Food Co-op Provides Produce at Discounted Rates

When you think about December foods, fruit and veggies probably aren’t the first things that come to mind. During a month of cocoa, candy canes and cookies, produce seems to take the backburner. That is until you find a basket full of bounty is just a few blocks away. Last Saturday I left my house […]

Breaking Dawn Premiere Calls for 19 Screens at Local Theaters

Thousands of people headed to the theaters Thursday night to watch the biggest wedding of the year- and no it has nothing to do with the Kardashians. “Breaking Dawn”, the first part of the final segment in the Twilight series, hit the box office with over 30 million dollars in profit from the midnight premier […]

St. George Residents Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Over the weekend nearly 300 people flocked to Dixie High School to participate in the annual “Walk to End Alzheimer’s.” I’d been to one of these walks before, yet I was still surprised at the overwhelming emotion emanating from Saturday’s crowd. They were so happy, I thought when I first arrived. So hopeful, so excited, […]

First St. George Flash Mob Draws 200 Zombies to Mall

This Halloween almost 200 zombies reported to Red Cliffs Mall. Following kids trick-or-treating, hundreds of young zombies staggered to the center of the mall to perform St. George’s first Halloween flash mob. The mall was packed with families- moms holding hands of superheroes, skunks, and soldiers, and dads following along with cameras and candy buckets. […]

10-Year Anniversary of Local Farm Brings Triple the Visitors

A local family farm is celebrating its ten-year anniversary with nearly three times more visitors than last year. Staheli Family Farm had so many people flooding to 3400 South Washington Fields Road Saturday night that visitors were informed it could be a three-hour wait for the Field of Screams- southern Utah’s only haunted corn maze. […]

Tai Chi Classes Considered ‘Walking Medication’

Last week I tried my hand at martial arts. You can bet I wasn’t boxing, fighting or practicing self-defense, instead I was practicing an art Harvard Medical School calls “walking medication” — Tai Chi. One day my copy of St. George Neighborhoods brought news of a number of classes offered at the Red Hills Wellness […]

A Taste of Dixie Brought Back from the Dead

Last weekend food connoisseurs were able to sample the likes of Bombay Café, Pepper’s Cantina, Café Rio, Le Parry Pastry Shoppe and Brick Oven all in one stop.   Vernon Worthen Park was the source of yet another October Event, this time for the resurrected “A Taste of Dixie.” Thousands swarmed to the festival in […]

Washington County Group Volunteers for Marathon 25 Years

The youth of the Washington LDS Eighth Ward know that being thanked 6,000 times is well worth getting up at 3 a.m. This weekend I was right up in the action of the annual St. George Marathon. No I did not run, now that would be an announcement. Instead I volunteered alongside some incredible individuals, and […]

Usually they mumble a few unrecognizable words and abruptly change the subject as if my marriage is quite literally on the rocks and ready to tumble into the abyss below. Much to their surprise, however, the USU marriage resource guide states that couples need […]
