On this path, government may not be all that shuts down

D. Louise Brown, Standard-Examiner columnist
Oct 16 2013 - 10:50am

Today the federal government shut down goes global. This column is written almost a week in advance, so it's possible by the time it prints, the shut down will be over because the opposing parties finally came to their senses and crafted a solid, sane solution.

Mark Saal, Standard-Examiner columnist
Apr 14 2014 - 4:13pm

Four days, four front-page stories. I just can't decide which was the most disturbing.On Friday, reporter Ben Lockhart's 1A story detailed a number of Bountiful schools that were briefly locked down after a man called a suicide hotline and said he had a firearm and was thinking of taking his own life.
