A judge ruled that managers must give up control of the Salt Lake Tribune next week even as they continue a legal fight to buy back the newspaper. U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart also ruled that MediaNews Group, the paper's corporate owner, can't sell any Tribune asset worth more than $250,000 without prior notice to the Tribune's former owners. It also must delay plans to build a new printing plant.

A federal appeals court Tuesday refused to stop Denver media magnate Dean Singleton from taking control of Utah's biggest newspaper, the 132,000 circulation Salt Lake Tribune. In a two-paragraph ruling, the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Salt Lake Tribune Publishing Co., controlled by the McCarthey family of Utah, did not show it was entitled to an injunction to stop Singleton. The McCarthey family and management at the newspaper said they had an option to buy it by July 31.

The five couples--all members of the same family--had just finished a Valentine's cruise to Mexico and agreed to drive the motor home in shifts back to Utah to avoid getting road weary. But as some played Scrabble in the back, the driver apparently fell asleep, crashing and killing five people, authorities said. Five others were injured, and three of them remained in critical condition Saturday, hospital officials said.

The bizarre case shed light on an almost Gothic tableau of incest, polygamy and the messy consequences of divulging family secrets.

SEATTLE -- Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing Utah mother Susan Powell, was sentenced Friday to 30 months in prison for secretly photographing two young neighbor children in various stages of undress through the window of their home. The sentencing in Tacoma, Wash., concluded a bizarre family epic of murder, lust and mystery that spanned three generations and two states. But Pierce County District Court Judge Ronald E. Culpepper made it clear he was sentencing Powell on the voyeurism charges before the court -- not for what he may have known about his daughter-in-law's disappearance.
