OGDEN -- Ron McBride had a wide range of emotions on Saturday following Weber State's loss to Montana State in a tightly-played contest that came down to the final play. Following the 26-21 loss, the Weber State head coach didn't say much to his team, and told reporters he needed time over the weekend to calm down in order to figure out just what he'd say to his players in an effort to reignite them.
He had the time, and on Monday McBride was ready to share his thoughts.
NORTH OGDEN -- Business is growing in North Ogden, and the city is capitalizing on that growth to enhance community services. For the past couple of years, sponsorships for city events have grown and are helping provide services the city and taxpayers once paid for.
Such events as Cherry Days are drawing more business sponsors, and new events like the city's summer Battle of the Bands and Thinner Winner contests were completely business-sponsored.
It may not have been illegal for a Syracuse councilman to not disclose his son's interest in building a carwash until just before a vote on a zoning change, but it was clearly ethically wrong.
The same rule applies to Syracuse Mayor Fred Panucci, who early in this comedy told Councilman Doug Hammond not to disclose his family relationship with carwash owner John Hammond.

For the Clearfield woman, fitness means fun.

When court convenes Monday, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic justice, will join the eight others.
She replaces Justice David Souter who retired. But this won't be her first time behind the high court bench. Sotomayor joined the court in time to hear a special oral argument last month over campaign finance regulations.
