Wirth

SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – You’ve probably had folks from out of town ask puzzled questions when you try to give them Utah addresses as East, West, North, and South in what we know to be a logical grid.

You may have to take notes, but Craig Wirth explains it all in this edition of Wirth Watching.
