Just out of reach

A manhole cover fell deeper into the hole it was covering, causing it to become a tripping hazard. Weber State police received a call about this hazard on Jan. 30 around 7:30 p.m. The officer attempted to resolve the issue, but the cover was difficult to reach. The officer contacted the WSU heat plant to put in a maintenance call.

Suspicious visitor
