Horrocks and Carolyn Taunya Wilson have authored the text that will appear with Mary Ann Judd-Johnson- 's exhibit entitled Homes: Historical "Lehi A Sesquicentennial Water Color Collection." The exhibit makes its debut on Thursday, Oct. 9 from 7 to 10 p.m. in an open house at the Lehi Arts Center, 685 N. Center Street. Following the open house, the paintings will remain on display weeknights from 7 to 9 .m. through Oct. 30. Horrocks and Wilson teamed up to prepare the accompanying text for 100 of the homes on display. One of particular note is the William S. Evans home, which belonged to Horrocks' great grandfather. Horrocks lived in the north side of the double home with her parents, Dale and Karma Evans Whimpey, until she was four years old. Jayleen Wycherley, another of Evans, moved into the home to take care of her grandmother, Evans' daughter Juliette E. Goates Taylor. Other homes which were connected with the writers included the home of Lawrence and Gertrude Morton, Wilson's grandparents, and the home of John and Irene Whimpey, Horrocks' paternal grandparents. The project started when the artist told Horrocks she planned to do a calendar featuring some of her paintings. When Horrocks volunteered some information about who n owned the homes that had painted, the latter asked her to compile more information. Horrocks then enlisted the help of Wilson, who works with her at Legacy Elementary. The two dabbled at first, thinking that the project would be easy, but then started working more seriously as the task became more difficult. They credited Dale Peterson and Richard Van Wagoner for invaluable assistance in the project. Horrocks said that her mother was not even aware of some of the history of the Evans home, even though she had lived there. But those who knew about the history became excited about the project. "Most people were very willing to share what they knew," said Horrocks. "Sometimes we even found out more than we wanted to know."

Reldon Barnes Johnny Barnes ., . v., Mm James -- I ItI rs I Carl Mellor Dixon Meadow Elementary under new management By Russ Daly City Editor The sign at the entrance says it all: A Place Where People Love What They Do. Such is the philosophy of the faculty and staff at Meadow Elementary under the direction of Karen Dunn and Annette Verhaal, the newly appointed principal and assistant principal, respectively. "It's exciting, it's tiring and it has its moments of frustration," said Dunn of taking over the reins of the school. The two administrators have started or are in the process of starting several new programs at the school, includ ing a schoolwide discipline program, where all of the classrooms have the same set of rules and expectations. Dunn and Verhaal have talked with the students about behavior in the school and in the lunchroom and the corresponding motivation points the students can earn for demonstrating the proper behavior. In harmony with the Alpine School District, as well as the Utah State Board of Education, Meadow Elementary is focusing on balanced literacy, where educators take the best from the whole language philosophy and See MEADOW on Page 4 David Haws hopes his Midpoint Plaza will revitalize downtown By Russ Daly City Editor How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there, you can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, so go downtown. Although it is located "downtown," a Lehi entrepreneur hopes to revitalize Lehi's Main Street with a new complex that will be known as Midpoint Plaza. David Haws, who started Haws Floral in 1980 at 127 E. Main, is the man behind this project, which will feature seven stores, anchored by a new Haws Floral facility that will be nearly three times the size of the current shop. Hogi Yogi and Teriyaki Bowl have already signed for space, and other tenants who have interest could expressed include a pizza restaurant, beauty salons, realty offices and retail outlets. Tenants will Clark be by managed Commercial so that Haws can focus on his own business. "I think it's going to give people an opportunity to get things at home," said Haws. "I would like to concentrate on things that will help the community." Haws' grandfather, Jay, built the red brick building in 1953 as a coal business. Later, the building became home to a doctor's office, a dentist's office, a catering operation and then the site of Pee Wee's Garden of Eatin' restaurant. His mother, Shirley, later established a paint and glass shop, then added crafts and flowers. Haws took over and created his present establishment; he also started an Orem store in 1990, which he also operated for five years. Now, Haws is working with his brother, Eric, a contractor, to build the new Midpoint Plaza. A graduate of Lehi High School, Haws attended Utah State University, where he studied illustration design. He had wanted to pursue a career as a graphic artist in the advertising field or perhaps work in the entertainment industry as a set designer. His interest in those areas may have stemmed from his part time high school jobs at Lehi Floral and Brown Floral, the latter of which really sparked his interest in design because of their spectacular Christmas displays. His popular annual Christmas open house and his line of Christmas items have brought customers in from all over the state of Utah. In addition to his own creative inner work, Haws is also interested in helping others develop their own talents. For eight years, he served as chairman of the Miss Lehi Scholarship Pageant and has continued since that time to promote young woman as they prepare for such events by See HAWS on Page 4 ilPOQ Photo by Russ Daly David Haws, owner of Haws Floral, which will be the hallmark of the new Midpoint Plaza, now under construction on Main Street, puts his artistry to work on a floral design in his shop. The new Haws Floral will be about three times the size of the current facility.
