Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME really Frank. In lengthy scenarios he related comical and embarrassing situations in which local people were lead characters. "We have had a couple of days without wind," Toots wrote Suzy in one of the continuing chapters. "It sure seems good. People who don't live in West Millard don't know what they've missed when the wind really gets going. Take Fran Hawley down at Oasis: He was out putting manure on his fields there during the wind and he got 15 phone calls from Lynndyl saying they had plenty now, and would he please quit?" Ribbing his fellow deer-hunters behind the mask of Toots, he wrote one day, "Cluff Talbot relates that Grant Hardy shot a deer so far away that they gave up three horses getting to it. Grant says the deer was so far away that they were afraid they wouldn't get to it before the season closed and thus would be arrested for hunting out of season. Grant says that in order to just get the bullet there, he had to pull the trigger so hard it bent and he has permanently strained the rifle barrel." Such topics as the town's fire regulations, flooding of homes through careless irrigation practices, men searching in the night for an outboard motor lost overboard in a reservoir and the new "store bought" teeth of a society matron came into the spotlight through "Chatterbox" - always in less-than-complimentary terms. In one memorable edition, Toots chided: "You would think that when people reach a certain age they would quit playing with matches but not so Bee Welch. Last Sunday he was out in his outdoor reading room communing with nature and lighting matches. With the result that on leaving the place to take up his normal duties, the joint caught on fire. "The Delta Volunteer Fire Department was called and responded within a matter of minutes," the narrative continued, "but when they saw what was burning, they refused to even unroll a tiny hose. They figured it was time Bee and Mae got around to having indoor plumbing, especially should another cold winter come along." It's appropriate that Delta's longtime publishing family should have editorially guided the community through so 431
