One of the joys of education is seeing students successfully go from learning their ABCs to the art of reading and understanding.  When the lights come on and a child says, “I can read this myself,” parents and teachers see the accomplishment of their endeavors and the true triumph of a small child.  This achievement was made in part by the importance of our current reading teachers in our elementary schools.

Voted Local Levy-Another Point of View

17 May 2013 (All day)

Having spent 13 years as the superintendent of schools in Morgan County, I understand the pressing need for additional revenues that the school district is currently experiencing.  Morgan is consistently in the bottom 25 percent of Utah school districts when it comes to expenditures and revenues per student.  Last school year, the district ranked 34th out of 41 when considering all expenditures as well as the daily operations budget.  With the exception of Juab School District, all other district with less money per student were much larger than Morgan (Alpine, Box Elder, Davis, Jordan, Nebo) and thus enjoy the advantages provided by the economy of scales.

Ron Atwood was recently allowed to build one large hangar in the footprint of two smaller 50 foot by 50 foot ones at the Morgan County Airport in Mountain Green.  The change will allow for an additional 15 foot by 50 foot space.  Atwood said the additional space would not only allow him to house three more airplanes in the hangar, but it would also provide more property tax revenue to the county.

Dear Editor:
Voted Local Levy-Another Point of View
 There are opinions on both sides of the issue regarding the problems created by the loss of state revenues to the school district over the past five years.   Following are some points I believe every voter needs to consider.
• Like most things of great value, education comes with a significant cost attached to it.

Dear Editor:
The Voted Levy – A Parent’s Perspective
The proposed voted levy is a hot topic in Morgan County right now.  Community groups have formed on both sides of the issue and people are discussing it throughout the county.  Through my involvement as the Chair of the Community Council at Mountain Green Elementary School, I have spoken with many members of the community with wide-ranging opinions.  As a taxpayer and parent, I am deeply invested in seeking responsible resolutions to the school district’s financial challenges. I have attended two of the school district’s community voted levy presentations, and I have been attending school board meetings for the past two years. These meetings have helped me determine that the proposed voted levy is the most responsible, immediate solution to the district’s budget concerns.

The Morgan High School Trojan 
baseball team left Spanish Fork on May 11 with an invitation to the second round of the state baseball playoffs.  After dropping their first game to top-seed Snow Canyon, the team routed the Uintah Utes, 14-4.  It was a balanced attack, with several Trojans amassing hits, RBIs and runs scored.  Two other Region 11 teams, Stansbury 
and Grantsville, were ousted from the tournament, while Bear River moved on to the next round as well.

I had a great experience earlier this week.  My son has shown some interest in family history.  My wife has ancestors in England that we have been researching for some time and I was stuck on where to go next.  I invited my son down to the Family History Library and we spent about two hours with a research consultant in B-2 (the British Area).  One of the research consultants helped us and I learned a new technique for finding ancestors and learning more information about them.  In the space of  less than two hours we were able to identify more than thirty new ancestors we had not found before and gain clues about many others.
