Putting Your Garden to 'Bed' for the Winter

Autumn in the Ogden Valley is amazing. The shadows are so defined, the light is amazing, the color show seems to go on and on.

This can make it difficult to know what to do and when to put your garden to 'bed' for the

Do banks commit fraud? Do they steer appraisals? They do.

There is so much talk about how borrowers have defrauded the system and manipulated appraisals. Which I have no doubt they have but I represent several distressed borrowers trying to work out short sales and the lack of integrity on the part of some banks (not all of them) is astounding.

Ogden Valley issues were the focus of a packed Weber County Commission agenda.

Several residents turned out to let commissioners know they want to preserve the rural atmosphere of the valley.

At three separate public hearings, residents and workers asked commissioners to not allow more rezones for large equipment storage, reconsider allowing internally lighted signs and reject a transportation plan that allows for a possible road through sensitive lands.

Thom Summers, with S&S Excavating in Eden, said he believes the county is unfair to rezone land to allow other businesses more space to store large construction equipment, as no other companies have expressed an interest in buying any of the land currently available for that use.
