Relationship Connection: My husband won’t let me help him with his medications 

Question My husband has some chemical imbalances from his childhood, it appears.  He was diagnosed as an adult with ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He then began exhibiting severe anxiety and would not sleep for days.  He also suffers from depression. He lost his previous marriage and eventually lost his law practice.

TWIR9: Region 9 wears the pants in the 3A baseball family 

COMMENTARY — Sometimes there’s a problem and absolutely nothing can be done about it. If you have a pair of pants and they’re too tight, you can drop a few pounds and make them fit better. But if they’re too short, what are you going to do, lose some height? And so it is with […]

On the EDge: We have but one planet, she is getting tired 

OPINION – There are a lot of things humans can do to sustain themselves. Replenishing our water supplies, however, is not among them. We can conserve it, we can ration it, but we can’t create it. It’s become more problematic as climate change impacts our ecosystems, resulting in a drought that has settled in over […]

Perspectives: Stories connect us to our heritage 

OPINION – Milestones in life aren’t always clearly marked. We don’t even realize we have passed some of them until they are already receding in the rear-view mirror. But some are unmistakable. When I got the word this past weekend that my mom’s uncle Jack Badger had passed away just short of his 99th birthday, it […]

On their minds was anti-discrimination legislation the senator sponsored and saw pass during Utah’s 2015 General Session. Why this? Why that? Was The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a director in the legislation? “What’s the deal, Senator?” […]

TWIR9: Why heckling the ump may not have the effect fans hope for 

COMMENTARY — We look pretty stupid when we do it. It rarely has any effect on the game. In fact, doing it can actually create the opposite result of what we want. And yet, we can’t help ourselves. After all, yelling at the umpire is the American way. I was at a softball game a couple […]

On the EDge: Utah continues war on same-sex marriage 

OPINION – Despite all the spin and backslapping Utah legislators are engaged in after their recent passage of a law that ensures housing and employment rights for the LGBT community, the state continues its hypocritical stance in the most important aspect of this issue: same-sex marriage. Utah was one of 15 states – the others […]

Perspectives: Pizza, bigotry, competing rights 

OPINION – There is a silver lining to the cloud of controversy that has arisen over various laws seeking to protect religious freedoms. The deception that’s been foisted on us is finally becoming clear. What was represented as a quest for inclusion and equality as little as 15 years ago has become an official pogrom […]
