He couldn’t remember the crash that landed him there, the high-speed collision that killed a mother and her two daughters. “Did I hurt someone?” he asked police. “Did someone die?” Mumford was charged last week with three counts of murder for the deaths of Delphine John, 44, and daughters Anaya Orozco, 3, and Deliah Ramirez, 18. He appeared Monday in a Tooele County courtroom, where he stood solemnly as 3rd D...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

We all know there are 111,000 people who need insurance help. We also know the federal government has offered $500 million to the cause and that Utah has so far refused to take it. It was, however, very refreshing to see John C. Wester of the Catholic Diocese ask “why in a state that proudly proclaims its pro-life beliefs, political leaders are frittering away the chance to expand Medicaid.” He continued by saying it...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

But what about George Washington, successful whiskey distiller? Or John Hancock, fortified wine importer?

The Daily Herald reports that Wendy’s employees called police Tuesday to report a man at the window was asleep and smelled of alcohol. Officers who arrived say they found a 38-year-old man in the driver’s seat. They say he told them he’d been drinking “a little,” then stumbled out of his vehicle and couldn’t complete sobriety tests.
