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.

Sandy • There was a game to be bossed on Saturday night. And without Real Salt Lake’s captain Kyle Beckerman, Mike Petke zeroed in on who he wanted to best replicate the bite that RSL’s leader brings to the midfield. Sunday Stephen was his target, a player brought in last offseason to play alongside Beckerman in the two-man defensive midfield. Petke said he and the 28-year-old Nigerian midfielder nicknamed “Sunny” talked a lot last week about the role he needed to play in order for RSL to snag t...
