A celebration of democracy and of Richard “Dick” Allgood

Colorful shirts were everywhere at the fifth annual American Legion 7th District Oratorical Contest.

Burgers for Civic Engagement

Ophir Middle School and Lone Peak High School (LPHS) Social Studies teacher Tony Coppola is often seen harnessing the flames of a massive grill outside of LPHS home games. The burgers he masterfully grills help 8th grade students earn their way to Washington D.C. He describes how the fundraising works and why the effort is so important.
