    TOOELE, Utah — The owner of a female husky faces a slew of charges after the dog allegedly killed more than two dozen animals in the backyards of at least two Utah homes in just a couple of hours, according to KSTU. Police caught the culprit – a 4-year old husky – and now her owner is facing nearly 30 misdemeanor charges. One of the Tooele residents who lost several animals, Trip Kiss, runs a petting zoo with his wife to teach animal husbandry to children with disabilities. Chickens, ducks, peacocks, a turkey and a tortoise, are just a few...

    If there are legal grounds to support it, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jenny Wilson said Monday that she "will support moving toward impeachment" of President Donald Trump. "If the (special counsel Robert) Mueller report comes out with a grounds toward impeachment, I think we are in such chaos as a nation, we cannot heal until he's gone," Wilson told the editorial boards of the Deseret News and KSL. That said, Wilson said she awaits the release of the Mueller report on the yearlong investigation into the president's conduct. "I'm not favoring impeachment at this moment in time," she said. But...

    Democratic senators put on quite a show Thursday at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Desperate for a "gotcha" moment that would disqualify the Trump nominee, the senators asked pointed questions and gave lectures about transparency. But, they embarrassed themselves in the process. Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) got the loudest laugh.Booker's theatrics came at the very beginning of the hearing. He interrupted Chairman Chuck Grassley's opening remarks to announce that he had broken Senate rules and released "committee confidential" documents about Kavanaugh's opinions on racial profiling. He even referred to himself as "Spartacus," as if he was some kind of...

    In April the inept and corrupt Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he was not going to create a special counsel to investigate the Mueller investigation despite calls from Republicans in the House to do so. Instead, AG Sessions stated that he was going to ask an Obama appointee to look into the situation. We knew then that Sessions was balking and doing all he could to prevent justice in his Justice Department and now there’s proof. CNN first reported that John Huber, the federal prosecutor in Utah, has been investigating Republicans’ allegations that the FBI abused a surveillance program...

    Consistent with Secretary Zinke’s priorities for responsible development of energy on public lands and serving America, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Alton Coal Tract Lease by Application for Federal coal resources on lands near Alton, Utah. The decision selects the preferred alternative and includes protective stipulations that will be incorporated in the lease, which will help minimize, or eliminate, effects to wildlife, air, water, recreation and other issues of concern. “Today, after more than a decade of rigorous environmental studies, I was happy to hear that the Trump administration took...

    Justice Denied: In March amid calls for him to do something to get to the bottom of the Obama-era abuses of the FISA court to spy on POTUS Donald Trump’s campaign by the FBI and Justice Department, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Utah-based U.S. Attorney John Huber to the task. In the months since, we’ve not heard much about Huber — about what he’s investigating, who he’s investigating, and what progress, if any, he’s made thus far.

    AMERICAN FORK — A Utah man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend and her 3-year-old son may have been distraught in the days before her disappearance because she was pregnant, courtroom testimony revealed Monday. On a September Monday three years ago, Christopher Richard Poulson came to the Orem Carraba's Italian Grill where Emily Quijano Almiron worked and told her they couldn't have a baby at the time, urging her to get an abortion, according to a written statement from her coworker that was read aloud in 4th District Court. "Chris, I'm not getting an abortion. The damage is already done," the...

    SALT LAKE CITY — The progressive activists who gathered in Utah two weeks ago to strategize for the midterm elections could each recall a moment when they realized the Democratic Party was their foe and decided to quit it. For Kenneth Mejia, 27, who ran for Congress as a Democratic write-in candidate two years ago, it happened when the party declined to include policies that inspire him — like single payer health care and a ban on fracking — in its 2016 party platform. For Diane Moxley, 49, who canvassed for Barack Obama in 2008, it was when the Occupy...

    A teaching assistant at the University of Utah tried to create a “Second Amendment zone” in a classroom, forcing students who legally carry to stand in a tiny, taped-off area during class. Upon being alerted to the situation, the university promptly overruled the instructor and assigned them to non-teaching duties for the duration of the semester.

    American political leaders of both parties are paying tribute and offering prayers for ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, but President Donald Trump has so far been silent. Neither the White House nor the president has yet spoken out after McCain's family announced Friday that the former prisoner of war and longtime public servant would no longer seek medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....

    Mitt Romney (R) said the "last 24 hours" have confirmed his "faith" in the U.S. justice system after President Trump's former campaign chairman was convicted on eight felony counts while his former personal lawyer pleaded guilty to various counts including campaign finance law violations. "The events of the last 24 hours confirm that conduct by highly-placed individuals was both dishonorable and illegal," Romney, who is running for the Senate in Utah, wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. "Also confirmed is my faith in our justice system and my conviction that we are a nation committed to the rule of law."...

    Pterosaurs were giant flying reptiles that flew over the heads of the dinosaurs. Soaring on skin wings supported by a single huge finger, they were the largest animals ever to take wing. Originating in the Late Triassic epoch (around 215 million years ago), they thrived to the end of the Cretaceous period (66 million years ago).Triassic pterosaurs are extraordinarily rare and are known exclusively from marine deposits in the Alps (Italy, Austria and Switzerland), except for Arcticodactylus cromptonellus from fluvial deposits in Greenland.The new Triassic pterosaur is from the Saints & Sinners Quarry near Dinosaur National Monument in Utah.Named Caelestiventus...

    There's word from the war Saudi Arabia is conducting in Yemen against the Houthis who heavily populate the northern part of the country and are supported by Iran. A bomb supplied by the United States was used in an air attack on a school bus recently that killed 51 people including 40 children. It was a laser guided Mk 82 bomb manufactured by defense contractor Lockheed Martin according to the lettering on it. This news report has political overtones since CNN is behind it noting that former President Barack Obama banned the sale of these kind of bombs after an...

    Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.” Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post.

    For the first time in 25 years, the International Republican Institute will have a new leader. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is battling brain cancer, has decided to step down from his role as chairman of the board of the organization, which for decades he has helped to fight for democracy, freedom, civil society, the rule of law and human rights around the world. McCain’s handoff to IRI’s next chairman, Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), is not a signal that McCain’s health is declining. In fact, several McCain associates say his condition hasn’t changed in recent months and he remains actively...
