Gale did so by leading his little band of volunteers at Save Our Canyons, spending countless hours speaking for the community, challenging shoddy environmental impact statements that favored what he called the “rapacious” ski industry. He unfailingly spoke up to voice h...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

There are plenty of colorful explosions going off in Utah’s high country as the wildflower season peaks this holiday weekend. And you won’t have to wait until dark. “The timing this year seems perfect,” said Jessie Walthers of the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation, which hosts the annual Wasatch Wildflower Festival in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons. “We have been out training and hiking for the festival and it seems like we...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It is truly a magnificent and wonderful place,” Dick said a few years ago, according to Carl Fisher, executive director of Save Our Canyons.

His opponent is an employee of Jordan District. School employees of both districts are ineligible to seek a seat on their own district’s board. Given that, why should we elect a teacher from another district to serve on the Canyons board? Ms. Arnold appears to be a good person with credentials qualifying her as a teacher and administrator. These credentials do not qualify her to serve on a board of educat...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
