The weekend is here, Northern Utah.
Here are a few stories from Friday that you should know about to start your weekend.
The pain struck so deep, she couldn’t drive through Farmington again for weeks.
And not until now, nearly a year later, has she summoned the emotional strength to start asking questions about what happened to her brother.
Maxine Toledo of Layton said Max Toledo, 35, died Aug. 28, 2016, at Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful, two days after he arrived there by ambulance from the Davis County Jail.
Back when she was a kid, Roxy Marocchi says life in Ogden’s older core was simpler, safer.
“When I was growing up, we didn’t even have keys to our homes,” she said. You didn’t have to lock your doors because you didn’t have to worry about thieves.
Now 62, she says the city is a changed place, and it hasn’t been for the better. She keeps the doors locked on her East Central Ogden home — on Jackson Avenue around the corner from her childhood home on Capitol Street — and has installed motion lights and security cameras to ward off break-ins.
In the last post she left on Facebook, Nadja Medley, 48, answered “a little survey more suited for folks over 30.”
Her answers come across as confident and relaxed, written by a woman who was enjoying life.
8. Last thought you have before going to bed? - Life is good. 9. Do you miss being a child? - Nope
That was June 4.
On Tuesday, Aug. 8, the Canyon County Coroner’s Office in Idaho officially identified Nadja Medley and her 14-year-old daughter, Payton Medley, as two of the three victims whose bodies were found hidden behind a shed and covered with a tarp on property in Caldwell, Idaho, on June 19. Police say they were shot to death.
The 14 candidates competing for three Ogden City Council seats in the Aug. 15 primary submitted initial campaign finance reports Tuesday, and those documents showed wide variations in support and spending.
And while contributions to city council races, especially before a primary election, tend to be tame in comparison to the millions of dollars spent on higher profile state and federal candidates, Terri McCulloch believes the documents are still important to peruse. McCulloch is co-leader of Weber County’s League of Women Voters.
It appears Ogden City will step in and fix a leaking canal pipe that runs underneath 4th Street, but settling the final bill might be an issue.
Representatives from the Ogden attorney’s office, the city’s engineering department, Lynne Irrigation and residents who live near a reoccurring sink hole caused by the leak, met Wednesday afternoon to discuss the problem.
