Amanda Ellis-Graham’s multiple sclerosis was once so bad she could barely hold a pencil. She suffered from vision and hearing problems. Walking was nearly impossible because of terrible vertigo. Numbness and a sensation of pins and needles slowly spread through her body. Ellis-Graham, now 37, was 18 when she was diagnosed with MS, a debilitating disease in which the body’s immune system attacks and eats away at the protective sheath that covers nerve cells. The symptoms forced her to drop out of... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Who is Rex Tillerson, dark-horse candidate who reportedly beat out Romney, Huntsman for secretary of state? 11.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
So far, President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks have mostly been either multimillionaire and billionaire executives or retired generals. In that context, it’s probably less of a surprise that Trump will reportedly select Exxon Mobil chief executive Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, elevating a dark-horse prospect who may surge past seasoned political actors like Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., in the stretch. Tillerson’s hardly an unknown character on the world st... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Local Republicans contemplate what Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee means for Utah voters in November. Former Sen. Bob Bennett dies at age 82. Salt Lake City Council members want more detail in Mayor Jackie Biskupski’s vision for the city.

Letter: 'Take back' decency in governing, not public lands 9.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Several front groups supported by the money and philosophy of outside billionaires operate in Utah. Americans for Prosperity praises and directs our local legislators. FreedomWorks endorses Mike Lee and tells Orrin Hatch not to consider a Supreme Court nominee. Why do we have outside money wielding such influence in our state? Jane Mayer’s “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right” is instructive. Local legislators and voters need to know that Ame... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Bishop’s chance 22.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
It’s another report among many on the lack of congressional action on important issues, and it’s coming from a left-leaning organization. But the Center for American Progress provides information in its latest study that should be of particular interest to Utahns. The report concludes that political maneuvering by Republicans in Washington has prevented passage, or even debate, on dozens of bills to create wilderness across the country. The effect has been that even measures coming from local s...

D.C. Notebook: Utahns poured $12 million into presidential race 22.4.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
by Thomas Burr And Matt Canham The Salt Lake Tribune Published Apr 22, 2013 01:01AM MDT Washington • Utahns donated nearly $12 million to the presidential candidates during the last election, with Republican Mitt Romney alone taking in a windfall of about $9.3 million. That’s according to the (mostly) final numbers now available from the Federal Election Commission after candidates filed their updated reports after the race. Romney, an adopted favorite son in Utah who has been spotted in the state several times since losing the White House race, took in more in the 2012 race than h... ...

USU study says fishing nets $259 million for Utah economy 20.4.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
by Brett Prettyman The Salt Lake Tribune Published Apr 19, 2013 01:14PM MDT Anglers, as is well known, have a tendency to exaggerate their catches. The same cannot be said about the Utah State University economists who recently conducted a report on the economic impact of Blue Ribbon Fisheries in Utah. The economists say that conservatively, they estimate anglers contributed $259 million in direct spending to fish in Utah in 2011 — about $184 million of that spent specifically to fish Utah’s Blue Ribbon waters. Those direct expenditures included things such as lodging, ... ...

Bishop’s deal 19.4.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Published Apr 19, 2013 01:01AM MDT Utah’s veteran Republican member of the U.S. House, Rob Bishop, seems to be, as Native Americans said of government negotiators in the 19th century, talking out of both sides of his mouth. Bishop is doing the right thing in taking up the cause of former Sen. Bob Bennett to work with opposing sides in the perennial debate over public land use in Utah. Bishop said this week he wants to tone down the rhetoric — much of it his — coming from proponents of fossil-fuel development and environmentalis... ...

Backers of Utah N-waste site call it quits 22.12.2012 Salt Lake Tribune
by Judy Fahys The Salt Lake Tribune Published Dec 21, 2012 06:24PM MDT Plans to store the nation’s high-level reactor waste in Utah are officially dead. The consortium of utility companies behind the idea has asked the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to scrap its license for a 100-acre parking lot for radioactive waste containers on the Skull Valley Goshute Reservation in Tooele County. Private Fuel Storage “has notified us in writing it would like the license terminated,” David McIntyre, an NRC spokesman, said Friday. The request signals the end of long, often ... ...

Huntsman pledges to break up oil ‘monopoly’ 2.11.2011 Salt Lake Tribune
By Thomas Burr The Salt Lake Tribune Published Nov 2, 2011 10:51AM MDT Manchester, N.H. • Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman said Tuesday that as president he would break up big oil’s “monopoly” on transportation fuel to make way for alternatives. Still, Huntsman says he also would immediately move to end the country’s “heroin-like addiction to foreign oil” by allowing drilling off the U.S. coasts and in protected areas of Alaska and that he would also eliminate every energy subsidy, including those for oil, gas, wind and solar — while redirecting government funding to... ...
