  • Legacy Speedway

    I commute between Layton and Bountiful on Legacy Highway. If I observe the posted speed limit of 55 mph, I feel like I am standing still compared to the other drivers. On a couple of occasions, Utah Highway Patrol officers sit in the median and watch, like all is well.

    Isn’t all that loose change she stuffs into the Salvation Army buckets each December enough of a charitable contribution for them? Can they not see that it really bugs her to have to acknowledge their existence? Ryan makes no reference to the many...

  • Pump Up the Volumes
