Samantha Corey, who was battling a rare and terminal form of the disease, passed away before she could finish her senior year at American Fork High School.

It wasn't like we were wanting special treatment for her,' Kimberly Corey, Samantha's mother, said to FOX13. 'I just think...

    A new Utah amendment set to take effect on May 1 will prevent children from being assigned “do not resuscitate” (DNR) status without parental consent. Under the amendment, such an action will be considered “unprofessional conduct for physicians, advanced practice registered nurses (APRN), and physicians assistants.” HB-0200 modifies Titles 58 and 75, ensuring parental rights are protected during a minor’s life-sustaining medical treatment. “No child’s medical chart should have a DNR order or the withholding of life-sustaining treatment without parental knowledge or consent,” said Simon’s Law CEO and co-founder Sheryl Crosier. Sheryl and her husband Scott founded Simon’s Law when,...

    However, a message circulated by the administration to promote respect and tolerance was wildly misinterpreted. The school’s intent to foster “Outstanding behavior might demonstrate curiosity, understanding, patience and tolerance,” as Sorenson conveyed, was lost amid social media speculation and sensationalism. A Change.org petition titled “Students for Humans at School, not animals aka furries,” demanding the school ban furry costumes, gained traction despite the district’s clarification that no such costumes were worn or allowed at the school. Conservative social media personalities and local political figures stoked the flames. For instance, Adam Bartholomew, a radio host whose wife is running for a...

    Students from schools in the Nebo School District in Utah walked out of class on Wednesday and claimed to be protesting against "furries" who growled and bit them at school.

"Furries" are people who dress up as animals, especially cats and dogs, and often behave as if they were animals. A livestreamer named Adam Bartholomew interviewed the students outside Mt. Nebo Middle School in Payson and posted their accusations on social media. His main video on...

    At least six Salt Lake County women share a disturbing reality: prosecutors believe they were intentionally hit by a man in a white car while they were walking outside. KSL is aware of at least two other eerily similar hit-and-run incidents involving women and a suspect in a white car, but those remain under investigation. On March 25, Salt Lake County prosecutors filed several felony charges – including six counts of attempted murder – against 26-year-old Anh Duy Pham. The charges represent four hit-and-run incidents investigators have linked to Pham and involve a total of six victims.

She and a few friends were traveling north from Arizona to attend a weekend preppers conference held at a local high school. At the time, Vallow was married to her fourth husband and had two children and adopted another. But that didn’t stop her from catching the eye of the author and seminar speaker she was here to see. Chad Daybell had already built a reputation, the former Utahn whose apparent near-death experiences had prompted his foray into the world of preppers —...

    A Republican candidate for governor of Utah has linked diversity, equity, and inclusion to the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore. The bridge collapsed early Tuesday after the cargo ship Dali drifted into a bridge support. Among the reactions that looked past the immediate cause, state Rep. Phil Lyman appeared to indicate that the makeup of the commissioners for the Port of Baltimore was a factor in the incident. Lyman is challenging Gov. Spencer Cox for the Republican nomination...
