  • How to keep your kids safe this school year
    How can you ensure your kids' safety when going back to school next semester?  How did we get here, according to John Hollenhorst with KSL.com? In the aftermath of the Valentine's Day shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, the Utah Legislature established a special commission to explore the issues of school safety. It quickly learned a tragic common denominator of school massacres: People typically look back after the fact and realize there were warning signs that everyone missed — or didn't take seriously. Now, with a push from the Utah Safe Schools Commission, Utah is moving toward a mental health approach that's designed to catch those red flags and do something about them before a tragedy takes place. Rep. Ray Ward, R-Bountiful, is carrying the commission recommendation in

  • Why are people destroying eScooters?
    eSooters have taken over the world. Now renegades are destroying them and posting the videos on the internet. These scooters have gone through everything from setting them on fire to running them over with trucks.  This is madness.  I get it. There are issues with the scooters. If not parked properly, they can cause a serious traffic jam for blind people, people in wheelchairs, etc.  Let's step up and use the scooters properly before we lose them.  JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Did Trump say the "n-word" and does reall it matter?
    Did President Donald Trump use N-word? Omarosa says yes, he says no, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders offers no guarantee. Also, what do the recordings mean of President Donald Trump and Omarose Onee Manigault--aka Omarosa? There’s nothing to see here. When there is something in her recordings that have an impact we will cover it. But for now, her most salacious claims are just he said she said. And her history tells me she is not to be trusted. For me, the real issue is why was she in the White House in the first place? She’s known on the Apprentice as being the liar. Even the president says she was fired 3 times. He was supposed to be the guy who hired only the best. JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional p

  • Could Utah handle TSA’s new screening technology?
    Los Angeles is poised to have the first mass transit system in the U.S. with body scanners that screen passengers for weapons and explosives. Officials from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Transportation Security Administration will discuss the technology at a news conference this afternoon. The scanners being deployed in Los Angeles project scanning waves to screen passengers at a distance. Officials say they can scan up to 2,000 passengers each hour.
