It's tough to follow the news when you're finally off the clock and have time for yourself and your family. Rewind will help you catch up with all the happenings in Utah over the weekend.

Houses vs. apartments — they're both on the rise in Utah • Record numbers of urban apartments are being built across Salt Lake County, just as home construction gears up to feed demand for single-family suburban houses. Can both gambles succeed?

Gender gap likely to grow on Utah's Capitol Hill • Rep. Becky Lockhart is one of five women leaving the Utah Legislature — nearly a third of the female members. And the odds may be stacked against recouping that loss in the November election, let alone making significant gains in the number of women lawmakers.

Utah governor signs 'hemp supplement' bill • Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has signed "Charlee's Law," giving Utahns with epilepsy trial access to a non-intoxicating, seizure-stopping cannabis oil.

Federal courthouse contractor in trouble with ­— the feds • The company constructing the new federal courthouse in Salt Lake City has agreed to pay more than $1 million to resolve allegations it made false claims about having a minority-owned business as a partner on a number of projects.

Real Salt Lake: From humble start, RSL becomes MLS power • It started with golden shovels and a little white lie. But something had to be done. Perhaps more than any sport, soccer is a game that takes notice of luck. A team can be overmatched and outplayed for 90-plus minutes, yet still sneak away with a victory. So before there was a stadium packed with frenzied fans and full luxury suites, there was a vacant field. And a lot of crossed fingers.
