East High School (Salt Lake City)
East High School is a public high school in the Salt Lake City School District in Salt Lake City, United States. It serves grades nine through twelve, accepts and cares for mentally and physically disabled kids. East High School was founded in 1913 and has an enrolled student body of around 1,900, it is located at 840 South 1300 East in the East Bench neighborhood. The original building was completed in 1913, the current structure was built in 1997. Most of the Disney Channel film High School Musical was filmed at East High School; the opening scenes of its first sequel High School Musical 2 were filmed at East High. Additional filming took place in St. George; the filming of the second sequel High School Musical 3: Senior Year began at East High on May 3, 2008. In 2017 the school re-purposed two locker rooms below the gymnasium and washing machines in order to accommodate homeless students; the non-profit organization Chapman-Richards Cares donated a washing machine to the school. About 100 students at the time were homeless.
In July 2017, a flood caused about $3 million in damages to the school. Much of the Disney Channel film High School Musical and parts of its two sequels, High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3: Senior Year, were filmed at East High; as a result, the school has become a destination for some tourists. In the summer of 2007, the school received 40 to 50 visitors per day who wanted to visit the location of the film. In November 2007, the school performed its own production of High School Musical. Demand for tickets was so strong. In 2007, three members of the football team were arrested and charged with various offences including forcible sodomy, attempted forcible sodomy and sexual abuse. Incidents similar to this occurred three times during the same season; the players were expelled from school. In March 2008, one of the defendants was found guilty of two first degree felonies: forcible sexual abuse and attempted forcible sodomy, in addition to a misdemeanor charge of lewdness, he was ordered into custody, where he was sentenced to mandatory therapy, was directed to write apology letters to his victims.
In December 2008, five students were suspended and "referred to police" after assaulting a classmate. In 2012, a Woods Cross High School soccer player was blatantly fouled by an East High School player with an intentional knee to the head; the assault was filmed and the video uploaded to Internet video sharing site YouTube. The offending soccer player apologized. Roseanne Barr dropped out before graduating at 17 years old.

Freemasonry or Masonry consists of fraternal organisations that trace their origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of stonemasons and their interaction with authorities and clients. The degrees of Freemasonry retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds, those of Apprentice, Journeyman or fellow, Master Mason; the candidate of these three degrees is progressively taught the meanings of the symbols of Freemasonry, entrusted with grips and words to signify to other members that he has been so initiated. The initiations are part allegorical morality part lecture; the three degrees are offered by Craft Freemasonry. Members of these organisations are known as Masons. There are additional degrees, which vary with locality and jurisdiction, are administered by their own bodies; the basic, local organisational unit of Freemasonry is the Lodge. The Lodges are supervised and governed at the regional level by a Grand Lodge or Grand Orient.
There is no worldwide Grand Lodge that supervises all of Freemasonry. Modern Freemasonry broadly consists of two main recognition groups. Regular Freemasonry insists that a volume of scripture is open in a working lodge, that every member profess belief in a Supreme Being, that no women are admitted, that the discussion of religion and politics is banned. Continental Freemasonry is now the general term for the jurisdictions which have removed some, or all, of these restrictions; the Masonic lodge is the basic organisational unit of Freemasonry. The Lodge meets to conduct the usual formal business of any small organisation. In addition to business, the meeting may perform a ceremony to confer a Masonic degree or receive a lecture, on some aspect of Masonic history or ritual. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Lodge might adjourn for a formal dinner, or festive board, sometimes involving toasting and song; the bulk of Masonic ritual consists of degree ceremonies. Candidates for Freemasonry are progressively initiated into Freemasonry, first in the degree of Entered Apprentice.
Some time in a separate ceremony, they will be passed to the degree of Fellowcraft, they will be raised to the degree of Master Mason. In all of these ceremonies, the candidate is entrusted with passwords and grips peculiar to his new rank. Another ceremony is officers of the Lodge. In some jurisdictions Installed Master is valued as a separate rank, with its own secrets to distinguish its members. In other jurisdictions, the grade is not recognised, no inner ceremony conveys new secrets during the installation of a new Master of the Lodge. Most Lodges have some sort of social calendar, allowing Masons and their partners to meet in a less ritualised environment. Coupled with these events is the obligation placed on every Mason to contribute to charity; this occurs at both Grand Lodge level. Masonic charities contribute to many fields, such as disaster relief; these private local Lodges form the backbone of Freemasonry, a Freemason will have been initiated into one of these. There exist specialist Lodges where Masons meet to celebrate events, such as sport or Masonic research.
The rank of Master Mason entitles a Freemason to explore Masonry further through other degrees, administered separately from the Craft, or "Blue Lodge" degrees described here, but having a similar format to their meetings. There is little consistency in Freemasonry; because each Masonic jurisdiction is independent, each sets its own procedures. The wording of the ritual, the number of officers present, the layout of the meeting room, etc. varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The officers of the Lodge are appointed annually; every Masonic Lodge has two Wardens, a secretary and a treasurer. There is a Tyler, or outer guard, always present outside the door of a working Lodge. Other offices vary between jurisdictions; each Masonic Lodge exists and operates according to a set of ancient principles known as the Landmarks of Freemasonry. These principles have thus far eluded any universally accepted definition. Candidates for Freemasonry will have met most active members of the Lodge they are joining before they are initiated.
The process varies between jurisdictions, but the candidate will have been introduced by a friend at a Lodge social function, or at some form of open evening in the Lodge. In modern times, interested people track down a local Lodge through the Internet; the onus is on candidates to ask to join. Once the initial inquiry is made, an interview follows to determine the candidate's suitability. If the candidate decides to proceed from here, the Lodge ballots on the application before he can be accepted; the absolute minimum requirement of any body of Freemasons is that the candidate must be free, considered to be of good character. There is an age requirement, varying between Grand Lodges, capable of being overridden by a dispensation from the Grand Lodge; the underlying assumption is that the candidate should

Downtown Salt Lake City
Downtown is the oldest district in Salt Lake City, Utah. The grid from which the entire city is laid out originates at Temple Square, the location of the Salt Lake Temple. Downtown Salt Lake City is defined as the area between North Temple and 400 South Streets north to south and about 500 East and 600 West Streets east to west. Downtown encompasses the areas of Temple Square, The Gateway, Main Street, the central business district, South Temple, others. Along with local and state government and non profits, two primary business organizations - the Salt Lake Chamber and the Downtown Alliance promote Salt Lake CIty's downtown as the heart of the state, as its most lively and diverse locale. Downtown's layout was first planned in 1833. Joseph Smith designed the Plat of Zion, a plan for cities of 20,000 people each that followed city blocks with self-sufficient family farms surrounding several temples in the center. Smith meant for this plan to be applied to the City of Zion in the Midwestern United States, but following persecution and Smith's assassination, the plans were carried westward by the Mormon pioneers.
Downtown Salt Lake began to form in 1847 when Brigham Young chose the site of the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, forming the core of the settlement. Temple Square became the center of the grid system, bounded by South Temple, West Temple, North Temple, East Temple Streets. Streets are named according to their distance and direction from the southeast corner of Temple Square. East Temple was popularly known as Main Street, was renamed sometime in the late 19th century, it has been the commercial center of the city. The early Mormon pioneers, who settled in Salt Lake City, adopted a form of consecration whereby crops grown and products produced were divided among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in local congregations; this enabled new settlers to have the food and products they needed after they made the rigorous journey to Salt Lake City. This exchange was organized into what would become Zions Cooperative Mercantile Institution.
The first businesses to locate on Main Street were those founded by James A. Livingston and Charles A. Kincade, in 1850, in the area south of the Council House, being built on the corner of Main and South Temple Streets; the Mormon pioneers lived a secluded existence in the remote Salt Lake Valley for the first 20 years of settlement. However, in 1865 U. S. troops stationed in Park City announced it to the world. With this announcement, an new element began streaming into Salt Lake City. Prospectors changed the downtown district. In accommodation of the new crowd, many of the Main Street businesses were saloons, earning the street the nickname "Whiskey Street". For many years, there existed a cultural divide in Salt Lake City. Mormons would shop and congregate around the Salt Lake Temple, the Gardens at Temple Square and ZCMI on the north-end of Main Street, those who were not members of the church, who were prospectors in the early days, would stay south of the predominantly Mormon area; the business district extended along the west side of Main between South Temple and 100 South.
By the 1880s, the area had expanded to both sides of the street and down to 200 South, increased about a block a decade, until 1900, when it reached 400 South. Today, the southern limit of downtown Salt Lake City is considered 900 South. From 1870 to the 1930s, Commercial Street was Salt Lake's notorious red light district. Prostitution was begrudgingly tolerated as long as it was confined to Commercial Street, thus kept out of the public eye. In the late 1880s, the trade was unofficially licensed. Police would ""fine" them $50 each. After a physical examination, they would be released and allowed to ply their trade without any further fear of molestation. Many notable Salt Lakers owned buildings on Commercial Street, including the Brigham Young Trust Company, whose board included many prominent members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Brigham Young, Jr. a church Apostle and vice president of the bank, temporarily resigned over the matter, until the building was sold. After World War II, many people could afford to move out of downtown into the suburbs.
By 1971, 60% of the homes in downtown Salt Lake City were in major disrepair. Starting in the 1960s, revitalization efforts began, spearheaded by the LDS Church, who had always considered downtown their home. During the'70s, they built the ZCMI Center Mall on a full city block of land that had housed the ZCMI department store, preserving the historic storefront; the Church leased land to a developer to build Crossroads Mall. The land for the mall housed the Amussen Jewelry building, at the time Salt Lake City's oldest building. A study commissioned by the city found it to be Salt Lake City's most architecturally significant building, efforts to preserve it were underway. However, before the building could be saved, it was torn down to make way for the mall. Built during this era was the LDS Church Office Building, completed in 1973, which at that time was Salt Lake's tallest building at 28 floors. However, this was surpassed in 1999 by the American Stores Tower. Although it has fewer floors, it is taller than the Church Office Building by two feet, although the Church Office Building appears taller because it is l
Kearns-Saint Ann Catholic School
Kearns-Saint Ann School is a Catholic school located in South Salt Lake, built in 1899. It is home to students in grades Preschool through 8th grade. Kearns-Saint Ann School began as an orphanage in the late 1800s, continues its legacy of the caring for and educating of children, begun in 1891 by the Sisters of the Holy Cross. In the late 1800s, Thomas Kearns was one of most influential figures, he had made his fortune with his partners, John Judge and David Keith through their business, the Silver King Mine in Park City, Utah. He was the publisher of the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper, continued his leadership role in early Utah when he became a United States Senator. Due to the high number of mining accidents and disasters in Utah mines, many families were left without a breadwinner in the days when women could not find high-paying jobs. There was a high number of orphaned children as a result of the mining disasters; the Sisters of the Holy Cross saw a need for an orphanage and opened one in 1891.
Bishop Lawrence Scanlan, of the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City, gave the sisters a small, two-story adobe building for the purpose of caring for the orphans. In a short time, the orphan population grew to the point that the building was not big enough to house them. Bishop Scanlan tried to acquire land on which to build an orphanage, but ran into financial problems. In 1898, Jennie Judge Kearns, wife of Senator Thomas Kearns, donated $60,000 to the diocese for the purpose of building an orphanage, her gift covered the entire cost of purchasing the construction of the building. The furnishings were provided by a list of whom was printed in the Deseret News; the acreage on which the orphanage was built consisted of rich farmland where the sisters would grow food for feeding the orphans. Today that land is a baseball field used by children's sports teams for practice and games; the building was designed and built by noted architect, Carl M Neuhausen, designer of the Cathedral of the Madeleine and the Kearns Mansion, both located in Salt Lake City, UT.
He told Bishop Scanlan. The cornerstone was laid on August 27, 1899; the next day the deed was transferred to the Diocese of Salt Lake for the sum of $10.00. Kearns-St. Ann Orphanage was dedicated on October 7, 1900, became home to 92 children and the Sisters of the Holy Cross who cared for them. Funding for the orphanage was difficult and relied on donations from benefactors in the Salt Lake area. Another wealthy miner, Patrick Phelan, left a large endowment to the orphanage when he died in 1901. By 1902 the number of orphans had climbed to 127. Any child, in need of a home was accepted into the orphanage regardless of their religion; the sisters worked with the residents of Salt Lake City to provide a loving home for the children. Many times, the local residents would provide tickets to the circus or Lagoon_. Christmas showed the generosity of the people of Salt Lake, as no child went without a gift. Kearns' St. Ann's Orphanage continued operating under the direction of the Sisters of the Holy Cross until 1954, when the Utah State Foster Care System was created, the need for orphanages no longer existed.
However, the legacy of the founders continued when St. Ann's Orphanage was converted into a parochial school beginning in 1955; when St. Ann's School opened in fall of 1955, the leadership transferred from the Sisters of the Holy Cross to the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word. St. Ann’s opened with an enrollment of 240 students in grades kindergarten through 4th grade. A grade was added each year; as the number of sisters declined in America, they were replaced with lay-teachers. The sisters continued their presence in the school until the early twenty-first century. In the early 1990s, St. Ann's School had reached a crisis point over the aging building. A decision had to be made regarding whether to demolish and rebuild the nearly one-hundred year old crumbling building, or renovate it and bring it into the twenty-first century while preserving its historic integrity. Monsignor John J. Sullivan, pastor of St. Ann’s Parish met with the parish council to solve this problem; the decision was made to preserve its historic presence in Salt Lake City.
Many changes had to be made to bring the building up to the code of the 1990s without taking away from the architectural integrity created by Carl M. Neuhausen, nearly one hundred years prior. Architect James Glascock was hired to design the renovation; the implementation of his design was directed by Cameron Construction. In 1980 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and is listed on the Utah Division of State History as a historic site. In honor of the founders and benefactors of Kearns' St. Ann's Orphanage, the school was renamed Kearns-Saint Ann School in 1991. Today the school ministers to students in grades Preschool through 8th and serves a diverse student population from varied socio-economic backgrounds. Kearns-Saint Ann School has been called one of the most diverse schools in the state of Utah, with about one-fourth of its students being refugees. Kearns-Saint Ann School has been nurturing young minds since 1899. Official website
Groundbreaking known as cutting, sod-cutting, turning the first sod or a sod-turning ceremony, is a traditional ceremony in many cultures that celebrates the first day of construction for a building or other project. Such ceremonies are attended by dignitaries such as politicians and businessmen; the actual shovel used during the groundbreaking is a special ceremonial shovel, sometimes colored gold, meant to be saved for subsequent display and may be engraved. The term groundbreaking, when used as an adjective, may mean being or making something that has never been done, seen, or made before.

Glendale, Salt Lake City
Glendale is a neighborhood on the West side of Salt Lake City, Utah. Glendale is South of the Rose Park, Fair Park, Poplar Grove neighborhoods; the neighborhood was developed as Glendale Gardens, where Glendale Middle School derives its name. Mountain View Elementary was named Glendale Elementary. Glendale, neighboring Poplar Grove, Fair Park, & Rose Park enjoy a vibrant multi ethnic environment. Residents of Glendale enjoy the community's diversity, pride in community, authenticity of fellow residents; those who live in Glendale cite it as affordable, conveniently close to local schools, the airport, downtown Salt Lake City. The Glendale neighborhood is the area west of Interstate 15 to the western Salt Lake City boundary. Glendale's southern edge borders the City of South Salt Lake at SR-201 and extends North to 950 S. North of Glendale is Poplar Grove. Both neighborhoods make up most of zip code 84104 and are within Salt Lake City Council District 2; some of the first homesteaders to settle in what is now the Glendale neighborhood were the George Q.
Cannon family. The George Q. and Caroline Cannon House is a Victorian-style brick house at 1354 South and 1000 West and was built in 1876. There are maps, property descriptions, paintings documenting the development of this area. On May 31, 1896, the Latter-day Saint Cannon Ward was established by members of the Cannon family, serving the area between 600 West to the west, Redwood Road to the east, Indiana Avenue to the north, 2700 South to the south; as of December 31, 1900, the Cannon Ward contained 61 families consisting of 331 people, 81 of which were children. In the 1890s several industries were established near the northeast corner of what is now Glendale, including a brickyard, biscuit factory, salt works, soup factory. In the early 20th century, railroad tracks bisected Salt Lake City. Industry and rail works isolated residential areas of the west side of Salt Lake City; the isolation and proximity to industry caused the residential areas to become working-class neighborhoods. Before the 1930s, Salt Lake City was polluted, having hazy air, the Jordan River was used a sewage disposal canal, making it a less desirable place to live near.
There are several houses on the east side of the Jordan River on present day California Avenue that were built prior to 1930. Based on aerial photography, a significant amount of residential development occurred in the Glendale neighborhood from 1937 to 1958, coincident with the post-World War II expansion; the first major subdivisions built in Glendale were built in early 1950s. The early subdivisions were part of the Glendale Gardens housing project, built to accommodate a large influx of families moving to Utah for the war effort, associated with the relocation of the Ninth Service Command to Fort Douglas, Utah; the area south of California Avenue, east of 1200 West, west of the Jordan River, was developed from 1947 to 1952. The area north of California Avenue and south of Glendale Drive was developed at this time; the main development in the western, industrial part of Glendale was the Utah Ordnance Plant. This area was operated by the Remington Corporation. In 1941, several buildings were constructed within the Utah Ordnance Plant area for the purpose of producing World War II ammunition.
The Utah Ordnance Plant was in operation from 1942 to 1943 and was in standby from 1944 to 1946. The area was decommissioned and sold after 1946; the Glendale area continued to develop to its present status. Most of the present apartment complexes were built during this time. ISalt Lake County worked with the Utah division of Parks to establish the Jordan River Parkway during this time. Of the 7601 acres of zoned land within Glendale's boundaries, 7.5% is commercial, 56.7% is manufacturing/industrial, 28.8% is special purpose, 7% is residential. As of 2010, Glendale has a population of 9962 people living in 2751 houses; the preliminary West Salt Lake City master plan outlines many improvements for the west side of Salt Lake City, including improvements to the area's entrances, upholding property maintenance standards, improving bicycle access, improving the appearance of roads in the neighborhoods. Bordering the north extent of the Glendale neighborhood, the 9 Line Trail is a new trail network connecting West Salt Lake City to the rest of the city.
Demand for real estate in the Glendale area, as of 2012 is above average for the U. S. and may signal increase in value of the area. Glendale is a neighborhood full of diversity. There are more than 25 different languages spoken in Glendale. Glendale Middle School Mountain View Elementary School Dual Immersion Academy Parkview Elementary School Riley Elementary School Glendale has 10 parks, totaling about 88 acres: 17th South River Park Bend-In-The-River Glendale Circle Glendale Park International Peace Gardens Jordan Park Jordan River Parkway Modesto Park Nelli Jack Park Weseman ParkMost of Glendale's parks, with the exceptions of Glendale Circle and Nelli Jack parks, are adjacent to the Jordan River; the International Peace Gardens park was conceived in 1939, dedicated in 1952, has areas dedicated to 27 different countries. Jordan Park is West Salt Lake's largest park and hosts the People's Market, a weekly market inspired by Kyle LaMalfa where locals can buy and sell a variety of items; the Jordan River Parkway connects several west Salt Lake City neighborhoods, the Jordan River is considered an important asset to many of West Salt Lake's citizens.
Glendale has an 18-hole municipal golf course. Glendale contains several
