Boner Candidate #1: THANKS FOR CARING

She claims her landlord used her mental health issues as an excuse to terminate her lease. The young woman who is sharing her story on the condition of anonymity said she told her three roommates about her depression and suicidal thoughts. Those roommates told apartment complex management about that conversation. Tuesday, she was notified in a letter that she must be moved out by next Monday. “I was completely shocked. I was crying and shaking and immediately trying to pack,” she said. “It’s so morally wrong for them to be doing this to someone who’s been having such a hard time.” The letter she received never uses the word “eviction.” It states, “we have been made aware that you have vocalized suicidal tendencies which has caused undue stress and alarm to your roommates and violated part E and F of #7 in your lease.” Those sections state the complex can terminate the lease if a tenant breaches “the quiet enjoyment of the premises” or causes “any nuisance, health or safety hazard.” “The thing that upsets me most about this is that they decided evicting someone who was already having a hard time would make it easier on them,” she described to FOX13. Several attempts to reach the management of the property for comment were unsuccessful. Now, the college student is living with other friends while she looks for a permanent place to live. She also feels alone as she battles depression. “In normal circumstances I will still be open about what I am going through. But, if it’s going to cost me where I am living – it’s going to cost me the security of having a home — then I shouldn’t be saying anything,” she said.

Boner Candidate #2: LET’S HAVE THE BIGGEST PARTY 2020 HAS SEEN SO FAR

SALT LAKE CITY — A group called Utah Tonight is vowing to host the largest party of the year this Halloween. The group’s public Instagram page appears to be new, as it’s first visible post is from late September about the party. The event is described on the website as: “A massive, outdoor costume party (protest) being held on private property for the purpose of promoting mental health and to raise a voice against those who are using fear and misleading information to gain power and control in our lives. Life must go on. COVID-19 is real, but it shouldn’t be the end of normalcy!” The event’s page also promises to keep attendees’ identities private. “If you purchase a ticket to this event, your personal information will remain confidential. We will not release photos of faces until it makes sense to do so,” the website states. The event has been gaining popularity, through both the Utah Tonight Instagram page and through the event group The Tribe Utah, who claims to not be involved in the event, yet is promoting the event including posting about a photoshoot for the event. Fox13 News reached out to both organizations through social media and email but did not hear back for comment. The event comes as Utah deals with its highest Covid-19 case counts yet.
