The new Utah Flag has been out for a while now and of course people aren't happy about it. I believe it's a TON better than the old one! The old Utah Flag was INCREDIBLY BUSY! The old flag featured: A circle, two arrows, two American flags, "1896", "1847", "Utah", "Industry", Bees flying, An Eagle holding 6 more arrows, a beehive on a shelf, sego Lillies, all on a dark blue background. SO MUCH GOING ON!

The New state flag is much simpler. Dark blue skies, white mountains, red bottom representing the red cliffs in Utah, a star, and a beehive. But like I said earlier... People are still not happy with it.

HERE ARE SOME NEW IDEAS FOR A UTAH STATE FLAG:

THE FRY SAUCE FLAG:

Utah's most glorious commodity, FRY SAUCE! Throw that on a flag. That's something we can all agree on. The background is half red for ketchup, and half white for the mayonnaise, creating the glorious sauce that's home is Utah.

THE HONEY FLAG:

Here in Utah, we are the Beehive State. So, of course we have a beehive front and center. But there's also drippy honey from the top, all on top of a Utah Beehive!

MOUNTAINS, SKIES, VALLEYS:

This one has it all. The blue skies that you'll see everywhere (Besides Salt Lake City... Inversion), Utah Mountains lined in Gold, the red dirt that you'll see all over the state! Sign me up for this one!

BEE FLAG:

This flag is tough and feels like a team logo. It's also very simple too. It's all about the Bee and the hive behind it. Gold and black for the bees, and also for the gold found in Utah. Plus 1896 for the year we became a state.

GOLD TRAIN:

Again, another simple flag for our state. It's a gold flag representing the gold in the state as well as the Golden Spike that completed the first Transcontinental Railroad in Utah called the Pacific Railroad.

The PERFECT Places For Trader Joe's In St. George

Everyone has been begging for a Trader Joe's to land in St. George. To be completely honest... I wasn't one of them. I just figured it was another grocery store that sells the same stuff as every other store. Until this weekend.

This weekend I was in Las Vegas and my Aunt asked me to stop and buy her these cookies at Trader Joe's. So, I found one in Henderson and pulled up. I went inside and bought the cookies and NOW I'M A HUGE BELIEVER! BRING US A TRADER JOE'S!

These are the BEST LOCATIONS for Trader Joe's to land in St. George!

THE OLD APOLLO BURGER:

The beautiful thing about a Trader Joe's is that it's NOT huge on the inside. It's actually a pretty small little market, and this size could work. It's a little small, but I'll take what I can get at this point. It's right in town, and I think it would be packed all the time!

THE OLD BED BATH & BEYOND:

attachment-IMG_9133
loading...

This would be great! It's a lot bigger than most Trader Joe's, but it could definitely work! Also, I feel like the places that are in that shopping center by In-N-Out are struggling anyway. How long can a Best Buy & Kohl's TRULY survive in 2024? Trader Joe's would absolutely stay in business! We need it!

THE OLD PLANET FITNESS / HIVE THERAPY:

attachment-IMG_9207

This would be the ABSOLUTE PERFECT location for Trader Joe's in St. George. Unfortunately, Hive Therapy is now in that location, so maybe we can find them a perfect spot to move to, and Trader Joe's can fill that spot!

WHOA! This Place Has The Cheapest Gas In Town... BY FAR!

It's the holiday season, and we're all spending (probably) WAY TOO MUCH money! But suddenly, you realize your car needs gas. UGH! It's so expensive! In St. George the gas prices fluctuate from about $3.50 - $3.19... UNITL NOW!

Today, I found a gas station that is selling gas for WAY CHEAPER than everywhere else in town: The Shivwits Convenience Store on Highway 91. They're located at 5861 W Old Hwy 91, Ivins, Utah. The price of Regular Unleaded: $3.04!

This gas station is selling gas for at least $0.15 cheaper than ANYWHERE ELSE in St. George. Not only will you get cheap gas, but you'll also have one of the best views in all of Southern Utah. On Thursdays, they also have one-cent-per-ounce fountain drinks, and FREE Popcorn on Fridays!

At the Shivwits Convenience Store, they're also a smoke shop, and they sell handmade items, like Native beaded jewelry and Dream Catchers! They've been serving Southern Utah since 2014, and it's time we drop by and give them our business, and fill our cars up for MUCH CHEAPER than anywhere else in town!

Tuesday-Friday mornings around 8am, DJ & Aaronee will kickoff Battleship! It's as simple as calling in and taking a guess. If you get a HIT on the battleship, you get another guess. If you MISS, we're onto the next caller. Whoever has the shot that SINKS the battleship WINS THE PRIZE! So far, three prizes have been won on Cat Country Utah, but the big one is still there!

This is only ONE game that's played with DJ & Aaronee, and everyday a new game is played!

  • High Low- They pick a number 1-100. If you guess the number correct on the first guess, you win 10 prizes. A correct guess on the second guess, 9 prizes and so on. After each guess, we tell you if the number is HIGHER or LOWER. If there's no correct answer after 10 guesses, nobody wins!
  • Freakin' Liar- DJ & Aaronee take a caller and ask them a simple question. The caller decides to tell the truth or lie. After questions are answered, DJ & Aaronee say if the caller is telling the truth, or if they're a FREAKIN' LIAR! If you stump both the hosts, you win two prizes, if you stump one of the hosts, you win one prize. If you stump NEITHER of the hosts... you still win a prize.
  • Guessing Weight- On Friday mornings, DJ & Aaronee take a caller and ask them very simple questions about their life. After 90 seconds, they'll take a guess at how much you weigh. If the hosts are within 5 pounds of your weight, they win! You win a prize either way. Listeners can also text in what THEY believe the callers weight is, and if they're the closest guess, they win a prize.
  • What's That Movie?- All things movies. A quote from a movie, a song from a movie, characters from a movie, first caller to get the correct answer wins!
