Gunnison Valley Hospital Volunteers will have their annual Book and Gift Fair to raise money for hospital volunteer programs and charities on Thursday, October 15 and 16 in the front corridor of the hospital.

Dave Edgel of Books Are Fun will bring a wide variety of books and gift ideas for the holiday season for customers to peruse.

The volunteer program at the Gunnison Valley Hospital began 10-years ago and has contributed to a number of items for the hospital including two TVs, VCRs, and the stands to put them on in order for patients to enjoy movies instead of watching television. They’ve also purchased a number of great movies for patients to choose from.

The volunteers are having a special bookcase made to compliment the new decor in the hospital lobby. Patients and patrons will be able to choose a book to read while in the hospital or as they wait for testing or surgical procedures.

Monies raised from this book sale will go toward other volunteer and charity programs at the hospital.

The public is encouraged to attend this annual Book Sale on Thursday, October 15 from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 P.M. and Friday, October 16 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 P.M.

Free Waterfowl Hunting Clinics

Clinics will be held Sept. 12

You can learn the basics of duck and goose hunting at two upcoming clinics.

The clinic in south-central Utah is open to those 17 years of age and younger. In southeastern Utah, those of all ages are welcome to attend.

The clinics are free. They happen Sept. 12.

South-central Utah

Young people can learn how to hunt ducks and geese at the second annual Waterfowl Hunting clinic in south-central Utah.

The clinic will be held Sept. 12 at Redmond Lake. The lake is in Salina, just east of Richfield. It runs from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Anyone 17 years of age and younger is invited to attend.

“You don’t need to bring anything with you—just a passion for hunting and learning about wildlife,” says Heather Talley, regional wildlife recreation coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. “Engaging in different aspects of the clinic will help prepare you for the hunt.”

To register for the event, or for more information, call Talley at 435-868-8756.

Blair Stringham, migratory game bird coordinator for the DWR, says the waterfowl clinic will be a great opportunity to learn how to hunt waterfowl. “You’ll learn about biology, decoys, calls and everything else you need to know to be successful,” he says.

And, you might win a prize. Door prizes and raffle items will be given away. A free lunch will also be provided.

Ducks Unlimited and Delta Waterfowl, the nation’s leading waterfowl conservation organizations, are among those who helped put the event together. After the clinic is over, Delta Waterfowl has mentors that can help you apply the skills you’ve learned by taking you hunting.

“If you’re a new hunter, and you’re interested in duck or goose hunting, Delta Waterfowl can put you in touch with one of our mentors and get you started,” says Jeff Adams, a member of Delta Waterfowl. “We know the excitement that comes from standing in the marsh, napping in a layout blind and especially the excitement that comes from harvesting your first bird.”

In addition to Ducks Unlimited and Delta Waterfowl, Barrett’s Food Town, Fresh Market and Wal-Mart have joined with the DWR to make the event possible.

FullSizeRender          Chevia Nelson, Salina, is fulfilling her dream of opening her own dance studio this fall with the grand opening of Releve’te dance Academy, and is currently accepting registrations. A former NSHS drill/song squad member and captain and Miss North Sevier (winning with her self-choreographed dance routine), she has been studying Modern Dance and teaching dance lessons for the past four years.

“My dream with this company is to have it be a positive experience for the dancers,” she said. “I want my students to be each other’s biggest fans and to cheer each other on. I want this to be a really positive thing for the girls.”

                The mission statement for the studio is ” to give all dancers a new perspective on the world of dance, to open their eyes to the possibilities, dreams and future dance can bring. We are “Raising the Barre”.


Instruction will be held at the North Sevier Recreation Center this first year while a permanent location is being secured, and various levels and styles of classes will be available for everyone from 18 months to 92 years old.  Several of the classes being offered include a parent/tot class, princess prep, competition (teams, solos, duets, trios), modern, jazz, clogging, and ballet. In the team competition dance classes, students will learn two routines, and classes will be 90 minutes each and will include technique. In addition, a creative process class will be offered where interested students can learn the basics of choreography, and Nelson will be offering a ballet boot camp (low impact/toning) for those 18 years of age and older, and no dance background is required.

“We dance to learn and develop first, self confidence, then determination, passion, happiness, friendship, and honor,” said Nelson.

Nelson and Mariposa Einfeldt will be the two main instructors at the studio, with Kodi Jo McKinlay also assisting.  Registration is ongoing and will continue through August 20. Call 435-896-7120 or stop by Cotton Tree Quilt Company in Salina for more information.
