Trail gets greener • Kennecott Corp. recently donated eight trees that Eagle Scouts and neighborhood volunteers planted along the Sugar Plum trail system. The project was designed to promote fall tree planting while adding some underused tree species to the trail: Deborah maple, Dawn redwood, ginkgo, Serbian spruce, swamp white oak, English oak, bristlecone pine and ivory silk lilac.


Get ready • Flex lanes to accommodate heavy traffic on 5400 South will be implemented soon. Visit to watch a video simulation of how the system works.


Puppet show • A"Stone Soup" puppet show with Coralie Leue will be presented from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at Magna Library, 2675 S. 8950 West.
