DRAPER, Utah -- Draper Fire Battalion Chief Matt Burchett died 800 miles from home, in the mountains of Northern California.

Now, he's remembered as a friend, colleague, mentor, father, and husband on the Wasatch Front, and as a hero in the shadow of California's high Sierras.

"Indivisible," said California State Assemblyman Ken Cooley, when asked what word came to mind as he attended Burchett's funeral in West Valley City, Utah.

"On a day like today we are reminded of that great word in the pledge of allegiance that we never use until we say the pledge, and that's 'indivisible,'" Cooley said.

Cooley, the chair of the Rules Committee in the California State Assembly was on hand representing California Governor Jerry Brown. He delivered a letter and a California Flag from Brown.

Hundreds of people descended on Herald last Saturday, filling the streets, park and nearby property as friends and neighbors gathered to celebrate the annual Herald Day event and celebrate with event honorees Ron and Judy Jacobson. The couple was given mementos of the event by Herald Community Club event organizers, and Sacramento County Supervisor Don Nottoli was on hand to honor the couple as well.

The event began with a festive parade filled with classic cars, antique tractors, floats, horses and a genie in a magic lamp.

The Manly Mower Men were back with more shenanigans. A very “manly” genie popped out of the newly constructed magic lamp, complete with different colored smoke to highlight the event. The Manly Mower Men ended the parade with a lively dance inviting all to come and join them.
