Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, whose outrageous car designs and anti-hero cartoon character "Rat Fink" helped define the California hotrod culture of the 1950s and 1960s, died Wednesday in his studio in Manti, Utah. More than 25 years ago Roth re-examined his life after a divorce and the failure of his magazine and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, leading him to put LDS symbols and references in his recent car designs. He was 69.

Beloved LDS Principal Succumbs to Cancer
Students, faculty, friends and family built a memorial of flowers and teddy bears at the foot of the Logan High School grizzly statue in honor the life of Allison Dunn, beloved principal, teacher, wife, mother and friend. Dunn was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996, but by February, 2000 the cancer had spread to her bones, liver and lungs. After a week of missing school, she declared she wanted to go back to work. Her husband, Steve Dunn, drove her to school and carried her up the stairs for her last day of work.
