LDS real estate riches, renter data, and Jazz-Mavs playoff matchup

(Tribune and wire photos) A collection of property across the United States owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, clockwise from top left: An apartment building adjacent to the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple; the Church Office Building in Salt Lake City; an office complex in Richardson, Texas; a meetinghouse in Laie, Hawaii; undeveloped land in Riverton; and farmland near St. Cloud, Fla.

Housing caseworkers decry what they say is a “blacklist” of prospective renters maintained by a powerful Utah law firm. A newly released database shows that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the fifth largest private landholder in the United States. And the Utah Jazz square off against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
