Ceremony marks 100th anniversary of Utah Capitol cornerstone » At the 100th anniversary of laying the cornerstone to the state Capitol, two Utah governors — plus an actor portraying a third — paid tribute Friday to a small state that decided to construct a grand edifice. "I have often looked at the Capitol and thought what a noble and courageous thing it was for the people of Utah in 1914 to build such a building," former Gov. Mike Leavitt told a crowd gathered on a windy day near the cornerstone.

Gifted Utah therapy dog ‘knew his mission was finished’ » Putter, a gentle dog with dark watery eyes, was at home in the Utah Capitol.
