time for having it may well be passed. I think that’s true with old loves and old dreams, too. My friend said my horse dream was probably a desire to feel something that had been lost. I think she’s right. But the next time I want to feel a sense of magic, of wonder, of freedom from worries I think I’ll just buy a ticket and experience a movie!
Family Matters By ViAnn Prestwich Am I the only one who hates that guy who shows up late for every work project and then glibly asks, “Are we having fun yet?” Why doesn’t someone throw a stapler at him? Or an ax, if you’re lucky enough to be using a more powerful implement on the job? At the least someone should point out that he’s not only lazy, but also delusional about his own cleverness. Seriously, buddy, you didn’t just make that up. And, no, you know we aren’t having fun or you would have been here earlier. Of course, then the guy would say, “Better late, than never.” This is so egocentric. You think we were sneaking glances at the door hoping you’d walk through? I also want to heave work tools when the guy suggests we “address the issues.” The issue is you’re lazy and you just barely showed up. Also we should address your use of over-used phrases. This type of guy constantly has criticisms that he calls advice and then says, “Just food for thought.” “Eat your own food,” I want to say. Anyone who “addresses the issues” and gives you “food for thought” also approaches problems by reminding you that “this isn’t rocket science” (which I bet you already knew) and wants you to “think outside the box.” To be honest, I hate the phrase “thinking outside the box.” When fast food restaurants started using that cliché in their commercials, it ceased to be effective as a real com-
municator. I also hate the phrase “to be honest with you.” What does that mean? Are you telling my you’re normally dishonest? I’ve known more than one person who can employ the phrase “to be honest with you” right before they tell a lie. And not all of them are teenagers, but all the teenagers I communicate with frequently exclaim, “My bad!” They love to employ this phrase after dropping your cell phone into the spaghetti sauce or totaling the family van. “My bad,” they say again when they flunk a history test or lose the only truck key. I want to use logic and meaningful words to explain why their behavior is wrong. They cut me short with, “My bad!” There is something so irritating about kids admitting they’re bad before I have a chance to tell them. And I want to tell them a lot of things. “Get organized.” “Stop fighting.” “Don’t worry about what other people think.” “Don’t blow your nose so loud.” I tell them, but some things aren’t going to change. That nose blower or sensitive soul can’t be transformed no matter how hard I try. “It is what it is.” This is the only cliché that gives me comfort. “It is what it is.” I can’t change it all. We’re just fatiguing ourselves trying. Stop struggling to fix everything and laugh more. Life should be joyful. Parenting should be fun. So ask yourself occasionally, “Are we having fun yet?”

Randy Keys with the Utah National Parks Council gives Ben Phillips advice on shooting a rifle. This was just one activity the Venture and Varsity Scouts participated in during the camp at Bacon Park in late July.
A group of Boy Scouts from Duchesne County attended the inaugural Bacon Park Venture Adventure, where they had a chance to learn from mountain man Steve Meier, pictured in the center wearing a coonskin cap.
Bacon Park Venture Camp hailed as a success The first ever Bacon Park Venture Adventure was so successful that organizers say they plan to make the threeday event an annual camp for the 14-year-old to 18-year-old Venture and Varsity Scouts. “It was a great experience and some beautiful locations for the activities,” said Bob Gowans, camping director for Utah National Parks Council. “We hope to do it again next year and in the future,”
Gowans said. The camp was held July 28-30 at Bacon Park in Uintah County. Daytime activities were held in the High Uintas around Chipeta Lake and included mountain biking, geocaching, canoeing, hiking and fishing. Rappelling was done on the white rocks of Whiterocks Canyon and a special Cowboy Action Shoot was conducted at Bacon Park. “This was the first time a
special camp for older boys has been held locally where the Utah National Park Council partnered with local leaders and scouting units,” Gowans said. “The council provided the canoes, mountain bikes, pistols and shotguns, archery equipment, and video equipment for ‘Thursday Night at the Movies.’” One of the special features was local mountain man Steve Meier, who met one of the
Free flights for kids in Duchesne Duchesne County kids will have a chance to take to the skies Wednesday with members of Chapter 58 of the Experimental Aircraft Association. The orientation flights for kids ages 8 to 17 are part of the EAA’s Young Eagle Program and will take place at the Duchesne Municipal Airport. The program is intended to bolster an interest in aviation among young people. Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.4 million young people in more than 90 countries. About two dozen Duchesne area youths have previously participated at the Duchesne Airport. Each pilot volunteers time and aircraft so the flights can be provided free of charge for interested young people. “Free airplane rides are just part of the activity,” said EAA Chapter 58 spokesman Allen Rydman, who lives near Duchesne. Pilots at the event will also explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure safety before every flight. Flights last about 20 minutes and are conducted within a radius of 25 miles from the airport. Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered into the “World’s Largest Logbook,” which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Venture Museum in Oshkosh, Wis. The logbook is also accessible on the Young Eagle website at www.
youngeagles.org. “We hope to build one-to-one relationships between pilots and young people, giving a new generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that exist in the world of aviation,” Rydman said. An added, and highly educational experience is also awaiting any “early riser” who visits the airport between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. Students and faculty from Weber State University’s Physics Department will be launching one of their HABOR Project high altitude/near-space flight vehicles each day. HABOR stands for high altitude reconnaissance balloon for outreach and research. WSU students have previously launched eight flights from
“Spaceport Duchesne,” attained altitudes of 102,089 feet, tracked and recovered — via parachute — their near space packages at distances up to 60 miles from the launch site. A view of space at 98,000 feet over Duchesne, as well as archived flight data and previous launch activities, can be found on the WSU HARBOR website at space.weber.edu/harbor. Those wishing to participate in a Young Eagle orientation flight should call Allen Rydman at 801-391-4416 or visit Hangar No. 3 at the Duchesne Municipal Airport on Wednesday to register for a flight. Flights will begin after the HARBOR launch activities are completed.
Fourth bicyclist pulled over in Park City PARK CITY - Each of the four bicyclists known to have been pulled over by the Park City Police Department since June was stopped by the same police officer, the department acknowledged recently. The fourth known case occurred on June 19 at 11:57 p.m. in Prospector. Rick Ryan, a police captain, said the officer stopped a bicyclist at the intersection of Sidewinder Drive and Comstock Drive. The officer issued the bicyclist a warning for riding what the police described as an ill-equipped bicycle.

Ryan did not have details about what might have been wrong with the bicycle, but he said it is likely it might not have been outfitted with reflectors. Bicycles are required to have reflectors, he said. Without them, it is dangerous for a bicycle to be ridden at night, Ryan said. “If it’s nighttime, for example, and there’s nothing to reflect the bicycle is moving, it could be struck by a car,” he said. The case was at least the fourth involving an officer stopping a bicyclist since June. It was rare for a police officer to pull over a bicyclist prior to the recent string of cases. Park Record
groups at Reader Creek. He showed the Scouts how to fly fish, and said that a 15-foot waterfall about a quarter mile off the road has preserved the local cutthroat trout strain by keeping other fish from entering the creek, Gowans said. Dr. Mark Dennis, who organized much of the camp, said leaders were pleased with the participation and activities that were arranged for the camp’s first year. “We wanted to show the value of Bacon Park and how it could springboard activities during the day to the High Uintas, and provide an excellent camping place at night,” Dennis said. “We felt it was very successful and want to expand

GEOFF LIESIK, Uintah Basin Standard
A horse was killed Wednesday after it ran onto U.S. Highway 40 in Ballard and was struck by a Ford Explorer that belongs to Ute Tribe Security. The crash occurred about 11 p.m. near R&R Propane. Roosevelt police officer Emily Chapman said the stretch of road where the crash happened was so dark the driver didn’t have time to brake. He was traveling about 50 mph when he hit the black horse. The two men in the SUV were checked out at the scene by EMTs. They were not taken to the hospital. No citations have been issued, Chapman said.
Woman run over at Hilltop tavern, suspected drunken driver arrested By Geoff Liesik Uintah Basin Standard A fight at a Uintah County bar early Saturday ended with one person being run over by a car in the parking lot outside. Uintah County sheriff’s deputies and Bureau of Indian Affairs police officers were called to Howdy’s Hilltop Tavern in Fort Duchesne about 1:30 a.m. Saturday on a report of a crash with injuries, according to Uin-

tah County Sheriff’s Cpl. Brian Fletcher. Witnesses at the bar told authorities that Kyriea Jean Cuch of Neola arKyriea J. Cuch rived there to pick up some friends, and was assaulted by another woman. Cuch fled from the assault, got into her car with two members of her party and began backing out of the parking lot, Fletcher said. As she drove off, however, she struck Cherylene “Sid” Navasie and ran her over, the corporal said. Navasie, 23, of Fort Duchesne, was a member of Cuch’s party but hadn’t made it inside the car before Cuch drove away, Fletcher said. Navasie’s husband was in the car and asked to be let out to check on his wife, according
to investigators. Cuch let him out of the car and then drove off, Fletcher said. Officers found Cuch less than two miles away from the tavern. She appeared to be intoxicated and was taken into custody. A breath test administered at the Uintah County Jail showed a blood-alcohol content of .113, Fletcher said. Cuch was booked for investigation of aggravated assault, driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, and driving on a revoked registration. She later posted bail and was released. Navasie was taken to Uintah Basin Medical Center and then flown to a Salt Lake area hospital in critical condtion, Fletcher said. No update on her condition was available Monday. Much of what happened inside the bar and outside in the parking lot is still under investigation, Fletcher said.

A new federal framework has been unveiled that is intended to assist American Indian and Alaska Native communities in the prevention, intervention and treatment of alcohol and substance abuse. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced the signing of a memorandum of agreement Friday. The MOA was called for in the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010, which President Barack Obama signed into law in July 2010. It describes how the Office of Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse established in HHS’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will coordinate tribal substance abuse programs across the federal government with a special emphasis on promoting programs geared toward reaching youth and offering alternatives to incarceration. “A truly holistic approach is necessary when addressing
substance abuse in Indian Country because we know that where alcohol and substance abuse are prevalent, public safety concerns are similarly prevalent,” Holder said. “This new office will help further the commitment of the Justice Department and our partner agencies to build and sustain safe, secure and healthy tribal communities.” Sebelius called alcoholism and addiction “among the most severe public health and safety problems facing American Indian and Alaska Native people.” “It doesn’t have to be this way,” she said. “With help that is based in the rich Indian culture these conditions, just like other heath conditions, can be successfully prevented and treated.” Salazar added that there is a clear need for the federal government to better coordinate and leverage it’s resources to help tribal programs build safe, healthy communities. “This new office will serve as the federal focal point for this
critically important work,” he said. An interdepartmental coordinating council will guide the overall direction of the new federal effort to improve its work with tribal communities beginning with determining the scope of the problem — identifying and assessing national, state, tribal and local alcohol and substance abuse programs and resources; and creating standards for programs. “The collaboration among agencies and departments that got us to this announcement today is already paying off,” said Pamela S. Hyde, administrator of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. “Our work with tribal communities has resulted in a new $50 million budget proposal in 2012 for Tribal Prevention Grants, better understanding of law enforcement and judicial training needs, and serious new work and investments in suicide prevention in Indian country,” Hyde said.

Check out park passes available at the library By Kevin Ashby Vernal Express The Uintah County Library — as part of its ongoing effort to become more of a community resource center — now allows patrons to check out a Utah State Parks pass. The new opportunity comes on the heels of last year’s pilot program where Utah State Parks officials offered libraries a single pass for check out. “It was widely successful here,” Uintah County Library Director Sam Passey said. “We had 40 families check it out for one week at a time, so that pretty much covered the entire year.” The library is looking to provide even more opportunities for people to “experience life” more fully and will add more passes if the demand for this type of experience increases,
Passey said. “We are wanting to be more than just a library, but in the past it was space that limited us on what we could offer,” he said. “And soon we will have more space and therefore the opportunity to add to our services.” Passey defined a community resource center as a “libraryplus” facility. He and his staff are still working out the details of what the “plus” will represent. “We have a good tradition at the library that we want to continue, but we can do more,” Passey said. Ideas include literacy bags for homeschoolers, teachers and families to check out that include a variety of books, puzzles, videos and other things. Passey also wants to share technical help with patrons who want information about
New federal prosecutor, FBI boss named for Utah SALT LAKE CITY — The FBI’s Salt Lake City Division has a new special agent in charge and the state could soon have a new U.S. attorney as well. David B. Barlow was nominated by President Barack Obama last Tuesday to serve as the U.S. Attorney for Utah. Barlow has served as the general counsel and chief counsel for judiciary for Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, since January. From 2000 to 2010, he worked in private practice at Sidley Austin LLP, first as an associate, then as a partner. Barlow graduated from Brigham Young University in 1995 and Yale Law School in 1998. If confirmed by the Senate, he’ll take over the post from Carlie Christensen, who has been serving as the acting U.S.
Unoccupied truck crashes into river A Myton woman and two children escaped serious injury last week after a crash that left a pickup truck the woman was towing upside down in the Duchesne River. Dominque Grable, 25, was hauling the truck on a flatbed trailer about 3 p.m. last Monday when the trailer began to fishtail, according to Utah Highway Patrol trooper Seth Spencer. That caused Grable to lose control of her pickup truck and it overturned on the bridge that spans the river in Myton, the trooper said. The truck being hauled came off the trailer, vaulted over the bridge’s concrete barrier and into the river. Grable and two children were all wearing seat belts. They were taken to Uintah Basin Medical Center where they were treated for minor injuries and released. — Geoff Liesik, Uintah Basin Standard
DeChristopher attorneys plan to appeal his conviction SALT LAKE CITY — Attorneys for Tim DeChristopher are appealing his conviction and two-year prison sentence. The environmental activist was convicted of federal charges for derailing a BLM oil and gas lease auction on public land. His attorneys filed a notice of appeal last Monday in Salt Lake City’s U.S. District Court. The document says an appeal will be filed with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. DeChristopher was convicted in March of two felony counts for interfering with and making false representations at a government auction. He ran up $1.8 million in false bids on parcels near Arches and Canyonlands national parks and Dinosaur National Monument. He maintains his bids were an act of civil disobedience. Late last month, a federal judge sentenced DeChristopher to two years prison, three years of probation and a $10,000 fine. — Associated Press
Attorney for Utah since Brent Tolman resigned in December 2009. The FBI also announced last week that it had named David J. Johnson as the new special agent in charge of the bureau’s Salt Lake City division. In his new role, Johnson will supervise FBI offices in Idaho, Montana and Utah. Johnson has been chief of the violent crimes section in the Criminal Investigation Division since 2009. He has been responsible for managing programs that involve federal violations such as bank robberies, kidnappings and crimes against children. Johnson started his career with the FBI in 1999 in San Jose, Calif. He was assigned to the high-tech squad and was the agent on a complex theft case that became the first prosecuted under the economic espionage classification. He also developed the Innocence Lost National Initiative as chief of the Crimes Against Children unit to assist in locating registered sex offenders. Johnson replaces James McTighe, who retired from the FBI in May after 30 years with the bureau. The FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Utah have primary jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute felony offenses committed on Indian reservations in the state. — Associated Press

Wallace wins Mr. UBIC crown last Tuesday By Cheyenn Clayburn Uintah Basin Standard Aaron Wallace had no plans to participate in the 2011 Mr. UBIC contest, let alone win it. “My mom convinced me to run, but then after I started, I thought it was a lot of fun,” said Wallace, who won the Mr. UBIC title last Tuesday. He faced stiff competition from Braxten Nielsen, Jacob Augustus, Ryan Busenbark, Kaiden Memmott, Stephan
Earl and Kyle Felkins. The contestants were judged in five categories: talent, modeling, “very clean” joke telling, interview, and the Faye Yack Sexy Legs Contest. Like many of the other contestants, Wallace said he enjoyed the talent category most. “After I got going and into (playing the drums), I could hear my friends cheering and felt like I could just be myself,” he said. Wallace combined with
Quade Carroll for drum and guitar duet entitled “Wipeout.” The other contestants also performed a variety of talents. Nielsen performed a lyrical dance duet with Karli Campbell to the song, “Along the Walk.” Augustus did a standup comedy act. Busenbark played his bassoon and danced the hokey-pokey. For Memmott’s talent, all of the lights in the auditorium were turned off so he could show the audience

And Felkin’s sang his heart out as he performed Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” Wallace took top honors in the talent, “very clean” joke, and the Faye Yack Sexy Legs categories. Nielsen won the modeling contest and Augustus won the interview category. When the scores were tallied, Wallace was crowned Mr. UBIC. Felkins was named first attendant and Nielsen second Attendant. “It was fun. I honestly didn’t care if I won or lost,” Felkins said. “It was just so much fun to be up on stage.” Wallace agreed. “I think the best part was knowing that I did well and that all of my friends supported me and would support me no matter what,” he said. Wallace advised all those interested in running for Mr. UBIC in the future to “try it.” “It’s a little intimidating at first,” he said, “But it’s fun. Just get your friends to do it with you.”

Randall Thomas Tomaiko, age 53, passed away July 31, 2011
R. TOMAIKO 1958~2011
Randall Thomas Tomaiko was born April 8, 1958, in Roosevelt, Utah. He passed away July 31, 2011, due to heart related illness in St. George, Utah. Randy was a devoted husband and father. He married Troy Zain Nielsen on June 21, 1978. He was a loving father to daughters Tyson Tomaiko and Shelby Tomaiko, and Grandfather “extraordinaire” to Knight Tomaiko. Cherished son of Karen Carman Bertka and Dana Thomas Tomaiko, deceased. Randy is also survived by brother Ronald Tomaiko, Duchesne, Utah; sister, Roslyn Tomaiko, Sommerset, Calif.; uncle, Cal E. Carman, St. George, Utah; and aunt, Kristy C. Mayne, Lehi, Utah. Randy will be grieved and missed forever by his close friends, confidants and business partners, Ed and Lori Burgess. Randy spent the early years of his life living and loving the Duchesne area and Uintah Basin. He had a close bond and spent much time with his grandfather and grandmother, Ed and Mildred Carman. At the age of 4, Randy moved with his family to the San Diego, Calif., area. Karen taught school there and it was the home of his father Tom. In 1965, Randy’s family

moved to the Fair Oaks area of Sacramento, where Randy continued his education and graduated from Del Campo High School in 1976. Randy was a remarkable and talented baseball player and a great athlete in general. He was actually scouted by the Oakland A’s baseball team. But the allure of Duchesne was too great and he headed to Utah the day after graduation. Randy lived with his Aunt Kristy and worked for M&M Oil Field Services throughout the Uintah Basin and Wyoming. He married Troy Zain Neilsen, whom he had known since childhood. They lived in Duchesne for several years then moved to Evanston, Wyo., where he worked for Shell Oil Company and Franklin Supply. Due to the nature of the ebb and flow of the oil field related industry, Randy and family relocated back to the Fair Oaks, Calif., area where he was employed in the construction business. Again the love of Utah pulled Randy and family back, this time to the St. George area, where he worked for Bear River Contractors. Always the entrepreneur, Randy teamed up with his good friend Doug Brough where they created B&T Contract Services maintaining the new Ports of Entry and other maintenance services, which they later sold. Randy was also employed by Ence Excavation where he met and started his business relationship with Ed and Lori Burgess, hence the birth of Quality Excavation. Most of you here today know Quality Excavation grew and thrived to become one of the most prominent companies in South Western Utah and just recently completed their “crown jewel” project, the new St. George Municipal Airport. Randy is survived by his wife, Troy; two daughters, Tyson and Shelby; and his grandson, Knight. He was preceded in death by his father, Tom Tomaiko; brother, Royce; grandparents, Ed and Mildred Carman and Steve and Verna Tomaiko. Farewell Randy, you have left a hole in all our lives. See ya shortly. Randy’s life was honored at funeral services held Aug. 6 at Spilsbury Mortuary Chapel in St. George. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations be made to The American Heart Association. Arrangements are made under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary, (435) 673-2454. Friends may sign his guestbook at www.spilsburymortuary. com.

Open house held for dialysis center in Roosevelt; serves 42 patients Uintah Basin Healthcare held an open house July 28 for the new dialysis center in Roosevelt. The nonprofit organization which also operates Uintah Basin Medical Center invited community members to tour the facility and learn more about the dialysis process. The event was attended by Uintah Basin Healthcare employees, community business leaders and area residents. The dialysis center officially opened to patients in May. The region has two dialysis centers, both of which are owned by Uintah Basin Healthcare and serve 60 patients. The dialysis center in Roosevelt serves about 42 of these patients. The rest are cared for at the Vernal dialysis center. Patients usually have three treatments per week with each treatment lasting 3 to 5 hours. Those who attended the open house were given a tour of the facility by one of the staff members who cares for dialysis patients. The staff helped each visitor understand some of the basic concepts of dialysis from both a patient and caregiver perspective. The new Roosevelt dialysis center includes major upgrades from the previous center that have improved patient comfort, reduced the risk of

The facility features a state-of the-art water purification system and a more comfortable, inviting environment for patients. The open house also high-
lighted the arrival of the Basin’s new full-time nephrologist, Dr. Steven Turley. A nephrologist specializes in the care and treatment of kidneys. Turley began seeing patients in early July and monitors the
progress of the patients who use the dialysis centers. He also consults with patients who have electrolyte imbalances, hypertension, diabetes, and acid based disorders.
DWR event at Constitution Park to discuss Walk-In Access program The state Division of Wildlife Resources will host a picnic social Aug. 18 at Constitution Park for landowners who participate in the Walk-In Access program and those interested in learning about the program. The picnic will take place at the park’s south pavilion, 790 W. 200 South, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. “The Walk-In Access program pays landowners to allow public hunting and fishing access on private lands,” said Amy VandeVoort, who manages the program in the DWR’s northeastern region. “Recently payments for fishing access have increased, so we wanted to let landowners know of the program and the increased opportunities, as well as thank those already in the program,” she said. VandeVoort explained how landowners might benefit from
the program. “Landowners benefit from enrolling in Walk-In Access not only from the payments, but also from having law enforcement officers checking on their property to enforce rules and regulations,” she said. “Because users of Walk-In Access properties are required to register before using the property, landowners also gain
stream-side property by having neighbors combine lands, and in doing so giving anglers access to a longer stretch of stream,” VandeVoort said. “The social is a good opportunity for interested landowners to learn more about the program from the landowners who are in it, as well as from the division,” she said.
Price river sees flash flooding A cloudburst above Gordon Creek recently turned the Price River into a chocolate-brown torrent that surged over its banks into two bottomland fields in southwest Price. The thunderstorm produced a blinding downpour at about 1 p.m., limiting visibility on Gordon Creek Road to just a few yards.That was enough to
Helper places fourth at state tournament After a grueling schedule, injuries and a long season, the Helper American Legion team concluded their season after competing in the Utah State Tournament. (Taylorsville nipped West 5-4 for the tournament title at Kearns.) After posting wins against Tooele and Cyprus and one loss against Kearns over the past week, Helper went up against West and lost 13-3.The game was much closer than the final scored indicated as Helper was down 3-2 in the fifth inning, according to coach Jeff Cisneros. Jaren McCourt was on the hill for Helper and for five innings he limited the West team to three runs. “McCourt did a very good job in containing the powerful West lineup,” Cisneros said. The Helper team concluded their season with a fourth place finish in the state tournament
by having more regulated use of their land.” To qualify for the program, landowners need at least a quarter-mile of stream, 40 acres of riparian (stream-side and wetland vegetation), or 80 acres of uplands. “A new opportunity, currently going through the division’s public input process, could open enrollment to those with less
and finished with a record of 24-9. “I was very proud of our team and how they competed for the week and for the whole season,” Cisneros explained. “We had a very young squad this year with only four seniors.” With the majority of the team being young, Cisneros said the experience in the tournament and during the season will help the team for next year. “A lot of the young guys have seen valuable time this summer and it should pay off when next season rolls around,” he said. The team did experience some problems before reaching the state tournament. Injuries late in the season helped leave the team short-handed during the tournament, Cisneros said. Sun Advocate

raise the river, already swollen with runoff, high enough to flood the fields. The storm could have been worse had it hit just a few miles north. Jeff Richens, General Manager of the Price River Water Improvement District,

Suspect runs from cops, arrested after foot chase Carbon County Sheriff’s deputies pursued a fleeing suspect in a car chase that led on a winding route over dirt and paved roads around and through Price recently. It ended as a foot race off Carbonville Road with the suspect, 35-year-old Mike Ashby of Richfield being taken into custody and booked into jail on a long list of charges. According to Sheriff James Cordova, when deputy Isaiah Palmer tried to stop Ashby on Upper Coal Creek road, Ashby sped off, turning north on a dirt
road leading to Airport Road. The pursuit continued on Airport Road to another dirt road near the animal hospital, where Ashby turned off onto another dirt track. That eventually led to 800 North in Price, down Cedar Hills Drive and 100 North to Carbonville Road. At about 760 West, Ashby abandoned the car and took off on foot, and lost the race. The sheriff said that at no time did speed in the populated area exceed 50 mph. Sun Advocate
Forest Service to host tours of Swett Ranch The Ashley National Forest will host a day of self-guided tours and youth activities Aug. 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Swett Ranch. The ranch is located off U.S. Highway 191 near picturesque Red Canyon and Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Youth activities are still being planned, but will include learning to rope calves and creating a personalized “brand.” A self-guided walking tour will also be offered that will lead visitors through the buildings and equipment for a fun and historical learning experience. Members of the Swett family will be on location during this event to visit with the public. The Swett Ranch, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is an example of an early pioneer homestead. It remains as peaceful and serene today as it was 100 years ago. Elizabeth Swett, Oscar Swett’s mother, homesteaded the family’s original claim in
1909 because her son was too young to file himself. Over the next 58 years Oscar Swett acquired an additional 246 acres and ran approximately 200 head of cattle and 150 head of sheep on his ranch and surrounding lands. The ranch was operated using hand tools and horsepower, long after trucks and tractors were available. The Swett family put up 200 to 300 tons of hay each year using only horse drawn equipment. Native logs and lumber were used in construction of buildings and fences. The majority of the structures remain in the original location. Oscar Swett and his wife Emma raised nine children surrounded by only a few neighbors and the resources of the Ashley National Forest. They survived every challenge thrown at them except progress. They were the last to sell out in 1968, shortly before Oscar Swett’s death.

Blue Saige wins showdown By CJ McManus Sun Advocate With spot-on vocal harmony and a true talent for original material, Blue Saige blew away local audiences and judges at the Texaco Country Showdown in Price. The July 29 win ensures the Duchesne County group a chance to compete at the Utah State Final, moving the trio of Mondi Taylor, Mindee Zager, Deanne Quick one step closer to their musical dreams and a $100,000 payday. “A love for music brought us together,” explained Deanne, during a post showdown interview with the Sun Advocate. “There is no main vocalist, we all bring something to the dynamics of this group and that makes us special.” Longtime friends Taylor and Quick got the idea to form a music group with their new buddy Zager when all three women were sang at a funeral. As luck would have it, last year’s showdown was right around the corner and the new trio put together some songs over the course of a week and signed up for the competition in Vernal. “We didn’t even place last year,” Taylor said. “But we really did learn a lot. That first experience in Vernal showed us that we were on the right track with both our singing and songwriting.” In addition to great vocal harmonies, all three women play guitar, something that gives Blue Saige an earthy, down home quality found in wildly successful groups like The Band Perry and The Dixie Chicks. “We all just really love music,” Quick said. While the women would not discuss their ages, it’s apparent that this is an eclectic group of women sitting at very different stops along life’s train ride. Taylor has raised four children and owns a boom-
Manila receives $80,000 from CIB for fire station The state Community Impact Board suspended the rules of its regularly scheduled project review meeting Thursday to approve an additional funding request of $80,000 for Manila’s new fire station. The town of Manila originally requested and received $638,000 for the project on Jan. 11. The funds were approved as a $319,000 zero-percent interest loan to be paid in 30 years and a $319,000 grant. Thursday’s additional funds were approved as a $40,000 zero-percent interest loan to be paid in 30 years and a $40,000 grant. The two requests will be combined into a single financing package totaling $718,000. The new financing will be structured as a $359,000 zero-percent interest loan to be paid in 30 years and a $359,000 grant. “The town of Manila has built up its existing firefighting suppression equipment and vehicles for the safety of both Manila and Daggett County residents,” said Duchesne County Commissioner Kent Peatross, who represents the Uintah Basin Association of Governments on the CIB. “This fire station will serve an estimated 1,200 square miles in Daggett County,” Peatross said. “The nearest fire station to Manila is 50 miles away.” The Community Impact Board awards grants and low-interest loans to cities, towns and counties impacted by mining and the extraction of oil and gas on federal land. Projects funded by the CIB are intended to benefit rural Utah by creating safer, more livable communities.
ing construction company in the Uintah Basin. She will hunt anything and loves the outdoors. With a swagger and smile, she appears to be the wild child of this trio. Zager on the other hand has three children and wouldn’t be caught dead in hunter orange. She teaches dance in the Vernal and Duchesne areas and seems to be the most softhearted of The group has the three. no leader, but Quick exudes the wisdom of a matriarch, having raised eight children before joining Blue Saige. She seems to mother her bandmates just a little and works as a hospice nurse in Duchesne County; work that has become a vital part of the trio’s success. “We take the time to go out and sing to everyone of my hospice patients before they pass,” she said. “It’s a small
gift, but one that works both ways. They seem to enjoy the music very much and means a great deal to us to deliver some joy during a difficult time.” All three members of Blue Saige raised their families before getting involved with the group and because of that they all now have the necessary time to dedicate themselves to their music; something they all say might be impossible with a home full of children. “All we do is work and play music,” said Taylor, with a glowing smile. “We finally have the time to play.” And the trio of Blue Saige is making that time count. This year they came in second at the Vernal showdown before winning in Price. They will play Friday at the Duchesne County Fair and plan to release their first CD in the next month.

for the ball and had to worry about a nearby fence. Ogden had more bad news for the Vernal fans to read. Quarnberg singled in Baird, who crossed the plate and put Ogden down by one run at 3-2. Peterson put a ball deep into left field that was caught by a Vernal outfielder. However, Beauerle scored to tie up the game at 3-3. A few minutes later Von Collins singled in Quarnberg with Ogdenâ€™s first lead of the contest at 4-3. Udy doubled, but two runners were stranded on the base paths after Collingwood flew out. The pitcher from Ogden struck out Vernalâ€™s first two batters Johnson and Shiflett in the bottom of the fourth and then Murray singled. Ogdenâ€™s second baseman made a good play to end the inning. Ogden added three more runs in the top of the fifth for a 6-3 lead and Murray made a super play to keep Ogden from pocketing two more counters. Tracy singled up the middle, Baird was walked and McFarland singled in Tracy and Baird for a 6-3 lead. Phelps was walked, but Murray settled down with back-to-back strikeouts of Clemens and Peterson. Von Collins hit a shot to the pitcher, Murray, who fell down, but recovered quickly and made a throw to first base to end the inning and saved some runs. Ogden hit three straight double plays in the final three
innings to shut down any comeback hopes by Vernal. Coonis walked in the bottom of the fifth and was forced out at second. Smuin reached on a fielderâ€™s choice, but Rich grounded out at first and Smuin was forced at second for a double play. Mansfield got on base on an error to lead off the bottom of the sixth. Braden Olsen singled and a balk advanced runners to second and third. Canet struck out and then Murray flew out and the runner at third was out for a double play. Adam Labrum led off Vernalâ€™s last hopes with a walk in the bottom of the seventh and B. Coonis singled. Ryan Smuin hit a shot over the center fielderâ€™s head. However, Labrum was tagged out at home and Coonis was out on his return trip to third base for Ogdenâ€™s third double play. Ogden scored three runs in both the sixth and seventh innings to take a 12-3 win over Vernal. Two runs were scored on walks in a bases-loadedsixth for a 9-3 edge. Baird, McFarland singled in runs and a poor throw on a bunt allowed McFarland to produce Ogdenâ€™s final run. Members of the Vernal team are Johnny Thompson, Robbie Coonis, Brennen Johnson, Braxton Coonis, Max Mansfield, Garrett Canet, Stetson Thompson, Brent Shiflett, Xander Coonis, Jayden Murray, Garrett Rich, Adam Labrum, Ryan Smuin, Tyler Young, Branden Olsen and Kyler Shiflett.

Fish With A Head Whenever I pass through Current Creek area on my way to Salt Lake City I think of the now torn down Current Creek Cafe. The area was famous for its rainbow trout that were usually caught by fishermen, but if you were hungry or didnâ€™t have a fishing license a trout dinner was available at the Current Creek Cafe. Usually when my parents and I journeyed to Salt Lake City we would wait and have a meal in Salt Lake City. However, on one trip I talked my parents into stopping at Current Creek Cafe. I ordered a rainbow trout dinner and when the meal arrived the head was still attached and my food was staring at me. It made me feel kind of sad, but I didnâ€™t feel guilty. I simply removed its head so that it couldnâ€™t look at me while I was enjoying my dinner. ALDON RACHELE, Uintah Basin Standard

People Getting In The way I went to the Days of â€˜47 Rodeo in Salt Lake City last month and I had a front row seat, but a photographer and his wife (they took turns using the camera) shot pictures it seemed of everyone entered in the rodeo. They blocked my view of the action. I didnâ€™t complain because Iâ€™m a photographer and picture takers donâ€™t tell other photographers to get out of the way. I just canâ€™t pick on a fellow photo taker. His wife didnâ€™t get my hint when I told her that she didnâ€™t need to do all that jumping around and could sit still and â€œlet the broncs and bulls come to her.â€? I am surprised that they didnâ€™t jump into the arena and get some â€œreal close-up photos.â€? Every time someone had a good ride, the guy shooting pictures did a â€œhip hip horrayâ€? better than any former cheerleader.
was a bit on the wild side.â€? Most former sports stars might have screamed â€œhow did you get my phone number?â€? Berry was â€˜too niceâ€™ of a guy to get ticked off at a fan/reporter. I interviewed Mickey Mantle years earlier and he was grumpy until I said, â€œMy dad taught me how to play baseball - tell me about how your dad did the same.â€? He smiled at me and turned into a nice guy (I often dreamed of going to New York City to see the ex-Yankee Mantle in person. I met Mantle instead in Vernal in 1975 and made sure he wasnâ€™t a grouch, which was tough job). â€˜Rasslingâ€™ Matches I have enjoyed watching pro wrestling over the years. My grandpa Salvatore Rachele got me started in the mat sport in the 1960s with matches between a Utah wrestler and a German matman who wore a spiked helmet. I would tell him that pro wrestling was fake and he would look at me as if I had said something stupid and say, â€œIt is no fake - they hurts one another!â€? KSL-TV would broadcast pro wrestling matches from Social Hall Avenue where KSL was located at the time in the 1960s. Tom Bradshaw, KSLâ€™s Weatherman, broadcast the
bouts and would often join in the action on the mat. There was a local wrestler in Roger Mackay, who was a Granite High School graduate. He had a jaw that was like a rock. The Swedish Angel was also a popular Utah matman. He later on lived in Myton, Utah. He was so ugly that I would swear I saw him scaring Dracula, Frankensteinâ€™s monster and the Wolfman plus the Mummy as well as the Creature from the Black Lagoon on TVâ€™s Nightmare Theater. Another wrestler I enjoyed watching was Baron Von Raiske, who would force his opponent to quit a contest with â€œThe Claw.â€? Von Raiske claimed he was from Germany (actually from Omaha, Nebraska) and would leave his matches by doing the famous Nazi â€œGoose Stepâ€? walk. He would end his interviews by saying, â€œDat is all da people need to know!â€? Von Raiske (real name Jim Raiske) has a website where you can buy â€œThe Clawâ€? tshirt (worn by an unhappy looking non-athletic guy), autographed photos and action figures (choice of bloody or nonbloody). He is also available for personal appearances (sounds like a nice birthday present - beats a tie). In the off season the pro wrestler Raiske is a substitute teacher. I bet Mr. Raiske doesnâ€™t have any problems getting students to behave. They donâ€™t want to be introduced to his best friend - â€œThe Claw!

Rex Berry My Hero Rex Berry, who was known as the Carbon Comet in the 1940s, played football for Brigham Young University and later on for the NFLâ€™s San Francisco 49ers years before Joe Montana and Steve Young of Super Bowl fame. Berry was also a pitcher along with my uncle Eldon Rachele in 1939. They both teamed up for a 2-0 shutout of Smithfield in an American Legion ball game. Berry was over 80-years-old and didnâ€™t mind me talking to him on the phone (his phone number in Provo wasnâ€™t unlisted). He said, â€œYouâ€™re uncle had a â€˜heckâ€™ of a fastball, but

Jayden Murray of Vernal hopes that he doesn’t fall down while pitching the baseball. Murray struck out several batters and made a fine defensive play in a game vs. Ogden in the first round of the Pacific Southwest Regionals in Vernal last week.
Vernal’s Braxton Coonis (right) beats the baseball to the plate. The Ogden catcher waits to pocket the ball and keeps any more runs from scoring.
Vernal takes early lead, but Ogden rallies for win By Aldon Rachele Uintah Basin Standard First the good news - Vernal’s 14-year-old all-stars led 3-0 after one inning in a first round game in the Pacific Southwest Regionals in Vernal vs. Ogden’s team on Tuesday evening. Now the bad news - Ogden rallied behind a defense that produced several double plays and an offense that slugged key hits to beat Vernal 12-3. In other first round games the Southern California team (El Segundo in Los Angeles County) beat Murray, 10-0; Arizona defeated Nevada and Northern California beat Central California.Teams
from Utah, Arizona, Nevada and California competed in the meet in Vernal. Vernal got busy with the bats as all its runs - three - being scored in the bottom of the first inning. Shiflett led off with a walk and moved to second base on a shot into right field by Jayden Murray, who was also Vernal’s starting pitcher. Braxton Coonis ripped out a double and moved to third base on a play at home plate by Ogden. Sheflett and Murray scored for a 2-0 Vernal lead. The Vernal team wasn’t done as Coonis just beat a throw to home plate after a ground out at first base by
Stetson Thompson for a Vernal advantage of 3-0. Garrett Rich continued the hot Vernal attack with a double, but was stranded when Max Mansfield struck out to end the inning. Vernal’s Murray worked a quick top of the second by getting Carter Baird to pop up, and struck out Darius McFarland, but after a single by Chase Beauerle the inning ended on a fly ball out by Troy Quarnberg. Brennen Johnson singled into left field in the bottom of the second for Vernal and Shiflett was walked. Murray flew out, but Tyler Young hit a blooper just over the head of
the Ogden pitcher and out of the reach of the team’s second baseman. Ogden’s pitcher solved the bases-loaded jam by whiffing the final Vernal batter Coonis to get out of the inning. Jayden Peterson of Ogden led off the top of the third with a single, but Vernal’s hurler Murray went one-two-three as he struck out Von Collins and chopped down Braiden
Collingwood and Conner Udy on fly ball outs to shutout the Ogden squad. Vernal’s Garrett Rich was in the right place to nab a hot missile by Udy for an out. Vernal had a base runner in the top of the third when an error placed Mansfield on base on an error by Ogden. However, Mansfield was forced at second base on a ball hit by Canet. The Vernal team lost its lead
when Ogden scored four runs in the top of fourth for a 4-3 edge. Kole Tracy led off with a single and Baird was hit by the pitcher, Murray, who then struck out McFarland.

One athlete is a bit tired while girls soccer players work on kicking the all important ball in tryouts last week in Roosevelt.
About 30 girls are out for soccer according to Union High School coach LoaKay Bowthorpe. The squad had its first week of practice. Last year’s soccer team won its first playoff game vs. Manti in a shootout after overtime. Union lost to Juan Diego in a quarterfinals match. “We have been doing basic skills and taking part in a morning clinic that is being taught by three soccer players from Wales in England,” she said. “In the afternoon we do drills and scrimmage to get ready for the first week of the season.” Union will play Morgan on Wednesday, Aug. 10 and will host Carbon in their first home match on Friday, Aug. 12. The match will start at 4 p.m. in Roosevelt. Last season Union posted a 7-8-1 record that included wins over South Summit, 9-0; Rowland Hall, 2-0; Carbon, 11-0, 5-0; American Leadership Academy, 3-1, 4-1; Manti, 1-0, (two overtimes). Union finished third in Region 10 behind Park City and Wasatch. The 7-8-1 mark is Union’s best ever record.
