Logan's annual Summerfest begins at noon Thursday at the downtown historic tabernacle. UPR's Brianna Bodily brings us a preview of what we will see from one Cache Valley artist whose works incorporate quilting, painting, and photography.
Lucy Peterson Watkins is this year's featured artist, who describes her unique work to UPR this way:
Listen to Storee Powell's full interview with Donna McAleer, 1st District Congressional Candidate. McAleer will debate Ryan Combe in Logan on June 14 in anticipation of the Democratic Primary on June 26.
A complaint from a European tourist visiting Zion National Park prompted a state audit of the Springdale Police Department. The tourist claimed that after receiving a citation, she was told she needed to pay the fine immediately, and in cash.
That practice violates state law. The concern is that officers could conceivably write citations, collect cash, destroy the documents, and keep the cash. Of the 423 citations issued from January 2011 to January 2012, the audit found that 1/3 were missing from the town's records.
Kanab-based Healing Heart Sanctuary is one of only 2 Utah non-profit organizations that has been selected this year as a finalist in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good program, a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker is giving 100 cars to 100 non-profit charities over the course of 100 days. Healing Heart Sanctuary was selected as a finalist from more than 4,000 applications nationwide.
Listen to Storee Powell's full interview with Ryan Combe, 1st District Congressional Candidate. Combe will debate Donna McAleer in Logan on June 14 in anticipation of the Democratic Primary on June 26.
In the 1st Congressional District's Democratic primary on June 26, Utahns will decide between the candidates Ryan Combe and Donna McAleer. The winner will try to unseat the Republican incumbent Rob Bishop, who has represented the 1st Congressional District since 2003.
Both contenders said they will not be "career politicians" and are in favor of campaign reform.
