American Fork is a unique place to live and do business: it offers small-town charm along with big-city amenities. This city of 30,000 is the heart of northern Utah County and has great opportunities for businesses both large and small to succeed. During the last year, our historic downtown has seen an increase in business as vacant buildings have been filled. American Crafts has broken ground for a new warehouse and retail space, and Intermountain Medical Group has completed its new 85,400-square-foot Multispecialty Clinic. Expansion of American Fork hospital is underway. National companies are looking at American Fork for relocation or expansion. The Frontrunner train station has opened on the west side of Interstate 15 and efforts are underway to attract retail, housing and office developments to that area. Eventually, light rail will also come through the city. In this vibrant business climate, the American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce exists to act as a resource for all businesses as they open and operate in American Fork. Whether through offering networking and education opportunities, providing technology assistance or connecting businesses with charitable community causes, the chamber

is ready to help. We are excited to announce that chamber of commerce membership now comes with the ability to create a mobile app for your business. The chamber can help you set up this new tool that will help drive business to your website and through your doors. In addition, chamber members will also be able to set up a “Traffic Catcher Page.” This page - which essentially operates as a mini website - will help move your business up in a Google search because a chamber of commerce is considered a very reliable source of information. This means customers will more easily find your Traffic Catcher Page, which can redirect them to your main website. Chamber membership connects business professionals with each other, but it also connects them with the community. The American Fork chamber has multiple events throughout the year which enable businesses to become involved with and give back to their customers. These events include the Halloween 5K Fun Run, which has benefited the Autism Council of Utah and the American Cancer Society. The annual chamber golf tournament also raises money for various causes; this year’s tournament will raise funds for the canine unit at the American Fork Police Department to

Local lawyer strives for excellence “I’m not interested in being a good, or a great lawyer, I want to be an exceptional lawyer.” According to attorney Craig Bainum, the difference between great lawyers and exceptional lawyers are those who manage their case load so that they can give their full attention and effort to every client. He always treats current clients as being more important that prospective clients. If he thinks that taking a new case would interfere with a current client, he turns down the new case. He went to law school because “I wanted to be rich, I wanted to know everything, and I wanted to help people. Well . . . I have never been rich, I don’t know everything, but I do get to help people every day. And I love it.” He graduated from the BYU law school in 1991 and since then has practiced law in a variety of settings, including construction law and as a public defender. A fan of being his own boss, Craig went into business for himself in Lehi about a year ago.

He and his family have lived in Lehi for over 16 years and wouldn’t have it any other way. Craig handles many different types of cases, likes the variety of doing more than one thing, and never shies away from the difficult cases. He likes the small firm feel and the opportunity to focus on helping both individuals and small businesses rather than large corporations. For engaging and expert legal advise, call attorney Craig Bainum. You may be exceptionally pleased with how he can help you, your family, or your small business.

Shop Local program goes mobile with WingCash American Fork City is upgrading its Shop Local program by working with WingCash to deliver Shop Local offers to the WingCash mobile wallet. The upgraded functionality simplifies the process of creating, promoting and delivering offers and saves Shop Local merchants money. Shop Local merchants advertise discounts available through the program by email and very soon offers will also be in the wallet app. When customers have a WingCash wallet, the Shop Local offers they accept are delivered immediately to their mobile wallet. All the offers from the Shop Local merchants are saved in a single app on their mobile device. No more trying to keep track of coupons! The app knows which offers are good at each merchant location and automatically redeems them. Redeeming an offer held in a WingCash wallet is simple too. When customers are shopping at a local merchant, they just have to tap the Shop Local offer, enter the amount and send. The app provides a four-digit number called a payment code to give to the local merchant. The customer

provides the payment code when at the cash register, and that’s it. Anadine Marshall has been using a WingCash wallet for a year and said, “I love using my mobile phone to redeem offers and pay locally. It’s so simple.” The improved Shop Local program with the WingCash wallet feature is a win-win-win for Shop Local merchants, customers and the local economy. Shop Local customers appreciate the speed and convenience of offer delivery and the ease of redeeming offers. Shop Local merchants save postage and resources by not printing and mailing offers. And each $1 spent locally on products or services adds $4 to $6 dollars to the local economy. American Fork City’s Shop Local program, coupled with the WingCash wallet, offers merchants and customers speedy offer delivery, simple and convenient redemption and savings. Shop local, spend local and save. For more information about the Shop Local program, email Debby Lauret at chamber@afcity.net or call 801-319-8655. Get a free mobile wallet at wingcash.com/signup.

Business offers sweet, savory pies After turning out thousands of meat pies to earn money for camp and other activities, Rhonda Webb and her sons were so enthusiastic about baking that they began dreaming of someday having their own pie shop. That dream became reality in 2013 when Rhonda’s Pies opened in American Fork’s historic downtown area at 35 N. Barratt Ave. (150 West). The business, which reached its one-year anniversary on April 15, 2014, offers a variety of savory and sweet pies to its customers that they can take home or enjoy in the shop’s dining area. A selection of pastries such as quiche, brownies and cinnamon rolls is also available. “When they leave a job or something for the day, some people sit on the couch and unwind. I love to go into the kitchen and bake something,” Webb said. “It’s just my passion. I love to bake.” When her sons were young, she often made turnover meat pies for her family, even freezing them so they could later serve as a quick meal. In the mid-1980s, her sons needed to raise money for their activities, and the family

decided to make the meat pies and sell them. Soon others heard about the fundraising efforts and asked the family to make pies for them as well. “We probably made close to 30,000 meat pies that summer,” Webb said. It was apparent that there was a demand for the pies, but it would be a few years before their vision for a bakery became a reality. Webb now runs Rhonda’s Pies with the help of a part-time employee as well as her husband and sons, who put time in after working at their regular jobs. Rhonda’s Pies produces hundreds of its meat pies every week in chicken, ground beef and vegetable varieties. Some pies are frozen for customers to take home and bake in their own ovens. Others are cooked at the bakery so customers can enjoy them as a hot lunch. Many of her customers buy the pies to take to people who are ill or otherwise in need of a meal because they are very convenient to prepare, Webb said. The bakery has a wide variety of dessert pies available as well, the most popular being the German Chocolate Pie. The second place favorites are the S’more Pie, made with

graham cracker crumbs, chocolate ganache, toasted marshmallows and a chocolate filling, and the Peanut Butter Pie. The cream and fruit pies come in a petite five-inch size that sells fast to customers who like to give the pies as gifts. Also becoming popular for weddings and other events are sheet pies, which are made in a sheet pan and cut and served like a cake. While she loves the baking, Webb also enjoys meeting new people through her business. Often customers will have valuable feedback and sometimes even a challenge to come up with a new product. A customer involved with a pumpkin-growing contest asked her to bake a giant pumpkin pie for the contest, and he provided a 38-inch pan for her to bake it in. The finished product weighed 55 and a half pounds. Webb

ended up selling eight more giant pumpkin pies to local companies during the holiday season. Webb said her business is doing

well and that hopefully the future will bring opportunities to expand. “I’d love to open up more shops,” she said. “That’s my next goal.”

Kencraft now making sweets in A.F. A local candy manufacturer had run out of room at its Alpine location, causing its production and warehousing operations to spread to four different locations, one as far away as North Salt Lake. It was time to look for a new home where all aspects of the business could operate under one roof. “I’ve been here five years and that was one of my first goals,” said Greg McCormack, president of candy manufacturer Kencraft, the oldest confectioner in the United States. Currently in its 45th year of operation, Kencraft produces high-quality candy such as candy canes, lollipops and handpiped icing decorations. McCormack said the search for a new home led Kencraft to a large building in American Fork that was formerly a Walmart store. The new location is just off Interstate 15 and the owner was willing to remodel the space to accommodate Kencraft, making it a great fit for the company. Kencraft’s entire operation moved into its new American Fork location at 708 S. Utah Valley Drive about a year ago.

Now the company has its entire hard candy production efforts in one location, something that was impossible before. All of its storage area, both for raw ingredients and finished items, is now on-site, making daily operations more efficient. The Peppermint Place, Kencraft’s sales outlet where the public can buy its candy creations, is also housed in the new building. Since the relocation, outlet sales are up 25 percent, something McCormack attributes to being next to the freeway. “We had a hard time bringing people off I-15 into the candy store in Alpine,” he said. Kencraft still makes many of its products the old-fashioned way - by hand - giving candy items a more personal touch. “That’s one of our claims to fame,” McCormack said. The company is one of only a few companies in the United States that still hand-produces candy canes for the high-end gift and retail markets. Other products Kencraft is known for include panoramic Easter eggs, with scenes made of hand-piped icing inside

a sugar shell, and handmade icing decorations, many of which are produced for other candy manufacturers. For many years at its Alpine location, Kencraft was able to give tours of its facility to the public, something that was very popular with children. Those tours were canceled when space became limited, but with the new facility, visitors can again see the candy makers at work. Visitors can’t go into the actual production area, but large windows in the Peppermint Place allow a close-up view of icing decorators and a large-screen television shows a live video feed of employees working with batches of candy. Kencraft was named the American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce’s New Business of the Year in 2013. “We’ve been really welcomed by the business community,” McCormack said, adding that the company tries to support local schools and other organizations through fundraising opportunities. For more information about Kencraft, go to www.kencraftcandy.com or visit the Peppermint Place. New products Employees hand cut and bend candy canes at the Kencraft manufacturing facility in American Fork. at the company include Candy Chips, a crushed candy in different colors that can be used for decorating cupcakes placed on lollipops. The Peppermint Place has a wide variand other confections, and Linky Doodles, candy links that ety of professional sport team logos on lollipops for sale as can be put together like a paper chain and used for decoratwell as the logos of local high schools.

Pleasant Grove downtown evolving With the renovation of historic buildings and the opening of more businesses, Pleasant Grove’s historic downtown area is gaining new life, a trend that is expected to continue. “It’s exciting to see more options for residents to come downtown and enjoy eating and shopping and having a good time in the heart of the city,” said David Larson, executive director of the Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce. A collection of restaurants has been attracted to the area in recent years, with Cocolito’s Mexican Restaurant and Firebird Pizza and Pasta locating in a remodeled building and the Cravings - Alisha’s Cupcakes shop opening just up the block. Cravings Bistro has moved to Pleasant Grove’s downtown, and other restaurants are eyeing the area as well, Larson said. “My take on the downtown is it’s really revitalizing. There’s new stores, new shops, and in some ways it’s becoming somewhat of a downtown dining district,” Larson said.

Ken Young, Pleasant Grove’s community development director, said when he began working for the city eight years ago, the downtown seemed like it was dying. In the last few years, however, more businesses have moved into the area, including boutique shops. “It feels like it’s bringing in a new feel of economic vitality into downtown, and I just believe and hope that that will continue to grow,” Young said. The city has been encouraging growth and development in the downtown area for quite some time, he said. A downtown action plan was created after he joined the city staff that put goals in place for things that could be done downtown. “There’s been thought by the city about involving the public and getting the word out there that, hey, we want to look at downtown and get some excitement down there,” Young said. “It does appear that after that time was when we started seeing more things happen.” TestOut, a company that helps students obtain certifications in the information technology industry, opened its

doors in 1991 and moved to a location in Pleasant Grove’s downtown area in 1994. TestOut has owned several buildings in downtown Pleasant Grove for years, but the business’s growth both domestically and internationally led TestOut’s sister company, Mount Franklin Holdings, to purchase more last summer. The company now owns most of the buildings on the west side of Main Street between Center Street and 100 South as well as a few other structures nearby. Renovations have been completed on some of the buildings and more renovations are planned for the future. The plan is for TestOut to occupy the majority of the space, but space may be leased to other businesses as well. For example, Cravings Bistro found its new home in one of the renovated buildings. Noel Vallejo, founder and owner of TestOut, said Pleasant Grove’s family-oriented atmosphere and emphasis on education have made it a good fit for his company. TestOut anticipates being part of the community for many years to come. “We feel like there’s kind of a renewal of the downtown going on, and we enjoy seeing that and seeing it restored as a little bit more of a business center for the community,” he said. Young said the city hopes to eventually construct new

government buildings downtown including new police and fire departments, a new city hall, a new library and an arts performance venue. These projects would add to the revitalization of the downtown area. There are also plans for additional residential opportunities and development in the area. While it might not happen overnight, changes and improvements will likely continue to happen downtown. “I think there’s good momentum already going and I think we will see more of it,” Young said.

Macey’s is Pleasant Grove Business of the Year Since opening its doors in Pleasant Grove in 2002, Macey’s grocery store has been offering a high level of service to local residents and giving back to the community through donations to area events and organizations. It’s this commitment to the community that led Macey’s of Pleasant Grove to receive the Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Business of the Year Award. Customer service is key at Macey’s, and the store tries to go the extra mile when it comes to greeting and helping its shoppers. “What we would like our employees to do is to greet each guest and not be afraid to say hello to them. We want our guests to feel welcome,” said Jared Young, store director of the Pleasant Grove Macey’s. Employees are asked to escort customers to items they are looking for instead of just describing where to find the items. The store’s experts in its various areas such as the meat department and the bakery are happy to consult with customers on what items they may need for a dinner or party and how much of an item they might need to purchase. The store consistently supports community activities such as the city’s safety fair and Strawberry Days celebration.

Each year, Macey’s hosts the safety fair in its parking lot, and the store has helped with obtaining strawberries for the city celebration and selling tickets for Strawberry Days events. “It’s important to us because we want to be able to give back to the community,” Young said. Through its School Cents program, Macey’s allows customers with a purchase account to assign their purchases to a specific school, and the school that accumulates the most sales gets a portion of that amount donated to it. “It’s just a way that we can partner with schools in our community and help give some money back that way,” he said. The store is honored to have been chosen for the chamber’s top award. “It’s really a credit to the team members that work here in the store and the professionalism with which they go about their business and the level of guest service that they provide,” Young said. “It’s those team members on the front line that really make this store as great as it is.”

PG Promenade, each week is unique Every Thursday evening during the summer, a Pleasant Grove park fills with people enjoying music, food, and activities - but while the location and time are the same, each Thursday event offers a completely different experience. Welcome to the Pleasant Grove Promenade, which will begin on June 26, 2014, and continue each Thursday through Sept. 4. Held in the Historic Downtown Park at 100 S. Main in Pleasant Grove, this weekly event provides an opportunity to spend a pleasant summer evening browsing booths with food, craft items and local produce for sale while enjoying entertainment by local performers. The booths open at 5 p.m., and live entertainment begins at 6 p.m. Local bands and performers are featured on stage, and activities designed for children are available. Admission is free and the activities continue until dark. Started as a way to bring people to Pleasant Grove’s downtown area and to feature local businesses, the Promenade has grown to become a city-sponsored event that’s centered on providing families a chance to spend time together enjoying dinner and entertainment. Now in its seventh year, the Promenade has become a Pleasant Grove tradition. What makes the Promenade unique, however, is

that each week has its own theme, meaning that residents can expect a different experience each time they attend. For example, on Aug. 28 residents attending the Promenade will be able to enjoy what is typically the largest draw of the summer: the Classic Car Show. Classic car enthusiasts will bring their hot rods and historic automobiles to the park where the public will be able to view them up close. July 3 will be Freedom Day, with activities honoring the men and women of the United States military. Different vendors attend each week, and the entertainment will be different as well. For more information visit www.pgpromenade.com.

Contestants compete in the pie-eating contest.

Networking, service at Women in Business Local businesswomen are finding a place to network and a place to serve in North Utah County Women in Business, an organization sponsored by the American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce. Formed about 10 years ago, this group holds meetings on the fourth Wednesday of every month, providing opportunities for its members to share ideas and learn how to grow and manage both their businesses and their personal lives. The group also hosts two conferences each year. “We want to be supportive of women trying to succeed,” said Debby Lauret, executive director of the American Fork Area Chamber. Each May, the organization participates in the Women in Business Conference, which also includes members of the Women in Business Network, an organization affiliated with the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce, and Women in Business South Utah County, which operates under the umbrella of the Spanish Fork-Salem Chamber of Commerce. This one-day conference includes speakers and vendor tables highlighting various businesses. In November, North Utah County Women in Business hosts its WISE Conference, which stands for Women in

Service Excellence. Each year, a charity is selected and a service project conducted to benefit that charity. Past projects have included filling Christmas stockings for a food bank and making blankets specially designed with various fabrics and textures to help stimulate the minds of patients with Alzheimer’s. “We are always looking for ways to support the communities in which we live with programs like our WISE Conference and supporting community events and service opportunities sponsored by our local chambers of commerce,” said Dannette Klein, president of North Utah County Women in Business. Women interested in being part of the North Utah County Women in Business organization can join either by paying an additional $20 if they’re already a member of the American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce or by paying $50 to just join Women in Business. This year’s Women in Business Conference will be held on May 15 at Stone Gate Center for the Arts in Pleasant Grove. Visit americanforkchamber.org for more information.

Alpine City is located at the northern end of Utah County in an area protectively surrounded by the beautiful mountain peaks of the Wasatch Range. Alpine began in the mid-1800s as a farming community; the high mountains on the north and east, the rolling hills on the west and the running streams of water made it an ideal location for cattle. The Utah Legislature granted a charter on Jan. 19, 1855, to Alpine, which became the 17th city in the Utah Territory. The name Alpine was suggested by Brigham Young, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because the mountains reminded him of the Swiss Alps. Today, Alpine is a close-knit community of about 10,000 people with residents who enjoy the great pioneer legacy left to them. Traditions established in the past still live on today. People are willing to put forth special effort to help preserve and keep the city a wonderful and peaceful place to live. Alpine residents can enjoy the beauty of the city’s location through visiting the city parks. Lambert Park is a 260acre natural park with trails for mountain bikes and horseback riding. Children can enjoy the splash pad in Creekside Park. The area’s history is memorialized in Moyle Park,

which is home to a museum, a picnic pavilion and children’s playground. The city holds the weeklong celebration of Alpine Days each summer with events ranging from a rodeo to storytelling, a 5K run, a downtown parade, a basketball tournament and a family picnic.

Auto repair shop helps customers make informed decisions Before recommending any service, Rod Martin asks himself one question: “Would I recommend this to one of my family members?” His parents live 550 miles away in Oregon, so he can’t personally work on their cars. When Rod and his wife, Kimberly, started World Class Auto Repair almost 10 years ago, they wanted their shop to be the one that would treat its customers like he would like his parents to be treated. Rod knows that a lot of people don’t have extra money for unexpected repairs and maintenance on their cars, so he helps his customers prioritize their car’s issues so that they can plan better to schedule future repairs and maintenance. He trains his technicians to always do a bumper to bumper visual inspection on every car that comes in, no matter what the person comes in for, so they can help their customers make the best informed decisions they can. They have the distinction of being the area’s only AAA approved auto repair shop, with 11 bays to take care of a variety of auto problems, from alignments

26

to engine replacements, or even just to get the oil changed. Above all, Rod and Kimberly live in American Fork and hope that their love for the area shows in their work. Rod gives back to the community as a member of the local Rotary Club and as a sponsor Rod Martin of the American Fork High School football team.

The city of Cedar Hills was incorporated in 1977, taking its name from the cedar trees growing in the area. However, settlers began making their homes in the area between 1849 and 1850. The area was used for dry farming and livestock and later for turkey farming. Cedar Hills is nestled between the slopes of majestic Mt. Timpanogos and Utah Valley on gentle hills that once served as the shoreline of Lake Bonneville, giving residents beautiful mountain, lake and valley views. This bedroom community offers a quiet, relaxing place in a rural setting where residents can raise their families. The topography of the city varies widely, but with some points below 5,280 feet above sea level and some above, the city claims its altitude at 5,280 and so considers itself Utah’s Mile-High City. One of the holes (No. 14) at the 18-hole Cedar Hills Golf Club is named Mile-High because it is actually at 5,280 feet above sea level. Located at the mouth of American Fork Canyon, Cedar Hills offers quick access to canyon recreation as well as many parks and an extensive pedestrian trail system. The city’s five public parks include Heritage Park, which is home to an amphitheater, pavilion, volleyball court and Frisbee golf course. Each year this community of 10,000 comes together for its Family Festival, a week-long celebration featuring a golf tournament, family fun run, carnival, parade and fireworks.

Founded by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who began settling the area in the 1870s, Highland City still maintains the atmosphere of family-oriented living that those pioneers brought with them more than a century ago. Residents enjoy the quiet, outside-of-the-city atmosphere that Highland provides despite being located just 20 minutes from Salt Lake City and 20 minutes from Provo. When searching for somewhere to spend time with and raise their families, many people find that location in Highland. Our city is known for its large home lots; this open space contributes to Highland’s peaceful, country feeling as do the city’s network of trails and parks and close proximity to the Wasatch Mountains and American Fork Canyon. Residents have a wide variety of outdoor recreation opportunities just outside their doors including the Murdock Canal Trail, which connects multiple Utah County communities and allows walking, jogging, bike riding and horseback riding. The city’s Highland Glen Park offers more than 80 acres of green space including a pond where residents can fish and children can take fishing lessons. With Utah State Highway 92 running

28

through the city, Highland is the gateway to American Fork Canyon with its camping and hiking opportunities and the famous Timpanogos Cave, which attracts thousands of visitors per year. The city has a growing business district and is eager to see new businesses open their doors in the area. Shopping opportunities are not limited, however, as residents are only a few minutes away from major retail shopping areas and employment opportunities. Youth are able to receive a high-quality education in the city through the schools of Alpine School District, and those seeking higher education have several nearby options including Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. Many employees of these institutions of higher learning have found homes in Highland; in fact, Highland City is collecting people from all over the world as they are drawn to Utah Valley’s educational opportunities and end up staying in the area and moving to Highland to raise their families. Through cooperative agreements with surrounding cities, Highland is able to provide full fire, police and ambulance service to residents. The city also worked with


other cities to develop the North County Equestrian Park, making this park available to Highland residents. Those interested in the arts can enjoy local music and theater groups as well as a wide variety of arts classes taught by professional-level artists. In the summer, Highland residents commemorate the Scottish heritage of Highland settlers with Highland Fling Days, a week-long celebration full of activities from traditional Scottish competition events to a baby contest, a rodeo, a youth dance, a parade and fireworks. Mayor Mark S. Thompson The quality of life is high in Highland, with something for everyone to enjoy. We invite all to explore and enjoy the family-oriented atmosphere that has attracted approximately 16,000 people to call Highland their home. Mayor Mark S. Thompson

I love Pleasant Grove. I love living in Pleasant Grove, working in Pleasant Grove, and serving as the mayor of Pleasant Grove. I love these things because it is such a great community, full of core services and wonderful life-enriching amenities. I believe that Pleasant Grove is such a great place because it is full of great people. Pleasant Grove residents expect an equal level of greatness from their city officials. We work every day to meet, and exceed, that expectation. Our vision is to become the best-run city in the state. The only way we can accomplish that vision is to meet the needs of the residents. As a city we have many needs that require time and money – public safety, roads, sanitation and economic development – as well as amenities that make all of our lives better. We cannot afford all of these needs at once. As citizens and officials, we must work together to first identify and then prioritize our needs. We are currently experiencing wonderful economic growth throughout the city. Businesses of all sizes are deciding to locate in Pleasant Grove and provide additional goods and services to our residents. We must continue to build upon our economic foundation and grow the tax base so fundamental to generating the funds required to

fully meet our needs. We will continue to see progress in this area. Each day we are further down the path described above. Each day we are improving the quality of life and business in Pleasant Grove. I look forward to working more with you to prioritize, and meet, our various needs within the community. Of course, simply discussing needs is only the Mayor Michael W. Daniels first step; we must then work consistently to address them. Benjamin Franklin observed that, “Well done is better than well said.” We want to be a community of doers. As we work toward the future, let us also take advantage of the wonderful opportunities available today. I hope that you will take advantage of the many benefits

New PG position over library, the arts A newly formed position in Pleasant Grove City has responsibility for the growth, development and improvement of both the city’s library and its arts programs. Sheri Britsch, Pleasant Grove City’s new library and arts director, began her job in January of 2014. She oversees all operations at the Pleasant Grove City Library and is also over the city’s cultural and arts programs including the Historic Preservation Committee, Center Stage Youth Performers, Pleasant Grove Orchestra, Pleasant Grove Players, Utah Children’s Choir, Concerts in the Park, Visual Arts and the Pleasant Grove Arts Commission. She’s also involved with festivals such as Strawberry Days and the Pleasant Grove Jubilee.“I think Pleasant Grove has so much talent and it’s fantastic that the city supports it and encourages it,” Britsch said. The arts used to be managed by the city’s leisure director, who also had responsibility for the city’s cemetery, playgrounds and sports programs. The arts were eventually split away from that position; the city’s previous library director served as Pleasant Grove’s culture and arts director for about six months before she retired. When Britsch was hired, she was given the new title of library and arts director.

Most of her time is spent as library director. Britsch’s office is in the Pleasant Grove City Library, and she is working to help the library grow and modernize. Furniture obtained from a University Mall store that was going out of business has provided opportunities to display new books and other collections, and new furniture has also been used to create a fun area for teens. Plans for the near future include moving the children’s books downstairs. “Right now we have books but not really a place for kids to get on the floor and look at the books,” Britsch said. The downstairs space is an open area with a curtain divider that can be pulled out to divide the space. The plan is to create a children’s collections area on one side and a programming area on the other that can be expanded if necessary by removing the curtain. To make the move possible, the library has been working with students at Brigham Young University to design a book elevator which will be installed in the library.

Chorale members to sing in national festival Members of the American Forkbased Timpanogos Chorale are leaving Utah Valley in May to join a larger collection of singers from around the country and sing in a national patriotic festival at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. More than 300 voices, including 23 from the Timpanogos Chorale, will perform in the 2014 National Memorial Day Choral Festival on Sunday, May 25. Founded in 2008 with a hope of attracting more attention to the true meaning of the Memorial Day holiday, the festival annually attracts choirs who join together to sing about America’s past and present heroes. This year’s program of patriotic music will be led by Dr. Craig Jessop, the festival’s artistic director and the former music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Cheri Christensen, program manager for the Timpanogos Chorale, said the chorale had to audition for the honor of participating the festival. Chorale members will leave on Friday, May 23, and spend two days with the other choirs rehearsing the approximately 15 pieces they will sing in the festival concert. There will be soloists at the concert and accompaniment by a full orchestra. “Our choir isn’t that large and to be part of a 300-plus person choir is an entirely different sound, it’s a different experience,” Christensen said. The Timpanogos Chorale was established more than 50 years ago as a church choir. When that choir was disbanded, the members decided to keep the choir going as a community organization. It currently rehearses once a week for two hours, although those going to Washington, D.C., are having extra rehearsals to prepare. The chorale performs two concerts per year and averages about 50 members. Chorale members volunteer their time to participate and despite holding a few fundraisers, those traveling to Wash-

ington, D.C., had to come up with most of the trip’s funding themselves. The choir has traveled inside and outside of Utah in the past to perform, but hasn’t done so in recent years. “It’s just a Members of the Timpanogos Chorale perform in concert. grand adventure. accompaniment by the Herriman ComEveryone’s really munity Orchestra, on Saturday, May excited about it,” Christensen said. 10.

Local doctor finding ways to improve your health Visiting a chiropractor usually means something has gone wrong and you are in pain, or you are looking for a better way to improve your health. The following is the experience of a Father who was in a car accident in which someone rear-ended him while he was stopped at a stoplight. Speaking of the incident he said, “My two young boys were also inside and hurting a great deal afterward. Fortunately for our family, we have been taken care of by Dr. Baird and his competent staff at Pinnacle Chiropractic. I had never been to a chiropractor before, and so felt nervous about it. Dr. Baird did an excellent job explaining not only what we would be doing, but also why we would be doing it. They have created a welcoming environment which was as enjoyable for my sons as it was for me. The staff treated them like friends and my sons couldn’t wait to come to their Monday appointments, also known as “cookie day”. They worked around our busy schedules, and set reasonable expectations. They periodically showed me my measurable progress, but even more than that,

I noticed my progress in how much better I felt in all aspects of my life. Dr. Baird discussed with me early on that they did not just want to get me back to where I was before the accident, but to actually improve my overall health. We worked not only to ease the pain, but also to rebuild and improve my strength to help prevent future injuries.” Through 10 years of seeing hundreds of patients, Dr. Baird is dedicated to use his experience in helping you as you seek solutions to your healthcare needs; he does this by pinpointing the cause of the problem and then explaining different options for your care. As you are looking for answers, Call Pinnacle Chiropractic and see what we can do for you.

Trevor Manning Pleasant Grove High School 2013 Educator of the Year Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce Enrollment in choirs at Pleasant Grove Junior High School has exploded during the past 10 years, with much of that growth due to Trevor Manning the work of PGHS choir teacher Trevor Manning. Named 2013 Educator of the Year by the Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce, Manning has made an already excellent program legendary. When he took over as choir director 10 years ago, he had 125 students in Intermediate and Advanced Choir; since then, that number has doubled to more than 300. Enrollment in Chamber Choir has tripled, and the school’s Advanced Women’s Choir was formed after enrollment in women’s choirs skyrocketed. The Men’s Chorus had about 35 students enrolled 10 years ago and was only available during one half of the year; this year, the chorus has 98 members and students have the option to take it all year long.

Manning said he tries to foster an environment where students can both have fun and be successful. “It’s just been focusing on the students that are there and trying to teach them music that’s accessible and challenging and fun,” Manning said. “I feel like it’s been focusing on who’s there and trying to help them have a great experience.” To Manning, one of the strongest indicators that students were really enjoying his classes was when he started to see an increase in the number of students re-enrolling in choir after taking it in a prior grade. It’s one thing to enroll in a class after hearing it was good from another student; its more personal when a student chooses to return after having their own experience. Six different choir groups are currently offered to PGHS students: Advanced Women’s Choir, Chamber Choir, Men’s Chorus, Women’s Chorus, Beginning Girls Chorus and Beginning Boys Chorus. Manning said the students love variety, and he helps them experience a sampling of all types of music, from classical and folk songs to pop songs and music from movie soundtracks. Since music is only one of his many interests - for example, he also plays competitive racquetball and softball - he understands that students participate in other activities. He supports those activities and doesn’t demand that choir be the only important thing in their lives.

Janice Comer-Miller American Fork High School Teacher of the Year American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce

Currently in her 34th and last year of teaching, American Fork High School teacher Janice Comer-Miller has spent years helping both students and teachers achieve success in the classroom. She began her career by teaching for one year at Cyprus High School in Magna, then moved to American Fork High, where she has spent the

remainder of her career. As a Career and Technical Education teacher, ComerMiller has taught many different subjects during her time as a teacher. Currently, she teaches business law, desktop publishing and Law and Society, a social studies class that serves as an introduction to law and the judicial system. She helps her students pursue rigorous standards and uses proven, data-driven methods that bring an innovative and contemporary feel to her classroom. In her law classes, Comer-Miller frequently utilizes examples of current events, something the students enjoy. She believes studying law helps students learn critical-thinking skills because there’s always two sides to an issue. “I think it teaches them to think a little deeper,” she said. Comer-Miller enjoys knowing she has had an impact on many students’ lives over the years as well as watching students begin to comprehend what they’re being taught. “I think the best part is the “a-ha” moment. When that happens, you can see it in a student’s eyes, that they’ve got it. That’s really rewarding,” she said. Outside of the classroom, Comer-Miller has worked hard to help new teachers as they start their own teaching careers. She has led AFHS’s Global Mentoring Committee, through which experienced teachers provide a support system for new teachers. The support is important because

After changing his career from engineering to teaching and taking a job at Lone Peak High School 10 years ago, Craig Smith has built the school’s AP Calculus program into one of the Craig Smith leading programs in Utah. In 2013, he had 240 students take the AP Calculus exam and had a pass rate of 83 percent. In comparison, the state average pass rate was only 65 percent. “I tell the kids that literally my goal is to have every one of them pass that test,” Smith said. In addition to assisting more students to pass the AP test, Smith has helped attract more students into Calculus at the school. He began teaching Calculus during his third year at Lone Peak; at that time, there were four Calculus classes and about 76 students took the AP exam. Smith is now teaching seven Calculus classes, making it the only subject he teaches. Typically, 10 to 15 percent of high school seniors take AP Calculus; at Lone Peak, about 28 percent of seniors complete Calculus. “I just try really hard to make it the kind of class that anybody who’s motivated can succeed in,” he said. “I try to make my focus 100 percent the kid.” Smith had spent 15 years as an electrical engineer before deciding to switch his career to teaching. Changes at the small business he worked in got him thinking about redirecting his career, and teaching had always intrigued him because his father was a teacher for 30 years. Smith entered a state program which allowed professionals to start teaching without any teacher training, and the first class he was given at Lone Peak was the first class he had ever taught. Since he was unsure how to treat his students as “students,” Smith decided to take the advice of an associate and treat his students in a way he did understand: like coworkers. “I told them that I would treat them as a peer” in the workplace and not in a condescending fashion, Smith said. “The kids seemed to respond to that.” Becoming a teacher was an amazing change for Smith. He thought the job would be good because it would give him more time with his family, but he didn’t expect to love the job like he does. “It really just fits my personality. I just love working with the kids and trying to help them,” he said. Regarding Calculus, “I love that it’s a challenging subject for nearly everyone … and I like being that person that can help them through it,” he said.

the first few years can be overwhelming for new teachers. “We try very, very hard at the high school to mentor our new teachers, to have them be successful so that they’ll stay with the profession,” she said. High schools must go through an accreditation process every few years, and Comer-Miller has assisted on multiple accreditation committees for AFHS, helping the school determine its strengths and its weaknesses. She also serves as the CTE coordinator over all the CTE teachers at American Fork High.

American Fork City representatives will make a presentation to the Utah County Commission in June 2014 to request funding to help with new development at Art Dye Park in American Fork. The large 73-acre park located at 550 E. 100 North currently has three softball fields plus a large open space that can be used for soccer and football. The park also includes an 18-hole Frisbee golf course and a recreational trail. In 2012, American Fork purchased nine additional acres for the park with plans to make significant additions. The Utah County Commission has agreed to contribute some funding to the park’s new development because of the regional significance those developments would have for northern Utah County. The new development would give the park a total of nine softball/baseball fields and add tennis courts, pickle ball courts, horseshoe pits and new picnic tables and barbecue pits. Plans for improvements at the park also include enlarging its trail system, and a splash pad is being considered. Having nine ball fields one place would enable the park to host large tournaments and other regional activities, making Art Dye a truly regional park serving northern Utah County. Projected cost for the developments on the new nine acres plus work inside the existing park is approximately $8.7 million.
