As the chill of an autumn breeze moved though Cyprus’ home field and the clock ticked down to zero, the 1,000th time West played a football game in 124 years was a victory. West defeated Cyprus on Friday night 42-14, the first win of the Panthers’ season coming on the shoulders of running back Landon Tapusoa and the fateful bounces of a host of Cyprus fumbles.

A National Women’s History Museum, particularly on the National Mall, would forever mark their accomplishments. It’s unfortunate, then, that Sen. Mike Lee is intent on blocking a vote on this long overdue recognition. The House of Representatives has already passed legislation (383-33) that would establish a commission to follow the recognized process for considering a national museum. A vote in the Senate would mean this bipartisan l...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

But when it comes to the “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” 14 hours seems barely enough. The series begins with the birth of Theodore Roosevelt in 1858, continues through the life of Franklin Roosevelt, and ends with the death of Eleanor Roosevelt in 1962. It’s an amazing history of an amazing family.
