    Herbert announces inland port compromise, calls special session for Wednesday

    In a joint news conference with Salt Lake City Council members Monday, Gov. Gary Herbert announced a compromise made up of a long list of changes to the controversial Utah Inland Port Authority law and called a special session for Wednesday. The governor said the special session will also address changes to 10 other bills, including amendments to Utah's sales tax policy to bring the state in-line with the recent federal ruling on online sales tax. The announcement comes days after the governor, legislative leaders and members of the Salt Lake City Council spent more than two hours in a closed-door meeting negotiating changes to SB234, the law to govern creation of Utah inland port — which state leaders say is expected to be Utah's largest economic development project in the state's history.

    8 arrested in protest at Utah operator of detention centers

    CENTERVILLE, Utah (AP) — Eight people were arrested during a protest held outside offices of a Utah-based private prison company that wants to open a fourth detention center for U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement.

MTC now operates detention centers in Calexico, California; Chaparral, New Mexico and Livingston, Texas. Centerville police said about 15 protesters voluntarily left the MTC headquarters but that eight did not

    And the Itty Bitty Salt Lake City answers are ...

    SALT LAKE CITY — There were a number of things we didn't see coming with this year's Itty Bitty Salt Lake City. The weather was seasonably hot when we started, but not miserably hot, as it very quickly turned the first week of the contest. And while we know there is always the possibility that a clue can disappear, we didn't expect two clues to utterly vanish: the box of marigolds on a balcony of Paragon Station and the poster of the red plaid piece of cloth and measuring tape on East Gallivan Avenue. But there were some good things we didn't expect with this year's contest either, like the huge increase in participants from last year and how many of you found the whereabouts of all the clues!

    Leprosy in Salt Lake City – Matt Pierce

    Jerusalem, “The Holy Land”, AD 30 Imagine yourself in 1st century Jerusalem. The daylight is fading as you enter the outer west walls of the city on your way home. You turn to watch the sunset for a few moments, resting against the stone wall as you gaze into the horizon. From the silence arises the faint shuffle of footsteps and jangling sound of a bell. As it grows closer to you, you hear a raspy voice groan, “unclean… unclean!” To your right you see a silhouette approaching in the dying light. Squinting your eyes, you make out some ragged clothes hanging from a crippled, wasted body. “Unclean… unclean!” the dry voice says as he shakes his rusty bell. “Alms? Anything to give to the poor?” Ostracized
