A gift worth its weight in gold

Former Olympic speedskating medalists Jack Shea and Bonnie Blair leave the podium at Salt Lake City's Gallivan Utah Center Wednesday after they helped kick off a community service program, coined the "Salt Lake City Gold Rush." The U.S. Speedskating Gold Council presented Utah with a gift of 2002 hours of community service, which will be performed throughout the next 2 1/2 years. "I am thrilled to be a part of this monumental event," said Blair, who won gold in 1988, 1992 and 1994. Shea won his two medals at the 1932 Games.
