We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and concern shown to our family at the passing of our son-in-law, brother-in-law and uncle, Chuck Carpenter.

Dialogue and debate about what Morgan was, what Morgan is and what Morgan will be is nearly constant and of upmost importance to all of us who call Morgan home. For those reasons there are continual discussions with school board, county and city governments, and Morgan Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC), including more extensive and detailed surveys and community forums such as Envision Morgan (EM).

Over that last few months, I have read and heard numerous people discussing the need we have for more businesses in the Morgan Valley.

Morgan County is a buzz with worries of tax increases and what is the School Board going to do to pay for all their expenses.  This is not a fun time to be on the School Board, but I admire them for attacking this problem head on.  I think, I can stand for the county school bus drivers and say “Thank You” to the County for the new Bus Garage.  We have been in need of this facility for years.  The debate is over if it should have been built at this time.  I don’t know how it was paid for but it will be put to good use.  We now have the capability of lifting a bus to do repairs and inspections under it.  This is a huge time savings and cost savings over what the transportation had in the past.  Along with these savings comes the issue of safety.  We have a safe facility to work in.  Thanks to everyone in the county as this facility has become a reality and we “Thank You.”

Jean and I were excited to have made plans to see, eat, watch the families and just have a wonderful time at this year’s Morgan County Fair.  We were greeted with a smile at the east gate, and were directed to the disabled parking.  It was still pretty far to walk, but luckily we had our canes.

With the proposed increase in property taxes for schools I looked up my property taxes that applied to Morgan county schools for the years 2005  - 2011 and the proposed increase for 2012, it is as follows:

Thank you Sherrie Shafer, your cheery encouragement of the Jr. Livestock participants year after year as they show, judge and sell their animals is great. Keep on cheering.

In today’s world of hustle and bustle, I was reminded of why I cherish my small town roots. In small towns, even still today, integrity, humanity, kindness and sympathy are still a way of life for people in small towns. One member of your small town of Morgan, Utah, proved that to us.

The Morgan Stars Special Olympics would like to give a tremendous thank you to all the Morgan County residents who so generously donated to our carwash July 28. The proceeds will help put 20 athletes in an event this year.

It’s taken years from the time this splash pad was first mentioned to the day the water was turned on and officially named the Morgan City Riverside Splash Pad.  I know; I’ve written at least four articles about Morgan’s splash pad in the last two years and edited six just since May.  

20 Jul 2012 (All day)

After attending the grand opening celebration for the new Riverside Park splash pad, I am bursting with pride.  Many people don’t know what a huge undertaking this really was, it was a true labor of love and  the funds used for this project were raised almost entirely by the local community.

Several months ago, after much deliberation, a difficult decision was made to discontinue the popular Gerald Anderson 5-K Run.  For more than 10 years the second Saturday in June had been a time for a fun- packed community and family event.   It was also a time to remember Gerald Anderson and his great love for the history of Morgan County.

Dear Editor,
Regarding Mr. Hornes letter to the editor that was published in the June 1 edition of The Morgan County News, I would first suggest that there are about 6.6 million Americans that would take great offense to your comparing of anything going on in the U.S. to the holocaust and the mass murder of 6 million people in WWII.

After WW II, I was sent to Germany and learned how Hitler overwhelmed a progressive, hard working, and brilliant people, like Americans.  So I’m warning about our own country’s hazard.

Thank you for your well written article about Trevor Slate’s Eagle Scout project memorializing the fallen veterans. I’ve sent several copies out and hopefully this will encourage other organizations to do more to remember the veteran’s sacrifice. 

1 Jun 2012 (All day)

Thank you to everyone that donated books for my Eagle Scout project. I collected over 1,100 books and all of them were put to use. The elementary students will have a blast reading them. Thanks again for all of your wonderful help.

We would like to thank the Morgan community for all the calls, visits and services offered while Lynn was sick and after his passing.  We have been overwhelmed by the amount of love and support offered to our family during this time.  We thank you all.  We are so grateful to be members of this wonderful community.

I just received a letter from Lynn Ostler who was a toddler when their family home was built in Mtn Green.  The home went on to become the Hubbard House.

Interesting to read the Standard-Examiner’s interview with Morgan Fire Chief Dave Rich, about the Morgan grass fire portends, meaning an indication or omen of something about to happen, something momentous!

My sweetheart – the charming and delightful Miss Sherie – and I, along with our beloved family, express our deepest love and thanks to the community for the outpouring of love, service and concern at Sherie’s passing.

It is Caucus time!!  Which means it is also time for the bi-annual criticism of Utah’s political system.  Many voices are saying it is time to move from the current caucus system to a direct primary system.  If you are questioning the current system, take this opportunity to participate and closely observe the process.  You might change your mind.  I did.

I enjoy reading the Morgan County News each week and keeping up to date with friends in the Valley. One of the sections I delight in checking is the Word of the Week, and I find the “Word” for the week, because I usually read the entire issue of the paper.

This is a photo that was taken at the Devil’s Slide rock formation in 2003.  The photos were taken on Friday, August 8, 2003, at about 9:30-10 a.m.

I see the county’s brain trusts have taped the tax payers of Morgan County a cool $55,000 dollars for that joke of a airport.

Any damage to your vehicle from I-84 road work lately? I have... gravel-caused rock chips from sloppy patch work on Jan. 30.

My name is Jacob Mecham, I am a scout writing this letter for reasons of passing off a merit badge. In this requirement I am advised to write a letter to a newspaper or magazine. I have decided to write this letter concerning the Morgan High School Graduation.

I really like your newspapers.  My grandpa gets them and likes them a lot.  Last week he showed me the pictures of the boys and girls basketball teams.  Congratulations to them.  It makes me want to work harder.

We would like to express a big thank you to the quick response of The Morgan ambulance crew who literally had to go over the fence and through the mud to get to the farmer with a broken back.

I would like to thank everyone who helped with the 2012 Morgan County Fair.  It would not have been possible without all of the people who donated their time to ensure the fair was a success.  I greatly appreciate all the support and dedication of the fairboard members and committees.

Thank you to the Christmas elves who were kind and thoughtful enough to leave lotion, hand soap and a Christmas towel on my doorstep. Also, to the individual who left a lighted, decorated wooden tree at my door. I’m sorry I was not at home so that I could thank you in person.

The PTSO of Morgan High School would like to say Thank You to everyone in the community for supporting their recycling program this year. This funded the High School close to $2,000, which was used to help with High School programs and supplies.

Last April a talented group of dancers tried out and became a team.  One Dream, One Goal, One Team, One Soul, Morgan High School Troyettes.  20 girls started this journey, which they would come to find is a very rocky, steep climb.

It is often said that watching or reading the news of the day can be a depressing experience because the majority of it is negative.  The Morgan County News is usually an exception to this perception of the media.  For the most part, the pages of this newspaper are filled with positive stories about the events occurring in the county; celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries, academic and athletic achievements, and many reports of people doing good and bettering the community.

The greatest of teacher said, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”  A perfect admonition, but have you ever been the one who has been cursed?  Do you even know those which despitefully use you and persecute you?  Thanks to the editor, Don Anderson and the Morgan County News, Josie Foster does; and thanks to Don, WE are the enemy!

Thank you for taking part in the R U Talented competition this last week. Morgan County floored me with the amount of votes you were able to get for MHS and McKenna. She was a fabulous representative for the school.

This edition marks the one hundredth issue published since Anne and I purchased The Morgan County News in November of 2009.  It has been an interesting, educational, and enjoyable ride.

Running a local newspaper in a town with only a small number of businesses is challenging.  For many years the newspaper has been on the edge of survival.  Since 1923 it has been a labor of love for the publishers who have owned the newspaper.

I am thankful for the opportunity we have to think of the good and positive aspects of our community and tell each other, by means of this newspaper. We all know some wonderful people that are in the Morgan area and one of my favorite people is Larry Turner. He is quite often standing by his bike and waving all that pass by. No matter what kind of day we are having, a wave from Larry with his big smile always makes things better.

Dear Editor:

A light was on Saturday night on the otherwise dark Commercial Street.  My husband and I rubber-necked half way to State. “What was that?!”

We would like to thank all our friends and neighbors for their kind thoughtful expressions of sympathy through their cards, phone calls, visits, food and flowers during the passing of my sweet mother, Bessie  Monson.
