Honor Former Japanese Incarcerees

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Johnny Cepeda Gogo’s mission to honor former incarcerees at the concentration camps for Japanese Americans continues July 28 at the Salt Lake City Buddhist Temple.

Gogo, who lives in San Jose, Calif., will appear between 1 and 3 p.m. at the temple at 211 W. 100 South as part of his effort to have former incarcerees sign a 48-star flag similar to those that flew over camps such as Heart Mountain and Topaz during the war.

The judge’s effort started in March after he worked with fellow Judge Roberta Hayashi to honor the legal struggle waged by Fred T. Korematsu against the federal government’s forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans.

His appearance is being organized by the Salt Lake City chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League and the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation, which is conducting its annual pilgrimage in Cody, Wyo., the previous weekend. Gogo will appear at the Heart Mountain Pilgrimage and then travel to Salt Lake City.



Blossom as the Cliffrose: Mormon Legacies and the Beckoning Wild Reading

Blossom as the Cliffrose: Mormon Legacies and the Beckoning Wild features original poems and prose by talented writers who are faithful, non-faithful, believers, heretics, converts and de-converts, dragged in or forced out of the Mormon faith. This dynamic collection demonstrates the breadth, complexity, and diversity of a Latter-day Saint legacy of commitment to natural place and challenges us to examine the myriad ways our own deeply rooted heritage shapes our personal relationship with landscape. Join Torrey House Press and Modern West Fine Art for a reading and discussion with editors and contributors to Blossom as the Cliffrose: Mormon Legacies and the Beckoning Wild.

Union Drive-In: Clueless

Shallow, rich, and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was — and falls for him.
