Teacher Jeremy Reynoso on next week's educators rally at the Capitol.

  • Jan. 16: Rally for Public Education, 4:00 p.m. at the Utah State Capitol, 350 N. State St., SLC. Event by Salt Lake Education Association: "After last year’s passing of the voucher bill, we need to get as many people as we can to the Capitol on January 16 to make sure educator voices are heard this legislative session! We should be worried! We are already hearing about bills that will make it easier to remove 'sensitive' books and curriculum from schools; make payroll deduction of union dues illegal; increase public funding for private school vouchers; require teacher and lesson 'neutrality'; criminalize 'pornography' which could lead to legal action against librarians and educators who allow access to controversial books and/or materials. Let Teachers Teach - We Are Professionals - Let Us Do Our Jobs. Education laws and legislation that do not support educators are demoralizing and add anxiety to an already stressful occupation. Wear red and bring a friend." 

Al's Urban Farm Report, featuring Tyson Roberts of Roberts Family Farms in Layton. In addition to running his 6th-generation family farm and serving on the Layton City Council, Roberts is also part of the American Farm Bureau. The latter will hold its 105th American Farm Bureau Convention at the Salt Palace Convention Center next week.
