MAGNA, Utah (AP) — A gathering at the Great Salt Lake in hopes of making it into the record books fell way short. Utah park officials invited people to a beach on the lake's south end Saturday in an attempt to set the world record for the largest number of people floating together, unassisted, in a line at one time. According to the Guinness World Records website, Argentina holds the current record with 1,941 people. Only about 300 people showed up at Utah's attempt.

MAPLETON, Utah (AP) — A woman in Utah County is celebrating 15 years rehabilitating wildlife in her backyard.

The majority of the birds are released back into their natural habitat once they've recovered from their injury or illness. The rescue is also home to several education birds who work at schools, memorials and fundraisers. Richards said the rescue has received a lot of community support.
