  • Utah moves to toss school ban on 'advocacy of homosexuality'

    Associated Press ^ | Feb 21, 2017 8:51 PM EST | Michelle L. Price
    Utah lawmakers took the first step Tuesday to get rid of a state law that bans the “advocacy of homosexuality” in schools, a move driven by a court challenge from gay rights groups. The Senate Education Committee voted unanimously in favor of a Republican bill cutting the phrase from sex education law. The National Center for Lesbian Rights and Equality Utah sued last fall, saying the law creates a “chilling culture of silence that stigmatizes LGBTQ students” and exists only to express disapproval of being gay. A number of states have similar laws, but few others are moving to overturn...

    A man who prosecutors say had three wives and had them refer to him as "Lord," has been charged with plotting to kill a 14-year-old girl whom he was convicted of sexually abusing. Kain Blackwing, 47, whose current address is listed as the Beaver County Jail in court documents, was charged Thursday with three counts of solicitation for aggravated murder, conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder. All charges are first-degree felonies.

    The storm producing torrential rain in coastal Southern California into Friday night will also threaten lives and property in the deserts of Arizona, California and Nevada this weekend. In a sense, the rainfall will be like a fast-moving tropical system. A general 1 to 3 inches of rain will fall with locally higher amounts over the south-facing slopes of the mountains into Saturday night. "Much of this rain may fall in a few hours' time, which is more than enough to cause significant runoff, flash and urban flooding due to the landscape in the region," according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Evan...

    Hundreds of jeering, shouting, angry voters, jam-packed in a high school auditorium, lashed GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz at his town hall meeting in the heart of red-state Utah. Chaffetz was frequently drowned out by boos at Brighton High School, in a Salt Lake City suburb, over the course of Thursday night’s meeting, which he cut short. He was booed when he walked on stage, and he was often booed when he mentioned the name “Trump.” The House Oversight Committee chairman was challenged on Donald Trump’s threat to eliminate Obamacare, his vow to slash support for women’s health by cutting Planned...

    A disgraced former English teacher confessed that she had lost sight of her “values” when she had sex with three of her students, but it wasn’t enough to get her out of jail on good behavior. According to the New York Post, Brianne Land Altice was ordered to serve at least two more years in prison after the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole made their ruling on Tuesday. The 37-year-old, who used to teach at David High School in Kaysville, Utah, was slapped with three felony counts of forcible sex abuse in 2015, and was sentenced to 2-30 years...

    A convicted felon and key prosecution witness in the criminal case against former Utah Attorney General John Swallow threw out some big names in state and national politics during a court hearing Tuesday. And Swallow’s one-time co-defendant who prosecutors still consider a “co-conspirator,” former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, made an unexpected appearance in the courtroom. Marc Jenson testified at an evidentiary hearing that Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes, R-Draper, and then U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, attended a “secret” meeting involving the Utah Transit Authority in his Southern California office in 2009. Hughes was a legislator but...

    If a tough new proposal in Utah becomes law, just a few drinks — or even a few swigs — could put you over the limit for drunk driving. An effort is underway in the state to lower the legal blood-alcohol concentration for driving to .05 — a first in the nation. Currently, all 50 states have a .08 cap, eschewing suggestions from the National Transportation Safety Board to redefine what constitutes drunk driving.

    President Obama has created two new national monuments in southeastern Utah and southern Nevada totalling 1.64 million acres, despite intense opposition from American Indians living in the area. Obama created the Bears Ears and Gold Butte national monuments using his powers under the Antiquities Act, adding to the 265 million acres of lands the president has already put under stricter federal regulation. The White House set aside 1.47 million acres of land to create the controversial Bears Ears monument, which has been opposed by local Navajo tribal members despite being supported by tribal officials. “Today’s actions will help protect this...

    The state of Utah has denied it has anti-gay school laws as it defends itself from a lawsuit challenging restrictions on talk about homosexuality in the classroom. The case quotes selectively from state law and school rules, which don’t contain the phrase “anti-gay laws,” state attorneys said several times in court documents filed Tuesday. They say the state school board is immune from a lawsuit and ask for the case to be dismissed. The National Center for Lesbian Rights argues the ban on so-called advocacy of homosexuality stigmatizes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students. …

    Salt Lake City rallies against Donald Trump on Saturday detoured from the crude chants and sometimes-obscene posters of other recent protests into more of an old-fashioned love-in. In an afternoon march from the Salt Lake City Hall to the state Capitol, most protesters carried roses as a symbol of peace — especially for Muslims, Latinos, refugees, immigrants and other groups Trump had attacked during his campaign. Marchers wore safety pins on their shirts, as signs that they are people who anyone may call on for protection. They usually followed organizers' pleas to avoid derogatory chants and crude language on signs....

They, like most of the nation, were shocked that Donald Trump was poised as of early Wednesday morning to potentially win the presidency of the United States. But McMullin’s core campaign message, that the Republican party had forsaken its principles and allowed itself to be hijacked by a parasite named Trump, was validated by the incoming results, he told the crowd of supporters here in Utah. As of late Tuesday night, Trump led...

McMullin doesn’t even lead among Mormons even though he’s Mormon himself, a Utah native, and a BYU grad.

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton faces a striking choice in the final three weeks of the campaign: to expand her efforts to states that Democrats haven’t won in a generation, or to stay a current course that, if conditions hold, would deliver her a resounding electoral college victory.

    About 2 months ago, we presented the story of Roger Bauer, a victim of communism in the state of Rhode Island. The Democrats who control that state and support communism along with his liberal family abused him, denigrated him and forcibly held him captive in Rhode Island. He was unable to find work, be independent or take care of himself because of the bad treatment he received. Roger was accused of having Asperger's syndrome, a very terrible disease of the brain that is believed to exist by liberals and those sympathetic to them and to government. Also they say those...

    This past Monday marked the 20th anniversary of President Bill Clinton using the Antiquities Act to create the 1.5 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah. For most Utahns, this date is not a cause for celebration. It’s a source of anger toward what many see as an out-of-touch and overbearing federal government Infamously, the Clinton administration failed to notify the people of Utah prior to announcing the monument designation—probably because the administration knew that nearly everyone in the state was opposed to the idea. Utah’s congressional delegation, state and county leaders, and local residents all warned that a...

    In a message sent to The Salt Lake Tribune and other news organizations Monday afternoon, someone identifying himself as Christopher Craig and as "the radical Islamic jihadist Muhammad Allah Al-Khidr" said the sender would "call 911 with a threat of an explosive" at the school.

"Racism is the reason for my hunger strike," the email reads, "to take this conversation deeper, to the truth, core and roots." The sender says he will await the return of Prophet Isa, the name for Jesus Christ...

    Sea Bears is a successful restaurant serving sea food in Ogden, Utah.  They have made national news by their policy of open carry for restaurant employees and guests.  The policy brought them attention, and they have been successful enough to expand to larger quarters.  The family owned restaurant signed a lease for a new space at Union Station.  Union Station is home to four museums, including the John M. Browning Firearms Museum and the Utah Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.  This appeared to be a good fit for an open carry themed restaurant.The management of Union Station decided to...

    A reader alerted me to this incredible story of patriotism at a high school in Heber City, Utah: Student Ben Schofield is known around Wasatch High School for his American spirit. He flies an American flag from the back of his red pickup truck. "I think it's really important," Ben told Fox 13 in Salt Lake City. "It's not just the material part of the flag, it's the meaning behind it." The other day someone set fire to Ben's flag in the school parking lot. Part of his truck was scorched by the blaze. Some of his classmates saw what...
