Sunning the President 

Pin It

Utah's never-ending warm weather is a shoe-in to keep giving up sunshine right into summer. So, in addition to rubbing a little sunscreen on your nose before a hike, think of giving a bottle to the homeless. On Friday, keep your eyes peeled for President Barack Obama, who is visiting Utah for the first time since being elected. And, just in time for college registration, don't miss a speech at the University of Utah about tuition costs.

Sun Safety Drive
April 1-30
The Fourth Street Clinic is seeking donations of all manner of sun-safety gear, including sunglasses that offer protection from ultraviolet light, SPF 30 unscented, non-aerosol sunscreen, lip balm and hats—wide brims preferred. Donation boxes will be located at Salt Lake County Library branches, the county government center and the Huntsman Cancer Institute.,

Obama in Utah
Friday, April 3
President Barack Obama hasn't been to Utah since 2008, when he was on the campaign trail. When he visits Hill Air Force Base on Friday, he probably won't be surprised to find the Beehive State buzzing over his arrival—some with stingers out. Since you're probably not invited to see the president speak, stage a protest out in front of Hill Air Force Base. Who knows? Maybe he'll hear you. And, although no details have been released, Obama might just travel to Salt Lake City, where he has a standing invitation from Mayor Ralph Becker. Time details are nonexistent, but make no mistake, powerful people say Obama will be here on Friday.

Tuition at the U of U
Tuesday, April 7
Since the University of Utah joined the Pacific 12 Athletic Conference, all kinds of buildings have been built, the football players got a new place to lift weights and run into each other and tuition has risen, and, will most likely keep on risin'. Ruth V. Watkins, senior vice president for academic affairs, might explain why this is the case in a presentation titled "Tuition at the University of Utah."
