On February 13, a musical group called Alma Melodioso had an Olympic experience. The California-based band, which plays Latin styles of music, was on its way from Monroe, Utah, to a gig in Park City. "Before we got to Provo, we had stopped at a convenience store," recalls drummer Bob Sanders. "While we were in the store, I asked the clerk if he knew about security checkpoints on the way to the Olympics because we were running late and were worried about traffic being backed up."
