On the EDge: NFL takes bold stride in supporting women 

OPINION – Over the last few years, my interest in the National Football League has waned considerably. Instead of fanatical interest, I’ve ratcheted back to the point of being a very casual fan. The NFL lost its charm. It became too corporate, too elitist, too in-your-face. I mean, when a guy like Alex Smith signs […]


Letter to the Editor: Who’s acting in best interest of child who perished in hot car? 

OPINION – SB0124 is a bill that amends the Utah Criminal Code, by making it a class C misdemeanor for a person who is responsible for a child under nine years of age to intentionally, recklessly, knowingly, or with criminal negligence – to leave a child unattended in an enclosed compartment of a motor vehicle. […]

Fall brings hay fever, other allergies; what to do about the ‘Achoo’ 

ST. GEORGE – Summertime is coming to a close and many Southern Utahns are looking forward to cooler weather and the return of shorter days, but for seasonal allergy sufferers thoughts of crisp juicy apples and days spent outside can be less inviting as they quickly bring itchy, watery eyes and wads of white tissues. But never fear, Dr. […]

Perspectives: Rediscovering our world through the eyes of our visitors 

OPINION – Crowds have never been my thing, which is why paying a visit to Zion National Park on the busiest day of the busiest weekend of the year was not my idea of how to spend a Saturday. Still, I was glad we went. Despite the endless lines of cars, the lack of parking spaces […]

Valor Hall: It’s about choice in education 

ST. GEORGE – As parents, the choices we make regarding our children begin at birth. Among the choices made are: hospital or home birth, breast or bottle feeding, store-bought or cloth diapers and processed or homemade baby food. These choices are scrutinized over and debated on “mommy blogs” around the world, and rightfully so. After all, […]


Perspectives: Southern Utah storyteller reaches milestone 

OPINION – For as long as radio has been a method of mass communication, it has never been a particularly stable career field for its on-air personalities. Turnover is quite high, even if it’s just the same people being shuffled around on different stations. In most radio markets, large and small, you can count on one […]


Blue Blood: Loving sights, sounds, smells of new football season 

COMMENTARY – Once again football season is finally here and the long college offseason comes to an end. This offseason in particular seemed a little longer to me and my football enthused family and friends. As fall fast approaches, junior football leagues are filling up local parks, high school football is underway, the NFL is almost […]


Relationship Connection: My husband humiliates me in public 

Question My husband and I have been married seventeen years. We’ve got an issue that keeps bothering me and I’m not sure I can tolerate it any longer. When my husband gets frustrated or angry, he takes it out on me. He speaks to me disrespectfully and, to my way of thinking, abusively. He yells […]


On the EDge: See you at the dollar stores 

OPINION – Forget the high-dollar, boutique stores that cater to upscale patrons, the real money is going elsewhere these days. Despite the trumped-up figures released regarding the economy and unemployment, people are still looking for more and better ways to stretch their dollars. That’s why Dollar General and Dollar Tree executives are going head-to-head in […]

College football has returned, and so have the Utes All predictions require a look at the roots There’s been too much turnover in Utah’s OC Not enough turnover in Washington DC COMMENTARY — I love this time of year!

Perspectives: Who has actually signed the social contract? 

OPINION – People who sell for a living are familiar with a tactic known as the assumptive close. An example of this is when the salesperson tells the prospective client, “Unless I hear otherwise from you, we’ll consider the deal done.” The seller acts as if the buyer has given consent where it has not been […]


Letter to the Editor: I seen it 

OPINION – Whenever there is an accident, crime, fire, shooting or other newsworthy event the TV reporter invariably chooses to interview the dimmest person present. And what do they say as soon as the microphone is thrust in their face? “I seen it, or I seen him, or I seen them, or, I seen her, I […]


Letter to the Editor: Foreign aid among best programs offered by US 

OPINION – The beneficial effects of the US Foreign Aid program are both underrated and misunderstood. Often times, citizens see foreign aid as a flawed program, or as a purely charitable one. While the efforts of foreign aid are noble and helpful to individuals in developing nations, the truth surrounding foreign aid is, while the program can […]
