Were it not for their time at Utah, Spencer Toone and Steve Fifita wouldn’t be coaching together at Idaho State. Between the four, such symmetries abound. It’s been almost a quarter-century since Utah’s head coach and offensive coordinator first bonded as assistant coaches in Pocatello.

The prosecution and defense cast the 32-year-old Washington County man in different lights in recent court filings, in which Smith is asking a judge to reverse the decision to send him to trial on a capital aggravated-murder charge.

Allen Christensen’s opinion (“Medicaid money is not the Utah way,” July 6) does not meet these criteria. First, the truth. He thinks Medicaid expansion is a bribe — which means accepting corrupt money. The ACA is the law, and we pay for it with our taxes, whether or not the poor benefit. Also, he implies that, without expansion, health centers and clinics will care for 61,900 individuals for free or sliding-scale fees. Untrue.
