Family and friends honor the death of fallen soccer referee Ricardo Portillo, the Great Salt Lake Council discusses gays in the Boy Scouts, and the Salt Lake City Arts Council announces the lineup for the Twilight Concert Series.
Members of the Boy Scouts Great Salt Lake Council met today to discuss how to vote on a proposal to partially lift a ban on gays in the organization. A final vote on the plan will take place at a national meeting later this month.
With performers like Flaming Lips, Belle and Sebastian and Grizzly Bear coming to the Twilight Concert series, the Salt Lake City Arts Council expects another banner year for the series. Casey Jarman is the series director. He says schedule challenges make it rare for him to be able to land the good bands on the first try.
