Family and friends honor the death of fallen soccer referee Ricardo Portillo, the Great Salt Lake Council discusses gays in the Boy Scouts, and the Salt Lake City Arts Council announces the lineup for the Twilight Concert Series.
Members of the Boy Scouts Great Salt Lake Council met today to discuss how to vote on a proposal to partially lift a ban on gays in the organization. A final vote on the plan will take place at a national meeting later this month.
The Boy Scouts have rejected an application for a scouting troop sponsored by the Utah Pride Center. The gay rights organization recently asked permission to start a troop for 10 middle-school aged children.
