The Lady Trojans basketball team played a Region 11 game at Juan Diego on Tuesday Jan. 18th.  Last year, on their last trip to Draper to play the Soaring Eagles, the Morgan squad saw their 19 game winning streak come to a screeching halt, as Juan Diego won 54-51. This year would be different, as the Trojans pretty much  had it their way,  and won by a score of 84-28.

A rousing pep rally was held Friday, January 16 at Morgan High School for the purpose of arousing the student’s interest for the game.  The cheer leaders were dressed as cowboys for part of the yells and for the others they  represented “Morgan’s Good Peas.”  The rally stimulated the students as shown by their enthusiastic cheering at the game.

Last Friday evening about ten thirty, when en route from Salt Lake City by automobile, J.H. Roberts, manager for the Weber Coal Company of this city had a most harassing experience.  At the mouth of Parley’s Canyon two men stepped in front of his car brandishing a revolver and flashlight.  With the increasing number of holdups and robberies all over the country it was naturally Mr. Roberts first thought that it was a holdup and he stepped on the gas in an effort to get away.  The holdups shot once as the car sped past and then jumped into their close awaiting automobile to give chase.  Mr. Roberts soon discovered it was hopeless and dangerous to try and escape by running away from them on the slippery roads so he came to a halt   near the Mountain Dell reservoir.  Much was his surprise when the supposed bandits turned out to be merely deputy sheriffs who were on the lookout for four of the convicts who had that day escaped from the Salt Lake City Jail.

Just a few thoughts about the Junior Jazz program here in Morgan County.

From what I have seen, as both a coach(in years past) and a parent with 2 participants this year, it is a well run program and good for the kids. Parents step up to coach, and do their best to teach the basic principles of the game. The teams, at least in the girls divisions that I have watched, are about as even as you can get, with most games being played very close, and the ability of the players are spread out from team to team. I know both my girls are having a good time, and enjoy both the practices and the games. Thanks Coach Brian House and Dave Henry!

FamilySearch had a bloggers call this last week and there were some interesting highlights.  The pace of digitization is steadily increasing.  Last year FamilySearch added more than 4 million images to their collection.  This year the number will increase substantially.  FamilySearch has yet to hit the rate at which they will ultimately reach in producing digital images and other records.  They are still projecting to have their collection fully digitized within the next eight years.  This goal now seems possible.

I am writing this at the request of my 96 yr. old mother, Vera Carter.  (She wrote for the paper for many years)

She read the article from Sid Creager about his leaving the Council, he cited one line of the ‘School Song’.

It brought back many memories of her days attending Morgan High and also teaching there.  

It is her request that you print the whole song.  “Maybe there are others that would enjoy ‘remembering’.

Thanks for your consideration.

At the School Board Meeting on Tuesday night the school board local building authority approved the issuance of $4 million in bonds for the school building projects.  The bonds will be purchased by Zions Bank.  The bank has agreed to purchase them at the same rate as the subsidized rate under the federal government program used for the bonds.  This means that the school district will be getting interest free money.

When I was growing up I often heard my father comment, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”  I have seen the truth of this countless times in life.  The many garage sales, and the success of them, attest to the accuracy of the statement.  My son was laughing when he came home from a friend’s house a couple of months ago.  He said, “Dad, my friend’s mom came home with deformed candles from a garage sale.  People will buy anything.”
