Issue 98

Antelope Island

Steve took the little girls exploring on Antelope Island and taught them the finer points of birding. Janey and Ellie have been avid bird locators for years, but Saturday they learned to look up birds they saw in the field guides and identify and date their finds. They also got to play in the sand, collect rocks, and see real bison. I call that a good explore!

And the Winner Is. . . .

Steve L. competed in his third Speech and Debate League tournament held at Weber State this weekend. This time they held a two day competition. After the first day of competing Steve made the finals and returned Saturday to compete again. He took first place in Impromptu and scored a sweet football!
