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.
