Living in a Rocky Mountain state, it can be hard to believe the fish species anglers spend the most days pursuing are largemouth and smallmouth bass. Nationwide, more than twice as many days are spent casting lures to bass than all the trout species combined.

Last week my son received a survey from Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources requesting his thoughts relative to the use of new technologies in hunting. The survey questions reminded me there have been rapid improvements in the weapons and associated accoutrements used to hunt big game. The…

Yes. No. Maybe. Depends. There are a variety of ways that we can answer a question. At times an absolute, Yes or No is correct. At other times, a level of vagueness might be appropriate. While our answer can reveal more than a simple yes or no, the context is equally important. For example, …

For Christians across the United States, Easter services on Sunday will reflect an extra measure of joy as the nation experiences rising optimism after a year of pandemic. Even if still observing restrictions, many churches may draw the largest numbers of in-person worshippers in months.

This week I went to Salt Lake to see a pulmonary specialist for a chronic cough that I have had for well over a year. Having already exhausted the possible causes with respiratory tests, chest x-rays and even a CT scan, the decision was to pass me and my symptoms onto a specialist.

All adult women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are included as members of the Relief Society, the church’s women’s organization. Formally organized in 1842, women in the church originally wanted to form a charitable society to meet the needs in their community by caring f…

Asian American Christian leaders said Thursday their congregations are saddened and outraged after a white gunman killed eight people — most of them women of Asian descent — at three Atlanta-area massage parlors. And they’re calling for action beyond prayers.

Recently, I was at the car wash vacuuming the crumbs and gathering random rubbish out of my vehicle. I was appalled at the mess that had built up, creating a layer of broken toy, winter glove, and granola bar wrapper rubble that had become a geographical layer of debris.

The worst aspect of Disney’s recent live-action remakes of past animated classics is that most of them tell the same exact story. There’s nothing new for the audience to gain, the characters stay stagnant, and we end up watching an almost shot-for-shot remake of the animated film for nostalg…

Along the same lines as “Coco,” “Onward” attempts to grapple with the hereafter and how families deal with death. “Coco” is much more thoughtful about it, providing an emotionally resonant portrait love, loss, and death. “Onward” doesn’t reach those heights but does produce some satisfying s…

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Koreans reacted with rare collective joy Monday after director Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” won the Oscar for best picture and three other awards, good news that came as their country struggles to guard against a new virus and counter North Korea’s nuclear threat.

Pushed back from a November 2019 release after backlash focusing on the look of the title character, which was indeed nightmarish, Paramount’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” seemed destined for failure. A revised February release date — with new special effects — didn’t do it any favors, as that time …

“Birds of Prey” is much better than “Suicide Squad,” but that’s a low bar indeed. At least it’s a bit more upbeat about Gotham and the miscreants that populate it. There’s a sense of humor here that’s sorely missing in other DC fare. It’s when it tries too hard for adorable dementedness that…

“Water is life” is a phrase that exists in some form throughout the world, both in language and culture. Few would deny the fundamental importance of water to people, and indeed, to all living organisms.

We are not great at evaluating our own health. Sure, our sniffles tell us if we have a cold, and back pain is pretty obvious. However, we probably tell ourselves that we weigh less and exercise more than we really do. The 2017 Utah Health Values Study noted that only 45 percent of people in …

Compared to the summer months, I always feel housebound during Utah’s winters. It’s not that I’m inactive. Rather, the limited daylight hours put a cramp in my style. I like running up Green Canyon on early summer mornings. I enjoy riding my bike around the neighborhood with my hubby, Robert…

The seasons help us schedule and plan our lives. Currently, we are enjoying the football season — Go Aggies! The camping and fishing seasons are winding down, and ski season is just over the horizon. Unfortunately, flu season is upon us (don’t forget your flu shot), and the upcoming holiday …
