Hiker Joe Bullough said he found the pole lying on the ground when he hiked to the top of the peak east of Salt Lake City Thursday morning. He had seen the pole, adorned with an American flag and autographed mission T-shirt, last weekend.

Teachers formed opinions. Politicians had their say. But now that school’s out and end-of-year exams are over, what did kids think of the state’s new SAGE tests? Some students liked the exams better than the old Criterion Referenced Tests (CRTs) — but many of those with whom The Salt Lake Tribune spoke panned the assessments. “It didn’t really reflect how smart people are because it was just so confusing,” said Abby Morgan, who will be a junior at Olympus High this fall. “Eve...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
