Gary Herbert makes me not hate him so much

When politicians do a good thing, we need to show them some praise.


Gov. Gary Herbert is poised to sign a conservation easement that will protect 252 acres -- the site of an ancient Indian village -- from development of a train station and commercial project along the Jordan River in Draper, his spokeswoman confirmed Monday night.

The easement would take away one of four alternatives for a future Utah Transit Authority train station, one that UTA at one point considered its top choice.

Representatives of Utah's Indian tribes and Utah Open Lands praised the long-awaited easement, which they said will preserve a significant natural and cultural resource.
