Thursday Morning Ogden City News Roundup - Updated

Two special public events... and a link to a chirpy "good news" story, for good measure

There's not much happening on the red meat news political front this morning folks; but as far as we're concerned, that's no reason to sit on our blogmeister thumbs. In that connection, we'll kickstart the discussion with reminders of two special events calendered for this evening, and throw in a link to a chirpy good news story, for good measure:

1) Tonight's the night for the Weber County Republican Party Nominating Convention, where there's one particularly interesting nomination item on the agenda. Squaring off for Weber County GOP delegates' approval this evening for the Weber County Commission Seat "C" nomination are current Weber County GOP Chairman Matt Bell, and a familiar WCF face, our old WCF pal, former OPD Police Chief/State Senator Jon Greiner. Ace Reporter Schwebke provides the full lowdown with this morning's Standard-Examiner story:
For those WCF readers/GOP delegates who may be still sitting on the fence, we'll wholeheartedly give warhorse Republican Matt Bell our enthusiastic endorsement, for what that's worth. If that isn't good enough however, we'll link this 4/9/12 Weber County Sheriff Terry Thompson endorsement letter, with which sentiment we agree 100%.

Unlike some crankier folks, it's not that we have anything in particular against Chief Greiner. We just happen to believe that Chairman Bell is the superior choice. Besides, after an illustrious 38-year law enforcement career... we believe that Jon Greiner deserves to begin enjoying his several retirements and spend a lot more pleasurable time on the golf course improving his stroke.

2) As a followup to our earlier public announcement, we'll again remind our civil rights-minded WCF readers of tonight's public event at the Weber County Main Library at 7:30 p.m., where Law Enforcement Against Prohibition's David Goddridge will present an informational workshop/seminar. Salt Lake City Weekly provides the story:
For those interested in learning more about the problems with our state and nation’s drug laws and policies, be sure to check out this event.

3) Good news from the Standard this morning for our Ogden City Schools, who always seem to get a bad rap:
Ogden High School is your blogmeister's own alma mater folks, so with considerable OHS Tiger pride, we'll hand out a Weber County Forum Tip O' The Hat to Ogden High School administrators and teachers, for working their butts off to promote academic excellence.

That's it for now, folks.

Who'll be the first to throw in their own 2¢?

Update 4/12/12 11:50 p.m.: The both Standard and the Tribune carry reports on tonight's LEAP informational event:
Update 4/13/12 6:30 a.m.: The results are in from last night's Weber County Republican Convention:

Matt Bell 70% Jon Greiner 30% But the delegates gave Greiner a standing ovation for all his hard work in the community. Read this morning's S-E story:
