An immigrant mother finds sanctuary in a Utah church; the price of the state prison rises; and new information surfaces on the Lake Powell Pipeline application process.

On the eve of her scheduled deportation, a young mother and her two children find sanctuary at the Unitarian Church in Salt Lake City. The cost of moving the state prison is turning out to be more than lawmakers originally told the public, as the price tag nears $700 million. And the state spent $33 million to file an unfinished application for the Lake Powell pipeline.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Paighten Harkins, Emma Penrod and Benjamin Wood as well as Editorial Page Editor George Pyle join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
