After 18 years, Ruth Lubbers is retiring from her role as executive director of Art Access/VSA Utah. Ruth has made a great impact in our city by providing mentors, educators and artist opportunities to our youth and special needs community. Ruth, we thank you for the years of commitment and energy you have dedicated to Art Access and to everyone who has experienced it.

In keeping with the personal transformation that Golden Braid Books supports, the store has gone through a significant transformation of its own. The entire space has been reinvented where products and books are integrated into themed sections such as Spiritual Traditions, Relationships, Home & Garden, and Literature & Art—18 sections in all. They’ve also expanded the jewelry, greeting card, and bodycare sections. Golden Braid still features in-house psychics for daily readings but they now take place in a more private space.

The Salt Lake Center for Spiritual Living announces the Rev. Marty Bacher as permanent senior minister. The Center for Spiritual Living meets on Sundays at the Columbus Community Center, 2531 South 400 East in South Salt Lake, with services at 9:30 and 11 a.m.

Local psychic, medium and Akashic reader Darryl Woods is now on the radio. Darryl is the host of Connecting with Spirit, a radio show on that explores all things spiritual with different guests each week. He also gives free mini-readings. The show can be heard live every Sunday, 6-8 p.m.

Happy Anniversary to Eric Cole and Underfoot Floors. For 10 years Underfoot has been Salt Lake’s go-to place for Earth-friendly flooring. We’re proud to have sent many CATALYST readers their way! Visit their showroom on 3rd West (near CostCo) for cork, bamboo, marmoleum and more.

Great party favor: Book a psychic for a party or event. Intuitive Journeys has readers for all occasions.

Scott Evans of Pago on 9th and 9th has procured space for another restaurant east of Liberty Heights Fresh, where that old eye-sore of a Dairy Queen building sat for so long. Opening night is a long time coming, as much needs to be done. Until then, we’ll be dreaming of the deliciousness to come!
