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.

Hyrum considers reducing water shares requirement

By Ryan M. Monk

October 23, 2006 | HYRUM -- The City Council held a public hearing considering reducing the city required water shares from 3 acre-feet per acre to 2 acre-feet.

Contract City Engineer Craig Neeley said the city should not look at the past agricultural use has been and look to the future of its full potential based on its zone designation. He warned that a move to 2 acre-feet per acre could leave the city short of water.

Hyrum resident Bruce Savage pointed out many farmers are now using sprinkler irrigation rather than the older system of flood irrigation.

"Flood irrigation uses at least two to three times as much water as sprinkling," he said.

Bart Baird said, "It's always better when supply is bigger than demand," urging the council not to lower the shares so the city wont be "just getting by."

Mayor Dean Howard wants sufficient water to sustain growth throughout Hyrum. "I don't think the price of water is going down," he said, every opportunity we have to purchase water we take.

The council did just that later in meeting by buying water stock totaling in $50,000 in a separate consideration.
