Gospel Music Benefit
Crossroads Urban Center is marking 50 years of service to the Salt Lake City community by hosting a series of events throughout 2016. The first is what is described as "a joy-filled Gospel Extravaganza concert" featuring gospel choirs from Calvary Baptist Chuch, Hilltop United Methodist, Second Baptist and Unity Baptist. Entrance is free, but Crossroads asks attendees to bring two nonperishable food items or a clothing donation for the Thrift Store. Calvary Baptist Church, 1090 S. State, 801-364-7765, Monday, Feb. 8, 6:30 p.m., free admission with donation. CrossroadsUrbanCenter.org

Roller Derby Fundraiser
Who doesn't love a fight on roller skates? You can see that and more at the Roller Derby Double Header & Silent Auction. Home teams the Hilltop Aces and the Aftershocks will compete throughout the season for the home-team championship. The Trainwrecks are made up of the highest skilled and hardest hitting members of the league, representing the Junction City Roller Dolls at home and on the road. The 2016 Season Opener will include all three of JCRD's teams. First up, the Trainwrecks take on the Portneuf Valley Bruisers from Pocatello, Idaho. Next, the home teams will return to the track as the Hilltop Aces go up against the Aftershocks. This bout doubles as an annual silent auction fundraiser with a percentage of proceeds going to support CAPSA. (CAPSA.org) Golden Spike Exhibition Hall, 1000 N. 1200 West, Ogden, 801-399-8798, Saturday, Feb. 6, 6 p.m., $8-$12, kids 12 and under free, JCRDolls.com

    We certainly don't want our hunters hassled, especially in the rain, and that is good reason to loosen Utah's already liberal gun laws.
