Blood….a gift for any time of the year.
When someone suffers a major injury or surgery, receiving a transfusion of blood can mean the difference between life and death, and that blood can only come from another human being. Modern medicine can do some amazing things, but one thing it can’t do is make blood. The only source of blood for someone in need is from a healthy person who is willing to donate. Although nearly 40% of Americans could donate blood, only 10% of the population takes the time to donate blood. Because of this lack of donations, the supply of blood available for those in need is often dangerously low. Donating blood is a simple act of service that only takes about an hour and is relatively painless. But in spite of its simplicity, it can save the life of another person. Donating blood is critical in order for hospitals to have sufficient blood supplies on hand for when people need it.
There will be a blood drive at the Salina Stake Center at 98 West 400 North on January 14th from 1:00 – 7:00. Please come and give a gift that will cost you only an hour of your time and will be priceless to someone in need.

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.
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.
