Volume XIV Issue XIV The Ogden Valley news Page October 1, 2007 Alpine Pizza Celebrates Fifth Birthday Annual Ogden Canyon Cleanup Slated Alpine Pizza has been serving the Ogden Valley for five years since its opening on September 25, 2002. “It has been a pleasure to serve the Valley,” says Jim Halay, owner of Alpine Pizza. “I believe the formula for our success is serving high quality products such as pizza, sandwiches, and hot wings. Many fast food restaurants make average pizzas but we believe the discriminating consumers of Ogden Valley can tell the difference when you use really good ingredients. Alpine Pizza is celebrating their anniversary with a birthday party on Saturday evening, October 13, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. with balloons for the kids, door prizes, and cake and ice cream for everyone. Alpine Pizza is open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays; 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; and 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Sundays. Alpine Pizza is located in Eden near the Red Moose Lodge. For more information contact Alpine Pizza by calling 745-1900. Mark Your Calendars for October 13 The Doug Braithwaite One Man Show is an event you will not want to miss. Wilkerson Fine Art & Consulting is pleased to host this event, which includes dance performances by Valley Dance Ensemble and musical performances by singer, songwriter Nathan Fox. Kris Wilkerson, owner of Wilkerson Fine Art & Consulting, states, “We have been looking forward to a one man show by Doug Braithwaite, one of Utah’s premier plein air painters, for over two years. Doug’s work is extremely popular and, therefore, can be difficult to gather a sufficient number of great paintings to conduct a one-man show.” Doug’s love of Ogden Valley and partnership with Wilkerson Fine Art led him to set aside time in his schedule to paint exclusively for this show. This exhibit will feature new works, many of them depicting Ogden Valley scenes. Wilkerson states, “If you have seen the invitation for this event, which depicts a 14” x 16” oil entitled Wolf Creek, you will know why we are expecting a sold out exhibit. The depth, texture and layers of the pieces will surprise and delight even the long time collector of Braithwaite’s works.” In talking about his work, Doug comments, “I enjoy the outdoors—pleinair painting is a lot about surviving the elements. Feeling the heat or cold, the bugs, the wind, all somehow become translated into the paintings. I also work in the studio, but all my work is based on time I have spent outside. Keeping my work fresh, I have found, is a challenge. I often worry that it will be hard to continue to be a landscape painter in a place where you have lived and worked all your life. But I have found that what used to seem to be a limited resource is, in fact, quite limitless. The more I paint, the more options for paint- ings are opened up. While I am constantly looking for new motifs to paint, I have also noticed that working from the same places over and over again has infinite possibilities—in that the light changes throughout the day, as well as throughout the year, and offers endless subtle changes in mood and personality. I also believe that there is a certain Geometry and/or rhythm that may be some of the underlying influences. “As I strive to move forward in my work, I am trying to understand and express these things. I am constantly looking for the balance between the abstract quality of a satisfying paint stroke verses the accumulation of paint strokes that add up the visual expression and hopefully then to some kind of an emotional experience for whoever stops to look.” Kris Wilkerson promises, “This will be a celebration of art, music and dance you won’t want to miss.” The evening will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Pineview Lodge, 3923 Wolf Creek Dr., Eden, Utah with African and Modern Dance performed by Valley Dance Ensemble. Valley Dance Ensemble is Northern Utah’s only modern dance organization. Following the dancers, at 5:00 p.m., Nathan Fox will provide his earthy groove, textured colorfully by catchy melodies and the raw soul of his voice. Water has become a big part of this San Diego native’s life. Its rhythm can be felt in the rolling surge of his pop, blues, reggae, rock, and mellow acoustic vibe. The stories told from travels around the country with bands, school in Boston, family, and a more than occasional bout with love are clever and poetic. Braithwaite’s One Man Show will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will continue through 9:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The public is cordially invited. All paintings will be for sale and interested parties should contact Kris Wilkerson at (801) 745-9557, or via email at <kris@ wilkersonfineart.com> All children ages 3 yrs. through 6th grade are invited!

Families, volunteer organizations, and youth and church groups are especially needed. “Each time we hold a cleanup—spring and fall—we fill a whole dump truck full of trash, and that’s just from the garbage that is found on the sides of the road in Ogden Canyon. That’s a lot of trash,” states canyon resident Keith Rounkles. This year’s cleanup will be held Saturday, October 13. If you would like to participate, please meet at the Alaskan Inn at 9:00 a.m. where volunteers will receive instructions and assignments for the cleanup. Again, everyone’s help is needed! This year a new opportunity for helping to cleanup the shores of Pineview Reservoir is being introduced. The Adopta-Shoreline program will be available for groups who would like to help remove garbage around a specific area of shoreline at their own convenience. For more details, call Keith Rounkles. He will help arrange for trash bags, which will be provided; and trash pickup services from the Forest Service. Rounkles can be contacted by calling 801-668-8844.
