SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The LDS church isn't putting too fine a point on where its new Utah temple will be, but that isn't stopping other people from speculating.

Nowhere is that louder than in Draper, where city officials and a developer say they're all but certain that the new temple announced Saturday at the General Conference is headed.

Officials from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aren't yet revealing the site for the Salt Lake Valley's third L-D-S temple, and 12th in Utah.

However, folks in Draper say the church revealed plans to build a temple when they bought the land almost two years ago.

Draper employees say temple talk has been common at City Hall for more than a year, calling it -- QUOTE -- "everybody's fantasy."
