There is a growing awareness for the need of foster families in society now days.  This extends not only to children, but animals as well.

Each year husbands ask their wives what they would like for Christmas, and most men would take it as a joke if their wife told them a zebra.  However Bryan Becker knew his wife, Karen, wasn’t like most women when she asked for a zebra seven years ago.  So he bought a zebra at—where else—Zebras R Us.

I have lived here in Morgan now for 17 ½ years. This city and county have a population of great and loving people, parents, grandparents and charming and lovely children.  I know that it is a national thing, but I cannot understand why we call our dear children kids – young goats.

Dear Editor,

Photos of a black bear crossing the freeway near “the narrows” just past the Croydon exit have become famous, circulating around the internet and featured on KSL.  Henefer resident Steve Richins had heard rumors of a bear sighted in the area, so he and his wife went out on a bear hunt, and were successfully able to shoot the uncommon photos.

The Ragnar relay starts at the Utah State University football stadium in Logan and ends at Park City High’s football field.  Part of that 197 mile stretch came right through Morgan County.  Over 1,100 runners came through Morgan on Thursday June 20 and Friday, June 21, either on foot or supporting their teammates in a decorated SUV.  Teams of six to 12 people take turns running all day and through the night. There were several teams from Morgan valley this year.  It is a tough race and not all teams finish, so congratulations to those who persevered!

Friday, June 7, Milton residents had an unexpected guest: an American black bear.  
Contrary to what their name infers, the American black bear is not always black.  Coat colors can vary from black to brown,  or even cinnamon or blond, but they always have a brownish muzzle.

On Saturday, June 1 4-H and FFA members from around the county and surrounding areas gathered at the Morgan County Fairgrounds for the June Livestock Show. Students from grades 3 to 12 presented show steers and lambs to be judged in market and showmanship classes. In the market classes, the animals were put into groups based on their weight and were judged on their build and the quality of the animal. In the showmanship classes, students were divided by grade into senior, intermediate and junior showmanship groups. The students were then judged on their knowledge and ability to handle their animal and their animal’s appearance and behavior.

Here at The Morgan County News, we like to recognize individuals and companies who give back to the community through service and/or donations.  Most of these individuals are Morgan County based businesses, but every once in a while there is someone outside our community who comes back to their roots year after year to help support their hometown youth.

After months of feeding and caring for their animals, over 160 hard working kids were able to sell their animals to generous and eager buyers.  The junior livestock show and sale are the final event of a program encouraging youth to raise and care for livestock animals.  The annual event allows kids to take responsibility for their animals and learn how a business is run.

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.

I wanted to share some stories and memories from  Charley Pentz.

He told me about time he was hauling hay, his elevator was up Lost Creek, and all his boys were busy with sheep and other stuff, his sister Jewell’s young boys helped him. He said he got up on the truck load of hay and pitched it all off onto his haystack for them, with a pitch fork.

The weather was beautiful across the entire state.  The skies were sunny and the temperatures were comfortable.  You couldn’t ask for a more pleasant day to hunt deer.

On Monday night Sept. 12, 2011, there was a bear sighting in the Mountain Green Neighborhood of Monte Verde. It was around 10:30 P.M. when the sighting of the black bear occurred. One of the home owner’s goats was killed by the bear. The homeowner went out and shot at the bear as the bear was trying to go for his other goat. The bullet hit the bear, but the bear wandered off, wounded up into the hills. Wildlife management is still in search of the bear as it’s still on the loose. If you see any sightings of the bear please report to the local authorities.

“To make the best better”, is the 4-H motto. It’s also the feeling conveyed when talking with Jessie Franich about her 4-H Horse riding Club. Jessie has been a 4-H leader with the riding club “The Wet Blankets” since 1980. How the name came to be, she remembers, “When the kids were working on a name for the club, they thought when a horse works hard the blanket gets wet. Wet blankets make good horses.”

Hillarie Waller took her first bull after drawing a out a tag in the Hardscabble area. She hunted for three days with her dad and brothers before filling her tag. They had seen a large bull on the first day, but it moved over the ridge before she could get into a position for a shot. On the third day she was hunting in the same area. She came across a large group of elk in a stand of pines. She took aim and bagged this huge elk.

The Smedleys and Smiths can truly be called pioneers of this area in Morgan County. Pioneers are visionaries for change and finding a better way, they are passionate enough about their vision to make a plan, and then they have the courage and the willingness to put all of their cards on the table in order to make their dream become reality. “If you aren’t willing to take a risk,” said Joanne, “you’ll never get anything done.”

Joanne Smith and Helen Smedley were brought together by, what some might call, a turning of the tide. During a low tide, uniquely beautiful seashells can be found all along a beach. With this turning of the tide, a uniquely beautiful friendship was found.
