"And that plays into leadership and improved math skills. And finance plays into every part of their lives."<p>About 580 students attend Highmark Charter School in a suburb just north of Salt Lake City. They earn play money by turning in homework on time and performing chores.

Some locals say the state should own and maintain the roads. They want to make sure they're accessible to ATVs and other off-road vehicles. Environmentalists insist the dirt roads should remain under federal protection. Tue, 03 Jul 2012 20:34:00 +0000 Whittney Evans 19850 at http://whqr.org
