Mayor's Corner 03/18/15

Dear Friends:
This has been a tough week for all who know the Petersons and the Barnetts, their families, and their extended families.  Prayers and tears are plentiful and will continue. Tragedy has a way of unifying us and marshaling resources of love, concern and action.
 
This tragedy has caused me to hug my loved ones a little longer and to express my heartfelt appreciation to those who do so much in the local families, communities, schools and churches.
 
My wife is the oldest of ten children. Those who live near here get together for a family night once every month. It’s a large group, with ages spanning the full spectrum from the very young to those of us who are simply young at heart.  After eating together, the youngsters get a chance to run and play hide and seek for a while, after which we are always presented with a lesson.

Dear Friends: 
The past three weeks, Richfield has been honored to host State Basketball Tournaments for the 1-A and 2-A Boys and Girls classifications.  It’s been great to watch the teams compete, and I offer my congratulations to all who participated.
 
I was very involved in sports throughout my younger life, and some of my most positive influences were coaches and assistants.  Their greatest desire and motivation was to bring out the best in us. Hundreds of hours are donated by so many in all the various sports.  I include with these the cheerleading teams and drill teams; teaching young people to work together in a common interest and encourage them to do their best.

Mayor's Corner 03/04/15

Dear Friends: 
 
It’s been said that worry is a useless emotion.  I sometimes feel I’m bombarded with a great deal of information that’s specifically designed to make me worry!
 
As Mayor, however, there are certain things that I’m duty-bound to worry about, so you don’t have to.  Often when I wake up early, I think (and worry) about safety and about our preparations as a City and as individuals for an emergency. The Great Utah Shakeout is coming on April 16th.  This program is an annual reminder of the need for preparation.  We’ll see a number of reminders as that date comes closer, but if we prepare now to the best of our ability, we’ll feel so much better about things than if we wait until that day.
 
Naturally, I'm not as worried about the “Shakeout” exercise as I am about our readiness for real  emergencies.  The exercise is, however, a valuable tool in the preparation process. Read more ...
