The actors were honored with several prizes at Sunday’s fan-favorite extravaganza, including choice drama movie actor and breakout movie star for Elgort and choice drama and action movie actress for “Divergent” star Woodley. The pair was also awarded the surfboard-shaped trophy for choice movie lip-lock for their “Fault in Our Stars” smooch. “I don’t surf or anything, so ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-582827032014-08-11T09:19:27.098-06:00" id="#license-2014-08-11T09:19:27.098-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Once upon a time, being neighborly meant “reaching out to the people who lived next door” by, among other things, “offering to watch the kids in a pinch.” Now, “being ‘neighborly’ means leaving those around you in peace.” Or think about reSTART, the nation’s first rehab center for technology addicts who get so hooked to online games that their lives fall apart as their capacities for decision-making and self-cont...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Just say the word immigration and most GOP members of Congress either change the subject or scurry away. Rather than tackle a suite of genuine issues whose obvious solutions would clearly benefit the nation, House Republicans prefer to pass yet more useless bills that seek — and fail — to take away people’s health insurance.

Same stuff, different day. Deja vu all over again. A monthly New York newspaper, The WestView News, uses an objectionable headline (“The N----r In The White House”) on a piece in its July edition, which argues that much of the shrill hatred toward President Obama is rooted in racism. Not surprisingly, the headline gets more attention than the argument. Then on Sunday, Attorney General Eric Holder again blames “racial animus” for some of the more strident opposition to the presi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Or maybe they just never hear about the starving or sick child in Africa or numerous other locations that “could be saved for a just a few cents a day” (less than the cost of feeding a medium-sized dog in the United States).

Ashley Simmons states that, “given the choice between saving the life of my dogs over that of someone else’s child, I would save my dogs every time; just as any mother would do given the same choice.” What?! I am a mother and a dog owner, and I would never choose to save my dog over a child. I dare say that any real mother would always choose to save a child over a dog.

I cook for them, play with them, educate them, spend thousands on their health care and tend to their every need. I would kill to protect them.
