Hatch honors veterans, calls for support of Trump at Memorial Day service - KSL.comSaturday, June 10, 2017
SANDY — Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, urged attendees at Monday's Larkin Mortuary Memorial Day service to "support our armed forces" and remember those who have died in the line of duty."It’s really important that we all show up and let people know that we’re not going forget these folks,” Hatch said. "They gave their lives for us, and we ought to be willing to give our lives for them.”While Hatch spent the majority of his speech paying respects to those who have served or are currently serving in the military, he also made remarks regarding political divisiveness and a need for respect toward President Donald Trump."He's our president. And yes, I'm sure there are things that we probably don't like about him. But there's an awful lot of things you can like about him," he said. "One of them is that he was willing to run as an outsider, and someone who wasn't given much of a chance, and he was able to run for what he considered to be the principles of this country."I know him really well, and I can say, like others, wi...Monday, May 01, 2017

Once upon a time at the Utah Legislature, Republicans and Democrats would caucus together and discuss important issues.That the Democrats, as the minority, had a seat at the table seems unachievable today.But when Miles "Cap" Ferry was president of the Utah Senate more than 30 years ago, the minority got heard, said former Democratic legislator Mike Dmitrich, who was House minority leader when Ferry headed the Senate.Ferry died late Friday night at age 84. He is remembered as a gentleman with no ego who used that charm to get things done."He was pretty low-key at the Legislature," Dmitrich said. "But he was a big deal on the national stage."Ferry, who led the Senate from 1979 to 1984, was president of National Conference of State Legislatures in 1983-84. In all, he served 20 years in the Utah Legislature, three in the House and 17 in the Senate.When Norm Bangerter became the first GOP governor elected in 20 years in Utah, he appointed Ferry, a farmer and rancher from the northern Utah hamlet of Corrine, to be...Saturday, April 08, 2017

PROVO — Across Utah, nearly 70 mentally ill men and women who are supposed to be receiving mental health treatment are instead trapped in jail cells.They're getting sicker. They're being released without treatment. They're dying.They're not supposed to be there.Charged with crimes but too sick to answer for them in court, they are stuck, waiting for an opening at the only facility in the state that can prepare them to face the legal system — the Utah State Hospital in Provo.The Deseret News spent three months interviewing families, hospital employees and administrators; examining hundreds of pages of jail reports, injury logs and court records; and found that:Inmates are being forced to wait five months or more to get into the Utah State Hospital, far exceeding wait times in six other Western states. Some are dying before they get there. And others are being held for so long that the state is forced to release them from jail before they ever set foot in the hospital.Judges and jailers say they have k...Monday, June 19, 2017

In fact, I can truthfully say that my Church activity and assignments have enhanced my success in my chosen profession. I enjoyed my military career, but I felt there was something else I should be doing so I voluntarily retired. I never dreamed of anything like this calling. However, as Nephi said to his brothers, ‘I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded.’ ”Whether it be in a Church assignment or in his impressive military career, Elder Lasater tried to apply honor, integrity, loyalty, service and fidelity — the qualities represented ...Monday, June 19, 2017
