I believe strongly that having control about when, where, and with whom you have a child is a big factor in the health of a person as well as their community. Half of pregnancies are unintended, which is unfortunate and avoidable. I want to make sure babies come into this world welcomed by parents that planned to have them, and are ready to raise them. Having a population knowledgeable about birth control is an important step to make sure our families stay healthy and happy. That is why I will be giving a lecture about birth control.

I want to cover the many types of birth control, how they work, how long they last, how to use them, and who you can talk to about getting access to one you may be interested in.

Date: November 16, 2016

Time: 7 pm

The Salina Public Library is beginning their ‘Food for Fines’ program.  Starting November 1 and going until December 31, 2016 the library will accept one can of nonperishable food for every dollar that patrons owe on fines from library books.  The food will go to the local food bank.

“Even if you don’t have any fines, you can donate food,” said Librarian Rhonda Huntsman. “Please help us feed Utah families this holiday season.”

The library cannot accept out dated food or food from the Bishop’s Storehouse, and food cannot be exchanged for lost library materials.

Central Utah Food Sharing Annual Holiday Food & Fund Drive

Central Utah Food Sharing asks public to use any bag to bring non-perishables to its location


Central Utah Food Sharing will be having their annual Holiday Food & Fund Drive Saturday, November 12 2016.

“This important campaign helps stock the shelves all year long,” said Roene Shaw, Central Utah Food Sharing Director.

The Utah Food Bank hopes to encourage people to Fight Hunger Statewide in a more eco-friendly way, and this year, Central Utah Food Sharing is working to reduce waste by not distributing donation bags. Instead, they are asking residents to please have donation bags visible from the street on the morning of Saturday, November 12. Youth groups will be there to pick them up; however, if you’re missed, Central Utah Food Sharing is asking donors to bring non-perishables in their own bag directly to Central Utah Food Sharing (2050 South Industrial Park Road, Richfield).  In addition, their truck will be at the Salina LDS Stake Center.

“Hunger is such a critical need for our community to address,” said Shaw. “One of every five kids in Utah risk missing a meal today due to lack of resources. This time of year is one of hope and joy for so many people, but it can also be a tremendous strain for those who don’t have enough to eat. The donations we receive through the Holiday Food & Fund Drive will help residents in Sevier County and across the state well into 2017.”
