Corona Virus Report. Here is an article from Israel National News (English version) about how Czechoslovakia has reduced spread of Covid-19. As it says in the video, the key is preventing persons from spreading the virus is to change the focus from protecting ourselves to protecting others during the period between infection and the onset of symptoms. The Golden Rule plus personal responsibility just might be part of the answer to going about a more normal life again.

5A girls basketball championship: Highland takes first title in 36 years with a 46-34 win over Springville

Tournament MVP Kaija Glasker led the way for for the Rams during Saturday’s championship win, much like she has all season

By Brandon Gurney Feb 29, 2020, 2:44pm MST

SALT LAKE CITY — Highland decided on Saturday that 36 years had been long enough since last securing a girls state basketball championship.
Not since 1984 have the Rams taken the enviable position as last team standing — hoisting the state championship trophy high while celebrating every precious moment with students and family. The scene came as a result of Highland toughing out a 46-34 win over Springville at the Huntsman Center in what proved an extremely well-earned win.
“It feels amazing. It’s an indescribable feeling,” said Highland forward Kaija Glasker. “We fought so hard to get here. We finally did it.”
Glasker led the Rams on Saturday, much like she did the entire year in helping settle down an otherwise very young team while taking the lead in scoring points and grabbing rebounds, along with just about everything else. The senior finished with a game-high 14 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in a performance that worked as a microcosm for what she’s done for the entire year.
Highland coach Kurt Schneider described an offseason in which Glasker really took charge leading up to a season which ultimately bore a championship.
“Somewhere over the summer and into the fall, Kaija just became a huge leader in every way,” Schneider said. “She didn’t have to be the center of things, but just worked so hard getting everyone involved, and just believing in and encouraging all of our younger players with everything. When I started to see that, that’s when I believe that, yeah, this team could be pretty good.”
Glasker’s teammates saw the same, and benefitted big from it. “She’s just showed us how to push through whatever adversity comes and just grind away,” said Highland freshman Sosefina Langi, who scored nine points and had seven rebounds in Saturday’s win. “She’s just a great leader who sincerely wants the best for all of us.”
Adversity came hard and often for Langi and her teammates throughout Saturday’s win. Not much of anything flowed on either side of the floor, with a somewhat desperate Red Devils team applying a lot of physical play, which was often matched by the Rams. The game featured 43 fouls called and 53 combined free throws taken in what could very well be described as a slugfest.
Glasker was on the brunt end of a lot of whistles, and had to battle through foul trouble throughout. “That was definitely frustrating, especially with this being my last high school game,” Glasker said. “I had to sit a lot of the time, so that was frustrating, but we pushed through it.”
The good news regarding Glasker’s foul trouble was Highland establishing a big 21-8 lead at the half, which gave way to a second half in which Springville only managed to cut the lead to no fewer than seven points. Glasker did her best through all of it, calming down her younger teammates during the tense moments which always accompany highly-physical contests.
“We couldn’t have done this without her,” Langi said. “I’m so grateful for her being there for me today, just like she’s always been.” Also showing big for the Rams was Bria Neeleman, who hit a big 3-pointer to end the first half and finished with seven points and four rebounds, along with Lei Makaui, who also scored seven.
As for Schneider, Saturday’s win was a big moment for him personally, although he was quick to reflect the moment on his players.
“We’ve definitely had our ups and downs since I became head coach here five years ago, so I’m just happy most of all for the girls who have put in the time to get this,” Schneider said. “But for me, as someone who has played and coached for many, many years without winning a championship, it really is special, and I’m just so blessed to have girls who believed in me. That’s the best part of all of this — to have a team that believed and then worked so hard to get what we did today.”

This was a Facebook post I thought would bring a smite!

Someone asked the other day, 'What was your favourite 'fast food' when you were growing up?'
'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up,' I informed him.
'All the food was slow.'
'C'mon, seriously.. Where did you eat?'
'It was a place called 'home,'' I explained. !
'Mum cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate, I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.'

By this time, the lad was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table.

But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I'd figured his system could have handled it:

Some parents NEVER owned their own house, wore jeans, set foot on a golf course, travelled out of the country or had a credit card.

My parents never drove me to school... I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed (slow).

We didn't have a television in our house until I was 10.
It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at 10 PM, after playing the national anthem and epilogue; it came back on the air at about 6 am. And there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people...

Pizzas were not delivered to our home... But milk was.

All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers --My brother delivered a newspaper, seven days a week.
He had to get up at 6 every morning.

Film stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the films. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or almost anything offensive.

If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with your children or grandchildren. Just don't blame me if they bust a gut laughing.

Growing up isn't what it used to be, is it?

MEMORIES from a friend:
My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old lemonade bottle.
In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea.
She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old.

How many do you remember?
Headlight dip-switches on the floor of the car.
Ignition switches on the dashboard.
Trouser leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.
Soldering irons you heated on a gas burner.
Using hand signals for cars without turn indicators.

Hi dear friends. I'm sad to make another obituary announcement. Lanett Williams Dial sent me a message that Kathy (Tim) Mead's niece had talked to her and told her that Kathy passed away last August from another stroke. She also said they found out she had a rare disease which was not curable. They will be having a memorial service the end of March and as soon as I get the details I will post them on the website. I attended grade school with Kathy and she was a very sweet, kind young girl when I knew her then. I didn't know her as well at Highland, but she was able to attend one of our monthly luncheon's with Lanett some time ago when her health was better, and it was so great to visit with her then! Kathy was a teacher and will be missed by many. RIP, our friend! xo
