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.

Where Paradise ends is still up in the air

By Rebekah Bradway

October 23, 2006 | PARADISE -- Cache County and Paradise are still at odds about the town's exact west corporate limit although an engineer recently surveyed the town. The City Council discussed the problem Wednesday evening.

"There's a discrepancy between what the county has and what the legal has," Ryan Obray said. "We've got to define that line now."

Obray wants to build on a lot in the area of the unsure limits.

A Hansen & Associates engineer, instructed by town engineer Christ Wight, surveyed the town, but the new recorded limits still don't match the county's.

"The problem is that there is still some overlay," Mayor Lee Atwood said.

"Whoever's been paying the taxes is where the line is," Councilwoman Margaret Obray said.

The recorded boundary had some of the Paradise taxpayers outside of the corporate limits.

"There has to be a court ruling somewhere that has some precedence on this. We can't be the only screwed-up place," Councilman Leland Howlett said. "There's got to be an established way to resolve this."

The council told Ryan Obray to start getting the paperwork done to annex the lot he wants to build on into the city.

"At this point, the resolve is looking at annexing," Atwood said. "We would make our corporate limits bigger."

Obray said, "I'm not opposed to being annexed."
