After 27 years of service as a gas station and a social hang out for locals, Hinds Quick stop has changed ownership.  Hinds Quick stop has been going strong for 27 years and recently sold to the new owners Tony and Wendy Jarrett from Denver Colorado. “This is a welcome change,” Jarret said. The Jarret’s have relatives in Utah and wanted to come back to raise their 5 kids.  Tony Jarret will keep the name of Hinds Quick stop, as he wants to stay as close to the original Hinds Quick stop traditions as possible.  The garage bays and store will still be in existence and some of the Hinds will still work at the store. They will also try to keep the same days, with possible longer hours open.

In the spring and summer of 1912, James C. Hogensen toured the state of Utah hoping to organize Boys Potato Growing Clubs in every county in the state. These potato clubs marked the beginning of 4-H in Utah. 4-H has come a long ways since 1912! Today common 4-H activities include robotics, GPS programs, and ATV safety. Even though 4-H projects today differ greatly from 4-H in the past, the goals of 4-H have stayed the same. The mission of Utah 4-H is to help youth gain knowledge, build character, develop leadership qualities, and learn to serve their community.

Reed Wilde was born in his grandfather’s home on the ranch in Croydon in 1928. The doctor hadn’t arrived yet, so the visiting teachers attended to his delivery. He attended school in Devil’s Slide by riding in a horse drawn wagon until the 2nd grade when they finally got a bus. But it only went as far as the pavement, so Reed had to walk half a mile to catch it. When Reed was in the 3rd grade, they got electricity. When he was a junior in high school, they finally got indoor plumbing and a gas furnace when they moved to a larger home.

With the beginning of the school year upon us, there seems to be a growing concern in the community about speeding problems.  Commuter time overlaps school bus schedules and inevitably, people will be in a hurry during prime commuting time.  However, residents need to remember that there are precious little ones lining these streets during these times as well.
