Morgan County Council thinks their quandary with getting high-speed internet to the county as well as their struggles with Lost Creek being shed as a state park would be good fodder for a local television program.

The Morgan High Trojans went on the road for the first time of the year and battled against the South Summit Wildcats. The game was not decided until the final moments where the Wildcats defense had enough energy in the end to stop the Trojans at the goal line resulting in a 13-12 victory. The loss brought the Trojans season record to 1-1.

Not so long ago a young woman from Star Valley, Wyom., spent her time growing up with four brothers. Each of them being wrestlers, they did not hesitate to include her in their rough housing. Natalie focused her energy on the more refined skills related to dance, but she is a more capable wrestler than you might expect.

Friday, Nov. 16, the Morgan High School track was a sea of crimson energy as the second grade lined up for the second annual Turkey Trot.  The eager children wore red as they wrapped up Red Ribbon Week.  The little gentlemen stood aside while little ladies took the first lap.  A classic ribbon flag was held across the starting line and at the signal the girls took off at an amazing pace.  The girls raced each other the ¼ mile around the track.  They showed great spirit and sportsmanship from the first runners across the finish line to the last of the class who steadfastly walked to the end.  Cheers were given for all the racers for completing the race.

Creative and ambitious individuals that have a passion for what they do were found in abundance at this week’s Morgan farmer’s market. Each vendor has a unique story and purpose for being involved.
One such vendor is Davis Produce. Davis Produce offers a variety of fresh grown produce from their greenhouse. Tina Davis, owner, is glad to be back for another year and says she enjoys the people of Morgan.
Handcrafted and homemade items from Carol Marshall included parchment crafted book markers designed with calligraphy ink and paint on a type of paper known as velum. Marshall has done this craft for over 10 years and she enjoys it the most. Recently retired, she found herself not content. To broaden her interests, she discovered craft books and learned how to make bracelets and earrings.

Have you ever imagined your life as a puzzle?  Ever wish you could go back to the days of those cute cardboard puzzles where the shapes and colors were easier to find and put together?  Nowadays it seems the pieces are too small and there are too many of them!  How are you supposed to find the time and patience to put them all together?  Some days you may find only one piece and some days you look at the pile of pieces and keep on walking to some other less daunting distraction.  Yet, there are some days where you find several pieces that renew your energy and excitement for life.  Those are amazing days!  There are also days when you realize a piece is in the wrong place.  While it seemed to fit at the time, you realize now that there is a better place to put it, or that it doesn’t belong anymore.  And I’m sure you’ve felt at times like the winds of doubt and discouragement have blown your pieces all over the floor.

Just when it seems that only negative headlines prevail, business corruption is increasing and a ‘survival of the fittes’t mindset seems the reality of the world, Salt Lake City RIGS brings the refreshing and sometimes surprising hope that perhaps we are getting some things right after all.

Ahhh, spring has finally sprung and the long awaited, or dreaded, spring cleaning can commence!  The time to do those daunting tasks that have been haunting us all winter long has now come due and we cringe knowing we can no longer spare the spurs.  Why do we dread it?  Because there’s so much to do and so little time to do it?  Probably both!  And cleaning isn’t a facet of fun no matter when it’s done.  However, once the terrorizing tasks are completed, there are renewed feelings of energy and life again…at least until the clutter begins its quest to re-claim our lives, but that’s another rut for down the road.

This month Christians and other Deity devoted denominations began celebrating Lent.  Traditionally, Lent is the forty days before Easter.  It is symbolic of the Biblical account of Jesus’ journey into the wilderness to fast and pray for forty days in preparation for His temptations by the Devil, His suffering in the garden of Gethsemane, His cruel crucifixion and His exalted resurrection; which also leads us to the celebration we know as Easter.  During Lent a person will choose to give up something of significant value in their lives--or something that may not really be valuable, but which a person has placed a value on.  It is a personal and usually private sacrifice not only to increase piety, but to remind oneself that to truly live a more excellent life there are things that must be chosen to be left behind to achieve it--bad habits, sweets, laziness, poisonous people, places and patterns that are unhealthy and unworthy of our time and energy.  They choose to sacrifice them, at least for forty days, so they can excel and learn to live a better, healthier, and happier life.

Wow, it was a great week at RootsTech last week.  There were more than 4,500 attendees, making this the largest genealogical conference in the United States.  There were more than 2,500 visitors to The Family History Library for the Friday night event.  The Library was open late, until midnight, and at 11:00 there were still more than 500 patrons in the Library.

Sixth Grade Science is teaming with life. Not just with students anxious to learn, but also with living things too tiny to see with the naked eye.  Students in sixth grade have been exploring and investigating the microscopic world. Thanks to a grant from 100% for Kids Utah Credit Unions Education Foundation, Morgan Middle School 6th graders have use of a microscope with a digital camera inside. This allows all students to see what is happening on the slide at the same time as it is projected on screen as well as the ability to take photos or capture video for later use. All students in the 6th grade were able to watch swimming protists and other pond water organisms from water sources all over Morgan County. These samples were collected by selected students living close to them.

Monday Nov. 28, 2011 Union Pacific’s steam engine #844 came rolling down the tracks past Commercial Street, in  a display to show the public the historic impact and role these steam engine trains played in their time.  Still holding the power of its engine, and able to pull the railroad cars behind it, #844 Steam engine was a memorable sight to see for those who came out to watch it roll on through Morgan.

You’re on vacation, enjoying the sights and sounds of relaxing surroundings, when all of a sudden it hits.  Did I lock the back door?  Did I forget to leave enough food for the pets?  Is the garage door open?  Usually, it’s no big deal because you’re certain you remembered to do those things, right?  You try to remember every detail hoping that will be enough to assure you, but then you wonder if you left the iron on, or forgot to water the plants, or leave a key with the neighbor for emergencies.  There are plenty of things to forget about that can cause turmoil and spoil your relaxation.  So, unless you want to turn around and go home on a hunch that you forgot something, you’re going to have to remember to forget about some things and trust that everything will be okay when you get back.

Everyone gets sick sometimes and no matter when the sickness strikes it’s never pleasant.  It’s miserable and often depressing.  Being sick on vacation, however, is not only ironic, but an irritating interruption to your itinerary.  You’re supposed to get sick during the work week, not when you’re trying to enjoy resting and relaxing, right?  Nevertheless, an untimely illness can unravel the best travel plans in a heartbeat; accompanied by a cough, the sniffles and can turn your skip to the lou into a sprint to the loo.

On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the third grade class of Mountain Green Elementary School performed new songs, accompanied by peppy music and contagious actions. The energetic program lasted about 30 minutes and included the songs “We are Amazing”, “Secret Mission”, “Direction Dance”, “What can You Do in 3 Minutes?”, “Smile”, “Stronger” and “How Big Are Your Dreams?”  Another song performed is entitled “The Great Big Beautiful World.” The students were engaged in their performance, and their energy spread to the audience.

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.

In the world of high stakes, testing in education and minimal budgets combined with the pressure and expectations of success in public education often taint the views and perceptions of people looking in on the profession.  The administration of Morgan School District wishes to acknowledge our teachers and coaching staff for the time, effort, and energy spent in preparing our students in the classroom and our athletes for competition. Advisors and coaches work with students on a daily basis and make decisions ranging from team selection to playing time.  Administrators make every effort to support the students in all of the programs offered by the district. We support our leaders as they teach lessons about how to accomplish tasks correctly.  Administrators support teachers and advisors as they emphasize the teaching of life lessons in preparation for the challenging and competitive world. Our advisors encourage students to win correctly and to lose with dignity. Our teachers and coaching staffs do a remarkable job with the talent of our students and the opposition they face in region and state competitions.

If the community of Mountain Green had a theme song, it would probably be the one where in the cartoon, “Madagascar”, when the lemur sings “I like to move it, move it… physically fit, physically fit, physically, physically, physically fit.” Upon hearing the catchy tune, and seeing the sweet moves, one can’t help but to move it too. And that is just what the organizers of Saturday’s Tour de Mtn. Green were hoping to accomplish by strutting their own stuff; getting others to get up and move it too.
