It wasn't the news Dian Bloom wanted to hear. The scan she had hoped would tell her she was cancer free came back with what her doctors called "an area of concern." But the spunky 18-year-old Farmington High School senior isn't letting the news get her down. Not right now, at least. This week, she's enjoying a week in Bora Bora with her grandmother and her closest friends. She'll think about her cancer next week, when she gets home. Bloom was diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer, or angiosarcoma, last May. In the time since then, she's gone through surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy.

The Farmington City Council approved a new set of goals Monday night. That's a good thing. A city should have a plan for where it wants to go in the coming years. Listed among those goals is a desire to maintain good communication with residents. That is also good, but it doesn't necessarily fit with the way council members developed their goals. The city's goals document took shape in a series of workshop meetings that, while technically public, were held outside of council chambers and away from the cameras that record and broadcast regular council meetings.
