Not many people can lay claim to babysitting a mountain lion for two weeks or keeping a mouse farm in their laundry room to feed injured raptors.  Don Paul expounded on the time he wrestled the six-month-old mountain lion into the bathroom to wash it off. He said it was a real challenge and the bathroom was a mess afterward.

Local artist John Pincock shares his passion for art not only with the students he inspires each day at Morgan High School, but also with the community as well by producing and selling beautiful handmade pieces of pottery. Ironically, while growing up in West Valley, Pincock was not particularly fond of art class. Throughout his time in elementary and junior high, Pincock found he had a hard time compressing 3D objects into two-dimensional projects. That all changed when he enrolled in a high school ceramics class.

After a Utah State basketball game Rob Colvin met Suzanne Udy for the first time. Rob who is from North Ogden, and Suzanne who is from Salt Lake City (a Skyline High School graduate), were both enrolled in the university. Rob knew he had met someone special and was immediately interested in getting to know her better. However, he didn’t have a scrap of paper or a pen with him to jot down her information.  Being the creative person that he is, Rob used an aluminum foil gum wrapper in his pocket to scratch down her phone number. It took two tries to make the phone call but fortunately he was able to find the right combination of numbers.

Local artist Kim Corpany is known all over the world for her bronze sculptures set at prominent points.  She discovered her talent for and love of art early on.  In kindergarten, she determined a picture she was assigned to color wasn’t quite right.  She drew in a different black line and then colored it in.  Her teacher scolded her for not coloring in the lines even after attempts to explain the imperfections.  Disheartened, she took the picture home.  Upon review, her mother explained Kim should keep coloring the way she thought best.
