ST. GEORGE, UTAH (AP) - Arizona and Utah wildlife officials are considering a plan to kill off an invasive species in an effort to protect another fish in the Virgin River.
The Spectrum reports wildlife officials are meeting Wednesday in Mesquite to discuss the plan. It would involve using the chemical rotenone to kill off the red shiner and restore habitat for the rare woundfin.
Officials say the plan calls for treating the river this summer, and would involve restricting some access to the river.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Mormon church is warning a group of women pushing for gender equality that will not be allowed to protest in Temple Square next month during a biannual conference.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints told the members of Ordain Women in a letter sent Monday that if they insist on going forward with their plans, they'll need to protest in a zone set aside for protestors on the street.
The church said activist events detract from the sacred environment of the weekend conference in Salt Lake City.
