Happy Mothers Day celebrations today. Our guest Sally Tauber explains geochaching (treasure hunting with a map and gps units!). Thanks to the Natural History Museum for providing passes to the museum. Our "special Mom winner of the day" is taking her mom to a Big Stars Bright Nights show, thanks to Teri Orr at the Park City Institute. All that and weekend events to attend.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Gov. Gary Herbert will open his first annual Outdoor Recration Summit on Thursday by signing a long awaited swap of state and federal lands in Grant, San Juan and Uintah Counties.
The deal gives the federal government about 25,000 acres of conversation and recreation lands in exchange for about 35,000 acres of energy-rich land for the state.
Congress authorized the deal in 2009 but it has taken years of negotiations to be finalized.
John and Lynn spend the first half of the show with Richard Giraud, landslide specialist for Utah Geological Survey. Common types of Utah landslides are debris flows, slides and rock falls. In the second half, Richard Primack, author of "Walden Warming: Climate Change Comes to Thoreau's Woods". Richard uses notes on the natural history of Concord Massachusetts from Henry David Thoreau, to track the effects of a warming climate.
Lynn and John first welcome Joy McCarthy. She'll bring a wealth of knowledge about simple, clean, and whole health. We make it so complicated, but you'll love hearing from her. Then, Krista Bremer. From free spirited, blonde surfer girl to someone who never imagined she'd find herself in what she calls an accidental Jihad, Bremer will take us through the joys, triumphs, and challenges of parrying a Muslim and all that goes along with it.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Several men exiled from Warren Jeffs' polygamous sect say requiring a man to pay his wives' attorney fees after winning a recent custody suit would have a chilling effect on others who have been kicked out and want their children back.
Lorin Holm is fighting back against being forced to pay up to $76,000 to attorney Rod Parker, who represented Holm's two wives who remain followers of Jeff. Parker says a state statue alows a judge to charge the winning spouse in a custody suit if the other is unable to pay.
Chris and Nell speak with Alan Weisman, author of "Countdown - Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth". Weisman asks: How many humans can the planet hold and can we design economies that provide prosperity without endless growth? His answers are as eye-opening as they are hopeful.
