Mary-Wisema- List of Pioneers , 7yer Robbins checks out grinding stone at lilford Elementary Pioneer Living Experience. Many activities were enjoyed by Milford Elementary' School students in celebration of the Pioneer Sesquiccntennial. Our school year began with all students participating in a Pioneer Living Experience. Artifact displays and hands on activities were set up in our multipurpose room. Students rotated among the various stations learning pioneer methods for living. Some of the activities included were: clothes washing in a tub, churning butter, panning for gold, tanning leather, grinding wheat & making dough, making arrowheads from flint, spinning cotton thread & making bracelets, using old time shaving kits, stringing macaroni necklaces, etc. This was a worthwhile learning experience and allowed students to enjoy using the tools as well as seeing them. Teachers and students felt that this was one of the best programs we have had presented at our school. The Dcscret New spaper sponsored No Books and again in Day was held in March for grades April for K-- 3 grades. This is an annual program using newspapers in the classroom for the day. The Sesquiccntennial and pioneer life were featured this year. The third grade students were involved in an historical art project students created collages using watcrcolors to paint a sunset background. A covered wagon, people, animals, trees, etc. completed the collage. The fourth grade Utah History class has been following the historical trek of the early pioneers as well as the modern day trek. They are using daily journal entries and maps that are being published in the Salt Lake newspaper. Fifth grade students enjoyed an outing to the Milford Cemetery where they participated in fact finding activities described in the Beaver County Monitor. Our students and staff hav e gained a greater appreciation for our pioneer heritage and the trials and joys experienced by our forefathers. -6 4th A of July Celebration is being the for 4th of July by the Union planned Pacific Employees Club.

The early pioneers of Iteaver County list was recently sealed in a heavy map tube and given to Vernon and Carol Condie, whose family is driving the Beaver County covered wagon on the 1997 Mormon Trail w agon. The wagon train left Iowa in April and is due to arrive in Salt Lake in late July. The Condies left the train and wagon w ith their son in late May. and returned home for several day s to attend their daughter. Leone's, high school graduation. The early pioneers list, to be transported as part of the 1997 wagon train, was proposed by the Beaver Valley Historical Commission with the support of the Beaver County Travel Council and the Beaver Stake of the L.D.S. Church. Its intent is to list the names of the early pioneers who settled the various communities in the county. Il is a memorial to their extraordinary physical and mental courage, endurance and dedicxlion. To facilitate preparation of the list it was determined that those included would have had to be born somewhere other than in the Territory of Utah, and settled in Beaver County prior to 1869, the year the transcontinental railroad was completed. It was determined that with only a few exceptions they must also have died and been buried in the county. In some instances an individual may have settled and spent their life in the area, but as an elderly person lived elsewhere with family when they died. Also several individuals and families, such as the were included. Typically these individuals were among the original settlers and lived in the country long enough so that all or most of their children were born here. For various reasons they settled elsewhere in their later years, and did not die here. The D.U.P. Camp in Minersville was able to compile its list through cemetery records and recording information directly from grave stones. In Beaver it was determined to use the list of original pioneers printed in flie book. ' Monuments to Courage". However, since the list contained only die names of men and did not list their spouse or any children who might quality, several individuals spent long hours at the Stake Genealogy Ann Messer and Library researching those names. Marsha Dalton. both specialist at the library, did most of the research. Ann estimates that she spent at least 30 hours at the computer and with other record sources. Though Milford was not settled until the 1870's. the D.U.P Camp and several individuals submitted names of pioneers who settled and lived in the Milford Valley and Frisco area. Others who read about the project submitted names and genealogy records of their ancestors. One letter came from Portland. Oregon and called attention to the Woodhouse and Slaughter families. Since there was room in the map tube, all of these letters and lists were included, as is. and are being transported w ith the official , lists. While it is understood that there was some initial confusion as to the criteria for being included on the list, and that some individuals were no doubt overlooked in its preparation, a copy of the Beaver list will be displayed at the Post Office. Individuals are invited to submit the names of anyone they think might have been left off. If they quality , these names will be added to the list. It will be sent with the Allen Gales in early July and Family who plan to join the wagon train complete the remainder of the journey.

Southern Region Fishing Report MOUNTAIN BEAVER LAKES: Puffer Lake is now is Access accessible. as far as Upper Kent's Lake in the South Fork drainage. The Anderson Meadow area is Middle probable accessible but Labaron Reservoir is likely not. Fishing at Kent 's has been good using bait from shore. Overwinter survival of trout was 1 good at Upper Kent's with good numbers of to Vt lb cutthroat and brook trout far but look for it to pick up soon. A so slow present. Fishing there has been section of stream (approximately 900 ft) immediately above Upper Kent's is closed to fishing until July 2 to protect spawning cutthroat trout. BEAVER RIVER: Flows in the canyon are still.high with marginal fishing conditions. Try small spinners, jigs or wet flies for small brown trout and rainbows when the river drops again. Irrigation releases from Minersville have begun, with high flows now below the reservoir. MINERSVILLE RESERVOIR: Conditions are changing at the reservoir. Water level is rising but the reservoir is still clear. Fishing success has picked up somewhat this past week but anglers are still spending some time to catch lish. There has been some surface activity, primarily large midges int he evenings on warmer days. Wooly buggers, leach patterns and nymphs have all been w orking. Spinning gear with a bubble and wet flics or jigs have been effective too. Best success has still been fishing fairly close to shore. A good year class of small mouth bass (6-- 8 inches) arc becoming active and are readily catchable. A few larger small mouth bass have also been reported. Pressure has been down the past couple of weeks. Remember special regulations: artificial flies and lures onlv, and limit of one trout, which must be at least 20 inches long. An additional AMENDMENT to the proclamation is NOW IN EFFECT. It is 1 1 ILLEGAL to fish with any item that contains chemicals, prepared ftxxl stuft's, or other material that attracts fish primarily by the senses of taste or smell. This new restriction is due to concerns with hooking mortalitv associated w ith the use of such altractants on artificial baits.
