SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Gov. Gary Herbert will open his first annual Outdoor Recration Summit on Thursday by signing a long awaited swap of state and federal lands in Grant, San Juan and Uintah Counties.
The deal gives the federal government about 25,000 acres of conversation and recreation lands in exchange for about 35,000 acres of energy-rich land for the state.
Congress authorized the deal in 2009 but it has taken years of negotiations to be finalized.
The Park City school district just two years after a tax increase face an upcoming deficiency, district officials say they'll again make cuts and have said another tax increase may be on the horizon. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
John and Lynn spend the first half of the show with Richard Giraud, landslide specialist for Utah Geological Survey. Common types of Utah landslides are debris flows, slides and rock falls. In the second half, Richard Primack, author of "Walden Warming: Climate Change Comes to Thoreau's Woods". Richard uses notes on the natural history of Concord Massachusetts from Henry David Thoreau, to track the effects of a warming climate.
