According to the FEC reports filed last year by Reids campaign committee, Friends for Harry Reid, the campaign paid Ryan Elisabeth $5416.93 on October 7 and $11,370 on October 23. Both payments are listed as holiday gifts on the FEC report. According to Ralston, Reids office eventually confirmed to him that Ryan Elisabeths full name is Ryan Elisabeth Reid, and that she is the Senators granddaughter and a jewelry maker. Reids office was not originally forthcoming about this information, however, and only confirmed that Ryan Elisabeth was a relative after repeated prodding and speculation from Nevada journalists. The gifts, Ralston reports, were passed on to donors and supporters. Ryan Elisabeth Reids LinkedIn page lists her as currently employed by the Sprat Theatre Company, where, according to their website, she is the artistic director. Her page in the Brooklyn Arts Council registry of artists also notes that she has a jewelry company called Ryan Elisabeth. The FEC is requesting an explanation of the purpose of those expenditures from Friends for Harry Reid.

So then I would do that, come back the next week, and hed tell me something else to work on. Now, Holiday is sponsored by Shaker harmonica microphones, and has a case filled with about 10 harp beauties that he kept close by during this interview. At the prompting of Wheeler, Holiday founded the Utah Blues Society six months ago with the help of KRCLs Brian Kelmhost of the Red, White & Blues program on Monday nightswho was recently appointed as the societys president. Dedicated to the celebration of the blues as well as spreading awareness of the genre, the Utah Blues Society hosts weekly blues shows at various venues and even flies in national blues artists to perform and hold workshops in their specialty instruments. So far, some of the featured artists have been Blues Hall of Famer Lazy Lesterwho did a workshop on harmonicaas well as Mississippi harmonica player Adam Gussow and legendary Texas guitarist/vocalist Guitar Shorty. In addition to bringing musicians to Utah, the Utah Blues Society supports local blues players. We raised money to send a Utah blues band to Memphis to compete in the nationals, Holiday says. With the enthusiastic response the Utah Blues Society has received, it looks to have a bright future.
