LaMoine Jenson, president of the Apostolic United Brethren — Utah’s most public polygamous church — died Tuesday from colon cancer. He was 79. Jenson died at his home in Eagle Mountain. David Watson, a member of the AUB’s priesthood council and a spokesman for the group, said Jenson suffered from cancer for almost five years. The disease forced Jenson to abandon day-to-day operations of Jenson Lumber in Draper, the business he founded.

And that’s about all that makes sense in the streetcar saga, which should make Salt Lake City’s transportation planners nervous. Mayor Ralph Becker, a planner by trade, should be commended for taking a far-reaching view of moving people around in a city growing ever more congested and polluted. He risks losing ground, however, if he doesn’t do a better job of bringing his constituents, an...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
