Through several meetings with the Business Committee, various Departments which work directly with water issues and Community meetings; Ute Tribe Water Commission has developed a water code. The Ute Tribe’s water rights are the oldest in the State and much has been done to maintain the water rights that where established. The laws and agreements are complicated and several times a Water Compact has been brought before the membership. Shaun Chapoose, whom directly stated that he was not the “chairman” and that the Water Commission felt that they worked stronger under their current working order and where confident in their director Mr. Moss, who with his legal skills brought the code for review by the membership on January 8th, 2015. Following a prayer provided by Emmitt Duncan Sr. the meeting began with Mr. Chapoose explaining that the needing the memberships’ input. Several tribal members spoke: Leroy Topanotes Jr., Ernest Chapoose Sr., Edred Secacuku, Irene Cuch where a few of the elders who spoke. Lunch was provided. The afternoon session Duane Moss, Director helped clarify the code, going through section by section up until about 3. Due to people leaving, as the day wore on the meeting was stopped so that the next membership meeting so all who were interested could listen. Water Engineer Woold was to speak on “storage” projects. Feel free to visit the Ute Tribe Water Commission and Department for a copy of the code and bring your questions. Look for future meeting dates and your input is vital to our future. MC-UB The Water Commission would like to recognize late Raymond Murray for his many years of working with water for the Tribe and his recent input in helping develop the water code and Compact. He has been on the Water Commission from its start in 2010 and his input has been invaluable. Take notice that the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 8 (U.S. EPA) is extending by fifteen (15) days the public comment period on U.S. EPA’s proposed action to issue a Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) correction permit No. PSD-UO-000004-2014-003, that regulates air pollution emissions from the following source located within the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation, Uintah County, Utah: Deseret Power Electric Cooperative Bonanza Power Plant 12500 East 25500 South Vernal, UT 84078 The original comment period, announced by an earlier public notice, began on December 5, 2014 and was set to expire on January 19, 2015. The public comment period will now expire on February 3, 2015. The U.S. EPA is authorized to issue Clean Air Act The Tribal Business Committee projects progress in vital areas including Tribal jurisdiction and Tribal water for the year 2015 and a hope for an economic recovery in the oil markets. First and foremost, of course the Tribe is not immune from the world wide decline in the oil market. As a Tribe that is largely dependent upon the oil and gas revenue for our budget and the fact that the nation’s current outlooks indicate that prices will not be as high as the Tribe enjoyed during the 2014 year. It is uncertain how this will exactly affect the Tribe; however it appears there will be great benefits for you as a consumer at the gas pump. Specifically, one year ago the price per/barrel was near $110, while recently on January 12, 2015 according to the Chevron Crude Oil Marketing the oil that is drilled within the Uintah and Ouray Reservations is trading at $29.07 and $28.07 respectively. Early projections are as much as a 40% drop in oil (CAA) PSD permits in Indian country where EPA has not approved a tribe to implement the PSD permit program. The Bonanza Power Plant is located in Indian country within the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation. Under the requirements of 40 CFR 52.21, sources are required to obtain a Federal PSD permit to construct a new major stationary source as well as a major modification of an existing major stationary source. The Deseret Bonanza Power Plant is a major stationary source. The purpose of the proposed permit action is to correct errors in the Federal PSD permit issued on February 2, 2001. U.S. EPA proposes to determine that a project constructed by Deseret Power in June of 2000, known as Bart Stevens the ruggedized rotor project, was a major modification for nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, and therefore, is subject to PSD permitting for NOx. The Statement of BIA Superintendant Stevens See EPA Page 3 Tribal members enjoyed New Years Round Dance held at Uintah River High School Jan. 9, 10, 2015. See Round Dance Page 7 Bart Stevens, Superintendant Uintah & Ouray Bureau of Indian Affairs began 2015 by meeting with the Business Committee and holding staff meetings. Stevens, who was raised here on the reservation, had been over all the schools in the western states while he was an employee for BIA in Albuquerque. He has worked in Education throughout most of his life and had even been a JOM tutor and a Principal. Stevens was very eager and hopeful that his tenure and dedication as Superintendant would also be for the benefit of the tribe. MC-UB revenue this year compared to 2014. The Tribal Business Committee has addressed this issue this past year through implementing Resolutions No. 14-015 and 14-299, both have allocated funded in a diversification account through Morgan Stanley, LLC of the Tribe’s Section 506 funds. The active Financial Plan Ordinance, 06-005 and 13003 includes ensuring investments beyond placing all–the eggs within one basket. The Tribe has experienced an outstanding investment year and hopes to build off that success into 2015. The Tribe ushers in the new year on the jurisdiction law suit against the state of Utah, et. al., on January 21st. At this juncture the legal issues are going through interlocutory appeal process before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth (10th) Circuit, located in Denver. The specifics issues that will be addressed at this next hearing are the counterclaims filed by Uintah co. and state of Utah. These claims were appealed at the District Court level (Salt Lake City) because of the sovereign immunity defense. The Tribe foresees significant progress throughout 2015 on these issues to obtain a ruling that is consistent with case law and affirming Tribal sovereignty. Lastly the Tribe aims to further negotiate the water compact agreement to include economic development opportunities for the Tribal body. This will be a concerted effort through the Tribal Business Committee, however the membership is encouraged to participate with the Tribal Water Commission to become educated on the issues and express concerns with the eventual Tribal Water code. We wish the membership the best throughout the 2015 year. UTE INDIAN TRIBE Business Committee Quarterly Meeting February 4, 2015 Tribal Auditorium 10 AM Lunch will be served.

Artist Orientation for Arts Teens Program Crescent Point Energy Notice U G L Y S W E AT E R CONTEST News From Ute Country Ute Bulletin Page 4 EDUCATION UPDATE Dear Parents and Guardians, New Years Celebrations All Over The World By Vincent Quinn Different cultures have different ways to celebrate the New Year. In China, children dress in new clothes. People with lanterns join a parade behind a huge dragon. According to tradition, there is a 12 year cycle and each year is named after a different animal. Each animal has different strengths and different weaknesses. They believe that whatever year you’re born in, you have the strengths and weaknesses of the animal you share the year with. The order goes: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. In September or October, Jews celebrate a 10 day holiday to bring in their new year. It starts with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and ends with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). In Thailand, from April 13-15 people celebrate Songkran, the Buddhist New Year. People tie strings around each other’s wrists to show respect for each other, and they don’t take them off until they fall off on their own. In different periods of time different cultures have started the new year at different times of the year. For example ancient Greeks began their new year shortly after June 21. Before Julius Caesar the Romans started their new year on March 1st. In many European countries, the new year started March 25th during the middle ages. Regardless of when the New Year is, it’s a good time to set new goals and see how your goals for the old year did. We need your help. Most of us look forward to the beginning of a new year. With a new year many people commit to new or renewed goals and aspirations. Our Education Department would like to renew our shared goal of school attendance and ask for your assistance in ensuring that children come to school and come to school on time. We need your help to accomplish this goal during 2015! 1) Be sure that your child attends 93% of the school year, that means your child can't miss more than 12 days of school. 2) Be sure that your child is on time at his/her school. 3) Be sure that you don't take your child out before the school day is over. 4) Be sure that you don't take your child out on "long weekends." Our school sometimes experience higher absences on Mondays and Fridays. 5) Be sure that you call the school if your child is to be absent from his/her school, especially if your child is sick or out with a family emergency. Attendance to school is extremely important and highly related to your child school performance. Make sure your child has the opportunity to learn by being in school. Our Education Department greatly appreciates your support of your child's education. Improving our children's attendance is of tremendous importance Please, feel free to contact us if you have questions and thank you very much for reading this letter.

Kelvyn Hardy Valedictorian, Bailey Zufelt The Painted Horse Diabetes Prevention Program Cooking Club January 16, 2015 January 16, 2015 New Year and Resilience By Beau Washington, Psy.D. It’s the start of a new year. A lot of people make New Year’s resolutions like: lose weight, stop smoking, exercise more, save money, and perhaps find Big Foot. You can add your own to this list. Sometimes our resolutions work and often they don’t. I stopped making New Year’s resolutions years ago because I seemed to forget about them quickly and all my good intentions faded away. However, years ago I made a non-New Year’s resolution to understand resilience. Resilience is the ability to spring back, that is, when trouble knocks you down you get right back up, ready for whatever comes your way. Resilient people enjoy life. I am happy to say I kept that resolution and that is why I write this column. Some people are great at being resilient and others struggle. Resiliency is not just a matter of surviving. Instead, it is flourishing, making the best of life even through the hard times. Here’s where the sly Tricksters come in to make us weak. Trickster Thoughts like to push us over the edge and tell us that something is going to be a problem when in fact, it might not be. Tricksters want to get the best of us, so their little lies are close to being true, but they are not true. They trick us into believing the worst. Even though everybody has Trickster Thoughts, resilient people recognize them and chase them away when they come up. It is easier to catch the Tricksters if you know who they are. One sly offender is “Jumps to Conclusions.” Jumps will tell you things like: “We are going to lose the game.” when it is only half time; or “He is mad at me.” when in fact, the other person is crabby about something else that had nothing to do with you; or “She didn’t News From Ute Country text me back. I must have said something wrong.” when she might have been taking a nap or her car battery died. “Knows the Future” Trickster actually pretends to tell the future and causes problems. Knows the Future will say things like: “They won’t hire you...so why try?” or “Don’t attend the party—you may see that person you don’t like.” and you miss all the fun; or “I know my boss is going to fire me.” but it doesn’t happen. The problem with believing Knows the Future is that you are mentally paying for a problem (stressing) before it happens. Most of the time believing what Knows says only keeps us from enjoying the day. Knows is often wrong. Don’t let Knows the Future win. The best answer to his messages is, “I don’t know what will happen.” It is better to acknowledge that you don’t know rather than guessing wrong and mentally paying for something that does not happen. There is plenty of time to cry about your situation after it happens, so don’t cry until it is time. “Name Calling” Trickster wants to make us feel like losers. Name Calling will jump on us when we make a mistake. If you knock something over, Name Calling may say, “I am so clumsy.” when you haven’t knocked anything over in years, so most of the time you are not clumsy. Or he will say, “I am stupid.” If you are reading this, you are not stupid. Tell the Trickster I said so. Here is the deadly one: “I am a loser.” Most of the time most things go right rather than wrong. The problem is when we believe the Trickster. Yup, they have you believing things that are not true and you will feel like a loser. Oh, those sly, lying Tricksters. Resilience is refusing to go under to the Tricksters’ lies. Instead we spring back by seeing what is true and accurate. Everybody gets Tricksters Thoughts. The key is to recognize them and chase them away by looking for what is true. I hope you will think about learning the Trickster Thoughts as your New Year’s resolution. When you start to see the Trickster Thoughts for what they are, you will find that your resilience will increase. We owe it to our ancestors to flourish, and we can.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY “Hammers” I hope we can be stin-gee with you our whole lives. For fear that anyone else will get to see what a treasure you are. All the funny things you say and do keep us laughing & smiling, and we look forward to all the days we get to have you. You are so helpful, caring, loving, and sweet. You have spunk, wit, courage, strength, and a fearless rambunctious outlook. It is exciting to watch you grow but I get sad knowing my baby isn’t so tiny anymore. I am thankful you chose us to be your family when you were in heaven. In the words of our favorite story by: Robert Munsch, we are right here… “The little boy grew. Happy 19th Birthday “Samuel E Willie” News From Ute Country There are Angles God puts on this Earth Who care for us and guide us. You can feel their love and gentleness as they walk through life besides us. They do great things for us every day they whisper in our ears, they even hold us in their hearts when we are filled with all our fears. They are always there to give a hug and try to make us smile. They treat us with respect and love, they treat us like their child. God blessed me with an Angel, I’m proud to call my own. She’s been with me throughout my life, been with as I’ve grown. She guided me the best she can, she’s taught me like no other, and I’m thankful I’m the lucky one who get’s to call her... Mother He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was nine years old. And he never wanted to come in for dinner, he never wanted to take a bath, and when grandma visited he always said bad words. Sometimes his mother wanted to sell him to the zoo! But at night time, when he was asleep, the mother quietly opened the door to his room, crawled across the floor and looked up over the side of the bed. If he was really asleep, she picked up that nine-year-old boy and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she rocked him she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be.” I love you son! Happy Birthday!
