(Cedar City, UT) -- At a special meeting Wednesday evening, the Iron County School District voted unanimously to grant Intermountain Healthcare the bid to put an athletic trainer in each of the three high schools in the county: Cedar High, Canyon View High and Parowan High. Ted Hugunin, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Dixie Regional Medical Center says Iron County families will be surprised at the value an athletic trainer will be to a high school. The school district agreed to pay 7-thousand dollars a year per high school for the trainers, while Intermountain pays the rest of the trainer salary and benefits package, and also pays for trainings and supplies. Hiring happens this month, followed by a two month orientation to be ready in time for football season the first week in August.

(Salt Lake City, UT) -- The University of Utah is issuing an apology for a fertility clinic mix-up that happened more than 20 years ago.

But the San Antonio couple says the apology is insufficient. The Branums say they will release an official response to the university's admission sometime today.
