Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment has estimated that approximately 1,000 Utahns die prematurely each year because of air pollution. The April 9 story “Dust Up” overstated that number.
The winner of City Weekly’s 2009 Best of Utah award for “Best Chili Verde in Sandy” was La Calandria. Its owners informed us that, although the award was appreciated, after 20 years in business, it recently closed due to a tight economy.

I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
