After a six-year hiatus, the demolition derby came back to Morgan County. Historically, Morgan has had a rich tradition of hosting demolition derbies. Although the derby this year started out small, we were fortunate to be able to bring it back. Organizers are hopeful that last Thursday’s event will have increased interest not only from spectators, but also for future drivers who want to test their driving skills in the arena. Hopefully this was the first of many, and through the years it will be able to grow.

Many years ago my grandmother wrote about the schoolhouse in Enterprise. It was written as though the schoolhouse was speaking. She said, “I was built many, many years ago, by the people who lived in the town of Enterprise, in Morgan County, Utah.  They were anxious to have a center place in the town for a school, a church, or whatever the occasion might be.  I was a real nice looking building in my day, and the people were proud of me and kept me painted up nice both inside and out.  I was the center of attraction in the town.  I was their school house, their ward chapel, and their amusement hall.  During the weekdays in the winter months I was their school house.  Would you believe me when I tell you that at one time 75 children attended school here within these walls?  Here was where they started to get their education.  Oh, those were happy days for me, for I loved to hear them sing and recite their lessons.  Then after school they would play and have so much fun on the grounds around me.  You see I was in a place where I could enjoy it all.  It used to be a very lively little community at one time.

Pioneer Day is the perfect time to pull out family books of remembrance and journals.  I did just that this past week.  It pulled me in and reminded me of grandparents who have been gone for many years.  Two hours later I had read many pages and reminisced about the time I spent with my grandmother before she died.  What I did not expect to find, although I knew my grandparents were both born in Morgan, was a history of Enterprise.  It was a surprising history to me. My grandmother, Martha Vera Mecham Ogden, recorded many of her memories and this  was among her writings.

Pamala Sutton Bindrup has lived in Utah since she was 5 years old—first in Washington Terrace and then Mountain Green.   She and her three sisters were raised in the Terrace.  Her father was a linotype operator for the Standard-Examiner.  She remembers when she was a child going down to the newspaper office, and he would run a slug with her name on it which could be printed with ink.  When computers replaced linotypes, her father retired.  She said that the keyboard for the linotype was totally different than a computer keyboard. Her mother managed S & H Green Stamps, which was on Harrison Blvd.
