A three-judge federal panel on Tuesday dismissed Utah's complaint that it lost a congressional seat because the Census Bureau did not count Utah residents who are Mormon missionaries overseas. The judges in a unanimous ruling said the missionaries represent only a fraction of Americans living overseas and that counting them would give Utah a huge advantage over other states.

A federal judge said Wednesday it would be "wildly" unfair to count Utah's Mormon missionaries overseas in the 2000 census because other Americans abroad cannot be counted so easily. "Including only missionaries would not advance the cause of equal representation," said Stephen Anderson, a U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge.

Thanks to U.S. troops and diplomats living abroad, North Carolina gained an unexpected U.S. House seat at Utah's expense. The Tarheel State, which has a large military population, added a 13th House seat while Utah missed getting a fourth seat by fewer than 1,000 people, according to census figures disclosed Thursday. North Carolina's surprise gain came because the apportionment figures include overseas military and diplomatic residents.

It was 9:15 on the night of May 27, and Cara Vanni was chatting with a friend on the phone, just like any number of San Clemente teen-agers. Suddenly the line went dead. A minute later, strangers appeared in her bedroom doorway. "My parents brought these three people into my room," Cara, 16, recalled. "At first I thought they were old friends of the family who were about to say they knew me when I was 4. They weren't."

At a hearing Tuesday before state liquor officials, the church repeated its stand that "existing policies on alcohol use are sound and should not be liberalized. The state should strictly control the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages."

If this country wants to get its fiscal house in order, the thinking goes, it needs all the money it can get. And in the small town of Vernal, Utah -- population 9,248 -- George Burnett is doing his part. The owner of “I Love Drilling Juice & Smoothie Bar” is charging self-identified liberal customers $1 more than their conservative counterparts for a 16-ounce smoothie, The Times reported Tuesday. So let me get this straight. Burnett, whose business is in Uintah County -- where 10,001 voters, or 90%, went for Mitt Romney and most of the remaining votes went to liberals -- is taxing the 10% a buck apiece?

Nevada leads the nation in the rate of smoking-related deaths, while the Mormon Church's prohibition against using tobacco keeps Utah relatively smoke-free. Overall, smoking-related deaths are declining.
