Tridell-Lapoint water meeting boils over


By Dustin Hughes Uintah Basin Standard The Tridell-Lapoint Water Improvement District meeting turned heated Wednesday, as board members and the district’s manager clashed over personnel and infrastructure issues. The sparks first flew as members voted on approving a loan to conduct a master plan for the district. Members approved taking on a $25,000 loan from the Department of Drinking Water to conduct the study. The loan would be paid back over five years at 0 percent interest, said Jerry

CIB funding would not be guaranteed and would need to show investment by the district to have a good chance at approval. Also, the CIB board would not be making decisions until later, and the district needed to get a start on the study, Goodrich said. The study is needed to determine the current condition of the district and identify any deficiencies, Goodrich said. The

Volunteers come out to spruce up Roosevelt By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard The first round of cleaning up Roosevelt City, as planned by the Roosevelt Beautification Commit-

tee, finished with an wham not a whimper Saturday. Volunteers swelled to the largest number to attend a cleaning so far, according to Aaron Weight, Roosevelt City councilman. “This is our last clean-up of the year,” Weight said. “We’re excited we have had such a good turn out through all three cleanups and especially today. We have our largest turnout of the year.” Weight expects to pick up the efforts again in the spring and continue to work throughout the city to clean-up garbage and debris. “Next year we will have a larger effort,” Weight said. “We’ll have more time to organize and I anticipate continuing these

efforts as long as I am on the council.” The Roosevelt 11th Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints participated in good numbers in the Saturday clean-up. “We were trying to come up with a ward service project about the time the city started doing the clean-ups,” said 11th ward Bishop Keith Eddington. “The other two Saturdays we had conflicts with other ward activities, so we thought we would just focus on this one.” Volunteers worked at both the west and east ends of the business district during the cleaning. Eddington thanked those who came out to help.

By Deborah Tracy Uintah Basin Standard Although contract renewals for both the district’s superintendent and business manager was an agenda item for the Aug. 7 Duchesne School Board meeting at Roosevelt Junior High, the item was moved to executive session for discussion. Contacted the next day, Board President Kim Harding said the board had voted to extend the contracts for both Superintendent David Brotherson and Dee Miles, business administrator, for two years, and also approved a raise similar to what the board approved for teachers in the district Tuesday evening. Harding declined to release the dollar figure for both Brotherson and Miles. School district employee salaries are public information in Utah. Harding noted that he knew the information was public record, but he said “It’s just not my responsibility as president of the board to say what somebody is making.” Harding noted the information was “on the Internet,” but said he didn’t know the Website or where on the Internet to find that information. Harding said that because the amount of the salary was discussed in executive session he believed he was not able to disclose the amount of the contracts. Calls to Brotherson’s office were fielded by district secretary Joni Fitzgerald on Wednesday. She said she did not have the information but would attempt to reach Miles, who was out of the office for training. She replied by email on Aug. 9, confirming the contracts were renewed for two years and each man received “an equivalent of a

step increase in salary.” No salary figures were included in the message. She further said that both Brotherson and Miles were at the “delegate assembly” and would be out of town until Aug. 13 and as soon as she could she would get the information to the Basin Standard. Telephone messages were left for both Brotherson and Miles requesting the figures, but were not returned by press deadline on Aug. 13. Attorney Carol Lear, director of school law at the Utah State Office of Education, confirmed that the information must be released according to Utah law. Referring to the superintendent, she said, “He’s a public employee, so it would be public information.” Lear gave reference to the requirement in Utah Code, under the Government Records Access and Management Act, 63G-2301. Lear noted that if Harding had directed the Basin Standard to a specific, official website to access the information, that would suffice, but a vague “on the Internet,” was not sufficient. When Mark Petersen of the Office of Education was asked if he knew of an Internet site with that type of information, he noted that perhaps Harding was referring to the site “Utah’s Right to Know,” which lists public employee salaries. This list is compiled by the Salt Lake Tribune and MediaOne of Utah. The website,, specifically states the site “makes no representation, expressed or implied, that all information is accurate.” Regarding Duchesne County specifically, it noted that on March 27, 2012, the information was updated to reflect FY2010 figures.


at Westland’s side to getting this building done when we wanted it,” he said. Several motions for payment of different amounts were floated and failed to pass. What finally did pass was a motion to pay 70 percent of the total anticipated overage, or $260,048.60. Part of the agreement to pay this amount to the contractor was that the money would first go to local suppliers owed. Westland will absorb a loss of about $117,000. Houghton said it was more than he wanted to lose, but noted that he values the working relationship that Westland has with the district. There were three votes to approve the payment – Gregory Wheeler, Bruce Timothy and Doug Swasey. Harding voted against, and Gordon Moon, vice president of the board, abstained from the vote. Harding further explained his vote on Wednesday. “I voted against it mainly just because I would like to see a little more documentation; but I wasn’t real upset,” Harding said. In other business, the district approved unanimously to continue funding employee “steps and lanes,” a system which provides for a schedule of raises for teachers and administrators, as well as covering the increase in health insurance costs for teachers. With that passage, it was noted that teachers were in favor of ratifying negotiations with the district for new contracts for the 2012- 2013 school year. The district also approved the purchase of a robotic calling system to be used by teachers when they need a substitute for their class. This technology will be a big improvement for both teachers and the district office staff, noted Joni Fitzgerald, district secretary. The system will cost approximately $8,000 per year, with an initial set-up fee of approximately $4,000. There will also be staff time needed to administer and manage the system once it’s in place. It was noted the new system would probably not become operational until January.

allowed to start, weeks later than the scheduled start date. Rather than shut down the project causing more serious delays and possibly incurring lawsuits, Westland stepped up and incurred the expense of the overrun costs, including paying the last several weeks of the masonry contractor’s payroll. Large amounts are due to various suppliers in the area. Houghton told the board that when there’s a lot of money involved, “Automatically everyone wants to point a finger,” but he didn’t believe anyone did anything specifically wrong. “It’s part of the risk of construction,” he said. He also noted that the bid to secure the job included a very lean 2 percent contingency fund. The low cushion was set to bring the cost of building the school to an amount acceptable to the school district’s board. The second lowest quote received for the masonry portion of the project was significantly higher, in the range of $600,000 more. “A lot of contractors could have stopped the job, I believe you hired me to jump in and get it done,” Houghton said. The board expressed concern with the large amount of money associated with the overage. “I want to know where every dime went on this project,” said Kim Harding, board president. Both Houghton and Dee Miles, business administrator for the district, explained that would be a very time-consuming, labor intensive job for both the contractor and the district. The mason still has a small punch list of items to complete construction, Houghton said. “We are talking a lot of damn money,” Harding said. “We are put here by the taxpayers and we need to hold people accountable,” he added later. “I did what I thought was right,” Houghton told the board. He acknowledged that he expected to absorb part of the cost. Doug Swasey said as a business person he could see the contractor’s side of the problem as well. “I’m looking

Dear Editor I just wanted to add to the comments by Dr. Dale Larsen and Diane Hardy reference the Echo Drive In. Leland and Larue Stevenson (Renae Chapman and Nick Stevenson’s parents) from Altamont built the Echo Drive In. However it was before 1960, possibly as early as 1957. They also owned the Roosevelt and Uinta Theaters which they had purchased from Howard and Afton Harrison(another third generation Basin family). The other drive in, called the Basin Drive In, was constructed within a year or two of the Echo by Themis and Georgina Costuros, who also owned a five and dime store about three doors north of the Uinta Theater. The Basin Drive In was located where Big-O Tire is now. Leland Stevenson subse-

quently purchased the Basin Drive in from Costorus and, as I recall, it was sold to someone in Emery County. It was rebuilt, I think in Huntington, not too long ago. Someone told me it was still in operation. I spent about three years working for the Stevensons as a projectionist and have many fond memories of all three theaters. Larry and Charlot Zufelt started about the same time I did and eventually ended up owning the theaters. The Stevensons employed quite a few of us high school kids and were very strict, but great people to work for. I was amazed when I read the story in the Standard about the conversion to digital of the projection equipment! What a change from what we went through to provide two shows a night!

For Sale: town of Woodside WOODSIDE --The words in the real estate ad sort of jump off the page: “Sheriff, Judge and Executioner Wanted For the Town of Woodside.” That’s an eyecatcher. The body copy of the ad goes on to say that the acreage of what was once a bustling little railroad town in Emery County is for sale through Bridge Realty. Woodside has gone from a population of about 300 people a century ago to a single defunct gas station and a few free-range llamas. “They’ve got food there and they’ve got water. They know how to eat and how to drink,” said realtor Mike Metzger. The challenge of selling what was once a town is a new experience for him, and the dilapidated structures visible from US 6 don’t “present” well. But as the saying goes,

The Summer Olympics have offered up hours of riveting TV. Certainly there is an Olympic sport that appeals to everyone – I love watching swimmers, because I took second place in a regional competition for the butterfly stroke when I was a wee bairn of 13. I know how hard that stroke is, and I love the simple beauty of it. I was amazing in the water, but put me on dry land and ... well, after puberty hit, I didn’t do so well. My feet outgrew my legs and my hands were constantly tucked under my armpits, arms forever crossed to hide chest bumps. My focus was splintered between winning and personal form. Appearance was everything, not because I was vain, but solely because my body was so foreign to me. Who in the heck wanted chest bumps anyway? They were embarrassing, especially to my old buddy Bart, who couldn’t look me in the face anymore. Team sports were torture. Not playing as a team – it was the selection process. Ordinary likable kids chosen to be

team captains by our stout, hairy-lipped gym teacher began calling out names, “Dusty ... Sam ... Starlie,” and the posturing began in earnest. No one wanted to be left on the outside. Frantically I’d lean forward, trying to catch their eye, smiling shyly, pleadingly, flirtatiously, whatever I had to do. Most of the time I’d be left among the few. Occasionally I’d experience the soul squashing – last pick. Somehow I lived through it all, junior high and even high school where we dressed in our gym uniforms: white t-shirts, navy shorts and white sneakers. We ran out to the field – all look-a-likes – where our whistle wielding P.E. teacher (the same mustachioed lady) waited to torture us. By the time my body seemed my own again I hadn’t improved athletically. Hadn’t joined a team, didn’t take gymnastics, forgot how to jump rope. I was not the competitive sort, and I never, no never, sacrificed myself for the ball. I became a last pick. Getting left out taught me nothing. If a team captain caught my eye they saw a flash of angry resentment – go ahead – don’t pick me. I dare you! Dare you! Of course I was dying to be picked. We all are. Inclusion helps us to feel valued, needed, wanted. It also keeps us interested. Case in point: Ten years ago I joined a weight loss group. I was good at weight loss, a star performer. Months went by, close to goal I started to slip, struggling I asked the gals in charge if I could take on a responsibility in the club. They hemmed, hawed, looked at each other. “We’ll see,” was the answer. When I was growing up “We’ll see,” translated into; if Mars, Pluto and Venus veer off course and align in a perfect triangular pattern or Big Foot turns up at Hogle Zoo. It meant when hell froze over, or when McDonald’s hangs a disco ball and hires a disc jockey. It meant zilch, nada ... it wasn’t going to happen. “We’ll see” meant for some reason the word no could not be said to my face. I needed inclusion, needed responsibility, not a “we’ll see.” Because I was not needed nor valued, I turned away. Lost interest, stopped participating, stopped coming, dropped out. Without a support system in place I gradually became less responsible for self and forgot my

goal. Heck, I’ve been so tempted by inclusion I’ve taken on second and third jobs. Being wanted can be exhausting. Sometimes I’ve applied for jobs just because I think there’s a possibility I’ll be picked, and I get that same old feeling, “Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!” A few extra years on this old planet has taught me not to hate the team captains anymore. And self-responsibility is more important than inclusion. Today I’m most comfortable with the tight knit group who are always, undeniably inclusive: me, myself and I. So, no matter if I’m included or excluded by family, friends, associates or auxiliaries, I’ve come to realize ... I’m OK, even by myself.

“No town can fail of beauty, though its walks were gutters and its houses hovels, if venerable trees make magnificent colonnades along its streets.” -- Henry Ward Beecher Proverbs, 1887 And so, the future beauty of Roosevelt is in part assured through the legacy of one of its former mayors, Hollis G Hullinger. Hullinger died in 2011. Estate money left by Hollis Hullinger was given to the city of Roosevelt “to do some project and use it as they saw fit,” said his son, John Hullinger. Roosevelt City invested the money in new trees along State Street, a project that Johnsaid his father would appreciate. They were planted earlier this spring. “He and Ellen Rawlings used to walk up and down the streets of Roosevelt and pick up trash,” John said. “He was

always trying to improve our poor little town.” Hollis Hullinger, originally of Naples, moved to Roosevelt in 1938. “He was quite serious a lot of times wanting to get things done,” said his son Gib Hullinger. “He started his mornings at 5 or 5:30 every day. He was busy, he never stopped.” According to Gib, Hollis had a good sense of humor, too. “We were riding with him out on a back country road going somewhere.” Gib said. “He was always in a hurry. We were going along the crest of a hill and all of a sudden it went down a dugway. He was going too fast to make the turn and he went right off that hill traveling through the sagebrush. Down the hill a piece the road turned back around and he just caught the road there. He said, ‘Don’t ever tell your mother,’” according to Gibb.“It didn’t hurt the car.” The trees along State




New trees planted along State street this year were made possible, in large part, through a gift from the estate of former Roosevelt Mayor Hollis Hullinger. Some of his children are part of that legacy, Gib Hullinger, Dennis Garner, Amelia Hullinger Garner, Korinne and John Hullinger. Street stand as a legacy to one of Roosevelt’s early residents and his family. “At some point I hope there can be little plaque that says,

“This is a project partially donated by Hollis Hullinger, Mayor of Roosevelt City 1974 to 1978,” John said.

Veterans should know they may be entitled to credit for extra earnings for military service, but they need to go to a Social Security office to get it. It may make a substantial difference in Social Security monthly payments upon retirement. The nearest Social Security Administration office for Uintah Basin vets is located at 400 S. 200 East, Salt Lake City. A military veteran may qualify for a higher Social Security payment because of military service for active duty anytime from 1957 through 2001; and this may

on Main Street with two other people when a taxi passed him close to Miners Hospital. The taxi stopped and two men, described as angry and screaming, got out, Ryan said. The two from the taxi claimed one of the pedestrians threw the beer bottle at the vehicle. The three men who were walking denied throwing a bottle, Ryan said. The suspect then punched one of the pedestrians, the captain said. It was not clear whether the person who reportedly threw the punch

was the taxi driver. The victim suffered a cut to the bridge of his nose, caused by the assailant hitting his glasses, according to Ryan. The confrontation occurred approximately nine hours before another altercation in the same vicinity. A pedestrian gave the driver an obscene gesture, the driver stopped, the two exchanged words and the driver punched the pedestrian in the face several times, the police said. Park Record

be as much as $1,200 per year. According to information provided to the Basin Standard BY WHO, this benefit is not automatic and a veteran must ask for it in person and must bring their DD-214 to the Social Security office. The background is that in January 2002, the Defense Appropriations Act stopped the special extra earnings that had been credited to military service personnel. Military service in calendar year 2002 and future years no longer qualifies for these special extra earning credits. Since 1957, those with military service earnings for ac-


tive duty paid Social Security taxes on those earnings. Since 1988, inactive duty service in the Armed Forces reserves, such as weekend drills, have also been covered by Social Security. Under certain circumstances, special extra earnings for military service from 1957 through 2001 can be credited to a veteran’s record for Social Security purposes. These extra earnings may help someone qualify for Social Security or increase the amount of the entitlement benefit. Special extra earnings credits are granted for peri-


ods of active duty or active duty for training. Special extra earnings credits are not granted for inactive duty training. From 1968 through 2001, you do not need to do anything to receive these extra credits. After 2001, there are no special extra earnings credits for military service. For more information and whether you are qualified, contact the Social Security office for specific details and assistance. Or, visit the SSA website for more information about this benefit: www.ssa. gov/retire2/military.

study would help officials in the district, which serves about 479 customers and areas including Lapoint, Tridell and near Gusher, plan on how to bring the system up to speed for the future. The study should be complete by next spring, Goodrich said. The study and its timing are so important because the second phase of the Lapoint Park is due to be completed sooner than expected, Goodrich said. He said he feared the infrastructure of the system would not be able to handle the demands of the park once it is expanded. Earlier last year board members approved selling a connection to the park for $5300. Wednesday night, Goodrich told the board the park would use the equivalent of 10 connections. The board should have charged $53,000 instead and be in a better position when it comes to funding improvments. “This board made a serious mistake,” he told members about their decision last year. Board member Rex McKee said the board only charged for one connection because they did not want to put a burden on taxpayers. Members said they were unaware the money for the connection from the park would be paid with CIB funding – not from taxpayers. “Nobody said the money would come from CIB,” Clin-

On top of Leigh and Raver’s departures, fans will be left reeling when they have to say goodbye to McSteamy. Dane’s departure won’t be as abrupt since he will be featured in a few of the upcoming season’s new episodes to wrap up his character’s story before moving on to do more work in the film industry. This opens the door to new cast additions, which show-runner Shonda Rhimes has managed to

handle well in the past, and the two incoming actors are bringing plenty of previous success on the small screen with them. Gaius Charles, who is best known for his role in NBC’s “Friday Night Lights,” will help fill the void left by the departing stars. He will be joined by Camilla Luddington in a recurring role through the new season. Fans will recognize her as Kate Middleton in Lifetime’s 2011 telefilm “William & Kate” as well as from her arcs in “True Blood” and “Californication.”

Healing from cuts

HEALING FROM CUTS: ABC’s top-rated medical drama is on the cusp of major change now that the network has announced even more comings and goings at Seattle Grace. “Grey’s Anatomy” fans were already devastated by last season’s finale episode that saw many of the characters go down in a plane crash that killed Dr. Lexie Grey (played by Chyler Leigh) and left Dr. Mark “McSteamy” Sloan (Eric

No commercial oil shale or tar sands operations in the United States, although a number exist in the global market. Kempenich questioned the absence of public concern regarding the impact of extraction on air and water cited in the resolution other than comments inserted by the industry. McKee explained subsequent analyses beyond the PEIS would address environmental concerns. Ratification of the resolution passed unanimously.

The drug-fuelled drama continues for schoolteacher-turned kingpin Walter White and his lackey Jesse Pinkman in a new episode of “Breaking Bad,” airing Sunday, Aug. 19, on AMC. This season’s debut of the Emmywinning series proved to be its most successful ever, with nearly three million viewers.

County Commission ratifies gravel pit zoning change By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard A second public hearing on Aug. 6 in the Duchesne County Commission Chambers regarding a proposed zoning change ordinance ended with the commission adopting Ordinance No. 12-302. The ordinance amends existing code Section 8-13-5-2 of Title 8: Extraction of Earth Products. Included in the new ordinance is language requiring dust suppression at rock and gravel extraction sites. Also included are measured distances of operation for a rock crushing operation. A rock crusher is required to be 1320 feet from any city, town, or residential use. The distance of the gravel pit boundary is required to be set back 660 feet from the edge of the proposed disturbed area to the closest city or town boundary line, the closest point of a residential, educational, public, religious, or commercial structure, or the closest point of enclosed area of a concentrated livestock facility. A set back is also described or 50 feet from a property line.

‘Sister Wives’ family challenges Utah bigamy law By Brian Skoloff Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Kody Brown and his four wives just want to live like any other family — free from the threat of being tossed in prison. But in Utah, just claiming to have more than one wife is a third-degree felony punishable by a sentence of up to five years. The polygamous family, stars of the TLC show “Sister Wives,” has sued Utah and the county they fled from, hoping to persuade a federal judge to overturn the state’s bigamy law as unconstitutional. The case could potentially decriminalize a way of life for tens of thousands of Mormon fundamentalists practicing polygamy, most of whom live in Utah. The state, meanwhile, has publicly said it won’t prosecute consenting adult polygamists unless there are other crimes involved, but insists the law doesn’t overreach. “It is not protected under religious freedom because states have the right to regulate marriage,” said Paul Murphy, spokesman for Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman in May announced he closed his criminal investigation into the Browns and simultaneously adopted the same state policy. The county then moved to have the lawsuit dismissed, claiming the Browns no longer have standing since they aren’t subject to prosecution. During a recent hearing in federal court in Salt Lake City, a judge repeatedly asked state prosecutors why he shouldn’t allow the case to move forward. U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said it appeared as if the state policy and the ensuing declaration by Utah County was “simply a ruse to avoid having the issue reviewed.” “What’s the policy reason behind this ... that would give assurances that similar prosecutions will not be pursued in the future?” Waddoups asked. “What about the next couple?” Assistant Attorney General Jerrold Jensen, arguing on behalf of Utah County, said there is none, but noted there are at least 30,000 practicing polygamists in Utah. “They are not being prosecuted,” Jensen said. “Utah County does not want to prosecute people for the practice of polygamy, period.” Jensen could not say the threat of prosecution of other polygamous families had been entirely removed, but reiterated state policy. “The plaintiffs here are not going to be prosecuted, therefore the case is moot,” he said. Earlier this year, Waddoups released Shurtleff and Gov. Gary Herbert from the case, citing the state policy that polygamists won’t be prosecuted for violating the bigamy law alone. He allowed the case to continue against

Altamont High moves in By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard Registration looms this Thursday and Friday. Construction dust still covers the floor, counter tops need to be installed, and countless details are yet to be complete. But, last Saturday was moving day for the tenants of the new Altamont High School. Students, faculty, administrators, and community volunteers joined in with carts, hand trucks, pickups and trailers to begin transporting stored classroom supplies to their new locations. “We got lots of help from the community,” said John Huitt, Altamont High School prinicipal. “There was a lot of stuff!” During transition to the new school the contents of entire classrooms were stored in the old AHS gym, which was saved as part of the new building. “A large majority was in the elementary school and we had three storage units outside the building, too,” Huitt said. People were busy carrying boxes, pushing loaded carts, and unloading trailers and trucks on Saturday. “I’d like to get as much in today as possible,” Huitt said. “I don’t know if we can get it all.” Altamont High senior

Produced water ponds permit tabled by Uintah County B1 - HEADER By Mary Bernard Vernal Express The Uintah County Commission tabled a request to add six evaporation ponds to an existing water treatment plant. Shelved was a conditional use permit request by Monarch Natural Gas, LLC’s to expand a facility on the Pariette Bench by 100 acres. “My concern is, if we approve a hundred acres of disposal ponds here today, we’re sending the wrong message,” said Mike McKee, county commissioner. County officials say the effect of emissions from evaporation ponds on air quality is the basis of their decision. Uintah County faces serious ambient air quality problems relating to wintertime ozone, which may drive the county into strict federal regulatory control. The county is currently in talks with the Environmental Protection Agency on the likelihood of being found in nonattainment. “It’s precisely because we support the oil and gas industry that we need to take a step back and look at what we’re doing,” said McKee. Monarch’s proposal was tabled indefinitely or until countywide guidelines for water treatment are developed. Commissioners said it was time for innovative mitigation measures to be applied to water treatment practices to protect air quality. It falls to the county to

develop these guidelines as no agency – the Utah Division of Air Quality, the Air Quality Board, or the Division of Oil, Gas, and Mining – has rules for the oil and gas industry specifically related to air quality. Emissions from evaporation ponds consist of volatile organic compounds, or part of the chemical platform from which ozone is produced. “We’re looking for solu-

For example, a Utah company, Environmentally Clean Systems, which operates in Newfield’s Monument Butte field, uses a process called electro-coagulation to clean flowback water.

US Forest Service proposes to streamline land management plan review process WASHINGTON – The U.S. Forest Service recently published in the Federal Register a proposed regulation that will improve the administrative review process for proposed projects and activities implementing land management plans. The proposed rule for an objections process will be applied to all projects and activities that implement land management plans requiring an environmental analysis or environmental impact statement. The publication of the proposed rule will provide a 30-day public comment opportunity. All comments received will be considered before a final rule is published.

“This proposal will result in better, more informed project decisions, better documentation of environmental effects of agency proposals, and reduced regulation for administrative reviews,” said US Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. The Forest Service has used a pre-decisional objection process for hazardous fuel reduction projects since 2004. This year Congress directed the Forest Service to also establish a pre-decisional objection process for other projects in lieu of the postdecisional appeal procedures in use with those projects since 1993.

Grant allows child abuse therapists to get specialized training The details about Penn State’s Jerry Sandusky and the father of the five Browns here in Utah have made more people aware about the devastating consequences of child sexual abuse. Now Utah children who have been abused or exposed to violence will soon have more mental health treatment options, thanks to a grant from the Verizon Foundation. A series of workshops, sponsored by the State Friends of the Children’s Justice Centers and coordinated through the Utah Children’s Justice Center (CJC) Program, will train providers on treatment models proven to reduce trauma and lower the risk of future abuse. Therapists from Davis, Weber, Utah, Box Elder, Cache and Uintah Counties attended the first workshop Aug. 9 at the Davis Children’s Justice Center in Farmington. Additional workshops will be held in Cedar City in September and Salt Lake City in November. “Unfortunately, special-


ized mental health services are limited in many areas of Utah, and without appropriate treatment, children can suffer lifelong emotional and physical consequences,” said Tracey Tabet, Children’s Justice Center program manager. “This program will help communities meet their mental health needs.” The $20,000 grant allows trainers from Primary Children’s Medical Center Safe and Healthy Families, the program’s medical partner, to conduct two-day workshops for 60 therapists throughout the state. The trainers will follow up with monthly phone consultations with therapists over the next year. “This was an ideal collaboration,” said Friends board member Nena Slighting. “The state Friends board and the Verizon Foundation are both committed to making sure that every community –big and small – has access to quality care for children.” The workshops teach “evidence-based treatment”

models, which have been proven to reduce traumatic stress and re-victimization. Research has also found that family members can be the key to a child’s recovery, so therapists are encouraged to involve non-offending caregivers in the treatment. “Many myths around therapy linger, including the assumption that any type of therapy works, and that therapy must be long term,” said Laura Seklemian, Children’s Justice Center training and development coordinator. “These models are very individualized, and often involve only 12 to 16 weeks of therapy.” This is the Children’s Justice Center’s first training initiative aimed specifically at mental health providers. The Verizon Foundation uses its resources and partnerships to address critical social issues, including access to health care services in underserved and rural communities. Every year, Utah’s Children’s Justice Centers pro-

B1 of Roosevelt couple Kindness gets man back on wheels By Deborah Tracy Uintah Basin Standard Sometimes a helping hand can make a difference in a life. There was no doubt that 2008 was a rough year for Roosevelt resident Jim Adams. The disabled man lost his wife in February of that year. North Eastern Services, which works with people with disabilities, helped him move into a group home so he would have the company of roommates, said Jimmy Bowker, a life skills instructor. Shortly after his move, his adult trike, chained in the backyard of the apartment, was stolen, “chain and all,” Bowker said. Despite trying for four years to save enough to get a replacement, lack of funding made that an elusive dream for Adams. So recently Bowker decided to check out the Facebook page of (435) Needs, a local group site that functions as something of a yard sale where local people post things they want to sell, things they want to buy, or things they want to trade. Within five hours of posting an ad seeking a low-cost adult trike for Adams, Bowker received an offer from Chris and Cami Billings of Roosevelt. The couple bought the bike, put it together and delivered it to North Eastern Services and a smiling Adams. Now, Adams is back to riding. “Jim enjoys going for bike rides, keeping himself fit,” Bowker said. The man also lets his friends ride it from time to time. North Eastern Services serves about 60 people in the greater Roosevelt area with disabilities. Started in

UBIC show proves the Basin has plenty of talent By Deborah Tracy Uintah Basin Standard A popular TV show proclaims “America Has Talent.” The Basin answered that claim with the local talent show on Aug. 1 as part of the Uintah Basin In Celebration festival. Winners from the talent show performed at the nighttime shows held at Constitution Park on Aug. 2, 3 and 4. There were 35 contestants in five categories. There was singing, there was dancing; there was instrument playing, there was a cowboy poetry recital; there was even a reenactment from a Shakepeare play. There was a three-minute limit for each talent selection. There were a few tears and more than a few (intentional) laughs. The packed auditorium at Roosevelt Junior High gave encouragement for all those who found the bravery to take the stage. Winners for 2012 were: Ages 5 to 8: First, Annikah Burnham; second, Abbie Jenkins; third, Oaklee Larsen and Payton Verduzco Ages 9 to 11: First, Madison Rowley; second, Evee Jessen and Kelten Campbell; third, Kamri Campbell Ages 12 to 14: First, Sarah Hicken; second, Abbie Ogden and David Paulsen; third, Kassidy Montgomery Ages 15 to 17: First, Krystin Anderson; second, Hannah Larsen; third, Brittley and Alyssa Weight Ages 18 and up: First, Kyle Felkins and Lindsey LeBaron; second, Mohea Sprouse; third, Lexi Blackham As emcee Roger Hullinger remarked during the show, the judges faced difficult choices with so many different talents presented in so many different genres spread across so many ages.

Alleviating first-day-of-school jitters


The first day of school can create butterflies in the stomachs of parents and children. However, following a few tips can alleviate feelings of nervousness. * Keep a routine. It is important for parents and students to get back into the school swing of things a few weeks prior to the first day of school. Start setting alarm clocks for the hour at which kids will have to awaken, and get them in the habit of rising from bed and starting the day. Try to schedule something to do each day that will be the inspiration for getting moving, such as school supply shopping. Take the carpool route to school, or find out where the school bus stop may be. These practice sessions will enable the family to decide how much time is needed to get ready in the morning and make changes accordingly. * Mention school frequently. Begin talking about school and what is necessary to prepare. Be sure to talk about the more enjoyable aspects of school, such as seeing friends, participating in extracurricular activities and even the change of scenery school provides. Mention the things your child may expect. Hearing about school frequently can reduce feelings of anxiety. * Visit the school. If this is the student’s first time entering this school, you can take advantage of orientation days for new students or schedule an individual visit to the school. A tour and a meeting with the principal will also assuage some fears of the unknown. This can also calm any apprehension parents may have, because they, too, will know the layout of the school, its policies, and who will be watching over their children. * Don’t be nervous. Children often look to their parents for guidelines on how to behave. A parent who is overly nervous or sad about the first day of school could make their kids nervous, too. Put on a brave face and keep any anxiety hidden until kids have left for school.

* Don’t make the bottom line the determining factor. Whether a student is in grade school, high school or college, his or her school supplies tend to undergo more than their fair share of wear and tear. So parents looking to save on school supplies should consider that when shopping. Though the less expensive backpack might seem more affordable, make sure it can withstand the test of time and all the wear and tear that comes with being a student’s backpack. If not, it will likely need to be replaced before the school year is out, which can end up costing more money in the long run.

* Coordinate with teachers ahead of time. Parents should consult their child’s teacher before school begins and throughout the year to determine if there are any special projects or reports coming up that require certain supplies. For instance, kids might need costly graphing calculators next semester. If parents are given advance notice, they can shop around to get the best deal. * Do your own homework. Parents of college-bound kids might think an e-reader would make the ideal gift, saving kids the trouble of lugging all those books around campus. However, parents should do their homework before making any such purchases. That’s because not all textbooks are available as e-books, and kids might end up having to buy hard copies of their textbooks anyway. Before kids head off to college, examine their first semester schedule and then look online for each class’ corresponding syllabus. If most of their required textbooks are available as e-books, then an e-reader might make a great gift. If not, think of something else.



Unique ways to save on school supplies * Sign up for coupons on retailer Web sites. When consumers purchase a product online, prior to finalizing the purchase many online retailers ask consumers to check a box if they would like to receive e-mail newsletters and coupons. Parents who sign up for such newsletters and coupons can save substantial amounts of money and might even be privy to special sales not available to the general public. In some cases, it’s not even necessary to make a purchase to receive the newsletters and coupons. Shoppers simply visit the Web site of their favorite online retailers and sign up to be notified of any deals or sales.

If you have questions, we have answers!

* Be prepared. Gather supplies, practice the driving route, lay out clothes, make lunch the night before, get a good night’s rest, and set the alarm clock. Knowing all of the controllable factors are handled can ease the mind of parents and students.

8 ways to save on school expenses Every year parents spend significant amounts of money on school expenses. While there’s not much parents can do about tuition, there are ways to save on additional expenses, including clothing. Restocking a student’s wardrobe can be costly, but savvy Moms and Dads can lessen the blow in a variety of ways.

children. Kids who are tired or hungry can be prone to meltdowns. Pack snacks and drinks to be on the safe side. Some stores offer early bird special sales, which can make shopping once the doors open even more advantageous. 8. Do some online shopping, too. Once the children have gone to bed for the evening, do some uninterrupted online shopping. Comparison shop and figure out if buying online is a good deal after factoring in shipping costs.

Make the most of the opportunity to save and back to class, March both parents and -children not reduce stress when shopping. Wednesday, 7, 2012 Vernalmay Express be looking forward to school shopping for a number of reasons. * Expenses: Statistics posted on indicate that $7.2 billion were spent on school clothing in 2009 for American students. In Canada, statistics show that nearly $450 million were spent on boy’s and girl’s clothing and accessories in 2008. Shopping for school items can be a big expense, one that’s especially tough to handle after paying for a summer vacation or financing kids’ stays at camp.


* Time: Crowded stores can make shopping stressful, especially when kids (and adults) would rather be spending time elsewhere. Getting children ready to head back to school often entails supplementing their wardrobe with new items.

* Intimidation: Facing a store full of stocked racks and shelves can make even the most avid shopper feel a little anxious. Parents face decisions about choosing clothing that is both acceptable to the school and trendy enough for their kids. This can put added pressure on shoppers. * Cranky kids: While some children may relish the idea of picking out a new wardrobe, others may become disgruntled by heading to the store having to try on different things and spend time away from friends.

Express Here are eight tips to make the process a bit easier and help parents save money as well. 1. Assess what is already on hand. Shopping doesn’t have to mean creating an entirely new wardrobe from scratch. It often means supplementing existing clothing with new pieces that can make things look fresh. Unless a child has entirely outgrown pants and shirts from last year, chances are there will be a number of pieces that are still usable and appropriate. Take a day or two to go through kids’ wardrobes and set aside items that can be used for school. Make a list of new items to purchase. 2. Establish a budget. Set a limit as to how much will be spent on each child and don’t stray over that limit. Around $150 to $200 may be adequate to pick up a few basics. Taking out cash from the bank and spending only what is in hand may make shoppers less likely to overspend or turn to credit cards for purchases. 3. Stock up on the basics. New undergarments and socks will be needed. Aim for about 10 to 12 pairs of each. This also may be a good time to purchase pre-adolescent girls a training bra or sports bra to provide some support.

Back to School Education is one of the key foundations for building strong and vibrant communities. We’re proud to support schools in Duchesne County – a place we’re proud to call home.

4. Buy new shoes. Shoes are one element of a wardrobe that may need to be entirely new. Active children tend to wear out shoes quickly. One pair of sneakers and one pair of dressier shoes, like oxfords, or ballet flats for girls, may be adequate.

We wish you the best in the upcoming school year.

5. Shop sales. If the weather is warm, it’s possible to save money on clearance T-shirts and shorts that stores are putting on sale to make room for next season’s items. Don’t fill a student’s wardrobe with heavy sweatshirts or sweaters at this juncture. Layering options are good because students can adjust accordingly to feel comfortable.

6. Intermingle designer with discount. Not every item in a child’s wardrobe has to be trendy. Layering items, such as T-shirts, can often be picked up for a discount in stores like Target or Walmart or Old Navy. Outer items, like jeans or some shirts, can be picked up from the trendier stores. Shop their sales and see if they offer coupons by signing up to loyalty Web sites.

EDUCATION Commitment Runs Deep

7. Go early in the day. Although it may be a challenge get the kids up and dressed to visit stores when they’re in vacation mode, arriving early means thinner crowds and refreshed

“What is your favorite fair food and why?”

Texas lemonade a fair favorite By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard If you visited any of the local fairs recently, you probably noticed people carrying what looked like large pink lemonades everywhere. Those drinks were actually Texas Twisters. The secret recipe for the Texas Twister was created by Dwight and Diane Memmott of Fillmore, Utah. Jeff and Tracy Boggess operate the Texas Twister booth that visits the Basin events every summer. “We own this Texas Twister booth,” Boggess said. “When you buy the booth it is yours to run and operate.” There are about 15 such booths operating in the western United States. “We work year round, probably 25 weekends a year,” he said. “This is what we do for a living and have been in the business for about 10 years.” This year the couple celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary during the Duchesne Fair. They said they enjoy meeting people as they travel, but it is still a job. “We get return customers. Still, it’s a lot of work,” Boggess said. “You are constantly setting up, breaking down and traveling.” If you still have a hankering for a refill, you will have to wait. “Texas Twister, often copied, never duplicated,” won’t be back until next summer, according to Boggess.


“Texas Twisters, you only get “Shaved ice, because it’s cold!” “The Texas Twisters, they are Susie McMullin, Roosevelt just so good!” them at the fair.” Melissa Robinson, Duchesne Denny Virchell, Vernal

“What I really like is the bananas dipped in chocolate. They are too die for. Maybe on the way out of here. We came for the concert (Craig Campbell).” Michelle Anderson, Huntington

“It’s the kettle food, the Dutch oven, Kevin’s Grab and Growl. Oh my heavens, it’s a meal: corn on the cob and a roll and potatoes and meat. And he serves the best Dutch oven raspberry cobbler.” Kitty Harrington, Helper

“You can’t go to a fair or the rodeo without getting a good hamburger. That’d be my favorite, just tradition, been getting one since I was old enough to walk, so I guess we hadn’t better break tradition.” Dan Giles, Heber City

“It’s gotta be root beer, because “Navajo tacos, because they “My favorite fair food is the it’s the yummiest root beer I’ve are just yummy...the beans chocolate covered strawberever had in my life.” and cheese and the big scone.” ries and bananas, because I’m gluten-free, so this works Elias Caress, Salt Lake City Shelly Allred, Bridgeland for me. It’s yummy.” Mary Hicken, Duchesne




Texas Twister drinks are “often copied, never duplicated” according to booth owner Jeff Boggess. He and his wife Tracy work about 25 weekends a year selling the refreshment. This year the couple celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary during the Duchesne Fair.

Livestock display and judging was a big part of the Duchesne County Fair.

The rodeo had some high-flying fun for participants and spectators.

The Duchesne County Fair was a hit for county residents last week as the fair proclaimed Country Pride County Wide. The fair started Aug. 4 with the Ranch Rodeo in the Duchesne County Fair Grounds Arenae and closed Saturday with a professional rodeo, concert and fireworks. Events included parades, volleyball tournaments, livestock shows, a demolition derby, a triathlon, horse pull, baby show, se- 7, 2012 - Vernal Express Wednesday, March nior citizen’s dinner, rubber duck race, car show, and the rodeo and fireworks.

This little, actually pretty big, piggy went to market By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard

118th Year No. 10 “700-a-half-700-a-half-700a-half, now 775-who-will-giveVernal, Utah 84078 775-for-this-hog?” echoed from the speakers as the auctioneer CENTS continued his non-stop spiel. There was a distinct smell of farm animals in the livestock arena at the Duchesne County Fair Grounds in Duchesne on Thursday. The cry of the auctioneer only added energy and adrenalin to the excitement at the annual Junior Livestock Auction. Youth from the county, including members of the Future Farmers of America and 4-H, had brought their animals to be sold at auction. Animals sold each year include beef steers, sheep, and… hogs. “I chose to raise a hog because it is a relatively easy process to raise one,” said Mackenzie Wagner, an FFA member from Tabiona. The cycle for preparing the

the fair.” But, not just any ordinary hog will do. It takes “some pig” to get to auction. “It has to be at least 220 pounds to make weight,” Wagner said. “I think I have done this for eight years and about three or four of the eight my pig hasn’t made it.” Last year Wagner’s pig made it by two pounds, and this year her pig made it by four. Of course, it is an auction. Money and animals exchange hands. “It takes about $250 to $300 to raise it,” Wagner said. “I got a thousand for it, so I made about $700.” Wagner said the money will go into her college account.


There are lots of helpers in the arena to assist the auctioneer in keeping track of who has bid and to keep the bid prices climbing. hogs is fast. “We get the hog around the end of May-ish,” Wag-

ner said. “And you just have to go night and day, night and day, pretty much every

single day feeding it.” Wagner could have chosen other animals to raise, but she likes the piglets. “Hog is probably easier

to me,” she said. “Cows take so much time and sheep you have to walk them. The pig, you can just feed it and watch it grow, feed it and bring it to

When you raise and sell a hog at auction, you can’t be a pig. Owners wash and groom their animals getting ready for the arena.

Tabiona FFA member Mackenzie Wagner offers a bag of treats to the buyer of her hog. Buyers come to the annual auction for many reasons. Some come to buy meat for the freezer, but many come to support the efforts of the youth that have worked hard to raise the animals.

Josh Augustus, a FFA member, leads his pig to auction. Not only must the pig give a good presentation, but the exhibitor needs to be spiffed up as well.

60th anniversary reunites former Union classmates The annual UBIC festival in Roosevelt is a popular time for class reunions. During this year’s festival, the 60th such gathering was held for the first graduating class of Union High School in Roosevelt. Shar Benson of Shar’s Realty in Roosevelt was a member of that class. She recalled when the school

first opened, the bathrooms weren’t finished so the students used outhouses. The newer, bigger school joined together students from both Roosevelt and Alterra. It was the responsibility of students in that first class of 1952 to choose the new school colors (black and gold), and to write the school song. That

year, the school’s basketball team were regional champions, Benson said. About 42 people attended the reunion and some chose to ride the float in the annual UBIC parade. “After 60 years, you wouldn’t think people would be so interested in seeing each other,” Benson said.



Some people of the class chose to ride on a float in the UBIC parade. Shown (not in order) are Shar Benson, Jack Burgess, Dale Nelson, Joann Bastian, Mildred Betts, Tom Rowley and Lou Hancock.


Union High School’s Class of 1952 celebrated 60 years since graduating as Union’s first Senior class. On Aug. 4, 27 classmates and many spouses gathered at Harmston Pavilion in Old City Park. A meal prepared and served by Smoke-N-Pots Dutch Oven Catering added to the enjoyment as people took time to remember ad renew friendships. Pictured are, seated left to right: Clifton Jenkins, Jack Burgess, Louella Hancock Harrison, Ina Lee Nelson Shaw, Glenda Nelson Hall, Pauline Larsen Poulson, JoAnn Labrum Bastian, LaRue Liddell Giles, Nelda Beal Mecham, Mildred Tanner Betts and Virginia Mathison Hall.

Not Much Gold



Uintah Basin Standard

Tuesday, August 14, 2012


Adult Champions in UBIC soccer play are: Robinson Bashualdo, Roger Gamarra, Gorge Gamarra, Oscar Alania, Jose Clemente, Dany Apolinario.

I read an article from the Internet (whatever happened to the National Enquirer – is it still in business) where it was stated the Summer Olympic Games gold medal is actually 90 percent silver. Those winners are always biting the medal to make sure it is solid gold, but it isn’t. Maybe they should include some chocolate because it isn’t that golden any more. This tape delayed Olympics is kind of pain. My home page on my computer told me that Usain Bolt of Jamaica had won the 200 meters to go along with his 100 title Thursday morning. He is the first person to win the 100 and 200 twice. I already knew he had won the 200, but even still I waited and waited to see the actual race. Finally at 10 p.m. on Thursday after watching volleyball, swimming and the 800 meters I saw Bolt bolt out in front to win the 200 meters race. I’m not sure if this was a repeat, but I think it was the first time as those NBC guys want you to watch the whole program before showing what you have been waiting all night to see. Bolt got another gold medal. I think he would enjoy a gold medal filled with chocolate or at least spaghetti sauce or blue cheese – maybe one with ranch dressing with butter milk. When I went to Boston a few years ago to see my niece Cara get married I took time to see a Red Sox baseball game in Fenway Park, but I also searched for Boston Baked Beans. However, most of the time I found a product called: “Boston Old Style Beans.” I arrived back home in Roosevelt and found some Boston


Baked Beans. I decided to read the fine print on one of the boxes and discovered that Boston Baked Beans aren’t made in Boston and not even New York City or Helper, Utah, but in Canada. Recently I got a Stars and Stripes magnet from the History Channel Club that has photos of different USA flags over the years. They had flags as follows: Grand Union in 1775, Betsy Ross in 1776, 13-Stars in 1777, 15-Stars in 1795, Civil War 35-Stars and Old Glory – 50-Stars. You would think that a magnet with USA flags would have to be made in the USA or at least Alaska or Utah, but No Way as I discovered it was produced in China. Maybe while there they could have ordered some Ham Fried Rice or Egg Foo Young. I also have a fish magnet with a temperature gauge on it. Is it made at Yellowstone Park or Minnesota – Land of a 10,000 Lakes (actually has 11,842 lakes)? It is made in China. It is okay with me that someone from China is making some cash, but wouldn’t it be nice if the product came from Gusher or Spring Canyon, Utah (too late – it is a ghost town in Carbon County).

Good News My sister Kaye sent me a birthday card that has President Barack Obama on the front and his greeting of: “Happy Birthday and All the Best!” First the good news – the card was actually made in the USA by some company named “Tomato Cards.” Now the bad juicy news – I don’t think President Obama actually sent me a birthday card which would make the guy in Roosevelt that has O.B.A. M. A on his truck’s tailgate. happy. I also received a card from my sister on her way back to Utah from a trip to Oklahoma that had a buffalo from Wyoming on the front. Was it made in Casper, Wyoming (had a baseball team called Casper Ghosts – Boo!! Now the team is in Grand Junction, Colorado and called the Rockies – so boring!)? – No, made in China.

My Cars I have a custom T-Bird Hot Wheels that was made in the USA back in 1967 (has a steel bottom and you can open the hood – it still works), but a Hot Wheels car made for General Mills – the cereal guys – was made in China in 2011. Rats, you can’t open the hood and it is made out of plastic. I wish I had a real T-Bird – now wouldn’t that be cool!

Eagles open season on new field B1 - HEADER on Aug. 24 vs. North Summit By Aldon Rachele Uintah Basin Standard Defending 1A state football champion, Duchesne has a new coach in Jerry Cowan, who isn’t that new as he is taking on his second stint as head coach this season. He was the DHS head coach from 2003 to 2007 and then left Duchesne to do mining in the Moab area. He returned to Duchesne and was an assistant football coach in 2010 and 2011. Cowan is replacing former head coach Billy Hoopes (2008 to 2011), but Hoopes isn’t going any where as he will be an assistant coach who will call the offensive plays and Cowan will be in charge of the defense. Duchesne will still be running the Wing T offense as nothing has changed except for a switching of head coaches. “We have been running the Wing T for nine years – since I came here in 2003,” said Coach Cowan.

The goalie from Morgan made another high leaping move to stop another Union shooting attempt. The first half ended at Union 0, Morgan 0.

Carbon, Sept. 7.

“I enjoy being back at Union. I had great opportunities to do well at Union when I was in high school. I want to give back to Union as a coach because they gave so much to me while an athlete,” said Coach Labrum. “I want to

raise the rest of my children in Roosevelt where they will be closer to relatives such as grandparents and great grandparents.” Union hopes to rebound from its worst season ever at 0-11 and a good starting place is a strong group of seniors in Jayde Bertoch, Steven Welsh, George Kaufusi, Alex Horrocks, Wyatt Kesler and MacClain Tomaino. Bertoch was a starter at quarterback for a number of games this past season. Welsh and Kaufusi

saw considerable play and Kesler, Horrocks picked up some minutes on the field. Tomaino was injured for most of last season. “Bertoch has been doing a good job at quarterback and is giving us great leadership on the field. Welsh is a hard nosed football player and I’m impressed with his play at fullback. He will also play the linebacker position on defense,” said Union Coach Labrum. “Kaufusi has played great at defensive end and will


also play tight end. He is very athletic.” Horrocks should start at wide receiver and cornerback with Kesler at safety and wide receiver. Tomaino will be a Union lineman. “Horrocks has good speed and will go and get the ball at receiver. Kesler has done a good job in the middle of the field as a safety. Tomaino is a bit undersized as a lineman, but plays with a lot of heart

Roosevelt Union fans gained their money’s worth of soccer when the first match of the season between Union and Morgan went into

overtime on Wednesday in Roosevelt. However, Morgan won the game 1-0 on a successful shot by Megan Miner with 22 seconds left in double overtime. Netting the assist was Tasha Anderson. Union beat 2A South Summit 7-0 on

Friday in Roosevelt. Union led 5-0 at the end of the first half. “Our athletes played well even though we were missing seven girls, who were at a girls camp (including seniors Allina Olsen and Jaylynn Cambridge). They (Union) never stopped playing for two straight hours in 96 degree weather, which is too warm for soccer,” said Union Coach Loa Kay Bowthorpe. In the first overtime Morgan hit the top of the bar on a shooting attempt and the ball bounced away no good. Syd Davies, Union’s goalie, made a stop on another scoring try by the Morgan team. Union had its best chance of winning the match, but Morgan’s goalie leaped high in the goal box to stop the Lady Cat attempt. If the goalie had missed the ball, Union would have won the match as the game would have ended on a successful shot. The first overtime ended at 0-0. Once again Morgan’s goalie made a leaping stop of a Union scoring attempt early in the second overtime. Morgan was high on another try near the goal and Union was off right on two more attempts at winning the match. Morgan’’s Miner took a shot from the right side and found the left corner of the goal to give the Morgan team its 1-0 win. Union spent time near the goal box early in the first half of regulation, but couldn’t find the range. Union had another shooting attempt hit off the side bar and not go in. Union’s goalie Syd Davies made several stops.
