Over 100 inches of snow in a 24-hour period in Tooele

In observation of this writer’s first birthday on March 27, 1949, Mother Nature blessed Tooele Valley with over 100 inches of snow in a single 24-hour period. Seems impossible, but it’s true.

GHS to host rodeo Saturday

Being a cowboy or cowgirl is extra hard work. The sport of rodeo adds a whole new meaning to “extracurricular” activities. A typical day for students on the Grantsville rodeo team consists of early morning chores, a full day of school, exercising horses after school, practice, nightly chores and homework. The weekends rarely include rest. Usually, Grantsville rodeo team members […]
