LOGAN, Utah (AP) — A northern Utah event straight out of the Old West is attracting more people with its mountain-man appeal. The Herald Journal reports about 50 people gathered to compete in a state-organized event featuring muzzleloader guns last weekend. Many wore traditional mountain-man gear to the area surrounded by snow-capped mountains and populated by hundreds of elk. Shooters raced along a snowy trail to five separate shooting stations where they fired black-powder guns at metal silhouette targets. Prizes were given for the best score out of 10.

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — The Navajo Nation has purchased 1,250 acres of land that includes a gravel pit that the tribe plans to use to obtain sand and gravel for road work and other projects. The Gallup Independent reports that gravel pit's operator that leased its site from the previous land owners will now have a lease with the tribe and that use of the material from the newly purchased site near Indians Wells, Arizona, should save money for the tribe. An announcement of the purchase didn't state the pricetag but said it it was under a $5 million limit under which the Division of Natural Resources director can approve land purchases. A tribal official said material from the gravel pit will be used for highways, dirt roads, bridges, airports and other projects.

CHENEY, Wash. (AP) — Mason Peatling scored 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting, grabbed 11 rebounds and Eastern Washington rallied to beat Southern Utah 81-78 in overtime. Peatling's 3-pointer with 24 seconds left in regulation knotted it at 71 to force the extra session. Jacob Davison's 3 with 53 seconds left brought Eastern Washington within 71-65. Southern Utah led 40-38 at halftime and extended it to 63-52 when Andre Adams made a layup with 9:36 left in regulation. Peatling scored a layup with 7:55 left to start a 7-0 run in just under three minutes. Dwayne Morgan led Southern Utah with 22 points.

PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say a woman angry about not being allowed to board a plane at Sky Harbor International Airport was arrested after allegedly mentioning an explosive device, resulting in hundreds of travelers evacuating part of one concourse. No device was found after a search Friday. Police said 53-year-old Hope L. Webber was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor false emergency reporting and felony making a false terrorism report. A police spokeswoman said Webber's hometown wasn't available and it's not known whether she has an attorney who could comment on the allegations. American Airlines employees had called police to deal with a disruptive female passenger trying to board a flight to Salt Lake City shortly before takeoff. Three flights were delayed.
