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.

A subplot to RSL's 2-0 loss to FC Dallas was Omar Holness making his debut in Major League Soccer. He'd dressed before, and made his RSL debut in the club's fourth round U.S. Open Cup victory on June 14. But Saturday was the night the 22-year-old Jamaican, t... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

With major projects down, Utah athletics looks deeper down facilities wish list

Another podium, another speech, another shovel. Spence Eccles, a former All-American skier-turned-Utah superbooster, has been to many of these groundbreakings now. His name rests on the Utes’ football stadium, on the football facility, the student life center, the tennis courts and soon a ski team building — the latest project that officially began construction Wednesday. Along with a line of school administrators, coaches and other donors, he gently scooped out soil at the site where a $2.3 m... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
