Mar 15 2014 - 10:01pm

His friend was right there, as always.When he hit a deep, deep 3-point shot as time expired in the first half of Saturday's Big Sky Conference tournament finale, Weber State star Davion Berry turned and saw his childhood friend Damian Lillard sitting courtside.

Help crowdfund a charity, or even do it the old-fashioned way

Mark Saal, Standard-Examiner staff
Mar 15 2014 - 3:48pm

I realize that what I am about to say will paint me as the guy who likes to pull the wings off butterflies and break the bad news about the Tooth Fairy to small children.Seriously, who in his or her right mind would oppose helping nonprofit organizations? I mean, besides Republicans.

Davion Berry has 'senior moment' in Wildcats' victory

Jim Burton, Standard-Examiner staff
Mar 14 2014 - 11:06pm

It was a senior moment.Not the kind when you forget why you just walked into the kitchen holding your car keys, or when you simply cannot remember what you wanted to say to old what's-his-name from across the street.No, not that kind of senior moment (although those are great fun, huh?).We're talking about the moment Friday night when a couple of...

Spending time with some mythical beings

Don Porter
Mar 14 2014 - 3:20pm

As a general rule, I admire people who don't give up. Like Democrats in Utah."What are Democrats?" you ask. "And where might I see one?"It's true, young Skywalker, they do exist. Even outside of Salt Lake City, Park City and Price. But you wouldn't know it to look at election results every two years.

The March Madness mantra: Survive. Advance. Don't sit on a big lead

Jim Burton, Standard-Examiner staff
Mar 13 2014 - 10:01pm

Survive and advance, that's always the plan even when you're leading by 14 at halftime and 20 with nine minutes left in the game.Survive.Advance.Repeat if you can.So it was with Northern Colorado on Thursday. Playing in the first round of the Big Sky Conference men's basketball tournament, the No. 6-seeded Bears upset No. 3 seed Northern Arizona,...

VIDEO: Jazz will watch to see interest paid in Hayward

Jim Burton, Standard-Examiner columnist
Apr 17 2014 - 7:28am

Gordon Hayward is such a good guy I think I'd fall over backward if I ever heard him snap at a reporter, even one who'd just asked one of those awkward "if you could be a tree, what kind of a tree would you be" type questions.Still, the Utah Jazz veteran has a funny way of chuckling when he's asked a question that strikes him as strange, or silly...

Sorry commissioners Bell, Gibson, SE just tells your stories

Don Porter, Standard-Examiner contributor
Apr 16 2014 - 7:26am

I began studying journalism in 1981 at Utah State University. I spent the following 27 years as a reporter and/or editor in the business -- about 24 years of it at this newspaper. One thing you could always count on: At any given time, some politician in the Top of Utah would tattoo "kick me" on his or her forehead, and the Standard-Examiner would...

Teaching genitalia slang not the disturbing crisis in our schools

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. The lockdown was strictly precautionary, but...

Mark Saal, Standard-Examiner staff
Apr 12 2014 - 3:49pm

These days, living across the green, hanging out with an overly jolly gang and possessing a yell that rings through the mountains near and far isn't all that it's cracked up to be.Because, frankly, it's just not a particularly good time to be a Utah Man.Speaking as a proud University of Utah graduate (class of '84), I fully acknowledge that the...
