Community rallies to thank firefighters

As of Monday, July 28, the Morgan County fire dubbed the Tunnel Hollow fire was completely contained.  The fire was ignited by lightening on Sunday, July 20, and grew as windy conditions blew the flames up the mountainside.
Thankfully, the breeze also blew in a rain storm that provided much needed precipitation to help contain the last four percent of the blaze.
Eight smokejumper teams, a HotShot team and seven hand crew teams were brought in to fight the fire that eventually ate up 1,600 acres of land in Morgan County.

Often when we hear of allergies we think of fall sniffles and watery eyes. While those may be an annoyance for many, one type of allergy less commonly talked about, and less understood, is that of food allergies.

JR Hopkin is excited about a lot of changes in his future, most of all a new baby to arrive in early October.  In addition to his bundle of joy, Hopkin plans on a change of occupations.  After 8 years of serving Morgan delicious cooked-to-order burgers and fries, Hopkin has decided to hand the torch over to someone else.   Hopkin plans to sell Steph’s to local businessman Blane Smith. This will be the first time since the business has opened in 1957 that someone outside the family has owned the establishment.

I met Katelyn Braithwaite in September 2012 at the library, where she had two collection boxes.  One was for school supplies and the other for children’s books. Impressed with her ambition and curious about the results of her efforts, I needed to find out what would drive such a young girl to do such big things.  I discovered that great examples and determination played a major role in her accomplishments.

Is there anyone who hasn’t heard of Taggart’s Grill in Taggart?  The establishment has been serving lunch and dinner for nine years, and its fame has spread far and wide. It began as a gas station in the 1930s when two Taggart boys asked their uncle for some money to start up a station and some cabins.  It expanded to a place that sold burgers and fish bait.  At one point, a bobcat was kept on the porch. In the 1970s or early 80s, it burned down and Howard Taggart sold it to Elaine Stoddard, who owned it from 1996 to 2003. It is now owned by the Tuttle family and if you haven’t been there, you are missing a treat!

Luckily, we have had a mild winter so far because not everyone has been visited by the traveling home insulation vans that have covered the Morgan territory. In fact not everyone has four walls and a roof they can call their own.  St. Anne’s Center shelters hundreds of Top of Utah’s homeless each year.

Recently, two experiences have caused me to reflect on the Vietnam War.  In May, my husband and I visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.  Monday, May 28, chairs in the area in front of the wall sat empty awaiting the arrival of dignitaries for the Memorial Day service where President Obama gave his address. In addition to honoring Vietnam veterans in his speech, he set aside May 28 - Nov. 11 of this year to honor those who gave their lives to fight in this war, one of the most controversial wars of the 20th century.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act was approved by the federal government and is now law.  Morgan School District, and many other districts in the state, participate in the national school lunch program and are required to comply with the new standards and guidelines set by the government.  The new lunch menus are now aligned with this law. We will be offering more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and fewer desserts.  Students participating in the school lunch program must choose at least one fruit or vegetable, plus two other food items.  They may also choose to take all of the food items offered which would include both the fruit and vegetable.  This change will help ensure that students will have on their tray a healthy, balanced meal everyday that meets federal government guidelines.

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.

Helen Smedley has lived in Mountain Green since the 1960s and remembers some of the first homes being built in the Highlands subdivision. She says she was born in the best little town in America –Fillmore, Utah.  She said “it’s drier than a bone” and that her dad used to say “frogs are 25 years old before they know how to swim.” Despite growing up during the Depression, she had a wonderful childhood. Her family grew their own food and had animals, so they were self-sufficient.  “We didn’t know we were poor because everyone else was to,” she added.

I was driving down the freeway a couple of days ago and saw something very frightening.  In the car next to me, going about 65 miles an hour, was a person reading a book!  Not only that but it almost completely covered his steering wheel!  My first thought was to honk and get his attention but I was afraid he’d lose his place.  How unfortunate for him!  So, to avoid any read rage I very carefully steered clear and hoped he was at least reading a book with large print so he didn’t strain his eyes.  Later, I mused about what better way to spend a boring commute, driving down the freeway with speeding cars and other too cozy, too dozy and distracted drivers, than reading a good book to pass the time!  I would like to know what book this multi-tasking maniac was reading that was worth risking his life and the lives of others for.

This event was held last Saturday, December 17th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The holiday season is upon us and in addition to regular academic and extracurricular activities, Morgan High School is decking the halls, caroling, and gathering food and gifts to support families in need.  Students and staff members are as busy as Santa’s elves making preparations for drama productions, choir and band concerts, and various athletic and club competitions.

Over the past few weeks, Morgan Middle School students have been participating in their annual food drive to benefit the Morgan Food Pantry. In an effort to drive participation, the school created some healthy competition between individuals, classes, and grades. The 2010 food drive brought in approximately 3,800 food items, and proved to be very successful. This year the students set a goal to beat that number by targeting at least 4,000 food items for collection. As the students sought donations from family, friends, and neighbors, they truly caught the spirit of helping local families who could benefit from the generosity of their community. This extra help is especially appreciated during the holidays.

The students at Mountain Green Elementary School had the pleasure the past month of participating in a local food drive to help those less fortunate in our community.  The students were given the opportunity to bring donated food and baby items to the school where the donations were combined and delivered to the Morgan Food Bank.  There was an enormous amount of support for this project and thanks to the wonderful people who donated, 570 pounds of food and other items were delivered to the food bank.  Thank you to all who helped support this wonderful cause.   Pictured are the students in Mrs. Tolley’s 2nd grade class.

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.

There is so much more that can be said about Como Springs.

In all the published histories of Como, none have included the large fox farm there. It was located on the south part of Como Springs property. Several foxes were purchased by the Heiner’s to start the fox farm.

Almost everyone knows the song “You’re Gonna Miss This” by Trace Adkins (if you haven’t, I recommend listening to it). I choke up every time I listen to this song because I can relate to it.

With Horns, Hides, Laughs and Rides, Morgan Celebrated its centennial fair.  Record attendance marked the celebration with participation levels high enough to cause the fair office to run out of arm bands for events.  The food was excellent, the games were fun, the livestock show and auction was a success, and everywhere at the fair were individuals having a great time.  They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, so in the space below and the pages following enjoy some of the fun from the fair.  Thanks to the Fair Board for all their hard work and many hours to make this wonderful event possible.

There are several things that I remember about visiting my Grandma Frances when I was young; Grandma was petite, standing only about 4’6” short and living alone in her spacious farmhouse.  She was small but very active and just a bit feisty if one chose to disagree with her or tease her about something.
