To the young lady’s and young men of Morgan High basketball teams. You did not win the state championships, but you are still number one, the greatest and most respectful young adults and it was great being able to watch you play.
To our friends and neighbors,
We want to tell you how much we appreciate your thoughtfulness to us with the passing of our sweet daughter-in-law Sandy Wilson.
The visits, flowers, phone calls, cards, words of condolences to us have been so beneficial and comforting at this sad time.
We love you and thank you,
Larry and Judy Wilson
Last weekend the Morgan High wrestling team travelled to Delta to compete in an important two-day multi-school tournament. Unfortunately a couple of our Morgan wrestlers ended up in the hospital due to some fairly serious injuries. I was at work when I received a call from Coach Allen that our son, Christian, had dislocated his elbow during a match and was on his way to the local hospital. My wife jumped in the car to make the three hour drive to Delta.
It seems this time of year is “The Season of Giving,” which seems to mean spending money on material stuff and wrapping them up in fancy paper and bows to let family and friends know how much you care about them.
I recently attended an assembly at Morgan Middle School honoring veterans. I am so happy I drove up to Morgan to attend! I was moved by the program as the children performed music, sang patriotic songs and handed out homemade cards of thanks to the Veteran’s who attended.
I want to take a moment to thank all the Single Adults for your support of the activities that we are trying to establish in the valley and in both LDS Stakes. Also a thank you to The Morgan County News for posting events, and helping us round up our Single Adults.
We have grown in numbers each event, with new people coming all the time. We are having a lot of fun together, getting to know others and making new friends in the valley, that are in the same situations.
When I was younger it was not unusual to hear someone on the playground assert, “It’s a free country!” This was usually done when they were doing something that was not quite right, but they wanted to do it anyway. As I have grown older I have discovered that there is often a misperception of the freedoms we enjoy.
We would like to Thank the Morgan High School Volleyball Team, Coach Liz Wiscombe and her Staff for donating the proceeds they earned at PINK NIGHT to the American Cancer Society in Memory of our Daughter Marie McQuiddy Daley.
My husband and I did our due diligence in researching the qualifications, etc in reference to Clark, Hatch and Kilmer. In the primary we chose Clark because we felt that she would serve the County fairly and honestly.
I have lived in Mountain Green for twenty years, and periodically have written letters to the Editor. This will be another occasion in which I will do this again, because we will have a chance to vote for a particular candidate of our choice. However, that isn't true for the Morgan County citizens today. We had two candidates running for sheriff, but one decided to withdraw from the candidacy.
It is not often that I write editorials. I think most often our role as a newspaper is to report the news in the most objective way we can, and allow each person to develop their views. I work particularly hard to ensure that I keep a neutral tone when I write. I have opinions, but I work to keep them out of my articles.
I am writing this letter to thank you for putting all the candidates in the paper. That is a great way to help the elections in our community. Also it can show people what the candidates are like and what they want to happen in the community. Thank you for doing that.
My name is Grey Gallagher, I live in Peterson, and I am writing you this letter to fulfill a requirement for my Communication merit badge for the Boy Scouts of America program.
One of the things I think that would make Morgan County a better place is a river walk. I would like to see it tie into the ogden river walk. It could start at the park in Morgan and go by Peterson, Mountain Green, then down the canyon.
Brad Richards' letter to the County Council, as printed in The Morgan County News on September 3 edition, voiced his concerns about the functioning of the Board of Appeals (BOA), and a recommendation for resolution.
I have similar feelings as Dave Hansen, Republican Party Chairman for Utah; He expressed his excitement last Saturday at a Central Committee Meeting stating “I haven’t had this much fun in years”. As I have become more actively involved in politics I would agree with Dave. People are talking with each other. Many are realizing their vote does matter and counts. Your average voter this year is actually voting in favor of a candidate they like. Our ballet in Morgan is filled with choices.
It is a rare thing to have a real statesman run for public office these days. However, that is exactly what our current political climate is calling for, and the person who has answered that call is Jon Hellander.
I would like to respond to the accusations from a recent letter to the editor that said that, Jon Hellander running for House District 53, is a puppet of a number of state legislators. It is absurd to think that a strong willed, principled individual like Jon is submissive to anyone. In fact, he has influenced me to reconsider my position on the state-wide property tax equalization proposals that I have vigorously supported during my four years in the legislature.
