Now, AI (Artificial Intelligence) can do JUST ABOUT anything! It can write this entire article if I asked it too. It can EVEN show us what St. George would look like if it was 40 miles to the Northeast... IN THE MIDDLE OF Zion National Park! How cool would this be? ENJOY THE RESULTS!

St. George High Schools Get Logo Re-Designs!

attachment-dixie d
loading...

I decided the logos here in St. George are pretty weak. I wanted to redesign each school's logos and bring some new life into the logos!

DIXIE:

loading...

Dixie Flyers. You get the D, you also get the Jet... I'm all for it. Plus, I wouldn't hate it if Dixie started going with the sky blue color to represent clear skies for their flying!

HURRICANE:

attachment-hurricane logo
loading...

I'm sorry H-town, but I HAD to change your colors! I already believe Hurricane's mascot should've been the Hurricanes, but since they're the Tigers, we're going to change the colors up! I'm not changing the colors for any school besides Hurricane. Let's go HEAD FIRST into the TIGER-feel. Black and Orange! Let's make it happen!

PINE VIEW:

attachment-pv logo
loading...

Not much change for Pine View, But they REALLY need to lean into the Maroon color. They've been going black and silver a lot, and that's a SNOOZEFEST! Maroon and black look SO GOOD together!

DESERT HILLS:

attachment-dh logo
loading...

This is simple, but I would love to see Desert Hills use their 3rd color, purple, a lot more! You could have so much fun using that purple. Purple jerseys, or shoes, or sweatbands. It looks awesome with that gold!

SNOW CANYON:

loading...

Snow Canyon High is home of the Warriors, but I feel like there's never any "Warrior" stuff going on! Where are the swords? Where is the armor? Warriors are SO COOL, but Snow Canyon doesn't do enough of it!

CRIMSON CLIFFS:

loading...

Crimson Cliffs is home of the Mustangs, so this is a no-brainer! Make the C's horseshoes!

Trader Joe's. Cheesecake Factory. Raising Canes. NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!

What would you LOVE to have here in St. George? The empty lot on the corner of St. George Boulevard and 100 West is BIG and READY for something the citizens of St. George are dying to have. Wednesday, the city announced that it would put out a "Request for Qualifications" on the lot. The vacant lot is 3.6 acres and is where the old Inn at St. George Motel sat for YEARS! The property was purchased by the city of St. George in 2016 for $1.6 million.

St. George Restaurants That Could EASILY Be A National Franchise!

attachment-farmstead franchise
loading...

Southern Utah is home to some AMAZING restaurants, and here's a list of some that I think could become the next BIG franchise!

1. Sakura:

attachment-sakura
loading...

Yes, hibachi restaurants already exist everywhere, but SAKURA has to be the best! Here in St. George, they ALWAYS have huge wait times. And for good reason! The food is awesome and the experience is fun! Bring Sakura across the nation! It deserves it!

2. Angelica's Mexican Grill:

attachment-Screen Shot 2023-02-08 at 8.13.02 AM
loading...

Angelicas USED TO BE Irmita's.. Which gets confusing because Irmita has opened "Irmita's" again... But trust me! Angelica's is SO GOOD! There's usually a line out the door! I LOVE their steak street tacos! Their sweet carnitas are also a hit with everyone. But they also have their Salsa Bar which compliments their food nicely. I still wish my favorite wasn't named "Wimpy Mild", but whatever. I'll take it! Let's franchise this place!

3. Durango's:

attachment-durangos
loading...

Yes, it's a knock-off of Cafe Rio, but I think it's better! I prefer Durango's over Cafe Rio and Cafe Rio's little brother: Costa Vida. Durangos quesadillas are superior, AND CHEAPER! Plus... They have a FANTASTIC Chicken Tortilla Soup! If you haven't tried it yet, go for it! I love me some Durangs!

4. Bishop's:

attachment-bishops
loading...

If you're into a mom & pop diner, look no further! BISHOP'S! When I was a kid it was a little Hole-In-The-Wall Diner, and my uncle would take me there on my birthday! I started going there again, as there's now two locations (in much cleaner locations) on both sides of town. I only get breakfast when I go there, but TRY THEIR SCONES! You'll be in heaven!

5. Farmstead Bakery:

attachment-farmstead
loading...

People in this town go straight BANANAS for Farmstead! If you've had their food, you'd understand why! It's fresh and made daily, plus HEALTHY! Here's a little secret... Word on the street is they MAY franchise Farmstead. Which is a HUGE WIN for this St. George bakery!

76 Years Later: Amazing Old Photos Of Dixie Sun Bowl Construction!

This month, the Dixie Sun Bowl celebrates it's 76th birthday! SEVENTY SIX YEARS and still around. There was a time, a few years ago where the city wanted to demolish the Dixie Sun Bowl, and move the rodeo to the Fair Grounds in Hurricane! Luckily, that NEVER happened. The story behind how the Dixie Sun Bowl was created is AWESOME!

In the 1940's before World War II, the rodeo was happening down the street, but the venue wasn't permanent. They started searching for the perfect spot. However, the war hit, the men left and the idea was put on hold. Finally, the war was over, and the men returned home! One day, Neal Lundberg and Ez McArthur were out riding their horses, when they ran into St. George Mayor, Eric Snow. Snow pointed out a location that the city owned and encouraged Lundberg and McArthur to talk to the city council about the land. That land is now... THE DIXIE SUN BOWL!

Lions Club members were asked to each donate $100 to the cause. That $100 is the equivalent of $1,300 now! That's a big ask. 42 Lions pulled out their wallets and donated the $100, while 130 non-members donated AT LEAST $100 to the cause. The Lions Club got creative with fundraising and even started selling raffle tickets to win CARS! One car was a new 1947 Plymouth. That Plymouth was won by Sheriff Antone Prince.

Local people started donating their time, their work, even their equipment to bring this venue together. It was a true community effort. In January of 1947, construction began, and by September it was complete and ready for the Dixie Round-Up Rodeo! Now, the venue needed a name. The Newspaper put out a contest to name the new venue. Bobby Laub of Santa Clara submitted "The Dixie Sunbowl" and won the cash prize: $15. The project cost around $35,000, which would now cost around $10,000,000!
