Healthy oceans need sharks

Being from Salt Lake City and wanting to be a marine biologist may seem strange, but the oceans always fascinated me. Although I ended up moving to New York to model, I still carry that passion with me. That’s why I support legislation that would help one of the ocean’s most important...

The recent July 4th holiday found us in the mountains with about a million other Americans celebrating the nation’s independence with kids, dogs, ATVs, and various shelters—everything from simple tents to colossal homes on wheels with 6 pop outs, front porches, and double showers. The...


Do we have it in us?

I would like to have a brief conversation with the majority of voters in Utah, those who are Mormon and vote Republican. Somewhere, in between the Fox News channel and KSL you might have accidentally stopped on CNN or MSNBC. Before you were able to change channels, you heard uncomfortable things....
