Auctioneer’s gavel is banging in polygamous towns on Utah-Arizona line » Nine years after the Beehive State took control of a polygamous trust, that trust has accelerated the sale of land in twin towns on the Utah-Arizona state line. The sales benefit state taxpayers, who have already financed management of the trust, called the United Effort Plan (UEP). The sales also help Utah toward a goal of distributing all UEP-held lands.

Question before the court: Is deal designed to save or sink The Tribune? » The awkward and messy fight over how Salt Lake City’s two daily newspapers are run gets its first courtroom airing Monday. In what is likely to be a routine status hearing, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups will preside over opening exchanges in a lawsuit that loyal supporters of The Salt Lake Tribune say could determine whether the 143-year-old newspaper survives.

Their alleged crimes, equally unprecedented, range from bribery to accepting rides on private jets and massive houseboats, vacationing in beachfront villas of a convicted criminal and lying to federal investigators about their dealings.
