FIRST With The Good News

Today's Silver Lining Headline:

Pipe Dream, February 20, 2017-- Columnist Emily Houston reports that she was one of the group of Americans disappointed by the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election. She expected, she says, that after the election, most people wouldn't pay attention to the news as much, until she recalled Trump's public appeal. "Our president’s actions, while unpredictable and unprecedented in many cases, are undeniably captivating," says Houston. "Though I would have much preferred a different outcome from the election, it is indubitable that his public appeal is widespread and that people are interested in what he is doing. For the first time that I can remember, people who would ordinarily grow complacent about keeping up with politics are knowledgeable about what is happening — and it’s all because of Trump."

Food

“Some foods are so comforting, so nourishing of body and soul, that to eat them is to be home again after a long journey. To eat such a meal is to remember that,
though the world is full of knives and storms, the body is built for kindness. The angels, who know no hunger, have never been as satisfied.” ― Eli Brown, Cinnamon and Gunpowder

  • About Us

    Rebecca Z. Kennedy started The Silver Lining News in 1972 as a vision for news reported from positive angles, and story follow-ups that illustrated “silver linings” from past events. In order to register her business and slogans in Utah during the 1970s, she was required to distribute the publication out of state.

    She made a single-sheet publication and drove to Wyoming where the owner of a drug store agreed to distribute it for her. Within a couple months, she received a Utah State declaration granting her protection for “The Silver Lining News” as well as “First With the Good News.”

  • The Silver Lining Story 

    Picking up a hitchhiker was about the only time my family had a brush with the counterculture revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, and that was before my parents heard stories about hitchhikers killing and robbing drivers. My dad likely gave that hitchhiker the benefit of the doubt – she was carrying a baby she named “Dawn Rain.” (She said the baby was born at dawn, in the rain. And who is more trustworthy than a mom carrying a baby?)

    Other than that experience, the only other way we connected to the hippie movement immortalized in the 1967 song “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)” was with The Silver...
