Hatch, Tribune Trade Barbs Over 'Utahn Of The Year' Editorial

Hatch, Tribune Trade Barbs Over 'Utahn Of The Year' Editorial

Hatch tweeted a picture of The Salt Lake Tribune's December 25th cover which featured a picture of him and the caption "Utahn of The Year".

In a blistering editorial, Utah's largest newspaper urged Sen.

This year, before naming Hatch as the Utahn of the Year, the newspaper's editorial writers took pains to clarify that the honor is not necessarily an honor. "For the record, I voted for @SpencerJCox and @rudygobert27", Hatch's tweet said.

The piece, which explains the logic behind Hatch's selection - "lest our readers, or the honoree himself, get the wrong impression" - is far from flattering.

After United took the lead they were fortunate not to fall further behind, but showed character to come back and equalise. Mata equalised on 40 minutes with a precise finish, rolling the ball into the far corner from the middle of the box.

Mr. Hatch, a Republican, said on Twitter that he was "grateful for this great Christmas honor from the Salt Lake Tribune". "The criteria are not set in stone". Has had the biggest impact.

"It would be good for Utah if Hatch, having finally caught the Great White Whale of tax reform, were to call it a career", the Tribune's editorial board said.

But Matt Whitlock, Hatch's communications director, made clear in a Tuesday tweet that Hatch's seemingly approving tweet was "tongue-in-cheek".

Though the publication wrote of Hatch's major role in passing Republicans' tax overhaul in a more positive light, the editorial board wrote that the legislation's passage was all the more reason for him to retire from office after serving for more than 40 years.

He eventually was given the weekend sports assignment, and began doing high school and college football game broadcasts. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said flowers will be placed on Friday on Enberg's star on the Walk of Fame.

The Salt Lake Tribune named Hatch their "Utahn of the Year", an honor the paper said is given to an impactful Utahn, whether their contributions were "for good or for ill".

Hatch, who is the Senate's longest-serving member with 42 years of service, has always been one of the staunchest conservatives in the chamber.

"To all appearances - appearances promoted by Hatch - this anti-environmental, anti-Native American and, yes, anti-business decommissioning of national monuments was basically a political favor the White House did for Hatch", the Salt Lake Tribune reported. "Hatch has moved to freeze the field to make it nigh unto impossible for any number of would-be senators to so much as mount a credible challenge".

Notably, Hatch didn't post a link to the stories- only including a screen-shot of the headline supposedly "lauding" him.

They have opened a shelter at the First Baptist Church on East Main Street in Spartanburg for those residents. The Red Cross assisted both families, which included four adults, three children and their pets.

The Tribune selected the Republican senator as their "Utahn of the Year" over the weekend for his consequential role in helping pass the first sweeping rewrite of the nation's tax code in over 30 years, and, more controversially, persuading President Donald Trump to scale back two national monuments in southern Utah.
