Bike lanes are this way and that. Workers are paving and jack hammering — and, simply put, between 600 East and 300 West, things are a mess. But don’t worry, say Salt Lake City officials, when the dust clears — about mid-October — the city will have its first permanent protected bike lanes on both sides of what some still call Broadway.

In the old days, executives had only their hunches and experience to figure out where customers are and where they’re headed. Now we live in the age of big data. Customers are researched and tracked in ways never thought imaginable. So it is a good sign that Utah’s state-run liquor monopoly has reached out to its customers with a survey, and the results of that outreach show the state’s 46 liquor outlets could m...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Some business owners report profits up 20 to 30 percent this summer compared with last year’s, when the shore was still in the early stages of recovering from the devastating October 2012 storm. “This summer was great,” said Matt Riccelli, who manages Gee...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583520112014-08-29T12:18:02.078-06:00" id="#license-2014-08-29T12:18:02.078-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
