Gary Herbert on live radio used the term, and I quote, “rat hole” when questioned about and referencing UTOPIA. He also said “UTOPIA certainly hasn’t turned out to be,Utopia.” Anyone listening to the “Let me speak with the Governor” radio program knows it is true. I have been saying that for years! Think of the millions of dollars that would have been saved, heartache and misery, had Brigham City hired me as an Internet consultant, but I digress. A great teacher of mine, John ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Why? Because, as I have said before, it is a disaster from the start. I work for a real utility. We have strict regulations, set pricing, set fees and intense oversight. Private companies, not so much, to say the least. UTOPIA is a private business. I work with a man who has 100Mb service from UTOPIA in West Valley for $65 per month, grand total!

You’ve heard of the LDS prophet declaring on July 24 that “this is the right place.” The tragic Willie and Martin handcart companies, trapped in snowy Wyoming. The crickets and sea gulls. But there’s a lot you might not know about Mormon pioneers and their historic trek.

Brigham Police Chief Paul Tittensor says the boy was bored and started playing with matches when the fire got away from him on June 29. Five fire departments responded to the blaze at the Baron Woolen Mills buildings, which date back to 1869. No injuries were reported.
