Mar 29 2014 - 5:20pm

Jim Burton, Standard-Examiner staff
Mar 26 2014 - 7:54pm

If you've seen the movie, you know the drill.Scrawny kid with a heart of gold and a will of steel busts his fanny to make the team. The fans love him but the coach doesn't trust him, so he never plays.And then the chant begins ...Rudy!Rudy!Rudy!Kid gets in the game, crowd goes nuts.Kid makes a play, coach reluctantly offers a crooked, well-I'll-be...

The Mormon blame game takes all the fun out of online debates

Mark Saal, Standard-Examiner columnist
Mar 24 2014 - 4:21pm

This is why we can't have nice things.Nice things like an honest-to-goodness, serious discussion about an actual problem here in our purty great state. Why?

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...
