After a 517 mile non-stop solo bike ride ‘Salt to Sinner’ (Salt Lake City to La Vegas) this past weekend, the rationale for doing it is simple, according to Aurora biker Russell Mason. “We all have hard things in life, but we can get through them, especially if family and friends are there to help you get through it.”

And that’s what got him through the grueling 36 hour “craziest, craziest ride ever” – the support of his family and friends.

“I do lots of things to get ready mentally for rides, but the support of my family and this community is what makes all the difference in the world.  It got really, really hard, but thinking of all the prayers and cheering and support is really what helped me get through it,” he said. “I can’t thank the community enough.”  Read the full story in this week’s Salina Sun.

NEWS book tommy burr NEWS other guy cmyk 2           Thomas Burr, son of Jim and Ann Burr, Salina,has co-authored “Mormon Rivals: The Romneys, the Huntsmans, and the Pursuit of Power”, with Matt Canham, both members of the Salt Lake Tribune’s political team covering politics in Washington D.C. and Utah.  Published by The Salt Lake Tribune, the book will be released June 2 online and in select Utah bookstores.

Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman Jr. famously clashed during the 2012 presidential election, but what added such intensity to the rivalry was the deep ties between their families. Their fathers had been friends and, as governors, Mitt and Jon were chummy. In their meticulously reported new book, “Mormon Rivals: The Romneys, the Huntsmans and the Pursuit of Power,” Matt Canham and Thomas Burr expose previously undisclosed details about the relationships between the two families while also delving into the role faith plays in the public personas of their political standard-bearers. Mitt Romney is a very different type of Mormon than Jon Huntsman, and those differences are signals of the maturation of a uniquely American faith.

“One source described the clash between these two families as a fight to be the ‘king of the Mormons.’ There really are not two more prominent LDS families in the political sphere,” said Terry Orme, Tribune editor and publisher. “This book offers the personal details needed to understand their story and how it relates to how voters see Mormon political candidates.”

The book digs into the histories of the two families with tales of how a Huntsman ancestor threw coffee in a Mormon prophet’s face, how Romney’s sister and Huntsman’s mom were once college roommates, how Huntsman praised Romney’s first entrance into the presidential field only to take it back months later — sparking a not-so-friendly phone call from Romney — and how campaign aides on both sides blasted the other internally, and later overtly, as the race heated up. It also examines how the next generation of Huntsmans and Romneys are teed up for their own political aspirations.

The nearly 400-page, softcover book is priced at $16.99. An e-book, available on Kindle, iTunes and Barnes & Noble NOOK, is on sale for $7.99.


Canham and Burr are key members of The Tribune’s political team, with vast experience covering politics in Washington, D.C., and Utah. In coming weeks, they will hold several local book signings:



  •  Salt Lake: June 9, 2015, 7 p.m., Barnes & Noble in Sugar House, 1104 E. 2100 South
  • Murray: June 13, 2015, noon, Barnes & Noble, 5249 S. State St.
