The Salt Lake City Life
Chief Burbank has been with the Salt Lake City Police Department since 1991. Appointed to the position of Chief of Police in March 2006 he became the 45th Chief of the Department. During Chief Burbank's first year, Salt Lake City received extensive attention for several high profile incidents.
In the first week of April 2006, over 30,000 people marched from the City and County Building to the State Capitol promoting immigration and labor issues. This constituted the largest march in the City's history. This event transpired without incident. In July of the same year, the City experienced a second high profile kidnapping, following the Elizabeth Smart incident in 2002. Destiny Norton, a 5-year-old little girl was abducted from the yard of her residence and murdered within feet of her front door by a neighbor. The investigation lasted seven days before Craig Roger Gregerson was arrested. Five months later, Mr. Gregerson pleaded guilty to the crime.
John Huntsman Jr.
Jon Huntsman, a seventh-generation resident of Utah, has been the Beehive State's governor for the last five years. His old man, Jon Huntsman Sr., is like him, a very prominent member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Huntsman's political resume runs deep: staffer for Reagan, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Ambassador to Singapore under George H.W. Bush, and was a deputy trade representative under Dubya for two years, which must've been kinda excruciating, even as a high-ranking Republican. He's one of those guys who took the advice to be "fluent in Mandarin" very early
The Utah Jazz are a professional basketball team based in SLC, Utah. They are currently a part of the Northwest Division of the Western Conference in the NBA. The franchise began in 1974 as the New Orleans Jazz, based in New Orleans, Louisiana, but the team moved to Utah in 1979 after just five seasons. The Jazz were one of the most unsuccessful teams in the league in their early years, and it would be 10 years before they made a playoff appearance. They would not miss the playoffs again
until 2004. During the late 1980s, John Stockten and Karl Malone arose as the franchise players for the team, and formed one of the most famed point guard-power forward duos in NBA history. Led by coach Jerry Sloan who took over for Frank Layden in 1988, they became one of the powerhouse teams of the 1990s, culminating in two NBA Finals appearances in 1997 and 1998, where they lost both times to the
Chicago Bulls led by Michael Jordan. Both Stockton and Malone moved on in 2003. After missing the playoffs for three seasons the Jazz have returned to prominence under the on-court leadership of the franchise point guard Deron Williams. As of 2010, the Jazz are the only team in the Big Four Sports leagues located in the state of Utah.
