Lessons from Portland: Do crackdowns work?

SALT LAKE CITY — Earlier this month in Portland, Oregon, Christopher J. David joined in local protests. David, a veteran of the United States Navy, took issue with videos he’d seen of federal agents’ use of force against demonstrators. He stood before federal agents asking them questions; they responded by battering his leg with a baton and spraying pepper spray in his face.

The incident helped fuel criticism of the role and behavior of federal agents — including officers from the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Marshals Service — deployed to that city. Reports surfaced of agents pulling protesters into unmarked vans and firing rubber bullets at protesters’ heads. Many observers likened them to an army occupying enemy territory.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump ...

1 dead, West Jordan officer injured in exchange of gunfire

WEST JORDAN — A person was shot and killed and a West Jordan police officer was injured Sunday after police tried to pull over a stolen pickup truck.

About 8 p.m., West Jordan police were dispatched after a driver reported they were following a truck believed to be stolen recently from a relative, West Jordan Police Sgt. J.C. Holt said.

Two officers found the Chevy truck at 2160 W. 7680 South. When the truck was pulled over, its multiple occupants “did not want to get out,” Holt said.

When one of the occupants eventually did get out, the sergeant said gunfire was exchanged between the officers and someone inside the truck.

Holt did not know who fired shots first, nor how many were fired.

One of the occupants was killed...

Utes’ ‘almost’ 1995 football season included 2 miracle wins, 4 close losses and rare blowout victory over BYU

SALT LAKE CITY — Twenty-five years ago, the Utah football team headed into the season with a lot of similarities to the situation they face going into the upcoming season.

No, there was no pandemic to contend with back in 1995, but there are some things common to what the 2020 Utes are facing, assuming their season gets played.

Among the similarities between the two seasons:

1995 — The Utes were coming off a brilliant season that saw them reach the top ten in the national rankings before faltering with a couple of late losses that put a damper on their season.

2020 — The Utes were ranked as high as No. 5 last season before losing their final two games to Oregon in the Pac-12 championship game and to Texas in the Alamo Bowl

1995 — Utah had lost a bunch of starters — 16 in all — and h...

Pac-12 football players uniting to demand change. Here is what they’re looking for

SALT LAKE CITY — As a Saturday report from ESPN indicated was in the works, a group of football players from Pac-12 Conference schools went public Sunday outlining a list of demands they desire from the conference, and said they will opt out of fall camps and games unless those demands are guaranteed in writing for both scholarship players and walk-ons.

In a lengthy statement posted on The Players’ Tribune, athletes made four key demands.

First, players asked for health and safety protections, especially as it relates to COVID-19, including the option not to play during the pandemic without fear of losing scholarships and prohibiting and voiding agreements that waive school liability for contracting the novel coronavirus...

SpaceX capsule and NASA crew make 1st splashdown in 45 years

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Two NASA astronauts returned to Earth on Sunday in a dramatic, retro-style splashdown, their capsule parachuting into the Gulf of Mexico to close out an unprecedented test flight by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company.

It was the first splashdown by U.S. astronauts in 45 years, with the first commercially built and operated spacecraft to carry people to and from orbit. The return clears the way for another SpaceX crew launch as early as next month and possible tourist flights next year.

Test pilots Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken rode the SpaceX Dragon capsule back to Earth less than a day after departing the International Space Station and two months after blasting off from Florida...

High school football: Salem Hills Skyhawks 2020 preview

Note: Salem Hills finished with an 11-2 overall record in 2019 and was second in Region 8 with a 5-1 record. It was RPI seed No. 1 in the 5A playoffs, and was eliminated by Orem 51-14 in semifinals.

SALEM — It’s a Higginson taking the head coaching duties again at Salem Hills, although this time it’s Jeff Higginson, who takes over just a few years after his brother, Joel Higginson, resigned the post.

But that’s sort of the way it is at Salem Hills, with everyone helping out where they can.

“I was on Joel’s staff, and then on Harry (Schwenke’s) staff when he took over for a few years after Joel, so we’ve all sort of been together doing this thing throughout,” Jeff Higginson said. “So it’s been great. We love being around these kids and we just all love coaching...

Letter: Congress needs to solve the problem of surprise billing

With so many Utah families struggling financially and America’s health care system already under extraordinary strain since of the COVID-19 crisis, it would be reckless for Congress to give a handout to insurance companies. But that’s exactly what’s happening and families across the country are receiving surprise bills that threaten their life-savings, retirement, college funds and even homes.

If insurance companies get Congress to pass “rate-setting” legislation, these costs will continue to be passed along to patients, who are already paying expensive monthly premiums and co-pays for care.

Congress can take patients out of the middle by passing independent dispute resolution...

High school football: Stansbury Stallions 2020 preview

Note: Stansbury finished with an 8-4 overall record in 2019 and was second in Region 10 with a 6-1 record. It was RPI seed No. 6 in the 4A playoffs, and was eliminated by Dixie 42-14 in quarterfinals.

STANSBURY PARK — Things are looking good for the Stansbury Stallions heading into the second year of the Eric Alder regime.

A year ago, everything was new, whether it be the coaching staff, the offensive and defensive systems, how the team practiced, even the type of culture that was desired. You name it, it was new for the Stallions in 2019.

That is not the case anymore. Now, the Stallions are experienced, battled-tested and prepared to take a significant step forward.

“My expectation is fairly high for this group,” said Alder, “and I think that is what they want...
