The redevelopment of the Main Street Mall has been underway for about half a decade. Now the developer of the project says it's rounding third base and is just about complete. Rick Brough has more.

The Egyptain Theatre Company on Tuesday announced a fundraising campaign called "SOB - Save Our Banksy" which aims not only to preserve a piece of street art by a world-reowned graffiti artist, but also to help the Egyptian's youth theater. Rick Brough has more.

The Egyptian Theatre's "Save Our Banksy" campaign is seeking to create a space where their Banksy painting, left on a stage door over four years ago, can be preserved for the public. At the same time, they're hoping that Banksy can help find a new home for the Youth Theatre. Rick Brough has more.

Upcoming shows at the Egyptain Theatre, like the Follies, may just be "3.2 beer" events, and won't include wine - unless Egyptian Manager Randy Barton successfully pleads his case at a Tuesday morning meeting of the Utah Liquor Commission.

Barton, who is also a KPCW host, says the Commission and the State Division of Alcohol Beverage Control have shifted direction and won't allow the Theater a single-event wine or spirits permit. Rick Brough has more.
