Local News Sources

There are many small local news sources (including blogs) that cover local government much more in depth than what you find in the big media outlets or sometimes even on the local govt. website. Here are a few that I have become aware in Utah:
It would be really nice if each of these sources had an RSS feed.

Many of the university news sites now have RSS available, including:
Weber State has some new podcasts, some of which relate to state government.

Snow College South Sevier Center has an RSS feed of their events calendar.

In the process of reviewing this, I have added about a dozen new Utah government sites to the search engine. In the future, we will have a way to leverage all of the RSS / news feeds to create a statewide government news source that is as comprehensive as the site search or the services search.
