I’m back with another edition of “Just Another Manic Monday.” Last Monday was truly manic, and I was not able to give you the highlights of news from the past week. I do apologize. These things happen. Continue reading to see the peaks and valleys from this past week from within our state and at the national level.
#1. Land transfer battles rage on, county by county – The American Lands Council is alive and well and living in Utah and Nevada
#2. Exclusive: Hillary Clinton: What I have in common with Utah leaders – Will playing the religious card appeal to Utah’s LDS population?
#3. Bid to censure West Jordan city councilman falls short – In one word, we can describe this outcome as “disappointing.”
#4. Utah teachers say new licensing option will further erode profession – Let’s talk about band-aid solutions, shall we?
#5. Utah guv sticking by Trump, says ‘unvarnished’ comments part of his appeal – No, Herbie, no!!!
#6. 6 things to know about independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin – Yeah, we hadn’t heard of him either – but this Utahn might have more experience than Trump (and he’s definitely nicer)
#7. GOP senator Susan Collins: Why I cannot support Trump – R-E-S-P-E-C-T – find out what means to all of us, Trump!
#8. Top Democrats warn against writing off Trump – “Constant vigilance!” – rallying cry for Democrats in the face of Trump (and a rallying cry all too familiar to Harry Potter fans – am I right?)
#9. Donald Trump Suggests ‘Second Amendment People’ Could Act Against Hillary Clinton – Yeah, this happened
#10. Trump escalates claim that Obama founded ISIL – And yeah, this happened too
Until next week,
