Take 2 Podcast: Student Loan Forgiveness, Bears Ears Lawsuit

Host: Heidi Hatch
Guests: State Auditor John Dougall & Maura Carabello from the Exoro Group

Student Loan Forgiveness:

  • What it does: President Biden’s plan to forgive up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients and $10,000 for other student loan holders. Payment pauses continues until end of year.
  • Is it Legal? Last summer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Biden does not have executive authority to issue “debt forgiveness” saying the action would be illegal and it would need an act of Congress.
  • Democrat Chris Pappas of New Hampshire said Wednesday the plan “sidesteps Congress and our oversight and fiscal responsibilities.”
  • Is it fair? Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) called the order a “scheme” that “forces blue-collar workers to subsidize white-collar graduate students.”
  • Does this fix the higher ed cost problem? Will Universities jack up prices hoping more money is on the way.
  • Will this fan and feed inflation: More money flowing with 40-year high inflation
  • Will this change any votes for the midterm? A blue wave in thanks to Democrats and Biden fulfilling a campaign promise.

Bears Ears Lawsuit: The state is suing the Biden administration over the President’s restoration of the original boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments. The monuments were downsized by former President Trump in 2017.

In a letter Wednesday, Henderson told attorneys for the Utah Democratic Party and legislative candidate Josh Hardy there is “no statutory basis” for removing Rep. Joel Ferry (R-Brigham City) from the ballot in the House District 1 race.

“At this time,” Henderson wrote, “whether or not Mr. Ferry remains on the ballot is entirely up to him.”

Utah Gerrymander lawsuit moves forward: State attorneys sought delay until the Supreme Court decides if states can hear such challenges.

How the WIC Program can help your family

WIC supports lower income families with over four decades of proven success by improving health outcomes for women, infants and children. WIC is a supplemental nutrition program designed to help pregnant women, new mothers, and children under the age of 5 eat well and stay healthy.

Jade Elliott sat down with JoDell Geilmann-Parke, WIC Outreach Coordinator for Salt Lake County Health Department, on this episode of the Baby Your Baby Podcast to discuss the program and upcoming changes.

Foods that meet high nutrition standards can be purchased with WIC grocery vouchers at a variety of participating stores. These foods vary depending on an individual’s nutrition needs but may include infant formula and cereal, a large selection of fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter and whole grains.

In addition to food vouchers, WIC provides nutrition education and extensive breastfeeding support to participating families. WIC strives to reduce health disparities in the community by encouraging healthy eating habits, providing access to healthy foods, and promoting breastfeeding as the optimal source of nutrition for infants.

WIC services are currently reaching less than 40% of eligible individuals in Utah.

The big news for 2020 is that Utah WIC is converting from paper vouchers to smart cards and will be available throughout the state at all county health departments by the end of the year. E-WIC will streamline the shopping and checkout process and make using WIC easier for participants. WIC has also modernized their website to include a client portal and created a WIC Shopper APP to make WIC services more accessible.

There are income eligibility requirements to participate in WIC. You can visit to check eligibility and find out how to apply or call 1-877-WICKIDS.

The Baby Your Baby program provides many resources for all pregnant women and new moms in Utah. There is also expert advice from the Utah Department of Health and Intermountain Healthcare that air each week on KUTV 2News.

The importance of reading to your children

It’s never too early to start reading with your baby. Reading with your baby has multiple benefits.

Jade Elliott sat down with Tyson Tidwell, a pediatrician with Intermountain Healthcare, to talk not only about why to read with your baby, but also tips for how and when to do it.

Why reading to your baby is so important

When parents talk, read, and sing with their babies, connections are formed in their young brains. These connections build language, literacy, and social and emotional skills at an important time in a baby’s development. These activities also strengthen the emotional bond between parent and child and helps your child reach social and developmental milestones.

Hold your child in your arms and read with emotion

Infants as young as a few days or weeks old can know and prefer their parents’ voices and faces. Although they may not understand words, they’ll respond to the emotion in your voice and the expression on your face. They love to look at pictures with bright colors and feel secure when they’re in your arms.

Choose colorful and sturdy books

As babies get older, they’ll reach out to hold a book and then put it into their mouths to explore it. Board books and books made of fabric or with thicker pages are more durable for very young children. You can borrow children’s books for free from your local library or purchase some of your own. Look for colorful illustrations or photos. Some books have things with texture that can be touched, which makes them even more interesting.

Ask your pediatrician about the Reach out and Read program which offers free books starting at your baby’s 6 month well visit. You can receive a free book at your child’s well check visits through age five, for a total of eight free books. For more information visit

Plan a special reading time

Active young children may lose interest in a book after only 1-2 minutes. Follow their lead, but keep reading, talking, and singing with your baby regularly and his interest and attention span will grow. Make this a special time. Give your baby your full attention. Turn off the TV and computers and put down your phone.

Read together every day

As babies grow into toddlers, reading aloud together can be a very helpful routine, especially when it’s part of your regular calming bedtime routine. Young children love having choices. Let them choose the book to read. Toddlers quickly develop favorites and may ask you to read the same story over and over, so offer choices you like too!

Talk about the book

Toddlers can point to pictures of objects (Show me the tree) and answer questions (Which one says moo?) As their language grows, they may be able to name the pictures you point to or finish the sentences in a book. Sometimes they even pretend to read the book themselves. As they get older they learn to point to letters in the alphabet or to count some of the pictures.

Make reading part of your routine

Building routines for meals, play, and sleep help children know what to expect and what is expected of them. Listen to our podcast on bedtime routines here.

Keep reading together

Even when your child can read by themselves, you can still read stories to them that are at a higher reading level than books they can read on their own. They will look forward to the next chapter and you will make lasting memories.
