With a booming retail selection, a concentration of arts organizations, a large variety of recreational opportunities and a favorable climate for all sizes of business, American Fork City is the heart of northern Utah County in more ways than just geographical. People from inside and outside this community of 27,000 have discovered that American Fork embodies the idea of “modern development, small town charm.” “It’s quality of life. The quality of life here is unmatched,” said Debby Lauret, executive director of the American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce. American Fork is the gateway to American Fork Canyon, has its own boat harbor on Utah Lake and is home to the largest skateboard park in the state. It’s home to a regional hospital, the Alpine School District’s administrative offices and the Timpanogos Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It has a high concentration of arts organizations, including the American Fork Symphony, the Wasatch Winds and Caleb Chapman Music, a music school nationally recognized for its jazz music program and its Crescent Super Band, which has been invited to perform in 2013 in New York City’s Carnegie Hall. The city is home to a wide variety of businesses from mom and pop stores to major retail chains. Recent business openings in American Fork include Gordmans, a nationwide retailer; GOFoods Global, a company specializing in premium-quality food reserves; Quality Used Office Furniture, a provider of commercial-grade used office furniture; Cross Marine Projects, a full-service commercial diving and marine construction company; and Take A Break Spas & Billiards, a company specializing in spas, billiard tables and game room furnishings. “We feel that the recession is basically over and we have a lot of people that are living their passions, living their dreams,” Lauret said. “It’s a great opportunity to grow their businesses.” Lauret is currently in her 10th year as executive director of the American Fork Chamber, making her the longesttenured chamber director in Utah County. She was featured as one of Utah Valley Magazine’s “Fab 50” people of Utah Valley in the publication’s March/April 2013 issue. “My passion is just helping the American dream happen for people,” Lauret said. The American Fork Area Chamber of Commerce provides many activities during the year that help business owners network and learn how to grow their businesses as well as be involved in giving back to the community. These activities include a Halloween 5K fun run that raises money
Debby Lauret for cancer and autism organizations, Sub-forSanta efforts, an annual golf tournament raising money for autism, the Women in Business Conference and the Steel Days steak fry. An exciting new project the chamber will begin this year will help local businesses boost their online presence. Lauret said the chamber will be getting a new website where chamber members will be able to have “landing pages” where webpage visitors can visit and view more about their businesses. Also through the new website, members will be able to develop their own mobile apps for their businesses. “It’s the latest and greatest in marketing online,” Lauret said. “It’s a large investment by our chamber to provide for our businesses.”

For long-term residents or new move-ins, the beautiful community of Pleasant Grove offers a unique combination of family life, quality of life and business opportunity. “It’s a great place for living due to its quality of life, but it’s also very business friendly,” said David Larson, executive director of the Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce. “It’s got an excellent talent pool of people based on its proximity to the universities.” The city is located within minutes of Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. Recreational opportunities in Pleasant Grove are many, both in local parks and nearby canyons. The city’s Manila Park features a pond where locals can fish and swim as well as Discovery Park, an area with educational, fun activities for children. The city’s rodeo grounds feature a rodeo each year during the city’s annual celebration, Strawberry Days. On Thursday nights throughout the summer, residents enjoy the Pleasant Grove Promenade, an event that includes live entertainment and a variety of vendors selling local produce and
boutique items. What really makes the city special, however, is the people themselves, Larson said. Long-time residents have created a culture of support for one another, “but even those that have moved in recently, they feel comfortable here, they feel safe here, they feel that it’s a place where they can grow their families and be a part of the community themselves,” he said. Similarly, when it comes to doing business in Pleasant

Grove, local business owners provide a strong support network and a great willingness to aid others. “The city itself is very welcoming to businesses and is really interested in seeing high quality businesses enter the area and seeing businesses that are already located here thrive and grow,” Larson said. “It’s an excellent climate in which to locate a business and grow a business or to move an established business to and really feel a great support from the city and from other businesses to do well and to thrive.” Pleasant Grove has a charming downtown area with historic buildings and a strong retail presence along State Street, a major thoroughfare through the city. A new freeway exchange taking traffic through now vacant land has created an opportunity for new construction of office space or retail businesses. The Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce provides opportunities for business owners to gain professional development and skills enhancement, Larson said. The chamber also helps link businesses with chambers and entities in other communities. “There is a very real sense of business community and you feel it from the chamber board of directors all the way down. If there are challenges or things that business owners are facing, they can come to chamber events to gain help, gain advice and receive some training,” Larson said. “It’s a great way for a business owner to really feel like they’re part of the community and to be a part of it.”

Since being discovered by fur trappers, settled by Mormon pioneers and incorporated in 1853, American Fork has grown to become Utah’s 15th largest city. The city, which takes its name from the American Fork River, balances small-town charm with big-city job opportunities. Conveniently located just off Interstate 15 between Provo and Salt Lake City, it is an ideal location for commuters, families and businesses. Many businesses are choosing to relocate to American Fork because it offers a quality workforce and way of life. Serving more than 135,000 residents in the surrounding northern Utah County area, American Fork is the economic hub of one of the nation’s fastest growing communities. Large-scale retailing has come to the west side of the city with The Meadows shopping center, while the city’s downtown area still maintains its historic character. The Utah Valley Business Park is home to a variety of technol-
ogy companies such as Henry Schein, Domo and Orange Soda. The North Pointe Business Park is home to Certiport, Fidelity, HP, AMP Security, Morinda Bioactives, and many more. The city serves as a regional hub for education as well, serving as home to the Alpine School District headquarters. Recreation and leisure needs are met by a fitness center, year-round recreation programs and the popular Fox Hollow Golf Course. The city boasts more than 25 parks,

including many playgrounds. Recreational and camping opportunities abound, from the American Fork Boat Harbor at Utah Lake to Timpanogos Cave National Monument and the Alpine Scenic Loop located in beautiful American Fork Canyon.

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

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

Located on a bench area of the Wasatch Mountain Range in northern Utah County, Highland gets its name from the Scottish Highlands. It was officially incorporated as a city in 1977 and is home to about 16,000 residents. Highland is home to numerous trails, including a portion of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, a trail following the shoreline formed by ancient Lake Bonneville that will eventually stretch to more than 280 miles. In addition, Timpanogos Cave National Monument, a collection of caverns accessed by a 1.5-mile hike up a mountainside in American
Fork Canyon, is accessed through Highland, as is the Alpine Scenic Loop, a scenic drive through the mountains east of the city. Inside the city are a variety of city parks for residents to enjoy, including the Town Center Splash Pad which is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year. Residents come together to celebrate their community during the annual Highland Fling, a weeklong event full of activities including a grand parade, a fine art show, a 5K run, entertainment and fireworks. The Highland Town Market also offers an opportunity for the community to gather, with various vendors of local produce, handmade crafts and savory treats gather in Highland’s Heritage Park every Saturday from mid-August through late September. The city’s arts council is active in the community presenting arts classes and demonstrations as well as musical and dramatic performances.

Pleasant Grove City, known as Utah’s City of Trees, was settled by Mormon pioneers in September of 1850. The pioneers were attracted by a small grove of trees which provided hope for a land with water and rich soil. The city was incorporated in 1855. Because of the abundant strawberry crop each summer, the city began celebrating “Strawberry Days” every year. Strawberry Days is now the longest continuously running community celebration in Utah. Approximately 34,000 people now call Pleasant Grove home. The city has experienced growth in both its residential and commercial areas in recent years, with a new commercial area adjacent to Interstate 15 receiving attention from many different businesses looking for a great place to call home. Site plan approvals have been made recently for doTERRA International’s global corporate campus and a Walmart Neighborhood Market. High mountains and scenic canyons and foothills extend along Pleasant Grove’s eastern boundary, placing outdoor recreation opportunities literally minutes away from residents. The beautiful Battle Creek Falls are within a halfmile hike of the city and additional trails extend up Grove
Creek Canyon. Inside the city limits, the recreation opportunities continue with a variety of choices ranging from fitness classes at the Pleasant Grove Community Center to swimming at the Veterans Memorial Pool. Pleasant Grove is fortunate to be home to one of the most unique and popular parks in Utah County: Discovery Park, an area featuring a huge wooden castle and “discovery” zones where children can learn and explore while they play.

Program helps keeps dollars local Steve Densley, former Utah Valley Chamber president, relates, “Shopping at locally owned businesses puts three times the dollars into our economy. A landmark study found that out of $100 dollars spent at a local business, $45 dollars stays in the community. Shop elsewhere and those dollars go to support someone else’s community.” Your money supports schools, parks, roads, police, fire and other local government services. Think about it: when you buy locally, the sales tax, the salaries of employees and the profits all recirculate in our valley, benefiting other businesses and local governments. According to the Utah’s Own website, “When you buy locally produced or grown products, it builds our Utah economy since a dollar spent on a Utah product creates the effect of adding $4 to $6 to our Utah economy. An added benefit to protecting our environment is to reduce our carbon footprint for these products. Other benefits include products that have the best possible flavor, texture and quality on fresh products produced and delivered in our neighborhoods. Access to local organic foods is also enhanced. You even sustain the
Utah rural lifestyle for farmers and ranchers and preserve their open spaces, clean air and water quality.” American Fork City sponsors a program called AF Shop Local. This program provides exclusive deals to local residents and chances to win gift certificates from local merchants. One email from the city is sent out at the beginning of the month with offers from participating merchants. The monthly deal is valid for the entire month. Currently, there are several merchants who participate in the program including World Class Auto, Grease Monkey, Azalea’s Day Spa and Salon, Flipside Café, T & C Tire, Chick-fil-A, Pier 49 Pizza and Rib City Grill. Each month the participating merchants provide $30 worth of gift certificates, which are given out on a firstcome, first-served basis. Winners receive an email notification and then email Debby Lauret at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the gift certificates. To sign up for the program, send an email to Debby at email@example.com to have your email added to the list. This list will not be sold or used for any other purpose.

Studies show that for every dollar spent in a locally owned business, three times more of that dollar stays in our economy than would be the case with a national retailer. 2. You embraced the character of our community. We wouldn’t want our houses to look like everyone else’s. So why would we want our community to look that way? 3. You created local jobs. Local businesses are far better than chains or giant online retailers at creating more jobs per consumer dollars spent. 4. You helped the environment. You conserved energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging. Walkable business districts reduce sprawl and automobile use. 5. You benefited from our passion and expertise. As your friends and neighbors, we have a vested interest in knowing how to serve you. We’re passionate and knowledgable about what we do - why not take advantage of it? 6. You kept your tax dollars here. Spending locally instead
of online ensures that your tax dollars are reinvested where they belong - right here in our community! 7. You encouraged innovation and product diversity. Whether brick and mortar retail or local online, service providers or manufacturers, local business innovators ensure marketplace diversity - important in any economy. 8. You loved your neighbors. We know you and you know us. Locally owned businesses link us together in a web of social and economic relationships. Studies show that locals donate to community causes at twice the rate of chains. 9. You kept the American dream alive. You nurtured entrepreneurship, which fuels prosperity by serving as a means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class. This is the foundation of our American economy. 10. You made us a destination. The more interesting and unique we are as a community, the more we will attract new neighbors and visitors. This benefits everyone!
Jamestown Jewelry: Custom jewelry to last a lifetime When Jim Oviatt stepped into a jewelry making class at Emery High School, he probably didn’t imagine that it would become his career. After taking the class twice, however, he found that it was something he had a natural knack for and really enjoyed doing. He asked his teacher for more information and was given a pamphlet for GIA, a jewelry school in Carlsbad California. After completing a degree in Jewelry Manufacturing Arts and graduating from his Gold and Precious Metals course with honors, Jim returned to his native Utah and eventually took a position as a jeweler at Bangerter Jewelers. He worked there for seven years before he was offered a chance to purchase the store and run it as his own. He did so and renamed it Jamestown Jewelry. He prides himself in providing high-quality jewelry and jewelry repairs. He selects only pieces of high-quality for selling in his shop because he knows that he is likely the one who will be repairing them if they don’t last long. “You know that a bride is going to want to wear that wedding ring forever,” says Jim. “I want it to be something that will last.” Jamestown Jewelry boasts one of the largest selection of men’s rings in the region. Through his extensive connections to other manufacturers in the region, he can provide over 200 styles of men’s rings in stock with hundreds more avail-
able upon request. What makes his selection so unique is there a wide variety of alternative metals in addition to the normal gold, silver, and platinum rings. At Jamestown Jewelry you can find rings made of tungsten, titanium, cobalt chrome, stainless steel, ceramic, black zirconium and many others. A particularly interesting style comes from the metallurgists and metal smiths of ancient Japan. These metalworkers perfected layering two or more different types of metal performing elaborate etchings such as those found on samurai swords. When this is done with different kinds steel, it is known as Damascus steel—a beautiful and durable metal. There’s also a Japanese technique for doing this with other precious metals such as gold and silver known as “mokume gane.” This produces stunning patterns that are a combination of two precious metals such as white gold, rose gold, or sterling silver. This is a rare and sought-after skill not available at just any jeweler. Jim also believes in using his store for charitable work. He recently donated twenty pieces of jewelry to be auctioned off to benefit his uncle, who is battling cancer. He is actively seeking other ways to be active in the community. These techniques and other jewelry making techniques have been Jim’s livelihood for over 15 years and the quality and variety shows. You
can bring your jewelry for repairs whether he sold it to your not and can also bring watches in to repair. Best of all, you can create stunning pieces of custom jewelry using the highest quality skill and materials. Come visit Jamestown Jewelry at 476 North 900 West in American Fork.

Sisters see success with downtown delicacies Two sisters’ love of baking has led them to open their own businesses on the historic Main Streets of both American Fork and Pleasant Grove - one offering creative main dishes and the other specialty cupcakes for dessert. Residents can begin their meal at Cravings Bistro, 63 E. Main, American Fork, where owner Angie Wilson specializes in creating a variety of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, food she calls “kid food for adults.” One of her most popular sandwiches is the ABC, which includes Granny Smith apples, candied bacon, cheddar cheese and a homemade caramelized red onion mayonnaise. She’s also known for her tomato basil soup as well as salads and macaroni and cheese. After enjoying their main course, customers can visit Cravings - Alisha’s Cupcakes, 93 S. Main, Pleasant Grove, where Angie’s identical twin sister Alisha Nuttall bakes up decadent desserts like the Better Than What Cupcake, a chocolate cupcake filled with caramel sauce AF-PG Ad Mar 2013.pdf 1 3/22/2013 12:36:14 PM and topped with whipped cream frosting and toffee. Her
Sisters Alisha Nuttall and Angie Wilson operate businesses on the historic Main Streets in American Fork and Pleasant Grove.

Coconut Tres Leche cupcake is also popular. “It’s what I’ve always wanted to do and it’s the customers that make it all worth it, just to see the expressions on their face and hear the feedback,” Wilson said. “You get that relationship with the customers and that’s what I love about it, and the loyalty. People who go out of their way to support both of us, words cant even describe how cool it is.” Nuttall said the two sisters have worked in the food industry since they were 14 years old, working at fast food and mom-and-pop restaurants in their hometown of Nephi. Both liked baking cakes for friends and coworkers, and their creations inspired someone to recommend the sisters start their own cupcake business. They took the advice and began their new home business in April of 2008, naming it Cravings with the motto, “You imagine it, we’ll create it.” Eventually Wilson decided she didn’t like working from home, but she wanted to be her own boss and do a business making sandwiches. Her sister suggested doing a bistro specializing in grilled cheese. “In the restaurant business, we’ve always had adults wanting grilled cheeses,” Wilson said, adding that when she worked as a server at other restaurants, adults would have to order them off of
the kids’ menu. This led to the opening of Cravings Bistro in December of 2011. The two businesses’ name similarity - and the fact that they’re owned by twin sisters - has led to some confusion for customers, but it has helped in promotional efforts as well. After seeing her cupcake business grow, Nuttall applied to appear on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” program. In her first episode, she was the first competitor to be eliminated from the competition, but when she was invited to appear again - in a “redemption” episode - she ended up the winner. The local publicity following Nuttall’s win on “Cupcake Wars” has boosted business at both Cravings - Alisha’s Cupcakes and Cravings Bistro. Nuttall opened her downtown Pleasant Grove location in November of 2012. “Everyone has been really supportive,” she said. “I would not have wanted to move anywhere else.” Their businesses are different, but the two sisters have one product in common they both sell: sugar cookies. Both bake their own and admit they have a friendly competition going on. They like to hear which cookie customers prefer - and it’s OK if people prefer the other sister’s cookie. “It’s a fun competition,” Nuttall said.
Bank of AF celebrates 100 years One hundred years ago, a doctor joined with a group of business leaders and farmers to create a safe, secure and local bank for the residents of American Fork and its surrounding communities. Incorporated on Feb. 5, 1913, People’s State Bank of American Fork, - now Bank of American Fork - has become Utah’s community bank leader. Bank of American Fork is spending 2013 celebrating its 100 years of history along with its customers. As Utah’s largest community bank, Bank of American Fork currently has just under $1 billion in assets and 13 fullservice branches in Utah, Salt Lake and Davis counties. However, despite its growth and decades of success, the business still emphasizes the individual customer and the idea of giving back to the community. “The philosophy of the bank is that the customer comes first, then the employees, then
In the early 1920s, this building was home to People’s State Bank of American Fork, now known as Bank of American Fork.

the community and finally the shareholders of the bank. We believe if you do it in that order, the business will take care of itself,” said Richard Beard, president and CEO of Bank of American Fork. The bank’s first two decades went smoothly, but the stock market crash of 1929 and the resulting financial upheaval led People’s State Bank of American Fork to shut its doors to avoid a run on deposits. Unlike many banks across the nation that did the same but never reopened, People’s State Bank of American Fork opened again nine months later after tremendous sacrifice by members of its management, some of them mortgaging their own homes to keep the institution afloat. In the 1960s, the bank made a large investment in upgrading to advanced computerized systems and, as part of its focus on modernization, shortened its name to Bank of American Fork. Its first branch outside American Fork opened in Alpine in 1974. At the center of its operation is the importance of being part of the growth and vitality of the community. Because Bank of American Fork is locally owned, money deposited into the bank is lent back out to residents and organi-
zations along the Wasatch Front rather than across state lines. “Our view is that a bank is, in a sense, a repository of the community’s dreams and hopes,” Beard said. The bank believes in supporting its local communities and has been a generous donor to various local causes over the years. ”When people bank here their money goes back into building the commuRichard Beard nity. This is what it means to truly be a part of the community,” Beard said. “We always seem to have some project we’re working on where we’re trying to support customers and communities.” For more information, visit bankaf.com or a Bank of American Fork branch.

AFHS student wins statewide scholar award A junior high school biology teacher made science interesting and exciting for American Fork student Hailey James. Now a senior at American Fork High School, James’ love for and skill in science have led her to be named Utah’s 2013 General Sterling Scholar, the highest award given as part of the statewide annual Sterling Scholar competition sponsored by the Deseret News and KSL. James was also named Utah’s overall Sterling Scholar in science, one of 13 categories in the competition. Winners are selected in each of these categories, and the General Sterling Scholar is chosen from these 13 winners. “Up until ninth grade I’d kind of not been a very good student. I didn’t feel like there was anything I was particularly good at,” James said. Then she was enrolled in Gerald Dibb’s biology class at American Fork Junior High School. “Instead of being just like a science class, it was this amazing world of doing whatever you want all the time,” she said. James was named General Sterling Scholar at an awards ceremony held Wednesday, March 13, 2013, at Cottonwood High School in Murray. She said winning the award came as a shock. “I did not see that coming at all. I got there and I was just surrounded by all of these incredible people who had just worked so hard and I almost felt like I didn’t belong there because they were just so amazing,” James said. “I don’t think I’ve ever been that surprised.” James has studied many different branches of science but said biology is probably her favorite. Last summer, she did an internship in a lab at the University of Utah doing cellular biology research. At AFHS this year, James has been part of the advanced science lab class, a class where students conduct their own research projects.
She also is a musician, playing percussion in various ensembles including the American Fork High School Marching Band and a steel band in Pleasant Grove. In the meantime, she has maintained a 4.0 grade point average. “I think what sets her apart is her individual drive to better her situation,” said Michelle Ormond, James’ AP biology teacher and advanced science class lab advisor. “She probably has made the most out of her high school experience more than any kid I’ve ever seen.” James’ family has experienced difficulties in recent years and she has had to take on extra responsibilities, but James said she felt it was important to show her younger sister that success is possible despite challenges. Her advice to other students is to work hard and pursue what they think they can do
rather than having others tell them what they can do. “Hard work makes such a difference,” James said. “I’m pretty sure most of my teachers would tell you I’m not the smartest kid in the class but I do work very hard.”

Lone Peak choirs achieving music excellence Whether performing in their home auditorium or in New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Lone Peak High School choir students are showing themselves eager and ready to meet whatever challenge is put in front of them. “We have some incredibly talented kids at this school that have been trained through their school programs, but also a lot of them are taking private voice lessons. They’ve had good success in their music programs and they’ve come with a great discipline and a great thirst for putting things together,” said Lone Peak Director of Choirs Lois Johnson. Approximately 300 students participate in the Lone Peak choir program, which includes the Men’s Chorus, Ladies’ Chorus, A Cappella Choir and Chamber Choir. The Men’s and Ladies’ choruses act as a training ground for singers, giving them a chance to build their musical skills before auditioning for the A Cappella Choir or the school’s premiere singing group, the Chamber Choir. During the 2012-13 school year, Lone Peak choir students earned an invitation to participate in the National
Youth Choir in New York City. It was the fourth time during Johnson’s 16 years at Lone Peak that her students had traveled to New York to be part of this choir, an honor achieved through her choirs’ performances at other festivals during the year. After arriving in New York City in late February of 2013, Johnson’s A Cappella Choir and Chamber Choir were combined with other choirs from around the country into two large choirs that spent several days learning music and working with internationally renowned choir conductors. The effort ended with the two large choirs performing in concert at Carnegie Hall. However, the Lone Peak Chamber Choir was singled out for a special honor that evening, having been selected as one of only two choirs to perform in the concert by themselves, doing their own repertoire. Johnson said that three out of the four times her students have participated in the National Youth Choir program, the Chamber Choir has been selected to perform individually during the Carnegie Hall concert.
Community support lifting PGHS wrestling program At Pleasant Grove High School, community support has resulted in one of the most successful wrestling programs in the state of Utah. The Pleasant Grove Vikings have taken state in wrestling for three years in a row, most recently at the 5A championship held in February of 2013 at Utah Valley University. Four years ago, the team took second in state, losing by only one point. “I think we have the biggest crowds. We have a full house at our wrestling matches,” said Pleasant Grove High School Wrestling Coach Brock Moore. “I think we probably have the biggest crowd in the 5A tournament.” These crowds are an indication of the kind of community support the program and its wrestlers enjoy. Moore said the program’s success goes back to the hard work of Coach Darold Henry, who spent decades building up the Pleasant Grove High wrestling program. Moore, who took on the job as wrestling coach in 2001, used to wrestle for Coach Henry. “He set up a strong tradition,” Moore said. Others community members have helped build and strengthen the program as well; in addition, local businesses purchase advertising banners and ads in the wres-

tling programs, which raises money to send PG wrestlers to national tournaments where they have opportunities to obtain college scholarships. Moore said the youth and high school wrestling programs have similar expectations and standards, meaning that by the time the students get to high school, they know what will be required of them. The goal is to teach the wrestlers to be accountable, dependable and disciplined and to set and work toward achieving goals.
Centers space simulations help teach teamwork Already known as a gathering place for community events and arts instruction, Stone Gate in Pleasant Grove has now embraced a new challenge: allowing children and adults to experience the mysteries of space travel while learning life skills in the process. Located in a renovated historic church building at 886 W. 2600 North, Stone Gate is now operating the Discovery Space Center, a grouping of four spaceship simulators where groups must work as a team to complete their assigned missions successfully. Participants operate their “spacecraft” with laptop computers while staff behind the scenes react to the participants’ actions and decisions, trying to give them as realistic an experience as possible. At full capacity, the simulators can accommodate up to 50 students while another 50 gather in the classroom area for instruction. The space center is open to groups such as school classes, corporate organizations and families. The decision to build the space center came after Alpine School District announced the closure of the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center, a popular program located in Pleasant Grove’s Central Elementary School. Over the years, thousands of students participated in simulations at the McAuliffe center. “We wanted that experience to continue and we wanted to keep it in Pleasant Grove,” said Jennie Johnson, managing director of Stone Gate. The decision was made to convert Stone Gate’s extra storage space into a space center. When word got out about Stone Gate’s project, many former employees of the McAuliffe center eagerly signed up to help. Construction on the Discovery Space Center began in January 2013 and in only two months the center was complete and ready for action. The Bott family, which owns and operates Stone Gate, built and funded the majority of the space center. Discovery Space Center Assistant Director BJ Warner

Murdock Canal Trail to connect communities In 2013, a new trail is becoming available to residents of northern Utah County that will have them walking, running and biking throughout much of Utah County and even north into the Salt Lake County area. The Murdock Canal Trail will officially open on May 18, 2013, as a 17-mile-long trail extending through seven cities: Orem, Lindon, Pleasant Grove, American Fork, Cedar Hills, Highland and Lehi. The trail will be available year-round for walking, jogging, cycling, skateboarding and even equestrian use. Eventually the trail will be connected to the Jordan River Parkway, a trail that follows the Jordan River from Utah Lake through Salt Lake County to the Great Salt Lake, and the Provo River Trail, which runs from Utah Lake through the city of Provo to the mouth of Provo Canyon. Formerly an open canal, the Murdock Canal has been enclosed with pipes, creating the opportunity to utilize the ribbon of land covering the piping as a recreational trail for residents. Enclosing the canal removed the danger of the open canal while turning it into something that every-
one can use, said Deon Giles, parks and recreation director for Pleasant Grove City. The trail will be maintained through agreements between the cities and Utah County, he said. No motorized vehicles will be allowed, and because of limited lighting, the trail will close each evening at dusk. Restrooms and electricity will be available at each trailhead.

Art Dye Park to become a regional attraction Utah County and American Fork City are teaming up to create a large regional park serving not only American Fork residents, but also recreation enthusiasts from throughout northern Utah County. Representatives from American Fork City approached the county in March 2013 and proposed that the county help financially with new development at Art Dye Park, a 73-acre park located at 550 E. 100 North in American Fork. Shortly thereafter, the county announced that it would help fund the project. In 2012, American Fork purchased nine additional acres for the park with plans to make significant additions. “We master planned that to finish the whole complex to make a nice huge facility,” said Derric Rykert, parks and recreation director for American Fork City. The county commission agreed to contribute funding to the park’s new development because of the regional significance those developments would have for northern Utah County, he said. Projected cost for the improvements on the new nine
acres plus some other work inside the existing park is $8.7 million; the exact amount the county will contribute has not yet been determined. Currently, Art Dye Park 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. The new development would give the park a total of nine softball/baseball fields and add tennis courts, pickleball courts, horseshoe pits and new picnic tables and barbecue pits. The trail system through the park would be enlarged and a splash pad is being considered as well. Having that many ball fields in 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. Timing of the park’s new development depends on when funding is obtained, but Rykert said the city would like to begin working on Phase 1 of the project within a one- to three-year period.

Work underway for hospital expansion, new clinic Work is now underway by American Fork Hospital and Intermountain Medical Group for an 84,000-square-foot expansion to the hospital and a new 85,400-squarefoot Multispecialty Clinic. The hospital expansion, which will be constructed on the south end of the current hospital, will include 10 new operating rooms and 21 emergency room bays. The Multispecialty Clinic will be the new home for many Intermountain Medical Group physicians whose offices are scattered throughout northern Utah County. The new building will also house 12 different clinics with services ranging from an InstaCare to pediatrics to orthopedics. The new clinic will include 97 exam rooms, five laboratory draw areas and digital imaging suites. The new space will provide

more convenience to patients who need to visit the hospital for tests or procedures while still having their doctor nearby. Completion of the hospital expansion and Multispecialty Clinic is expected by fall 2014. The need for the hospital expansion comes in response to the growing community and the increasing number of local residents who no longer travel north or south for treatment. With new roads in the area such as Pioneer Crossing, 2100 North in Lehi, SR-92, and North County Boulevard, it’s much faster to get to American Fork Hospital. Thirteen new surgeons have also joined the hospital’s medical staff in the last five years. Projections show north Utah County will grow 30 percent by the year 2020. The average size of the current hospital’s operating rooms is 322 square feet. The new operating rooms will be at least 550 square feet and come equipped with cuttingedge technology including integrated video monitoring, mobile imaging and fully equipped orthopedic rooms. The
new Emergency Department area will have two trauma bays and other specialty rooms such as OB/GYN and pediatrics. Patient treatment and staff work spaces will be significantly enhanced and designed to ensure comfortable, efficient patient care. “Northern Utah County has seen tremendous growth in the past several years that we anticipate will continue,” said Mike Olson, hospital administrator/CEO. “This expansion will help us continue to provide essential services to the growing number of residents in a convenient and efficient manner.” Costs are estimated at about $52 million for the hospital expansion, part of which will come from community philanthropy. Utah Valley Healthcare Foundation, the charitable funding arm of American Fork Hospital, has launched a community-wide campaign for $1.5 million. “We appreciate the hard work of our doctors and clinic staff in north Utah County. It’s been exciting to give them an opportunity to plan this new space. There is great energy from having many caregivers come together in one building that’s designed specifically for their unique patients,” said Jacque Durfey, assistant operations director at Intermountain Medical Group.
