Gov. Gary Herbert used a couple of Paralympic-caliber archers Tuesday to emphasize that his job-creation goals were right on target.
The governor recounted Tuesday how there were "a lot of naysayers" when he issued a challenge to the private sector in January 2012 to create 100,000 jobs in 1,000 days.
The private sector's response was revealed when Michael Lukow and Steve Bosson, Iraq War veterans who are part of USA Archery's elite Para team, popped balloons with arrows at about 30 paces. A board hidden by the balloons displayed the number: 112,200 new jobs.
