Former College of Eastern Utah men's basketball coach accepts coaching position at a Utah high school.

Former College of Eastern Utah men's basketball coach Ronnie Stubbs accepted a coaching position at West High School. Stubbs, coached the CEU men's basketball team for nine years, then moved on to a junior college in Texas where he assisted the head basketball coach. Stubbs then moved on to Loyola Marymount where he offered his coaching expertise for three years.

Stubbs was named to the West High coaching staff after beating out several high-profile applicants for the job including former Bingham coach George Sluga.

Stubbs is no stranger to the school where he has been a hall monitor and substitute geography teacher for the past several months.

Although Stubbs did not intend to become coach when he began working at the school, the opportunity arose and Stubbs answered. Next season will begin Stubbs' run as head basketball coach.

Emergency fishing regulation changes declared at four southeastern waters.

Four Southeastern Utah Waters

Anglers who time it right should be in for some great summer fishing at four southeastern Utah waters where the Division of Wildlife Resources has liberalized limits.

Effective immediately, the daily bag and possession limits have been doubled for all game fish in Cleveland Reservoir, Miller Flat Reservoir and Monticello Lake and Recapture Reservoir.

The liberalized limits will remain in effect until Nov. 1, 2002. At this time, the limits for all species at all these waters will revert back to the original limits set for 2002.

"Three of these reservoirs are being drained or drawn down because of drought conditions in southeastern Utah," explained Tom Pettengill, sport fisheries coordinator for DWR. "Monticello Lake, the fourth water, is being drained so repairs can be made to the dam. Therefore, the liberalized limits will allow anglers to take fish that will be lost because of the dewatering."

Pettengill explains that fishing this summer should be good for anglers who fish the reservoirs at the right time. "At each water there will be a period of time when the water will be low enough that fish will be somewhat congregated, but there will still be enough water that the fish will actively feed," Pettengill stated. "Anglers who fish during that time period should do really well. Soon after that, the waters will be drained, or close to drained, and fishing will be over for the summer."

Anglers 14 years of age and older are reminded that they still need a fishing license to fish these waters.
