HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah (AP) — Starting this week, pilots at Utah's Hill Air Force Base will start their recurrent local night flying schedule. Base officials say northern Utah residents will notice increased jet activity during the evening hours as F-35 pilots practice night-time combat skills from Nov. 12-22. Night operations are limited, with pilots flying at night just enough to meet certain proficiency requirements required by the Air Force. Most of the night flying is scheduled to wrap up by 10:30 p.m.

Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a home in the town of New Harmony, which is near St. George.

PHOENIX (AP) — A Utah man who helped get his mother and other family members out of northern Mexico after nine people were killed in an apparent ambush says they'll likely never return. Mike Hafen says his mother and some other family members had lived in one of the hamlets in Mexico's Sonora state for 47 years and left with the bare minimum. More than 100 people left their rural community Saturday in an 18-vehicle caravan after the attack Monday by what authorities say were men from drug cartels.
