I reject President Obama's Health Reform Plan. It is a sham and an outright grab for power to further control all aspects of our lives.
There, I've said it. I don't have a business like the Whole Foods CEO so no boycott is possible, and I'm not a talk show host like Glenn Beck, so no one can try to cancel my sponsors. But now I can be called an obstructionist, a Nazi, un-American, a fear monger, a domestic terrorist, a right wing extremist, a Rush Limbaugh nutcase, or just a plain bad man.
Does the administration plan to limit health care to the elderly?
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Kheli Dube scored three goals to give the New England Revolution a 3-1 win over Real Salt Lake on Sunday.
"We were playing uphill all game," RSL midfielder Kyle Beckerman said.
Dube scored his first goal in the ninth minute, when he converted a low cross from midfielder Mauricio Castro. The Zimbabwean forward followed 20 minutes later when he knocked in a rebound after Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando made a diving save on Michael Videira.
Dube, a finalist for MLS Rookie of the Year after scoring four goals last year, completed the first hat trick of his career in the 67th, as he flicked a cross by Shalrie Joseph into the back of the net.
SALT LAKE CITY -- Bernie Sulzberger won an exciting criterium on Sunday afternoon in downtown Salt Lake City, capping the final stage of the 2009 Tour of Utah.
But the big hardware went to Rock Racing.
Top rider Francisco Mancebo Perez completed a safe and secure ride on Sunday, maintaining his insurmountable lead to win the overall cycling event. His Rock Racing teammates easily held on to their overall team title.
Sulzberger, an Australian rider with the Fly V team, completed the course in 1 hour, 30:04 minutes, with John Murphy of Ouch/Maxxis second and Chris Barton of BMC third.
FARMINGTON -- While the rest of the state faded, Ogden's Zac Blair finished strong at the Utah Open's final round Sunday at Oakridge Country Club.
Low amateur? With Blair's run this summer, that was practically a given.
When all was said and done, Blair posted the best score of any Utahn with his third-place finish.
The day belonged to Arizonan Nathan Lashley, whose blistering back nine of 30 and final-round 63 vaulted him from 10th place to collect the winner's check of $20,000. Lashley finished with a three-day total of 202 -- 14-under-par.
OGDEN -- First the storm, then the sun.
Ogden's offense mirrored the weather Sunday afternoon, getting shut out for seven innings before Brian Cavazos-Galvez came up with a record-setting hit and a game-winner for the second straight day.
Cavazos-Galvez doubled home two runs in the bottom of the eighth to give Ogden a 3-2 victory over Missoula as the Raptors closed out a seven-game homestand in front of 2,519 fans at Lindquist Field.
With Ogden trailing 2-0 in the eighth, Lenell McGee and David Iden started it with singles against Ryan Robowski, then Brian Ruggiano ended the shutout when he beat out an RBI infield single to set the stage.
OGDEN -- Most fathers and sons go to football games together. Not Gary and Jordan Silver. This father and son team spend their bonding time sailing the world and jumping out of airplanes.
Gary Silver was 16 years old when he got his pilot's license. Shortly after learning to fly, he convinced his friend to take him sailing. He was hooked.
"I asked him why it took him two years to finally take me and he said, 'Gary, you have spent your whole life trying to go fast in your airplanes. I thought you would be bored.' Far from it. I found sailing very much like flying," Silver said.
One sailing adventure led to another, and pretty soon the Ogden anesthesiologist wanted to participate in long-distance sailing.
Two new schools open today in Davis County, accommodating approximately 675 elementary and 830 junior high students.
The schools should also alleviate crowding at nearby schools, open doors for growth and ease scheduling conflicts.
On Thursday evening, students and parents visited Foxboro Elementary School in North Salt Lake and Legacy Junior High in Layton to meet teachers, see classrooms and tour the new state-of-the-art facilities.
Kevin Prusse, Foxboro Elementary principal, and Ken Hadlock, Legacy Junior High principal, said starting the new schools from ground zero is a great chance to grow professionally.
OGDEN -- Alan Martin and Rocky Moline aren't getting much sleep these days.
The former Weber State University students-turned-business partners are working nearly around the clock to fill textbook rental orders from college students around the country through their fledgling company, CampusBookRentals.com.
In just two years, CampusBookRentals.com has grown from a small experiment to a multimillion dollar operation in an industry that is revolutionizing the way college students get the required reading for their courses.
"We're putting in about 20 to 21 hours a day right now," said Moline, the company's vice president. During peak rental periods -- the weeks before new semesters and quarters start -- orders come in as often as three per minute.
NASSAU, Bahamas -- Miss Venezuela was the fairest of them all, again.
Venezuelan Stefania Fernandez won the 2009 Miss Univere pageant in the Bahamas on Sunday night.
Dressed in a flowing red gown, Fernandez embraced runner up Miss Dominican Republic as the announcement was made, and received the crown from last year's winner, Dayana Mendoza, of Venezuela.
The other top-five finalists were Miss Kosovo, Miss Australia and Miss Puerto Rico.
Venezuela, a beauty-obsessed South American country, has won the Miss Universe pageant six times.
"I think this is the most beautiful group of women I've ever seen," pageant co-owner Donald Trump told reporters.
