Eugene H. Bramhall, BYU's longtime top attorney, has received lifetime membership in the 6,000-member National Association of College and University Attorneys.

Bramhall is one of only 25 recipients of the honor in the 40-year history of the organization.

"He has been a generous, thoughtful and always gracious contributor to NACUA, a positive role model for newcomers to the profession and the very epitome of the collegiality that the organization so cherishes," said S. Andrew Schaffer, vice president and general counsel of New York University.

"This is the best law job in the country," said Bramhall, who plans to retire in October. "Surely the decision to come here was the best decision of my life. BYU is the best client anyone could have."

Neighbors who live near the Blackhawk Business Park got their way when city officials required the construction of an 8-foot fence to separate a proposed retail business and their homes.

The City Council on Wednesday also limited retail hours from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and said that lights should be directed away from the homes, said Cheryl Hobbs, associate planner. The business park, at about 800 South and 1040 West, is in a special highway service zone, which allows homes next to businesses. The council approved the retail business with a conditional use permit.
