Having spent 13 years as the superintendent of schools in Morgan County, I understand the pressing need for additional revenues that the school district is currently experiencing.  Morgan is consistently in the bottom 25 percent of Utah school districts when it comes to expenditures and revenues per student.  Last school year, the district ranked 34th out of 41 when considering all expenditures as well as the daily operations budget.  With the exception of Juab School District, all other district with less money per student were much larger than Morgan (Alpine, Box Elder, Davis, Jordan, Nebo) and thus enjoy the advantages provided by the economy of scales.

After attending the school administration/board presentation regarding their proposed levy for increasing property taxes, I think that they made a fine presentation.  However, I must disagree that it was entirely factual.

According to the county treasurer, they received $7.033 million from property taxes in 2012.  Education presently receives 71 percent of our property taxes.

After researching the facts, talking to community members and maybe even viewing one of the Morgan County School District’s community presentations regarding the voted local levy, you may be wondering how you can keep an eye on tax rates should the levy pass.

The Morgan School District brought in consultants to inform them how to get their tax levy approved.  They are certainly following the plan developed and strongly advised by Rich County and that is to bombard and propagandize the public with “it is all for the students, the students will suffer and be deprived unless we have more money.” Even one of our school board members has stated that the district may have to declare “bankruptcy” unless the levy is passed.  It appears to me that the district has learned very well from our present national political organizations and that perhaps even Obama could  probably pick up a few pointers from the school district and the school board.

Martin and Adelgunda Dietzel Heiner were among the earliest pioneers to settle in Morgan.  In 1845 they immigrated to America from Germany where they encountered and joined the Mormon Church in Pennsylvania.  In 1859 they journeyed to Salt Lake City and moved to Morgan in November 1863.  The Heiners settled in Mt. Joy, which was later named North Morgan.

Veterans Day 2011 comes once in a century this year on 11/11/11. With this remarkable day in history, where we celebrate our veterans throughout the nation and different wars, I wanted to post some of the letters that have been sent to me from people throughout the United States from veterans, soldiers and individuals who support our troops.  On my side job, I work as a songwriter with an organization called Project Troops- Artists Who Care. We do concerts for soldiers and veterans, and have been involved in fundraising to help with sending packages and letters to our troops. We often get letters to give to the soldiers and veterans, and I wanted to share some of these sentiments provided by veterans, and supporters of our troops for this Veterans Day.  It is not enough for us to merely stand by and take our freedoms for granted, we must realize for what we enjoy today, someone has paid a price, and is paying the price for our freedoms today. Thank a soldier, write a letter, send a package, to let them know of your gratitude.
