Same deal next year. They will renew the rivalry on Sept. 10, 2016 at Utah. Last September, the rivals announced that they will also play in 2017 (Sept. 9) in Provo and in 2018 (Nov. 24) in Salt Lake City. What then? BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said Wednesday that he expects the rivalry to continue uninterrupted after that. “We are looking at it.

Her call to help — her dog being injured by a wild mountain goat attack — of course was highly unusual, but it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Sheriffs are supposed to deal with unusual calls, and above all be concerned with the well-being of all callers.

They should pay, not charge, reward, not penalize, customers who have rooftop solar arrays. In their small but helpful way, those customers help mitigate the serious and costly damage RMP is doing to human and environmental health by burning coal — an extremely dirty, polluting form of energy.
