Fire up your summer with recipes from the season’s new grilling cookbooks 24.6.2019 Headlines: All Headlines
The food media spotlight seems to shine briefest on the genre I'll call "grilling cookbooks," for lack of a better designator. Top 10 lists delivered at year's end rarely include a title from the annual summer batch, although enough of us grill year-round to warrant sustained interest.

Quitting Paris likely to have muted effect in key industries 3.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Dallas • President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord may have only limited immediate impact on many U.S. companies, according to analysts. In part that is because the Paris agreement only went into effect last year, it’s voluntary, and doesn’t carry penalties for countries that fall short of emissions-cutting targets. “What you have is a president making a nonbinding withdrawal from a nonbinding agreement,” said Kevin Book, an analyst with ClearV...

Catherine Rampell: Will Trump force thousands of legal immigrants to stop working? 1.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
WASHINGTON • Come Monday, the Trump administration may quietly revoke the ability of hundreds of thousands of immigrants — almost all women — to legally work in the United States, forcing them to choose between heading back to their kitchens or leaving the country altogether. They are the spouses of workers here on high-skilled visas, and are typically high-skilled themselves. Many have launched businesses that created jobs for U.S. citizens, whose employment may in turn be at risk, too. Take, f...

McBaine: Helping Utah families means letting the last century go 26.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Last week, James Green, vice chair of the Wasatch County GOP, resigned after publishing comments arguing against equal pay for men and women: “If businesses are forced to pay women the same as male earnings, that means they will have to reduce the pay for the men they employ. … Simple economics.” Green continued: “If that happens, then men will have an even more difficult time earning enough to support their families, which will mean more mothers will be forced to leave the home (where they may...

NFL: Cowboys' Bryant ready to return; as for Romo, don't ask 18.10.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Frisco, Texas • Dez Bryant should be ready to return from a knee injury when Dallas comes back from the bye for a key game against Philadelphia in the suddenly difficult NFC East. When the Eagles visit on Oct. 30, the Cowboys will be that much closer to having to decide whether Tony Romo gets his job back from Dak Prescott, the rookie quarterback with a five-game winning streak. Of course, Dallas has this touchy subject because of a surge to the second-best record in the NFC entirely without Rom...

Official: Health law's insurance markets viable 2.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Addressing concerns about rising premiums and dwindling competition, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell asserted Thursday that the federal health law’s insurance markets clearly are sustainable. Willingness by Congress to help smooth out problems would definitely help, Burwell told reporters, but it is not absolutely essential. Congressional Republicans committed to repealing “Obamacare” are unlikely to assist. HealthCare.gov and other state-level markets provide tax... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

NFL: Coaching-hire disparity goes beyond what Rooney Rule can address 30.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
I don’t know if an NFL official, or maybe a team official or two, took to the pulpit Tuesday in a very private memorial ceremony in San Diego for Dennis Green, who in 1992 with Minnesota was given the chance to be just the third black head coach in NFL history. Fritz Pollard in the 1920s before the NFL segregated itself. Art Shell in the late ’70s. Green in the early ’90s. What progress. Green died last week at age 67. It was reported that he suffered cardiac arrest. His second and last NFL head...

The Foundry: Beating addiction cravings with nutrition 26.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
As chef at The Foundry — and as someone who has overcome addiction to celebrate four years of sobriety — I have seen why nutrition is such an important topic for those in recovery. When in the throes of addiction, we usually don’t care about the negative effects our substance abuse has on the mind and body. My intention is to help educate, inform and explore how we can improve our lives through nutrition in recovery. The first topic to address is one everyone is familiar with: cravings. Be it for chocolate, nicotine, salty snacks or alcohol, we all have experienced cravings in our lives. The difficulty in handling these cravings in sobriety is that we, as addicts, need instant gratification. Cravings are a signal from your body telling you it needs something, and your brain recognizes these needs in the way you usually fulfill them. If you always eat candy bars, when you experience a sugar craving, your brain will think first of candy bars first. If you start satisfying that sugar craving with a banana ...

Court helps federal workers file job bias claims 23.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • The Supreme Court is making it easier for federal workers to file employment discrimination lawsuits after quitting their jobs over conditions they consider intolerable. The justices ruled 7-1 Monday that workers who bring so-called “constructive discharge” claims have 45 days from the time they resign to begin the process. The court rejected the Justice Department’s position that the clock should start running when the alleged abuse occurs. The ruling gives employees more time to b...

State gets behind eco-friendly tomato farm in Mona 14.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
The state is offering a $4.6 million incentive to a tomato-growing company to build a 28-acre “greenhouse farm” in Juab County that will employ 280 people and fuel its operations partly with waste heat from a nearby power plant. Houweling’s Tomatoes plans to invest $79 million in a two-phase development adjacent to Rocky Mountain Power’s Currant Creek power plant in Mona. “What a great possibility — to take heat that would go into the air and to produce tomatoes with it 365 days a year,” compan...

Op-ed: Is expanded Medicaid financially sustainable? 4.1.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the United States Supreme Court ruling regarding Medicaid expansion, states are thrust into the position of deciding whether to provide Medicaid coverage for individuals who did not previously qualify for such coverage under state guidelines. By agreeing to provide coverage for all citizens of the state whose income is 100 percent of the poverty level or less, states qualify for federal money to cover individuals whose income is between 100 perce...
