Top News:

Poll: Utahns favor stricter air quality rules for industry • By a 3-to-1 margin, Utahns favor stricter air pollution standards on industry, according to a new survey commissioned by The Salt Lake Tribune. Majorities also say they are more concerned about the state's air quality — notorious for pollution-trapping inversions in winter — than they were five years ago, and they are willing to change their driving habits to help clear the air.

Blankets to armored vehicles: The military gives it, Utah police take it • The Defense Department has provided the weaponry and equipment to Utah's police forces through what it calls the 1033 Program, including grenade launchers, armored mine-resistant vehicles and hundreds of M-16 and M-14 rifles. As of an April 2013 audit, Utah police possessed $2.8 million of weapons and other military gear received through the program.

11 months, 11 nations, 1 life-changing mission for Utahn • After earning her associate degree in American Sign Language at Salt Lake Community College in 2012, Sarah Imperiale wanted to get out of the country, but couldn't find any program that appealed to her. Then she discovered The World Race, an interdenominational effort that sends young Christians to 11 countries in 11 months to serve the poor as Jesus commanded.
