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.

The ninth-place San Jose Earthquakes have won twice in their past 20 regular-season matches, a pitiful four-month stretch capped off by ... <iframe src="" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Kearns • Though in a walking boot and on crutches, Anthony Barthell decided to go ahead and attend the speedskating camp in Moncton, Canada, he had been planning to go to. His skating career was less than a year old, on a promising early track. But Barthell suffered a severe foot sprain a week before he was scheduled to leave his home in Florida to attend the camp, put on by former U.S. speedskating coach Sue Ellis. He had already paid for the trip, he figured, so he could watch from afar, pick ... <iframe src="" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
