Apparently, even if you get legally married, and your State Supreme Court declares that you are, indeed, legally married, it doesn't matter to some states, or at least some cities and their newspapers. The Associated Press is reporting today that The Spectrum newspaper in St. George, Utah, rejected a wedding announcement for a gay couple who were legally married in California on June 17, 2008. Tyler Barrick and Spencer Jones wanted their wedding announced prior to a family event in St. George next week. Both Barrick and Jones are from Utah, with Jones being from St. George, and both were raised in the Mormon Church. Originally, a clerk at The Spectrum accepted the wedding announcement, as well as payment. Donnie Welch, publisher of The Spectrum, rejected the annoucement, stating that th...

SunRiver St.George has been involved in a unique program for new homeowners in an effort to support Intermountain Health Care's mission to bring world class health care to everyone served by the new Dixie Regional Medical Center. New SunRiver residents have the opportunity to donate $1000 to DRMC and in return SunRiver discounts their home purchase price $500.  To date, over $235,000 has been donated to DRMC.  SunRiver's initial goal was $250,000 which should be meet shortly.  I personally have had clients participate in this program and am proud to be a part of this worthy cause.  Check out all that Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George has to offer.

 Only two hours east of Las Vegas Nevada on I-15 is the Beautiful town/ city of Saint George, right on the very south West tip of Utah.  We went for a short ride on the Harley Sunday afternoon and it was beautiful, with cooler temperatures.  Saint George has been rated between 2-3 number one places to retire in the entire United States. And if you have ever been to Saint George you would understand why!  It is very difficult to take photographs when your riding motorcycle because when you drive by a beautiful scene you have to pull the bike over jump off and pull the camera out of the bags, etc.  I did the best I could and a friend that I was with started to get bothered because he kept having to pull over every time Vegas Bob stopped. He had an expensive camera also, it should have be...

Todd Clark, a fellow ActiveRainer and new friend arrived in St. George, Utah at 10:00 a.m. today with his family to pick up Athena, their newest family member. I originally arranged to meet him and his family at my house in Veyo, where we'd visit a little, discuss piglet-care and they'd be on their way with Athena on board. My boys and I caged her and she was extremely agitated so my husband decided to bring her down and meet everyone at Bluff Street Park in St. George. As he went to pick up the cage, the bottom fell out and off she went into the open range! Have you ever tried to single-handedly catch a pig...they are FAST!!! Due to volcano rock, cactus and rough desert terrain it is difficult to run at a good pace. He called me out-of-breath and explained what happened so I headed to...

This calla lily was a stand-alone this year in our garden. Usually we have several that dot our backyard with vibrant color. Oh, but she is a beauty! This flowering palnt caught my eye while replenishing brochure boxes at one my listings. I thought the little prongs coming out of the flower looked like little forks. Do you see that? And then, there are the majestic cacti that grown so hearty here in southern Utah! From barrel cactus, to the agave variety, they certainly are a healthy bunch!   Do you love flowers?

An agent called me regarding showing a million dollar plus listing that I have. It takes about a 1/2 hour to get it ready to show...it's a large, luxury home with many features including a 30 foot waterfall in the living room and a water fountain in the courtyard plus a resort-style pool area in the backyard and so much more. I love to make my listings shine when possible so if a little sweeping or dusting is needed, I do it!They arrived an hour late (no phone call) and the next day I called to get some feedback...and the agent doesn't answer the phone...nor do I receive a return call! I made a total of 3 phone calls to this person.Am I wrong or is showing up on time or a courtesy call too much to ask?!If I take the time to create a welcome atmosphere when the agent arrives with potenti...

A blonde who got a fishing rod for his birthday decided to go ice fishing to make good use of his gift. Early the next morning, he got all his gear together and headed out to the ice.When he reached his final destination, he cut a large hole in the ice and dipped the rod in. Then suddenly he heard a voice that said: "There are no fish in there".So he moves to another spot and cuts another hole, but then the same voice spoke again and told him there were no fish in there.So he moves again, and the voice tells him there are no fish in there. So he looks up and sees an irritated man staring down at him."How do you know there are no fish there?" asks the blonde.So the man cooly says "Well first of all, this is a hockey rink, and second of all, you're going to have to pay for those holes." ...
