The Salt Lake Tribune from Salt Lake City, Utah (2024)

I Show of Force or Keeping Peace? Officers Patrol Outside S.L. Mall By Vince Horiuchi THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE "Down with the fascist cops!" shouts 17-year-old "Mushroom" as he walks past the officer working security in front of Crossroads Plaza in Salt Lake City. But seconds later, two welldressed elderly people: say thank you to the Salt Lake City officer for giving them directions. Officer Robert Hawke and other officers hired to watch the front of the high-fashion Nordstrom store are construed as a blessing to shoppers or seen as an unnecessary show of force by some teen-agers. Since this small section of Main Street turned into a meeting place for teen-agers, it's been the upper-crust shoppers vs.

the street kids sporting green and orange hair. In recent weeks, a Salt Lake City police officer has been on station to keep the peace. "You have people who go to Nordstrom who are older people, and they see these young kids. They see the purple and green hair, and they're frightened," said Officer Hawke. "But these kids are good kids.

For the most part, if you ask them to do something, they'll do it." The area at 50 S. Main has traditionally been the meeting place for homeless panhandlers, gang members and teen-age dropouts. It is a place where 16-year-old Amber Wilford can find her friends and still go shopping or eat. "I can just hang out here, and I know my friends are here," she said. But shoppers and store owners in the mall have had enough.

First, classical music was piped through the mall's east entrance to drive away the teens, then wrought-iron sections were put on the planter boxes to prevent people from sitting on them. The additional security was the latest step, and it seems to be working. Ever since city police officers were hired to watch the storefront at the mall, the normal congregation of people has diminished. Nordstrom security manager Janene Dempsey started hiring the officers the first of September when the complaints started coming in about congestion on the sidewalk. "It was hard for our customers to get through to the doors, and it was hard for me as a security person to keep coming out and telling them to move.

We wanted something on a regular basis," said Ms. Dempsey. The officers were hired directly from Nordstrom. At least five officers work morning and evening shifts and are paid by the store, the mall and the Downtown Retail Merchants Association. There have been no major incidents since the officers started patrolling the section.

Downtown business people on lunch-hour shopping sprees like the difference the officers have made. "It's great to have them there," said Stacy Watkins, the manager over Nordstrom's jewelry department. "Customers have commented about it." A regular Nordstrom customer said she never used to enter the store through the east doors until the officers were hired. "It's the kids and the weird element," she said. Most teen-agers lounging on planter boxes immediately outside the store do not necessarily mind the show of police force.

They just wonder about the people who have complained about them. people with their suits and briefcases give me the weirdest looks," said Ms. Wilford, who spends the days on the sidewalk with friends. "They look at your hair or they look at your dirty fingernails, and they won't give you the time of who spends most of said "Turtle," 117-year-old front of the mall. "This is my home.

Nobody is going to take that away from Salt Lake City police officer Shelly Stevensen said most of the teen-agers "are pretty harmless." "Just hanging out and looking weird is not against the law, and it shouldn't be," she said. BYU Professor Deserves Assist In Naming Mountaintop, Ridge THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PROVO Stanley L. Welsh was ecstatic after getting word that the federal government had approved his request for naming a ridge and a mountaintop in Utah. "I saw the write-up in the newspaper and took it to work to show everyone," the Brigham Young University botany professor said. "I told them, 'It doesn't say it, but made the Welsh endured the painstaking process of naming a place or geographical feature in the United States.

Few people know the time, concern and sometimes controversy that goes into naming a mountain, basin, river, spring or canal. An expert on the expeditions of John C. Fremont, Welsh had asked that a ridge in Juab County and peak in Washington County be named after the first two people to lose their lives during Fremont's first expedition through Utah in 1843. For nearly 10 months, state and federal cartographers poring over maps and doublechecked historical facts to make sure Welsh's suggestion hadn't already been used and was valid. Finally, the U.S.

Board on Geographical Names gave its approval. As a botanist with a historical bent, Welsh has traveled throughout Utah for 40 years and knew the two sites were nameless. He thought the two people who died on Fremont's first expedition through Utah deserved some recognition. Jean Baptiste Tabeau "did amazing work, yet no one has paid tribute to him," Welsh said. Tabeau now has a peak in the Beaver Dam Mountains of Washington County named after him.

Tabeau was ambushed by Indians while looking for a lost mule near the Virgin River narrows. Another French Canadian explorer working for Fremont. Francois Badeau, has a small ridge in Juab County near Yuba Dam and directly above where he was killed by an accidental discharge of his gun. Welsh's experience wasn't unusual. The federal government goes to great lengths to standardize names of geographical locations and features because so many people The Salt Lake Tribune UTAH Tuesday, October 6, 1992 Officials: Strip Mining Unlikely in National Parks, Forests of Utah By Mike Gorrell THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE Strip mining is unlikely in Utah's national parks and forests, even if the Interior Department approves a policy change that technically could permit it.

That outlook is shared by an environmentalist, the director of Utah's Division of Oil, Gas and Mining and a Forest Service mining official. But all three said it will be interesting to see the ramifications of the policy change, which the Bush Administration is promoting as a means of. compensating mining interests that held "valid existing rights" to coal deposits within those areas before a 1977 law prohibited strip mining on federally protected lands. "I don't see it as a wholesale cause of concern for the protected lands in Utah." said Dianne Nielson of the state mining office. Utah has no strip mines since its coal reserves are buried deep underground, and there are few existing mineral rights within the national parks.

But she said the policy could affect proposals, including one under preparation by Andalex Resources to develop coal mines in the Kaiparowits Plateau. It all depends, Ms. Nielson said, on whether the policy applies strictly to mineral rights or to an entire mining operation, including access roads. A coal-haul road for the proposed Andalex mine crosses part of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, where mining is prohibited. Ms.

Nielson also wondered how the policy might impact existing oil-and-gas leases and private mineral holdings within proposed Bureau of Land Management wilderness areas. The broader perspective also concerns Rodney Greeno, a National Parks and Conservation Association staff representative in Salt Lake City. He said the Interior Department is "stretching" the definition of what constitutes a "valid existing mineral right." Mr. Greeno also perceived the proposed policy as "another brick in the Administration's wall to create a huge obstacle to environmental protection by having a wacko interpretation of privateownership While there are not substantial mineral holdings within Utah's national parks or national forests, he feared the policy could be construed to advance mining prospects in the Alton and Henry Mountain coal fields just outside of Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef national parks, respectively. "This is just an incredible windfall for development interests and an example of Bush Administration neglect of environmental interests," he said.

Steve Robison, a Forest Service specialist in coal and phosphate leasing, noted that most of Utah's coal mines exist below land's administered by his agency. "The coal seams are so deep, it's not economical to strip mine," he said. "All leases have stipulations that these will be mined only by underground mining Bill Provides $270 Million For Cleanup of Tailings THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The U.S. House passed an energy bill Monday that Rep. Wayne Owens says will provide funding for cleanup of contaminated uranium mill tailing sites in Utah and six other states.

Owen's: amendment to the bill would provide $270 million pay for cleanup of 60 million tons of radioactive tailings at those sites. "More needs to be done to investigate and clean up the hundreds of potentially radioactive sites in Utah," Owens said. "This money will help protect Utahns and the environment of our state against known radiation hazards, but it won't solve all the problems." A recent study by the Environmental Protection Agency identified 1,700 sites in Utah with potential radiation contamination, Owens said. That includes the Atlas Minerals site near Moab, where he said "radioactive waste is seeping into the Colorado River." The bill would establish cleanup standards for radiation-contaminated sites and also set up a program by the government and private sector to promote geothermal energy production.

Shea landowners, managers, search and rescue crews and road builders rely on the accuracy of federal maps. But labeling a hill or stream wasn't always so scrutinized.

According to the National Geographic Society, in the late 1800s federal officials were bewildered by names reaching Washington from the Western frontier especially American Indian names from Alaska that included different names or spellings for the same place, or the same name for different places. President Benjamin Harrison cleared up the confusion in 1890 by creating the geographic-names board that would determine which names the federal government would officially use. It set the standard for the rest of the country. In the first two years, 5,000 names were standardized. The two world wars touched off urgent demands for uniformity among thousands of foreign names.

Today, the board has approved nearly 7 million U.S. and foreign names. A Utah Geographic Names Committee submits as many as 60 names a year for the federal board's approval. "Approval by the federal board makes it official. Our recommendation just gives it some strength," said Jay Haymond, the committee's executive secretary.

To have some influence in the federal naming process, Utah created its nominating committee in 1976. Haymond said federal map makers welcomed the state's input to help standardize and verify the names to the thousands of geographical features in the Beehive State. In some cases, the name on the map isn't the same label used by the local community. "Cartography is an expression of local culture, and the committee established an entry point to provide this cultural information about Utah to the federal Haymond said. While a recommendation from the 13-member state board consisting of geologists, historians, cartographers and federal land managers may lend some weight to the nomination, it doesn't guarantee approval.
