The Salt Lake City council forbids Mayor Jackie Biskupski from suing over the inland port deal--unless she gets their permission first. The Provo Freedom Festival enacts a nondiscrimination policy, initially rejects all LGBTQ entries, and finally admits LGBTQ groups into the parade after meeting with them. And a former police detective sues the department that fired her, saying she was axed in retaliation for whistleblowing on a Salt Lake County Attorney. 

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Jessica Miller and Lee Davidson, columnist Holly Richardson 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 kcpw.org or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
