(Salt Lake City-AP) -- After a year that began with the Winter Olympics and ended in a bitter battle over who controls the behavior on the Main Street Plaza, The Salt Lake Tribune has chosen a prominent player in both these dramas as its Utahn of the Year.

LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley is the newspaper's sixth annual resident of note, according to an article for tomorrow's editions.

The Utahn of the Year is selected by The Tribune's editors and publisher based on a person's influence -- positive or negative -- during the past year.

The newspaper has been naming the most influential state resident since 1997, when it gave the distinction to Utah Jazz player Karl Malone.
