With this being the last week of school, I wanted to give a message to the graduating class of 2018. A graduation ceremony is always such a special occasion, the culmination of years of hard work; the completion of goals that were set and the acknowledgement of successes achieved. This is the end of an era in your life and the beginning of a new chapter. You have worked hard to arrive to this phase in life and will always have fond memories to look back on and draw from. You have formed relationships that will endure a lifetime. But the law of nature teaches us that life is about change and you are at a point in your journey that leads you to face many opportunities. A wise man once said that “you will make your own breaks in life”, that wise man is my father, Tom Wood. I have lived by these words and with my father’s influence; I have become the man I am today. I have been blessed with many positive influences in my life and am grateful for each and every one of them. I would tell each of you that with graduation comes great responsibility and remind each of you not to forget your support structure. You have family and friends that will be there for you at times of need or just to listen to the struggles of the day. Life is not always fair and does not always go as planned, but be confident that you have learned the tools necessary to overcome life’s trials and “ make your own breaks”. Henry Ford wisely said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is a progress and working together is success.” As you look back over the last few years, certainly there was a beginning, and thankfully there was also progress and yes undeniably you have been successful. I would encourage you to remember back to your first day of school. We all started out the same way, a little nervous, a little excited and not sure of exactly what to expect. Over your years in school you learned the routine of school life, what to expect for lunch, be to class on time, and you have made friends along the way. As you advanced through the grades your routines changed at certain milestones. As you advanced to Junior High and then to High School you became more accountable for your own destiny. You were able to make more of your own choices and hopefully have learned that things don’t always work out as you have planned. Your journey, although short has lead you to this point in life and prepared you to adapt to future routines. This is merely the beginning of many routines to master in life. Some say that this is the end of the easy life and the beginning of the real challenges life has to offer. The future is in your hands and the decisions you make from this point on will have major effects on your life. Choose wisely and “make your own breaks”. You cannot rely on luck; you must dedicate yourself to the future, and live the American dream. I must remind you that you are already at an advantage in life and are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world. The American dream is alive and well and is yours for the taking. The sky is truly the limit. The graduating class of 2018 holds the future in your hands. But not only your futures, for you hold the future of the American dream and the American way of life in your hands. Among you are future business owners, elected officials, community leaders, baseball coaches, farmers, moms and dads to say the least. You are ready and willing to take the torch and make the future decades of this great country the greatest in history. May your years ahead continue to be characterized by empathy, compassion, objectivity and willingness to take risks. For without risk there is no reward. May you always lead by example, work hard, and live life to the fullest. May your successes be many and your tribulations are few and far between. I would be not the Sheriff if I did not mention that graduation day is not a free pass to go wild. Celebrate your accomplishments tonight with friends and family, but do so responsibly. Make sure you are where you are supposed to be, don’t do anything that you would not do with your parents. Please make good choices and remember that decisions made today could affect the rest of your lives. I want to leave you with a few words of wisdom I have learned through my lifetime. 1. Never be afraid to ask questions, the only dumb question is the one never asked. 2. If you see someone without a smile, give them yours. 3. Dare to dream and realize that dreams are always within reach. I still remember a young boy who once dreamed of becoming sheriff. 4. Hard work does pay off if you are dedicated to a job well done. With all of that said, I want to say congratulations to the graduating class of 2018. May god bless you and go out there and “make your own breaks in life.” Thank you Sheriff Jeff Wood

Carbon County Sheriff’s Office Is doing a drill in conjunction with #Utahgreatshakeout for Chrysilis. Drill is happening at 700 East and 100 South from 9:45-11.

Latest PRWID Update: We’ve had a bit of a setback. There are large quantities of air trapped in the main line that we are finding difficult to remove. This prevents water from flowing over the high points in the system. Basically, we need to get the water line to burp. Our crews are still out and will remain working on getting the flow moving as quickly as possible. You will notice when water gets to your home that there will be a lot of air for the first while. Also, the water may appear cloudy or milky. The water is and will be safe to drink, but air dissolves into the water creating the cloudiness or milky appearance. If you set a glass of water out for a few minutes, you will see it clear by itself. The best course of action is to fill a pitcher and put it in the refrigerator. When you want a drink, the water will be clear.

Water update- Price River Water Improvement District Price City has generously offered water to those who need it.

Many of Carbon County residents are without water this morning as a result of a main water line break. This break has left Price River Water Improvement District (PRWID) crews working round the clock since Friday evening. Carbon County along with Wellington City have signed a Local Sate of Disaster Declaration for this event. At this time repairs are estimated to take about 48 more hours. There will be a briefing at 11am for emergency personnel to discuss where to stage available water collection for residents in need. We will keep the public informed of the locations as soon as they are decided upon. Please follow Carbon County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page for the most up to date information regarding this event.

**UPDATE** Fairgrounds Road is now open to traffic, please use caution and drive slow through the area as there are hoses transporting water over the road. Crews are still working diligently addressing this problem. Thank you for your patience as they continue. ROAD CLOSURE Due to a main water line brake Fairgrounds Road from the Westwood Blvd. entrance is closed. Please use the Carbon Ave. entrance as the preferred detour. There is not an estimated duration of the closure. We ask that you avoid the area if possible, allowing crews to work quickly and safely.

Carbon County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce Frankie Tapia, Arthur Parry and Dominic Rondinelli have completed the Peace Officer Standard and Training (POST) receiving their Law Enforcement Officer Certification from Utah State University Eastern. Thank you for your dedication to excellence and to our community.

All local Law Enforcement agencies in collaboration with the Carbon County School District participated in an exercise at Carbon High School on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. Many hours of planning went into making this exercise effective. The scenario began with a suspicious male being reported in the school. Upon his detection the school was placed on "lock down" students and teachers in the school heard actual gun shots being fired as the perpetrators went through the halls of the school. Law Enforcement arrived shortly after and proceeded to eliminate the threats. Once the area was secure the student body was evacuated and waited while the school was cleared in its entirety. In an effort to continually update our response plans and provide the best training possible, we are asking that you take a few moments to fill out the attached anonymous survey. The input from community will help Law Enforcement update procedures and provide a comprehensive response.

WARNING! Carbon County residents are being targeted by scam artists pretending to be the Sheriff’s Office. Residents are being called from local phone numbers advising them that there is a warrant for their arrest. Law Enforcement does not warn of warrants over the phone nor will they ever ask for money to be sent over the phone. Another scam that has been reported are scammers calling pretending to be family members, stating that they have been arrested and that their attorney needs a retainer fee. We advise you to NEVER send money over the phone and if you have been a victim of these scams please report it.

“We leave our doors unlocked, we have great neighbors, our neighborhood safe.” If these are words you use to describe your home consider the following: Carbon County Sheriff’s Office has responded to a higher than average amount of thefts, vehicle and home burglaries primarily in the Spring Glen, Kenilworth area. These crimes are non-forced, crimes of opportunity. Here are some tips to keep yourselves and your property safe. • Always lock your home and car doors. • Never leave valuables in your car, this includes: firearms, wallets, electronics, purses, sporting equipment, loose change, etc. • Clear overgrown vegetation on property that make good hiding places. • Well-lit entry ways and motion lights. • Take photographs of your valuable belongings including serial numbers.

A Social Media post has been going viral about threats to a New Mexico School with the same acronym as “CHS”. This has caused some concern to our local area. There is NO CORRELATION between this and Carbon High School. Below is the link to the actual story from Clovis, New Mexico Police Department.

Please share and let everyone know.

**UPDATE** roads to the north and south underpasses of Spring Glenn are now open. The structure fire is believed to be caused from the backfire of a small truck, igniting fuel in nearby storage containers. There were no injuries. Structure fire at 3550 Spring Glen Road. At this time access to Spring Glenn is restricted to only the north underpass. Updates to come.
