The December issue of Western Economic Developments, a monthly newsletter published by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Franscisco shows some positive trends for high tech growth in the western states.

The new issue of the Utah Economic and Business Review should be online soon.  The last issue had some good information on power generation and the grid in Utah.

Mayor Gerald Sherratt of Cedar City is calling the decision to join UTOPIA "the most important vote in the city's history."  Sherratt is the former president of Southern Utah University.  The new library at SUU is named after him and is an excellent online source of information. 

Roger Black was in Cedar City last night as residents debated the merits of the proposed fiber network.  Read more about it in The Spectrum or the Salt Lake Tribune.

I came across the Mountain West Digital Library which I had seen before, but has expanded since then.  It looks like an excellent service with access to 88 active CONTENTdm collections at universities in Utah and Nevada.
