Organization says UDOT move to allow trucks and higher speeds on Legacy Parkway is irresponsible

DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — The Utah Department of Transportation has announced speed limits on Davis County’s Legacy Parkway will increase to 65 mph beginning January 1, and large trucks will also be allowed to use the parkway.

The speed limit on the route was initially set at 55 mph and semitrailers with five or more axles (or 80,000 pounds or greater gross vehicle weight) were prohibited in accordance with an agreement signed in 2005. The agreement ended litigation that halted the construction of the 14-mile, four-lane roadway.

The settlement agreement expires on January 1, 2020.

Since 2017, five cities across Davis County passed resolutions asking UDOT to extend the agreement:

  • West Bountiful
  • Woods Cross
  • Centerville
  • North Salt Lake
  • Farmington

State legislators attempted to pass bills that would extend the agreement, but their initiatives were voted down.

Angie Keeton, the founder of “Save Legacy Parkway” said organizations across the valley are now trying to negotiate with UDOT. Many homeowners do not want changes due to Legacy Parkway’s lack of collisions and lack of noise pollution.

“It’ll be like having a blender running in your house,” Keeton said. “The vibrations of heavy trucks can often do damage to structures nearby… I cannot understand why (UDOT) would take the taxpayer’s investment in this roadway and throw it away and simply turn it into another I-15. We don’t need another I-15.”

“We don’t really have the authority to ban trucks from any of our roads,” said John Gleason, a spokesperson for UDOT.

Keeton and other environmental groups disagree, citing the settlement signed in 2005.

“It says, ‘UDOT could consider the need’ to allow trucks and raise the speed limit,” Keeton said. “It also allows UDOT the option to continue the truck ban… If UDOT really wants to meet their goal of zero fatalities, they will consider keeping safe roadways safe.”

“The Agreement was a great thing because it allowed us to complete a roadway that has made a real difference in mobility in south Davis County,” UDOT Traffic and Safety Director Robert Miles told Transportation Commissioners. “But the Agreement had a sunset date: Jan. 1, 2020. The only way that sunset could be extended is through legislative action, and the legislature has chosen not to extend it. So the Agreement expires Jan. 1.”

UDOT speed studies indicate drivers are already averaging between 65 and 70 mph on Legacy Pkwy., despite the current 55 mph speed limit.

“Legacy Parkway was designed to accommodate speeds higher than 55 miles per hour, so it is safe and comfortable to drive at 65,” Miles said. “We decided to raise the speed limit to a speed that is closer to what drivers are actually driving. In doing so, we hope to eliminate the safety risk of speed discrepancy, which can happen when you have a significant difference between the speed most drivers are actually traveling and those who are driving the posted speed limit.”

Representatives with Save Legacy Parkway and Utahns for Better Transportation now say, without some sort of a compromise, things may revert to how they were in 2005 – with the threat of a lawsuit.

State Agrees Some Statements From Cristhian Rivera Should be Suppressed

POWESHIEK COUNTY, Iowa — State attorneys have agreed that some statements made by the man accused of killing Mollie Tibbetts should not be used in court.

Attorneys for Cristhian Rivera have argued since March that Rivera’s Miranda rights were violated and that certain evidence should be excluded from trial.

Rivera, an undocumented immigrant, is facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of the 20-year-old University of Iowa student.

Rivera’s attorneys want his alleged confession thrown out as well as evidence found during a search of his car excluded because they claim their client wasn’t read his Miranda rights. Investigators say Tibbetts’ blood was found during that search.

Attorneys for Rivera say he was not properly advised of his rights before his interview with police, and therefore, the entire confession should not be allowed at trial.

On Friday, state attorneys filed documents saying they agree that the first Miranda warning given to Rivera was incomplete because the officer did not inform him that anything he said could be used against him in court. The state agrees that any statements Rivera made between then and a few hours later when his Miranda rights were read to him a second time should be suppressed.

A judge is expected to rule on this Oct. 22. Rivera’s trial is set for Feb. 4.

Utah’s first-ever ‘DeafTown’ shows you don’t have to hear to succeed

SALT LAKE CITY — For the first time ever in Utah and just the second time nationwide, the Junior Achievement “Biz Town” program became “DeafTown” for two days in Salt Lake City.

Students from Utah, Idaho and Colorado met during their Fall break to learn about managing finances and running a business on Thursday.

On Friday, they put the learning into action.

“I thought it would be difficult,” said Isabella Holladay as she took a break from managing a faux Maverik Convenience store set up on the fourth floor of the Children’s Discovery Museum in Salt Lake City’s Gateway Mall.

“I do need to learn job skills as well. It’s very important that you work and you’re able to pay for things like food and groceries. If you don’t work you can’t afford those things,” Holladay explained.

Michelle Tanner, Associate Superintendent for the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind, said the program proves what is clear to her.

“Their options are limitless,” Tanner said.

Yankees pitcher, Vallejo native CC Sabathia dislocates shoulder, big league career over

NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia walked into Yankee Stadium’s interview room with his left arm in a sling Friday, 16 hours after shuffling off the mound in pain following the 58,692nd and final pitch of his major league career.

That powerful left shoulder — which earned six All-Star appearances, the 2007 AL Cy Young Award and possibly a spot in the Hall of Fame — finally had given out.

“I think it’s just kind of fitting,” he said . “I threw until I couldn’t anymore.”

His burly body — 6-foot-6, 300 pounds and perhaps a tad more — had echoed the decision he announced last winter.

No second thoughts about retirement following 19 major league seasons. No temptation for more, the 39-year-old explained to his wife.

“I told Amber last night that this was the best way for it to end for me because of the way I’ve been feeling, loving the bullpen, jogging out, feeling pretty good, I feel like about July of next year I’ll be like, ‘I think I can pitch,’” he said.

He dislocated a joint in his pitching shoulder during the eighth inning of New York’s Game 4 loss to Houston on his 17th pitch, then pushed his arm through three more before the torment became too great. He was dropped from the Yankees’ AL Championship Series roster Friday before Game 5 and replaced by right-hander Ben Heller.

New York trailed 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, and even if the Yankees advance, Sabathia would not be eligible to return for the World Series. He said he will have an MRI to determine whether he needs surgery.

“I was in a pretty good amount of pain last night and today. Waking up, I didn’t sleep that good,” Sabathia said. “It’s pretty sore and the pain has been pretty intense since that pitch.”

Tributes came from throughout baseball. His arm may have betrayed Sabathia, but teammates and opponents spoke of his heart.

“CC is such a big man and big personality of a big man,” said Houston manager AJ Hinch, who caught Sabathia during spring training with Cleveland in 2003. “If he wanted to stay as a left-handed reliever, teams would line up to let him keep pitching.”

Sabathia finished with a 251-161 regular season record with 3,093 strikeouts. He announced before the season that this was going to be his last year, and he made four trips to the injured list caused by his balky right knee, repaired by surgeries after the 2010 season, in July 2014 and again after the 2016 and ’18 seasons. He needed a brace on the knee to pitch along with periodic injections of painkillers and lubricant.

Modern medicine and a grueling, 2 ½-hour warmup routine enabled him to throw 56,405 pitches in the regular season and 2,287 more in the postseason, according to STATS. He knows his career may have been shortened by his warhorse performance for Milwaukee in 2008, when he was acquired from Cleveland after 7½ seasons with the Indians.

Trying to earn the Brewers’ first playoff berth in 26 years, he pitched three straight times on three days’ rest in September, the last a four-hit complete game to clinch a wild-card berth on the regular season’s final day. He came back on short rest again and lost Game 2 of the Division Series to Philadelphia.

Sabathia was on the verge of becoming a free agent, yet showed no concern about damaging the arm that earned his living.

“Everybody told me I was crazy,” he said. “I wish I could have pitched three more times. That team was so good. We were having so much fun.”

He signed a $161 million, seven-year contract with the Yankees that offseason, brought to the Bronx to change the culture and bolster the rotation. He led the Yankees to a World Series title in his first season and so desperately wanted to return. He even moved to the bullpen in late September this year, then overcame a shoulder injury to return against the Astros.

Sabathia said he was hurt on a 92 mph cutter that Aledmys Díaz popped up.

“When I released the ball, my shoulder kind of went with it,” Sabathia said.

He remained in for three more pitches to George Springer, still reaching 91 mph. He walked off the mound toward second, making a stretching motion with his arm. Head athletic trainer Steve Donahue came to the mound and Sabathia tried a warmup toss, hoping somehow to push through, but he had to leave.

“It’s kind of a perfect way,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “He gave us everything he had, and he left it all out on the mound. Even though it’s sad to see him walking out, there’s something kind of awesome about it in a weird way, too.”

Springer and Houston ace Gerrit Cole joined in the fans’ applause as Sabathia walked off to a standing ovation.

“I think that’s what got me more emotional than the actual injury, just hearing the fans and the way that they were cheering me,” he said. “Makes me feel good. Makes me feel like I made the right choice 11 years ago.”

When he reached the dugout, his face contorted, Sabathia took four steps down toward the clubhouse, then sat near the bottom, his back to the field, as Donahue tried to console him.

“Every single time he went out there, you had to rip the ball or his jersey off to get him off that mound,” Yankees slugger Aaron Judge said. “He got everything out of that arm. That’s a warrior right there.”

Stuart Community Shaken up by Officer-Involved Shooting

STUART, Iowa — The Stuart community is very shaken up by recent events at South Summit Apartments.

Residents said they are shocked by the officer-involved shooting and sexual assault that happened in a matter of two days in their neighborhood.

“I couldn’t believe it had happened and I was worried about the Stuart people, the police and EMS people that were involved because we know these people. We’ve lived here for a very long time,” Stuart resident Donna Olson said.

Olson said as a teacher and long time resident, she’s always considered the town to be very safe.

“It’s very worrisome. I mean, we’ve had two events now here in this community that are horrendous within a couple days and it is scary. You worry about the young people, with so many young families that live out in that area. I worried this morning about the children getting on the school bus and how this might affect their day,” Olson said.

Another neighbor, Gary Faust, said he didn’t hear the commotion of the incident, but he did hear life-flight helicopters landing and taking off near his backyard very early Friday morning.

“In a small town of like 1,700 people, it blows your mind when you’re in a house this close to what’s happening in your neighborhood,” Faust said.

Olson said she is worried about the officers and their families and also others who live in the apartment complex who had to witness the incident.

“I hope it’s not a trend. I truly do. I hope it’s just something where we had one or two people that were more transient that were in this area, and hopefully they will be punished for what they have done. And maybe our community can get back to being the safe, friendly community it has always been,” Olson said.

Former Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich Says He’s Now for Impeaching Trump

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich said President Donald Trump should be impeached, a major switch for a former Republican presidential candidate who had previously said there was not enough evidence to impeach the President.

Kasich, who’s a CNN senior political commentator, told CNN’s Ana Cabrera Friday the “final straw” for him was White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s Thursday admission that military aid was withheld from Ukraine in order to pressure that country for investigations into Democrats.

“But if you are asking me if I was sitting in the House of Representatives today and you were to ask me how do I feel, do I think impeachment should move forward and should go for a full examination and a trial in the United States Senate, my vote would be yes.” Kasich said on CNN’s “Newsroom.”

Kaisch’s support for impeachment breaks with his party’s overall stance. While he did not directly call for Trump’s removal from office, stating he would need see to the articles of impeachment before making that decision, his statements make Kasich one of the few high profile Republicans who have agreed with Democrats that Trump should impeached.

Kasich had previously said in interviews that he did not think Trump shoud be impeached because he didn’t see a clear quid pro quo.

“In reading that transcript, I did not see a clear quid pro quo,” Kasich said in an October 8 interview on “CNN Tonight.”

“If you have an impeachment that doesn’t bring the Republicans along, and this is done strictly along party line votes, this is going to end up not helping this country,” he added,

The Ohio Republican said the events of Thursday afternoon — Mulvaney’s admission of a quid pro quo and the announcement of the resignation of Energy Secretary Rick Perry chief among them — caused him to rethink his stance.

“The last 24 hours have really forced me to review this,” Kasich said.

At a news conference, Mulvaney confirmed that Trump froze nearly $400 million in US security aid to Ukraine in part to pressure that country into investigating Democrats. He then attempted to claim that he did not admit to the quid pro quo a few hours later. This change in narrative, said Kasich, left him “uneasy.”

“When I look at all the information that is coming to us, and all the craziness that is surrounding the operation of the White House, now the resignation sometime this year of Secretary Perry and his involvement, it just goes on and on and on and on.”

“I fought with people on the air about ‘Is there a quid-pro-quo?’ and ‘Does this rise to the level of impeachment?’ I now believe that it does,” he continued. “At this point, there is a big cloud and I think it has to be cleared.”

While he admitted that it was “extremely difficult” for him to publicly announce support for impeachment, he called on other Republicans to do the same, saying he believes Republicans “should at least be calling for an inquiry.”

“If Barack Obama had been doing something like this, Republicans would be going crazy,” he claimed. “Now it’s their own guy doing it. What’s fair is fair.”

Kasich urged Republicans to “look at yourself and say, ‘What do we expect out of the President? How do we expect the President to conduct foreign policy? Are there some lines that simply cannot be crossed?”

“It is very difficult for a Republican to come out and say anything like this because they’re going to get attacked at home. …You gotta be willing to take the heat, frankly,” he said.

Kasich did echo another party line in the interview, calling for Democrats in the House to vote to formalize an “open” and “clear” impeachment inquiry in order “to get all the facts out there so that people can understand what’s at risk.”
