reating the cover for this special issue of CATALYST was very much like my other vocation, building stained glass windows. My approach to building a good window is to start with great glass. Fitting the pieces together so the personality of each individual shines through makes it tell a story. As the CATALYST 100 took shape with personal stories collected from so many readers and more than a few of our own recollections, it was always important to us to have as many photographs of the honorees as possible. They poured in with a wide variety of flavor. Some stately head shots, some funky party scenes, some with local landmarks and interesting props, presenting a collage of what makes our community rich and balanced. When I moved to Salt Lake City 25 years ago I marveled at all the big city opportunities (I’m from the little village of Winneconne, Wisconsin). Being a CATALYST insider presented

Alternative press, public radio, holistic health practitioners, political activists, art, theater and music along with all the ways to explore the geological wonderland that is Utah made it clear to me I was home. A focal point for the downtown scene was the Zephyr. Chatting with its owner, Otto Mileti to prepare this issue brought me back to my swirly girl years experiencing Salt Lake as a new exciting place.

Toward the middle of the floor, a young guy skates alone. He skates with a cane. It is clear that he is blind. During a break, I ask if I can buy him a Coke and chat a bit: I want to hear his story. He is amiable. I ask what gives him the courage to do what he is doing here tonight. He tells me about a woman heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been studying with. Her name is Victoria Fugit. She teaches something Victoria Fugit called Alpha Awarenessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; where one learns how to call upon various brain states at will for creative as well as practical purposes. He says Victoria, and the techniques she taught, has changed his life. He gives me her telephone number. I am a relative newcomer to Salt Lake, and looking for something like this. I call Victoria the next day.

Victoria quickly became my teacher and friend, introducing me to people I would never have imagined finding in Salt Lake City. The energy was high and ripe for something like CATALYST. Politically and environmentally, people were getting frustrated with â&#x20AC;&#x153;business as usual.â&#x20AC;? Organized religion was losing its grip on the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;spirituality.â&#x20AC;? Psychologically, people were becoming interested in the workings of their own minds.

Slow Food wants you if you have an interesting food-related project in need of some seed dollars BY ADELE FLAIL


ince June, CATALYST has been profiling the small-scale local food producers and foodies-cum-activists who have received micro-grants from Slow Food Utah. For those just tuning in, Slow Food Utah is the local branch of Slow Food USA, itself part of an international movement that aims to help everyone on the planet gain access to “food that is good for them, good for the planet, and good for those who produce it.” This month, the micro-grant program opens to another round of applications for the 2013 season. SFU’s first annual fundraiser—the Feast of Five Senses— was held to benefit the Riley Elementary School garden in 2008. Since then, the micro-grant program has funded numerous projects that continue to advance SFU’s mission in our community. Funds are directed to smaller projects where $1,000 can make a real difference.

in past years have often provided detailed information about the cost of all equipment, supplies, and other outlays, including, (for larger projects) any additional sources for secured funds, or a detailed plan on how additional funding can be secured: “We want to know that the applicants can follow through, that the project will have a lasting impact and not just fade away,” emphasizes current SFU Chair Gwen Crist. While it’s true that SFU aims to support small, local producers, helping with commercial success is only part of the picture —the demand on the part of the consumers is driven by education and empowering the local community to learn about and take responsibility for the impact of their food choices. So, while those applying for equipment or supplies to start or expand a commercial operation may receive a grant, Crist notes that integrating a plan for educating the

Have you been inspired by the stories of previous micro-grant recipients published here in CATALYST? Are you considering submitting an application this year? We spoke with the good people at SFU about what makes a good application. Experimental projects are welcome. SFU recognizes the high potential failure rate in agricultural experiments, and the organization willing to fund those projects that aren't 100% certain to work out— but are less impressed when the plan itself seems experimental, especially if the budget contains only ball-park estimates. “You want to see something new and interesting, but one-time funding is often only enough to get off the grounds... starting is often the easy part, trying to sustain [a project] is challenging,” notes Jen Colby, the group’s microgrant founder. Successful recipients

community is a vital component of successful applicants. Incorporating other Slow Food components into your plan can also make it more appealing to SFU’s selection committee. The Ark of Taste found on Slow Food USA site lists 200 tasty plants and animals in danger of extinction. Grantees Benjamin Bombard and Katherine Pioli raise (and blog about on CATALYST’s website) two of the endangered fowl, Cayuga ducks and American Buff geese. Finally, for those that think they have an interesting idea, but are unsure if it fits with Slow Food philosophy or want more guidance on presenting it, former chair Christi Paulson recommends emailing questions before filling out and submitting the application. u

McKibben advocates fossil fuel divestment Speaking to a sold-out crowd at the University of Utah, climate change activist Bill McKibben said that the business model of the fossil fuel industry will wreck the planet not only because of climate change but also due to extreme mining practices such as tar sands strip mining, mountaintop removal, “fracking” and deep ocean drilling. McKibben advocates a two-

Without a climate action plan, Utah may need to change its license plate slogan from “Greatest snow on Earth” to “Coulda been a contender.” A new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council says that climate change is expected to have major impacts on Utah’s ski industry and notes, “Utah skier visits, which typically are about four million per year, are 14% lower during low-snowfall years compared to high-snowfall years and cost the state $87 million in revenue and over 1,000 fewer jobs compared to snowy years.”

pronged protest: direct action to keep oil in the ground (for example, protesting Utah tar sands development) and divesting fossil fuel stocks (as was done to protest Big Tobacco and Apartheid). Local activists have started a divestment petition for the University of Utah. Is your alma mater on the list yet?

Wolf hunting near Yellowstone National Park was temporarily shut down in December after it appeared that hunters might be specifically targeting wolves with radio collars, disrupting scientific research which has shown that wolf reintroduction is beneficial to the Yellowstone ecosystem. Among the casualties was the alpha female of the Lamar Canyon pack, a good mom and great hunter who was a star attraction for wildlife watchers. Wolves were re-introduced in Yellowstone in 1996, but were removed from the Federal Endangered Species list in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho in 20112012 despite protests from wildlife advocates. Criticizing state management plans for wolves as “wolf-killing plans, not wolf management plans,” Earthjustice has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Defenders of Wildlife, the Center for Biological Diversity, Natural Resources Defense Council and the Sierra Club.

The other foodies A night of dumpster diving reveals a blossoming scene in SLC BY KATHERINE PIOLI

Photo by Pax Rasmussen

owntown, 10:30pm, a Thursday night. I steer my bike into the parking lot of a popular small Salt Lake business and lean my ride up against a concrete wall. My posse of two pulls up behind me and does the same. Next to us is a blue dumpster. City lamplight pours down on


the bin. A family glides past on bikes glancing our way with a mixture of curiosity and concern. Cars drive by. I’m nervous at being so visible. But, there’s nothing illegal about what we are about to do, unless you consider going through someone’s trash trespassing. Dumpster diving, picking food

Laws and etiquette Successful diving walks the line between stealth and politeness


iving in Salt Lake City is quasi-legal. There are no laws that specifically address dumpster diving or trash picking, but dumpsters are often located on private property and dumpster divers can be cited for trespassing. Successful diving walks the line between stealth and politeness. Certainly a trash picker who isn’t noticed by anyone—and who always leaves the dumpster in a good condition and doesn’t spread trash around the area—isn’t going to get in trouble. On the other hand, one successful dumpster diver wrote online that he always wears a grey suit coat and a nice shirt when he goes trash picking, and if there are people around from the business he’ll ask permis-

sion before lifting anything out of the bin. Layton and Orem have specifically outlawed dumpster diving. These laws were passed in 2005 and were intended to address identity theft issues, but they apply to all trash picking without permission of the business. Provo’s laws are less clear, but the police when asked informally stated that unless there’s a “no trespassing” sign up they will probably just ask you to move along. BYU campus police do not tolerate dumpster diving, as they equate it with stealing. Construction site dumpsters are often good resources for scavenging building materials. If you ask the site foreman, you may also be able to scavenge materials

and necessities from other’s trash, is a firm element of anarchist culture. Groups such as Food Not Bombs use “food recovery” as a way to fight poverty, collecting excess food and putting it to use. Some anarchist groups participate in diving specifically in an attempt to act outside of the social system, avoiding the need

to engage with money. There are those who do it for fun, playing along the edges of socially acceptable behavior. While others, often the homeless, participate out of genuine need. The practice drifted into Salt Lake on anarchist tides from New York and Los Angeles around four

like paint and drywall compound if they are going spare at the end of a project. As anyone who watches TV crimes shows knows, police detectives and private investigators also go through people’s garbage when looking for information about a case. Some private investigation companies specialize in “trash hits.” Even in areas where dumpster diving has been made illegal, the police are still allowed to sift through trash. Businesses occasionally try to discourage dumpster diving by pouring laundry detergent or bleach over discarded waste in their trash bins. Prospective trash pickers should be aware of this practice. The film Dive! is a documentary made by Jeremy Seifert in 2010, which addresses the culture of waste in the United States. It follows a group of dumpster divers around Los Angeles as they retrieve perfectly edible food and other useful items from trash bins all over the city. In a much-quoted statistic, 96 billion tons of food is sent to the landfill every year in

America. The film provoked a fair bit of response and has done a good job of making people think more deeply about the current system where surpluses are generated just to be discarded, and people on the street are still going hungry. And, oddly enough, dumpster diving has become fashionable lately. There are web resource sites all over the Internet that provide tips and tricks to would-be divers, and frugal-living people from Brooklyn to Minneapolis can find local knowledge at their fingertips. Utah State University even sponsors a fashion show put on by students who create outfits from completely recyclable or recycled materials. —Alice Toler


years ago. At the time Matt Del Porto was a high school student growing up on the east side of Salt Lake. A kid trying to find his place in the world, Del Porto started making new friends outside of his neighborhood. He hung with punks, activists and artists. Soon, he learned about dumpster diving. Since that time, Del Porto has become Salt Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest diving advocate. Once a month, he leads hands-on workshops, guiding newbies around to his favorite bins. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unthinkable practice in most cities. Good turf is a closely held secret among most of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s divers. But, in friendly Utah, sharing the best bins seems natural. Curious to learn all I could before joining Del Porto on his rounds, I dug up an essay by Texas writer Lars Eighner. A quintessential text on the

Groups such as Food Not Bombs use â&#x20AC;&#x153;food recoveryâ&#x20AC;? as a way to fight poverty, collecting excess food and putting it to use. subject, On Dumpster Diving, Eighner authored the essay during a period of homelessness he experienced on the streets of Los Angeles in the 1980s. His writing reveals the ethos, habits, quirks and gritty or simply functional details behind diving. I was reassured by Eighnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s observation that â&#x20AC;&#x153;even respectable employed people will sometimes find something tempting sticking out of a Dumpster.â&#x20AC;? Maybe I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be so out of place. But, Eighner clarified, being willing to eat from the dumpsters â&#x20AC;&#x153;separates the dilettanti from the professionals.â&#x20AC;?

without a doubt, a professional. Young and bearded, a safety pin through one earlobe, wearing a tshirt and cut off jeans, he looks like my idea of an anarchist dumpster diver. Pulling his bike up at our meeting spot I notice a crate strapped behind his saddle, filled with plastic bags and a backpack and a very bright flashlight. Seven of us have gathered for this latenight foray. The other newbies look young, maybe college freshmen. Four of the five are girls. They wear jeans and hoodies and have long, blond hair pulled back into ponytails. They all seem so normal. I secretly doubt these clean-cut college students will actually eat food from a dumpster. Matt splits our large group up into two—increasing our stealth factor. One group takes the Sugar House loop. Myself, Del Porto and one other female diver follow the downtown loop, lured by the possibility of nuts, produce, fish and chocolate. We perform a slow pedal-by of our first dumpster after spying a group of cops. Diving isn’t technically illegal. But, some divers have been known to earn trespassing charges. Parking our bikes at our first site, my new partner wrinkles her nose unconsciously as she peers into the dark container. I look down at my open clog shoes and nice pants. “By

Local short video on dumpster diving: Trashed Each day, people in the US throw away enough trash to fill 63,000 garbage trucks. This Spyhop production by students Mallory McDaniel, Conner Estes and Jon Tatum, takes a look at a group of people, commonly referred to as freegans, who take recycling to the next level through dumpster diving, community farming, upcycling and repurposing. “Trashed” follows the daily lives of Salt Lake City freegans as they explain their anti-consumerist ways in our proconsumerism country. 2011. The makers of “Trashed” are waiting on a verdict from the Sundance Film Festival regarding the 2013 festival’s shorts program. We’ll let you know in the January CATALYST if and where you can see it.

Continued from page 11:

far the best way to go through a Dumpster is to lower yourself into it,” advises Eighner. Del Porto hasn’t read the essay, but he is a professional. I offer to hold the flashlight. Del Porto jumps in. “I have found tons of dried fruit and boxes of cereal,” Del Porto had told me during a conversation the

Divers understand better than anyone the transience of material and the abstract nature of value. week prior. “An egg cracks in a carton and the store has to pitch the whole dozen. There are arbitrary expiration dates or something accidently gets left out of the fridge or frozen section. It thaws and they have to throw it away.” Now, Del Porto is handing out loaves of French bread. He pulls up some miscellaneous fish parts and puts them into a bag. Hands them out, too. Tonight, we find lots of trash, only a little food. Sometimes there are other things: bike frames, computer parts, art supplies, shelving units, wood, furniture, clothing. Sometimes, finding so many things can make a hoarder out of a diver. At the same time, as Eighner eloquently points out, divers understand better than anyone the transience of material and the abstract nature of value. “Diving changed my attitude towards what is useful and what is not,” says Del Porto. “I pick up


stuff on the ground and wonder if it has a use.” A bag of cat food, useless to Del Porto, becomes a gift to a friend and cat-owner. A huge score of bread gets divided among his friends. Within half an hour we have scoured the entire bin and retrieved half a dozen loaves of bread, but not much more. Most of the waste remains neatly stacked in a corner of the dumpster. Larger pieces that we took out to make the job easier, we replace. Then, we close the bin lids. “Leave no trace,” says Del Porto proudly. “It’s not just a Boy Scout motto.” For another hour and a half hours we search the depths of two more bins. Our final dive reveals a box full of under-ripe tomatoes and another of wilted lettuce and flatleaf Italian parsley. Around mid-night we call it quits and pedal back to Del Porto’s house, the rendezvous point. The other divers arrive and we begin the ritual of dividing the spoils. All of our finds go on the kitchen counters. There are: burritos, salsas, mini-cheesecakes, cheeses, tons of bread, a bunch of chard, celery, tomatoes, strawberries, apples, bananas. Looking over our stash with supermarket eyes I find the apples small and bruised, the bananas under-ripe, the strawberries verging on

slimy. Two of the girls grab the red fruit excitedly making plans for smoothies. The newbies filling Del Porto’s kitchen go about the work with vigor. Quickly, they claim the prepared foods. The containers, still covered with mystery juice from the bottom of the various dumpsters, get washed in the sink. Finally convinced that these kids indeed intend to eat the food, I can’t hold myself back from the big question: why. “I’m in school and I’m out here on my own,” offers up the soft-faced, curly-haired boy. I push him little more. Does it have anything to do with the current economy? “Yeah, I guess,” he says, thinking. “Since the recession, my parents haven’t had enough money to help me much.” One of the blond girls joins in. “It’s nice to save money,” she offers. “And, it’s fun.” Riding away from the house a little later, I contemplate my shopping trip. Balanced on my handlebars are two grocery bags of tomatoes I plan on canning in the morning. There is some wilted chard that will end up in my compost after sitting in the fridge for another week. The crusty bread will go to the chickens. It has been the longest and least successful shopping trip of my life. I am exhausted. In a way, I am grateful to those who chose to reclaim discarded food. It’s recycling at its most extreme. And, while I didn’t see too much needless dumping in Salt Lake’s bins, there is no good reason that any food should go to waste. But, reflecting on my night and the ample grocery money in my bank account, I decide to leave dumpster diving to the professionals, whether they be anarchists, artists or college students. u Katherine Pioli fights fires in the summer, raises heritage fowl in the 9th & 9th area, and writes for CATALYST.

Boulder Mountain Zendo changes name to Two Arrows Zen Center (TAZ) Boulder Mountain Zendo, formed in Torrey, Utah in 2007 and expanding to Salt Lake's ArtSpace on Pierpont in 2010, was named after the mountain in Wayne County. This month, the name is changing to Two Arrows Zen Center (TAZ). The name comes from a koan about "two arrows meeting in mid-air," indicating the relationship of absolute and relative views. The change was decided upon to eliminate the misperception by many that the center was based out of Boulder, Colorado. "Everything else remains the same," says Musho Hamilton Sensei, who cofounded the group with her husband, former Utah Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael Mugaku Zimmerman Sensei: "—morning sits, the occasional day of Zen, and three weeklong intensive retreats each year."

January 2013




by Alice Toler, Greta deJong and Jane Laird

n the 30 years that have passed since CATALYST began, the valley has changed profoundly. Salt Lake City has opened coffee shops, brew pubs, and gourmet restaurants. It has welcomed immigrants and refugees from all over the world, produced writers and artists of international renown, and begun to wrestle with the fundamental issues of environmental conservation and public health. We are the melting pot of the Great Basin, a place where practicality, spirituality and creativity all meet and mingle to create a unique essence. Out-of-towners, expecting a monoculture, are constantly surprised by the vibrancy they find here. Congratulations, then, to our 100 catalysts. You have made our city, our state, and the wider world a better, kinder, more fun and more gracious place to live. We honor you, and the many we couldn't fit on this list who have helped you. Here's to another 30 years—and more!—of evolution.


Caru Das Adhikary

Sandy Anderson

Pete Ashdown

When you think about Utah and religion, you think about…the Krishnas? It’s true, though. Spanish Fork's Sri Sri Radha Krishna temple hosts the biggest Holi festival celebration in the Western hemisphere every year in the spring, and throughout the year free yoga and meditation classes are available. Regular Hindu services are held year round and at a sister temple in Salt Lake City. The president and founder of both the Utah Krishna temples, Caru Das has been responsible for expanding the cultural diversity in this state and making it, quite literally, a much more colorful place to live.

Anderson is a poet in her own right. But over the past 40 years she has also made her legacy as a catalyst for other writers. She began organizing poetry readings and workshops in 1965 while still in high school. In the '70s she began a reading series called Word Affair, which morphed into City Art, and guided that organization for two decades. It continues to this day, with monthly readings at the Main Library.

This quiet and unassuming guy is the founder and CEO of Utah’s first independent and oldest Internet service provider, XMission, and also happens to be one of its first rave promoters. Back in 1992 Ashdown and two friends threw the state’s first rave at a recently closed club space downtown, spending the night in the DJ booth fending off requests for the Smiths and Depeche Mode in order to introduce electronic dance music to

Rocky Anderson Salt Lake has had liberal mayors for the past several decades, but even so, electing Rocky was a stretch. Always outspoken, Rocky held true to his colors throughout his tenure, leading the national campaign to impeach George W. Bush, and taking a strong environmental stance for his patch of turf. He put Salt Lake City on the map for sustainable practices, and brought the rest of the nation to notice that not all of Utah is lock-stepped Mormon and Republican.

Cosmic Aeroplane/Steve Jones, founder


he Cosmic Aeroplane Bookstore, 1967-1991, connected Salt Lake to the San Francisco youth scene and all things progressive, from poetry and eastern philosophies to modern music, metaphysics, psychedelics and underground comix. A killer bulletin board, many talented employees and sponsored events helped make the Aeroplane the place for seekers heading off the beaten track. It provided space for band practice, theatre groups and draft resistance counseling. Sometimes an initiator of cultural change, always emblematic of changes taking place in the '60s and '70s, the Cosmic became a central establishment during the '80s and spawned a whole new breed of businessperson, including Tony Martinez/Blue Boutique; Smokey Koelsch/ Smokey's Records; Camille Chart/Chameleon; Brad Collins/Raunch Records; Jon Bray/Cinema in Your Face and Dr. Volts Comics; Ken Sanders/Dream Garden Press and Ken Sanders Books; Robert Firmage/Fifth World Books; and others. Its final (and most famous) digs, mid-'70s-on, were on First South between 2nd and 3rd East—above the Blue Mouse, a small basement movie house which is an ancestor of the Salt Lake Film Society; and below the original office of KRCL-FM90.9.

the local populace. Ashdown also challenged well-entrenched state senator Orrin Hatch in 2006, running a tight campaign on very little cash, and championing copyright reform and sensible policies regarding technology. He is also a philanthropist, supporting many local nonprofits by providing internet service.

Pat Bagley The Salt Lake Tribune’s worldclass political cartoonist has been lampooning those in charge since 1977, when Time Magazine picked up Bagley’s first published cartoon, which he had submitted to the BYU student newspaper only weeks before. He is presently syndicated in over 450 American newspapers and is regularly honored by various editorial cartoon indexes. He is the author of several books of satire, and also several children’s books.

D’ana Baptiste Baptiste, yoga teacher, trainer and founder/owner of the 10year-old Centered City Yoga as well as the nonprofit yoga outreach Yogis in Service, holds the distinction of receiving the most nominations for the CATALYST 100. Her thriving practice on 9th & 9th has a hip vibe that attracts students who not only love her but believe her work changes lives.

Brian Barnard

As Utah’s preeminent civil rights litigator, Barnard devoted himself to protecting the rights of marginalized or unpopular groups. Among his diverse clients he represented polygamists, dissident Mormons, the Navajos of San Juan County, and women excluded from the Alta Club and the state’s Elks Lodges. He advanced the cause of civil rights more than any other individual Utahn. Barnard’s tactics made sure that the status quo was always being reexamined. Barnard unfortunately passed away in September 2012. We miss him.

Lauren Barros

Gays and lesbians entering parenthood face special challenges, especially in Utah. Barros' full service law firm makes that road a bit smoother by advocating the use of contract law for custody of a child where domestic partnership, in loco parentis, and de facto parenthood, are not recognized.

Charlotte Bell

Along with Jay Jones, Bell transited yoga in Salt Lake City from an esoteric and closeted practice to the socially acceptable status it enjoys here today. She has been teaching yoga and meditation consistently since 1986. She also writes a yoga column for CATALYST and has published books on the subject.

Vicki Bennett

Bennett, SLC’s director of the Office of Sustainability (and former Environmental Programs man-

ager) has been integral in setting environmental policy to help create a more livable community. She and her team have been integrating environmental management, air quality, transportation issues, carbon management, recycling, and green waste diversion into our laws and lifestyle.

Turner C. Bitton

Bitton has been an activist since his high school days, cutting his teeth as a recycling advocate. He was president of the Weber State Gay-Straight Alliance and worked for the passage of a non-discrimination policy in Ogden. He is now working to set up a recycling program in Farr West, and is founding an organization called Queer Animal Rights Advocates.

John Bolton

Salt Lake Roasting Company, founded by Bolton in 1981, was the city’s first artisan coffeeshop. It was opened in an era when most people didn’t think that you could make a living selling coffee in this town, but it quickly became a social hub and an indispensable part of the city fabric. Part of his recipe for success is really fantastic desserts and a short but well-done menu.

Melissa Bond

When Bond arrived on the scene in 1995, the tiny blonde 25year-old provoked the passionate instincts in a younger, predominantly male crowd of wanna-be poets as she introduced the concept of the slam— poetry performed, usually in cafes and coffee houses, with judges and a vocal audience. Called “fascist dwarf” and “poetic cherub,” Bond ran the outfit for three years. Salt City

Slam continues to this day (under the notable influence of Jesse Parent), with Salt Lake poets participating —and placing—in national slams.

Nancy Borgenicht

Nancy Borgenicht has been part of the Salt Lake Acting Company (SLAC) since 1974 in the roles of actor, playwright, producer and director. In 1978, she created Saturday's Voyeur, a musical send-up of life in Utah. The show was a hit, and has been reprised mostly annually. Since 1992, Borgenicht (along with Allen Nevins) writes fresh scripts under the same title and theme. The locally famous parody continues to play to packed houses, and has become emblematic of the humor to be found in the Mormon/non-Mormon divide in Utah and the occasional bridges built.

Roger Borgenicht

As the force behind ASSIST, a community design center that provides development assistance to nonprofit and community groups, Borgenicht continues to remind politicians, planners and architects that people make the community, and architecture must keep people's needs at the forefront. He has been a constant champion for reasonable transportation solutions along the Wasatch Front as well as encouraging higher density development in order to reduce overall transportation needs.

Betsy Burton

Burton has been an advocate for local business since she started The King’s English Bookshop (with Ann Berman) in 1977. In 1997, Burton and several other Salt Lake small business owners formed the Vest Pocket Coalition to

pressure the City to change its tendency to focus on bringing chain stores to town. While Vest Pocket worked well as an advocacy group, Burton felt an organization focusing on public education was needed. So in 2006, Burton (with David Nimkin) started Buy Local First Utah, which has now grown to more than 4,000 local business members. She is also active in both the American Booksellers Association and the American Independent Business Alliance.

Ian Brandt

In 1998, Brandt began serving from the Greens Vegetarian food cart at the farmer’s market and other SLC locations. The following year, he opened Sage’s Café, and provided our city with a great organic, locally sourced vegetarian restaurant. Since then he has opened the Vertical Diner in South Salt Lake in 2007, and Cafe SuperNatural at Trolley Square in 2011. In 2009 he opened Cali’s Natural Foods grocery.

Angela Brown

People from out-of-state are often surprised by the deep legacy of punk and anarchism in the heart of Utah. SLUG magazine has been both promoter and chronicler to the scene since its inception in 1989. Brown has published the magazine since 2000. Under her tenure, SLUG has launched a highly interactive website and continued to cover the local and national underground music scene. Brown has branded the Localized music festival, the SLUG Games ski and snowboarding series, and the Summer of Death skateboarding series. In 2009

she launched the highly popular local alternative artisan’s festival, Craft Lake City.

Alex Caldiero

Sicilian-born New Yorker, poet, musician, and Mormon—the “word shaker” Alex Caldiero has never lived quietly and has never been easy to define. He is arguably the father of avant-garde performance poetry in Salt Lake City, though he lives in suburban Orem and identifies strongly with the Mormon faith. He is a bridger of gaps and a dancer through voids and an inspiration to many. He teaches as a Poet/Artist in Residence at Utah Valley University, where he vexes and enlightens his students.

Jeff Clawson

Did you know the father of modern emergency dispatch is a doctor from Murray? After years of experience, Dr. Clawson began to develop a set of emergency medical protocols for 911 dispatchers. The use of this system has now spread throughout the U.S. and internationally to Canada, Europe, and China, and the protocols have saved countless lives.

Wendy Christensen

A founding member of both the Element 11 board of directors and the Hive Collective, Christensen is a tireless promoter of quality underground electronic dance music. She and her colleagues have brought acts from all around the nation to our fair city, proving that there’s a lot more to the Salt Lake underground music scene than punk.

Norm Cohn

Cohn, a bodyworker, lawyer and psychologist, arrived in Salt Lake City in the mid-1980s, fresh from France (and before that, six years in India) where he’d been living and teaching. It's hard to believe now, but at that time massage was an edgy profession. In 1986 Cohn organized other therapists in the community to pave the

1987, he opened the Utah College of Massage Therapy. The Myotherapy Institute followed later that year. Now, there are over 20 massage schools in Utah.

Eric Cole In 2001, Cole opened Underfoot Floors, the Salt Lake valley’s first Earth-friendly building supply store. Since then such products have become available in many mass market stores, but it was Underfoot Floors that pioneered this movement here and offered products to early adopters. The business continues to provide friendly service and top-ofthe-line flooring solutions.

Adriane Colvin The effect of Burning Man culture here in Salt Lake City is often unseen, but it is just as profound as the punk scene in creating the unique psychosocial melding of opposites you find here in the valley. As a longtime regional contact for the Burning Man organization, Colvin helped produce the regional event which was first known as SynOrgy and later on as Element 11. She was drawn to learn how to dance with fire during this time, and has been an advocate of fire dancing and aerial dancing on the local scene ever since. She founded Fire Muse Circus in 2004, and has been an instructor at Aerial Arts of Utah since 2010.

Walter Cottam The notion of conservation was introduced to Utahns in the 1940s by University of Utah botany professor Dr. Walter Cottam, changing land practices among farmers and ranchers for the better. His botanical and advocacy work was important in laying the groundwork and securing the land for a state arboretum (designated by the legislature in 1961) and for what has become an

indispensable part our community, Red Butte Garden and Arboretum.

Raphael Cordray Cordray is a “radical cheerleader” and the founder of Free Speech Zone, which provides a connecting point for activists to meet and share information. The store also includes an anarchist lending library and a gift shop featuring sweatshop-free local- and union-made products. Cordray has been involved with Occupy SLC and the local Rainbow Family. She is a proponent of DIY and freeganism and an advocate of gender equality.

Christine Cushing Honored for her advocacy work for the Utah Public Employees Association, Cushing explains her ideal is that of enthusiastically participating in the political process and negotiating agreement on pragmatic solutions. What differentiates her efforts is physically meeting with state employees, actively listening to their concerns, and then communicating these effectively to policy makers to affect positive change in the greater community. Cushing is also on the founding board of the University of Utah LGBTQA Alumni Association and appointed a member of SLC Public Advisory Committee.

Babs DeLay DeLay has spent many decades serving both the city and the LGBTQ demographic. She served as Planning and Zoning commissioner from 2003 to 2011 and hosted a “women in music” program on KRCL for 27 years. She presently serves on the advisory board of the Utah Coalition Against Sexual

THE CATALYST 100 Assault, and is past President of the Rape Recovery Center. She has produced The Vagina Monologues along the Wasatch Front for almost two decades, and as a spiritual counselor she has provided mentoring and many hours of volunteer work for the Utah butch/femme and transgendered communities.

Tim DeChristopher “Bidder 70” made the national news when he disrupted a BLM oil and gas lease auction of 116 parcels of land in Utah’s red rock country in December 2008. Arriving at the auction from a class at the University of Utah, DeChristopher took up paddle number 70 and entered the bidding, eventually “purchasing” 22,500 acres and putting a halt to 11th-hour leases that would have been granted under the outgoing Bush administration. The auction itself was later found to be illegitimate, but DeChristopher still faced a possibility of 10 years in prison. This act of civil disobedience and the following trial brought climate change concerns to the fore and highlighted the way that the oil industry was being allowed to “regulate” itself by paying staffers to fill volunteer positions at the BLM involved with processing leasing permits.

Catherine DeVries Dr. DeVries has been working since 1992 to address the enormous need for patient care and professional training in urology in developing countries. Her organization, IVUmed, provides pediatric and reconstructive urology, urologic oncology, and women’s health services and has built

surgical training programs all around the world. Her organization provides outreach consultation and patient education materials for local underserved populations as well, including the Native American and urban community health centers.

Geralyn Dreyfous

of the Utah Arts Alliance, he has arranged and hosted charity fundraisers for many years, and provides space and resources for many up-and-coming artists. Then there is the fact of his Diversity Ball: Salt Lake is home to the world’s largest disco ball, built by Dyer.

Eccles Family

The founder of the Utah Film Center, Dreyfous has also produced Academy Award winning films at the Sundance Festival and is a charter member of the Utah Coalition for Film and Media. The Utah Film Center provides free community screenings, outreach programs, and visiting artists and professionals.

Maureen Duffy Boose (Aisling) Aisling, as she is known by her “craft name,” has been an active leader in the Salt Lake City Pagan and Gay communities for more than 20 years. She is a champion of alternative thought and former National President of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans.

Kim Duffin As assistant director of the Salt Lake City Arts Council for 25 years (and for four years previous as program manager at the Utah Arts Council), we’d consulted Duffin re. the CATALYST 100. It was not until he died in November that we realized he, himself, belonged here. At his wake we heard countless stories of how Duffin encouraged and assisted artists at every level, from writing grants to hanging shows. He also served on the boards of the Utah AIDS Coalition and the Utah Wilderness Alliance. We miss you, Kim.

Derek Dyer Dyer is a leading arts advocates in Salt Lake City. The founder

In 1863, a bewildered and impoverished 16-year-old Scottish boy named David Eccles arrived in Salt Lake City. Some 150 years later, his heirs and descendants have graced Salt Lake City and Utah as a whole with programs in the arts and culture, scholarships, community building efforts, health care, and preservation and conservation via an assemblage of granting foundations.

Francis Fecteau Italian-born and raised in upstate New York, Francis Fecteau came to Salt Lake City to give us all a lasting lesson in wine. This wine broker extraordinaire interfaces between wineries and the State of Utah to aid in the promotion and distribution of great wines from all over, and he teaches wine-tasting classes as well. He has brought organic and biodynamic wines to the state, and his Libation brokerage supplies the city’s most discerning restaurants.

Bob Farrington Farrington has helped create organizations and events that are now popular Utah institutions. As founding executive director of the Downtown Alliance of Salt Lake City, he spearheaded the creation of the Downtown Alliance Farmers Market, Salt Lake Music Festival and the Downtown Dine O’Round. In addition to supporting the local economy, these efforts have helped downtown Salt Lake and Utah become an even more attractive, creative place to live. He is currently the city’s economic development director.

From a humble beginning as an illegal immigrant from Mexico in 1985, Fiero now owns one of the most successful local pre-packaged food businesses in Salt Lake City. He began selling his precooked pinto beans at the downtown farmer’s market in 1997 after being appalled by the poor quality of canned beans available in the grocery store, and opened a formal business after receiving a micro enterprise loan later that year. Rico Brands now employ 45 people and provide over 125 products to outlets throughout the Intermountain west, and has spawned a restaurant, Frida Bistro. Fiero is a philanthropist and an activist in his community, inspiring others and donating to the Utah Food Bank and the United Way. He is open about his origins, investing in immigrant and refugee integration in Utah and advocating for sensible immigration policy.

Frost provides the public face of Troy Williams’Sister Dottie S. Dixon. Sister Dottie is an activist Mormon mother with a gay son, whose struggles to square her love of the church with her love for her son grew from a small radio bit on KRCL to a full theater production, The Passion of Sister Dottie S. Dixon, in 2009. Frost was awarded “Actor of the Year 2009” by the Deseret Morning News for his depiction of Sister Dottie, who is far more than just a standup drag character. She is adored by both gays and progressive Mormons, and she addresses the issue of gays in the Mormon church in a manner that is both touchingly human and wildly hilarious. Our culture is the better for having her with us.

Victoria Fugit Without Victoria Fugit, there would likely be no CATALYST magazine. A Utah native,

Fugit moved to San Francisco in the '60s where she lived and worked with pioneers of the New Consciousness movement, including Alan Watts. She returned to Salt Lake in the late '70s and with Greta Belanger, hatched the idea for CATALYST. The two worked side by side on the first eight issues of the magazine. Fugit’s artistic influence, vision, knowledge of environmentalism and metaphysics (at that time, at polar opposites in Utah) set the direction for the curious path that CATALYST has forged ever since. See more, p. 6.

Dr. Christina Gallop This outstanding and compassionate woman is the medical director of Wasatch Homeless Health, the Fourth Street Clinic. After college she became inspired to work in public health during the HIV outbreak in Los Angeles in the mid-’80s, and entered medical school at age 27 to pursue her passion. Her work with the homeless is grounded in love and empathy. She advances her belief in the power of education by serving on the board of the Guadalupe School.

Karrie Galloway CEO of Utah’s Planned Parenthood Association, Galloway has been a tireless advocate for women’s health in the state. Under her administration, the PPAU has become valued as a center for educating people about their bodies, defending reproductive rights, and providing valuable public health services for everyone, including the poor and uninsured.

Pearl Garff Five decades of Salt Lake children have called her "Miss Pearl," and she has inspired them to live their dance. She is the co-founder the Life Arts Center, a school of the integrated arts for children where, along with dance and music, you may find educational kinesiology, NLP and other innovative learning techniques.

Bobby Gittins Wikipedia's entry on “herding cats” notes that refers to “an attempt to control or organize a class of entities which are uncontrollable or chaotic.” The task of an active Burning Man regional contact is just such an assignment, and Gittins is of the rare type that excels at it. In addition to his

work as RC, he has been chief effigy builder for five years at the Element 11 regional event, and his calm and stalwart mentorship has shepherded multiple art projects into existence both in Utah and at Burning Man in Nevada. He has been integral in helping Utah become a noted presence at the event, and in helping Utahns foster a compassionate and artistic culture among themselves.

Stephen Goldsmith The founder of Artspace and an associate professor at U of U’s College of Architecture, Goldsmith also served as planning director for Salt Lake under Rocky Anderson. The artist’s sensibility he brought to the project led him to begin turning Utah’s capital into a resident-friendly, ecology-friendly area. He is involved in Jane’s Walks, the Temporary Museum of Permanent Change, and is an avid fan of downtown Salt Lake’s City Creek—the actual waterway, that is.

Rev. Tom Goldsmith Goldsmith has served as the minister of the First Unitarian Church in Salt Lake City since 1987—an outspoken institutional force committed to safeguarding the rights of all people, defending free speech throughout the community, and working diligently for a world at peace. Goldsmith heads the church's Environmental Ministry Team, which participates in recycling, composting and gardening, as well as actions supporting legislation such as the Red Rock Wilderness Act. Goldsmith launched the popular Jazz Vespers program in 1989 and a Folk Vespers series a few years later. He has become a regular fixture at peace demonstrations and other human rights events.

Diane Musho Hamilton Zen practitioner and spiritual teacher Diane Musho Hamilton was the first Director of the Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution for the Utah Judiciary, where she established mediation programs throughout the court system. Mediation is often faster, less expensive, and preserves for the parties to a dispute the poten-

tial to retain their relationship once the process has ended. Hamilton was also among the first in SLC to hold journaling workshops 20 years ago, setting many on a life course to writerly self-reflection.

Gordon Hanks Hanks’ multi-award-winning GAM Foundation has done more than any other organization to make Utah a home for jazz and jazz education. The foundation, established in 1994, has brought many jazz luminaries to Salt Lake City and has contributed over $1 million to local schools and universities in the form of programs and scholarships. The GAM Foundation also sponsors monthly jazz concerts at the Salt Lake Valley youth detention center.

Alan Hebertson and Dieter Sellmair Hebertson and Sellmair’s Coffee Garden entered the Salt Lake scene in 1993. Their house-of-all-things-caffeinated was a rousing success, and became The Place to go to meet and relax and hang out on 9th and 9th (along with your dog). A few years ago site and decor changed from funky comfortable on the north side of the intersection, to sleek on the south side (next to the Tower), but its classical soundtrack remains the same. Clientele continues to enjoy the locally (Logan) roasted Caffe Ibis beans.

Utah, has been working to raise awareness of the state of our air here along the Wasatch Front and its effect on children and the elderly. Through Michelle’s efforts and public outreach we have begun to make necessary changes to address air pollution in Salt Lake City.

Paul Holbrook Nobody knows the need for older people to remain physically active for their health quite like Paul Holbrook. He founded Age Performance, a training center for adults over 50 in 2005, where his outreach has transformed the lives of the people he works with, allowing them to achieve far greater health and independence than they knew they were capable of.

Stephen Holbrook Until his LDS mission to Hong Kong (and Chinatown, San Francisco) in 1961-1962, Holbrook’s life pointed to a future in conservative politics. His exposure to intense poverty during his mission, however, set him on another course. During his years working with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, he fought for civil rights. When he won a Democratic seat in the Utah House of Representatives, he focused on helping small business owners and farmers and restructuring the juvenile justice system (making it less institutional and more individualized and supportive). In 1980, he founded KRCL, Utah’s first and Salt Lake’s only community radio station. After one of United Front’s anti-Vietnam war protest received absolutely no coverage from the media, Holbrook felt an alternative outlet for dissenting opinions was needed in Salt Lake. Holbrook left his position as station manager in 1982, and until his retirement in 2004, he served as the executive director for the Coalition for Utah’s Future/Envision Utah, a group addressing urban growth and Utah’s environment.

Casey Jarman Director of the Twilight Concert Series, in 1988 Jarman created a cultural phenomenon that has changed the face of downtown Salt Lake City. Held on Thursday evenings in July and August, the series presents a wide range of outstanding musicians from all over. The enthusiasm that Utah audiences show for the performers, and the fun the performers have at the series, has created a great feedback loop that has brought Salt Lake to notice as a venue that performers don’t want to miss.

Ron Johnson Johnson is a multitasking catalyst. He was instrumental in organizing the Great Salt Lake Brine Shrimp Cooperative in 2006, enabling the local industry to survive against the threat of foreign competitors, and ensuring that shrimp from the Great Salt Lake are available as fish and shrimp food in the aquaculture industry worldwide. He has helped produce an online transformative culture magazine, EVOLVER.NET, for several years, and is working on a complementary currency project that would foster local economies by helping people set up time banking and trade work within their communities. He and his wife Brandie Hardman also run the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch, one of southern Utah's best backcountry lodges.

Anapesi Ka’ili Ka’ili was nominated for her passionate example of advocacy, activism and outreach for Pacific Islander youth and culture. As an Ethnic Studies instructor and Ph.D. candidate at the

THE CATALYST 100 University of Utah, and an organizer of the HYPE (Helping Youth Pursue Emancipation) movement, Tongan-American Ka’ili inspires Polynesian youth to break free of stereotypes through example and education. “My 14-year-old daughter urged me to submit her name,” wrote a CATALYST reader, “She was personally and powerfully touched by Anapesi’s work.”

Machiel Klerk Therapist Machiel Klerk had a dream, and that dream led to the founding of the Jung Society of Utah in 2009. Jungian psychology is a practical and intuitive tool for creating groundedness amidst the bewildering data-onslaught that our contemporary lives have become. Attendance at the Jung Society’s free lectures has only grown in the years since the society’s genesis.

Jonathan Krausert This semi-retired teacher of selfsufficiency has a small, high-yield urban plot that has been a catalyst of inspiration to all who have seen it. The gardening guru is on the board of Wasatch Community Gardens and is generous with his extensive knowledge of farming practices appropriate to our zone and urban locale.

Kyle LaMalfa LaMalfa started the People’s Market in Jordan Park in 2005. In 2011 he was elected as District 2 councilman. In addition to serving on many boards and commissions, he is co-chair of the Council on Urban Agriculture, promoting and protecting agriculture in urban environments and on the urban fringe.

Animal Sanctuary as a leader in the national no-kill movement (which would prevent shelters from euthanizing adoptable animals). Best Friends-Utah is currently the largest no-kill shelter in the country and is well on its way to making Utah the first no-kill state in the union.

Woman, Utahns for Ethical Government, Main Street Plaza Gay Kiss-In, Salt Lake Mayor’s Green Team (she was founding co-chair), Utah Society for Environmental Education, HEAL Utah, 1991 Walk for Life, Women Concerned, Utah/ Soviet Awareness Program, Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable and more. Most recently she and husband Jerry spearheaded Utah's Move to Amend campaign, which would reverse the Supreme Court's decision to grant personhood to corporations. Their group collected 11,251 signatures—4,110 more than required. (Watch for related story in an upcoming CATALYST.)

Vaughn Lovejoy Having been named previously as a CATALYST Catalyst, Lovejoy is still known here as the “King of the Arborphiles,” or even better: “The Mad Tree Planter.” His enthusiasm

Esther Landa Centenarian Esther Landa has seen a lot of changes in her lifetime, and she has always been a stalwart advocate for women’s rights in Utah and nationally. This past president of the National Council of Jewish Women and former president of the Salt Lake League of Women voters was presiding officer of Utah’s International Women’s Year in 1977. A small conference that year at the Salt Palace expected perhaps 300 feminists in attendance, and wound up attracting around 13,000 Mormon women and their children who came out to protest against the Equal Rights Amendment. Landa’s skills as a facilitator saved the conference from dissolving in the face of the riled up crowds, although unfortunately not even she could save the ERA. Landa has always stood firm that pay equality, sexual harassment, access to health care, day care, and birth control aren’t just women’s issues, they are family issues and human issues.

Ruth Lubbers The lives of people with disabilities, those in poverty or addicted to drugs, the homeless, teens, the elderly, and refugees have all been enriched greatly by the tenure of

Lubbers as executive director of Art Access. At the helm from 1993 to 2011, Lubbers created partner mentoring programs and workshop programs that brought the healing touch of art to everyone.

Montague's mission in life is to to share ideas and images originating from the natural world—to show us how we are, in fact, a part of nature, not separate from it. From 2003 until his retirement in 2010, Montague taught environmental science and wildlife technology at the University of Utah's biology department. There, he developed and taught Introduction to Environmental Science, Principles of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, Global Environmental Issues, Literature of Ecology and Principles of Ecological Gardening. Two of these were service-learning classes. Montague is undoubtedly responsible for a generation of university students' knowledge and understanding about our connection to nature. He is the author of Gardening: An Ecological Approach —a hand-lettered, illustrated practical guide to growing food, making communities more sustainable and addressing global environmental challenges.

Linda Myers house of the state. In July 2012 he resigned from the Utah Ski and Snowboard Industry Working Group in protest over Governor Herbert’s legislation asserting Utah’s right to control federal lands within the state, a state lawsuit seeking rights to thousands of disputed roads across federal lands, and the ill-conceived SkiLink project. Metcalf’s resignation, after 20 years of cooperating with three former Utah governors, is an indictment not easily ignored.

Bonnie Phillips In 1965, Bonnie and her husband Denis Phillips opened Phillips Gallery, featuring Utah artists and helping shape the development of art in Utah. Phillips Gallery is the oldest commercial gallery in the intermountain west, and has featured and promoted the works of many notable Utah artists. A recent retrospective featured Lee Deffebach, Irwin Greenberg, Waldo Midgley, Moishe Smith, Doug Snow, Harry Taylor, and Francis Zimbeaux.

South in December 1982. The bookstore gathered a devout following of regular customers and moved to its present location on 500 East in 1995. Under the management of the LaSalle family, but it still provides tools and information for personal and spiritual growth to customers in Salt Lake and the Intermountain west.

Adam Price In three years, Price made his mark on what formerly was called the Salt Lake Art Center. The name changed to the Utah Museum Of Contemporary Art (UMOCA). Total attendance rose to over 100,000 annually. Two new galleries opened inside the museum. The Art Truck was launched as an outreach vehicle. Two new two new curators came onboard who brought with them new nationally and internationally recognized artists. Price’s initial claim to artistic fame was as the host and instigator of Project 337.

Pilar Pobil One of our most successful CATALYST cover artists, Pilar has made her mark on Utah’s art scene as an accomplished painter and sculptor as well as community treasure producing Art in the Garden, an annual exhibit featuring local artists for 16 years with proceeds donated to Art Access for scholarships presented to local artists with special challenges.

Jerry Rapier Plan-B Theatre Company’s producing director took over from his predecessor in 2000, and has helped the company earn a reputation as bold and audacious, pushing back against the perception of Utah as a solidfronted bastion of homophobia. The company has made a name producing shows like “8”—a docudrama about the passage of Prop 8 in California and the federal constitutional challenge and historic trial that eventually overturned it.

Rapier made the list of Utah’s Top 25 Cultural Power Brokers in 2007, and in 2008 was given the Mayor’s Artist Award.

Steve Rosenberg Liberty Heights Fresh is a store with a vision. In 1992 it opened its doors to customers seeking the freshest local produce as well as gourmet foods from all over the world, and it has been pleasuring the palates of Salt Lake residents ever since. Rosenberg’s emphasis on high quality and organic foods has helped foster Salt Lake City’s emergence as a gastronomical destination.

Jude Rubadue Rubadue is a woman on a mission when it comes to food. She volunteers with the Avenues Fruit Share, making sure that fruit doesn’t go to waste from our old-growth orchard trees, serves on the board of Slow Food Utah, is a member of Mayor Becker’s Food Policy Task Force, and a founding co-signer on the SLC Farm Bill.

John Saltas In June 1984, the first issues of Salt Lake City’s monthly bar and dance club publication The Private Eye rolled off the presses. Saltas’ little magazine was mailed out to private club members, because at the time it was against state law for clubs to advertise. Thirteen years and several redesigns later, Private Eye had become the City Weekly, one of the area’s best alternative weeklies and an unflinching source for quality investigative journalism. Saltas oversaw the magazine for the first 19 years as pub-

lisher, and retook the helm in May of 2012. We consider him a brother.

Greg Schirf A Milwaukee boy, Schirf grew up in a town with several breweries and like all good Midwesterners, accepted beer as a sacred part of his culture. When he moved to Utah he was dismayed to find that there were no breweries in the state, and so set out to start one. Wasatch Brewery became Utah’s first active brewery since prohibition, and has been serving up the suds for over 25 years now. The brewery’s award-winning beers brought Utah to national notice, and Schirf put his newfound clout to good use in 1988 when he proposed a bill that successfully legalized brew pubs in this state. Thank you, Greg!

Deeda Seed Remember the LDS-owned Main St. Plaza kiss-in, the summer of 2009? Thank Seed for the foresight and creative imagination on that one, which furthered understanding and acceptance re. gay rights and the LDS Church. Seed has worked behind the scenes in Salt Lake politics for several decades now, creating consensus and focusing attention on a variety of controversial issues. Currently she is associate director of the Southern Utah Wilderness Assn. In 1992 she founded JEDI (Justice, Economic Dignity and Independence) for Women.

Naomi Silverstone Silverstone, a social work professor at the University of Utah, started a program to train

social workers as alcohol and abuse counselers that is still going strong 30 years later. For as long, she has taught Community Organization (come, all you rabble rousers). In the 1980s she organized the first Summer Institute in the Human Services which introduced cutting-edge healing approaches to staff, students and community; it ran till 2011. She began Technology Literacy for the Whole Family, a program to bridge the "digital divide" for kids attending schools in lowincome neighborhoods. Most recently, she is the instigator of Social Soup, a U of U lunchtime lecture series that includes, yes, soup.

Dov Siporin If laughter is the best medicine, then Siporin is a talented physician. His colon cancer is both inoperable and terminal, but Siporin has never succumbed to hopelessness. He founded a group called Team Tumor, and urged people out of their recliners in the chemo room to tackle footraces and marathons they never thought they could accomplish. His relentless cheerleading and outrageous sense of humor have inspired and enriched the lives of everyone he’s touched.

Gibbs Smith Smith first put Salt Lake on the map in 1969 with the University of Utah Press publication of his master's thesis on labor organizer, singer and hero of the common man, Joe Hill. Joe Hill was famously tried and executed (by firing squad on the land that is now Sugar House Park) in 1915 for a murder he may or may not have committed. The book did well for itself. Smith invested its earnings into a book publishing company, Peregrine Smith (now Gibbs Smith Publishers), which

specializes in arts-related books. Smith is a major supporter of the arts and is, himself, a highly regarded painter.

O.C. Tanner Obert C. Tanner, the youngest of 10 children born to the second wife of a polygamist, grew up to become one of Utah’s greatest philanthropists. He chaired the commission that planned the construction of Abravanel Hall, the Utah Art Center (now UMOCA) and the restoration of the Capitol Theatre, and he served on the Utah Symphony Board. His family foundation endowed the University of Utah the Tanner Humanities Center. Tanner gave more than 40 fountains to communities, hospitals, colleges, and universities. He funded the construction of the Adams Shakespeare Theater at Southern Utah University and the O.C. Tanner Amphitheater in Zion Canyon. He endowed more than a dozen lectureships, including the world-renowned Tanner Lectures on Human Values. Tanner died in 1993 but his legacy lives on.

Ray Wenger

Stephen Trimble One great thing about the West is how the geology offers itself up, giving the initiate an unparalleled view back into deep time, into the history of our planet. Trimble is just such a initiate, and his work as a writer, photographer, park ranger, museum director, narrator, and professor at the University of Utah has always honored this landscape. His work has kindled a similar inspiration in countless people who have encountered it, and advanced the cause of conservation in the Southwest compellingly and compassionately.

Jesse Walker

Nancy Tessman The woman responsible for building Salt Lake City’s nationally acclaimed downtown main library retired from SLC in 2006 after 30 years as a local book slinger. This visionary was originally hired at the age of 23 to be the library’s community relations director, and rose to become director of the library in 1996. In 1998 the city ratified an $84 million bond to build the library we have now, which is largely her brainchild. Tessman also started the Dewey Lecture Series, and co-created the Snowbird Leadership Institute to train new librarians. She recently returned to work for the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District in Washington.

Way more than just a spinner of tunes, this fun-loving DJ has influenced what Salt Lake City listens to for two decades. He exposed a lot of people to their first dose of house music at both prestigious city-sponsored events and underground raves. Walker’s diverse and spiritual sets have opened minds everywhere in the Great Basin and beyond, and he is always ready to help a beginner DJ along.

Marc Weinreich Sometimes the planet needs a lawyer.

In the role of environmental steward, Weinreich and his firm champion responsible hazardous waste site disposition and management and has won two EPA National Phoenix

Utah real estate broker, environmentalist and consumer advocate Wenger is known as “The Father of Buyer’s Agency in the US.” His work in the 1980s incorporated his knowledge of real estate and law to advance the idea that real estate buyers have the right to their own agent in transactions. Buyer’s agency is standard in all 50 states, and has become the norm, as a result of Wenger’s work. It is hard to imagine that, prior to this, only sellers had rights.

Congress to approve the dedication of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Her work on ecological and social issues has appeared in the New Yorker and the New York Times. Writing with passion and lyricism and drawing on her personal history in a family of downwinders during the above-ground nuclear test era, Williams has become a clear and steady voice for ecological consciousness and social change.

Anna West A public relations veteran of 14 years, West is also an accomplished artist, devoted to keeping the old craft skills alive. She volunteers with Craft Lake City, helps put together the Salt Lake City Fashion Stroll, and assists in performances by Transfusion and Hype Dance Company.

Steve Williams The kind voice of “Daddy-O” Steve Williams, KUER’s Jazz Director and on air host, has brought many Salt Lakers to a finer appreciation of the musical arts. Steve is at ease with all stripe of performer (shown here with the late jazz great Dave Brubeck.) He can be seen introducing international acts on any Salt Lake stage while covering his night shifts at the station. His love of the music as well as the people who make it resonates with his listeners and anyone who knows him. Thanks for the late night company, Steve!

Troy Williams Known as the Gay Mayor of SLC, Williams is not afraid to challenge the status quo. He organized three “kiss in” responses to Temple Square security’s handcuffing of gay couple Matt Aune and Derek Jones for kissing as they walked from North Temple to South Temple. He’s the executive producer of KRCL’s progressive talk show, RadioActive, and also director of community affairs at KRCL. We have Williams to thank in part for the hilariously game-changing character, Sister Dottie S. Dixon, which he has cowritten since her inception.

Rick Wray of Spyhop In 1999, Wray and Erik Dodd co-founded Utah's only not-for-profit youth media center, Spy Hop. That first year, they worked with 12 kids to produce one documentary.

ANIMALIA The Inner Light Institute

Pigs are people too! BY CAROL KOLEMAN actory farms use a common method for containing pregnant pigs: keeping them in enclosures called “gestational crates” (also known as sow stalls) which are so small that the pig cannot turn around, take a step, or even lie down on her side to sleep (as pigs do). This is pretty much the way it is for their entire lives, as factory farms keep their sows pregnant all the time.


The crate system costs 11% more per weaned pig than the community system, according to Iowa State University. Pork suppliers say these

crates prevent injury from fighting. However, others say this method causes more stress, pain and sickness than using larger, community enclosures which would allow movement and the opportunity for these highly social animals to have a more decent life. Other practices that reduce aggression include eliminating overcrowding, keeping littermates together, and providing bedding material as well as satisfying meals. The plight of the pig has yet to be taken up by the masses—perhaps because the most visible (and vocal) of us eat more chicken and beef than pork. Free-range pork has yet to have become a cause. Why is this? Animal behaviorists list pigs as tops in smarts among domestic animals, above cats and dogs. Pigs are similar genetically to us—which is why we use pig heart valves in human heart surgery. Pigs feel pain, fear and stress; as highly intelligent animals, they experience boredom and insanity caused by their living conditions, and they suffer as we do. There is positive change afoot, however. In the last three years, nine states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Rhode Island) and the entire European Union have enacted policies to phase out gestational crates.

We still have a long way to go. Here’s how you can make a difference:

Support suppliers who have taken a stand in favor of commmunity enclosures vs. gestational crates. • Maxwell Foods, one of the largest pork suppliers in the U.S., has gone to 100% “gc” free. • Cargill Foods is phasing out gestational crates and is at 50%. • Smithfield Foods, the largest pork supplier in the world, committed in 2007 to phase out gestational crates by 2017. They later recanted, but pressure from the Humane Society of the U.S. caused them to reinstate their 2007 commitment. • Hormell Foods has also committed a phaseout in 2017. • Chipotle, Whole Foods, Wolfgang Puck, Target and others only use gestation crate-free pork. • McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Subway, Kraft Foods (owner of Oscar Mayer), Kroger, Safeway, Costco, Denny’s, Jack in the Box, Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s, Sodexo, Sysco, Aramark, Compass Group, Heinz, Campbell Soup, Baja Fresh, Wienerschnitzel, and Harris Teeter, Winn—Dixie, Quiznos and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers have all announced that they will eliminate gestation crates from their supply chains.

Avoid Tyson and Walmart • Tyson Foods and Walmart refuse to acknowledge a problem and have made no demands on their suppliers re. gestational crates. Avoid them.

Tarot reading for CATALYST readers

Make every moment a work of art BY SUZANNE WAGNER

Osho Zen Tarot: Guilt, The Master, Morality Medicine Cards: Ant, Swan Mayan Oracle: Universal Movement, Etznab, Realm Shift Ancient Egyptian Tarot: The Hierophant, Five of Swords, Seven of Swords Aleister Crowley Deck: Art, Science, Queen of Wands hen we fall prey to fear, we forget to flow with natural laws. When we are in fear, we tend to believe con artists and others who would use us for their own gain. This month it is important to follow the harmony. Look beyond what your mind wants. Instead, move with the natural order of things. Do


not allow panic to override your rational sensibilities.

What you attune your attention to will grow and manifest. So notice where the majority of your attention is going. You live in a particular reality and you know how you flow. Allow that to gently move you into another place and time. Do not expect miracles overnight, even when you desperately need them. Stay conscious

and ahead of the game by paying attention to the signs and signals. Breathe into the force that infuses your life with movement. Know that many things take time to sprout, grow and blossom. When you are working for the greater whole, goodness penetrates every area of your life. This is a month to feel into how to create beauty in all aspects of your life. Listen and observe before initiating any new endeavors. Be like a geisha whose every movement is a work of art. Your life is also a work of art if you let it be. How can you make every moment something of beauty and grace? Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold tends to slow us down. As we move slowly, we become more aware of our surroundings. Listen to the body and move gently into the healing potentials that are asking for your attention. Nature is the key: Take time to stop and just be a part of the natural world. When we slow down and drop into nature, we become a part of something much bigger than our own mind or beliefs. That is especially helpful in situations we cannot control. The world is in an intense drama and many unstable scenarios are about to shift. You cannot fix everything. You can only do what you are called to do. You cannot be responsible for everyone and everything. It is a waste of energy and vital life force to take on emotional situations that you cannot change. If you can and you feel called, then you should follow that flow and inspiration. But if you cannot do that this

month, take care of your body and energy instead. Then wait for inspiration. You are in a paradise, if you would let go of striving and your achieving mind. How can you enjoy the beauty and love that is surrounding you right now if you are feeling guilty or hopeless? What you attune your attention to will grow and manifest. So notice where the majority of your attention is going. If you are always looking for the bad then that is what you will always see. But you can retrain yourself to place your attention on the things that are positive and beautiful. And your life will begin to reflect that light and love. What would it be like if we responded to every situation with that kind of awareness rather than reaction, beliefs, or conditioning? When you act from awareness you are present, objective, considering others, and looking for the best possible outcome for all concerned. How could you then feel guilty? You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. That is the point. In the cool and crisp air of winter, use the energy to be alert, aware and conscious. Then you will find amazing amounts of movement. Feel into the yearning of your soul. Allow that longing to stir you into movement. Keep moving toward the possibility within. It may take you a while. It may take you this whole life. But you will fulfill the potential that life entrusted you with. Have a wonderful 2013. u Suzanne Wagner is the author of numerous books and CDs on the tarot.
