Today's word on journalism

Friday, November 10, 2006

Q&A with Ed Bradley:

Q: What single issue should be covered more at CBS News?
A: Foreign news.

Q: Have you ever been assigned a story you objected to? How did you deal with it?
A: When I first started in New York at WCBS radio, the assignment editor automatically assigned any story that had a minority in it to me. I objected to being typecast and told him if I didn't get a variety of stories -- as other reporters did -- then I would take it up with the news director.

Q: If you were not in news, what would you be doing?
A: If I had the talent, I'd play bass guitar and sing in a kicking band.

USU students plan to research Powder Mountain's effect on Paradise

By Rebekah Bradway

October 6, 2006 | PARADISE -- The Town Council agreed to work with USU students and a professor regarding landscape issues during their meeting Wednesday evening.

Peter Kumble, a professor in USU's department of landscape architecture and environmental planning, spoke to the council about students researching Powder Mountain and the mountain's effect on the character of Paradise's landscape.

Kumble said, "Cache Valley is changing faster than a lot of people are comfortable with."

Kumble works with a graduate studio that focuses on regional land use issues on a broader scale. He plans on about six graduate students working with him on this project. The researchers want to look at issues in southern Cache County and commerce interest in Paradise. They plan on talking to Paradise landowners and business owners.

"What are your future dreams of Paradise?" Kumble asked the council. "How can we be of service to you?" He said the group would be researching how realistic it is for Paradise's landscape to stay the same, and they would look at different scenarios of changes in southern Cache County.

Kumble said the research should last about 11 weeks. He gave his card to Mayor Lee Atwood to contact him for further information.

In other business, the council:
-- declared that the exact town boundaries should be known and ready to apply to any concerns by the next council meeting, Oct. 18.
-- decided to pay for snow removal the same way as the year before, hour by hour.
-- went into executive session to discuss personnel and legal issues.
