Streep plays Violet, the tart-tongued matriarch of an Oklahoma family, whose pill-popping has driven away oldest daughter Barbara (Roberts). When Barbara’s father Beverly (Sam Shepard) disappears and is later found dead, the family reunited for a funeral ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Superintendent Martell Menlove, 62, surprised the board last week with the announcement that he is retiring after less than two years on the job. Menlove said he had not anticipated the amount of stress the job would involve when he moved up from deputy superintendent in late 2012. The previous superintendent, Larry Shumway, was in the job three years.
