Defaced petroglyphs, Utah homelessness and Bears Ears’ cultural relics on ‘Behind the Headlines’

Join Salt Lake Tribune journalists for KCPW’s weekly news roundup.

(Zak Podmore | The Salt Lake Tribune) A petroglyph panel outside of Moab known as Birthing Rock was defaced by vandals on Monday night.

This week in Utah news:

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.

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at kcpw.org, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast. Join the live conversation by calling 801-355-TALK.
