Today's word on journalism

December 15, 2008

As part of my own personal "war on Christmas" (which a Utah state senator has offered legislation to outlaw), the WORD celebrates the season by going on hiatus until January. May all out days be merry and bright, and here’s to a safe, healthy and saner New Year. HoHoHo!

Empty Minds: "Of all the people expressing their mental vacuity, none has a better excuse for an empty head than the newspaperman: If he pauses to restock his brain, he invites onrushing deadlines to trample him flat. Broadcasting the contents of empty minds is what most of us do most of the time, and nobody more relentlessly than I."

--Russell Baker, Pulitzer-winning columnist

Officers responded to complaint by a resident near 62 E. 300 North that they could smell marijuana coming from next door. When the police arrived at the location, they could smell marijuana when the residents of the home opened their door.

Police said Zachary K. Yocom admitted to participating in the use of the drug. He was arrested and booked on counts of possession of marijuana, a third-degree felony, and drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.
