Flood Times

If you were born before 1983, you weren't around to see the lines of people on State Street in Salt Lake City, passing sand bags to one another and stacking them in an attempt to control floodwaters from City Creek Canyon (see News, p. 12). Downtown State Street was a river, as were many other streets (1300 South comes to mind). It was a mess. Folks rallied to help stave the waters, or else kayaked for photo ops. Some even threw fishing lines from the "banks" of sidewalks to catch wild trout.

You knew it, I knew it, and now it's official: According to California's Alcohol Research Group, Utah has some of the most expensive booze in the U.S. because there's no competition—all sales and operations are controlled by state government.
