Local news items:

1. I heard Layton is cutting taxes because it took in more than expected. Way to go! Glad to hear one city has people looking out for taxpayers. For Bountiful residents, don’t hold you breath on this happening under similar circumstances.

2. In election news, Bountiful remains a democrat stronghold but narrowly this time (some good there) by getting Becky Edwards through her primary. Brace yourself for more big government votes.
