Tooele students write letters to Florida shooting survivors

Utah teens are showing support to students 2,000 miles away in Parkland, Florida. Tooele Junior High School teacher Kristine Jakin is having her classes write letters to the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Jakins says she hoped the assignment would be a good way for her students to practice their writing skills, but more importantly show the teens a way to help others, especially in a time of grieving.

GHS student receives award for National Literary Competition

Eleventh-grade Grantsville High Student, Zane Rhyne, was presented with the National Literary Competition award from Gallaudet University. This is the second year Zane has entered the contest and won.

The competition called for a short story of 1,500 words or less submitted by a student who is deaf or hard of hearing. Gallaudet University is known for being the world's only university designed to be barrier-free for deaf and hard of hearing students.

Part of the award includes the choice between a trip to Washington D.C. or a scholarship towards his college tuition. Zane will also be able to attend a week-long American Sign Language or science camp at Galludet University this summer.

Board of Education Meeting

The Board of Education meeting will be held at the Tooele County School District building located at 92 Lodestone Way, Tooele Utah.
Public session begins at 7 p.m. in the Board room.

Social Media threats originating out of Ohio

Parents/Guardians, Wednesday night we received several SafeUT tips regarding a threat made on social media to a school with the initials "SHS." This is not in reference to any of the schools in Tooele County. The post originated out of Ohio and is believed to be Springfield High School. Our local law enforcement are aware as well. As a precautionary measure there will be additional law enforcement on high school campuses Thursday.
We want to thank anyone who submitted a SafeUT tip or called into dispatch to make a report. One of the best tools in preventing a threat is when someone reports it in advance.

Ophir Park Recreation - Chalk Talk

By Clint Spindler
What does one think about while gazing out the window at this gorgeous February weather? For many, it brings thoughts that a camping trip to the beautiful Ophir Canyon Park may soon be in order. Even though Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his slumber a few days ago and saw his shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of winter, I don't intend to let that deter early planning. With the upcoming spring and prime camping season only about three months away, now is the time to get scheduling these kinds of fun outings.
