Lee Benson has written slice-of-life columns for the Deseret News since 1998. Prior to that he was a sports columnist. His subjects have ranged from the Olympic Games (10 of them) to the arrival of the Jazz to the origin of fry sauce. A native Utahn, he grew up in Sandy and lives in the mountains with his family.
Whether on his bike, in a saddle or on the ski slopes, former Jazz big man Mark Eaton made friends wherever he went.
