Developers Seek Forest Service Land Swap in Bountiful

A pair of developers want to swap 160 acres of privately held land above Bountiful for roughly the same amount of acreage of National Forest Service property—an effort that would require an act of Congress, but will begin in earnest on Tuesday evening at the Bountiful City Council meeting. The city council’s staff report says the men, Ron Crapo and Jaren Davis, hope to build homes on the property, which is located near the Bountiful Lions Rifle, Shotgun and Pistol Range.

Movie Reviews: Rock the Kasbah, Jem & the Holograms, Last Witch Hunter

ALso: Paranormal Activity, Jafar Panahi's Taxi, Experimenter, Steve Jobs
A full slate of new releases includes two unconventional biographies and Halloween season scares. Rock the Kasbah (pictured) attempts to make use of Bill Murray's beloved huckster persona, but tangles it in a preposterous story that takes a real-life tale of an Afghan woman risking her life and makes it all about a white American dude's professional pride.
