The state of Utah has had a long time relation with a company that supplies the state's Department of Motor Vehicles with reports of drivers, whom the company says, are operating their vehicles in violation of Utah's motor vehicle code.

The company is called InsurRite and several times over the past dozen years or so this company has sent me warnings and threatening notices telling of a revocation of my vehicle registration, most recently, just last week. In that letter, on what looks like official State of Utah letterhead, I was notified the registration on my 1995 Honda Raccoon (photo) had been revoked!

I've owned several classic automobiles and trucks for years and I keep all properly licensed and insured so I can enjoy occasional drives and cruises with other classic car friends.

Over the years, I've invited law enforcement agencies to my car shows to exhibit their latest technology in patrol and pursuit vehicles. During one annual event several years ago a local police department in our county had a cruiser with a six-way, roof mounted light bar that included a feature that would track several vehicles at a time, immediatly informing the police officer if a violater of the state's vehicle registration code was scanned in the patrol car.

Last Sunday morning, enroute to the monthly Roy Cars and Coffee, a black n' white pulled me over because the scanner in the police car signaled a violation of improper registration.

My onboard papers, however, revealed I was compliant, yet InsurRite's data overrode my DMV printouts and insurance data. Since I've been 'falsely reported' on numerous occasions I have to question the accuracy of InsurRite's research on behalf of the State of Utah and often wondered who ARE these people?

Going forward, may I suggest this new technology is in addition to all the 'tracking' being conducted on us all. It's not just our cellphones, watches and new, hi-tech vehicles.

"1984" may have been a distant concern for many long ago, but it's become more a reality today!

Sunday's Cars & Coffee Roy, Ut was one of largest gatherings since it was formed by Gunzy, King and Scott several years ago at the Roy Harmons and Scooters location 1900w at Riverdale Rd. A monthly favorite of an increasing number of fans... Thnx to all who joined in and who support the corner stores' managers who 'share their parking'.

Great cruisers and Classics, contemporary vehicles... and a great place to connect for automotive histories and information. Here's a quik view along with song favorite by 'The Cars'!

F9 svc 2 new cities out west.... thnx to folks at SLCIA got this story...

Also, take a look at my 'on board' story of Frontier's new daily flights to/from SFO--->

It’s that time of year and new routes are springing up at SLC! Frontier Airlines begins new nonstop flights between SLC and Ontario (CA), San Francisco and Dallas/Fort Worth this week. We can “bear-ly” contain our excitement!

Yesterday, Frontier Airlines (F9) started new, non-stop fights between Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). As a retiree of the airline, I decided to ride along to check out the service. The flight was flown using a 240 seat Airbus 321Neo, one of the company's new 'Green Fleet' of environmentally friendly passenger jets.

I've included some photos from the flight to SFO, which include shots of climb out over the Great Salt Lake, Wendover's former WWII airbase, Reno and Lake Tahoe area and the descent over the vast San Francisco Bay area with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco as well as a nearly full shot of the Oakland Bay Bridge.

Treasure (Goat) Island, was my temporary 'home' in 1987-88 at the, then, Treasure Island Navel Station. This approach to SFO offered me a great air tour and, while I've flown the route frequently over the past forty years, this was my first as a passenger (pax) and not a Frontier employee.

I enjoyed my flights on this quik-turn trip over and back, which was a pleasant run thanks to a courteous and professional flight crew (photo).

So, 'Hello' and welcome aboard your own next fight aboard Frontier, the airline with wildlife on the tails!

p.s. A special thank you to former Frontier mktg guru, Diane Willman. She was instrumental in developing Frontier's tall tail 'stories' of wildlife. By the way, one of our first five Boeing jets at startup in 1994 was a Racoon! My favorite and the name of my small bus (see photos). - jShelburne F9, rtrd

I served the Red Cross, 1961-1999 thru fires, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, U.S. military bases and mass casualty events... however, never during war. I dedicate this short clip to members of the PRCS and to those killed doing their work in Gaza since Oct 7, 2023.

We could sure use some help in stopping City of Ogden from DEMOLISHING this home of northern Utah's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center!!

The city wants WRCNU --OUT-- in 30 days, to make roon for PARKING LOT ! Please call, text, write or go to city offices to ask for a reprieve of this decision. (Please, also read attached letter to editor in Standard-Examiner). This is where I took a large winged bird, from a Roy, UT highway many years ago... the volunteers at WRCNU met me here and took the injured bird in for emergency medical attention.
- Thnx, and please SHARE this urgent message to the Ogden City Mayor. jShelburne 2.2.24

this is story by San Fran news guy - good reporting. Col Nicole Mann has quite a history and recently commanded Space X mission to Space station. Nation's first indigenous woman from NorCal tribal land.

She could just be first woman to go to moon next year.

Remember all... LEAVE yer carry-ons in O.H.bin if told to evacuate plane! Also, seat belts on in-flight!

Kudos to AS pilots, cabin crews for prompt rtn to PDX during recent airborne emergency - jS

Howdy, Pards and Pardettes -
I've been out among 'em this Christmas season and snapped some house decorations in our neighborhood

I was hoping to recognize neighbors' efforts in sharing the season for others. So much sad news on evening news these days, I thought I'd display 'home spirit' decor.

Hope you'll select your personal favorite- one only please. Just respond by selecting the 'letter' of the house you like the best. House with most selections will receive a Hoilday Treat. It's my way of thanking 'neighbors on the bench' for sharing the spirit in 2023.

Thnx, all - Art Simon, jS

Yaknow... watching media images and hearing of recent in-flight passenger disturbances conjures (?) my own comment:

"It's about time we captured ALL the airline disturbances in 'wide-action' on our CINEMISCOPE capable cell phones... So if yer a passenger flying, be sure to keep your cellphone Horizontal, to reflect the audiences' participation.

Oh, btw... if YOU are the 'disturbee', bring extra cash, 'cause you're gonna need it. i.e.: diversion fees, including, but not limited to:
landing fee, refueling fee, TSA, local Leo expenses, gate/ramp fee, catering, mis-conx fees for pax, court fees, FAA fine(s), etc, etc!)

Now, sit back, relax and enjoy you fight!"

p.s. The attached image represents a typical pax disruption foto of FOB* in which a pax chooses to become involved.... Yep, in the end, it will just all be one big BLURR!

'Lil ceramic Lucille Bug from a Hilton Head ares charter on my birthday in 2007... I made two at small shop, one for my daughter... the other I found in my glove box just now. I think we'd 'sacked' all our Boeings by then and became an all-Airbus operator.

Here's a few more of Lucille Bug over the years... plus a single of Frontier depending into KFCA during wildland fires 45mi SE in June '22... Can't seem to hitch many rides on F9 with their ULCC schedules.

Write if you find! jS

This is a highway SAFETY concern of mine! Perhaps YOU have experienced the frustration of having to PUSH ARROWS and have taken your eyes OFF THE ROAD while changing radio settings.... --->>>>

Will someone PLEASE explain WHY motorists can't have RADIO TUNNING K***S and SIMPLE to use heating and cooling settings.

These seem to me to help in safe driving while operating motor vehicles!!!

We won't forget... I spent hours assisting dispatch 'locate' ships in our SLC location so they'd have confirmed status on all F9 planes, parked or in air... we had one live flight and two charter Boeings at our station.. gottem all pushed off gates about 30', then 'red tagged' all doors, on each and gave the salvageable catering stuff to our fellow AA, NW ops... along with special hugs to our AA, UA ticket counter colleagues who lost so much that day.
Frontier's Cpt, Derrick Ross, departing LGA on his am flight, spotted the smoke from the WTC tower and heard the talk on frequency prior to his diversion.

Like all OALs that morning, Derrick and his flt/cbn crew took care of their pax for the duration of groundings that followed.

He'd later write a special short piece for our, then, Frontier Newsletter. - jS
