Some Teacher Jobs Saved

   Rep. Jim Bird of West Jordan announced that Senate Bill 295, the bill that would allow the Jordan School District to use building money to pay teachers, has passed.

.

   As many of you know, the Jordan School District has a $30 million deficit and had announced they would be forced to lay off 500 employees including 250 teachers.  The passage of this bill will allow the district to use around $10 million dollars for teacher salaries, potentially saving some jobs.  The governor does have to sign the bill, but he is expected to do so.

.

   The school board will have the ultimate say in exactly how those funds will be spent, but Superintendent Newbold told the Trib he thinks retaining teachers will be a priority.

   Here are the new rules and changes coming to Oquirrh Lake this year, so before you pack up the family and decide to swing down to the lake these are the NEW rules you need to know:

.

There is NO swimming and NO wading allowed this year (last year wading was allowed). Swimming will only be permitted as part of a Kennecott land approved event/activities.

 

There will no longer be parking allowed on the East Side of Oquirrh lake Rd, and a new stop sign will be put in at Oquirrh Lake Rd/ Dorena Ln.

 

All pets must be on leashes and are not allowed in the lake.

 

Fishing is still allowed in designated fishing zones (until the lake is fished out, the UDWR stills says there are no future plans to stock Oquirrh lake).

 

Lifejackets must be worn by all boaters at all times and restrict the use of motorized boats to authorized lake patrol/rescue activities.

 

 

NO portable BBQ’s, tents, or awnings will be allowed.

 

 

NO glass containers are allowed.

 

 

NO pets are allowed in the Eastlake Beach area (pets can only be taken to the North Shore Beach).

FREE Tax Preparation for Public Employees

We all know how difficult this month has been for teachers in Utah, particularly for the educators in the Jordan School District, as they prepare for the possibility of massive job layoffs by the end of June.

.

To top it all off, it’s tax season, which probably, for some of them, simple adds insult to injury. There is some good news out there when it comes to doing your taxes anyway.

.

Liberty Tax Service in Riverton, will do your returns for free this week if you are a teacher and a first time customer of Liberty. No catch, no hidden fees. Darren Openshaw is one of the owners of Liberty on 1868 West 12600 South, he says the hope is they can get you in for free this year, and hopefully you’ll come back next year, only with your checkbook open and eager to pay. But he says most importantly, “It is our way of establishing ourselves in the community, as well as giving something back to the community at the same time.”
