APRIL IS NATIONAL CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH

APRIL IS NATIONAL CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH

Renovation of North Branch Library set to Begin

During the summer months I used to take my kids to the surrounding libraries in Weber County for “field trips.” It was so fun! We would explore the different branches from North Ogden to Huntsville and in between.  Each library had its own personality and feel to it.  Each was a new experience to visit! 

Scrolling through the thousands of books, going to “story time,” playing in the kid’s area and being a part of the Summer reading programs have all been such a highlight for me and my kids. 

Is Willard About to Become the Pits??

Just heard from the county that Blue Ox has withdrawn their application for the zoning amendment to MG-EX. So at this point any new application for a zoning change would need to start at square one.

Willard, UT- One of the best parts of Willard is the beautiful scenic mountains. However, many citizens are concerned that Willard’s beauty will soon be a thing of the past and they will be living in the pits. The gravel pits to be exact.

Weber United Community Night: Suicide Prevention

Weber High School hosted a family event in March to look for ways to help prevent suicide in our community. Representatives from various community providers were present to give valuable resources. 

First off, Ammon Fawson, from Endeavor Clinic, spoke with students and families in the auditorium regarding loss and grief from suicide. He said, “There is a lot of anger that these losses are still happening. There are feelings of fear and hopelessness, doubt, and worry.”

Rocky Mountain Battlebot Competition a League of its Own!

If you’ve never been to a Battlebot competition, you may want to make plans for next year because it may be considered some of the best family entertainment you’ve had in a while—at least it was for me! 

You might be sitting back wondering what is the Rocky Mountain Battlebot Competition?  It’s rather a mouthful to say, but it’s a manufacturing workforce development program of the Northern Utah National Tooling and Machining Association Chapter (NUNTMA). 

Hats off to Dr. Seuss!

Theodor Seuss Geisel, also known as “Dr. Seuss,” was an American writer, cartoonist, animator, book publisher, and artist best known for authoring children’s books.

Dr. Seuss took along young and old alike into his whimsical storybook adventures.  His birthday, March 2nd, is a significant day; and is now celebrated as the ‘Read Across America Day.’

This day of reading is literally exploding at Lomond View Elementary School! Librarian, Virginia Miller, who has a boundless amount of energy and talent, organizes a celebration in honor of Dr. Seuss’s legacy each year.

Education is Key to the Prevention of Alcohol and Drug Abuse

Utah, more than other area of the nation, is suffering from a silent epidemic.  From 2000 to 2014, Utah has experienced a nearly 400% increase in deaths from the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs. Each month there are 24 individuals who die from prescription drug overdoses.

  What can we do to help alleviate this growing epidemic? Constant education of the public is essential to prevent drug and alcohol abuse. There is great danger in legal prescription medications and illicit drugs.
