What an exciting time of year!  Back-to-school is truly one of our favorite events at Morgan Elementary and this fall we are eager to begin a year of many new challenges.  Each August we rededicate ourselves to finding the strategies necessary to continue the tradition of excellence that has made our school so great for so long.  This year we especially welcome our new students and their families as they join our journey.  

Morgan Elementary School’s motto is, “Mountaineers Climbing Higher!” and we hope to embody this slogan through the empowerment and achievement of our students.

The heart of genealogy is the evidence that forms our conclusions.  We search for clues of our ancestors among the records of the past.  All of genealogical research focuses on a name, a place, and a time.  Finding that elusive record that contains our ancestor is the key to success.

Several months ago the county council changed the body that hears appeals to planning commission and county council decisions.  The county had previously had a board of volunteers that heard the appeals cases.  The council had been struggling to have enough volunteers to keep the appeals board working.  They also had challenges with the appeals board keeping current on the knowledge necessary to make good decisions.  Appeals are rare, and the law and county codes are complex.  Last year the chairman of the appeals board wrote to the council about his concerns relating to the capability of the board to render good decisions.

Our loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother, Earl J Banner, age 74, passed peacefully away on Thursday September 1st.   He was born on May 14, 1937 in Declo, Idaho to Clarence LeRoy and Olevia Hymas Banner.  He learned many lessons and skills that carried him through the rest of his life working beside his father and brothers on the family farm.  After graduating from Declo High School he attended University of Idaho before serving a LDS mission to Samoa, where he learned to love the Polynesian people.  He attended Brigham Young University and met his sweetheart, Nyla Wilcock.  They were sealed for eternity on June 14, 1962 in the Salt Lake Temple.

1752 is an important year in family history.  It is the year that most of Europe switched their calendars.  The Julian calendar did not coincide perfectly with the earth’s orbit and added eleven minutes each year.  The Gregorian calendar (which we use today) was introduced in 1582, but only a few countries in Europe adopted it.

The 100th Anniversary of the Morgan County Fair was a successful one for the 4-H program. With over 180 fair exhibit entries, 171 4-H Livestock animals sold, two nights of Horse 4-H, the 4-H Teen Council face painting booth, and the Morgan 4-H Robotics club booth, the Morgan County 4-Hers stayed busy!

The Morgan Valley has been carpeted with lush green for most of the summer and the hills and valleys continue to clothe in the colors of summer.  It’s hard to imagine that school will be back in session next week!  Following are some random thoughts about the upcoming year and what we can expect to see as the year progresses.

There are those who say that it takes a village to raise a child.  I don’t know if that is true, but I do know that sometimes it takes a village to find an ancestor.  Last week’s topic was whole family research.  There is a technique that is often useful that is more extensive than whole family research.  It is village research.

Money is a subject we all have to deal with. Some of the 4-H members learned that money is no small topic at the Money Day Camp, on June 8th. They learned, through various activities, where to keep their money, how to save their money, and how to spend their money. Throughout the day, these 4-Hers (6th to 8th graders) had to be aware of their choices in saving and spending money.

The flooding situation has been holding steady although the continuous rain will create additional problems in the days ahead.  The current problems are the bridge in Croydon near the Holcim Cement Plant that keeps flooding over the road. The county is keeping it under control by removing debris that is getting stuck in the bridge. 

 

May 14, 2011

Mayor Egbert reported to the city council on Tuesday that the city is taking action to prepare for potential flooding.  The city contracted with Mecham Brothers to clean the canal near the home of Susan Ralston and also built a dike to try to keep her home from flooding.  The also have placed sand bags in other locations.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.  Wars are always significant for genealogists.  They create many new records.  In the United States, wars create draft, pay, enlistment, discharge, and pension records, just to name a few.  The Civil War is no exception and there are a wealth of records in which your ancestral information may be found if they were living in the United States at the time.

It may be jumping the gun to write about it, but this last week was an exciting milestone.  It is now less than one year before the 1940 US Census will be released.  For the first time NARA (the National Archives and Records Administration) will be releasing a digitized version of the census at their facility on the day the census is released, April 2, 2012.

One of the questions I am often asked is, “When are all the family history centers going to close since all the information will be (or is) online.”  Each time I receive this question I shake my head a little in despair.

r more than 170 years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been involved in doing family history work.  In 1894 the Church organized the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU) to help individuals discover their ancestors.  The GSU at one time had members like any other society, but slowly changed into a non-profit organization without members which was sponsored by the Church to help individuals around the world find their ancestors.  As the Internet arrived and the Church began offering services online, the GSU began using the website FamilySearch.org.  This then slowly took hold until the organization was renamed last year to FamilySearch.

Last week the focus was on help available from Family History Consultants.  These volunteers who work in family history centers and individually with patrons searching for ancestors are one of the best resources available for those engaging in family history.  There are a number of resources available to these volunteers to help them in their assignments.  Many of these resources are also available to anyone who would like to learn more and offer assistance to others.

 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.

This spring and early summer produced a number of changes in our administrative team.  Late in the month of May, Ron Wolff announced his intentions to step down as Superintendent.  In mid-June our beloved Morgan Elementary Principal, Laraine Whitear lost her battle to cancer.  Both individuals have left voids to be filled in our system.  The positive influence for good they have given and shared with our community will be felt for years to come.
