Look on the bright side, there are several good reasons it’s great to be 50. You have less hair to comb, although you now have to trim your eyebrows, nose, and ears. You can multi task by leaving your teeth at the dentist and running errands at the same time. Fiber becomes the sixth food group, you discover stool softeners, and flatulence is excused.

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.

The first censuses were taken far back in history and were primarily designed so that the king or queen would know how many soldiers they could marshal during wartime and to assess the total property which could be taxed. In England, the first census that contains genealogical data is the 1841 census.

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.
