Through several meetings

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.

not the “chairman” and that

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

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.

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.

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.

C. Cuch best wishes on her
birthday and we wanted to
include this special message on behalf of the family.

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.

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!
