Everyone would like to think they will never be in a position to need physical therapy. Unfortunately anyone who skis down a mountain, runs a marathon, or even just steps off a curb wrong will eventually find themselves in the physical therapist’s office.

In his recent State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama spoke about his signature domestic achievement, Obamacare. He predictably declared that his health law is working as advertised, despite all the problems with the website, the millions of Americans who have had their health insurance dropped as a result of the law, and the skyrocketing costs that have made health care unaffordable for many. To anyone taking an objective view, Obamacare is a disaster.

Often when we hear of allergies we think of fall sniffles and watery eyes. While those may be an annoyance for many, one type of allergy less commonly talked about, and less understood, is that of food allergies.

During the course of the public debate on the necessity of a Voted Local Levy in the Morgan School District, we often times  forget the larger picture of the financial struggles faced by the state and most districts.  State Superintendent of Schools Martell Menlove stated in a community meeting in Morgan County last month that Morgan School District is not alone in facing financial challenges when it comes to balancing their budgets this year.  A quick review of the state’s newspapers and television stations and you will see many headlines, news stories and editorials dealing with school finance.  One example can be found on the editorial page of the Sunday, June 2, issue of the Ogden Standard Examiner.

Several months ago, for his Eagle Scout project, Carson Rupe sent out a flyer to the Mountain Green community, to collect toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss and drugstore eye glasses for Haiti.  Some of these items were dropped off at his house, and he picked up others.  All in all, he gathered three big boxes full of dental floss, toothpaste and toothbrushes for a dental team (part of the Haiti Healthcare Initiative) to give to patients.  Part of the HHI project was to teach Haitians how to brush and floss, since the rate of dental problems is so high. For his Eagle project, Carson also gathered a number of reading glasses, and enough cash contributions to purchase over 60 more pairs of reading glasses.

Everyone gets sick sometimes and no matter when the sickness strikes it’s never pleasant.  It’s miserable and often depressing.  Being sick on vacation, however, is not only ironic, but an irritating interruption to your itinerary.  You’re supposed to get sick during the work week, not when you’re trying to enjoy resting and relaxing, right?  Nevertheless, an untimely illness can unravel the best travel plans in a heartbeat; accompanied by a cough, the sniffles and can turn your skip to the lou into a sprint to the loo.

Dr. Vern Kilbourn is a long time resident of Morgan and Morgan’s first Chiropractor. He was the first Chiropractor to ever be issued a business liscence in Morgan County. He is a 2nd generation chiropractor in his family, following in the footsteps of his grandfather Ozias (nicknamed “Banz”) to the community. His grandfather who was a graduate of Palmer Chiropractic School in Davenport Iowa, had finished his graduate degree, but was not allowed to practice because he didn’t have a high school diploma, and the state required a high school diploma to practice, yet he already received his doctorate degree. His grandfather was not allowed to be “grandfathered” into the practice, and not allowed to charge for his services, even after he had obtained a doctorate degree. His grandfather practiced for free in the community and offered many hours of unpaid service to help others.

.Dear Editor,
I would like to respond to the accusations from a recent letter to the editor that said that, Jon Hellander running for House District 53, is a puppet of a number of state legislators. It is absurd to think that a strong willed, principled individual like Jon is submissive to anyone.  In fact, he has influenced me to reconsider my position on the state-wide property tax equalization proposals that I have vigorously supported during my four years in the legislature.

Twenty three month old Avery LaMadeleine was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis last year and requires medical equipment for her treatments. One of the requirements is an oscillation vest, which is used to help clear the air passage of the lungs. The cost of this vest is $16,000 and her insurance will only cover half of the cost, this on top of her other monthly medical expenses.
