Shuttle: Safe, reliable, navigates I-15 closures; new rates announced 

ST. GEORGE – When a remnant of Hurricane Norbert blasted through the region last week it closed down the highway and stranded untold numbers of people along the way. Roadways became impassable as the rains turned desert washes into rivers that even destroyed portions of Interstate 15 near Moapa, Nevada. Now imagine passing through that storm […]

Blue Blood: Still looking for the discipline as Cougs ready for Virginia 

COMMENTARY — The nation is starting to take notice of the 2014 BYU Cougars. BYU moved up again in the national polls this week after beating Houston 33-25. Now all of the national polls are taking a little more notice in what Coach Bronco Mendenhall’s program is doing in 2014. USA Today has BYU at […]

After the rain, termites swarm; they eat wood, food storage, more 

SOUTHERN UTAH – The pest control truck is parked at a neighbor’s house – they have a termite infestation. Bad luck for them, right? Not so fast. If one neighbor has a termite infestation, it is likely nearby homes have termites, too. “One termite colony can spread over a quarter of a mile,” Tyler Alldredge, […]

Relationship Connection: Have I been blind to the true nature of my marriage? 

Question Please! Help! My husband and I have lost our connection. It’s like having a roommate that I’m not even sure I like, but have sex with. We don’t talk about anything without it becoming a fuss. So we spend most of our time saying nothing, even if we are sitting in the same room. […]

Letter to the Editor: Unaffiliated candidate Bill Barron’s unusual campaign 

OPINION—There was a quiet revolutionary event in St George recently. Bill Barron, an unaffiliated candidate for Utah 2nd Congressional District seat in the US Congress, rode his bike into town, staging a small event at Confluence Park on a leg of his 600 mile one-week campaign through the district. “Unaffiliated” means he is not running […]

On the EDge: Where have all the role models gone? 

OPINION – Where have all the role models gone, or were there ever any? The National Football League finds itself neck-deep in bad public relations, or PR, and image as yet another pro football player ended up posing for a mugshot last week. Adrian Peterson, a star running back for the Minnesota Vikings, turned himself in […]

Perspectives: Only parents can legitimately say ‘because I said so’ 

OPINION – Any parent worth his or her salt has to pull rank on their child eventually. Typically this moment comes following a protracted disagreement about something the child is either being asked to do or to stop doing. When that child persists in wanting to know why they should comply, there comes a point when mom […]

Perspectives-space-between-Gov-and-People-expanding

Perspectives: The distance between you, your government is growing 

OPINION – Will Rogers is credited with an old saying to the effect of “If you’re thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering someone else’s dog around.” Behind the cowboy humor is a truth that applies in other areas of life where we think we have more influence than we actually do. One […]

Blue Blood: BYU ranked, but it’s way too early to talk about an undefeated season 

COMMENTARY — BYU (2-0) broke into the top 25 in all the national polls this week and is now getting the attention it has been asking for. What will the Cougars do with the new found national spotlight, and how long can this year’s team remain undefeated? It has been since back in 2008 when […]

TWIR9: Preseason done in football, 3AA South Region race begins 

COMMENTARY — I never liked the term preseason when applied to high school football. The NFL has a preseason and it is a joke. In the NBA, they call their preseason “exhibition” games. MLB has Spring Training. I guess I don’t like the term preseason because it implies to me that the outcome doesn’t matter. […]

Fine-tuning the ‘yummy machine’ through training, hands-on healing 

ST. GEORGE – “How do you want to be healed?” It may seem like an unconventional question coming from the healer but that is exactly what you will hear when you enter the doors of Total Balance Health Wellness and Training Center – a physical and emotional healing center combining elements of massage, stretching, education […]

Bleeding Red: Offense really clicking with Travis Wilson at QB 

Utah’s off to a promising start Finally the offense is rolling All I can hear is my beating heart Four more wins and Utah goes bowling COMMENTARY — Four more wins and the Utah Utes can go bowling. The fearsome Pac-12 slate is still on the horizon, so celebrating a shot at going to a […]

On the EDge: SUU smacks down Harry Reid 

OPINION – Southern Utah University has long proclaimed its motto: “Learning lives forever.” It’s a noble ideal, one that should take hold within those who believe that the process of growth and education should never end. Unfortunately, it seems, not much has been learned by the community SUU serves. A group of residents has politicized […]

Rowdy’s Range takes aim at stereotypes, offers memberships 

ST. GEORGE – Ready. Aim. Fire. With its indoor, air-conditioned range, a wide variety of guns and ammunition and several courses designed for shooters to hone their skills and target personal safety, the proprietors of Rowdy’s Range and Shooters Supply – a licensed firearms dealer – have set their sights on becoming a high caliber destination […]
