Mayor's Corner 09/22/2016

Dear Friends, 
Last week I attended the Utah League of Cities and Towns Conference in Salt Lake City. Each September, elected and appointed officials from around the state meet to discuss common problems and solutions.
 
The League’s attorney reminds us of our sworn duties and obligations.  He reminds us that we are servants of our citizens.  He encourages us to get along with each other and to be civil at all times.  I’ve never heard a single attendee disagree with his advice.  Getting along and treating each other with respect is advice as old as recorded history. That doesn’t mean that you are milk toast; just that you act like you are supposed to act.  Maybe some of our national politicians could use a lesson or two!

Dear Friends:

I have had the good fortune and great privilege of knowing a lot of characters in my life.  I recently revisited a book written by my good friend Joel Frandsen.  He was born and raised in Elsinore, and chose to come home to enjoy his retirement.  Sadly, Joel has passed on to that great forest in the sky now, but he was a forest service officer for 34 years in Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada and Utah.
 
He was also a Utah State Forester for five years.  Joel’s great spirit and memory lives on, so I’ll switch from past tense to present.  Joel is a staunch supporter of Multiple Use - Sustained Yield principles in the management of public lands.

Dear Friends:

The great Roman philosopher and orator, Cisero, said, “Gratitude is the parent of all other virtues.”  Actually, he said it in Latin, but since very few of us know that language, we’ll have to settle for a best attempt at the translation!
 
I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude the past few weeks.  I recently read a book entitled, The Little Book of Gratitude by Ed J. Pinegar.  I highly recommend it to everyone.  It describes the power and impact this trait can make on the quality of our lives. Read more ...
