Top stories this past weekend:

Utah-BYU: Utes hold off Cougars, 20-13 • Utah took on BYU and came out victorious in a rivalry game that won’t happen again for another two years. There weren’t any last minute heroics or dramatic comebacks, as there have been in the past, but that doesn’t mean Utes fans won’t be happy about the bragging rights they’ll have for quite a while.

Most Utah small businesses don’t like Obamacare, but want to know how to comply • Among Utah’s businesses, about 75 percent are skeptical that the Affordable Care Act will be able to make insurance either cheaper or more available. Still, most companies think employer-provided care is a top priority, and they’re struggling to find ways to comply with the law. They’ve got until 2015 to do so, or face some stiff penalties.

Legal problems sent midwife to Utah, where another baby died • Valerie El Halta’s supporters say she is an experienced and competent midwife. But she was also charged in the death of a Moab newborn in June and was unlicensed to practice in Utah at the time the child died. This latest charge isn’t her first run in with the law.

Gay pride reaches new territory — Provo • The small town of Provo, which many think of as a deeply conservative place, hosted its first-ever Provo Pride Festival Saturday. Vendors, activists and residents came out to celebrate the LGBT community with music, food and fun.

D.C. Notebook: Lee’s visits to S.C., Iowa don’t hint at White House bid • Despite planning a big speech in Iowa next month, Sen. Mike Lee’s staff insist he isn’t going to announce his candidacy for President. Plus, Rep. Rob Bishop’s stylish three-piece suits have at least one person calling him a "baller."

Utah judge made a career of treating people with respect • A retiring Utah judge explains his belief that every defendant ought to be treated with respect, going so far as to think of them as though they were family. It’s almost unheard of in the rest of the judicial world, but Judge William Thorne says it’s absolutely essential to his position.

Man accused of riding horse drunk in Colorado makes it to Utah • Patrick Schumacher spent the night in jail in Boulder, Colorado on Sept. 9 after he was caught riding his horse drunk. His destination? Bryce, Utah, where he hoped to attend his brother’s wedding. Despite the setback and a 600-mile journey he hoped to make on horseback, he made it to the wedding on time.

Kenya Red Cross says death toll rises to 68 • Gunmen used grenades and assault rifles in an attack on a mall in Nairobi that left dozens of people dead and several taken hostage. Roughly 175 were injured.
