The Deseret News' promise to pay for news tips was good news to Steven Ivie from Kearns and Richard and Sharon Mears of Sandy.
Ivie received a $15 check for a story idea that turned into a front page piece with a color photo and map about the large migration of painted lady butterflies. The Mears pocketed $10 for a tip about a bank error that turned them into millionaires for one weekend. The article about their short-lived windfall appeared in the Utah People column.So, if you need a little cash, we need your news tips, especially on fast-breaking stories. We pay up to $25 for good tips. If you see something newsworthy, calls us at 237-2100.
