Making a left turn from Center Street onto University Avenue is nearly impossible unless you are the first car in line. And if you want to go straight but happen to be behind a car turning left, just enjoy the wait you have ahead of you. This intersection would be less congested and less hazardous if a left turn lane and arrow were added.

Even in Washington, where officeholders routinely challenge each other’s honor and motives, math is hard to debate. The future of the Social Security system is essentially a math problem; math is nonpartisan and doesn’t defer to either the Republican or Democratic parties. The Social Security Trustees recently issued their annual report and it showed that the Social Security funds will be depleted in 2034 unless changes are mad...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

A person familiar with the talks over the past few weeks told The Associated Press that a conference call vote could come Tuesday evening “depending on the type of proposal” the league presents to the players association. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because drug policy negotiations between the union and league are confidential. ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583933592014-09-09T22:38:50.909-06:00" id="#license-2014-09-09T22:38:50.909-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Gary Herbert that things have changed as a result of recent Utah Transit Authority audits. Case in point, the 2010 legislative audit detailing the conflict of interest of board member Terry Diehl and his subsequent multimillion dollar profit as a result of a land deal on the Draper TRAX station. This all took place while Diehl was the point person for UTA, while denying having any financial interest in the project until just before the vote.

At the time, I had some doubts. However, the likelihood seems much greater in light of the recent court rulings.
