You Don't Have to Go Homeless, but You Can't Stay Here

An article from Mark Shenefelt at the Standard this week chronicled the recent drop in the number of beds at Northern Utah's largest homeless resource center, The Lantern House, right here in Ogden.


According to Shenefelt, the city reduced the number of beds by 33% for code violations, but the number was later negotiated back up.

Weber County Municipal Election Recap w/ Kingmaker, Oscar Mata

Last Tuesday, the Weber Elections Office tallied up the ballots to see who would be taking seats on city councils and mayor's offices across the county. We invited the Kingmaker to come on to tell us about some of the wins, some of the losses, and what it means for the future of politics in Weber County.
