I recently had the privilege to interview Jill Tarter. She is a SETI Institute Trustee and the inspiration for Jodi Foster’s character in the movie, “Contact.”
On a personal note, I was introduced to Jill via John Gertz, former SETI Chairman and President and CEO of Zorro Productions. She engaged in a correspondence with my daughter, sending a handcrafted note thanking her for a $2.00 donation to the SETI Institute and including a bevy of space-related materials to encourage her interest in science. Her scientific brilliance and personal warmth combine to make her a woman worth hearing from.
One hundred years ago, the only known Mormon to have kept a diary while serving in World War I recorded his first entry.
“One can never tell what the morrow will bring and the record of the few weeks I have been in the army might interest some one,” wrote Nels Anderson on June 9, 1918, five months before World War I would end on Nov. 11, 1918.
I recently had the privilege to interview Cindy Busby. She is a talented actress best known for her portrayal of Ashley Stanton on “Heartland” and can be seen on Hallmark Channel’s new movie, “Marrying Mr. Darcy.”
In conjunction with this anniversary, Dennis B. Horne has graciously provided selections from his recent book, “I Know He Lives,” which includes rare behind-the-scenes accounts of the priesthood revelation by Elder Bruce R. McConkie.
