No Filter: Lone castle over Bloomington 

ST. GEORGE – Where there is a castle, there must be treasure, right? So thought the co-hosts of the “No Filter Show” as they mused over the solitary octagonal pink edifice that stands at the end point on the bluff between the Tonaquint region of St. George to the north and the Bloomington subdivision to the south.

TWIR9: Learning life’s lessons from not making the team 

COMMENTARY — Recently one of my daughters was cut from a basketball team. What team doesn’t matter, nor does it matter what coach did the cutting. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that life is full of cuts. I was cut from the basketball team in high school. I was “uninvited” from practicing with […]

On the EDge: What we can learn from that little black and blue, or was it gold and white, dress 

OPINION – The most pressing question of the day isn’t whether the Utah Legislature will legalize medicinal cannabis (I would be pleasantly surprised if it does), nor is it whether the Republican-controlled Congress will shut down the Department of Homeland Security (they are just petty enough to do it.) No, the most pressing question of […]

Bleeding Red: 2015 Runnin’ Utes are eerily similar to Van Horn-led ’97 team 

There’s something familiar about the Utes Like a team for which I once used to root As Yogi Berra supposedly said It’s like déjà vu all over again COMMENTARY — The Runnin’ Utes have a star player who is receiving a lot of national attention, and is a finalist for many of the major individual […]

Perspectives: Group rights, abolishing personal conscience 

OPINION – Not so long ago, it was common to think of our rights in terms of individual human rights. With the spread of identity politics and political correctness, we are reaching a point where we’re allowed to only consider group rights. Collective rights artificially divide us into squabbling tribes pitted against one another in a […]

Relationship Connection: My mother is self-centered 

Question My mother is the absolute center of everything in the family and has been ever since I can remember. Self-centered doesn’t begin to cover it. If she has a nail appointment over her granddaughter’s soccer game, it’s not even a question – she’s getting her nails done. If her face doesn’t look perfect in […]

On the EDge: Where’s Uncle Walter when we need him most? 

OPINION – The latest round of Media Gotcha has placed Fox News guy Bill O’Reilly in the crosshairs. Funny, but I remember when the name of the game was reporting the news, not making it. It was bound to happen, you know, that a broadcaster from the right side of the aisle was thrust under […]

Perspectives: About those calls for war with ISIS 

OPINION – Someone is itching for war. As easy as it would be to lay the blame at the feet of barbaric Middle Eastern thugs hiding behind religion, the real war lust is originating a lot closer to home. Each time the latest horrifying, perfectly produced snuff video is released, American politicians and war hawks […]

Blue Blood: Cougars back on NCAA bubble, but need a signature win to get in 

COMMENTARY — A month ago, college basketball writers around the West were penning BYU’s epitaph, calling the Cougars underachievers and declaring that they’d be lucky just to get into the NIT. The writing, they declared, was on the wall. It’s easy to see why many hoops pundits felt that way. In mid-January, BYU lost back-to-back […]
