Thumbs up: To Weber State University students who did well at the Future Business Leaders of America conference in Nashville, Tenn. A winner was Lynda Seneff, a business education teaching major from Clinton. In all, nine students received national recognition.
Thumbs down: To some high summer winds that caused havoc in the Top of Utah last week. Power was lost to more than 1,500 customers in Syracuse.
Thumbs up: To a $17 million deal to ship 24 F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft to the government of Indonesia. Our highly skilled workers at Hill Air Force Base’s Ogden Air Logistics Complex delivered the first three last week.
Thumbs down: To graffiti, which has Roy residents riled up. The constant illegal nuisance is spoiling the view and ambiance along the popular Denver & Rio Grande Trail in the Top of Utah city.
Thumbs up: To the Federal Trade Commission, which is suing Amazon over charges that the company is not doing enough to prevent kids from making unauthorized in-app purchases. We need stronger disclosure and explicit customer consent to prevent unwanted surprise app bills.
Thumbs down: To the Rainbow gathering. It cost the Forest Service $500,000 in staffing and there were 587 incidents, including 31 arrests, one for attempted murder, and 136 citations. Two persons died while sleeping during the gathering.
