Don’t let the first two weeks of the duck hunt fool you -- plenty of ducks will wing their way through Utah’s marshes this season.
Despite good water conditions, the number of ducks that nested on marshes near the Great Salt Lake last spring was down 30 percent from 2009.

Lawson Toomer, Morgan High senior, had an outstanding game against Salem Hills last week. He scored four touchdowns for Morgan and had 190 rushing yards. He helped his Trojans to a 40-12 victory over the Skyhawks.
I predict Morgan will beat 3A Defending Champions, the Juan Diego Soaring Eagles on Friday, Sept 17, 2010 at Trojan Field. This game will be Morgan Highs Homecoming game!
I think the score will be MHS 46 Juan Diego 21!
