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 pushed for a little more quickness, while he tried to do what felt most comfortable. “They’ve kind of come to a nice medium,” he said. As for putting pitches over the plate, that been less of an a... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Real Salt Lake: RSL survives tumultuous week, but needs injury list to trim down

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 23:00:07 MST

What doesn’t end you makes you stronger. That was the consensus from Real Salt Lake throughout the most tumultuous week the franchise had seen in several years. It remained that way Saturday evening in suburban New York City, where a severely depleted RSL team went to one of the most difficult places in Major League Soccer to play and earned itself a point. Last Monday, RSL fired coach Jeff Cassar, which only made matters more difficult for a roster dealing with a bevy of injuries, suspensions a...
