Sheri Fisher, Faylene Weinman, and Amber Johnson from CONNECT Summit County join the show to help raise funds for the KPCW Winter Pledge.  CONNECT's mission is to create a well-informed and stigma-free community with access to mental health services for all residents of Summit County. KPCW and Connect Summit County's partnership exemplifies the work that KPCW does for all area non-profits; to broadcast their mission, get the word out about events coming to town, and to educate listeners on topics that fall under the umbrella of each non-profit. 

Local teens Rae Rider and Audrey Buchanan join the program to preview Teen Talk, taking place Thursday, February 28, from 6-8 pm at South Summit High School in Kamas.

It's an inspiring evening of education and awareness regarding issues of substance use and mental health from the youth perspective. 

Today we talk with Liz Yokubison, a local writer, blogger and now book author. She has written a book about how to survive the empty nest… all parents think they are coaching their children on how to launch, but really - it’s the parents who may 'fail to launch' when they are left with an empty nest! Here's how to plan for the college transition with humor.

If so, what is your body position like? Are you hunching, jutting your neck forward? Julia explains how bringing a cognitive and kinesthetic awareness to posture and movement will eliminate pain and improve health.

What is the KETO diet? Is it an upcycled version of the Atkins diet or Paleo diet, or can it offer something healthier and better?  The Mountain Life speaks with Dr. Will Cole, who writes extensively about the KETO diet which he describes as the (mostly) plant-based plan to burn fat, boost your energy, crush your cravings and calm inflammation.
