A plan to turn the old Granite High School into a movie studio has fallen through and the property could now be sold to a private buyer.
Originally, the city of South Salt Lake hoped to buy the 27-acre Granite High School property and renovate its historic buildings. But, two years ago, voters rejected a $25 million bond issue needed to do that by just nine votes.
The Granite school district police department has pressed charges against an 11-year-old Kearns boy who brought a gun to school yesterday. The charges include one count of possession of a firearm and three counts of aggravated assault. Granite school district spokesman Ben Horsley says the gun was found in the boys backpack after two of his fellow students reported it to their teacher. The boy insists that he brought the gun to school to protect himself from a Connecticut style school shooting. Horsley says while it’s a legitimate concern it’s never an appropriate action.
