SALT LAKE CITY — Almost all of Utah’s 3 million residents — some 80 percent — live within ten miles or so of the Wasatch Front, which extends north to south for about 100 miles in the state’s northeast region. At the center lies Salt Lake City, a surprising city of 180,000 that is as …

In 2017, At Home On My Native Ground

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 01:23:49 +0000

SOMERSET, KY — Maybe because I married in October, and traveled to India in January and to Manila in May to write about environmental heroes.

The White House Wants To Disrupt Elko County and a Whole Lot of Other Places in the West

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 17:58:06 +0000

ELKO, NEV. – From this rest stop desert city midway between Salt Lake City and Reno the snow peaks of the Ruby Mountains are like finely crafted wainscoting in an elegant ballroom.

Dennis Pace Loved His Life in Benzie County

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 02:40:01 +0000

I looked back in my photo archive to find a picture of Dennis Pace, my dear friend who died last week. I found I’d photographed Dennis solely in the winter while we skied or skated. Strange since Dennis and I spent a lot of time together during every other season, as well. He was a …

This Is Tamil Nadu

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 18:45:59 +0000

CHENNAI, India – Unlike India’s other immense cities Chennai is a world apart. Tamil Nadu’s capital city does not have crowds of beggars trolling intersections like in Delhi. It is not nearly as traffic jammed as Mumbai. Its homes are well cared for, and many of its office buildings are new and Miami white, unlike …

Gina Lopez: A Philippine Political Story

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 19:06:02 +0000

Trump Exit From Paris Climate Agreement Is Infuriating and Dangerous

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 15:27:18 +0000

BENZONIA — June 1, yesterday, was miserable and infuriating. President Trump announced that the U.S. is withdrawing from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. It was a decision as foolish and dangerous as the one George W. Bush made on August 6, 2001, when he tossed aside the intelligence briefing — “Bin Ladin Determined To Strike …
