Last week, the Layton City Council unanimously approved a set of amendments to its landscaping ordinance, implementing a host of new water-saving requirements for all new development outside of most single-family residences.

Weber County to probe possible expansion of jail's medical, mental health facilities

OGDEN — Weber County officials have hired a contractor to look into expanding the county jail‘s medical and mental health facilities. The ultimate upshot could be a proposal to expand the facility, similar to the $8.7 million expansion of the Davis County Jail that started last February to augment medical offerings there. But things in Weber County haven’t reached that stage yet — Tuesday’s action by county commissioners only calls for an architect to evaluate needs and come up with upgrade proposals.

Letter: Omission of disabled student from cheerleading photo was cruel

The article in the June 17 Tribune about Shoreline Junior High in Davis District brought me to tears. It’s hard to believe that a school in this day and age could be so unforgivably cruel to one of its students -- deliberately publishing a photo that excluded a disabled student from the cheerleading squad. This discriminatory action by the school officials should not go unpunished. If there is anything to be learned at that school, it should be about acceptance of our fellow human beings.
