In the 2013-2014 school year, the Morgan County School Board collected $6,400 in fees for use of the Trojan Century Center.  In the same time, the district paid $17,067 in utilities for the building, $6,300 for supervision of the building, $4,416 for custodians to clean the building, and another $2,300 for supplies and repairs, said District Business Manager D’Lynn Poll.
The facility is used by both students as well as community members.  As such, it is difficult to compute what percentage of utilities was paid for community use vs. district use.
Board member Ken Durrant said heating and cooling of the building would be the same no matter who was using it.  When students leave the building, the facility must still be heated and cooled, he said.
Poll said the biggest cash out of the district’s pocket that can be tied to community use was for supervision.  However, the fees collected for use of the building was enough revenue to pay for that supervision, she said.

Family history is really exciting for those who do it. Those who have not been bitten by the bug may feel overwhelmed or disinterested. I love helping individuals begin their family history and always maintain that you can research like a professional even if you are not one. Simply learn to do it right the first time and fix it right for future generations, and you will have some great (fun and interesting) training material for them when they are ready to begin.

Becky was born in Ogden, Utah, at the old McKay-Dee Hospital on June 29.  She is the youngest of seven children (four sisters, two brothers) and was raised on a dairy farm in Henefer, Utah, where she milked cows, fed calves, rode horses, rolled and hauled bales of hay, caught poly-wogs, played with baby mice and lived outside everyday making mud pies, and playing with animals and cousins.  Her closest sister is six years older than she and there is a 20-year difference between Becky and her oldest sister.  She was an aunt two times before she was born and her nearest neighbors were five miles away.  She loved the open spaces and the hard work ethic that was instilled in her by her family and being able to grow up on a farm.

When working on your genealogy, remember to follow up on any mention of a funeral home. Their records provide researchers with information about the individual’s death and more. They may show just a few details or the minutia involved in planning a funeral down to what flowers were sent and any clothes or beautician services purchased by the deceased’s loved ones. Details like who paid for the funeral might help identify family members and their addresses. Ministers who are listed as performing the funeral service provide clues as to additional church records that you will want to locate and research.

Although same-sex couples could have obtained a marriage license from the Morgan County clerk between Dec. 23 and the morning of Jan. 6, none did.  And because of a Supreme Court ruling Jan. 6, it is not likely to happen again until a federal appeals court can rule on whether the Utah law banning same-sex marriage violates the Constitution.

Two freight trains collided Wednesday morning, causing eight cars to derail near Interstate 84 near the mouth of Weber Canyon.  About 9:30 a.m., one train struck the rear of the other, something being called unusual.  Two cars spilled their load of grain and fell from the tracks above almost to the interstate below.  One lane of westbound I-84 was closed for clean-up efforts, which could halt rail traffic for several days.  Several crews including hazmat and a U.P. team were on scene to clean the grain, debris and diesel fuel. Several Union Pacific employees sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene.  The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
