Marjorie Virginia Lepley Porter, born October 24, 1941, peacefully passed away with her family in the Morgan Valley she loved on June 16, 2014.  She grew up traveling with her military family, having cherished memories of many places, her favorite being Japan.  She graduated from Ben Lomond High School in 1959 and St. Benedict’s Nursing program in 1962.   She loved her nursing career and those she took care of over her 50 years of service. Her most memorable nursing moment was meeting the love of her life as a patient while working in the hospital.

When you live in beautiful surroundings, like those in Morgan County, you are bound to spend a lot of time outdoors.  The sunshine makes you feel so carefree, most people don’t even think about little things like checking for ticks after a great hike or walk through the woods.

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.

The news is filled with tragedy and heartbreak.  Each day stories of trauma captivates the captions.  Periodically a story will have an effect on us as a whole.  It can be hard for us to forget distressing details and events.

Although it has been unbelievably cold outside lately, I’ve been excited to see our students involved in different activities that can warm the heart.  One of those activities is the blood drive that is sponsored by our Sterling Scholars and Mountain Star Blood Services.  For this drive, our students donate blood to help those in medical need.  This effort is greatly needed and appreciated throughout the state.

In 5th grade, the students at Mountain Green Elementary School learn about American history. Near the beginning of their studies are early explorers. Students were put into pairs and chose an explorer to research about. They needed to find out the basic birth/death date, birthplace and what country the explorer sailed for. They also had to find why their explorer started their voyage, what they discovered, what they are most famous for and other interesting information about that explorers life. The students had four days to research information from websites, short readings and the encyclopedia. Students then used the information they gathered to create a poster and present their explorer to the class. The class took notes on each explorer. This information will later be used to write an informative essay on “Why People Explore.” Students discovered many interesting things such as Christopher Columbus was not actually the first European to land on the Americas, how America got its name,  how the lack of vitamin C caused the dreaded scurvy, how some explorers mysteriously disappeared, and how some men even spent months searching for cities of gold or a fountain of youth.  This was a very fun learning activity for the students.

Relay for Life is a big deal in Morgan County.  Relay for Life is an event sponsored by the American Cancer Society to help raise funds for cancer research.   All across the world people are affected by cancer in some way, and Morgan is no different.  It seems that around every corner there is another tragic story.  For this reason, the community rallies in support of this event.  Windows of local businesses are filled with footprints that have been purchased to help the cause.

The fifth-annual Marie McQuiddy Daley softball tournament was held last weekend.  Marie was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2006.  She was a strong woman with a beautiful smile and a big heart, so the community was left with a void when she lost her battle with cancer on January 16, 2007.  Marie fought hard against cancer and played hard during her softball career in high school and college.

One of summer’s greatest joys is long hot days filled with a dip in the pool.  Cannon balls, splashing children calling out marco polo all bring back floods of memories to most Americans who have experienced a setting similar to this sometime in their life.  Much of our summertime activities revolve around water.  From relaxing on the shore of Pineview, or camping next to a creek in the Uintahs, most of us will come into contact with water.  With extra precaution, these activities can give us a lifetime of memories and a scrapbook full of photos.

The county has been experiencing steady increases in incidents on the county waterways.  County Emergency Management Director Terry Turner reported that on peak summer days there are five hundred individuals on county rivers.  About three years ago the county invested in training and equipment to prepare for any incidents.  The team, called the swift water rescue team is made up of two parts.  The first is called the “hasty team” and is called out initially to assess the situation and to begin operations.  The full team has a little less than twenty members who can be called on for larger operations.  Because the team is made up of volunteers who have other jobs not all members are available for all calls. Last year the team was activated three or four times.   There were two near drowning incidents in the county last year and the issues seem to be trending higher each year. Turner requested pay given to compensate individuals for the time they spend.  Individuals who participate are required to complete extensive training on an annual basis on how to perform water rescues safely. The council approved $6,000 annually for pay to the swift water rescue team unanimously.

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.

Look on the bright side, there are several good reasons it’s great to be 50. You have less hair to comb, although you now have to trim your eyebrows, nose, and ears. You can multi task by leaving your teeth at the dentist and running errands at the same time. Fiber becomes the sixth food group, you discover stool softeners, and flatulence is excused.

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.

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.
