Cedar City • U.S. Sen. Harry Reid is no longer a part of the Southern Utah University Outdoor Engagement Center. SUU President Scott Wyatt decided to make some changes that called for the Nevada Democrat's name to be removed from the building.

The building for that center, however, does not exist — yet.
