Matheson bill to improve emergency care for children passes U.S. House of Representatives

Congressman Jim Matheson's legislation to continue a unique federal program credited with saving children's lives by improving emergency medical services passed overwhelmingly in the United States House of Representatives on Tuesday.

Matheson's bill re-authorizes the federal emergency medical services for children program.

Also called the "Wakefield Act," the federal legislation allows the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services to make grants to states or schools of medicine to support projects to expand and improve emergency medical services for children needing trauma or critical care, pointed out the Utah congressman in a press release issued following the vote.

Carbon County lawmakers clarify statements stemming from April 4 commission meeting

In a press release signed by all three county commissioners and delivered to the Sun Advocate office on April 9, Carbon officials clarified an issue involving the North Springs shooting range.

At the time of the April 4 meeting, the commissioners indicated they were not aware that Castle Gate Posse has scheduled a major shooting event with more than 100 registered participants from eight western states on May 16 and May 17.

The event was properly scheduled with the North Springs Shooting and Recreation area management in June 2007.

The commission confirms that the reservation made by the CVP for the May event will be honored as scheduled.

Masters Pro Am tournament competition to take place this weekend at county course

The Carbon golf course is encouraging all interested parties to pair up with favorite professionals at the Masters Pro Am tournament.

According to the staff at the golf course, all local players need to do is finish 18 holes before 2 p.m. and then choose one of the top 10 players going into Sunday's final round of the Masters.

"Then sit back and watch the tournament unfold," said course pro Tom King Jr. "Your net score for the day and their final score determine your team score for the tournament."

For cost information, local golfers may contact the Carbon Pro Shop at 435.637-2388.
