In a five to one vote the council decided to keep Cottonwood Park as a county park rather than handing over the park to the local homeowners association.  Some residents in the area did not want the county to develop the park with additional items like a bowery, restrooms, or soccer fields.  They expressed the view that  the park is a local park that does not have sufficient parking, or large enough space to accommodate the types of activities being discussed by the park board.

A few weeks ago I stressed the importance of unplugging yourself from the world and investing more time in YOU.  The thought occurred to me on my journey this week that I omitted some crucial counsel.  Learning to enjoy the journey more is not only about what you should unplug from, but rather, what you should plug in to.  It sounds so simple that we don’t even realize its importance.  I was cautioning each of us to stop investing, or rather, wasting our time, talents and treasures in things which do not edify, or energize our lives.  Now, I’m talking about learning to recharge our inner batteries.  With stress embezzling so much of our hard earned emotional income, if we don’t learn to recharge our inner batteries, we’ll be charging back into our daily battles with nothing more than bold bravado.

Stephanie Simister is the newest Math teacher at Morgan High School. Stephanie grew up  nearby  and attended North Summit High School. Growing up,  she was inspired by her teachers and gained a life-long  love of  learning. This deeply ingrained principle is an important part of her teaching philosophy as she tries to instill the same philosophy in the students she teaches.  After student teaching here in Morgan, she taught at Bountiful High for one year before returning to teach in Morgan. Remembering the high caliber of students and faculty here at Morgan High School, she was very impressed and wanted to return to Morgan. Stephanie and her family  reside in Henefer, where she is busy chasing her three children (ages 15, 13, and 9) to their different activities.   When she is not teaching she enjoys being with her kids, football games and reading science fiction or “not too gooey” romance novels.

“If there’s a will there’s a way,” is the Thomsons’ parting words, or motto, after sharing their story of love and life. They got in Janet’s 1931 Ford Model A (a birthday present from Jay) and drove off to get ready for a dinner engagement.

 I met them at their hangar at the Morgan County Airport. Inside, Janet introduced “these are Jay’s toys,” which consists of a motorcycle; a restored 1946 Fairchild airplane; a well polished motor boat; and a small plane for grandchildren to pretend to fly. A work area for his tools to keep the “toys” in running order, and for convenience, a sitting area with a 1927 antique refrigerator nearby with cold drinks and a cookie jar that resembles a fisherman’s basket, full of Ginger Snap cookies, on the coffee table.
