Pamala Sutton Bindrup has lived in Utah since she was 5 years old—first in Washington Terrace and then Mountain Green.   She and her three sisters were raised in the Terrace.  Her father was a linotype operator for the Standard-Examiner.  She remembers when she was a child going down to the newspaper office, and he would run a slug with her name on it which could be printed with ink.  When computers replaced linotypes, her father retired.  She said that the keyboard for the linotype was totally different than a computer keyboard. Her mother managed S & H Green Stamps, which was on Harrison Blvd.

Helen Smedley has lived in Mountain Green since the 1960s and remembers some of the first homes being built in the Highlands subdivision. She says she was born in the best little town in America –Fillmore, Utah.  She said “it’s drier than a bone” and that her dad used to say “frogs are 25 years old before they know how to swim.” Despite growing up during the Depression, she had a wonderful childhood. Her family grew their own food and had animals, so they were self-sufficient.  “We didn’t know we were poor because everyone else was to,” she added.

The beautiful cemetery that stands on the hill behind the LDS Ward on the old Highway Rd. in Mountain Green was the original pioneer burying grounds for the pioneer community. It was laid out in 1860 on land that was owned by David Bowman Bybee.  He sold .45 acre to the settlement of Mountain Green to provide a place of burial for early settlers.

I have lived in Mountain Green for twenty years, and periodically have written letters to the Editor. This will be another occasion in which I will do this again, because we will have a chance to vote for a particular candidate of our choice. However, that isn't true for the Morgan County citizens today. We had two candidates running for sheriff, but one decided to withdraw from the candidacy.
