    I could hardly believe what a Republican Governor said about not appointing an Energy Solutions representative to the Oversight Board. Energy Solutions isn't a company that many politicians want to even appear to be taking an opposing view. Many have been afraid of the company or have been elected to office with help from Energy Solutions. If Gov. Herbert's appointment nominee really ends up with little or no ties to Energy Solution, that will really send a message to Utahns about the public interest focus on this Governor. He isn't making it easy for a moderate Democrat to vote against him.

    Governor Herbert needs to look at oversight on the state's education board. Look at Utah's education needs, then look at where the money is going. While there is a real need for improved education, according to USA Today $10 million is going to subsidize BCS athletics programs at the University of Utah. It is time for the UU to quit stealing from kindergarten, as they are beneficiaries of a billion dollar TV contract. Education funding should be for education - not the BCS.

    Peter Cooke poses an excellent question. Would this have happened if he had not been running for the office?

    Herbert needs to go.

    Cooke needs to be elected.
