Embattled school board member, transgender sports, expanded vaccinations

More than 7,000 people sign a petition seeking to remove a Utah school board member over her comments about LGBTQ students and Black Lives Matter. A new bill seeks to prevent transgender girls from participating in female sports in Utah schools. The state says it will begin vaccinating those 65 and older in March. And a comment during a legislative committee meeting triggers “alarm bells” for opponents of the Utah Inland Port.
