"For me its all about the kids, literacy and everyday skills we take for granted, reading proficiency in 3rd grade changes lives. I serve as board member in Ogden to help bring people and business together to make Northern Utah a better place live. And, every dollar helps the communities we live in!" - Rhett K. Long, Publisher
