Lawsuit filed by Fairview rancher claims ultrasound caused deaths of 92 sheep By Michael Kruse FAIRVIEW A rancher is suing a Mt. Pleasant veterinarian for allegedly causing the death of 92 sheep. Michael Cox of Fairview claims that Dr. Eric Dent of the Sanpete Veterinary Clinic was negligent in performing a rectal ultrasound on his sheep. Cox claims the effects from the ultrasound were the cause of the death of his sheep. The lawsuit filed in the Sixth District Court in January by James Gillespie, attorney, on behalf of Cox alleges Dent failed to possess and exercise that degree of skill, diligence and attention which may ordinarily be expected of trustworthy veterinarians practicing in the defendant s community. Cox had Dent examine his 106 sheep on July 31, 2013, and Dent used a rectal ultrasound system to test all the ewes for pregnancy. The next day one of the ewes died, and all the sheep had been showing negative effects from the testing. The pregnant ewes had to have the lambs aborted, and, in the end, 92 of the sheep died. According to Cox s complaint, an examination of the dead sheep showed collections of pus known as abscesses in the sheep s abdomen and found that the injuries were sustained due to rectal tearing after the ultrasound. Cox claims his sheep were registered pure-bred Suffolk ewes and valued the ewes at $2,000 apiece. Cox is asking the court for just under $270,000 in damages for the cost of the sheep and other financial loss incurred as result of Dent s alleged negligence. In Dent s answer filed by David Richards, a Salt Lake City attorney, Dent claims he cannot be liable for damages that Cox failed to mitigate. Richards said the veterinarian followed his training and the correct procedures he learned in school. Richards said there can t be any negligence if proper produces were followed. Although Richards admitted the sheep died due to the effects of the ultrasound, he said there is no evidence that Dent acted inappropriately or with negligence. He said he didn t know why the sheep died after the ultrasound. It s still a mystery, Richards said. Richards also said Cox is overstating the value of the sheep and that the value of the sheep is one of the biggest (See Lawsuit on A4) It s all bad, county attorney says of careless sex by young people By Doug Lowe Managing editor MANTI Sanpete County Attorney Brody Keisel shakes his head and says, It s all bad. Then he repeats the three words more slowly and emphatically, It s all bad! He is talking about sexual activity among teens and young adults who can carelessly break the law without realizing it and then suffer life-altering consequences. Uninformed young people may think there is nothing wrong with a bit of heavy petting, or with sending and receiving what amounts to pornographic text messages (known as sexting ) via a cell phone or internet-connected computer. One Sanpete resident, who is now in his late 20s and asked not to be named, can still hardly believe the trouble he got into with his cell phone. All I did, he asserts, was receive a nude photo from some girl who was 17 and then delete it from my phone. Six years later, he must wait a few more years to get off the stigmatizing registry of sex-offenders, which lumps him, he says, with real pedophiles, rapists and kidnappers. Before going onto the sex-offender registry, he had to spend months behind bars. While locked up, he claims he was sexually assaulted by other inmates because he had been labeled as a child-molesting sex pervert. The young man, who will soon turn 30, isn t telling the whole story, at least not according to Keisel s recollection. Keisel should know, because he was the attorney who prosecuted and convicted him. The man not only received nude selfies (photos of one s self taken with a cell phone) from two different 17-year-old girls. He also sent them selfies of his private parts. And, while that is bad enough, his offense was made worse by a little-known part of Utah s (See Careless sex on A2) Mt. Pleasant, Fairview, Fayette all get good news from CIB By Robert Stevens Mt. Pleasant, Fairview and Fayette can now move forward with major construction projects they will undertake with Community Impact Board (CIB) funding in the form of grants and loans announced on Tuesday. At the June 11 meeting of the CIB in Price, funding for the three community projects was finally approved by the board. The dream of building a swimming pool complex in Mt. Pleasant has been floating around for something like 30 years now. And, recently, with the help of a zero interest loan from Splash Pads USA and money they raised from impact taxes and youth fundraising, construction was begun on the first stage of that dream complex a splash pad that is scheduled to open July 4th. After learning of the CIB grant of $1,000,000 and loan of $1,000,000 loan (over 30 years at 2.5 percent interest), Mt. Pleasant Mayor Dave Blackham said, Getting CIB funds for construction of the North Sanpete Aquatic Center is very exciting news. We ve been working with the North Sanpete School District and the Board of Education as well as with Wasatch Academy because all area students (See CIB on A2) Historic home in Manti, vandalized, fire set By Suzanne Dean Publisher MANTI An historic oolite stone house in northwest Manti was vandalized last week and a fire apparently set inside. Two sources indicated youths had been apprehended in the case, but the Messenger was unable to obtain official confirmation of arrests from the Sheriff s Office by press time. After alarms in the center of the city sounded for about 15 minutes around 8 p.m. on Friday June 12, fire crews from Manti and Sterling, volunteers from the Manti Ambulance Association and sheriff s deputies responded to the home at 203 S. 200 West. Fire fighters found a fire in about a 2-foot-square area on the kitchen floor, Manti Fire Chief John Jensen said. There was no one in the house and no flames. It was just smoldering, Jensen said. But it really smoked up the house. It s not going to be cheap to clean it up. A neighbor identified the owner as Carol Trittipo, whose main residence is in California. A friend of the owner who watches the house saw the interior after the fire and said vandals, who apparently entered through a window on the south side of the house, had (See Vandalism on A12) Window on south side of the historic James Cook House at 203 S. 200 West where vandals apparently entered.

2 A2 Central Sanpete Second-grade reading suffering compared to other grades By Michael Kruse MANTI Students in every grade level in the South Sanpete School District showed an increase in reading ability except the reading level in second grade went down, according to a report presented at the recent board of education meeting. Program director Arlene Anderson presented the results of the DIBELS test, a standard- ized test given to students in kindergarten through third grades. The test only assesses reading ability and not comprehension and measures students on their reading ability relative to their grade level. Anderson presented the data that showed students in the district were hitting the benchmark for their grade level. Overall the schools performed well, showing increased improvement in every grade except second. Board member Kathy Frandsen expressed concern about the second grade going down rather than up. Anderson said she had discussion with the principals and said the teachers were going to work with students who may be having a more difficult time reading. Frandsen said part of the problem was aides and paraprofessionals handle most of the students who are struggling instead of teachers. Anderson said she is confident in the principals ability to work with the teachers and put a plan in place. I feel good that principals have set plans, Anderson said. She added that the big thing is for teachers to actively look for the children who may need extra help with reading. She said the data they get from DIBELS is a great resource in zeroing in on potential areas of concern. These tools are phenomenal, they really help us, Anderson said. She talked of how valuable the reports are since she can break it down by grade, by school or even by class to work with individual teachers. Superintendent Kent Larsen pointed out that tests aren t everything, especially since this test does not test reading comprehension, it may not give the most accurate results. An update was given on the summer lunch program. Paul Gottfredson said the program has been successful so far with over 700 kids a day getting lunch in the park. The district brought back the program this year, and it will run until the end of June. The board also reviewed the budget for this coming year and approved funding requests for new ipads and computers. This money had already been set aside in the budget for it but any purchase order over $20,000 needs approval from the board. Careless sex (Continued from A1) complicated sex-crime laws, a part that addresses the issue of sex crimes by someone who is in a position of trust with his victim. That special circumstance happened to apply to the young man, now nearly 30, who got in trouble at 22. He had a job working in a position of trust around the 17-year-old girls, which is how he met the girls with whom he exchanged sexual photos. Defense attorney Camille Neider, who practices mainly in the Ogden area and specializes in helping teens and young adults charged with sex-crimes, believes that the law shouldn t be so complicated, so hard to understand and remember. I get cases all the time, says Neider, where I have to go to the law and look it up it s that complicated. But, first I take out a pen and make sure I know the exact difference in the ages of the two individuals involved how many years and how many days apart they were in age on the date of the alleged offense. Then I go to the law and study the situation. It shouldn t be that complicated, but it is. In most cases the teenagers and young adults who come to Neider had no idea that they were breaking the law. To them, what they were doing seemed okay especially if there was no actual sex involved. As Neider sees it, In one sense, the criminal statutes are overly complicated and then, the flip side is that the sex-offender registry is overly simplistic either you re on it or you re not. Yes, there are some crimes that people view as unforgivable, but there are a whole lot of others that someone should be able to recover from. Back in 2009, the Utah Legislature realized that some parts of Utah s sex law were making too many impulsive and foolish kids into felons. So they tweaked things a bit. But the changes weren t major. But both Neider and Keisel agree that the average teenager can t understand all the different parts of the law what s legal and what isn t. Neider cites a case of hers where the young adult had recently moved to Utah and actually tried to inform himself about our laws governing sex acts. From his reading, he thought it would be safe to go ahead and have a relationship with a 17-year-old he had met online. He continued the flirtation online and on the cell phone. The mutual flirtation escalated to the point where the two were talking about getting together for a date and possibly sex, so they starting sending each other provocative, nude photos. Then wham! The young man suddenly found himself in the slammer for a sexual offense with a penalty worse than if he and the young woman had simply gotten together and engaged in sex. When Keisel first heard of Neider s case, he doubted it could be true, but upon closer examination of various parts of Utah statutes he agreed that if the young man was no more than three years older than the 17-year-old girl, then the so-call sexting was a more serious crime for him than having sex with the minor especially if his flirtation was viewed as enticement. Besides enticement there are other issues that can snare unwary teens and young adults. Issues of consent can arise when a girl friend who is too young has sex, gets dumped and decides to burn her former lover by claiming their sexual activity was not consensual. For teens, abstinence is obviously the safest answer abstinence not only from sex but also from sexting. And, anyone 18 or older needs to abstain from any kind of sex-related involvement with anyone under 18. Simply touching anyone under age 18 in a sexual manner can land young adults in jail depending on all kind of complicating factors like the ages of the parties involved. And not knowing the actual age of the other person is no excuse according to Utah law. Neider recalls one of her clients in his late teens or early twenties who got hauled in by the police and questioned about a girl he admitted dating and having sex with. She had talked to him about having a driver license, about various things going on in her high school and about his not being her first sex partner. Then the police stunned him by revealing she was only 14, which meant he had committed the legal equivalent of rape. All three lawyers interviewed for this story are parents and undoubtedly have the natural desire of all good parents to see that no harm physical, mental, or legal befalls their children. The question is how to best accomplish that. Should Utah s criminal codes regarding sexual behavior and sexting be revised and made more understandable? Maybe even be taught in high school? Would that keep more youngsters on the safe side of the law and morality? Some lawyers are content to leave such questions legislators, educators and religious leaders. But, Neider for one, is outspoken in saying, I think Utah needs to catch up with the times, probably lowering the age of consent a bit, and becoming more realistic about whether or not kids are going to have sex no matter how much we teach them to wait. North Sanpete DUP replaces historic marker north of Peterson Dance Hall By Lindsay Hope PHOTO COURTESY UTAH HIGHWAY PATROL Utah Highway Patrol personnel investigate the rollover accident on S.R. 31. Troy Young, a Carbon County man, was killed in the wreck. Rollover up Fairview Canyon claims life of Carbon County man By Michael Kruse FAIRVIEW A Carbon County man was killed in a rollover accident in Fairview Canyon Saturday morning. Troy Young, 48, was ejected from the cab of the semi he was driving down S.R. 31. Young was not wearing his seatbelt and was dead on arrival. According to the Utah CIB (Continued from A1) will benefit from the swimming pool as will everyone living in the northern part of the county. Fairview s approved requested for CIB funding was to continue the ongoing renovation of their historic city office building which had gone over budget during its reconstruction. The city will use the supplemental CIB funding, a $250,000 grant and Highway Patrol (UHP), witnesses reported Young was driving too fast and at some point the brakes on the semi began to overheat. Young had a backhoe attached to his semi. Young was driving west toward Fairview, and around milepost 2 the truck came around a right-hand bend and ended up in the eastbound lane. Young tried to pull the truck into the westbound lane but overshot the lane, and the truck went up a hillside and rolled. Young was thrown from the cab. The backhoe came detached from the trailer, and the road was closed for several hours while UHP cleaned up the trailer, the semi and the backhoe. UHP is investigating the possibly of drugs involved in the accident. a $150,000 loan (for 30 years at 0.0 percent interest), to help make up the difference between the renovation s original cost estimate of $1,700,000 and the revised projection of $2,100,000. Sanpete County Commissioner Claudia Jarrett said, As our communities grow, so do the needs of our public services. Fairview has done a commendable job preserving the local community s history, while expanding the city building for future generations. This grant and loan is an example of the CIB s commitment to raise the quality of the residents lives in rural Utah. Fayette sought CIB funding for a city-wide road maintenance and overhaul project that they plan to accomplish in phases consisting mostly of roto-milling, laying asphalt and chip sealing. The CIB awarded Fayette a $450,000 grant to start work on the initial phase of that project. FAIRVIEW The North Bend Camp of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) proudly unveiled a new historical marker this week, in place of the old one just north of the Peterson Dance Hall. Two special DUP dignitaries came to town to be part of the new marker s unveiling ceremony. They were International DUP President Maureen Smith and the International DUP Marker Representative Kathy Brimhall. Both dignitaries spoke briefly before the actual unveiling. Having DUP s inter- national leadership attend and speak at the event in Fairview was a special honor, according to Peggy Llewellyn, marker chair of the North Bend Camp. Gone is the crumbling old monument. A beautiful, study new historic marker has taken its place. The previous monument was erected around 1956 and stood until After undergoing repairs on three occasions, the time came when with heavy hearts, the decision had to be made to replace the crumbling marker, said Llewellyn. Indeed, the old marker had reached the point where rocks were falling out and further repair seemed impractical. Several fundraisers were held in order to finance a replacement marker or monument. It took about 18 months for enough money to be raised and for the stone and masonry work to be completed. Thanks were extended by Llewellyn to all who donated so generously. The new monument, made of Sanpete s famous Oolite stone (the same kind used in building the Manti LDS Temple), was quarried out of Manti and erected by Manti s D. L. Bown Masonry. The inscribed plaque on the marker is the same as the previous one and tells a bit of the history of Fairview s settlement.

3 Mt. Pleasant power gets national kudos By Doug Lowe Managing editor MT. PLEASANT The power department of Mt. Pleasant City was recently honored with the gold level of the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) designation by the American Public Power Association (APPA) of Arlington, Va. The RP3 designation for Mt. Pleasant Power was announced May 18 during APPA s annual engineering and operations technical conference in Sacramento. In announcing the designees, Kenneth Stone, an executive with the municipal power utility of Braintree, Mass., who also serves as an APPA officer, underscored the achievement by saying, Utilities that have earned APPA s RP3 designation are implementing best practices for the industry. Shane Ward, Mt. Pleasant s power superintendent, said of the announcement, We re honored to receive the RP3 designation. Our utility staff puts in a lot of hard work to serve this community. RP3 represents a much-appreciated recognition of this hard work. Mayor Dave Blackham gave Ward and his team both a figurative, and a literal, pat on the back for all the great work they do for the citizens of Mt. Pleasant. Our power department is an operation any city would be proud of, said Blackham. Blackham said the department is always teaching and training a continual stream of apprentice crew members, many who leave to take higher paying jobs elsewhere once they ve completed their apprenticeship. Blackham also attributes some part of the department s excellence to their frequent work helping out the power crews of neighboring cities especially Spring City, but also Fairview, Ephraim and Manti whenever extra assistance is needed. The RP3 designation lasts for three years and has three levels: Diamond ( percent), platinum (90-98 percent) and gold (80-89 percent). The percentage is of the possible points in four disciplines : reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. A panel of 18 public power employees reviews the applications to determine the points. For instance, in the discipline of reliability, the application asks questions about the monitoring/ tracking of the utility s reliability (i.e., outages under five minutes, outages over five minutes, major outages from severe weather and planned outages) and about how The Mt. Pleasant Power Department was recently honored with the Reliable Public Power Provider designation by the American Public Power Association. The city team responsible for this achievement includes (back row, L-R) Councilman Kevin Stallings, Utility Accounts Manager Celeste Curtis, Treasurer Dave Oxman, Mayor Dave Blackham, Councilman Monte Bona, Assistant Treasurer Jeanne Tejada, Recorder Jane Banks, (front row) Crew Member Tyler Beesley, Crew Member Taran Taylor, Superintendent Shane Ward, Line foreman Cameron Parry and Apprentice Crew Member Korde Chynoweth. the utility uses this monitoring/ tracking data to improve the utility s overall delivery of power (i.e., checking for the worst-performing circuits, trimming trees, converting overhead wires to underground, installing lightning arresters, etc.). In the discipline of reliability, the application also asks for details on the utility s mutual aid agreements with other utilities in case of power outages, details of the utility s disaster plan and details concerning efforts to prevent theft, vandalism and terrorist attacks. A total of 97 electrical power utilities received the RP3 designation in 2015 and joined 94 others currently having the RP3 designation. Nationwide more than 2,000 communities or states own and operate public power systems as not-for-profit electric utilities, serving over 41 million citizens. Utah has 41 such government-owned electrical systems. Five of those are owned by cities in Sanpete County: Ephraim City, Fairview City, Manti, Spring City and Mt Pleasant City. Mt. Pleasant joining Skyline to Arapeen with road work By Michael Kruse MT. PLEASANT Mt. Pleasant City has agreed to pitch in $5,000 to reopen a road up Power Plant Road beyond the power plant to better connect to Skyline Drive and the Arapeen Trail System. The money will be used to pave the road in order to make it drivable for full-sized vehicles. Kevin Christensen, director of economic development for Sanpete County, said he expects them to be able to open the road to all vehicles in a couple of weeks. However, he would not commit to a date. The road has been closed to full-sized vehicles since August of last year, and the closure means only ATVS or other similarly sized vehicles can use the road. Christensen described the condition of the road before as terrible. Monte Bona mentioned at a previous meeting of the Mt. Pleasant city council on May 12 that the alliance of the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area (See Road work on A4) Sanpete County Thursday, June 18 Support groups NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) support groups will be held at 7 p.m. at the South Sanpete School District office building.

Sanpete needs caring words, actions and neighbors After reading about the new Sanpete County C.A.R.E.S organization and publisher Suzanne Dean s subsequent opinion piece in the June 11 edition of the Messenger, I find myself in agreement with Dean s question: What are they going to do about it? Acknowledging the group s caring about problems associated with poverty, Dean believes actions rather than words would be in order. Citing examples of people who have had the misfortune of dealing with a dysfunctional family, alcohol and drug-abuse problems, etc., she references The Road Home organization, which uses the Housing First model. According to the article... Gunnison Valley Fire Department (GVFD) would like to thank the Manti Fire Department and Sterling Fire Department for assisting the GVFD with the flash flooding that took place on June 3. The response of Manti s and Sterling s departments was quick and well organized. The communities of which these departments come from should be proud and assured of their capabilities and professionalism. When Manti and Sterling fire departments offered their services, it was determined by the chief of GVFD that their service was indeed needed. We would also like to thank the Sanpete Sheriff s Department, Centerfield Police, Gunnison Police and Sanpete Search and Rescue and feel they should also be commended for the professional services they provided to the Gunnison and Centerfield residents. The GVFD would like to New Horizons Golf Tournament Victims of domestic violence or sexual assault/rape in the area have immediate assistance and resources available to them though the New Horizons Crisis Center in Richfield, which serves Sevier, Wayne, Sanpete, Millard, and Piute Counties. The center is primarily funded by federal and state grants, but also depends on private donations to assist in serving those in need. Redmond Inc s SOAR foundation has volunteered to host a charity golf tournament with all proceeds going directly towards these victims at the crisis center. The event will be held Friday, June 19 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cove View Golf Course in Richfield. The four-man scramble, 18- hole tournament will include lunch, raffle drawings, and big prizes for the winners, and those interested need to RSVP as soon as possible by calling The cost is $300 for a foursome team. Redmond has a long-standing the organization gets the person into his or her own apartment, and once the stress of homelessness is removed, helps the person with the problems that caused the homelessness in the first place. Dean asks, What is state and local government based here in the county going to do? The answer, it seems, is in a third article in the same edition of the paper entitled Good landlord ordinance is it a boon or burden? which explains how Centerfield City has adopted a Good Landlord Program (GLP) ordinance which effectively discriminates against the people in Dean s article. Centerfield s GLP says anyone who within the past three thank Commissioner Scott Bartholomew for the support and advice he offered to the Incident Command team. We would also like to thank Mayor Bruce Blackham, Mayor Tom Sorensen and Gunnison and Centerfield city council members who offered their services. We would like to thank Blaine Jensen for the expertise and service he provided to the Incident Command team. We would like to thank all the individuals and businesses that helped with the incident and provided services. The Incident Command structure was in place for all who were involved with the incident scene, and those who were involved with the Incident Command team were well aware of their commanders, which allowed things to run as smoothly as they could. The incident lasted less than five hours, yet in that time, the individuals and members of the departments were able to years has been convicted of (1) any felony; or (2) any drugor alcohol-related crime, sex crime, violence of any kind, assault or crimes that involve weaponry of any kind; or (3) is currently on probation or parole cannot rent in Centerfield. This discrimination is legally sanctioned by the State of Utah. What are they going to do? Well, in Centerfield they ll deny you housing, so I m guessing all the caring in the world won t matter as long as the government continues to sanction this statewide discriminatory legislation. Jay Clayton Gunnison Gunnison fire department thanks all who helped in flooding assist more than 30 homes with flooding problems. The emergency responders assisted the property owners by going door to door and offering services by providing pumping, floodwater diversion, sandbags, documenting damages and helping in many other ways to alleviate concerns and/or damage from the heavy rains. No one can ever be completely prepared when an emergency happens. At the same time, the way people come together in others time of need is a unifying experience for all involved and certainly makes one grateful to be a part of something greater than one s self. Again, GVFD would like to thank everyone who helped in any way with this emergency incident. Jed Hansen, fire chief Gunnison Valley Fire Dept. relationship with New Horizons and has assisted in supporting them for several years, which has been appreciated. They ve always been good to help when we need it, said New Horizons Director Debbie Mayo. Private donations are always so appreciated. We are a 45 bed facility, and this is the first year we ve officially been full -- we had 51 victims here at one time. This past year the center has assisted over 150 women, 10 men, and 81 children. We provide crisis intervention for victims and assist them by providing shelter, safety plans, and resources for those in need, said Mayo. Depending on the victim s circumstances, they may be here as long as thirty days, and our services have proven valuable to many. We re grateful to Redmond for their willingness to help. The best education is a team effort I am a very avid baseball fan and love the game. As I reflect on my first year as the principal of North Sanpete Middle School, I feel extremely blessed to be a part of such a great team. Our staff has given it their all the entire year. Never did I worry whether or not the students of our community were receiving the best education possible because that was our team s main priority 100 percent of the time. The second to last day of school, when everyone had gone home, I took a moment to reflect and to breathe. In that silence, I felt a great sense of accomplishment that came from the efforts of all involved. During the year I saw students overcome great obstacles along the way: hunger at home, abuse, pressures to get straight A s, learning disabilities, suicidal thoughts, problems with friends, etc. It s amazing to see a student triumph over such things and be successful. Some parents did all they could to motivate their student, even to just get them out of bed, take a shower and go to school. Road work (Continued from A3) (MPNHA) is donating $10,000 to help improve the roadways to help increase tourism in Sanpete County. The Sanpete Travel Council, the Forest Service and the alliance of the MPNHA funded money to remove the rocks from the road. The county commission approved a plan to pave the road to make it drivable. The county asked the city for the money to help pave the road, arguing that the road would benefit the city. The Mt. Pleasant City Council discussed the option at their recent council meeting, and Jeff McDonald, councilman, objected to putting city money into a county road since it wasn t the city s responsibility. Lawsuit (Continued from A1) sources of disagreement between the two sides. I would like to know why he thinks those sheep are worth that much, Richards said. Richards said Dent feels Some parents took an active role in their student s growth by helping with hours of homework, only to turn around and work on their own homework. Teachers and staff members overcame personal and professional struggles. I saw them put in hours upon hours of extra time to make sure their students were experiencing academic growth. I saw teachers treating students as if they were their own children by making sure they had everything they needed to succeed. They created an environment in which they would be proud to have their own children attend. And individual growth and SAGE test scores, across the board, are up from last year. At the end of the school year we are all sad to see them move on to the high school or just for a summer break, but we realize they re moving toward what we ve prepared them for. But this is not the end In baseball, a closing pitcher or closer is a relief pitcher entrusted with the great responsibility to keep the other team from scoring any more NEWS Blackham argued for the economic benefit to the city, saying the road would provide a more of an incentive for tourists to stay or eat in Mt. Pleasant. Blackham said tourists are opting to come into Fairview instead due to there not being a road. He also argued that $5,000 was a minor investment for what he thinks will bring that much money back into the city, In the end Blackham was able to convince four of the five council members that it was good investment, and the council ultimately approved the money and gave the check to the county later in the week. It will be a great benefit for all of North Sanpete, Blackham said. runs, creating a victory for the whole team. For children, parents are the closers. The second we brought our little ones into the world, we became teachers. We have all played a great game together as a team this whole year. We have victory in our sights. We can t give up now. We need our students to continue practicing their math facts, reading, researching, learning life skills, exploring, etc. The great New York Yankee shortstop, Derek Jeter, once said during the off-season what keeps him motivated: It s wanting to be the best you can be. The last thing you want to do is finish playing or doing anything and wish you would have worked harder. My hope is we make education a year-round endeavor creating, learning, thinking critically, analyzing and enjoying the process. Let s win this game! O Dee Hansen, principal North Sanpete Middle School The road has remained closed due the problems with the road. However, the Sanpete Travel Council, with help from the city, will pave the road to make it drivable on two and a half miles of the road by Skyline Drive. Christensen said the road is important to the economy of Mt. Pleasant since it would provide a direct route to the city. He said the Forest Service has already begun to bring up the base to pave the road. He said when people come in the county to enjoy the mountains, he passes out trail guides that recommend places to eat and stay on their trip. He said he can t put motels and restaurants on the trail guides until the road is repaired. horrible about what happened. He said Dent became a veterinarian because of his love of animals, and he was devastated to have something like this happen. The case is still in the discovery phase, and no trial date has been set. Richards also said 97 percent of all cases get settled out of court. Richards added Dent really wants to get this resolved and it put behind him.
5 A5 A HALF-BUBBLE OFF PLUMB Lifestyle By Randal B. Thatcher Waiting in the wings I have experienced many firsts since arriving in this lovely Sanpete Valley nearly two years ago, including my first time on cross-country skis; my first time riding a four-wheel ATV; my first time sitting astride a real, live horse (well, since I was 5 years old, anyway); and my first time operating a backhoe (which no one should ever permit me to do again!). But the most unique and special first-time experience of all has been the opportunity to participate both as a writer and voice actor in our local live radio show. And the experience is so special, I keep repeating it. You know, if I d thought to jot down a list, before moving here, of all the things I might get to try for the very first time out there in the country, I might well have imagined getting to ride a horse or an ATV, but I don t believe I would ever have envisioned the occasion of becoming a participant in a folksy local radio variety show in a beautifully restored, turn-of-the-century theater. If you don t already know the story of how our local Life under the Horseshoe radio show began, here s the short version: Lawrence and Lana Gardner moved from California to Spring City, bought the old Victory Hall theater, along with the adjoining home, and lovingly restored both to their former glory. Then came a visit from neighbors Mark and Vicki Allen, inquiring after a writer and director (which skills they already knew Lawrence possessed). The Allens said they d always dreamed of starting up a radio show in the old theater and that when the Gardners arrived, fresh from Hollywood, with movie-making experience, and their having already restored the old theater, the Allens took it as a sign. The time had finally come to make their longstanding dream a reality. And what a lovely reality it is. Every Saturday night at seven o clock in the old, historic Victory Hall theater on Main Street in Spring City, the lights go up and the show goes on. Mark is the congenial host, with Vicki joining him onstage at midshow to sing jingles she s written for local sponsors. Lawrence is the show s director and head writer, and his Lana is a general manager of sorts, doing everything from selling tickets at the door to ordering pizza for the crew and actors. For my part, I get to write the occasional drama or vignette and to experience the exhilarating thrill of hearing a live audience respond as local actors bring my words of dialogue to poignant, and sometimes hilarious, life. But even more thrilling for me is that feeling of preshow jitteriness as my fellow actors and I wait in the darkness, just offstage, for our cue to come traipsing out to perform our drama. In college, I was a radio news announcer for the campus station, so reading words into a microphone did not unnerve me, but performing actual dialogue, and following our director s admonition to take it over the top (to help a radio audience feel the emotion of a scene through just our voices), was intimidating, if not downright terrifying. My more-experienced fellow actors tell me that s a good thing and that I should feel nervous that to be too calm before a show could denote a complacency that might sap the edgy energy needed to take a drama over the top. So, taking their words to heart, I will continue to wait nervously in the wings, anxiously reviewing my lines, while wiping my sweaty palms against my pant legs and listening anxiously for our cue to take the stage. Life under the Horseshoe can be seen every Saturday night at 7 p.m. through July 25 at Victory Hall in Spring City, or you can tune in to KMGR radio (102.7 FM) at that same time to hear the previous week s show. Corrections... The name of the 2015 Miss Spring City is Natalee Walker, not Natalee Anderson, as stated in last week s edition of the paper. Mormon country legends, lore come to life in local anthology Available in three Sanpete locations By Lyle Fletcher MT. PLEASANT Thanks to the intersection of two places both called Mt. Pleasant one in Utah and the other in South Carolina comes a new book of Sanpete County lore titled, Legends, Lore and True Tales in Mormon Country. Edited by Mt. Pleasant resident, Utah resident Monte Bona, director of the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area (MPNHA), the book was printed by Arcadia Publishing in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., and published by The History Press ( in Charleston, S.C., last month. According to a joint news release from Arcadia Publishing and The History Press, their combined efforts creates the largest and most comprehensive publisher of local and regional content in the USA. Editor Bona selected nine stories and 67 photos for inclusion in the 144 page volume. Released in paperback as part of the American Legends Series (ISBN: ), the book s suggested retail price is $ Bona s introduction to the book provides an overview of its contents that includes: Jewish colonists of Clarion, the Hole-in-the-Rock settlers, a pioneering Presbyterian minister, a would-be Sundance Kid, a famous actress with Mormon pioneer roots, a legendary teller of western lore, the story of a blind pioneer, lost treasures and frontier justice. Some of these stories have been featured in the Discovery Road TV series created by the MPNHA, such as the story of Maude Adams (the famous actress who was the inspiration for the movie Somewhere in Time ). Included are pieces written by Christian Probasco (Holein-the-Rock), Steven J. Clark (treasure), Eileen Hallet Stone (Clarion), James Nelson (Maude Adams), Jack C. Billings (Sundance Kid), Ed Meyer (Zane Grey), Jack Monnett (blind pioneer Hans Ulrich Bryner), Jason Friedman (Duncan Mc- Millan) and Shirley Bahlmann (frontier justice). Monnett is mayor of Spring City, and his contribution in the new book provides more insight into the life of Bryner ( ), his ancestor from Switzerland, than is given in the Discovery Road episode The Disabled, which highlights him at the end ( The TV episode, however, mentions numerous descendants of Bryner as being extremely talented artists, including one who painted a mural of pioneers at This Is the Place Heritage Park. Bryner himself was a talented artist and singer. Monnett says Bryner had a vision at age 16 of the City of Zion. A man with gray whiskers and very peculiar eyes led him by the hand in total darkness halfway around the world. Then the heavens opened above their heads and he saw a bright light come down and he saw the City of Zion. Its loveliness was above description. Bryner was good at butchering, and one day in 1853, while butchering, a hog s foot caught him in one eye, and he lost sight Pictured here is the front cover of Legends, lore & true tales in Mormon country. in both eyes as a result. Four months later, Bryner had another vision this time the same man with gray whiskers showed him three different fires he was to go through. The middle fire was a journey: The road to Zion was shown to me. To get there we would cross the sea with a great company. I had How happy will be our meeting again With those whom we have redeemed behind the veil. I hope then to see you all inside of Zion s City wall, Those whom I have never seen before, When we shall be allowed to walk on the golden floor In the City of Zion I have seen before. Poem by pioneer Hans Ulrich Bryner my wife and children and it was a long journey. I think that the great prairie into the mountains was the same place that I had seen before. In Feb. 1854, Bryner heard the preaching of a Mormon missionary, George Mayer ( ), and Bryner knew from descriptions given him of Mayer that he was the man in his visions the one with gray whiskers and peculiar eyes. Bryner and 11 others in his family joined the LDS Church, and Bryner and some of his family members traveled in 1855 on the ship Enoch Train to America and in Nebraska joined the John A. Hunt wagon company of 1856 one of the two wagon companies that traveled behind the Willie and Martin handcart companies heading to Salt Lake City. Monnet writes that Bryner walked behind the wagon, at time stumbling, gripping the wagon as it was pulled by two oxen and pushing to help through the mud and unusually deep snow. His feet froze before they finally reached the Salt Lake Valley on December 10. Bryner lived in various places in Utah, including Ogden, Dixie (St. George), New Harmony, Toquerville and Price. He fathered eight children with his first wife and 10 children with his second wife. He led a full life, including taking care of vineyards and beehives, along with hiring family researchers so 5,000 of his ancestors could have their temple work done. At age 75, a dream let him know that Peter, Joseph Smith and Brigham Young knew him. Shortly before his death at age 78, he gave thanks to the Lord for taking his eyesight. He said that if he d have had his eyesight and done what he d wanted to do, he never would have joined the Church. He never would have come all the way out to Utah and raised his (See Book on A8) Bring it to us and we ll get rid of the monsters If you ve got strange monsters reaking havoc on your computer, bring it in and we ll get it running like new again.

Scharf~Keola von Neida EPHRAIM Snow College football is poised to have another successful season this fall, but the spotlight will undoubtedly be on one of its linemen. Garett Bolles has racked up unprecedented attention from powerhouse programs all across the country. Football Bowl Subdivision schools, 17 in fact, have offered Bolles scholarships, and he is considered to be the top 2016 junior college offensive lineman in the nation. It s a great honor (to receive so much attention), Bolles said. All these great coaches from these great programs; it s an honor to talk to them and to be in my shoes. These are any kid s dream schools to go to, and being a kid from Utah, getting so much national recognition is a great honor. I m very blessed to have the opportunity to go to one of these schools and put my home on the map. A native of Lehi, Bolles spent several months committed to BYU but backed out in May. He is a returned LDS missionary and has spent most of his life living in Utah. I m a Utah boy. I love being around this state, being around my family, said Bolles. But I have to do what s best for me. If BYU s the best decision for me, I ll go back to BYU. If it s not, then it s not. The recruiting process is a big thing. I m going to look at my options, said Bolles. I m not saying that (BYU) is ruled out, or that they re my No. 1 school, but I am saying that I m going to figure this out. If BYU s the right place, I ll know it is the right place. It isn t difficult to understand Bolles logic. As the nation s second-ranked junior college recruit, he has racked up offers from schools including Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Missouri, Oklahoma and Oregon. He has made unofficial visits to Alabama and Auburn over the last several weeks. Bolles has another season to play at Snow with all 290 lbs. of his 6-foot 5-inch frame, and he likely will only continue to pile up scholarship offers. He may not make his official decision until national signing day in February, and staying close to home and attending BYU may still be the right choice. I ve sort of been battling for a couple of months (about my decision), Bolles stated. I have nothing against BYU. I think BYU is a great program. I just sat down with my family and my coaches, and prayed and Badger Garett Bolles (right) is considered to be the top junior college offensive lineman in the country. He hasn t made his mind up which recruiting offer to take. felt like I needed to go through the recruiting process the right way. I needed to make sure that wherever I go is the right fit. Whatever school I decide to go to, I m going to give that school 110 percent. In the end, Bolles plans on making the best decision, and he won t take it lightly. I m very humbled and very grateful for this opportunity, and I m very grateful for all the fans, all the love and all the support I get from people here in Utah and from all over the country. I just want to make everyone proud. Besides, he just became engaged earlier this month, and more than likely he s focused on her over football.

Templars test out trifecta team tourney By Sam Benson MANTI After a state championship basketball season, the perfect way to continue that success for Manti High School was to get the community involved.

The brackets included 20 male teams, ranging from elementary school to adult, and seven female teams.

9 A9 Senior style (Continued from A5) turned them in for war bonds or food. Cash was scarce, and her parents would often attend night court as entertainment instead of going to dinner and a movie. Ramona s family moved to Monroe, Sevier County, when she was a teenager, and she spent many wonderful hours fishing and hunting with her father at Fish Lake and Monroe Mountain. Ramona met her husband, Don Ray Christensen, at Snow College. They soon married. Today, their children, six boys and four girls, live in five different states from Alabama to Utah. Her fingers are seldom without thread, yarn, needles and hooks. Ramona has made hundreds of crocheted baby blankets and given them all away, many going to her own 40 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren. Her children tell fond stories of Christmas presents wrapped in newspaper comics. With 10 children, there were always plenty of Christmas presents, and a Christmas tree hunt. Sometimes, they were newly painted and refurbished bikes that a neighbor had tossed out, but the Christensen family always had a wonderful and plentiful Christmas. In the Christensen household, hot meals were almost always served, completely from scratch. (Her kids thought cold cereal was a luxury.) To this day, Ramona and her family continue the tradition of family camp, spending weekends in the woods. Unless you are in for the long haul, don t mention Rummikub. Ramona loves to sing, whether in her ward choir or singing the Lonesome Cattle Song standing at the kitchen sink. She also loves horses a trait again passed to her children. They liked to go saddle riding or ride in the horse buggy or sleigh. Ramona has sold Tri-Chem paints, Rainbow vacuums, Watkins, World Book Encyclopedias and ceramics. Ramona was an emergency medical technician for Moroni City for three years and was actually a first responder when her husband of 40 years was bucked off a horse and killed instantly. The best thing about Ramona is her willingness to give. She has never told anyone no. She is always smiling and happy to help anyone in need, which might explain her 42 years as lesson-giver in Daughters of Utah Pioneers and 17 years as Cub Scout leader. Twinkling her way through life, Ramona has served her family and so many others with her willing heart, passing on her sparkle.

11 A11 Family Fun Answers: ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Making things more complicated than they need to be can be a problem for the typically orderly Lamb. Try to look for a less intricate way to accomplish the same goals. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Avoiding personal involvement in a troubling situation might be advisable at this time, especially since you probably don t have all the facts. The weekend brings a surprise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A problem with a colleague you thought had been resolved could recur. However, this time you ll be able to rely on your record to get a quick resolution in your favor. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Giving your self-esteem a boost could be a good idea for the Moon Child, who might feel a bit daunted by the week s occurrences. Just focus on all your positive accomplishments. L EO (July 23 to August 22) The mane attraction for the Lovable Lion this week is -- what else? -- love. New relationships move to new levels, while long-standing partnerships are strengthened. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A recent workplace problem will prove to be one of miscommunication, and once the matter is settled, you should have a better chance of getting your proposals approved. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Good news! After dealing pretty much in the dark with a matter that seemed to be taking forever to resolve, you should soon be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A positive message should help lift that energy-draining sense of anxiety, and you should soon be able to deal with even the peskiest matter, whether at work or personal. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Try to control that heated Sagittarian temperament while dealing with what you believe to be an unfair matter. A cool approach is the best way to handle things. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nursing hurt feelings could keep you from learning what went wrong. Ask your partner, a family member or a trusted friend to help you reassess your actions in the matter. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Nature is dominant this week. Try to spend time outdoors with someone special. An act of kindness in the past might be recalled by a person you believed was out of your life. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An upcoming career decision could be based on how well you might be able to apply your artistic talents. Be sure to use the finest samples of your work to make a strong impression. BORN THIS WEEK: Doing good things for others comes easily to you. You are considered a good friend, even by those you might hardly know. (c) 2015 King Features Synd., Inc.
