There is an ongoing disagreement among outdoor enthusiast about how many wild horses should be able to roam western public lands. In Utah this argument is often loud and leads to litigation. These discrepancies boil down to how each person weights the value of horses, cattle, wildlife, econo…

ELY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s Great Basin Institute has been awarded a federal grant to begin planning the creation of what the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources says is the nation’s first professional recreational trail-building school.

Its time for this year’s forecast of the waterfowl season. Most years this is a simple exercise, as you can look at the Fish and Wildlife surveys of spring nesting conditions across the prairie pothole region. This is the second year in a row, however, these surveys weren’t conducted as plan…

It’s once again time for bird hunting season to commence. Monday, Aug. 30 is the opening day of Idaho’s forest grouse season, while Utahns have to wait until Sept. 1. Dove season in both states opens on the 1st.

An important facet of hunting and fishing is having respect for the animals that are pursued. Part of living up to this objective is paying attention to the ambient situation so animals are not unnecessarily stressed and their meat is not wasted. A condition that can cause animals to be natu…

Back when we were still dating but contemplating marriage, one of the topics my husband and I discussed was the discipline of our potential future children. We agreed hitting children is wrong. My husband further articulated that the only stern physical contact he wanted his kids to receive …

To step through the arbor into the 1/8th acre garden of Dale and Charity Wallentine in Fairview, Idaho, is like entering into a picturesque wonderful world of animation. The Wallentine’s unique garden is full of their handmade sculptures made out of old tires that they carved and painted. Ea…

Desperation can cause us to look for answers where no answers can be found. I was reminded of this in a quote attributed to Leo Tolstoy who, while reflecting on extreme poverty in Russia, wrote, “The people of Moscow were looking for food in toy stores and hardware stores.” Tolstoy expresses…

With September comes the harvest season. In our nearly 40 years of gardening in Logan, possibly due to this summer’s heat, we have had one of our best harvests ever. Early in our marriage we grew an heirloom dry bean we called “Hodgdon beans.” We never knew its real name, but we were told th…

The interior of my house is completely ripped apart. My husband and I, in a fit of ambition brought on by spending perhaps a little too much time together with all our children this past year, are painting and remodeling.

A “Black Widow” movie should have been done a long time ago. There were rumblings that Marvel didn’t think a female-centric movie could garner the box office buzz as some of the MCU’s other big-name heroes. That was early in the process, but now we know different.

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 …

Summer is a time for trips. Whether you are taking a day trip to Bear Lake or an extended vacation, one thing you’ll always have to plan for is what food you’ll eat.

“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…
