MORE SUNSHINE ON TAP FOR WEEKEND IN OGDEN The weather prescription for Northern Utah this weekend calls for repeated doses of sunshine and continued mild temperatures. With mostly sunny skies and a zero probability of rain, Ogden area residents are expected to take advantage of the balmy weather by doing a little pre-season boating and picnicking. Highs today are forecast for the mid-70s with the mercury expected to drop to the mid-40s tonight; the high tomorrow is forecast for the high 70s. At Pine View Dam, the high Thursday was 67 degrees but the temperature plummeted to 32 degrees last night. The water in the reservoir is still rising and currently is hitting 92.6 feet; waters are still being released to prevent flooding due to heavy snowmelt.

Army Reservists Remove Eyesores DEFENSE DEPOT OGDEN -- Ecology-minded Army reservists with headquarters here concentrated their efforts during the last 30 days in cleaning up the environment. Members of the Sixth. Battalion, 83rd Field Artillery identified and removed local eyesores as part of a community improvement program! Maintenance crews disposed of several junk cars from fields paralleling highway 89 near the Uintah exit. Spec. 4 Robert Blair and Brent Morgan, trained wrecker operators, used the unit's equipment to dispose of the abandoned wrecks at a salvage yard. Other activities included the disposal of chunks of cement and debris in Riverdale road construction areas as well as supporting Ogden Week by collecting and hauling away tons of trash. The projects were coordinated by Capt. Sterling E. Gardner who noted the battalion is integrating into community affairs enhancing its value during time of peace. "Through participating in these projects, reservists assist the community and obtain, significant training in operation of equipment," he said.
