Last week my mom and I were notified that my sister Stephanie was listed as one of Utah Valley's most beautiful people in the Utah Valley Magazine's Best of the Valley issue. Hooray!
But then we got to reading some of the other categories/winners and were somewhat disappointed. I mean, Best Cheap Eats went to Wendy's. Wendy's? Wendy's. Best One Stop Shop was Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart? Wal-Mart.
What am I not getting here?
We are better than this Utah Valley.
This shows the critical need we have of more than one source for illumination.
Thanks to a new website called the Utah People's Post information around our cities, valleys and state will be brought to a exciting new level. Basically the UPP will be using professional journalism, citizen journalism, local organizations to spread quality news throughout our state.
From Reflections Winners at your local elementary school to the Gubernatorial Race 2010. It will all be there, online, accurate and ready for you to read . . . or write yourself.
The UPP officially launches tomorrow (Monday, January 11, 2010). Check it out by clicking on the button below, or read about the ideas behind this new project here.
I am really excited about this, and I hope you will be too.
Pass it on!
Seriously, pass it on!
Your friends and neighbors need to know.
(I am not getting paid to share this information, I am just really excited!)
P.S. Best Cheap Eats in your opinion?
We'd take tacos at Diegos.
