Utah A.G. John Swallow leapt before he was pushed » When Utah Attorney General John Swallow announced his resignation on Thursday while defiantly proclaiming his innocence, he said the timing had nothing to do with a report due out that very day from a special counsel investigating alleged violations of campaign finance and conflict-of-interest laws. But, the delayed report, issued Friday, made clear that Swallow’s timing — even if coincidental — was probably a smart move. Had Swallow not resigned, he now would be facing the real possibility of a judge removing him from office.

Analysis shows where more UTA crime occurs — buses or trains » In 2012, UTA’s 60 sworn officers worked 3,403 crimes along its lines. While nearly 80 percent of all crimes were against the agency itself — problems with fare jumpers, criminal trespassers, and people riding with warrants from other jurisdictions — hundreds more involved more serious offenses that impacted passengers.

Vail’s here: Moving Utah skiing into the big time » Few doubt that Vail Resorts’ presence in Utah will elevate the state’s ski industry to a new level, bringing more money and respect to the wondrous Wasatch Mountains. But the industry giant’s arrival also has been unusually fractious among Utah’s historically harmonious collection of 13 independently owned resorts, each with its own niche.

Utah mother faults flu shot in 19-year-old son’s death » Lori Webb’s 19-year-old son died early Tuesday morning after spending nearly a month in a coma.

The shot was part of a routine physical Chandler Webb got after deciding to go on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

With e-cigs Vuse and Blu, Big Tobacco back on Utah airwaves » Dianne Draper was aghast. She was speaking with a group of Colorado Springs teens in September when a girl began touting R.J. Reynolds’ "digital vapor device," introduced to the local market just three months earlier unaware the "Vuse" is an e-cigarette. In the first quarter of 2014, R.J. Reynolds will make Utah its second-ever market for Vuse, bringing with it a marketing blitz that includes online, radio and, yes, even television ads.

Adopting a refugee community » It started simply enough — Danielle Alcala wanted to help a friend tutor a few refugee children from Somalia. Seven years later, Danielle and her husband, Danjuma Alcala, are tutoring 75 Somali and Bantu youths between the ages of 3 and 18 at a nondenominational church in Murray.
