Pictured here, the 55-year-old is six months housed and sober.

Top stories this past weekend

Romney to Team 2002: ‘You have been an inspiration’ • Mitt Romney made a short but triumphant return Saturday for the 10th anniversary celebration of the Salt Lake City Olympics. Loud ovations greeted him as he was whisked on stage for two public speeches, the first to the Salt Lake Organizing Committee team he led that put on the highly acclaimed 2002 Winter Games, the second to a crowd that filled almost half of EnergySolutions Arena’s seats for an ice show paying tribute to the Olympics. • http://bit.ly/zw2LAX

After 93 ER visits, homeless Utah man drives reform • Like many of the homeless and uninsured, "Koch" – a pseudonym – frequently surfaced in emergency rooms. His record, though, was unparalleled: over 16 months, between January 2010 and April 2011, he racked up 93 ER visits, hitting every major hospital in the Salt Lake Valley. • http://bit.ly/AC1Ro5

Utah’s nisei veterans honored for faithfulness to unfaithful country • Ted Shimizu, a World War II veteran who had a hand in earning the Congressional Gold Medal and was honored at a massive luncheon Saturday, was thinking, instead, of his fellow Japanese-American soldiers who lost their lives in Europe. • http://bit.ly/zbHynh

Files show Josh Powell’s twisted legacy of hate • Among nearly a thousand pages of documents released Friday detailing the child welfare case involving Josh Powell and his sons, one observation stands out. In a psychological evaluation he prepared for a Feb. 1 custody hearing, psychologist James Manley wrote that Powell had excellent parenting skills but needed to learn to "consistently place his children’s need for an emotionally safe and stable environment ahead of his own [needs]." The boys, as shown in documents released by Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services, repeated their father’s skewed observations, including hatred of Mormons and Jews. • http://bit.ly/A59Q91

No guarantees for children accused of criminal plots • The teens were all accused of thinking up crimes so heinous against their classmates that adults were flabbergasted. Two Salt Lake County boys — 14 and 15 — plotted to kidnap, torture and then kill fellow classmates in the violent style of the "Saw" horror films. Four Uintah High School teens — two 16-year-olds and two 18-year-olds — schemed to blow up their high school and kill their classmates, teachers and parents. A 14-year-old Weber County girl generated a hit list and tried to persuade her classmates to help her assassinate several teachers and students. And most recently, a pair of Roy High School students — ages 18 and 16 — allegedly threatened to detonate a bomb at their school and steal an airplane from the Ogden airport and fly away to freedom. • http://bit.ly/yY56Nj
