First, today’s weather:

A few showers. High: 73 Low: 52.


Here are the top three floors of Salt Lake City today:

  1. For the first time, chronic wasting disease was detected in Salt Lake County deer. The disease was found by the Utah Department of Wildlife Resources near North Salt Lake and Bountiful by four deer. The disease affects the nervous system of deer, causing brain lesions. (Salt Lake Tribune)
  2. Salt Lake County pools have been able to open despite an ongoing shortage of lifeguards. The Salt Lake County Department of Parks and Recreation has raised wages from $9 an hour to $15.5 an hour in an effort to attract lifeguards β€” it is said to be working. Pools opened in Riverton and Magna Friday. (ABC4.com)
  3. Salt Lake City named a bridge in honor of Robert “Archie” Archuleta. The bridge between the North Temple and 200 South has been renamed in honor of Archuleta’s ongoing struggle for social justice. Along the bridge, photographic collages of Archuleta are displayed. The Archuleta Bridge was dedicated during a ceremony on Friday. (Salt Lake Tribune)
