OGDEN — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Ogden Utah Temple is anticipated to reopen before the end of 2014 after being closed since April 2011 for reconstruction, according to Standard-Examiner correspondent Tom Christensen.

"We are confident we can have the temple rededicated in the latter half of 2014," said Elder William R. Walker, of the First Quorum of the Seventy and executive director of the church's Temple Committee. "The temple should be done by the end of the third quarter and have an open house and rededication before the end of the year."

I thought the DN had an "in" with the Church. So I was surprised the Ogden Standard Examiner knew about this before the DN did.

RG,

The LDS Church owns the DN. However, the DN is targeted to all Utahns and all Americans, even the world really. It's not surprising that a local paper talked about a local topic before a more mainstream paper that has other things to talk about.

Wonderful news!!

The Desnews' reporters are not LDS general authorities, though, nor are they of necessity members of "The Church". They seem to speak for themselves alone more often than not, unless on issues of morality. The opinions expressed, whether reported through nationally syndicated columns, or local reporters, are not necessarily the opinions of "The Church" but those of the reporters whether members of "The Church" or not. Check with General Conference and the writing of the prophets if you want the best perspectives.

Not being from Utah, I don't understand the need to so completely redo the temple. What was the reason given ( other than it and the Provo temple are cookie cutters from an odd design)?

I so badly wish the church would do a face life like this to the Seattle Temple. First Presidency, if, by some super slim chance you read these comments, PLEASE consider giving the Seattle Temple a much needed face lift. Thanks.
