What have we learned about Utah recently?

  • Utah is the only state that expressly allows students to carry concealed weapons on campus. - Time Magazine
  • Only three states--Florida, Hawaii and Utah--have laws written broadly enough to protect clotheslines. - Time Magazine
  • Among the most imperiled species that regularly breed in the continental United States are the gunnison sage-grouse, a chickenlike resident of southwest Colorado and adjacent parts of Utah. - Newsweek
  • Highway Patrol crosses causing controversy - Newsweek
  • Retirement factors for American Fork (I live a block away and never knew that the Tri-cities Golf Course was called "Fox Hollow" - I guess it was renamed in January) - US News
  • Everyone is making comments about Utah being ranked as the state with the highest rate of depression, including this on Arianna Huffington's site.
  • There are probably a million ways Jerry Mika could spend $2 million dollars. Trouble is, he couldn't cash the check. Expecting a $15 refund from the Utah Department of Commerce, the Draper man opened his mail recently to find a $2,245,342 check. - NY Times (I'm wondering what system this is. Looks the the check went through Finet, the State's central financial system. Mika, who received the check is part of the SuperSherpas that climbed Mt. Everest.)
