College football: Alabama hires Patriots assistant Brian Daboll to run offense 21.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Tuscaloosa, Ala. • Alabama has hired New England Patriots assistant Brian Daboll as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, reuniting him with his former boss Nick Saban.

Aging sewer pipe under Denver’s southern suburbs fraught with fetid, fiery problems 17.2.2017 Denver Post: News: Local
A methane-fueled fireball hurls manhole covers hundreds of feet, like giant circular saw blades slicing the air. A 60-plus year old pipe collapses 50 feet underground, causing millions of gallons of raw sewage to back up until the noxious stew flows into the South Platte River. It's a disaster that hasn't come to pass yet but sanitation officials in the south suburbs say the doomsday scenario is "not beyond the realm of possibility." "This is something that has to be dealt with really quickly," said Patrick Fitzgerald, [cq comment="cqcq"]district manager of the Platte Canyon Water & Sanitation District.

Utah Senate appears ready to OK runoff elections 2.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
A lingering issue from the 2014 fight over SB54 and Count My Vote took a step toward resolution Wednesday, with the Utah Senate giving preliminary approval to a bill creating runoff elections for crowded party primary elections.

The bill requires an additional vote in the Senate before moving to t... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Bill to create runoff elections in Utah starts down fast-track toward passage 31.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
A bill to create runoff elections in Utah started down a possible fast track Monday toward passing through both houses of the Legislature by the end of this week. The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously endorsed SB144 and sent it to the full Senate. Its chairman, Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, said leaders hope to pass it through the Legislature this week to possibly stop long-running legal challenges by the Utah Republican Party to recent election law changes that could allow primary candi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Utah would adopt a system of runoff elections under new proposal 27.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah could have runoff elections — if a primary election occurs with four or more candidates, and no one achieves a plurality of at least 35 percent. Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo, introduced SB114 seeking to resolve concerns by the Utah Republican Party about the potential of small-plurality winners caused by recent changes in Utah election law. Utah GOP Chairman James Evans praises that effort. He says if it passes in acceptable final form, the party will finally drop its legal challenges of a n...

Utah's snowpack above normal -- but switch to rain this weekend could lead to flooding 7.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah already has about half of the snow it needs to end the current drought this coming spring, with three months of snow accumulation to go. But that’s the catch, said Randy Julander, Utah Snow Survey supervisor for the Natural Resources Conservation Service — with months to go before spring runoff season begins, anything can happen. And the more immediate concern: Anticipated warmer weather this weekend could lead to flooding. The incoming warm system is expected to produce rain, rather than s... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Editorial: Winning pluralities are fully democratic 17.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah Republicans are not fond of pluralities. That means they don’t like to see an election won by someone who pulled less than an outright majority of ballots cast. The prospect bothers them enough that they are pushing the Legislature to change the new law governing primary elections in the state so as to stop any candidate from winning a party’s nomination with less than a certain percentage of the vote. Before they get too carried away with that thought, however, leaders of the Utah Republi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Growing Moab begins work on new sewer plant 7.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Moab has launched a $12.4 million project to replace its aging wastewater-treatment plant. Crews began clearing a five-acre site at the city’s north end, across from the current sewer plant, in preparation for spring construction of a new, higher-volume sewage plant to be finished sometime in 2018. Rapid growth and a dramatic expansion of tourism in Moab (population 5,200) in recent years have strained the capacity of existing treatment facilities, originally built in the 1950s with upgrades in ...
