THE INTERNET Beaver School District has all of its elementary and high schools networked, and will have access to internet in all the classrooms in the Beaver County Schools. Currently workshops are taking place within the schools to train students in the proper and appropriate use of internet both in the classrooms and in the computer labs within the schools. Milford High School has elected to spend it's ET1 money this year on providing new computers in the computer lab.

The public passed a bond allowing Beaver School District to sell bonds in an effort to build two new high schools at the same time. Those high schools are now complete. Milford High has an outstanding track facility. The school district has replaced the west fence and added outside curb and gutter on the Milford High Track.

The Beaver High running track construction has had a lot of interest of the patrons of Beaver County and Beaver High School. That construction project was started in June. The builder, Malolt Peterson Renner, has built tracks throughout the United States, and is in fact the largest builder of tracks in the United States. They were the builder of the Milford track. Malott Peterson Renner has given the school district a sequential list from the grading, to the concrete work, to the irrigation sy stem g .to the which turned into a turf seeding project, and to clean-u- p and close out with a one week contingency for weather distractions. After September 12, the company would have to reimburse the school district $300 per day if they were not completed. It appears this project will be completed by then. The turfing part of the project was in an effort to make the field playable for the fall season. It was felt that it would be safer for athletes, both Beaver athletes and visiting athletes, to play on the field rather than on the alternate playing surface at least some The difference place in Beaver. g between the and the turfing project w as $ 11, 500. The turf was purchased from DcMille Turf Farms in Cedar City because they cut the turf in six foot lengths. Looking back, we believe it was a decision made both in the interest of students and in economics. The heavy rains would have scattered the hydro-see- d and made the g not work as well. We believe that the turf is important because students use the surface for P.E. as much as or in fact more that they use the surface for competitive sports. Hopefully, those who have contributed to the turf project will feel good about their contributions. We appreciate all of the Boosters of Beaver 1 ligh athletics and Beaver School District programs.

Joseph Smith, their prophet received a relevation in which the Lord commanded the Saints to "seek knowledge out of the best books of the land." Brighara Young said to his followers, "Parents, I want you to teach your children not only to read but to love to read." The pioneers who settled Minersville were also anxious to start schools in their community. The first schools here were usually held in the homes of the teachers. The furniture was quite often moved out during the day, long benches were moved in for school, and men the furniture replaced at night. In 1860. (leorge Roberts taught school for one bushel of wheat a day. At one time, he taught in an adobe budding in the middle of the church block. This building had a fire place to keep the children warm and was also used for the church meetings. In his own words, George said this about schools, "In the fall of the first year I w as in Minersville, the people voted me to tench school, so hydro-seedin- 'U and a whole host of other brands are all eligible for redemption through he Campbell's Labels for I Education Program.

The children would ... have to chant their multiplication tables before they could go home at Father loved kids but night. sometimes he switched them when they misbehaved." Rollins Lightner Mary arrived in Minersville in 1863. She taught school in her home, an adobe building. She states. "In time we got settled and Mr. Lightner, bciug a carpenter, had work to do. I could always have sewing of men's suits and making button holes. 1 w as quite proficient with the needle. Then I taught school. I had some married men in my school.
