Council: Suit was to protect city

“We’ve, in the past, handled coroner’s fees for students and faculty that have died on campus, as well,” Jones said. “Those were $1,200-$1,400 each.”
By going to court, he said, the relationship between the city and university — one state agency working with and conducting business with another state agency — was made clear.

Bulldogs make trip to Moscow

The ‘Dogs (3-5, 2-3) halted Utah State University 31-21 in Logan last weekend for the team’s first conference road victory in two years.
With that decision, Tech has now won two of its last three games. The lone loss of 45-31 to defending WAC champ Boise State University at Joe Aillet Stadium two weeks ago was deceiving, the final score not providing a true indictor of just how close the ‘Dogs had played the Broncos until the final nine minutes.

So now I charge myself and the community with following the lead of those who have set out to make this area, state, nation and the world a better, friendlier more loving and inviting place to live.

Expert: LPDC must adapt

“It was obvious to me that the center was a very good facility, structurally, but the operation is several years behind,” Creed said.
Changes to bring the facility up to speed could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, but Creed said the commission that runs the LPDC should compare that to high damages it could face in litigation.
“It’s not if, it’s when,” Creed said, again and again. He said cases of poor training and equipment have led to incidents that caused millions to be spent in courtrooms and in punitive damages.
