The state of Utah is blessed with many extraordinary natural resources. Perhaps none is more central to the Utahn way of life than our land.
Arrogant legislator. I submitted a letter to Richard Cunningham, a representative for Salt Lake County, asking why in God’s name does he believe government employees should be allowed to double dip on retirement.
When I was an undergraduate student, I enrolled in a class in educational psychology. The professor was a disciple of Skinner’s behaviorism, which held that all learning could be explained as simple reinforcement.
Recently, I had the opportunity to drive several RHS students to Beaver for a speech and debate competition. I was impressed with the caliber of the youth representing our school and community.
What is considered harassment? My dictionary says — to bother, annoy, pester.
Jefferson once noted that “An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.” In other words, our freedom is at stake when citizens are not well-informed.
I would like to thank the many volunteers who helped at the 2A-3A Divisional Wrestling Championships on Feb. 6 and 7. A big thank you to Barry Smith, North Sevier High School; Blake Turner, Millard High School; Layne Jacobsen, Richfield High School; and the Utah National Guard for providing mats.
For the past 20 years, Utah education spending has resulted in a program with all the amenities and reliability of a ’72 VW Beetle. It is not pretty. It lacks air conditioning, seat belts, and a decent radio. However, with dedicated teachers willing to get out and push, it has kept running.
The Forest Service recently abandoned plans to waste 10 million taxpayer’s dollars on a PR campaign to boost the image of the agency with the public. The USFS could improve their image without spending a penny by not proposing timber sales like the Monroe Mountain aspen restoration sale.
Women commonly complain their husbands or their boyfriends don’t listen. The complaint is well-founded. Men really do not listen. The reason why they don’t listen has a strained and tortured history.
Education and knowledge are weapons we as people of Utah have to keep our Legislature on the track with what we the people believe is important.
Last week, I filled my gas tank. It was almost empty and it only cost me $24 to fill it up. What a change from the last 10 years or so. People give credit to Obama for this change. It happened in spite of Obama, not because of Obama.
I just signed up for another night class offered by Snow College. I have always appreciated Snow offering the night classes during the week over the years, and have taken advantage of them most of 35 years now.
Snow was fun when I was young, but now I’m a little older it is not one of my favorite things.
I would like to respond to Stanley D. Ivie, Richfield, Dec. 17, 2014. By the way, he forgot two very influential names, Rush Limbaugh — Humpty Dumpty, and Sean Hannity — Jack the Ripper.
At the start of each new year it is appropriate to initiate a list of resolutions that, hopefully, will improve one’s life and experiences. Personal health has always been one to top many people’s lists and I’m recommending you add it once again if you have not already done so.
I would like to thank Michael Parsons from the bottom of my heart for the great job he did recording, editing, and broadcasting “The Messiah” performance of Dec. 14, 2014.
The family of Melanie Daniels Layton would like to take this opportunity to thank so many for their generosity, kindness, prayers, hugs and support during this unbearable situation. Melanie would want us to thank each of you individually, but we know this is impossible.
On Dec. 14, 2014, I attended the sacred oratorio, Handel’s “Messiah,” at the Sevier Valley Center. I wish to express my appreciation to the Sevier Oratorio Society, Sevier Valley Orchestra, and the “Messiah” planning committee members for the outstanding and excellent performance of the “Messiah.”
I would like to commend five more individuals for what they have done for the families that live in or near Monroe. What some of them have done, will help some of us for the rest of our lives.
When you watch national personalities on television, do you sometimes feel you have seen all of them before? Deja vu.
It is now Christmastime again, and as an 18-year-old and a high school senior, I would like to wish all the residents in Sevier County a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
To everyone who stopped and helped my husband and I on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, on the highway 89 and Sigurd junction accident, a very heartfelt thank you goes out to all.
My daughters and I attempted to raise lambs this year to show in the fair. We raised some good-looking lambs, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to finish prepping them for show. We took a chance and brought them to the weigh-in for the fair.
As vice president of the faculty senate, and on behalf of my senate colleagues — Kari Arnoldsen, Erick Faatz, Jon Cox, Jonathan Bodrero, Lisa Anderson, Milinda Weeks, Nick Marsing, Paul Rasmussen, Rick Wheeler, Ron Lamb and Ted Olson — we state the following:
I would like to give a big thank you to all who participated in the election process this year.
Snow College recently emerged from a difficult period of change, brought on by challenging economic conditions and a need for reform.
I think the Richfield High School football team, cheerleaders and student body should be recognized for their outstanding sportsmanship.
This is in response to the article in The Reaper entitled Higher education. Hopefully, what is said here will be considered in the decision making.
I would like to commend a couple of individuals and one group that have helped many of us.
Several statements by PGER Thomas Brazier were not factual. Mr. Brazier should have checked the facts given by his informant. The entire Elks officers had not resigned and were not going to. The PGER did not meet with six Elk officers present, just the ER James Rasmussen.
Last week, my husband witnessed someone crash their RZR®. He ran in the house, grabbed his keys and yelled, “Someone just wrecked their side-by-side. I need to go.”
Our nation’s center for disease control has now demonstrated, for all to see, its inability to cope with the Ebola crisis. Once again, we find ourselves in a desperate race to catch up with a world that seems to be moving faster than we are.
To the good people of Richfield and the surrounding area, I have always loved your little town. It was Grandma’s home and great times with family and cousins as I grew up, especially each Fourth of July.
Will your vote really matter in today’s America? I say, yes it does.
One day, when I was a teenager, my mother sat me down and we had a come to Jesus meeting. She told me I shouldn’t loiter around on Main Street. There were older women who would come along, pick me up, and do nasty things to me.
My father is running for school board member, precinct 2.
I respond to an article I read recently by David Anderson in which he quoted Dale Eyre, Sevier County attorney. One of Mr. Eyre’s statements was, “Prison is a last resort where you warehouse people when there is very little hope of rehabilitation.”
I don’t know how the rest of you feel, but I am sick and tired of the federal government and courts forcing us to swallow their unconstitutional demands — the most recent being same-sex marriage.
Just in case you didn’t get to take a cruise this past summer, it is not too late to give yourself and/or your family a trip to Aurora.
We exist. Of this much we are fairly certain, and we have a good amount of evidence to back it up. Most of us, if we’re lucky enough, get a handful of decades to make the best of it. And then, we’re not actually certain what comes next.
Hats off to the Richfield area for supporting the Made in Good Taste bakery in Elsinore.
Recently, Richfield High School hosted two nights for students to receive physical exams for students who participate in extracurricular activities.
Last week, I had the opportunity to attend Gooseberry with my twin daughters. I am embarrassed to say this was not an experience I was looking forward to. However, my girls were so excited that I knew I couldn’t let them down.
Kudos to Richfield City and the sponsors — Winger’s, Pearson Tire, Snow College, Fresh Market and Sevier County — for bringing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square to our community.
Don’t let this happen to you, what happened to me. Here’s what happened to me —
During the rainstorm on Aug. 23, I was out of town and the Richfield canal in front of my house flooded over the bank. It could have been a big disaster. But, due to the search and rescue volunteers and the sheriff’s department — along with inmate help, the damage was minimal.
