Things They Left Behind

Demolition began at the Far West Motel in Kaysville Wednesday, August 24, 2011. The 44-year-old motel and other buildings on Main Street will be cleared to make room for a $6.5 million townhouse development on the 2.9-acre site, now owned by Destination Homes. Residents received an eviction notice from the owner in July and left behind many personal items.

Standoff in Farr West

Brenda Gallegos hugs a member of the negotiation team after extended standoff in Farr West ended peacefully with the suspect, her son, Lance Gallegos, 23, unhurt and in custody, headed to the Weber County Jail. His pregnant wife, right, Kristyn Kuck, is due in a few days. Sheriff’s Lt. Chad Ferrin said the standoff started around 1:30 p.m when the suspect fled his own house on 1300 North and ran to a neighbor’s. He said the warrants were just for misdemeanors — traffic or minor criminal offenses — but "he decided he wasn’t quite ready to go to jail yet."
