A proposal is in the works to develop a sewage disposal system for residents living north and west of Roosevelt through the Hancock Cove area. Rough boundaries for the system run to a point just north of the Bluebell Road and as far west as 4000 west from the existing city limits. Health agencies have already identified problems with some of the septic fields that currently exist in the rural county areas outside of the Roosevelt City limits. The Duchesne County Commission retained Horrocks Engineering to work on a feasibility study to determine if such a sewer system were possible.

Energy summit hits on regulations, government Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - Vernal Express

By Dustin Hughes Uintah Basin Standard VERNAL – Hundreds of people from several states, including both of Utah’s U.S. Senators and the state’s governor were in Vernal Wednesday for the annual Energy Summit, an event more about policy and strategy than it was any technical issues concerning drilling.

The turnout of at least 525 people – about 25 percent more than what was anticipated – filled the Western Park Arena conference room. The number of people who showed was a pleasant surprise, said Irene Hansen, economic development executive director for Duchesne County. Hansen was one of the summit’s organizers. That turnout was an increase

over last year’s summit, which drew close to 300 people, said Tammie Lucero, economic development executive director for Uintah County. “That means the Uintah Basin is on the map and that people are understanding that we have natural resources and we’re a player,” Lucero said. Though there have been energy-related conferences in

the past, they often were more along the lines of trade shows or technical conferences, Hansen said. Last year marked the start of holding an energy summit to discuss strategy and policy. “I think that key leaders and decision makers are starting to realize that the Uintah Basin and the state of Utah are going to be SEE ENERGY on A8

Memorial held for Vernal teen killed by driver By Kevin Ashby Standard Publisher A couple of hundred people gathered at a Vernal Park to celebrate the life of Tommy Clark. Clark’s life was tragically cut short when he died on Monday, Sept. 3, after being hit by a vehicle. Clark, a student at Uintah

High School, was walking when he was hit, police said. Police say the driver of the vehicle that hit Clark had been texting while driving. Tommy had a fashion statement to make and did so with coloring his hair with a variety of bright colors. His hair was purple at the time of his death and so the service was celebrated with purple balloons to purple hair. Many were able to stand and express their love and friendship for Tommy at the services. Tommy’s mother and her husband Tom Evie were adamant about getting what they are calling Tommy’s Law passed that would make it unlawful to text and drive as well as put restrictions on using a cell phone. “I know this law will have some stiff punishment but we need to pass this law before this happens to someone else,” said

Evie. “This has been a wake-up call for everyone,” said Evie. “You see these things happening in other areas but you never think it is going to happen here. Well it did.” He talked about Sheriff Jeff Merrill talking about texting and driving at a home football game recently and he told students then that it was not a matter of if this is going to happen – only when. And now we know all about the when. “My boy was the when,” said Evie. Evie said that they were going to move forward with getting Tommy’s law written by the law makers and introduce it with the state legislator. They want to call it Tommy’s law so that their

Teacher’s charges dropped Charges against a former Union High School teacher were dismissed last week after 8th District Court Judge Clark McClellan found the state had failed to provide sufficient evidence of wrongdoing in order to proceed to trial. Eli Johnson was placed on paid leave last April after allowing students to watch a YouTube clip containing racially insensitive and sexually explicit material in class. One of the students in Johnson’s math class filed a complaint with the Roosevelt Police Department after viewing the video. After an investigation Johnson was charged with a third-degree felony; dealing in materials to a minor, and placed on leave by the Duchesne School Board. Johnson showed math-related YouTube videos to the class during a ‘pi’ party for the students in celebration of the mathematical constant 3.14 on March 14. A some point, the students continued to watch videos of questionable humor including material called “Is It Racist?” from the Comedy Central show “Tosh.O” presented by Daniel

They were mostly gathered for the fourth item on an otherwise typical agenda. At issue was whether Integrated Water Management is complying with the conditional use permit for the facility which treats and disposes of wastewater produced by oil and gas drilling. The planning commission could revoke the permit for violation of any of the conditions. Being reviewed was the third condition of the permit issued Dec. 3, 2008, which states: “After operations begin, applicants agree to take prompt action to control and eliminate odors if the county receives complaints. Applicants shall seek to establish an injection well and inject water most likely to cause odor problems.” Complaints from local residents have been submitted to not only the Planning Commission but also to various other agencies, including TriCounty Health and members of the Duchesne County Commission. Complaints started in the spring and summer of 2011. At that time, the company was ordered to submit an odor control plan. Complaints began again in April of this year and have continued since then. Mike Hyde, community development director for the county’s Planning Commission, ran through a history of the operation of the site. Operations at the facility began in November 2010. The first odor complaint associated with the facility came in June 2011, Hyde reported. Acting upon that complaint, the commission asked Integrated Water Management at that time to provide the office

with a written odor control plan stating what measures were being taken to control and eliminate odor. They did so shortly thereafter, and then additional complaints were received from other residents in both July and August 2011. Complaints then stopped after the company took a number of steps, but began again in earnest in April, May, and through August of this year. A tour of the company’s facility was conducted on Aug. 28 in preparation for the Sept. 5 meeting. When J.T. Martin first stood to address both the commission and the audience with a PowerPoint presentation about IWM, the gathering threatened to turn unruly when two people shouted out, including one woman who yelled, “You’re killing us!” Martin asked Commission Chairman John Jorgensen if the meeting was being conducted under Robert’s Rules of Order, and Jorgensen admonished the crowd to quiet down and await their turn to speak. Martin reviewed the history of the company, which took over a contaminated site operated between 1983 and 1987 by Grant Bleazard, who has since passed away. The site lay dormant, a potential Superfund site, when Triple R Water Disposal approached the county and state in 2008 with a proposal to clean up the site and re-open the facility under today’s up-todate standards. Integrated Water Management activated the conditional use permit granted and operations there began late in 2010. Martin characterized the company as a smaller, mostly family-owned operation that has spent hundreds of millions of dollars of its own money on the site, saving tax-payers’ money on remediation efforts. The company assists the energy industry by disposing of water produced by oil and gas drilling, which is often very contaminated. He explained steps taken to date, and stressed the company is very concerned about the people and the

issues he has heard about, and said additional steps are being researched with various consultants. He also stressed that the company does not produce the water that is polluted with oil and other more hazardous substances, but rather receives that water from oil and gas drilling companies for clean-up and disposal. “Integrated Water Management serves thousands of oil and gas wells in Duchesne County,” he said, and noted the issue is one that requires balancing industrial, economic and environmental concerns. He further stated that although there are indeed odors from IWM, the fact that the facility is in an area of intense oil and gas drilling means that there are perhaps others facilities or factors contributing to the odors perceived by residents. IWM is located about 7 miles north of Duchesne. When allowed to speak their piece, residents each had a set time limit of three minutes. Ten residents addressed the commission, and Martin was allowed to rebut. Occasionally audience members shouted out of turn. Several members detailed health issues suffered by themselves and their families, which they claim is being caused by IWM. Some said the harsh odors from the facility caused them to wake in the night, gagging and struggling to breathe. While eight of the 10 had complaints, two of the residents testifying said they didn’t believe the smell to be an issue. “I associate the smell with employment,” said Jessica Walters, adding that her family had not suffered any health consequences, noting her family, the children and even the dogs were all healthy. David Roth of Salt Lake City has a cabin on Caravan Lane. “I used to come out here to get away from the bad air on the Wasatch Front.” He noted that he had been coming to the area for about six years, but the last couple of



years the air hasn’t been “all that great.” “I suspect, my experience tells me, that most of these folks would be hard-pressed to prove that this is causing health issues. I’m not saying it’s not; it’s hard to prove. But I think the overwhelming weight of the evidence suggests that there is an odor problem that this company has.” He continued to address the commission. “The challenge you folks have is that these folks have a conditional use permit that requires they control odor problems, and that hasn’t happened. Unless you find that all these folks are delusional, there is an odor problem here, so it hasn’t been handled, it hasn’t been solved, and I think their use permit should be in jeopardy.” His comments were met with applause. He said he was not persuaded it was a health problem, but he said he was persuaded that there is an odor problem. “I experience it just about every day I’m out here,” he said. “Odor is enough. The code says that they will control the odor. It doesn’t say they will make their best efforts, it doesn’t say they will control their odor if possible, it says they will control it and that hasn’t happened,” Roth said. In the time permitted for his rebuttal, Martin said, “We are a family business. This is not a big corporation or publicly owned. You have our attention. I promise you that we will continue to do whatever we can to solve this problem.” He continued, “We want to be considered part of your community. I pledge to the commission and I want to pledge to our community that we will never skirt this problem, we are going to head it off with everything we have to take care of the problem.” He said IWM is working with outside consultants that may have some solutions. “We have a lot of things we are working on to try and solve this problem,” he said. While it currently has one injection

well, the company hopes to receive permits to build more and eventually get rid of the evaporation ponds, which are in large part being blamed for causing the odors. While IWM owns the land, another company owns the mineral rights and is currently blocking the company from building more injection wells. Jorgensen then closed testimony, although it appeared there were several more audience members who wished to be allowed to speak. Following that, Hyde told the commission there were essentially two options: One, they could revoke the conditional use permit and not allow the company to receive any more contaminated water for disposal; or two, the Commission could follow the example they set four years prior with Iowa Tank Lines and ask for an odor control plan and allow time for it to be implemented. Or, he said, “Some other option I haven’t thought of.” The commission discussed what they had heard. Jorgensen said the odor is a matter that needs to be solved. “I don’t want these people to have to live with it the rest of their lives. What we want to do is work on it. We don’t want to put you out of business, but we want to have you comply with the conditional use,” Jorgensen said. Martin said he would like additional impartial thirdparty input in determining odors rather than just the parties that have been complaining to date. “I wish we had a ‘stink-o-meter,’” he said. This brought comments from some in the audience calling out that they were all “stink-o-meters.” Jorgensen said he hopes the community isn’t out to just destroy the industry, but to help solve the problem, and if the odors issue improves they report positively on the improvement. He, too, noted that third-party input would be warranted. Roth said “If it improves next month I will be thrilled to come back and report that.” That comment was met with

agreement from some in the audience. After approving the motion to require the company to submit an odor control plan and re-evaluate the status at the next regularly scheduled meeting, Planning Commission member Ken Moon addressed the assembly. “We are not afraid to shut the plant down if it can’t solve its problems,” he said. “Don’t think that’s our issue. We want everybody to have the opportunity to do what’s right, keep it going so they can solve the problems.” Jorgensen then stated: “If this plant doesn’t shut the odor off in 60 days, we will shut them down.” A letter was issued to Integrated Water Management on Thursday clearly outlining what the commission had voted on. The letter was also sent to people in attendance who had provided their address on the sign-in sheet. The letter concluded, “All interested parties are encouraged to attend the hearing on Oct. 3. It is likely that the Planning Commission will conduct another site visit in advance of the Oct. 3 meeting. The day and time of that site visit will be announced to the public later this month.” On Thursday, the day after the meeting, Martin contacted the Basin Standard in rebuttal to a Facebook update reporting on the meeting. He noted that while the Planning Commission can restrict water from being added to the facility’s evaporation ponds under the conditional use permit, he said the Planning Commission has no authority over the company accepting water to be put into its injection well. When called for confirmation, Hyde noted that the Planning Commission indeed did not issue a permit for the injection well and the well is not regulated by the county. Utah Oil and Gas is the state entity that permits and regulates that type of water disposal. That issue was not addressed nor discussed at the Wednesday meeting.

Thinking Out Loud


Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - Vernal Express

Good therapy to remember the past! By Kevin Ashby Standard Publisher There are times when I just can’t help it. I really like the good ole days which now are the days of my youth. Sometimes I just don’t know how my grandkids are going to make it in today’s world. But, like us, I am sure they will adjust and survive. So for the next few moments, lean back and go back in time with me. To a time before the internet or PC or the MAC. Before Playstation, SEGA, Nintendo and even before Atari. Definitely back before cell phones, CDs, DVDs, voicemail and e-mail. This, from an email sent to me: I’m talking about the time of hide and seek at dusk, red light-green light, red rover red rover and playing kickball and dodge ball way into the night. Remember ring around the rosie, London Bridge, hot

potato, hop scotch, jump rope and “you’re it!” Do you remember when parents stood on the front porch and yelled (or whistled) for you to come home. There were no pagers or cell phones then. Take one giant step… may I? Or seeing shapes in the clouds. Endless summer days and hot summer nights with no air conditioning with the windows open. Ah! The sound of crickets. How about running through the sprinkler or opening up cereal boxes with that great prize in the bottom. Cracker Jacks and ice pops with two sticks so that you could break apart and share with a friend. I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons that included Tom and Jerry and serial adventures like Captain Midnight, Cisco Kid, the Lone Ranger and Boston Blackie. How about the wonderful Christmas mornings and our first day at school.

Bedtime prayers and goodnight kisses. Climbing trees. Swinging as high as you could in those long swings to try to reach the sky. A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers. Jumping down the steps or jumping on the bed. Pillow fights. Running home from the movies until you were out of breath. Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt. Actually being tired from playing. When work meant taking out the garbage, cutting the grass, washing the car, making your bed or doing the dishes. Your first crush. Your first date. Your first kiss. Your first day at school. Wearing new clothes to school that hadn’t even been tested prior to the first day of school – mom’s orders. Rainy days at school and the smell of damp concrete and chalk erasers. Class field trips with soggy sandwiches. I loved summers where Kool-Aid was the drink of the day and taking a swig of water from a hose was as natural as giving a friend a ride on your bicycle handlebars. And speaking of bicycles, remember when we attached pieces of cardboard to the bike frame to rub against the spokes? Remember when nearly everyone’s mom was at home when the kids got there from school? When a quarter seemed like a fair allow-

ance and another quarter a miracle! When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him, or use him to carry groceries and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it. Or when your parents took you to the cafeteria and it was a real treat. I remember when being sent to the principal’s office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited you at home. Basically, we were living in fear for our lives, but not because of drive by shootings, drugs or gangs – we simply didn’t want our parents to get mad at us. Wow! This is so therapeutic for me. Hope you are feeling better also. I long for the days when decisions were made by going “eeny-meeny-miney-mo!” When mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming “do over!” These were days when it wasn’t odd to have two or three “best friends” and the worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties. Remember back when nobody was prettier than mom and when scrapes and bruises were kissed by mom and made better and when getting a foot of snow was a dream come true? Abilities were discovered because of a “double-dogdare” and spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles. The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team or wearing something that showed even the slightest part of your underwear. I remember when water balloons were the ultimate, ultimate weapon. And the list could go on and on. If you can remember most or all of these things, then you will have to agree that you have lived during a more pleasant and simpler time. And I find myself trying to slow down to this pace in life when my own grandchildren come around. And I feel good when I share some of the old fashioned games with them. I know that life evolves forward, but wow! Did we have some great times that are worth remembering.

was he? I believe people want advice. That’s how Ann Landers, Dear Abby and Hints from Heloise got started. Sometimes we just need to know how other people managed a problem similar to ours. When I’m faced with a problem I start asking people, a lot of people, what to do. It’s like making chicken soup. You gather ideas like ingredients; then you weigh and measure what they say, throw it into a pot and let it simmer. Before you know it you’ve got a plan of action and things can turn out really good. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I dispense advice like people drop change. I feel qualified, after all I have a few gray hairs

on my head which makes me a wise old sage, but young enough to still have a pinky wart, which makes me precocious. So here it is: If there’s one thing trial and error has taught me its this – don’t procrastinate ... oh, and always seek professional help (I guess that’s two things) and don’t think life’s unfair because you’d better know it is (three?) and sometimes we can’t control the outcome (that’s four things). Webster defines advice as personal opinion. That’s it. Not even an educated guess. It’s not a forecast, magic, or even truth. Which bring me back to my granddaughter’s advice about my wart. “Nothing?” I ask her in astonishment. “Yeah ... “ she says pushing up from the couch where she had just lain against me. She wanders away and leaves me to my own thoughts. I decide that she’s probably right. The wart is inconspicuous, nearly flat and so very small. I’m keeping it! The best advice is advice you can live with.

Rep. Rob Bishop asks: Who owns the West? U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, longtime critic of the federal government’s management of public lands, bought the Uintah Basin Energy Summit to a rowdy close. “Public land was never planned, it just sort of happened,” Bishop said. The federal government owns roughly 660 million acres in the United States, or 1 out of every 2 acres in the West, according to the five-term congressman. Much of that land is managed by the Bureau of Land Management, which was organized in the 1930s to inventory and dispose of public lands. Initially intended as multiple use lands the “BLM has


morphed into something else” he claims. Congress changed the management policies in the 1970s, establishing a policy of conservation of public lands. Today, another policy change looms with wilderness mandates and conservation landscapes said Bishop warning of the “coming paradigm shift.” One third of America is federally-owned, “the West cannot exist half-colonized and half-free,” he said, noting more than 90 percent of these lands are located in the West. Under the circumstances, Bishop called for changing management policies relating to public lands to involve more input from Westerners.

asked, as the room erupted in applause. In March, Gov. Gary Herbert signed HB 148 into law demanding that the federal government turn over 30 million acres of public lands to the state. During the press conference at its signing Bishop told reporters that for the “sake of our kids, we need to develop the resources that are here.” Utah needs access, says the congressman, to properly fund infrastructure and education because they lack the tax base available through private property.

“If you’re going to have significant economic development you have to have affordable and ample energy. And, in the State of Utah, if you’re going to have energy development, it’s going to have to involve public lands,” Bishop said. Right now, the federal government spends between $8 and $9 billion to manage public lands in the West. “It’s your money, it’s coming right out of your wallet. Why not just cut out the middle man, keep the money here, get rid of the redundancy and control the process at the same time?” he

In his own words, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said he is an advocate for responsible energy resource development, particularly when it comes to the Basin’s vast reserves. The Uintah Basin “is a great place for energy — we’re just scratching the surface,” said Gov. Herbert. There are more than 10,000 oil and gas wells in Utah, more than half are located in the Basin, and 65 percent of all the natural gas produced is developed in Uintah County. Altogether, energy production is translating into billions in local investment. Forbes business magazine identifies Utah as the best run

state for economic health. It’s a fact that Gov. Herbert attributes to lower energy costs: 31 percent lower than the national average. A crowd of over 500 attendees at the 2012 Uintah Basin Energy Summit listened to Herbert’s opening comments. “We need to develop reasonable, rational, and environmentally sensitive ways to provide energy,” he said. Utah’s energy industry provides over 22,000 jobs producing about $230 million of in-state revenues for a thriving private energy sector. Herbert said his job is to “keep government off your backs and out of your wallets,” citing recent examples of his trips to Washington, D.C., to lobby officials. Government regulation of hydraulic fracturing is one example of Washington overreach, said the governor. Hydraulic fracture-related drilling has been around for 60 years without a problem, said Herbert, but now the federal government seeks to step up regulation. “It’s like a solution in search of a problem that doesn’t exist,” he said, saying the state is better equipped to protect local operators. Gov. Herbert’s website enumerates action items for energy development on Utah’s lands: • Assure appropriate access to public lands and a reasonable permitting and environmental process for energy development. • Create the Energy Research Triangle to coordinate energy innovation and clean-air efforts at the major universities and regional colleges. • Expand the Constitutional Defense Fund to challenge unreasonable federal regulations that obstruct responsible energy development. • Consolidate state authority on transmission and pipeline planning and funding into the Office of Energy Development. • Create the “Utah Clean Business Partnership” - a voluntary program for Utah businesses to implement clean air strategies. • Advance the discussion of the viability of nuclear power in Utah through a comprehensive suitability study including water, waste disposal, and safety.

Hatch addresses Uintah B1 - HEADER Basin energy summit By Dustin Hughes Uintah Basin Standard

U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch said Utah is one of the most important states in the nation in energy production, but what he said is a restrictive federal government may keep the state from reaching its full potential. Hatch made the comments at the Wednesday Uintah Basin Energy Summit held in Vernal. Hatch echoed the summit’s themes of public lands policy hampering energy production in the state. “Could you imagine if we open up our federal lands to energy development, how rich Utah would be?” Hatch asked the crowd. Hatch said America could be energy independent if free market access to the nation’s lands was allowed. Hatch was often critical of President Barack Obama’s administration during his speech. “What we’ve got in this country are a group of people who want to stifle just about everything,” he said. “Apparently the president would rather ship (oil) into our country from the middle east, Venezuela and Russia

Lee talks regulation at Energy Summit By Dustin Hughes Uintah Basin Standard U.S. Sen. Mike Lee called regulatory overreach the “single biggest impediment” to the nation’s economy. He made those remarks after his speech at the Uintah Basin Energy Summit, held in Vernal Wednesday. Collectively, Lee said, regulations mandated by the government have an annual economic impact approaching $2 trillion. Lee said regulatory compliance costs the U.S. about $1.75 trillion. That burden, he said, was growing more weighty every day. Lee said regulations that would have a significant economic impact need to be approved by congress, not put into place without a vote. Most of his criticism was aimed at the Environmental Protection Agency. Lee said

the agency was supposed to be more advisory than regulatory. “Before we allow them to take effect, Congress ought to be able to weigh in on them,” he said. Such an idea isn’t radical, he said. It’s part of Article I, Section I , of the U.S. Constitution. That way, Lee said Congress would be accountable for regulations. “When making laws, we need to make them through the legislative body,” Lee said. Lee said regulations put into effect, no matter how wise, are not made by an elected body. Lee seemed confident the famously gridlocked Congress could work to pass such rules when needed. Though, he noted, “the last time a budget passed out of the Senate, there was no such thing as an iPad.”

him, so he always had a job. Shane was a favorite with his younger nieces and nephews: not only because he always had a treat for them but, “he was funny!” He was always a very giving person, both of his time and money. His most recent project was being Mr. Fix-it at his parent’s home where he was living. He said, “If I can take it apart, I’ll figure out how to put it back together.” And he always did. Shane was very intelligent, had an incredible memory, and could convince anyone that the sun rose from the west. He loved reading, books, fishing, and riding Harley Davidson’s. We loved him, will miss him and are glad that he is at peace.

At the end of Mass it’s me who gets more from the people than they’re getting from me,” he said of his work. Father Manny provides Mass in English and Spanish to parishioners, although he cautions there is only one community in faith. “We don’t have two communities (in the Basin), we have one, there is no division, treat each other well in one community,” said Father Manny. His congregation is 70 percent English speaking and 30 percent Spanish speaking but that will change as classes in both languages will begin in the coming year. “I am a bridge between the speakers, but a small one because they work together. No matter what color we are or where we come from we are all children of God,” he added.


system to handle the projected 30 year growth, estimated at 1,200 people. The discussion about the sewer district continued during the Sept. 4 meeting of the Roosevelt City Council. Snow and Yack questioned the value placed on the existing Roosevelt sewer system. “Five dollars is all our system is worth? That’s all we would get out of the projected revenue?” Yack asked. “It’s appropriate that we, the city, should establish the sewer rate,” Snow said. “Whether we want to sell sewer service or not, it should be the city establishing the rate, not an outside entity.” Foster and Labrum discussed fairness in dealing with the proposed sewer district. “If it went through, I think it would be a good thing for the city, but I think for at least good will, let’s approve it,” Foster said. “At least the people that can benefit from the sewer can vote if they are going to do it or not and have the choice. Let’s not have Roosevelt City kill it before they can consider it.” Foster suggested that the council should decide if they are OK with the project happening and then define a price. “I feel we should be very aggressively helping and be friendly,” Labrum said. “We set a good price that is fair. I don’t think we should be the bad guy.” The mayor directed city departments to develop realistic numbers for selling sewer service to the proposed district and asked that the city consider a date for a public meeting to gain input from residents.



As for the purple hair, Evie explained that he was pretty strong in telling Tommy that he couldn’t color his hair and still live there at home. “But he said he was going to do it anyway and within five minutes his hair was pink that time,” said Evie. “I guess this was his way of expressing his personality. It was important to him.” Tommy is from Loveland, Colo. and another service will be held there on Tuesday. KLCY radio was asked to

Ballard awards street bid By Deborah Tracy Uintah Basin Standard Expansion of a former man camp turned RV park and rapid repair to a deteriorating street were two of the issues tackled by the Ballard City Council at its regularly scheduled meeting Sept. 4. The RV park located north of the Maverick gas station in Ballard currently has 54 spaces. “The history of the park is that it started as a man camp back around 20072008,” said Mayor Thomas Nordstrom. He said there is a need for a trailer park for the residents and those coming in to work in the oil field, so it was decided to make it a permanent thing. Developers Sonyador of Alpine, Utah, bought the park. There are currently 54 spaces. On Tuesday Sonyador was seeking a business license to allow it to do business as well as a conditional use permit for 68 spaces. The council has required the developer to put in things such as shrubs, trees and paving for the park. Lighting,

fencing and sidewalks are also on the developer’s to-do list. At the meeting, Sonyador also submitted an alternate expansion plan for 77 spaces. The current zoning formula only allows for 68 spaces, and that is what the council approved. “We just want a good trailer park that will look nice and one they can be proud of,” Nordstrom said. The council also awarded a bid for work on Union Street, which sits on the border of Roosevelt and Ballard. The $679,619 project was awarded to Burdick Materials, which had the lowest of three bids submitted. Engineer Byron Colton of Horrocks Engineering explained that the price of asphalt is what made the difference in the bids. Time is of the essence if the work is to be done this fall, and Colton is expecting 60 days to completion. Nordstrom explained the work will include putting down new asphalt, and adding curbs, gutters and sidewalks on both sides of the street “This will help kids going to school and keep them from

walking in the street,” Nordstrom said. The money is coming from the Community Improvement Board in the form of a $344,000 loan and a grant of $490,000. The extra money for the project over the bid from Burdick Materials will be used to make further improvements to the street, including improved drainage. The street will be closed to through-traffic during the construction, with business access allowed for the Ink Spot and Maverick. Coordination will also be done with Union High School to detour school buses if necessary. Nordstrom said the cost of the project is being split 6040 with the city of Roosevelt, with Ballard paying the larger share. On a lighter note, the City Council also heard of plans to install a “Welcome to Ballard” sign on U.S. Highway 40. Installation of the wood/ plastic composite sign is the Eagle Scout project of Ryan Richards, and it is expected to be done the first week of October.

critical drivers in the economic well-being of our nation,” Hansen said. Hansen said the summit has become “very informative, very issue-oriented.” She praised county administrators from Uintah and Duchesne Counties for their work on energy and preparing the summit. Speakers from the industry at this year’s conference used the opportunity to discuss issues regarding regulations on drilling. Most of those who spoke against the government were members of government themselves. Politicians, including Gov. Gary Herbert, Rep. Rob Bishop and Sens. Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch railed against what they said were a cumbersome federal government, unfair federal land policy and unnecessary environmental regulations. However, the summit was not all political. Alex Woodruff, regional manager of commercial development for Anadarko Petroleum’s Midstream business unit spoke on the company’s expansion in the Uintah Basin’s Greater Natural Buttes area. Woodruff said the Basin held a “world class resource.” He filled the crowd in on the company’s Chipeta processing facility and its potential. Speakers also detailed operations by Newfield Exploration and Ute Energy, along with other speakers from the



Workers construct a concrete base for the new welcome sign to be installed at the Old Teddy Park in Roosevelt.

Lucero said there were more than industry insiders and political bigwigs, though. Plenty of attendees were just regular people from the Basin who came to hear the latest on economic development in the region. The event also drew environmentalists and economic


development people from every county in the state, Lucero said. That’s in addition to educators from state universities. Already, Lucero said, she was getting requests from people to come to next year’s summit. “Word is spreading very fast,” she said.

Season 2 of ‘Key & Peele’ welcomes celebrity guests VIP LAUGHS: As America revs up for the upcoming presidential election, Comedy Central is bringing back two hilarious men who have made waves by poking fun at the current commander-in-chief. The cabler recently announced it is renewing “Key & Peele” for a sophomore season, which will debut Wednesday, Sept. 26, following “South Park.” The show, which stars improv greats KeeganMichael Key and Jordan Peele, will

welcome several recognizable guest stars in Season 2 to be a part of new sketches. The episodes will feature guest appearances by fellow improv genius Wayne Brady (“Who’s Line Is It Anyway,” “Trust Us With Your Life”) as well as Kevin Sorbo (“Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” “Andromeda”), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian in “Star Wars”) and Brenda Song (“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” 2008’s “The Social Network”). “Key & Peele” will also welcome back Rob Delaney (“Coma,

Period.”), who was featured in two episodes in the show’s first season. New sketches will continue with the show’s pattern of poking fun at trendy people and things in today’s popular culture. The stars will mock the studio reunion of Rhianna and Chris Brown by creating an uncomfortable music video. They’ll also demonstrate how hilarious it would be to see two gangsters bonding over their love for the “Twilight” series. Another sketch will depict an encounter with racist zombies.

Roosevelt outgrowing existing cemetery plots



As part of the master plan for the Roosevelt Cemetery, the existing shop and shed would remain functional for storage and irrigation controls. A new office and shed would be built on the south side of Eighth South along with property to develop 4,500 new gravesites.

3A State Golf Tourney attendees can camp at Constitution Park By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard It is a testament to the improved quality of the Roosevelt Golf Course that the High School 3A Golf Tournament is scheduled to be played there Oct. 3 and 4 this fall. The bad news is that there isn’t space to house the guests coming to Roosevelt from across the state. According to a report given to the Roosevelt City Council last Tuesday evening, there will be 155 competitors, 48 coaches and all their families converging on Roosevelt for about three days, Oct. 2-4. Adult supporters of the Union High Golf Team came to city council seeking unconventional help with their housing problem. “As of right now, we have no housing here,” Kitty Conover said. “We have nothing to

offer these people who are coming to watch their kids or grandkids come here and play in the state tournament. We have no place to put anybody.” Local area motels and lodges are all completely full, according to the report. “We really want the people who are coming here to have a good time and have good memories about their experience,” Conover said. “That probably isn’t going to happen if they have to drive to Vernal every day.” Without local housing, Roosevelt also stands to lose revenue from restaurants, since people will likely go to their motels and eat near where they are lodged. “This is a huge golf event to come to Roosevelt and probably won’t happen again in our lifetimes,” Conover said. The group asked for per-


mission to allow some RV campers to “dry camp” at Constitution Park during the tournament. “They would have to understand that there are no hookups for them there,” Mayor Vaun Ryan said. The group is trying hard to sponsor and host events in Roosevelt so the visitors can have a good time and stay in the Roosevelt area. “All guests will get a gift bag with coupons for things to do and places to eat,” Conover said. “We are also hosting a catered social for them. We want them to leave saying it was a cool place to visit.” Councilman Aaron Weight moved for the city to allow the temporary accommodations for RVs at the park during the state golf tourney. David Labrum seconded and the motion carried unanimously.

By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard While many citizens come and go from Roosevelt, there are some residents who stay permanently within the city limits. They are the residents of the city cemetery, and space is running out for move-ins. Drew Eschler, sexton for the Roosevelt City Cemetery, gave a forward looking report of the status of the Roosevelt Cemetery and preliminary drawings for solutions and future management. “We have reached the point in our growth that we need to do something about expansion,” he said. Eschler told the council that the cemetery was in the process of surveying and laying out the last of the plots in the developed cemetery. He estimates the remaining ground will provide for about 1,200 plots. “That will give us about 19 or 20 years of use before we

are completely out of spaces,” Eschler said. There are 6,300 graves in the existing cemetery, Eschler said. Property which the city owns to the south of the cemetery will allow for the development of an additional 4,500 grave spaces with a parking lot and new shop facility. “The parking lot is a necessity,” Eschler said. “If you’ve ever been there during a funeral then you know we basically shut down Eighth South.” Memorial Day is another time when the cemetery is overflowing with traffic and cars, according to Eschler. The master plan for the expansion south of Eighth South calls for an asphalt parking lot, paved roads, and a new shop/office. “I think we can do the improvements in phases,” Eschler said. It would be really nice to work on the parking lot and new shop first and maybe start on the Veteran Memorial.”

Eschler estimates 10 years for development of the first plots in the expansion section. A new office and shop would allow better service to large family groups which come to make arrangements or purchase plots. The shop space would reduce weather wear and tear on the equipment the cemetery uses. The existing office and shop is approximately 50 years old and inadequate to function efficiently. In the master plan, the old building would remain because all of the irrigation valves for the north cemetery are connected within that building. Flags for special occasions are also stored in the shed. Other concerns facing the cemetery as it evolves include the final switch to secondary water for irrigation and planning entrances and exits to the new expansion which will interface with future property developments around the cemetery.


You DO Have a Choice

The Roosevelt City Cemetery is now surveying its last grave plots and the time has come to begin studying the work needed to bring the southern portion of the cemetery into use. Sexton Drew Eschler presented preliminary plans to begin the discussion during the Roosevelt City Council meeting Sept. 4.

Starvation Walleye Classic nets a growing interest By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard


Over 500 attendees begin gathering around the annual kids prize drawing during Family Fun Day at Starvation Reservoir. Through contributions of sponsors, no one leaves the park empty-handed.

Sunny Starvation Fun Day enjoys record attendance By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard Saturday was a perfect preautumn day for hundreds of anglers, families, and friends to converge on Starvation Reservoir State Park for the annual Starvation Family Fun Day and Walleye Classic Fish Tournament. The two annual events run simultaneously each September. “2012 has proven to be maybe to be the best fun day ever,” said Irene Hansen, executive director of the Duchesne County Area Chamber of Commerce. “We have kids and families here that have been here three and four years running, many are bringing friends to the event now.” People from five states were taking part in the family event, according to Hansen. “This is just becoming an event that people are looking forward to each year,” she said. “The beach campground

here is completely full this weekend.” In fact, the campground booked out in advance within 48 hours after the spaces could be booked on the State Park reservation system. “People are now planning to come here each fall,” Hansen said. “It is really catching on as a signature event for Duchesne County.” “We enjoy these tournaments,” said Alan Spencer, assistant park manager. “We enjoy the people that put them on.” From a park standpoint, events like the Walleye Classic and Family Fun Day let people come out and enjoy the park and also reinforce the State Park system financially. “It has been a beautiful day, lots of people and lots of families have come out,” Spencer said. “Irene Hansen is great to work with and I think it is a bigger event this year than it has ever been.” The combination of the

Walleye Classic and the Family Fun Day has left a permanent impression on George Sommer, the organizer of this year’s tournament. “This is a super day of activities that combines a great tournament with a community event,” Sommer said. “I fish a lot of tournaments and this is the only one I know of where the community is actively involved during the tournament.” Hansen saw a need for the family activities when she saw that people were coming with the anglers and there wasn’t anything for them to do except wait for the boats to return to dock each evening. “We saw this as an opportunity to really help develop the tourism industry in this part of the county,” she said. The first event held 12 years ago had about 20 participants, according to Hansen. That number pales in comparison to the more than 500 people who took part in this year’s fun day. “It’s just our pleasure to bring this kind of focus to Starvation Reservoir and Duchesne City, the gateway to the Uintah Basin,” she said. “It’s one of the best places in the Basin.”

Celebrating 21 years as Utah’s longest running fishing tournament dedicated to walleye fishing, the Starvation Walleye Classic enjoyed its largest turnout Saturday. Starvation Reservoir has been enjoying a renaissance as a premier fishery as populations of trout, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and walleye are creating excellent sport fishing opportunities for anglers. Basin anglers account for 80 percent of the turnout, according to tournament organizer George Sommer, who is also president of the Utah Bass Federation. “We have 32 teams this year,” Sommer said. “That’s more than last year and we want to work toward getting up to 40 teams for next year.” Besides the Uintah Basin, teams also come from across the state of Utah, Idaho, and Colorado, Sommer said. As the tournament started Saturday morning, the expectation was for excellent fishing. “Some of the anglers have been pre-fishing to get ready for the tournament and have caught some great fish,” Sommer said. “Last week one group had 27 pounds of walleye in six fish, so there are some really good fish in Starvation and it is only going to get better.” Low water levels at the reservoir were not a concern for Alan Spencer, assistant park manager. “The reservoir is down 20 feet, but the loss has slowed now,” Spencer said. “The Central Utah Project helps control that. We don’t expect to get so low we have to restrict recreation.” The Central Utah Project is a federal water project that develops water usage from the Colorado River for a number of different uses, including recreation, fish and wildlife. The lower level of the reservoir affects people’s fishing habits, Sommer said. “There is a misconception when people hear we are in a drought and they quit fishing,” he said. “Actually, the fishing only gets better as the lakes shrink.” Starvation Reservoir is listed as one of the premier


Todd Christensen and Wes Karren, both of Duchesne, show off their best walleye from the first day of fishing at the Walleye Classic. The fish tipped the scales at just a hair over 5 pounds. walleye fisheries in the state, but residents who are used to fishing for trout are often uncertain how to go after the wary fish. “For someone just starting, use a jig head with a night crawler hooked to it,” Sommer said. “If I were trying Starvation for walleye the first time I would head to the northeast section of the lake and cast into about 12 feet of water near weeds and shore pockets.” Sommer recommends casting out and

working your way out to deeper water like 20-30 feet. “Cast it out and bounce it back across the bottom,” he said. “That’s one of the most effective ways I have found here at Starvation.” You can also use crank baits or troll if you are used to trolling for trout. “Something that few people try is down rigging, but that works great for suspended fish,” Sommer said. “This should be a great time of year to hit the lake,” Spencer added.

Uintah Basin climber returns from Everest bid By ViAnn Prestwich Uintah Basin Standard Mt. Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, claimed 11 lives during the 2012 climbing season. “Summit fever” caused or contributed to most of these deaths. Vernal resident Phil Henderson didn’t succumb to the often deadly condition and accomplished his number one goal – to bring his team home alive. “Summit fever” is the term used to describe the irrational drive some climbers have to summit at the expense of safety. These adventurers become so desperate to reach the top that they fail to consider dangerous conditions. Mark Jenkins, Henderson’s tent mate, climber, and National Geographic writer, blogged about the team’s experience. He described Henderson as “the least summit-obsessed person I’ve met here on Everest.” As an 18-year National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) vet, Henderson understands the risks of mountaineering as well as the joys. He was a part of the North Face and National Geographic-sponsored expedition commemorating the

50th anniversary of the first American to ascend to the peak. Jenkins’ blog also states that, “Phil was chosen as an Everest team member by (accomplished mountaineer Conrad Ankers) because of his calm even-handed character. He is the coolest of cool. . . As he often says, ‘For me, it’s about the journey, not the destination.’” Henderson didn’t succumb to summit fever, but was stricken with a bad case of bronchitis which prevented the 48-year-old NOLS Vernalbased field director from summiting. “On the mountain, it’s not ‘if’ you will get sick,” Henderson said, “It’s when. And at 17,000 feet it takes so long to recover and get better. If you get sick early on you have time to recover. I started running a fever 10 days before summit and didn’t have time to recover.” Even with inflamed air passages, the experienced climber considered trying to finish the ascent, but rationally decided to remain at camp. “There’s an old saying that says, ‘You are only half way done when you reach the summit.’ You still have to get

mit. When the days finally appeared, nearly 150 climbers started for the top, causing a bottle neck. “There were only four days of good weather,” Henderson explained, which put everyone in the same day for a summit attempt. “Because this year’s (weather) conditions didn’t allow for people to spread their summit days out there were a lot of climbers. I feel blessed I didn’t get stuck.”

On the mountain


Henderson takes a minute to pose with his Tibetan guide at the base camp. down,” Henderson said. Over the years, there have been about 225 deaths on the mountain, more than 82 percent of them occurred during or after the day of a summit attempt. Presumably, Henderson could have reached the top before his oxygen ran out or body gave in to the hypoxic environment. But

could he have made his way down during one of the most perilous climbing seasons? This year was particularly dangerous because of an extremely dry, windy spring. The Everest climbing season typically runs from late March to the first week in June, but this year many climbers waited for clear days to sum-

For Henderson the trip started March 18 when he left Vernal. He spent three days in Kathmandu before hiking to base camp. Between April 11 and May 11, the team did three rotations up and down the mountain, acclimatizing themselves to the altitude. “You climb for four or five days and then sit in day camp trying to eat enough,” Henderson explained. Sometimes the group would go ice climbing or visit other base camps. “There are people from everywhere on that mountain,” Henderson continued. Some of the people the climber encountered were former students of his. For three years, the experienced

outdoorsman had gone to the Khufu region of Nepal and volunteered as an instructor at the Khumbu Climbing Center. There he trained guides and mountaineers in rock and ice climbing, technical skills and leadership. Meeting his former students was one of the best parts of the trip. On their second rotation of climbing to acclimatize themselves, Henderson reached camp three. Here the air is thin and breathing becomes difficult. “It is hard,” Henderson said, “Just putting one foot in front of the other. It’s two breathes per step. Things become difficult. It’s hard to eat enough to just maintain your weight.”

Outdoor diversity

Had he completed the 8,848 meter climb, Henderson would have been the first African-American male to make the climb. For more than two decades Henderson has been promoting diversity in the outdoor industry. He was NOLS’s first African American instructor. The former collegiate athletic explained how he spent his youth involved in such

Family Dollar opens second Roosevelt store By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard New retail shopping came to Roosevelt officially last week as the new Family Dollar store opened on west U.S. Highway 40. The national chain, which markets itself as a neighborhood discount store, now has two stores operating within the city limits of Roosevelt. Jodi Leavitt, manager for the new store, comes to Roosevelt with 20 years of experience in retail management from companies including Walmart and Harmon’s. “The reason they opened the second store is because the other store is doing such a high volume, they’re having a hard time keeping up with it,” Leavitt said. “So they opened this store to alleviate the stress off of the other store and better meet the needs of the community.” The new store has a different feel from the existing Family Dollar store. It isn’t just because the store is new. “This layout is called a CR3,” Leavitt said. “The aisles are straight and perpendicular to the front of the store with the cashiers booth wrapped around beside the door, instead of stationed in the middle.” . Leavitt understands that there is a difference between

managing for a “big box” retailer and coming to operate a smaller store. If someone doesn’t come to work, she said, “You’re it, you’re there.” Besides bringing new shopping opportunities to the west end of Roosevelt, the new Family Dollar Store also brought a demand for new employees. “The store will probably operate with a staff of 12 to 15,” Leavitt said. “Our sales have started stronger than originally anticipated.” Family Dollar offers variety and value to the customer, according to Leavitt. “We have expanded our grocery department with larger meat and frozen food sections,” she said. “We have dairy and ice cream, pet foods, health and hygiene supplies, clothing, toys and special seasonal items, as well as essential housewares.” Family Dollar Stores offers an online presence at www. The website lets you select “My Store” and access weekly specials and coupons online. The new store will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. “We’re really excited to open in Roosevelt and look forward to meeting everyone in the community,” Leavitt said.

things as baseball and football. During a college football game the player fractured a vertebra in his back, preventing him from pursuing these traditional sports. While trying to find other interests, the young man took a NOLS course and has been working in the outdoor industry every since. Besides teaching, he is interested in exposing people who have not historically been exposed to what is thought of as the “outdoors industry.” “Twenty years ago—when there were very, very few people of color in the outdoors sporting area—I was exposed to it,” Henderson explained. “That’s how I got involved.” In an April interview with Mary Anne Potts on her blog, Henderson said, “I truly believe that the outdoor industry and outdoors education and expeditions are the true equalizers. They break down stereotypes. If you and I have to camp together, you cook for me. I’m eating your food. We have to spend time sleeping next to one another and waiting out a storm and telling stories. You are helping me and I’m helping you. Then we realize that people are just people. And really your background, your race, has nothing to do with it.”


Besides promoting diversity, Henderson and his team members were involved in research. A group of scientists from the Mayo Clinic were monitoring the athletes from the time they left base camp at

17,500 feet above sea level, up to the summit at 29,000 feet. The altitude is a perfect natural laboratory for the study of heart disease, lung problems, muscle loss, and sleeping disorders. In this thin air even a wellconditioned climber starts suffering from lack of oxygen and shows the same kinds of stress that a person suffering from heart disease, obesity or advanced aging may show.

Family waits

When Henderson waved good-bye to his wife, Brenda, and 4-year-old daughter, Bahati, the little girl didn’t cry. A week later, however, she was asking her mom if they couldn’t, please, go to the airport and pick up daddy. “A mother asked my daughter what her father did for a living,” Henderson said. “She told her that I worked on Mt. Everest. The woman thought my daughter had a very good imagination. Actually, she thought I slept the whole time. When she was getting up I was going to bed. When someone asked her what her daddy did while he was gone, she would say, ‘He slept.’” At the first of next year, Henderson plans to head back to Nepal and the little village of Phortse where he will once again volunteer at the climbing school. He expresses gratitude to his family, friends and those in the Basin who supported him emotionally and financially. Soon he will be prepared to present a PowerPoint presentation of his trip. Currently, he doesn’t plan to try to summit again, but he hasn’t ruled out the possibility.

How sweet it is!

To be successful in the honey business requires lots of hard work 118th Year No. 10 Wednesday


March 7, 2012

By Deborah Tracy Vernal, Utah 84078 Unitah Basin Standards



Tuesday, September 11, 2012 Bees are awesome. Tuesday, September 11, 2012 That’s the opinion of Gaylon Yack, owner of Yack Brothers Honey Company in Roosevelt. Spend a little time with the man and it’s hard not to come away with the same opinion. “One thing about a bee is they never stop working,” he said. “Nothing makes a bee happier than to work. That’s what they live to do and that’s what they do best.” Which means that a beekeeper can never really stop, either. Yack owns the business started by his father in the 1940s after his return from World War II, and cousins Robert Yack and Steve Yack are also part of the company. September is national honey month. The honey Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - Vernal Express bee is the Utah state insect, and the bee hive is the state emblem. That’s a lot of accolades for a small being with a life span of only months. Yack noted that honey bees born in June of this year have probably already passed away. In its lifespan, a bee will produce about a teaspoon of honey. Of that, much goes back into feeding the hive, with only about one-third stored in superframes in the hive, which is what Yack harvests. It goes without saying that it takes a lot of bees to have a successful honey business. The company owns 7,000 colonies of bees, and there is probably about 80,000 to 120,000 bees per colony. The bee yards of about 30 to 40 bee boxes are located all throughout the Uintah Basin7, 2012 - Vernal Express Wednesday, March and are placed as far afield as Colorado and Wyoming. Later this fall, the bees will be rounded up and shipped off to California to pollinate the almond farms there. “You Above, Gaylon Yack wears a protective bee suit while lifting a superframe from a bee box in a bee yard in the Roosevelt area.

It takes about 16 truckloads of bees to go to California,” Yack said. While the bees are off doing their gig in the golden state, Yack and his company set to work repairing hives and painting the boxes in preparation for the next year. Right now, the honey house located on U.S. Highway 40 in Roosevelt is abuzz with activity. Things have changed since the early days of bee-keeping, and some automation has allowed the business to become more productive. The big activity now is harvesting honey, and Yack hopes to have that completed by the first of October. The process involves taking the superframes from the hives. One person uses a machine to take off the cap of wax. The frames are then placed in a machine. The frames pass into a covered chamber which spins them. The centrifugal force pushes the honey out of the combs. The sticky liquid is collected in large tanks. The wax is also harvested. Much of that product is sold for use in ladies cosmetics and candles. As much as 95 percent of Yack Brothers honey is sold wholesale. The company is part of a cooperative operated by Sue Bee Honey. Depending on location, the color of the honey the bees produce varies. “Roosevelt will be darker than, say, somewhere up in Altamont,” ALL PHOTOS BY DEBORAH TRACY, UINTAH BASIN STANDARD Yack said.

“Entry fees pay the judges fees,” Brian said. “But the donations go directly to the competitors.” It is not unusual to hand out $800 in cash awards to the riders, according to Raleen. “The competitions throughout the year couldn’t happen without the support of the many volunteers who help hold the events and the efforts of Troy Cooper, Utah State University Extension Agent,” Brian added. The work done in 4H teaches all of the kids common sense, life skills, and good work ethics, he said. 4H horse competition work begins in February and culminates with the state championships in September. “Even the horse knows when the season is over,” Brian said. “Scooter would often be restless at events through the year, but he knew this was the big one. He was focused and calm until each speed event started. They know.” For the Gines family, horsemanship will give way to other activities through the fall and winter, maybe just a little rodeo for fun. Kiersten will return to Neola Elementary this week with school already underway.

Those helpful folks at the Internal Revenue Service are offering some tips about education tax benefits that can help offset some college costs for students and parents. Typically, these benefits apply to you, your spouse or a dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. American Opportunity Credit: This credit, originally created under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is still available for 2012. The credit can be up to $2,500 per eligible student and is available for the first four years of post-secondary education at an eligible institution. Forty percent of this credit is refundable, which means that you may be able to receive up to $1,000, even if you don’t owe any taxes. Qualified expenses include tuition and fees, course related books, supplies and equipment. Lifetime Learning Credit: In 2012, you may be able to claim a Lifetime Learning Credit of up to $2,000 for qualified education expenses paid for a student enrolled in eligible educational institutions. There is no limit on the number of years you can claim the Lifetime Learning

Credit for an eligible student. You can claim only one type of education credit per student in the same tax year. However, if you pay college expenses for more than one student in the same year, you can choose to take credits on a per-student, per-year basis. For example, you can claim the American Opportunity Credit for one student and the Lifetime Learning Credit for the other student. Student loan interest deduction: Generally, personal interest you pay, other than certain mortgage interest, is not deductible. However, you may be able to deduct interest paid on a qualified student loan during the year. It can reduce the amount of your income subject to tax by up to $2,500, even if you don’t itemize deductions. These education benefits are subject to income limitations, and may be reduced or eliminated depending on your income. For more information, visit the Tax Benefits for Education Information Center at or check out Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education, which can be downloaded at or ordered by calling 800-8293676.

New Union High School B1 - HEADER homecoming parade route will need UDOT permit By Steve Puro Uintah Basin Standard Members of the Union High School Student Council and their adviser appeared before the Roosevelt City Council last Tuesday and submitted a request to relocate the school’s homecoming parade route to travel north on State Street to the junction with 200 North and then proceed east along U.S. Highway 40 to the high school. Student council members Allina Olsen, Marcia Olsen, Kaylee Denver and adviser Keith Morris updated the council about the proposed route and the reasons for the requested changes. “One of the things to understand that we are trying to do is not only make it more public, but also we are trying to move the route in such a way that we can reach the students in the other schools,” Morris said. The route traveling down State Street is in reach of the

Junior High students, 200 North is close to Kings Peak, and U.S. Highway 40 is in proximity to East Elementary, according to Morris. “This would be on Friday, Sept. 28,” Olsen said. “It would start at 1 p.m.” Roosevelt City Manager Justin Johnson was called upon by council members to review what the changed parade route would entail. “You will need a UDOT permit to use U.S 40,” Johnson said. “You will need about 24 officers to be stationed at intersections and probably $1,500 in overtime pay,” he added. “That’s just for the U.S. 40 section.” Parade safety regulations require an officer at each intersection, according to Johnson. Johnson explained that the additional distances on State Street and 200 North would also require the use of reserve officers.


Tuesday, September 11, 2012

“Also, on relatively short notice, it’s hard to say if UDOT will issue the permit,” he said. Morris conceded that if things didn’t work out that they would still use the old route starting on 300 East and proceeding east on Lagoon to the school. “Our intent is to make homecoming something more exciting than it presently is,” Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - Vernal Express Morris said. “I think it is really wonderful what you are trying to do,” Councilman David Labrum said. Councilman Aaron Weight echoed Labrum’s support of the initiative. “I’d love to see us get revitalized again,” Weight said. Aaron Weight made the motion to approve expenditure of funds and application process work to make the parade happen on US 40. Labrum seconded the SUBMITTED PHOTO motion and it passed unanimously. Johnson was directed to Thirteen young women vied Saturday night for the opportunity to be crowned Duchesne Homesend in the application to coming Queen. Emerging victorious on the stage at Duchesne High School were, from left to UDOT to see if the permit right: Kieona Jones, Miss Congeniality; Allyson McKee, second attendant; Baylee Jo Thompson, queen; and Lashaia Poulson, first attendant. can be approved.

Seventh- and eighth-grade students in Loya Arrum’s Ute language class at Eagle View Elementary School decorate ornaments that will accompany the Christmas tree traveling to the nation’s capitol this holiday season.

Local creations will grace tree on U.S. Capitol lawn By Deborah Tracy Uintah Basin Standard September may seem a little bit early to be decorating Christmas ornaments, but not if the ornaments will travel from Utah to Washington, D.C., to decorate the tree on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building. This year the tree chosen for that prized location will be from the White River National Forest near Meeker, Colo. The location of the chosen Engelmann spruce, which is about 73 feet tall, is top secret, explained Lynn Lockwood from the Blanco Ranger District. “As part of the project, we need to bring along 5,000 handmade ornaments, and that’s a lot,” she said. “So,we are enlisting help from kids everywhere we can find them.” The Forest Service is working with all three Ute tribes on the project. Last Thursday Lockwood paid a visit to Eagle View Elementary School with a large batch of tree cookies, said Loya Arrum. Arrum is the Ute language teacher at the school, and her seventh and eighth grade students were decorating some of the ornaments. Actually, children from the first through eighth grade at

the school all had a hand in making some ornaments. Tree cookies are wood slices made from trees killed by beetles. These were supplied to the students, who then used paint, feathers, glitter and glue, along with copious amounts of imagination, to make the decorations. The theme for this year’s tree decorations is “Celebrating the Great Outdoors.” The tree will be cut Nov. 2 and a celebration is planned on Nov. 3 in Meeker. Then the tree will begin its trek across country. It will be transported on a truck driven by former U.S. Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, an Ignacio resident. Like some evergreen superstar, the tree will make numerous stops along the 3,000 mile route over the span of 23 days, with an anticipated arrival at the Capitol Building the Monday morning after Thanksgiving. The selection of a tree from a U.S. National Forest has been a tradition for 41 years, Lockwood explained. It will be lit each night during the holiday season from dusk to 11 p.m. A tree lighting ceremony will be held early December, which people can catch on C-SPAN. People can also keep track of the tree’s progress on Facebook: 2012 Capitol Christmas Tree.

Union rallies to whip Carbon in final seconds

By Aldon Rachele Uintah Basin Standard



Duchesne’s Dylan Despain, who is recovering from a broken leg, joins his teammates on the Eagle sideline. He was injured in a JV game vs. North Summit.


Over 200 yards in penalties didn’t keep the Union Cougars from beating the Carbon Dinos. Union’s Gavin Nielsen zoomed 45 yards and into the end zone for a touchdown with 45 seconds left to enable the Cats to take a 27-21 win on Friday for a 3-1 record. Union had a 21-13 lead over Carbon, but the Dinos got lucky as they gained a first down on a fake punt and took advantage of a penalty. Carbon’s quarterback passed for a TD and two-point conversion to tie up the game at 21-21. There was plenty of time left on the clock and Union Coach Matt Labrum wasn’t worried as he let fullback Steven Welsh take charge. Welsh scored two touchdowns in the game and rushed for 147 yards. Nielsen picked up 174 yards. “We felt good on offense as we were moving the ball. There was still four minutes left after Carbon tied up the game. Our running game was the key to the win,” said Coach Labrum. Union stopped Carbon’s running game, but the Dinos

hurt the Cats by passing the ball. “Carbon couldn’t run much. Our line handled the Dinos at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Our offensive line allowed us to rush the ball,” Labrum said. “Their touchdowns came on big passes, our mistakes and special team fumbles. We have to do better.” After three games on the road Union will have contests at home vs. Payson on Friday, Juan Diego on Sept. 21 and Park City on Sept. 28. “3-1 is a great start. Our kids are playing hard. It is great to be home and we are excited to be back,” he said. “We had a lot of penalties – holding, pass interference calls, etc. We have got to clean it up.” Alex Horrocks caught a 40-yard TD pass for Union and Cat quarterback Jayde Bertoch hit 9 out of 19 yards for 116 yards. Union’s safety Wyatt Kesler picked off a pass by Carbon to lock up the win for Union. Union scored touchdowns in the first and second quarters to lead 14-13 at the half. Carbon made two touchdowns in the second quarter. Union added one TD in the third

that most Eagle football team players have never heard of has a song called: “Tombstone Blues” that should be changed to “Touchdown Blues” for the Milford team as Duchesne’s Josh Hanberg returned an interception 14 yards for a score in only seven seconds of play after the previous TD. “They (Milford) threw it to me and I scored an easy touchdown,” said J. Hanberg. The game continued to be one disaster after another – just like in the movie Titanic, but icebergs were replaced by a 5-yard punt by Milford and any Tiger comeback was cooled off by Roberts ‘12-yard TD run and then a three-yard TD pass catch by Nielsen for a 40-0 lead at the 1:05 mark of the first quarter. Spencer hit seven out of eight extra-point kicks after missing his first attempt. He kicked seven in a row through the uprights. The first quarter could have been worse for Milford fans as Collin Moon had a TD called back in the first quarter on a holding penalty on the Eagles. Freshman Wyatt Remund snared a 57-yard TD pass from back-up quarterback Daniel Hanberg in the fourth quarter for a 47-0 lead. Wade Netto made a 90-yard kick return with 1:44 left in the game for the Tigers’ only touchdown. Duchesne linemen dominated the Milford team that dressed only 16 players. “We were pumped up to play this team and we showed more heart. They kind of quit when we got the big lead,” said Jesus Pena, who plays on both the offensive and defensive line.

Cats play close vs. Bulldogs B1 -game HEADER By Aldon Rachele Uintah Basin Standard Judge Memorial Catholic School has had some fine soccer teams over the years and even won state titles, but Union’s Lady Cats were ready for the Bulldogs in their Region 10 meeting at Union on Thursday. Union held Judge to zero goals in the first half on super goalie play by Syd Davies plus fine defensive play by other Union athletes. The excellent play by Union wasn’t enough as the first half ended in a 0-0 tie. Judge won the match 2-0 on two goals in the second half by Paige Brimley and Sarah Peterson. Early in the match between the Cats and Bulldogs, a shot by a Judge player was blocked by goalie Davies and was no good. Union went downfield, but didn’t score a goal. Davies had a Judge shot bounce off her hands, but regained control of the ball. A Union player intercepted the ball that had been under control of a Judge player in Union land. Union was off to the right on a close shot at a goal. The Judge goalie got a hand up to block a Cat goal attempt. Union’s Davies pulled off a diving move to stop a Judge goal try and two other shots were just left of the goal. Judge hit the left goal post on another try and it bounced away from the goal box. Judge was off left on a penalty kick late in the first half. The Lady Bulldogs scored two quick goals in the second half to take a 2-0 lead. Judge put in its second goal on a shot into the right corner of the box. Judge missed another goal earlier when they didn’t take advantage of Union’s goalie being away from the goal box. A Union player made a fine block to knock the ball away on a shot right in front of the goal. Allina Olsen of Union pulled off a kick over her head to set up a Union scoring attempt. The Judge goalie made a diving catch of the ball to prevent a goal by Union. Olsen attempted a shot, but it was just off to the right. She missed on two long distance shooting tries. On the final one, Judge’s goalie almost let the ball get by her.

Allina Olsen of Union High School puts all she has in this kick that resulted in going over her head and to a teammate. Union just barely missed a goal after the super play by Olsen. Union gave Judge Memorial a good fight, but suffered a 2-0 loss at Union last week. She stopped the ball in time to keep it from reaching the goal box. Davies dropped to her knees to stop two Judge Memorial scoring tries, and

a block by a Union defensive player prevented a goal by Judge. Union’s Shianna Thompson was left of the goal box on a shot, and Judge held

on for its first region win at 2-0. Previously Judge lost to Wasatch in overtime 2-1 and dropped a 4-1 match to Juan Diego. The Lady Cougars lost

their first match in region play to Park City 6-0. Uintah is winless in region play due to losses to Juan Diego 6-3 and Park City 1-0. Hailey Bunderson, Kacee Christopherson

and Erin Elder scored goals for Uintah vs. Juan Diego. Union will host Uintah on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Union was set to play Juan Diego in Draper on Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Duchesne’s Collin Moon (right) makes a fine gain running down the field. DHS scored six touchdowns in the first quarter and beat Milford 47-6. The Eagles will host Diamond Ranch on Friday and Layton Christian on Sept. 21 in the Eagles Homecoming Game. Moon scored a TD, but it was called back.

Eagles pound Tigers with 40-0 1 quarter st

By Aldon Rachele Uintah Basin Standard The days of state championship football play by Milford (beat Altamont for 1A crown in 1993) is a thing of the past as current state title winner, Duchesne, clobbered the Tigers in Duchesne on Friday 47-6 with three touchdowns being scored in

the first four and half minutes of the game. The Eagles made six touchdowns in the first quarter. DHS has a 3-0 record after three games. The Eagles will host Diamond Ranch on Friday and Layton Christian on Sept. 21 in their homecoming contest. It seemed like a scene from the movie Ground Hog Day

without actor Bill Murray as instead a cast of football players from Duchesne who kept repeating the TD Show over and over and over again to build a lead of 40-0 after one quarter of play. The first TD score by Kaden Moon of 82 yards seemed to be an instant replay of the opening kickoff return by Matt Muir in the first game

vs. North Summit (a 39-12 Duchesne win) on Aug. 24. The only difference was that Moon scooted right and into the end zone on the first play from the line of scrimmage after only six seconds of play. “I got good blocks and found an open hole for the touchdown,” said Kaden Moon in a simple statement about his long distance trek.

The only thing that didn’t go Duchesne’s way was a missed extra-point kick that was no good for a 6-0 edge by the Eagles. Two minutes later Duchesne was back at the scoreboard with a 20-yard touchdown pass to McKade Nielsen with 9:38 to go. Braxton Spencer’s extra-point kick gave the Eagles a 13-0 lead.

Duchesne was treating the scoreboard like a juke box and depositing touchdowns like quarters and playing “We Are The Champions!” with a 15-yard pass by quarterback Trent Roberts to Matt Muir for a TD. The Eagles led 20-0 with 7:44 left. A singer named Bob Dylan
