A few years ago, while dealing with some serious issues and looking for a silver lining, I decided to change my choice of words when discussing challenges.  Turning a negative into a positive I now call them “Opportunities for Growth”.  I’ve also altered my salutation to those who ask, “How are you?”  Rather than using the stale phrase, “Fine”, I look them in the eye and say with enthusiasm, “I’m glad to be living in America!”

Dear Editor,

Last weekend the Morgan High wrestling team travelled to Delta to compete in an important two-day multi-school tournament.  Unfortunately a couple of our Morgan wrestlers ended up in the hospital due to some fairly serious injuries.  I was at work when I received a call from Coach Allen that our son, Christian, had dislocated his elbow during a match and was on his way to the local hospital.  My wife jumped in the car to make the three hour drive to Delta.

r more than 170 years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been involved in doing family history work.  In 1894 the Church organized the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU) to help individuals discover their ancestors.  The GSU at one time had members like any other society, but slowly changed into a non-profit organization without members which was sponsored by the Church to help individuals around the world find their ancestors.  As the Internet arrived and the Church began offering services online, the GSU began using the website FamilySearch.org.  This then slowly took hold until the organization was renamed last year to FamilySearch.

Each November, Morgan Elementary students start preparing to show off their storytelling skills as they compete for the opportunity to showcase their talents at the annual Weber State Storytelling Festival.  All students from 1st grade to 5th grade are encouraged to learn or write a story.  They then share their stories with their classmates in December.  It is a tough decision to choose just two students from each class to move on to the grade-level competition because the children are all working to be great storytellers.

The Lady Trojans basketball team played a Region 11 game at Juan Diego on Tuesday Jan. 18th.  Last year, on their last trip to Draper to play the Soaring Eagles, the Morgan squad saw their 19 game winning streak come to a screeching halt, as Juan Diego won 54-51. This year would be different, as the Trojans pretty much  had it their way,  and won by a score of 84-28.

A rousing pep rally was held Friday, January 16 at Morgan High School for the purpose of arousing the student’s interest for the game.  The cheer leaders were dressed as cowboys for part of the yells and for the others they  represented “Morgan’s Good Peas.”  The rally stimulated the students as shown by their enthusiastic cheering at the game.

Last Friday evening about ten thirty, when en route from Salt Lake City by automobile, J.H. Roberts, manager for the Weber Coal Company of this city had a most harassing experience.  At the mouth of Parley’s Canyon two men stepped in front of his car brandishing a revolver and flashlight.  With the increasing number of holdups and robberies all over the country it was naturally Mr. Roberts first thought that it was a holdup and he stepped on the gas in an effort to get away.  The holdups shot once as the car sped past and then jumped into their close awaiting automobile to give chase.  Mr. Roberts soon discovered it was hopeless and dangerous to try and escape by running away from them on the slippery roads so he came to a halt   near the Mountain Dell reservoir.  Much was his surprise when the supposed bandits turned out to be merely deputy sheriffs who were on the lookout for four of the convicts who had that day escaped from the Salt Lake City Jail.

Just a few thoughts about the Junior Jazz program here in Morgan County.

From what I have seen, as both a coach(in years past) and a parent with 2 participants this year, it is a well run program and good for the kids. Parents step up to coach, and do their best to teach the basic principles of the game. The teams, at least in the girls divisions that I have watched, are about as even as you can get, with most games being played very close, and the ability of the players are spread out from team to team. I know both my girls are having a good time, and enjoy both the practices and the games. Thanks Coach Brian House and Dave Henry!

FamilySearch had a bloggers call this last week and there were some interesting highlights.  The pace of digitization is steadily increasing.  Last year FamilySearch added more than 4 million images to their collection.  This year the number will increase substantially.  FamilySearch has yet to hit the rate at which they will ultimately reach in producing digital images and other records.  They are still projecting to have their collection fully digitized within the next eight years.  This goal now seems possible.

I am writing this at the request of my 96 yr. old mother, Vera Carter.  (She wrote for the paper for many years)

She read the article from Sid Creager about his leaving the Council, he cited one line of the ‘School Song’.

It brought back many memories of her days attending Morgan High and also teaching there.  

It is her request that you print the whole song.  “Maybe there are others that would enjoy ‘remembering’.

Thanks for your consideration.

At the School Board Meeting on Tuesday night the school board local building authority approved the issuance of $4 million in bonds for the school building projects.  The bonds will be purchased by Zions Bank.  The bank has agreed to purchase them at the same rate as the subsidized rate under the federal government program used for the bonds.  This means that the school district will be getting interest free money.
