WILDERNESS PERILS: MOSTLY MUNDANE
University of California at San Diego researchers, in a report “Morbidity and Mortality in the Wilderness,” found in the Western Journal
of Medicine, analyzed Northwestern State park data for visitors from 1993- 95. They found most injuries in the wild are caused by
common activities such as hiking, walking, skiing and driving, and most deaths are attributable to cardiac disease. For example, they
found substance abuse and fighting accounted for three times as many injuries as rock climbing. And heart problems as a cause of death
led the list by a wide margin, far ahead of drowning, falling, plane crashes, gunshots, asthma, avalanches, shark attacks, volcanic
fumes, swimming over waterfalls and hypothermia.

ANASAZI COORDINATES GOLF TOURNAMENT
Sterling Tanner and Sheron Fitch, 602-892-7403, are contacts for the new plans for Anasazi’s golf tournaments. Their on-going successful
annual February Steve Young Classic will be renamed the Steve Young Desert Classic, named after San Francisco 49er quarterback Steve
Young. Young has asked Anasazi to also coordinate his annual Utah charity golf tournament, which will be renamed the Steve Young Mountain
Classic held on June 19th at Thanksgiving Point, in Lehi, Utah. Ezekiel C. Sanchez, co-founder of Anasazi, anticipates this will be
very helpful in Anasazi’s goal of doubling their scholarship fund to $600,000 in 1998.
Anasazi is initiating a series of monthly youth and parent fireside discussions/presentations. There is no charge, and all interested
are welcome. Lasting 1-½ hours, they will be held in Mesa, Arizona on the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Anasazi office, and the
1st Friday of each month at Lehi, Utah, at Thanksgiving Point, beginning July 3, 1998. For more information, call 602-892-7403. SHAMROCK
