March 20, 2020

The past few weeks have been quite interesting to say the least. As the coronavirus has moved across the globe it is evident how much our planet has become smaller and that we are all part of a larger global community. But like all important things the solution always starts local. As our community faces the challenges of dealing with the coronavirus we should take comfort in the coordinated and collaborative approach our community officials have taken to help Heber Valley residents. Many are working long hours each day to provide our valley with accurate and timely information. That leaves the rest of us to do our part. First, stay calm and positive. Our actions speak louder than our words. If we stay calm it is contagious (in the good way). Next, follow the recommendations of public health officials. Find the most accurate and update info for our community at

Finally, remember to support local businesses during this time. If you can purchase a gift card, make future reservations, or do a little early (or late) Christmas shopping as appropriate. Just remember we can come out of this better than we started if we choose to.

The Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce recognizes Timber Knives as the March 2020 Business of the Month. Timber Knives opened their store at 350 South Main Street in Heber last spring. They specialize in knives, axes, kitchen cutlery – anything with an edge. They also offer engraving and sharpening services.

Jim Roach, Owner of Timber Knives, is committed to being involved in Heber Valley. During the winter months Timber Knives partnered with their neighbor Northland Professionals for a community smore’s night, they offer forging classes, carving classes, knife skills, and look forward to planning a community hike this summer. 

Jim has a strong connection to the valley as he spent many summers here as a child playing in the canals, fishing with his grandparents and horseback riding at the Homestead Resort.

Heber City park named for local Marine killed in Iwo Jima

Seventy-five years ago, two Utah brothers, both Marines, landed on the beach at Iwo Jima and decided to split up to lessen the chances of their mother losing two sons in the battle.

Pvt. Kay “Pete” Murdock Jones, 18, perished along with nearly 7,000 other Marines on that island, while his older brother Pfc. James Richard “Dick” Jones survived and returned home to Heber City to tell his story.
