SALT LAKE CITY — Harlem Globetrotter Anthony "Buckets" Blakes read to a group of kids at the Salt Lake Main Library Friday, and then dazzled them with brief display of the Globetrotters' signature ball-handling wizardry.


Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker has proclaimed Feb. 8 as Harlem Globetrotters Day in the city. The Globetrotters will play a game at EnergySolutions Arena on Monday at 7 p.m.
