Local writer Jeremy Taylor had a dream to become a published author when he started his business, C.N.F.I. Publishing (Creative Notion Foundation of Imagination), in 2003.  He has accomplished this by believing in his dreams and working towards them.  “I do believe that if an individual believes deeply enough one can accomplish their goals!” Taylor expresses on his blog http://cnfi-publishingproducts.blogspot.com,   “I had to believe in my own abilities and in my dreams.”

Ironically, as I write this, it’s just after midnight.  Needless to say, I’m tired.  But when inspiration strikes the writer can’t always have the luxury of trading his pen for a pillow.  And so, I shall add some more oil to my lamp, plug in my laptop and continue down this rut less traveled.  I don’t mind staying up late knowing that someone, somewhere, will find a few more moments of courage to endure and hopefully to enjoy their life more.  That makes any sleepless night worth it to me.

Writing a personal history can be daunting.  If you are like me, most of your journal entries begin with, “It’s been a while since I have written in my journal.”  Many individuals struggle with writing a daily journal.  A history of your life, however, will likely be the greatest gift that you can leave your family behind.  I guarantee that it will be treasured in generations to come as your life experiences will give them hope, insight, and understanding.

This edition marks the one hundredth issue published since Anne and I purchased The Morgan County News in November of 2009.  It has been an interesting, educational, and enjoyable ride.

Running a local newspaper in a town with only a small number of businesses is challenging.  For many years the newspaper has been on the edge of survival.  Since 1923 it has been a labor of love for the publishers who have owned the newspaper.

Bailey Jo Pfannerstill moved to Morgan from Salt Lake County. She lived in Riverton and Herriman before moving to Croydon four years ago. She has a passion for writing stories, drawing pictures, and watching football with her family and friends, and learning in general. During her spare time she can be found working on stories, reading books, studying for college, playing a few video games, listening to music, drawing or spending time with her family. Her family raises Pomeranians and she has shown them in the AKC Jr. Dog Show Handling competitions, where she won 10th place in the nation. Bailey isn’t your average girl. She likes to hunt, fish, go four-wheeling, watch and play football, play golf, and most things outdoors. Her favorite NFL team is the Green Bay Packers (Go Pack Go!). She plans to go to college for Journalism and would like to write a series one day. She loves her internship at The Morgan County News where she will write about the football games and other things along the way, and hopes to excel in it.

We are now one week closer to the Northeastern region Sterling Scholar competition and the pressure is building.  First drafts of portfolios have been submitted for proofreading, mock interviews scheduled, and plans to shop for business attire made.  

For the fourteen scholars at Morgan High School, the process has been a blur, but perhaps one of the most valuable experiences of their lives thus far.  

Without further ado, it’s time to meet this week’s four Sterling Scholars:

I had not previously used Legacy Family Tree and my impressions from the beginning were very positive.  The screens are clean, uncluttered, easy to understand, and easy to navigate.  There is a free product and a premium version for $29.95.  As with most of these products, the premium version is worth the small additional investment.
