LDS Church Mass Resignation set for Saturday in Salt Lake City

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Aug. 12, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Organizers are predicting a turnout of 500 to 1,000 for Saturday’s annual LDS Church Mass Resignation.

And a lot of them will arrive in a state of fear and trembling.

“It’s really quite emotional for the people who are there,” said Steve Holbrook, an organizer of the recurring event, designed to support those in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who choose to resign their memberships.

“It’s always hard, right down to the wire,” Holbrook said. “We see people physically shaking as they sign the forms.

“For many, it’s just a big part of their lives people are going to walk away from. And for their friends and families who always hoped they would come back to the church, it’s the last nail in the coffin. It (resigning) is a hard thing to do.”

State Epidemiologist Resigns, Says State Officials Are Misleading Public



Dr. Megan Davies has been the state epidemiologist for eight years.

State Epidemiologist Megan Davies has resigned her position, effectively immediately. It is the latest twist in an ongoing dispute over coal ash contamination of home water wells and an inter-departmental fight within Governor Pat McCrory's administration.

In her resignation letter, Davies outlined the reason for her departure:

"I cannot work for a department and an administration that deliberately misleads the public," Davies wrote.

Davies is referring to an editorial, written by Tom Reeder, Assistant Secretary for the Environment at the Department of Environmental Quality, and Randall Williams, Deputy Secretary for Health Services at the Department of Health and Human Services, that sharply criticized Ken Rudo, a toxicologist who worked for Davies.

Mother, 62, arrested after son, 6, beat newborn sister to death

LARGO, Fla. (WFLA) — A 62-year-old woman who was artificially inseminated and gave birth to a baby girl 13 days ago, is now charged with her daughter’s death, after detectives say she left her 6-year-old son alone with the baby and he beat her to death.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri on Thursday outlined the disturbing details in the bizarre and gruesome case saying he’d “never seen anything like this.”

Kathleen Marie Steele, 62, was charged with aggravated manslaughter in connection with the death of her infant daughter, Kathleen Steele.

Gualtieri said that Steele had left the baby alone in a van with her six and three year-old sons while she went into a cell phone store to have her cell phone repaired.

GOP insiders: Trump can't win

'Trump is underperforming so comprehensively...it would take video evidence of a smiling Hillary drowning a litter of puppies while terrorists surrounded her with chants of ‘Death to America,’' said an Iowa Republican.

By STEVEN SHEPARD 08/12/16 05:03 AM EDT

Republican insiders are more convinced than Democrats that Donald Trump is so far behind Hillary Clinton that he can't win in November.

Roughly half of Republican members of The POLITICO Caucus — activists, strategists and operatives in 11 swing states — believe that Trump’s path to 270 electoral votes is basically shut off after another week in which the GOP nominee appears to have ceded ground in national and most battleground state polls.

Democrats, however, aren’t breaking out the champagne just yet. Seventy-two percent of Democratic insiders said despite Clinton’s clear advantage at this stage of the race, the presidential election isn’t effectively over.

Democrats cited the unpredictability of the 2016 campaign, along with some of Clinton’s own weaknesses, for their bridled optimism. It’s a message that fits neatly with what party leaders are saying publicly and behind closed doors: Don’t get too cocky, even with Clinton well ahead of Trump in the polls.

Bernie Sanders Slams Decision Not To Reclassify Marijuana

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) threw some shade at the Drug Enforcement Administration on Thursday.

The DEA announced it would end the federal government’s monopoly on marijuana cultivation, but to the disappointment of many drug reform proponents, the agency declined to reclassify pot from its list of “most dangerous” narcotics.

Sanders made clear on Twitter that he was among those dissatisfied with the decision not to remove marijuana from the federal government’s list of “Schedule I” drugs, where it sits alongside heroin and LSD. (Schedule I is the most severe category of illegal substances, referring to drugs with the greatest tendency for abuse and no known medical uses.)

Bernie Sanders ✔@SenSanders
People can argue about the pluses and minuses of marijuana, but everyone knows it's not a killer drug like heroin.
