Saying that the current mayor “has totally failed,” Rocky Anderson says he’s running for Salt Lake City Mayor again in 2023. A new lawsuit says Utah police intimidated animal-rights activists and violated their free speech rights. Bristlecone pines — the world’s most long-lived organisms — are being killed by beetle infestations. And new subdivisions take the place of well established orchards in northern Utah — upending longstanding traditions.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Leia Larsen, Brian Maffly and Leto Sapunar, as well as editorial page editor George Pyle, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
