 Two LDS SLOC Execs Could Face Charges
After federal prosecutors filed a plea agreement with former U.S. Olympic Committee official Alfredo LaMont, speculation has centered on whether or not LDS Church members Tom Welch and Dave Johnson will be prosecuted for their role in the Salt Lake Olympic bid scandal as a result. Documents on file with the U.S. Department of Justice say that Salt Lake bid committee "Officers 1 and 2" conspired with LaMont.

 Ainge's Clutch Shot Remembered For March Madness
With College basketball's fabled "March Madness" upon us, the Times remembers several players who came through in clutch situations, winning games for their teams. Included among the memories is former basketball coach Danny Ainge's game-winning basket to win a March Madness game against Notre Dame in 1981.

 Stanford's LDS Basketball Star Is Larger Than Life
Mark Madsen is larger than life. The 6-foot-9, 240 lb. power forward with a deep rooted background in the Mormon faith, wants others to see him as someone who has made "plenty of mistakes." The problem for Madsen is one of a media-created myth that he is not like anyone else. Stanford teammate Casey Jacobesen sums it up by saying, "Let's be honest, the guy is almost too good to be true."

 LDS Gymnast Surprises Coach By Getting Married
Married life is agreeing with the bubbly Christensen-Cowley, who is competing in the Pac-10 championships. Christensen married her high school boyfriend Jeremy Cowley on December 21, just 10 days before her 21st birthday and less than three weeks before the start of the season. "It was kind of funny to see the different reactions," she said. "A lot of people were a little bit hesitant."

 LDS Church Volunteers Constructing Springville 'Field Of Dreams
If you closely at the middle of a prime piece of farmland at about 500 South and 900 West in Springville, Utah you will see volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints working full time on a church version of the popular movie "Field of Dreams." With a due date of late summer, every effort is being made to convert this prime piece of farmland in the southwest part of town into a four-diamond complex, complete with a central structure for score keeping, announcer, restroom and snack-bar.
