This is the week of one of the world’s best ATV Events

This is the week of one of the world’s best ATV Events. It is hosted right here in our own Sevier County, it is, of course, the ATV Rocky Mountain Jamboree.

Many people will visit our communities and mountains from all over the world. Our businesses will be busier and it will give us a chance to be friendly and show them what a wonderful place Salina is.
We will have many volunteers helping with the Rocky Mountain Jamboree from the Salina area. Kreig Rasmussen and his brother Kirk D Rasmussen are two of those volunteers. Here is a short video clip of how a ride with Salina’s own photographer Kreig Rasmussen could be a ride you will always remember.

We want to thank Sevier County, the Rocky Mountain Jamboree, the merchants, hotels, food service people and all of the volunteers for the great job they do with this amazing event.

We express our gratitude to military veterans! Do You Know of a Veteran Who Needs to Have a Utah Honor Flight Experience?

We express our gratitude to military veterans! As part of a Utah Honor Flight experience, BYU College of Nursing had the honor of sponsoring 17 veterans and accompanying them to see their memorials in Washington, D.C. This video is the full story of their tour and captures them as they depart/return and highlights select sites in between. It depicts the opportunity offered by Honor Flight hubs across the nation to veterans, especially of World War II.

 

Once again we express our gratitude to military veterans! Do You Know of a Veteran Who Needs to Have a Utah Honor Flight Experience? Could you help sponsor a veteran? Please call for more details.

Join KUED, the Casino Theatre, and Utah Humanities for a special preview program of The Vietnam War

Join KUED, the Casino Theatre, and Utah Humanities for a special preview program of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, The Vietnam War PBS.

This series tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides—Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam.

Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations. THE VIETNAM WAR features more than 100 iconic musical recordings from greatest artists of the era and haunting original music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as the Silk Road Ensemble featuring Yo-Yo Ma.

FREE POPCORN!

Matt Basso, Associate Professor of History at The University of Utah will lead a discussion following the film.

New Cell Phone Tower Being Built in the Salina Utah Area

New Cell Tower Being Constructed Near Salina Utah along the Gooseberry Interchange on I-70

Remember the days of early cell phones? Were you one of the people who said,”ah I will never want or need one of those brick looking things?” Now days even our grandparents have smartphones and use them quite well. Every day it is amazing to find usable signals in the mountains that were not there a couple of years ago.

We definitely live in an amazing age, and it only keeps getting better. The cell coverage in the Salina area is really good already, and soon it will get better for some cell customers. After many years of planning and acquiring permits, a new 180′ cell phone tower is under construction on the I-70 Gooseberry Interchange near Salina Utah. An additional tower is scheduled near the coal mine exit just off of I-70 in the future. Salina is an amazing place, and our technology just keeps getting better here.
