Operation Rio Grande, Special Election Results and Lead on This Week's Behind the Headlines

Steve Griffin
The Salt Lake Tribune

The efforts of Operation Rio Grande result in the arrests of 87 people within the homeless community on its first day in action, but the ACLU of Utah calls the strategy "business as usual." Provo Mayor John Curtis clinches the Republican nomination in Utah's Third Congressional District, but Chris Herrod, the runner up, refuses to concede. And elevated levels of lead in some Utah schools' drinking water has prompted a request for tests of the metal in public schools statewide.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Courtney Tanner, Emma Penrod and Matt Piper; movie critic Sean P. Means; and columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Each Friday morning, stream “Behind the Headlines” online or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
