Local artists that previously had an Arts and Crafts studio in Huntsville, have reopened in Clearfield Utah. Lots of local valley residents have enjoyed the unique rustic furniture that is built with quality craftsmanship. Original o1l paintings are also being displayed in their new gallery. Some of the subjects the artists enjoy painting are wildlife, historical Northern Utah outdoor settings and mountain scenes that capture the beauty of the sun and moon in var- ious seasons throughout the year. Also, amazing Indian settings that capture the eye and the soul. David Paul (owner and artist) was born in Clearfield Utah, and discovered his love of painting when he was nine years old. At that time, he was inspired by an artist named Lucille Stock. David states, “In my art, I am trying to express the feelings of sacredness of the mountains, and nature’s patterns as seen through the eyes of the Native Americans and oth ho have witnessed the pristine untouched natural world. Only an image of a painting can really capture the mood of the mountains, and nature’s continuous quest for survival.

Ogden — ' PTSA President Says Thank You As the school year has come to a close, I want all of you to know how much I’ve enjoyed working with you. | realize that what was accomplished at Snowcrest Jr. High this year wouldn’t have happened without the great help and support of parents, staff, students, and community. As a PTSA Board, we have had many fun activities and events take place this year. We accomplished our goal of having over 5,000 volunteer hours. Another PTSA goal was to sup- port the positive atmosphere between the school and the home. The “Love and Logic” training for parents, newsletter, and the acknowledgement of eleven individuals who have made a difference in the lives of our children helped meet this goal. I want to thank Mr. Stillwell and the staff at Snowcrest Jr. High for all their support and help to make this past year a success. They have been great people to work with. The people who have served on the PTSA Board were very caring, capable and responsible in fulfilling their commitments, and each deserves a special thanks. I will always remember the new friendships and great times | have had serving as the PTSA President at Snowcrest. 1 wish the best of luck to the new PTSA President Donna Linford and her board. Rosemary White, Eden, Snowcrest Jr. High PTSA 1999-2000 President, Community Asked to Say, “No” to Fluoride tion I urge all citizens to refuse fluoridaof public water, and refuse to allow the issue to be put on a ballot, regardless of whether or not you choose to use fluoride personally. The news media has glossed over the hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific documents verifying fluoride’s dangers and ineffectiveness. Condescending Dentists and Dental Hygienists pretend that only the “uneducated” oppose fluoride without clarifying that naturally occurring calciumfluoride (with its dozens of accompanying minerals) is not interchangeable with the untreated pesticide tailings (sodium-fluoride or hydro-fluorosilicate + unlabeled contaminants) we innocently add to public water! Dentists are not empowered to give medical advice on the body. Outside the oral cavity; Doctors can only legally prescribe to one person at a time, yet I’m facing the possibility of my uneducated neighbors forcing a medical treatment on me through a vote?! I’ll “just say no” - and I’'m in good company too, since a Nobel Prize winning scientist has labeled fluorida- tion a “fraud,” an AMA President has called fluoridation “deplorable,” 1500 well-educated EPA scientists have gone on record against it, and even the FDA won’t approve fluoride. Thousands more doctors, scientist, world leaders, and whole countries are against fluoridation! Experiment on yourself. Explore alternate dispensing if you must. Our moral responsibility is supplying public water utilities that account for even a “single” no vote, a single dialysis patient, or a single thirsty child who is already overdosed on fluoride-laden foods. tion, lenges rules” (Try halting the sugar consumphygiene and nutritional chalthat cause decay.) “Majority does not represent freedom and the American way. “One’s right to life, liberty and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote” -US Supreme Court, Justice Robert Jackson in W.
