Behind the Headlines

Joe Biden’s visit, FBI shooting, LDS tithing lawsuit

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the one year anniversary of the PACT Act, at George E. Wahlen Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, on Thursday, Aug. 10, 2023.

President Joe Biden visits Utah as part of a Western tour. A Provo man who made threats against the president is shot and killed during an FBI raid. An appeals court reinstates James Huntsman’s tithing lawsuit against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And a cleanup plan for toxic waste created by US Magnesium has a significant flaw: a dwindling supply of Great Salt Lake water.
