More than one-third of Utah school buses ‘dirty’ » The oldest school bus in the state sits in a garage near a junior high in scenic Eden. This year, the bus turns 30 — older than some students’ parents. It’s one tiny part of what many say is a big problem for Utah — an aging fleet of school buses spewing toxic gases into the state’s already-sullied winter air.

More Swallow emails recovered, probe’s price nears $4M » The Utah House committee working to finalize a report on its investigation of former Attorney General John Swallow continues to receive information, with some 400 additional emails recovered from Swallow’s home computer provided to the panel last week. The documents show Swallow’s direct knowledge of the efforts by the payday-lending industry to drive former Rep. Brad Daw, R-Orem, from office, said legislative counsel John Fellows.

Utah cockfighters say sport is tradition, not inhumane » Sixty years ago, Jamen White’s great grandfather bought a cock. And then he let it fight. White is a fourth-generation cockfighter. His family’s operation has grown to about 300 birds living on his property in Richfield. For the Whites and some other Utahns, cockfighting is a traditional sport.

In a decision released last week, a juvenile judge in Colorado decided that the now-6-year-old girl will continue to live primarily in Utah with the couple who have had custody of her since birth but also ruled that Manzanares can play an "important fatherly role" with visitation in both Utah and his current home state of New Mexico.
