Last Friday, members of my Salt Lake City office attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Utah National Guard’s newly completed Sunrise Hall worship center. As a non-denominational house of worship, Sunrise Hall will be a first-rate spiritual center that will benefit many generations of Utah Soldiers, Airmen, and their families. Located at Camp Williams in Bluffdale, Utah, Sunrise Hall is the culmination of nearly 10 years of development that took Sunrise Hall from concept to completion.
My staff recently had the opportunity to visit Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum and meet with the park’s regional management and staff. Tim Smith, Southern Regional Director of Utah State Parks, Teri Paul, Park Manager, and Jonathan Till, Curator of Collections were gracious to provide my staff with a guided tour of the park’s facilities, exhibits, and special collections. Tim, Teri, and Jonathan are a great example of the important role that local management plays with our public lands.

Some of the topics discussed during the visits included federal sentencing guidelines, privacy rights, public lands, second amendment rights, the Affordable Care Act, and NSA bulk data collection.
Last week my staff made a mobile office visit to Hooper City and enjoyed the opportunity to meet with individuals in the area. In addition to the mobile office visit, my staff also met with Mayor Korry Green and attended a special event at Hooper Elementary. I would like to thank all those who braved the spring snow to come out and visit with my staff.
