Not-quite-Daily Fix, April 27


I broke one of my own cardinal rules of blogging and named a feature “Daily” thinking, of course, that I would be able to actually post daily. I’ll work on that…..

*At the top of today’s news is weather – tornadoes tore through parts of the south leaving a trail of destruction. CNN

*Big news from Utah is the Real Salt Lake game against CF Monterrey at the Rio Tinto stadium. If RSL can win the continental championship, they will be the first MLS team to participate in the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan this December. Des News

*The Utah legislature will convene a veto override session next Friday morning at 8 am. The main bill being discussed is SB 229, a transportation funding bill. There are three other bills that were also vetoed but seem unlikely to be discussed. Trib

*The Utah Department of Transportation on Tuesday released its list of top 25 road construction projects for the summer, and how to receive updates on construction. Its website,, contains an interactive map of projects statewide. UDOT also printed a 2011 road construction guide that is available at Subway restaurants, hotels, motels, rental car companies and visitors centers statewide. Trib

*And if that doesn’t interest you, the White House produced a detailed, “long form” birth certificate from Hawaii, immediately drawing claims that the document was fake or doctored. Trump claimed credit. The White House commented on the “sideshows and carnival barkers.” Deseret News

    Hi Holly,
    I was at the Women in Business Conference today and was totally inspired by your presentation. What touched me the most however was the look of total adoration and pride on your husband’s face as he watched you speak.

    I would very much appreciate the opportunity to “talk” with you about what I consider to be a serious problem here in Utah that deals with the Guardian Ad Litem’s office and children’s rights. Do the guardians answer to anyone? Whatever happened to a bill Senator Paul Ray was supposedly sponsoring last year after the little boy was badly beaten and killed by his step father? Someone has to advocate for children’s rights. I do agree parents should also have rights whether it is the mother or father, but not as the expense of children and their welfare. Please help or let me know who in the legislature I can address my concerns to. My own children are in a difficult situation. They are getting older and better able to handle it. How about all of the other younger children who cannot? Thanks so much for your time. Sincerely, Joy Howes 801-520-2745
