LDS Church to return tithing after one man’s crime

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will return $150,000 of tithing after a man pleaded guilty to taking close to $25 million from 5,400 people, according to the Deseret News.

Curtis DeYoung of Draper, Utah, pleaded guilty to taking money from individual retirement accounts. He received a sentence of 10 years last fall, the Deseret News reported.

DeYoung also was ordered to repay the money.

DeYoung had paid close to $239,755 in tithing to the LDS Church along with his wife, Michelle DeYoung, who was not charged in the case.

The receiver who was meant to recover the funds sued the church for the return of the tithing, complicating matters, the Deseret News reported.

Plans for Mitt Romney’s summit

Mitt Romney’s fifth annual political retreat later this month won’t feature any bashing of President Donald Trump, according to the Deseret News.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will visit the summit.

Former Conservative Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, former CIA Director Mike Morell and Microsoft Chairman John Thompson are also expected to speak, the Deseret News reported.

Kirk Jowers, a former head of the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics, told the Deseret News that Trump won’t be a subject of discussion.

"I don't think it will be Trump bashing or a bunch of 'I told you so's.' They do a really good job at these summits of always looking toward the future," Jowers said. "They want to get beyond the personal vilification and partisan politics."

Park City increases starting salary for teachers

The Park City School District announced Wednesday that it will offer $50,700 starting salaries for new teachers, according to the Deseret News.

All current teachers will see a $7,000 increase in salary, too, the Deseret News reported.

Tim McConnell, associate superintendent over human resources, told the Deseret News that decision comes as schools nationwide battle to retain and attract teachers to the profession.

“Narrowing the scope to the Wasatch Front, you see the recent increases, and these are the immediate districts with which Park City competes for employees. I’m proud to say that, once again, we have aligned to set the gold standard for compensation for Park City School District’s outstanding teachers," McConnell said.

Changes coming to I-15?

Utahns may soon seen a double-decker I-15 highway, according to the Deseret News.

That is, if lawmakers don’t plan for Utah’s rapid expansion. Those who attended a Utah Transit Authority workshop Thursday learned that the government’s power planning may lead to bigger highways.

Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, R-Sandy, told the Deseret News there needs to be more high-density housing so that major mass transit can be increased.

If not, well, Utahns will be faced with "the question of whether we're going to double-deck I-15. I mean, if we don't deal with that, that's the kind of ideas we have to face or unbelievable gridlock — complete gridlock on our roads,” he said.
