Big Ogden City Mayoral Primary Debate

OK folks.  Seems we have another Ogden City Municipal Election coming up. In that connection, we're delighted to shine the spotlight on this important  upcoming Ogden City Election event:

Let's face it folks. Under Mayor Mike Caldwell's mayoral administration, Ogden City politics has been, in recent years, a bit of a  "snooze" In that connection, it seems that there are a few political newcomers, Angel Castillo,  for instance, who seems tbe well prepared candidate to "shake things up"

New Years Day Special - Dave Barry’s Year in Review: Is There Anything Good We Can Say About 2018?

Master American satirist Dave Barry: The New Years gift who keeps on giving

The inimitable Dave Berry hits paydirt yet again!
"Here’s hoping that the wish expressed by this erroneous HEMA message comes true. We would truly love for 2019 to be a happy year. Or at least a better year than 2018 was. It has to be better, right? How could it possibly be worse?
Please, put down the Tide Pod."

Sheriff's Office Tows 38 Illegally Parked Cars from S.R. 226 Near Snowbasin Resort - Updated

Sledge-hammer solutions to a fly-swatter problem? You bet!

Lets chalk this up as "rotten" law enforcement behavior, eh, Gentle Readers? Notably this "crime sweep" occurred on Christmas eve, and it's reasonable to assume that at least a few of these auto owners were deprived of their vehicles past Christmas day.
Sledge-hammer solutions to a fly-swatter problem? You bet! We're still scratching our heads wondering why issuing parking tickets wouldn't have sufficed in this instance.

“The people who chose to park illegally did so for reasons of convenience rather than ‘necessity,’” police said.

The Weber County Sheriff;s office just taught these scofflaws about inconvenience, we guess. Right?

Our take? The grinch showed up in unirform on the Snow Basin road on Christmas eve,

Everybody's got their own ax to grind, no?

At Least 4 Utah Cities May Experiment With a New Kind of Voting System

Looks like a pretty good idea to us

Via Fox News 13, we'll highlight a very interesting idea:
SALT LAKE CITY -- A deadline is approaching for cities across Utah to decide if they want to experiment with ranked choice voting.
The Utah Lt. Governor's Office tells FOX 13 that West Jordan, Vineyard, Lehi and Salem have stated an intent to try it out. The deadline for cities to opt in is Dec. 31.
Ranked choice voting is being implemented in the 2019 municipal election cycle as a pilot project passed by the Utah State Legislature. Instead of voting on candidates as "hot or not," you rank them from "first to worst."
Read up Peeps, to find out how ranked choice voting works:
Looks like a pretty good idea to us. So what say our Gentle Readers about this?

Federal Shutdown Begins After Lawmakers Fail to Reach Deal

Hold on tight, gentle readers. It looks like this will be a wild ride

For the third time during the Trump administration, the U.S Government is being shut down, despite GOP ownership of the Legislative and Executive branches, demonstrating the unfitness of the Republican Party to govern. The Standard-Examiner carries four different stories this morning, which we'll reel out in no particular order:
The impact of this blunder will be significant, Gentle Readers:
The gridlock blocks money for nine of 15 Cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies, including the departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, Interior, Agriculture, State and Justice.
The lack of funds will disrupt many government operations and the routines of 800,000 federal employees. Roughly 420,000 workers were deemed essential and will work unpaid just days before Christmas, while 380,000 will be furloughed, meaning they’ll stay home without pay.
Those being furloughed include nearly everyone at NASA and 52,000 workers at the Internal Revenue Service. About 8 in 10 employees of the National Park Service will stay home and many parks were expected to close.
Although partisan politicians are scrambling to place blame, there can be little doubt in whose lap this blunder belongs:

Hold on tight, gentle readers. It looks like this will be a wild ride.

LDS Sister Missionaries Worldwide Can Now Wear Dress Slacks

The changes will take effect immediately

Congratulations, ladies! Maybe you'll be able to get into the Celestial Kingdom all by yourself one day instead of hoping your husband gets there and calls you to his side.
The move, according to Sister Bonnie H. Cordon, is to help prevent disease. She added it will also help sisters in cold areas stay warm, and make it easier for them to ride bikes.
