Mysterious surveillance cameras watch polygamous towns • In the twin polygamous towns of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz., dozens of security cameras constantly peer down streets. They hang from public utility poles and poke out from tall fences.

Crandall Canyon rescuer dies in coal mine collapse • A Huntington man involved in the ill-fated rescue operation at the Crandall Canyon mine in 2007 was killed Friday afternoon when part of a tunnel roof fell on him in the Rhino coal mine near the mouth of Huntington Canyon in Emery County. Another miner, his cousin, was hurt.

He’s a sole proprietor, a finish carpenter who’s been a "one-man band" since he became a contractor in 1997.
