ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Governor Jon Huntsman took time this week on a trip to St. George for the Board of Regents meeting to praise emergency workers who helped the region deal with the January flooding.

Huntsman also took time to meet with local officials about the potential for flooding during the spring runoff.

But after the meetings were through, the governor walked through the St. George Police Department to meet individually with many of the dispatchers and thank them for doing "phenomenal jobs" during the flooding.

He said dispatchers are often overlooked, and he wanted them to know the state was thinking about them.

Cindy Flowers, a shift supervisor for police communications, said it was an honor to be recognized by the governor.
