Daily Fix, Dec 30


The #snowpocalypse finally came to Utah. Slide-offs, crashes, road closures, jack-knifed semis – this one had it all. Be safe out there. Fox 13

*Curious about the seating chart for the Utah Senate? Ric Cantrell breaks it down, with some amusing commentary. Senate Site

*Governor Herbert will be sworn in on Monday, January 3rd at noon at the Utah Capitol. The public is invited and there is no charge to attend, but seating is first-come, first-served. Governor’s site

*Jay Evenson of the Deseret News makes his political predictions for 2011. One of them? That this is the year that “the economic crisis will grab hold of state governments with a vengeance… This is the year that pension shortfalls hit home and the gaps between revenue and expenditures begin to defy quick-fix solutions. Washington won’t be there to bail them out this time.” Deseret News

*Congressman Rob Bishop becomes Chair of the committee that oversees public lands, national parks and forests. Bishop has been an outspoken advocate for responsible land use and an outspoken critic of the current administration’s public land-use policies. SL Trib

*Senator Ben McAdams is tired of kids dying in hot cars – as we all are – and is introducing legislation that will give law enforcement officers and prosecutors wider latitude in charging the adult(s) responsible. SL Trib

*Former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is under investigation for alleged misuse of campaign funds. Not much chance of this staying under the radar. She might be wishing for some magical powers right about now. The Hill

*Speaking of the Senate, when everyone is sworn in on Jan 5th, only 28 Senators will have served more than one full term. That’s pretty amazing, since the Senate has the reputation of being the place you go to die. It appears there is far more turn-over than we give them credit for. The Hill

*And if none of that interests you, just be grateful you are not sharing the road with the the woman who took the driver’s test 960 times before finally getting a license…..

    That was 960 tries at the written test and only ten for the driving portion. The Korean test is tougher than Utah, so if she gets a green card, she would probably be OK here.

    Thanks for putting a date on your blogs Holly. Otherwise I have a hard time keeping track of my “fixes”.

    Thanks, JBT – I couldn’t follow the comments myself, needed to make it easier. And btw, back to a previous comment – my birthday is Dec 18 – close, oh so close.
