Feature on 78-Year-Old Butcher Dennis Dixon

This semester has been much busier than expected. I find myself gravitating toward the newsroom almost every day. I chose to do twelve news stories for my broadcast capstone class, which has occupied most of my time, to say the least. I truly LOVE my major and am so thankful for the many people that have come into my life because of it. Each story is a little adventure. And once the story is edited I have a video journal of what I did that day. One of the many perks of broadcast journalism is the wide variety of people we meet while doing a story.

One Tuesday afternoon, I drove to Payson, UT and spent a couple hours with this guy, 78-year-old Dennis Dixon. He attended Stanford University on scholarship, served a mission in East Germany, and graduated from BYU in economics and political science. He then went back to his hometown to work at his father's butcher shop. He is one of the sweetest men I have ever met. He reminded me what's important in life. While conducting the interview I started to tear up. He's such a dear.

Take a look. See for yourself. You will fall in love too...don't let the red meat gross you out too much...look past it.
