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.

North Logan sets public hearings for proposed land-use regulations

By Erin Wadsworth

October 30, 2006 | NORTH LOGAN -- Interests in the new Land-use Element are being sought by North Logan's Planning Commission and City Council.

Outlining the community's growth, development and community participation, the land-use element regulates how land throughout the city is to be used. Public hearings will give the population an opportunity to be heard in an open forum where they might listen to each other, participating in a decision that will aide in the future development of their city.

Public hearings have been set for Nov. 9 and Dec. 14 at 8:30 p.m. in the North Logan City Library.

Planning commissioners approved the latest draft of the document Sept. 14, then passed it on to the council for approval. On Oct. 5, Planning Commission Chairman Keith Christensen presented the draft to the council.

As City Planning Director Cordell Batt explained, both commission and council are expecting general questions about the basis of the information used to produce the land-use element. Because the document deals with overall land use in North Logan it is difficult to estimate exactly what types of questions will be asked, Batt said.

Citizens can view a copy of the document on the North Logan Web site,
