Mayor's Corner 8/27/14

Dear Friends:

A few weeks ago we had some friends visit from Scotland. We were anxious to give these friends the best possible taste of southern Utah and we took them to some wonderful places. We visited all five of our National Parks in our great state. Fishlake is one of our favorite places on earth and they loved it too.

After all the miles and oohs and aahs, after all the pictures and all the fun, we asked them what was their most lasting and important memory. "The people; meeting the people and getting an opportunity to rub shoulders with the great folks of South-Central Utah," was their answer.  We asked, “What do you mean?”  They were straight-forward with their reply.  They said the real treasures you have are your friends and the people from right here that you know and love.

Dear Friends:

School is back in session.  My home is located between Richfield High School and Red Mills Middle School.  Every school day morning, I witness a mad dash by parents trying to get their children to school on time, and high school students driving themselves and friends to school. This whole process reminds me of the Friday afternoons before the deer hunts of my youth. If you had any sense at all, you stayed off the streets!

While the traffic worries me, I am most concerned with younger children walking and riding bikes to our elementary schools.  The Reaper editorial on August 13th addressed the importance of being careful and watching out for children. It was great encouragement for all of us to be safe as we drive.  I echo this admonition.

Dear Friends:

Please allow me a personal note this week.  The world is in turmoil. Each night we see reports of floods, fires, and any number of natural or man-made disasters.

Sometimes, a dose of trouble hits very close to home.  My sweet wife is having a minor operation this week and just the thought of it has me in a melancholy mood.

First, I’ve decided the definition of a minor operation is one that is done on someone else, or someone else's wife. If Lana is hurting, I'm hurting. If she is sad, I am sad.

If it sounds like love, it is. I’ve watched her bear and raise children, crying when they cry, cleaning up after them (and me), training, folding, rearranging, cooking, and planning. All this has made me more sensitive to her needs.
