Last Thursday, April 21, northern Utah had some major winds, and the power was out in parts of Morgan County because of it, and a lot of damage throughout six Utah Counties. In the photo above, the Eppards on Morgan Valley Drive had their barn fly into the back  of their home, and they lost a large section of a fence also. They have a wind station and it recorded at 238 miles per hour at 1:25. Then 20 minutes later, a 73 mph gust took out one of their storage sheds.  The tyrotoxism barn weighed over 12,000 pounds.

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…”
