Veterans Aware: Vets’ thoughts on the holidays 

OPINION — I’ve been told that people don’t understand the way veterans are about the Holidays so I pressed the vets and ended up with “’capitalism’ has hijacked the holidays; they’re all about the money!”  This was the overwhelmingly favorite response. The second and subsequent responses held the information I wanted to get from the veterans; “It’s […]

Question I have been married to my new husband for three months, even though we’ve dated each other for the past five years. His first wife and myself get along pretty well. My husband and she share custody of their 11-year-old daughter. Ever since the first day I met her five years ago, she has always […]


On the EDge: Council’s proposed solar charges are preposterous 

OPINION – It’s getting easier to be green. Finally, after years of research and development, outfitting your home with solar power is well within reach of the average household. The benefits, of course, are plenty, from not only an environmental but financial standpoint. But, the St. George City Council is looking to cut those benefits. […]

Perspectives: It’s the unnecessary laws, stupid 

OPINION – George H.W. Bush should have been a shoo-in for the 1992 presidential campaign. But Bill Clinton and his strategists vaulted past the incumbent war hero who had just presided over Operation Desert Storm by directing the voters’ attention to the faltering U.S. economy. Their blunt, albeit effective slogan: “It’s the economy, stupid.” Diplomacy […]

No Filter: Behind the walls of Warren Jeffs’ would-be compound 

HILDALE – Getting into the former intended compound of Warren Jeffs, the now infamous and imprisoned prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in Hildale proved not as confounding as Paul Ford and Grady Sinclair might have expected. In fact, they were invited in to wander and lounge about and […]


On the EDge: Will protests open doors to discussion? 

OPINION – In 1968, Olympians John Carlos and Tommie Smith stood on the winner’s platform, awaiting the playing of the national anthem. They had just sprinted to gold and bronze in Mexico City. It was the culmination of years of intense training with little, if any, reward. As the first notes of the anthem played, […]


Perspectives: Give gifts that promote preparedness 

OPINION – Now that Black Friday’s mindless binge shopping has come and gone, it’s a good time to put some thought into Christmas gifts that require a little deeper contemplation. As a person who long ago discovered the peace of mind and practicality of personal preparedness, I love to give gifts that promote a self-sufficient […]

A-List: DiPietro’s European Bistro 

OPINION – There’s a new restaurant in town. And it’s straight out of a fairytale. DiPietro’s, tucked away in Santa Clara, serves authentic European cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The location itself is enchanting. It’s especially pretty after dark, when the twinkling lights illuminate the diminutive bistro, causing it to effortlessly achieve a romantic and cheerful ambience. The […]


Opinion: Little progress in US race relations 

OPINION — Based on the aftermath of two recent grand jury decisions, in St. Louis County, Missouri, Nov. 24 and Staten Island, New York, Wednesday, in which indictments were not issued against white police officers in the deaths of black suspects during law enforcement confrontations, it is clear we have made very little progress in race relations since the horrible events in the Watts […]
