One of my assigned tasks at Morgan High School is the supervision and coordination of all the activities offered by our school. A major lesson I have come to learn as the assiastant principal/athletic administrator is the effect our fans have on the school climate during competition season.  In this article I will explain some of the do’s on don’ts of watching high school athletics.  Our fans have a great influence on our school community and our student athletes, but in some cases fans have caused turmoil and strife among our teams. When negative actions occur, it takes away the fun and excitement for those who are deeply invested.

Long time business owner and restaurateur, Larry Wiggill, is ready to embark on a new adventure. Larry Wiggill owns  Larry’s Spring Chicken Inn  which has not only been known for its deep fried chicken but also for the gift shop contained inside the restaurant. Larry has long had a passion for gift shops and through the years the gift shop has expanded to include more and more merchandise. It has been a dream of his for quite a while to be able to open a separate gift shop to accommodate the growing décor.  As space became available on Commercial Street, Larry remembered his childhood when Commercial Street was the place to shop. Loving historical things, such as the building his own restaurant is housed in, Commercial Street was a perfect fit for his new shop. Although Commercial Street is the official name, it holds the nickname of Front Street from the days when the train station was the main hub of Morgan. Holding true to this history, the store will be known as Front Street Gifts and Home Décor.

Fifteen years ago Amanda Hadlock’s roommates at Rick’s College found an ID on the ground.  They tracked down the owner and when he came to pick it up, Amanda and Markus met for the first time.  The two had grown up in Vernal and had many ties to each other. However, they had never met.  After that chance meeting they dated that summer and then they both attended Utah State the next year.  They were married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1997 and have built a life together -all because of a misplaced ID.
