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.

Wellsville P&Z approves kitchen canning supply business

By Landon Bench

October 13, 2006 | WELLSVILLE -- Scott Page, president of Highland Brands, LLC, was approved yesterday by the Wellsville City Planning and Zoning Committee for a new home occupation at 65 S. 450 East.

Page, 46, started his company four years ago, in 2002. Highland Brands is an online canning and kitchen supply store, dealing with blenders, juice machines, canning, pickling, even emergency supplies.

He started in South Jordan, where he lives now, out of a four-car garage, and will be moving to Wellsville with a 1,700 square-foot barn as his new base of operations. He currently has one employee but says he is looking for more. All orders from his website will be shipped out to the customer from the barn.

Page grew up in Sugarhouse, but loves a nice agricultural setting. At the planning and zoning meeting, Page showed up adorned in classic Western-wear. From his tanned leather boots to a proud, oversized belt buckle, he looked anxious to settle into the small city.

When asked if he was ready for Wellsville he laughed and replied, "Sure I'm ready." He also said he was "real excited" to move and that he was tired of the noise, traffic and pollution that plagues South Jordan.

He's going to like it in Wellsville.
