1831 "How small do those problems look from the satellite view? What is coming up next?

This is what you have to do.This is what he says you have to get the big picture.

You have to get the big picture everyday."

WE KNEW METEOROLOGIST JIM REIF BEST ON AIR -

HAVING SPENT A LIFETIME ON TELEVISION,

BROADCASTING INTO OUR HOMES.

AND KEEPING US SAFE WHEN IT MATTERED THE MOST.

0524 "You need to take protective measures now to protect your life and the life of your loved ones."

1830 "The man who knew more about hurricanes than anyone in this area."

HIS COLLEAGUES CHOKE UP THINKING OF THE WEATHERMAN

WHO HELPED SHAPE THEIR CAREERS.

2158 "For someone to stay in the same place, the same area for 35 years and have that wealth of knowledge,

experience. is almost unheard of."

THEY SAW HIM AT HIS HAPPIEST - JUST LAST WEEK.

1954 "HIs face lit up, his eyes lit up, he and Jane were like two school kids giddy in love. It was really sweet to see."

JIM TOLD US ALL -

TOSS TO MATT-2 SH


NEW AT SIX - CURT CLAWSON'S OPPONENTS IN THE REPUBLICAN RACE FOR CONGRESS ARE JOINING TOGETHER TO PUBLICLY QUESTION HIS TIES TO A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER.

THE MAN LISTED ONE OF CLAWSON'S PROPERTIES AS HIS ADDRESS -- AND A PROPERTY CLAWSON NEVER DISCLOSED HE OWNED.

POLITICAL REPORTER MATT WRIGHT HAS BEEN SIFTING THROUGH PUBLIC RECORDS AND JOINS US WITH WHAT HE'S DISCOVERED.

MATT -- WHAT'S CLAWSON SAYING. Return to index of stories...


CLAWSON RENTAL SCANDAL-TC MON


THE CLAWSON CAMPAIGN TELLS ME THIS WAS ALL RELATED TO A DEAL ON A RENTAL PROPERTY.

AND CLAWSON HAD NO IDEA THE MAN INVOLVED IN THAT DEAL--AND LIVING IN THAT HOME WAS A SEXUAL OFFENDER. UNTIL REPORTERS STARTED ASKING QUESTIONS. Return to index of stories...


CLAWSON RENTAL SCANDAL-BNR-PKG


THIS IS GLEN BORST -- CONVICTED IN 2004 OF ATTEMPTED SEX ABUSE OF A CHILD.

BORST REGISTERED THIS SARATOGA SPRINGS, UTAH HOUSE AS HIS ADDRESS.

IT'S A PROPERTY THAT WAS OWNED BY CANDIDATE CURT CLAWSON THEN TRANSFERRED TO AN L-L-C LISTING CLAWSON AS ITS AGENT.

CLAWSON SOLD THE HOUSE LAST MONTH.

NBC2 HAS ALSO UNCOVERED THIS 2006 DOCUMENT -- SHOWING CLAWSON GRANTED BORST A SPECIAL POWER OF ATTORNEY.

IT GAVE BORST POWER TO SIGN OFF ON ALL DOCUMENTS RELATED TO CLAWSON'S PURCHASE OF THE PROPERTY.

BORST WAS STILL ON PROBATION FOR HIS FELONY CONVICTION AT THE TIME.

AND TODAY -- WE FOUND THE UTAH SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY LISTED BORST AS "NON-COMPLIANT" FOR FAILING TO REGISTER HIS CURRENT ADDRESS.

WE'VE LEARNED BORST CONTACTED LOCAL AUTHORITIES TO UPDATE HIS REGISTRY TODAY -- FOLLOWING MEDIA REPORTS ABOUT THE CLAWSON CONNECTION.

CLAWSON'S CAMPAIGN TELLS NBC 2 HE KNEW BORST AS A CHILD. BUT HAD NO CONTACT WITH HIM FOR DECADES.

THAT CHANGED IN 2006 -- WHEN CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS SAY CLAWSON PURCHASED THE UTAH HOUSE AS AN INVESTMENT RENTAL PROPERTY.

BORST'S EX-WIFE WAS THE REALTOR.

AND THE CAMPAIGN SAYS BORST TOOK POWER OF ATTORNEY TO HANDLE THE DEAL.

ACCORDING TO THE CAMPAIGN. BORST LIVED THERE AS A CARETAKER TENANT. Return to index of stories...


CLAWSON RENTAL SCANDAL-TC MON


CLAWSON DID NOT REPORT THE UTAH PROPERTY ON FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE FORMS FILED IN FEBRUARY.

HIS CAMPAIGN SENT US THIS LETTER FROM AN ACCOUNTANT SAYING IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE DISCLOSED BECAUSE IT'S NOT HELD AS AN INVESTMENT.

BUT YESTERDAY -- THE CAMPAIGN CALLED THE HOUSE AN INVESTMENT PROPERTY.
