I do not blame you about wanting to get away.

I am a "less active" LDS member and still refer to myself as LDS.

I could not live in Utah. So many things bother me. The cultural war was there long before it was anywhere else. As far as I'm concerned, the land use and urban planning from North Salt Lake through the Provo area is an abomination. Open pit mines hover over North Salt Lake. SLC feels way dirtier than I think it should be.

I think the Church (the LDS Church) is a great institution - but find myself rebelling against the cocksuredness of so many people. Was very offended at the last Mormon wedding I attended last summer. I accept that right now I am not temple worthy, but the church demands that so many civil traditions, such as the sharing (or re-sharing) of vows and the honoring of the couple through toasts not happen at the follow-up civil ceremony. The church should find a way, after the ceremony, to let members and non-members actively participate in the ritual.

As for your job hunt - I wonder if you are having a hard time because Districts try to stay away from years of experience because they have to place you higher on the pay scale. It should not be that way - I am sure you are worth far more than a beginning teacher.

I have some kind of in with District 11 in Colorado Springs. If you want, you could send me your resume, and I can be sure you get a shot. This would be a good time to do that.

If your interested, just let me know, and I will get you my email address.

All the best. I know we fight here and there - but you know I do respect you and it would be great if somehow I could open a door for you.
