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

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.”

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.
Victims of domestic violence or sexual assault/rape in the area have immediate assistance and resources available to them though the New Horizons Crisis Center in Richfield, which serves Sevier, Wayne, Sanpete, Millard, and Piute Counties. The center is primarily funded by federal and state grants, but also depends on private donations to assist in serving those in need. Redmond Inc’s SOAR foundation has volunteered to host a charity golf tournament with all proceeds going directly towards these victims at the crisis center.
The event will be held Friday, June 19 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cove View Golf Course in Richfield. The four-man scramble, 18- hole tournament will include lunch, raffle drawings, and big prizes for the winners, and those interested need to RSVP as soon as possible by calling 529-7402. The cost is $300 for a foursome team.
Redmond has a long-standing relationship with New Horizons and has assisted in supporting them for several years, which has been appreciated.
“They’ve always been good to help when we need it,” said New Horizons Director Debbie Mayo. “Private donations are always so appreciated. We are a 45 bed facility, and this is the first year we’ve officially been ‘full’ — we had 51 victims here at one time.”
This past year the center has assisted over 150 women, 10 men, and 81 children.
“We provide crisis intervention for victims and assist them by providing shelter, safety plans, and resources for those in need,” said Mayo. “Depending on the victim’s circumstances, they may be here as long as thirty days, and our services have proven valuable to many. We’re grateful to Redmond for their willingness to help.”
