THE LIST OF NINE
BY MASON RODRICKC & MICHELLE L ARSON
CITIZEN REVOLT In a week, you can
CHANGE THE WORLD
‘CRAPPY’ FATHER’S DAY
Just think what an expression of love and devotion this would be. Here’s the perfect gift for Dad: his name on one of the Utah Arts Festival’s 80 on-site portapotties. This makes Dad an official Utah Arts Festival Friend Who Gives a Crap. Along with the personalized porta-potty, donors receive two tickets to the June 23-26 Utah Arts Festival and a mini commemorative porta-potty that doubles as a stress ball. All donations go to support the festival’s artistic programs. Library and Washington Squares, 200 E. 400 South, 801-322-2428, Thursday, June 23-Sunday, June 26, noon-11 p.m., $75 donation, UAF.org/Potty
KIDS EAT FREE PROGRAM
Nine ways to stay cool in the city this summer:
Take a dip in the bad water Raging Waters tosses in the dumpsters in the back.
8. Super secret, super cool tunnels underneath the city. 7. The drunk-tank floor can be quite soothing. 6. Stay cool by not following Gov. Herbert back on Twitter. 5. Wear sleeveless tops to church and take advantage of the icy sting of disapproval.
Relax in the din of rotating strangers behind the porta-potties at the Twilight concerts.
3. Collect beads of sweat accumulated from watching the guber-
natorial election race and place into a mister fan.
Use your college rejection letters to make an umbrella out of your dashed hopes.
1. Finally buy that curiously cheap deep-freezer off KSL.
Children 18 and under don’t need to go hungry during the summer months when school’s not in session. The Summer Food Program fills the food gap for many kids. No registration or application headaches—all you need to do is show up. Besides breakfast and lunch, the Utah Food Bank and Salt Lake Community Action and Head Start sponsor sites serve supper—and this year the Utah Food Bank is offering meals on Saturdays at select locations. Utahns Against Hunger, for the second year, is sponsoring a modest literacy program at three Summer Food sites in west Salt Lake City. Kids who attend the program at Jordan Park on Tuesdays, Sherwood Park on Wednesdays or Northwest Central Park on Thursdays will get a free book all summer long. Utah families can find nearby summer meal sites through the website, by texting FOOD to 877877, or by calling UAF. 200 locations in Utah, 1-800-453-3663, free, UAH.org/ Food-Assistance/Summer-Food
Sometimes, it seems like your elected officials are all about themselves—to hell with collaboration. Join Working with elected officials on water issues: What can collaboration bring to the table? to find out how you can open minds and conserve a precious resource. The panel includes former Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, Cache County water manager Bob Fotheringham and Utah Department of Environmental Quality executive director Alan Matheson. Facilitated small group discussions will help you participate in planning techniques.
