    How do I submit an obituary?

    please update the obituaries section on your site. The Spectrum will lose more customers and you will gain a greater viewership on your website. Obits are a VERY popular part of print & online media. And please keep it accurate & up to date & let’s put The Spectrum out of business

    • Joyce Kuzmanic
      Joyce Kuzmanic December 3, 2013 at 6:14 am ·

      We’re working on making our invitation more known, Becky.

      For those reading, we welcome obituary submissions free of charge.
      If you have one you’d like published, please submit to – include any photos you’d like included and your contact information. Thank you for your support and interest.

      Terrible horrible small minded person to want to “put the Spectrum out of business”. I think you should be put out to pasture. You are creepy.

    Hi There,

    I would like to inquire about the process of adding a Business to your list. I’m interested of listing our Firm. Do you offer free listing?

    Thank you,

    I’ve lived in ten different states over my lifetime and no community I’ve lived in does a better job of recycling than St George.
    However, I wish the guidelines were spelled out better, as to exactly what is needed to be placed in those yellow receptacle pods. I’m particularly unsure about what constitutes cardboard and if (i.e.) cereal boxes are wanted or not.
    How about an article detailing what we can do to make the recycling effort even more productive.
    Thank you!

  6. Petlover February 15, 2014 at 9:33 am ·

    Congratulations on the new webpage. I really like the new design and overall polished format. Much better than the old one, so well done. I do have a request for your new website: How about you guys adding a section solely for lost/found pets or just pets in general? I think with the amount of dogs and cats that get lost, there is a need for a section about them Thanks and great job guys.

    • Joyce Kuzmanic
      Joyce Kuzmanic February 15, 2014 at 12:52 pm ·

      Glad you noticed, Petlover. Our web wizards have been working pretty hard on this for quite some time. We do have additional sections in the works, one rollout at a time as we make sure our changes are running smoothly. I will pass your suggestion along, but in the meantime, we do have a Lost and Found Pets photo album on our Facebook page that we add to when we receive creature-related submissions. :)

    • Bretticus February 21, 2014 at 10:33 am ·

      There is a current trend in web design (thanks Apple) for favoring a flat design over skeuomorphism. Windows 8 tried to incorporate this design trend (and failed I might add.) The idea is that sometimes trying to make buttons, etc mirror the object that it represents can be overkill. Instead the flat design philosophy is to make the design more readible. Personally, I didn’t care for this anti-skeuomorphism in the beginning (it’s been going on for several years) but I’m used to it now and it’s a trend that’s going to be here awhile (like it or not.)

      • Bender March 2, 2014 at 5:12 pm ·

        Your new WP theme has a few glitches… Comments are sometimes missing a line break, the short ones flow into the next comment. Also, not a fan of using CSS .uppercase on the commenter names. Would prefer to see paragraph CSS line-height cranked down a bit to put more verbiage on each screen (especially important for rendering on mobile devices where the new styling really spreads out and wastes precious mobile screen real estate). Finally, the “More Articles” button on the main page is frustrating because the page it takes you to has, mostly, the same article summaries as the main page. Either have true pagination where it takes you to a true second page of article summaries or crank up the number of articles on an archive page to 50.

        • Joyce Kuzmanic
          Joyce Kuzmanic March 2, 2014 at 6:42 pm ·

          Thanks Bender. I am passing on to the wizards. I have the same thought on “More Articles” – keep ‘em coming.

  11. swimswim February 21, 2014 at 11:07 pm ·

    I just wanted to say thank you! Thanks for doing your best to quickly report the latest news in southern Utah. You’re a much needed breath of fresh air. I know you get a lot of slack and criticism in some of your comment sections, but I feel like you’re doing your best and making corrections quickly when needed. So once again, THANK YOU!!!

    We have a second home in St. G which we visit regularly. We also visit the local eateries. This is the first time we’ve looked at your website so we naturally checked out the dining info. Just a bit of maintenance we might suggest from our limited exposure – these are no longer in business: The Haven, JB’s, Panama Grill, Ruby Tuesday’s, Samurai 21, and the Claim Jumper. Marv’s has a new address on Bluff. The website link on George’s Corner takes you to home improvement choices, not food. Also no matter which restaurant you click on we keep getting the same 3 reviews about the Anasazi and Alvaro’s. Thanks for your efforts to provide the “What’s happening in St. George”!! It’s nice to check on things when we’re not there.

    • Joyce Kuzmanic
      Joyce Kuzmanic March 2, 2014 at 3:15 pm ·

      Thank you Aurora, those are due for an update.

  13. GG March 10, 2014 at 7:54 am ·

    Just a suggestion – on your movie link how about doing the listing by movie rather than theater? I look for the movie I want to see, now necessarily the theater closest to my home. Keep up the good work. I’m glad to have an alternate local news source since we don’t care to subscribe to the Spectrum. Please keep it current and accurate. I hope someday you’ll have a TV station for local news. Seems like the only thing we can get from Salt Lake is the weather.

    • Joyce Kuzmanic
      Joyce Kuzmanic March 10, 2014 at 8:33 am ·

      I will pass your suggestion on to the wizards, GG, I’m not sure if the feed would allow that or not. Thank you for your interest and encouragement, we intend to keep building and building and building … :D

    The new design is fine, but the font is almost unreadable.

  16. anonymous March 19, 2014 at 2:32 am ·

    First, comment section under the booking Pictures?
    Second, BEGAY, KENNETH COREY why is he so beat up in his booking picture? This is excessive beating, or someone has committed an assault against this person.
    third, why no matches at stores that sell cigs,frantic smokers reaching for lighters, no extra matches provided anymore? Class action law suit.

    After subscribing to our local print paper for ten years, and having recently discovered St George News, I now have an alternative for accurate, comprehensive and fast local news that our print paper seems unable to replicate.

    Just wondered if you have an update on the driver of the small pickup involved in the accident right in from on Winchester Hills a few days ago. He was taken to the hospital by chopper, but haven’t heard anything else about his injuries or condition. I live in Winchester. Thanks

    I was watching the World Cup yesterday and they were doing a piece on the Bosnia team. Apparently, there was some very destructive flooding that happened earlier this year/month? I don’t remember seeing anything about this on the news (but I tend not to watch the news all that carefully), but I was wondering if maybe one of your staff could do a bit of research and put together a story on this as well as include some charities to which people can donate to help the victims?

    • Joyce Kuzmanic
      Joyce Kuzmanic June 16, 2014 at 10:28 am ·

      What kindness, Rachel – we’ll keep our ears open, and if we hear of any charity efforts directed that way we’ll be glad to publish on it.

    Can you please do a story on the human trafficking case that just went through the Washington County court system? A 31-year-old was prostituting a 17-year-old and forcing her to have sex with men that were paying him, on threat of abuse to the teenage girl. This criminal, who was found guilty, was given PROBATION. Not jail time, probation. The first human trafficking case in Utah, one second-degree felony conviction, two third-degree felony convictions, and he gets probation?? As a female private citizen, I am offended to my core about this, and would love to see what you could uncover.

  27. swimswim August 8, 2014 at 11:33 am ·

    I am shocked at the negative, degrading, judge-mental comments that have been progressively worse lately. I think there are some people who just sit and wait for articles to come out, just so they can pounce on them. I think commentary should be unavailable for quite awhile, until these people who comment frequently and rudely find something else to do with their time. I know they are a small percentage of the wonderful area that we live in, but when that is all the comments you read – you begin to wonder if it really is a small percentage? We can do better Southern Utah!!!!

    I commented on the story about the floods in Washington city and put a link for people to donate to the Carnavale family who lost their home. You keep deleting my link and comment. Please explain the reason so that I may modify my comment to meet your criteria. I thought freedom of speech was a protected right in America. My comment was not vicious or inflammatory, what have I done wrong? I did send an email previously soliciting your help with information about donating to the fund created to help the Carnavale family. I received no response. I need to hear from you so that I know what action to take next. I thought St. George news was created to elicit a feeling of support and unity within our community. This is very confusing!

    • DWright August 21, 2014 at 10:02 am ·

      St. George News:
      Thank you for your quick, timely, and professional reply to my inquiry. I appreciate you resolving this matter as quickly and effectively as you did. I’m still a fan and a follower. Thanks again!

  30. Allie August 25, 2014 at 3:04 pm ·

    Could the JOBS be listed with the most recent first? What a waste of time to be searching thru job listings that have already been seen. I have tried to search “1 day ago”, but that must not be included in the text to search. I am sure each listing has a date/time stamp that can be used to order the list. Even I know that much about HTML and/or Dreamweaver.

    • OLWM IT Staff August 25, 2014 at 4:19 pm ·

      That’s a great suggestion! Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We’ve updated the jobs page, so that it shows the most recent jobs first. However, just for your information, if you enter a search term, your results will continue to be sorted by relevance rather than by date. Thank you again for your suggestion. I hope you and others find the jobs page more useful with this change.

  31. Allie August 26, 2014 at 12:23 pm ·

    Thank you for addressing this so quickly. Glad to see that you read COMMENTS in a timely manner.

  32. Susan September 9, 2014 at 12:34 am ·

    Thanks to Aspen Stoddard for the very nice article about Wild West Days in Leeds. We have a special community that works hard together to enshrine and build on that fragile heritage of America uniquely felt in a small town. I felt Ms. Stoddard’s article reflected an appreciation for this, and hope she felt it personally.

  34. philiplo September 23, 2014 at 9:02 am ·

    In early July, Kimberly Scott wrote about the extension of Mall Drive and construction of the new bridge. That article states that the road is expected to open in “the second week of September.” It is now the fourth (fifth?) week of September and the roadway is not yet open, so apparently her sources underestimated the work to be done. Perhaps a follow-up story?

    Vote by mail ballots hit the mailboxes this week and early voting is less than two weeks away, but there has been little or no coverage of local candidates in the St. George News. In the past, I thought each candidate had been interviewed or completed a questionnaire with the results published.

    I encourage you to begin candidate coverage ASAP and yes, I do have a vested interest in this request; but I believe many others do too.

    Additionally, as the SL Trib has made itss endorsements of candidates, is the St. George News considering endorsing anyone for local offices?

    Thanks for your attention to this matter and I look forward to hearing from you.

  40. Kellie December 21, 2014 at 12:56 pm ·

    I love your website and that we can get on and read all the news free unlike the spectrum. The only thing is, why do you not have an incidents section? There’s a couple of incidents I wanted to read about but I can’t. :(

    • Joyce Kuzmanic
      Joyce Kuzmanic December 22, 2014 at 5:52 am ·

      Kellie, if you know a key word or two, you can use the search function. You can also scroll stories by date from the home page – at the bottom of recent stories is a button “More Stories” that will take you farther and farther back. I hope that helps, if not – tell me what you’re looking for and I’ll see if I can pull up the link for you. :)

    I wanted to say great job on the new login , but I see it still allows trolls to login under any name and just start bashing away on any post. If these individuals had to post using their real name they would stop. But as long as they can hide behind a keyboard under some made up persona they will continue to plague the the pages of your news. If your willing to be known for this it is your business. But if you want this publication to be taken seriously you need to take steps to change it. Many think your page is a joke because of all the hate filled insulting comments already. I read this everyday and for the most part find it very informative. I would like to keep reading it but if some idiot just wants to insult me every time I comment. It is unlikely I will. Do not get me wrong I am all for debate we all have different opinions and I want to hear them. But mindless insluts and name calling have no place here.

  42. anybody home March 2, 2015 at 4:28 pm ·

    I’ve decided to quit reading this paper because the trolls are out of control here. When every story has a “should of took a cab” comment, that’s just a waste of this reader’s time. Sorry.
