We want to own our home. We want to marry. We want to work. The problem is, many of us can’t. America’s young adults have gotten a lot of flak for missing many of the milestones that earlier generations checked off with ease. We aren’t getting even entry-level jobs, which could enable us to pay our own bills. Not only are we not buying houses, many of us aren’t renting, either: About a third of millennials still live with their parents, earning us the irksome...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

According to the department’s Tobacco Prevention and Control 2014 Annual Report, 12 percent of Utah students in grades 8, 10 and 12 surveyed last year said they had tried e-cigarettes.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found smoking is even forbidden in nearly half of homes where an adult smoker resides, up from one in 10 households with smokers in the early 1990s.

Perhaps they came of age during a time when children, especially teens, were expected to behave as little adults. For years the scientific community has made clear that brains of children and young adults into their 20s undergo physical and chemical changes that can result in high-risk behaviors, vulnerability to addiction and mental illness.

Producers at the Utah Children’s Theatre are aiming the company’s annual Shakespeare festival to the rest of us — that is, kids and adults with short attention spans. That caveat is branded in the festival’s name. The company takes seriously the notion of inviting its audiences to enjoy Shakespeare’s timeless stories, albeit streamlined for a digital-addled age.

So it’s no surprise that the Wicked Witch of the West flies high above the outdoor amphitheater from unexpected places, often announced by a loud explosion.
