Op-ed: Trump EPA nominee would be bad for Utahns' health 26.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Donald Trump’s pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) poses a huge threat to not only the healthy and safety of Utah families, but also to the iconic public lands that make our state so special. Scott Pruitt is a climate change denier whose record isn’t pretty.

Letter: Churches can change their views on family size 15.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Regarding Rob Green’s letter to the editor, “Surcharge on extra kids,” Green is so right to promulgate the common sense fairness of a surcharge on families with more than three children. He believes a surcharge is a pipe dream, however, because so many churches have held as a core tenet, “be fruitful and multiply.” I think he is wrong about it being a pipe dream for two reasons: 1 • We have accepted in our society adding taxes to things like alcohol and cigarettes when we recognize that there i... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

If fulfilled, Trump’s campaign promises to scrap the Clean Power Plan and the Par...
