Utah Weather Force Now Officially Serves Lincoln County, Nevada
I'm Norman Purcell and I run Utah Weather Force. I offer what I call "Rainy day Only" forecasts meaning you won't hear from me unless some weather event is likely to happen. Utah Weather Force has been on Newsbreak for nearly 5 months, however we first began operating on Facebook early in the summer of 2022 when the southwest monsoon started. Since then, we have published hundreds of forecasts and averege well above most other sources on accuracy, which is especially apparent during the monsoon season, where many areas which are regularly impacted by monsoon weather don't get any coverage at all. That was the original goal in starting Utah Weather Force - bringing better weather coverage to places around the town in which I live, St, George, Utah. So. you may ask "why did you chose to cover Lincoln County, it's not in Utah?" The simple response is - because they are my neighbors not much more than 20 miles away, and they lack in weather coverage by the TV just like many towns here in Utah, and I had folks saying they followed from here because the Utah weather is close enough. Now, it's even better because I'm looking out for Lincoln County. Utah Weather Force is an independant subsidiary of parent company National Weather Force, bearing the Force name but not the work of the legendary Raiden Storm.

Kayenta’s rigorous dig into WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME
IVINS — Despite the show’s short Broadway run in 2019 of nearly five months, What the Constitution Means to Me, a contemporary play written by Heidi Schreck, won a variety of awards. However, until I arrived at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta, I had no idea what I was about to see. The very name of the show had given the allusion to a title of an essay or a speech, which is ironic in hindsight. Director Zoe Aja Moore, her technical production team, and the cast of three deliver a night of historical and political vibrance and debate, just in time for Thanksgiving, too.
