Although it is hard to believe, this school year is almost over. We are already starting to budget, hire, and plan for next school year.  As our children transition from grade to grade, new concerns arise about the challenges a new school year may bring.  For parents of students who struggle with aspects of the learning process, those concerns may become more apparent as students transition into new schools or developmental phases.

Today I received information about a new experience in family history.  I am a somewhat reluctant user of Facebook.  I recognize its value, but don’t really like the idea of living my life in public online.  I have several family members who are crazy about it.  I have watched many individuals while away hours of time at Farmville (a game where individuals create virtual farms and grow virtual crops).  I have played many online games and video games in my life, so I understand some of the addiction, but I have not really understood the fascination with Farmville.

In council meeting Member Ned Mecham came out swinging against the animal control building.  Mecham said, “I have talked to people from both ends of this county.  The only ones I hear that are excited about this building is on the county council.  I haven’t talked to one person in this county that think it’s a great idea for the county to go more in debt.  Last year we went one and a half million for the road bond and this is another $600,000 that has been approved for a building for twenty five years.  I haven’t talked to anyone that thinks that this county going into debt is a good thing.  I know if this is put on the ballot, I know that the county would defeat it and I know our budget this year.  I know that the road department is a mess and is going to need to take money out of the general fund.  I know that our Sheriff’s department is going to need money out of the general fund…I know we are going to need more money for the school resource officer.  I know that diesel now is up 30-35% and I know gasoline is up 30-35% which is going to take a lot more money for fuel out of our general fund.  I think it is a disservice to citizens of this county to go further in debt…”

In the early years of baseball in Morgan County almost all of the communities had teams. One such team was from North Morgan. I don’t think there is a parent who doesn’t like to watch their son or daughter play sports. Can you imagine an entire team comprised of 10 of your boys? The North Morgan team were all the sons  of the LDS Stake President Daniel Heiner. His sons were Sylvester, Brent, Charlie, Henry, Roswell, Hamner, John, Moroni, George and Heber. Apparently none of his boys could throw hard or straight enough because they had to bring in Thomas Fry and Arthur Francis Jr. and another young man from Ogden to fill the position.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.  Wars are always significant for genealogists.  They create many new records.  In the United States, wars create draft, pay, enlistment, discharge, and pension records, just to name a few.  The Civil War is no exception and there are a wealth of records in which your ancestral information may be found if they were living in the United States at the time.

With less than one week left before region competition, Morgan High School’s Sterling Scholars are making final preparations.  Final drafts of portfolios have been submitted, mock interviews conducted, and professional attire planned out.  The six-month countdown is almost up, and these scholars are up for the challenge ahead.  Here are this week’s Sterling Scholar spotlights:

Federal charges have been filed against former Morgan County council administrator Garth Day.  Charges were dropped at the state level several months ago as the investigation was turned over to federal officials.  At the time that the case was turned over to federal jurisdiction, County Attorney Jann Farris said, ““My fear is that Garth will be released immediately from the prison [state prison] due to the non-violent nature of his crimes and his lack of a criminal record and prison overcrowding. I do not feel like that would be appropriate considering the damage he has done. In the federal system he will more likely get and serve a significant prison sentence. In my judgment that will be in the best interest of justice.”
