Defaced petroglyphs, Utah homelessness and Bears Ears’ cultural relics

The Bureau of Land Management offers a $10,000 reward after a prehistoric petroglyph panel was defaced with the words “white power.” Utah’s new homeless services coordinator says that rather than building a new shelter, existing facilities need to transition people out of homelessness more quickly. And the challenge to protecting threatened cultural relics inside Bears Ears National Monument grows in urgency.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Zak Podmore and Bethany Rodgers, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
