SALT LAKE CITY - In a city where nearly everyone with a title is being wined and dined, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley was barely around long enough for someone to uncork a bottle. O'Malley conducted a 19-hour whirlwind tour yesterday as part of the scouting mission to bring the 2012 Summer Olympics to the Baltimore-Washington region. "You can't overtly campaign," he said. "But your presence says a lot. It's good to get reacquainted with the people who will be making the decision." Along with Washington Mayor Anthony Williams, O'Malley attended a reception held by the U.S. Olympic Committee for the four remaining cities in the running for the games and attended a portion of one competition - 120-meter ski jumping - where he sat directly behind Lech Walesa, the former president of Poland.

Isn't it odd that the entire world knows about Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager who was killed by a white police officer on August 9 yet nobody seems to know anything about Dillon Taylor, the young, unarmed man who was shot to death by a police officer in Salt Lake City just two days later on August 11. Please, we need to stop the incessant "black on black," "black on white," or "white on black" useless, inflammatory rhetoric. Two young unarmed men lost their lives this month.

SALT LAKE CITY // Travel brochures can boast about breathtaking Zion, Bryce and Arches national parks. Tourism promoters can roar about Dinosaur National Monument and hawk the state's high peaks. But Utah's hottest tourism destination is Temple Square and the campus around it, which, as the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the heart of the Mormon church. Covering three city blocks, the church's grounds in downtown Salt Lake City draws 3 million to 5 million visitors per year, the church and the state office of tourism said.

Frank "Ted" Moss, 91, a liberal Utah Democrat who championed conservation and social issues during 18 years in the U.S. Senate, died Wednesday in Salt Lake City. He was elected to his first of three terms in 1958, and served until Republican Orrin G. Hatch defeated him in 1976. Mr. Moss, an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, was an initial sponsor of the Medicaid program. He was known for working to establish national parks and recreation areas, including two parks in Utah. A native of Salt Lake City, he earned a law degree at George Washington University, worked for two years for the Securities and Exchange Commission, and in 1939 returned to Utah.

The U.S. Olympic Committee has extended the deadline for the eight U.S. cities bidding on the 2012 Summer Games, giving them almost nine additional months to submit paperwork. The delay was prompted by recommendations stemming from the Salt Lake City bribery scandal.Under the timetable announced yesterday, Washington-Baltimore and its seven competitors will have until Dec. 15, 2000, to prepare bids. The original deadline was March 31, 2000."We needed to add some time to the schedule for several reasons," said Dick Schultz, the committee's executive director.

NAGANO, Japan -- Olympic T-shirts were difficult to find in Nagano, sweat shirts next to impossible. Snowlet mascot dolls sold out by the end of the first week, and organizers did not replenish the supplies.Street vendors, corporate tents, all those other staples of Atlanta 1996 -- they were kept to a minimum. The commercial scene was decidedly, and deliberately, low-key."It has been more muted," said G. Frank Joklik, president of the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee. "In Atlanta, there were some expressions of doubt afterward whether such an experience should be repeated."

Baltimore is one of 35 U.S. cities that received letters Tuesday from the United States Olympic Committee gauging interest in bidding for the 2024 Summer Games. "I'm excited that Baltimore is being considered and that we've been invited to bid," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Tuesday afternoon. "It's way too early to say what we're going to do. But I think it's a testament to the work that we're doing, shining a spotlight on Baltimore as a sports city. " USOC chief executive officer Scott Blackmun's letter was sent to the mayors of cities in the country's 25 largest markets and 10 others that have expressed interest in hosting the Olympics.

The quaint, two-bedroom apartment Antoine and Anthony Smithson share in Salt Lake City could not be more different than home. The brothers grew up on the corner of The Alameda and 29th Street in Northeast Baltimore, on a block where many of the houses have overgrown lawns and bushes cluttering yards that are no wider or longer than the 10 yards any football team needs to get a first down. In that neighborhood, Antoine — who usually goes by Shaky — and Anthony knew to be wary.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- This was no roller coaster. The half-mile ride required a liability waiver: Bobsledding "is a hazardous act, which could cause personal injury or damage," according to the only capitalized sentence in a forest of fine print. After swearing not to sue, my boyfriend, Eric, and I ascended to the starting point in a minivan, pulled on helmets and wedged between the sled's driver and a stranger. The countdown began as the brakeman rowed the fiberglass sled back and forth, heaved forward and vaulted into the back.

GIVEN the recent history of the Olympics, it is not unreasonable to ask why any city would wish to host the Games. Yet this is precisely what the Baltimore/Washington area wishes to do in 2012.Numerous cities have found that playing host to the Olympics is fraught with danger. The 1976 Games landed Montreal with a $1 billion debt, which took 22 years to pay off. (The final payment was made last month.)The 1984 games in Los Angeles may have turned a profit, but not before they became embroiled in Cold War politics and were compromised by a powerful Soviet-led boycott.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- With President Bush visiting Salt Lake City to address the American Legion today, the Utah capital held one of the anti-war protests that presidential visits often attract. But leading yesterday's protest, in the reddest state in the nation, was the mayor of the state's largest city. In Salt Lake City, the ruckus surrounding Democratic Mayor Rocky Anderson is seen by many as just "Rocky being Rocky," said Randy Simmons, a political science professor at Utah State University, who is married to one of Anderson's cousins.
