July 2, 2012



Post by Hannah Wheelwright – I have been told I live in the field. I’m not talking about the mission field that is white already to harvest – Utah is actually rather cloudy and brown right now from all the fires, not to mention the raining ash. (Last days, anyone?) I’m talking about a unique […]

Ann Romney and the War on Women

April 17, 2012



Post by Eric R – You have probably heard about the dust-up over a comment Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen made about Ann Romney a few days ago.
