Recordings reveal Johnson offering up Swallow in plea negotiations • It seems then-Attorney General John Swallow's name was on everyone's lips when Jeremy Johnson sat down with federal prosecutors to try to nail down a plea deal in the St. George businessman's criminal case.

A 'photographic act of justice' for Chinese laborers at Golden Spike • Some 200 Chinese Americans, Chinese citizens and other Asian American friends posed here Saturday on the 145th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad.
