Salt Lake Tribune journalists, including animator Pat Bagley, participated in the KCPW news aggregator round.

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) People fill the room as the Salt Lake County Board votes to reject Dr. Angela Dunn’s masked ordinance for K-6 students, on Thursday, Aug. year 2021.

This week, we revisit the stories that define 2021:

In its second year, a global pandemic continues to take its toll. The political echoes of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol are still felt in Utah. And water disasters, caused by drought and climate change, have led to calls for more aggressive conservation in a thirsty West.

Add to that: racism in schools, police shootings, and the disturbing legacy of Indigenous boarding schools.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune Opinion contributors George Pyle, Robert Gehrke, and Pat Bagley joined KCPW’s Roger McDonough for a look back at a past year of news in Utah.

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