Behind the Headlines

A loaded gun left in a bathroom, Utahns consider nuclear power and a SLCPD occupy an old Arctic Circle


A loaded gun was left in a bathroom at the Living Planet Aquarium, where the property has a posted ban on weapons, but Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill says no law was broken. At least 20 municipalities in Utah have signed on to buy power from a planned nuclear reactor, but environmental and economic costs are causing concern. And a new police station opens up on North Temple to combat crime pushed into the neighborhood by Operation Rio Grande.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Taylor Stevens, government and politics editor Dan Harrie, and editorial page editor George Pyle join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” online at or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
