The Best of Salt Lake City!

Salt Lake City, often shortened to Salt Lake or SLC, is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Utah. With an estimated population of 189,314 in 2012, the city lies in the core of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a total population of 1,175,905. Salt Lake City is further situated in a larger urban area known as the Wasatch Front, which has a population of 2,328,299. It is one of only two major urban areas in the Great Basin (the other being Reno, Nevada), and the largest in the Intermountain West.
 
The city was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young, Isaac Morley, George Washington Bradley and several other Mormon followers, who extensively irrigated and cultivated the arid valley. Due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake, the city was originally named "Great Salt Lake City"—the word "great" was dropped from the official name in 1868. Although Salt Lake City is still home to the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), less than half the population of Salt Lake City proper are members of the LDS Church today.

They’re always changing up styles and learning new things from the other guys. They’re being coached really well.” While defensive line is a perennial strength fo... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Scott D. Pierce: CBS really hoping for close Final Four games

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 22:50:34 MST

There’s a team from the West in the Final Four for the first time since 2008. There are TWO teams from the West for only the third time ever. It’s also the first time that teams from conferences that include both Utah (Pac-12, Oregon) and BYU (West Coast, Gonzaga) have made it. Which speaks really well of the caliber of college basketball being played in this part of the country. But it doesn’t matter much to CBS, which will broadcast the games. “A lot of people in the East don’t realize what’s...
